Plants have always been the primary source of healing substances for mankind. The ancient--day Shaman inherited a wealth of knowledge about plants and their medicinal uses from his forefathers. Plants growing in the wild offered abundant variety and powerful tonics for early man’s use in healing. Modern pharmaceutical companies systematically study and test plants for new drug development programs. To this day, plants provide far more beneficial drugs than do manmade synthetic preparations. The race is on to find rare plants in the jungles of the Amazon for pharmaceutical uses before they are lost forever through extinction.

Plants have a unique physical nature that we depend upon for food and nourishment, for important material and chemical components, for building and clothing needs, and for powerful medicinal properties and healing powers.

Yet beyond these obvious applications a deeper appreciation of the power of plants is arising. As we increase our understanding of the holistic, irreducible nature of the universe and all living systems, it is indisputable that plant life functions on many sophisticated and subtle levels.

Plants are sentient beings; they feel and move. They constantly respond to the surrounding environment. Sensitive experiments dating from the 1920’s show that plants possess a nervous system. Polygraphs demonstrate that plants respond to human thought and speech. These “simpler” forms possess a life force and this has important implications for us. Plants and people share in the divinity of the grand design of nature.

One of the most famous and respected names associated with the unique use of plants in healing is Dr. Edward Bach of England (1886 - 1936). Edward Bach discovered that certain flowering plants are able to alleviate human emotional and physical problems. Bach learned to extract the essence or vibratory imprint from particular flowers and to transfer this energy imprint into pure water which can then be ingested orally or absorbed sublingually. These nonmaterial essences are vibrational medicine and function as healing energy. The flower essences work on the multidimensional mind-body-spirit being. Each healing flower offers unique benefits. Eventually, Bach identified and prepared 38 healing flower remedies. (See Table I). Long before Bach, ancient tribes in South America similarly found native flowers useful for soothing physical, emotional and psychological illnesses.

Table I: Some Healing Flowers and associated Emotions/Benefits

The flower essences work to balance, unblock and harmonize the various subtle and fine energy systems of the body-mind-spirit being. They are gentle and effective in helping people change and heal.

An exciting new development has surfaced in recent years that allows the direct application of the flower essences through sound frequencies bypassing the physical flower altogether. In this novel approach, the same marvelous benefits that many have long enjoyed via the traditional waterborne flower essences can be quickly and effectively bestowed through sound.

Pioneers such as Sharry Edwards and Dr. Royal Rife studied, measured and derived vibrational energies for healing. Eventually, sound healers identified exact wavelengths of sound to address specific ailments.

The precise mechanisms are not totally understood, but as with other vibrational healing, the application holistically benefits the spirit and the mind to promote self-healing. The emotional benefits are inseparable from the overall healing process. At the deepest level everything (and everyone) is energy, and energy heals directly!

A revealing example of the nature of sound in healing is reported by Sharry Edwards. Niacin is a vitamin that is necessary for life. Supplements can be taken to alleviate a deficiency in niacin. .Flushing of the skin often occurs with the use of niacin supplements. Edwards found that when the frequency equivalent of niacin is administered using only sound waves, the same nutritional benefit is achieved. Astonishingly, the skin flushing also occurs. As reported above, the benefits of the flower remedies can be passed directly through the use of sound. The author has composed complete "Healing Flower Music" symphonies that employ the sound frequency equivalent of the associated soul flower to extend the benefits of the flower essences. The characteristic flower frequency is embedded in a complex musical composition.

The listener receives the frequency of the flower essence (like taking the vial of the flower essence). The music on top of the flower frequency creates a particular emotion, making the experience much more powerful than just taking the flower essence alone.

Each flower has a specific pitch which is its vibratory essence. We don’t hear the flower sounds because the volume is too soft for our ears to pick up. Research from physicists suggest that some of the frequencies that impact us the most are very soft and subtle frequencies, as those below our hearing range. Dr. Robert Becker believes that these subtle frequencies travel on our perinueral tissue system and affect our consciousness.

Therefore, the frequency need not be loud or isolated. The body is adept at incorporating subtle frequencies. The multidimensional musical composition of a flower symphony begins by first expressing the negative emotion that the flower energy addresses. Listening to the negative aspect offers a sense of catharsis to loosen and clear emotional blockages. People can be so overwhelmed by negative energies that they cannot receive positive energies until the emotional baggage is cleared.

The symphony then plunges into the positive emotional transformation. This positive movement uplifts the listener and uses the accompanying flower frequency to provide intense emotional transformation and healing. The experience offered by the combination of the healing flower essence together with the musical encounter present in the symphony can produce a powerful, healing state that impacts physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual energies.

For those who live in a dreamy, not-fully-awake or alert state, the clematis flower is the remedy. The clematis is the reality flower essence. The clematis symphony continually beats out the flower's frequency. On top of this track, the overarching music begins with a rhythmic breath. The breath becomes the percussion beat, combined with pleasing, diffuse tones to create a state of dreaminess. Foggy tones and echoes muffle clarity. As the song continues, clear, melodic tones evoke the warmth of the sun and beckon the soul to awaken, to see more clearly and to dance in the glory of the fully awakened light.

The mimulus, known as the "bravery flower" alleviates fears of illness, pain, accident, poverty, loneliness and misfortune. This flower offers relief to people struggling to master their fears. The mimulus symphony begins with creepy, fearful music and a scary hiss. The music reaches a crescendo and gradually transforms to build trust through a rhythmic framework based on the sound of a reassuring heartbeat, a sound that has been with us our entire lives. Ultimately, a strong, confident song sings out, washing over listeners and dissolving their fears.

The benefits of the healing flower essences have been widely utilized by people since ancient times to gain a gentle emotional lift or helpful resolution. There now exists a totally vibrational energy pathway to the same blessings based on listening to the frequency equivalent of the desired flower. Specially designed music provides even greater benefits. People report extraordinary results when they simultaneously listen to the flower symphonies and take the flower essences in the traditional manner.

The transformation of sentient plant energy to pure vibrational energy is based on the oneness of all living entities and all energies. We need to care for and preserve nature so we can enjoy the essence of a simple wildflower to help fill our deepest emotional needs.
