Emotional group

Over-sensitivity

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 fifth group comprises feelings of over-sensitivity.

Personalities in this state are extremely sensitive to beliefs, ideas and moods of others. For various reasons, they tend to be overly susceptible to the feelings and impacts of others and allow external influences to guide them. Four Bach Flowers help to increase the focus on own strengths and needs:  N°1: AgrimonyN°4: CentauryN°15: HollyN°33: Walnut

N°1: Agrimony

Agrimony
Agrimony - Empowering phrase

I accept what I am, I live what I am, I appreciate what I am.

Agrimony - Affirmation

Leave behind repressed problems and false cheerfulness and find unfeigned and genuine love of life.

Even if there is a thunderstorm raging inside his soul, this character type presents himself to the outside world with a beaming smile.

He is caught in himself and suffers from a permanent imbalance between his true emotional state and the cheerfulness he pretends.

Every distraction comes handy to this person, so that he can avoid dealing with his inner unrest.

Sometimes, drugs or intoxicants are used to ease emotional conflicts or pain.

With a lot of effort, harmony can be maintained in every situation. The characters concerned receive dissonant vibes immediately when dealing with other people and can thus avoid any potential conflict.

This is how the flower helps:

Personal insecurities and gloomy thoughts can be accepted and tackled thanks to the agrimony. The inner tension dissolves, because the need to play carefree disappears.

N°4: Centaury

Centaury
Centaury- Empowering phrase

I know what I want, I say what I want, I pursue what I want.

Centaury - Affirmation

Leave the pressure to conform and excessive permissiveness behind and find self-confident expression and self-assertion.

Good-heartedness and helpfulness become an obsession and turn into submissiveness.

People in this state cannot say no. They are always prepared to help when asked for and often do not realize that they are actually completely overburdened.

These characters sacrifice themselves for others to the point of self-abandonment.

Those concerned are often other-directed. To avoid conflicts, they keep their opinion to themselves and bend to other people’s will.

They do not know how to distance themselves from others and lead a life full of submissiveness.

This is how the flower helps

Owing to the centaury, the own interests and limits can be perceived. Self-determination and willpower are gained by articulating and asserting personal needs.

N°15: Holly

Holly
Holly- Empowering phrase

I let go of the heat of anger and open my heart for myself and all others.

Holly - Affirmation

Leave an upset, annoyed and unloving attitude towards yourself and others behind and find a cheerful and friendly sociability.

The heart is cold and cannot feel love.

As the personality concerned is not susceptible to love, he responds to others with suspicion, jealousy, envy and mistrust. He believes that nobody is well-disposed towards him.

Whoever leads his life like this cannot be hurt but can hardly rejoice either.

These characters are often aggressive and irritable. They easily go up the wall, even though the vis-à-vis does not mean ill. Wherever they appear, they spread fretfulness or even fear.

This is how the flower helps

The holly helps to feel the attention of others and to be able to accept it. More and more often,  fellow men can be met with friendliness instead of hate or anger.

N°33: Walnut

Walnut
Walnut- Empowering phrase

I am free, take the next step and start anew.

Walnut - Affirmation

Leave persuasibility and credulity behind and find self-realization and a fresh start.

It is hard to stay focused on personal goals while embarking on a new path.

When a new beginning is on the horizon and he must leave his comfort zone, this character type is overly susceptible to outside influences, even though he knows his way and where he wants to go.

As he is easily unsettled by unfamiliar situations, he allows others to lead him astray and thus loses sight of his own target.

Those concerned have a hard time breaking their habits and be true to themselves when starting a new phase in life.

This is how the flower helps

The walnut supports people in following their own instincts instead of other people’s opinions when breaking new grounds.
