Magnolia: Magnolia grandiflora
I spotted your big white flowers a year ago, on newly planted trees along the path of my morning walk.
It was not the right time, yet.
A year passed by, and again your large blooms caught my attention. I brought home one of your magnificent flowers last week and placed it in the big glass bowl of spring water on the altar under the mango tree, hanging low with fruit. Your sweet, heavy scent mingled with that of ripening mango.
The next morning I awoke, realizing I had left you outside all night long, unintentionally. A big storm of storms had swept through the area in the dark of night. Thunder clapping and lightening striking, the winds blew loose branches and ripe fruit off of the tree. I expected to find you dumped over or filled with rain water.
The bowl was sitting just as I had placed it and the water had absorbed your perfume.
Within less than a week, the flames of revolution have been lit across the country, attempting to right the wrongs that have been in place for generations. The ancestors of our ancestors have lived under the domain of the same power structures that we are standing up to in the present moment. The saga continues.
We are at an intersection of time and space where the potential exists to shift out of centuries old belief systems and paradigms. We are in the birth canal. The birth process is painful, ask any mother who has experienced labor. Our entire planet is going through labor right now.
Magnolia + Storm have stepped forward to offer their assistance.

Magnolia is the ANCESTRAL flower. Its genus is 100 million years old and it is thought to be the prototype of the first angiosperms, flowering plants that are pollinated by insects. Magnolias are actually older than bees and butterflies.
I normally sit with the flower and give you my messages. For this particular essence, since it has so much to do with the "personal is political" aspect of our times, and our intersection with the collective, I have included some messages from other flower essence alchemists that are pertinent. The source websites are included.
The addition of STORM energy to this particular flower gives it a kick, to give us the momentum and impetus to keep moving forward, breaking through any obstacles and obstructions that stand in our path, internal or external, towards a world of our own making.
