The Fiery Emotions - Anger, Jealousy, and Rage

September 28, 2020

holly flower essence

I started writing this post about a few months ago. I paused and now I reflect a little deeper on what to share. In large part the disruptions to our society are caused by heat and fire. Increased hurricane and tropical storm activity is the result of warmer ocean temperatures. The vast and uncontrollable firestorms out west. And technology which is a modern way of harnessing fire.

There are obvious manifestations of excess of fire and heat that we see and experience. And, I want to now look at the ways these excesses manifest internally. Here are some of the ways our body expresses this excess:

  • Jaw Tension - Grinding teeth
  • Inflammations in the body
  • Rashes
  • Candida/Yeast Infections
  • Fatigue, Depression
  • Heart and Breathing Difficulties

These are a few ways in which repressing the powerful emotion of anger impacts our well being. Excessive anger in the personality sets up a barrier to intimacy and connection. We know to stay away from people who are angry. This makes it difficult to establish contact with others that is nourishing and meaningful.

Holly Flower Essences for Anger, Jealousy, and Rage

In this section I could talk about any number of flower essences but I will only talk about 1. That is Holly flower essence. Dr. Bach considered Holly flower essence an important remedy. He saw it as a fulcrum essence that could help people gain the energy to pivot towards well being. He also said if you don't know what to give someone to give them Holly flower essence and it will reveal what people need.

In these heated times literally and metaphorically Holly flower essence stands out as a panacea for a peaceful heart. It is interesting to note that the emotions listed above contribute to poor health. It is also through the heart that we connect with others. And, when we are boiling with anger, jealousy, and rage healthy, heartfilled connections are hard to make.

My approach to flower essences is often more personalized as opposed to suggesting a remedy for everyone to take. Of course there exceptions to every rule. And, I personally started taking Holly this year and have found it to be very helpful. It has helped me find more middle ground and to view things from a more loving and detached perspective. This has helped me make connections with others in ways that feel meaning and heart centered. We live in a time that seems very polarized. So if you are looking for something to help you maintain balanced awareness Holly flower essence is one to consider.
