This is such a beautiful essence and exactly what I needed. I usually don't take much time for self-care or schedule it and then do something more important instead. After two weeks I felt a shift towards being more attentive to myself and my needs and actually following through with resting, going to bed early, taking a bath when my body felt cold and rigid. I also felt a general softening in my being and being better at letting things go.
I feel like this elixir returns us to our original essence, our seed where everything is contained and nothing else needed. It is not the luscious flowering of the peony elixir but more like a gentle little fresh spring flower- humble and unadorned and beautiful- needing nothing, containing everything. It helps me remember who I truly am without any embellishment.
Such a lovely elixir that gave a feeling of such contentment. I went to a regular acupuncture appointment and when asked what I needed worked on, I could not think of anything needing repair or fixing. I felt like everything was as it should be. That I truly desired nothing. As I acknowledged this, I thought wow! What an amazing elixir. It helps me to just be. Be content and not want for anything. What power there is in that! So I told my acupuncturist to do work on whatever it was she felt I needed, based on my pulse, energy, and the intuition she had on it.
I went home afterwards and thought deeply on this profound feeling of contentment. It was wonderful. During these pandemic times, we want for so much to be different than it is, and how magical to feel contentment in this time. I reordered more when I finished the first bottle. Definitely one of my new favorites.
Thai was one of my first purchases with Lotus Wei and one that I've been meaning to come back to. Gentle but strong, it really helped in the self-love department.
While taking this elixir I felt more gentle with others, the world, myself. I was able to take deep breaths before reacting and was in an overall good mood most of the time. Things just felt light and carefree. I'm okay with where I am in my journey and felt the pressure of "do more, be more" dissolve. I was able to rest and felt radiant within myself.
