Flowers are always special to me

From the Bach Flower Workshop, Bangalore 2013

Naran

Flowers are always special to me.  Bach Flowers are complete by itself.

I have been taking the Bach Flower Remedy workshops for last 12 years. Every time, when I go through my previous Bach Flower Manual, I arrive at some new avenues of flower remedies.

The manual that you are having in your hands was prepared for the last workshop at Hyderabad. However, I have prepared some new combinations for you. I have worked out some 30 plus combinations for various life situations. That’s specially prepared for you, which I haven’t shared with anybody so far. I am going to give that now to you in this class.

What’s the specialty of flower remedies?

Flower remedies are the only ones for healing our minds. May be there are so many techniques to address our minds and emotions. But nothing can be as specific as flower remedies.

Basically, we have got only four emotions – fear, worry, sadness or depression, and anger. We have only these four emotions. Yet, we are not able to handle any of our emotions by ourselves.

Advantages of using flower remedies

The one advantage of flower remedy is that if you identify the flower remedy correctly, even one dose is enough to effect the required change.  The disadvantage is most of the time we fail to identify the right remedies.

In spite of my 21 years of experience in prescribing flower remedies, even now, sometimes I feel after the exit of the patient, I could have given a different set of remedies.  On a later date, thinking about the case, I sometimes think I could have done this (instead of that).

Another advantage of the flower remedies is, even if you take the wrong remedies, nothing will happen. It mayn’t work for you. That’s it.

You can also use the flowers along with pranic healing also by keeping the flowers active in the pranic field. A no of pranic healers after learning flower remedies, have started using flower therapy also as pranic healing tool.

39 remedies

There are 39 flower remedies. Out of which one is a combination, which was suggested by Dr. Edward Bach himself.

He was alive during the 20th century. He travelled through the wild forests of England and found out about 38 remedies within a span of 10-12 years. By the time, he completed his research, it was around late 1930s, and he died.

When he died, he said the research was over. But his own disciple Dr. Bailey continued the research and came out with some more flower essences.  Currently, all over the world, there are more than 5000 essences available. But unfortunately, none of those flower essences are as specific as Bach Flowers.

These researchers say that these essences work like Bach Flowers and vice versa. For every flower essences they quote by comparing the Dr Bach flowers only. Even though, there are volumes of information about these essences, I never had any inclination to look into those flowers as Bach Flowers are complete and whole.

Reflect the energy of love and sympathy

How to figure out whether a person requires the flower remedy Mimulus? You mentioned that for all specific fears, one has to take Mimulus. Please gives us some examples?

Naran

A specific fear means that a person is afraid of something, somebody, or some situation.

I will give you some typical Doctor Vs Patient related examples here:

  • Doctor, I can bear the pain, but not the prick of a needle. Please don’t administer injection for me.”
  • A patient requests the doctor not do surgery and instead give him medicines. After the doctor has examined him he may say, “Doctor, I hope there is nothing to worry.”
  • A person may have a small boil in his hand. When he shows that to the doctor, he would ask him “I hope this may not be cancerous!”

Mimulus helps people with specific fears like fear of a person, fear of crossing the road, fear of riding, fear of doctors, fear of crowds, and fear of animals – about dog, cockroach, lizard etc. Typical fears would be:

  • I am afraid to go to a dentist.
  • I avoid all types of diagnostic investigations.
  • If I don’t recover, then there is every chance that I will lose my job.
  • If I get news about someone’s death, I start feeling that my death is also near, and I fear that I may die soon.
  • I don’t go by lift. Even if it is a six storey building I will climb. I am so afraid that the lift might get stuck due to power cut and I may be stranded forever inside the lift.

When I talk about Mimulus it reminds me a poem of Rabindranath Tagore: Even well before you take birth in this world, the God has provided Milk in the breasts of the Mother. Why fear?

When you have Mimulus in the pocket or when you chant Mimulus, your auric will be filled, and you will project as well as reflect the energy of love, compassion and sympathy.

One-hour pain management

Bach flower remedies peel one emotion after another to get into the core issue. It’s like peeling onions. Here, I want to recount a case history about a lady who went through several emotions within a span of one hour. I prescribed her one remedy after another, until her core issue was revealed, which came in the form of a head ache. Enjoy reading!

Naran S. Balakumar

One lady came for the recent Reiki Workshop along with her mother. The students were doing the “So Hum” breathing exercise – where we have to breathe as per the chanting So Hum played from a CD. It’s a powerful breathing technique.

After 5 minutes of breathing, she started weeping. I thought it will stop in few minutes, but her sobbing continued. So I asked her to stop the exercise.  I enquired on what is happening to her. She replied that she has got a severe head ache which has become unbearable to her. Then she became very restless.

I gave her RESCUE REMEDY. After taking the remedy she was out of her sobbing.

She was quiet for about 5 minutes and then asked me, “Is this Reiki? You told us that our buried emotions are coming out and it is ok. But I am scared of this Reiki practice, since I am getting back my headache after 8 long years. I am really scared. I don’t want my headache to recur again. Please don’t get me into Reiki. Let my mother continue. I don’t want my headache back.”

I prescribed MIMULUS to her. Five minutes after taking the flower remedy, she started hugging her mother, saying “that whenever I used to get headache in my childhood days, I used to hug my mother and lay my head on her chest.”

She was given CHICORY and immediately she said “Yes I am fine, feeling fresh. But I want to say one more thing. My mother never loves me. My sister is her favorite. There are many incidents and events to vindicate. I don’t love her, I just hate her.”

I gave her the Bach Flower Remedy HOLLY. “My hatred for her is so much that I slowly withdraw emotionally not only from her but from others too. Nobody is worthy of my love”.

Then I prescribed her another flower remedy WATER VIOLET.

After taking the remedy she said, “I am getting back the pain. Yes it has started again. But it is bearable and pricking.”

I gave the remedy GENTIAN. After taking the remedy, she said, “My neck is becoming stiff, I am not able to move my head. It is paining and becoming stiff.”

I prescribed the remedy – BEECH. After taking the remedy, surprisingly she stopped talking, reclined in the chair and said “Sir, I will go home now and get some rest.”

She went home and phoned up to me and said she has become absolutely alright. No recurring head aches after that day.

Next day she got initiated into Reiki.

Final Word

Once the core issue is touched, the awareness of the issue is revealed. Once awareness sets in, most of the time, the core issue becomes easy to handle by oneself without any external help.

Let us seek the helping hand of Bach Flower Remedies to lead us into light and love (Reiki means Love and Light).

No solution in sight

Sai R

Our land supplementary agreement is in registrar’s office who is objecting to certain parts of the matter which will give strong legal right to us. It looks like the land problem is going towards a case.

The builder is colluding with the registrar. They don’t want it to be registered, because the builder does not want to implement it, because of the various deviations he did to the space.

The other flat owners are pressurizing us to sell for a lower price, warding away new buyers. They are extracting money towards maintenance for empty flats, and not accounting for bills.

The municipal authorities do not want to change the name from the builder’s name to my father’s name, because they want dues which need to be settled by the builder. They are refusing to assess taxes for the new flats.

There is pressure from all sides, and no solution in sight. My father is getting stressful by the minute, unable to think of a solution as to how to solve these problems. I am his son, and unable to help because we are far away from them.

Chant “MUSTARD, OAK, HORNBEAM, DIVINE WIND TRANSFORM VICTORY”

One remedy a day keeps the problems away

Notes from Naran’s workshops on Bach Flower Remedies

One needs to experiment with Bach flowers to know the effects of each of the remedies.

Raju – a student of Naran would try out different things with Bach Flower Remedies. He would carry and intake one flower at a time and study the results of using that remedy.

Raju found out whenever he takes WALNUT, people come and talk to him on friendly terms (Walnut develops rapport and makes you to understand the other person. It has lot more properties too). And when he took GORSE, people showed lots of respect for his opinions.

Others will understand you

If you tend to be critical with your associates, take BEECH and WALNUT.  It will help you to communicate with them wonderfully. They will understand where you are coming from.

Rapport with the new CEO

Krishna had an interview with his new CEO. As one could expect, he was nervous. Based on the consultation with Naran, he threw few WALNUT pills under his seat.

He had a great start with the CEO. And, after 10 years of meeting him, still Krishna has a good rapport with him.

To know more about such interesting facts about Bach Flower Remedies, please attend the workshop by Naran S Balakumar, at Bangalore, on 14th and 15thDec, 2013.

Getting carried away

Naran

Once you carry the Bach Flower Remedies in your pockets, you enter the energy field of the Bach flowers you are carrying.

In addition, mentally you could say few times that you have entered the energy field of so and so remedy too.

Ravi is a social worker, and he has to meet people to collect donations for his agency that caters to the needs of the old-age people. He carries with him always WALNUT and CHICORY as this is a good combination for any type of negotiations – both for money and relationship. This combination provides Win-win situations for everybody concerned.

Similar situations that demand this approach are:

  • Carry BEECH and WALNUT with you when you are expressing your problems that you are facing in your organization.
  • WALNUT for interviews
  • GORSE and CLEMATIS when you are visiting temples and you want to have a wonderful dharshan

In fact, whenever you are working on major issue in your life, you can follow this approach along with other methods.

Ghostbusters

Naran

ASPEN is for fearing for and seeing ghosts, and come under hallucinations too.

If you spray WHITE CHESTNUT, CLEMATIS, WALNUT and ASPEN the ghost(s) will leave.

A girl committed suicide in an apartment. A watchman was appointed after the old watchman disappeared. He watched a ghost pushing him away. He was told by the ex-watchman that the ghost which has the looks like the young girl goes in a certain path every night around 2 AM. It doesn’t hurt anybody, though pushes things away that are in its path.

The combination was put in a bucket of water and was sprayed in the supposed path of the ghost. After the fourth day it didn’t come. The time has come for the girl to reach the next stage.

7th day it came again. The remedies were sprayed for few more days. After 16 days later, it stopped coming to the apartment.

Project the flowers on the soul and pray that it reaches the next stage.

Do you know why honesty meets dishonesty?

Notes from Naran’s workshop on Bach Flower Remedies, Nov 20th, 2010

We tend to meet people opposite to our nature, so that we continue to maintain our character. For example, a ROCK WATER – who is duty bound, meets CHESTNUT BUD a dishonest person.

Because of principles and honesty a ROCK WATER person misses so many things in life.

Notes from Naran’s talk on Bach Flower Remedies, Feb 21st, 2004

Belief-Ridden Rock Water Person

ROCK WATER is for those talking about social values, and believing that individual beliefs are not important. He will not feel guilty about being a highly principled man either.

As a ROCK WATER person is rigid in his principles and not flexible enough, this will be eventually reflected as joint problems and knee problems.

Example

I have no connection with my daughter who married a lower caste guy.  It is an act of self-denial, if he says, “I will not take food from my daughter.” He will totally deny it, even if he makes up with his daughter.

On the other hand, a CHICORY person will say he will not take food only as an emotional black mail, while the ROCK WATER does it to stick to his decision.

Another example

After 10 days of her husband’s death she will shave her head, irrespective of others saying that it’s no longer an appropriate behavior to be followed: a typical ROCK WATER person

Girl blaming husband’s family

Take SWEET CHESTNUT, WILLOW, HOLLY, ROCK WATER and CHESTNUT BUD to manage false accusations. Add PINE if you develop low self-esteem or think it’s all due to your karma.

Don’t calculate what you spend

Ram

I am suffering from Varicocele problem.

Naran

Varicocele is similar to varicose veins; but the site of problem is scrotum.

There is a block of blood flow; built-up or accumulation of venous blood. There is no space to go and therefore, there is back flow.

Take the flower remedies CHICORY for holding on to what all is not needed.

The person’s stingy nature – calculating every penny that is being spent – is one of the causes. Giving or spending with a wry face, is the nature of the family.

Pessimistic attitude is another reason. GENTIAN is the remedy for that.

For removing the built up, CRAB APPLE is also needed.

For the back flow, which is against the natural flow, SCLERANTHUS is the remedy. Always having confusion, between two choices, fear of taking a decision, not doing anything in Time, calls for Bach flower remedy Scleranthus.

A combination of CHICORY, GENTIAN, SCLERANTHUS and CRAB APPLE is to be taken for 4 months.
