|Vervain Flower Essence:Positive
Ability to practice moderation, tolerance, and balance; "the middle way"; grounded idealism.
Patterns of imbalance:
Overbearing or intolerant behavior; over-enthusiasm or extreme fanaticism; nervous exhaustion from over-striving.
Vervain soul types naturally posses strong forces of passionate idealism. They give themselves
fully and completely to the work or cause in which they believe. However, they can become so convinced of the
rightness and urgency of their beliefs that their natural charismatic capacities degenerate into those of the
zealot or fanatic. Their true leadership ability is afflicted, for the Vervain flower essence type's incredible
intensity can overwhelm and prevent others from making their own energetic connection to the project or cause
which is being promoted.
Such an individual can be characterized as possessing not only great intensity but also
great physical tension, which results in many nervous and digestive problems, and in extreme cases may lead to
nervous breakdown. These persons are usually unaware of their true energy levels, and often push their bodies
completely beyond their natural capacities. I fact, there is very little connection to the physical body or to
the physical world, because this type lives so fervently in the world of ideas and ideals.
Vervain flower essence
is particularly an embodiment remedy, helping the soul to center and ground its tremendous enthusiasm. In this
way, the body becomes a natural regulator and harmonizer for the abundant spiritual forces which pour out of
such a person. When the fiery light of Vervain flower essence radiates through the medium of the body and the
physical world, it becomes more luminous and contained. Such soul ardor is able to inspire, lead, and heal others.
