The essence of Spring Beauty is a powerful tool for working with your inner child. The one that is not detached from her magic, imagination, and deep sense of wonder. She can transform fallen tree trunks into the bow of a pirate ship that she captains with her friends. She gently plucks flower petals and stirs them into a potion with pleasure and reverence. She expects goodness from the world, and giggles as she is surprised by moments that only nature can produce. An Eagle flying by, a found feather, a carrot that looks like it’s dancing.
When you are wanting to spend more time enjoying the outdoors and reconnecting with your own wild nature, this is the essence for you.
During times where you want to, or have to, explore the unknowns in your life. Such as a big move, change of careers, or other transformational portal, Spring beauty helps turn fear of the unknown into a anticipation of happy surprises.
Spring beauty grows low to the ground at the edge of wild places in early spring. You can spot it’s purple coating from far away, like a signal beckoning you into the woods edge. The forest transforms from a fearful place viewed with apprehension, into a playground ready to surprise you.
Qualities: Playful exploration, return to nature, inner child healing, entering into the unknown, embracing magic.
