Frequently asked questions about Bach Flower Therapy
What do the Bach Flower remedies help us in ?
Unlike pharmaceuticals, which suppress symptoms, flower essences work by the principle of resonance in the subtle body where imbalance starts. Bach Flower Remedies help us in -
Fighting Disease – According to Dr. Bach, disharmony between the personality and the soul is the root cause of all disease- imbalances is the true cause of disease. The best time to take the remedy is when an imbalance first arises, long before a physical illness begins.
Overcoming Emotional Disturbances – The 38 flower remedies each aim at a different state of mind or emotion from which mankind can suffer. It covers every known emotional state such as depression, worry, fear, anger, despair, anxiety etc.
Limiting Personality Traits -They also help us to overcome personality limitations such as dominating, shyness, aggression, laziness and lack of self-confidence. All traits that keep us from success at work or relationships.
Overall Self- development – Sometimes our wavering emotions and external influences make it difficult for us to hear our inner voice, and we are unable to align our goals to it with focus and clarity. Bach Flower Remedies help clear the confusion and calm the mind, so it can take the correct decision. For eg the flower remedy ‘Cerato’ helps us to pick the right career option, ‘Wild Oat’ gives us direction when we are clueless about our career path, and ‘Walnut’ protects us from disruptive influences that cause us to stray from our path.
Vibrating Positive Affirmations - Each flower not only corrects our negative imbalance but also instils a postive affirmation within us. For eg. Holly is a flower for those who give in to anger, rage, feelings of envy and jealousy. After taking this remedy the person will be filled with a positive potential - he will become warmhearted, radiate goodwill and have a profound understanding of human emotions.
Are Bach Flower Remedies safe?
The Bach Flower Essences are safe for everyone and have no side-effects. They can be used by anyone, even children, pregnant women and animals. The Essences compliment every healing modality. All pure flower essences are neutral in nature and subtle in effect.
They cannot create an allergic reaction because these remedies are not taken from the pollen of the actual plant, but from the petals of the plants. True flower essences have no fragrance, dye, flavour or preservatives so there is nothing in them you can react negatively to, or that could interfere with medicines or herbs you are taking.
Bach Flower Remedies are not habit- forming, since they consist of no physical substance and are merely taken to reestablish harmony. When a person's balance has been restored, a remedy has no further effect.
How Do Bach Flower Remedies Work?
4 drops 4 times a day sets into motion a unique cycle of healing and transformation. The beauty of this system is that it's tailor- made for each one. Each flower embodies a certain energy or vibration that aims at healing or balancing a particular human state of mind or certain potential of the soul. For e.g. the Flower Essence Larch corresponds to the potential that has to do with self-esteem. Taking Larch sends impulse to and unblocks the energy field that is distorting this potential and reestablishes the positive vibration: lack of confidence transforms into self-esteem.
What happens in a consultation ?
The Bach Flower consultant begins by asking the patient a few questions to assess his or her emotional state, personality, mood and problem. She then prepares a treatment bottle by combining different essences to address the disease or problem of the patient. The consultation includes one month of medicines.
