|Agrimony Flower Essence:Positive
Emotional honesty, acknowledging and working with emotional pain, obtaining
true inner peace.
Patterns of imbalance:
Anxiety hidden by a mask of cheerfulness; denial and avoidance of emotional pain, addictive behavior
to anesthetize feelings.
The Agrimony flower essence personality appears happy, enthusiastic, popular and seemingly at peace with the world. However,
if one is able to know such a person on a deeper level, it becomes clear that something is deeply troubling the
soul. At the heart of such suffering is a secret torment that is hidden, not only from others, but most importantly
from the Self. There may be a strong attraction to drugs, particularly alcohol, in order to maintain the mask
Such persons have often been raised with strict social conventions of politeness or repression, and find it difficult
to show or admit vulnerability or pain. This conditioning is particularly strong in men who have been taught
that it is unmanly to show feelings. Another variation of this attitude appears among those on a spiritual path
who try to emulate a state of bliss by denying or repressing troubling emotions. The Agrimony flower essence person
needs to find peace as an inner soul reality, rather than an outside state of behavior which others need to validate.
it is thier lesson that true inner peace comes from honestly acknowledging pain and transforming it, rather than
masking it with a superficial veneer of good cheer or polite tolerance. Such is the lesson of Agrimony flower essence.
