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.

Getting carried away

Naran

Once you carry the Bach Flower Remedies in your pockets, you enter the energy field of the Bach flowers you are carrying.

In addition, mentally you could say few times that you have entered the energy field of so and so remedy too.

Ravi is a social worker, and he has to meet people to collect donations for his agency that caters to the needs of the old-age people. He carries with him always WALNUT and CHICORY as this is a good combination for any type of negotiations – both for money and relationship. This combination provides Win-win situations for everybody concerned.

Similar situations that demand this approach are:

  • Carry BEECH and WALNUT with you when you are expressing your problems that you are facing in your organization.
  • WALNUT for interviews
  • GORSE and CLEMATIS when you are visiting temples and you want to have a wonderful dharshan

In fact, whenever you are working on major issue in your life, you can follow this approach along with other methods.

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.

Thieves cannot escape

Naran

Ragu and Rama returned from Dubai.  Rama and Sita were childhood classmates and friends.  The couple met Sita in a restaurant.

During the conversation Rama mentioned that she wanted to sell jewelry worth around two lakhs.  Sita said that she would help her in the sale as she knows some jeweler.

Next day she met Rama, took the jewels and left him, promising to get a good bargain. For a week there was no news from her.

Rama got worried and kept calling her.  She always promised to meet them but never turned up.

After a fortnight they went to her place. The watchman told them that they are not there. He just enquired whether they had given any jewels to her.

He also tells them that they will not get back their jewels.  They become panicky and after my advice, they took the Bach Flower Remedies SWEET CHESTNUT and CHESTNUT BUD.

CHESTNUT BUD was sent through distance to Sita.

In their next visit, Sita’s husband threatens them that he will break their legs in case they come again.

They took WILLOW and ROCK WATER and went again.

This time Sita’s husband asked them to contact Sita’s grandmother.  If she tells Sita then she will definitely listen.  He also confesses that this how she brings problems to him.

The couple then contacted Sita’s grandmother.  She in turn scolded and told Sita to return the jewels.  Sita returned the jewels worth about 1.75 lakhs.  The remaining was sold.

The couple was relieved and happy because maximum amount was retrieved.

This is the power of Chestnut Bud.  Chestnut Bud will bring back the thief and the items.

Explanation

For desperate situations, SWEET CHESTNUT is required.

Rock Water and Chestnut Bud persons are always together.  When you find a thief (Chestnut Bud) to confront them as a cop you need to take ROCK WATER.

For resentment against that person: WILLOW

Anita

You asked me to chant “AGRIMONY HEATHER WATER VIOLET HOLLY HORNBEAM” when I was about to visit my mother’s place, expecting some issues with some of my family members.

Thanks for your advice my visit to my mother’s house was peaceful.

I did the chanting throughout my visit.

THANKS ONCE AGAIN it was only because of your timely advice I could come back without any drama and confrontation from my brother and his wife. I am really blessed to have come in contact with you.

Prayer to Forgive

KC

My elder sister bothers me a lot. She is a kind of person “my way or highway” and very difficult to deal with. For 4 years, she is sapping my energy.

Naran

Chant “WILLOW! Help me to forgive …. (name of your sister) and extend my love to her”.

Explanation

The Bach Flower Remedy Willow helps us to release our resentment.

So, we are doing a prayer to Willow to help us to forgive and love somebody.

A Prayer to Willow, from the ‘Meditation on Bach Flowers’ CD:

Hey the golden-yellow Willow, I just prostrate to you. When I have any difficulty or suffering, if I think, “Why should it happen to me” come to my help Willow.

Instill faith in me. If I say, my prayers are unanswered Willow teach me to have more faith in God!

Willow when I sulk with resentment or bitterness, help me regain my sense of humor and faith in God!

Nothing works out easy for me

ROSIE

Bad luck always follows me…

If I go to a Xerox center, at that right moment that machine will get damaged.

If I stand in a queue, my front person will get his work done and stops with me.

If I stand in a line to buy movie tickets, till my front person everyone gets chance except me.

Like these, things will happen smoothly to everyone surrounding me except me.

If I want something, I really had to work hard to get it.

Nothing happens for me smoothly.

I never get anything easily, even for small things too.

Pls tell me some sw to make things work out easily, and get success in whatever I do – even after working very hardly, I am not getting any results.

Be Clean! Be the Best!!

ANGEL VIKRANT

I want to become the world best dancer and singer and a knowledgeable person. How can I become.

I have also a problem. I want everything hygienic and clean. I can’t survive in dirty place

Naran

Take CRAB APPLE, Bach flower remedy regularly.

Explanation

Denying Pleasures

Don’t Take Words Literally

Mummy commented: “I thought Naran was a very humble man but looks like he is a hypocrite after all!! Typical Indian mentality”: http://wp.me/pwhm3-1q

Naran S Balakumar

Go beyond the meaning of the word

You don’t know what you know! Know what you don’t know!!

Every word in every language is sacred.

Go beyond any word “uttered”.

Every word will reveal its hidden message given by the divine at that time, if you mediate on that word.

Outwardly the word’s meaning is different. Inwardly, it has a different objective meaning.

Every word used in life has two purposes:

  1. Communication
  2. Inner Divine Message to the listener

After reading the comment by Mummy…

I was chanting “Hypocrite” for over 10 minutes.

I opened a dictionary for understanding the meaning beyond this word.

The meaning reminded me of Gita – He, who restrains his organs of action but continues to indulge in mind brooding over the objects of sense, is considered a man of false conduct(chapter 3 Sloka 6).

Another facet of Rock Water and Chestnut Bud

After reading this, I have found another facet of Bach flower remedy ROCK WATER and CHESTNUT BUD.

This reveals a new aspect of flower Rock Water.

It is immaterial whether one carries out his desires through (senses) action or not.

Rock water is needed for person who is brooding or indulging in thoughts of vice – sexual thoughts even though outwardly they are not doing the action.

Mental indulgence in sex happens mainly in two phases – old age and adolescence.

For restraining masturbation and looking at pornography pictures take the remedies ROCK WATER and CHESTNUT BUD.

Rock Water can be considered for people who deny themselves any pleasure in actions.

My salutations to Rock water and Chestnut bud!!!

Thank you Mummy for using the “word” Hypocrite on Indians.

Thank you Divine Mother for your grace.

The reason why Chestnut bud is also considered here will be discussed in next communication. 

How Bach Flower Remedies are prescribed?

Read the first part of the article here: http://wp.me/ptUDl-7E

A Brief on Bach Flower Remedies Part II

Flower remedies are selected based on our (negative) state of mind.

  • If there is fear there are four remedies – MIMULUS, ASPEN, RED CHESTNUT and ROCK ROSE. If a person has a fear then we need to give one of these remedies based on the type of fear.
  • If there is worry then give WHITE CHESTNUT, AGRIMONY, PINE, or HONEY SUCKLE, as per the expression.
  • Want to focus and concentration: CLEMATIS. If somebody says, “I want to be focused” then give them Clematis. If he wants concentration too then add CHESTNUT BUD to it.

How do we handle Anger?

  • BEECH is a person who criticise others. He will only find faults pointing out the mistakes of others.
  • WILLOW has resentment about life and others.
  • CHICORY is also an angry person. He thinks that nobody does anything to him, even though he did so many things for others. Thus, he is angry at the ingratitude of others.
  • HOLLY is an embodiment of rage and hatred.
  • VINE: if he gets angry he will work towards taking revenge. Holly and Vine are always together.
  • CHERRY PLUM: he will lose control of himself. When he gets angry he will throw things. It’s a misplaced anger at an acute state level. He might be angry at somebody. However, he will show the same at somebody else.

Other States of Mind

  • Self-pride and ego: WATER VIOLET. He has a superiority complex.
  • Desire to change and control other person is VERVAIN.

Beech and Vervain will come together. They are called as mixed personalities. We say child has to be like this and advise them, “don’t do this” and “don’t do that”. Beech will find fault, while Vervain desires to change others. Whenever you want to change the child, take Vervain then.

  • Sadness: GENTIAN is a pessimistic person. For example, before he goes out, he is worried what will happen. Say, what if gets stuck in a traffic jam. He will always have negative approach to life. Any small setback will upset him greatly. He tends to have a negative outlook about life.
  • Hopelessness: GORSE: I tried a lot of things. I don’t know whether it will work. Nothing seems to work for him. He loses his hope and therefore, does not have any trust either.
  • When anyone says, “I can’t”, Larch will make him say “I can“. To have confidence in oneself Larch is the remedy. It is almost a specific remedy in any competition.

Gentian is skeptical, while Gorse would try many and finally loses hope.

You are trying to go somewhere, either by train, bus or plane. At that time you think it is not possible to get a ticket. If you take Gorse, it (hopelessness state) can be changed to joyful state. You will get a ticket.

“I want miracle to happen in my life”, when anyone says this, give them Gorse, because they are in the negative state of Gorse.

  • SWEET CHESTNUT: doctors give only 24 hours lifeline for your dear one. Therefore, you feel a tremendous need to pray for divine intervention.

In fact, as long as we are seeing doctors, we won’t go near divinity. Only when the doctor says the situation is hopeless, then we focus on God. We may start chanting Vishnu Sahsaranamam. You may have desire to be spiritual. However, we don’t remember god until the critical time.

  • WILD ROSE: he has no interest in life. Apathy sets in. He becomes indifferent, resigning to the life situations. It’s neither sadness nor happiness. That’s apathy, as he is not bothered about what happens around him.
  • STAR OF BETHLEHEM: for accidents, shock, trauma. It is a great soother of physical and emotional pains. It is a must in all those situations.
  • MUSTARD: I need to see light in my life as my whole life is in darkness. I don’t know where to go.

The patients have to say the above words and based on that you can give the remedies. All the words mentioned for the remedies should come from the horse’s mouth. Their own expressions are important.
