Day 23: Walnut
Oracle Card for the Day: Isolt ~ Undying Love
Meditation: 14 minutes // Reflections (Insight Timer) // Kangse (Ending bell)
Notes: Dropped in and tapped into Bree’s grounding and crown opening visualisation. I heard my soul say to be today. I also saw to show love to a work colleague.
Mindful Moment: Fear of forever making mistakes with my intuition. Fraud. Imposter. It feels infinitely ingrained in my deeper thoughts that one’s version of The Holy Spirit leads to them isolation, homelessness, manipulation, a bad relationship with money, pride, and ultimately an outcast. I am scared to succeed and to fail. If I look to that he who I have seen “successfully and without doubt” follow his own internal spiritually guiding force, I see nothing but failure. But maybe he is abundant in his own right. Who am I to judge? All I know is those things which he does not wish to have, I long for. An eternal love, financial security, an unconditional relationship with my (future) children, a curiosity and willingness to learn from others, and a pursuit of personal evolution with love as it epicentre.
Arrangement: With the oracle of Isolt I felt inspired to place the remedies on my favourite installation in my room. I have so much love for the plentiful peace lily, the pom-poms on the chair and the arrangement of the items. At random I selected the remedies to semi-circle the lily.
The Pick: The crown jewel.
Observations: Tingles on my mid-to-low back, like parallel planks running vertically. Heavy, rooted, grounded. Still, calm, asleep but awake and live inside. Spiritual paralysis. Gratitude aftershock: thank you remedies for allowing me to rest.

Specific to Walnut
Bach Classification: For everyday emotional states (2nd 19)
Preparation: Boiling method
Primary Remedy: Settling into change. Resistance to change.
Secondary Remedy: Swayed by the opinions of others regarding one’s own life choices.
Receptivity: Bullet-proof to interference. Clear-headed judgement and a fresh start.
 To become astray from one’s purpose as a result of advice-giving friends, past experiences, and anything externally influential. Think podcasts or anything else that gets thrown your way that creates resistance and temptation against your heat’s truest desire. Walnut is a great remedy for the seasons of change: teething, puberty, childbirth, menopause, travelling, career transitioning, retirement, marriage, divorce, relationships, and the uptake of a new religion or hobby. I am intrigued to see when and how often I will pull this remedy since I feel like I am preparing to leave. Change is leaving behind of something.
This one did my head in a bit but basically I understand it to be the remedy for when you have a strong desire to do something but it defies all logic. Your own logic, the logic of others, the logic of society but in your heart it feels right. Walnut gives you the limitless courage to act on this desire and follow your heart against all odds.
