“As a child, Sharon had been sensitive to light. Even today the sun hurts her eyes, and she is forced to wear sunglasses, even on moderately sunny days. Sharon can’t stay out in the sun as she burns easily. Interestingly, Sharon equally suffers when there isn’t enough light as on a cloudy day, or even more in the winter when she suffers from Seasonal Affective Disorder. Sharon also suffers from over active dreams and nightmares. When she was younger she often wet the bed. Now she sometime wakes up in a night sweat from the anxiety of her dreams. Sharon is a very sensitive person and can be easily over stimulated by crowds or in the big city. She feels she needs protection from all the people, as if their emotions over take her emotions. Crowds overwhelm her, making her feel cut of from her own spirit.”

Saint John’s Wort flower essence has similar attributes as the whole herb, or tincture, with a few exceptions. The people that can benefit from this flower essence often feel physically or psychically vulnerable. Their emotional or astral body is overly expanded, making them quite sensitive, and often depressed and fearful. They feel that they have lost contact with the spirit world and can be heard repeatedly saying “I will be happy when…”

The Saint John’s Wort flower essence person is sensitive to light, burns easily in the sun and needs sunglasses even on a hazy or cloudy day. They are stressed by both emotional and environmental factors, sometimes resulting in allergies.

Even though this flower essence is useful for people who are sensitive to light, it is equally useful for people who feel that they are deprived of light. It is particularly good for people suffering from Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD), as it stimulates ones own inner spiritual light, helping to anchor their consciousness to the earth plane. It can make a person feel that they have an illuminated consciousness, filled with solar strength and spiritual content.

Saint John’s wort flower essence is useful for people who have disturbed dreams. Usually people who have disturbed dreams have an expanded astral body and the astral body expands more during dream time, often becoming disproportionate to the other bodies. This condition brings up negative elements in the dream state, and nightmares or dreams of being attacked are frequent. Insomnia, bedwetting and night sweats are other common symptoms of this phenomenon.

As a flower essence, Saint John’s wort has amazing restorative powers, providing protection and strength when a person is in this over expanded state. This essence is good for many levels of protection both psychically and environmentally.
