My childhood house was on top of a hill surrounded by sugar cane fields, seemingly reaching the ocean far off in the distance in the west. The night sky was dark with bright stars whose constellations my mother called out for me. Beyond the rainbow of hibiscus bushes hedging our property, I could see all the way to Basse-Terre, the other wing of this butterfly island, with its towering mountain chain covered in a dense lush tropical forest. Right next to our home, under a magnificent flamboyant tree, I had a “secret garden”. It was tiny and nestled in between the huge protruding roots of the tall tree that shaded us from the intense Caribbean sun. There I grew lemon grass, mint and succulents. I made tea from the herbs and I had a particular fondness for aloe vera, the all-healing plant. I already knew that the power to heal lays in ones' connection with the Earth, Heart-to-Heart.
In the late 90’s, when I lived in Miami Beach, FL, a friend introduced me to flower essences.Upon traveling to Australia in 1999 to meet Thalia and Kenzo, my newborn niece and nephew, I discovered the Australian Bush Flower Essences. This was a major turning point in my life. The spirit of this plant medicine spoke to me: I had found a natural tool that directly offers access to the healing vibration of the earth's Heart! This powerful earth remedy bridged my heart to the heart of the Aboriginese people and, by osmosis, I soaked in their 5,000 years of wisdom using the native plants to balance emotions. I knew without a doubt that I had been one of them before and that I was now home, remembering my plant allies, with great joy.
After the birth of my son in Brooklyn, NY, I moved to Berkeley, CA in 2003, and became an Advanced Certified Bush Flower Essences Practitioner. The knowledge came (back) to me very naturally, I was at ease speaking the language of the flowers and easily intuitively traced people's emotional unbalances in need of integration to their root source. I launched my practice by becoming my first patient, passionately working at healing lifetimes of issues of my body, mind and soul. I have since worked with countless people and witnessed healing take place in most magical ways, when the layers of illusions are burned through, and one’s radiance is revealed.
The Australian Bush Flower Essences are the most radical vibrational catalyst for transformation I have experienced. I use them daily and share them widely. They can address the deeply personal needs of every individual, wether their issues are physical, mental, emotional, relational or spiritual. This plant medicine facilitates a shift in consciousness, often rapid and profound, opening a path for a miracle to take place, in alignment with the Highest Good for All.
I am showcasing my favorite remedies on my website, beginning with the Creative Essence.
