|Alpine LilyPositive qualities:
For women, acceptance of one's femininity grounded in a deepened experience of the female body.
Patterns of imbalance: Overly abstract sense of femininity; disembodied, alienation from or rejection of
female organs as "lower".
Alpine Lily flower essence helps the feminine soul experience a more vibrant relationship to the female
body. While this remedy can sometimes be indicated for men who are addressing inner feminine aspects of themselves,
it is primarily beneficial for women who harbor a psychological split in their relationship to the feminine principle.
These women tend to favor that which is more cosmic and virginal, and find it difficult to identify with the
earthly aspect of the feminine. They have many spiritual attributes and actively use higher feminine forces,
but do not integrate this consciousness with the physical body. Negative impressions of the female body are
often unconsciously absorbed from the mother or from the larger culture. Because the soul does not fully identify
with or inhabit the female body, physical stress and disharmony can result in the reproductive organs, in the
sexual function, or in the biological experience of pregnancy and nursing.
Alpine Lily flower essence stimulates
the integration of the feminine and female selves, promoting circulation between the higher and lower energy
centers. The soul learns that its full energy and potential depends of the utilization of the bodily female
as well as the spiritual feminine from this flower essence.
