Chaparral Blossoms and Quartz infused under the full solar eclipse of 2017
Chaparral / La Gobernadora commands one's attention through her expansive dominion of southwestern lands, her arresting aroma after desert rains and powerful medicine in body and spirit. She awakens a definite response within one's world, and is held in the highest regard in her local communities as her medicine is strong and far reaching. A powerful ally to walk with.
The solar eclipse energy in Leo's fiery realm was a fitting match for the strength of La Gobernadora's healing power. A quartz geode cup was filled with spring water and her golden flowers were placed on its surface to bask in the sun's rays of the truly enchanted New Mexican desert. This medicine was then preserved in Sotol spirits, another desert ally.
The Governess works closely with sun energy in her medicinal power as well. She removes what may fog of one's vision, bringing sharp clarity to situations, thereby allowing one to make divinely guided decisions that serve one's soul purpose. She also showed me how her medicine (vibrational and physical) penetrates through the toughest, false boundaries within us. These boundaries may be built up from past trauma, self created walls, put upon us by others, ancestral imprints, etc. Whatever purpose they have served at some point, they inevitably hold us back from our true state of being which is love. (With the specific intention of returning to this state I have paired this Sun Shadow essence with a Rose flower essence, with beautiful results so far.) She also can put us in touch with our true boundary, getting to know its strength and how to develop one's sense of it. Another aspect of her medicine is one of transition, especially physical death. She can guide one to their next destination, again bringing clarity to one's path.
In springtime's refreshing energy of rebirth, La Gobernadora's medicine can set one in the right direction for this new astrological year. Tune into your heart, ask for guidance in how to work with this Sun Shadow essence. She will let you know when and how to do this. Trust the answers you receive.
