Chinese Lantern Flower Essence hails from the Hibiscus family of flowers, but unlike most Hibiscus, hangs downward as if drawn toward the earth by gravity. Like the Hibiscus family of Flower Essences it works primarily on your root and sacral chakras, helping you release old patterns of trauma so you can learn to relax, and be at ease.
Its Essence teaches acceptance- the first law of Spirit- as well as surrender, and in so doing, to let go of the guilt and shame associated with the “what ifs”, “if onlys”, and “could have” beens.
It’s Essence also teaches you let go of self-doubt, judgments, and limiting, critical beliefs – beliefs that would undermine your progress and/or derail you from your higher purpose .
If you tend to live in a state of resistance, or always seem to be “fighting gravity”, swimming upstream (or against the current) or otherwise be in a struggle, Chinese Lantern Essence can help you learn to go with flow and just be. As such, it can help ease fears and anxieties (stored in the first two chakras) associated with either what’s gone wrong in the past and what could happen in the future, and may help you find it easier to sleep at night.
