Andean Fire - Phragmipedium Andean Fire

One name for this essence could have been "Resurrecting Courage and Purpose", even when overwhelmed by the suffering all around, even in the face of absolute physical challenge. Would help those who have been victims of torture or major disasters in this or a past life. This is a major essence to address the horrors of human suffering and a way to experience what is meant by The Compassion of Christ.

Base Regulator - Bulbophyllum gracillimum

Base Regulator is a very powerful essence with several layers of activity. There is a profound effect on the pelvic centres as well as on the crown chakra. It establishes a countercurrent in the pelvis, reining in excess sexual energies. Base Regulator also has a powerful effect on the liver in reducing heat in the organ.

Behold the Silence - Comparetia macroplectron (Columbia)

This essence provides a pathway to enter into the profound silence of universal being and invites us into a new relationship with the future. As the future becomes more and more present in the depth of our inner silence, the past goes back into itself so that we no longer hold the past in the present. In this way our former actions or karmas disolve. What remains is unobstructed action. Place 4 drops in a small amount of water, and hold in the mouth for 15 seconds to enable the energy to be absorbed through the roof of the mouth and enter the crown chakra. Good for meditation, vision quests, as a preparation for various rituals, and for becoming aware of the sacredness of Nature.

Being in Time - Phragmipedium Ainsworthii

Get the body into 3-D time. Very important to enable therapists to bring the client into contact with and stay in the lower half of the body. Helps those who are reluctant to incarnate fully into "the here and now". It does so by harmonising the body's etheric cycles with those same cycles in Nature. This is a calibration to a flow which helps one to manage one's time better, especially when there is the sense of having too much to do and too little time to do it in. GREAT FOR JET LAG. The body can immediately harmonise and integrate with the time-zone of the local area no matter what the distance nor direction of travel.

Being in Grace - Ascocenda Princess Mikasa

A large and vibrantly purple vandaceous orchid, the colour of the blooms is central to the action of this essence. This essence is in part a cleansing of one's old emotional pain that can appear as physical distress or energetic blocks. Its healing process goes keeply into the emotional centre of the brain; it also releases tension from the kidney meridian.

Blue Angel Vanda Gomalco's Blue Magic

This beautiful essence helps us reconnect with the soul’s blueprint, and the origins of our soul. Blue Angel is a very reflective essence: it is akin to looking up from the bottom of a clear blue lake and seeing the light percolating into the depths of the water, as we look up to our origin.

Blue Angel clears unwanted negative imprints in the lower chakras, enabling channels to open in the psyche, drawing our attention to aspects of the soul that we have forgotten. This process can stir into consciousness elements of the subconscious mind. Occasionally the essence can give rise to an intense anger at being reminded of our soul’s obligations on the journey, which we may have conveniently forgotten or resisted. This anger is a necessary response and is best not interfered with. It will usually pass within a few days, bringing in its place a profound longing to draw closer to our origins, and to fulfil our soul’s purpose in this incarnation.

See also Coming Home which is about accepting the certainty of our existence; Redemption Dream which is about the nature of our contract; Shiva’s Crown which helps us to understand the journey of the soul in this body; and Revelation which helps us to see the full picture of the changes and steps we need to make in our journey forward. Blue Angel takes this theme further by awakening profound aspects of the soul which have been forgotten.

Imagine a translucent jellyfish pulsing or champagne bubbles streaming to the surface. Experience a sense of buoyancy, floating freedom and ease. Great for relieving tension in the frontal lobes of the brain due to too much mental work. Opens up our consciousness to active and productive dreaming. Space takes on a gentle shape with delicate edges. Great for men who need to balance their overly-masculine temperament.

Rhythmic and passionately sensual. Very large blooms. The name of this essence should be spoken with a Brazillian accent. Very good for those who are overly intellectual and live at some distance from their body. So instead, distance from the stress of a busy day when you arrive home and remember to enjoy a little, more and more.

Celebration - Paph. sanderianum

After we have healed the primary traumas which the psyche is inclined to hold, once we have addressed the dead-pelvis syndrome, and the ancient and recent heartaches; once the powerful traumas of the past have been healed, what then? In effect all essences that address remedial conditions ('negative' states) are concerned with our Becoming healthier, more whole. But once those conditions are healed, then we move beyond the need for an essence of Becoming, and into the qualities of Being. Celebration appears to have almost no concern with remedial conditions, but instead invites you to experience deep and powerful Being. Celebration will be of 'benefit' primarily with people who have engaged in the healing of their various traumas already, in one way or another. For the orchids it represents a culmination of 14 years of essence-making (as well as 14 years of orchid-growing!). It is a powerful and beautiful essence, inviting us to experience the depths of our spirit.

Celestial Siren - Dendrobium lawesii

The growth habit of this orchid species from SE Asia is remarkable: the long thin pseudobulb hangs down from a branch, held by its roots, and the blooms grow facing down to the earth. Yet the thin tube with nectar at its tip (the "nectary") grows back up towards the sky. And so when we take this essence, there is almost always a pronounced postural change noted: the head tilts forward, and yet there comes a sense of energy moving back up through the head, arcing from the face through the brain and back up out the rear top of the head. This is then followed by a deep, lasting stillness of being. Negative flames of thought are snuffed out like little candles with a snuffer. There is a sense of the Higher Self calling one's soul to remember its deepest and highest potential, to reach towards the inner beauty of enlightenment, yet remaining calm, rooted and centered.

Celestial Triangle - Scaphosepalum bicristatum

Geometry has perhaps never been as delightful as with this essence. Triangles are formed by the blooms on each of the multiple spikes of the plant, and energetically a series of triangles are acted upon in the energy body from the pelvis up through the head and above. Calm serenity and gentle clearing are accompanied by lightness of heart with this orchid, and as the action moves to the head and above, another geometrical form develops, that of a torus. This is the fundamental shape of the healthy human aura, and also of each of the chakras as well. (The torus is the mathematical name for the donut-shape.) Celestial Triangle helps develop the torus of the aura as it moves above the head, but only after it has first lightened the heart. One of our early "provers" saw Kuan Yin appear to her when she meditated on this essence, who told her this essence was about bringing in "new consciousness". The prover asked Kuan Yin how she should deal with people stuck in the older consciousness, she was simply told, "Send Love. The new consciousness and mind create a new air, which goes into people. Spread Love."

Celestial Triangle is the 2nd of an essence trilogy, which begins with Crown of Serenity. True Connections is the 3rd essence in the trilogy. There is significant benefit to be found in experiencing each of the three in turn, as follows: take Crown of Serenity on one day, then Celestial Triangle the next day, followed by True Connections the day after that. On each day take the essence drops from the stock bottle once, either before bedtime or before meditation. Repeat this sequence for a total of 21 days.

Core of Being - Nanodes medusae (Ecuador)

A very important essence to realign to our spiritual axis. This essence enters into one's causal body, which is the "Spiritual White Light". It appears as the central axis, a small-diameter shaft of light running parallel to and just in front of the spine. It is the origin of the chakra system. In a gentle yet profound movement, the essence helps us to aling to the higher chakras that compose and create the causal body Light shaft and surrounding causal and celestial auric fields. In doing so, the etheric, astral and mental bodies harmonise very well.

Core Release - Bulbophyllum gracillimum

This orchid is one of the few in our range which gave rise to two essences, related yet quite distinct in their actions. Base Regulator was made when the sexual parts of the blooms (the white & yellow elements seen in the photos) were still concealed within the dark red forms of the petals. Core Release was made some 18 hours later in the bloom cycle.

The energetic differences are substantial. As with Base Regulator, Core Release has a major impact on the pulsation points of the pelvic region, but without the damping impact on the libido. Core Release enhances the sexual centre's sensitivity, and at the same time brings an element of protection to the entire pelvic area. This is a highly unusual feature of this essence, which we have not encountered with any other essence. Core Release also brings an impetus to get on with things one needs to do, through its action on both the 3rd chakra and the Ajana centre. Moreover one's intuitive abilities are hightened. As it is a very new essence, our understanding of it will be developing further in the months ahead.

Crown of Serenity - Bulbophyllum eberhardtii

Calming, and clarifying of one's Intention. This essence invites one in to a high inner alignment of one's energies. Eases tensions held in the 8th chakra, freeing mental energies for more focused attention. This essence will be of greatest benefit to those who have already worked with a number of the other orchid essences in the range, as it builds energetically upon the foundations they have helped to create.

A significant impact is felt initially in sleep after taking this essence, with tensions eased by the deeper dream-state and the dreamless sleep which Crown of Serenity helps bring about. On a practical level this essence will be a useful aid to studying. At its more profound level it is assisting us with our spiritual evolution, shifting the energetic forms of the subtle body to enable higher energies to be incarnate.

Defender from the Dark - Pleurothallis phalangifera

In response to a perceived global energetic challenge, this orchid called out to be made into an essence in early October 2010. The second part of the botanical name Pleurothallis phalangifera translates as "phalanx-bearing" meaning the orchid spike looks like it is carrying a small phalanx of soldiers. A dream-time image which came to Don repeatedly one night about this essence was of hundreds of elves with their bows on their shoulders, marshalling their forces, preparing for battle. And indeed the orchid looks reminiscent of that Tolkien-like image. There is a sense with this orchid that, while it knows the dark, it is not of the dark. Embodying deep goodness of being, it is nevertheless not naive about the threat posed at times by dark forces. There is an old adage in American football, that the "best defense is a good offense"; this essence provides both clearing of and protection from high levels of dark energies through its determined opposition to their intentions.

An exceptional aspect of this essence is the fact that immediately upon making, it made clear to us that it wanted to be combined with several other essences. Rather than the one-size-fits-all approach, this essence wanted a mini-series of Defender combinations to come into being, to enable people to fine-tune the best type of protection they or a client might need. For fuller information, please see our Combinations page, or our new Defender Series page.

Emerald

To date this is the only gemstone essence we have made on its own. Two of the earliest, and two of the most recent orchid essences have been made with gemstones accompanying the orchid. But this emerald had such clear and wonderful energy we decided to make an essence with it by itself.

Awakening, brightening, and clarifying of the mind. Opens one to higher energies, clearing the brow and crown chakras in so doing. Stimulates the mind and memory, and develops discernment and reflection. Awakens yet also calms the heart chakra. Harmony and mental focus are fostered by this essence.

Eye of the Tiger - Scaphosepalum anchoriferum

Strongly energising and yang, this essence is likely to be experienced in one of two ways. It will either bring strength and almost fierce focus to the solar plexus and heart chakras, as well as the ajana centre; or will be experienced as bringing joy and optimism. In either case it brings a strength of heart and a renewal of purpose to one’s day.

Eye of the Tiger motivates one to confront hidden issues of the central body chakras, as well as confronting the same challenges externally. Its action then moves into the higher chakra domain.

Fire of Life - Masdevallia ignea (Peru, Ecuador)

The Fire of Life is the masculine complement to Furnace of of Life. Its yang energy helps the highest of universal energies to incarnate into consciousness, and sets this energy flowing into the centre of one's being.

Fire of Life gives courage and purpose to the journey of the soul. It is the Yang energy to the yin energy of Furnace of Life. In observing the bloom of this orchid, it is remarkable how attractive it is to those who feel oppressed, suppressed or unable to express themselves.

Fire of Life will breathe new life into the (dwindling) flames of the Ming Men point, thereby strengthening the will of the individual to make choices more in line with highest universal intentions, providing a revitalised opportunity to fulfil ones deepest spiritual destiny.

Furnace of Life - Masdevallia veitchiana (Peru/Ecuador)

In Chinese Medicine there is a point situated between the Kidneys called Ming Men (translated as 'The Gate of Destiny'). This key point is the major 'gateway' for the infusion of all physiological dualities in a way that supports life and fuels the process of evolution.

If we fail to accept life as an opportunity to cultivate virtue, or attribute disempowering meanings to challenging or painful circumstances, then the fires of Ming Men will be severely diminished and life will be governed not by highest universal intentions, but by self generated belief systems.

This smothering of the Ming Men point leads to further polarised dualities within one's subtle energy system, which in turn will create further painful challenges within the body and psyche. Furnace of Life helps to clear the mist from the lens of perception of the observer, enabling the truth of any given situation to reveal itself effortlessly.

Furnace of Life is the female principle, the intention of which is to incarnate our own divine light into consciousness, and to enable us to feel our cosmic purpose. For those whose feminine aspect has been threatened or suppressed, it is best to take Necklace of Beauty first for a few days. Then Furnace of Life will far more readily be able to enter one's chakra system.

Fruits of Love - Dendrobium alexandrae

This orchid has an unusual characteristic when the bud is developing. The buds seem to become fully grown, but then remain closed for several weeks, before finally opening. There is an air of expectancy, akin to that of a pregnant woman. The blooms open facing the earth, offering a gentle and exquisite fragrance. Dendrobium alexandrae grows in the highest branches in lowland forest in Papua New Guinea, often exposed to much more sunlight than most orchids would tolerate.

The essence has a strong impact on the root and sacral (2nd) chakras, as well as the heart chakra; there is also a reach into the Crown chakra and above. It is an essence of conception, and of nurturing the state of pregnancy, as well as overlighting the birth process. It acts in complimentary ways to the action of Purity of Soul in helping to clear further energetic pathways in the 2nd chakra relating to birth. It is also about bringing in our highest light, found in the top branches of our soul, so that we may fully incarnate our highest potential.

This essence opens the throat chakra and connects to a source of inner wisdom which appears as golden light within the inner chamber of the heart chakra. When the inner chamber opens, its "light" can ascend into the throat chakra. Fundamentally not a remedy, but rather an essence for developing a spiritual perspective of everyday life. Probably our most universal essence.

The 15th chakra opens as well to the residence of "Universal Order", the home of sacred geometry.

It then goes down the neck (bypassing the throat chakra) extending into the chest cavity and the heart chakra, clearing both somewhat like the action of a bottle brush. The heart chakra opens with a sense of renewal. This can also bring a sense of heart-felt longing, as the essence then moves further down, to the 1st and 2nd chakras. The libido is stirred awake, connecting inextricably with the heart's longing.

How do we fool ourselves by projecting what we desire and not truly need? When is the "light" just a diversion? What is true liberation? Is it to be found in political expression or smoking dope or trance dancing? Even on the inner path, how can we fool ourselves in the quest for freedom? Where do we find the Buddha sitting? This essence operates at two main levels. At the more obvious level, it provides endurance and 'upward' strength, as well as helping to cleanse, strengthen and protect the aura. It would help with any new venture as well. At a more inward or subtle level, this essence is about both recognising and accepting inner beauty, as well as developing the discernment needed to discover the ways in which we deceive ourselves in the name of liberation.

Poise, humour and verbal repartee are the hallmarks of Mercutio, the marvelous character in the play, Romeo and Juliet. Good for those who are taking things (or themselves) too seriously; good for students who are being bullied. Stand back from drama, get the overview, like the director of a play and watch the interplay between actors and dialogue. Enjoy the movement of words and meaning. Brings white light into the eyes, so it is recommended if one has been reading a great deal.

Necklace of Beauty - Bulbophyllum longiflorum (Borneo)

Necklace of Beauty essence has been made with a beautiful orchid from SE Asia called Bulbophyllum longiflorum (also called Cirrhopetalum longiflorum, or Cirrhopetalum umbellatum*; this particular form is found in Borneo). Necklace of Beauty brings an exquisite, beautiful and loving energy to the area above the higher heart chakra but below the throat chakra, enabling one to feel uplifted, loved and at peace. This essence honours one's inner beauty, and the light of one's true being.

This essence also prepares one for further important steps of one's inner journey, by enabling the ego or shadow side to relinquish its hold in one, so the soul can continue its journey into light. Necklace of Beauty appears to 'open the gate' for one to experience more fully the high consciousness of the new combination Spirit of Life (or its two components Fire of Life and Furnace of Life).

* There are differences of opinion regarding the correct nomenclature in the orchid-growing world. 'Cirrhopetalum' is a name for either a section of the Bulbophyllum genus, or a genus in its own right, depending on one's point of view.

Not only does it aid our own personal growth, but also invites the Light of the Future to Take Back the Night. Blockages in the bahui centre, the Chinese Crown Chakra point, (on the top of the head) are pushed out of the aurice field; and in doing so, this enables us to extend an awareness vertically into a temple within a celestial domain. In this way the microcosm affects the macrocosm.

Redemption Dream - Paphiopedilum spicerianum (Bhutan)

Redemption Dream helps the psyche to address deep layers of guilt or shame, through bringing a shift to our dreams, enabling the mind to either consciously or unconsciously to resolve these issues. Guilt and shame are likely to cause a kind of compression (or suppression) of the heart chakra, particularly by means of blocking the higher heart chakra's ability to cleanse and heal the heart chakra. Through this blocking of the heart's energy, we lose the ability to love unconditionally, and thereby also lose inner peace. In this way one can see how guilt or shame can be major hindrances of our spiritual path. Redemption Dream helps us to remove these hindrances of the heart, specifically through vivifying and re-integrating our dreams at night, to allow ancient and deeply held issues to be aired as it were in the Theatre of the Psyche. In general, most people will benefit from taking Redemption Dream in the days before taking Necklace of Beauty; or at the very least, the exquisite energy of the latter will be more readily accessed and fully felt if Redemption Dream has been worked with first.

This essence is about aligning and identifying with beauty. As modern societies have distanced themselves from natural beauty and inner beauty, dissonance, distortion and self-degradation have followed. This has influenced us in ways that distract us from the simple beauty in nature and in ourselves. What are the innate properties of beauty? Proportion, integrity, harmony and respect for the forces and mathematical dimensions found in sacred geometry. When beauty is a guide, the results of our actions anturally and harmoniously follow Universal Principles. Beauty's strength will banish evil and ugliness from her presence. Helpful in relieving shoulder tension at the end of a working day.

Soul's Grief Release - Pleurothallis triptanthera

This is a profound and very significant essence to heal and release deeply-held sorrow of the soul. Many people carry a sense of abiding sadness in their heart through their lives, a sorrow that has no clear source. This is sorrow that has most likely accumulated over many lifetimes, and is difficult to release. It can carry in itself a sense that this sadness is the hidden reality of the soul and of Being in general. If someone holds this deep sorrow, then Soul's Grief Release will first bring that sadness to be far more fully present for some hours, or even a day or two. Gradually the sorrow is dissolved and released, and as the days pass the heart opens to a new possibility, a deeper reality in which it may be open to receive the joy of Angelic song.

It should be noted by contrast that Healing the Higher Heart and Spirit of the Higher Heart are essences that help to heal grief brought on by known causes, e.g., the death or loss of a loved one.

Source of Life - Cochlioda beyrodtiana

Made in February 2010, this had a very interesting genesis. Adrian had been hoping we would find the final energetic elements for his Therapeutic Energy Kinesiology kit when I made Base Regulator in early February, but wonderful as Base Regulator is, there was a need for a further orchid essence to be made to create the necessary energetic composition. Walking into the greenhouse, Adrian felt this delightful and delicate species from Peru calling out to him. We brought the orchid out of the greenhouse, and set it up in a room in the house, with the bowl of water placed under the blooms.

It is best to take this essence in the morning, as it has a strong awakening quality. This is not to say it is at all like coffee! The effect is more subtle, and comes about slowly. A gentle yet insistent alertness persisted with both of us for many hours that night after we had sipped the mother tincture. The most noticeable, even palpable effect of sipping the mother tincture was what felt like a fine and cool spray starting from area of the perinium, felt very clearly for several inches down the insides of the thighs. Adrian was delighted, as he could sense that this essence completed the search he had been on for his TEK kit. When combined with Base Regulator and one other essence, it created a powerful composition we have called Sacral Regulator.

Adrian in his notes said: the essence is unique in being the only orchid essence which has an obvious selective target of the sexual aspect of the Dan Tien point and part of the 2nd chakra. It seems to enhance the sensitivity of the skin on the inside of the thighs' "sex skin". It realigns the energy systems in the pelvis, it rejuvenates the feeling of being alive in the pelvis, and 're-lights' the sexual centres to be aware of the deeper nature of ones sexuality. This essence needs to be bottled in the very dark purple Miron glass bottles.

True Connections - Zygolum Rhein Harlequin, Zygonisia Blue Angel, Zygolum Louisendorf 'Rhein Moonlight'

This is a unique essence. It was made with three different but closely related orchids, each set up with its own bowl of water, and with the bowls forming an equilateral triangle. These orchid hybrids are all part of the Zygopetalum group: Zygonisia Blue Angel; Zygolum Louisendorf 'Rhein Moonlight'; and Zygolum Rhein Harlequin. It is neither a single essence nor a combination in the traditional sense, as the 3 distinct essences were all blended in a 4th bowl as soon as they were finished. This particular manner of the making of True Connections has given it some very unusual and extraordinary properties.

Crown of Serenity creates the energetic foundation needed to fully benefit from True Connections, and also Celestial Triangle builds upon that structure further. As we build the vitality of the higher chakras (the ones above the head) there are also further refinements and interconnections which are able to form or be brought into activity. True Connections has little impact in the body, reserving its action for the higher chakras. In so doing it helps us to connection to the "spiritual internet" of humanity, that area wherein we are all able to connect with one another at whatever distance we may be. This is not some airy-fairy notion. True Connections helps one to link with those people whom we need to connect with at this point, regardless of time and space. It enables us to know that there is a greater connection in humanity than we have been prepared to admit, and that at a higher spiritual level we are all a part of the greater universal consciousness of all beings.

Vital Core - Phragmipedium besseae

Vital Core is strongly energizing of the Root and 2nd chakras, as well as the gall bladder meridian. While having some activity on the Crown, Throat and Heart chakras, its action is primarily in the two lower chakras whereby it provides a strong 'get up & go' effect. The effect on the 2nd chakra is intriguing: though energizing, it is not a sexual energizing. It helps to release stored / blocked energies, including stored negative energies, and thereby helps to resolve shadow aspects of the Sacral chakra. In this way, it seeks to restore the natural sacredness of the 2nd chakra.

Vital Core works at levels beyond that of Sacral Release; it can be a good idea to work with the latter first, and then to follow up with some days of Vital Core. In some respects Vital Core can be seen and used as a potent yang counterpoint to the yin qualities of Celestial Siren, which was made the same week in November 2009.

Phragmipedium besseae is a species of slipper orchid which was discovered in Peru in 1981. In our process of making this essence, the orchid requested to have the process take place largely in the evening and into the dark of the night. A full moon on that clear night shone through the partially-curtained window, its beam upon the orchid and the bowl of water. This not only brought out the yang qualities of the orchid, but also enabled it to better access the shadow aspects of our lower chakras. (This also accounts for Vital Core having some very different qualities to the essence Radiant Strength of the Dancing Light Orchid Essences of the USA, which was made with the same species of slipper orchid.)

A very good essence to help you manifest your goals, and which brings joy to the heart yet is also grounding. Helps you to be awake and in the present moment with a sense of cheer and lightness. This essence wants you to straighten the spine, and not slouch, thus enabling the heart to be both strong and open. Feel the delight and excitement that you felt as a child once more, despite the trials and troubles the years may have brought your way. Having faced the challenges life brings, let us not be weighed down by their memory. Slip on these fairy-shoes, and step out with assurance into a brand new day, on to a path which is either new or at least renewed.

To some degree this essence presents a type of ‘litmus test’, relating to our inner journey and its expression in life. If we are on our deeper spiritual path, and living in accordance with that, one will feel joy when taking this essence. If there is any lack of harmony between the path and its outer manifestation, then the emotional response will be subdued, as the orchid helps one to realign within.

Bulbophyllum frostii is a specie found at about 1400 meters in evergreen forests in Vietnam, and was first described in 1926. It grows in the warm section of our greenhouse.

There are two forms of this essence, one with and the other without essence of 24 karat Gold. This form is more appropriate for helping remedial circumstances, for example if someone tends towards selfdestructive cycles. They need compassion for themselves first, and the gold helps ensure that this groundwork of the heart's understanding is taken on board. Follow up after a few weeks with the non-gold form of Wisdom of Compassion.

For therapists, it can be useful to know that Wisdom of Compassion (without the gold essence added) acts primarily on the Heart chakra, Inner Chamber of the Heart Chakra, and the Crown Chakra.

Wisdom of Compassion with Gold acts primarily on the Heart Chakra, the Ajana Centre between the eyebrows, and the Dreamtime Point at the back of the head.
