Can flower power be potent enough to heal humans?

by Nubess Stories on September 05, 2020

Flower remedies have been used by many cultures over the decades. FES (flower essence services ) meet the great need for remedies that help people address the problems of the present-day- skin issues, anger, fears, grief, depression, hormone disturbances, stress relief, communication problems to name but a few. These essences not only help to give clarity to one's thought but also to address the root cause of the issue helping to peel off layers of negative emotions, limitations, beliefs, conditioning, replacing them with positive vibration in your consciousness giving you strength, willpower and commitment to follow and pursue one's goals and dreams. They help to develop a higher level of intuition, self-esteem, joy, spirituality and raise your vibrations.

Flower essence therapy is based on the core principle of the knowledge that emotions and attitudes are key factors in health and wellness. The Journey to Simple Healing is in use since the 1930s, discovered by Dr. Edward Bach who was an English doctor, bacteriologist, and homeopath. They are a system of 38 Flower Remedies that are known throughout the world for their simple, powerful, safe, and effective remedy that clears underlying negative emotions and instills positive vibrations from flowers which can restore happiness and joy in humans, animals, and plants. They can heal you emotionally, internally, and wholly.

The essence of a flower is harnessed in a way similar to how homeopathic extracts medicines. Essences are made by infusing a flower into the water, which is then left in the sun or through the boiling method. The water now holds the subtle healing vibrational imprint or energy of that flower. Flower essence remedies are very ingenious and gently impact our subtle bodies and emotional states because each emotion carries a specific vibrational frequency, and so each flower vibration can affect the vibration of specific emotions. The nature and color of every plant reflect the quality it can heal or build within a person. At its core, flower essence therapy is a relationship between humans and plants, a relationship that reflects our innate knowledge of the unity of all of creation. The more the Essences are used, the more one is likely to experience greater awareness and happiness in one's life.

Since they are subtle energetic remedies, the essences tend to work mostly on the subtle and energetic aspects of ourselves... For example, a common root cause of suffering is feelings of not being enough, unworthiness, which has many consequences ranging from inaction and disconnects from life to more outwardly cataclysmic or extreme self-sabotaging behavior. Flower essences are profound in that they are actually able to change completely these root causes into something conclusive and improve our overall health.

 Even during the flu pandemic of the last century Dr. Edward Bach, the founder of flower essence therapy knew that disquieting emotions, fear-based stressful reactions, mental attitudes all had profound effects on the physical body’s immunity, vitality, and resistance to disease. His acumen into the spirit-mind-body interaction in health and disease was decades ahead of his time and has been validated by modern science.

The 7 Bach Flower groups make it easier for us to separate the Bach Flower Remedies based on our feelings and then get our emotional balance restored.

When we ask ourselves how do I feel?  based on our feelings of

  • Fear
  • Uncertainty
  • Insufficient interest in the present
  • Loneliness
  • Oversensitivity to influences
  • Despondency
  • Over-care for other's

 However, the work of all great founders continues to develop after their death. The Flower Essence Society expanded the range of therapies of naturalized plants through research and development, extensive field studies to his original work. The development of new plant remedies to heal contemporary soul conditions- they are typically used in conjunction with the original Bach flower essences, or alone, according to the specific emotional needs of each individual.

People who take flower essences as an aid in coping with physical illness. They find that their connection to the illness begins to change; soon it becomes a comprehensible and meaningful aspect of their lives, The process awakens through flower essence therapy sets in motion a healing process that leaves us standing in awe before the divine mystery of the body as well as help us to cinch the oneness of mind and body based on the connection of the inner world to the outer, as paths to growth and awakening.

The resonance of these Essences is similar to that of meditation in that they enable the person to receive wisdom from their Higher Self. This dispenses negative beliefs held in the subconsciousness and allows the positive virtues of the Higher Self - love, light, faith, joy, faith, etc. to flood their being. When this happens the negative beliefs and thoughts are dissolved, balance is restored and true healing occurs.

"Dr. Edward Bach wrote ‘Disease of the body itself is nothing but the result of the disharmony between soul and mind. Remove the disharmony, and we regain harmony between soul and mind, and the body is once more perfect in all its parts.'
