If you know the name of the essence you are
seeking, you can skip to sections by first letter in the name using
the linked letters below:
For cleansing oneself
from negative influences in one's environment or a build-up
over time of such influences within oneself. This essence
helps a person to be amongst the different aspects of life
and maintain inner sanctity by continual internal focus, alertness
and not compromising the treasures of Life. For the
person easily dazzled by external attractions and frivolous
enjoyments, being influenced to the detriment of their overall
welfare. For those who leave themselves too open to
influences. For those who feel a sense of frustration
and helplessness with their situation and feel increasingly
unable to manage what they have got themselves into.
For a person who feels weighed down by, and find themselves
absorbing, a build-up of psychic "junk" from the atmosphere
or people in an environment they spend time in.
For the maturing of
the male principle or the man within. For both men and women the
promoting of positive creativity that also nurtures an awareness
of the needs of the environment while achieving goals. Helpful
in balancing achievement with life sustaining qualities such as
caring and community/family spirit. Within us the creative force
blends with the receptive force. If we are to become whole, then
the two must be at one. Our creative force expresses the power
to protect and love the created Universe and to be fearless on
our journey forward. The aboriginal people see the Balga
and its flower as the warrior standing with his spear watching
over the tribe.
is used for women and men who find it hard to be forthright
and assertive, or whose assertiveness is aggressive and overpowering.
Both these indicate a lack of maturity and full development
of the masculine strength within. Commonly used for young
boys and girls and adolescents who cannot integrate their new
sexuality (the assertive/masculinity) into their being and are
either lacking in their masculine strength or are out of balance,
with the negative, dangerous and destructive side predominant.
Used also for the person who cannot tap into their creativity,
their ability to go into new territory and explore original
and new horizons.
The essence of forgiveness
and love. To bring back the light and re-sensitize after resentment
and heavy emotional traumas one can't seem to forget. Helpful
in relationship break-ups and grief/anger obsessive cycles. Also
for issues of "control" as with parents or other authority figures,
which then get re-enacted in later life. Some of the hardest lessons
we learn are the ones confronting us because of betrayal by a
person we care about or are vulnerable to. It is a test of our
ability to keep the greater vision of the purpose and higher goals
of our Soul while facing the events our personality is grappling
with. To bring in the Light and allow our Soul to lead the way
heals the personality and reasserts our direction, freeing us
from the darkness of negativity and hurtful deeds.
To strengthen the Will
and take back control of the Self. To realize the beauty
of inner focus and consistency in establishing a fulfilling life.
For those who feel too easily swayed and distracted because of
lack of direction and purpose. Helpful in bringing new beginnings
by breaking the hold of old patterns of behaviour that are deteriorating
the quality of life. For breaking the spell of habitual
patterns of behaviour. Used also for breaking the hold of
substance addiction. Habits are like old arm chairs, lumpy
but familiar, and the person has to fight against their own old
programming to be able to change to healthy new directions and
experiences. This essence is helpful in inspiring changes
by breaking the hold of old patterns of behaviour that deteriorate
the quality of life. Any expansion of consciousness is brought
about by effort. This effort requires focus, direction and
forward movement. Old habits imprison us and impede our
progress. They have power because they give a false sense
of security. To have free will is to break through the feelings
of unwillingness to give up old ways and be spontaneously working
with Life. Where the person has become habituated in patterns
of living and behaviour that hamper development, happiness or
relationships with others. This essence helps the metamorphosing
of the mind to its new pathways by being positive about self control,
discipline and direction. For children who have become set
in routine patterns for example: waking during the night, crying
or being destructive to get attention, immediately reacting when
not getting their own way. For people battling addictions
or obsessive behaviour patterns—especially useful in combination
with Green Rose.
The essence that inspires
generosity and the openness to share what we have with others
on all levels. The opening of a window in the Soul that
reveals the basic needs of fellow beings and then rekindles the
desire to give with grace and benevolence. Also helps to
de-energise an unhealthy need to have and keep hold of material
possessions. The spirit of sharing, and finding happiness
in seeing the enjoyment of others, leads to a greater sense of
the joys of togetherness and oneness. For people who try
to avoid having to give of themselves or be generous. Often
they are puzzled as to why other people don’t have loving
feelings for them. For others relating to these people it
seems that the person is always suspicious of motives and wondering
what someone wants from them. When people get annoyed or
start to reject them the unhelpful person will seem to not understand
why people are reacting to them in this way. This
essence is also for the person who is too involved with the fleeting
pleasures of material objects, hoarding, hiding and holding onto
what they have. This is really a very sad state of being
and brings no joy at all. For the person who is too involved
with the fleeting pleasures of material objects, hoarding, hiding
and holding onto what they have. This is really a very sad
state of being and brings no joy at all. For those with
petty attitudes concerning what they own.
To encourage respect
and appreciation of people and their intrinsic value. For when
criticism needs to be transformed into acceptance of others, their
individual and differing expressions. Helpful for bridging communication
and mutual respect problems in relationships. Our expanding
consciousness can make the mind strong and able to make clear
discernments. However when relating to people a basic respect
for each Soul and its journey is a solid premise for positive
exchanges. Being able to do mental gymnastics is not a sign
of expanded consciousness, just as not being intellectually eloquent
is not a sign that a person hasn’t developed their mind
or their spiritual being. Arrogance can lead to spiritual
inertia, if we believe we are better than anyone else we live
in a self-made illusion. Helpful for bridging communication
and mutual respect problems in relationships. For feelings
of intellectual superiority. To deal with the mind that
is used to dissect people and their ideas and find flaws, rather
than keeping a positive outlook which discriminates and weighs
ideas up without a negative slant. Also for the mentality
that makes hasty judgments of people as fools, or weak-minded
because the person is not able to "cross swords" as an equal to
inspire the realization that the journey of life will bring
solutions, one needs patience and acceptance of the "here and
now." For those who are worried and therefore will miss out
on joy. Helpful in relieving stress and sleeplessness
caused by worry. One of the illusions of life is that
only by doing something can a problem be solved, we are sure
we must think or work harder or faster to get relief . Very
often a problem is an opportunity to understand something on
a deeper level. By absorbing the lessons of a problem and reflecting
on what our reactions tell us about ourselves, we can make great
progress and ensure the same problems/lessons don’t continually
recur in our lives. Oral doses used to release the mind gripped
by morbid, anxious, or unpleasant thoughts. Such thoughts can
be part of depressed emotional states and mental confusion.
Increases in chaotic environment. Topical application
to ear acupoints for tinnitus.
This essence helps the
person to switch on their light again, that is, to see they must
reach out to the beauty around them and inside of them to feel
that it is good to be alive. Whatever the past pain has been,
or how long a person has been hurting and struggling to go on,
positive life experiences wait for them on the horizon. The renewal
of hope and optimism, when we are in touch with our inner Light,
is always rewarded. It is a brave and perhaps naive person who
thinks they can understand the meaning behind all the tragedies
that befall a person. The Soul has been on a long journey going
through so many transformations on its way home. In reaching out
to the Light, to the Love that is embedded in every part of the
Universe the Soul is refreshed and radiates beauty into their
life. Used for those who feel like giving up on life, giving up
the fight for survival because of past painful experiences. The
person has often battled on in spite of all the burdens of their
memories and now feels that life cannot be worthwhile or fulfilling.
The person may be perfectly justified for the way they feel because
of the realities of their life but the grim attitude of the hopelessness
they embrace is a suffering they are adding to their situation.
For a person unable to come to terms with an incident that makes
them feel life is not worth living.
An essence enhancing
inner renewal and freeing oneself from old baggage that has no
part to play in a happy life. For dealing with issues of the past
which leave a bitter taste. To re-experience the joy of making
the most of possibilities in present and future relationships.
One of the signposts of progress on the way to enlightenment is
our ability to not get waylaid and caught by the belligerence
or callousness of others. If we do not heal ourselves and
want to hold on to the pain and exact revenge we completely lose
our way and the whole purpose of our Path. If we do get caught
in wanting and eye for an eye, the quicker we realise how we got
into that situation and learn, the easier we will get out and
not go into a destructive state of bitterness. We then free ourselves
of the past and its effects. This is as equally true in a society
as it is in an individual. For those who are negative and
jealous of the happiness of others because their own desires and
wishes have been thwarted. For those who resent other people’s
happiness because they feel it is unfair that they haven’t
been that lucky. For people who have old anger and negativity
that has not been resolved. People become cynical and then
are unable to attract joy into their lives. A situation from the
past may or may not be still affecting their external reality
of the present, but the person can’t release their bitterness
and so they affect their present relationships with people badly.
This can often cause more bitterness and so it goes on if unhealed.
To encourage expressing the hurt
one feels, so that others may better realise your situation
and respond. To release the pent up gut feelings and face what
is really happening. This frees one from both expectation of
fairness and the situation of being used by others. Helpful
for equalising one-sided relationships and bringing reality
to obligatory relationships
Negative Keywords disregarded due
to not being straight forward in expressing ones feelings when
hurt , hurt due not being straight forward when taken for granted
by others, introverted due to not being straight forward in
expressing ones feelings when hurt, suppressed due to not being
straight forward in expressing ones feelings when hurt
This essence helps settle
the person, bringing inner contentment that enhances the enjoyment
of the family or group. The person can then fulfill their responsibilities
and reap the rewards of consistency and shared goals. For
issues of responsibility in family and group life where duties
and everyday pressure is causing an individual to become distant
and avoid their share of the load. This affects the whole
group as they must carry the extra burden, and problems of resentment
soon arise. Selflessness is a cherished development in our
spiritual life. When we stop consciously fueling our selfish
desires new pathways to happiness open up, and our environment
and the people in it reflect joy. For those only focused
on their own desires and who become uncaring. For a family
member who is suddenly feeling trapped by the realities of their
life. Like in the case of a couple with young children,
especially the first child. The person is enjoying being
in a family, but would like to have their cake and eat it too.
They wish to have the joy and comfort of home life and the freedom
of single life. The reality is that you can do that as long
as you keep baking more cakes—you have to put more effort
in to make sure that no one is suffering by you pursuing some
private goal. Usually these times of panic are phases of
a maturing process and the individual learns to integrate the
different aspects of their real needs responsibly into their life.
To inspire feelings
of positivity and self esteem. Being able to learn from mistakes
with acceptance and without blame or regret. From inner acceptance,
to focus, to success. Helpful for overcoming negative self concepts
with ensuing phases of stagnation or depression. For a person
who lacks confidence, keeps themselves in an inferior position
and doesn’t try to improve. They feel they are useless or
not good enough and so perpetuate their situation. For those
with an inferiority complex who dump on themselves. For
those lacking confidence. Very often this essence is used in cases
where a person has not been encouraged as a child and doesn’t
have a good self image. Also in cases where people’s experiences
in relationships always left them feeling they were not good enough
for the other person.
essence of recovery from trauma. To help rebuild and re-thread
the subtle and physical bodies after a shattering experience,
mentally and/or physically, thereby energizing them. To integrate
such experiences into one's understanding and perspective on
Life in a wise way and move forward with renewed vigor.
Used in cases where a person has experienced a sudden reversal
of fortune. The person has often not made provision for such
events, and is therefore not prepared mentally to adapt and
deal with the situation. Such people find it hard to rebuild
their life and feel hopeless, becoming a victim of circumstance.
essence helps resolve problems of over-competitiveness and brings
a person into a space where they are free to interact with others
as an equal. The Self then comes from a deeper aspect where
it can feel joy for another's successes without feeling inferior
or unattended. For issues of needing recognition and acceptance
from others. For those who tend to demand attention, respect
and recognition. For a person who is craving acknowledgement
and becomes negative when people don’t respond on cue.
Such people need to be constantly told what a good job they
have done, or how good they are. Mixed in with this are flashes
of superiority complex, over estimation of self-importance and
a dismissing of people as underlings. Phases of all these
traits are common in childhood, especially where parents have
tended to placate the child and not deal with the negative behaviour.
The demands then continue to rise to new levels. The healing
brings a quieting of the mind, which can feel self assurance
and inner contentment.
essence of letting go and allowing life to flow. For issues
of holding on. Helpful in times of change, grief and reconciliation
for the person to allow the old day to go and the new day to
be embraced with flexibility. For problems of general
stress, inflexibility, not being able to adapt to new situations,
stress and tension through wanting things a certain way and
no other. For parting trauma such as grief, separation,
divorce. Used for hard, tight muscles, cramps and spasms used
directly on area. Used direct to back of neck and shoulders
to relieve headaches caused by tension in these areas. Applied
to lower abdomen to relieve constipation, oral doses for chronic
problem. Is part of the formula for flower essence Pain
essence to invoke Life affirming positivity, to release thoughts
about being wronged in the past. To find detachment and be at
peace within oneself and not be reacting from vengeful emotions.
To find release in the realization that one has a choice in
how to respond to events, and that to harbour blame hardens
the heart. To find mellowness of being and take responsibility
for a better tomorrow. For those who can’t get rid
of the "chip on their shoulder" and hold on to feelings of revenge
against those who have wronged them. For those who cannot
have trust in new relationships because of their experiences
in the past. For those who believe there is satisfaction
in revenge. The vengeful, jilted lover. For people
who have taken vengeful actions against a person they love and
now are sickened by it. They now regret they have hurt someone
they cared for and feel that Life has set them up to have pain.
For those who blame Life and other people for their misfortunes.
This leads to cutting off from sensitivity and openness. The
healing brings a realization that we are responsible for our
actions and reactions to Life. That there is a benevolent basis
to Life with which we must work to achieve happiness, healing
ourselves of past pains. We can then walk away from the thoughts
of being wronged and/or the people who have wronged us and start
living positively, with an open heart, for today.
This essence stimulates
love and focus out towards others, and one becomes happy by giving.
For loss of balanced perspective leading to introversion, being
demanding and over concentrated on oneself and what you have or
have not got. For those who use the emotions to manipulate
situations and people so their wants can be satisfied. For
problems of greed, thirst for acquisition. For people who
become brooding, revengeful and manipulative to create a pressure
to get what they want. They want Life to run around them, and
react badly when friends and family get sick of their ways and
let them know it. For demanding children who create tantrums
to wear down their parents, and have their wants met. For people
who feel they can only get love by applying pressure and manipulating
For the mind to embrace
benevolence and good intentions. This essence frees the
conscience, which then naturally brings the mind back to balanced,
healthy pursuits. For those who find themselves caught in
unhealthy curiosity about the affairs of others, who feel powerful
with personal information and can’t resist using it for
their own ends. For those focused on petty things about others
and cause damage by loose talk. They like the control they
have when privy to personal information. This makes such people
very unpopular and causes complicated emotional situations. In
extreme cases they are very smug and feel superior because they
can be the cause of such havoc through having such control over
people’s lives. Often these people come for healing because
of rejection or hatred from others, be it in the school yard or
the boardroom. For those who enjoy controlling others, manipulating
behind the scenes.
To find the freedom
of truthfully showing one's true thoughts and intentions. To be
able to think, say, and be as one whole person without hiding
any underlying negativity or to fall into hypocrisy. Used
for character traits of two faced behaviour, where such people
harbour negativity but show nothing of this towards those they
dislike. Being able to trick people in this way leads to added
attitudes of thinking other people are stupid. If exposed such
people become more negative. For those who feel amused by
the misfortunes of others while pretending to be sympathetic.
They feel contemptuous towards those they see as fools. The healing
enables them to let go of their negative thought patterns and
see it as only fair that other people confront them and expect
more honesty and integrity. They then can be straightforward in
their dealings with people.

and anxiety that life is closing in and there are no solutions.
Frees the mind from the irrational adrenaline response and the
mind can then think clearly and calmly.
To strengthen oneself
so as not to be pressured against one's will, or be routinely
influenced by the desires of others who focus on you. Helpful
for dominant/submissive relationships and for adolescents succumbing
to peer group pressure. For people who are going against
what they suspect or know inside to be fair or true.
To help people learn to stand their ground and not compromise
themselves under coercion. To free a person who is bowing
to another’s will. Enhances, and brings up the inner
strength and assuredness, and one can feel content that they are
being their own person. Used in cases where the immune system
is weakened by sickness or drugs.
For finding the powers
of regeneration and metamorphosis within. The essence to care
for and heal oneself so one can bounce back after personal trauma
and unload the feelings of heaviness. For people who feel
weighed down by the murky areas of their Life and have lost the
ability to feel good about living. The such persons have often
been of a very giving nature, been highly traumatized, hurt and
battered by life, been taken for granted and abused, which leads
to them wanting to withdraw from people. Life becomes too hard
so they don’t want to interact with it any more. In extreme
cases, there is often a subconscious desire to no longer be on
this earth. The healing brings a person back in touch with
the goodness of Life and the positive aspects which can be so
joyous and fulfilling, regenerating hope and idealism.
the maturing of the female principle or woman within. For both
men and women a metamorphosis to inner strength, nurturing sensitivity
and loving wisdom that is not emotionally dependent. Helpful
in releasing the feminine aspect into society. For people
who are either unable to bring out their nurturing, compassionate
or patient side (underactive unbalanced feminine aspect) or
who tend to resort only to their emotions to deal with relationships
(overactive unbalanced feminine aspect). Also for issues
of mothering, such as using guilt to maintain control, not allowing
independence for those in one’s care, or the other extreme
of not being able to enjoy caring for and nurturing someone
who is vulnerable, and in need of help. First-time mothers
can be caught in such dilemmas and during pregnancy or early
days of motherhood feel totally alien to the new role before
them. Also for menstrual problems and hormonal imbalances.
The essence of opening
up and opening out. Feeling the dignity of coming forward
to your place in Life, regardless of being vulnerable to exposure.
To be at ease with yourself while being with other people and
not fear being open. Confidence for those who feel more
comfortable withdrawing from people than dealing with problems
or criticism. Enables one to detach from the tangled situations
and judgmental attitudes of others and instead feel free to join
in social situations. For children who don’t speak
much, or at all, whom others may label as shy, who can be withdrawing
from what they see as disturbing and confusing aspects of adults’
lives that they are part of. For those who seem shy, but are really
very wary of other people and of what can happen when allowing
someone into their world. For a person who feels unnecessarily
modest, feeling shame about the naturalness of their body.
For pretending to cope.
essence or re-igniting carefree feelings, to heal all aspects
of anxiety linked to perfectionism. Helpful for those who worry
about details, allowing the mind to become bright and inquisitive,
positive in outlook, and allows the mind to free itself from
the small, tight framework. For people who are continually
caught in over-attention to details—the perspective they
have increases a negative and hopeless state where problems
can never be solved because there is always another detail to
consider. For those caught in small details which can
create low energy states, depressed states, anxious states and
totally frustrated states of mind. When the person is freed
from the small perspective, problems can often dissolve because
it was the unnecessary focus that was making the problem in
the first place. For those needing to accept their present
imperfect state of health and wellbeing while convalescing from
illness or trauma, Golden Waitsia can be applied to the soles
of the feet every few hours. (no pressure needed to application,
simply wipe essence over entire sole of foot).
essence of making progress, of focusing ahead and using vigour
to accomplish a breakthrough. To enhance forward movement through
a problem, or phase of stagnation, without sudden leaps back
to square one. To be free of frustration, to avoid repetition
of mistakes. Helpful in maintaining disciplines and healthy
habits for body, mind, and spirit. For people who cannot
successfully complete a change they need to make. They seem
to do well but can make surprising reversals and be back where
they were in the beginning. This is due to the fact that a strong
part of their mind resents having to change, and would prefer
to stay the same, if only there were not consequences that were
unpleasant. Often the natural consequences are the natural reactions
from others, which can make these people negative and defensive
towards those around them. This projecting blame onto others
can then create within self righteous attitudes and give them
a reason to stay stubbornly the way they are. For those
who are battling addictions or addictive patterns of behaviour
and are frustrated that they always end up where they started.
Especially good in combination with Blue
China Orchid for breaking addictions and bad habits.
The art of timing and
decision making. The essence of patience in finding direction
in Life which leads to peaceful settling of the mind. This patience
allows time for the consolidation of experiences so one can make
decisions with greater wisdom and determination, and not be influenced
into erratic action driven by one’s own anxiety. For
the person anxiously facing choices they are not ready to make.
For those who are trying to keep many activities going because
they are unsure of which ones to focus on. For people anxious
about the choices in front of them. There are times when a they
have to make a decision or choices about their life but are not
in the position to do so wisely. It can be that they are young,
inexperienced, amidst other crises, or unable to see the wood
for the trees. With the enhancement of patience and a stilled
mind, the person can make interim decisions, waiting for the right
time, to read the flow of Life correctly and make their move.
Helpful to enhance the intuitive understanding of one’s
Life direction. Believing one cannot achieve, feelings of
being in a mess or devastated. Cannot see how things will work
The spirit of self assurance,
the realisation of self reliance and determination. To inspire
standing on one’s own feet, to be able to believe in and
achieve with one’s own strength. To believe in one’s
own ability to attract into the Self that which one needs. Helpful
for trepidation about striking out on a new path less travelled
by others, being able to let go of the need for a backup person
or simply fear of doing things alone. For people who find
it too challenging to do things by themselves. They feel more
comfortable when someone else is with them. For those who in one
area of their life do not feel confident enough to follow a new
path which the majority of people around them do not tread. For
people who do not have confidence in their ability to attract
a partner into their life and so do not project themselves in
a way that anyone can notice them. Also for those who are
not confident that they can attract a partner simply by being
themselves, and instead project bravado and try to use an over-assertive
or dominating approach. Looking for support from others,
failing in one’s own endeavours because there is no support
from others. Feeling let down. See also Purple
essence grounds excessive, scattered energy and re-establishes
a natural and healthy flow that feeds the needs of activity
without over stimulating. With this inner mental and physical
peace, the person feels back in control of their life and can
have balanced states of rest and activity. For those who can't
sleep or relax because of frenetic energy unbalancing them.
For hyperactive children and people who have been in fearful
or over-stimulated states for a long period of time and now
they can’t relax their body or mind when they need to.
When the etheric body is too highly strung, you find people
who are naturally tense and affected by the little inconsequential
happenings in their life. This over-stimulates their nervous
system and they find it hard to relax. They can often see no
cause as to why they are unable to switch off.
essence of knowing who you are, the sanctity of your inner being,
the strength to maintain your inner peace no matter where you
are, or what circumstances may be there to influence your judgment
about your Self. This essence acts as a filter and inner strengthener,
so that a person is not going up and down with the praise or
condemnation of others. Used for cases of stress resulting from
interactions with people. For those who feel keenly the
feelings of others. Also for those psychically sensitive, it
helps to relieve the burden of that sensitivity by engendering
a contentment generated by their own centre. Use with
Macrozamia for adolescence and menopause.
essence of valour to overcome painful memories hiding in the
subconscious. The essence of Joy and courage to face and deal
with past shadows and pain. To inspire the knowledge that there
is no hidden pain that can’t be dealt with, it is never
as bad as you fear, it will not overwhelm you, you are stronger
than it. For people who are living without being able
to feel Joy, there is hidden pain, like a dark cloud, casting
a shadow over them. Some past experience, which they consciously
remember or which lies in their subconscious, has not been healed.
To help people get through the healing of painful memories or
suppressed memory. For those who avoid dealing with current
situations, the suppressed cause being painful memories. Helpful
also in psychotherapy, rebirthing and past life therapy to uncover
forgotten or hidden experiences affecting the present state
essence of centralizing energy and focus, to ensure the maintenance
of wholeness. Stimulating the inner core of one’s being
to take control of Life situations. It helps one to withdraw
from peripheral concerns and focus on what is of primary importance.
The effect is to deepen understanding of what caring for and
helping a person can really mean, to know also when to stand
back for that person’s deeper welfare. Helpful for
feelings of depletion in those whose work or life is in the
service of others. For people who tend to "give themselves
away" and find they are exhausted in every way, and have to
get away from people to allow recuperation. Very often these
are care-givers in "people" jobs such as therapists, nurses,
teachers, parents, group organizers. The unbalanced response
comes from a lack of proper and considered perspective, although
coming from a benevolent desire to be of help. For benevolent
people suffering from "burnout."
The essence to restore
equilibrium to the Sex/water chakra. To free the mind from masculine
and feminine stereotypes and dogma. The union of Love between
the male and female. For healing and restoring the balance
to all aspects of female/male, Yin/Yang energy flows. To release
blockages to these primal and vital flows. Also helpful in physical
manifestations of these blockages such as restoring balance to
the water element in the body as this essence basically re-harmonizes
the sex/water chakra and related glands. Negative sexual
imbalance can come about due to many influences. Sexual
trauma or distasteful experiences from childhood, early teens,
or at any time in a person’s life. People may react
to the inner imbalance by focusing on sexuality out of proportion
to other needs of their being, or by continually attracting the
wrong sort of person to them, and thus perpetuate the negative
emphasis in their minds. Self esteem and being able to trust anyone
will suffer as a consequence. A different direction for the unbalanced
focus and negative development to take is brought about by the
effect of rejection of strong sexual advances, which leads to
cruel and dominating behaviour. For those who feel a sense
of worthlessness because they do not feel complete in themselves.
For those with sexual problems such as frigidity and impotency.
For those with sexual inhibitions, or who find it hard to be open
emotionally or sexually. Desire for isolation, aversion
to people. Confrontational, quick to respond in an aggressive
manner to anything that seems threatening.
This essence calms,
strengthens and inspires the person to face and deal with their
life and relationships so that stability and fulfillment come
together for them at last. With new found consistency, there is
a deepening and maturing in all aspects of Life. For those with
difficulties, such as panic and a need to run away when facing
responsibility in work or family life. For those with difficulties,
such as panic and a need to run away when facing responsibility
in relationships, work or family life or any area of life that
requires responsible actions. Used also where people have
irrational responses to commitment or being consistent in their
behaviour. Settles the mind and brings in a sense of the Joy and
interest in developing long-term relationships and goals. The
new consistency enables a greater fulfilment and an encouraging,
positive response from people.
This essence inspires
the realization that idealism about love is important, that being
loved is wonderful, it is eternally with us and sometimes also
given to us from the external world. For healing those who are
holding in sadness and great hurt, this is the essence of finding
higher love. The depths of love these people long for are
more surely found within the depths of themselves, where it can
never leave them. For those who have given love and have
not received the same. This can be a child without tenderness
from a parent, a parent without tenderness from a child or a lover
without tenderness from a partner. The person to whom affections
