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.

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.

Every aspect of my life is shining

Sandy

I feel confused in daily life. I feel indecisive for big as well as small decisions. What can I do to get a firm decisive mind?

Naran

Take the Bach Flower Remedies SCLERANTHUS, PINE and IMPATIENS, 3 pills of each, four times a day. These remedies are available in any homeopathy shop

Sandy

I have been taking SCLERANTHUS, PINE and IMPATIENS as recommended by you since the last few days. One change I can see is that since starting the pills I started exercising everyday willingly. Previously though, I knew I have to exercise, but I could not get myself to exercise J

Sandy (Next day)

Since taking SCLERANTHUS, PINE and IMPATIENS, I have become more active, exercise every day, and have more control on eating. Today I cleaned my house for 4 hours. Every corner of the house is shining

Sandy (After 10 days)

Naran, Good Morning! I started taking SCLERANTHUS, PINE and IMPATIENS as suggested by you around 10 days ago, and in these 10 days I have lost 3 KGS OF WEIGHT as I feel active, and can control my eating and exercising. DIVINE THANKS!!!

Explanation

For postponing tendency, for 11th hour persons: SCLERANTHUS

Getting impatient at the last-minute: IMPATIENS

Will feel guilty for postponing and not getting the things done: PINE

These three remedies will act in synergy with one another.

A typical Rock water person

(Karthik, an executive manager of a leading actor, consulted Naran, S. Balakumar regarding the problems he is facing while working inside the film industry.)

Karthik: I am a disciplined person, remaining single all my life. I meet so many celebrities in the film world. You know very well that it is a place where there is no self-control, and no discipline on the part of the individuals.

(He means drinking habits, womanizing, telling lies for their own sake, cheating people and so on. A typical ROCK WATER surrounded by CHESTNUT BUDS! Where there is a jailor/cop there are prisoners inside the jail – in one and the same place!!!)

I need to maintain my self-control, to maintain my position, until the end of my career. I am already 50 years and I have to keep up my name (image) and my parents’ name in the midst of my current situation in the film industry. My father is a self-made man. It is my duty to keep up his name. I have good respect in the industry and I have to keep it up. Earning a good name is difficult, but more difficult to keep it.

Naran: What is your daily routine? And what do you want from me?

Karthik: I am a much disciplined man. I wake up around 5 a.m. Do my yoga and then do Pooja for about one hour. From 9 a.m. I will start seeing visitors. I will have lunch around 1pm. In the night, I will do meditation for one hour before going to sleep. For dinner I will have only fruits and milk.

Naran: For a man who takes only fruits and milk in the night, what is your (health) problem then?

Karthik: I have no problems. I just want to be more self-controlled and more disciplined?

Naran: Do you have the fear of losing control? (A Rock Water person, after 50 years of age, is afraid of losing control over his self-denial of sex!)

Karthik: Yes that fear is always there. I used to tell within, “I should never lose control

Naran: Do you get angry?

Karthik: Yes, I meet a lot of people – both good and bad, and so many liars. When I come across the bad people and liars, suddenly I will lose my temper and shout at them.

Naran: What do you feel then?

Karthik: I then feel ashamed of myself for getting angry.

Naran: What values you cherish most?

Karthik: Honesty, Dignity, Respect (motto: give respect and take respect), Speaking Truth. Unfortunately I am in a place it is full of liars, dishonest persons and cheaters. I give loan. I will never get it back.

(A Rock water person feels ashamed of himself, for getting angry. While a PINE person will feel guilty after the episode of anger. One more key word for Rock Water: Feeling Ashamed; Shameful.)

Karthik: I want to develop my spirituality further. My friend told me that you prescribe flowers for such endeavors.

Naran: You require remedies for what types of growth?

Karthik: Flower for my spiritual growth and anger.

(Anger is the one emotion which a Rock Water person will try hard to control, for it is below his dignity to get angry. So Rock water person will require CHERRY PLUM. Naran wanted to find out whether there is any Chestnut Bud quality in Karthik. So he asked a question.)

Naran: Do you have any other problem, like poor memory, for example? (A poor memory indicates Chestnut Bud)

Karthik: Yes my memory is very poor, which is one of the reasons for my anger. Is there any flower for that? Please give me that too.

(A typical Rock water person is of high discipline. He has self-control, dignity and honesty. He wants to be respected. Karthik has invited Chestnut Bud people around him. Rock Water is surrounded by Chestnut Bud.)

Prescription for Karthik

He wants remedy for losing self-control – CHERRY PLUM. He wants remedy for poor memory – CHESTNUT BUD. Of course, he has to take ROCK WATER as a type remedy.

For protection, he was asked to do Violet Flame prayer “I AM a Being of Violet Fire. I AM the Purity of God’s Creation!!!”

Beware! Resentment Eats You!!!

Her father wasn’t doing well. He was admitted in a hospital nearby. However, she wanted to admit him in his friend’s hospital, expecting a better treatment there. Unfortunately, he developed an infection after he was admitted. He passed away soon after.

After her father’s death, whenever she passes that hospital she felt very angry towards his father’s friend and at the same time felt guilty for she admitted him there. This went to the extent that she wasn’t eating properly, even though it had been several months since her father’s death.

She was asked to take Pine (guilt) and Willow (resentment and blaming the doctor for her father’s infection).

Her feedback after taking the Bach Flower Remedies:

Naran, I just took one dose of Willow and Pine. I had a good appetite. After a long time, I loved the food I ate!!!

Ms. H

If you give the right remedies, even one dose will do the trick.

Naran
