Being of service

Flower Essence of the Month : AGRIMONY

Posted by on 8:00 am in addiction, Agrimony, bach flowers, emotional honesty, inner peace | 0 comments

  The life of the party. The class clown. The perpetually blissed out spiritual seeker. The workaholic. The shopaholic. The emotional eater. The nightly wine drinker. The TV/internet/video game/social media addict. The descriptions above all represent people who could benefit from a dose of the Bach flower essence for May – Agrimony. Often referred to as wearing a “mask of cheerfulness”, those in need of Agrimony will go to great lengths to avoid acknowledging the dark sides of life. These people appear happy and put together on...

Wisdom from a six year old

Wisdom from a six year old

So, this post almost didn’t find its way onto the blog this week. A nasty case of writer’s block and perfectionism descended on my office on Monday and hung around like a dark cloud all week. Try as I may, and boy did I try, I just couldn’t shake it (note to self: reorder Rock Water as all existing supplies may have been drunk directly from the bottle…). By yesterday afternoon I was pushing, forcing and trying to strong arm some kind of post into existence, when I came across this: AMEN! I don’t know who to...

Woof! Meow! Using Bach flower remedies with your furry friends

Woof! Meow! Using Bach flower remedies with your furry friends

This just in from the “never say never” files. This week my little family adopted a dog. For those who know me well, this is beyond shocking. Why? Because, although I am an animal lover, I’ve always preferred to love animals from afar, rather than as pets in my own home. I don’t have anything against owing cats, dogs, birds, fish and the like. I’ve just never been comfortable sharing space with them. This is particularly true for dogs, because, well I’m terrified of dogs. Yes, even the little ones. Yes, even that cute little teacup Yorkie...

Free to be you… and me

Free to be you… and me

Someone once told me that if I walked on my left foot while everyone else was walking on their right, I was going to trip and fall. This was said as an argument for not being different; as a way to persuade me to see that I’d better fall in line, do what was expected of me and behave as everyone else does or risk being ostracized. This conversation occurred right as I was on the brink of embracing my now totally off the beaten path, decidedly “different” life. At that time I was vegan, just had a homebirth, was raising my...

8 natural therapies for managing mental illness – #IamStigmafree

Two posts in one week?? What’s come over me? Mental Illness Awareness Week, that’s what! I really want to embrace this opportunity to share my experience and resources during a time when awareness is high. As a result you’re getting a few extra doses of Seed to Blossom this week. If you missed yesterday, I recapped my story of struggling with postpartum depression and how I recovered using Bach flower essences. Today, I’d like to share with you the other resources that helped me find my way to balance after PPD, that I use daily to manage...

Mental Illness Awareness Week #IamStigmafree

Since I live under a rock don’t use social media at all, I tend not to be up to date on the latest and greatest happenings in the world. I have no idea what the cool kids are watching on TV these days (Friends isn’t still on the air, right?) and I’m only vaguely aware of what’s going on in sports, pop culture and music (beyond mantra and show tunes). Thankfully, I do read a blog or two, and while browsing Belleruth Naperstek’s latest posts at Health Journeys earlier today, I learned that this week is Mental Illness Awareness Week, as promoted...

FOMO be gone! Bach flowers for giving social media anxiety the boot

It’s no secret that I have a very love-hate relationship with social media, and technology as a whole. I was an early adopter of all things internet (I had a personal website and blog in 2004!), and truly loved it. The internet and our worldwide connectivity have brought many people and experiences into my life that I would not have had otherwise. And for that I am very grateful. However. That same technology has, in recent years, been the source of much anxiety, depression and frustration in my life. I can easily get caught up in the compare...
