('Hibiscus' bottle shown - All bottles have similar design) Profile Love Lies BleedingPositive qualities:
Transcendent consciousness; ability to move beyond personal pain, suffering or mental anguish by finding larger, transpersonal meaning in such suffering; compassionate awareness of and attention to the meaning of suffering.
Patterns of imbalance:
Intensification of pain and suffering due to isolation; profound melancholia due to the over-personalization of one's pain.

Love-Lies-Bleeding flower essence enables the soul to encounter and to transmute pain and suffering. Such pain is felt in an intense manner, either as mental anguish, deep-seated bodily torment, or disease. While such suffering usually has a physical component, the experience of agony is also deep within the soul itself.

The effect of such torment is to push the consciousness deeply inward; such a person is truly deep-pressed, or in the throes of depression. Love-Lies-Bleeding des not play the role of an analgesic; it does not provide direct relief from such distress. It helps by moving the soul consciousness outward from over-personal identification and isolation, to transpersonal awareness of the meaning and purpose of such an experience.

This energetic shift can often be expressed directly in the physical body, in the cessation of symptoms of pain or as a general stimulus to the immune system. However, more typically the individual is able to experience physical and mental suffering differently, within the context of a larger shared human experience. For example, one suffering from a personal illness, a particular handicap, or addiction may be impelled to reach out to others who suffer similarly.

The deepest teaching of Love-Lies-Bleeding is centered around the meaning of compassion and sacrifice. This realization within the soul is often called “Christ consciousness”-the capacity to suffer or to “bleed” not for ourselves but for all of humanity and for the redemption of the Earth itself. The ability to understand that one’s own pain is part of a larger, deeper experience of the human conditions is the key to being able to truly experience love and compassion for all living beings.
