Shadow Ally

She is the mightiest. Both queen and grandmother. The tallest cactus species in the world whose flowers feed bees during the day and bats at night. The essence of her flowers can also feed our psyche and spirit as we encounter the shadows within ourselves and of others. She offers a transmutative property to shift our shadow into a source of strength and confidence. She guides us to recognize that the shadow of others is not their underlying essence. <<<<<<<•••••••••••>>>>>>> We are in a time when the injustices of the world are being illuminated in rapid fire succession. It can be overwhelming to say the least and straight up heartbreaking...the kind of heartbreak that can lead to paralysis. Mighty cardon offers a solid anchor and resilience.

A cardon seedling can crack a rock and begin growing in the cavity sans a soil medium. She is a survivor who knows how to turn a seemingly hard and barren microsystem into a den of sustenance.

<<<<<<<•••••••>>>>>>>>>> Leonie Blackwell speaks of cardon cactus flower essence in her book “Making Sense of the Insensible:The Ten Injustices of Our Life Lessons” as one of the essences that can be an ally for navigating the Injustice of Deception. We will likely continue to see injustice and deception in our lifetime. How we adapt and become fluid in our response to these experiences and the resulting somatic tremors is up to us. Gathering your quiver once again, cardon cactus is the wise grandmother of transitional shadow and dynamic resistance.
