The healing power of nature has been known almost since time began. Flowers and plants uplift us. Scents give pleasure, colours and form entrance us, and the whole splendour of nature nurtures us. On a more physical level, plants give us food and medicines.
But it is the invisible level, the level of vibrations, that is really fascinating. Science is staring to get interested in what we all know is true - the healing power of flowers. In the 16th century Paracelsus described the healing power of dew from flowers. Everything in the world is composed of vibrations, nature (and music) use these vibrations to provide harmonious patterns.
We all know instinctively which flowers and plants we like to look at. We are now discovering that just seeing them and touching them can help us feel differently. Even more interesting, making a flower essence, and taking it, can help support our feelings. Nature can help support us to reflect on our experiences, moving us on from stuck frames of mind and uplift us. Nature helps us feel better!.
Bach Flower Remedies:
Dr. Edward Bach (1886-1936) was a medical doctor, bacteriologist and homeopath. In the 1920s he practised homeopathy in Harley Street (London). However, he is better known for his work in creating the Bach Flower Remedies.
Bach had three key insights:
First, he observed that people were of a number of different types, according to their outlook on life and personality.
Second, he developed his intuitive sensitivity to the point where he was able to experience an emotional state, and then find the support from nature (in the form of an essence from the appropriate flower) that resolved this state.
Third, he developed a method of transferring the energy from the trees and flowers that he found helpful to water, which he then preserved with brandy, and so was able too dispense remedies from this source.
Bach worked with his new remedies, in London, Cromer (Norfolk) and finally settled for the last years of his life near Wallingford in Oxfordshire. His work was carried on after his death first by Norah Weeks and Victor Bullen, and then by others from the Bach Centre at his house Mount Vernon in Sotwell. Gradually people around Britain and then the world became intrigued by the benefits of his "drops".
Bach Flower Remedies are powerful yet gentle healing tools that can catalyse the resolution of deep emotional imbalances, as can homeopathy.
Bach remedies are potentised by the sun or by boiling, and then a one step dilution to stock essence, and one further to treatment bottle. Bach remedies work through the "mental" and "emotional": the more subtle aspects.
