Bush Flowers, or Australian Bush Flower Essences, are the answer found by Australian herbalist and naturopath Ian White to the question of which flowers we need to mitigate the ailments of the body, mind and soul in today’s world.
The Australian Aborigines used flowers to heal emotions since ancient times. So did ancient peoples in Egypt, India, Asia and South America, as well as in Europe in the Middle Ages. This knowledge was rediscovered by Edward Bach several decades ago.
Ian White, who grew up in Australia and witnessed his mother’s and grandmother’s use of plants native to that country for healing, dedicated himself to researching and creating a new therapeutic system that has a powerful healing action.
Bush Flowers act on the personality and the physical plane, and according to their creator, they bring clarity and strength to achieve our purposes, helping to develop intuition, self-esteem, spirituality, creativity and capacity for joy.
Why is the use of Bush Flowers effective?
Bush elixirs are elaborated from the flowers, which are the most evolved parts of plants, and which concentrate their vibratory energy. This energy is used to harmonize negative feelings and belief patterns rooted in the subconscious mind.
This therapy is based on the premise that illnesses are nothing more than physical manifestations of emotional imbalances. Bush essences then seek to raise our vibrations, and open new channels of perception of our spiritual being.
Flower remedies activate the positive qualities that reside within us, while helping us to be aware of our intuitions, and to keep us going by acting on them.
It is also worth mentioning that the effect of elixirs is similar to that of meditation. It allows us to access the wisdom of the higher self and to free ourselves from negative beliefs of the subconscious mind.
According to the author of “Flower Essences” Gurudas, flower essences are the most effective way to treat the subtle energy bodies, meridians and physical body, compared to other therapies such as homeopathic remedies and gem elixirs.
Bush Flower Elixirs contain high frequency subtle energies. They are able to act on the subtle energy fields, as well as the emotional, mental and spiritual vehicles.
Gurudas points out that flower essences cleanse the aura and subtle bodies so that imbalances do not lead to ill health. Thus they contribute to achieving a state of general well-being.
