And it happened, I felt a sudden surge of anxieties flow through my body as I lied on my bed in darkness, thinking about all of the things I felt needed to be adjusted in my life. As it got closer to my heart, I felt a forceful grip and a feeling that a deep hole was being dug. Fear began to spread like spilled water from a running faucet when suddenly, the eyes of my soul opened up and I fought back by yelling , “No!”. Slowly, I felt the release of the grip and a myriad of colors and fun cartoon like pictures began to flow through my mind. I finally took a deep breath and let out a long exhale.
I am a creative, and that my friends, is a world of awesomeness! One that I am forever grateful. At any given second, I might have the most amazing idea and the urge to quickly act on it. And I do, however, last time I checked, I am only one person, and trying to execute them all, can turn into an anxiety nightmare, even, sometimes, causing me to lose a sense of direction. Because I have so much to do and have this desperate need to express my ideas, I began to search for a natural supplement that could help me focus and also be part of my daily spiritual regimen.
I decided to incorporate Bach Flowers Remedies. If you are not familiar with it, Bach Flower Remedies is a natural method of healing, made from wildflowers, discovered by Dr. Bach from 1920 – 1930’s in England. They gently restore the balance between mind and body by casting out negative emotions such as fear, worry, hatred and indecision which interfere with the equilibrium of the being as a whole. The Bach Flower Remedies allow peace and happiness to return to the sufferer so that the body is free to heal itself. There are about 38 different remedies.
Since I am in need of some direction, I chose to take Bach’s Wild Oat:

Along with my regular habit of burning sage to cleanse negative energies and placing bottles of water to purify my surroundings, now I add two drops of Wild Oat on my tongue about 2-3 times daily. After just a week, I saw some major improvements specially in my mood. So I definitely recommend it. You can find these remedies at your local health food store. For more information, you can visit their website.
Life is a cycle, and thus, what was once in the beginning, returns, when we get to do the end. As we look at history, we find that our ancestors, were very much in tune with the spiritual aspects of life and nature. They knew that everything we need to live, here and in thereafter, had been provided to us. Somehow, as generations “progressed”, we stopped utilizing those natural resources and lost our innate connection to our higher level of consciousness. Our bodies and our minds are thirsty and hungry for that re-connection. With the rise of homeopathic alternatives, I believe we are getting back to that beginning.
