Pine / Bach Flower Remedy - 20ml Liquid
Negative Aspects Treated: guilt, self reproach, over conscientious; feels unworthy; takes blame for others mistakes
Positive Outcomes: balanced sense of responsibility; does not dwell on mistakes made
Pine is indicated for people who feel full of guilt and self-reproach; they blame themselves for other people's mistakes and, indeed, for anything that goes wrong. They feel undeserving and unworthy. Their guilt complex and sense of shame is not necessarily based on any actual wrong-doing but destroys the possibility of joy in living.
These people appear humble and apologetic; they will apologise for being ill and may feel they deserve their illness of pain.
The positive potential of Pine allows people to accept responsibility realistically and to have sound judgement. Positive Pine people accept and respect themselves as they would others, without exaggeratedly negative judgements. In relation to Pine, Dr Bach wrote '... One trace of condemnation against ourselves, or others, is a trace of condemnation against the Universal Creation of Love, and restricts us, limits our power to allow the Universal Love to flow through us to others.'
In Dr. Bach's words:
"For those who blame themselves. Even when successful they think that they could have done better, and are never content with their efforts or the results. They are hard-working and suffer much from the faults they attach to themselves. Sometimes if there is any mistake it is due to another, but they will claim responsibility even for that."
