Emotional group

Loneliness

Dr. Bach distinguishes seven emotional groups which 38 Bach Flowers can be assigned to. The Bach Flower Groups categorize the states of character flaws which the Bach Flowers can help to overcome. The fourth group comprises feelings of loneliness.

 

Feelings of loneliness and isolation can be reflected in many different ways of behavior. The reasons why a personality feels alone and cut off from the outside world are just as manifold as the consequences thereof. Dr. Bach recommends three flowers which strengthen the feeling of connectedness with others: N°14: Heather, N°18: ImpatiensN°34: Water Violet

N°14: Heather

Heather
Heather - Empowering phrase

I am compassionate, I give attention to others and receive attention

Heather - Affirmation

Leave an insatiable hunger for recognition and a fixation on yourself behind and find humility and sensitive openness towards others.

This person believes the world revolves around him just like the earth circles the sun.

Characters concerned are convinced that nothing is more important than themselves. They always long to be the center of attention and do not let others get a word in edgeways. Quite often, they paint an idealized picture of themselves to obtain admiration and love.

The obsession with themselves further manifests itself in that they attach far too much importance to their own problems. Thus, the craving for recognition easily turns into self-pity.

Characters in this state do not only want to participate in everything, they want to be the center of the action and the general attention.

This is how the flower helps

Thanks to the heather, fellow man are no longer only perceived as audience. The character concerned learns to detach himself from his problems and his inflated need for recognition and to reach out to others.

Impatiens - Empowering phrase

I take my time, I am patient and relaxed.

Impatiens - Affirmation

Leave inner flurry and tension behind and find a balanced daily rhythm.

Quick, quick, there is no time to lose!

The personality in this restless state is very impatient and hectic. The uneasiness is reflected in strained and hasty thinking, acting, moving, talking and reacting. Fellow men can hardly keep up with this speed.

As things cannot happen fast enough for this impatient character, he often feels irritated by others. He cannot understand that other people need or sometimes even consciously take more time than he does.

Due to his rash acting and over-hasty decisions, this person tends to make mistakes which could have been prevented if he had been more considerate.

Water Violet - Empowering phrase

I am a part of this world, connected to it and feel embraced by it.

Water Violet - Affirmation

Leave the position of retreat and isolation behind and find emotional closeness and amicable relationship.

The lonely wolf roams through the forests and lets nobody come close.

This character type isolates himself from his fellow men and often acts taciturn, reserved or dismissive. Others cannot get through to him. For the personality concerned, it is of utmost important to keep his personal freedom and independence.

Instead of looking for an exchange with others, this excluded person rather solves his issues by himself. He often feels left out of interpersonal situations or even as an eccentric. And yet he would love to leave his social isolation sometimes.

 

 

This is how the flower helps

Water Violet strengthens the feeling of being related to others. The personality can build amicable relationships without believing his inner freedom is in danger.
