Patterns of imbalance: Aloof, withdrawn, disdainful of social relationships.
The Water Violet personality is generally very quiet and self-contained, with soul qualities of gracefulness and equanimity. Their sedate, calm manner enables them to handle many different occupational and life situations in a very capable manner. However, it is difficult to know such persons well, or to feel a warm and personable connection with them. Such persons often appear distant or aloof; more extreme types seem proud, haughty, or arrogant. They may become involved in community affairs, but only in accordance with their professional standing. Many such souls have chosen to be born into families of wealth and social prominence, and they are well-cultured and educated. But even among Water Violet types without this obvious upper-class background, one feels a quality which sets such a person apart; the soul conducts itself with great dignity and refinement. It has no need to draw attention to itself, but neither does it seem to have much need to give of itself to others. Many such souls are in fact highly evolved, or they may be strongly influenced by the subconscious memory of a prominent past life. Such individuals are blocked in their further evolution until they realize that the Self can evolve only so far as a separate identity. The true spiritual Self must expand to include all of humanity. Water Violet helps such souls make a transition to a more inclusive state of consciousness, one that helps them experience a compassionate and joyful connection to the human family. –Taken from Flower Essence Repertory by P.
