Last week, I shared story of the beginning of my adventure of making the milk thistle essence. (If you missed last week’s post, you can read it here.) Here is the rest of the story…
As I walked out to collect what I was certain was to be a failed attempt at making a milk thistle essence (despite the “message” from the milk thistle plant that all was in perfect order), the self-doubt I felt was immense.
As I reached down to pick up the crystal bowl housing the essence, I was almost knocked over by the intensity of the energy that ran through me. It took an enormous effort to walk the 15 metres back to my office without my legs giving out beneath me. I collapsed into a chair as soon as I could, still holding the bowl between both of my hands.
I tried to get a sense of what the energy I was feeling represented. I was almost breathless and became aware of nothing else except myself and the energy of the essence. The energy from the milk thistle essence felt very primal. It was earthy, strong, and rooted. It is an essence that radiates POWER.
Rather than helping to release and soften anger and rage, as I originally thought this essence would do (as discussed in Part 1), the milk thistle essence showed me that it was about the power to harness the fire, anger, and rage inside and turn it into positive action for change. It is a dynamic, strong, and transformative essence.
Milk thistle helps us to pull forth from our roots and our core energy and to stand up for what we believe and to stand strong in ourselves. It provides the strength and resiliency to get through anything.
That day, I learned a valuable lesson in TRUST. I learned to trust in the process and the miracles of nature, and the process of life and the guidance we are given. If the plant says “make me into an essence”, it must be the right time. If the sky turns overcast during the process (and consequently brightens up within 30 minutes of the process being completed), then it must be what was intended.
While sitting in meditation with the essence that day, I “downloaded” a new essence blend that would have the milk thistle essence at its centre.
The Power Essence contains 6 flower and gemstone essences that act together to strengthen inner resolve, call upon the power inherent in our being, give us strength and courage to express our individuality, and open our heart to become more of our true Self.
Looking back now, I see how this experience parallels life in so many ways. Everything seems to be going right; we are on the right path, the way is clear, we feel certain. Then things get cloudy, we falter and question whether we were really on the right track at all. In the end, if we continue to trust, following the signs as they come, one step at a time, we will end up with something much more powerful and authentic than we could have imagined when we first began.
This is the lesson of milk thistle, and the resonance that the Power essence carries.
