Cactus Essences



Cactus are amazing plants! They thrive under conditions that may seem unbearable to most and have evolved some of the most incredible survival strategies that we too can learn much from. Even their ability to bloom without the more moderate conditions that many plants require never ceases to fascinate me and the sight of a desert in bloom in the spring and summer months is an incredible sight to behold! These amazing plants teach us that we too can bloom and thrive under any conditions. They also teach us that we too may need to have patience and persistence in order to "bloom" ourselves as many Cacti only bloom after many years of growth and development. For the "late bloomers" among us, this can be a most comforting and inspiring message to receive from the Cacti, that we too will one day burst forth in an amazing display of colour and beauty!

Affirmation - I Am Deeply Rooted & Centered Within My Own Being & From This All My Good Flows

When we choose to come from the deepest and most connected part of our Being, we easily attract all that is Bright, Good and Beautiful into our lives. There is within us a Presence that wants nothing more than to Guide us, Love us and help us to become all that we were meant to Be. Yet we must choose to stop and listen to it, heed its Guidance and always no matter what the outer circumstances appear to be, turn away from them and go within. For this is where all answers may be found. Once we find these answers within ourselves, it is so very empowering for we now understand that we are never alone, and there is nothing that this Presence within us cannot do through us. We only have to allow it.

Buffalo Gourd

Affirmation - My Life Is A Completely Positive Expression Of The Divine Truth Of All Good For All Of Life

This essence is very helpful for those who feel they must martyr or sacrifice themselves for someone else. Sacrificing yourself for another person never brings the positive results that one is hoping to see, it only creates greater pain and distress in the world. This essence is also very helpful for those who feel guilty because they have many things in their lives that they can feel really good about yet they also feel that their joy is undeserved when others appear to have less than they themselves do. This essence helps to teach these folks how they can give someone else a positive hand-up so that if they connect with someone who wishes to make positive changes, they are in a much better position themselves to do so.

This essence helps to clear this negative programming so one can move forward and claim the Good that is rightfully theirs.
