A Few Words About the Condition
This person may have had difficult pre or after birth.
The hardship can come from both parents’ state of health in all aspect - physical, mental, emotional, economical, and their relationship with each other. It results in you being mal- or under nourished.
As you have not yet been on earth long enough to fend for yourself, you feel helpless which arises the emotion of fear. Fear is the primal emotion against death. We experience death many times in our lifetime. For example, your love relationship ending against your wish because your partner does not give you chance to even fight.
The only you can do for things beyond your control is acceptance, forgiveness and trust. The fact is that you have survived to this day and now are able to solicit assistance of plants’ wisdom.
Seeds that falls on hard, dry soil have less chance of surviving the critical sowing stage. Those who do have to compete for the limited available water, primal element of life. Those who manage to mature learns to keep a certain distance from each other.
