Iris Flower Essence
Healing Properties: Iris flower essence unblocks old patterns of self-limitation and stagnation, inspiring us to the heights of beauty and grace, and restoring a path to art and creativity. Known as the ‘Paintbrush to the Soul’ Iris flower remedy is connected to the ‘Rainbow Goddess Iris” and is one of the best remedies to promote healing when one may feel dried up. Iris moistens the hardened aspects of the soul such as stagnation and procrastination. The essence enables one to find harmonious connection to the flow of self expression.
Queen of Rainbow, Iris bright,
Pour forth your creative rays of light,
As we dance, As we sing,
We rejoice in the waters,
Of your Eternal Spring.
Color(s): Over sixty genera and perhaps 1000 species
Archetype: Iris—The Rainbow Goddess. Iris, Goddess of the Rainbow, traveled through the lower (dark) and upper (light) regions with the graceful flow of an angelic dancer. She gifts humanity with the understanding that all aspects of life are sacred and it is in the weaving of the dark and light within ourselves that we find our wholeness.
Signature: A perennial herb with long, narrow, sword-shaped leaves and rootstocks, the iris has three petals, three sepals, and three stamen, symbolically relating it to the power of the trinity.
Healing: Art is born through the soul. The healing journey of Iris offers you an ensouled vision of your flowering intuitive and feeling Self - one in which you may encounter the many hues of your emotional spectrum. We heal ourselves and others by first contacting the inner nourishment or the "water of life" which sustains our ability to create beautiful things in the world as well as to act from our hearts. Iris comes to you to awaken the ever-flowing magic and creativity that resides, like a bubbling spring, deep within you. Allow this well to be tapped into and you will experience an overflowing and abundant source of energy and inspiration. Let Iris greet you there and touch your heart and soul with her Rainbow healing. The root of your being, like the golden bulbs of the Iris, will produce the wondrous color of our potential, much like a golden chalice produces the elixir of love.
