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

Sheela

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 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.

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.

Going to the root of the problem

Naran

Son is in USA, doing his post-graduation. His root canal treatment went for a toss. The doctors asked him to do it again, which would cost him 1000 dollars. Of course he can’t afford to pay it.

His parents were worried. I asked them to take the Bach Flower Remedies RED CHESTNUT, MIMULUS and GORSE.

Within 15 minutes, after taking the first dose, the doctors agreed to do the operation free. His son called and informed his parents.

Explanation:

Worrying about the welfare of their son: RED CHESTNUT

Son’s fear of operation: MIMULUS

As there is no alternative to solve the situation: GORSE

Tips for getting money

Jean

Is there a switch word that will touch people hearts to leave a tip or make them to tip?

I work in a hotel as a lobby attendance. My co-workers are room attendants.  People do not tip them anymore.

Naran

When the client sits on the table, thank them for ordering the food through you.

Thank the divine for meeting them.

Pray to the divine, that whatever you serve will give them good health.

When you come to work, think about previous day’s clients. Thank them one by one, even if someone had not paid a tip.

Thank the hotel owner for giving a chance to serve (others).

Thank the food you are serving.

When you are about to serve food, say three times, “LOVE THANKS DIVINE” and serve.

Write in a piece of paper “CHICORY, HEATHER” and keep it in your pocket.

Explanation

Whenever you seek money from others or from your office in the form of promotion/salary hike, the basic Bach Flower remedy is: CHICORY

Seeker to become the sought: HEATHER

Thieves cannot escape

Naran

Ragu and Rama returned from Dubai.  Rama and Sita were childhood classmates and friends.  The couple met Sita in a restaurant.

During the conversation Rama mentioned that she wanted to sell jewelry worth around two lakhs.  Sita said that she would help her in the sale as she knows some jeweler.

Next day she met Rama, took the jewels and left him, promising to get a good bargain. For a week there was no news from her.

Rama got worried and kept calling her.  She always promised to meet them but never turned up.

After a fortnight they went to her place. The watchman told them that they are not there. He just enquired whether they had given any jewels to her.

He also tells them that they will not get back their jewels.  They become panicky and after my advice, they took the Bach Flower Remedies SWEET CHESTNUT and CHESTNUT BUD.

CHESTNUT BUD was sent through distance to Sita.

In their next visit, Sita’s husband threatens them that he will break their legs in case they come again.

They took WILLOW and ROCK WATER and went again.

This time Sita’s husband asked them to contact Sita’s grandmother.  If she tells Sita then she will definitely listen.  He also confesses that this how she brings problems to him.

The couple then contacted Sita’s grandmother.  She in turn scolded and told Sita to return the jewels.  Sita returned the jewels worth about 1.75 lakhs.  The remaining was sold.

The couple was relieved and happy because maximum amount was retrieved.

This is the power of Chestnut Bud.  Chestnut Bud will bring back the thief and the items.

Explanation

For desperate situations, SWEET CHESTNUT is required.

Rock Water and Chestnut Bud persons are always together.  When you find a thief (Chestnut Bud) to confront them as a cop you need to take ROCK WATER.

For resentment against that person: WILLOW

Peaceful Visit

Anita

You asked me to chant “AGRIMONY HEATHER WATER VIOLET HOLLY HORNBEAM” when I was about to visit my mother’s place, expecting some issues with some of my family members.

Thanks for your advice my visit to my mother’s house was peaceful.

I did the chanting throughout my visit.

THANKS ONCE AGAIN it was only because of your timely advice I could come back without any drama and confrontation from my brother and his wife. I am really blessed to have come in contact with you.

Prayer to Forgive

KC

My elder sister bothers me a lot. She is a kind of person “my way or highway” and very difficult to deal with. For 4 years, she is sapping my energy.

Naran

Chant “WILLOW! Help me to forgive …. (name of your sister) and extend my love to her”.

Explanation

The Bach Flower Remedy Willow helps us to release our resentment.

So, we are doing a prayer to Willow to help us to forgive and love somebody.

A Prayer to Willow, from the ‘Meditation on Bach Flowers’ CD:

Hey the golden-yellow Willow, I just prostrate to you. When I have any difficulty or suffering, if I think, “Why should it happen to me” come to my help Willow.

Instill faith in me. If I say, my prayers are unanswered Willow teach me to have more faith in God!

Willow when I sulk with resentment or bitterness, help me regain my sense of humor and faith in God!
