Holly (Lex aquifolium)
Holly embodies pure love. It opens the heart to love and to Divine awareness. It holds a state that we all desire, that of harmony and upliftment, where we celebrate our own and other’s achievements and successes, freely feeling genuine love. It opens one up to knowing and feeling the Divine essence of Love within, which was previously blocked.
For those who feel cut off from their positive emotions, especially love, causing the opposite; unhealthy expressions of anger, jealousy, envy, suspicion and even hatred. They may express these feeling overtly as well as resentment, and a desire for revenge. They often suspect that they are being deceived, not realizing that they are the ones deceiving themselves. They can feel hurt by others and have a general sense of discontent and unhappiness without understanding why. They are very vulnerable and hide that vulnerability with their negative expressions, mostly unaware.
