From the Bach Flower Workshop, Bangalore 2013
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.
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.

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

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.
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

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!!!
