The Inner Child – Innocence
Touch-Me-Not-Balsam - The archetype of the inner child.
Touch-Me-Not-Balsam - Impatiens noli-tangere
Brings back the original trust in the world, innocence and confidence.
Every new born child has the unconditional right to be welcome and loved, without giving anything in return for it, without having to accomplish anything. Its existence is reason enough to get all the affection, concern, care, food and love. This gives the child confidence and self-confidence, it learns to know its own worth. Whom the experience of being loved for his own sake was denied in early childhood, can become suspicious and inaccessible, can not stand closeness and will fear of being hurt even by those who mean well, since he has not learned to distinguish them from those who may take advantage of him. Relationships and bonding ability remain underdeveloped. Such people tend to believe not to have earned any love.
Touch-Me-Not-Balsam brings back the quality of original trust, the ability to let go and to trust others.
