Flowers contain a wonderful energy and Dr. Bach discovered that this soft energy has a special power to heal people.
Dr. Bach was convinced that health was the result of a balance and emotional harmony. He claimed that all living things came from a vibrant energy which he called Love or Divine spark, a source of life present in every human being which could manifest both in the mind as in the body and its main manifestation is health.
Discovering the Bach flowers
In addition, Bach said that the soul of every living thing came to fulfill a specific mission that is just as important as each soul. When this Divine mission is interrupted or blocked by the impulses of the personality is, there a conflict and imbalance in the flow of this divinity, which will be evident in a blockage in the flow of our vital energy and manifest itself as a symptom of emotional conflict, which, if prolonged, will provide results in physical manifestations which we know as disease.
Thus, Dr. Bach summed up his philosophy in the performance of a soul mission in life, which, if not carried out, there will imbalances and unstable and conflicting emotions which soon lead to the person to suffer weaknesses, diseases and body disorders.
All this can be summarized in a few words, if human doesn’t reach the true happiness, gets ill.
Trying to cure any disease without understanding the depth of the roots that generate it only temporarily correct the condition.
Dr. Bach considered two key mistakes to interrupt the natural flow of health:
- The separation of the mission of life with personality.
- Cruelty or evil to others (which derives from the ignorance and lack of understanding of oneself).
In his important work on the health, Bach came to the conclusion that the body decay, weaken and get sick due mainly to the following types of behavior or reaction to life:
- Ignorance: which leads to fear, pride, lack of peace and clarity and to all destructive behaviors.
- Pride: feeling more than any other person or being.
- Instability and insecurity: an inconsistent behavior, which stems from the lack of self confidence and lack of recognition of a perfect and harmonious world order.
- Selfishness: which is only taking into account the view of oneself and own needs, setting aside and disregarding others. Selfishness is also the result of ignorance and lack of understanding and oneself.
- Cruelty: hurt or harm others or yourself. Cruelty is the result of a lack of knowledge of love within your and another human being or living being.
- Hate: is the absence of love or knowledge.
All these emotions and attitudes towards life lead the person to block the flow of energy, all in some way, cause a severe resistance in the body, which eventually wear out the body.
To reduce the effects of these motions and provide a useful and natural alternative to the human being to help to beat peace while learning about behaviors, Dr. Bach devised what is now known as flower essences, which have the mission to help to raise the vibration energy in the person.
Bach Flowers help to have a greater willingness on our awareness of the experiences and learning in them, as well as to help develop a better understanding to avoid suffering and thus, the disease at all levels.
The disease is, essentially, the result of the conflict
