    weakened greatly in her pelvic region Rachel disclosed that she had many reasons to disown this part of her body that there may have been past sexual abuse and that there was certainly abusive lack of self respect during her twenties which included a lot of sexual promiscuity We agreed that the next cycle of flowers should be formulated to look deeply into her past and to continue working on warmth and embodiment Second Cycle Walnut Arnica Rosemary Mariposa Lily Black Eyed Susan and Golden Ear Drops The Walnut flower essence was retained in the formula for containment and protection and to help break old family behavior patterns Arnica was continued to loosen prior trauma and entrenched energy patterns Black Eyed Susan and Golden Ear Drops were added to begin to stir childhood memories including the possibility of childhood trauma or abuse that Rachel was blocking We tested Rosemary for embodiment and to help bring needed warmth to Rachel s cool demeanor While Rachel held Rosemary I observed her aura and it was evident to both of us that Rosemary was a real winner She immediately began to glow all over and look more relaxed and literally more beautiful Rachel said she had an immediate feeling of loveliness as she held Rosemary Mariposa Lily was checked again in Rachel s aura Unlike the first time we tested Mariposa Lily Rachel was much more able to hold the grief it brought to the surface During her first energetic encounter with this flower Rachel physically collapsed in her chair with grief This time she softened and looked very sad but felt she could journey forward and reap the eventual healing that Mariposa Lily had to offer Walnut Arnica Rosemary Mariposa Lily Black Eyed Susan Golden Ear Drops After taking this cycle of essences for a month Rachel reported a significant shift in her marriage We both felt the flowers were allowing her to more fully express her core identity although this awareness triggered a strong negative reaction from her husband The cathartic flowers in this cycle didn t appear to be overly strong for Rachel She mostly felt sad and discouraged about her marriage and wanted her next set of flowers to meet her where she was in the moment Third Cycle Walnut Yarrow Mariposa Lily Yerba Santa and Gorse Walnut was becoming a real flower of choice for Rachel she felt it really helped her to stay on track It continued to provide a bright focus in Rachel s eye area whenever it was tested I returned Yarrow to her formula based solely on how it looked when she held it It enhanced the size of her aura and firmed the edges To continue to gently heal grief and sadness we retained Mariposa Lily and added Yerba Santa Yerba Santa had been considered a good candidate all along for Rachel because she originally presented with a chronic cough and also had a slightly collapsed look in her upper body posture However

  • Two Young Women Speak About Their Use of Flower Essences
    in endless and sacred ways From Leah Ever since I have started taking flower essences I have loved them They have aided in discovering parts of myself that I thought I had lost parts of myself that I didn t know I had And they have given me a greater connection to the plant world grounding me to my life experience They have let me explore myself and assisted in the exploration without their own agenda They listened to me and I still pray to them for guidance even when I am not on them A pattern I noticed with myself during each round of essences was that a point of falling apart came when I was so immersed with emotions memories and thoughts that I forgot I was taking essences That point was the center of the chaos the center of the pain and turmoil preventing me from the life I want At that point a few days later I was reminded of the essences and to be gentle So then I took one step at a time in surrender and rediscovered my true self This is also when I began to identify each essence within the blend and the different impacts it was having on me Times were still difficult and painful but I had a stronger sense of myself and a sense of release It is like the essences compound together until the pressure cannot be sustained any longer and it bursts The aftermath of that is the rebuilding and rediscovering of my true self It is very powerful There are a few essences that I feel especially strong about Corn Lily I felt full of life empowered grounded and centered There was a mothering feeling as well I felt as if my life was radiating from

  • Emotional Detoxification Part 3
    awareness As we witness these parts of ourselves we have the opportunity to understand to redeem and to cleanse these emotions 12 With flower essences we heal from the inside out How do we know if we re toxic either physically or emotionally I think we should assume that we all are says Kaminski The question is this do we have ways of efficiently recycling that toxicity processing it the way the liver handles toxins What kind of soul apparatus do we have that helps us deal with toxicity You can t medicate away the pain of the soul with psychiatric drugs We need to be involved in creating in the soul those structures and processes analogous to the liver that enable us to process emotional toxicity With flower essences you actually flood the body with a positive medicine with positive emotional archetypes that shift the cellular structure in a different direction Impatiens In other words says Kaminski toxicity is a condition we are bound to encounter on the emotional level so we need to develop ways to process it Even better we need to process it in such a way that in the end we have gained in consciousness We are more aware of ourselves of our emotional totality This way Kaminski says emotional detoxification through flower remedies can lead to more consciousness She adds that flower essence therapy is a cutting edge vanguard medicine that is trying to build a bridge between psyche and soma or the body Here s an example from Kaminski s case files that illustrates these points She consulted with a fifty eight year old business executive who had sustained a heart attack He had tremendous stress in his life and it seemed his primary way of relating to the world was through hostility He was in advertising a highly competitive industry and his job description was virtually to walk all over everybody else to triumph win the client do the best make the most amount of money and the usual ultra Type A personality behaviors Naturally he had high blood pressure as well as a weakened heart after the attack When he came to Kaminski he had already started a nutritional therapy regimen and meditation She started him on four flower essences specific to his condition of stress hostility and a rigidified heart using Impatiens Zinnia Borage and Holly Zinnia In terms of its effect on human emotions the flower Impatiens is aptly named it dissolves impatience This man was always snapping his fingers tapping his fingers expressing his impatience says Kaminski The impatience was everywhere in him the need to drive fast to be somewhere in a hurry to get things done in a hurry Individuals who need Impatiens find it difficult to be within the flow of time their tendency is to rush ahead of experience comments Kaminski in her masterwork on flower essence prescribing Flower Essence Repertory cowritten with husband Richard Katz 13 They have too much fiery force and
