How Do You Help People Who Don't Already Know About Bach Flower Essences?
This last week I was faced with a situation in which I was very tempted to slip into my "evangelist" role and start talking about Bach Flower Remedies. I resisted, because the person who needs help is a new client and I didn't feel it was my place...
But the more I think about it, the more I wish I had told him that White Chestnut could help him get through his current situation. He had confided that his oldest child had just gone off to college and his sense of loss had brought back old feelings of loss. He was going over and over losing his sister and then his parents. He said "Those thoughts are like a butterfly, flying round and round in my head."
So, what do you think? I don't really know this man, and our relationship isn't of a personal nature. Yet - he did confide personal information.
Should I have used that opening to tell him about Bach Flower Essences?
What would YOU have done?
What do you do when the person in need is a relative or friend?
So many people are "stuck" in thinking that doctors and pharmaceuticals are the only answer to their problems... I hesitate to jump in with any but my closest friends, my husband, and my kids.
But maybe, since Bach Flower Essences can change lives for the better, we have a duty to share the information?
I would love to hear your thoughts on this...
