In the middle of difficulty lies opportunity.
– Albert Einstein
While in the Pacific Northwest, I learned to make flower essences and that some plants have helpful energies. In this belief system:
- Heartsease provides gentle comfort and solace for a broken heart.
- Bleeding Hearts vibrations release the pain of broken relationships.
- Self-Heal is a mint whose name means, “that with which one may cure oneself without the help of a surgeon.”
- Snapdragons slay harsh and negative speech patterns.
One of my most inspiring flowers is the Black-Eyed Susan. With its sun-gold petals radiating from a dark center, this perennial visually and beautifully expresses this week’s Einstein wisdom, that from life’s shadows, brightness can bloom.
BTW, this flower discussion is not meant to replace medical advice but to offer fresh insights. As I was taught, flower essences have subtle, gradual and enduring effects. Use should be guided by those with substantial understanding of the practice. Read more about healing with flowers.
Blessings & best wishes.

Here are ways to make sure you know who and what you’re voting for:
