Bach Flower Remedy: Wild Rose and Apathy


The Bach flower remedy Wild Rose, in its negative state, manifests itself in an attitude of apathy and dis-spiritedness. They are just resigned to their fate, never believing that things could get better and so they just go with the flow, not in joy but with the feeling that there is no other option.

Physical

They are rather boring people, with no interest in anything that goes on around them. This makes them quite unpopular or it might make people in a group ignore them, leaving them to their apathy. Wild Rose gives them the energy to be able to take an interest in people and things and to be a part of what is going on around them.

Mental

Sometimes, a Wild Rose negative state could be temporary, when the energy flowing through the body is low, especially after an illness. It feels like they have reached the limit of what they can do and they settle into a state of non-doing. Wild Rose helps them to feel involved again.

Emotional

Emotionally, too, one needs to be very participative if one has to keep relationships going. These people are just not active enough and their passivity is often the reason for relationships going sour. It’s almost like they are in an emotional vacuum and have nothing to give to make love grow. Wild Rose may be needed over a long period of time to make the heart open up and love the way it should.

Spiritual

They are not seekers so how will they find? There is a kind of hopelessness when it comes to the soul and he does not try to make things better. Wild Rose makes him become more active in his spiritual life, urging him to look for answers inside his soul.

I can identify with this, in fact. I think it is because sometimes being beaten down and beaten down leaves one with the sense that seeking is of no use. And yet there is that curiosity that doesn't die out. That inner state which is untouchable. The spiritual retreat into vast energies within. It sometimes appears to be boring passivity, yet what lies behind the surface is buzzing with activity, interacting with molecules beyond this world of pain and disconnection. Perhaps this is simply craziness in the making, haha. Worlds of our own amid worlds we cannot control. Before I get carried away, I must run to the store for some Wild Rose, lol!!!

Well, dear friend - looks like we crossed each other! Thanks as always for reading. Yes, I agree, just when you seem to reach rock bottom, those hidden springs could come flowing out. I do believe there is a world beyond and that it lies within - I guess enlightenment is all about discovering it :)

Shalini, you have so many wonderful mood settling suggestions and a readership that, I'm sure, benefits from your knowledge. Wild Roses and apathy didn't really come home to me. Thank goodness. Don White

Shalini, it was funny, wasn't it? We were reading each other's hubs in the same moment. Serendipitus- is that a word? lol

Shalini, sorry if I can't leave this one alone. But I once mentioned another group of flower essences called Green Hope Farms and I thought I would look at its reference to Wild Rose Essence. I finally found the book and here is what it says about Wild Rose:

I AM the joyous abandon of Innocence.

"The farmer, who owned this land until 1986, tried an experimental idea to plant Wild Roses for fencing. As an agricultural innovation, the Roses proved a bust. They would not stay contained in hedgerows. In the years since, much farmland in the surrounding hills and valleys has become awash with these rambling Roses. One lovely beauty, with its delicate cascades of single, small white blossoms appeared almost overnight in our farm's Rose garden and announced itself with this comment: 'I canna abide confinement in hedgerows and gardens. I drape myself over fences and branches at woodland edges. I delight in unmowed places. I come to demonstrate and encourage each of you to let go the self-censorship and self-judgment that comes as you canna fully follow expectations. You just fearlessly trust and express the unchangeable joyous perfection that is you.' Yes, it really does have aScottish accent!"

Storytellersrus - that is such a wonderful description! 'I canna abide confinement'....no wonder they were called rambling roses! I guess joy cannot and should not be confined. Thank you so much for quoting this here!
