Doctrine of Signatures
Like the Flower of Confidence, Aechmea nudicaulis, this flower has a bold appearance but is made up of very few leaves. Plants like this are stripped back to the bare essentials and live minimalist lives for survival reasons.
As the Bromeliads have evolved from the grass family, this particular Aechmea has little evolved from the simple structure of its ancestors. The simplicity of its form and the complexity of its appearance contrast with one another and points to the key signature – the ability to simplify the complex. This is a clue to simply your life in order to make progress. This is a healthy form of regression. However, watch out for the unhealthy forms of regression such as self destructive tendencies that destroy the progress you have made.
As an aside, like most Aechmea’s, the flower bract is stunning in flower and long lasting. Another signature pointing to long lasting feelings that need releasing.
