Falling is not the problem – its how you get up counts
Recently I fell down – hard. I lay face down, in the car park. The intense, searing heat of pain filled my body and my mind. There was no room for thought.
Then slowly, as the minutes ticked by and shock had subsided a little, I thought – “at some point I must get up!” I still don’t know how I got up – but I did!
I drove home and contacted my niece, Jenny, just 15 minutes away, and as I was in no way able to go shopping, I asked her to bring me a few groceries. She arrived with the groceries and two bunches of flowers, and said …
“Auntie Rosie - the first bunch is to say sorry you fell down..
And the second bunch is to say “Congratulations! You got up!”
We all fall – sometimes physically, but probably more often, emotionally. In fact, if we’re living a ‘good and brave’ life, at sometime, we’re bound to fall down.
Jenny also (very sternly) reminded me that when we're in a crisis, we have to recongise that we need help.
Not only did I need physical help, I needed emotional help too, and I naturally reached for my beloved Remedies.
Falling down is not the problem – it is how we get up that matters. This blog is about how the Bach Flower Remedies can help you get up again. And that is when the Bach Flowers remedies can help tremendously.
The thought of ‘getting back up’ can be scary – apart from the pain involved – there’s a major fear of failure. Facing the hurt and the humiliation is pain enough!
But don’t let a fall be the end of your journey.
You too can get up again.
And to help you get back up again, I’ve given you a few Bach Remedy suggestions to help you get back up when you fall (physically, mentally or emotionally).
As I’m sure you know, I started taking Rescue Remedy straight away. 2 drops in my tea – and then 2 drops in my water, to sip frequently. And I took it for hours. Even four hours after falling, I could still feel the shock waves trembling through my body. Star of Bethlehem is the remedy (in Rescue) that did its good work on healing my shock and ‘sticking’ me back together.
When unfortunate things happen in life, we’re often inclined to look to ‘blame’ someone or something. There are only two places where we can lay blame – and that is with ourselves or with others.
If you feel that you’re been treated unfairly and you can’t do anything about it, then Willow will heal your feelings of resentment at being treated badly and get you quickly back on track.
It’s so easy to blame ourselves when things don’t go well. “I should have seen that. I could have gone the other way. What a stupid thing to do!”. If this is your ‘self-talk’ then you’ll recognise it. If it isn’t, you can probably recognise it in one of family or friends.
If this is how you feel – then Pine will bring you a new perspective.
Whether you’ve had a bad fall as I had, or whether it’s a smaller fall, all falls (emotional falls too) shake us up and we loose confidence. Larch is the self-confidence remedy and will make a tremendous difference to you deal with life after your fall.
This is a brilliant remedy to help with anxieties. If you know what makes you anxious, (for example going out again after your fall), then Mimulus will sooth your anxieties, and together with Larch, bruises aside, you’ll be as right-as-rain in a few days.
There are 38 remedies in the Bach Flower healing system. Each remedy is like a mini personality with different characteristics. We’re emotional beings and we always feel several feelings at once. So its natural to need more than one remedy at a time.
I've chosen remedies that could help you to get back up again, after any ‘fall’.
