Star of Bethlehem, the flower that lights up the darkness of the soul

The Star of Bethlehem is the flower that consoles inconsolable people, furthers aims and excites attention when everything seems dull and uninteresting.

It is used in very special occasions, after a traumatic event, such as bereavement, the loss of a love, the breaking of a friendship or of a family bond. The negative event could be even more contingent, such as job loss, the diagnosis of a disease, fear after an accident or an argument with a co-worker, a teacher.


The Star of Bethlehem is used when we feel a pain that suddenly changes everything, when there’s an event that runs through our lives like a comet: after that, everything seems irreparable, lost, meaningless. We don’t have energy, we feel depressed. We are no more capable of enjoy things, dream, make plans and react.
