Flower Essences and their Range of Effects
Each of the many flower essences has different parameters in which it is operating. All ingested substances have these kinds of parameters. For example, there are people that are very responsive to aspirin and there are other people that are very unresponsive to aspirin. There is a certain amount of variation that can be considered such as: body weight, gender, age, and other factors. There is also a certain amount of variation that cannot be understood at the present time. But from what we know about aspirin and the parameters of aspirin, it is likely to reduce inflammation, fever and pain. These are some generally accepted parameters of aspirin. Some people might need four times the standard dose, while other people might need half the standard dose. There are also going to be a number of people that experience additional "side-effects" from the aspirin such as stomach discomfort and a whole wide range of possibilities. An example of what is outside the generally accepted parameters of what aspirin can do: we would all be very surprised if someone were to take some aspirin and then their hair spontaneously caught on fire. This would take us all by surprise.
In the same way if we consider the visual experience of a sunset, there is a wide range of experiences that we might expect people to have ranging from relaxation to joy to nostalgia, a sense of peace, calm or tranquility. There is going to be a lot of variation within those parameters but we would all view it as a very strange thing, and indicative of some sort of imbalance, if someone were to watch a sunset and get very angry, agitated and mad at the sunset. This would be outside the generally expected parameters.
In a similar way different flower essences have parameters that impact in ways that are fairly predictable. There is variation and because flower essences are so gentle and act more as suggestions than they do as forcible commands, like a pharmaceutical, there is a considerable amount of difference in terms of how people respond. However, if someone were to see roses or have the experience of the magnetic signature of a rose there are generally understood parameters by which people would respond. When people respond outside the parameters of a given set of flower essences this would be the same as someone taking aspirin and their hair lighting on fire. This would be a very strange situation.
These ideas are pertinent for several reasons. When you understand how vibrational remedies in general and flower essences in particular work, you begin to understand that you are dealing with subtle phenomena. Subtle does not mean weak, nondescript, or nondistinct - it simply means difficult to detect. An artist develops an eye for the subtle color and texture variations and a musician develops an ear for subtle audio variations. Over a period of time of working with flower essences, one can develop a subtle appreciation for the slight variations among different magnetic signatures and the corresponding changes in the nervous system that they can engender. It is oftentimes these subtle changes that generate a tremendous effect over a period of time. The process is one of making micro-changes and opening up and relaxing very small pathways proximal to the core operating system of the body. The idea is that the aggregation of many, many small changes, small openings, small relaxations, can actually build up a very profound change in both the physiology and the conscious daily experience of the world.
