Experimental Protocol for Seed Experiment

Posted by admin on Jan 23, 2010

By Deborah Bier, PhD

The photos I recently unearthed and published on this blog showing evidence of the effects of flower essences on seed germination got quite a bit of notice from around the world! Would you like to give this experiment a try yourself? Found in my files is the below experimental protocol we used during which the photos published a few weeks ago were taken (see http://www.floweressencemagazine.com/blog/?p=979 for the entire series of photos).  It is published here for the first time, both in response to questions about how we carried out this experiment, and with my wish that others will follow it using any essence of their choice to see what results they receive.

Sudden upsurges of despair and generalized turmoil like we’re experiencing just now are related to—BUT NOT CAUSED BY—current astrological conditions. As an astrologer who has studied planetary patterns for over 40 years, I’m sensitive to the prevailing cosmic winds. Slow-moving astrological conditions, some lasting as much as two years, shed light on our collective experience and major changes in the world. Astrological insights, combined with pertinent flower essences, can help us make progress despite the stresses and strains. Read the rest of this entry »

Pussytoes Essence: Recover Surrender

By Deborah Bier, PhD, maker of the Whole Energy Essences

I received an email recently from an essence customer who purchased a Whole Energy Essences Recovery Essence set and couldn’t find a description for Pussytoes in the book we  sent along with it (an earlier edition of The Encyclopedia of Vibrational Essences).  That was because Pussytoes was a late addition to complete this set, and I never got around to writing an entry!

But suddenly, I felt the urge to write it.  Looking through my research notes, I could see why: it is actually a “fleur du jour” — a term used by my Vibration co-editor, Donna Cunningham. This expression refers to any essence that keeps being indicated again and again across many people because it is a reflection of a larger cosmic, impersonal need of the moment. (See her article about this concept here: http://www.essences.com/vibration/june98/fleurjour.html) Read the rest of this entry »

In Vibration’s 11 years of publishing quarterly issues of our flower essence ezine, there were certain topics that came up over and over. One of them was children and how they respond to flower essences.babyflwrs-a2d

Many of our authors found that children seemed to instinctively love them and that they often responded more quickly and positively to essence work than adults do. They hadn’t built up as many layers of defenses and of encrusted negative behaviors as wounded adults had done.

We dedicated several special issues of Vibration to children and eventually collected them into one of our Virtual Booklets. Below are links to some articles on this topic that we especially liked: Read the rest of this entry »
