“Health is there for us to accept any time we like…..” ~Dr.Edward Bach
A Flower Essence is a beautiful gift from Nature herself. It is a living energy medicine made from the imprint of a plant’s particular vibration into water. When drops of the essence are taken, the flower’s vibrational medicine enters into one’s body, or field, offering its gifts and healing energy to the receiver. Flower Essences are a pure and powerful way to work with plant medicines. Because the body doesn’t have to digest or assemble the physical/biological material of the plant, the essence is absorbed quickly through the etheric, emotional, mental, and spiritual bodies, thus allowing the healing vibration of the plant to work without barriers.
Within the world of Nature exists an infinite number of remedies, one to meet any occasion that might arise.
How do they work? Over time we collect things in our bodies; thought-forms, blockages, stress, emotions, patterns, and other unpleasant energies. These blockages create tension, pain, and heaviness not only in our physical bodies, but also in our etheric, emotional, mental, and spiritual bodies. These blockages restrict the flow of Life Force, as well as vibrations of Light- forgiveness, love, happiness, joy, pleasure, compassion- from moving freely through our beings. They have the potential to not only create heaviness and stagnation, but to eventually manifest in our physical bodies as illness or disease. Healing and freedom from these blockages comes when we surrender these energies from our outer fields to healing, hopefully before they have created disruption on the physical plane.
The gift of Flower Essences is that they work in the spiritual field of our body, filling our aura with a very particular harmonious light vibration. They assist in loosening, freeing, and clearing the energetic blockages, thought-forms, and emotions from our bodies. Their vibration assists us in subtle and not-so-subtle ways to become free…to remember ourselves as clean, clear, vessels of Light and Love.
It all began when the dedicated physician, Dr.Edward Bach, began characterizing the healing properties of the plant essences from which he became interested. After feeling discouraged by Western Medicine and even Homeopathy, Bach began to seek alternative methods of healing. He observed that if people could be at peace emotionally, they would be able to restore their bodies to health and stay healthy. Seeing as he had always felt most peaceful in the forest near his childhood home in Wales, he decided to take a break from practice and go there for a period of contemplation.
The story goes that Dr. Bach was looking for answers, and failing to find them. One day as he walked along a woody path, wondering whether or not he should return to his practice at all, he caught sight of the lovely flowers of Impatiens. Seeing the dew sparkling on the petals, he began to lick it off, as he remembered doing as a child. And Dr.Bach discovered, that within the world of Nature exists an infinite number of remedies, one to meet any occasion that might arrise. He taught that if we assist others in achieving emotional harmony, they will find Health. He showed us that two people who experience debilitating fear may have different physical ailments, but a remedy that addresses the fear will heal the ailments of both. Similarly, two people with cases of eczema but different emotions disturbing their peace can both have their eczema healed by taking remedies appropriate to the emotional symptoms. Brilliant.Being as sensitive as he was, he noticed that the irritation and impatience he had felt a moment ago had subsided. As many indigenous people have been mysteriously guided, so too, was Dr. Bach. He was shown, time and time again, that the water’s structural ability to hold the vibration of the flower’s medicine wasastounding.
Today Lucius and Lisa work with a number of various Essences, some of the original proofs provided by Dr. Bach, most intimately with the beautifully crafted remedies of Dr.Robert Stevens, as well as some of their own unique Flower Essences, bottled both in the local Pacific Northwest as well as the jungles of Peru.
“There are great qualities in which all men and women are gradually perfecting in themselves, possibly concentrating upon one or two at a time. They are those which have been manifested in the earthly lives of all the great masters who have, from time to time, come into the world to teach us, and help us to see the easy and simple ways of overcoming all our difficulties. These are such as: LOVE, SYMPATHY, PEACE, STEADFASTNESS, GENTLENESS, STRENGTH, UNDERSTANDING, TOLERANCE, WISDOM,FORGIVENESS, COURAGE, and JOY. And it is by perfecting these qualities in ourselves that each one of us is raising the whole world a step nearer to its final unthinkably glorious goal. We realize then that we are seeking no selfish gain or personal merit, but that every single human being, rich or poor, high or low, is of the same importance in the Divine Plan, and is given the same mighty privilege of being a savior of the world simply by knowing that he/she is a perfect child of the Creator. As there are these qualities, these steps to perfection, so there are hindrances, or interferences which serve to strengthen us in our determination to stand firm. These are the real causes of disease, and are of such as: RESTRAINT, FEAR, RESTLESSNESS, INDECISION, INDIFFERENCE, WEAKNESS, DOUBT, OVER-ENTHUSIASM, IGNORANCE, IMPATIENCE, TERROR, and GRIEF. Real health is happiness and happiness so easy of attainment because it is happiness in small things, doing the things that we really love to do, being with the people that we truly like. There is no strain, no effort, no striving for the unattainable. Health is there for us to accept any time we like.”
