From our friends at La Abeja Herbs;
Mariposa Lily (Calochortus gunnisonii) teaches us to show ourselves kindness and generosity. Those who lack the essential skill of self-nurturing can become their own harshest critic, fostering a heightened need for external reassurance, an overpowering urge to control one's own environment, and a vague sense that no matter what you accomplish, you are never enough. These destructive beliefs often stem from the unconsciously internalized attitude of one's Mother. Mariposa Lily helps to remedy these learned behaviors and attitudes by creating a safe space to release emotions tightly held in the body--particularly in the belly and womb--so that one's consciousness and sense of Self may return home to their rightful locus. Her ivory blossom invites you to reconnect with the feminine qualities of slowness, trust, receptivity, and the feeling of being truly held. Taken over time, this essence helps to cultivate a liberated feeling of autonomy, strengthens the supportive and nurturing voice of the inner-Mother, and lays the groundwork for deep self care.
