Vibrational essence of Cypress Tree solarised in well water from the Monastery of Zerpitsa in Sparta, Greece.
This essence is for those who want to let go of stagnant energy and seek guidance through the unknown. Cypress offers grounding and direction during transitional times.
Affirmation: "I roam through the unknown with clarity and grace. I let go of what no longer serves me so I may transform and transcend into the path that is meant for me".
Folklore: In Greek mythology, Cypress is associated with the Goddess Hecate, a guardian of the crossroads, the night, magic, and ritual. Cypress is a tree symbolising death and the path to the underworld, which is why it is common to see this plant in cemeteries. After passing through, spirits would meet Hecate at the crossroads, where she would light a lantern and guide them along the path of Hades' underworld.
Hecate led Demeter (Dimitra) through the underworld in search for her daughter Persephone. Once she was found, Hecate remained in the underworld as Persephone's companion and guide for wandering spirits and those curious to delve within the shadows of that which is unseen.
