Flowers are always special to me

From the Bach Flower Workshop, Bangalore 2013

Naran

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.

39 remedies

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.

No solution in sight

Sai R

Our land supplementary agreement is in registrar’s office who is objecting to certain parts of the matter which will give strong legal right to us. It looks like the land problem is going towards a case.

The builder is colluding with the registrar. They don’t want it to be registered, because the builder does not want to implement it, because of the various deviations he did to the space.

The other flat owners are pressurizing us to sell for a lower price, warding away new buyers. They are extracting money towards maintenance for empty flats, and not accounting for bills.

The municipal authorities do not want to change the name from the builder’s name to my father’s name, because they want dues which need to be settled by the builder. They are refusing to assess taxes for the new flats.

There is pressure from all sides, and no solution in sight. My father is getting stressful by the minute, unable to think of a solution as to how to solve these problems. I am his son, and unable to help because we are far away from them.

Chant “MUSTARD, OAK, HORNBEAM, DIVINE WIND TRANSFORM VICTORY”

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.

To know more about such interesting facts about Bach Flower Remedies, please attend the workshop by Naran S Balakumar, at Bangalore, on 14th and 15thDec, 2013. 

A Sound Financial Plan

Creation of Wealth

When you find yourself with insufficient money, try to find new sources, ways – sources by which you can earn more:

  • ELM and OAK – for inadequacy of mind to think ways of improving finance; to think differently
  • GORSE – if you have no hopes or if you think to all sources are exhausted, feeling hopeless of getting any additional money
  • LARCH – to be more confident of creating wealth

If you are in business:

  • Think how to add more value to the products or add other products of more value.

If you are in job, ask simply:

  • “How can I add more value to my work”,
  • “What I had to do so that I am wanted more”,
  • “How will I make my job more valuable” and
  • “How will I contribute 100%”.

When you say or think that I am already working more than 16 hours – take OAK + OLIVE + HORNBEAM to work smartly and finish in less time.

If you are in business, or a salesman, ask yourself:

“How can I reach more in less time” or

“How can I reach more customers” then

Take VERVAIN + OAK + OLIVE.

Have a plan to spend and invest

Suddenly an advertisement comes and we spend carried away by it and regret later.

Not to do any impulsive purchase – CHERRY PLUM + HONEY SUCKLE

Or stop spending all when there is money – WILD ROSE

Enjoy your wealth

  1. Thank divine, your work, office everyday for your earning.
  2. Thank your expenses
  3. Stop your feeling of jealousy about the rich and come out of it by saying “ I AM SORRY, PLEASE FORGIVE ME, LOVE THANK DIVINE”
  4. Find out your beliefs about money and release them
  5. Chant the Switch Words – “TOGETHER FIND COUNT DIVINE NOW”
  6. Do the Mudras – ACCEPTANCE MUDRA and VITALITY MUDRA, each for 15 minutes.
  7. Daily morning – rotate all the 7 chakras clock-wise by intending “Keep rotating clockwise at optimum speed.”

When you have too much worry and confusion about finance, take WHITE CHESTNUT + SCLERANTHUS + RESCUE REMEDY in the night.

Try the following on each day and find which combination gives you the money you want or require:

MORNING    – one combination each day and repeat

MIMULUS, PINK TOURMALINE (1st day)

MIMULUS, RUBY (2nd day)

MIMULUS, CAT’S EYE (3rd day)

MUSTARD, DIAMOND (4th day)

Daily afternoon to evening

GENTIAN, LARCH

Daily night

SWEET CHESTNUT, SCLERANTHUS

Pink Tourmaline, Ruby, Cat’s Eye, and Diamond are Gem Remedies and available only at the centre. The rest of the remedies mentioned are Bach Flower Remedies, which are available in the Homeopathy Shops also.

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. 

Winning Ways

My past failures are holding on to me

I am trying to find a new job and I am meeting some obstacles within myself. Here are the themes:

  • Not feeling I have the skill set to apply to the positions I know in my heart that I desire for.
  • Not feeling smart enough even though I am graduated from a top school.
  • I remember past failures, even though I have an outstanding memory.
  • Feeling like that I cannot get good references.
  • Not feeling valuable or that I can make as much money as I know I deserve for my work.
  • Feeling judged for even wanting to rise to a higher position (glass ceiling).
  • I regret my past failures in school despite outstanding reviews for the past 4 years. It is quite irrational but is having a real affect on my ability.
  • Is there a mantra that can work for me? I am committed to getting out of this rut from the inside out.
  • Additionally, I am always somehow short on funds even though I know with some certainty that I can maintain a balanced checkbook. Little things always happen to take it away.

Chant “ELM, LARCH, HONEYSUCKLE, GENTIAN, HORNBEAM”

No promotion in sight for me

I am working in an IT company for past 5 plus years and working very hard but I am not being recognized nor being promoted to the next level. I have my appraisal next month and I need promotion and a very good salary hike, as I do not want to leave my company.

Please help me. Because of this I am very de-motivated after working so hard and doing well and yet there is no career progression

Naran

Chant “ELM LARCH ROCK ROSE”.
(Within yourself) thank all your colleagues, superiors, the management, and the salary you are getting (currently). Live in the attitude of gratitude.

Explanation

Elm: will expand your capabilities that are required for your growth and promotions in your endeavors.

Larch: Boosts your self-confidence (for success)

Honeysuckle:  Not to regret in the past, and not to be held by the past. Instead, move forward in life.

Gentian: Not to be down due to setbacks. Instead use them as feedback and lessons to be learned.

Hornbeam: Not to get stuck up and move forward

Rock rose: not to panic about the appraisal

Got my US Visa approved after lots of issues

Dear Naran,

Below is the case history you had wanted me to send you, Sorry about the delay… I want to mail you after I got my passport, which I got only on Monday.

Archana

I came to the US about 3 years back on Student Visa (F1) and after finishing my studies I applied for a Professional Working visa (H1B) this year. After my 2 year studies I had an OPT period of one year, where I will be allowed to work legally in the area of my study.

During my OPT period I had a personal emergency and had to travel to India. I was not aware that during this period if I leave the country, I will not be given the “Change of Status” automatically (from F1 to H1B). Without obtaining the new status, I won’t be eligible to work.

In addition, to get the H1B status I will have to go to my home country immediately after my OPT expiry, get the H1B stamping and then come back into US.

To make matters worse, my employer had forgotten that I had travelled too.

About 3 weeks back my employer received the H1 documents and this issue came to light. I was asked to go to India immediately for my H1 stamping. The situation now is such that if anyone goes to India for their stamping they are held back there for about a minimum of 2-3 months, as they have very strict rules in place now. Some of my friends who left this year beginning have still not  returned back.

The only option for me was to try and go to a neighbouring country. But, the catch was since this is my first H1 stamping I will have to go to my home country.

The second concern is that there is no guarantee that the consulate I go to for my interview will have my information available in their system. In that case, if I turn up for my interview and my details don’t exist in their database I will have to stay in that country till my information reflects in their system (for about 10-15 days).

Or the worse situation will be I will be asked to go to my home country for my stamping. I didn’t have a choice but to risk it all and give it a try.

I immediately got in touch with Naran S Balakumar and he asked me to chant “GORSE WILD ROSE SCLERANTHUS MIMULUS”.

Last week, I left the US for my visa stamping. The day I was leaving the US I got in touch with Naran again. I told him about the uncertainty I was facing. He asked me to chant “WATER VIOLET ROCK WATER LARCH GENTIAN WILD ROSE”. In addition, I have to call upon the animal spirit “WOLF”, request Wolf to interview me and ensure my details be available in the consulate’s system.

Fortunately, I had one of the best experiences ever, as my friend’s father is a Diplomat in the Indian Embassy. Due to which, I got a “Red Carpet” greeting during my visit. I stayed at my friend’s parent’s house for about a week. On the day of my interview to my astonishment I was asked only 2 questions – one about my employment and the other about why I had come there for stamping rather than going to my home country. That’s it! No more questions! My Visa was approved!!!

What made the whole experience pleasant and memorable is that I was in a foreign land where I had a place to stay. I was taken care of very well. And everything was taken care off for me!!!

I am very grateful to Naran S Balakumar for all his help during this difficult time.

Thanks,

Explanation

GORSE: when you feel hopeless about a situation

WILDROSE: not to become apathetic if visa application is rejected

SCLERANTHUS: for the confusion, whether to go back to India or not

MIMULUS: fear of getting Visa application rejected

WATER VIOLET, ROCK WATER, LARCH, GENTIAN and WILDROSE: a good combination to get your visa or get our done in the Indian government offices.

WOLF: the animal spirit can be called upon for any kind of help
