With so much talk about the economy, now is a good time to talk about how flower essences can be used to help you avoid being caught up in the anxiety being felt in mass consciousness in this regard. There are always individuals who thrive even in times of the worst adversity and there is no reason why you can’t be one of them. A lot of it comes down to attitude.
In the Level 2 workshop for Australian Bush Flower Essences, one of the themes is creating abundance – not so you can go off and indulge in greed, avarice and conspicuous consumption, but more so that you can create an environment in your life where your basic necessities are easily met (the definition of ‘basic necessities’ varies with everyone). With these met, you can then focus on following your true life path and purpose rather than being locked into a situation that you “have” to continue with in order to survive. I like to imagine what the world would look like if everyone had an opportunity to earn their income doing what they loved to do and were good at. It would be much happier I suspect.
Part of this process is being clear about what your goals are, writing them down and regularly reviewing them. Another useful exercise is to consciously become aware of what it is you most love to do.
However many people still come unstuck financially purely through subconscious patterns that ultimately undermine and sabotage all attempts to create long term financial security.
Probably the biggest of these is the attitudes towards money you absorbed as a child from your family. ‘Money is the root of all evil”, “You have to work hard for your money”, “Money burns a hole in your pocket”, “Money doesn’t grow on trees”, are just a few examples. The Australian Bush Flower Essence Boab is useful for releasing negative family attitudes and patterns, including around money.
Worthiness is another good issue to consider. If you feel, deep down, you don’t deserve it, no matter what good things you create in your life, or what opportunities come your way, you will eventually find a way to mess it all up. Five Corners is used to help release these sabotage patterns, raise your self esteem, and improve your sense of worthiness.
An ‘attitude of gratitude’ is also important. We have all seen people who have oodles of material things and other blessings who don’t appreciate them at all. For all their riches they still aren’t happy, so in reality they are actually poor. Poor is a state of mind. Other people focus so much on what they haven’t got, that they fail to see what they do have. The saying ‘you never appreciate what you’ve got until it’s gone’ is food for thought in both these instances. Just ask anyone who has lost their health or a loved one. Pink Flannel Flower is a Bush Essence which helps you to move into a state of gratitude, and to appreciate the beauty in small moments. Most people living in Western societies are blessed beyond belief in comparison to the rest of the world. This is so even taking the global economic crisis into consideration.
A very simple but effective way of shifting your focus from one of lack, to one of abundance, is to keep a ‘Gratitude Diary’. Every evening before bed, write down five things that you are grateful for. It’s free, it’s easy, its fast, and it’s powerful.
Philotheca is another Bush Essence for opening you up to abundance. It is used to help you become more open to receive. If we divided the wealth of the world evenly amongst every man woman and child, everyone would have over $US 1 million. So it is not a lack of money that is the problem (even right now). If you feel uncomfortable receiving, it will be difficult for you to draw abundance to you. Ask yourself: how comfortable are you with receiving compliments? If you can’t even take in a compliment, how are you going to feel about accepting your one million dollars?
This, along with the other subconscious patterns mentioned above, and lack of financial education, is why over 90% of people who win the lottery have lost the lot within two years. So it is worthwhile having a think about whether your attitudes around money could do with an overhaul.
Australian Bush Flower Essences can assist the whole process by shifting your vibrational pattern, attitudes, and emotions around money. Try their combination “Abundessence”, which contains all the flowers discussed here, plus more. There have been some quite astounding testimonials sent in from people describing the events that unfolded after taking this essence.
And remember that abundance isn’t just about money. It includes job satisfaction, happiness within your relationship, friendships and family, spiritual fulfilment, health, and outlook upon life, just to mention a few.
