FLOWEREVOLUTION: BAMBOO

This is the fourth post in a series of reflections on our adventures with Lotus Wei’s 6month FloweRevolution movement! This program focuses on the powers of a brand new flower elixir each month, and since we’re doing it together, we wanted to share our thoughts as we finish up each batch. We’re 2/3 the way through the program now and can’t recommend it enough… Even if you can’t swing the next 6 month program (which is taking sign ups NOW), we highly suggest you look at the other elixirs available to see if there is one that speaks to you. We really couldn’t be happier with the results! Click HERE to look back at last month’s post, where we focused on the Black Bat flower elixir.

SAMANTHA: July ended in a state of exhaustion and depletion and a monumental lesson in priority, trust and surrender. But August cracked me wide open in so many. The month began with my yearly journey to Esalen in Big Sur. I still can’t quite put into words everything I took away from the trip but it provided profound perspective and a deeper understanding  for my purpose. Maybe it was the workshop, maybe it was the bodywork, or possibly the people but something magical definitely happened. All I can really say is that I’m along for the ride right now. Without giving up too many personal details, I can honestly say that I feel like I’m living each day in a higher frequency. The impossible is feeling much more possible and I’m finally starting to understand what I’m capable of. Fears have diminished, my one-to-one interactions feel more connected and I’m manifesting my intentions at a much quicker rate. To top off this spectacular month, I purchased a brand new 2nd chakra crystal bowl and I can’t wait to connect with it. Oh sweet bamboo, thank you.

CAITLYN: August is by far my favorite month of the year, which has a lot to do with the fact that it is my birth month, making it generally  full of celebration, feasting and the hard to ignore Summer sun (also three of my most favorite things). This year was no different. But boy oh boy did I manage to get a lot of things done amidst the celebrating and birthday cake! For once it felt like time was on my side, and I did my best to pack it in. Besides a month’s worth of birthday festivities, there was a lovely weekend trip to celebrate a wedding held on an island off of Washington. Plus, we managed to put the finishing touches on our back house AND rent it out, start a new training regimen with our goofy black lab, take photos for the new Peacock Apothecary website and I painted our duplex’s front doors red! Another month gone by now that I’m going to have to say I owe a lot of my strength and direction to the Lotus Wei elixir. The word I keep coming back to when talking about the effects of these flower elixirs is “effortless.” I’m a busy bee anyway and get a lot done in any average month, but usually it feels like a struggle. Like there aren’t enough hours in the day or weeks in the month for me to get through my to-do list. But somehow I managed to get an amazing amount of shit done in August, while barely even noticing how effective I was really being! It all just, happened.
