Strawberry is especially helpful during times of transition, for these are the times when we are more likely to doubt ourselves. We may merely need to adjust to specific changes in our bodies or environments: puberty, mid-life crisis, or menopause. Strawberry is also helpful during the dissolution of relationships; for the person who is left; and for the child dealing with a divorce. It helps us to remain present in the moment and deal with the issues at hand and, ultimately, to realize that all of our needs are met from within ourselves, thereby banishing a sense of lack.

Some years ago, a well known astrologer came for a consultation. The woman with whom he was deeply in love seemed unable to make a commitment to him. This situation was beginning to cause him much suffering. After one week on Strawberry, he decided that it was time to clarify the relationship and take a stand. He presented her with a choice; commit, or he was leaving. The stars were in his favor. She was impressed by his decisiveness. They have been married-happily, I’m told-for some time now.

There is much talk these days of self-esteem, a term defined as either belief in oneself or conceit. Strawberry’s message-an important and oft-needed one in individual essence programs-is not so much to esteem ourselves as to walk, breathe and speak from the state of our true source of loving dignity, which is divinity. Isn’t this much better than merely esteeming ourselves?


Strawberry embodies the issues that we all have to address at some time in our lives. Perhaps we suffer moments or possibly decades of self-doubt and unworthiness. Anything less than an ideal childhood- that probably includes most of the human race-can foster problems with self-worth. Any time we fail at a task is a potential time of questioning. “I’m just not good enough”; “I can’t do anything right”-these are thought patterns indicating the need for Strawberry. It is also the essence for self-blame, feelings of inadequacy and guilt over many issues, including sexuality.

Strawberry-like self-worth issues are imprinted by parents on their children. Children, in turn reaching adulthood, recreate these patterns, possibly perpetuating generations of unhealthy family patterning. But with energy, insight and grace, the dysfunctional spell may be broken. Strawberry is an excellent remedy for freeing us from these deeply ingrained, hurtful patterns.

This key essence vibrationally encourages the expression of grounding, centering and feeling integrated in our body, during adolescence in particular. It is helpful for children and adults who tend to be spacey, dreamy or irresponsible. Because of its grounding effect, it strengthens those who are psychically oversensitive and need to be less affected by the energies of others.


Go to the opera, symphony, ballet or theater.

Go shopping. Buy yourself something special that says “you are worth it.”

Treat yourself to a special meal out.

Pay attention to your posture. Especially keep your shoulders back-no slumping!

Identify with your strengths, your talents, your special brand of goodness. Do not allow yourself to fall prey to self-deprecating thoughts.


Close your eyes. Focus on your breathing. Imagine that each inhalation makes you slightly taller and more majestic in spirit. With each exhalation, relax the muscles of your face more deeply. Bring the focus of your attention, drawn through the act of smiling and relaxing the muscles around your eyes, to the point between and just above your eyebrows. The purpose of fixity at this point is to uplift you, to free you from all the mental chains that have weighted you down in your waking existence. Imagine now in some detail, that all sense of unworthiness, imperfection and lack fall away from you with each ensuing breath.

You are floating, floating in space, wafting upward on clouds of comfort, clouds of contentment. A deep sense of fulfillment-the riches of kings, queens and empires-permeates the temple of your body, your mind, and your spirit. These are the riches of royalty-only they are not counted in gold coins and material trinkets. Yours are the riches of character, full to overflowing with noble qualities gathered over many years-worthwhile years, happy years, ennobling years.

Return now to the welcome friend of each breath. When you are ready, open your eyes and silently repeat the following affirmation.

My husband, myself and my 2 children have been using the flower essences for the last 4 months and I feel they have really addressed and dealt with problems that we knew and many we didn’t know of. The essences are very powerful and deeply spiritual in nature. My family started with orange and strawberry flower essence and within a week of taking them we are felt uplifted and with a deeper and higher energy and free from a many issues. Since then we have taken many different ones as had been indicated by the test and each time the essence prescribed has been exactly what was needed to fix the problem at that point in time. For us the essences have opened a new, deep, and very powerful door allowing us to improve ourselves and evolve. I deeply recommend everyone should take them. ~ S.P., New Delhi

I am a homeopathic practitioner since 18 years. I have gone through the book The Essential Flower Essence Handbook. After my in-depth studies, I prescribed more than 100 essences to my patients, especially on their mood and nature. I used Avocado Essence for memory and concentration in school children and observed their results are improving from their next test only. I used Cherry Essence for cheerfulness and Pineapple for confidence. In the next follow up patients reported that they feel improvement as soon as they took the first drop. Many patients have started reading The Essential Flower Essences Handbook and want to know more about the essences for their use and help others also. ~ Dr. Ketan Shah, MD (Homeopath), Ahmedabad

I have been working very hard with my elder one, but now seems to loose my patience. One day on some refernce i contacted Dipti ji and she adviced Tomato and Spinach essences for me. This worked very well, specially Spinach essence. I am trying Avocado essence for my child now. ~ R.S.

Jena came from North East and joined me as assistant sales executive in my office. First week went off well. The second week I found her disturbed and most distracted. Turned out she had lost her mother some time back and she was missing her that day. And all in all she was demotivated to concentrate on work. Corn Essence was handy. One dose under the tongue and 20 minutes later Jena was sitting in front of me asking me how to deal with a certain difficult customer! ~ Kamini, Bangalore
