Aster - Tripolium pannonicumaster

The flower remedy Aster is for those people who need a lot of attention and who like to cling to others just to avoid being alone and who have a fear of getting sick and are quick to feel sorry for themselves.

Aster people like to interfere with others and get involved in conversations. They may "use" other people's conversations so that they can talk directly about themselves again.
They very much want to be the centre of attention and often have the highest word and often do not realise it themselves.
They like to always have the phone handy so they can always reach someone, anyone. My new word for this is "telefonitis".

Hypochondria (fear of getting sick) is something common among Aster people and it can take up their entire lives.
I think you should take hypochondria very seriously.
Often, temporarily, medical students suffer from this (unconscious) fear during their training due to all the diseases they face.

In a waiting room, you often recognise Aster people because they talk openly about their terrible condition, whether you are listening or not.

This state of mind is also easy to recognise in children: they quickly stand out because of their pushy attitude, they interfere in adult conversation, also become physically pushy or aggressive if they are not listened to directly, are very squeamish. At school, they raise their finger in class and keep waving it to get attention. They are children who are quick to cry at the slightest pain or when they do not get attention.

The flower remedy Aster feels like a supportive arm around your shoulders.
She stimulates, comforts and encourages. You regain a sense of basic confidence.
You no longer need the attention you sought from others, positive or negative, conscious or unconscious.

Physically, this can manifest itself through a feeling of pressure in the heart area, tension throughout the abdomen, or the famous lump in the throat.

This flower remedy belongs to the kidney meridian, so with the organ Kidney.

Use of Blossom Remedies

The most important thing with blossom remedies is the frequency of intake. Blossom remedies are best taken as often as possible in a day with the golden guideline being; 4 to 6 times a day, with 4 drops at a time from the dispensing bottle. To use blossom remedies and a user bottle, here are the simple steps; take a clean and unused 30ml pipette bottle. First, fill the pipette bottle with spring water. After this, add one teaspoon of brandy as a preservative, then add the blossom remedies.

Take the stock bottle or stock bottles of the chosen blossom remedies and put 3 drops of each into the 30ml. pipette bottle. A second golden guideline is; 1 drop from the stock bottle(s) to 10ml of spring water. There is no need to shake the bottle before use as it only contains the vibrations of the plants and has no actual material content.

Then take 4 drops from the user bottle and drip it under the tongue. If you touch the dropper with the tongue, mould may develop in the bottle. Repeat taking the blossom remedies at least 4 to 6 times a day.

Flower remedies are not a substitute for medication and do not replace doctors or medical specialists. Please note that in case of doubt you should always consult a doctor.
