Loving Boundaries was made in May 2018, on the Full Moon in Sagittarius. It contains a riotous 16 flowers: Artichoke, Blackberry, Bleeding Heart, Borage, Bougainvillea, Buddleia, California Poppy, Cecile Brunner Rose, Golden Yarrow, Honeysuckle, Lemon, Nasturtium, Plantain, Pomegranate,Yarrow, & Yellow Rose! All of these flowers came from my yard, the neighborhood and the local park, so, literally made from my community, which I love.
Boundaries are not a static wall. They are the complex web of our yes's and no's, the way we take up our own space, and the landscape of our personality, soul, body and spirit within the context of our community and world.
When we are fully embodied and present in ourselves, we take up space in a powerful, healthy way, that communicates our boundaries immediately, as well as backing up any words we might use. This essence supports us to shift from a place of collapse to full presence--in our bodies, in our space, in our relationships and out in the world.
This elixir helps us actualize ourselves, be grounded, and get more comfortable with inevitable discomfort of life/conflict/communication in order that we not collapse where we want to be clear and strong. It facilitates the release of bitterness, resentment and negative thoughts, while also providing an energetic sanctuary to mend our emotional wounds separate from the pressure to 'get over it' and move on. We can find our own closure, relief from the heaviness of the heart and the hurt.
Loving Boundaries boosts our self esteem and reconnects us to magic and our dreams, aligns the mind with the heart, and allows us to remain sensitive and open while maintaining the integrity of our psychic skin. If we tend to put up protection, this elixir helps us access a healthy vulnerability in balance with a healthy sense of self.
We can release living in the past while still learning from it, and trusting that the future holds good for us. Stale thinking transforms to vibrancy, and we can access solution, and resolution, that formerly felt impossible. We have access to clarity and decisiveness of thought with the ability to take favorable action towards our life and connection with others. Finally, we can connect with the ways we can nourish ourselves, calling in the Divine Mother archetype to be, receive and act in love.
