The time had come for me to sell my precious donkeys, due to restriction of available land for them to use. this was a haed decision, but one that was necessary.

They were advertised, and subsequently sold… to two different properties.

I had three donkeys in all. Two adults, and a foal, who had been weaned. It had been my greatest wish that they could go to the same property, but such was not the case.

The time came for mother and son to travel to Victoria, leaving dad behind. The day was not  a happy one for anyone, least of all for myself.

In anticipation of this, I had made a mix of Bleeding Heart and Crisis Calm, and applied these in a spray for several days before departure. These essences were chosen as a means of controlling fear about the move, as well as dealing with the grief of loss form each other.

Loading these two animals was easier than we had expected, as they seemed to be very calm and accepting of their situation.

After they left, my remaining boy was anxious, and braying from time to time. I applied the combination to him each time i heard the distress in his voice. The effect was instantaneous! Each time i applied it, he began to yawn  and snuggle into me for reassurance.  I was amazed. His time to travel arrived, and as before, I applied the essence regularly, and told him what was happening. He was reasonably co-operative in loading, and this was achieved without any drama (a miracle with a male donkey.) I gave a bottle of the mix to his new owners, and they reported that all arrived safely.

I also need to stress that i also tool liberal doses myself, as i had some trepidation about parting with these beautifuf animals.

Thanks to the essences, a difficult situation was resolved .

My Gran is 99. She lives in a lovely home where she has access to 24 hour care. She’s amazing for her age – still walks around (with a walking frame) though some days she’s a bit wobbly on her feet. Some days she sleeps a lot, some days she’s very vague and asks the same question over and over, some days she’s angry and accusing everyone of stealing things, and she rummages through her drawers and turns her space into chaos, some days she wanders off and has the staff frantically searching for her, and some days she’s very lively and chats and jokes. It’s a delight having her in our lives still; she’s the grandmother everyone wishes they’d had.

When I visited her on Tuesday, she was asking how all the family is and I gave her a little catchup. My mum had just heard from a family member who isliving and working in Texas, and has a new lady friend, and I laughingly gave Gran that information. She was immediately concerned about it – the family member in question was the widowed husband of my cousin, let’s call her Mary. My stomach froze, and then hit my feet – I’d completely forgotten that we’d decided 18 months beforehand to not tell my Gran about Mary’s passing! So she was understandably upset that Mary’s husband had a girlfriend!

Gran and Mary were very close, though they’d spent the previous 15 years in different hemispheres of the planet. Mary was the eldest grandchild, and she and my gran had spent many years in very close contact. Mary had a turbulent relationship with her mother, and had often wished Gran had been her mother instead. Anyway… when Mary passed suddenly from a brain aneurism, we decided to not tell Gran because of the distress we knew it would cause her, at the time she was rather unwell, and any time she asked about Mary we simply said she was in England, and she was happy.

But on this particular Tuesday, I forgot!

Gran was, as we’d expected she would be, immediately and painfully very upset. I was upset, Mum was upset, but she spoke about what had happened and why we’d decided that, and she did seem to accept it. At 99, many people, including siblings, children, grandchildren and a great-grandchild have passed from this life. I felt very guilty and upset, and Mum thought it was probably the best thing that Gran knew finally.

So on Thursday when I went to see her again, I took a bottle of Crisis Calm. Gran was at the hairdresser, but she was weeping as the poor hairdresser tried to do her hair. She had remembered that morning that Mary had passed and the home had phoned Mum to tell her Gran was very upset, just a minute or two before I picked her up for our visit.

As soon as we got there, I gave Gran seven drops of Crisis Calm. The hairdresser wrapped Gran’s head in a towel and we walked her back to her room. The emotional upset had affected her physically, she was very very wobbly on her feet, and mum and I were both in tears at my Gran’s pain. I sat and held her hand while mum went to talk to the nurses about Gran seeing the doctor for a sedative, which they thought was a good idea.

Ten minutes later I gave Gran another dose of Crisis Calm. And ten minutes later another dose. By which time the head nurse had come in and saw a calm, rational but sad woman, talking about her grand daughter who had passed, and how much she’d loved her.

Still, ten minutes later I gave her another dose, and she was more herself again. Mum and I stayed and tidied Gran’s dresser drawers, and tossed out a lot of old magazines etc that she hoards., and she was laughing and reminiscing about the photos we dug out of the magazines and reinserted into her photo albums.  The staff were amazed as they’d seen her distress.

When we left I gave the staff the bottle of Crisis Calm and they assured me they would give her more in the evening, and again in the morning, and more if she needed it. Oh, I might say I took a dose or two myself, and gave some to Mum!

I’m seeing Gran again this afternoon, and taking a blend to support her liver meridian, which is so stressed under grief.

And as I said to Annie, I am *so* grateful to have these amazing essences in my life, to support and heal me and my family when we most need it.

What a blessing….

Flea Spray

  • 20mls Neem Oil to
  • One litre water
  • 7 drops Lavender Oil
  • 7 drops Mint [or mint leaves]
  • 7 drops Lemon Oil.
  • 7 drops Blue Mink and Macaranga

Combine all ingredients. Shake well before use.

Either use a spray bottle or wipe on fur with a cloth soaked in solution

Insect Repellant

  • 2 handful  Wormwood
  • 1 handful Rue
  • ½ handful Rosemary

Powder dry herbs and place in jar. Fill with Safflower Oil [Olive] plus 1tsp Apple Cider Vinegar.

Place in sunlight, shake twice daily. Do not remove Herbs. This takes about a month to mature [less for Australia and in summer]

Into 3.5 ounces (100ml) of this mix, add ½  teaspoon Eucalyptus + 1tsp Oil and seven drops Crisis Calm and Macaranga.

Shake bottle well. Moisten a piece of cloth, pour oil onto this. Wipe on fur, may be repeated every five hours if needed.

Borax

This is another inexpensive and useful treatment for home and sleeping places and most supermarkets sell it.

For inside use, put into a shaker bottle and sprinkle all over carpets, leave for as long as possible an hour or two would be great, then vacuum and burn the bag.

Outside, you need to damp down the area first; this brings fleas to the surface. then sprinkle on powder, after a couple of hours damp down again with seven drops of Lomandra added to water to  clear toxicity, and stop powder residue from blowing away.

Cedar Wood

Fleas and insects hate cedar wood, you can mix seven drops in atomizer bottle with 100 ml water and seven drops Lomandra.

Spray your animal’s bedding and let dry.  Or make up larger quantities to spray around their kennel or sleeping places.

This mix can be sprayed around the skirting boards and edge of carpets for inside.

Inside in my cupboards, pantry, under furniture etc, I keep the little wooden balls and put on new oil when they have no more smell.

Diatomaceous Earth

This is a fine powder used in swimming pool filters. The ground-up coral acts to eat the wax coating off the fleas and they can’t jump, when they can’t jump they can’t breed.

It is great to sprinkle on carpets and floors leave for a couple of hours, then vacuum and burn vacuum bag if possible.

Use outdoors the same way as Borax (above), but with Lomandra, but wear a mask when initially sprinkling as it is so fine it could irritate airways.

This is about Alex, a young man aged 24. He has had a long history of insomnia, and presented to me initially for hypnosis.

This young man has a series of problems that he knows he needs to address.  He lives at home with his parents, and the dynamics within the family unit are challenging. His mother reported that he has always had difficulty settling, since he was an infant. During our initial consultation, we established that his underlying issue was fear of going to sleep.

I initially prescribed Crisis Calm to be taken regularly, and as needed at bed time, as a means of addressing his adrenal overload, related to the underlying, but ever-present fear. This was combined with Blue Mink to assist with the feeling of being threatened.

The next visit, he reported that he had been sleeping better, but not as well as he wanted. He reported that he would wake during the night and not be able to return to sleep. He did however appear to have had a shift in his energy pattern to a more peaceful state. He was less guarded in his responses to question, and was more relaxed generally.

Whenever the subject of sleep arose, his energy changed dramatically, and I saw a frightened little boy.

After long discussion, I prescribed Lantana , and Cordyline as he has a dependent relationship with his mother who is over protective, and an ambivalent relationship with his father. These two were combined with Cassia as a means of addressing his fear, and to promote his self reliance.

This has been a major turning point in this young man’s life. He is more positive, and outgoing. He reports that he has addressed issues at his work tat he previously has avoided. He is also going to embark on overcoming his fear of driving, which will be a hugely liberating process. I expect to be seeing more of Alex as we work through his issues. He is now sleeping well, and after we accessed a past life experience with hypnosis, and dealt with it, he no longer has the fear that has plagued him all his life.

He is a convert to Flower essences, and it is only through the clearing and balancing work of the essences that he had the courage to attempt the regression process, and gain his freedom.

Well the storms last week were a good chance to try out Crisis Calm on the dogs.

I have a young pup that hasn’t seen any in his lifetime; he has decided that thunder needs to be barked at, really to be told off for disturbing the peace.

As this was during the night I didn’t take the plunge across the yard to the dog runs, the next morning anything that resembled thunder got barked at, so I started him on some Crisis Calm essence and also put some in an Atomiser bottle and sprayed him and the other dogs, so they were all the same.

By lunch time and a few doses later [every time he barked] he was pretty good.

Later on when I filled their water dishes I put some in and also misted their runs, I am sure the older dogs were grateful as well as they don’t like the storms much, but they don’t bark all night, [Wispa take note, Kirrah and Sy like their sleep].

I misted their runs that night as well and left a bottle over at the runs and didn’t need to go over and give an extra dose.

I have used flower essences for many years in the water bowls, especially if the storm season is around and I have to go out, and misting works well too.

Meta Robins – October 2009

Anne is a client that I have been treating for some time; she had a marriage breakdown about four years ago and has suffered with depression, various physical ailments as well as a very poor body image, low self esteem, a broken heart and was not able to stand up for herself anymore.

We decided that she would take Bleeding Heart as a single essence; Body Love and Woman Worth were also given to her.

She takes Bleeding Heart twice a day and Body Love and Woman Worth she takes on a rotating basis or whatever bottle she feels that she is drawn to at any particular time. Sometimes she still has to have dealings with her now ex- husband and I had given her Crisis Calm, which she takes before having to have dealings with her ex- husband.

The next time she saw me she has reported that she doesn’t have any feeling for her ex-husband at all, even finding him repulsive. There had been some ‘cutting remark’ made by him and she stood up for herself and actually told him a few ‘home truths’ and constantly told me how amazed she was as she has never stood up to him before, as she has been a previous client I know this has been the case and she had many other essences from me since the break-up. She has been under weight since the break-up and has been constantly under medical supervision for adjustments to prescribed medication. At her last visit, a little over a month has passed and she has also gained weight, reports that she is enjoying food again [sometimes] and she is feeling better about herself. This is starting to show in her appearance as well.

At this point in time she wants to stay on Body Love and Woman Worth and has another Bottle of Crisis Calm. She is still taking them on the basis of the one she is drawn to at any given time, I do not feel that there needs to be a structured way for her to take them as it is also giving her choices and teaching her to listen to her intuition. She also has decided to have a bottle of Vital Energy. A lot of symptoms that she has would be very similar to Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, so with this added to her collection, she is looking forward with much more optimism, instead of just ‘going through the motions’.

I am pleased with her progress and look forward to our next visit.

Evelyn is a 45 year old woman who has been treated for re-occurring digestive problems, which causes weight gain and discomfort with gas. Lower back pain has been treated with Bowen Therapy and chiropractic-massage.

She has complaints about her body image now, which is bothering her because she has just started a new job as a manager and wants to present a good image to her staff. As this is a new system they are working with, it is often frustrating, with new staff adjustments, requiring her to put in extra hours at work as well as a lot of paperwork. This is making her very tired and then she has trouble sleeping when she does get to bed.

I prescribed Vital Energy for her which she takes to work and leaves on her desk to remind her to take when she is getting tired as well as Crisis Calm to help with the emotional aspects of her job.

I then prescribed Dandelion for her to help her liver and tiredness, Black Nightshade to help with body image, tiredness, Lomandra also for liver and to help with the co-operation aspects she needs with her new staff. This will also raise her immune levels, [to most things that go on].

After two weeks there have been dramatic changes both in her work and with her staff, who are now diving into her office to pinch her Crisis Calm whenever they need it.

She decided she would put a bottle of Crisis Calm, Vital Energy, Woman Worth and Body Love in the lunch room where they are all free to take them when ever they like. Fiona has put some little plastic shot glasses next to them and they put their drops in then add some water.

When she goes home on a Friday she takes whatever needs to be topped up and returns them on Monday. One female staff member was under review from Evelyn’s boss because of her attitude and Evelyn suggested she take Body Love and when he came back 10 days later her wanted to know what Evelyn had done to her as he said ‘it is like you have a different person working for you’. It looks as if she will keep her job.

Evelyn herself has reported that she is coping better and has not put on any further weight and at her last Bowen treatment, the therapist has noticed a change in her liver and spleen functions.

She likes the idea of having the other essences at work for her staff and she has even noticed the guys taking them, but she didn’t ask what one they were taking.

She is finding that she is getting into a better routine with her sleeping and not mulling over the day before she goes to sleep.
