Healing with Bach Flowers has grown out of a deep, loving regard for Dr Bach’s work and The Bach Flower Remedies he discovered and the healing system he set up using them. To consider their rightful position within the many supportive and positive treatments available to us, both in the field of Alternative or Complementary Medicine, and in the wider context of Integrated Medicine.
We see in the Healing processes of the Earth, wild creatures and plants, domesticated animals and crops, as well as with our human species that the ways of repair and healing are as complex as they are varied. There are many aspects of anyone’s healing journey that can vary greatly with the individual circumstances, and which can affect outcomes. Because Bach Flower Remedy treatment often touches on parts of who we are that are not normally addressed when treating illness I was drawn to broaden the concept of this approach to wellness.
My path to being with you here has included much talking, working, observing, learning, writing and teaching about the Bach Remedies. My stand-point regarding them and their part in the healing process grew out of love, enthusiasm and a passionate respect for them and what they can do! There are many wonderful things to discover in the world, and these natural essences are an aspect of that wonder. Strangely enough they can help us, even if we cannot recognise that wonder!
This site is centred around my work with the Flower Remedies, to introduce me and the approach I use and encourage their use for healing help, to understand the Remedies’ characters and ways, and towards empowerment for you and others. On this page there is some background information on me – Julie Murray and how I got to here.
I started this way of teaching about Bach Remedies in 1997. Life guided the way and landed me in front of 15 eager and experienced adult-students of Homeopathy and the job description was teaching ‘everything’ there was to know about Dr. Bach, his work, philosophy as well as inform them on Bach Remedies and then, also to talk about actually using them – all in 1 day! Practically, of course, this was an impossible task. It was an intense experience and only possible to attempt because many of these students had already been using Bach Remedies for a long time, privately and as part of their professional practice, so, in many ways we were not starting from scratch.
As the day progressed I found that information was coming – unexpectedly, and unbidden – through my mind and out of my mouth that was ‘new’ knowledge. Because I had the confidence of my background intimacy and experience around the Remedies and how they were understood thus far, I was aware of filtering the ideas on the way through my consciousness, recognising that this was taking the Flower Remedies to a different level of usefulness and accessibility.
It took encouragement from others wiser than myself, for me to step up to the plate, as they say and take this information further forward. Over the intervening years, and, not always alone on the journey, my confidence has increased with experience and gratitude for the potential and efficacy of these Healing Tools for change. And so quickly sometimes – that the resulting changes can just take your breath away!
