Gorse (Ulex Europaeus)
Gorse uplifts and offers comfort, contentment, joy and a release from the deep inner torment previously present. This unlocks the grip these feelings have had on the person and restores hope and faith in a higher order. This opens up space for the person to look within and reflect on the condition at hand, gaining a larger, more wholesome perspective. Life becomes lighter and more joyous.
For those with a deep sense of anguish, despair, melancholy, and sorrow, being utterly despondent, forlorn, discouraged, about life. They experience hopelessness and loss of faith. They most often try to keep a happy “front” or demeanor not only to convince others, but also to convince themselves that all is well.
