Spruce – Fichte – Picea abies
The male principle comes in many different forms, some of them astounding, others a little strange. Today let us imagine a man, who has not just integrated all his experiences from childhood and adult life but truly understands them and their meaning. One, who is no longer interested in presenting his muscles all day long since he is self-assured. This man is a man without doubt, a strong and honest one, but one who is no longer involved in the games, the ego loves to play. He can step back and and help the young to achieve what he has achieved long time ago.

Why do people refuse to accept being helped?
Self-Heal – Prunella vulgaris
Self-Heal has always been a herbal remedy used for health purposes although it has been almost forgotten since modern medicine succeeded. Anyway this plant has her own aroma-oil and other healthy ingredients. The plant herself is rather small, becomes hardly taller than 20 cm, grows on meadows and flowers from May to October. Its flowers are somewhat between brown and violet. Its German name Braunelle reminds you of the colour „brown“. In former times a „brown throat“ was the name for what today is called „tonsillitis“. The tea made of Self-Heal was perscribed for gurgling in cases of throat inflammation. The plant made its way from Europe to America and was first used to prepare an essence by the Californian Flower Essence Society. They gave it the name „Self-Heal“, which tells us a lot about its essence‘s qualities. In Europe it has several other common names that all focus on its abilities to cure wounds. E.g. the German name „Zimmermannskraut“ means „carpenters‘ herb“. Carpenters used to use the plant to stop their injuries bleeding.

Hypersensitivity and flower essences
Do you know what a HSP is? A term that was introduced into psychology in the mid-90s by the American psychologist Elaine N. Aron. HSP means „highly sensitive person“. This refers to those people whose nervous system is overactive, which are extremely sensitive and responding even to the finest stimuli. What brings them a lot of stress. Quite normal stimuli of the outside world can overwhelm them. Background noises that less sensitive people simply miss are not only audible over to the HSPs but drill into the ear canal, so they need all their power just to focus on their current activity. They are involved in a constant internal struggle, simple errands can be enormously stressful, because they feel that there is alway so much noise around. And not just noise, smells can have a similar impact. Everything they notice seems more intense as if they were using an internal amplifier.

Our inner beliefs mirror our inner reality – no matter if they match the outer reality or not. Sometimes there are even conflicts between both like when somebody of almost 2 m height feels and behaves like a dwarf (one of my patients). Another one feels dumb, but handles his life much better than many intellectual geniusses. A third one feels so ugly and ignores, how others look at her admiringly. Of course there are many inner beliefs that make our lives better, nobodyo wants to change them. Flower essences are used to bring new energy into areas of our lives, where we are stuck or somehow blocked off our vitality. And this is what this article is about: how to overcome sabotaging beliefs and inner polarities resulting from them.
