Bach Blog. Not Learning From Experience

You’ve heard people say “oh, so and so has happened again.  I’m obviously not learning my lesson about this”! Or “I’ve done it again – when will I learn?”  Well that sums up this week’s remedy.   

Chestnut Bud – the second ‘non-flower’ flower remedy of the Bach Flower Remedies as it’s made from the leaf bud of the White Chestnut tree, so it does have some similar traits to the White Chestnut remedy.

Not learn from experience

Do you often find yourself in the same situation? Perhaps the names and places have change, but you’re definitely living the same story over and over?  Or perhaps you always catch a cold every Christmas, or get a bout of flue every February?

This means you’re not evaluating your experiences of life deeply enough. You’re not using your powers of observation well enough.

2 Steps ahead of yourself.

It might seem as if you need Impatiens because you’re always in a hurry. You are 2 steps ahead of yourself and what’s going on around you.  Do you find your thoughts are wandering during a conversation as you’re not paying attention to what’s being said, because you’re too busy planning what you’re going to say as soon as you get the opportunity?

If you need this remedy, you’re not seeing the value of this moment.

Those in need of Chestnut Bud love to start new projects, because they definitely don’t like to take the time to digest the past.   They really don’t deal with problems well at all. If they do think about them, they tend to solve them in their imagination: in their day-dreams, but don’t put their solutions into practice.

Recurrent illness

I asked you earlier, if you suffer from annual recurring sickness.  If so, this is a definite indication of needing Chestnut Bud.   Here are a couple of cases/stories about Chestnut Bud.

Celia Budd was a college student.  Every two or three months she would get a severe cold that stopped her going to lectures and kept her from her studies. She shyly mentioned that she welcomed her colds, as gave her a break from her studies.

When carefully questioned, it came to light, that she wasn’t interested in her college course and didn’t want to be there at all and Chestnut Bud cleared up Celia’s recurrent colds and (with some Larch) had the confidence to leave college.

Charlie Boy was 8 years old and was very slow to learn.  Although he tried really hard, he always had  low grades He was not a day dreamer, and was always bright and happy, but he was ‘quick’ and careless about a lot of things, including his school-work.
He had to be reminded to pick up his lunch and take his school bag.  His mother always got the impression that what she was saying didn’t register with him.

Charlie improved on Chestnut Bud.  He was now able to apply himself better and his grades in class improved too.

Over to you

Bach Flower Therapy is a brilliant healing method.  You can manage your feelings of ‘not quite right’  and you can feel better quickly.  I have a Bach Flower On Line Course that will give you the confidence to treat yourself and your family and friends.  Have a look.  It might just be what you’ve been looking for,

Also, I love to hear from you, so please leave your thoughts and comments.  Thank you.

      Hello Joanne. Lovely to hear from you. I remember the Cheltenham workshop very well.
      I’m glad you enjoyed the Bach Blog on Chestnut Bud. As its not often used, is often missed when it’s needed to do so much good.
      And you’ve been to the Healing Herbs factory! It’s a special place isn’t it? No wonder their remedies as so powerful!
      Good to hear from you Joanne. Hope you and your family are well.

    Lovely messages Rose. I liked your blogs. It is really educative. I would love to subscribe to your blog

    • Rose Todd says:

      Hello Ravi. Thank you for your kind words. I’m glad you find the blogs helpful.
      I don’t have a ‘blog subscription’ as it were, but I genrally put up a blog each week, except when I sent out emails for a workshop or an course, which I’m doing at the moment.
      But I always send emails out when I’ve posted a new blog, so when I’ve finished telling everyone about my new course, I’ll be back in the routine of writing a blog a week. And you’ll get an email telling you its on my site.
      Keep well. And thank you for leaving a comment. Rose.

I need her to stop worrying n constantly repeating the same story over n over again.. sometimes even for 5-6-8 hours.. from the moment she opens her eyes till she sleeps which is hardly as I have to forcibly say I’m tired n she gets upset…but the whole nite she doesn’t sleep.. st the moment she likes this guy who’s not responsive to her as .. she thinks she’s not pretty , in the big side ,can’t talk ( esp now .. she’s too shy to speak n is too anxious to speak) . Pls help .. desparate .. P’s she’s been crying a lot since couple of weeks.. I do understand depression all but he hasn’t said NO ..but keeps dropping hints girlfriendetc.. which of course she refuses to accept as she thinks he’s just saying this to put her off as she’s fat n notpretty( she’s really v pretty actually) n can’t speak ( S she chokes up when she’s around him) she’s been v quiet child n had a throat issue but after some reiki she’s really opened up n can’t seem to stop talking… pls suggest somethg to stop her from worrying too much n to calm down n b happy about herself

      Hello Shobha. Thank you leaving your comment.
      I’m sorry to hear your daughter is troubled. I suggest she takes White Chestnut for the same thoughts going around and around all the time. The mind is seeking a solution, but can’t find it.
      It sounds as if your daughter could do with some help. I can offer her (through you, if that’s what she’d like) a Bach consultaiton, as this is too much to unravel here.
      Have a look and see if this would help her.
      Warm wishes.
