From learning how to control our anger or resentment I am now going to share with you ways of releasing these very strong emotions. But before I do that I need to tell you of two emergency tips to have to hand.
Firstly is Bach Rescue Remedy. I carry this with me wherever I go.
Although not a remedy in itself, Rescue Remedy it does, however, help to prevent or quickly overcome ENERGETIC TRAUMA.. This remedy prevents disintegration of the energetic system or quickly restores it to normal.
Rescue Remedy is made up of five flowers:-
Star of Bethlehem – For trauma and numbness
Rock Rose – For terror or panic
Impatiens – for Irritability
Cherry Plum – for losing control
Clematis – for the tendency to pass out.
I use this remedy in the spray form but you can get it as drops, gum and pastilles. There are also preparations for nighttime. In an emergency or an overwhelming build up of emotion put a few drops under the tongue. Repeat. Calmness will come.
Now for Bach Flower Remedy Rock Rose – For extreme fear, terror or panic. Sudden escalating anxieties. Extreme energetic trauma.
I use this a lot especially in travelling mode. I wouldn’t of got through the Channel Tunnel without this. I must of used nearly a whole bottle. When travelling always make sure you have enough of these remedies to last the whole trip and get you back.
These two remedies are wonderful so if you are feeling an extreme emotion building up such as Anger, use Rescue Remedy to calm you down. If the emotion is boiling over Rock Rose will calm it down. In these instances I would put a few drops under the tongue. Repeat as necessary.
Preventative care would be the remedy Impatiens, obviously for people who get impatient very quickly over any little thing or flares up through anger that passes very quickly. With impatiens I would put drops in a glass of water and sip regularly using one of the above to calm the flare up. Impatiens removes your irritability so Anger will not flare up as easily.
I am placing a link to the Bach Center for more information on these remarkable remedies. I stick with these because I know they work even though there are other forms out there.
We are here to talk about releasing the emotions of anger and resentment and I would say Bach Flower Remedies are such a gentle way of dealing with these emotional issues.
Holly – For negative aggressive feelings directed at others – feelings such as hatred, suspicion, envy or spite.
To use put a few drops in a glass of water and sip regularly. repeat until you suddenly realize that the emotion has gone. Can be used on its own or with other remedies.
Star of Bethlehem. I love this remedy it is so gentle and heals painful emotions. I have even used this on the dog for separation anxiety. This remedy deals with trauma of physical, mental or negative energetic experiences. It is able neutralize any form of energetic trauma, restoring equilibrium to the bodies energies.
You can use this on its own or with other remedies such as Holly. A few drops in water, sip regularly. repeat until you notice the emotion has gone.
Mustard has been used before for sadness. Anger and resentment make us feel bad so I have added this to the remedy collection. Mustard removes the black cloud caused by negative emotions, even if you don’t know why you feel gloomy.
Use as above, on its own or with the two previous remedies.
And finally Honeysuckle – this allows you to release the past whether recent or way back such as childhood. Brilliant. Use as the others until you realize your emotions are settled.
I would use this selection altogether, putting a few drops of each into a glass of water and sip regularly. It doesn’t actually have to be water, you can put the drops in any liquid beverage you like. These remedies do contain a minute portion of alcohol as a preservative. If this worries you, you can buy alcohol free online.
Please use the original stock by Bach, I have found copies are not up to snuff. Boots do a small selection, G Baldwins.co.uk carry a full range as well as Holland and Barrett and of course The Bach Centre.
Please take full responsibility for your own health.
