“The medicine peoples of many cultures have used flower essences since ancient times, but only in the past seventy years or so, have they become better known.” The Alchemy of the Desert, Second Edition.
Flower Essences (FE) have been used for healing by many cultures for thousands of years. FE do not overwhelm or force, they assist an individual in becoming conscious of things that are already happening and aid the individual in shifting to a new awareness and way of being. The essences effect a shift in consciousness, and each individual may experience the effects in a different way.
FE remedies not only help to give clarity to one's life but also the courage, strength and commitment to follow and pursue goals and dreams. They can assist with the development of a higher level of intuition, self-esteem, spirituality, creativity and joy. This benefits the individual, society and the planet.
The effect of FE can be similar to that of meditation in that they enable the individual to access the wisdom of their Higher Self. This facilitates the release of negative beliefs held in the subconscious mind and allows the positive virtues of the Higher Self - love, joy, grace, abundance, courage etc. to come forward. When this balance is restored true healing occurs.
A FE is the vibrational imprint (healing energy) of a flower that has been transferred and stabilised onto a carrier solution and are used to work with imbalances at a physical, emotional and higher level, bringing about emotional and spiritual balance and well-being in the individual. FE can help an individual recognise, resolve, or release different conditioned ways of perceiving the world and can help them experience greater well-being and harmony in their lives. By creating harmony distinct changes in physical, emotional and behavioural patterns can be experienced including greater spiritual awareness.
As FE are used an individual begins to resonate in harmony with the qualities of the FE, disharmonies begin to change. It is not necessary to believe in FE to experience their beneficial effects. They have been used successfully with adults and children, animals and plants.
Flower essences can be used in a number of ways. The most common way is to take them orally. Our experience shows that it is not necessary to take them internally. They can also be used by adding five to seven drops in a plant sprayer bottle and misting a room or over the body or in specific areas in a room, or dripping them onto the body in specific areas.
What is important to remember is that they are vibrational in nature, and surrounding oneself with them, inside or outside, is the best way to experience their beneficial effects.
