A Brief on Bach Flower Remedies Part II

Flower remedies are selected based on our (negative) state of mind.

  • If there is fear there are four remedies – MIMULUS, ASPEN, RED CHESTNUT and ROCK ROSE. If a person has a fear then we need to give one of these remedies based on the type of fear.
  • If there is worry then give WHITE CHESTNUT, AGRIMONY, PINE, or HONEY SUCKLE, as per the expression.
  • Want to focus and concentration: CLEMATIS. If somebody says, “I want to be focused” then give them Clematis. If he wants concentration too then add CHESTNUT BUD to it.

How do we handle Anger?

  • BEECH is a person who criticise others. He will only find faults pointing out the mistakes of others.
  • WILLOW has resentment about life and others.
  • CHICORY is also an angry person. He thinks that nobody does anything to him, even though he did so many things for others. Thus, he is angry at the ingratitude of others.
  • HOLLY is an embodiment of rage and hatred.
  • VINE: if he gets angry he will work towards taking revenge. Holly and Vine are always together.
  • CHERRY PLUM: he will lose control of himself. When he gets angry he will throw things. It’s a misplaced anger at an acute state level. He might be angry at somebody. However, he will show the same at somebody else.

Other States of Mind

  • Self-pride and ego: WATER VIOLET. He has a superiority complex.
  • Desire to change and control other person is VERVAIN.

Beech and Vervain will come together. They are called as mixed personalities. We say child has to be like this and advise them, “don’t do this” and “don’t do that”. Beech will find fault, while Vervain desires to change others. Whenever you want to change the child, take Vervain then.

  • Sadness: GENTIAN is a pessimistic person. For example, before he goes out, he is worried what will happen. Say, what if gets stuck in a traffic jam. He will always have negative approach to life. Any small setback will upset him greatly. He tends to have a negative outlook about life.
  • Hopelessness: GORSE: I tried a lot of things. I don’t know whether it will work. Nothing seems to work for him. He loses his hope and therefore, does not have any trust either.
  • When anyone says, “I can’t”, Larch will make him say “I can“. To have confidence in oneself Larch is the remedy. It is almost a specific remedy in any competition.

Gentian is skeptical, while Gorse would try many and finally loses hope.

You are trying to go somewhere, either by train, bus or plane. At that time you think it is not possible to get a ticket. If you take Gorse, it (hopelessness state) can be changed to joyful state. You will get a ticket.

“I want miracle to happen in my life”, when anyone says this, give them Gorse, because they are in the negative state of Gorse.

  • SWEET CHESTNUT: doctors give only 24 hours lifeline for your dear one. Therefore, you feel a tremendous need to pray for divine intervention.

In fact, as long as we are seeing doctors, we won’t go near divinity. Only when the doctor says the situation is hopeless, then we focus on God. We may start chanting Vishnu Sahsaranamam. You may have desire to be spiritual. However, we don’t remember god until the critical time.

  • WILD ROSE: he has no interest in life. Apathy sets in. He becomes indifferent, resigning to the life situations. It’s neither sadness nor happiness. That’s apathy, as he is not bothered about what happens around him.
  • STAR OF BETHLEHEM: for accidents, shock, trauma. It is a great soother of physical and emotional pains. It is a must in all those situations.
  • MUSTARD: I need to see light in my life as my whole life is in darkness. I don’t know where to go.

The patients have to say the above words and based on that you can give the remedies. All the words mentioned for the remedies should come from the horse’s mouth. Their own expressions are important.

Abundant Support from Family and Flowers

Guru Mangala

My domestic help Anu cried saying that she has been abandoned with her child, by her husband a few years ago.

She is trying to earn and educate the boy. She lives with her poor mother, brother and sister-in-law. The sister-in-law is unhappy that this girl is being sheltered here and supported by the brother. This gives chance for lots of infighting between husband and wife. Anu feels guilty that she is the cause of her dear brother’s suffering. 

She saw me giving Bach flower remedy to my mother and asked me what that is. I told her how it works. She requested me for some flowers for herself. 

I gave her RESCUE REMEDY, PINE, CENTAURY, STAR OF BETHLEHEM, CHICORY, WHITE CHESTNUT and HONEY SUCKLE with WALNUT. 

Reasons: guilt (Pine), feeling used (Centaury), trauma/ pain (Star of Bethlehem), unable to let go/ clinging to brother (Chicory, Walnut), thoughts which haunt day and night (White chestnut) and regret of the past (Honey Suckle). 

Next morning she came smiling and said she was feeling confident that the troubles will be overcome. But within a day the sister-in-law created a huge fight and walked out of the house with her parents.  Anu was so sad and kept saying “this is all because of me.” I gave her Larch.   I gave her SWEET CHESTNUT to place in the NE corner of the room, and to sprinkle CRAB APPLE and WALNUT around the house. 

For the mother I gave RED CHESTNUT and WILLOW.

For the brother, I gave OAK, CHICORY and WALNUT.

I asked Anu to do forgiveness and told her mother also to keep forgiving the daughter-in-law.

She came running next morning, “Amma, the house is peaceful.  My sister-in-law returned and apologized to my brother. She actually fell at his feet and said she would never again fight over me.  I have also apologized to her.  We are a happy family now”.

Thank the flowers. 

Since that day, nearly 2 months ago, Anu is now happily earning extra money by working in a courier company along with my household, her son is admitted to UKG and sister-in-law helps with the boy’s studies and looks after him. There is respect for Anu and all is well.

 I am ever grateful to Naran and to the Flowers for the joy they bring to so many families. 

Anu is the local advertiser of flower power in Kanchipuram!!!  I have many people seeking   remedies.

Emergency Remedies That Can Save Lives

Surgery, Bleeding, Coma and Other Disasters waiting to happen

For any emergency situation, Bach Flower Rescue Remedy is the remedy. This will always help the patient.

Two days before the surgery, you will be admitted in the hospital; they will do all checkups; start taking Rescue Remedy then.

This is useful to get the patients out of coma.

Bleeding will stop if you splash Rescue Remedy water over the bleeding or intake the pills of Rescue Remedy.

Whenever a function is organized, you don’t want any children to fall and be in the hospital. In western corner of the house (or the hall) if you put two to three pills of Rescue Remedy in a glass of tumbler, no untoward incident will happen to children.

Anyway I am going to die, why bother with medicines

We feel apathetic and not interested in life. We have no grief. As apathy is emotionless state. “Our whole family has diabetes, so I can’t do anything it’s in my genes”. Give Wild Rose to them. They will develop enthusiasm and jest for life, which crucial for anybody to be alive in an emergency situation.

Lost the motivation to live – a Case history

A 60-year old lady was admitted in a hospital. After few days, she stopped taking medicines and stopped eating food as well, complaining that she is going to die anyway. Her son put Bach Flower Remedy Wild Rose pills in her drinking bottle. Within few days, she became normal. She started taking the medicines and was discharged within a week. Her son still thinks this remedy has saved his mother.

A Deadly Shock

  • For mental as well as physical shock
  • You fell down from your bike and get a physical trauma.
  • The surgical wound will be healed faster especially for diabetes patients.

Riteful Performance – a Case History

Who will perform the rites, the relatives asked? The son of the deceased is less than 10 years old and thus too young to perform.

After taking the Bach Flower Star of Bethlehem remedy in the form of drinking water (they didn’t know that they took it), the child went up to the relatives. He convinced them by saying, “I am aware that my father is dead. It’s my duty to perform my rites. My father will be happy. Please allow me”.

Such an act of courage he could exhibit thanks to Star of Bethlehem mixed in the drinking water.

Terror Situations

For unknown fear or unspecific fear, Bach Flower Aspen is the remedy. Whenever you go to a railway station or airport, if you are afraid that there might be a bomb blast, or a terrorist attack, and have a wild imagination about the probable terror incidents, then chant Aspen.  You will safely reach your destination.

Admission in an Emergency Ward

If anybody – close friends or relatives, is admitted in the hospital we will get restless. In this case Red Chestnut and Rescue Remedy will help you to come out of your worries.

If a person is admitted in the ICU, chant Rescue Remedy and Red Chestnut. They will be released immediately and placed in the normal ward. Even if they don’t get released immediately, it can help the patient get relieved from ICU faster. If you can go into ICU keep the paper with the name Rescue Remedy written under the pillow of the patient.

Touching the panic button easily

Even when you watch an accident in a TV, you go into terror and panic state. This indicates Rock Rose. You need to take Bach Flower Remedy Rock Rose in such situations, which is part of the Rescue Remedy. Therefore, you can take Bach Flower Rescue Remedy too.

A hopeless case

Beyond hopeless state and one comes to a conclusion, ‘God alone can help me’. They have given it up. For example, doctors had given up and say that the patient will be alive only for 24 hrs. In such a situation, a patient will come out of danger if he is prescribed Bach Flower Remedy Sweet Chestnut. Write the patient’s name and circle it with Sweet Chestnut and Rescue Remedy.
