Flower Essence Description

Cane Cholla Cactus helps us leap to a new perspective when we struggle with an issue and insist upon defining it in such a way as to block its resolution.

Harmonizing Qualities

  • resolution through letting go of your present attitude and approach to a problem, allowing a “leap” to a new point of view
  • releasing struggle which creates resistance
  • allowing an expansion of your mind and an attitudinal shift which can embrace an apparent duality, bringing greater integration within yourself
  • able to joyfully be with others without defensiveness or pretension

Patterns of Imbalance

  • struggling with an issue with much effort, but no resolution
  • an impasse in achieving understanding or a solution to a problem
  • empowering a problem through your insistence to define the problem in a certain way which is blocking other ways of perceiving and resolving it
  • maintaining too rigid an attitude or perspective about a situation
  • defensiveness or pretension in your relationships with others
