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.

How to Use Bach Flower Remedies

Chanting the Bach Flower Remedies

Chanting the flower name means is that we had surrendered to the flowers, as we don’t know what else to do. So it works for the same reason. In addition, we release the emotions and thoughts with help of flowers as otherwise whatever we think will happen.

There are no side-effects, as see even chanting the flower works. They are like switch words and influence the subconscious mind. Though the pills are a medium through which the flowers do their work and they give a different sort of experience.

Chanting for others

Chanting works even if the concerned person who needs healing doesn’t do it. May be after seeing the results, next time when they face a similar situation they might say “your chanting has helped me last time. So please do this time too!” So chant for others. It’s a gift for them.

Let us see an example. Somebody living in a different town and they are feeling homesick. You may chant HONEY SUCKLE and it will work as their feelings are projection of yours. You are healed and they are then healed too. Also we are all one and the same and that’s why it is working – thus as a projection we bring people in our lives, who are similar to or complement our nature.

Using the Circle Technique

Take a piece of paper and write the name of the person within a circle. Around the circle write the name of the flower and draw a circle over it. If there are additional flowers, have a concentric circle for each of them. This distance healing method is very effective.

A case history

For vomiting during pregnancy, give SCLERANTHUS. The daughter-law of a student of Naran lives in US. The lady followed the circle method and it healed her daughter-in-law.

If you have trust and faith in Bach flowers, it will work wonders. Nature is ready to helps us in the form of flowers. Of course, it is one of the multiple ways to heal.

Heal people who are living with you

Take a glass of water cover with right hand and chant the flower names. Give the water to them. It will work, even if the concerned person doesn’t believe in Bach Flower Therapy, as it is not a belief based therapy.

You may find no harmony in your family. Put 10 to 15 pills of Harmony pack in the common drinking water. The fight will disappear. Your family members might wonder how come the fight is not there anymore. Please note here, that disharmony within us has resulted in lack of harmony within the family. Of course, we don’t find the fault with us, but find it only on others!!!

How does taking remedies by us impact others in our lives

We take different avatars during the day – BEECH avatar in the morning, WILLOW avatar in the afternoon and so on. At the most we take any of the 38 avatars identified by Edward Bach.

We invite people of a specific nature. Let us say that we are CENTAURY we might invite CHICORY bosses. It like a formula X-1 = Y+1, where X denotes Centaury and Y denotes manipulating boss. So when our Centaury nature changes, then the bosses need to change too. That’s how flower remedies work with us and others around us.

Healing the World

There are so many natural calamities happening in the world. On a regular basis to heal them, chant “SWEET CHESTNUT WILD ROSE CHESTNUT BUD” 5 to 10 minutes. Or think about the nature or the world and chant. This is what we can give back to the world.

Bach Flower Remedies completes the healing process

Bach Flower Remedies will work, though we can’t say it can work alone. It has to be used in complement with other types of healing, as it’s not a Samaya Sanjeevani (a cure for all). Though it does one thing – it completes the healing process. Thus, it doesn’t pre-suppose other healing options.

Remedy means help and not a cure. Through Bach flowers, you are helping the person. There are instances even one dosage has changed a person completely.

Flowers are Life-Changers

Each and every flower gives a unique experience. To gain that, do the following: take one flower remedy 3 times a day for 7 days, listen to the conversations that are happening around you, whom we meet and our life incidents. You will learn something that will change your life forever!!!

Complementing and Opposing Companions of Life!!!

R Mohan

Am I talking about our beloved life travellers in people’s lives – spouse or family members, who take different avatars in different times of our life? No, I am talking about the Bach Flower Remedies here.

Opposite Poles attract each other

Let me share my experiences here. I am a typical, typical Impatiens (Bach Flower Remedy) type. For that matter, all the male members of my family are impatient. So we end up meeting Scleranthus-type personalities. I thought so and believed so.

In this regard, it is not uncommon for me to address my close friends and my too good colleagues as Scleranthus. Surprisingly, one day Naran prescribed me Scleranthus.  In addition, he told me that I need to take it for at least 6 months.

After one year, I was shocked to realize that I need to continue to take it for six more months, as Scleranthus-types change slowly (no doubt as Scleranthus is prescribed for procrastinating types).

Thus, when an Impatiens attracts Scleranthus, a Centaury attracts Vine or Chicory, or a Pine attracts Water Violet or Beech, if one remedy is given, the opposite type remedies also has to be given for chronic cases.

Like Father Like Son

I thought I am a rebellion. In the end, I end-up becoming like my father in certain cases. For example, I am happier in doing things myself. Two years back Naran asked me to take Beech as well as Water Violet. The reason being, Water Violet type personalities sometimes become mixed with Beech qualities, finding lack of perfection in work of others.

Now (after two years, I understand lately – a Scleranthus Brain hmm :)), I understand that in all my work-related stuff I behave either as a Beech (criticizing others’ ways) or as a Water Violet (working as a solitary with a big superiority complex and this I humbly accept this criticism about myself).

Similarly, Holly and Vine complement each other. Likewise, there are other remedies complementing some other remedies.

One inside another

Yet another combination I had taken on a regular basis is – Gentian and Hornbeam. My best recommendation so far to my friends are Walnut (resist to change) Gentian and Hornbeam. Any activity will go on without fail and interruptions. You may add Pine to that combination, if you have a low self-esteem.

Naran was explaining to me about this combination a week back. A Hornbeam person, if he starts, he will complete. However, a Gentian person will get stuck up immediately.

I asked him, why then he had prescribed me both? After all, they are attacking different issues that are contradictory to each other, isn’t it? He replied, a person who has a starting trouble, will also have stuck-up issues in the middle. One is inside other, completing each other.

I am confused, I remarked. He replied that I need not worry as he is planning to take a class on multi-dimensional aspects of Bach Flower Remedies sometime during the month of November. It would clarify all my doubts.

So folks, let us catch during the month of November. Hopefully, and as always, it will clarify not only the different aspects of Bach Flower Remedies, but will also clarify some of our life issues as well.

Have a Great Deepavali

Good Luck

Flowers for Harmony in Relationships and Family

For harmony in relationships and family, I have formed certain combinations:

  • The standard combination I give is Beech, Willow, Walnut, Cherry plum and Chicory
  • Another one I give is Agrimony, instead of Cherry plum (Agrimony Beech Willow Walnut Chicory)
  • Agrimony, Beech, Walnut and Wild Rose is another one
  • Finally: Beech, Walnut, Holly, Willow and Cherry plum
  • Project the flowers Sweet Chestnut, Holy, Vine, Water violet for violence in the world

How to finalize the combination required?

Based on the symptoms and situations mentioned below, decide which combination suits you:

  • Somebody wants peace give them Agrimony combination. Where there is Agrimony, there is peace. Just to maintain peace, they will not blame or criticise anybody.
  • Beech: for fault-finding and criticizing
  • Willow: blaming others for our problems
  • Walnut: for any two person to adjust with each other
  • Chicory: not to be possessive. The possessive mentality will lead to suspicion.
  • Cherry Plum: in the midst of a conflict, one should not loose control.
  • In the family there will be a lot of hatred and suspicion: Chicory and Holly.
  • Wild rose: when we are not able to come out of the rut. Wild rose will liberate us from the problem. Wild rose will give inner motivation to live the life in full and not to loose interest.

Get out of prison – any prison?

Somebody is in jail.  To bring them out Sweet Chestnut, Wild rose and Chestnut bud.

Beware! Being Impatient Will Take More Time Than Usual!

(Bach Flower) Impatiens Person

  • He is an impatient person. He manages to attract lazy people – Scleranthus people, who postpone doing things by saying that they have enough time.
  • For an Impatiens person, time is important, while the person opposite him does not feel so. His train will leave at 12 noon. But, he will arrive at the station by 10 am. His wife will be so patient that she will start her preparations to leave only by 10 AM. He will turn into Beech and Willow.

We want to finish our tasks faster when we are stuck in a traffic jam or a queue. Bach Flower Remedy Impatiens or Animal Spirit Guide Wolf will help you in such situations to finish them faster.

Don’t get impatient, for you may never arrive at your destination

One day a neighbour of mine was planning to go to a Jewellery shop by 10 am. His plan is to leave the house by 9 AM and come back before 12 noon as per the instructions of his astrologer. Being an impatient person, he told his relatives to join him the day before. He informed them in advance on his plan of action.

At 9 am, except for the two – which includes his wife, everybody was ready. When he yelled at his wife, he fell down. Now everybody could go except for him to the Jewellery shop!

Beware what you pray for…as you will get it!

Shanti prayed to Animal Spirit Guide Wolf, “Today I am paying fees for my son’s education. Nobody should be there, so that I can finish my work faster”. 

It does what you ask it to do. When she reached her son’s school, nobody was in the counter, including the cashier!

She became Willow, as she thought Wolf did not help her. She criticized that the cashiers did not know their responsibilities, as they were absent. She failed to see the notice that it was a holiday for the collection counter at the school (so impatient!).

So be careful in forming the intention, as you will get exactly what you want!  

Impatient persons expect that every event properly done. Therefore, they will go one hour earlier to others.

Bach Flower Remedies for Pregnancy

Mimulus

During entire period of pregnancy, Mimulus can be used, for there will be a scan every three months. Fear of scan; fear of being reported thyroid problem; “What if the doctor says something bad about the position of foetus?” These fearful thoughts can be healed by Mimulus.

Scleranthus person will postpone, while an Impatiens would like to have the delivery immediately. Therefore, Scleranthus and Impatiens is a good combination during the last stages of pregnancy, to have the delivery on time.

Cerato and Chestnut Bud
