Spiritual surrender and trust, feeling guided and protected by a Higher Power; balance and equanimity despite extreme stress.
Patterns of imbalance:
Fear of losing control, or of mental and emotional breakdown; desperate, destructive impulses.
Cherry Plum flower essence – There are times when the soul has difficulty bearing the weight of its incarnation. The circumstances of life oppress and condense the soul, so that it literally feels that it cannot take any more pressure or stress. There is the fear that one will lose control and become erratic, destructive, or even suicidal or insane.
The soul tries to protect against this fear of losing control by tightening its grip, which only leads to more pressure and stress. At these extreme times, Cherry Plum flower essence is indicated. It helps the individual to re-connect with the Higher-Self, to surrender. Once the Self renews its trust in a Higher Power, the mind can then stabilize, and the individual feels the capacity to cope with life’s challenges again. Cherry Plum flower essence brings strength and encouragement, helping the soul to overcome its extreme tension and fear.
