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.

Over-eating

M

I know eating every 2-3 hour is good. But I don’t eat fruits or other healthy food. If there are biscuits, sweets and rice, I will eat that.

Even at night I eat something around 2-3 a.m. too. How to stop this habit and start eating healthy meal? I am not attracted towards junk food even if it is in fridge.

I’m overweight too and trying to reduce weight.  I lost it but I gained again.

Naran

Take the flower remedies WHITE CHESTNUT, WALNUT and CHERRY PLUM to stop this.

M

Still I’m eating whatever in my fridge and kitchen – sweets etc.

I don’t know whether it’s real hunger or what. Or I feel bored, so I eat.

Pls help to stop this and so that I eat healthy food, and can do some exercise.

Naran

Take the flower remedies WALNUT and CHERRY PLUM daily two pills each four times a day for a month.

Explanation

To Control over-eating and impulsiveness: CHERRY PLUM

Not to feel bored and eat and to break the habit: WALNUT

To come out of continuous eating: WHITE CHESTNUT

Flower Remedies Drops vs. Pills

Krikar

I have a doubt. I want to take Mimulus + Aspen + Larch. Can I mix all medicine drops with water? Or I give some gap between these medicines?

Someone told me that a sugar pill is better than drops.  How many drops are good to take at a time?  How many times a day?

Naran

Both drops and pills have same effect.

MIMULUS and LARCH can be combined.

Why do you want to combine MIMULUS and ASPEN?

Mimulus is for specific fear and Aspen for unknown imaginary fears. Both will not exist simultaneously. For Mimulus, fear exists, while for Aspen, fear will not be present. Therefore, when there is Aspen fear, Mimulus fear will not be there. Mimulus is for specific situations – e.g., fear of diagnostic investigations, fear of something or someone.

If you want to take both the remedies, separate them. Take one in the morning and the other one in the evening. In general, when you are taking multiple remedies, give a gap of one to two minutes between them.

Listen to Bach Flower Meditation CD

Vandana

Is it necessary to chant Bach flower remedies individually for specific problems more than 100 times a day or is it enough listening to the flower meditation C.D twice a day to resolve all the problems?

Naran

It is necessary to chant as well as take Bach flower remedies individually for specific problems.

Of course, it will help you a lot to listen to the CD – which will do the necessary course corrections in your life.

A Chance to Receive the BLESSING of My LIFE

Thomas

Basically the circumstances don’t change but our perception of it changes. We realize it is 99% of the problem. Once the changes happen (inside us), then things outside also changes. My story convinces of this fact. Thanks.

About a month back I went on a trip. During this time something unexpected and miraculous happened.

I have always been timid and reticent throughout my life. Never speak much to people, never been in a romantic relationship. Always been a solitary person.

On this particular day I met a girl from another country and we started talking. We felt so comfortable with each other that we stayed together for the whole day and then the next, parting only to sleep or other essentials. It was unbelievable. It felt like we knew each other from a long time.

Things moved forward and a person who had been alone, timid and anonymous all through his life fell in love. It snowballed into a physical relationship the next day and an unprotected one at that. It was unexpected, unplanned and felt pure and right at the time.

We parted on the fourth day, very sad and confused at what the future would bring. After coming back the feeling of togetherness gave way to darker feelings,

I was savaged by pangs of guilt and then fear that because of the unprotected nature of things, I may have caught something and I deserve it for what I had done. It is a sin, something wrong. It became a demon on my mind. I could neither sleep nor work.

Finally when I could bear it no longer I called Naran. He was kind and non-judgmental (my deep gratitude to him), and asked me to take the Bach Flower Remedies MIMULUS, PINE and HONEY SUCKLE.

I began taking the pills as instructed and after a few days my whole mood changed. It was amazing.

I realized that I was operating from a position of fear, guilt and anxiety – all of which were tarnishing such a beautiful gift that I had received.

In a few days she got in touch with me, against all my notions and came down and spent the rest of her trip at my city.

We got to know each other much better and we realized that we are probably are soul mates and although we are from different religions, language, nationality etc we are at peace with each other. 

I am so glad I was able to rise above the narrow and diminishing feelings of fear, guilt and anxiety and stay present to the wonderful person, experience and gift that I had got. If I had continued like that I may have lost a chance to accept a great blessing in my life!

Thank you, thank you dear Naran. God bless you and the Bach flower remedies!!!

Now we continue to stay in touch over Skype and I plan to visit her in her country. Naran has asked me to take the Bach Flower Remedies SCLERANTHUS and SWEET CHESTNUT to help guide me if she is the right life partner for me. So I feel much at peace knowing I have divine guidance to prevent me from making a wrong decision.

I am so grateful for everything!!

Deep Gratitude and Warm regards

Job Mantras

I have never been in the same job for more than 10 months. Either, I change project within the same company, so going to a different location or completely shifting to another company. Due to this, I always feel unsettled and unstable.

Naran

Take the following remedies:

  • SCLERANTHUS: The unsteady mind will always have an unsettled life. One day you have the desire to go for the job. The very next day you have resistance to go to the job (changeable mood or mood swings). Scleranthus will give you a steady and stable mind, and helps you settle down.
  • HORNBEAM: Of course steadiness in the job for 10-15 years doesn’t indicate growth. You need to move forward in life.
  • ROCK ROSE: To have determination and commitment and a “never-say-die spirit”
  • WALNUT: You would have taken this pattern from one of your parents or ancestors. To break the pattern, Walnut is needed.
  • The fifth could be any one of the following three, based on your mental states:
    • Gentian: To be upbeat and optimistic in all circumstances
    • Willow: if you have resentment and feel that your counter-parts or juniors are doing better, even though you are better qualified.
    • Larch: if you think others are smart and more capable than in utilizing their opportunities, while you are not (lack of confidence)

All remedies have to be taken separately; two pills each, with a gap of five minutes, and twice a day.

Chant the switch words:

MOVE ON FIND COUNT DIVINE JOB

Move on: now you are not in a job, so you need to move on,

Find Count Divine: to get a good salary

Job: Goal.

Abundant Support from Family and Flowers

Guru Mangala

My domestic help Anu cried saying that she has been abandoned with her child, by her husband a few years ago.

She is trying to earn and educate the boy. She lives with her poor mother, brother and sister-in-law. The sister-in-law is unhappy that this girl is being sheltered here and supported by the brother. This gives chance for lots of infighting between husband and wife. Anu feels guilty that she is the cause of her dear brother’s suffering. 

She saw me giving Bach flower remedy to my mother and asked me what that is. I told her how it works. She requested me for some flowers for herself. 

I gave her RESCUE REMEDY, PINE, CENTAURY, STAR OF BETHLEHEM, CHICORY, WHITE CHESTNUT and HONEY SUCKLE with WALNUT. 

Reasons: guilt (Pine), feeling used (Centaury), trauma/ pain (Star of Bethlehem), unable to let go/ clinging to brother (Chicory, Walnut), thoughts which haunt day and night (White chestnut) and regret of the past (Honey Suckle). 

Next morning she came smiling and said she was feeling confident that the troubles will be overcome. But within a day the sister-in-law created a huge fight and walked out of the house with her parents.  Anu was so sad and kept saying “this is all because of me.” I gave her Larch.   I gave her SWEET CHESTNUT to place in the NE corner of the room, and to sprinkle CRAB APPLE and WALNUT around the house. 

For the mother I gave RED CHESTNUT and WILLOW.

For the brother, I gave OAK, CHICORY and WALNUT.

I asked Anu to do forgiveness and told her mother also to keep forgiving the daughter-in-law.

She came running next morning, “Amma, the house is peaceful.  My sister-in-law returned and apologized to my brother. She actually fell at his feet and said she would never again fight over me.  I have also apologized to her.  We are a happy family now”.

Thank the flowers. 

Since that day, nearly 2 months ago, Anu is now happily earning extra money by working in a courier company along with my household, her son is admitted to UKG and sister-in-law helps with the boy’s studies and looks after him. There is respect for Anu and all is well.

 I am ever grateful to Naran and to the Flowers for the joy they bring to so many families. 

Anu is the local advertiser of flower power in Kanchipuram!!!  I have many people seeking   remedies.

Resentment Created an Accident

Anger Eraser Part I

An accident that was blessing in disguise

Everybody will have at least one major turning point in their life, sometimes more than one. I had one too in the form of an accident, in 2005.

Without going to the details of the accident, I wanted to share my experiences, related to my healing during that period.

Minor diseases in plenty

Post-accident I was having severe cold, cough, dizziness’ and other minor ailments. The only issue is that after fixing one, I will get another. For example, if I took some remedies to fix my cold, immediately after fixing it, I will get dizziness. Then I will be immobile for two hours.

Once that is fixed soon after that, I will get dry cough and so on. This was proving quite annoying and uncomfortable for me. I was on sick leave for more than a month and nothing seems to be improving.

Resentment about my family members

One day on a flash, I told Naran that I have a deep resentment about my family members and I consider them unfair in relation with me.

Whether they are unfair or not or whether I am fair in saying doesn’t matter here. The point of the matter is that I have resentment and that has to be fixed.

So Balakumar asked me to take the Bach Flower Remedy WILLOW whenever I feel angry about my people. As soon as I started taking it, all my episodes of the diseases stopped to a greater extent. They did come, but at a minor scale.

Moral of the story

I need to be healed irrespective of my life situation to fix the problems – physical or social. What is required here is that I need to fix my mental state.

I did that. And it changed my life a lot.

Let Others Not Cheat You

The Mother’s Red Balsam Flower

Managing mean-minded people, who wants to cheat you

If any person is mean-minded and not giving your money… One might have taken your money and he is dodging to give it. He might be avoiding you or evading you. Paste the picture on him (write his name on a paper and paste), and meditate on the flower.  Between brothers and sisters there is always a dispute whether to give the equal share to all-concerned. Then you could use this flower.

Getting donations

For voluntary agencies, to collect donations from people, they can have this picture or they could put the picture of Balsam in their letter-head. If you suggest to them, they might ask you to do it for them. For that we need to be generous.

If you visualize Balsam flower in your heart centre (chakra), you will attract people who are generous and who are not bargaining.

Making people fair to you

If anybody is unfair, aggressive, ill-tempered or spiteful, paste this picture on the name of the person (write the name in a piece of paper and paste the picture over it). Or visualize the flower in their heart centre. Thus, you can project the flowers on others the moment you think about them as they represent divine in this world.

Only Red Balsam has got the above-mentioned properties.

Sharing the property of the deceased brother, a case history

Recently a person died. That person has a brother and a sister. Within 10 days, a conflict arose between the living siblings of the deceased, over taking the property.

The sister came to me. At that time I didn’t have the color picture. Therefore, I printed the picture of the Balsam flower in black and white color and gave it to her. From the next day onwards, the quarrel about the property between them has stopped. It was resolved amicably.

Getting the generosity of others

I told her to always keep the picture with her. If you keep this flower in your heart centre, what is the message given to the other person? I am ready to give whatever you want.

Whenever you are ready to give what the other person has demanded you, then immediately the opposite person will stop his unfair demands.

Have Genuine Friends

I have no genuine friends. Is there is any remedy to get good friends? I had a couple of best friends in school and college, and many long distance good friends, but not any girlfriends whom I can call as best friends after my marriage.

Naran

1.       Yes! By taking Bach flower remedy WATER VIOLET you can get good friends. You can take 3 pills 3 times a day.

2.       You can keep the picture of Water violet in your pocket (download them or the picture is available in the Bach Flower centre).

3.       Chant Water violet.

4.       You can also write the name Water violet daily in a notebook – 20 to 30 times.
