If you’re drawn to the Chaparral flower, you may have old patterns, beliefs or eons of experience as a person devoted to spiritual path, awakening or healing professions, that would lead you to feel alone or lonely. You may feel as if the only way to reach success in the most meaningful endeavors is to do it alone.
You may have experienced a perpetual loneliness as a child or have felt it now as an adult, even when surrounded by people. It may indicate a pattern of the ‘hero’s journey’ only being worthy when struggling or ‘going it alone’. During fierce transitions in life, you may have a tendency to feel that you have to take drastic measures or go out on a limb by yourself.
Chaparral flower (Larrea tridentata) helps us locate a deeper, stiller, stronger foundation within ourselves. We can lean into this strength, without feeling like we are carrying the world alone. We can let go of needing to go it alone and allow a sense of accompaniment or community.
We can access our deep inner wisdom without feeling that it isolates or separates us from the rest of the world. We bridge differences and recognize more commonalities with people we encounter.
Chaparral, also known as the Creosote Bush, is a powerful plant found in the Sonoran desert. It’s greasy leaves have a unique scent that fills the air after a rain in the desert. The calming scent is so strong it can be perceived all throughout the urban centers like Phoenix.
Chaparral tends to grow by itself, with no plants surrounding it. It’s leaves are antibacterial and antifungal. A powerful detox, it cleanses the liver and blood.
