Spiritwater Gardens, located in Northern Wisconsin amidst thousands of lakes and forests, is founded and owned by Elizabeth Patric. Liz focuses on making flower essences, co-creating combinations of individual flower essence remedies with the assistance and guidance of nature spirits, fairies, devas, and other non-physical beings of love and light frequencies.
Her essences address physical, mental, emotional, sexual, financial and spiritual healing and transformation. Below is one of her recent blog posts.
Plant “signatures” are the “body language” of the flower or the way that the flower is attempting to communicate it’s message to us. That a plant communicates information to us through various signs, is a theory known as the “Doctrine of Signatures.”
A Swiss doctor named Theophrastus Bombastus Von Hohenheim (more conveniently known as Paracelsus) during the Renaissance, popularized this controversial (at the time and even in these times!) theory which promoted the idea that a plant’s color, shape, size, and structure (sacred geometry) were considered to be divine signs of its curative powers.
Although Paracelsus (educated in botany, mineralogy, natural philosophy and the “occult”) was fired from his prestigious position at the University of Basil for disrespect to the establishment, his pet theory has been an enduring theme for herbal medicine almost continuously every since.
A recent historical novel by Elizabeth Gilbert, (of Eat, Pray and Love fame) entitled “The Signature in All Things” explores this theory. It is the story of a woman in the 1850’s that grows up in a family dedicated to plant exploration. She becomes a bryologist, someone who studies mosses.
The flower in this photo is an example that demonstrates the Doctrine of Signatures. This is Trailing Arbutus and this plant’s service is to help us to find silence and be nourished by that silence in our inner and outer world.
If you can’t seem to find silence in your life, or alternatively, dislike being alone, this flower essence is for you. This flower is very hard to find in bloom and it grows only in mossy, swampy areas. Basically this flower lives in a cave!
This is a wonderful essence to take if you are going on a meditation retreat. If you are someone who craves silence, but rarely get the chance to experience it, this essence is fantastic for gaining much nourishment from the small bits of silence you are able to find. Our flower essence combination, SWEETNESS OF SOLITUDE, is for anything related to silence and solitude.
This is Columbine and her service is pure fun. I completely missed the whole party hat thing going on with this plant for years. Once I figured out her purpose which is for hosting celebrations that speak from the heart, how could you miss it — the fancy, silly hats?
Columbine reminds us that the time is NOW.
It is for those that are saying “well maybe” because you will never be hesitant again.
Once you spray this essence around, you will be hanging out the love lights and putting on your party hats to celebrate the infinite heart source of ONENESS in ever flowing, overflowing heart love. And there will be all kinds of nature spirits of love and light frequencies partying on through the night with you!
Our essence spray called RITUALS AND CELEBRATIONS is fun for hosting a party. The conversations are stimulating and harmonious and lively and last far into the night and the children are happy and contented as well!
You may decide to get a bottle to spray at your dull relatives this Thanksgiving. (Whoops, I mean of course, that your relatives are not dull, but maybe just need a little livening up!)
And of course don’t spray the essence directly at them, do it discreetly before the party starts. Imagine your aunt Agnes fully infused with the love and light energies of the nature spirits. . .
