Patterns of imbalance: Overseriousness, dullness, heaviness, lack of humor; overly somber sense of Self, repressed inner child.
Humor is uniquely human. Other forms of life certainly experience joy and delight, but humor requires the ability to step outside oneself, and not take oneself so seriously. It is the human being, with its pronounced sense of Self, who has developed and very much needs the soul quality of humor. The capacity to laugh at ones self, or to be light-hearted, is quite literally a necessary balance to the somber heaviness of self-consciousness. Zinnia is a most wonderful remedy for this state of soul, helping the Self to contact its inner child. –Taken from Flower Essence Repertory by P. Kaminski and R. Katz
