The Alaskan Flower, Gem and Environmental Essences
The Alaskan Flower Essence Project have 72 essences in the Practitioner Kit. They have been prepared from wild and domestic flowers growing in the state of Alaska. The development of this kit spanned eight years of field work and required thousands of miles of travel throughout the Alaska wilderness.
The majority of these essences were prepared in the vast central interior of the state. This bio-region lies between the broad and sweeping expanse of the Brooks Range to the north and the majestic Alaska Range to the south. Plant families in the central interior are very widespread in their range and dominant in their habitat. This means that there are a relatively small number of plant species, but these species occur in huge communities that often extend in unbroken profusion for hundreds of miles. These plants form the vegetative core of the northern or boreal forests of the planet, and the essences prepared from them help us transform our core life patterns-those ways of thinking, feeling, and doing that have the most dominant and widespread impact in our lives.
Some of the Alaskan flowers, including those from the extreme northern interior and alpine areas of the state, are somewhat rare in occurrence and more specialized in their growth patterns. Summer here seldom lasts for more than 65 days, however, plants grow at a phenomenal rate during this time due to the constant presence of sunlight. Consequently, essences prepared from these plants express an intensity that encourages us to resolve our issues of trust, self acceptance, and openness to abundance, so that we can experience the fullness of life in each moment.
There are also 12 essences made from green flowers. These essences are evocative of some of the most subtle levels of healing that have ever been explored with flower essences. Steve Johnson says of their creation, "During their preparation, we were constantly asked to open our hearts to increasingly subtler levels of healing energy. As we responded to these invitations, we were shown how these essences clear levels of pain and trauma held deep in the heart, a process that enables us to come to a point of true balance within ourselves, and consequently, to a place of genuine contact and partnership with nature".
The Alaskan Flower Essence Project offer not onlythe 72 Flower Essences, but also a set of 48 Gem Essences and 12 Environmental Essences. This range has some of the deepest and most subtle qualities of all the essences. The space in Alaska is vast, and it has a wide variety of habitats. Plants growing above the Arctic Circle, for example, have to successfully germinate, grow, flower and produce viable seeds in only two months before the icy winter kills everything again. This gives the individual Alaskan Essences characteristics that work to heal the deepest and most protected core patterns of our beings. You may find that you are drawn to use other sets first, but if you work through and release layers of historic patterning, it is likely that the Alaskan Essences will become more and more relevant to you.
That being said, the Alaskan Sacred Space Sprays are the most wonderful introduction to Flower Essences as a whole and you will find these extraordinary combinations of flower, gem and environmental essences together with essential oils delightful to use and helpful in many stressful situations.
