“Humans are in varying degrees of trance most of the time and are not aware of it. There is no pure trance state, as many commonly believe. Rather, there is a continuum of states of consciousness.”
– The Warrior’s Edge
Clematis – Enter the Waketime
When life becomes so overwhelming that we would rather turn the other way, sink into slumber or reach for sedatives and other numbing substances, the flower energy of Clematis gently calls us back home to ourselves and to our Souls without tying us down. It helps us to actualize our fondest dreams instead of just letting them float out there in the ethers. It facilitates strong, conscious connections with the earth, the elements, the sun and the cosmos.
There are some very otherworldly influences predominant throughout the month of June 2016. The effects of these influences can lead to confusion, illusion and delusion or bring synchronicities, epiphanies and higher visions. The month begins with Neptune, planet of both sea and brain fog squared by the Sun and Venus while slowing down to turn Retrograde on June 13th until November 19th. Dreams are becoming significantly heightened and solutions to nagging problems are beginning to appear. While Neptune is direct we tend to carry on with our habits and thoughts without much question as to whether they are aligned with our deeper truth. With Neptune Retrograde these next few months, we will see more and more through falsities and be inclined to do something about what we see. The monkey wrench in all of this is Saturn’s square to Neptune since late 2015 until the end of 2016. This aspect, which will be reignited on June 17th has been ruthlessly testing our persistence in achieving our goals.
The urge is to break free from authoritarian constraints and fight for our rights, but the trick is to fight in ways that do not undermine our own progress. Instead of “throwing the baby out with the bathwater” we are challenged to release beliefs, patterns, and things that no longer serve any useful or benign functions while integrating the lessons that have been learned in our interactions with them so that they do not have to be repeated.
There’s a time to sleep, dream and show compassion and there’s a time to open our eyes, shake our limbs and take a good look at what’s going on in the world. The Age of Aquarius is the Age of Information and Truth-Seeking. Instead of blindly accepting the poisons and disinfo cast over us like a ginormous fish net by massively corrupt regimes we should be asking for and seeking for truth. Seek and Ye shall find! We should be struggling to break free from the matrix. If we are just accepting whatever is shoved in our faces whether we like it or not or just trying to ignore it there is something severely wrong. We must be awake in order to get out of this mess. In fact, waking up is the first step to getting out of it. If we’re actually awake the net of confusion that was cast over us begins to disintegrate.
Clematis is indicated for the following conditions:
- procrastination in the worst possible times and situations
- feeling trapped and victimized
- grass-is-greener syndrome
- disinterest in present circumstances
- escapism and drug addiction
The flower essence of Clematis serves as a bridge between various dimensions and states of consciousness – dreaming and wakefulness, dense earth and the astral plane, perceived reality and that which exists beyond our concepts of time and space. There are many different species of this hardy vine but they all share the same Oversoul or presiding intelligence. It awakens us to the present moment, opening and expanding our physical and environmental awareness. Clematis strongly resonates with artists, dreamers, musicians, and shamanic healers. It’s the flower that helps us keep a foot in both worlds when we need to, and helps bring stability after states of shock, confusion, denial, and awe.
Let’s face it, waking up is not necessarily easy to do, and sometimes, when we’re weary from life’s battles it downright sucks. We can feel and be vulnerable and spacey when we’re in the process of it, so we need all the assistance and energetic protection we can get. We also need to develop or muster up some serious determination to stay awake under certain conditions. Clematis can be of great assistance during the next few weeks of increasing energy and light, wherever we happen to be. With energetic support from this flower, let us boldly enter the Wake-time!
Flowers can elevate our consciousness and assist in our healing, but some of the most delicate among them can address things that make us very feel edgy and uncomfortable. Therefore, my Flower Essence readings, or any readings for that matter are not always for the faint of heart. Book an appointment with me if you’re interested in discovering the flower essences could address your personal challenges and astral transits.
