Walnut Bach Flower: For change & protection from outside influence
Walnut is a very special Bach flower remedy. It can be helpful for all people at different times in their lives. It has two facets to it.
Firstly, this flower remedy is helpful for those who are sensitive to outside influence, who have specific ambitions or a thought out path in life but are easily led astray or pushed off track by other people (particularly those with strong opinions) or circumstances.
Secondly, this remedy is helpful during times of change, such as puberty, menopause, moving house, marriage, having children, divorce, grief…. There are many times in life when we go through times of change. Whenever you’re going through a period of change, Walnut can help ease the way and provide stability and consistency. Change can be stressful and you can feel uncertain or unsettled. Walnut will provide some stability.
Walnut relates specifically to our ability to let go of the past and move forward in new beginnings. Dr Bach wrote about Walnut that it is “the remedy for those who have decided to take a great step forward in life, to break old conventions, to leave old limits and restrictions and start on a new way.” If you’re in the negative state of Walnut, you hesitate to move forward into this new beginning and get diverted by outside influences or you can’t let go of old ways.
In the positive state, you will be able to set yourself free from old habits and move forward positively in a new direction unaffected by outside influences.
