Pushpavati Ayurveda

Conscious Living ~ Lifestyle Choices and Routines
Ayurveda, sister to Yoga, brings us the gifts of our earth in all her wisdom, and shines through us when we embrace the luminescence of our universe. Born in India thousands of years ago, and founded upon sacred texts, Ayurveda is nevertheless a global health system in resurgence because its concepts are universal. This manifest world is composed of the five elements - Ether, Air, Fire, Water and Earth - and when we once more recognize how they reveal themselves in our bodies, foods, environment and actions through certain qualities or attributes, then our path to health is only a foot-step away. We soon realize that everything we take in - from impressions to food to the company we keep - has an impact upon our well-being on all levels. When we remember what we already know, the truth of self-healing becomes clear and this light leads us forward. 
How we breathe, think, listen (sound), move and eat - all of which are addressed through Ayurveda - powerfully impacts our subtle bodies as well as our physical ones. The nuances of Ayurveda can be further revealed through the ethereal purity of Flower Essences. From spirituality to cosmology to the material, we are uplifted through the delicate wisdom of the flowers, and we open to the miracles of spirit, flora and fauna of the universe just as the petals of a flower open to the mysterious field of Akash (Ether).
“The Universe is a communion of subjects, not a collection of objects.”

Flower Essences

Awakening and Inspiring
Shifts in awareness, lifting of spirits, welcoming arms, loving embrace, boundless bliss ... these are all sensations we may receive from the etheric wisdom of flower essences. Flower essences share the energetic patterns of mental, emotional and spiritual balance; each one unique in its essential nature. And by offering us these maps, flower essences show our own body wisdom how to see once again the path of truth that we temporarily stepped away from. Then, as we come into alignment energetically, our cells take up the infusion of remembering how to self-heal. In material form, flowers bring joy as our eyes behold their beauty, our nose may inhale their aromatic splendor, our skin luxuriates in the softness of their petals, and some even nourish with a sweet taste. Their power is no less potent, rather more however, when we accept into all levels of our being the flowers’ deep, true vibrational essence.
Flower Essences can help support us through Ayurveda’s opportunities for change smoothly and with less effort. The essences of the flowers guide us gently, like dear friends who desire our well-being, for when we are healed, our entire collective is healed, and we may realize universal transformation.
Silently a flower blooms, in silence it falls away.
Yet here now, at this moment, at this place,
The world of the flower, the whole of the world is blooming.
This is the talk of the flower, the truth of the blossom:
The glory of eternal life is fully shining
~ Zenkei Shibayama

The essence of a flower is carried within the memory of water by the sunlight (or moonlight) transmission of its prana (vital force). This co-creation process allows us to receive the gifts of flower healing even without the presence of the physical flower; an amazing gift that is transforming our world as we can share a flower's healing energies across the planet, and, in a healthy, sustainable balance with Mother Earth.

“There is more to the power of light than meets our outer vision. 
Today scientific outbreaks have experienced the power behind a beam of light -- 
its mere pressure or force can move, bend or direct liquid. 
Waters carry the sacred soma, 
and light passing through water manifests as the highest blessing. 
Flowing rivers and sacred waters of mountain lakes reflect these wonders of beatitude.” 
~ Shambhavi
