Holding One's Ground

This plant flower essence helps you work with feelings of powerlessness in situations where your energies are being drained by domineering and controlling people and/or situations. Eclipsing mothers, competitive siblings, bossy bosses,
controlling spouses can all leave you with feelings of helplessness and frustration. In such relationships it is always important to understand that your job is not to try to change the other person or the situation..... your job is to remember who you are and what you believe and have to offer and to hold true to our yown vision.zThe Bearberry essence helps you to hold your ground by rooting your qualities of self-respect and emotional clarity.
It helps to release your need to keep the peace through compliance or allowing yourself to be exploited. It assists in creating stability within situations by helping you to feel more emotional clarity and grounding, which allows you to speak your truth with poise and ask for what you need with confidence.
As you learn to speak from this place of calm inner strength, your words can be better received and your confidence in yourself will flourish.
Bearberry (Uva Ursi) ~ a sweet little evergreen plant growing on woody branches along the sand dunes on the shore of Lake Michigan ~ produces dainty little globe-shaped flowers that hang in pairs like little bells from the shiny oval green and red leaves.
