Feel5ive - a help during times of sorrow

This week a friend wrote me about having to have a beloved horse put to sleep. He was very ill and the vet had explained that there was no hope.

She was understandably upset as she waited for the vet to arrive, and hoping that she wouldn't fall apart. And then she remembered the bottle of Feel5ive that had gotten her through some stressful times last Spring.

It didn't take away the sadness, but it did let her calm down and deal with the day without, as she said "Turning into a puddle."

Since she hadn't needed to use Feel5ive in several months, she almost forgot that she had it. She said she was awfully glad that she remembered. It not only helped her get through that afternoon, but helped her stay calm when she told others about it. The horse had been sick for several weeks, and all of her friends were asking about him, so she had to repeat it several times.

No one wants to face a day like hers, but it is nice to know that Bach flower essences offer help for stressful situations. My friend is very grateful that she found Feel Bach! and that she had the right remedy on hand when the need was great.

Does "Modern Science" know all?

To "anonymous" who suggested we read the wikipedia entry: You are not alone in thinking that if modern science doesn't understand, can't analyze it, and can't turn it into a patented pharmaceutical product, then it doesn't work.

But... some of us realize that modern science doesn't know all. This universe holds miracles that the human mind cannot comprehend, and we don't need to comprehend.

Most medical doctors don't understand energy - the vital force that cannot be measured in their laboratories. That doesn't mean it doesn't exist - merely that they don't understand it and can't control it.

Those of us who use Bach Flower Remedies can attest to their effectiveness. But then the "unbiased" writer on Wikipedia says its merely a placebo effect.

Does my dog know that? Does he watch me put "Home Alone" in his water dish the night before he's going to have to spend the day alone and think "OK, I have these flower essences and they're going to help me get through tomorrow." I don't think so.

Nor do the dogs and cats in shelters who are soothed and comforted by Feel5ive know why it just became easier to be in a strange and terrifying place.

The fact is, some of us are tuned in to nature and the wonders she provides. Others rely purely on medical science and pharmaceuticals, with all of their horrifying side effects.

We each have a choice, and my personal choice is nature. I use Bach Flower Essences from Feel Bach - and I feel good.

Is your career stalled? Let Bach flowers help

Often the reasons for a stalled career come from within - and that's good news. It means you have the ability to change the situation.

Here are just a few reasons why people don't advance in the workplace:

Not a team player
Poor "people skills"
Not open to new methods / ideas
Doesn't contribute new ideas
Lets others take all the credit

Can you see that two completely different personality traits could be causing you to behave in ways that are holding you back?

One set of problems suggests a person who may be unable to recognize other people's contribution, who needs to dominate, or who needs to be right.

The other set indicates a lack of self confidence, thus a fear of change, a fear of being ridiculed, and probably a fear of losing employment altogether. This person may try so hard to blend into the background at work that no one even notices them, but if they do, they will recognize the fear.

Luckily, there's a Bach Flower remedy to alleviate each of those problems, no matter what energy imbalance has caused them.

We may tend to believe that our energy imbalances are the result of today's high pressure world, and that they're something new. But its been almost 75 years since Doctor Bach realized that energy imbalance was at the root of most personality problems. When he perfected his method of capturing the Bach flower essences, he used them to treat the same personality traits that hold us back today.

Unlike modern pharmaceuticals that seem to operate on a "one size fits all" theory, Bach Flowers go right to the root of each specific problem. Better yet, they do it without dangerous side effects.

Bach flowers can't help if your boss is determined to promote his or her nephew instead of you, but if you know it's your own personality traits that are holding you back, now is the best time to get started on change.

Feel Good! Feel Bach!

Heal damaged relationships with Bach flowers

You know how sometimes some small misunderstanding or disagreement can escalate - just get larger and larger until you find yourself in a place you don't want to be?

It could be with a child, a spouse, or even a parent. One of you becomes angry, the other reacts with more anger, and it just keeps going back and forth.

Often by the time you're feeling really distressed you can't sit down with the other person and talk it out, but you can get your own feelings back under control so that your own reactions change - and that will often cause a change in the other person.

The first thing you need to do is really examine your own feelings. First look at yourself as you think others might be seeing you. Do they see a person who is controlling, one who can't let anyone else be right, or maybe one who is afraid of change? Then think about what feelings you have that are contributing to that image.

Go to the questionnaire at FeelBach and be completely honest filling it out - even if it feels painful to face truths about your own behavior. Remember, this isn't being broadcast to the world - this is you talking with you.

When you see what blend is recommended for you, take a look at the individual essences and read what they'll do for you.

Then, if you're committed to healing the relationship, get your blend and let it begin working on your energies - so the next time you feel attacked by that other person you can respond from a better place. You should soon see that your changed reactions will cause a better reaction from them - and it should get better and better until your relationship is back on a track of love and understanding.

Relationships with those we love are too precious to let them fall by the wayside when there are simple ways to save them.

Yours for joy,
