|Red Chestnut Flower Essence:Positive
Caring for others with calm, inner peace, trust in the unfolding of life events.
Patterns of imbalance:
Obsessive fear and worry for well-being of others, fearful anticipation of problems for others.
care for another is a great virtue of the human soul. But this caring can cross the boundary of healthy compassion
and turn instead into negative worry and anxiety for another. This is particularly true in a family system or
other close relationship, when a parent or spouse is too closely identified with its role of caretaker, and thus
becomes unconsciously enmeshed in the psychic space of another.
Red Chestnut flower essence particularly addresses
the mental imbalances which this condition produces. It shows the soul how worry and concern drain the individual
of positive vital energy, and does little to help heal the actual situation. When the soul pulls back into its
own sphere of consciousness it can effectively anchor itself and become and agent for real healing. The greatest
of healing gifts which one can bestow upon another is the ability to radiate calm, loving thoughts. This unconditional
regard for another’s welfare is the great gift of Red Chestnut flower essence.
