|Pine Flower Essence:Positive
Self-acceptance, self-forgiveness; freedom from inappropriate guilt and blame.
Patterns of imbalance:
Guilt, self-blame, self-criticism, inability to accept oneself.
Objective knowledge of one’s faults is an important soul virtue; when taken to an extreme, however, one
can be wracked with undue guilt and misery. Those who need Pine flower essence get stuck in
At times a real circumstance form the past may result in deep feelings of regret and remorse; however
the Pine type often feels guilt which is entirely disproportionate to the actual events. These feelings may arise
from childhoods, when the person learned to internalize blame for dysfunction in the family system, or they may
stem from a religious background which emphasizes sin and error more than salvation and grace.
Pine flower essence helps
the Self to learn true forgiveness by quite literally being for giving: learning to release rather than
retain energy. The individual is encouraged to move forward rather than stay entangled in self-deprecation and
emotional paralysis. At its highest level, Pine flower essence teaches self-acceptance and inner esteem as a
pathway to the soul’s
realization of its own sacredness and divinity.
