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.

Choose the Right Option

Shashi

My husband’s promotion is due this year. Since last 2 years this is getting delayed. So, he is feeling very depressed and frustrated. Also, he has an opportunity to go to Indonesia from the same company.

But, once he goes there and does not like it, then he cannot come back and re-join. Also, considering his age factor and qualification, it will be difficult for him to get another job. He is in a dilemma whether to take Indonesia option or to remain here.

Naran

Ask him to take SCLERANTHUS, the Bach flower remedy, three doses of 5 pills.

Chant SHIVOHUM continuously for 20 minutes in the morning and night before sleep.

Explanation

Let Shiva’s intelligence guide me: SHIVOHUM

When you have to choose one of two options available to you: SCLERANTHUS

A Sound Financial Plan

Creation of Wealth

When you find yourself with insufficient money, try to find new sources, ways – sources by which you can earn more:

  • ELM and OAK – for inadequacy of mind to think ways of improving finance; to think differently
  • GORSE – if you have no hopes or if you think to all sources are exhausted, feeling hopeless of getting any additional money
  • LARCH – to be more confident of creating wealth

If you are in business:

  • Think how to add more value to the products or add other products of more value.

If you are in job, ask simply:

  • “How can I add more value to my work”,
  • “What I had to do so that I am wanted more”,
  • “How will I make my job more valuable” and
  • “How will I contribute 100%”.

When you say or think that I am already working more than 16 hours – take OAK + OLIVE + HORNBEAM to work smartly and finish in less time.

If you are in business, or a salesman, ask yourself:

“How can I reach more in less time” or

“How can I reach more customers” then

Take VERVAIN + OAK + OLIVE.

Have a plan to spend and invest

Suddenly an advertisement comes and we spend carried away by it and regret later.

Not to do any impulsive purchase – CHERRY PLUM + HONEY SUCKLE

Or stop spending all when there is money – WILD ROSE

Enjoy your wealth

  1. Thank divine, your work, office everyday for your earning.
  2. Thank your expenses
  3. Stop your feeling of jealousy about the rich and come out of it by saying “ I AM SORRY, PLEASE FORGIVE ME, LOVE THANK DIVINE”
  4. Find out your beliefs about money and release them
  5. Chant the Switch Words – “TOGETHER FIND COUNT DIVINE NOW”
  6. Do the Mudras – ACCEPTANCE MUDRA and VITALITY MUDRA, each for 15 minutes.
  7. Daily morning – rotate all the 7 chakras clock-wise by intending “Keep rotating clockwise at optimum speed.”

When you have too much worry and confusion about finance, take WHITE CHESTNUT + SCLERANTHUS + RESCUE REMEDY in the night.

Try the following on each day and find which combination gives you the money you want or require:

MORNING    – one combination each day and repeat

MIMULUS, PINK TOURMALINE (1st day)

MIMULUS, RUBY (2nd day)

MIMULUS, CAT’S EYE (3rd day)

MUSTARD, DIAMOND (4th day)

Daily afternoon to evening

A Brief on Bach Flower Remedies Part I

Introduction to Bach Flower Remedies

There are 39 Bach Flower Remedies.

They can play a very important role in a person’s life.

First of all we need to understand that:

  • We are not the mind
  • We are not our thoughts
  • We are not our emotions
  • We are above that.
  • That means I can watch my reaction and able to say, ‘I feel angry’, ‘I am worrying now’ and so on. This technique of self observation has to come to you.

Why I need to observe myself?

The moment you start watching the mind, the mind will stop its normal course of reacting automatically.

How our mind exists? It exists due to our thoughts and emotions.

When you start observing your thoughts and emotions, your mind will stop thinking. Therefore, it will not exist to influence us.

How do I practice this self-observation?

What are the steps to analyze our mind?

  • Whenever something happens, talk to yourself, “This is what is happening to me. This is my thought. And these are my emotions”.
  • In addition, ask a question, “Can I change my reaction”. This simple question will change your reaction.
  • Our reactions are automatic. When we change it, the result has to be different. How?

When your reaction is ‘A’ result ‘B’ happens. When you change your reaction to ‘C’, result ‘B’ cannot happen. It has to change.

Are there any tools available to change our reactions

Why should I change my actions in a different way? Is there is any help available to me for me to change effortlessly?

Yes, it is available in the form of Bach Flower Remedies. Just by taking the Bach Flower Remedies in the form of pills you can achieve the following:

  • Reduce your anger, violence and worries.
  • Establish harmony and make your life peaceful.
  • By all means, achieve anything and resolve any type of problem.

Power to Achieve

Hibiscus

“The power needed in yoga is the power to go through effort, difficulty or trouble without getting fatigued, depressed, discouraged or impatient and without breaking off the effort or giving up one’s aim or resolution.”

– The Mother

When can you use this flower?

  • For any obstacle or hindrance
  • If there is a delay, obstruction, opposition or restriction, for example, if there is a delay in getting the offer.  What can you do then? You can take the picture and meditate upon it. 
  • Just look at it for a while, if the project or something else is delayed. Let us say, marriage is delayed.
  • If there is a stumbling block in your way, say a person is hindering, sabotaging or preventing you from doing anything…
  • You are stopped from getting a promotion…“Let this girl need not get a job, a colleague might work towards it”

These can be categorized as obstruction, prevention and sabotage. In all these areas of problems, the Hibiscus flower can be used as a beautiful remedy.

The Hibiscus with this color only (Hawaii Hibiscus flower) has got that healing power. In fact, Mother has discussed about 15 varieties of Hibiscus flowers. Only the Hawaii Hibiscus flower has the qualities I have mentioned.

Have a look at the picture of the Hibiscus flower. You are blessed if you just get an opportunity to see it. Both the picture and pills of the flowers are available in the centre. The original flower is from Hawaii. Outside of the flower will be in yellowish orange, while its inside is red in color.

My Sister Lost a Baggage

C. MuraliKrishnan

Two days back (Dec 14th night) my sister was travelling from Chennai to Madurai by train. At that time somebody had taken her baggage and left the train. She noticed that after 5 min, once the train has started to move. Therefore, she was helpless and gave a complaint to the Railway Police. She was very upset about the incident, as she has kept 2 lakhs worth Jewellery in the baggage that was lost.

I was seeking my friends circle for help. That time, yesterday (Dec 16th), one of my friends asked me to chant a mantra (ELM GORSE ROCK ROSE). He told to continuously chant this mantra, believe myself, and then I would get the baggage.

So yesterday night onwards my sister was chanting this mantra. Today, in the evening, she got the call from the person who had taken the baggage by mistake. He told her that they took the baggage by mistake. Asked sorry for their late reply and they will produce the baggage in the night, at her place.

We believed in this mantra and want to know more details about your teaching process…

Then I saw other Bach Flower Remedies in the form of some treatment tips. You have given so many mantras for different problems. That’s why I want to know the details. Please reply as soon as possible.

Naran

Elm, Gorse and Rock rose are Bach Flower Remedies that are available in Homeopathy shop, which we are supposed to take when we have certain mental states. However, from my experience and experiences of my students and patients, I had found that even chanting the names of the flower names produces results, as in the case of your sister. Thanks for sharing her experience and your interest to know about the remedies.

Rock Rose: For getting panic. Your sister would have started panicking moment she realised that she had lost her baggage.

Gorse: when we become hopeless

Elm: for overwhelming situations

Every aspect of my life is shining

Sandy

I have been taking SCLERANTHUS, PINE and IMPATIENS as recommended by you since the last few days. One change I can see is that since starting the pills I started exercising everyday willingly. Previously though, I knew I have to exercise, but I could not get myself to exercise J

Sandy (Next day)

Since taking SCLERANTHUS, PINE and IMPATIENS, I have become more active, exercise every day, and have more control on eating. Today I cleaned my house for 4 hours. Every corner of the house is shining

Sandy (After 10 days)

Naran, Good Morning! I started taking SCLERANTHUS, PINE and IMPATIENS as suggested by you around 10 days ago, and in these 10 days I have lost 3 KGS OF WEIGHT as I feel active, and can control my eating and exercising. DIVINE THANKS!!!

Explanation

Getting impatient at the last-minute: IMPATIENS

Will feel guilty for postponing and not getting the things done: PINE

These three remedies will act in synergy with one another.

Got my US Visa approved after lots of issues

Dear Naran,

Below is the case history you had wanted me to send you, Sorry about the delay… I want to mail you after I got my passport, which I got only on Monday.

Archana

I came to the US about 3 years back on Student Visa (F1) and after finishing my studies I applied for a Professional Working visa (H1B) this year. After my 2 year studies I had an OPT period of one year, where I will be allowed to work legally in the area of my study.

During my OPT period I had a personal emergency and had to travel to India. I was not aware that during this period if I leave the country, I will not be given the “Change of Status” automatically (from F1 to H1B). Without obtaining the new status, I won’t be eligible to work.

In addition, to get the H1B status I will have to go to my home country immediately after my OPT expiry, get the H1B stamping and then come back into US.

To make matters worse, my employer had forgotten that I had travelled too.

About 3 weeks back my employer received the H1 documents and this issue came to light. I was asked to go to India immediately for my H1 stamping. The situation now is such that if anyone goes to India for their stamping they are held back there for about a minimum of 2-3 months, as they have very strict rules in place now. Some of my friends who left this year beginning have still not  returned back.

The only option for me was to try and go to a neighbouring country. But, the catch was since this is my first H1 stamping I will have to go to my home country.

The second concern is that there is no guarantee that the consulate I go to for my interview will have my information available in their system. In that case, if I turn up for my interview and my details don’t exist in their database I will have to stay in that country till my information reflects in their system (for about 10-15 days).

Or the worse situation will be I will be asked to go to my home country for my stamping. I didn’t have a choice but to risk it all and give it a try.

I immediately got in touch with Naran S Balakumar and he asked me to chant “GORSE WILD ROSE SCLERANTHUS MIMULUS”.

Last week, I left the US for my visa stamping. The day I was leaving the US I got in touch with Naran again. I told him about the uncertainty I was facing. He asked me to chant “WATER VIOLET ROCK WATER LARCH GENTIAN WILD ROSE”. In addition, I have to call upon the animal spirit “WOLF”, request Wolf to interview me and ensure my details be available in the consulate’s system.

Fortunately, I had one of the best experiences ever, as my friend’s father is a Diplomat in the Indian Embassy. Due to which, I got a “Red Carpet” greeting during my visit. I stayed at my friend’s parent’s house for about a week. On the day of my interview to my astonishment I was asked only 2 questions – one about my employment and the other about why I had come there for stamping rather than going to my home country. That’s it! No more questions! My Visa was approved!!!

What made the whole experience pleasant and memorable is that I was in a foreign land where I had a place to stay. I was taken care of very well. And everything was taken care off for me!!!

I am very grateful to Naran S Balakumar for all his help during this difficult time.

Thanks,

Explanation

GORSE: when you feel hopeless about a situation

WILDROSE: not to become apathetic if visa application is rejected

SCLERANTHUS: for the confusion, whether to go back to India or not

MIMULUS: fear of getting Visa application rejected

WATER VIOLET, ROCK WATER, LARCH, GENTIAN and WILDROSE: a good combination to get your visa or get our done in the Indian government offices.

WOLF: the animal spirit can be called upon for any kind of help
