Why flower essences? First, what is a flower essence? It is the captured living essence of a flower. It is the vibration of the flower and it’s consciousness. With this in mind you can intuit that something different is going on in the use of flower essences than we are used to in the ordinary phenomenal world. Yes, that is true. Flower essences are a vibrational healing system discovered by Dr. Edward Bach in the early part of the 20th Century. I encourage you to go to the resources section of this blog and click on Bach Centre for more background information on the subject.
The field of vibrational healing is the healing system of the future which is Now.
Flower essences are considered a complementary therapy to homeopathy and other natural healing remedies including spiritual healing. Spiritual healing starts with the premise that we are connected to a loving source, or creator which has the quality of well-being, hence well-being is our own core state of being. It is not too far a leap from this knowingness to the idea that a flower could help us, since God, good is everywhere present.
Remember, in our spiritual (metaphysical practice) we always begin with love. We are love and have God within us.
When we start there. receiving the bond between the plant and human realms is easy to believe. Just as every human is unique with certain qualities so are flowers unique. They have a very high ethereal quality and vibration.
Love is inclusive. When we include and accept flowers into our consciousness as beings of light we can begin to make the evolutionary consciousness leaps that expands our cosmology and world view to allow for God, good to be everywhere present and in expressions that are helpful and good. Flowers live for appreciation and are teaching us the power of appreciation to help us in every aspect of our lives. I have loved to watch the improvement, in health, prosperity, and a sense of caring, of impoverished inner cities with the advent of community gardens. When a plant or flower or tree is present and alive an area is uplifted. As more people join together in making the gardens their lives begin to be uplifted also.
It is not much of a stretch for most people to believe in “flower power” as gardening is the number one most popular hobby in the United States.
When we open to the possibility of this Universe being extremely friendly with an abundance of helpers at so many levels and forms we can begin to open to our good as Divine children.
As Dr. Bach discovered, “Quite simply put, flowers heal.”
