Text, Rose, senior flower friend
I decided to believe the wisdom of my own body, to treat and heal myself and restore my health.
After a serious illness more than four years ago, in order to get myself healthy, I tried Western medicine, Chinese medicine, chiropractic, acupuncture and moxibustion, fire cupping, blood letting, foot massage, aromatherapy, all because my stomach and intestines were in pain. The doctor of Western medicine gave me medicine to reduce bloating and promote peristalsis, and I knew that Western medicine could not do more than that for me. Similar other methods all assisted my health and my condition gradually. It was just that, when I reached a certain stage, I would realize that there was no further way to help me. I decided to believe the wisdom of my body, follow the responses of my own body and serve as my own doctor.
At the same time, I also attended spiritual growth classes, wishing to care for my own heart. There was a class called “Treating the Body Through the Heart,” under the guidance of whose teacher I discovered my faith: “I am an ill person and I want to be healthy. If I resign myself to being ill, I will always be ill; I won’t become healthy.” This kind of faith awakened me. It was an important turning point for me. It was just that it’s very difficult for the self at the level of faith to face up to study for life practice.
Another important matter was that, in the previous year, at work, I had experienced a serious conflict with my group, involving negative moods and continual work interruptions, causing a lot of pain. I discovered that the reason for the conflict was that we reacted only to the negative moods of others, constantly magnifying them and ignoring the matters on which we truly wished to communicate. I wanted to get away from the pain.
Believe in flower essences and face oneself honestly
The first bottle of flower essences mobilized my trauma. In fact, I knew this trauma and had used many methods to deal with it, but had been unable to eliminate it completely, and the flower essence, within a few short days, took me back to a deep place within this traumatic mood, gave me opportunities to accompany myself in experiencing and accepting these deep-seated negative moods, and, in transforming and adjusting myself, I felt liberated, comfortable and calm in my inner heart. This process left a deep impression on me, because even if I had found a consultant to assist me, it would have been very difficult to touch the source of the trauma so directly and to dispose of it.
I have used flower essences for almost a year already. Each bottle of flower essences helps me accurately to dispose of and balance a kind of emotional disturbance. That process involves facing, experiencing, accepting, dealing with, balancing, for between about 10 or 12 days. Through writing and meditation, I can intimately and honestly get on with myself and not need to worry about the impressions of others. Usually, during the final few days, I feel serene and calm inside, sometimes even joyful.
Cleansing the body and soul
Negative moods gradually dissipate, like smoke, and no longer interfere with my life, and my ability to perceive myself is greatly improved.
As regards the body, we find then that heaviness in the muscles and footsteps is a result of being full of negative moods. As negative moods are eliminated one by one, the body’s heaviness diminishes; the body begins to feel more and more relaxed and the footsteps become light and graceful.
As regards the heart, it feels soft. After helping patients as a master of flower therapy, I feel that having a merciful heart inside I can better see the hardship and blockages behind other people, and feel the people and things around me to be more and more beautiful and that the world no longer makes things difficult for me.
Spiritually, since starting to use flower essences, I have meditated before sleeping and my heart feels more and more clear and calm, close to the life of the self. It’s great!
Flower essences are a good friend on whom I can completely depend.
They give me the support of love and enable me to remain sober and calm, to see my own blind spots, courageously escape the limitations of the self, to accompany the continued walk towards the road to bodily and spiritual harmony.
Having made that walk, Master Qi Ming wrote in a book about flower essences, that one never understands, one is never certain; that one by one everything is experienced and proven and one gains deeper faith and trust in flower essences and flower cards.
