Patterns of imbalance: Leadership distorted by self-aggrandizement or burdensome dutifulness.
At many stages of its evolution, the soul assumes leadership responsibilities, in both large and small circles of influence. Unfortunately, leadership tasks are often assumed for the wrong reasons, and the soul either becomes weighted with burdensome duty, or inflated with self-importance. True spiritual leadership requires the radiance of charisma and contagious enthusiasm. When the soul is fired from with by positive identification with its inner ideals, its altruism can nourish and inspire others. Such leadership is not a matter of a forceful will which manipulates others, or dutiful execution of ones responsibilities; rather, it is an inner joyfulness which energizes others. Lakspur helps those who are in positions of leadership to align their feeling life with their spiritual ideals. From this place, the soul learns to radiate inspired charismatic energy which motivates and encourages others. –Taken from Flower Essence Repertory by P. Kaminski and R. Katz
