Flower essences to help you let go of limiting beliefs
Are you struggling with limiting beliefs? For me, one of the most life-changing aspects of working with flower essences is that they've helped me to drop a whole range of limiting beliefs that were holding me back from living my best life. Here are just a few examples of flower remedies I've used to help me see things in a new light and expand my sense of what's possible - I hope they'll help you to do the same!
What are limiting beliefs?
Before we start though, what is a limiting belief anyway? Where do they come from? And why do they matter?
In short, a limiting belief is something that you are convinced is true, but that is reducing your options, keeping you small, or causing you to expect that a certain situation is a foregone conclusion.
Sometimes those beliefs are about yourself, sometimes they’re about other people, and sometimes they’re about the way that life, the Universe and everything in it work.
All of them are unhelpful, and all of them are adopted by your brain or ego with the express goal of keeping you safe.
But, since your brain and your ego often equate being safe with maintaining the status quo and protecting you from the unknown, limiting beliefs also have the net effect of keeping you stuck.
And who needs that, right?
I’ve fallen prey to a limiting belief or two (thousand… at least!) in my time, and I’m quite sure that there are plenty more where they came from that are yet to make themselves known.
But working with flower essences has helped me to get LOTS better at recognising them, and has also helped me to move past some of those that used to be the most detrimental.
If you’re ready to let go of the hold that limiting beliefs have on you too, here are a few flower essences to consider:
Dragon Slayer™ flower essence shines the light on limiting beliefs
In my experience, limiting beliefs start to lose their power once you recognise them for what they are – stories you’ve been telling yourself to help you make sense of the world and keep you safe in it.
Dragon Slayer™ is our favourite flower essence to help with this situation. It’s on a mission to help shine a light on the stories you’ve been telling yourself and empower you to create new ones that support your goals and visions rather than holding you back from them.
The ritual of working with this flower essence may be particularly beneficial for you if the stories you’ve been telling yourself include things like ‘ I’m not strong enough ’, ‘I’m not disciplined enough’, or ‘ I could never do or be x, y, or z’.
Top tip: If you’re struggling with procrastination, lack of momentum or the belief that you don’t have what it takes to make things turn out the way you want them to, Dragon Slayer™ might just be your new best friend.
Other flower essences to help release limiting beliefs
Dragon Slayer™ is almost always the first flower essence we recommend to people who are ready to let go of beliefs that are unhelpful and restricting, but there are several other flower essences that you might like to team it with, depending on what’s going on for you.

When it comes to limiting beliefs, don’t forget that one of the most destructive is that you ‘ should’ be able to tackle things like this on your own. But sometimes you really can benefit from expert assistance to help you take a step forward, so don’t be afraid to reach out to your healthcare professional if you’re stuck and in need of support.
