Reflect the energy of love and sympathy

Sheela

How to figure out whether a person requires the flower remedy Mimulus? You mentioned that for all specific fears, one has to take Mimulus. Please gives us some examples?

Naran

A specific fear means that a person is afraid of something, somebody, or some situation.

I will give you some typical Doctor Vs Patient related examples here:

  • Doctor, I can bear the pain, but not the prick of a needle. Please don’t administer injection for me.”
  • A patient requests the doctor not do surgery and instead give him medicines. After the doctor has examined him he may say, “Doctor, I hope there is nothing to worry.”
  • A person may have a small boil in his hand. When he shows that to the doctor, he would ask him “I hope this may not be cancerous!”

Mimulus helps people with specific fears like fear of a person, fear of crossing the road, fear of riding, fear of doctors, fear of crowds, and fear of animals – about dog, cockroach, lizard etc. Typical fears would be:

  • I am afraid to go to a dentist.
  • I avoid all types of diagnostic investigations.
  • If I don’t recover, then there is every chance that I will lose my job.
  • If I get news about someone’s death, I start feeling that my death is also near, and I fear that I may die soon.
  • I don’t go by lift. Even if it is a six storey building I will climb. I am so afraid that the lift might get stuck due to power cut and I may be stranded forever inside the lift.

When I talk about Mimulus it reminds me a poem of Rabindranath Tagore: Even well before you take birth in this world, the God has provided Milk in the breasts of the Mother. Why fear?

When you have Mimulus in the pocket or when you chant Mimulus, your auric will be filled, and you will project as well as reflect the energy of love, compassion and sympathy.

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.

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.

A Brief on Bach Flower Remedies Part I

Introduction to Bach Flower Remedies

There are 39 Bach Flower Remedies.

They can play a very important role in a person’s life.

First of all we need to understand that:

  • We are not the mind
  • We are not our thoughts
  • We are not our emotions
  • We are above that.
  • That means I can watch my reaction and able to say, ‘I feel angry’, ‘I am worrying now’ and so on. This technique of self observation has to come to you.

Why I need to observe myself?

The moment you start watching the mind, the mind will stop its normal course of reacting automatically.

How our mind exists? It exists due to our thoughts and emotions.

When you start observing your thoughts and emotions, your mind will stop thinking. Therefore, it will not exist to influence us.

How do I practice this self-observation?

What are the steps to analyze our mind?

  • Whenever something happens, talk to yourself, “This is what is happening to me. This is my thought. And these are my emotions”.
  • In addition, ask a question, “Can I change my reaction”. This simple question will change your reaction.
  • Our reactions are automatic. When we change it, the result has to be different. How?

When your reaction is ‘A’ result ‘B’ happens. When you change your reaction to ‘C’, result ‘B’ cannot happen. It has to change.

Are there any tools available to change our reactions

Why should I change my actions in a different way? Is there is any help available to me for me to change effortlessly?

Yes, it is available in the form of Bach Flower Remedies. Just by taking the Bach Flower Remedies in the form of pills you can achieve the following:

  • Reduce your anger, violence and worries.
  • Establish harmony and make your life peaceful.
  • By all means, achieve anything and resolve any type of problem.

A Chance to Receive the BLESSING of My LIFE

Thomas

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

My married life is like living in a hostel

My married life is like a hostel life. We two are living like roommates only. He is taking food, and bathing at his mother’s home, coming only in the late evening after finishing all his routines. He is not willing to go out with me.

We two are working and have problems in money matters.

In-laws also wanted to keep him with them at all times. He is the third son. All others in family are well attached to their families blessed with all boons and children. But I am living like sanyasi and no children after seven years of marriage. Not all are co-operating even for small things also. Undergoing treatment and that too not successful till date.

Born in a poor temple’s priest family and after many struggles and hard work, completed my graduation and currently earning a small income monthly. But in-laws need my money fully and problem created there and we came separately. After that also they are begging for money from my husband.

He believes them and not trusting me. I am doing and thinking everything for our welfare only. But he does not understand me. Not going out with me, but willing to go with others.

I am working from my young age. So I don’t want to quit the job and be idle. But in a joint-family I have to give all money to them.

We are separate now but my life is like a sanyasi life.

All my relations are coming with their partners. But I am going alone to all functions. He is not at all willing to come out with me.

Gone through your site and all mantras are well, good and useful.

I am a devotee of Shridi Sai Baba and I trust the reply given by you is the remedy given by Guru Shridi Sai. Jai Sairam. Sainath Maharaj Ki Jai.

Naran

Throughout our life, we hunt for love, needing caring and affection from others. When we don’t get it, we fail to understand that we are demanding more and more from a person who does not have what we want. Instead, we hang on to him.

Our demand annoys him and he distances himself away. The paradox is he married you with the intention that you would give him love. There is an unconscious decision is your life before birth that you will always give love to your husband without any expectation. Now instead of giving, you want to receive. That is why you are not getting.

Instead of trying to get, become a giver. That is why you are named Someshwari.

Give love even when there is no receiving.

Giving love without expecting to receive will make you magnanimous.

Thank every person and every event in your life daily.

Meditate on Sai Baba, reminding yourself of his anecdotes of Divine love and visualize his love filling up your heart. Then from your heart let his love flow through your hands to your husband and his family.

Do this daily. Thank them. Pray for them.

Chant the following: “CHICORY, CHERRY PLUM, TOGETHER FIND DIVINE LOVE WITH”.

Chant this as many times as possible.

Faith and Endurance will carry us forward.

Write this in a paper and keep it under the pillow.

I see positive changes in my financials

Loona

I need help which switch word for my financials. I need a huge, huge sum of money by the end of this month. But I don´t have them. I am desperate. Can you please help me? I need the advice how often and how I should chant? I am so desperate and I don’t have anyone else to ask for the help.

Naran

Chant MUSTARD FIND COUNT DIVINE NOW ON. Chant this as many times as possible.

Loona

I have read that you sometimes suggest SWEET CHESTNUT and IMPATIENS, but in my case you suggest MUSTARD. Is there a difference in these words?

Naran

Yes there is a difference as healing varies from one person to another.

Loona

Thanks for your answer. I have chanted MUSTARD FIND COUNT DIVINE NOW ON since you gave me the words yesterday and somehow I feel something inside me. Can’t explain what it is, but it seems to like the words are talking to me… Strange?

Loona (after two weeks)

I have now chanted the suggested words you gave me and already I have seen some positive changes in my financials. I am so grateful and just would like to thank you. I will continue chanting the words; there are still some changes I need. But the switch words are magic, I feel it inside me.

Thank you!

Explanation

Mustard is a Bach Flower, the key word of which is “Huge Huge Money”. Mustard only can generate so much of money.

Find Count Divine is the standard switch word combination for finding money.

When you want it? Now

And you want it non-stop without fail: On

Let Others Not Cheat You

The Mother’s Red Balsam Flower

Managing mean-minded people, who wants to cheat you

If any person is mean-minded and not giving your money… One might have taken your money and he is dodging to give it. He might be avoiding you or evading you. Paste the picture on him (write his name on a paper and paste), and meditate on the flower.  Between brothers and sisters there is always a dispute whether to give the equal share to all-concerned. Then you could use this flower.

Getting donations

For voluntary agencies, to collect donations from people, they can have this picture or they could put the picture of Balsam in their letter-head. If you suggest to them, they might ask you to do it for them. For that we need to be generous.

If you visualize Balsam flower in your heart centre (chakra), you will attract people who are generous and who are not bargaining.

Making people fair to you

If anybody is unfair, aggressive, ill-tempered or spiteful, paste this picture on the name of the person (write the name in a piece of paper and paste the picture over it). Or visualize the flower in their heart centre. Thus, you can project the flowers on others the moment you think about them as they represent divine in this world.

Only Red Balsam has got the above-mentioned properties.

Sharing the property of the deceased brother, a case history

Recently a person died. That person has a brother and a sister. Within 10 days, a conflict arose between the living siblings of the deceased, over taking the property.

The sister came to me. At that time I didn’t have the color picture. Therefore, I printed the picture of the Balsam flower in black and white color and gave it to her. From the next day onwards, the quarrel about the property between them has stopped. It was resolved amicably.

Getting the generosity of others

I told her to always keep the picture with her. If you keep this flower in your heart centre, what is the message given to the other person? I am ready to give whatever you want.

Whenever you are ready to give what the other person has demanded you, then immediately the opposite person will stop his unfair demands.

Like Mother Like Daughter

Interestingly, our kith and kin would reflect our feelings. Here, the daughter and mother are in similar life situations. To put it simple, we will be sailing in the same boat as those who are close to us.

Mrs ID

I am from Mumbai and I recently found your site. It is really amazing to know about it.

Now I wish to ask your support and I am sure you will help me:

  1. I have applied for my passport and its 6 months over, still not got it.
  2. I want my daughter get a confirmation letter from her company where she is working since June 2011.

Naran

For both situations, Chant “WATER VIOLET ROCK WATER GENTIAN WILDROSE”.

Explanation

Water Violet Rock Water Gentian Wild Rose: This is a good Bach Flower Remedy combination to deal with all situations dealing with government offices.  So before applying and while waiting for getting things done, chant this combination. You will get better treatment from the officers.

Water Violet: The opposition person is in a superior state – our mind feels so, as we are dependent on their decisions

Rock Water: For the officer not to go strictly by book rules

Gentian: If anything is denied, we tend to feel depressed. Chanting Gentian may help you not attain the depressive state.  

Wild Rose: one will just accept the result.

How to Use Bach Flower Remedies

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!!!
