Scorpion Weed

Essence Type: Individual Flower Essence

Flower Essence Description

The strength of innocence and direct confrontation overcomes fear and paralysis. Scorpion Weed helps us with many types of fears: of the consequences of our actions; of our past mistakes; of not being forgiven. It is especially useful when we externalize our fears or when we create monsters out of them.

Harmonizing Qualities

  • trust in your essential goodness and light
  • self-forgiveness and release from the past
  • helps you calmly face your fears, looking at them realistically so that they become emotionally manageable
  • realization that there are no absolute mistakes or failures, only experiences from which we can learn and grow

Patterns of Imbalance

  • fear or panic
  • imaginative magnification of your fears
  • creation of an externalization of your inner fears
  • fear of the consequences of your actions
  • fear of making a mistake or of repeating the mistakes of the past
  • fear of not being forgiven, that your errors are irrevocable
  • belief in a negative or evil self which may manifest at any time
  • self-guilt
  • fear of loss of love
  • creating “monsters” out of your fears
