Thunbergia mysorensis
Message: Reveal yourself

Why it’s Special 

Native to southern India, the Indian Clock Vine is considered to be one of the most beautiful flowering vines in the world. Growing in the tropical forests near Mysore, at elevations of almost 3000 feet, it boasts bright yellow + maroon flowers with red petal tips. The vine grows up to 20 feet long and has sweet nectar that attracts hummingbirds + sunbirds. Because of its bright colors + fun shape, it is also known as brick & butter vine, lady’s slipper vine, dolls’ shoes + the Mysore trumpet vine. It makes an excellent addition to any tropical or warm-climate garden, pergola or greenhouse, blooming from spring through fall.

What it Reveals

If you find yourself attracted to the Clock Vine flower, you may be ready to see or unleash a part of you that is very deep inside your heart. There may be something bubbling inside you that you've not previously wanted to see or face, because it might require some sort of discomfort.And yet, there is also a part of you that is so totally ready for a big change - a bolder expression of you, a more expansive manifestation of all you have to offer in this life, that requires you to fully look at what's been previously hidden.

You may also be sensing that you are standing at a crossroads, choosing between two very different paths to take. Or you may have the feeling that you are standing at a doorway, knowing full well that if you step through it, you will feel a grander acceptance of gifts and abundance.

Along with knowing this movement forward will create a fuller capacity of who you are + who you are to be in this life, you may be feeling fearful of what you would be required to change or leave behind. You may not even be able to see the full expression of you yet, because it is beyond your current imagination or patterning, but you can sense that is it there + you are being asked to step toward or into it.

What the Elixir Catalyzes

The Clock Vine flower enhances our ability to be completely honest + self-accepting of whatever our experience is, and when the time is right, be open to showing others what it is we are experiencing on the deepest levels. It magnifies our ability to let things fall apart + disassemble, in order to reassemble them into a new order, one that's more aligned with our highest potential. It helps us tap bravery + courage to look fearlessly at our lives, and where there is misalignment, able to do something about it.

We may not know what it is or fully understand it, but that which is bubbling up within us gains a direct channel through our heart. We are able to 'take out our guts and put them on the table' - for ourselves to see + be with, as well as having the bravery to allow our closest loved ones to also witness or gain a window into what's happening deep within us. We see more clearly whatever is it that we have not been confronting within ourselves.

Clock Vine flower gives us the power, strength, vulnerability, ‘real-ness’, rawness + openness to make big, bold changes that will catapult us forward. It helps us have difficult conversations and see the big picture of what's next.
