Bull thistle is the number one essence to help one deal with issues regarding authority and authority figures, and also for excessive tendency toward stubbornness or noncompliance. Such tendencies might arise from various causes, it could be naturally difficult for strong-minded children to adhere to family expectations of respect or compliance (at least some of the time...), and even as adults we sometimes carry patterns of rebellion that started out as rejection of excessive discipline during childhood years, but these patterns may not serve us in our adult lives if we are never able to tolerate authority (such as authority of a supervisor, college professor, or mentor). If we are never able to be a student, acolyte, we won't benefit from the learning and mentoring we could receive from such relationships.
