This Wild Delphinium elixir was collected from my favorite place in Sedona, Arizona up in the high desert piñon + juniper trees. It’s a quiet place where not many people go, and the silver and blue green of the trees create such a beautiful contrast against the red mountains and blue sky. I found this particular flower all by itself almost to the top of the mesa, which is a several hour hike.
If you find yourself attracted to the Wild Delphinium flower, you may have recently felt a desire to be alone, feeling overwhelmed by external energies and people around you, perceiving them as a drain and a disturbance. You may have difficulties setting boundaries, leading to leeching of your energy or opening yourself to be affected by others who seek the kind of energy you carry. This experience may cause you to withdraw or isolate, feeling like you can’t fully be yourself for fear of being taken advantage of or for fear of being too fierce with others.
Alternatively, you may experience a yearning to be more comfortable with being fully yourself, no matter who you’re with or what situation you’re in. By nature you may be introverted or occasionally experience a sense of inadequacy in certain situations.
Wild Delphinium helps us experience our full, fierce selves, coming out of our shell to be seen in our most exquisite form. It enhances our ability to set firm boundaries, while at the same time enhancing our tolerance of others. It allows us to be gritty, not having to be “nice” all the time—we can be all facets of ourselves without pressuring ourselves to be a particular way.
It helps us express particular facets ourselves the may typically be challenging, like: magnetic, sexy, charming, fierce, elegant and strong. As we more fully embody ourselves, we’re more open and receptive to allowing others to be themselves—we have a greater capacity to meet and receive people exactly where they’re at. As we become more and more comfortable with all aspects of ourselves, as well as our abilities to maintain boundaries, we are more able to allow other people into our space without feeling like we’ll be consumed.
When we’re able to fully embody and be ourselves, we are more likely to experience comfort, stability and strength in all of our energetic and emotional bodies, which liberates us from the experience of having to "get" something or be a certain way. If we are fully embodying all of our exquisiteness, there is nothing to seek from external sources. If we are able to simultaneously clearly set boundaries, we can feel safe to express who we are, without being taken advantage of.
Additionally, the more we are able to embrace the qualities we have that are exquisite and in some ways, breathtaking + precious, the more we are able to appreciate those qualities in others and in the world.
In this audio recording, I share about my first experience taking the Wild Delphinium elixir ~ what I felt, what it brought out:
Also commonly referred to as Larkspur, the Wild Delphinium (Delphinium carolinianum) flower gets its name from the Latin name for dolphins, referring to the dolphin-like shape of its nectary. Growing in June and July throughout the Northern Hemisphere, Wild Delphiniums are pollinated by butterflies and bumblebees. Though the flowers are toxic in their raw form to both humans and animals, when mixed with alum, produce a beautiful blue dye.
"This one is my can’t-live-without, have-to-always-have-it-with-me. Wild Delphinium makes me more me, but better. I feel less self-conscious and really able to accept people wherever they’re at. I feel like I can actually enjoy being me, which hasn’t always been the case. Sometimes I am pretty tortured as a soul, so the fact that I can actually enjoy being in my own skin is incredible." —Mary Beth Kilinski
"I spent a lot of time searching the website for the right flower elixir for me and stumbled across this one by accident right before checkout. I knew it was the one for me as soon as I saw it. Everything about it appealed to me—the color of the bottle, the description, and of course the flower. The first time I used it I slept for hours and much deeper than I had in many years. It was so soothing and worked on a deep level." —Julie
"My experience with this flower essence has done what I hoped it would which is helping me to strengthen my boundaries. I am very empathetic to the energies of others, especially in public places and this has helped me to remember to reinforce my boundaries mentally, energetically and physically through my flower essence." —Stacey A.
"As soon as I started taking this, I felt a wild kind of confidence (which is/was not my typical). I've typically been one to people-please, allowing other's opinions to override mine as long as everyone was happy. I happened to go into a dealership to pay for getting my car worked on, and the cashier was a man who I hadn't seen in years, who had seriously been weird/creepy with me, but I'd let it pass then because: people pleaser. I felt a sudden rigidity seeing him—not restricting but defensive and powerful, like I was strengthened from within. He talked to me as I checked out about missing seeing me, and I wasn't even nervous when I shut him down completely, hinting at how creepy he had been. I didn't feel ashamed or guilty as I normally would have in this circumstance, but freed. This was truly a companion to me when I needed it!" —Celeste
"I bought this on a whim while shopping for other elixirs and it is so far my favorite! The Wild delphinium energy is delicate but powerful and transformative. With all the eclipses and chaos happening in our Universe, energetic support has been very important and this elixir is a great ally in gathering and reinforcing my energy. At first the tolerance part wasn't that important to me but as I kept taking it, I realized we can all use more tolerance right now and have added this intention to my prayer. This is a really well-rounded, supportive and fun essence." —Elena Litvack
