Abandonment or Rejection  see Grief


Addictions   Addictions may result from unfulfilled needs, longings or desires such as ... escape ... excitement ... reward ... belonging ... punishment.  Flower essences can gently support your choice to overcome addictions such as smoking or food cravings by instilling motivation and strength, as well as helping you find balance and inner peace.  The essence of the flowers reconnects you to your core self, restores inner balance and harmony, and re-connects you to something larger than yourself, thereby eliminating the need for escape

"I am enjoying this essence.  It feels satisfying ... and I feel that I do not want to stop taking it. It keeps me away from the sugar. Passed up on hot chocolate today and cake yesterday. I do not feel as anxious. My thoughts are clear and I am enjoying the shifts in my body"  Pam M  St Catharines ON

IMPORTANT!  When breaking substance addictions (including addiction to adrenaline), a metabolic detoxification protocol is recommended.  Flower essences are not suitable for overcoming drug or alcohol addictions.  However, they can augment counseling and addiction recovery programs


Anger  A healthy natural emotion, anger is widely considered negative or socially unacceptable.  But, anger is important!  It reveals when something isn't fair or right AND it compells you to speak up or take action.  When you repress or suppress anger, you can't set things right or act to get your needs met.  This can lead to depression and emotional shutdown

Anxiety     Anxiety has 4 common causes:

Type 1)  Butterflies or tightness in the stomach or solar plexus indicates an underlying fear of something new and unfamiliar stemming from a lack of confidence.  Examples are fear of public speaking, anticipated events or changes in your life, a pending test or exam, a job promotion.  Stress is a similar type of anxiety, but at a lesser level

Type 2)  Anxiety in the chest--this may be caused by grief, rejection or abandonment.  The onset of a heart attack can also feel like this


The most common Type 3)  Anxiety high in the chest--this sometimes feels like panic or uncontrolled anxiety

The most common cause is potassium deficiency.  If you can eliminate this as one source of the problem, then an energy blockage may be present 

As energy travels up your body through the meridians, it reaches the narrowest point at your neck.  When energy is restricted and cannot flow freely into your head, it bottlenecks, building up congestion in the thymus region at the base of your throat

The thymus area is where your soul comes and leaves your body.  So, restricted energy here can make you feel you no longer want live.  You may even feel suicidal.  A thyroid imbalance may develop.  You can feel as though someone is choking you

The main cause of blockage in the throat and thyroid region is inhibition and an inability to speak up for yourself.  You aren't asking for what you want or need.  Your boundaries are probably vague so people may take advantage of you, or treat you with disrespect.  You may have an exaggerated sense of duty and feel responsible for all that goes wrong around you.  You may even be a bit of a martyr, sacrificing yourself to gain love or acceptance from those you love

Type 4)  Those who are sensitive or empathic can be adversely affected by other people's negativity, or by violent television shows, news programs, or movies, even music.  You may feel other people's thoughts and feelings, but, not recognize when these feelings are not your own.  This can cause anxiety and moodiness

Likely, your 6th sense picks up negative psychic energies around you, which triggers a low-level 'fight or flight' adrenal response

Betrayal   Betrayal is one of the 7 life-altering emotional wounds.  It creates self-protective emotional walls and defensive behaviors that block happiness, closeness with others, and ultimately prevents abundance from entering your life

     Helpful flower essences remedies:  Heartbreak Heal, Love Empowered, Forgive My Past, Forgiveness, Respect Me!, Be Kind to Yourself     


Childhood Issues   What you learn as a child colors your entire outlook on life.  Challenging relationships with parents or siblings, neglect, lack of nurturing, criticism, abuse, bullying, sexual abuse, incest, adoption, abandonment, rejection, foster care--these experiences teach you to believe that you are unlovable or flawed

Flower essences are a fast, gentle way to release your emotional wounds and start to  feel lovable.  Sometimes memories can briefly surface as the flower essences begin to shift your internal frequencies.  This is only temporary.  As you permanently release your emotional baggage and shift into a happier, more balanced state, you will begin to see your past in a more positive light

Depression   Do not confuse sadness, grief, or despair with depression.  Depression is numbness resulting from emotional shutdown.  You shut down because you are either escaping from deep emotional pain, or feel powerless to get what you need or want.  Depression can also result from chemical (neuro-peptide) imbalance caused by nutritional deficiencies, shock, emotional trauma, or a traumatic physical accident or head injury 

Flower essences restore your ability to feel.  That can be uncomfortable at first.  But, it is the first step toward becoming happy.  Learn why ...

IMPORTANT:  Flower essences can help you to feel wonderful.  And that can make you want to stop taking your anti-depressant medication.  Do not stop taking medication suddenly or without your doctor's supervision. Do not use flower essences as a substitute for qualified medical care


Family Challenges  For those challenging times you need to cope with family, set boundaries, or gain greater self empowerment, we recommend ...

Grief, Sadness  Grief and sadness result from personal loss, and its resulting loneliness or feeling of separation.  There are so many different components to grief, depending on what you have lost--a spouse, a pet, a child, a relationship, a loved one, a job, a marriage (divorce or separation), a limb, or a lifestyle.  The common element is a sense of loss, a feeling of separation or isolation, and a sense of fear and trepidation due to impending change

Grief is highly damaging to your physical body, so address grief as quickly as possible.  The longer you hold grief, the more it becomes a habit in your mind and body, and the longer it takes to dissolve it

Guilt  Guilt, shame and self-recrimination are self-destructive emotions that are the root cause of scarcity or lack in every area of your life

     Helpful flower essence remedies:  Guilt Release, I Am Deserving, Forgiveness, Forgive My Past, Self Acceptance, Self Forgiveness, Clear & Protect 


Negativity   Every day you are inundated by negativity  ... news, TV shows, advertising, movies, workplace, and family, as well as your own negative thoughts and feelings.  Negativity accumulates, weighing you down.  It drains your energy and motivation.  It affects your perceptions and outlook.  And that hampers your success

Low Self-Esteem, Confidence, Assertiveness   Self esteem is the foundation for all good things in your life!  When you don't appreciate who you are and understand your value to others, it limits your prosperity, success, happiness, relationships and imtimacy with others.  If you don't see your value to others, how can you believe anyone will love you or that you are worthy of having abundance and success?  If you can't relax and be your true self, your relationships will be based on an illusion, so you will constantly feel insecure, jealous, mistrustful, and needy

Stress  Stress is a sense of overwhelm or a belief that you cannot handle the challenge presented.   Nutritional deficiencies, lack of sunlight, metabolic toxins, caffeine and sugar, and unhealthy diet can contribute to feeling stress.  Stress can trigger menopause symptoms and insomnia.  Take quality magnesium and B-complex vitamins.  Fresh lemon squeezed into water is also helpful

Stuck  Everyone feels 'stuck' in some aspect of their life from time to time.  You want to create a change, but are unable to figure out how to make that happen.  You may not even know what you want or need to change--only that you feel the urge to shift or move in a different direction.  Feeling stuck results from emotional walls such as lack of forgiveness, resisting change, or a focus on logic rather than intuition

Unfulfilled  Are you longing to find or discover your destiny?  Are you feeling bored or yearning for something that remains elusive?   Everyone needs challenges and 'soul food'--experiences that teach you positive lessons about yourself, enrich your soul, and provide meaning to life

     Helpful flower essence remedies:  Align to Your Destiny, Success, Flow, Proactive, Beat the Cravings  


Victim/Bullying/Self Pity   When you suppress your personal power or are unable to set boundaries, others will push, challenge and bully you--whether you are a child, an adult in the workplace, or in an abusive marriage.  Often, those who are bullied are sensitive introverts.  Introverts are thinkers, feelers, innovators.  Introverts hold within themselves great unexpressed personal power and the ability to achieve great things.  But, they tend to unconsciously suppress their personal power until they develop sufficient maturity, experience, and confidence to express it properly
