Like a little umbrella or shield, Yarrow offers protection from negative energies or toxic influences. She helps you to build strong, healthy boundaries and compassionate awareness of self and others, and to avoid unnecessary energy leaks and general depletion as you evolve and grow.

Learning to set strong, healthy personal boundaries is important not only for cultivating a positive self-concept and self-image, but also for maintaining physical health, too. Boundaries are our main way of communicating to others that we have self-respect and self-worth, and will not allow others to define us.

Recognizing who or what drains you, and who or what gives you joy, will help you identify where and where not to direct your effort and energy. Begin by saying a kind, but clear, “NO” to the people and things that do not support you.

Understand deeply that there is no one and no thing outside of yourself that can be responsible for your own health and happiness. That is the work of your lifetime!

Consider: Where are you "leaking" energy?
