Anagallis arvensis For those who are emotionally trapped by others, often with a psychic dependence. There are two states the flower deals with - either being obsessed or being “possessed” by someone else. In either case they are unable to break free, even though they may realize that the relationship is unsatisfactory and probably very bad for them. There may well be strong psychic bonds originating from the dominant person. These can be difficult to break as this person usually has a lot to gain from the possessive relationship. Often there is a deep-rooted fear in the victim of breaking free from this connection in case it leaves them void and desolate. In addition, they know that they will have to face the anger of the other person. Domination by others saps our will-power and subverts our energies. The process frequently starts when someone seems to offer us something that we want or feel we need - for example, love, sex, money or spiritual growth. We fail to see that sometimes the person offering us these things is, in some way, a predator, and that we may well become a victim if we fall under their spell. Scarlet Pimpernel works at a hidden level, enabling us to disconnect the ties that bind us and to gain sufficient power to break free. Early Purple Orchid may well be helpful if taken at the same time. This will help to open up the energy channels to the changes that are taking place.
