It's a New Year! A time when many of us review our lives and make resolutions for personal growth. Flower Essences are wonderful, inexpensive & transformative tools which can add gentle support in your personal evolution. Flower essences are botanical tinctures which are made by solarizing the blooms in spring water. They were used in several ancient cultures and revived and refined in modern times by London physician Edward Bach. It has long been a tradition of shamans, healers and root workers to spend time and get to know the plants that they use and prescribe for others. 

Not only the physical properties of the plant are important, but also by getting to know the more subtle "personalities" of each though sitting with them and listening to them in dreams, one can form a relationship. After all, they are living beings and each have their own intrinsic natures. They are sensitive to their environment and anyone who has ever seen a pine grow outward towards the sun or a Venus flytrap capture its prey knows that as much as we chop and chew plants as though they do not have feelings - that they do sense subtle energies and perhaps in unique ways we do not yet fully understand. How heartwarming it is to get a bouquet of flowers as a gift! Not only as a romantic token, but it is a living armful of beauty and potential. When flowers and plants are nearby it feels as though they are nurturing us, as silent shamans connecting us to the powers of sunlight and earth. And to strengths within ourselves.

It is in this spirit that the flower essences hold their magic. They like us, are adapting and surviving on this Earth each in their own ways. Bach and others who cultivate this modality have gotten to understand each flower and it’s subtle character as how it relates to our emotional experiences. So I find that when taking them, it’s as though I am adding the flower’s collective unconscious of betterment and survival to that of my own. It becomes as if I am walking through the same rough challenges in life only with a guide. As a skeptic, one might not feel certain at first that guide is really there. However, once you’ve experienced new ideas pop into your mind and uncharacteristic shifts in your emotions that seem at once so entirely natural to you, yet in the manner in which you were so longing and aspiring towards, it is an incredible new feeling that you cannot ignore.

New Year’s resolutions tend to be BIG ones, things we feel stuck on that we know are key to our betterment. The great thing about flower essences is that they work best on those main themes for our soul, the things we just can’t ignore at this point because somewhere in us we know that we must work though these challenges in order to grow on our path. So no matter what your resolution is, look deep into it to discover how flowers can assist you.

Some of the most common resolutions are fitness goals; losing weight, adherence to a schedule at the gym, starting a new diet.  And there are many coaches and doctors that can help you reach these goals on a physical level. But your body won’t do any of these things without you changing your habits. And there are many ways that flowers can make the process feel more easy and natural for you.

Perhaps you feel disconnected from your body which makes it easy to over eat, try Rosemary.

Sluggish feeling?  Peppermint would be a good remedy for you.

Feeling tired or burned out with little energy to get to the gym?  Olive can help. 
 
If you rarely have time to care for yourself because you are so busy caring for others,  Oak and Elm will encourage you to you feel better about caring for your own needs.

Do you lack support in social situations? Consider Cerato to help boost your inner confidence so you feel great about staying on your diet of choice when everyone is indulging.

And if you have troubles sleeping or relaxing due to anxiety, Mimulus is just one remedy that can support your overall heath.

There are several handy guides to assist you when picking your remedy or remedy combination such as this one from The Flower Essence Society.  I encourage you to take enough time with your selection so that you understand the relationship between the flower and yourself. Explore the options in the guides and then look at pictures of the flowers, know where they grow and what about their character is important. Feel that you resonate well with your choice. These remedies are not quick fix drops, you are actually inviting that plant to spend time with you and create a beautiful world through you.

Best wishes in your journeys with your flower guides. And let us know the details of your journey in the comments below.  And enjoy a very happy & healthy New Year!

Love & Luck,
Kari

The following time I learn a weblog, I hope that it doesnt disappoint me as a lot as this one. I mean, I know it was my choice to read, however I really thought youd have something interesting to say. All I hear is a bunch of whining about one thing that you may fix if you werent too busy in search of attention.

I love flowers. Seeing flowers make me happy and refreshed. My most love and favorite is tulip. I love its color, very uplifting. Speaking of tulip, I have read from a research that tulip bulbs can be used in place of onions for cooking. Wow, how interesting, isn't it?

They say that New Year is a great way to start a new life and a new beginning. My favorite flower would be sunflower. I just loved looking at them. Every time I looked at sunflowers, I feel like they are cheering me up and they're setting me to good mood. I actually have a small sunflower garden, I always wanted to make sure that they are clean and being taken care of really well. We all have different favorites, and each flower is beautiful on their own! Grab a snack and take a seat, then watch your beautiful garden swing in harmony.

New Year's is about changing ways. It is about how you would improve yourself and do things you have done before. I like the idea of challenging your readers to finally start what it is that they have been putting off for so long. Personally, I have been neglecting doing things that I should have finished way back then. I guess a part of me is afraid that it may turn out to be different than what I expected. Fear of failing is what it is. But I have been inspired by what you have shared so I will start doing things I am afraid of and just accept whatever the outcome may be. Happy New Year!

New Years are great because that is when people reflect on their lives and find ways to make a better version of themselves. I would like to comment on the aesthetics of your blog, the way you mixed the colors look great. It is also the first time I heard about the concept of Flower Essences. After learning about it, I think that it is really helpful and great. I am looking forward to reading more information about it. I hope that you will continue to write more informative articles in the future.

New Year means new life. We must have a new life by changing our styles of living, changing house decorations and changing habits. We must also set our New Year's Resolution. Let's drive away all the negatives in our body. Staying positive helps us to be successful for the entire year.

It has fully emerged to crown Singapore's southern shores and undoubtedly placed her on the global map of residential landmarks. I still scored the more points than I ever have in a season for GS. I think you would be hard pressed to find somebody with the same consistency I have had over the years so I am happy with that.

Thanks for your post. I’ve been thinking about writing a very comparable post over the last couple of weeks, I’ll probably keep it short and sweet and link to this instead if thats cool. Thanks.

When your website or blog goes live for the first time, it is exciting. That is until you realize no one but you and your.

I personally tend not to have new year resolutions. I think that setting such will ultimately lead to its downfall. We should set goals that we are to have in the middle of the year. At least, we should not give credence to new year resolutions. Most of the time, they will be forgotten and wasted.
