Oxalis pes-caprae For things that have you by the throat and seem so overpowering that there appears to be no way out. This beautiful pure yellow flower is widespread in many parts of the world. It can be found in places as far apart as Bermuda and South Africa. Its essence is for things that “have you by the throat”. When people feel to be in the clutches of something that is strangling them, holding them back, this is the essence to choose. Often the fear of feeling strangled will have caused constriction in the throat area and this constriction will have magnified the symptoms. Oxalis helps to unblock the energy in the Throat Chakra. As the throat area frees up, the nature of the threatening forces can be more readily discerned. With this information people can usually see the best way of extricating themselves from their difficulties. Oxalis can be of great help to people who have difficulties in either allowing new things to enter their lives or in relinquishing the old ones. Often the use of Milk Thistle will encourage the inhibiting fears to release their hold.
