Bleeding Heart

The Bleeding Heart flower is very special to me. During one of the most difficult periods of my life I grew a special connection with her. I started taking the flower essence at the suggestion of  a spiritual advisor but soon discovered a family of Bleeding Hearts lived on the path of the 22nd Street stairs. Anytime I would run or walk up  and down the stairs I would be greeted by them. I don’t believe in coincidences but only the universe confirming your direction.

Bleeding heart is a well tested flower essence and has been shown to release painful emotional attachments and heartaches from ended relationships. This might be the result of a breakup, a death, someone moving away, or getting a new job, or a tragedy with a pet. All of these incidents separate the person from their heart’s desire. Bleeding Heart flower essence helps mend the heart almost immediately, as if the person that was involved in the heart ache genteelly released their hold on it.

PS: I’m starting to take her again today.

Repost from 10/2009 – such is the advice I am taking upon my life again.

I love this quote. I find it to be so serene and noble. And for a while I used this as a mantra to mend a broken heart.

But if you do not find an intelligent companion, a wise and well-behaved person going the same way as yourself, then go on your way alone, like a king abandoning a conquered kingdom, or like a great elephant in the deep forest. – Buddha
