What are flower essences?
Flower essences are herbal infusions, mainly made from the flowering part of the plant, which uniquely address emotional and mental aspects of wellness. In most cultures throughout history, flowers have been used energetically for healing. In modern times the first 38 flower remedies were formulated by a British physician, Dr. Edward Bach, in the 1930's. I use the original Bach Flower Essences as well as over sixty Australian Bush Flower Essences which I find to be extremely effective, powerful yet gentle.
How do flower essences work?
Flower essences are energetic imprints of the life force of plants which interact with the subtle bodies of feelings within the human being. While they may also stimulate physical healing, they are used mainly to promote awareness and healing of emotional, mental and spiritual imbalances.
We can say that they work in a similar way to inspirational music or art, which carry meaning through the vehicle of sound or light, while the flower essences work through the medium of water.
The effect of these Essences is similar to that of meditation in that they enable the person to access the wisdom of their Higher Self. This releases negative beliefs held in the subconscious and allows the positive virtues of the Higher Self - love, joy, faith, courage etc. to flood their being. When this happens the negative beliefs and thoughts are dissolved, balance is restored and true healing occurs.
Your Flower Essences will be prescribed for what is going on for you at the time of consultation. As energy shifts, your prescription will also change.
“Flower essences are very effective in helping us to recognize and rid ourselves of limiting or destructive patterns of behaviour. The essences support us in extending our consciousness beyond its present state. They provide a language that helps us to understand our emotions and inner soul urgings.” - The Alchemy of the Desert
My logo is based on the Fringed violet which represents the energy I bring to my practice. That is, protection from external negative energies and to feel secure in a safe place. My clients often comment on how safe they feel in consultations and how much they love the feeling of calmness in the clinic.
