I am not one of those mediums who has been "seeing spirit since I was a little child..."
Back in 1992 I was involved in a skiing accident which left me with a severe head trauma.
My noggin was hit very very hard. So hard that my nose ended up on the right side of my face. The accident blew my third eye wide open and was followed by many years of confusion, disrespectful spirit interference and all 'round discomfort.
Because I was not ready in the least in all the ways that it is good for one to be ready for this type of psychic opening experience, I was completely overwhelmed and would find myself in a state of fear. A lot.
I used prayers, candles, crystals, incense and even hugged the tree on my front lawn to help me stay safe and grounded through my numerous spontaneous and uninvited spirit experiences.
Nothing really "worked" in the sense that I felt better, calmer or more centered. I feel certain the things I mentioned above supported me in some way on my journey. It's just that none of them helped me to feel better while I was in the midst of my experiences.
Until one night when I was having one of my spirit experiences while the man who is now my husband (and who has been for 24 years now!) was staying with me.
As the room began to fill up with uninvited spirits and I became more and more distressed with the overwhelming energy he remembered he had a small kit of flower essences with him and that there was one in that kit to help with "psychic protection".
Mountain Pennyroyal was about to enter my life.
Without telling me what it was he said "Here, let me put a drop of this under your tongue."
I let him.
And within 5 or so seconds I was completely back to normal. My heart rate slowed back down. My trembling stopped and I was calm and centered once again. It was as if nothing had even happened.
I could not believe it. I had struggled for so many years...
I had never heard of Mountain Pennyroyal. The next day I ordered two bottles and had them sent immediately.
From that point on up until seven years ago, when I began to properly develop and integrate my intuitive gifts, I had Mountain Pennyroyal in my "kit" at all times. And I am happy to say that once I chose to surrender my resistance to my new-ish abilities and undertake mediumship development, I have not needed it again.
That's what can happen when you say "yes". :)
Staying on topic... here is a wonderful description of the qualities and applications of Mountain Pennyroyal borrowed from anandaapothecary.com, quoting from the book "Flower Essence Repertory" by Patricia Kaminsky and Richard Katz:
"Mountain Pennyroyal Positive qualities:
Strength and clarity of thought, mental integrity and positivity.
Patterns of imbalance:
Absorbing negative thoughts of others, psychic contamination or possession.
Hygiene is as important to the life of the soul as it is for the physical body. Mountain Pennyroyal particularly addresses an individual’s mental field which may be devitalized due to psychic congestion from too many negative or chaotic thought forms.
There can also be mediumistic tendencies in such persons, so that they unconsciously absorb the negative thoughts of other persons or entities. When developed to an extreme state, the individual may no longer be able to think clearly for him/herself, or make rational decisions.
There may be a tendency to possession, especially if the person is prone to using alcohol or other drugs. In these cases, seemingly conscious actions are actually carried out at the behest of others’ intentions rather than those of the true Self. Mountain Pennyroyal works as a purgative; it has the powerful ability to cleanse and expel negative thoughts, or the unhealthy intrusion of entities in the astral body. This flower essence clarifies the mental body and leads to greater vitality of the mental life, especially positive, clear thinking."

No wonder it helped me...!
Now I would like you to notice how I chose to title this article: My #1 Go-To Flower Essence to Ease Psychic Fright...
...rather than calling it the flower essence for Psychic Protection.
Why? Because I know that I am always protected. I am just not always in alignment with that truth. That is when I am most likely to feel fear. That's why I felt fear during those years of uninvited spirit experiences. And because I wasn't in alignment and didn't know how to set the proper boundaries with spirit I was attracting less than desirable spirits into my energy field. Not the "Oh we're going to GET YOU" kind of spirits but rather the kind of spirits that didn't possess the proper boundaries because they knew that I didn't either.
You know how things work in the physical world? Same thing with the spirit world. Like attracts like.
Taking the Mountain Pennyroyal helped to raise my vibration bringing me back into alignment with my higher self by dispelling negative (insert fearful here) thoughts, clearing my aura of the unhealthy (insert spirits with no boundaries) and disrespectful (insert no boundaries again!) energies that I was attracting at the time. It helped me to quickly overcome my, what I call, psychic fright.
So... if you are having difficult spirit experiences, such as the ones that I am describing above, give Mountain Pennyroyal a try. You might just find it very helpful.
Better yet, if you are having these kinds of experiences and are on the fence about it all, consider saying yes to your gifts and learning how to safely develop them, integrate them and use them for your highest and best good.
Let me know how it goes for you!
