What a lovely weekend it has been. I tied up my broad-beans, tidied, weeded, prepared the ground for seeds, but didn’t plant out the Kale… a job for another day – hopefully when the sun comes out.
I have in mind (after looking at the garden with a herbalists eyes), that I will plant and identify as many BACH flowers, herbs and trees as I can manage. I don’t have many to collect actually to complete the set. However, some (like The Star of Bethlehem) won’t be available until Autumn next as they are bulbs… luckily I do have some original essence, so I can manage until then. I do like making my own – outside of Bach’s repertoire, from plants he could not access. This weekend I made Valerian, Wild Rose, and two of my own (not a Bach Remedies) Wisteria and Rhubarb Flower. Essences made for the client and gathered from my own garden are so much more powerful than an essence that has been gathered and bottled on the other side of the world.
THE YOGA OF HERBS.
You may not have given it any thought, but Ayurveda is the science of life. Evolution is a manifestation of latent potentials. In the seed is the tree, and in the tree is the forest. The plant kingdom exists to bring feeling into manifestation – each thing exists to nourish all others.
Flower essences are tinctures of liquid consciousness, and stored within them is an evolutionary force. They offer us the love and light from the stars. Easier to understand if you have read Emoto’s work on the “Messages of Water” (a hugely magnified photograph of a happy molecule of water to the right). This liquid consciousness can be considered educational for the psycho-spiritual dynamics of an individual. Dr.Bach was not the first to discover this. Yogis and Ayurvedic practitioners had realised and documented these energies hundred of years before he did, however, Bach (born in 1886) put the remedies and the ideas about the remedies, energies, emotions and moods into a language the ordinary person could understand.
Working with these vibrations offers one an opportunity to shift one’s beliefs, conceptions, ideas of science and long-term patterns to a place of greater awareness and understanding. As Dr.Bach realised, these products offer much more than the temporary relief of some emotional state or physical difficulty. They are contributing to a change in a soul’s life pattern and consciousness. This goes far beyond the cessation of some symptoms within one incarnation. When one looks deeply enough one realizes that it is only to increase consciousness that we incarnate in a body, moving through various physical, emotional, mental, spiritual difficulties to attain some self-awareness.
Flower essences adjust the flow of consciousness and karma that create the disease state. They influence the subtle bodies and ethereal properties of the anatomy and then gradually influence the physical body.
These are a safe, sometimes subtle form of therapy that before one even realizes what is occurring, positive change has happened. Long term difficult patterns can be shifted in days or months. Tremendous self-awareness occurs with an increase in the intuitive and or psychic part of oneself. These products work whether one is a believer or not. They have been very efffective with animals and plants. If one truly wants change, more satisfaction from life and enhanced wisdom these can benefit you greatly.
WISTERIA… Wisteria sinensis. Trust, fulfilment and enjoyment of sexuality, and allowing warm sensuous feelings in the body. This essence is particularly useful for women who feel uncomfortable about their sexuality and suffer from fear arising from sexual abuse.
My Flower Essences are gathered from Flowers, plants and trees in my garden or within a short walk along the creek or into the forest. Obviously they are organic, and steeped in rain water using the solar method of flower infusion. A tiny drop of Alcohol or Colloidal silver is used as a preservative.
RHUBARB…Isn’t this wonderful flower – and the seed stalks in my garden can reach up taller than me. It goes without saying that I have been waiting for this flower, and it speaks to me. For me it has always been about BALANCE, and this is the perfect essence at this time. With Rhubarb there is a greater coordination between the left and right brain hemispheres, creating a greater harmony of thought by balancing the analytical and the intuitive aspects. Plus, Rhubarb works on The heart chakra which is opened on a deep level, so one can understand love on more than just a physical level, perhaps even on a multi-dimensional level.
This essence can enhance brain function and allow people to get to the centre of any problem. Focussing on this essence can allow a greater ability for people to release emotions of grief and sadness – which are really swirling around for so many of us at this time.
I hope you are getting out in your back yard, and speaking to the spirits of the garden.
