Dr. Bach's Description...
For those who have definite ideals and ambitions in life and are fulfilling them, but on rare occasions are tempted to be led away from their own ideas, aims and work by the enthusiasm, convictions or strong opinions of others. The remedy gives constancy and protection from outside influences.

But I don't like change. Why do we have to grow old and endure physical changes? I like being young and wrinkle free. If that is not bad enough, when I get an idea in my head about something like going off traveling, like clockwork someone tries to talk me out of it and ruins everything. On second thoughts, maybe they do have a point. I'm confused now.
Life is so full of changes as friends come and go. They either move away or get into bad habits, and I am left all alone. Everything was going so well.
Walnut, thank goodness for Walnut, the protector from change, distraction, influences; helping us to keep on the straight and narrow path. Change can be upsetting, but Walnut can assist by helping us to move on with confidence and the ability to walk away unscathed without looking back.
The big bold Walnut tree whose twisted branches that make an upward turn. Assisting us through the unpredictable twists and turns of life. Protecting us inside its hard shell from change and criticism.
