Be calm, relaxed, and rooted in your foundation. Know that you are fully supported. You don’t have to try so hard. From this knowing springs forth a sense of inner courage. This plant gave me a vision of a Native American woman with Red-flowering Currant in her hand. She held the red blossoms over a baby’s lower back with loving care.
It is such a delight to witness pretty red flowers blooming on the Red-flowering Currant bush or small tree. They are very sweet to behold. The flower’s red color signifies its medicine for the blood and our life-force energy and the root chakra which grounds our emotions. Its presence is always helpful when we are trying too hard. Its calming nature helps us relax and feel at peace—a perfect natural antidote to stress.
Red-flowering Currant is one of the best flower essences for quickly calming our energy, fear, and helping us feel more supported in life. The essence grounds our kidneys, where we hold fear, and instills greater courage to our heart. It’s a helpful flower essence to take when we are feeling financially challenged or lack a sense of security. These concerns may relate to lower back issues. Like a base of support, this flower provides a greater sense of inner-security. Everything is going to be alright.
Over the years, this flower essence has come up repeatedly for working with baby spirits either to heal them, release them, or communicate with them. Whether it is a baby spirit getting ready for conception or birth, baby spirits that were released through pregnancy termination or other means, or a spirit of a baby that needs to move on, Red-flowering Currant helps babies and their parents (or would-be parents) find greater peace through healing and closure.
Placing drops of this essence on the palms of the hands and rubbing it into the sacrum or kidney area can help release emotional and body patterns from the root chakra.
“I’m your base of support
when you are flying too high
or off on a tangent
you can come back in touch
We need touch-stones
to secure our place
in the world—a place
to come back to
I am yours—your home
away from home
Your sense of security
held deep in the sacrum
Our secure foundation for
I’ll be your comfort
I’ll be your support
I Love you”

• Richard said, “I was feeling really stressed.” After he used the flower essence, he said, “I felt like the pressure was taken off me.”
• I could tell Doris was stressed out and needed Red-flowering Currant. “At this point, I definitely feel out there on a limb by myself and don’t yet know how to find, or allow to come to me, the right resources.” Doris felt like she was trying too hard to make things happen in her career and financial life.
• “I told Camilla that I was feeling isolated and lonely when I drove in my car. She placed the wildflower card [Sacred Spirit Deck] on my dashboard and gave me some Red-flowering Currant flower essence. The message ‘I am supported’ written on the card and transmitted to me through the essence changed my experience of driving. I now feel happy in my car! I also use it in my practice to help clients open to seek and receive support in their lives from Spirit, Nature, and people,” Katie S. wrote.
