Worried about holiday entertaining?

As the Holidays approach, anxiety can mount.

A season which is supposed to be filled with love and acceptance is sometimes filled with apprehension, especially for those who have unresolved conflicts with family members.

It could be the inability to say no to hosting the big family dinner, or the fear and dread of not being able to measure up after saying yes.

If an inability to say no is making you dread the holidays, turn to the Bach Flower Essence Centaury.

If you are perfectly capable of producing a fantastic feast, but your confidence lags when thinking of critical relatives, begin now to use Larch and Mimulus.

Get yourself in tune with your higher self now - and enjoy the holidays this year.

If you aren't quite sure which of the Bach Flower essences you need, go to Feel Bach! and take the questionnaire.

Protect Your Pets This Halloween

Children may love Halloween, but it isn't the best time for pets.

They face two threats: One from strange people and noises, and the other from candy.

Please remember that chocolate can be deadly for dogs, so if you have children and they bring home a bag full of chocolate after Trick or Treat, be sure to get that chocolate up and away where the dogs can't tear into it after the kids are tucked in on Halloween night.

And as for the people and noises - start protecting them the day before by putting a few drops of Feel5ive in their water dishes.

Be sure to keep your dogs and cats indoors in the days leading up to Halloween. (Especially your black cats) When they need to go out, go out with them and bring them back in when you go in.

If your animals are prone to running out the door instead of away from it when strangers arrive, lock them away from the front door during those hours when children are coming around.

Our fun can be traumatic for our pets - so give them extra care as Halloween kicks off the holiday season.

Is Fear of Disappointment Limiting Your Success?

Psychologists and talk show hosts like to talk about Fear of Failure and Fear of Success, but I've never heard them talk about the other fear that prevents people from reaching for the stars. That one is Fear of Disappointment.

It's tied to hope – or rather, having the courage to hope.

Some who have tried and failed in the past are so afraid of being knocked down again that they're afraid to stand up. They're afraid to hope or to make any effort at all, because it's "safer" to just stay down.

Of course, that means they have unhappy, unfulfilling lives – but at least they're not disappointed. They get exactly what they expect every day. They're living in despair, but they mistakenly think that to try will only make things worse.

According to the Law of Attraction, we get what we think about most. Those folks think about failure, so of course they get more of it. The only pleasure they get is in saying "I told you so" to anyone and everyone who dared to hope for a better outcome.

The first step in climbing out of that ever-deepening rut of failure is to have hope – and the courage to try even if failure is a possibility.

Because this condition is so common, Feel Bach has created a "shelf blend" specifically formulated to bring back hope - and with hope comes the courage to move forward. This product is aptly named "Get Hope Back."

At only $7.95, it could be the best investment you'll ever make in your future.

The Bach Flower Essence We Need in Politics Today

Every time you turn on the news you hear it: Someone spouting hate at those who don't agree with them.

All claim to have the good of the country at heart, but none are willing to even consider the thoughts and opinions of the "other side."

Worse, they launch attacks on their opponents that go far beyond the subject at hand. Personal attacks have become the norm. Hate becomes the over-riding emotion, and some politicians are expert at stirring up "Hate for the other side" in their messages to their followers.

Hate is a destructive emotion – and it harms the hater more than the hated, but those whose lives are focused on hate don't seem to understand that.

There would be no point in telling these politicians about Bach Flower Essences. They probably wouldn't even understand the value of releasing hate in order to get on with working together to solve the country's problems. But, YOU no doubt do know the danger in hate and the value in letting it go.

If you've been influenced by these hate mongers, or if you've begun to hate at a more personal level, here's how to overcome it: Use the Bach Flower Essence Holly.

Holly lets your spirit connect with universal love. It won't cause you to approve of those you disagree with, but it will free you from destroying yourself with hate, so you can get on with loving your life.
