Star of Bethlehem - The Second Chance

Star of Bethlehem for women

Star of Bethlehem is the appropriate remedy for the treatment of after-effects of the birth trauma - for both mother and child. Sometimes the start in life does not run smoothly, instead rather traumatic and with the help of surgical instruments. Although they may be necessary, they always bring along a frightening aspect. Most of the ones who had a bumpy start in life do recover, but some of them unconsciously carry this trauma and keep it hidden throughout their lives and wonder again and again what is wrong with them. Perhaps they develop negative beliefs and thoughtforms like being unwanted or seeing the world as a most dangerous place which requires to stay alert and on guard all the time. Although Star of Bethlehem can not make the trauma undone, this flower can bring relief, realignment and new hope.

The mother’s trauma may have similar effects. It happens that births drag on agonizingly long and yet have to be abbreviated with the scalpel. Sometimes an episiotomy must be made or there is a perineal laceration, which can cause after-effects women can suffer from for a long time, for example, in the form of nightmares. Once the woman gets pregnant again there is the danger that all her fears and pain of the previous birth return and are mentally replayed like a broken record so she has to go through the suffering again and again. Star of Bethlehem helps her to leave the pain in the past and lets her confidently and joyfully look forward to the birth of her next child.
In addition, this essence has proven to be helpful with painful menstruation.
