ENCHANTER´S NIGHTSHADE (Circaea lutetiana)
Alchemy. Union of opposites. The sacred marriage. Oneness and connectedness.
For inner conflict; being stuck over major decisions; feeling torn and ‘split’; projecting one’s Shadow on to others or the world. Being fearful, lonely or isolated. Longing for mystical union. For alchemical transformation of the Self.
“I enter into the sacred marriage within.”
Enchanter’s Nightshade helps us to unite apparent opposites, or resolve inner conflict, by shifting us to a higher level of consciousness – e.g. if we are caught between the desire to be active and make a difference ‘vs’ the desire to relax and simply ‘be’, or feel torn between following our heart or fulfilling duty. It is like a Zen teacher which helps us to transcend paradox, and expands our awareness to new horizons. It can be a challenging essence to work with, as it shifts us beyond the stuckness and limitation of ‘either-or’ to ‘both-and’.
It is also for mental processes spinning out of control – for fears and anxieties, or being troubled by our own Shadow. It helps us integrate our dark Shadow and befriend our ‘enemies’. It unites warring opposites.
At a higher octave, it promotes mystical awareness and the ‘sacred marriage’ within. It helps us re-member that everything is One. It aids shamanic journeying and can give us glimpses into the magic of the Otherworld.
We regret that essences cannot be shipped outside of Europe due to recent laws prohibiting the postage of liquids.
