...is the remedy for any fear where the cause of the fear cannot be named.
At one end of the spectrum the Aspen fear can
be no more than a sense of foreboding, an uneasy anxiety that something
unpleasant or frightening is going to happen. At the other it can be a real
terror, with physical symptoms such as the hair standing on end. At this
Rock Rose could also be helpful.
Sometimes people think of Aspen
as a night-time fear, as causeless emotions seem to be uncanny. And of course
if you were lying awake in a dark room scared of something but not knowing what
it was, then Aspen
would be the remedy to take. But in fact Dr Bach said that for fear of the dark
Mimulus would be the
appropriate remedy to take, since the cause of the fear (the dark) can be
named. And nameless Aspen fears are just as
likely to occur in full sunlight as on a dark night.
Dr Bach's description
Vague unknown fears, for which there can be given no explanation, no reason.
Yet the patient may be terrified of something terrible going to happen, he
knows not what. These vague unexplainable fears may haunt by night or day.
Sufferers often are afraid to tell their trouble to others.
