I spotted the Spider Orchid growing on a tree on the edge of the dense Monteverde rainforest in Costa Rica, opening a doorway into a new world.

Spider Orchid helps us embrace and step into the unknown with a sense of safety and even adventure. It helps us move through uncharted territories and see the world as supportive and benevolent.
The Northern Green Orchid is a rare, terrestrial orchid only found in Iceland, Greenland and Akimiski Island. A powerful antidote for feeling invisible, it helps us treasure our own unique qualities when we feel our presence is not making an impact, or that our words are not penetrating.

Northern Green Orchid teaches us how to seek out environments that support the depth of who we are as spiritual beings.
The Monteverde Rein Orchid is a terrestrial orchid that uproots subconscious fears of persecution, fear or panic.

Also known as the wild soybean, this tall yellow wildflower is found in the grassy fields of Yilan, Taiwan. The Taiwanese Wild Lily dissolves the habit of being too tight and rigid.

We can be like water and roll with the punches. Being fluid and flexible helps us experience more ease in everyday life.

We realize that our true area of influence and greatest responsibility is our own awakening, which instantly benefits others.
