Inner tranquility; emotional self-sufficiency.
Patterns of imbalance:
Over-talkative, self-absorbed; over-concerned with one’s own problems.
Heather flower essence helps those who become too absorbed in their own problems and worries. Such persons are deeply lonely and in great pain, but the seek contact with others in a dysfunctional manner. Feeling empty inside, the Heather type hopes to assuage its hunger by ‘feeding’ off the psychic attention and sympathy of others. In most cases this excessive self-concern repels others from forming a truly empathetic bond. Thus the Heather flower essence type becomes increasingly lonely and dysfunctional.
In extreme states, such a person may learn to manipulate psychic energy so that others are compelled to listen to and attend to their problems. Heather flower essence nourishes the soul’s feeling of profound emptiness so that it can become stronger within itself, and realize compassion. This is the key to experiencing love, for one is healed from one’s own suffering by learning to care for and perceive the suffering of others.
Heather flower essence heals the soul by reversing psychic currents of energy which are directed too strongly toward the Self. By learning to find itself in caring for others, the Heather soul becomes self-fulfilled rather than self-absorbed.
