Mind / emotions

Internal restlessness and need for peace.  Antagonism within own self; works for balance and joy, yet does not want to acknowledge or integrate adverse experiences or circumstances. Repression and denial of conflicts or vexations; yet, disquiet, worries, resentments, and anxieties remain.  Since peace is constantly threatened within, outside interruptions and disharmony are hardly tolerated. Need to be the peacemaker.   Inability to be present in the here and now and find happiness in it, mainly due to restlessness and worry; worrisome, anxious projection into the future.   Lack of fulfillment and inner calm, may be due to a lack of partnership or family.  Lack of sexual fulfillment.  Conscientious about trifles.  Use of drugs and diversion to not have to face dilemmas.  Ability to uphold cheerful emotions, even in the midst of tragedies.  Heightened impressionability; disagreeable impressions may not be integrated into consciousness but create disquiet and repeated concern; unruly thoughts; internal torture.  Mild or repressed anxiety of conscience.


  • MIND – ANXIETY – future, about
  • MIND – BROODING – hidden cares; tormented by
  • MIND – COMPANY – desire for
  • MIND – COMPLAINING – never
  • MIND – DEATH – desires
  • MIND – JOY


All diseases resulting from psychological repression of conflicts for the sake of peace or “quickly cleaning up.”  Diseases marked by denial and the pretense that “all is well.”  The body talks symptomatically, expressing through subconscious mechanisms those vital issues that the conscious mind does not want to address and solve. Nervous restlessness and inner agitation; sensitivity to noise and confusion.  Insomnia and nightmares. All pains accompanied by restlessness and the attempt to master the pain, to pretend it is not there, and to continue to stay cheerful toward others.  Liver disorders; a weak liver is often associated with lack of aggressive power and love for peace. 22 [Agrimony finds herbal use as a liver remedy; it is a tonic and astringent plant and yields a yellow dye, hinting at its affinity with liver and gallbladder ailments. (Compare the yellow juice contained in the stem of Chelidonium majus, another liver and gallbladder remedy.)]
