The Lily of the Valley that grows in the front garden of my brothers’ house was virtually decimated by a friend who was gardening for him. It was an unintentional action, the plant was dormant at the time, and gradually the plant has gained in strength and is once again prolific and strong.
Another interesting thing is that the documentation about the making of the essence has disappeared and so I must ‘trust’ to my memory of the experience and there is no date or time reference.
The Lily of the Valley has small, white, delicate, bell like flowers that grow along a thin stem with many blooms along each one. The leaves appear strong and are very large in relationship to the flowers. This is a good metaphor for some of the qualities that we associate with Trust. Trust is strong yet delicate, grows when cared for and doesn’t need a lot of attention, but can be eradicated by ones destructive actions, and then it takes time before becoming strong once more.
