I recently had the opportunity to use flower essences to effect deep healing in a friend who was experiencing intense feelings left over from his divorce.

The plane glided from the stratosphere toward dawn spreading across Morocco. Layers of violet and indigo sky gradually changed to blazing gold and fiery orange as the first rays spread across the cloud layer hiding Africa’s Atlantic coast.
