Clematis is for people whose minds drift away from the present into fantasies of the future, or into alternative versions of the present. Often they dream of future success, creative endeavour and achievement. The danger is that they are not sufficiently anchored in reality to make their dreams happen.
The remedy helps bring us back to earth and back to ourselves so that we can act to build a better life, instead of living in daydreams.
Clematis horses seem to fall into a drowse more easily and more often than other horses. They have little liking for a link with everyday reality, and instead live in a world of their own, not paying attention to what is going on around them any more than absolutely have to.
Clematis will help to be fully awake and alert in the now. Brings the Clematis horse back to earth and back to himself so that he can act instead of living in daydreams.
Things to look for:
- Excessive sleepiness
- Horses who get into accidents through not paying attention to where they are
- Horses who do not notice positive stimuli such as the approach of a pair-bond or the arrival of food
“Those who are dreamy, drowsy, not fully awake, no great interest in life. Quiet people, not really happy in their present circumstances, living more in the future than in the present; living in hopes of happier times, when their ideals may come true. In illness some make little or no effort to get well, and in certain cases may even look forward to death, in the hope of better times; or maybe, meeting again some beloved one whom they have lost.” Dr. Edward Bach ~
