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 Remedies for Pain

Naran

Left arm pit – nobody is helping you, so suppressed anger will be present – Centaury and Willow for pain.

Right side arm pit – Holly, Willow

Lower back pain – Chicory

Whenever you have pains shifting from one place to another then take Scleranthus

Numbness from sitting long hours

If there is numbness from sitting long hours, then the remedies prescribed are:

Numbness in the Leg from sitting– Hornbeam and Walnut,

Hand – Wild Rose, Centaury, Pine and Willow

Calcarea Phos -6x (homeopathy) 3 tablets three times a day for one month will reduce the numbness to a very great extent – in fact, numbness will not be there.

Flowers for Harmony in Relationships and Family

For harmony in relationships and family, I have formed certain combinations:

  • The standard combination I give is Beech, Willow, Walnut, Cherry plum and Chicory
  • Another one I give is Agrimony, instead of Cherry plum (Agrimony Beech Willow Walnut Chicory)
  • Agrimony, Beech, Walnut and Wild Rose is another one
  • Finally: Beech, Walnut, Holly, Willow and Cherry plum
  • Project the flowers Sweet Chestnut, Holy, Vine, Water violet for violence in the world

How to finalize the combination required?

Based on the symptoms and situations mentioned below, decide which combination suits you:

  • Somebody wants peace give them Agrimony combination. Where there is Agrimony, there is peace. Just to maintain peace, they will not blame or criticise anybody.
  • Beech: for fault-finding and criticizing
  • Willow: blaming others for our problems
  • Walnut: for any two person to adjust with each other
  • Chicory: not to be possessive. The possessive mentality will lead to suspicion.
  • Cherry Plum: in the midst of a conflict, one should not loose control.
  • In the family there will be a lot of hatred and suspicion: Chicory and Holly.
  • Wild rose: when we are not able to come out of the rut. Wild rose will liberate us from the problem. Wild rose will give inner motivation to live the life in full and not to loose interest.

Get out of prison – any prison?

Somebody is in jail.  To bring them out Sweet Chestnut, Wild rose and Chestnut bud.

Regenerate Your Life! Rejuvenate Yourself!

The combination required is: Sweet Chestnut, Olive and Ruby.

Recovering from a Failed Business

The combination can re-generate a person or a business from a major setback. When the business is down and you are not able to bring it up, you need these remedies.

Regeneration means coming out of total destruction. The business has to come again, from rock bottom.

Recovering from a Serious Illness

Let us say, you were afflicted by Jaundice. When you come out of it, you will be totally exhausted. This combination would help you to recover faster. In addition, you may listen to Mooladhara Crown Chakra Activation CD for a quick recovery.

Sweet Chestnut means Creation 

It is not a flower, but a tree. During the entire summer it will become dark and dry. Even without water, the tree will be porous and dark. In July, after the monsoon, it will be full of flowers. Thus, it represents new creation.

To create something new, it is only possible for the divine. You can’t create anything new. You can only use what’s existing.

Conceiving a Child

This is very good remedy for conceiving a child. Creation has many meanings including father, hatch etc. To conceive a child both husband and wife have to take Sweet Chestnut.

No Savings, Broke, Invention, Re-habitation, 100% Production

  • No savings: Sweet Chestnut and Wild Rose. Enough money earned but no savings. All unnecessary expense will be cut off.
  • A New-self will emerge, when Sweet Chestnut is taken. If you are beginning something new, then take that remedy.
  • To do invention and research: give the combination of Sweet Chestnut, Water Violet, Oak and Mustard. It will bring in more and more inventions in day-to-day life.
  • For re-habitation: Sweet Chestnut
  • For floods in Pakistan, we can pray to Sweet Chestnut and send it to them. It has never happened like this before.
  • Production of any plant should produce 100% regularly, without slowing down: Sweet Chestnut, Walnut and Hornbeam. Any production will be uninterrupted then, like weaving production. Produced has to be sold as well. Therefore, Walnut and Hornbeam.

Expressions of Sweet Chestnut:

  • “I am broke”
  • Can I write off my dues? I am shattered means: Sweet Chestnut.

After my marriage, my wheezing increased!

Lalitha

I am a student of Shobana, who teaches yoga in the Bach Flower Center.

Few months back, my cook’s daughter Hema got married. She visited my home a couple of days of back and mentioned to me that her wheezing has increased just after her marriage.

I consulted Shobana, who after hearing the details, asked me to give Hema, the Bach Flower Remedy Walnut. After taking the Walnut pills a couple of times, Hema’s condition got significantly improved.

Shobana explained to me later, as this has happened after Hema’s marriage – a transition in her life, Walnut has helped her to resolve her health issue.

Naran S Balakumar’s 61st birthday Celebration

How Bach Flower Remedies, Reiki and Angels Helped in Smooth Conduct of the function

On His Own

Naran S. Balakumar celebrated his Shashtiaptha Poorthi (61st birthday celebrations) on 2nd August 2009 in Chennai peacefully and joyously. He sought the divine help of Bach Flowers and Reiki to ensure that this important event goes off without any glitches and hassles.

Please note that Balakumar’s only daughter is based in Singapore and most of his close relatives are elderly people. So, help available to Balakumar to organize an event of this importance and scale was limited.

It’s all about having a good start

As the event was getting finalized, he sought the help of Sweet Chestnut, Walnut and Hornbeam. He mixed this Bach Flower combination in the main water in the house so that everyone is in that energy field.

Ensuring that event goes off as planned

He changed this combination to Sweet Chestnut, Walnut and Gentian for the last 15 days leading to the day of Shashtiaptha Poorthi. He added Gentian to ensure that there is no regression to the plans and that the event goes off as planned.

Making sure that no untoward incident happens

He added Rescue remedy to the Sweet Chestnut, Walnut and Gentian combination for the penultimate day and the day of the event to ensure that there is no untoward incident (like a child getting hurt while playing etc.,) on the premises of the event.

He placed a glass of water filled Sweet Chestnut, Walnut, Gentian and Rescue Remedy at different corners of the Mandapam (venue) on the day of the event. He also invoked Reiki angels and Arch Angels like St. Germain for happy and smooth flow of the event.

How do you invoke angels? Merely request the angels to come & be present in the place/event of your choice and request the Angels to do their duty.

Everyone was filled with Joy and Energy

Thanks to the divine blessings of the Reiki Angels, Arch Angels, Bach flowers and the Gods invoked in the event, the Shashtiaptha Poorthi went off peacefully and joyously. Few people even felt the subtle difference in the energy field in the venue!

The owner of the Mandapam (venue) commented that he rarely sees functions and events that go off so smoothly like this one. He also offered to provide A/c in the hall and rooms at no extra cost.

Serve a tasty food

We always remember the taste of the food more than the event. So, Naran added the Sweet Chestnut, Walnut, Gentian and Rescue Remedy combination in the main water used for cooking. This helped in the food being very tasty, which was appreciated by most of the friends and relatives who had come for the function/event.

The caterer got quite a few enquiries so much so that he exhausted the visiting cards he was carrying! No stomach upset! Even after one month or two months, attendees talk about his Lunch.

No Negative Energy around whatsoever

The above Bach flower combination also helps in warding off evil eye and negative energy from the event and those involved in the event.

No wastage of food

The function happened over two days. During first day, he had organized a Homam at his place. On that day he was expecting around 100 guests. Though, only 60 turned up. So the food got wasted.

Next day was the Shashtiaptha Poorthi function. He had organized break fast for 100 and lunch for 400 guests. He was worried that food might go waste again. So he called upon the Animal Spirit Guide Wolf and prayed, ““Wolf! Please make sure that everybody eats well and no food gets wasted this time”.

100 guests came for the breakfast and 401 turned up for lunch. No food was left uneaten or wasted.

Angels and Divine are Waiting to Help You

Thus, you can also invoke the divine energy of Reiki Angels, Bach Flower, Animal spirits and Arch Angels to organize any important events/functions in your family/office and get benefited!

Bach Flower Remedies for Pregnancy

Mimulus

During entire period of pregnancy, Mimulus can be used, for there will be a scan every three months. Fear of scan; fear of being reported thyroid problem; “What if the doctor says something bad about the position of foetus?” These fearful thoughts can be healed by Mimulus.

The fortune part is Mimulus can minimise any expenditure. Normal delivery will cost less than caesarean delivery. In other words, Mimulus throughout pregnancy will pave for normal delivery!

Wherever there is specific fear, Mimulus has to be there to help you.

Red Chestnut

During development of foetus, the mother will worry, “Will my child’s brain will be well developed? Will its health be good? Will the child be without any problem?” Through out pregnancy Red Chestnut has to be given.

Rescue Remedy

At the time of delivery, pain is intensive. The pregnant women can chant Rescue Remedy. Others close to her have to take Rescue Remedy and Red Chestnut. Write the name of the patient and circle it with Rescue Remedy, as because pregnant women can’t chant it, for pain will be too much then. Be sure the delivery will be normal and smooth.

Agrimony

During 8th month of pregnancy, the lady will be affected by restless leg syndrome. Agrimony and Impatiens can heal it.

Scleranthus

It’s a good remedy for nausea and vomiting, especially during the 3rd month. 9th month starting, the doctor will fix up the date for delivery. As the date gets near we get impatient (Impatiens). Scleranthus person will postpone, while an Impatiens would like to have the delivery immediately. Therefore, Scleranthus and Impatiens is a good combination during the last stages of pregnancy, to have the delivery on time.

Cerato and Chestnut Bud

To beget intelligent children, to make sure the IQ of the child is good, flower remedies is the best choice. One can listen to the Bach Flower Meditation CD by Naran S Balakumar.

Walnut

During entire period of pregnancy every month is a transition. Therefore, Walnut is the remedy.

Olive

If there is total physical exhaustion

Harmony at Home

If during pregnancy, peaceful harmonious atmosphere is to be there at home, for which Beech Willow, Agrimony, and Cherry Plum can be helpful.

Special Remedies for Pregnancy

Let Eshwar Protect

This is a combination to be given throughout the pregnancy: Elm, Sweet Chestnut, Hornbeam, Walnut, Aspen and Red chestnut.

Elm: Person has to manage oneself. It expands the mental ability and physical vitality of the mother. Sweet Chestnut: for the divine grace if a child has to be born safely. Hornbeam: continuous movement; Walnut: for transition. Aspen whatever unknown fear one has. Most of the time, the pregnant woman can not figure out the fear. Red Chestnut: concern for the growing baby.

The first letter of each of the remedies if coined together will form the name, ‘ESHWAR’. If there is a grace of Eshwar – Lord Siva, everything will go on well.

Fifth Month of Pregnancy

Chicory: foetus will start feeling the touch of the mother at the end of the 5th month. Either you can chant all the flower names or listen to Bach Flower Remedy meditation CD. As per Ayurveda, mind starts developing from 5th month of pregnancy. Thanks to flowers, the mind of children will develop well and will be able to understand better. In addition, so many mental faculties will develop better in the child.

Sixth Month of Pregnancy

IQ and brain development: Oak, Chestnut Bud, Cerato, Hornbeam, Walnut and Clematis. For 5 minutes, chant the remedies and keep the hands on the belly (womb). This will help in both right and left brain development and the child will be highly intelligent.

From the 8th month onwards

Add Gentian and Hornbeam to the above combination. Add gentian to combination so that there is no regression in the foetus. Around 8th month, the mother will not be able to sleep properly and will be tossing in the bed – Scleranthus is the remedy. When dates are announced, Scleranthus and Impatiens. Whenever the pregnant women go for checkups, Mimulus has to be given. For easy and natural delivery: bio-26 – this Bio salt is available in homeopathy shops. From the 4th month onwards, four tablets, three times a day.

Ninth Month

The mother-to-be is admitted in the hospital. Pain will increase. Give her Rescue Remedy. As her parents can’t bear their daughter cry, give them Rescue Remedy with Red Chestnut.

After Delivery

White Chestnut and Walnut has to be given to the mother. 1st or 2nd day breast feeding will be difficult – Elm and Chestnut Bud. After the delivery, in the bathing water, add Walnut and Star of Bethlehem (need not be given orally to child) or you can chant them to baby’s ears. After 15 days, it can be given orally. For child and mother, if there is fluid in the ear, give them Heather and Crab Apple.

The Best Safety Locker in the World – a story

A traveler was carrying lot of money with him. A thief figures that out. He joins him by being friendly with him. They found a traveler’s bungalow to rest for the day. During late hours, the thief searches for the booty, but he could not find it.

Next day morning, out of curiosity he asked the traveler where he has hidden the money. The traveler said that he had kept the money under the thief’s pillow, as he was sure that the thief would not search under his own pillow.

Do not search everywhere else, as the answer is within your own mind. Search within is the key to life. This is the message of Cerato.

Managing the Current Economic Downturn

S. Malini

Nowadays, we notice a sense of recession everywhere.  Please let us know how we can handle ourselves during this global economic downturn.

Naran S. Balakumar

What is recession?

Recession is a form regression in the progress of a nation or of an individual.  It implies a sudden down fall in the economic status of the Individual/Nation.  Sudden fall means regression. Regression is the key word for Gentian, the Bach Flower Remedy.

What is the implication of Regression – the messages for the Individual facing it?

One has to change to improve himself. In this period of recession, one need not have to feel depressed. Repeatedly, when we talk about the word Recession, it becomes a living entity – a life force. Then it will start ruling us.

A new way of thinking and a change in attitude, is what is called for now. Regression will yield to Change and Change would lead to growth.

The Bach Flower Remedies Gentian and Walnut alone can easily make a person overcome this period of economic downturn.

We have to be in the state of “FIND DIVINE ORDER NOW” (chant the Switch Words to be in that state). This is the indirect message for you from the period of Recession. If we find divine order, we can COUNT DIVINE, meaning we can count on miracles. The Switch Word “Count” will help you to find the money in your life.
