  • The Role of Flower Essence Therapy Beyond Traditional Psychotherapy
    open to the essences and I sent home a questionnaire and literature about them he continued I told her to see which ones she thought might apply to herself I feel it is important that the patient is involved I don t just listen and then recommend the essences I really feel that the flower essences are a self healing tool Patients can select essences which they feel might help them with the practitioner offering guidance Ms S identified Larch Centaury and Cerato Dr Masi felt Ms S had made a good initial selection given her dynamics Centaury addressed the hostess role and difficulty in asserting her own needs Larch for the negative harsh self appraisal and Cerato was indicated to aid in helping her to trust her judgment regarding situations in which to self assert Dr Masi believes a client should prepare one s own dosage bottles when possible This was the case with Ms S She made her dosage bottle preparations with spring water adding three drops of each essence then adding a preservative She was instructed to take them four times per day especially upon rising and before going to bed Ms S noticed an immediate reaction to the essences Negative ideas and feelings were still there but they felt much less intense and she was not quite as overwhelmed by them he said Ms S said she felt a little fuzziness or cloudiness in her thinking I suggested she cut back on her dose After that I noticed she was more assertive in our sessions She was able to speak up for herself in her work situation in an assertive way which she was unable to do before This showed us she was moving out of the hostess position She felt she was rising above her no hope feelings Ms S said medications usually made her feel more defective and worse but the essences made her feel like she was really participating in the therapy She also began to speak up about a personal event that she had kept hidden all her life which left her feeling shamed and defective Ms S also reported when she forgot to take her essences she seemed to notice a difference of slipping back or a dark cloud over her Dr Masi suggested she use Mustard They also have discussed adding Crab Apple for the feelings of being defective and ashamed of the self While it pleasantly surprised both Dr Masi and Ms S to see such immediate positive effects from flower essences this is only the beginning of the transformational process Deeper issues are likely to emerge as we go deeper into the psyche Other cases do not show such immediate results The symptoms and underlying conflicts for many clients are much more complex Dr Masi said Treating an Adolescent Boy for Panic Disorder He cited the case of R a 14 year old male who initially came to Dr Masi with panic disorder R exhibited heart palpitations dizziness

  • Flower Essences and the Reiki Stream
    between one s hands and run the Reiki Stream as a thank you to the flowers as well as to enhance the life force within the imprint pattern of the essence Simply put this means that all levels of effectiveness and traits contained within the flower essence are animated with vital force as an autonomous life form Over the course of my usage with this blend of healing therapies there have consistently been before and after distinctions in the session experience Some are very subtle and detectable by clients while others are only momentarily detectable by the changes in the Reiki Stream flowing through my hands I had a 17 year old young man who was playing high school football Three days before the playoffs Tuesday he injured his ankle during practice Hoping he would be able to play in the game that Friday his mother a Reiki student made an appointment for him to see me that same evening When he arrived I asked him to remove his shoe and sock something unusual for Reiki work so I could directly apply drops of Star of Bethlehem for trauma Five Flower Formula to ensure vitality in the area and Self Heal to accelerate healing Along with direct topical application I also puts drops of those flower essences into my palms I applied three special Reiki techniques along with additional Reiki on the injured ankle Before leaving I gave him some Star of Bethlehem and suggested he apply the remedy to his ankle 4 times a day especially after getting out of any water I also suggested an additional Reiki session in two days Upon arising the next morning much of the swelling was gone though there was some pain and he could walk without his cane At school that afternoon he soaked his ankle in a whirlpool When he arrived Thursday evening I repeated the same procedures as the prior session and sent him on his way On Friday he was walking pain free and with ankle taped he played in the entire game that night which his team won much to everyone s delight Whether or not such results can be pinned down in a linear format however is questionable since awareness is also governed by an individual s sensitivity to energy Nonetheless I continue to use flower essences when so compelled Session Usage I usually put 2 to 4 drops of an essence on my hands and rub them together to distribute the flower essence pattern This also decreases the liquid form at the same time The pattern of the flower essences is retained on the hands for a period of time The Reiki Stream emphasizes whatever attributes and correlated healing specialties are pertinent to the client in priority item order while orchestrating the process for maximum impact How long one can distinctly perceive a flower essence s influence varies and there is no consistency in one case to another However because the flower essence patterns seem to

  • Healing Soul and Spirit with Flower Essences
    his prestige was really just symbolic with very little substance to it He actually was faking his attitudes and sensibilities to get along in the world of wealth He was acting wealthy outwardly while carrying an inner life of lies and half truths This discovery shocked and devastated her In her family once one made a mistake you punished them cut them off condemned them and never hear from them again Hers were very rigid upper middle class professional parents with absolutely no subtlety about anything When she began to learn of some of the incredible fabrications in her husband s life we started her very quickly with the flower essences Her first inclination was to tell everyone about it and divorce him But it was such a premature decision to make I wanted her to wait for the dust to clear and not just act out of impulse in the way she had been trained by her upbringing MERCEDES This is a very honest and judgmental woman and she wanted to see me At the beginning she was very panicky Five Flower Formula helped Then she went through other transitions such as depression inner weakness We gave her a combination of Gentian Larch Elm and Walnut Later she said she was putting on fronts and we added Agrimony to the combination She is a very fearful person who often feels her safety at risk but she never had a chance to talk about her fears and confront them We gave her a combination of Mimulus Gentian Star of Bethlehem and Angelica which helped her greatly Later when she saw her marriage on the rocks and other personal issues she herself chose Yerba Santa Love Lies Bleeding Borage and Walnut With people who are not too spiritual I have a tendency of putting in a drop of the Angelica and I do that with a lot of faith and have had great success Presently she is dealing with the issues of fear and anger She mentioned that her anger comes from a fear of death because she sees a lot of death where she works For these issues she chose Aspen Crysthanthemum Beech Angel s Trumpet and Angelica She has made great progress BERNADETTE I see both her and her husband They are still married and are communicating much more honestly and on a much higher level than ever before The essences have definitely helped them confront and deal with their major issues Deep issues I think they will end up having a very strong marriage They aren t out of the woods yet But they are spending quality time together making good use of the spiritual outlets available to them such as meditation and prayer FES Is this what you mean by applying a more eclectic or holistic approach to psychodynamics BERNADETTE Somebody who does strict psychodynamic work would never suggest meditation or centering exercises or flower essences FES And you feel the flower essences provide a positive influence

    Wyman also uses the Self Heal Creme with these clients The arthritis clients I work on find it extremely helpful I have them put a few drops of an essence in the cream and rub it into the joints Any time there is a need for skin involvement with an energy disturbance I always use Self Heal Creme He notes that clients who are taking anti depressant drugs do not seem to receive the positive effects of flower essences I have a few patients who are on fairly high doses of anti depressants who have been unable to perceive much effect from essences I think the drugs have a blanketing effect which profoundly blocks the energy movements Editor s note there are other contradictory points of view please see an interview with Eloïse Watt regarding her battle with chronic depression and the first results of the FES Depression Study The first flower essence Wyman used topically was Agrimony for chronic TMJ He put a few drops on the TMJ area and the next day the client threw away the Bite Guard she had been using for 20 years It made sense her TMJ would be helped by Agrimony because of the profile of the essence someone who is always smiling trying to show a cheerful side of themselves but not willing to show any other feelings If one is smiling all the time the jaw would be the place where tension would manifest itself Wyman said He often sends clients home with an essence to continue the treatment orally He calls Star of Bethlehem an astonishing remedy for topical application because it releases cellular memory Much of what happens occurs physically and then is kept in the memory We hold so much shock in our bodies from experiences and it

  • Transformational Medicine and Flower Essence Therapy
    hospitals A lot of what regular medicine is doing has no research to back it up at all A huge amount of it One of my roommates from medical school along with one of the most respected teachers at Duke Medical School wanted to do a project to investigate all of the many many customary procedures and approaches and therapies used in conventional medicine that have never been researched to see if they really work Everyone agrees that this is something that needs to be done But no one wanted to fund this project He couldn t raise money for it and he finally had to give up on the project So the very amusing and ironic thing is that a lot of what s going on in hospitals and in conventional medicine is totally unproven whereas the alternative practitioners have had to get on the ball and prove what they re doing The truth is not at all what the widely held perception is In fact holistic medicine is on a pretty firm basis now and getting much more solid all the time whereas conventional medicine is on some pretty thin ice in a lot of places LINDA WOODS I wanted to talk to you about something that s very intriguing to me and that s flower essences and homeopathy They re both based on the principle of vibrational medicine and in your book you say they convey complex informational patterns directly from nature that can be used by the human system to reprogram the body and the mind That is fascinating DR BALLENTINE We can t really ignore the fact that living matter is filled with information It s an incredible storage medium for information In fact I m told that researchers in the area of computers the forward looking people in Silicon Valley are really looking toward abandoning silicon as a storage medium for computer microprocessors and are thinking of moving toward living protoplasm bacterial cultures and so forth because they can hold such an incredibly larger amount of information You see all living matter is an infinite library of information about life and how to live on this planet And we ve barely entertained the possibility of how to harness this information Natural medicinals have been doing it for a long time but it wasn t referred to in these terms Now we re beginning to realize how sophisticated these ancient techniques are They re not just superstition They re really quite elegant and quite advanced LINDA WOODS I am so impressed with your book Radical Healing It has almost everything in it you ever wanted to know about healing And not only that but how to integrate it into your life We were talking before about flower essences and one of the wake up calls you had regarding your son can you talk about that I want to hear about your son and his experience with Goldenrod I thought that was very interesting DR BALLENTINE
