Stuck in the 50's?

Do you know someone who seems "stuck" in the 50's - or the 60's, 70's, or 80's?

Maybe it's you - unable or unwilling to fully accept the present, and longing to go back to the past. It may be a sign of a Honeysuckle personality - and living in its negative state.

It may be regret over growing older, unable to accept the loss of youth. I think of a woman I know who persists in going out for the evening in her young daughter's clothing - which looks fine on a teen, but not so fine on a woman in her 40's.

It may be regret over actions taken - or not taken - and a yearning to go back and do it over. Or it may simply be a strong aversion to change of any kind.

Whatever the reason, the negative Honeysuckle state prevents the sufferer from experiencing the joys and opportunities of his or her present life.

After treatment, the Honeysuckle personality will remember and learn from the past, and may even honor it. But he or she will no longer be tied to it, unable to enjoy the present.

As with all the Bach Flower Remedies, Honeysuckle aids in re-balancing energies and helping the person connect and by guided by his or her higher self.

Japan Now in a Negative Rock Rose State

The Rock Rose state has been described as "A punch in the stomach." And how much harder could a punch be than to be living with the turmoil and devastation in Japan right now?

A person in the rock rose state is under extreme mental or physical threat - usually as the result of a crisis they cannot control. Even those whose families have been found safe and whose homes and businesses have not been destroyed are living with the threat of a nuclear disaster.

Our hearts to out Japanese citizens - and to those in the U.S. who are consumed by the fear that a nuclear meltdown in Japan will cause radiation illness here.

They would all be better able to cope with use of the Bach Flower Essence Rock Rose.

For most of us, the Rock Rose state is temporary and comes about as the result of an accident or an illness. It may manifest after a "near miss" accident when a person sees how close they came to death. It may manifest when a loved one is diagnosed with a serious illness. It could manifest during a hurricane or other potentially life-threatening storm.

In every case, the symptom is fear - whether or not that fear is founded in fact.

For example, a child who wakes from a bad dream and cannot be comforted - or the parent whose teen-age child is two hours late returning home from an evening out.

The Bach Flower Essence Rock Rose brings the personality back into alignment with the higher self and alleviates the heart-stopping panic.

Visit Flower Bach to learn more about the Rock Rose personality, and how Bach Flower Essences can help you deal with the crisis situations in your own life.

And if you're not sure that Rock Rose is the Bach Flower Remedy for you, come to Feel Bach! and take the questionnaire...

When Emotional Turmoil Manifests as Physical Pain

Bach Flower Remedies work by re-balancing energies. Their purpose is to re-connect body and spirit. And yet, they relieve pain. How can that be?

It can be because the connection between mind, spirit, and body is closer than many doctors would have you believe. Mental and emotional anguish can and do cause physical pain, and sometimes the person being affected doesn’t even realize the source of that physical pain.

That’s why the flower essence Sweet Chestnut can often relieve chronic pain.

Sweet Chestnut is a Bach Flower Essence used when a person has given up hope. When they feel that nothing can resolve their problems, and they have nothing good to look forward to.

This can be an outward, all-encompassing state, or it can relate to a specific situation that the sufferer may have buried deep in their subconscious.

Dr Edward Bach said that Sweet Chestnut was…"For those moments which happen to some people when the anguish is so great as to seem to be unbearable. When the mind or body feels as if it had borne to the uttermost limit of its endurance, and that now it must give way. When it seems there is nothing but destruction and annihilation left to face."

For many, that anguish manifests itself in physical pain – and that may be good news for some. When medical doctors can’t find and cure the cause of chronic pain, Bach Flower Essences offer new hope in the form of Sweet Chestnut.

When pain is caused by a spiritual or emotional turmoil, Sweet Chestnut can be taken internally or used in Floral Acupuncture – applied directly to the painful area.

Bach Flower Essences - Working Even When You Don't Believe

There are those who feel so hopeless and helpless that they don't believe that anything can help them - not Bach Flower Essences nor any other treatment.

In Dr. Edward Bach's words, they suffer from "Very great hopelessness, they have given up belief that more can be done for them. Under persuasion or to please others they may try different treatments, at the same time assuring those around that there is so little hope of relief."

Fortunately, Bach Flower Remedies don't rely on belief to work their wonders. So those who try the Flower Essence Gorse just to please their loved ones can find relief from hopelessness even though they belief that relief does not exist.

After treatment with Gorse, this personality has new found confidence to face life with feelings of hope and positive expectations.

Often, those suffering from a negative Gorse state are ill in both body and spirit, and as a result, suffer from chronic illnesses. Fortunately, as with many Bach Flower Essences, treating the spirit with Gorse allows the body to heal as well.

Learn more about this healing flower essence at www.bachflower.org.

If you're not sure this is the remedy for you or if you may need treatment for a combination of problems, come to FeelBach! to take the questionnaire and see which of Dr. Bach's flower essences will help you most.
