Here I am and we are deep into Christmas prep. Not me personally – I don’t do Christmas. I think it is a device organised by big business to get you to spend money. So go ahead – spend if it makes you happy. There are a lot more, longer lasting ways to get happy I have to say.
Making art makes me happy – and I am pleased to have finished the fungi poster “FABULOUS FUNGI” which will be printed on Thursday. I will put it on etsy as a printable (ready to frame) and as a hard copy.
Are you into the Victorian Tree and all the glitter? One of my clients does her house to look like a Christmas card, and it does. There must be a design plan – every year is more particular, more Hollywood than the last. It is beautiful, if you like living in a movie set – any minute Jo March is going to walk in the door and call for “Marmee”. (Maybe like my mum she was waiting for a Royal visit). Life happens around this very complex Christmas Tableaux. But as I said. Not at my place. I have beautiful free time, almost like Covid, to meet friends who drop in, work in the garden (I have got seeds, mulch and potting mix all ready), write, and of course – DRAW- and go almost nowhere.
THE BACH FLOWERS
Working on these remedies for persons, animals and plants is taking up all of my head space – although I do have some wonderful new clients thanks to some success. You probably think I have gone nuts, but no, it’s just that the “nuts” is showing. I have been working on the fringes of Bach Therapies for many years. I used them mostly for myself, and my household (and plants). Since I have qualified as a therapist and trainer – Covid gave me the time – I have been doing more and more.
I have been getting more deeply into how Bach and yoga fir together (although one never knew the other). I have written a short course on Bach Therapies , the basics from which you can branch out into other areas….animals, plants. This CERTIFICATE course is under $55 on Etsy – A Christmas gift to you “THAT KEEPS ON GIVING” www.myyogabooks.etsy.com. It fits really well with CCP if you have done that.
For Bach, the real cause of disease is a distortion of the wavelength in the energy field in the body (the koshas). They slow down, exerting an effect that results in negative states of mind such as worry, fear, anxiety and impatience. These negative states so deplete the individuals vitality, that the body loses its natural resistance and becomes vulnerable to infection and illness. Like Hahnemann therefore, Bach believed that the patient should be treated rather than the disease, and the cause rather than the effects.
Hahnemann (the Father of Homeopathy and the man who influenced Bach to pursue Flower Therapies) said: Disease will never be cured or eradicated by present materialistic methods, for the simple reason that disease in its origin is not material. What we know as disease is an ultimate result produced in the body, the end products of deep and long acting forces, and even if material treatment alone is apparently successful, this is nothing more than temporary relief unless the real cause has been removed. (1931 p.6.)
Bach’s research led him to conclude that positive, healthy states of mind could be restored by the energies found in flowering trees, plants, bushes and special waters. He considered his remedies to be a complete system of treatment requiring no “Extension or Alteration”.
LET US ALL BE LIKE THE LOTUS, UNAFFECTED BY THE MUD. DO THE COURSE!
I will see you on the mat sometime
Namaste – Jahne
