|Holly Flower Essence:Positive
Feeling love and extending love to others; universal compassion, open heart.
Patterns of imbalance:
Feeling cut off from love; jealousy, envy, suspicion, anger.
Above all else, the soul seeks in its evolution to experience real love. This is the most fundamental lesson
for the soul, and at the same time the most challenging. Holly flower essence is therefore a foundational remedy
with many broad-based applications, for it restores the soul's ability to feel unity and wholeness.
When we feel separate from others, we can take no joy or compassionate interest in their affairs; instead our
isolation is compounded into negative states of jealousy, envy, suspicion or anger. The soul grasps for its
share of love as though it were a limited commodity, rather than realizing that love is an infinite resource
which is divinely available to all.
Holly flower essence nourishes the heart, helping the individual to make and sustain the shift from a limited
and narrow conception of the Self, to one which is expansive and inclusive of others. In this way, the soul
experiences wholeness or 'holiness', for it feels permeated with divine love. This sense of sacred unity is
the very special gift and teaching of Holly flower essence.
