Patterns of imbalance: Overly influenced by the beliefs and values of family or community, or by past experiences.
The human soul is akin to the plant in its patterns of growth. It grows slowly, almost imperceptibly from day to day, but therre are moments when it makes radical, metamorphic changes, moving beyond its current form to something utterly new. Thus the plant transforms from root, to shoot, to leaf, to flower, to fruit, to seed. Walnut flower essence is an important remedy for times of great life transition; it assists the soul in making metamorphic change. --Taken from Flower Essence Repertory by P. Kaminski and R. Katz
