A Challenge to Vibration’s Readers

7675541.thbWe invite our readers to participate in a collaborative project where many of us make and test the same flower essence – Gladiolus in this case, pictured here – and share our impressions of the essence-making process, and use of your essence.

Gretchen Lawlor’s June, 1999 article in Vibration Magazine offered a simple, clear method for making flower essences, so we hope many of you will embark on the adventure of  making a Gladiolus essence this summer. In an earlier edition, I gave some perspective on how essence makers come up with meanings and uses for their remedies. (See “Discovering What an Essence Does“.)

One request: the color of your Glad may make a difference, so do let us know what color flower you used. For an interesting experiment, someone might want to make an essence from of several colors of glads together, or several different essences from flowers of different colors, noting the separate notes (if any) that the color of the flower contributes.

We do not recommend that you research other essence company’s offerings of Gladiolus essences before you make and test your essence because it will bias your results.  Remember, there aren’t any “right” and “wrong” answers here — your experience and understanding is valid in its own right.

Next month, we’ll publish the impressions I had of making such an essence.  If we receive others’ notes, we will write about those, too.

I would love to have this be an ongoing project. I haven’t made gladiolus essence, but would be interested in collaborating (sharing attunements) on other essence flowers in the future.
