Bach Flower Remedy: Mimulus And Nervousness

The Bach flower remedy Mimulus stands for courage inside of you. Someone who needs Mimulus is nervous of so many things – things they have to do, things they have to face. These are not nameless fears of something that is outside of the real world. This fear is very real and it is fear of everyday very real happenings. Very often, you won’t ever suspect that someone who is otherwise perfectly normal can be so nervous and scared about anything, but certain events and activities can reduce these people to a trembling nervous mass. It is the fear of anticipation,of what will happen and in their minds, it is always the worst case scenario that they expect to happen.


Physical

More often than not, they are like any regular person you see around. When faced with something they fear however, you can see what they feel so clearly. They might fidget, stammer or stutter, blush sometimes and even shake with fear. It can be a bit disconcerting to see an otherwise normal man degenerate into a bundle of nerves but remember, he can’t help it. He could be scared of flying, riding in an elevator or scared to speak in public. In a child, it could be the fear of going to school or answering a teacher’s questions. There are so many fears these people have – fear of mice, of pain, of the dark, of getting reprimanded or caught by the law, of being pulled up by teachers or by seniors in the workplace….the list goes on. Mimulus helps him face his fears and overcome them.

Mental

His fear makes him paranoid and he just cannot get over it no matter how much he tells himself he is being stupid, This makes him tense and this mental stress takes its toll with headaches and irritability, Mimulus helps him to relax his mind and confidence slowly makes its way in. It is so hard when the mind is obsessed with fear and trembling of of the worst possible things that could happen. Mimulus brings calm and a certain degree of rationality to the person.

Emotional

He could be nervous about emotional commitments too. So when it comes to relationships, he could get tongue-tied which could leave his love life in a rather sorry state. The nervousness could also come on because of a fear of outbursts, of angry scenes around him or people who lose control. Mimulus makes him emotionally stronger and helps him to be detached from things that do not concern him and should not affect him.

Spiritual

There could be a fear of death as well – not a nameless dread of what comes after but just the thought of death. Or, if the person is very religious, there’s a nervousness of not doing what they feel their religion teaches them to do. Mimulus makes them think for themselves and be practical. It puts commonsense into a person along with courage.

RGraf - I've given it to so many people and it's worked. Like many holistic and gentle-acting medicines, it takes time to heal though the positive effects can be felt almost immediately. Thanks for reading.

Candie - thanks - I do appreciate you reading all the hubs! There are 38 flower remedies and one combination Rescue Remedy - so some way to go still :)

chandanakumar - thank you.

I shall get a snack and a margarita (man I'm sounding like an alcoholic these days) LOL and snuggle in for the rest of them!  My little travel case is here, and we're stockpiling for the end of the world, cuz people are gonna have "issues"!! I appreciate the work you put into these. It's not just a "set of symptoms" These symptoms spill over into every facet of life, and the lives of people we touch.  Great work Shalini!
