Flower Essences

By Ayal Hurst

Flowers, like herbs, each carry a unique healing essence, or quality, which can be used to strengthen and support us on our Earth walk. Paramahansa Yogananda, one of the great spiritual teachers of our times said:

"Flowers are given to us for a purpose. Humbly serving all with their beauty, flowers say more to us about God than anything else. Each one brings a message that the heavenly father is right here."
Have you ever noticed that in every culture all people are drawn to the visual beauty and aromatic delights of flowers? That is because what is being recognized on an intuitive level is the healing power within them. The same is true when one gives oneself the gift of a calming, soothing walk in the woods, watches a glorious sunset, or listens to a beautiful piece of music. If you have experienced these peaceful moments, you have experienced a sense of upliftment in vibration, and an upliftment occurs in your own vibratory pattern. This is how flower essences work.

Flower essence therapy, also referred to as vibratory therapy, is a method of healing which views physical illness as a manifestation of an unhealthy mental, emotional, or spiritual pattern. Flower essences are taken to help to dissolve the root cause of an ailment. The harmonious vibrations of flowers offered to us through the blossoms act as a catalyst, enabling us to once again return to and experience our own inner harmony.

The process may be likened to the tuning of a guitar. By the use of a tuning fork, each string is then adjusted to its proper frequency or rate of vibration. Similarly, a vibration of peace may be introduced, through a particular flower essence, to dissolve restlessness; a vibration of cheerfulness may be taken to dispel gloom, and so forth.

The use of flower essences for healing was discovered by Dr. Edward Bach, an English medical doctor, bacteriologist, and homeopath, in the 1930's. Much to the dismay of his colleagues, Bach gave up a lucrative physician's career to walk the woods and fields in search of flower remedies. Not content with the approach of traditional medicine, and rejecting the palliative approach throughout his years of study and practice, Dr. Bach learned to treat the patient and not the disease.

Early one spring morning, Bach became absorbed in observing the dew that lay heavily on the ground. Being highly sensitive, he was able to understand that each dew drop magnetized by the sun's energy, contained the full and pure vibration of the plant upon which it rested.

The gorse plant, which grew abundantly and thrived on stony, dry heaths, Bach realized contained the vibration of perseverance, so necessary in overcoming hopelessness. Still another, the scleranthus plant, with numerous tangled stems, he found possessed the qualities of poise and balance.

In taking these essences, we are allowing a healing through the personality which then filters down to the physical level. It is in our personality, or state of mind, that disharmony, or dis-ease, truly begins.

In his book, Heal Thyself, Bach wrote:
"Disease is in essence the result of conflict between soul and mind, and will never be eradicated except by spiritual and mental effort."
Flower essences may be called bottled affirmations, for in taking into our bodies the vibration, the consciousness of these various wildflowers, we are affirming, accepting, and allowing positive qualities to blossom within us.

Flower essences do not have a mind altering effect. They do not make us sleep better, eat less, or run faster. Their strength lies in their ability to unblock the life force and allow us to attune to our true, harmonious nature. Like a diamond which has been covered with a layer of dust, we also can attune to our true radiance and release the distortions or dust which cover us. With the help of the pure vibrational, God-given essences of these flowers, we shine forth in our true beauty.

Bach wrote:
"And may we ever have joy and gratitude in our hearts that the Great Creator of all things, in his love for us, has placed the herbs in the field for His healing."
There is nothing addicting in the essences which goes through the digestive system because they work on an auric level. The essences are taken under the tongue, in drop form, cause no side effects, and cannot be overdosed. In addition, they will not affect, nor be affected by, any other medicine which is being taken.

Results vary considerably with the individual. The qualities of the essence may be felt with the first dosage. Sometimes it takes a month, although benefical effects are usually felt within three weeks when taken regularly on a daily basis. Considerations for this are many, the main ones being how quickly we are willing to grow and change, how ready we are to release old programming.
