What Does Water Violet Help With...
Water Violet helps to restore the soul qualities of humility and wisdom. Those in need of Water Violet often have much valuable wisdom and insight to share but due to their gentle, sensitive natures find it hard to communicate this to others. They have a tendency to withdraw into their own space and can sometimes appear to be aloof and unapproachable or perhaps slightly superior or proud, all aspects of personality that contribute to their sense of isolation from others. Water Violet helps them to remember the oneness of all things and to dissolve the barriers around the heart chakra that this state creates, promoting the ability to socialise easily and to share their integrity, wisdom and knowledge.

Dr Bach’s Description of Water Violet
"For those who in health or illness like to be alone. Very quiet people, who move about without noise, speak little, and then gently. Very independent, capable and self-reliant. Almost free of the opinions of others. They are aloof, leave people alone and go their own way. Often clever and talented. Their peace and calmness is a blessing to those around them"
From the Twelve Healers & Other Remedies - By Dr Edward Bach ( 1936 edition )
More Insights Into Water Violet
"These are very beautiful people in mind and often in body. They are gentle, quiet, very refined and cultured and yet are masters of their fate and lead their lives with a quiet determination and certainty." Dr Edward Bach
"Water Violet relates to the potential to communicate and to the Soul qualities of humility and wisdom. In the negative Water Violet state you're prone to overly cultivating your "specialness," and withdrawing from the rest of the world in proud reserve." The Encyclopedia of Bach Flower Therapy by Mechthild Scheffer
"The soul difficulty is pride and aloofness; the lesson that of 'perfect service to mankind'. Bach described it as a contrast between joy and grief. His point was this: these are souls who 'know their work in life and do it with a quiet, certain will'. They have experience and know what this work brings - 'have you had real losses, sad times and yet go quietly on?' But it can also be inferred that these people come somewhat reluctantly into life. They know too well the vicissitudes of the world and have striven to leave them behind." Bach Flower Remedies Form & Function by Julian Barnard
"The Water Violet people are quite gentle. They are happy to be by themselves because they have great inner peace and serenity. They are self-reliant; they go heir own way and do not interfere with the affairs of other persons, but at the same time they will not tolerate any interference in their affairs. They bear their grief and sorrows in silence; they never inflict them upon others. When the Water Violet type are ill, they prefer to be left alone and undisturbed. They are talented and clever, and it is their capabilities and their profound knowledge that causes them to appear proud and aloof. They often feel superior to others, and sometimes they are disdainful and condescending." Illustrated Handbook of the Bach Flower Remedies by Philip Chancellor
