Hyssop addresses guilt and shame-based issues and all their cousins: self sabotage, self-blame, fear of being judged, perfectionism and unworthiness. Hyssop works within the structures of thinking we’ve created to reverse the internal judgment and self-condemnation we fall into. Some degree of judgment is necessary, but it’s not to be held on to and continually revived. This kind of self-punishment creates a barrier towards receiving the good in life. Hyssop is especially wonderful for those who grew up in a guilt-based religious system, which has become a stumbling block to a true relationship with unconditional love.
