"If you want to sing out, sing out....If you want to be free, be free, cuz there's a million ways to be, you know that there are!"
Being YOU gives you access to vitality, creates an effortless radiance, exudes mojo and inherently cultivates a longevity state of mind. It's also practical, not just an airy fairy or lofty spiritual goal. Being You is likely to yield the most fruit for your body, mind & soul-in terms of life force, abundance of health and wealth, relationships and personal insight. Being you also includes recognition of patterns and constructs of relating that are based on manipulation, passive-aggressive, complacency/over accommodation and/or nostalgia and emotional stickiness. While current situations in one's life may have control over lifestyle strategies and communication patterns, ultimately, alchemy involves honest self-reflection about how one acts and relates to others. Does personal power come from being a victim or a caregiver? Is subtle communication a means for exerting control over another or keeping them waiting as a mechanism for connecting emotionally? Only you can determine if your own subtle patterns and styles of relating are effectively sustainable, and make changes accordingly.
Lady of the Lotus has created a flower essence remedy for this purpose: Be You Flower Essence Blend is designed to support your personal intention and commitment to your own path to freedom. Action creates waves and waves create solid matter. Actions such as thoughts, emotional patterns and ways of relating to others are part of this wave matter that sustains reality. You can use botanicals such as ours to support balance, heal and nourish the body, soul and spirit. They'll also assist you in accessing creativity, inspiration and more mundane matters such as hormone balance and relief from sore muscles or a headache. Alchemy means all of this. And it also means that you change as you work with these botanicals. Your intention sets the tone and helps to determine the outcome. Interacting purposefully with your body, beauty and health care paves the way for new levels of insight-new ways of being you.
Engaging your senses and mind with nature's intelligence aligns you with your own 'right relationship'-to yourself! From this place of alignment (some call it 'true nature' or 'natural essence'), arises a fundamental action of being in the world. Unique to you, this action continually unfolds as ever refining expression of the personality and elemental traits that make up the essence of you. Your palette may be this lifetime, and your self may be infinite. It is the convergence of the two that creates the territory of your inner life, seeking to engage with the outside world.
