For those who do not have emotional boundaries, whose auric fields are absorbent, who feel and pick up the emotions of others to the extent that they are uncertain which feelings are their own and which originate outside themselves. Such people seek to merge with others, sometimes to lose themselves, often to escape personal pain. This results in the aura being excessively open, and easily contaminated, and in over-identification with others, particularly significant others. If the other is sad or angry, these feelings are absorbed and internalised. Such people can live on an emotional merry-go-round as they are subject to surges of conflicting feeling, which may have no basis to refer back to and no means to process. Buchu flower essence helps establish boundaries with others, strengthens the sense of self and clears the auric field.
