Calendula officinalis (orange)
Positive qualities: Healing warmth and receptivity, especially in the use of the spoken word and in dialogue with others
Patterns of imbalance: Argumentative, lack of receptivity in communication with others; verbal abuse
Calendula as a flower essence helps us listen and communicate in ways that are healing and empowering, uniting Mind, Heart and Higher Guidance. Calendula is a receptive cup holding the solar light and warmth in the maternal embrace of the life forces of the earth.
On the level of the individual soul, it opens our hearts to receive the spiritual light, to receive the Word of another with that same receptivity and warmth we experience in the Calendula blossom. Thus Calendula flower essence is an excellent balm for human relationships, for cultivating receptivity and empathy. Rather than be wounding or cutting in our communications, Calendula teaches us to touch each other gently and profoundly with light and warmth of our words.
