Pine ~ Bach Flower Remedies for Adults
Pine in indicated for people who feel full of guilt and self-reproach; they blame themselves for other people’s mistakes and, indeed, for anything that goes wrong. They feel undeserving and unworthy. Their guilt complex and sense of shame is not necessarily based on any actual wrong-doing but destroys the possibility of joy in living.
These people appear humble and apologetic; they will apologize for being ill and may feel they deserve their illness of pain.
The positive potential of Pine allows people to accept responsibility realistically and to have sound judgment. Positive Pine people accept and respect themselves as they would others, without exaggeratedly negative judgment.
In relation to Pine, Dr Bach wrote ‘… One trace of condemnation against ourselves, or others, is a trace of condemnation against the Universal Creation of Love, and restricts us, limits our power to allow the Universal Love to flow through us to others.’
