If you feel drawn to Desert Lupine flower essences, you may have found yourself in one or two situations where you feel like someone is antagonistic or against you. Or you may feel at times that the conditions around you are in opposition to you, rather than in support of you. You may feel misunderstood or that you are exposed to a world that is showing you its harsher side.
Your response may be to physically freeze or you may have the desire to run away. You may feel panic or that your heart has been disturbed. You may feel confused why these situations are arising around you. Your inclination may be to downshift into stillness and to not engage.
Desert Lupine (Lupinus sparsiflorus) catalyzes movement, engagement and strength, even in seemingly adverse environments. Rather than becoming immobile when a challenge hits, you can move through it more gracefully – and move your physical body as well – rather than shutting down and becoming still or immobile.
Instead of shutting down and pulling away, you find that you can actually move into the fire and engage peacefully. With a newfound sense of strength, your foundation becomes quietly unshakeable.
Desert Lupine flower magnifies elegance, peacefulness and fearless expression. Rather than avoiding situations that razz us, we can move into the heart of them despite fears or discomfort. We are more able to express ourselves and speak from the heart without fear.
As we move into the center to engage, there is more space, curiosity and freedom to allow a new pattern or situation to arise. We can open to new possibilities and solutions through the maze of a seemingly uncomfortable dialogue or challenge.
Rather than getting stuck navigating choppy waters and old patterns, you’re able to grab the wheel and chart a new course of action that benefits everyone in a fresh new way.
Desert Lupine is a wildflower that floods the Sonoran desert landscape with washes of indigo in springtime. Found in the southwestern U.S. and northern Mexico, this gorgeous blue pea family flower grows between one and four feet tall. In springtime the desert is covered in a carpet of blue flowers pollinated by honeybees and bumblebees.
