Bleeding Heart (Dicentra formosa)
Positive Qualities: Loving others unconditionally, with an open heart; emotional freedom
Patterns of imbalance: Forming relationships based on fear or possessiveness; emotional co-dependence
"Bleeding Heart flower essence is a very powerful heart cleanser and strengthener for those who must learn the deeper spiritual lessons of love and freedom. Those needing this remedy suffer enormous pain and broken-heartedness because their feelings have been poured out so completely into another soul who is no longer present. Perhaps this happens because a loved one has died, or a cherished friend or family member has moved away. Most frequently, such anguish arises in personal relationships which have dissolved, or in relationships that are greatly afflicted. Although love for another may have many genuine aspects, very often the Bleeding Heart type has made the error of living too extensively outside the boundaries of its own Self. This intense desire for connection is often felt by the partner as emotional dependence, causing the partner to feel need for distance. Such a co-dependent relationship is devoid of real freedom and a balanced exchange of heart energies. The loss and pain which are consequently felt by those in need of Bleeding Heart are therefore necessary experiences, when viewed from a larger perspective. Through Bleeding Heart flower essence, the soul learns to fill itself from within with strong spiritual forces, so that the capacity to love another is based on the ability to honor and nourish the Self." (Flower Essence Repertory, Kaminski and Katz)
What are flower essences?
"Flower essences are subtle liquid extracts, generally taken in oral form, which are used to address profound issues of emotional well-being, soul development, and mind-body health" (Flower Essence Repertory). Our bodies are made of different energetic layers: the physical, mental, emotional, spiritual, astral, etheric... Flower essences are vibrational remedies, meaning that they affect the subtle layers of our bodies. There is a ripple effect from the higher layers down into all of the layers of the body.
Listen to your intuition when utilizing flower essences. It's not about the amount of the essence you use at once; it's about consistency of use. In general, it is recommended to add 2-4 drops in water, and drink consistently for about two weeks. Your intuition may guide you to incorporate a specific essence for a week, or perhaps longer than two weeks. Allow your inner being to guide you. I will add drops to my water and drink that water all day long, for as long as I feel I need the remedy. I like to also add them to my bath water or sprays.
