Help For Emotional Health

  • Our primary motivation in everything we choose is the desire to feel good
  • Thus, emotion is the energy that fuels action in the body
  • It is the bridge between the mind and the body
  • When we have unresolved emotional wounds, we cannot translate our thoughts and goals into action
What is a Flower Essence?
  • Flower essences are vibrational (homeopathic like) remedies made from the flowers of plants
  • Most are made by soaking flowers in water in the sunlight, then preserving the water with brandy to make a mother tincture
  • The mother tincture is then diluted to create the final remedy for the client
How Do They Work?
  • Plants have to overcome challenges in their environment, just like we do
  • Plants, like people, have personalities which help them rise above these challenges
  • Associating with a person with positive personality traits can help you learn how to meet life’s challenges in a constructive way
  • A flower essence captures the “vibration” of the plant’s personality, which helps your own emotional energy “learn” how to acquire that same personality trait

Anger as a Positive Energy
  • Anger is the energy that pushes things away that we don’t want; things that hurt us
  • In the body, this equates to the processes of cleansing and immunity – how the body protects itself from infection and toxins
  • How we deal with anger affects both our eliminative systems and our immune function
Healthy Anger
  • Healthy anger allows us to “stand our ground,” to assert our right to our own life, liberty of choices and the control of our own property
  • No one has the moral right to deprive you of your right to be you, as long as you are not trespassing on the rights of others
  • Healthy anger allows you to say “no” to that which does not serve your best interests or would cause you physical or emotional harm
  • Healthy anger can identify exactly how your rights are being trespassed against and by whom
  • Healthy anger allows you to maintain SELFCONTROL
Vented Anger
  • Tissue gets “angry” when it is irritated, just like we do. It becomes red and inflamed. Fever and inflammation are signs the body is “fighting” something.
  • In the body this often goes with feeling more agitated, frustrated and easily irritated
  • When we vent anger, we try to use anger as a weapon to control others and deprive them of their rights to be who they are
  • Vented anger can manifest as violence, threats of violence, deception and stealth and emotional manipulation
  • Venting anger is always a sign of a lack of love and respect for others

  • Helps a person be more receptive to other people’s points of view and work for cooperation rather than competition
  • Promotes forgiveness, tolerance and acceptance of others, and open and loving communication
Suppressed Anger
  • When anger is suppressed, a person has a difficult time saying “no” to others. They sacrifice their own needs trying to please others and take care of them.
  • Suppressing anger causes you to lose your personal power and allows others to “leach” off of you, which ultimately drains your energy
  • This results in low energy, which manifests as discouragement, fatigue, loss of enthusiasm and even depression.

Desire (Love)
  • Just as our body contracts to push things away, it expands to let things in
  • When we “love” something, our blood vessels dilate to increase blood flow to the senses and skin
  • As a result our skin “glows,” our eyes “sparkle,” we are “warm” and open to embrace life
  • We also experience greater pleasure in our lives
  • Desire allows us to say “yes” to what is pleasurable and good for us, both physically and emotionally
  • This same energy allows us to more efficiently digest nutrients, pull oxygen into the body and provide oxygen and nutrients to the cells
Healthy Grief
  • When we lose something we “love,” we grieve
  • Grief is actually a form of shock. In shock, the blood retreats from the skin and moves into the internal organs, which creates a swelling sensation in our chest we call “heart break” because it feels like our heart is going to “burst” or “break”
  • Grief is more than crying, it is sobbing, wailing, moaning, sighing and even screaming. These actions forcefully redistribute blood to the surface of our body so we can experience pleasure again
  • Tears are a sign that something has touched our heart – either great joy or great sadness can bring tears
  • Healthy grief is actually an expression of love – of an open, vulnerable heart, capable of feeling love and connection
Vented Grief
  • When we vent grief, we place the responsibility for filling the loss we feel onto other people
  • We don’t want to feel and acknowledge the pain, so we seek sympathy from others as a “drug” to temporarily ease the grief
  • This can become habitual, so we create a “story” around our victimhood which we constantly tell, seeking sympathetic allies
  • We become “victims,” whining, complaining and manipulating others into feeling sorry for us.

  • Chrysanthemum – for fear of mortality and aging, helps a person identify with their spiritual, rather than physical nature and accept the temporal (i.e., temporary) nature of the physical world
  • Borage – for heavy-heartedness, promotes cheerful courage when facing adversity, encourages hope and optimism
  • Star Thistle – for basing one’s actions on a fear of lack, helps a person trust in the God and abundance

  • Also helpful for people who are “victims,” who complain a lot, blaming others for their lack of success and problems
  • Helps people find comfort, let go of the past and have hope and confidence to face the future
Suppressed Grief
  • Sometimes people decide that the pain of grief is a sign that love and vulnerability are dangerous. They close down their hearts to avoid feeling close to anything or anyone.
  • This causes them to fear love. They become “hard of heart” and lack empathy and compassion for others. A person with a closed heart can become inflexible, rigid and judgmental
  • Criminal behavior is an extreme example of what can happen when the heart hardens due to suppressed grief

  • Helps a person face their suppressed pain and grief and find healing
  • Helps them open up to love, warmth and vulnerability again
  • Increases compassion, empathy and trust in relationships
Vented Fear
  • When we vent fear, we look to others to tell us how to solve our problems, we aren’t just interested in exploring solutions, we’re literally giving away our power of choice to others, making them responsible for fixing our fears
  • Excessive worry is a sign of vented fear and blindly trusting “authority figures” are signs of vented fear
  • Physically, vented fear results in a lack of “backbone,” that is the ability to “stand up for oneself”
Fear and Equilibrium
  • Fear is the energy we feel when choices need to be made, that have the possibility for great reward and/or great pain
  • Fear strongly affects the systems that regulate body functions, such as the glandular system (particularly the adrenals and thyroid) and the nerves
  • Fear and excitement are extremely similar physiological responses; it is how the mind interprets the body’s response that makes the difference
  • When this energy of fear is channeled into constructive action through exercising courage, it builds excitement and self-confidence.

  • Helps people make their own decisions
  • Helps with the development of courage to act in the face of fear and self-confidence to pursue the goals and directions they desire in life
Suppressed Fear
  • When we suppress fear, we are suppressing an energy that is driving us to “do something”
  • This means we need to find something “to do” to channel this energy
  • Instead of making a choice to do something constructive, we chose to do something to distract us from our fear
  • We may eat, drink, take drugs, go shopping, watch TV, play on the computer, count bathroom tiles, horde stuff, engage in promiscuous sex, or engage in any other addictive, compulsive or self-defeating behavior.
