Protective Presence - Dendrobium spectabile (PNG) This essence is good for people who are travelling to places where personal safety is challenged. Useful in times of major change (such as moving house or career changes) to provide continuity and protection. It helps one to re-connect with inner strength. This orchid bears a resemblance to the protective "wrathful deities" of Tibetan Buddhism with the sense that a spiritual presence says "I go before you". Can aid in discovering that actual protection comes from realising the true nature of Being, which we find deep within.
