Do not make decisions based on thinking, allow yourself to experience. Experience is real and is the only
way to get out of your head. Be brave in coming from your center, your core being. Separate in your mind
the past from who you are now. Look at life in the present, not ltered by the past and past suffering.
Provides a template of a soft ltering boundary and the resultant gift of space to explore the heart: to
clear it and honor it. Strawberry Hedgehog invites you to live from your heart making your heart a place
you want to live from.
Strawberry Hedgehog helps to balance the bladder from mental stress, soothes the mind from endless
thoughts, and releases current emotions held in the tissues of the body. It lters out all that is not good for
the heart before the heart has to process it and lters the 4th energy eld to release traumatic memories.
- Rationalizing or trying to make it happen. Breaks the pattern of mentalizing the breath of insight.
- Making decisions based on the past and past trauma.
- Any dysfunction created by not filtering the external environment or excessive absorption of things externally.
“My gift is in the strength of my balance: external filtering for inward space of being.”
