Yarrow, Pink

Achillea millefolium


Positive qualities: Loving awareness of others with an open, protected heart. Feeling appropriate emotional boundaries, while maintaining a self-contained consciousness.

Patterns of imbalance: Dysfunctional merging with others, which is the result of unbalanced sympathetic forces and an overly absorbent auric field, creating a lack of emotional clarity.


“Patricia is a very sensitive girl. She cannot easily discern between her own emotions and the emotions of those around her. She is overly compassionate and sympathetic to others, which leaves her vulnerable to being hurt by them. She is even more vulnerable when she is in a love relationship. Every time she feels comfortable in what she thought was a meaningful relationship, she gets hurt, and ends the relationship in an effort to protect herself. Patricia longs for emotional clarity and the ability to have a receptive heart that doesn’t leave her feeling vulnerable.”
