Base Regulator is a very powerful essence with several layers of activity. There is a profound effect on the pelvic centres as well as on the crown chakra. It establishes a countercurrent in the pelvis, reining in excess sexual energies. Base Regulator also has a powerful effect on the liver in reducing heat in the organ, thereby reducing hyper-glycaemia.
This essence is very useful if the person has too powerful a sex drive. The effect on one person was a strong and clear damping-down of his excessive sexual drive to a healthy level, one which was no longer tormenting. He described the reduction in libido as dramatic, painless and gratefully experienced. For one woman there was an immediate cessation of her period and the associated painful symptoms.
There is a shift of energy from the pelvic region to higher centres, experienced as a rapid expansion of consciousness radiating out (mainly ‘sideways’) from the head in all directions, just as the blooms themselves are seen facing every direction. This physical aspect of the orchid is worth noting and reflecting on. Whereas Necklace of Beauty and Pushing Back the Night (both are related orchids to this one) present their multiple blooms in roughly a 120 degree spread, Bulbophyllum gracillimum presents its multiple blooms facing 360 degrees.
As excess yang sexual energy is reined in, one experiences a beautiful and deep delicacy of one’s relationship to one’s sexuaity. At the same time there is a strengthening of one’s higher spiritual connection within the framework of the greatly expanded consciousness.
