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. 

Over-eating

M

I know eating every 2-3 hour is good. But I don’t eat fruits or other healthy food. If there are biscuits, sweets and rice, I will eat that.

Even at night I eat something around 2-3 a.m. too. How to stop this habit and start eating healthy meal? I am not attracted towards junk food even if it is in fridge.

I’m overweight too and trying to reduce weight.  I lost it but I gained again.

Naran

Take the flower remedies WHITE CHESTNUT, WALNUT and CHERRY PLUM to stop this.

M

Still I’m eating whatever in my fridge and kitchen – sweets etc.

I don’t know whether it’s real hunger or what. Or I feel bored, so I eat.

Pls help to stop this and so that I eat healthy food, and can do some exercise.

Naran

Take the flower remedies WALNUT and CHERRY PLUM daily two pills each four times a day for a month.

Explanation

To Control over-eating and impulsiveness: CHERRY PLUM

Not to feel bored and eat and to break the habit: WALNUT

To come out of continuous eating: WHITE CHESTNUT

Flower Remedies Drops vs. Pills

Krikar

I have a doubt. I want to take Mimulus + Aspen + Larch. Can I mix all medicine drops with water? Or I give some gap between these medicines?

Someone told me that a sugar pill is better than drops.  How many drops are good to take at a time?  How many times a day?

Naran

Both drops and pills have same effect.

MIMULUS and LARCH can be combined.

Why do you want to combine MIMULUS and ASPEN?

Mimulus is for specific fear and Aspen for unknown imaginary fears. Both will not exist simultaneously. For Mimulus, fear exists, while for Aspen, fear will not be present. Therefore, when there is Aspen fear, Mimulus fear will not be there. Mimulus is for specific situations – e.g., fear of diagnostic investigations, fear of something or someone.

If you want to take both the remedies, separate them. Take one in the morning and the other one in the evening. In general, when you are taking multiple remedies, give a gap of one to two minutes between them.

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.

Naran

Take the Bach flower remedy GENTIAN two pills three times a day for one month.

How to Use Bach Flower Remedies

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

A Brief on Bach Flower Remedies Part III

The moment you think about the flower, it is already here. In fact, because it is there, you do think about it.

  • You can buy the pills either from the centre or from a homeopathy shop.
  • You can take 3 to 4 pills for once or 100 times. It doesn’t matter. If one drop of a remedy doesn’t work, 100 drops of the remedy too will not work. Extras will not make a difference.

Intention is important as well as trust. Taking the remedies is important. However, how much is not important. Trust in nothing but god.

  • Just thinking about them will work.
  • If we write the names of flowers in a piece of paper, they work.
  • If you can’t get the pills, write the names in a notebook.
  • Keep it (notebook or paper) with you and look at it every day.
  • Chant the names of the remedies daily, as they are expressions of divinity.
  • Hold the glass of water, repeat the name of the remedy and drink it.

Remedy means HELP! By chanting their names, they come to our AID.

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

Doing well in Exams

Nivedita

My son is in class five…a very intelligent boy but unable to score high marks in exams…what should I do?

Naran

Intelligent boy not scoring marks –

Is there any fear of exam? (MIMULUS)

Does he forget during exam but remember after the exam? (SCLERANTHUS)

Or is he going blank and forgetting the answer? (WHITE CHESTNUT)

Or does he not have enough time? (ELM)

Or feeling shaky while reading the question paper? (RESCUE REMEDY)

Or making silly mistakes and getting fewer marks. (IMPATIENS)

Is he sitting to study putting the required efforts? (OAK)

Or not sitting to study in the house? (CHESTNUT BUD)

Nivedita

I think he has got fear of exams, because he does errors in the paper, same questions he answers correctly at home….similarly in maths too…all the sums are right at home.

But in school he makes silly mistakes and thus scores less. He does study what is required for his age or class, no problem in that.

Naran

These questions were given to you with the intention that you will get the answers from him.

Ask him, get the answers from him and then ascertain whether he has got fear or forgetfulness.

Nivedita

As guided by you, I spoke to him.

He says he panics whenever he gets the test paper, fears that he will be unable to complete it. So, it is fear actually.

Naran

Then give him flower remedies RESCUE REMEDY and LARCH (confidently to handle the paper) on the dates of all examinations.

Put 6 to 7 pills of above flower remedies in water and make sip every half hour. He can take the bottle to the exam also. Water can be 300 to 500 ml.

Job Mantras

I have never been in the same job for more than 10 months. Either, I change project within the same company, so going to a different location or completely shifting to another company. Due to this, I always feel unsettled and unstable.

Naran

Take the following remedies:

  • SCLERANTHUS: The unsteady mind will always have an unsettled life. One day you have the desire to go for the job. The very next day you have resistance to go to the job (changeable mood or mood swings). Scleranthus will give you a steady and stable mind, and helps you settle down.
  • HORNBEAM: Of course steadiness in the job for 10-15 years doesn’t indicate growth. You need to move forward in life.
  • ROCK ROSE: To have determination and commitment and a “never-say-die spirit”
  • WALNUT: You would have taken this pattern from one of your parents or ancestors. To break the pattern, Walnut is needed.
  • The fifth could be any one of the following three, based on your mental states:
    • Gentian: To be upbeat and optimistic in all circumstances
    • Willow: if you have resentment and feel that your counter-parts or juniors are doing better, even though you are better qualified.
    • Larch: if you think others are smart and more capable than in utilizing their opportunities, while you are not (lack of confidence)

All remedies have to be taken separately; two pills each, with a gap of five minutes, and twice a day.

Chant the switch words:

MOVE ON FIND COUNT DIVINE JOB

Move on: now you are not in a job, so you need to move on,

Find Count Divine: to get a good salary

Job: Goal.

Power to Achieve

Hibiscus

“The power needed in yoga is the power to go through effort, difficulty or trouble without getting fatigued, depressed, discouraged or impatient and without breaking off the effort or giving up one’s aim or resolution.”

– The Mother

When can you use this flower?

  • For any obstacle or hindrance
  • If there is a delay, obstruction, opposition or restriction, for example, if there is a delay in getting the offer.  What can you do then? You can take the picture and meditate upon it. 
  • Just look at it for a while, if the project or something else is delayed. Let us say, marriage is delayed.
  • If there is a stumbling block in your way, say a person is hindering, sabotaging or preventing you from doing anything…
  • You are stopped from getting a promotion…“Let this girl need not get a job, a colleague might work towards it”

These can be categorized as obstruction, prevention and sabotage. In all these areas of problems, the Hibiscus flower can be used as a beautiful remedy.

The Hibiscus with this color only (Hawaii Hibiscus flower) has got that healing power. In fact, Mother has discussed about 15 varieties of Hibiscus flowers. Only the Hawaii Hibiscus flower has the qualities I have mentioned.

Have a look at the picture of the Hibiscus flower. You are blessed if you just get an opportunity to see it. Both the picture and pills of the flowers are available in the centre. The original flower is from Hawaii. Outside of the flower will be in yellowish orange, while its inside is red in color.
