Flower Essences for Emotional Healing

Sometimes I make great gains using Bowen Therapy for physical injuries, headaches, chronic pain syndromes, etc.  Yet there are times when after much improvement a client seems to be “stuck” and can not go any farther in their healing process.  This may be because of emotional energy blocks.  In other words, our issues can get stored in our tissues.  Have you ever read the book by Karol K. Truman, Feelings Buried Alive Never Die?  Great read.

Dr. Bach, an English medical doctor who also practiced homeopathy, began experimenting on himself with flower extracts  back in the 1930’s.  He noticed how he responded a particular way with pansy, for instance, and had a different response to clove.

Flower remedies are now widely accepted in the alternative healing arts.  They are made by soaking flower petals in water out in the sunlight and then adding brandy as a preservative (or vegetable glycerin sometimes).  It is then diluted to make the final remedy.  Remedies are used for different purposes:  to help a person go through a healthy grieving process; to give strength to get through a difficult circumstance; to help curb anger; to gain a clearer perspective on an issue, to have courage to express their opinion, etc.

I would love to hear from you, my readers, if you have used a particular flower remedy (or flower blend remedy) for some kind of emotional healing when you felt “stuck.”
