Holly: Healing The Battle Within Our Own Hearts

Dec 03, 2016

At this season when we “Deck the halls with boughs of holly,” let us remember the healing message of the Holly plant, sacred to the Druid peoples, and one of the key flower essences of Dr. Bach.

When Dr. Bach made the Holly flower essence in 1935, he described it as being for “jealousy, envy, revenge, suspicion, the different forms of vexation,” and as a protection “from everything that is not Universal Love.” Julian Barnard says it deals with “all kinds of strongly negative emotions which not only burn within a person but express themselves in destructive, even violent behaviour.” Therapist Gay Mack had the insight that Holly is the remedy for vindictive and bullying behavior, for the person who deals with his/her own wounding by lashing out at others. Keep in mind that the Holly essence came into being in the 1930s when Hitler, Mussolini and Franco were gaining power, and the world approached a second global conflict.

Now, at this time in our history, we need more than ever to remember the ideal of universal love for all peoples, and for all of Creation. The Holly flower essence addresses not so much the violence and hatred we see in the world around us, but rather the battle within our own hearts. The positive message of Holly is captured beautifully in these affirmations by Patricia Kaminski:

From the depths of my heart, I reach out.
I recognize others as part of my Universal Self.
I feel gratitude for the good will of others.
Compassion makes my heart grow full.

In order to spread the message of Holly far and wide, we at FES are featuring the Holly flower essence in our winter sale: Healing Gifts from the Heart of Nature to Nourish Body and Soul. Read more about our FES healing gifts here: http://eepurl.com/cqlPI1
