Datura is the Queen of the desert. Her flower essence helps us to “give death” to those things in our life or those parts of our psyche, which are long overdue for dismissal. Sometimes letting go and “giving death” is truly the most compassionate and loving thing we can do for these parts of our lives and ourselves.
It is only through freeing up our energy in this way that we can breathe new life into creative pursuits which have lain abandoned for too long, to nourish ourselves fully once more, and to engage with those relationships which provide real nourishment. She reminds us that death and endings offer the space and nourishment needed for new life, new beginnings. She helps us to let go, at long last, of those things which we’ve clung to for far too long, which it is now time to lay to rest.
Like all powerful beings, Datura deserves and commands total respect and reverence. I strongly discourage anyone from ingesting her medicine in its physical form unless it is a part of their culture’s spiritual tradition, and they are properly ceremonially prepared to do so. Flower Essences, such as this, however, are totally safe ways to invoke and learn from such potent teachers, as Datura. This vibrational remedy contains no constituents of the plant, only the fierce wisdom and storied presence of her blossom.
