Pomegranate Flower Essence
Healing Properties: A symbol of fertility, Pomegranate flower essence restores self-nurturing and regenerates fertility on all levels. This flower remedy helps to identify long-buried emotional needs, especially in relation to the mother, childbearing and creative issues.
Pomegranate ushers us down to meet,
The Sacred Feminine and Her seeds so sweet,
Bearing fruit, luscious and red,
Into Her Labyrinth,
I am led.
Latin: Punica granatum
Color(s): Deep red flower with a yellowish center.
Archetype: Persephone, Kore, Queen of the Underworld. Persephone signifies the renewed aspect of self that is to be found only if we are willing to travel into the chambers of rebirth to gather the seeds of new possibilities – a cyclic journey between the forces of birth and death.
Signature: Oval, womb-shaped buds which, when fully open, reveal a deep red flower with a yellowish center and a core of tiny seeds. The fruit is covered with a hard, dry skin.
Healing: On her journey, Persephone is protected by the luminaries, the Sun and the Moon. She knows that the gestating seeds within her will open to the sunlight even as they are watered by the changing cycles of the Moon.
Persephone is your guide. Standing between fire and water, she gazes into the beauty of Narcissus. As a bridge between the worlds, you, like Persephone, are forever crowned Queen of the Underworld, and, yet, eternally nourished by the love and mystery of Mother Earth. She will protect you as you make your descent in order to discover for yourself the splendor and magic of the mysterious forces within.
