Reiki is a strong form of energy work for healing, and, as a Reiki Master, I find that Reiki and flower essences complement each other well.  Reiki provides a deep and gently relaxing experience during which the client’s own healing mechanisms are activated.

If taken for a period of time after a Reiki session, the essences can continue to facilitate the ongoing release of blockages and imbalances. Read the rest of this entry »

Did you know there are ethical and unethical ways in which essences may be diluted and given or sold to someone who did not purchase the original stock essences?

Buying Essences at the Stock vs. Dosage–Which are You Getting?

There are several different ways that people can do “flower essence readings.” These are widely varied in method — and if you or someone you know does such readings, we’d like to hear how you go about it in the comments section of this article. I’ve developed a method I refer to as “flower essence story telling.”

At the start of a session, I may or may not have heard the person’s tale — I might just do this reading “cold” without any information about their situation.  Some people would not find what I say in the essence story to be valid if I know anything their problems ahead of time… it’s a kind of test they want to put me through.  However, it’s a lot more rich if I am allowed to hear them talk about what’s going on in their lives first; we can go deeper into understanding their challenges that way.
