Flower Essence Aromatherapy and Paul's Aching Back

The other day my partner Paul hurt his back. He was bending over in our garden with his camera trying to get a picture of the bees hanging out in our poppies and was tensing up because those darn bees just never hold still. Pressing on, like the committed photographer he tends to be, he carried on through the pain and then laid himself up pretty good.

I was guided to try one of my flower essence/aromatherapy formulas. Flower essences are an offshoot of homeopathy. They have no smell and work by encouraging the body/psyche to bring forward whatever quality of healing a person needs next. They're 100% organic and I add them to organic essential oils and jojoba to capitalize on their healing effects. I then channel Reiki into every one. In this case, I was guided to use the blend I call Releasing Worry and Fear.

When people are in pain or going through any kind of physical or emotional crisis, they tend to generate a lot of fear: "Oh no, what have I done?! This hurts so much! Will I never get well? Is there something really serious going on?" and on it goes while the body tenses up and increases the painful contractions of muscle fiber even more. I put a few dabs of my Releasing Worry and Fear on the skin directly where it hurt and in less than a minute Paul let out a sigh of relief and said "That feels so much better!" I didn't do massage and had only just begun to add my own energy healing into the mix. I didn't have to. But, I keep thinking, what if someone did have a massage or other therapeutic bodywork practice? Just imagine what that could do!
