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.

To know more about such interesting facts about Bach Flower Remedies, please attend the workshop by Naran S Balakumar, at Bangalore, on 14th Dec, 2013. Other details will be provided later.

Don’t calculate what you spend

Ram

I am suffering from Varicocele problem.

Naran

Varicocele is similar to varicose veins; but the site of problem is scrotum.

There is a block of blood flow; built-up or accumulation of venous blood. There is no space to go and therefore, there is back flow.

Take the flower remedies CHICORY for holding on to what all is not needed.

The person’s stingy nature – calculating every penny that is being spent – is one of the causes. Giving or spending with a wry face, is the nature of the family.

Pessimistic attitude is another reason. GENTIAN is the remedy for that.

For removing the built up, CRAB APPLE is also needed.

For the back flow, which is against the natural flow, SCLERANTHUS is the remedy. Always having confusion, between two choices, fear of taking a decision, not doing anything in Time, calls for Bach flower remedy Scleranthus.

A combination of CHICORY, GENTIAN, SCLERANTHUS and CRAB APPLE is to be taken for 4 months.

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

My married life is like living in a hostel

My married life is like a hostel life. We two are living like roommates only. He is taking food, and bathing at his mother’s home, coming only in the late evening after finishing all his routines. He is not willing to go out with me.

We two are working and have problems in money matters.

In-laws also wanted to keep him with them at all times. He is the third son. All others in family are well attached to their families blessed with all boons and children. But I am living like sanyasi and no children after seven years of marriage. Not all are co-operating even for small things also. Undergoing treatment and that too not successful till date.

Born in a poor temple’s priest family and after many struggles and hard work, completed my graduation and currently earning a small income monthly. But in-laws need my money fully and problem created there and we came separately. After that also they are begging for money from my husband.

He believes them and not trusting me. I am doing and thinking everything for our welfare only. But he does not understand me. Not going out with me, but willing to go with others.

I am working from my young age. So I don’t want to quit the job and be idle. But in a joint-family I have to give all money to them.

We are separate now but my life is like a sanyasi life.

All my relations are coming with their partners. But I am going alone to all functions. He is not at all willing to come out with me.

Gone through your site and all mantras are well, good and useful.

I am a devotee of Shridi Sai Baba and I trust the reply given by you is the remedy given by Guru Shridi Sai. Jai Sairam. Sainath Maharaj Ki Jai.

Naran

Throughout our life, we hunt for love, needing caring and affection from others. When we don’t get it, we fail to understand that we are demanding more and more from a person who does not have what we want. Instead, we hang on to him.

Our demand annoys him and he distances himself away. The paradox is he married you with the intention that you would give him love. There is an unconscious decision is your life before birth that you will always give love to your husband without any expectation. Now instead of giving, you want to receive. That is why you are not getting.

Instead of trying to get, become a giver. That is why you are named Someshwari.

Give love even when there is no receiving.

Giving love without expecting to receive will make you magnanimous.

Thank every person and every event in your life daily.

Meditate on Sai Baba, reminding yourself of his anecdotes of Divine love and visualize his love filling up your heart. Then from your heart let his love flow through your hands to your husband and his family.

Do this daily. Thank them. Pray for them.

Chant the following: “CHICORY, CHERRY PLUM, TOGETHER FIND DIVINE LOVE WITH”.

Chant this as many times as possible.

Faith and Endurance will carry us forward.

Write this in a paper and keep it under the pillow.

Sharing the Success Formula

M A K

I am a fan of yours.

My father was a sub-share broker and I was young I used to follow all his work. As I grew up I had some hard times, could go to college but finished some studies. I am well versed with software and I am into business.

My father always used to say that I should concentrate in shares business but that was not going into my head I was more concentrating in my other business. Before 6 months I had a thought of going into shares business, I went but I have lost money. My 6th sense says that I can do well in it. But then to I lost the money.

After reading from your article I have started taking GORSE, ROCK ROSE, SCELERANTHUS, CERATO, OLIVE, PINE, SWEET CHESTNUT, CHESTNUT BUD, MUSTARD, and WHITE CHESTNUT. Kindly guide me

Naran

These remedies should not be combined in a reckless manner and taken.

1.       When you want to understand the nuances or intricacies of share trading take MUSTARD AND OAK.

2.       When you are asking people or referring some articles about how to go about in share business, take CERATO.

3.       When you invest in shares take SCLERANTHUS and GENTIAN. And continue to take it. This will help you to come out of “this or that” confusion. If this confusion is there, you will wrongly invest in a share, which after investment will go down. I.e., when you want the share to go up, it will come down and so on. To prevent this SCLERANTHUS and GENTIAN.

4.       Share is always a business of luck one has no choice but to accept what is happening. If there is a failure and if you are de-motivated take GENTIAN and WILD ROSE. This will increase your internal motivation.

5.       In spite of all these remedies, sometimes, you may take a wrong decision, and later regret the decision. At that time, take HONEYSUCKLE and to learn from mistakes take CHESTNUT BUD.

6.       When you are desperate about anything take SWEET CHESTNUT.

7.       Daily chant the switch words, “FIND DIVINE ORDER SHARE TRADING” (share trading is not a switch word)

Best of Luck

Bonding and Healing Relationships with Red Rose

My most respected teacher Balakumar,

I wish to share with you in detail the miracle that has occurred today in our home. I want this to be shared with all our friends and learners so that their faith in flowers and healing will be doubled.

Yesterday I called Naran at noon. My mother aged 84, has been in a very angry mood past 2 weeks. She has been rude to the helpers / attendant – who are threatening to leave. I tried all the healing methods taught to me by Naran and felt I must not bother him with this.

But yesterday when things went out of hand, I phoned him. Within a minute after listening to my long story, he just said, “Put (Bach Flower Remedies) Chicory, Holly and Willow for your mother. Place Red Rose flower in water in her room – maybe under her bed or wherever she sits. Change the Rose after every three days. All will be well. You will see the change”.

I have only Chicory at home. We live in Kanchipuram and I had no way of getting the other two flower essences.  I just began chanting them keeping my mother in mind. I prayed to the flowers to go to her and heal her. My husband and my friend Vasanthi – who stays upstairs, also began chanting.

At night Amma (mother) went to sleep saying she will call her bank tomorrow. See how much money she has and decide whether to continue living with us or move out on her own. She does not want the helpers but wants me to do everything for her. This is difficult since I have to go out of the house for work, travel etc for long periods sometimes and she is not able to do anything for herself. This was a very delicate situation since we cannot send our 84-year old mother away anywhere.

We fervently prayed at night and kept chanting of three Bach Flowers going. I filled her water bottle with Chicory and Walnut. In addition, I intended Holly and Willow, keeping my hands around the bottle. I also put Sun symbol on the bottle and desperately asked for help!

This morning she was still angry but quiet. I was wondering how and where to get Red Rose in Kanchipuram.  Vasanthi said she will ask teachers in school and tell me. I was sipping my first cup of tea outside, when I saw the flower seller with her basket calling at the neighbour’s house. I have seen her rarely. Today being Friday she was there. I saw only Saamandi flowers in her basket.  I was just about to ask her where to get Red Rose, when she looked at me and said, “Amma you never buy flowers. Do you want some red roses?” I was taken aback. She showed me five roses in her basket – all of them being red. I bought them, placed them in water and put them in mother’s room.

I felt a surge of gratitude in my heart for the kindness of the flowers. The power of intent and genuine prayer made them come home to us. It also made us aware that the UNIVERSE is HEARING us all the time.

 Amma had her bath and sat for her Pooja. She was still angry!

I was so surprised a little later when a teacher from the school came home and said, “Elder Sister, I am on my way to school, here are some Red Roses for your pooja. It is my wedding day today, Please bless us!” She brought 3 beautiful cut red roses! I placed them in water in front of (Aurobindo) MOTHER’S Picture where Amma comes and sits near the dining table.  I couldn’t speak for a while.

At 10 am, Amma called the banker and spoke with him. She called me to her room at 11 am.  She said, “I have talked with the banker, I realise that the interest I get monthly is not enough to sustain me anywhere. You are taking care of all my needs, feeding me so well, caring for me and even taking care of my servants. I am grateful to you and (my husband) Guru for this.  I will not go anywhere. I understand how difficult it is for you, when I get angry with the helpers. I shall try to be kind and will do what I can to make life easier for you.  In fact, I am a very practical person, so I want to continue living here. I want Guru and you to go wherever you need to. Don’t worry about me. I will manage with all the helpers you have provided”.

Please readers, I am NOT EXAGGERATING, This is EXACTLY what happened. If this is NOT the power of the flowers, then what is it? My Humble Pranams to Balakumar, our teacher, to the flowers and to the Healing Angels. I feel so humbled by this experience and also have a renewed Faith in the power of healing.  PEACE be to ALL.

Don’t Feel Sorry for Buying the Sari

How to Improve Your Decision Making Process

Buying Saris – a Common Example 🙂

Let us say, you are visiting Pothis – the cloth supermarket. You don’t know what clothes to choose – churidhar, saris etc. You are confused.

First Type of Confusion

Which section to go – first floor, second floor and so on?

Take Bach Flower Remedy Wild Oat. We don’t know where to go as we haven’t made up our mind on what to buy. Wild Oat will take you to the section you need to go.

Now you have decided to go to the sari section after chanting Wild Oat.

Second Type of Confusion

You like a particular sari. But you ask the opinion of your friends about your choice. This indicates the Bach Flower Remedy Cerato.

Third Type of Confusion

On the other hand, if you are confused about two different choices you have made, then it indicates the remedy Scleranthus.

In this type of confusion, your confusion is within yourself. Firstly you may pick up two saris; then you discard the first one and pick up another one; again you will get confused what to pick up between the two. You may discard the previous one and select one more. The confusion is always between the two, “This or That”, “Blue or Green” or “This Green or That Green.”

Now comes the pressure from outside

Make up your mind, the shop keeper says, as they are about to close the shop. You become impatient. Take Bach Flower Remedy Impatiens.

Sorry for the Sari

After buying a sari and when you come back home, if you think that you could have picked the other one and thus regretting your decision then it indicates Honey Suckle.

Non-stop Cursing

If you keep worrying, ‘why I made that mistake’ then it indicates White Chestnut.

Different Life Situations where you need to make decisions

  1. Somebody wants to marry X. Are you planning to say yes? 2 to 5 times chant Honeysuckle and then say yes or no. You won’t regret your decision.
  2. You have confusion between choosing this or that. You won’t be able to come to a decision and be indecisive. Take Scleranthus.
  3. In an exam for a multiple-choice question, you think two choices are correct. You don’t know which one is the right one. Which one is the correct answer? Thanks to Scleranthus you will be able to choose the right answer.
  4. Wild Oat is also for confusion. After completing schooling (plus two exam), different options are available. Out of 7 to 8 majors, the student is not able to select one. This is high-tech confusion.
  5. You don’t know what remedy to choose. Can I combine all 38 remedies together? Take Wild Oat and give your patient Wild Oat also. Next day he will come with a few options, for example he might say, “I am absent minded”. Then we don’t need to worry about the choice of remedy. You can give him Chestnut Bud straight away.
  6. Ask opinions from different people but will not come to a conclusion (Cerato).
  7. A Scleranthus person will not consult others.

You don’t need to take remedies for these situations. Just chant them as per the need of the hour. It will work for you.
