Parents, siblings, grandparents, neighbours, friends, teachers, TV, radio, movies – young children absorb information like sponges from all these sources whilst still mostly pre-verbal. Nature wired us this way so that we could figure out how to negotiate our environment. However, nature did this when we were living in small tribes close to nature (a very different scenario to modern living in western culture).
It is estimated that 90% of our sub conscious patterning is formed by the time we are 3 years old. Given that much of our conscious behaviour is driven by our subconscious patterning, this gives serious pause for thought.So, if your view of the world was mostly formed by the time you were three – whose programs are running in the background? How much are these programs pulling your strings? Are these values aligned with your own values, dreams and goals? When something stressful or traumatic happens, do you respond or react? How old are you at these times? Interesting questions to contemplate…
As a parent, are you concerned about the effect of this myriad of influences on your own children? If you see your child taking on values not congruent with your own, or if they experience a trauma, would you like to have a natural, accessible means of helping them?
One way is with flower essences – gentle, self adjusting remedies that help bring into balance intense or negative thought patterns and emotions. One of the most beautiful things about flower essences is that they are a totally safe – you simply cannot do any harm with a flower essence. Anyone can choose and use a flower essence, and it is impossible to overdose on them. If you take the wrong one, all that happens is that it doesn’t work.
Australian Bush Flower Essences have 69 flower essences to assist with a wide range of emotional, attitudinal and spiritual patterns. One is a remedy called Paw Paw, which is specific for resolving conflict between conscious thoughts and sub conscious programming.

Rebirthing is form of guided meditation – a healing technique used to discover whether specific beliefs were taken on board during the birthing process or while still in the womb. For example practitioners experienced in rebirthing have documented that if a baby got stuck during the birth, they may grow into a person with a pattern of getting stuck later in life. If they were ‘rescued’ via medical intervention during the labour, they often wait to be rescued if they ‘get stuck’ in life. Whereas if they went on to be born naturally, they can often push through the obstacle themselves. It really is fascinating research. Our birth story is powerful, and knowing it can bring deep insights about our life and emotional patterns.
Imagine a world where your past traumas have been healed and your negative beliefs and limiting thought patterns dissolved, so that you are free to be the best person you can be. Imagine entering adulthood knowing who you are and what you want to do with your life, with good self esteem and the confidence to go out into the world and just go for it. Imagine a world full of people who are healthy in mind, body, heart and spirit.
I truly believe that Australian Bush Flower Essences can help bring this about, especially when I see the profound differences they have made in countless adult’s lives, including my own, and when I meet teenagers and young adults who have been raised on the Essences. I see it in my own family. I see it in the many children in my community whom I have given the Essences over the past ten years, sometimes from birth.
I am fortunate to also see this often as I teach my workshops around Australia and North America. Many people come back for new workshops over the years, or repeat a course just to be amongst like minded people for the weekend. It is wonderful to hear them describe how the Essences have enabled them to let go of and heal patterns that were not serving them. It is beautiful and heart warming to watch them blossomed as a result. Their journeys are truly inspiring.
