State of Mind
In decisive new beginning phases of life one is insecure, fickle and easily influenced from the outside.
Children need walnut during their young life always at the entry into a new phase of life such as teething, the first day in kindergarten, the start of school, change of school, moving house, entering puberty and the like. They have to give up familiar and loved things and are therefore insecure and sensitive. Walnut helps with the emotional release, the children can feel safe and confident again and come to the insight that every new beginning always has beautiful things in store.
Walnut has a special position among the 38 Bach Flowers, because it is primarily used in special phases of life in which serious changes are imminent (divorce, new profession, emigration, climacteric, change of diet, retirement, preparation for death and much more). In negative walnut condition you are sitting in a boat, you can already see the other shore but the anchor is not yet raised. You are internally stressed and unstable and run the risk of being distracted from your decision by external influences.
You know what you want, but you are not mentally prepared to do it and at that moment you are your own worst enemy. One has decided to break with old habits, restrictions and limits, wants to leave old structures behind and start from scratch. This parting with old connections, thoughts, feelings, habits, life circumstances is always painful, one is still orienting oneself at times towards other people and their ideas, letting oneself be influenced by warners and sceptics. One lets oneself be unsettled by consideration for family, social conventions and the opinions of others.
