Prickly Poppy flower essence (Argemone pleiacantha)
“Let it flow from deep within.”
This flower essence was made in the llano estacado desert plains of southeastern New Mexico. The beautiful white poppy-like flower pops up surprisingly along sandy, stony pathways here in New Mexico.
Prickly Poppy helps us to allow the unconscious realms to flow through us. We are often trying too hard to control the narrative, control our lives. This essence helps us to let go and lighten up. It encourages us to slow down and find that place of inner calm and peacefulness. When we do this, we are more receptive to what lies behind the material realms. We become more responsive to our intuition, instinctual urges and our dreams.
This flower essence is good for people who are hard on themselves and overly driven to get things done, to achieve. To those of us who find it difficult to release the need to be constantly doing something. Making oneself constantly busy is often a technique to keep oneself away from a deeper, more feeling part of oneself. Maybe there is fear of what may come up. Remember, ‘to feel is to heal’.
