Flowers to the Rescue

As a trained hypnotherapist, reiki master, and shaman, I have incorporated the therapeutic qualities of plants in my healing sessions. I have been using flower essences as healing helpers since the mid eighties and have had outstanding results.

I have found that preparing a remedy for the client to take home accelerates the healing process by supporting changes in old automatic emotional responses and outworn belief systems. The essences can help shift negative personality traits and attitudes into positive ones.

Dr. Edward Bach, a British physician, and scientist pioneered the development of the system using thirty-eight flowers in the 1930’s. Since then American companies, such as FES have researched and developed new essences using native plants.

When you think about it, flowers have always been used to express our emotions. We use them at weddings, celebrations and holidays to express our joy. Sending flowers on Valentine’s Day sends a message of love. A home-delivered bouquet can express congratulations or an apology. A vase of flowers next to a person in a hospital bed sends a wish to recover. A spray sent to a funeral supports our grief and mourning.  

Bach discovered that each flower could help a specific emotional or mental condition. What gives them their healing potency is the flowers’ subtle energy. Flowers are picked at the peak of their blossoming and put in glass containers holding distilled water for about three hours while exposed to sunlight. The flowers are then discarded, and the water preserved in brandy. The water’s molecular structure is charged and imprinted with the soul pattern of the flowers’ vibrational essence.  It is this ‘plant signature’ that heals.

The essences can enhance one’s inner experiences, help release emotional trauma and self-defeating thought patterns and clear up other problems such as indecision, fear, mental exhaustion, hopelessness, and more. They are non-toxic, and non-addictive and can be used with other medications. It is better to take small amounts of a flower essence over a longer period of time for best results as opposed to taking all at once. Four drops, four times a day is an average dosage. Essences are taken under the tongue, in a glass of water or can be rubbed behind your earlobes.

On Mother’s Day I visited our community garden and found three powerful healers in full bloom.
