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.

Sarah is a 30yr old new mum and she has a long history of allergies to foods and was consequently brought up in a very ‘smother love’ situation in her family home by her mother.

She has tried many prescribed medications for her allergies as well as some natural treatments, usually resulting in them ‘making her sick’, so she stops taking them.

Sarah was referred to me as she is breast feeding her baby and doesn’t want to take anything to jeopardise her feeding the baby or to affect the baby. She has been very tired with broken nights with the new bub.

I prescribed Lantana for the ‘smother love’ and the guilt that she feels as she can’t go running every time her mother wants her. Also Vital Energy to help with her energy levels and tiredness.

When I saw Sarah two weeks later she was really happy to report that a change had happened with the way she was with her mother and that she not longer felt obliged to try to see her mother. She felt she was able to go to her place with out fear of reprisal for not being there everyday. She even feels that she now likes to just ‘drop in’ sometimes. She is not so tired and has adopted a more comfortable routine with the baby and both of them are getting more sleep.

Sarah is in a situation where every second week, she and her partner have his two children from a previous marriage for a week, this has caused her some concern as she wants to be really confident with his children as well. I suggested Woman Worth which she took for over two weeks and she has been able to sit down with the oldest daughter and explain that she didn’t want to take her mother’s job, but she would like her to know that she would be her friend and if she had any concerns she could talk to her in confidence. This has worked really well and it seems as if the young girl has accepted Sarah on a different level now and they are both very comfortable with each other. That young girl asked Sarah about the essences and wanted something for stress, so she was given a bottle of Blue Mink and she has relayed to Sarah that she doesn’t feel so pressured now.

This was presented as a long standing prolapse that at times can cause discomfort.

The Essences given were Acacia, Cassia and Dandelion after a couple of days of taking the essences a slight tugging was felt around the pelvic region, not so much uncomfortable but just noticeable, this continued for a few days. After a massage and adjustment it was brought to consciousness the extremely difficult time that was experienced when giving birth some 37 years previously as well as other things that were involved in the experience at that time. After then finishing the Essences there is very little sign of the prolapse and there has been no discomfort since then either.

Body Love was made into a mist bottle and has been sprayed around the pelvic region and lower back; there has been a history of lower back pain as well as damage to that region from an accident as well as from the birth experience all those years ago. Also a dose bottle was made and has been taken twice a day. The pain and discomfort has lessened to minimal after many years of being a constant pain or ache.

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.
