Honeysuckle / Bach Flower Remedy - 20ml Liquid
Negative Aspects Treated: nostalgia – lives in the past, reflecting on past pleasures and glories, homesickness
Positive Outcomes: retain wisdom of past, whilst letting go of the experience
Honeysuckle is for over-attachment to past memories. People in need of Honeysuckle tend to live in the past, in a state of homesickness or nostalgia. They have regrets but are unable to change present circumstances since they are constantly looking back at the past. They may be attached to lost loved ones, or to happier days, or unable to get over unhappy past experiences. They find it difficult to get over bereavement and constantly refer to the past in conversation.
Honeysuckle can be very helpful to bereaved or redundant people, or to those who have failed in business and especially to older people who live alone.
The positive potential of Honeysuckle is the ability to live in the present, no longer experiencing the past as overpowering, but seeing it as valuable experience, providing lessons for today. The person can now move forward in life with no regrets. Ageing is accepted as a natural process.
In Dr. Bach's words:
"Those who live much in the past, perhaps a time of great happiness, or memories of a lost friend, or ambitions which have not come true. They do not expect further happiness such as they have had."
