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 loneliness.
Loneliness has hit many of us hard in the last few months, and there’s a distinct difference between being alone and being lonely, although the truth is, we are never alone. As with the other remedies we’ve looked at, the remedies for loneliness can also be broken down, this time into three 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 Water Violet, Impatiens and Heather.
Water Violet – key words here are withdrawn, reserved, aloof, proud, self-reliant, quiet grief. This person can come across as superior; they may be difficult to approach as they can push people away, which leads to loneliness. By taking the remedy it brings us humility and wisdom. It allows for peace and calm, wisdom in service. They are willing to offer advice without becoming personally involved in the situation.
Impatiens – key words here are irritated by constraints, quick, tense, impatient. When dealing with others, they can be irritated by those needing time to organise thoughts and will finish sentences for you. They are usually intelligent beings. By taking the remedy it allows for patience and gentleness. There is less haste in thought and action and more patience, tolerance towards others and a more relaxed feeling.
Heather – key words for this remedy are lonely and longing for company, talkative, overconcern with self. This person will talk to anyone willing to listen, obsessed with their own troubles. By taking this remedy you will find tranquillity and kinship with all life. Strength and confidence will be evident and there will be an ability to listen to others’ problems and enjoy partner discussion.
As we can see, there are several different feelings of loneliness. 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.
