Sunflower works on father wounds and heals distortions in relationships to those in authority. When we grow up with a conflicted relationship, or lack of relationship, to our fathers, it plays into self-esteem issues. We also tend to project the natural relationship we had with our fathers onto how we see God. None of us had perfect fathers in the natural; our issues may cause a block in our ability to receive assistance from Universal Source energy. It also impacts where insecurity is an issue, where the person continually tries to convince others of their value. Sunflower is corrective of both insecurity and pride, bringing the person into balance in the grand scheme of things.
