When I need inspiration on the theme for the month I just look at which flower or crystal essence has 'comethrough' most often for clients and this month it's beautiful Nasturtium pictured here which is all about helpingus to make changes.
Why We Don't Make Changes
The message of Nasturtium is that we don't make changes in our life for two reasons:
We don't have the energy required to act
Thinking of change brings up fear which then blocks us and creates attitudes which stop us acting.
When faced with the need to act, avoidance acitvities can include a sudden urge to :
browse the internet
clean the bathroom
clear out the garage
plan the next holiday
catch up with old friends
decorate the hall
catch a cold and dive under the duvet
take on a new, demanding project at work
create a drama in your life which requires your immediate, full attention
Why Change Can Bring Up Guilt
Do any of these avoidance strategies sound familiar? Contemplating change can bring up guilt feelings, as we risk being disloyal to our family system. We risk being wealthier, more successful, clear of addiction or in a happy relationship. If none of these define being a member of your family then it will be hard for you to claim them for yourself.
Change can also mean changes in personal status - how will you be viewed as a newly married or newly single person, for example. Or perhaps you're contemplating downshifting
Maturing through change
For some of us there will be fears of having to come up-front and accept a more responsible role in life. Tostep into parenthood, a more responsible job or a carer's role to an elderly parent.These are all changes which can challenge our level of self-belief and make us ask ourselves what our corevalues really are. When we're asked to step forward, can we live up to our own self-image and our ownprinciples?
How Nasturtium can help
Nasturtium gets us out of our head and our intellect, where our fears are created, embellished and obsessedabout. It draws light through our crown and clears our brow and sacral chakras creating a strong spiritual andcreative connection so that we feel inspired and energised. Physically when we need this essence we mayhave poor vision, frequent headaches and blocked, irritated sinuses.Nasturtium helps us to accept different future roles in life. As part of a blend it helps us to accept thechallenge of change and to view such change with lightness and positivity rather than fear or dread.Nasturtium encourages change, growth and a whole new future.
Individual flower and crystal essences can also be mixed into a blend for you. If you need guidance or you'd like a personal blend made up, Nikki can attune for the essences most appropriate for your growth and healing.
