Aspen — Flower Essence for Fears and Anxieties of an Unknown Cause

A person is aware that they are afraid but does not know why or of what. The person is aware of excessive sweating of the face and body, hair standing on end, the body shaking and of course, an intense feeling of fear.

”I do not know what’s wrong with me. I have an awful feeling that something very bad is about to happen.”

An end result of repeated Aspen-fear attacks is a chronic case of impending anxiety, diarrhea, knots in the stomach and loss of appetite, insomnia, fear of another attack of fear. Chronic anxiety significantly impairs the ability of all of the organs in the body to function properly. It is an extremely uncomfortable feeling!

This fear jeopardizes the very foundation of existence and survival of an Aspen person. A person cannot run away from an Aspen fear, they cannot save themselves by avoiding situations because the situation itself is not the cause of Aspen fear. This fear stems from the impaired boundaries between our experience of what’s real and what’s unreal, between what really exists and the unknown.

There are two types of boundaries:

a. Psychological or personal boundaries

— ”Up to this point is me and from here on are my surroundings, the outside world.”

A psychological boundary has been violated in situations when someone gets too close, in your face, which can occur, for example, on a crowded bus. Situations like that make us feel uncomfortable and we feel the need to move away.

b. The boundary between the material world and the unknown (dreams, imagination, surrounding energies, illusions). When this boundary is violated, two things can happen: one is that a person can become apprehensive, have a sense of foreboding. In other words, they seem to be seeing something or be aware of something that is not possible to register with their senses. Additionally, when this boundary is seriously violated, the person can no longer tell the difference between their hallucinations, delusions, dreams and reality, which is a characteristic of mental illness, psychosis. To them this becomes reality. Generally speaking, the person cannot distinguish between dreams and reality.

This occurrence, although less severe, can be seen in young children (up to four years of age) upon waking, when a part of their being still remains immersed in their dreams. That type of confusion often manifests as weeping and sobbing, lasting a short time and then simply disappearing. This type of behavior can occur in teenagers or adults and we usually say that they should be ’avoided’ until fully awake.

Aspen will cover and eliminate fears that arise from our superstitions.

In my professional experience, I have noticed very fast results from Aspen. Within two days, the first effects of one’s recovering are visible, people are consolidated and regained a healthy common sense and the confidence in themselves and their lives. They fall asleep easier and have a more peaceful sleep. The intensity and number of Aspen anxiety attacks diminishes significantly even when they take the first treatment bottle, until eventually, attacks disappear completely. Children can also have Aspen anxiety which is most frequently manifested in dreams, when they ask to sleep with the lights on in their room or in their parents’ bed. It can even manifest during the day with unexplained trembling, wide-open eyes, indifference and asking to sit in their parents’ or childcare givers lap.
