Edelweiss, the song featured in the Rogers and Hammerstein musical The Sound of Music, was a gift today in a session I did with a client.
It arrived, popping into my head, as most do, (have I told you about the Heavenly DJ?) in an extremely relevant moment.
It turned out to be a spiritual healer that was most appropriate and most welcome in the space.
Not only did my client know the song, AND sang it to me, but he also bought an Edelweiss flower when he was travelling, many years ago in Europe.
The spiritual significance of Edelweiss is so encouraging.
It stands for daring courage and noble purity. A hardy plant that blooms in difficult conditions, covered in a layer of fluff, protecting itself against the tough conditions. Used as a symbol of bravery and an award.
To climb and return with Edelweiss was considered a great achievement.
It's been protected in the wild, but is now grown all over colder places in the world, and for skincare ranges and medicinal preparations - Edelweiss is described as a miracle flower - good for vascular health with anti ageing properties and useful in cases of dysentary, diphtheria and tuberculosis.
As I look into the message Edelweiss brings, it says "Tadahh! I made it!" to me. I see its journey through a tough space and how it presents itself, outstretched, and opened really wide.
That star shape is magical. Can you see? If you close your eyes and ask - can you feel the energy of it?
The vibration of flowers can move us deeply into a place of wellness.
It may have traditionally been hard to find, but its generous openness, the exhilarating trip it led you on, and the beautiful energy it shares, is worth the hike.
What a gift.
