If you are attracted to the Pink Torch Ginger, you may be developing a deeper awareness of a process that occurs within yourself—the process of unearthing, revisiting, and re-experiencing things that have happened in the past, in order to liberate their patterns from your system. When past painful experiences lodge within our systems, they form a sort of patterning and affect how we perceive our life as well as other people’s behavior. In other words, we’re all looking through a certain kind of filter or glasses.
Pink Torch Ginger helps us transform pain or challenges into insights, without the extremes of isolation and withdrawal, nor feeling like we need something from the outside to feel whole and complete. Instead of needing a certain kind of relationship, partner, child, career or other experience to complete us and attain our full capacity for happiness, we are able to see we have that ability innately within us. If we’re in a position that we feel like this is not happening, we may isolate ourselves. We may be aloof, distanced, lonely or feel a sense of separation or abandonment.
Pink Torch Ginger shows us how to observe our thoughts and feelings as they arise, knowing that they are coming up to come out. It is the “sacred sting” or the discomfort or pain that arises as we let go of a particular pattern. As we are in the process of cleansing or unraveling a pattern, we re-experience it on the way out. We can use that experience of a "sacred sting" to dislodge our past wounded patterns, unravel and reverse the patterning, and feel a sense of wholeness and self-completion.
If you’re attracted to Redwood, you may be feeling as though you don’t belong or that there is a lack of support in your life. A sense of instability, overstimulation, and overwhelm may be causing you to feel lost or like you don’t know in which direction to move. There might be a tendency towards immaturity—keeping your head in the clouds and not implementing the discipline necessary to make your dreams a reality.
You may also be dealing old father/masculine wounds regarding abandonment, not getting enough love and attention, or feeling generally unsupported and disregarded.
Redwood can also indicate disturbances in regards to physical balance: fears around or a tendency to fall, lack of coordination, being unstable on the feet, or even dreams of falling.
Redwood elixir helps us to feel at home no matter where we are. There is a sense of belonging and knowing that we are always supported—because we do belong and we are supported by this beautiful Earth we call home, and we can always access that unwavering stability. We allow ourselves to feel welcomed, looked out for, and completely accepted by those we trust.
This tree essence encourages us to notice where we feel a sense of community—which can be with other people or even places, environments, plants, and animals—and ask ourselves how we can create even more community. And, Redwood strengthens these bonds by opening us up to more easily receive assistance from others so we become more free to offer support in return. In other words, the more we are able to receive, the more we are able to give.
Redwood elixir allows us to tap into the stability that already exists within ourselves. By learning to observe ourselves—our thoughts, our emotions, our reactions—we can separate from those things and realize they do not define us. The biggest, vastest, most reliable version of you is the one observing all that occurs.

You may notice your mind making up scenarios about the future and expecting the worst outcome. There may be an area of your life that fills you with dread or has you spinning with negative possibilities.

Imagine the feeling we get, in the forest or in a garden, when we see a strawberry patch full of ripe strawberries. It’s like a miracle! We feel so lucky. And when we reach down to pick and eat these ruby-red jewels it’s like a secret treasure that we were lucky enough to find.
That sense of good fortune is the feeling that Strawberry Blossom imparts. It dissolves the habit of expecting or preparing for the worst and gives us a fresh outlook—a sense that anything is possible. It cuts through pessimism, worry and negative thoughts. It helps us have a deeper understanding of ourselves and our infinite possibilities for personal growth.
