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

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.

The fortune part is Mimulus can minimise any expenditure. Normal delivery will cost less than caesarean delivery. In other words, Mimulus throughout pregnancy will pave for normal delivery!

Wherever there is specific fear, Mimulus has to be there to help you.

Red Chestnut

During development of foetus, the mother will worry, “Will my child’s brain will be well developed? Will its health be good? Will the child be without any problem?” Through out pregnancy Red Chestnut has to be given.

Rescue Remedy

At the time of delivery, pain is intensive. The pregnant women can chant Rescue Remedy. Others close to her have to take Rescue Remedy and Red Chestnut. Write the name of the patient and circle it with Rescue Remedy, as because pregnant women can’t chant it, for pain will be too much then. Be sure the delivery will be normal and smooth.

Agrimony

During 8th month of pregnancy, the lady will be affected by restless leg syndrome. Agrimony and Impatiens can heal it.

Scleranthus

It’s a good remedy for nausea and vomiting, especially during the 3rd month. 9th month starting, the doctor will fix up the date for delivery. As the date gets near we get impatient (Impatiens). 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

To beget intelligent children, to make sure the IQ of the child is good, flower remedies is the best choice. One can listen to the Bach Flower Meditation CD by Naran S Balakumar.

Walnut

During entire period of pregnancy every month is a transition. Therefore, Walnut is the remedy.

Olive

If there is total physical exhaustion

Harmony at Home

If during pregnancy, peaceful harmonious atmosphere is to be there at home, for which Beech Willow, Agrimony, and Cherry Plum can be helpful.

Special Remedies for Pregnancy

Let Eshwar Protect

This is a combination to be given throughout the pregnancy: Elm, Sweet Chestnut, Hornbeam, Walnut, Aspen and Red chestnut.

Elm: Person has to manage oneself. It expands the mental ability and physical vitality of the mother. Sweet Chestnut: for the divine grace if a child has to be born safely. Hornbeam: continuous movement; Walnut: for transition. Aspen whatever unknown fear one has. Most of the time, the pregnant woman can not figure out the fear. Red Chestnut: concern for the growing baby.

The first letter of each of the remedies if coined together will form the name, ‘ESHWAR’. If there is a grace of Eshwar – Lord Siva, everything will go on well.

Fifth Month of Pregnancy

Chicory: foetus will start feeling the touch of the mother at the end of the 5th month. Either you can chant all the flower names or listen to Bach Flower Remedy meditation CD. As per Ayurveda, mind starts developing from 5th month of pregnancy. Thanks to flowers, the mind of children will develop well and will be able to understand better. In addition, so many mental faculties will develop better in the child.

Sixth Month of Pregnancy

IQ and brain development: Oak, Chestnut Bud, Cerato, Hornbeam, Walnut and Clematis. For 5 minutes, chant the remedies and keep the hands on the belly (womb). This will help in both right and left brain development and the child will be highly intelligent.

From the 8th month onwards

Add Gentian and Hornbeam to the above combination. Add gentian to combination so that there is no regression in the foetus. Around 8th month, the mother will not be able to sleep properly and will be tossing in the bed – Scleranthus is the remedy. When dates are announced, Scleranthus and Impatiens. Whenever the pregnant women go for checkups, Mimulus has to be given. For easy and natural delivery: bio-26 – this Bio salt is available in homeopathy shops. From the 4th month onwards, four tablets, three times a day.

Ninth Month

The mother-to-be is admitted in the hospital. Pain will increase. Give her Rescue Remedy. As her parents can’t bear their daughter cry, give them Rescue Remedy with Red Chestnut.

After Delivery

White Chestnut and Walnut has to be given to the mother. 1st or 2nd day breast feeding will be difficult – Elm and Chestnut Bud. After the delivery, in the bathing water, add Walnut and Star of Bethlehem (need not be given orally to child) or you can chant them to baby’s ears. After 15 days, it can be given orally. For child and mother, if there is fluid in the ear, give them Heather and Crab Apple.
