Flower Essence Remedies
to Help You Write Your Book Deeply
and Bring It to the World
Created by SACRED SPACE ESSENTIALS — Exclusively for the ROSE PRESS ENHANCEMENTS FOR WRITERS COLLECTION
Flowers! How beautifully they grace our lives, our fields, our gardens, our tables. We know the pleasure given us by a flower’s form and color, its raying petals, shy buds, and exuberant blooms, its scent — whether face-to-face or glimpsed in an artist’s homage of a painting. We know flowers. Or we think we do.
Ah, but are you aware that each flower has its own special quality that can provide a medicine for what ails us — whether that ailing occurs on the physical level, the emotional, mental, relational, or spiritual? And that this medicine, when gathered, distilled, and formulated as a flower essence remedy, can release a kindred quality in us — so that we may, with their help, move from fear to courage; from despair to optimism; from shyness to enthusiastic engagement; and much more?
If we find ourselves in need of courage, for example, then Borage can help to open up that capacity in us. If we need to move past the constriction of shyness, then Water Violet can give its gifts to help us do this. There are so many flower essences made possible by the abundance of nature — and by the wisdom and skill of the practitioner who carefully creates the essences for our use.
Simply taking 10 drops under the tongue, 3/x day, of the remedy that calls to us can open up that same quality from the seedbed of our infinite potential, so that we experience just what it is that we need. We take the essence of the flowers into us, and they give us back our enhanced selves. What could be better for creating an inner atmosphere conducive to wonderful, grateful writing?
CREATING A POSITIVE INNER ATMOSPHERE FOR WRITING
Writing, especially writing a book, has typically been fraught with so many fears that many people do not look forward to it, even when it’s the book of their heart. What is needed, in my view, is an inner atmosphere that opens us up effortlessly to doing the writing — an atmosphere that we can literally breathe into, that feels as natural as it is an act of grace.
Writing a book (or anything else that requires intimacy with oneself in writing) can bring forth all sorts of obstructions in us that can do their best to convince us that we cannot really move into our heart’s desire to write in a way that truly serves and pleases us. The faces of these obstructions are legion: self-doubt, self-sabotage, overwhelm, and discouragement are only a few of the “dragons” at the gates of our inner temple.
We need something to help us from succumbing to these unfriendly characteristics masquerading as “the truth,” which stop our deepest impulses to express what is in us from seeing the light of day.
Sometimes, we just need something to come help us open up the qualities we cannot reach or perhaps even yet conceive of — which, if they could only be ours, would make all the difference. To turn our procrastinated writing into “can’t-wait-to-get-to-it!” writing sessions. To turn our “Well, that was a waste of my writing time” into “Getting closer, getting closer, I can feel it, getting closer.” To turn our self-dismissive tendencies into patience, wait-and-see, “Let’s just try this out and see where it goes. . . .”
There are some things that begin from the outside that soon become part of our inside. Then, the atmosphere we have been hoping for to cradle and gestate our seed-of-a-book grows from within — holding us, nourishing us, enabling us to be true to ourselves as we write.
I have found flower essences to be one of the most potent tangible remedies for opening writers to the healing, even divine, qualities that let them write with wholehearted engagement, inner attunement, and delight.
It is my joy to share them with you now.
LET FLOWERS GROW YOUR WRITING DREAMS INTO BLOSSOM: A Series of 3 Essences Created Exclusively for This Purpose
Sacred Space Essentials is an Australian flower essence company that, synchronistically, also is about enhancement (“Enhancing the life you live”). What a blessing that this collaboration has been guided into being! Together, we bring you a tangible way to enhance and bring forth your experience of deep writing.
Sacred Space Essentials is an Australian flower essence company whose medicines I have long used and enjoyed, myself. Now, I am thrilled to announce a collaboration between Sacred Space Essentials and Writing from the Deeper Self / the Rose Press Enhancements for Writers Collection:
A series of 3 special remedies to enhance your book-writing experience — from the start of your writing all the way to bringing your completed book to the world.
Linda Bizon is the Founder of Sacred Space Essentials. She brings a vast knowledge of plants and healing to her chosen vocation, as well as a dedication to the well-being of the people who use her essences. When we had our trans-Atlantic Skype conversations to determine how to best serve you with these flower essence remedies, her dedication and care impressed me, as did her beautiful blend of intuitiveness and methodicalness. As we talked and found our common ground, it became clear that Something bigger than either of us is behind this gratifying collaboration. And you’ll be the beneficiary!
When I asked her how these remedies work, she said simply:
“Flower essences help us naturally blossom. The essence is collected from a plant when a plant is at its optimum flowering peak, in all its glory. When I make an essence, I wait until the flower says ‘Pick me, pick me!’ It’s a process of connecting with the plant, looking into the plant – and seeing, what does it look like it’s about? You allow yourself to communicate with the plant and get its message. The key thing is that flower essences don’t stimulate and they don’t suppress. They help us come into our own blossoming, whatever that is for each of us.”
So that she could determine which remedies people writing books would do best with in order to have an enhanced experience of writing, I sent her my write-up called “10 Essential Qualities That Help You Write a Book.” I based this on my observations over time of my book-development clients (as well as myself), exploring which internal qualities most support the book-writing process. (My modest write-up then grew into a full-fledged, though short, book, called 10 Essential Qualities That Help You Write Your Book: A Guide to Assessing Where You Are Within Yourself about Your Book & How You Can Move Towards Being What You Need. Inspiring in its own right; it also can be used in conjunction with the 3 flower essence remedies that Linda ultimately created for the Rose Press Enhancements for Writers Collection. To learn more about this book, scroll down.)
The collaboration deepened. Linda let this material steep, then used it as a springboard and augmented it with her own vast knowledge of flowers and their healing properties. In the end, she suggested condensing my original 10 qualities into just 3 flower essence remedies. She felt these would address all those qualities, and more, helping users of these remedies move unimpeded all the way through the book-writing process.
Grateful for her logic and love of simplicity, I agreed. “Let’s do it!” I enthused.
So now imagine simply taking 10 drops of one or more of these remedies 3x/day and finding yourself writing with confidence . . . self-trust . . . optimism . . . mental clarity . . . creativity . . . flow . . . stamina . . . the ability to see new vistas . . . resilience . . . the ability to speak your truth . . . joy . . . and much, much more!
This is what’s in store for you now with these 3 unique essences. As Linda puts it:
“These flower essence remedies don’t stimulate or suppress; they bring you into that right place of balance for the issues that flower essence relates to. They will take you where you need to go for that aspect of your soul to be whole again.”
(Note: Should you wish to take more than one remedy in the same time period, wait at least 10 minutes after taking one remedy before using the next.)
REMEDIES FOR THE INTERNAL BOOK-WRITING PROCESS
The first two remedies address the inner process of writing. (Indeed, many people who gravitate towards writing consider themselves introverts, more at home in the internal, writing phase. Getting to look inside themselves is part of the intrinsic reward of writing.)
#1, “Cultivating the Deeper Self,” gives support for overcoming internal blocks within the writer.
#2, “Writing from the Deeper Self,” supports the expression of deep writing.
These essences will open up qualities such as: * Confidence * Enthusiasm * Joy * Vitality * Releasing the weight of the past * Unpressured time * Compassion * Self-trust * Encouragement * Optimism * Courage * Equanimity * Ability to see new vistas * Creativity * Resilience * Discernment * Higher wisdom * Speaking your truth * Attention to detail * Mental clarity * Stamina and endurance * Willingness to be in the unknown.
REMEDY FOR THE EXTERNAL PROCESS OF LETTING PEOPLE KNOW ABOUT YOUR BOOK
#3, “Bring Your Deep Writing into the World” — The third remedy addresses the outer process of bringing the completed book into the world (book-promotion, marketing, and so on). Once your book is in print, this remedy enables you to share it with the public without: Shyness * Overwhelm * Time Pressure * Being affected by Criticism — and with: Enthusiasm * Confidence * Positivity and Radiance * Inspiration * Creativity * Gregariousness * Resilience * Courage * Ability to step outside your comfort zone * Joy of being recognized for your contribution. In this way, these three remedies cover all that you will need in order to begin your book, stay with it, complete it, and confidently bring it to the world.
These remedies can only be purchased from Sacred Space Essentials. When you click on the button(s) below, you’ll be taken to a special page on their site that’s devoted to these flower essence remedies for writers. The cost of each bottle is $16.50. If you buy the full set of 3, you’ll receive a special price of $45.
Note: Due to the cost of international postage when ordering from Australia, you may wish to purchase 5 or more remedies (volume: 25ml each) for the same shipping cost. This could be two sets of all 3 “Writing from the Deeper Self” remedies, or any other remedies you are drawn to on the Sacred Space Essentials site, once you’re there.
What You’ll Get with Each Unique Remedy
1. ""CULTIVATING THE DEEPER SELF”
The first in the series of internal flower essence remedies, “Cultivating the Deeper Self” is for when your challenge in writing your book lies inside you.
You are the treasury from which your book will grow. Yet if you feel assailed by negative inner commentary and conditioning that cause you to believe in your limitations rather than in your actual gifts, skills, and potentials, you may experience an internal tug-of-war, an inner landscape of drought, a straitjacket of confinement that can keep your writing from ever making it onto the page. This is what it is to be “nipped in the bud” — a disheartening, even tragic loss of the beautiful, healing, unique contributions through your creative expression that only you can make.
Fortunately, all the qualities you might need in order to overcome this painful, frustrating situation are already available to you in seed form, in potential. The “Cultivating the Deeper Self” flower essence remedy can help them flower in you now. Here’s the kind of thing you can anticipate after taking this remedy:
Moving out of self-doubt into confidence
Letting go of the past (things placed on you that have stopped you from moving forward)
Releasing time pressure; letting the writing process happen in its own good time
Emerging out of shyness into a feeling of full belonging
Standing up for what you believe
Inspiration and vitality
Compassion and self-compassion
Ability to see things in a new way
Ability to rise up through situations that previously kept you down
Discernment; sorting out the wheat from the chaff
And more. . . .
“Cultivating the Deeper Self” provides you with a way to befriend yourself profoundly. From this inner place, writing your book will be an organic outgrowth of the treasury within you. Give yourself this gift now.
2. "WRITING FROM THE DEEPER SELF”
The second in the series of internal flower essence remedies, “Writing from the Deeper Self” is for when your challenge in writing your book has to do with the actual writing.
Well, it is possible to think well of yourself (see remedy #1, above) and still struggle with the writing of your book. Because although your inner landscape provides the territory to be mined in your writing, there still may be obstacles in your way to do with the writing itself. You may not know what direction to take your book it; or have a direct connection to what’s alive in the subject for you. You may not trust that what comes to you can pan out, and automatically try to replace your heart-wisdom with clever mind-stuff. All sorts of things can interpose themselves between you and your deeper Self. Just feeling this discrepancy can be disheartening.
Fortunately, the “Writing from the Deeper Self” flower essence remedy has been expressly designed to help you bring the contact with your deeper Self into your writing. Here’s what you can anticipate after taking this remedy:
Pathways in your brain opening up that bring about this deeper understanding
Tapping into higher wisdom
Mental clarity and alertness
The ability to bring your inspirations down to a physical level (embodied in your book)
Grit, stamina, being able to push through anything that gets in your way as you write
Courage (including for going into the unknown)
Centered, consistent energy (an antidote to overwhelm)
Inspiration and vitality
Releasing time pressure; letting the writing happen in its own good time
Letting go of self-sabotage
Trust — in yourself, in the process, in life
Passion, enthusiasm for your project
Artistry — including shaping your writing
Vibrancy, life, joy
“Writing from the Deeper Self” lets you bring a wealth of positive qualities to the writing of your book, and — in return — to be inspired by what you have brought forth. Why suffer needlessly? Give yourself this gift now.
3. "BRING YOUR DEEP BOOK TO THE WORLD”
ALL 3 REMEDIES
10 ESSENTIAL QUALITIES THAT HELP YOU WRITE YOUR BOOK
This third flower essence remedy, “Bring Your Deep Book to the World,” is for when your challenge with your book is about letting the world know about it — letting its light (and your own) come into the world. Writing the book is “just” the first part. Once it’s in print, the next part is getting the book out to your readers.
Marketing, promotion, speaking, doing readings, workshops, teaching, and so on — these more external, extroverted activities can be daunting to some writers, whose natural milieu is more often that quiet, contemplative, internal place behind the scenes. Yet when you give yourself to your writing, the completed work is your “baby.” You don’t want to abandon it; you want to bring it into the world well.
A unique and much-needed support for writers who prefer the internal work of writing to the much more external work of letting that writing be known, “Bring Your Deep Book to the World” enables you to keep your commitment to the book you have so fully given yourself to — and stand behind what you have written with confidence, authority, and even joy. Here’s what you can anticipate after taking this remedy:
Letting go of shyness (for people who aren’t used to promoting themselves or being in the public arena)
Being willing to speak your truth (“This is what I’ve written; this is me”)
Letting go of self-sabotage (you don’t want to give so much of yourself to the writing and then subvert its success)
Letting go of overwhelm (especially with the demands of publicizing, and keeping your energy consistent)
Courage and resilience
Willingness to step outside your comfort zone
Taking the time you need without feeling pressured
Opening to new, creative ways to publish and publicize your book
Being able to talk to people without getting overloaded
Inspiration, enthusiasm (especially when you’re not used to being in public, promoting)
A positive outlook; radiance
The joy of receiving the recognition you deserve
“Bring Your Book to the World” flower essence remedy helps you to willingly promote your book and not only be equal to the task but also experience wonderful things in the process — to hold it as a gift to the world, and to stand firmly, gladly, enthusiastically behind your creation, anticipating a welcome reception. Give yourself (and your grateful readers) this gift!
You may want all 3 essences at your disposal
— to help you with the inner healing, the process of writing, and getting your book out into the world.
What a good way to care for yourself! Because how will you know how the essences will support you unless you have the direct experience for yourself?
You might buy the first two at the same time to experience the internal effects. (But it’s more thrifty to buy all three; and besides, you get a better deal re: shipping from Australia when you buy 5 bottles or more.)
So here’s my suggestion:
Buy all 3 of these custom-designed flower essence remedies at the special price of just $45 plus shipping.
You will receive “Cultivating the Deeper Self,” for overcoming your internal blockages to writing; “Writing from the Deeper Self,” for overcoming barriers to the writing itself; and “Bring Your Deep Writing to the World,” so you can market and promote this “baby” you have birthed in a way that it deserves and you can actually enjoy.
That way, you’ll have everything you need within reach. And your own experience will testify to the wise and self-nourishing choice you have made.
And then there’s the book that inspired the remedies . . . .
