This is about Alex, a young man aged 24. He has had a long history of insomnia, and presented to me initially for hypnosis.
This young man has a series of problems that he knows he needs to address. He lives at home with his parents, and the dynamics within the family unit are challenging. His mother reported that he has always had difficulty settling, since he was an infant. During our initial consultation, we established that his underlying issue was fear of going to sleep.
I initially prescribed Crisis Calm to be taken regularly, and as needed at bed time, as a means of addressing his adrenal overload, related to the underlying, but ever-present fear. This was combined with Blue Mink to assist with the feeling of being threatened.
The next visit, he reported that he had been sleeping better, but not as well as he wanted. He reported that he would wake during the night and not be able to return to sleep. He did however appear to have had a shift in his energy pattern to a more peaceful state. He was less guarded in his responses to question, and was more relaxed generally.
Whenever the subject of sleep arose, his energy changed dramatically, and I saw a frightened little boy.
After long discussion, I prescribed Lantana , and Cordyline as he has a dependent relationship with his mother who is over protective, and an ambivalent relationship with his father. These two were combined with Cassia as a means of addressing his fear, and to promote his self reliance.
This has been a major turning point in this young man’s life. He is more positive, and outgoing. He reports that he has addressed issues at his work tat he previously has avoided. He is also going to embark on overcoming his fear of driving, which will be a hugely liberating process. I expect to be seeing more of Alex as we work through his issues. He is now sleeping well, and after we accessed a past life experience with hypnosis, and dealt with it, he no longer has the fear that has plagued him all his life.
He is a convert to Flower essences, and it is only through the clearing and balancing work of the essences that he had the courage to attempt the regression process, and gain his freedom.
