Essence: There is a timeless quality to hangehange. It allows a space to open, a reflection to occur as we transition from place to place or activity to activity. It invites us to slow down and arrive into a different pace.
Use: Hangehange is particularly good for children who go at a different pace to those around them. It is also useful for parents to adjust to a slower pace and give space and time with their children. It is helpful when we feel overloaded. I find it supports learning processes, particularly the challenges of learning new things. It helps us to receive, integrate and extend our abilities around information.
Description: Hangehange is a small tree with shining pale green leaves and slender brittle branches. It grows up to 4m in height and is classified as a bushy shrub as it tends to have a thin trunk. In a dry summer, the leaves wilt and yet it seems to survive a drought well. I love the softness of its appearance and the green of its leaves, which are light under the canopy of a coastal forest.
The leaves are opposite, pointed and oval. The scent of its greenish-white flowers is sweet in the spring. The fruit develop in summer. They are black capsules, which split into two valves. When the seed capsule opens, it reveals only the dark seed tips held within an enlarged pulpy placenta.
Meaning: Trust in the space before words. Trust in the unknown. Hangehange allows a sensitivity to the presence of something different, an otherworldliness, a valve if you like between the dimensions, and it can swing open. This remedy leads you to self-acceptance, and a greater ability to accept others without the need to project or use your will to change them. Hangehange illuminates where there is illusion, showing up convoluted pathways and unnecessary complications.
