Habitat: Prairie Coneflower, also known as Mexican Hat, Upright Prairie Coneflower, Yellow Coneflower, Long Headed Coneflower, or Columnar Prairie Coneflower, prefers to grow in the dry, arid open spaces of prairie grassland and mountain foothills from central Canada to Northern Mexico and west from Minnesota to Southeastern Idaho. It is nutritious to livestock and birds.
Give yourself a big hug. Feel the love, the strength, and the support you have within yourself. Prioritize
your own needs before others and see what problems clear up in your life. Ask yourself what you really
want to do and then go do it. No need for reason or rationale. Put yourself first. Feel the strength and
support of self-love and see how it feels in your body. Love people unconditionally because you love
Time cannot hold the vastness of love eternal. Though time moves ahead love remains the same, never
ending and unchanged. Speak to me of longing, pain, and unmet expectations. I heal all wounds with
love. I am the one that will take time to listen no matter how many times the same things come up. I
will not fail you in my presence and love. I give you hope that this love is present in human interactions:
unconditional support, kindness, and unwavering solace.
- Placing others’ needs before your own.
- Codependency: Gaining self-worth from helping others when it is detrimental to yourself. Poor boundaries especially around the solar plexus.
“Let the power of love heal you.”
