Vibrational essences are based on the basic homoeopathic principle of “like cures like“, that is, that a disease is treated by minute dosages of a drug, that in a healthy person would cause the exact same symptoms (physical and emotional) of that disease.
Instead of working with drugs or chemicals, essences are based on plants, gems or minerals. Each essence has a particular vibration or resonance characteristic of the matter it is made from and that resonance corresponds with particular emotional, physical and spiritual attributes.
Essences are a form of very subtle healing that work on energy centres of the human body (or animals) balancing and harmonising energy flow. They are effective in removing negative thought patterns, blocked energy, negative emotions and releasing past traumas. Essences are also effective in supporting and assisting people to move forward in more positive ways eg, with increased courage, clarity or peace of mind.
Dr Edward Bach discovered flower essences in the 1930’s. His essences are the Bach Flower essences, but many other essences have been discovered and developed since then. Using a simple potentisation process, he was able to infuse the basic energetic field of plants onto water thus making the required infinitesimal dosage. Through experimentation and observation he discovered the physical and emotional states of each plant he studied, bringing into being the basic 38 Bach Flower Essences.
Vibrational essences can be a powerful tool in healing menstrual difficulties and reducing discomfort and painful symptoms. The menstrual cycle (as with many biological functions) is a process that is intimately linked with a woman’s emotional state, belief systems and thoughts. Negative states like anger, shame or disgust at your bodies function can translate into menstrual difficulties.
Using vibrational essences can be a gentle, yet effective way of bringing balance into your body healing issues and patterns that are often below consciousness to bring lasting change. Working on a subtle level essences assist in removing negative emotional and mental habits clearing the way for a more positive relationship with your body.
For example looking more closely at some of the essences mentioned in last month’s newsletter, we can examine some of the descriptions and uses of common essences.
