Have you lost your joie-de-vivre?

Do you feel that today is just like yesterday all over again?
Do you feel like your life is beginning to resemble the movie ‘Groundhog Day’?
Has your life lost is zest?
Do you remember the last time you felt a sense of vibrant spiritual vitality?

The Bach Flower Remedy Hornbeam is often referred to as the remedy that helps remove procrastination.
Did you know it also works on a far deeper and more subtle level?

Hornbeam helps people who live too much in their heads find their balance in their physical being.

“The Hornbeam weariness is a state of exhaustion
arising from one-sided demands on the mental level
with no way to balance things physically…”
~ from Mechthild Scheffer’s
The Encyclopedia of Bach Flower Therapy.

Examples of people who may need Hornbeam include:

  • students who have been studying hard for months, and haven’t had time to enjoy a little exercise;
  • office workers who work long hours at their computer all day, watch tv in the evenings, and don’t have time to enjoy the outdoors;
  • people who spend most of their time in thoughts, in mental activity, and in intellectual pursuits;
  • people who take in so much information they feel their head is heavy;
  • people whose lives have become automated as they follow the same routine day after day.

People who need Hornbeam feel that their life has lost all its juiciness – life has become a regimented list of duties that must be fulfilled, with no time left for fun. They feel tired at the mere thought of all they need to do each day.

Hornbeam helps you find the balance between tension and relaxation.

Hornbeam helps you hear the guidance of your Higher Self, and listen to its whispers. Your Higher Self will help you see spontaneous opportunities for fun, and help you allow relaxation and down time in to your world. In this way, when you return to your work it will be with a sense of renewal and refreshment, and your revitalised creativity will transform duties into joy.

Let Hornbeam help you create a life you love, and one that you feel is worth living.

  1. Thank you for sharing Andrea. Hornbeam is SO useful!
    Sometimes it was just too hard for me to find any time for myself. I used the advice and experience of good friends as well as flower essences blends and what I call “my magic pills”, ie homeopathic remedies.
    And now I can even find time to meditate (sometimes) 😉

    I am looking forward to reading your next posts
