Understanding and Addressing Loss with Flower Essences

By Mark D'Aquila | Comments Off on Understanding and Addressing Loss with Flower Essences

IMG_0998The feeling of loss is perhaps one of the hardest aspects of being a human. Unique to humans and higher mammals loss is not easily dealt with by the mind and can be hard to grasp emotionally. We can experience deep grief from the loss and death of a parent, lover, pet, title, position or object.

To symbolize loss I choose the picture of a sunset because it  exemplifies the transient and temporal aspects of life. Sunsets are beautiful and they are something we cannot hold we can only enjoy them in the moment. Life is precious and loss can feel and be devastating. Having support can help us as we learn and grow from our life experiences.

One reason I love flower essences is that they offer a rare level of support for the soul and personality dealing with loss. They work deeply with the soul and psyche to help us process, re-calibrate to and understand loss. Flower essences soothe the emotions, mind and spirit by connecting us directly with the living support of the plant kingdom. Below is a list of some amazing essences for addressing feelings of loss and despair.

Flower Essences for Treating Loss

Sweet Chestnut flower essence is indicated for times of deep pain and agony accompanied by feelings of despair and loneliness. Feelings like this are likened to the ‘dark night of the soul’ when the soul is tested by periods of dark despair. Out of the 38 Bach flower remedies use Sweet Chestnut to foster spiritual depth. Sweet Chestnut  instills in us the faith that we can overcome adversity through spiritual communion.

Love Lies Bleeding flower essence supports our ability to move beyond personal pain, suffering and mental anguish. It supports us in developing trans-personal vision and compassionate acceptance of karma. It treats intense pain due to isolation and over-personalization of one’s pain.

Forget Me Not flower essence treats feelings of loneliness and isolation, especially after the loss of a loved one. Forget Me Not, helps one feel more connection to the spiritual world, helping one to gain a mindfulness of the trans-personal aspects of relationships.

Confederate Violet flower essence supports deep relaxation of the nervous system, it helps one to shed identification with pain and trauma and find greater inner peace. It is useful in the release process to support stabilization, trust and inner gentleness.

It is recommended to use these remedies in combination to address the many aspects our soul and psyche deal with on its healing journey.

Flower Essences for Happiness

By Mark D'Aquila | Comments Off on Flower Essences for Happiness

flower essences for happinessWhat are the flower essences for happiness? Is there a flower essence for happiness? The answer is yes and no, there are many flower essences for happiness. And, there is no single essence for happiness for everyone. Before we get into a discussion of flower essences for happiness lets take a deep look. In my work as a flower essence therapist I’ve found it helpful to first clear negativity and from there support my clients to build happiness.

First Clear Negative Energy

Negative energy is dense, heavy and at cross purpose to the lighter emotions of happiness and joy. To really assist my clients and be of true service I have developed the “Negative Energy Release Process”. I developed this process because the core of negativity needs to first be addressed before other work can begin. Often by simply clearing this core piece of negativity happiness naturally arises.

What is the Negative Energy Release Process?

It is a simple process where I use a diagnostic sheet to identify the core negative factors and possible co-factors underlying the negative energy in your life.  This can range from negative beliefs all the way to entities or attachments. I also identify blocked chakras, lodged traumas, obstructed meridians and more. Once all this information is gather I  identify the essences needed to clear the negativity.

Once the essences are selected I administer one dose of each essence. Then I guide the essences deep into the system using a hands on healing technique which lasts 20 minutes. This process can also be used for distance healing similar to the way Reiki can be administered from a distance.


They include a general feeling of lightness, improved relationships, a more optimistic outlook and a sense of being free from obstructions. The Negative Energy Release Process can help just about everyone. At some degree on some level there is negativity blocking us from experiencing happiness and expressing our full potential.

Would you like to clear the negativity in your life?

Please contact me directly if you are interested in this process. I work with clients all over the country and I have used this technique to help my phone clients as well as my in person clients. This powerful process can make a dramatic improvement in the quality of your life. I can be reached at 805-633-0094, treatments last 1 hour and are $125.00.

After this process I then work with my clients to identify the flower essences for happiness that will best support their personal growth.

Chakra Clearing Oil

This is a very special oil, the recipe was passed down to me from my teacher. I was told that I was not allowed to sell this oil but I can give it away. This is the first time I am offering this to the public. The oil contains African Sandalwood and potent gem essences and it was charged for a full moon cycle using special directions. I have been using this oil with great success. Simply apply a small amount to a chakra you feel is blocked, massaging it into the skin in a clockwise direction.

This oil is not for sale but I am giving a small vial away with all purchases over $50.00.

I am excited to introduce: ElementalGarden Remedies. These are flower essences that I’ve been  researching for the past 8 years. The flower essenes in this collection were made in Mt. Shasta, France, Hawaii and California. They cover a wide range and have many useful applications, below is a list of some customer favorites from the collection.

Money Plant
This essence has a few functions: one of the most notable is its effect on self esteem, it works to build and foster feelings of worthiness. This is the first step towards realizing abundance and success, feeling worthy of it. This essence helps us to feel and know our worth, which is also helpful with stopping self destructive habits.

The second is a perceptual shift towards money, it helps to shift our awareness about money and how we use it in our life. One of the ways it does this is by helping us to realize that we can experience happiness. That it is not related to how much or how little money we have. Another way it helps to foster prosperity is by changing the way we identify with money. Money is an energy represented by dollar bills and coins. When we get stuck limiting our believes to only dollar bills and coins this essence helps to remind us that money is universal energy and universal energy is always available.

The multi faceted way this essence works is builds self esteem and feelings of worthiness. It helps us to re-connect with money on an energetic level as well as physical. It also helps us shift any negative believes we have about money. Helping us have a more relaxed, positive and enjoyable relationship with money. Purchase Money Plant Flower Essence.

Before you call in your abundance with Money Plant, clear out your negativity, low vibrations and negative feelings with Ti Plant Flower Essence.

ti plantTi Plant Flower Essence
Ti Plant Cordyline terminalis ‘Clears the Path to Power’ casting off low, sluggish energy which drains us physically, emotionally and mentally. It restores integrity to positive train of thought. It also offers protection from obsessive thoughts and carries more light into the body. Ti strengthens our willpower.

This plant was brought to Hawaii by the Polynesian settlers hundreds of years ago. The ti plant had many uses in Hawaiian culture, it was used to wrap food, as fabric, ‘grass’ skirts were made from woven ti leaves. The plant is also reported to protect ones property from Pele’s lava flow, spiritually it was used to break hexes, bring good luck and protection. Purchase Ti Plant Flower Essence.

Mountain Apple 2Mountain Apple Flower Essence
To support all the new changes you are making use Mt. Apple flower essence. This is a new and exciting flower essence from the island of Kauai. It has been in research for the past 3 years and I am happy to start offering this to the public. Mountain Apple flower essence cleanses the energy field and begins the process of helping us to ‘unhook’ from old energy patterns. It works in a toriodal fashion, there is a flow of energy that comes down through the center and out the bottom. It circulates in this spinning fashion to clear stuck energy.

The essence of Mountain Apple is great to use during any times of change, transformation and cleansing. It helps keep a fresh flow of energy moving through your field. It will help you to ‘unhook’ from old energy patterns and ways of being.

Clears patterns and imprints from the energy field, cleansing limiting imprints from the past. Helps us move forward into new rolls and states of being that we choose and that are not imposed. A very useful essence for helping to break free from old influences, clears debris from the energy field that anchor one to ways that are in cross purpose with the direction we want life to go. Purchase Mountain Apple Flower Essence.

Clearing the Past

By Mark D'Aquila | Comments Off on Clearing the Past

bottlebrushMaking a clean break with the past is sometimes hard to do. Our emotions are easily attached to particular people, places and times. It is nice to reminisce but when we need to move on we need to move on. So much is changing in my life and the lives of many people I meet. So much is changing in society as well and things are changing rapidly.

This leaves us the choice of holding on or letting go. While it maybe easy to say just let go, we all know it is hard to do sometimes. Letting go is like a process of unraveling and we need to follow it through to the end.

All the change and need to let go prompted me to formulate a very specific flower essence combination to help us yield to the forces of change. This special blend of essences is designed to help insulate us as we move through our process, cut ties that are no longer needed and help us to emotionally engage in the present. It is also designed to put us in contact with our higher selves and allow that to guide us through our process.

This blend can be of benefit to so many people right now, that is why I am pleased to bring this product to the public. This blend should be used for a minimum of two weeks at least twice a day, preferably 3 times a day. You will be amazed by power of this formula to bring you out of the past and into the present moment. It will help you to rest your thoughts and release the ties that no longer serve you.

Flower Essence Therapy a New Healing Dynamic

By Mark D'Aquila | Comments Off on Flower Essence Therapy a New Healing Dynamic

flower essence therapyFlower essences present a completely new dynamic in the therapeutic area. Flower essence therapy offers healing and builds a bridge which spans from the heart of nature to the human heart and soul. The dynamics and dimensions flower essences cover offers a healing beyond what most of us are used to in the west.

Flower Essence Therapy

The healing potential of flower essence therapy moves beyond categories we are familiar with. It moves into the realm of soul healing and re-uniting with our divinity as the source for healing.We are conditioned to looking towards remedial treatments in terms of their effects on the physical level. But what if there was a tool that carried a vibration that influenced our emotions, mind and spirit? And this tool then brought about healing on all levels?

Flower essences are that tool and using them therapeutically is a relatively new field of research. FES, the Flower Essence Society has done amazing work in this area. Other notable researchers in this field include David Dalton of Delta Gardens, Steve Johnson of Alaskan Essences and Ian White of the Australian Bush Remedies.

The focus of flower essence therapy is to bring about true healing through the use of flower remedies. Flower essences are not a novelty and they have tremendous healing capacity when used in the proper context. Flower essence therapy is best approached as team work, with the client working with a trained practitioner. A trained practitioner has the objectivity needed to properly assess the clients situation. Then an accurate combination of remedies can be made for the client.

While flower essence therapy is a new field it is growing and you will begin to see and hear about it more and more. Flower essences are a safe way to deal with troubling emotions and emotional conditions such as depression, trauma release and anxiety.

I have studied the field of flower essence therapy for the past 15 years, my main teacher has been David Dalton. And, I am certified through the Northeast Flower Essence Co-Operative. If you are looking to work with flower essences in a therapeutic fashion, I am available for consultation over the phone or in person.
