Chestnut Bud / Bach Flower Remedy -10ml Liquid
Chestnut Bud is for failure to learn by experience, leading to an inability to make progress in life. The person keeps repeating the same mistakes, such as falling over again and again for the wrong partner, or continuing to work in an unsuitable job. Instead of learning from past mistakes, Chestnut Bud people try to forget them and therefore have no basis on which to make future decisions. They may suffer recurrent ailments but never question why they keep returning and thus fail to deal with the root cause.
Positive potential: The positive Chestnut Bud personality observes his or her own mistakes with objectivity, and learns from every experience, gaining knowledge and wisdom so as to move forward in life. Mentally active, he or she also observes and learns from others.
In Dr. Bach's words:
"For those who do not take full advantage of observation and experience, and who take a longer time than others to learn the lessons of daily life. Whereas one experience would be enough for some, such people find it necessary to have more, sometimes several, before the lesson is learnt. Therefore, to their regret, they find themselves having to make the same error on different occasions when once would have been enough, or observation of others could have spared them even that one fault."
“This remedy is to help us to take full advantage of daily experiences and to see ourselves and our mistakes as others do.”
