If you’re drawn to the Orange Fringed Orchid flower, you may have felt criticized or under verbal attack. You may also be avoidant of conflict or wary of ruffling feathers.
When spoken to with any element of harshness, you may find yourself feeling scolded or going into states of shame or meekness. You may feel shy of authority figures or afraid of establishing firm boundaries.
Orange Fringed Orchid flower essence (Platanthera ciliaris) helps us be more fearless in the face of fierce speech or anger; other's anger simply does not affect us. Furthermore, we can dodge (or use) the electricity of others' anger to our benefit or remain “empty” in the face of rage. Therefore, there is no “hook” and the energy transforms.
When we are engaged in some kind of conflict, we have a greater ability to bounce back. We are more resilient. We can advocate for ourselves. We can talk back, speak up, exhibit fierce speech and stick up for ourselves.
Orange Fringed Orchid is a terrestrial orchid flower found in the Francis Marion Forest in South Carolina. Depending on the angle, the unique shape of this orchid flower simultaneously can look like 10 different animals, including a viper, scorpion, jellyfish, shrimp, bird, angel, mouse, elephant and a goldfish!
