Positive state: The light at the end of the tunnel
Negative state: Extreme mental anguish, when everything has been tried and there is no light left
Sweet Chestnut’s gift is its ability to restore our connection to our Soul’s light and love.
In the acute state those in need of Sweet Chestnut feel that they have reached the limits of their endurance and are at the end of the road. In this extreme state they feel an absolute and utter despair or hopelessness – a state of desolation in which they feel isolated from the rest of mankind.
Often described as ‘the dark night of the soul’ this state can be experienced when the personality is faced with the challenge of confronting itself. The ‘back to the wall’ feeling is the result of the personality’s resistance to make the inner change necessary to move to the next level of consciousness, so this uncomfortable state can sometimes precede a big movement forward.
Sweet Chestnut brings back the light and joy to life, dissolving the darkness.
