Choosing the Right Flower Essence Remedy
Historically choosing the right remedy with flower essences or choosing the right flower has been a very difficult and esoteric process. When Dr. Edward Bach described the effects of the different flower essences he was using, he associated the dissolution of psychological and emotional stress patterns with the different flowers. These associations then became the determining factors for how to choose the appropriate flower essence remedy.
The first difficulty with choosing from among different flower essences by these associations is their ambiguity. The second and perhaps far more significant difficulty is that by their nature these patterns are subconscious and or unconscious. It is the withdrawal of consciousness from sensory experience that generates the existence of the stress pattern in the first place. If unconsciousness of a psychological or emotional pattern is its signifier, then it is highly unlikely that a given individual would have the wherewithal to select the appropriate remedy to bring such an unconscious pattern of stress into their consciousness to be resolved. This is just one of the many differences that sets apart Siddatech flower essences.
Siddatech flower essences are designated by the manifestations of the various patterns of stress that they resolve. This brings us to the ancient Chinese proverb, tong zi bu tong - where there is free flow, there is no pain. By understanding this, we can come to understand that the place in an individual’s life where there is a contraction of awareness or a withdrawal of consciousness away from sensory input is the place where an individual has blocked their own flow and thus has generated either present or future pain as a necessary result.
This pain, either present in the form of symptoms or future in the form of a potential health crisis, can be resolved by restoring the flow of conscious awareness to the area of previous withdrawal. Siddatech flower essences have therefore been formulated by approaching various fields of symptom manifestation from multiple angles. In other words, the stress that impacts the lungs and other aspects of the breathing process is not of a simple and singular nature. Different kinds of stress can impact different stages in the breathing process, different tissues involved in respiration and can have radically different origins. Thus a Siddatech remedy such as Lung & Sinus is not a one-note tune devised as a one-size-fits-all bullet, but rather a symphonic arrangement of magnetic signatures that can resolve a wide range of stress that can impact the lungs.
By this method of clarifying the differences between remedies by the possible fields of symptom manifestations, we really hope to make the process of the selection of flower essences much more accessible. There are distinctions and we do delineate some of these in our Flower Essences Guide. By reading through some of the information on our website and through some of the frequently asked questions that are available, it should be fairly easy to select the right remedy. However, if you have any questions that have not been answered, we sincerely hope that you will contact us and ask away. We are always happy to help.
