The soul lesson of Penstemon is reminiscent of the biblical story of Job, where unusually harsh or severe life
circumstances test the soul’s uttermost faith and tenacity. Those who need Penstemon flower essence seem
to have been dealt an unfair blow in life; they may have been born handicapped or become physically impaired
through an accident. They may have lost a loved one, home, or possessions through a criminal act of violence
or a natural catastrophe.
Such souls have good reason to feel victimized; yet in these moments of sorrow and
pain, the soul must have the courage to rebuild itself and the faith to trust in a higher power. Penstemon flower
essence has enormous strengthening powers, enabling the soul to tap into reservoirs of courage and resilience
which are normally inaccessible to human consciousness. At its deepest level of transformation. Penstemon essence
shows the soul that it has freely chosen even the harshest circumstances for its growth and evolution.
