Immaculate Heart // grief blend
The Immaculate heart holds deep meaning, more than what catholic symbology has draped it in.
We all have experiences sorrows, big and small. Life is made of experiences, experiences both light and dark, for we cannot have one without the other. We cannot appreciate happiness and safety without having witness it’s opposite. This life is built on duality, however this duality doesn’t have to craft the map of how we experience life. We can see the dark areas as opportunities for growth, as keys that unlock new parts to understanding of the self.
Keeping trauma suppressed doesn’t offer the deep healing that comes with acknowledgment and processing does. Of course, there seems to be some internal force that allows healing when we are ready; suppressing is sometimes the best, safest, strategy until that time is presented. This blend creates safe space to allow processing, to feel emotions and memories blocked out and move them through for healing. The synergy of this blend offers energy for holding the hard parts while acknowledging them, exploring them, and releasing what needs to be so we can find peace, so we can reconnect with parts of that have been cut off, move forward with self love- grounded, protected, with strength for being alive and to kick patriarchy to the curb.
The Fire represents the awareness we bring to our traumas and willingness to transform and transcend their impact on our lives. The blood is our letting go of that hurt on our life force. The flowers are the beauty, curiosities, softness and new growth we may always hold within us and bring to fruition once we’ve decided to recognize move past all that is holding us in stagnant places or un-serving patterns. The halo shows the new light we’ve welcomed into our souls, the warmth and understanding, the divine we’ve now allowed in the places that were once areas of darkness.
This blend is a balance of the elements with a resonance that sits with Heart-Soul energy. Linden allows us to feel and hold our sorrow, acknowledge our trauma, bring balance to this area so we may be more intimate without fear of these painful parts. Rose brings in a protected energy and softness, a gentleness to our ourselves, opening a space we can flourish, find self love and reconnect to passions. Hawthorn flowers, berries and thorns furthers the protective powers necessary to working with the darker parts while also physically and energetically strengthening the heart. Archangelic provides deep grounding and protecting while connecting us to the highest self. Wild Yam Root connects to our vital essence, nourishing the yin and grounding our beings while bringing in a steadiness, rooting into our foundation. The Cleavers help us move our waters, our emotions, so they unbind from stagnation, especially in the sacral regions where emotions go to be repressed. Ginger & Cayenne settles the gut, the center of our intuition and feels, and guides the blood, bringing fresh life into parts of our self that have been cut off and deprived of attention until the time was right. To round it out I've added Mimosa as a heart uplift offered on the journey, helping ease through the hard parts.
While the formula is potent, it is also gentle and may be used in your personal sanctuaries safely. However it’s even more powerful if used while working with a practitioner or counselor. Check-in with yourself before use. Are you ready to acknowledge and release? Are you in a place of life this could be beneficial and you’ll feel supported? Let this blend be an ally, start slow, and make space for this work.
