('Hibiscus' bottle shown - All bottles have similar design) Profile GoldenrodPositive qualities:
Well-developed individuality, inner sense of Self balanced with group or social consciousness.
Patterns of imbalance:
Easily influenced by group or family ties; inability to be true to oneself, subject to peer pressure or social expectations.

Our earliest sense of Self unfolds within the context of others-parents, extended family, and community. Gradually, through a healthy maturation process, the soul acquires a clear sense of individuality.

Some souls do not successfully complete this individuation process, remaining too subject to group more and family ties. These souls need to establish their own inner values and beliefs, otherwise their inherent weakness is easily exploited. They tend to be adversely influenced by social pressures and conventions, conforming their behavior to social norms in order to win approval and acceptance.

In some situations such souls will also display antisocial or obnoxious behavior as an extreme measure to acquire a self-image-this is especially true during adolescence.

Goldenrod flower essence helps such persons to find a true relationship to the Higher Self. It encourages vertical or individuated axis to counterbalance the overly broad, horizontal social axis, which influences the personality too strongly. In this way the sol acquires greater strength and inner conviction, learning to successfully balance the polarities of Self and Others.

- from the 'Flower Essence Repertory', by Patricia Kaminsky and Richard Katz. The most comprehensive and user-friendly flower essence book we've found. Highly recommended for any practitioner.
