Muehlenbeckia complexa

Essence: Pōhuehue allows for a forward movement with deep purpose. This is realized through a playful response to life with a natural weave of mind and heart.

Use: This remedy is particularly helpful for clarifying a course of action when we feel confused. It is helpful when we become too caught up in our mind, are assumptive, overly critical or even paranoid. Pōhuehue invites us to become lighter in our outlook and open in our thinking.

Description: Pōhuehue plants form tangled climbing bushes that grow near the sea. It comes from the buckwheat family, a widely distributed family of plants. The leaves and stems are usually acrid or astringent. The stems are climbing, divaricating, interlacing and slender. The heart-shaped leaves are one to two centimetres long. The flowers are cream coloured and dioecious, forming into succulent white translucent fruit surrounding a black seed.

Meaning: Sometimes a remedy takes you by surprise and pōhuehue can be like this, for it acts upon our intuition. This remedy helps us to identify the overriding patterns and perceptions that we live by. It brings awareness to the assumptions we make about others or events. The ability to see our own negative thinking gives us the ability to change. This, in turn, leads to an exuberant response to life and an intensifying of perceptions. Pōhuehue also creates empathy, enabling you to get inside an object and experience it. The expansion that pōhuehue brings is through a sense of protection and safety, a sense of being connected to a good place within ourselves.
