Common Names: Souther Arrowwood, Possumhaw, Walter"s Viburnum, Sweet Viburnum, Rusty Blackhaw
This is an essence to protect the sacred feminine in both males and females. Its tiny lavender-pink blossoms speak to you of your more delicate and sensitive spiritual self while the flower’s golden center
anchors the solar radiance and strength of spiritual presence into your physical body.
Viburnum is a woody bush and a survivor that can survive the harsh beach conditions of a Florida hurricane or the cold frosts of a Michigan garden. This plant was found along a public stretch of beach on the Florida Gulf Coast
surrounded by the protection of a forest of palmettos, cactus, and snakes.
It was truly an honor to be allowed to pass these many layers of protection to find this beautiful delicate flower with its intoxicating spicy scent.
This, then, is an essence for the more delicate child or adult that they may be protected in their flowering. It is an essence for survivors who have had their protection broken down by harsh circumstances and challenges of the physical plane.
Viburnum sets up clear boundaries and connection with the Angelic and Elemental protectors that will hold a safe space for our unfoldment. To be able to produce a sweet, spicy aroma from such a small flower is evocative of the power of a protected spirit. So, too, may you flower from your wood branches under the protection of your guardians and your strong connection to the shifting Earth beneath you.
