Patterns of imbalance: Easily upset, moody and irritable, inability to release emotional tension, especially in the stomach or solar plexus
When we say that someone has a sunny disposition, we inherently recognize that such a soul has a harmonious emotional life. Like the sun which shines with constancy for all to see, so the soul must learn to regulate and harmonize its emotional life. Those needing Chamomile flower essence are subject to very changeable moods and ever-fluctuating emotions. Their “inner weather” is stormy and easily “clouded” until they shift their consciousness to remember that the sun is always shining serenely behind all the outer phenomena. People needing Chamomile tend to accumulate psychic tension throughout the day, particularly in the stomach region. They will often have difficulty letting go of their emotional stress at night, and thus suffer from insomnia. This is particularly true of children, whose myriad stomach complaints are often emotionally based. Chamomile helps such souls to release tension from the stomach and solar plexus areas, and to harmonize their inner solar forces for greater emotional peace and stability. It subdues the many small emotions which vex the soul life, helping to consolidate those into a more fundamental soul essence of serenity and equanimity.
