Have you ever visited or lived in a large city? One that’s so hard to drive in that everybody just takes public transportation? During rush hour the busses and subway cars are packed to the brim with strangers just trying to get home from work. Most of them keep to themselves, reading or listening to music, but there’s always a pack of rowdy high school kids, a homeless person asking you for money, a musician, or an activist making a speech close by.
After experiencing this every day for SIX YEARS, an hour to work and another one home, I’d had enough. I started just staying home when I could, working my entire life around avoiding the busses and trains during rush hour. I couldn’t stand for another human, especially a stranger, to sit or stand next to me, let alone try to talk to me or look at me.
Then I found flower essences.
Subtle herbal remedies that are taken under the tongue several times a day to shift your mental and emotional states. I started taking a formula to promote peace and calm, and in about a week I noticed that I could ride the subway again, without being bothered by all those extra people.
Flower essences work on a vibrational level. This is why they are able to affect the most subtle and least material aspect of you – your thoughts and emotions. It may sound like hocus pocus. I mean, how is it possible that some flower water placed under the tongue a few times a day could create a shift in the way you see the world?
Imagine yourself in this situation. You’re driving down the highway and someone cuts you off, endangering both his and your life. You were already having a terrible day before this happened, so you react pretty angrily, yelling obscenities and gripping the steering wheel with all your muscle tension. Just then, your FAVORITE song comes on the speakers – you know the one – it never fails to make you smile. Your hands soften a little, your chest opens up and you can breathe easier. By the time the chorus comes around you are singing along, and your mood has completely changed. All that from some vibrations that were coming out of your car speakers.
The right vibration at the right time can shift your whole perspective.
And this is the beauty and magic of flower essences. They don’t numb you out like an anti-depressant, and they don’t interfere with any medications you’re taking. Some remedies work immediately, like the song on the radio, and others build up slowly over the course of a few days, a week or a month. You may not even realize anything is happening until you look back on what life was like 3 weeks ago and notice that everything has shifted.
Flower essences can relieve anxiety and panic attacks, and can lift spirits when you’re feeling depressed. They soften impatience and frustration, they help you let go, they give you the strength to go on when you don’t think you can. All this and much, much more, just from a few drops under your tongue a few times a day.
