Pine Flower Essence
Self-acceptance, self-forgiveness; freedom from inappropriate guilt and blame.
Patterns of imbalance:
Guilt, self-blame, self-criticism, inability to accept oneself.
Objective knowledge of one’s faults is an important soul virtue; when taken to an extreme, however, one can be wracked with undue guilt and misery. Those who need Pine flower essence get stuck in self-blame.
At times a real circumstance form the past may result in deep feelings of regret and remorse; however the Pine type often feels guilt which is entirely disproportionate to the actual events. These feelings may arise from childhoods, when the person learned to internalize blame for dysfunction in the family system, or they may stem from a religious background which emphasizes sin and error more than salvation and grace.
Pine flower essence helps the Self to learn true forgiveness by quite literally being for giving: learning to release rather than retain energy. The individual is encouraged to move forward rather than stay entangled in self-deprecation and emotional paralysis. At its highest level, Pine flower essence teaches self-acceptance and inner esteem as a pathway to the soul’s realization of its own sacredness and divinity.
Taken from the Flower Essence Repertory by Patricia Kaminski and Richard Katz.
