Patterns of imbalance: Feeling persecuted or sorry for oneself; inability to bear lifes difficult circumstances.
The soul lesson of Penstemon is reminiscent of the biblical story of Job, where unusually harsh or severe life circumstances test the souls uttermost faith and tenacity. Those who need Penstemon seem to have been dealt an unfair blow in life; they may be born handicapped or become physically impaired through an accident. They may have lost a loved one, home, or possessions through a criminal act of violence or a natural catastrophe. Such souls have good reason to feel victimized; yet, in these moments of sorrow and pain, the soul must have the courage to rebuild itself and the faith to trust in a higher power. --Taken from Flower Essence Repertory by P. Kaminski and R. Katz
