One of the most basic needs of all humans is to feel loved. During this uncertain time and especially with physical distancing, it can be hard to feel loved. Luckily the plant community is here to help. Below is a list of plant essences focusing on feeling loved. Each one addresses a specific pattern of thinking or emotion that blocks you from feeling loved.
If you are having a hard time right now, I encourage you to ask the plants for help. Plants offer unconditional support to help you identify unhealthy thought or emotional patterns. Gently and powerfully, plant essences help connect you to the unhealthy pattern. Plant essences provide a new template or blueprint to change what isn’t working anymore to heal and grow. Many of these patterns reside in your subconscious and can be hard to identify. Plant essences bring these automatic or subconscious patterns into your awareness. Now you have a choice in how you respond instead of reacting.
If you are unsure about what plant essence to use, schedule a phone or video appointment with me to identify plant essences specific for your current situation. You can also purchase my Oracle deck and intuitively pick plant essence cards to identify the plant essence you would want to take. If you can’t decide on one plant essence, purchase Feeling Loved Plant Essence Blend a combination of all the plants listed below.
Take a moment to tune in to how you are feeling. What thoughts are you hearing most often about being loved or loving yourself? What emotions are you feeling when you think about being loved or loving yourself?
If you are having trouble connecting to your thoughts and feelings, take twenty minutes to journal about the topic of love. If it helps, set a timer and sit with a paper and pen. It does not matter how much you write down, the writing can connect you to what you are thinking and feeling.
All of the plants listed below can be found in my book Honoring the Wisdom In Nature: Messages from the Plant Kingdom 54 Plant Essences to Develop Intuition
