Extract from The Twelve Healers and Other Remedies, by Dr. Edward Bach
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.
Indication: Living in the past
Honeysuckle is the remedy for people who do not pay sufficient attention to what is happening now with their minds and hearts fixed on the past. Say an individual has lost a parent or a close family relative and the grief causes constant reflection, sometimes trying so hard to remember every detail, that the interest in the present slips away. Honeysuckle can be of help at that time.Honeysuckle can let the person let go of the past and move to the future with ease.
I cherish the past and live in the present.
My today is more important.
