If you’re attracted to the Taiwanese Wild Lily, you may be repressing certain emotions. If big or intense emotions arise, your inner military general or bossy girl may clamp down on these emotions, leading to a propensity to get stuck. You may be holding on too tightly, which prevents your emotions from being processed and converted into energy. You may have felt verklempt and unable to let it out.
If this habit of repression is sustained over time, ultimately we break down. We begin to ride the edge of insanity and can end up lashing out or crumbling into grief.
Physically, this pattern of stagnant energy can manifest itself in the body as constipation or a clogged lymphatic system. It can also present as stiff or rigid joints, or tension in your muscles or fascia.
When we get too rigid, we break. When we hold on too tightly, things fall out of our control. Taiwanese Wild Lily (Crotalaria Pallida) helps us loosen up and let it all hang out. We’re able to release the tension around whatever emotions or challenging situations are arising.
We can be like a river that flows around the bends. We’re more able to roll with the punches, amplifying our resiliency. We can quiet down the military general/bossy girl and experience difficulties or intense emotions with more gentleness and fluidity.
Physically, this stimulates the waters of our body to lubricate our joints, intestines and muscles/fascia. Our bodies are more able to move with ease and gentleness. We sleep better and experience a more generous sense of daily well being.
Also known as the wild soybean, this tall yellow wildflower is found in the grassy fields of Yilan, Taiwan. This same flower is eaten as a vegetable in Cambodia, and its seeds are made into a sort of coffee drink. In Vietnam, the roots are chewed together with betel nuts. Herbally, the roots have been used to reduce inflammation in swollen joints and its leaf extract expels worms from the digestive tract.
