The Raven Essence Manual; A Love Affair with Nature
The Raven Essence Manual is currently in its fifth edition; it has continually evolve since the project began in 1995. The nuanced, poetic definitions of 350 essences are a distillation of years of deep meditative communion with Nature. Some people use the manual as an earth-based divinatory resource to deepen their relationship with Nature while gardeners appreciate understanding the ‘language’ of the 140 individual flowers. Holistic practitioners access the definitions in their consultations, often using some form of intuitive testing to determine which one resonates with their client.
If you know how to use a pendulum or do muscle-testing, you will enjoy accessing the lists of essences in the Table of Contents for the specific wisdom you need in the moment. Other protocols offer ways to use the definitions to explore a variety of issues such as health, finances, environment and relationships. A basic question like, ‘What wisdom do I need today? is a good way to start.
As well as the flower essence definitions, the manual outlines the origins of Raven Essences, the core philosophy and the inspiration behind each kit. General information about how the essences are made, how they work, as well as various applications for healing and personal growth make this a working textbook. Meanwhile, a sixty-page index provides a left-brain approach to accessing the attributes of all the essences.
You may find this “Raven Essences Table of Contents“ useful for intuitive testing through all the 350 essences.
