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

Desperate Situations Needs a Divine Intervention
Being child-less, in spite of various attempts is the greatest anguish, similar to the drought – a totally dry and listless life.
The Rain Mantra – “SWEET CHESTNUT CHESTNUT BUD WILD ROSE ROCK ROSE”- which brings rain, putting an end to the dryness, can put an end to the dry listless life too. Chanting of this mantra will bring transformation and liveliness as rain brings cheers to the people in drought.
Parents losing their child when he was young
They will come to the stage of being totally desolated–“Nirgathi”. At this stage nothing will make sense to them, hopelessly lost in their own worries and despair and finding no motivation to do anything about life.
How does Rain mantra help in this situation?
SWEET CHESTNUT: When you are in extreme anguish, Sweet chestnut is the remedy
WILD ROSE: makes them come out of their lack of motivation to lead a happy life
CHESTNUT BUD: to learn and understand that life has more to offer
ROCK ROSE: somebody would lead them out of their miseries
As those people who suffered loss of either their spouse or child suddenly and unexpectedly mayn’t do anything about their situation, we have to do it for them. Write in a piece of paper using circle technique, the names of the remedies. Chant for them too.
No job in sight for so long
SWEET CHESTNUT: desperate situation needing a divine intervention
CHESTNUT BUD: they would have committed one mistake or other in the previous job(s) or interviews. The Chestnut bud flower will make them learn, so that they will not repeat the same mistake again.
WILD ROSE: A state of apathy and lack of interest in life
ROCK ROSE: determination, fortitude and readiness to face anything in life, will help one succeed in life

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

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:
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.
