Flowers! I never really appreciated flowers while I was growing up. My deep connection did not come till much later when I began to garden extensively. And it was years after that that I discovered how truly magical they are.
I was first introduced to flower essences in 2006. It was a new concept for a newly awakening Caroline, but one that totally lit me up. My Reiki master at the time encouraged me to purchase ones from a popular farm and I did, but they were boring and flat to me and reeked of alcohol. There was another farm that was calling to me - Green Hope Farm in Meriden, New Hampshire. My heart knew where to guide me and I listened.
Molly and Jim Sheehan own Green Hope Farm. It is where they raised their four children and where Molly and her staff work co-creatively with the Angels and Elementals of the farm. They guide her in setting up the gardens, in creating just the right combination of flower essences, and in running her business.
Years ago there was a raid on Green Hope Farm and the police came and seized all of Molly’s flower essence bottles. At that time, she was using alcohol as a preservative in her essences, as is the usual practice. If you have ever been to New Hampshire, then you know that only the state can sell alcohol and Molly was in violation. The Angels explained it was all part of a bigger plan. They instructed her to plant Red Shiso, a member of the mint family, and use it with vinegar to preserve her new line of essences. This system worked beautifully with the Shiso acting as a stabilizer and giving her essences a lovely red glow.
Flowers contain wisdom which is then transmitted into water and stabilized with the Red Shiso. When consumed orally, spritzed on the skin and air, or bathed in, this wisdom is shared on an energetic level. Our electrical system can then learn from this vibrational wisdom and develop new patterns, new ways of experiencing challenges, new ways of tapping into our creativity, and new ways of connecting more deeply with our own inner truths, thus moving forward on our journey in a more empowered and authentic way. Flower essences contain electrical information, are safe for animals and people to work with, and do not interact with medicines.
Molly’s business has grown considerably through the years as has her amazing collection of flower essences from the farm and from all over the world. I have worked with these essences for many years with clients, with my family, with our animal family members, and with myself. I love all of the essences and today we will explore ten that I have worked with extensively.
Ten Favorite Flower Essences from Green Hope Farm
Golden Armor provides information to our electrical systems about how to buffer and protect us from computer screens, radiation and atmospheric changes, aberrant astral energies, human negativity, dissonant sounds, viruses, bacteria, man made dissonance in the airwaves and any other kind of vibrational bombardment we experience.
- Animals almost invariably need this remedy because they are deeply affected by the immense amount of man made dissonance in the airwaves.
- The Angels encourage all the people and animals at the farm take Golden Armor every day.
The Angels explain, 'Alignment grows increasingly important. As the vibration of the planet increases, things speed up. If you are out of alignment, you feel the consequences sooner. This Essence helps you stay aligned with the divine plan for you. It supports an alignment of your mental, emotional, etheric and physical bodies. It helps life force flow better through your etheric body into your physical body. This brings greater energy to your system.
- Alignment is an expansive joyful centered experience of life and purpose. It brings a lessening of burdens, an increase of happiness and a palpable feeling of wellness.
Family river cleanser
Black Currant heals and cleanses our etheric/memory body of detritus from seven generations of our ancestors as well as from our past lives. This means we no longer have to carry the baggage of our previous incarnations or our ancestors' baggage but are free to regain an unparalleled level of energetic vitality.
Black Currant also positively impacts others in our family. The Angels explain 'Families are like rivers. If you clean up one section of the river, the cleansing immediately impacts the rest of the river. Almost all families contain personality garbage in the form of mistaken and unhelpful ego ideas and patterned behaviors. The miracle is that while these mistaken notions appear strong as well as omnipresent, their defenses can be breached anywhere in time by anyone in the family willing to do this cleansing work. This brings energetic freedom to the person doing the cleansing work and opens the door for spiritual rebirth to all in the family river.'
"Illuminates our family of origin's divine strengths and weaknesses so we are free to choose our own way"
Bloodroot acts as a very powerful beam of light that cuts through the surface muck of our family of origin's ego driven patterns to illuminate the family's divine wisdom. When we know these divine strengths, it is easier to disentangle from our family of origin's ego driven behaviors and release ourselves from any belief in personality driven familial judgments or counterproductive familial habits that have colored our lives. Instead we can experience ourselves as children of God, free to use our earth family's strengths while releasing the family's illusions and personality driven patterns.

Animals as well as many people especially children act as sponges, absorbing negativity wherever they go. It is easy for this group to collect too much negativity and get electrically overcharged.
