This flowering tree grows beside fresh water creeks, billabongs and swamps in the Northern Territory. The healing quality of the Essence is to release and heal mental prejudice, allowing the heart to open without prejudgement. The prejudice of Slender Rice Flower stems from direct personal experience whereas Freshwater Mangrove is for those who mentally reject or have already made up their mind about something without it ever being experienced. Often the seeds of this prejudice have been sown for a long time. In many cases, it is generational, as in the case of countries where religious prejudice is passed on and accepted by the young without question. Many prejudices are built because of cultural or societal belief that something cannot be done. This Essence has the potential to allow us to fully experience and is open on both a mental and heart level to new perceptual shifts and all the changes occurring at this time.
• heart closed due to expectations or prejudices which have been taught, not personally experienced
• openness to new experiences, people, and perceptual shifts
• a healthy questioning of traditional standards and beliefs
