The need to rest:
Bach Flowers are like a mirror for me. I often draw them intuitively and they reveal important aspects of my current situation. Last month, for example, was a busy month and I needed so much energy to cope with everyday life. With an unsettled baby at night (teething...) and a big chaos in the apartment (moving...) I found it hard to take a break.
Remember to breath deeply
Especially when personal time is rare, Bach Flowers help me to keep my emotional balance (or to find it again and again). The Bach Flower Olive supported me then to focus on getting enough rest. After taking the remedy for some days I found it easier to relax. I was able to breathe deeper and sleep better. Oh, and the baby was also calmer when I was taking it slow (who would have thought... !)
Olive: The Bach Flower for regeneration
Olive is the Bach Flower for regeneration. It helps us to understand how we spent our energy. We burn out when we are just giving away too much without getting enough rest to fill our well. This imbalance leads to exhaustion in the long term.
When I take Olive I kind of remember how it feels to rest. That makes it easier to actually give myself a break to recharge. I can let go of the urge to get things done. I can accept that I need to take it slow.
Even by writing this I get calmer. Can you feel it too?
It is not necessary to take the Bach Flower remedy to connect with their energy. It helps just to read about them or to look at pictures.
Such a blessing!
Wishing you restful and calm moments,
