Did you know that there are 38 different flower remedies which were created by Dr Bach in the 1930’s? These remedies have been classified into seven groups and of course there is also Rescue Remedy. Today we will look at the remedies in the group for insufficient interest in present circumstances.
These times we are living in is causing all sorts of problems for us from dreaming about what was, all the way to what might be. There’s also apathy and descending into doom and gloom. As with the other remedies we’ve looked at, the remedies for insufficient interest in present circumstances can also be broken down, this time into seven different aspects. Let’s have a look at these individually and we can then think of which ones may have been needed most in recent months. Within this group are Clematis, Honeysuckle, Wild Rose, Olive, White Chestnut, Mustard and Chestnut Bud.
Clematis – key words here are dreamers, drowsy, absent-minded, accident-prone. By taking the remedy it brings us down to earth. It allows us to be in the here and now, essentially the only place that we can actually really be. It helps us be present moment.
Honeysuckle – key words here are living in memories, living in the past, regrets, missed opportunities. By taking the remedy it allows us to be involved in the present moment. We can let go of the past and become involved in the present, as that is all we actually have.
Wild Rose – key words for this remedy are lack of interest, resignation, no love or point in life, apathy. By taking this remedy you will find your spirit of joy and adventure. Your energy will be restored and you will start to take an interest again in what is going on around you.
Olive – key words here are exhausted, no more strength, a need for physical and mental renewal. By taking the remedy it allows us to feel rested and supported. It is restorative and helps you get your strength back by allowing for rest and support.
White Chestnut – key words are unresolved, circling thoughts, can’t stop thinking about something, obsessing about something. It can be referred to as the mental stress remedy. When we take this remedy, we have a calm and clear mind. We no longer feel the need to continually think about something.
Mustard – key words are gloom that suddenly clouds us for no apparent reason. It is utter depression and you can’t do anything about it. It’s deep anger. When we take this remedy, we can lift the black clouds and have clarity.
Chestnut Bud – key words are failing to learn from life, repeating mistakes, a lack of observation. There is an inability to see our own patterns in life. When we take this remedy, we learn from life, learn from experience and integrate our lessons. We are able to release our patterns and integrate the learning process.
As we can see, there are several different feelings of insufficient interest in present circumstances. Do you see yourself in any of these, and have you experienced any of these states in the last few months?
As we’ve discussed previously, these remedies work very subtly, but strongly on our emotional states and thought patterns. The idea of them is to create balance within your emotional self and your behaviours. However, there is one very important thing to note, brandy is used as a preserver of the remedies, and therefore if you have an issue with alcohol, then please do not take the original remedies, look for the alcohol-free remedies which are made with glycerine.
The remedies are effectively an expression, a memory of a flower and works in a similar way to that of homeopathy. There are two methods for extracting the essence of the flower. The first method is that flowers are floated in pure water for a number of hours in the sunshine, and then the resulting water is poured into a sterile bottle and then an amount of brandy is added as the preservative. The second method is used for the woodier plants, where the flowers and some twigs are placed into a saucepan and boiled, then simmered for half an hour. The pan is then taken outside to cool down completely. Again, the resulting liquid is poured into a sterile bottle and then an amount of brandy is added as the preservative.
We can buy the bottles of individual remedies from a pharmacy or direct from one of the websites that sells the remedies made in the traditional way, such a Bach, Healing Herbs, Ainsworth or Creature Comforters. When we need to take the remedies, simply place two drops of the tincture into a glass of water and sip slowly.
However, usually when we need remedies, we need more than one, sometimes three or four. This is where I come in and can listen to what is happening in your life and understand which remedies would be good for you at that particular time. I can then make up a bottle of remedy specifically for you for the immediate issues at hand.
The individual uncertainty remedies can help with a variety of things. Discover more about remedies in this group and other flower remedies.
