In Essence: CONTENTMENT
Agrimony is for people who put a brave face on their troubles.
“I have a sense of peace within myself. It is safe for me to show myself to others as I really am. I release all worries of the past.” ~ Reiki Master Astrid Lee
Agrimony (Agrimony Eupatoria)
"The jovial, cheerful, humorous people who love peace and are distressed by argument or quarrel, to avoid which they will agree to give up much.
Though generally they have troubles and are tormented and restless and worried in mind or in body, they hide their cares behind their humor and jesting and are considered very good friends to know.
They often take alcohol or drugs in excess, to stimulate them and help themselves bear their trials with cheerfulness." – Dr. Edward Bach
Agrimony ~ Bach Flower Remedies for Children & Adults
People who need Agrimony often appear care-free and humorous, but their ‘joie de vivre’ is just a mask for the anxieties, worries and even real inner-torment, which they may be trying to conceal from themselves as well as others.
They dislike being alone and are very sociable, seeking company as a distraction.
If in pain or discomfort, they are likely to joke about it, unwilling to express their real fears.
They try to ignore the darker side of life, and prefer to make light of things rather than enter into a confrontation. They may also suffer from restlessness at night, with churning thoughts (see also White Chestnut).
Agrimony people may suppress their discomfort with the aid of heavy drinking, or the use of drugs or comfort eating.
Agrimony helps them express their anxieties, pain, fears and worries. Moreover, their cheerfulness will come from within, instead of covering up pain and worries.
The positive potential of Agrimony is for those who are genuinely cheerful and good company, communicate their real feelings openly and can accept that life has its less pleasant side.
Their cheerfulness stems from a real sense of self-acceptance and inner joy; they see problems in perspective and are diplomatic peace makers.
