FLOWER ESSENCES have been a form of healing for eons. There is evidence that suggests the use of flower essences in ancient Egypt and Sumeria. The Australian aboriginal elders knew of the benefits of working with a particular flower or plant in order to receive its healing frequency. The modern day father of flower essences, Dr. Edward Bach, observed that morning dew contains potentized healing virtues of the whole plant.

Everything has a vibrational frequency and every vibrational frequency is unique to its origin. Flowers, crystals, birds, whales, people, planets, angels all have their own special vibrational frequency. Mental, emotional, and physical diseases also have a unique vibrational signature and there is a sympathetic resonance in flower essences that matches the vibrational frequency of every nuance of the human condition.

By taking an essence, the patterning of the plant's energy is released into the energetic body and the problem is brought to the surface so that it can be acknowledged and let go. (to feel but not to fuel) This process can often be instantaneous but in cases of deep routed clinging patterns, can take several weeks to irradiate.

Flower essences can help to give clarity to one's life and also the courage, strength and commitment to follow and pursue one's goals and dreams. They help to develop a higher level of intuition, self esteem, creativity and fun. For example, Hornbeam will help those who feel they don't have the strength to get through the day by energising the spirit and promoting mental vitality. The more the essences are used, the more one is likely to experience greater awareness and well-being in one's life.

The effect of these essences is similar to that of meditation in that they enable the person to access the wisdom of their higher self. This releases negative beliefs held in the subconscious mind and allows the positive virtues of the higher self, such as love, joy, faith, courage, to flood their being. When this happens the negative beliefs and thoughts are dissolved, balance is restored and true healing occurs.

Once the underling emotional imbalance has been recognised and the correct essence(s)have been prescribed it is then possible to clear away any emotional turmoil and hostile waveforms from the body, aura and surrounding fields. Ultimately every state of psychology has a corresponding state of physiology: a healthy mind manifests a healthy body.

The way in which essences are administered is by putting drops under the tongue or in juice or water. Alternatively, they may be applied to the acupuncture sites:

Flower essences are safe, non-toxic, and do not contradict conventional prescribed medicines and are also safe for animals and children.

"that beautiful plant Agrimony...
with its church-like spire, and its
seeds like bells will bring the peace
that passeth all understanding"
Edward Bach

The most famous of Bach Flower Remedies and a must for the first aid box.
This panacea contains five flower essences: Star of Bethlehem (shock) Rock Rose (terror) Impatiens,
(out of sync with the moment) Cherry Plum (fear of the mind giving way) Clematis (passing out)
The key factor is that when one is in a severe state of shock, due to an accident, calamity, devastating news of a dear one passing away, these conditions can cause an energetic trauma whereby consciousness is diminished and the body’s healing energies withdraw from the physical body. Rescue Remedy prevents the disintegration of the energetic system, restores it to normal, and reinstates the healing process.

(a study documented by Doc Childre (HeartMath) shows that when one becomes distressed or angry for a five-minute period, cortisol levels increase. Cortisol, known as the 'death hormone' suppresses the immune system. One can experience suppressed secretory Immunoglobulin A (IgA antibody) for as much as six hours after being distressed for only five minutes. Secretory IgA serves as the human body's first line of defense against disease. Lower than normal levels of IgA leave us more susceptible to colds, flu, respiratory and heart diseases and can accelerate aging)
