Your astrological natal chart is a snapshot of the heavens at the exact time of your birth and is considered by astrologers to be the map of your destiny. The birth chart is your unique astrological mandala, which reveals your gifts, challenges and opportunities for growth serving as a navigational guide for your journey on earth. Astrology is a tool that provides a holistic view of one’s self, it can help to illuminate the meaning and purpose of our life, as well as how to navigate our way to our highest potential.

Flower Essences are not like other medicines. They do not contain active chemicals or possess pharmaceutical properties. They are best described as a sort of liquid energy, a vibrational medicine that brings about benefits by influencing each person’s own life-force.

Flower Essences do not work like drugs in which molecular patterns often bind to specialised receptors throughout the cells of the body. Instead they work by influencing the subtle energy structures that feed life energy into the body/mind. Flower essences modify energy flow through the acupuncture meridians, the chakras and the subtle bodies with the end result of affecting the very energetic patterns that influence consciousness.
