Chamaenerion angustifolium For times of major upheaval when we feel disoriented and lost. Rosebay Willowherb is the essence needed when we seem to be blown about by every wind of change. When we seem to be at the mercy of the world around us, impotent in the face of external circumstances, we can feel deeply depressed and confused. When this happens there is usually a complete lack of earthing energy. Like the down of the Willowherb in the autumn, we are blown hither and thither by the forces that surround us. We feel very unsure of ourselves and of the world around us. We find ourselves confused about where we are in life and what we should be doing. Nothing seems stable and reliable any more. The essence of Willowherb helps us to root ourselves firmly in the world and our present situation. It gives us stability and strength. Only when we are stable and quiet can we truly evaluate the situation that we find ourselves in. Willowherb also helps us to energize our new-found stability so that we can then go out into the world with renewed confidence. The essence of Mediterranean Sage may well be helpful if taken at the same time.
