o Strong ideals and convictions embodied in self
Patterns of Imbalance:
o Tending toward fanaticism
o Tense and physically disconnected
A vervain soul type naturally possesses strong forces of passionate idealism. They give themselves fully and completely to the work or cause in which they believe. However, they can become so convinced of the rightness or the urgency of their beliefs that their natural charismatic capacities degenerate into those of the zealot or fanatic. Their true leadership ability is afflicted, for the Vervain type's incredible intensity can overwhelm and prevent others from making their own energetic connection to the project or cause which is being promoted. Such an individual can be characterized as possessing not only great intensity but also great physical tension, which results in many nervous and digestive problems, and in extreme cases may lead to nervous breakdown. Such persons are highly unaware of their true energy levels, and often push their bodies completely beyond their natural capacities. In fact, there is very little connection to the physical body or to the physical world, because this type lives so fervently in the world of ideas. Vervain is particularly an embodiment remedy, helping the soul to centre and ground its tremendous enthusiasm. In this way, the body becomes a natural regulator and harmoniser for the tremendous spiritual forces which pour out of such a person. When the fiery light of Vervain is radiated through the medium of the body and the physical world, it becomes more luminous and more contained; and thus more able to inspire, lead, and heal others.
An inner flame glows within Vervain types, a positive idea that fills them full of ideals, passions and the desire to convince others. They are always on call, dedicated as they are to their “calling”. They use their will-power to its full, although it tends to be used aggressively. Their bodies are tense, wired up and difficult to de-stress.
