New beginnings. Basing your life upon the ‘new’ moment. Allowing life to ‘breathe out’ the old, automatically, and ‘breathe in’ the new naturally.
Rebirth – Stage 1. Getting off to the right start. Starting a process at the logical starting point. Proper preparation. Initiating changes by doing what needs to be done. Beginning the transformation process by taking logical steps to bring the changes you desire. Stepping out of the shadows cast by your own mind and into the present moment. Moving into a new state of consciousness based upon the present moment – not your past ( thinking ). Mentally preparing yourself for any major changes you wish to make in your life.
Negative – Healing Crisis, Catharsis.
Meltdown. In crisis. Getting off to the wrong start. Starting a process at an illogical, random starting point. Improper preparation. Initiating changes to your life based upon the same old mentality and wondering why things never change. Paving the way for the same things to happen over and over again. Making changes or beginning new projects without proper or appropriate preparation. Ill prepared for what you have started and is about to happen. Mental instability and emotional insecurity caused by a process that you are not ready for. Causing a crisis by a lack of care and attention. Healing or inner work that ‘jack hammers’ at your problems and causes a wave of disturbance in your soul. Transformational shifts in consciousness that cause havoc due to a lack of preparation for it. Dark night of the soul.
Cause of Issue – Transformation ( of the Ego )
The Botanical Archetype Dyckia is still under research. One clue is that they are for ‘transformation’ and deep shifts in consciousness.
Lesson of this Plant Group
It is not the soul that transforms. It is the ego that does. The mind opens like a flower bud, peeling away layers of confusion about the true nature of the self.
The Doctrine of Signatures
Genus Dyckia is a range of small, hemispherical plants that a prickly to touch. Their stiff leaves form a dense protection for the plant which is one of the signature clues that these plants are highly protective during deep inner work. Their flower spikes are excessively long and this hints at distant, detached emotions that have been projected outward from the central self. Interestingly, ants pollinate these plants and form colonies at the base of these rock dwelling plants, whereby they gain protection from predators and the elements. The Dyckias are rather potent remedies to work with and a great deal of care ( and skill ) should be applied when using them as their work is with ‘crisis states’ – such as catharsis, deep disturbance and for safeguarding oneself during somewhat ‘heavy’ transitions.
