(Prunus spinosa)
Purity of energy connection with self and others; moving away from fear of attack or invasion to your person or energy field; letting go of the need to be protected or defended; recovering connection to your innate resilience and wellbeing; knowing you are safe, whole and well.

  • The ephemeral blossoms of the Blackthorn emerge in the spring: a sudden spray of white froth along the hedgerow, lifting the bleakness of a landscape still mired in the dark colours of winter. However, these frothy blossoms can temporarily distract us from the shrub’s true nature: a dark, dense little tree covered in piercingly sharp, black thorns (from which it gets its name), set amongst a thicket of twigs and branches. 

    Blackthorn Essence is unique in that it has two seemingly contradictory uses. Its use it as an essence of protection and purification: it enables you to resist, deflect and dissolve dark, invasive energies from other people and/or the environment in which you find yourself. With its help, you can see danger coming and remain energetically intact in the face of it. Any sense of being vulnerable and permeable decreases, as the edges of your energy field strengthen and repel. Furthermore, the essence can purify you of dark energies that have already penetrated and taken hold. 

    However, whilst you can use Blackthorn in this way, with great effect in the acute - and I strongly recommend you do in order to gain the clarity needed to move to the next stage - ultimately, essences do not work on the principle that something ‘out there’ can harm you. And here we come to the deeper use for Blackthorn Essence. The essence actually works by fortifying your connection to your innatepurity and wholeness. It reminds you that you were never under threat to begin with, because there is no ‘other’ out there that can harm you. Your essential nature is oneness with All That Is. You are wholeness and all that comes back to meet you is wholeness. It is only your thinking, in the moment, that can ever make it appear otherwise. This, then, is your true protection: freedom from illusory and misleading thoughts about your world. Coming back to this potent truth, you naturally find yourself releasing any perception of attack. You recover an awareness of yourself as innately safe, whole and connected. Outside threats diminish and you see situations and people with new eyes. Blackthorn Essence, then, helps you transcend the illusion of being vulnerable to something outside yourself.
