Ease your fears with the Bach Flowers
Everyone has experienced some fearful emotion, whether it is a nagging anxious thought, anxiety, or extreme terror, at some point in their lives.
The definition of fear is “an unpleasant emotion caused by the threat of danger, pain or harm.”
There are a variety of fears and a corresponding Bach Remedy that help us to rebalance: known (Mimulus), terror (Rock Rose), for the welfare of others (Red Chestnut), unknown (Aspen), of loss of self-control (Cherry Plum)
Vague unknown fears, for which there can be given no explanation, no reason. Yet the patient may be terrified of something terrible going to happen, he knows not what. These vague unexplainable fears may haunt by night or day. Sufferers often are afraid to tell their trouble to others. The Twelve Healers and Other Remedies by Dr. Bach
After waking up with a start from a nightmare, hot and sweaty, there is a foreboding sense of uneasiness. What was all that about? I won’t be able to get back to sleep now. Why am I so tense? Chills are going up and down my spine, my hands are trembling, and my heart is racing at 100 miles per hour. I don’t know why I feel this way, but have a feeling something bad is going to happen. What, I do not know. I hate feeling like this! Please go away, fearful thoughts.
Sometimes life seems to present itself with worrying thoughts, out of nowhere, making my heart sink to my toes. The worst thing is, I cannot put my finger on it, but I know something bad is going to happen.
Thank you Aspen, for helping me get through this. I welcome the inner peace and tranquility. I am now ready for the world and whatever it may bring my way. No fear is too great. Bring it on!
The tall Aspen tree whispers in the wind as though it is trembling with fear, and consequently makes a spooky rustling sound. The leaves flutter in the slightest breeze as though to warn us that something bad is going to happen. The larger male and smaller female catkins grow on different trees and appear before the leaves. The catkins are soft and fluffy, just like a lamb’s tail.
