Bach Flower Remedy: Holly And Love
The Bach flower remedy Holly is all about love. It brings peace and harmony where there is strife – and caring where there is hatred and anger. This flower remedy has the incredible power to turn negativity completely around and instill positive feelings in its place. It is called for when hearts have got hardened with months, even years of anger, hate, mistrust and envy. This is the remedy that spells a gentle love which erases past wounds and rage and lets love grow.
His eyes are always full of suspicion and mistrust. He’s always looking for a cause to get angry and be hateful. This translates into physical problems like high blood pressure and the possibility of strokes. He might be sporty but his body is usually tense, not supple. This will change only when he has learned to give up his hatred and relax with love. Holly opens the doors to a more healthy body by getting rid of this baggage of rage and ill-feeling.
He loses his temper not just at people but also at ideas. There is a latent anger that is just below the surface all the time and never goes away, waiting to lash out at someone or something. It could be a colleague, it could be a family member it could even be a book or a movie. In his mind, it is a waiting game – who or what do I annihilate next? Holly calms his down and teaches him that he does not have to be one-up on everyone – it is fine to just accept and appreciate without tearing down.
He cannot give love freely – his love is always conditional. The recipient of his love has to conform to what he wishes them to be otherwise he loses his cool. This is a great remedy for the raging control freaks of this world – not the cold, calculating person who controls but the bully who controls with a loud voice and sometimes violence. This is not a once in a way losing of his temper but a constant state of mind. Holly makes him love as he should – by giving first.
Even though he might belong to a religious group, he is the one who will argue and shut whenever there is a getting together of a group. He will want his voice to be heard and he will make it a point to be spiteful. He can rarely be happy in the spiritual commonality that has brought the group together and tries to disrupt things with arguments. Holly makes him feel one with a group that espouses love and helps him be drained of his spiritual pride and envy.
