Positive state: Being in the here & now
Negative state: Dreaming of the future without working in the present
Clematis helps those who all too easily drift off into daydreams and fantasies about the future feeling that life will be better there, than it currently is.
People in need of this remedy seem to be generally inattentive or sleepy and might complain of forgetfulness or a lack of concentration. They often have cold feet and hands, and often need lots of sleep. Their lack of desire to be fully present means that they have their ‘head in the clouds’ most of the time and are generally ungrounded which makes them prone to appearing clumsy or accident-prone. Psychics and those working a lot in their imagination like artists and writers often need the ‘reality check’ that this remedy brings.
