Healing Properties: Hibiscus flower essence energizes the first and second chakras, undoing blockages in the lower back and spine, and healing reproductive ailments, including infertility problems, frigidity or lack of feeling, as well as acting as a balm for long-held scars of sexual trauma. The flower remedy assists in releasing pent up creative forces within the womb area and literally sets one free to dance again in life. The essence stimulates sexuality and passion.
Red Hibiscus, I greet your flame,
Hi'iaka, I call your name,
Teach me your sacred song and dance.
My soul full of passion, you enhance.
Latin: Hibiscus rosa-sinensis
Color(s): Red or Purple
Archetype: Hi’iaka-I-Ka-Poli-O-Pele (Hi’Iaka-in-the-bosom-of-Pele. Hi’iaka, Supreme Goddess of the Hula, according to legend, was born of the Earth Mother Goddess Haumea, as an egg that transformed into a beautiful girl. Hula is a sacred study, undertaken by aspiring sorcerers and healers.
Signature: An evergreen shrub which blooms year round but whose blossoms last only a day or two. The reproductive organs of the hibiscus flower protrude conspicuously from the center of its five flaring petals.
Healing: The Hawaiian Islands are a place of high mythological drama, with the greatest drama of all centering upon the antics of Pele and Hi'iaka, for these two legendary sisters bring the fiery passion of the volcano and the liberating sensuality of the Hula to life. Together, they bridge the mystical gap between the unseen powers of nature and humanity, for Pele is fire, itself, and Hi'iaka is the living human form of woman, but she cannot sustain this form, for her realm is that of raw, volcanic energy. Hi'iaka becomes a living embodiment of Pele's explosive power, coupled with the qualities of compassion, service, human love and sexuality.
The Hibiscus flower comes to you today as a flaming chalice, inviting you to live your truest passions. The fires of Pele give rise to dancing flames of swirling intensity - leaping toward the heavens. Their movement serves as a metaphor, showing the way to true liberation. Hi'iaka's beautiful dance reveals the physical embodiment of Pele's fire, reminding you that you must ground this energy in your body. Swaying, undulating, and flowing to the rhythm of the cosmos strengthens the root chakra, allowing you to become rooted and safe in a world of inevitable change and uncertainty.
Perhaps most of what is wrong with the Western world can be traced to the fact that we have forgotten how to move our hips. Hibiscus thaws that which needs thawing, the frozen places inside where our passion cannot live - especially in the region of the first and second chakras. Hi'iaka gracefully moves her body to the cosmic tune of nature's symphony. Dancing amidst pounding shores and an erupting volcano wreathed in flowers and nature's garment, she creates the story of life. Choose to live your life to the flowing rhythms of the dance, and bring harmony into each day. Journey to the ocean, a mountain, or your own special nature retreat in order to experience the dance of the elemental world. Feel the warmth of the inner feminine tending the hearth of your creative passion as you sip Hibiscus tea by a warm fire. Your volcanic spirit is dormant no longer. Arise and move your hips. You are alive and well.
