“Clarence used to be full of life and would not hesitate to face any challenge. But now Clarence is afraid of death. A few years ago he had quite a scare when he was diagnosed with prostate cancer. Since then he has not been able to find any joy or pleasure in his life. The thought of death keeps haunting him. He doesn’t have any beliefs around what happens after death. To him it is such an abstract concept that he would rather not think about it. He knows he needs to sort these feelings out so he can move forward with his life. Yet he just doesn’t know how. He would feel so much better about life if he could only lose this fear of death.”

Shrubby Cinquefoil flower essence releases fear, especially the fear of death. It helps us to see other perspectives. We see this plant as a tiny, beautiful yellow rose. But in the UV spectrum, that most insects see in; it is white, with a red bull’s eye, focusing the insect’s attention to the stamen and pistil. In our daily lives we might fear something like death, but from a slightly different prospective it might be focusing us on our way to Higher Self or heaven.

It is a useful essence for those who are in the healing arts, communication or the service industry. It helps one’s words be an expression of higher spiritual realms. It aids in mental clarity while facilitating expressions of abstract thought. Shrubby Cinquefoil flower essence helps us hear what is in our heart and connect with our passions. In this way it supports creativity and helps us enjoy the NOW. It encourages one to break free and become their true self.

Shrubby Cinquefoil gives one a feeling of security and protection by bringing into focus intuitive knowing. It can be used to cleanse energy fields of imprints or vulnerabilities which attract dark, negative or depleting personalities to us. In this way it will help to release residual ‘emotional knots’ formed in childhood.
