|Elm Flower Essence:Positive
Joyous service, faith and confidence to complete one's task.
Patterns of imbalance:
Overwhelmed by duties and responsibilities, feeling unequal to the task required.
Elm flower essence - The healthy soul expresses itself by wanting to care for and serve others, but at times
this positive altruistic impulse can be stymied. Becoming responsible requires that one rightly asses one's
'ability to respond'. Over-perfectionist or unrealistic goals can result in fatigue and overwhelm at a later
point when the individual is simply unable to measure up to the tasks assumed.
Feelings of self-doubt, despondency and deep feelings of loneliness can set it when the soul feels it must face
an overwhelming task relying solely on its own ego forces. It is necessary at these times to shift the identity
from that of hero or rescuer to an alignment with the true energy and inspiration of the Higher Self. In this
way, the individual is able to receive help from others and from the spiritual world. Elm flower essence balances
the natural leadership capacities within the soul, especially by integrating these with the true directives
of the Higher Self.
