Sunbonnet (Diascia barberae)

For possessiveness arising out of neediness, inadequacy, a dependence upon others or a particular other, to validate one's very existence. For a sense of not being good enough, for those who draw energy from others, such as a partner, in order to have the courage to present themselves to the world. This is frequently the case in co-dependent relationships where both partners' need for each other, regardless of how they cover it up, arises out of an abyss of personal inadequacy. It may manifest as control or servitude but has the same root.


This essence facilitates an honouring of the Self, the development of self-worth and self-esteem which liberates one to become a self- actuated, loving human being, able to give loved ones the space and freedom necessary for their own evolution.
