Prickly Pear Flower Essence . [ set of 4 ]
Prickly Pear is one of our most popular flower essences—and for good reason! This iconic desert medicine provides resilience and reassurance to the layers of the psyche which govern our sense of safety, security, and self worth.Like so many desert allies, Prickly Pear has the remarkable ability to make the most of the resources available, and to bloom despite the odds. This essence teaches us to do the same, and helps us to appreciate what we *do* have instead of focusing on what we might lack.
This is an excellent essence for anyone who pines for that which is just beyond their reach, rather than enjoying the gifts which already surround them. I use this essence in my practice to help folks shift habits of over-eating, over-buying, and over-committing, as well as for anyone who struggles to savor their accomplishments before moving on to the next task. It is also a key ingredient in many formulas for individuals who seem to be on an un-ending quest of self-improvement, without taking time to appreciate just how far they’ve come.
So often we attempt to satisfy a spiritual longing through the material world, and to no avail. Prickly Pear is an essence for making new choices which truly nourish us on all levels, rather than settling for substitutes which leave us longing for more.
