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.

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!!!”

Lawyers couldn’t be liars

Raju (name changed), a leading lawyer from Chennai is a man based on principles. He will never take any case unless he knows the client is on the right side of the law. However, we know in general, the advocates usually tell lies. It is their job to save their clients.

In one court case, the defense lawyer was telling lies, non-stop. Raju could not handle him.  Therefore, he consulted Naran S. Balakumar. Based on Balakumar’s instructions, Raju visualized the court and affirmed, “Chestnut bud be in the court hall and sustain there for next 8 hrs”.

Interestingly during the court proceedings, the judge told the defense lawyer, “Yesterday you were lying throughout the day. If you lie one more time, I will give the judgment against your client”.  The defense lawyer kept mum, as he could not afford to tell the truth.

Every remedy work in a particular way and it will take a particular Vishwaroopam – an avatar of its own.

This is an extract from Balakumar’s workshop on Bach Flower Remedies conducted on March 30th and 31st, 2009.
