Flower Essence Description

Powerful energy is released as repressed feelings of inadequacy and inferiority are unlocked. Helps us accept our shadow side so that it becomes a source of strength and confidence.

Harmonizing Qualities

  • the shadow side becomes a source of strength and confidence
  • unconditional acceptance of others
  • unlocking deep strength as a result of releasing and expressing
  • strength, determination and deep energy reserves to move ahead in life
  • similar to Saguaro Cactus, yet the strength is more from a powerful accessing of the inner feminine

Patterns of Imbalance

  • struggles with the dark side of yourself, trying to run away from it or deny it
  • seeing the dark-side in someone else and thinking it is the essential nature of that person
  • repression
  • feeling inadequate, deep shame, inferior, deficient
  • “I can’t make it”
