Being fully in the present; learning from the past while releasing it.
Patterns of imbalance:
Nostalgia; emotional attachment to the past, longing for what was.
Time is the current of the incarnated soul. If it does not navigate the stream of time, it drowns in the past or parches its future possibilities. The soul needing Honeysuckle flower essence stifles life force and denies its true evolution by living too much in past events, places and relationships.
Such a soul needs more inner flexibility and adaptability. Rather than face the challenge of change, it clings emotionally to a past which seems to have been more appealing. This perception is usually an illusion; for example, a past relationship or an earlier phase of one’s life can be glossed over with dreamy reverie, ignoring the actual pain and trauma that was part of the experience.
The lesson of Honeysuckle flower essence has to do with the soul’s perceptive faculties; being able to learn from previous life experiences by seeing clearly their meaning and message. When this occurs, it frees the soul to grow and change, to experience life with intention and purpose, as an ever unfolding present and ever-possible future.
