Essence: Courage to act, moving forwards to adventure and exploration; releasing self- restriction, particularly where we have created our own rules and constraints from our past; being able to work with the past and past events, releasing what holds us and finding the good and useful from this.

Use: Cricket remedy works well when taken over the space of a few days, particularly when experiencing being stuck and unable to act. It is helpful for anxiety – particularly in a social context where old patterns of socialization and old relationships may be encountered. Cricket also attends to the soul when there has been soul loss due to ostracization and where, through past experiences of inadequacy and aloneness in groups, there is an inability to feel supported in community. Cricket gives the courage to be present and participate in community and groups.
Cricket is helpful in the face of chaos and when your actions become futile. Use in busy workplaces where you find yourself jumping to other people’s stress and urgency. Try cricket at work and see how you get on.

Description: Crickets comes from the order of Orthoptera, which means straight wings. Crickets have big thighed, jumping hind legs, and ears in the shins of the forelegs. The chorus of sound heard is created by the rasping structures at the base of the male’s forewings, which are rapidly drawn over each other creating friction, while the wings are held up at an angle. During the day, crickets shelter in cracked ground or under convenient objects.
The female deposits her eggs in the cracked ground during late summer and autumn. There they overwinter, hatching in October and feeding on ground vegetation. Their wings develop gradually until they mature in mid-summer. Crickets grow by shedding their skin on a regular basis. After each moult the crickets utilize the trace elements contained in the skin by eating it.

Meaning: This remedy can reveal unconscious material and point towards the shadow in an issue. It gives the ability to work with the past, to see the past events and incidences that are hard to integrate and fully move through. It helps us forward by allowing us to see the good and the useful in our situation. Cricket shines a light in the darkness. It helps in times when we feel blind and can only go from one point to another without seeing the bigger picture. It gives the ability to take in what life presents to us and transmute it.
