Canada Thistle has to do with one’s relationship to family and community. Part of your personality is constructed by how you identify yourself within your family or community. The development of this part begins in childhood and can be hampered when the experience of family was negative, chaotic or painful. Canada Thistle helps to grow that soul fragment up and re-orient as far as identity within family or community. For those who are afraid of being with people, who have a negative reflex response to authority, for those who have had abusive family members or unresolved issues with family, Canada Thistle helps soften and dislodge beliefs, attitudes and feelings in the personality around who you are in the context of a larger group of people. Beyond just dealing with childhood past, it can be used for present family discord.
