In terms of energetic vibrations, the black pine is quite different from other pines, like our local ponderosa pine. Ponderosa pine has a feminine, comforting, reassuring energy; it knows about our earthly problems and empathizes. Black pine, however, seems masculine or genderless. It takes us out and away from the earth and shifts our focus and attention to the spiritual realm. The message of the black pine, whether or not you are a believer in any god or gods, is that there is another, higher dimension; a realm of spirits, or gods, or souls, or whatever naming system we subscribe to to describe a realm of existence outside of our earthly life, outside of time as we understand it here on earth in relation to our own lifetime, and outside of our physical body. This enlightening essence was created by hand by our herbalist, Ava Zhan.
Feeling a longing for god or a spiritual dimension to one's life, grief, wanting a closer connection with one's deity.
This flower essence is beneficial to the person who feels that life has become reduced to realism, day to day minutiae, tasks, and chores, and who would like to open his or her heart and mind anew to a sense of wonder, and of the multidimensionality of our human existence, by becoming more tuned in to the spiritual dimension. For people who are on a spiritual path, this essence may help them feel closer to their god or gods. Also useful for those who may be nearing the end of their lives.
