The following blog post is an excerpt from our mastery school course
You are the infinitely unfolding rose
The rose is a symbol for the infinite layers of the self. It is a powerful gateway to the secrets of the heart and soul, mysteries just waiting for you to meditate upon them to gain access. The rose is an example of the reflections of the creator made in the perfection of the creation, and therefore a powerful reminder of you as perfect, whole and complete already. For this reason we are working with the rose as an ally to support your journey. It is a scent to be worn and smelled which brings so much comfort and yumminess to your senses. As a rose water it can be sprayed to wash your face. As a food it nourishes our digestion system so we can have more strength to digest life, and it makes a delicious ice cream. Spiritually it can connect you to depths of your being that you never knew were there because there were too many layers of old story. There is a reason the saying says to stop and smell the roses. It will bring you home to the power of the now moment, and the infinite love that is here for you once you can receive it.
The Mary’s & the Rose
The rose has been associated with Mother Mary for thousands of years as a symbol of purity and the power of the divine mother. It is a symbol of ever-unfolding consciousness and love, a literal blooming open of the heart chakra. The rose is also associated with Venus and all other incarnations of the divine feminine Christ consciousness. The rosebud looks like a vulva and has been a vital part of sacred women’s mystery teachings and initiatory rites of passage for young ladies. Since Mary Magdalene is also a Mary, a name that is a title for initiated priestesses of very high order, she too is associated with the rose as the symbolism of the divine feminine on physical and spiritual levels. Mary comes from the root word Mar or Mer, which means the sea. In the original biblical texts from the Book of Kings God/Yaweh had a wife, the female warrior goddess divine principle, named Asherah or the Lady of the Sea, which many think to be a reference to the sea of stars above.
The Frequency of Rose
Rose has the highest vibrational frequency of all the flowers at 320 Hz! Rose has been used globally in healing tradition sciences like Ayurveda, Chinese Medicine, and the alchemical healing traditions of Egypt and Europe too.
In Islam, the fragrance of a rose is said to emulate the sacredness of the soul. When you smell a rose in the air but there is no physical rose nearby, it is said that these are transmissions from the divine to relay holy messages.
In Catholicism, the scent of roses is often called the “odor of sanctity” because it indicates the presence of spiritual holiness. People have reported smelling the fragrance of roses after praying to saints in heaven to intercede for them with God about something.
Roses appear in accounts from all of the world’s major religions as a symbol of miraculous love at work in the world. In ancient mythology, roses symbolized eternal love in stories of how gods interacted with each other and human beings. Pagans use roses as decorations to represent their hearts. Muslims view roses as symbols of the human soul, so smelling the scent of roses reminds them of their spirituality. Hindus and Buddhists see roses and other flowers as expressions of spiritual joy. Christians view roses as reminders of the Garden of Eden, the paradise codes.
Rose Essential Oil for health, beauty, food and sacred self-care
Physically, rose has many benefits for our bodies. It can help aide digestion, counter a rash or inflammation, and is a powerful beauty aide for the skin to heal scars and provide a radiant glow. The very scent of it can affect our nervous system powerfully! Rose cools a temper and eases anxiety or grief. This is why rose essential oil is highly suggested as an ally for this course. Since a clean rose essential oil can be hard to find at an affordable price, I highly recommend the organic Rose Otto essential oil by Plant Therapy, which can be found here on Amazon. It is organic, chemical free, and diluted with sesame oil so it is only $20 for a 5 mL bottle. A little goes a long way, and I use it on my face, as an anointing perfume, and to make my favorite healing rose cream chocolate formula for my organic, raw vegan craft chocolate company, Integrity Cacao.
Mystical Teachings of the Rose
The mystery schools associated with the rose are a fascinating global journey into the sacred mysteries of life, the divine feminine, mysticism, the soul and love. Indeed when you begin to explore the rose as an initiation into the feminine mysteries you will take a historical journey all over the world from France, to Persia and beyond. The rose is found literally all over the world in art, alchemy, architecture, myth and poetry. The ancient world had a mystical understanding of the divine feminine that we are now coming back to. This is a journey home where we integrate ancient wisdom with our future.
From Sandy Humby, the Rose Oracle https://www.rosealchemy.com/ :
“For many drawn to the Rose path there is an immediate felt familiarity as the work was lived and shared in the Temples of Atlantis and Egypt. The Brothers and Sisters of the Rose have carried this knowledge through the eons knowing that when the time was right the Rosa Mystica would be called forward again to open Hearts and bring balance, harmony and healing to the Sacred weave of Masculine / Feminine and uplift humanity. As above so below As within so without. It is time…”
