What Are Flower Essences?
Because the essences of flowers operate more on a vibrational/electrical level rather than a biochemical (like the use of herbs or foods), the effects are felt in a more subtle way. However, subtle doesn’t mean it isn’t powerful or effective. What a person experiences is more of a shift in awareness, a shift in understanding or a shift in consciousness around a certain situation. It can help us understand and transform the underlying emotional issue.
For example, if someone is dealing with an issue from some sort of trauma from a situation that occurred at some point in his or her life, flower essences can help bring greater understanding to the trauma event as well as bring the emotional ability to transform, release and forgive or accept what happened.
Flower essences are essentially nutrients for the soul. They help us on an emotional level. We begin to see things in a new light and can begin to deal with things in a new way. This leads to taking different actions in regards to processing and resolving any issues we might be working through.
They let us work through things in a truly holistic and therapeutic manner. This also works to help physical diseases or issues as it is commonly known in holistic and natural medicine that every physical health issue has an emotional issue below the surface that has created this physical issue. So as we heal ourselves emotionally, we can begin to heal ourselves on a physical level. “As within, so without.”
Dr. Edward Bach has stated, “The action of the flower essences raises the vibration of the being…they cure by flooding the body with the beautiful vibrations of the highest nature- in whose presence there is the opportunity for disease to melt away like snow in sunshine.”
Healing The World
Since flower essences help us process and heal the underlying emotional issues, a person is better able to make different choices and take different actions to bring about even more healing.
I believe that as more and more people heal themselves with flower essences and make better choices and take different actions, they directly bring about more healing with their friends, their family and their community. As more and more people work together in a holistic way, our relationships with each other, with the ecosystem and planet itself experience greater harmony, and thus, greater health and happiness.
All plants we see have different cosmic information that has been used to create their flower and so every flower has a different and specific healing potential. For example, the Iris flower essence helps a person unleash their unique inner creativity and self-expression. It is also known as the “paintbrush of the soul.”
The Silversword flower essence is an incredibly unique essence as this plant is only found on the Haleakala Crater on the island of Maui, Hawaii. One could intuit that because a meteorite hit there, it brought with it this special plant. The benefits of Silversword flower essences can be to help put a person on his or her path of purpose. It can be used when a person is ready for their truest soul work.
I personally find flower essences work even better when combined with cell salts. Because the cell salts are mineral compounds and electrically conductive, they help the flower essences penetrate very quickly and efficiently into our bodies. One that uses both cell salts and flower essences is called Happy Heart. It has many rose flower essences in it as well as the Silversword flower essence. I believe why so many people are unhappy in their heart is because they feel they aren’t doing their truest soul work.
The Happy Heart has dramatically helped me in several ways. There are however, many other essences out there and many places to find them. Pets and kids also benefit tremendously from flower essences as the nervous system in pets and kids are usually even more sensitive than adults. This allows for the essences to be utilized even more effectively.
Here is a list of many flower essences and their benefits.
I believe the more people that use flower essences, the greater healing we as individuals will experience. I see this healing extending to our relationships with our friends, our families, our social systems, our ecosystem and all beings that live on this planet with us.
