Have you ever had your purse or wallet stolen? That is an example of stressed to the core. A few years back that happened to me and I was shook to the core. As I was talking to my Mom about the things I had cancelled out and she was asking about other things that might have been in my purse, I was all of a sudden drawn to my herbal cabinet. I was so drawn that I couldn’t take my eyes off of a particular side of it. As I opened the door the lavender really stood out. All I could think of was “have a cup of lavender tea.”
At that point I had only used lavender in it’s aromatherapy form for calming frazzled nerves, relaxation, or on burns. Someone sent me the lavender buds for tea, but I hadn’t made any. For some reason I hadn’t been drawn to it. I was about to find out why . . .
As I pulled the bag out it was as if the herb was instructing me on what to do. I pulled out a strainer cup, put in a tablespoon full of the dried buds, and poured boiling water over them. I let them steep for 5-10 minutes. When I strained out the buds and took a sip, and it just took one, I gasp a WOW! My Mom ask “wow what?” I told her I just took a sip of lavender tea and I felt like my soul was just given a hug.
Awwwwww, that was the best cup of tea I’ve ever had. Each sip went deeper in clearing out the fear. All of a sudden I remembered I had a bottle of Bach’s Rescue Remedy Flower Essence in the purse. I pulled out my extra bottle and ask the bottle to connect to the bottle in my purse and assist the purse in being found. Two days later a police officer a few towns north called to say they caught someone with some of the items. He was so nice and made the entire process a breeze.
I was stressed at the time, but that stress helped me learn a lot from that situation. I hadn’t needed a cup of lavender tea before that moment, but it was there when I was in need. Lavender reminded me just how plant intelligence can connect to our Inner Knowing.
My Inner Knowing definitely knows that lavender is a soul herb!!
