WELCOME from SALLY HOLMES REED

Flower and Energy Essences are a very special type of holistic healing that work with the nature spirits and elementals that give form to all living things. Our nervous system receives and transmits knowledge, accessing the bio-energy/life force that is unique to each flower or natural material. Essences work in subtle, gentle and safe ways on the fields of energy within and around our body, allowing healing to take place at all levels.

The Hawaiian language is beautiful and complex. The word, Akua, has many meanings. I use it here to mean the invisible, creative essence of nature, including the nature spirits that surround us. Please use these Essences with deep love and gratitude for the guidance, love, friendship and total commitment to our healing from the Flower and Nature Spirits.

Allow me to be your guide in choosing and working with the vibrational healing qualities of Flower & Energy Essences. Working co-creatively with the Akua, nature spirits, devas and elementals, each drop of the healing waters of Flower & Energy Essences vibrates with its own positive healing quality.

Molly from Green Hope Farm reminds us to follow our hearts when being guided to take Flower Essences.

It is my greatest pleasure to offer my combined training and experience in holistic hypnosis, vibrational healing, meridian tapping, educational kinesiology, breath awareness and Hawaiian healing to begin the process of change, activate healing and inspire a beautiful life with intuition, expertise, elegance, compassion, grace, truth, love and gratitude.

I hope you benefit from the information shared here. If this is different from what you have been taught, I am sorry. Please enjoy what is of interest to you and leave the rest.

Take care, Sally

How Flower Essence Companies Differ

This is an article by Deborah Bier, Aug 16, 2008:
Dozens of Essence Makers Beyond Bach Have Useful Health Applications

Did you know that there are dozens of companies around the globe manufacturing vibrational and flower essences today?

Most people know the 38 Bach Flower Remedies. However, starting back in the 1970s, essence companies have cropped up all around the world. Their total of thousands of products differ widely, consumers because increasing the range of the essences available and the types of challenges they are able to address.

There can be considerable differences between the essences made from the same species of plant from one company's offerings to another. Why is this? Is it a problem with manufacturing or testing procedures? Poor quality control? Or something else?

These differences are not a result of some failing on the part of essence companies. Instead, they’re an illustration of some of the fascinating qualities, laws, and methodologies of energy healing.

A Wide Variety of Factors Make a Difference

The individual plant or flower used makes one difference. It is not correct to assume that each, say, tulip is identical energetically to every other one of the species and type. Gardeners can affirm the differences between individual plants in the ways each thrives and grows (or the way they don't). If such variety exists on the physical plane, of course the same would be true of the non-physical world where the life force of essences reside.

Location of the essence making (and consumption, too) is another factor. The energies in one region of the world -- or even on one particular patch of land -- are different from those found in others, and will effect the experience of both making and using the essence.

The vibrational or flower essence maker is yet another important factor. Each "line" of essences has its own internal consistency and focus. Each plant/mineral/whatever has many, many energies but each maker captures only certain ones. There will be commonalities between essences by different makers made from the same species of plant, but there will certainly be differences that will affect each person's experience with the essence.

The Effects of Individual Beliefs, Feelings, and Thoughts

Differences also come about from other humans who may be involved in the essence process, from maker to practitioner to consumer. Their conscious and unconscious intentions play an unknown part in the effect the essence has on the final product and its effects.

Intention can be defined as a combination of the thoughts, ideas, feelings, state of being, and focus of each of the humans involved. Because essences work in the realm of energy, they are affected by other energies like thoughts and feelings, particularly of the person involved in the making and selecting.

In a similar way, the person who uses an essence for himself or loved ones can influence its action through his expectations, beliefs and intentions.
