First I should explain what the Bach Flower remedies are. Bach flower remedies were introduced in the 1930s by Edward Bach, M.D., a British physician, who developed what he called a "theory of types" by which he divided people into seven groups based on their reactions to illness. He listed these types as fear, uncertainty, loneliness, oversensitivity, lack of interest in present circumstances, despondency, and over-concern for others. Dr. Bach believed that negative moods and emotions were responsible for the breakdown in health that leads to illness and determined that treatment had to address patients' emotional and mental states. He devised 38 wild flower essences, or remedies, for treatment for these negative moods and emotions. The first one I completed was "Clematis".

Clematis relates to the soul potential of creative idealism. In the negative Clematis state a person tends to withdraw a lot into their own imagination. Many creative types can use a little Clematis from time to time. Creative people tend to be people that are easily in touch with their imagination. Sometimes though that inner world can be more attractive to us than the "real world". We have our heads too much in the clouds and can't get grounded. Clematis helps alleviate the spaciness and helps us bring our creativity to physical realization. It is a good remedy to take when you are feeling creatively blocked.
I added the dragonflies in this one as a strong symbol for integrating the "Otherworld/Inner World" with our outer world. The dragonfly inhabits two realms: air and water and teaches us how to walk in both worlds.
If you fall into the Clematis state some, you are probably a "walker between the worlds". Try taking a little of this essence to help you stay grounded and transform all of that unused creative potential into physical form (Painting, weaving, writing, etc.).
