The irretrievable past is mourned. One has lost a special state that meant happiness and wealth of experience.  Feelings of powerlessness, the same happiness cannot be repeated; the present appears empty, the future void of promise.  Mind wanders to and dwells on memories of the past; reminiscences that detract from the present moment.  Sweet melancholic state; nostalgic, poetic indulgence.  In extreme cases, delusions or visions of past experiences, with underlying unresolved grief or trauma.  Homesickness; empty-nest-syndrome; nostalgia in regard to loss of youth, health, and beauty, due to injury or aging; dwelling on lost love relationship. Need to find new structure and frame of reference for one’s life; the dynamic of the past is lost, the present appears to hold no structure to allow for new and fruitful experiences to grow.Sadness is the predominant emotion, yet it is tinged with the sweet pain of cherishing something lost, of longing to relive former happiness, if only in one’s memories. There is also hopelessness and resignation in regard to present and future potential for happiness, and there is certainty that nothing can replace the lost fulfilment. Oftentimes, these feelings are based on facts, as in old age when the losses cannot be replaced in this life.  Honeysuckle will help even then to ease the sadness and direct the view to the remaining joys of the present moment.  Honeysuckle may apply to many different situations of life, whenever a lost preferred state calls from the past and diverts from fully exploring the present.
