Flower Essence Description

Desert Holly helps us live in a heart-centered state, opening easily to love rather than working at it. It is excellent for those who feel stifled by smothering love or for those who live from their heads rather than from their hearts.

Harmonizing Qualities

  • heart centered
  • experiencing love as its true nature, not as a conditioned or obligated state
  • moving from the head to the heart
  • living unconditional love
  • allowing grace to remove heart blockages rather than pushing or “working” at it

Patterns of Imbalance

  • feeling stifled by smothering love
  • running away from participation with others
  • fear of being unloving
  • living from the head rather than the heart
