Grief and poignant sadness after any severe loss.  Chronic disheartenment and “locked-in” feelings after experience of grief.  Assists in releasing any chronic psychological disturbances after grief or trauma (post-traumatic stress disorder and adjustment disorder, the latter connoting reactions to a less severe trauma).   The grievous or traumatic experiences overshadow one’s whole existence, cannot be released.  One’s former happiness appears irretrievable; the facts in regard to the loss appear cold and alien.  Sense of utter abandonment, of having lost all support or possibility of help; depression of spirits.  Avoidance reactions to “numb” one’s receptivity to the full severity of the impact, such as denial (Agrimony), anger (Holly), longing for death (Clematis), resigning and emotional standstill (Wild Rose), sinking into depression (Mustard), resentment and blaming (Willow), criticizing (Beech), and giving in to thoughts of nihilism (Sweet Chestnut); (both, Star of Bethlehem plus the specific remedy are indicated).  Lack of rational acknowledgment of limitations, lack of recognizing new possibilities arising from the grief; dominance of emotions.
