Violet Flower Essence
Healing Properties: Violet flower essence is especially attuned to highly evolved and fragile souls, assisting with self-liberation, self-expression and individuation, while retaining the refined and tender qualities of their feminine beauty. In a sense, violet flowers call out, ďCome and see me,Ē thereby, balancing a force of receptive beauty with a new found personal will. The Purple Violet flower remedy bridges the virtues and qualities of the violet with the inner foundation of self worth and courage.
Garden of violets is a paradise,
Where the reverence of Eve is Reborn.
With passion and self-love within me,
I embody the beauty of Earth's purity.
Within my soul, I am free.
Latin: Viola Odorata
Archetype: Eve. Used as a primary scapegoat of patriarchal Western culture, vilified by ďhis-storyĒ and sacrificed as an evil temptress, it will take a radical leap of consciousness to bring Eve into the future with us. Eve, in Hebrew text, is Isha, meaning ďwoman.Ē In allowing Eve freedom from historical bondage, we free ourselves from bondage to patriarchal systems and myths.
Signature: Long-stalked runners, heart-shaped leaves clustered in rosettes, and sweet-scented flowers blooms from April through June.
Healing: Eve has come to you today to offer you the opportunity for true liberation at all levels. An inverted heart-shaped violet leaf, representing devotion and transcendent wisdom, covers her heart. Her hair, symbolizing the ego, is adorned with birds, symbolizing the soul, and blends naturally into the Tree of Knowledge which stands behind her. In this way, the false dichotomy between self-consciousness and spiritual growth is overcome and we begin to understand that Eve's eating the fruit of the Tree of Knowledge did not instigate a Fall into Original Sin. Rather, it introduced into the world for the first time, the real possibility of fully embracing and consciously knowing our own innate divinity.
Nature is your guide and consort, assisting you as you create the vision of a New World; one that honors difference without hardening into dualism; one that achieves a balance between heart and mind.
In peace and tranquility, Eve sits among the violets as the newly-hatched serpent rebirths itself. This is a time of celebration, for life's mysteries are beginning a new cycle of rejuvenation. You are invited into Eve's sacred garden. How might you weave the world as you self-liberate into the image of a New Woman? Nature surrounds you as your sister and the tender violets beckon you to enter into divine union with your Original Self.
