When we first found pink shooting star growing wild in our meadows, we could only locate four miniature blossoms, so of course we could not even imagine picking the blooms to infuse them. Instead, Ava used an alternative method, where the glass vessel is arranged beneath the blooms and infused for a few hours, and then the flowers are rinsed briefly by the water, which is recaptured by a second vessel, in order to bring the discharged energy that hovers over the water down into the vessel. This resulted in an extremely potent essence, with a potency of ten on a scale of one to ten.
But it happens often that a person psychically attuned to plant spirits is able to ask them to grow in larger abundance next season, and they oblige. The following spring, we found a large patch, and the next we found many pink shooting stars scattered across a few adjacent meadows.
Taking earthly troubles and personal dramas too seriously, drowning in worries and difficulties; feeling that one's existence is too mundane or too disconnected from magic, mystery, and lightness; having a life or mind filled with negativity; not even remembering how to be spiritual; feeling revolted by ugliness.
The pink shooting star is a flower of magic and enlightenment. It lifts up the person who is overly attached to and engrossed in earthly problems, as if on a magic carpet, to a higher mental and spiritual plane. Worries, preoccupations, and negativity fall away to reveal a lighter and happier view of one's life and surroundings. Pink shooting star helps one to see difficulties as passing and possible to overcome, and to move from seeing their life as ugly, difficult, or depressing to seeing it as pure, spiritually rich, and filled with possibilities. For the person who hates ugliness, poverty, stench, or garbage in his or her view, it helps them experience these aspects of life with compassion and understanding.
