Red Foxglove

The essence

Red Foxglove exempts from self- or externally-determined internal boundaries that manifest in the heart area as emotional tightness or opression. They can be triggered by loss of a loved one through death or the end of a relationship, but also by deceit, lies and intrigue. Has one‘s trust been abused by a close one, the result goes deeper than just disappointment. In affairs of the heart, our emotional center responds sensitively.

Symptoms of sadness and resignation, closing off, turning away from others, excluding any further opportunity to gain new confidence - all this serves one‘s own protection but yet it is directed against oneself. What we do not use - muscles, brain or emotions - will fade away. A heart that forbids love is in serious danger.

Red Foxglove

Red Foxglove can exceed internal limits. The essence expands the thinking (i.e. helps to recognize opportunities as such) into unexpected areas. When you are locked and isolated, the inner bonds can be unshackled. Only in this way we can reach new possibilities. Do not let defeats of the past ruin the future. And never let the pain of past dominate your current relationship. If find that difficult, perhaps you should give Red Foxglove a try.
