I discovered a new use for one of my Mama Love Flower Essence Aromatherapy formulas tonight. I've been feeling quite anxious about getting my schoolwork done in addition to taking care of my orders, planning for various things, etc., etc. It was making it hard to stay grounded and relax. I never thought to use my Restful Sleep formula for this before but I felt like my energy was stuck high in my ribcage and I know that formula moves the energy down. So tonight I tried it and it was amazing! I used the oil but I know the spray would have worked as well. Almost instant relief but I'm still awake and able to get my work done. Later tonight, just before bed, I'll use it again and I'm sure I'll sleep much better but I really just wanted to feel the way I feel right now—relaxed and happy and doing my "work" but having fun. Awesome

It's terrifying for a person to think they might be throwing their life away! And for what? An afterlife of hell? Of course, these feelings didn't come from nowhere. We all make mistakes, want fervently for something that turns out to be a pile of bricks. More work, less fun, just a big mess and disappointment. Worse, we've been in dangerous situations. Walking on the wild side is not always fun! A lot of us know we've given up great situations to wind up in worse ones (especially in recessions). Some of us made bad bargains (for good reasons but bad is bad).
So fear, gripping fear is the reason for the Flower Essence of the Day—Angel's Trumpet. The angel in this illustration is calling for the dead to rise up once more. Death is seen as an entry into rebirth in many cultures or entry into a Promised Land (the afterlife) in many others. "Rise up! Rise up!" is the message in the Angel's Trumpet but not of your own free will alone. Surrender and follow Thy God.
As I write this post I feel weird. I grew up a Reform Jew and this way of thinking is foreign to that upbringing. If anything I got the message: "You're on your own—nobody is going to rescue you (without making your life misery). The God of the Jews (and fundamentalist Christians) can be angry and tyrannical. Trust God? Follow God? Oh, you have got to be kidding.
And that's part of the issue, too. In this life we don't have to run from misery to misery, dreading every change or transformation. Buddhists say the only constant in life IS change. And from their point of view, resisting change— grasping too tightly to what we think we possess— is the cause of the deepest suffering.
So Angel's Trumpet says let go of your resistance to these changes. Wake up from the entrancement of the status quo. Stop grasping the sides of your coffin while lying in a shallow grave. Let go and find out what lies ahead.
