I looked up Goldenrod flower essence a month or so ago and it struck a chord for me.
I read that it is good for people who are fearful of being judged by others when they reveal their true selves. I realized I still have some fear about being a weirdo and alienating people if I really let myself be free and open.
I decided I would make an essence for myself as soon as I had a minute.
But I never took a minute.
And when I finally looked out at the lush fields of yellow goldenrod with my scissors and bowl ready.
The fields were dry, gray and crispy.
Ack! I missed my chance to make medicine to help me bust through my fear of being a freak.
(Here is a blurb about the flower essence from a website I found that quotes the FES book which I love)
Then lo and behold! I looked out on my front stoop after the bus drove away with Lily.
There was a sweet sturdy little goldenrod blooming!
I ran inside and clipped half of it into my clear glass bowl filed with spring water.
And put it under our magical peach tree for a bit.
When it's ready I'll decant some of the water into a sterilized jar and add some brandy to preserve the vibrational power of the blooming flower.
Then I'll dilute it even more with spring water until I have a potent little bottle filled with goldenrod flower energy.
Then I'll take it and see what happens.....
