Bach Essences Go Hollywood

Posted by admin on Apr 24, 2010

By Deborah Bier, PhD, Vibration Editor

Have you ever read a book, or watched a television show or movie and thought, “Wow, wasn’t THAT a Rescue Remedy moment!?” or “Wouldn’t I like to give that character some Heather!” Well, here’s your chance.


We have a half-dozen very famous movie lines below, plus a Bach flower remedy that reflects a need displayed within the quote. In some cases, the remedy is obvious from the quote, and in others you have to know something about the movie to see the connection.

Can you come up with some yourself? Don’t feel you need to stay with the Bach remedies — but do include  the essence manufacturer’s name as well as the movie where the quote can be found. List your entries in comments.

“We’ll always have Paris.” Honeysuckle (Casablanca)

“I want to be alone.”  Water Violet (Grand Hotel)

“Frankly, my dear, I don’t give a damn.” Wild Rose (Gone with the Wind)

“Toto, I’ve got a feeling we’re not in Kansas anymore.” Clematis (Wizard of Oz)

“I could have been a contender!” Gentian (On the Waterfront)

“As God is my witness, I’ll never go hungry again!” Oak (Gone with the Wind)

Dear Tabby: Things You’d Rather Your Cat Didn’t Know

Posted by admin on Apr 17, 2010

Vibration’s editors ruefully note: Along with blogs and websites all over, we’re celebrating National Humor Month.  As if it weren’t bad enough that Pansy Rose Pepperplant showed up, now she’s stirred up a formidable sometime staffer, Dear Tabby, a conceited, overbearing feline that haunts our offices at times and dispenses advice to her fellow felines.  You should hear the cat-er-wauling!

Dear Tabby,
I have been sitting here all day watching my person twist and turn herself into a tourniquet all in the name of yoga. Isn’t there an easier way to find inner peace? We used to cuddle together on the couch, but now, all she wants to do is practice, practice, practice! When she can’t seem to get the position just right, she tries it over and over and over. This repetitive tizzy is making me dizzy! Seems that she just can’t learn from her mistakes!

Not like us, eh? Of course, cats never make mistakes in the first place! Why doesn’t she just watch me? I can teach her to catch her tail! So, what are my options here, Tabby? I’m not a kitty without pity, but I’m at my wits end! What can I do to cat-ch her attention? Should I just continue to purr through my pain? Or is there an essence I can give my guardian that will help her find sanctuary while I keep my sanity!
Sigh-ned, Pitter Patty (Going Batty!)

Dear Pitter Pat,

Ahhhh… join me in a deep clea Read the rest of this entry »

A Cackle for Articles: Essences for Chickens

Posted by admin on Apr 10, 2010

By Deborah Bier, PhD, Publish and Co-Editor of this Blog, and Chicken-Keeper-to-Be

Chick starter feed? Check. Brooder (a large cardboard box)? Check.  Baby-sized chicken waterer? Check. Warming light? Check. Brooder thermometer? Litter for the brooder (shredded paper)? Chick grit? Check, check and check. Flower essences??!  Well, probably… check.

21328272.thbAs part of our ongoing household sustainability experiment, at home we are busy answering the question, “Given our resources, just how much food can we produce at home?”  As part of that effort we will begin keeping chickens this Spring for eggs, manure, insect control, and amusement.

We’re expecting six newly-hatched arrivals around May 10 — two each from three heritage breeds of chicken, all cold-hardy to withstand our New England winters. If my math is correct,  the eggs that will become our baby chicks should start to be incubated around April 15th (can we claim them as dependents for tax purposes??! shucks, probably not…).  In other words: I’m such a new chicken keeper, my chickens are still a glimmer in some rooster’s (or artificial inseminator’s) eye.

Hiiiiiii everyone!!! I just happened to swing by to see what was up. I hadn’t heard from the editors of Vibration for well over a year now. They said they’d contact me for a new article the next time they put out an issue of the ezine, but then they never did.

Come to find out now, THEY CHANGED THEIR FORMAT TO A BLOG over a year ago!  They said they just CHERRY PLUM forgot to let me know. Well, I did change my address a lot (and my name a few times, too…) so even if they tried, maybe they woulda never reached me. Well, things are like that a LOT in my life!!  Queen of Walnut, they call me! Don’t get me started… Read the rest of this entry »
