Clustered Broomrape (Orobranche fasciculata)
“To become whole, we must own our own shadow.”
This flower essence was made from a small cluster of orobranche growing on the sand and hiding amongst the sagebrush in the Rio Grande Gorge near Taos.
Clustered Broomrape helps us to develop relationship with the unconscious realms, with our shadow. Our shadow is a part of ourselves that if we resist will persist in ways beyond our control – it will control us. This essence helps us see the parts of ourselves that have been relegated to the shadow but are ready to be revealed and integrated.
It also helps us to know what is us and what is not us. It can be helpful for people whose energy is being used by energy vampires so they can reclaim it.
This flower essence helps us pay attention to the unseen realms both within ourselves and in the world around us.
