picked up some Rue while plant shopping today. Well, I picked it up
and put it back down, not wanting to buy something I didn't know how to
use and isn't on my list. I heard in my spirit, "You're gonna "rue"
the day you didn't buy that plant." It was on sale for 2.99, how wrong
can I possibly go? 2.99 and at a chain "mart" where they aren't in
the practice of marketing obscure and kinda last century medicinal
herbs. Must be destiny. "Rue, welcome to the Farmacy. Which empty
spot would you like to move into?"
Reading up on what other
essence makers have said about Rue, it's flowing with the theme of
things here lately, and that theme would be boundaries and protection
from disturbing or destructive output from others. We're all over this
at the moment, having just released a new Bouquet Blend called "Yarrow Shield"
will help those who are sensitive to environments, and other people's
moods and energies. I especially recommend it for those who are in
healing or care-giving professions where the tendency is to take on
what others are going through. Establishes safe boundaries and is
protective against intentional attack or passive absorption of
negativity and discord.
My plant choices are pretty much
Spirit-led. Many flowers come from dreams, people who don't know me,
prophesy to me in flowers, not realizing that I read deeper into those
than what they see. The Bouquet Blends work similarly. I don't come
out with new ones lightly. It's too easy for me to come up with loads
of them, I enjoy the creative aspect of naming and picking label
graphics. I could offer a zillion products if it weren't for the
inventory nightmares. The reality is, I wait until I know. And I know
when I have half a dozen people at one time that all need to be on the
same blend that I haven't released yet. By the way, if I don't have the
Bouquet Blend you want, you need a custom combo.
to be a timing element to some extent. Essences that were in heavy
rotation 2-3 years ago, are not seeing much use today, and essences
that are coming up this season have not seen a lot of previous use.
It's gotten to where I have a shelf so I can easily find the "necessary
for now" essences. What you should be getting out of this is that
you're not alone. I don't know all of what you're going through, but I
can see what is leaving the office and the patterns between seemingly
disconnected buyers. You're in the same season that many of us are
in. Just keep moving forward. Just as flowers respond to the times
and seasons, so should we.
I believe this is a time to push
off anything that would keep us from moving forward. This is a time to
tie up loose ends so you can be ready in every sense of the word, to
step into new opportunities. This means shucking off responsibilities
that we really shouldn't be taking responsibility for, dealing with our
insecurities, and not caving into procrastination and self-sabotage.
We have a new "M&M" (Manifestation and Motivation)
blend for some of that. Resolve it within yourself to be alert to and
say yes to the new opportunities that are coming at you, no matter how
scary, crazy or impractical, if its what you truly want. Some if you
will have an opportunity to make a "lateral" move, that won't really
seem like the direction you ultimately dreamed of, but it's a stepping
stone. Its a repositioning to line you up with what you never even
imagined you'd be doing, but is the perfect placement for you. I pray
that you recognize those things as they come up. Watch your decision
making process, are negative emotions such as fear, lack of confidence,
unworthiness factoring in? Those things shouldn't get to have a
voice. Don't let a negative emotion pull your life off course from
what you were born to do. I don't want you to "rue" the day you said
"no" when deep in your heart, the answer was "yes".
