Functions- Organizing

You are fixing up marriage of your daughter or organizing a birthday celebration. What are the remedies that can help the function to go smoothly and without a hindrance in any form? The hindrance when a marriage is fixed, say for example could be in the form of somebody’s death.

We might have some specific states of mind like for example, “Everybody should eat well, everybody should have fun” and so on.

Sweet chestnut : To conduct any function smoothly, you need Sweet Chestnut (Divine) has to be there.

Walnut : People attending the function adjust to the situation comfortably.

Gentian: There should not be any regression. There has to be only progress once you start organizing the function and execute your action steps. Everything should go on well without any regression. GENTIAN is the remedy for that.

Rescue Remedy: Children might get hurt during the function. You don’t want to spend your time taking them to hospital. In addition to four remedies mentioned above, add RESCUE REMEDY to avoid panic situations.

Fear of completion: HORNBEAM

Function - General Instructions

  1. All the four remedies are important. Once the date of the function is fixed, put them every day (5 pills each remedy) in common water and drink it.

  2. Also keep a glass of water with the combination (3 pills from each remedy) in the North East or on the West side of the house.

  3. To avoid children getting hurt, keep RESCUE REMEDY on the western side in a glass of water, as it is the side of relaxation. Then there will be no panic situation to be faced.

  4. We have reached the party hall. Wherever there is light, the darkness would follow. Spray the five remedies in the hall before people arrive at the hall.

  5. Approach the cook and give him a glass of water mixed with the combinations. Tell him the water is from sacred river Kasi as he may be a non-believer of Bach Flower Remedies. Ask him to add that water to the water he uses for cooking. Nobody would complain about taste. Food will be sufficient for everybody. Like Atchaiya Pathiram (vessel that contains unlimited food) it will be enough for everybody – as we won’t be able to predict how many will turn up for the function.

She chanted the combination. The time that was given to her was 3 pm. The healers before got fewer marks facing the same language problem.

Marriage - whether the person is right or not.

Before the bride groom comes to see the girl, Sweet Chestnut will help us to find whether the person is right or not. Put it in a glass of water and keep it in the house or drink water.

A Punjabi girl and a Punjabi guy from UK were on talking terms. Lots of money spent was spent for the calls made and internet usage. The marriage was initiated. The guy said his parents may not agree as they belong to different sub sect and so suggested to get married first and then inform his parents. The girl agreed for this arrangement and not her mother. Both the daughter and the mother took Sweet Chestnut. After few days a call came from the guy’s number. The person called was his wife. She told them that he is a cheater. He has cheated quite a few girls like this. As she couldn’t escape she is hanging around with him. Then the girl did some verification and Punjabi address that the guy had given was wrong. She was given Star of Bethlehem (for the mental shock after she figured out the truth) and Chicory – pangs of love and love failure.

Marriage- Adjustment

If you splash Beech and Walnut in the room – then there will be no demands and will adjust to each other requirements and needs. For example: Nikitha – a Reiki Teacher. In her friend’s house sprayed water that is mixed with Beech and Walnut on all walls. During the meeting, the girl started singing. Then the groom joined her and later everybody joined the girl. In the end they mentioned that somehow they feel that all of them belong to the same family.

Marriage – Choice/ Unable to decide

Scleranthus: to choose between Vanaja and Girija.

Marriage- Coral – for disparity in love

A teacher loved her own student, and she is older than him by few years. Both of them took Coral. After a month they agreed to stop, as they realized that their mental compatibility is not good enough for the marriage to survive.
