"The action of these flower remedies is to raise our vibrations and open up our channels for the reception of the Spiritual Self, to flood our natures with
the particular virtue we need, and wash out from us the fault that is causing the harm. They are able, like beautiful music or any glorious uplifting thing, which gives us inspiration, to raise our very natures, and bring us nearer to our souls and by that very act to bring us peace and relieve our sufferings."
~ Dr. Edward Bach, founding father of flower essences

This week, The Weekly Beet reports on the magical, healing powersthat flower essences have on the mind, the body, and the spirit! Mary Kent thanks Gaia, revealing why we all could stand to add a bit of flower power to our lives.
'You can learn a lot of things from the flowers, especially in the month of June' sang the flowers in Walt Disney's Alice in Wonderland. And, boy, were they right, as flowers do have more to teach us than many of us would even care to learn! For example, the stillness of a flower can be most useful when wanting to learn about the state of our mind and the vibrant colors of a flower's petals are enough to heighten anyone's sleeping senses. The key to this teaching is that just like water, flowers contain a hidden, healing message that lies far beyond what we can actually see. Hidden deep within the dainty, velvet of each petal, flowers contain an energetic power that can heal, assist, and get to the root of any human dis-ease or illness. But, to arrive at this truth, one must have an understanding of quantum physics, which has proven the human body is more than just a physical one. The human body at its core contains an essence of energy that is the foundation of the emotional, mental, and spiritual aspects of one's being. When we understand this, we can begin to accept that the cause of most human suffering is simply due to an imbalance of energies. Simply stated: our bodies begin to harmonize - no matter how sick -when it is returned to a state of well-being, love, peace, and joy. Flower essences, a form of vibrational medicine, can help us make this journey home.
Whether we've chosen to heal a sickness or to embark on a spiritual journey, the universe intuitively begins its work aligning things properly and somehow the right people always come into our paths with just the right answers we are seeking. I know this well, as it has happened to me many times! One such universal gift came to me years ago from a dear friend in France, who was using flower essences on her Reiki clients to heal them of emotional difficulties. I was open to things of this nature and was happy to try something that might make me feel better. She mixed me a concoction of a few essences in water and I immediately felt more at ease from the symptoms of jetlag, eating too much French food, and from low energy. The essences she used were made by the founding father of all flower essences called Dr Edward Bach, an English homeopath who lived in the early part of the twentieth century. Dr. Bach was responsible for the initial 38 remedies and found that people healed faster when they acknowledged the relationship between their emotions and their health. For example, if one has fear of the unknown, one would take Aspen, for selfishness one would take Chicory, and for uncertainty in the direction of one's life one would take Wild Oat. His essences, called Bach flowers, are available at any health food store. Click here to find out what you may need.
Keep in mind, Bach isn't the only producer of flower essences available. There are many other incredible companies to choose from such as Perelandra, Alaskan Essences, Star Essences, FES, Australian Bush Essences, Orchid Essences, and of course Gaia's Own. I interviewed Kathryne-Alexis Weygand, owner of Gaia's Own, which is by far one of the best flower essence producers in the United States. She came highly recommended from the owner of The Middle Way, who currently sells the essences on the East Coast. I was lucky enough to chat with Kathryne-Alexis about what she does and to even receive a consultation with her, which is an ABSOLUTE must! She is offering a special for Weekly Beet readers.

MK: Can you enlighten us as to what flower essences really are?
Kathryne-Alexis: For me, flower essences are a natural product that have been used for ions to heal separation, to expand consciousness, and to repair the physical form your spirit dwells in. They create a beautiful vibrational bridge for awakening and balancing well-being. They can be made fresh for immediate use or preserved and maintained for many years. Flower essences offer specific vibrational signatures or energy patterns that are transferred from the flower into the water when made. These energy patterns are understood and described by the essence maker according to their skill in communication with other life forms, their higher selves and nature.
MK: What are energy patterns?
Kathryne-Alexis: Everything is energy. A flower's energy pattern is a packet of unique information that defines the purpose or gift of that plant here on earth. If it resonates with our needs and intentions, we will be drawn to use it. When several flower essences are blended together, they create a bigger, more complex pattern. They can be registered in quantum technology like the EPFX as a complex
signature, and when photographed with colored aura cameras the before and after of taking them under the tongue can be seen in the shifts of colors between photos. Each individual will respond uniquely to the energy packet. Of the hundreds of Gaia's Own Nature Essences, each flower has transfered its unique energy pattern of support into a greater union in our purpose of 'nature's alliance in healing for soul integration and self-empowerment' .
MK: That is absolutely fascinating! And, it makes so much sense when we understand! So, how exactly do you make the flower essences?
Kathryne-Alexis: Technically, flower essences are infusions made of cut flower heads (at their peak bloom) combined with pure water that has been solarized (placed in the sun) for a number of hours and then stabilized (to maintain the vibrational pattern created) with some form of distilled alcohol, vinegar, or red shiso preservative.
MK: What is red shiso?
Kathryne-Alexis: The word shiso in Japanese means purple leaf. Red shiso is used as a flower essence preservative at Green Hope Farms, another essence maker. The state of New Hampshire would not allow them to use alcohol so she was shown red shiso plus vinegar.
MK: How long have you been making flower essences?
Kathryne-Alexis: As a child I made fresh floweraides and teas and shared natures gifts intuitively without training. After leaving the film industry, I was trained and taught briefly for Star Flower Essences. Sparked by a direct, loving invitation from Gaia, Mother Earth, to create her own special line of essences, a dream became a vision, which was created into my business in 1998,
Gaia's Own Nature Essences. My company is founded on Gaia's desire to assist her own children and humanity through the offering of wild flower and crystal light essences, as well as other vibrational creations with Nature.
MK: What exactly do flower essences do for the body, the mind, and the spirit?
Kathryne-Alexis: Flowering plants maintain a connection to the invisible or divine blueprint, offering a pathway for humanity to reconnect with their true nature and non-physical consciousness. Essences help create and maintain, if taken on a regular basis, the vibrational levels that can and will uplift stuck energies, repair breaks in the electrical current of the body, and stimulate positive natural states of love, peace, happiness and more as the individual allows. Here's a bit more of what people can expect from taking flower essences:
- A healing reconnection of breaks in the body's communication or electrical system.
- A flow of well-being that raises the frequency of your body, mind, and emotions.
- An alignment with your true or authentic spiritual nature.
- An understanding of who we are, where we come from, and our vibrational gifts from Source or God.
- A healing and repairing through a process called horizontal healing that raises the frequency or vibration of water in each cell of our body when any essence is taken under the tongue or in water.
MK: Yes! I feel like when I started taking your flower essences my body's electricity got recircuited! It was a weird feeling, but I knew the essences were working on my energetic vibrations - meaning my emotional or what we're now calling the electrical body. I am taking your Breaking Free Essence, which has been a total miracle in assisting me in letting go of negative thought patterns, attachments to my past, and to my ego! It's so incredible how these flowers can literally transform emotional aspects of what our bodies are going through. It's like the flowers have an innate understanding of our core emotions. WOW! You have so many wonderful blends to choose from like Be Your Best, Body Beautiful, Emergency Relief, Feeling Safe, Sacred Marriage, Stress Less, and Take Your Power. What are your top selling essences and how do we know what to take?
Kathryne-Alexis: Family Harmony, Immune Protection, Inner Peace, Cosmic Fire, Modern Mystic, and Sacred Marriage. My suggestion is to ask for what essence will help you align to the desire from where you are right now vibrationally. It is much easier to shift what is ready to transform, than to push against an old block of resistance. The essences help you do that. Someone can test for you or you can learn and use dowsing, pendulums, or kinesiology. Your body intelligence knows and will direct you with a yum or a yuck feeling, thought, or body pull.
MK: Kinesiology is a great topic for a Beet!
That's muscle testing, as in your body gives you the answer, for those of you who don't know. I was lucky enough to have a consultation with you, which I must say has really helped me integrate some final emotional stuff I was processing. Will you let our readers know what you do in your consultations?
Kathryne-Alexis: The consultation is offered to address current events in your life and possible ways to take action, create solutions, and manifest outcomes in your best and highest interest. Trust that the most important topic will surface to be balanced, understood, and empowered. This session works directly in communion with your higher self to balance energy blocks, belief systems, and our choices that are affecting our daily life now. Each session is highly interactive so be prepared to share deeply and as succinctly as possible. They are recorded for mp3 or iPod download or on cassette if needed.
MK: Yes! I have my session on my cute, purple iPod mini! Each time I go back and listen I feel like I'm receiving a healing all over again! Kathryn-Alexis, you have an incredible gift and your essences have worked some divine magic on me. So, can you let our readers know how many drops does one normally need to take of flower essences?
Kathryne-Alexis: Five or six drops under the tongue five or six times a day. Or, you can add the drops to a bottle of water.
MK: Why is it that people don't take flower essences more often? And, why don't people know who beneficial they can be? Is it because vibrational medicine is still rather a secret?
Kathryne-Alexis: Perhaps our collective, fear programming resists giving up control to surrender into love. But, through word of mouth and sharing like you are doing with your newsletter, I think people are beginning to allow their intuitive side and body to guide them to products that serve where they are and where they desire their body, mind and spirit to be. Perhaps in this now, we are just now ready to remember and embody our sacred power and connection to our spiritual nature and source.
MK: Yes, I definitely think we are at a moment in history where the secrets of healing are coming out in the open and people are more willing to accept other avenues. Of all the flower essences I have ever tried, your's are absolutely out of this planet! Why do you think that is? Is it because you incorporate the spiritual component?
Kathryne-Alexis: I feel it is my love and desire to serve those choosing to remember their true alignment, happiness, and self-expression in a natural, fun-hearted way. My daily connection to Mother/Father Earth and to nature has allowed me to share my enthusiasm, and belief that we can work with nature to find vibrational solutions to our challenges. Believing in our connection makes anything possible! This means Gaia and the nature spirits lead the way, pointing out the flower and matching the next vibration needed by humanity in the awakening and ascension (meaning the process of raising out of the control of fear into love).
MK: Yes, my new way of being is living in the moment with LOVE, not with FEAR. Your essences are helping me to heal a lot of fears that Mercury Exposure held me in AND other programmed fears I created along the way as a result! It's a new way of life for me, but one I am embracing every day! Thank you, Kathryne-Alexis. Your work is very much needed on the planet at the moment and it's an honor to let our readers know about your company.
It's time to add a bit of flower power to your life! Don't miss a Beet. Stay tuned for next week.
