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.
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.
