Individual within community.
Lupine is an ally that helps us to heal our communities, reminding us that community care is just as important as self-care, while also helping us maintain our individuality and boundaries within a community.
Community is an extension of self. As we create more peace and harmony in our life, so to will this energy ripple out, creating more peace and harmony in our community. As we raise our vibration, we are able to influence and raise the vibration in our community. We get to choose what we value in our lives. If we value empathy, compassion, integrity, harmony, love, and other high vibration ways of being in the world, our community will reflect that.
Lupine brings much needed healing to devastated communities, to the land, and to people who are devastated as well. Individually we may be feeling low, depressed, defeated, oppressed, full of sorrow, and carrying heavy burdens. This can happen living during turbulent times in an oppressive system when it seems that so much is stacked against us. Not only can our inner world ripple out into our community, but the state of our community around us can also impact and influence us as individuals. Lupine helps us to become more aware of what we are experiencing as an individual; how we impact our community and our community impacts us. It also helps to heal division and rifts within our community.
The healing energies of Lupine bring in regeneration, fertility, deep nourishment, and abundance. It helps us to remember that healing is possible, that there is enough for everyone, and that we can continue to grow. Lupine builds a rich, fertile ground, which becomes our foundation supporting us in sewing the seeds of change and nourishing those seeds as they grow. We are able to focus on regeneration and new growth after coming through difficult times and letting go of what no longer serves our community and us as individuals.
Lupine gives us the ability to see beyond our own self-concern and our own interests, seeing past our own suffering, perspective, and our opinions. Helping us to have compassion for other people’s situations and experiences even if our beliefs, viewpoint, and opinions are different from theirs.
We are reminded to follow the light, to reach, move, and bend towards the light. The light is our compass as we strive to heal our selves and our communities. The light also powerfully illuminates and reveals the darkness in our communities so we can clearly see it, name it, and heal it together.
As we work to heal our communities, we are also reminded to be flexible, giving up rigid thinking and outdated ways of being that have not served us in the past. Now is the time for creative thinking and solutions. To come together and work together in a time of crisis, setting our differences aside in order to work on behalf of everyone’s interests and concerns. Now is the time to work in harmonious ways, coming to a consensus, being sure that everyone’s voice is heard.
Lupine can help us combat greed and selfishness in the community, inspiring community service and generosity instead. Knowing that we are all in this together; looking after each other, lifting one another up rather than cutting each other down, and not allowing people to be left behind or fall through the cracks. Lupine helps us to connect with one another in a harmonious way, reminding us to value connection over competition, being allies for one another.
- Community looks around and asks who needs help? Who is missing?
- Who’s voice, input, and ideas are missing?
- How can we make this work for everyone in our community?
- How can we ensure everyone feels heard and included?
- How can we create an environment where everyone’s voice is heard, including our most vulnerable?
- How can we include everyone in the process of decision making?
Lupine helps us broaden our awareness of our larger community so that we may move beyond self-care to community care. We can be inspired to acts of community service and acts of generosity while doing so in a balanced way so that we do not become burned out. Each of us are unique individuals with unique gifts, talents, and abilities that our community needs.
- How can we use these gifts to contribute to our community?
- How can I as an individual contribute to my community?
- What gifts and knowledge can I offer?
- How can I be of service?
- How can I balance being of service to my community in a way that I do not get burned out?
If we come together in community, each of us doing our part and looking out for one another, no one person has to bare the sole responsibility for any one thing. As the old saying goes, “Many hands make light work.” Part of community care is showing up and being responsible, following up and following through. Asking for help and giving help. We learn to value one another and the strengths we each bring with us, valuing our differences, knowing that we each have an important thread to contribute that weaves a rich tapestry of diversity, creating unity within our communities.

Lupine Flower Essence
Vibrational essences are the subtle energetic qualities of flowers, trees, or gems imprinted into water by the light of the sun or moon. They do not contain any plant matter and do not have a scent, other than the brandy used to preserve the essence. The vibrational essences I create are handcrafted in small batches, not tested on animals, they are vegan, and gluten free.
Essences can be used as a single essence or a blended essence. A blended essence means that there is more than one essence being used to achieve the desired result.
The beauty of vibrational essences is that you do not have to ingest them to access their energetic qualities.
Essences can be used in a variety of ways including:
- Sprayed on or around your body as an aura mist
- Added to a glass or bottle of water and sipped through the day
- Placed under your tongue.
- Put on your skin or on pulse points.
- Diffused in a misting diffuser.
- Put into bathwater.
Directions For Use
Aura Mist: These are lightly scented with essential oils and intended to be sprayed on and around your body into your aura and are not to be ingested. Shake well before use. Aura mist can also be used to shift the energy of your home or workplace. For best results, use four times a day, for one month.
Keep out of reach of children. Do not ingest. Do not use if nursing or pregnant. Do not spray into eyes. Do not use near flame. Do not use on pets. Use only as intended.
Dropper Bottle: Dropper bottles are sold as a stock essence. What is a stock essence? When we make vibrational essences, the first thing we make is what is called a mother essence. From a mother essence, we fill a one ounce bottle with half water and half brandy, adding in several drops of the mother essence. A stock bottle can either be used as is or it can be made into a dosage bottle. To do so, take a once ounce bottle and fill it with half water and half brandy, adding several drops (I usually use four drops) of essence to that. Then using the dosage bottle as described above. This means that you can make your one ounce stock bottle go farther if you make a dosage bottle with it. The best thing to do is to experiment and see what works best for you.
Dropper Bottle Directions: Four drops, four times per day under tongue or in water. Use for one month for best results. Essences are also easily absorbed through the skin. Place a few drops into bathwater or anoint yourself by placing directly on skin at wrists, third eye, back of neck, or wherever you feel guided. Essences can also be used to anoint and bless objects.
Before use, take a deep heart-centered breath and set your intention.
To track your progress you may want to keep a journal to record any shifts in emotions, thoughts, energy, etc., as well as any new insights or intuitive information, gained.
Vibrational essences hold the pattern of the energy we are reaching for or trying to shift to. You may notice relief, a sense of ease and flow, a shift or an easing of emotion. Sometimes vibrational essences can bring up the patterns we are trying to let go of so that we can look at them and heal them. At the same time, the vibrational essence is also supporting you so that you can look at whatever is coming up with courage. Perhaps you will see it in a new light or from a new perspective.
I recommend using one essence or blended essence at a time. This way you know which essence is doing what.
