In 1935 when Dr. Edward Bach announced that his work ‘was finished’, he left us with what are globally known as the 38 Bach Flower Remedies. While it has been suggested that there are over 200 million possible combinations of the 38, we can easily look at each of them from a far simpler perspective; one that is not so overwhelming to contemplate, through simple ‘key phrases’ . These brief statements are clues that can lead us to an appropriate remedy selection. When we experience a ‘lack of self-confidence’, Bach’s Larch is a good choice.
In general, the remedies can and do work on multiple layers of ourselves and they can do so simultaneously. In other words, they meet us where we are. They can support us through ‘situational’ episodes that are temporary or at deeper levels wherein emotional themes have been part of our operating system for some time…perhaps over the course of our lifetime. Going even “deeper”, some of the remedies support us in soul growth, the concept that was at the heart of Dr. Bach’s healing philosophy and work. For a more thorough look at Dr. Bach’s work, log onto my website, www.gayemack.com which has this information as well as how I work as a practitioner with flower remedies.
As summer ends and fall approaches, it brings with it the start of the school year for our kids. ‘Larch’ is an excellent choice for them if they are feeling some anxiety about their self-confidence as they enter a new situation. This remedy is not only appropriate for the youngest of our children taking the next big step into their development, but for those who are old hands at the school scene.
However, keep in mind that Larch isn’t only for school situations. It is THE remedy for any situation wherein we are feeling unsure of ourselves, whether it be school, work, social or even situations involving personal relationships.
