Agrimony is the Bach Flower Essence for anguish or distress behind a happy or brave face– a pretended easy-going nature covering repressed worries or fears.
This remedy is very familiar to me: As a “Southern Woman” I was always taught to “Smile; don’t let anyone know there’s something wrong,” no matter what might be going on. It actually took me a couple of years of studying the Bach Remedies before I realized how badly I needed this one.
I had become so good at the deception, I was even fooling myself.
A person in a negative Agrimony state doesn’t generally like confrontation: they will do much to keep the situation peaceful, even to the point of self-sacrifice. They downplay their own hardships, not wanting to create distress for others. The hospital patient who entertains the medical staff is probably a negative Agrimony personality!
This trait usually develops in childhood. A sensitive child wanting to please well-meaning adults will learn to push down her own feelings and give the “correct” response. Continuous repression will lead to an inner restlessness, because this truly is a lapse of integrity in a person who despises incongruencies.
Internal restlessness may express itself in self-destructive habits like nail-biting or hair-pulling, or even very serious (health threatening) behaviors of “cutting” and eating disorders (anorexia, bulemia).
Some of the positive potentials in releasing this negative state:
- ability to deal with confrontation
- authentic inner joy
- true optimism
- skillful diplomat and peacemaker
Agrimony helps you to stand in Your Power and acknowledge what is True.
