Protect yourself from fears with St. John’s Wort flower essence.
Who is immune to fear?
Nobody, and collectively we all face fear on a daily basis in a variety of forms.
Some fears are minor and conscious, but many can be deep-seated subconscious fears that can cause anxiety, panic attacks, autoimmune diseases, depression, cardiovascular disease, paranoia, etc. (the list is long).
Either way, fear can be detrimental to our physical, mental and emotional health.
Physiologically, fear sends our bodies into a fight-or-flight response which is a natural and critical survival mechanism when dealing with stress and danger in our environment, such as fighting a bear. Our heartbeat and respiration accelerate, our pupils dilate, and our faces can become pale or super flushed. For most of us, our bodies will also tremble.
However, some perceived or subconscious fears can actually blind us to our reality. That is when fear gets in the way of us living our lives completely and fully experiencing the passion, joy, and love that is all around us.
How can St John’s Wort flower essences help?
St. John’s Wort is a woody-stemmed plant with bright yellow, five-petaled blossoms.
When made into a liquid extract, St. John’s Wort flower essence can be used as an herbal remedy to assist us in separating reality from all the false fear-based stories we tend to create in our heads.
“What if I fail on the test and disappoint my father?”
“How can I find someone to share a life with me, with all my flaws?”
“Will I be abandoned at a nursing home by my children?”
Though these are legitimate and ordinary fears we all encounter, some situations cause us to also create fear-based stories in our subconscious. These perceived fears are the ones that can be impacting our lives in ways we cannot even imagine.
This essence is universally used as a stimulant to help release any hidden or noticeable fear or paranoia, including fears from past life experiences. In this way, St. John’s Wort flower essence can be a valuable tool while undergoing psychoanalysis.
Furthermore, this potent essence is beneficial to those who are highly sensitive or empaths who tend to absorb other’s energies. St. John’s acts as a shield protecting us from external thoughts and feelings.
This essence’s usefulness does not end here as it is also highly effective for a variety of sleep disturbances such as insomnia, nightmares, night-time incontinence and sweats.
How to take St. John’s Wort flower essence.
The most common indication is to take 4 drops of St. John’s Wort flower essence, 4 times daily until symptoms have ceased.
To speed the process of healing, I also suggest taking baths with the essence prior to bedtime. If a bath is not an option, a foot soak with warm water will do the trick.
The essence will help with grounding and protect you from internal and external energies.
