Plant Profile: No 114 Taraire

Beilschmiedia tarairi

No 114 Taraire is a teacher plant essence that belongs to the First Light Flower Essences of New Zealand® Shamanic Collection. Taraire helps us to keep and maintain our presence of mind. It can initiate a sacred passage within you, working to reclaim back the true power of your own mind. Taraire can be used to retrieve our mind or mental direction when they have been stolen or given away to another or call back that part of our soul on the timeline that has been lost. This powerful nature intelligence supports us to think for ourselves and helps us to keep our mind intact when under the influence of a strong-minded other.

No 114 Taraire is also an essence of protection against the mind intrusions or mental projections of others. It can be very useful in situations where someone is trying to force us to do something that we are not of a mind to do. Children and teenagers are particularly susceptible to this when they are in the grip of excessive peer pressure.

No 114 Taraire will also offer protection against technological mind stealers! Too much television and time on the internet are capable of desensitizing us and numbing our mind by sapping our mental vitality and the mind in general.

No 114 Taraire is indicated in our lives when:

  • we want to stay mind-full and connected to Divine Mind
  • we feel mentally overwhelmed by another person or situation
  • we think we are losing our mind or going mad
  • we have given our mind or direction away to another
  • we are being over-influenced by peer and media pressure
  • we are having difficulty in thinking for ourselves
