No Bull: New Confusion About Essences

Posted by admin on Jun 18, 2011

By Deborah Bier, PhD, Publisher and Co-Editor of Vibration Magazine

Just when we thought we had seen it all — all the many confusions about what vibrational and flowers essences are and are not — we have been proven wrong. We marvel that there are still new ways to think they are something else!

20250582.thbAs all of us who use or make vibrational and flower essences know, they are not essential oils/scented as used in aromatherapy; nor are they flavorings for food, such as vanilla extract.  Now we have to assert that they are also not energy drinks!

We believe this confusion comes from our constant harping on the fact that essences do not contain the physical parts of whatever they’re made from — they only contain energy. Thus the email we received recently. Read the rest of this entry »


No Orchids were Harmed in Making These Essences!

If you grow orchids, you will know that it can be a long wait sometimes to see a particular plant come into bloom. In some cases, this can be a matter of years. And when the blooms appear, their majesty is astonishing. It is perhaps at this point that the wish to find the means to make a flower essence without having to cut the bloom becomes most poignant.

purityofheart-livingtreeThough I know several essence makers who have cut orchid blooms to make essences, I cannot countenance the idea myself. There simply is no need to cut an orchid if you wish to make an essence; and in my view, it will be a more vibrant essence if the plant has not been harmed.

Living Tree Orchid Essences are made on the Isle of Gigha, Scotland, about three hours from Glasgow. We do not cut the blooms or harm the plants in any way in order to make our essences. In this, we follow the method of Vasudeva and Kadambi Barnao of Living Essences of Australia. Read the rest of this entry »


Recovering Our Greatest Strengths Following Disaster, Illness or Injury

Posted by admin on Apr 2, 2011

By Deborah Bier, PhD, maker of the Whole Energy Essences and Co-Editor of this publication.

Here’s a little ray of sunshine to add to your day: no matter what we do or how much we wish otherwise, it’s likely that someday we each will experience illness or injury — maybe even a disaster or two. While such events may eventually help us grow and improve our lives, living through them and coming out the other side can take some doing.

Johnny JumpupThank goodness for vibrational and flower essences! They can speed the recovery process, letting us more quickly make tasty lemonade out of the sour lemons life has delivered to our doorstep. Regardless of the origin of the acute or chronic situation, if we are in an emotional and/or physical crisis, we can easily lose touch with our sense of “center” — which is right where our greatest strengths live and work best. The trauma of mass disaster, or significant illness or injury commonly disconnects us from our strengths, abilities, gifts, and talents. During or following an illness or recovery from an injury, we may find ourselves losing confidence in our previously solid abilities. We may suddenly feel unsafe or unsure. We might grow to distrust ourselves, particularly our physical or mental capabilities. We may lose touch with our inner voice, our sense of “knowing.” Read the rest of this entry »


World Wide Prayer Effort for Japan’s Waters–Thursday, March 31st at Noon

Posted by admin on Mar 30, 2011

Editors’ note:  This prayer request is circling the globe via email, and we wanted to pass it along to Vibration readers who would be willing to join in.

Hi everyone,

Dr Masaru Emoto, the premiere Japanese scientist and water researcher,globeinhandblunoatsm-a2d
is asking all citizens of Mother Earth to focus with intent to transform the dangerous Nuclear problem that is continuing to develop in Japan.
High amounts of radiation has contaminated large amounts of water at one of the power plants and is starting to get into the environment.

Dr Emoto knows the power and ability of water to heal, transmute, transfigure, and purify toxins as demonstrated in his best selling series of books “The Hidden Messages in Water”.

So on Thursday, March 31st, at Noon, in each time zone,
he is requesting that as many of us as possible to perform the following simple prayer and invocation 3 times with our hands in the prayer position:

“The water at Fukushima Nuclear Plant,
we are sorry to make you suffer,
please forgive us,
we thank you and we love you.”

The power of this simple prayer formula has been demonstrated many times, in particular by the Hawaiian psychologist and kahuna Dr Ihaleakala Hew Len, who used this prayer to successfully heal all the mental patients in the entire ward at the Hawaiian State Metal Hospital during his time working there, as described in the book “Zero Limits” by Joe Vitale.
Dr Hew Len never counseled or spoke to any of the patients.
He just studied the patients files and went within himself and did the prayer process.

See Dr Emoto’s message at http://emotopeaceproject.blogspot.com

I hope you can join us.
Spread the word.

Ethnobotany Data: Flower Essence Producers

Posted by admin on Jan 29, 2011

Editors’ Note: Back in July, 2010, Vibration Magazine published a request for flower essence practitioners to participate in graduate student, Erin Galiger’s masters’ thesis research in the field of Ethnobotany through University of Kent, at Canterbury (UK). She promised to share the data with participants, and she also sent a copy to Vibration.  She has kindly permitted us to publish portions of it here.  Find the intro to this series of posts here; find more of her data published here on Vibration here and here.

By Erin Galiger, M.Sc. Ethnobotany

As shown in the table below, the majorities of the respondents were female, and aged 46-59.  All of the U.S. producers have been practitioners while 5 out of 8 of the U.K. producers had at one time been practitioners.  Although there are less U.K. and U.S. producers who have remained practitioners, the data suggests that those who produce flower essences tend also to be practitioners.  Many producers practice other forms of CAM, with a higher frequency in U.S. producers.

Ethnobotany Data: Who are Flower Essence Practitioners?

Posted by admin on Jan 8, 2011

21191184.thbFlower essence practitioner personal information

Given that 77 out of 80 practitioner questionnaire respondents were female, a fair argument can be made that the practice of Flower Essence Therapy (FET) is currently dominated by females in the U.S. and U.K.  Seventy-three out of eighty (91%) of all flower essence practitioners practice other Complementary and Alternative Medicine (CAM) modalities.  These CAM modalities include Reiki, Aromatherapy, Homeopathy, Naturopathy, Herbalism, Chiropractic, Shamanic healing, Yoga, and various other energy healing modalities.

Flower Essence Ethnobotany Data Results

Posted by admin on Dec 18, 2010

Back in July, 2010, Vibration Magazine published a request for flower essence practitioners to participate in graduate student, Erin Galiger’s masters’ thesis research in the field of Ethnobotany through University of Kent, at Canterbury (UK). She promised to share the data with participants, and she also sent a copy to Vibration.  She has kindly permitted us to publish portions of it 19957765.thbhere, which we will do over the next month or so.

In discussing her research approach, Erin said to us: “Since FET hasn’t really been academically studied, a good overview and laying the foundation about such statistics and identifying core features would be a good start for others to potentially (hopefully!) build upon.  And research undertaken in so many disciplines.  Since I was under the umbrella of anthropology, I had to analyze data from that particular lens and delved into ethnomedical concepts.”

Sustainability Through Flower Essences

Posted by admin on Oct 9, 2010

©2010 Darla Graves Palmer

There are ever so many reasons why I’m drawn to flower essences, and one of them, I’ve realized recently, is because of how they fully support and embrace sustainability. In this time of ecological need, even a single flower can provide us with enough essence for thousands of doses.

7802225.thbWhen I was in school studying Ayurveda, the use of herbs is a major part of advanced therapeutics. And I like herbs! I use herbs and spices. I recommend them, too, in moderation, but usually along the lines of ‘food’ or nourishment — for taste, to enhance digestion, stimulate Agni, reduce Ama. For therapeutics, however, I generally prefer the energy remedies like flower essences, or their partners gem essences (or even homeopathic remedies or cell salts).

How many plants are grown in order to produce a tincture, dried herb or powder that provides very limited dosing and lasts X number of months or years? And yet, with the energy remedies, they can maintain their potency for many decades. That’s a tremendous difference when it comes to how we care for Mother Earth, and how we graciously accept her generosity. So, while herbs in their more gross state (dry, powder, tincture) are natural and necessary (and certainly have their place of use therefore I support their continued organic and ecologically-conscious cultivation), I do feel that our global future lies in the resonance and subtle energy of all life — including the move of vibrational remedies to the forefront of therapeutics and healing.
