Complementing and Opposing Companions of Life!!!

R Mohan

Am I talking about our beloved life travellers in people’s lives – spouse or family members, who take different avatars in different times of our life? No, I am talking about the Bach Flower Remedies here.

Opposite Poles attract each other

Let me share my experiences here. I am a typical, typical Impatiens (Bach Flower Remedy) type. For that matter, all the male members of my family are impatient. So we end up meeting Scleranthus-type personalities. I thought so and believed so.

In this regard, it is not uncommon for me to address my close friends and my too good colleagues as Scleranthus. Surprisingly, one day Naran prescribed me Scleranthus.  In addition, he told me that I need to take it for at least 6 months.

After one year, I was shocked to realize that I need to continue to take it for six more months, as Scleranthus-types change slowly (no doubt as Scleranthus is prescribed for procrastinating types).

Thus, when an Impatiens attracts Scleranthus, a Centaury attracts Vine or Chicory, or a Pine attracts Water Violet or Beech, if one remedy is given, the opposite type remedies also has to be given for chronic cases.

Like Father Like Son

I thought I am a rebellion. In the end, I end-up becoming like my father in certain cases. For example, I am happier in doing things myself. Two years back Naran asked me to take Beech as well as Water Violet. The reason being, Water Violet type personalities sometimes become mixed with Beech qualities, finding lack of perfection in work of others.

Now (after two years, I understand lately – a Scleranthus Brain hmm :)), I understand that in all my work-related stuff I behave either as a Beech (criticizing others’ ways) or as a Water Violet (working as a solitary with a big superiority complex and this I humbly accept this criticism about myself).

Similarly, Holly and Vine complement each other. Likewise, there are other remedies complementing some other remedies.

One inside another

Yet another combination I had taken on a regular basis is – Gentian and Hornbeam. My best recommendation so far to my friends are Walnut (resist to change) Gentian and Hornbeam. Any activity will go on without fail and interruptions. You may add Pine to that combination, if you have a low self-esteem.

Naran was explaining to me about this combination a week back. A Hornbeam person, if he starts, he will complete. However, a Gentian person will get stuck up immediately.

I asked him, why then he had prescribed me both? After all, they are attacking different issues that are contradictory to each other, isn’t it? He replied, a person who has a starting trouble, will also have stuck-up issues in the middle. One is inside other, completing each other.

I am confused, I remarked. He replied that I need not worry as he is planning to take a class on multi-dimensional aspects of Bach Flower Remedies sometime during the month of November. It would clarify all my doubts.

So folks, let us catch during the month of November. Hopefully, and as always, it will clarify not only the different aspects of Bach Flower Remedies, but will also clarify some of our life issues as well.

Have a Great Deepavali

Good Luck

Bach Flower Remedy Combinations Monthly Meeting Aug 2010

Useful Combinations

I am not an optimist: take Bach Flower Remedies Gentian, Larch and Pine

For meditation: Clematis and (gem remedy) Amethyst

To Spend money within the budget – Mimulus.

Getting your money back

Take Chicory, Rock water, Chestnut bud, Vine and Sweet Chestnut – for getting the money back.

Traits of arrogance and stubbornness (in not paying the money) can be seen in Rock Water and Vine.

Chicory for one being possessive about money. Those who are in negative traits of chicory will not easily pay back what they received as loan.

Chestnut bud for escaping tendencies.

These remedies will help you to collect the money.

Write your name as well as that of the opposite person, and the names of the flowers. Everyday see the paper.

Self motivation

Hornbeam, Wild rose, Gentian and (another type of flower remedy) Hibiscus: to have enthusiasm in our work  and be optimistic as well.

Attract loving people

To attract only loving people: Holly, (gem remedy) Kunzite.

Kunzite will open up the Heart chakra. Keyword for Kunzite is compassion. It’s a very costly stone somewhere between 5 to 10 thousand rupees. In addition, it is very difficult to get the right stone and it is rarely available in USA. But this is available as pills in the Bach Flower Study Centre, Chennai.

Negotiation Pack

Keep Beech, Walnut and Chestnut bud in the room, where negotiation takes place. If you expect a conflict during the negotiation, add Agrimony to the combination.

Land Dispute

You want to leave the land without any dispute or encroachment – Agrimony

Somebody is possessive of your land and not giving it up – Chicory and Vine

We curse them because he is not leaving – Willow

They have stubbornness – Rock water

He will say that he will go, but won’t go – Chestnut bud

Demanding a lot of money to vacate the land: Chicory

For any issues with land, chant the mantra “Namashivayam”. Somebody has usurped the house, chant Namashivayam. Whenever you think about them chant this mantra.

Recruit a staff member

You want to select a person. There are many who are competent enough to fill up the post. Your mental state could be one of these:

We are desperately trying to get good staff – Sweet chestnut

I only want the people I want – atypical expression of those who need Water violet. The plant of the flower Water violet is inside the water. In the same way,the Water Violet person is within his shell. To come out of the shell, one needs Water violet. You will attract the person/place of your choice.

Our search is not producing the result we want – Oak (by taking it we would try differently)

Cerato to end the search.

Attending a VIP’s Wedding

A Water Violet person is an unfriendly person. Nobody approaches him as he thinks he is superior to others, while others are inferior to him.

Let us say, we go to a wedding reception. We only know the bride and the groom. We don’t know anybody other than them. How we are going to have company in the wedding hall? Bach Flower Remedy Water Violet will find friends for you.

Case History

A wife of an ex-minister attends a celebrity wedding. The street was full of cars. She left her car way back from the wedding hall and started walking towards it.

Water Violet and Larch goes hand in hand. When we meet people in superior status (Water Violet), then we will have low confidence (Larch). The lady chanted both Water Violet and Larch. She was approached by a popular actor. He took her in his car to the hall and accompanied her back to her car.

A Water Violet Person is…

Water Violet person will be working in an unfriendly and lonely atmosphere. As a boss, he will deliberately ignore others. Will do the work himself, as he thinks others can’t do the work as per his standards. So he won’t delegate work, though a leader should be able to delegate.

A Water Violet husband and wife won’t get a divorce but will live separately in the same house. Water Violet will bring them together.

A Water Violet person doesn’t understand the value of other people in his life.

Seeking HELP!

You are in an unknown place and stranded. Don’t know whom to approach. Rock Water and Water Violet is the combination required.

Or call the animal spirit guide Wolf and tell the animal spirit beforehand, ‘I will be there in such and such time. Please be there and take care of me’. It will take care of you!
