Gorse Flower Essence

Gorse: Banishing Hopelessness

 Gorse flower essence is a powerful remedy for treating pessimism; or, to a greater degree, a complete sense of hopelessness. If you see no point in trying because you lack faith in a positive resolution, this remedy will build optimism. Gorse flower essence supports a sunnier outlook on life and is useful for people who have been ill for a while and feel there is no hope for recovery.

Positive qualities:
Deep and abiding faith and hope; equanimity and light-filled optimism.
Patterns of imbalance:
Discouragement, darkness, hopelessness, resignation.

The soul must learn to live in equilibrium between the polarities of light and dark. Those needing Gorse flower essence have internalized darkness or pessimism in their outlook on life. This pessimism gives too much weight and depression to the soul, and erodes the soul’s natural buoyancy.

Gorse flower essence restores hope to such souls, so that they are able to look with a brighter, more expectant, and joyful outlook on life situations. This quality of hope deeply affects the physical as well as emotional healing, because the life force is nourished by light. Such persons need to counter the darkness they feel within themselves with strong forces of inner light and luminous insight.

Through Gorse flower essence, the soul learns to use light as an alchemical agent for change and healing, directing a powerful, illuminating beacon even in the most trying moments and bleakest situations.
