Broad-leaved Orchid

The essence

This flower essence is especially indicated for men who deny their own maleness or can not deal with it appropriately. It‘s about men who have come to terms with mediocrity, and unobtrusiveness and can express not their actual capabilities. Apparently they have given up and resigned, but inwardly they are dissatisfied, condemn themselves, feel a great desire for self-fulfillment, but are hindered by fear and other emotional blockages. What remains is self-reproach, self-pity, but also impotent anger.

Men in such a situation find it difficult to accept any comfort, they fend off external assistance, assuming that would be another sign of their weakness. Such men tend to isolate themselves from others, their male self-esteem is destroyed.

Broad-leaved Orchid is able to transform a seemingly hopeless fate of in childhood or even later, humiliated, abused and mistreated boys. It helps to regain their true identity, brings creativity, honesty and self-esteem.
