Plant Profile: No 25 Kowhai

Sophora microphylla

Kowhai Deva’s Blessing

I bring the gift of adventure. Through me you embrace the joy of growth as you open yourself to the wonder of self-discovery and new experience.

No 25 Kowhai is the essence of adventure, exploration, travel and the joy of following our own true path. In the positive Kowhai state, we feel free to pursue our own special interests as we boldly set off to seek our fortune. Kowhai is philosophical and searching for the true meaning of life, enjoying every step of the journey.

In a negative Kowhai state there is pain, fear or anger around travel or taking risks. The sense of adventure is not there, causing frustration in the personal life experience. Kowhai is the first choice for adults and children experiencing reluctance or fear of travel.

Indications for working with Kowhai include:

  • Feeling unlucky and let down by one’s beliefs
  • Inner pain at not fulfilling one’s purpose
  • Having no sense of adventure
  • A ‘what’s the use?’ or ‘there’s no point’ attitude
  • Needing to move on from a place or situation but lacking the courage to do so
  • Involvement in unhealthy risk taking – gambling etc.
  • Being in a painfully new or foreign situation

Work with No 25 Kowhai to feel empowered by the process of breaking into the new and being open to personal development.
