Gentian: Keywords for this remedy are depression at setbacks, lack of faith, mistrust of people and things, false illusions, feeling of ghost present, expect failures, disappointment, weak-willed, easily discouraged, lack of endurance, a tendency toward relapse, and insufficient determination.
I’m pretty sure you know these types of people or you have met with those people who stop their work in between when they find little hurdles in the process of completing their task. These types of people are somewhat pessimistic. They lose their hope very easily.
Symptoms of Gentian disease are:
- Lack of faith
- Easily discouraged by setbacks
- Mistrust of people and things
- False illusions
- Feeling a ghost’s presence
In this mental state, they are easily discouraged by setbacks. Instead of doing the work with more effort and more concentration, they shut that work. In this, they see the negative aspects of the work as bigger than the positive aspects. They instantly change their mindset after facing even a minor setback. They start to lack their focus, faith, and even confidence in doing that work. And they get nervous quickly and in nervousness, they shut that work and regret what they have done.
They feel anguished about the decision they have taken. If something doesn’t flow as they have hoped, they doubt themselves and think: well, maybe no one really wants this, and I’m just bothering others or making a fool of myself. They don’t have faith and trust in the judgment they have made earlier. After making that wrong decision, instead of doing some efforts to make things right, they will depend on their destiny that luck will knock back again if it’s in their fate.
However, I do not disagree about the term that opportunity will possibly knock back. But it will only happen with those who have some guts to face the challenges and then only that person can grab that opportunity.
For example, a person wants to start a business so he invests a huge amount of money in that project. He collects all the related information, statistics, and details about how to start a business or how to run that business. He devises all the research and strategies for doing that business. Then after some time when that person is near to his desired goal suddenly, some hurdles come between his journey to achieving the goal. That setback is totally unexpected for him. At that point, he gets nervous and lacks faith and confidence, in whether he has taken the right decision or not. And now he stops his work in the middle of the journey of achieving the goal. This results in a waste of money, waste of time, waste of effort, and at last, that person will become a pessimist.
Gentian type feels depressed and sighs, catches hold of something or other over which he can grieve, are hard to please or satisfy, doubt the messages from their higher selves, at its extreme, this personality doesn’t feel comfortable unless it is engaged in worry over something, harbor a seed of doubt in every possible thing-a true Gentian personality will always be a skeptic.
These kinds of people don’t have faith, even their own abilities for example: when they buy a good thing which can help them in their growth but due to a mistrust habit, they follow someone else’s opinion and lose that thing.
Gentian is the remedy or cure for that type of mental state. Sometimes we feel when things go wrong or out of luck, destiny, or opportunity whatever we want to say will knock back us. Of course, Gentian Bach Remedy will not bring it back but definitely, Gentian will help you to increase your faith and confidence in yourself.

Situation to Use Gentian
Situations, where you can use Gentian for the following people. For example, Mr. X goes to book a berth on a train and finds a few people in the queue. He has to wait in the queue for his turn. He feels depressed about this, though the length of that queue is small compared to the regular rush on other days. He can never be happy. When his turn comes and asks for a ticket handing over five hundred rupees, the booking clerk at the counter tells him he has no chance, the Gentian type feels depressed and sighs.
When they begin some work like writing a letter and the pen goes dry. Instead of filling ink into the pen, they get depressed because the ink is available in his house and they have to just fill it, which is a routine thing. But they react /think, “Whenever I take the pen, it will not write.” They include a lingering illness, a prolonged period of unemployment, or the death of a loved family member, friend, or pet.
They are prone to grumbling. For example, another Gentian-type person asks for a loan of one thousand rupees from his friend, telling him that it is required in two days’ time. The next evening the friend gives him the amount. Instead of being satisfied for having got the amount he grieves, “Why should he make me wait for two days for this? He could have given yesterday itself.” Next, if the friend had given the money on the same day, say in the form of ten-rupee notes, the Gentian-type person thinks /remarks, “Who will count and carry all these. He could have given me hundred or five-hundred rupee notes. Next, had the friend given in five-hundreds, the reaction of the Gentian-type would be, “I have to go somewhere and get the change. He could have given me hundreds.”
There is always an aura of sadness on a Gentian-type person’s face where you can never see them smiling, they are sadness incarnate, and even when a small problem crops up, they become sad. If at all they smile it is a dejected smile only.
