Cow-Wheat helps you to find your words and convey what you need to say with clarity, ease and confidence. The essence helps you connect inwards and find, therein, a quiet, clear pool from which the words you need will emerge of their own accord - trustworthy, eloquent and apt.
Sometimes, the simple act of trying to express yourself truthfully and authentically seems riddled with difficulties. Cow-Wheat is the essence to use when your ability to express yourself is blocked: you are ‘lost for words’, ‘tongue-tied’, feel too shy to speak or are afraid of saying the wrong thing. You may find yourself continually putting your foot in it. Or you inadvertently tend to compromise yourself in order to please your listener rather than voicing what is true for you. You may find yourself being too harsh, too blunt or too clumsy (see Viper’s Bugloss for being overly critical of others); or you may find yourself being too timid, woolly or vague. However it is manifesting, you are struggling to convey your meaning in a way that others can hear and receive.
When you experience this difficulty around self-expression, this is an indication that you are not truly listening to yourself in the moment: you have momentarily lost your connection to your Essential Self. Centred here, you are naturally eloquent and potent. You do not even have to think about your words: the right words find you. They emerge as truth: relaxed, clear and calm, and they have a particular quality: they are authoritative, but also non-threatening. You find that you can express yourself with strength and compassion, and you find that other people sit up and listen. As such, the essence is also deeply helpful for times when you are speaking in public, or in groups, or when you are about to talk to someone about something difficult - any situation where you may be knocked off centre and lose your connection with your own wellspring of words. With the help of the essence, you are able to settle back into that clear space within and remember to simply let the words come.
Cow-Wheat points you back to easeful eloquence. It helps you access your inner wisdom, and it facilitates the emergence of your authentic self-expression.
