Butterfly bush - Buddleja davidii and bore-out

Butterfly bush people are hot for many things, can make the most amazing plans, but they have little interest in everyday things.
They make great plans but are already simultaneously working on the next step, while they haven't even started the first one.

These are often highly intelligent people, who are easily bored by the situation they find themselves in, such as working below their level.
The relatively new term, used for this purpose is: bore-out

It is estimated that 15 per cent of workers suffer a lot from boredom at work whether you work in an office or are a shop assistant, gardener or psychologist. This can also happen to you if you are a housewife, make no mistake. This has nothing to do with not loving your family. So no guilt about this. No, it could be that this is caused by the tasks that are tedious for you, that wait for you every day and that you don't get satisfaction from. Every day that laundry that never seems to end, that bathroom cleaning, the endless shopping (there's food to be eaten, right?)

I have already written an article on burnout: see Hydrangea
As the name suggests, a bore-out to do with boredom. When you are given tasks to do at work that are below your level or simply do not interest you, a bore-out is lurking.
This causes procrastination because the tasks, which you have to do, are uninteresting and therefore you put off unpleasant things.

Are they totally unfocused at work they don't like, they just fiddle around
They are easily distracted from uninteresting work and as a result, they work superficially and many fleeting mistakes can be made.
It is also common that thoughts are suddenly gone and they do not remember what they wanted to say or do.
With the blossom remedy Cucumber weed (see the blog on this) the thoughts are also "just" gone. This is because one is overloaded.
With Butterfly bush people, this also happens, however the cause of this is "underloading"(because they find things so annoying).

In fact, they are constantly on the run from uninteresting things, often including themselves.

At first glance, you might think these are dreamy people. Nothing could be further from the truth.
Inwardly, they are rocket-powered because their heads are full of ideas and they make all kinds of future plans. This makes them feel constantly internally rushed.
Self-induced excess of stimuli leads to concentration disorders, poor memory and inability to meet the demands of daily life.
As a result, they become indifferent and show little interest in the present. As a result, they can be extremely unfocused and Butterfly bush people waste their time because they seem so chaotic, which is often mistaken for dreaminess.

When describing the blossom remedy Leadwort I indicated that these people collect, collect a lot. The reason for this is that they think they can use the information collected one never know!
At Butterfly bush you see that these people also collect and actually never do anything with it.

Butterfly bush people can suffer from insomnia.
Again, the difference between the blossom remedies Houttuynnia Cordata (see blog) and Butterfly bush.
Because Houttuynnia Cordata people cannot stop their thoughts (because it just grinds and grinds), they suffer from insomnia.
Butterfly bush people do not want to stop their thoughts and therefore suffer from insomnia.

Just look at adolescents, who are in such a phase. If you ask them to empty the dishwasher, they may look at you with a look of: How on earth can you ask me such a thing! And in practice, I often ask parents: Does your son or daughter look at you like you are some kind of "earthworm"? Well, that is recognised. I often come across this. Even having to do homework is often an issue! They sigh in anticipation at the idea that homework has to be done sometime anyway. And they often cry out that they will never, ever learn it!
It seems like these children (adults too, you know?) that they forget everything. The house key is always gone. The books, which they need the next day have somehow "disappeared without a trace".They don't want to go to bed or then very late (sigh), leave the light on. And so there are many more examples!
In the morning, they can't get out of bed either. And are dead tired because they either did not sleep or slept far too short.
Yes yes, puberty!

The flower remedy Butterfly Bush, created by Micha, gives overview, a "helicopter view" of all kinds of events happening in your life. So that you understand what is going on and what is happening and you can have confidence in all the changes because you gain insight into the bigger picture of events.
In significant processes, changes in e.g. work, relationships, home, menopause, sleeping, dying, Butterfly bush works gently and harmonising.

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.
