First Light® flower essence No 21 Hinau, the essence of sacred space
Hinau calms your emotional waters and brings clarity by creating stillness within. It brings the gift of sacred space. Sacred space is probably something that everyone can do with as personal or sacred space for oneself is so essential to our well-being.
This is an essence I use in many blends for clients. Most mothers or women are often the centre of families and uphold all the connections and relationships. This often results in a full life with little time for self.
Using the flower essence Hinau can be likened to drawing an imaginary circle around you, so that there is a bit of a buffer between you and the world. This buffer can give you time to reflect and decide what it is that you want to do with all the interactions that life directs to you.
With this flower energy you can hold off life barging in, and make it come knocking instead.
Then it can be up to you to answer or to say Yes! or No thank you.
The first time I saw the flower of the tree Hinau in the wild was at a very special place at Lake Waikaremoana. With the sun shining on it and two kereru sitting in the tree, it was quite the encounter.
To me Hinau can connect you back to your true self. It helps me to make sense of the world and supports me to take time out for my self and Self. Reconnecting with my higher self and listening to what is important for me and what isn’t.
Hinau – Libra essence for those born between October the 12th – October 22nd with the personality type ‘The Mediator’. Used for mothers, women but men equally in the blend Sacred Space and in many other blends for finding stillness in turbulent waters.
