If you’re attracted to the Rain of Gold Orchid (Oncidium altissimum) you may have recently experienced disappointment or felt the need to be guarded or protective. You may hold back, experience mistrust or feel that your heart has hardened. At times you may find yourself projecting negativity or being overly serious or closed off to possibilities.
The Rain of Gold Orchid elixir inspires boundless generosity of spirit, kindness and open-heartedness. It helps us open our hearts to the possibilities and surrender to the surprises of the present moment. It boosts our courage to extend ourselves and form new bonds of love. We can experience freedom of being joyful and see things in a new way so we can break down any barriers to love. We can allow ourselves to trust and feel that life is miraculous.
We can develop a joyful perspective of death, which makes enjoyment of life so easy and simple. Warmth, a few words, a smile, shared laughter, love and affection are what make life so meaningful and rich; Rain of Gold amplifies our capacity to enjoy the simple pleasures of being human and experiencing connection with one another.
Also known as Dancing Ladies, this orchid is known as Lluvia de Oro in central Costa Rica: Rain of Gold. A local orchid aficionado in her 80’s, Marta Sanchez, found us admiring this orchid across from her house. She noticed that we were interested in this orchid and invited us into her home and garden so we could collect an essence of it.
