Emotions to cultivate

I fell in love with the gentle emotional healing offered by Bach Flower Remedies many years ago. And as time has passed, I find new ways to describe their effects almost every time I use them. I also love connecting with other practitioners, and hearing their perceptions of the effects of these gentle healing remedies.

I also love to read about them. I have recently been reading a book called Bach Flowers for Mind-Body Healing by Jennifer Barraclough. Jennifer is a Bach Foundation Registered Practitionerm and medical doctor in New Zealand.

In one of the appendices of her book she briefly summarises each of the Bach Flower Remedies. I was particularly enamoured with the positive quality she associates with each flower.

Here they are, to inspire you to find the flower remedy that is perfect for you today:

Agrimony – emotional honesty
Aspen – psychic sensitivity
Beech – tolerance
Centaury – service
Cerato – intuition
Cherry Plum – composure
Chestnut bud – learning from experience
Chicory – motherliness
Clematis – reality focus
Crab apple – cleansing
Elm – responsibility
Gentian – trust
Gorse – hope
Heather – self sufficiency
Holly – love
Honeysuckle – releasing the past
Hornbeam – vitality
Impatiens – patience
Larch – self confidence
Mimulus – bravery
Mustard – joy
Oak – relaxation
Olive – regeneration
Pine – self forgiveness
Red chestnut – compassionate detachment
Rock rose – courage
Rock water – flexibility
Scleranthus – balance
Star of Bethlehem – comfort
Sweet chestnut – deliverance
Vervain – enthusiasm
Vine – authority
Walnut – constancy
Water violet – communication
White chestnut – peace of mind
Wild oat – life purpose
Wild rose – zest for life
Willow – self responsibility

Do you need a little more of one or more of these qualities in your life? Maybe some Bach Flower Remedies will help you release what no longer serves you and connect with qualities that have been missing.

Let me know if you need a hand choosing which remedy is best suited for you. I am happy to offer you a consultation, and journey awhile with you on your path back to emotional and mental happiness and wellbeing.

Reiki for self-care

Have you ever wanted the ability to calm yourself during a stressful situation?

Have you ever needed to ease anxiety or panic, but been unable to dial-down the volume on these intense emotions?

Reiki helps bring balance and calm to your body and mind.

By learning Reiki you will have Reiki energy in your hands whenever you need it.

During that stressful meeting at work, you can discretely activate Reiki energy, place your hands on your lap, and you will soon begin to feel more centred and more able to respond to the situation with poise and grace.

When you are feeling exhausted and drained, Reiki will help you reenergise.

When you are in pain, physically or emotionally, Reiki will help ease your suffering.

Practicing self-Reiki everyday helps you feel relaxed, calm, contented and serene.

I enjoy practicing self-Reiki everyday. Usually it is forms a part of my meditation practice. Sometimes it is while watching tv in the evening with my family. And other times it is just before I fall asleep.

By welcoming Reiki energy into my life, I am taking care of myself, and when I take care of myself I have more than enough energy to take care of everyone around me.

Reiki has changed my world for the better. I invite you to bring your life into a better state of balance and harmony by learning Reiki too.

Have you lost your joie-de-vivre?

Do you feel that today is just like yesterday all over again?
Do you feel like your life is beginning to resemble the movie ‘Groundhog Day’?
Has your life lost is zest?
Do you remember the last time you felt a sense of vibrant spiritual vitality?

The Bach Flower Remedy Hornbeam is often referred to as the remedy that helps remove procrastination.
Did you know it also works on a far deeper and more subtle level?

Hornbeam helps people who live too much in their heads find their balance in their physical being.

“The Hornbeam weariness is a state of exhaustion
arising from one-sided demands on the mental level
with no way to balance things physically…”
~ from Mechthild Scheffer’s
The Encyclopedia of Bach Flower Therapy.

Examples of people who may need Hornbeam include:

  • students who have been studying hard for months, and haven’t had time to enjoy a little exercise;
  • office workers who work long hours at their computer all day, watch tv in the evenings, and don’t have time to enjoy the outdoors;
  • people who spend most of their time in thoughts, in mental activity, and in intellectual pursuits;
  • people who take in so much information they feel their head is heavy;
  • people whose lives have become automated as they follow the same routine day after day.

People who need Hornbeam feel that their life has lost all its juiciness – life has become a regimented list of duties that must be fulfilled, with no time left for fun. They feel tired at the mere thought of all they need to do each day.

Hornbeam helps you find the balance between tension and relaxation.

Hornbeam helps you hear the guidance of your Higher Self, and listen to its whispers. Your Higher Self will help you see spontaneous opportunities for fun, and help you allow relaxation and down time in to your world. In this way, when you return to your work it will be with a sense of renewal and refreshment, and your revitalised creativity will transform duties into joy.

Let Hornbeam help you create a life you love, and one that you feel is worth living.
