The concepts of Yin and Yang loosely equate to feminine and masculine, soft and hard, shadow and light, left and right, etc. They are polar opposites, yet each contains something of the other within it. In fact, they depend upon and support each other. Yin is primarily receptive and intuitive whilst Yang is primarily outgoing and logical. Each one on its own is lacking in balance. This composite essence helps to balance and stabilise these qualities bringing harmony and “dynamic stillness” to the being.
Larch epitomises the essence of Yin helping us to develop the intuitive side of our nature whilst not allowing logic to overcome this intuitive wisdom.
Honesty encourages that previously oppressed Yin energy to come to the fore, helping us to become open and receptive. Where Yin has been blocked, there are often difficulties due to fears and other subversive energies.
Delphinium helps us to open up to the full depths and mysteries of our intuitive nature. Blocks often occur at these levels as the ego knows that its very existence is threatened by opening up to such infinite wisdom.
Siberian Spruce has very Yang qualities. It mirrors the outgoing and assertive characteristics that are needed if we are to find and succeed in following our true path in the world. Without this quality we can easily become frustrated and dominated by the energies of others.
Red Clover helps the dominant Yang energies become sensitive to the support which is available from the Yin side of our nature. The logical aspect of Yang can all too easily become fearful of the innate non-logical wisdom of Yin. Red Clover helps Yang to understand that Yin is an equal but supportive companion and not to be feared.
Nasturtium is a catalyst for Yin/Yang balance changes. Many people have difficulty in maintaining an easy dynamic balance between Yin and Yang. In life we need to be able to shift easily between the two polarities as circumstances change around us. Nasturtium helps to energise such freedom of movement.
