Aspen is related to the soul potential of fearlessness, overcoming and resurrection. In the negative state one is caught up in unconscious anxieties. It is said that people needing Aspen have been born without a protective skin layer. This is the plane (emotional and astral) through which we must pass each night in our dreams, to reach the transpersonal level of existence where we are able to contact our higher self which then lets constructive and healing forces come to us while we are asleep. People who need Aspen are much more than other people flooded day and night with thoughts and images from this plane without being aware of it.
