I received a phone call from a client that had been struggling with constant tiredness for almost 12 months. She had been constantly tired for no reason. Everything in her life seemed fine, otherwise. There was some stress at work but she said that that was pretty normal.
She’d been to the doctor and blood tests and a check of her thyroid all turned up no problems physically. She was seeing a naturopath and put on some herbs and supplements but still felt this tiredness. She’d been taking Bach Rescue Remedy without any change. She said she felt it was time to get in touch with me to get some change happening for these symptoms and have a remedy made for her.
While we were on the phone, I mentioned the concept of how when can have all the boxes ticked, but if we are not meeting our needs in the things we do in life, we can be left feeling flat and exhausted. I talked about her doing more things that would make her happy, and following her heart. She acknowledged that she has little in her life which is just for her to enjoy. She said that she had ‘done all the things she was meant to do’ by way of study, career, family, but had not necessarily considered what would make her happy. She said “No one ever tells you this kind of thing!”.
As well as suggesting she direct her attention toward happiness, I crafted a flower essence for her. In the process of tuning in to her, I got to see in more detail than before what was going on.
Her energy presented metaphorically in a scene where there with curtains that were shut. The space was stuffy, stagnant and dusty. The fabrics were thick. Her aspect in that space was laying on a bed and feeling queasy, hungry, thirsty and exhausted and seeking help. This aspect was needing replenishment and to have her cup filled, yet was too weak to actively seek this out.
There was a totally depleted part of her desperate for nourishment. And it was presenting in a way of “I am too exhausted to meet my needs, just tell me what I need and give it to me. Please.”
The blend I created for her clearly needed to be supportive of her energy state as well as encouraging her to go toward her heart’s calls. I intuited the following blend:
* Black-Eyed Susan – to encourage a focus back toward herself and her needs.
* Dog Rose Of The Wild Forces – to encourage calm and centredness despite turmoil around her.
* Old Man Banksia – to renew her interest and enthusiasm in life, versus ‘soldiering on’ in a life she doesn’t enjoy.
* Rough Bluebell – to enhance her self-compassion.
* Tall Yellow Top – to return back to the heart versus the head doing the driving.
* Waratah – for strength and courage to cope given this state of depletion.
* Wedding Bush – to encourage her to commit to herself, her life, and her heart’s desires.
She was to take 7 drops of this blend at a time, three times a day.
Two weeks after she began her essence blend, I messaged her to see how she was going.
She said “It took around three days for me to feel the effect of the drops. I take them three times a day, and have been feeling more energetic and open to things. Actually laughed wholeheartedly for the first time in a while the other night :)”.
She mentioned that what she noticed more obviously now was a slump in the afternoon. I recommended that she support her energy at those times with Heart Healing. This is also ‘cup filling’ and nourishing by way of her energy system and is a great complement to her essences blend.
I await further updates from my client and am pleased that she is beginning to feel more joyful, energised and open.
The importance of supporting our spirits, hearts and souls, along with our physical bodies cannot be understated. When we are not having our needs met and ‘cups filled’, we can also be impacted physically.
It should also be noted that even if there is nothing found to be wrong physically, that ongoing symptoms are not necessarily purely ‘in your head’ and it is essential to seek support of the energy system. We are a rich multi-faceted being and our path to wellness is also multi-faceted.
