Habitat: Calendula, also known as Pot Marigold, grows in warm
temperate climates of Europe, India, and the United States . The
name Calendula, in Latin, means “little calendar.” They are considered
sacred owers in India and were used by ancient Greeks and Romans
ceremonially. Calendula is easy to grow and commonly used as a
medicinal herb, a dye, and is edible in salads and soups.
Calms the mind and opens inner vision. Releases fear, doubt, and the
need for control. Strengthens resolve in the path you are aching to see
happen and supports inner truth. Know that creative abilities are gifts
of inspiration. See that you have help and spiritual feedback that co-
creates with you. The leaves help you focus on the current path in life,
making it more de ned and strengthening motivation to do it, follow
it, embrace it, know it, live it, be it.
Everything will happen naturally–implicate unfolding. The nature
of things set in motion eons past. Strength in knowing that life will
unfold by design. Nothing to do or not do. Be present to enjoy. Soak
into yourself and consciously experience each moment. Calendula can
show you the way to a calm center and abundance. It is your birthright
to know who you are, your path, and your inner guidance that can
never be taken from you.
- Seeking truth outside of yourself. Needing others’ approval. Using your mind and ego to control the creative process.
- Trying to mentally manifest things.
“Be self-assured. Trust yourself.”
