Cymbidium hybridus Relates to the hidden side of our nature, brings peace and harmony to the subconscious parts of our mind. This is a lunar essence, made at the time of the full moon in our meditation room. This essence relates to the hidden side of our nature. Its associations are with the Yin aspect of both men and women. It is particularly concerned with the negativities that so often hide just beneath the surface of the conscious. In this area of the subconscious, close to the interface with the conscious, old resentments, anger and repression may lie hidden. Repressed feelings of any sort usually lurk close to consciousness and Cymbidium Orchid helps to bring these tensions to the surface. Once they are seen for what they really are, old shadows from the past, they lose their power over us. It also works at much deeper levels of our subconscious. Many of us are very fearful of what we might find if we ventured into the deepest recesses of our minds. Cymbidium helps to activate the intuition (which means inner-tuition) so that we can see for ourselves that our fears have been groundless. Angels and demons are our interpretations of our visions of spirit beings. Fears of demonic forces can be very strong - as indeed can the desire to encounter angelic beings. This essence helps us to realize that these forces are merely the Yang and Yin of this dimension. Both are needed for our growth. Without the testings of Lucifer (the light-bringer) we will never know our own strengths and vulnerabilities. In the spiritual realms we are still in the area of duality, so counterbalancing forces are inevitable. Cymbidium brings insight and wisdom into our intuition so that we can see for ourselves the true nature of the spiritual dimensions of our being.
