FLOWERS & TRANSFORMATION – PART 2

September 28, 2014

Thank you for the beautiful comments + questions on the last post!
I’m really excited + it seems like a lot of you are getting intrigued as well.

I’ve been writing about methods to transform intense (disturbing) emotions …
And how most of us have one or more self-limiting beliefs running in the background without even knowing it!

When these false beliefs play out into some situation in our life, it becomes very painful.
My meditation teacher once said that when a thought that you have is super painful, it is usually because we are believing something that is not true.

There are three ways that false beliefs are instilled in us:

1. Genetic.
My flower essence teacher (and other energy medicine/quantum physics folks would agree) would say that we carry the thought patterns in our DNA of up to six generations back in our family lineage.

You might think your thoughts are your own + it turns out your grandmother + great, great grandfather had the same thoughts.

2. Upbringing.
When we’re young + impressionable, we learn from caregivers, friends + teachers (besides our family). Some of what we learn is really positive; some of what gets passed on to us are limiting beliefs.

3. Collective Consciousness.
Depending on what part of the world you live in, you are part of a unique collective consciousness. An entire group of people living in one area tend to think similarly due to culture, as well as having similar causes + conditions for situations in their lives.

For example, people living in the United States have their own set of patterns. When I visit other countries, I find it so curious that different cultures each have their own different combination of emotional/thought patterns. You see it play out in everyday interactions.

In the U.S. sarcasm is a common style of expressing humor. In Asia, sarcasm very rarely exists as a form of humor. I remember being in Taiwan with my close friend (who’s Taiwanese) + I cracked a sarcastic joke. She gave me a fierce look. And I realized that I must sound like a complete a**hole, in a culture where sarcasm doesn’t exist.

Sarcasm can often be a very subtle expression of being hard on oneself, for example when you make fun of yourself. But in a different culture where everyone is ultra sincere with their words, it doesn’t land correctly, because they don’t have the same collective thought patterns.

Or for example, in the U.S. we value being polite over being truthful. I remember posting a profile picture of myself on Facebook – everyone was commenting on how nice the photo was. A Tibetan Buddhist nun from Nepal who had lived at my house for years (but who is now in Nepal), commented on the photo: “You look fatter than before!”

I chuckled to myself, watching this cultural clash on Facebook. In Himalayan cultures, being truthful (+ accepting oneself as one is without shame) is valued over just simply being polite. And within the collective consciousness there, their feelings don’t get hurt by those kinds of comments, because they typically don’t have the same kinds of insecurities that Americans do.

So, in short, in doing flower essence therapy with hundreds of clients for over a decade in the U.S., I’ve found that most people have one or several of the following most common self-limiting beliefs:

I’m not good enough. / I don’t deserve it.
I can’t do it.
I can’t get what I want. / I’m worthless.
I don’t have what it takes. / I’m useless.
It’s a struggle. / It’s too hard.
I don’t belong.

These beliefs are usually buried in the subconscious. Most people don’t even know they exist on some level. They may affect your everyday behavior, but they were instilled at such a young age, that it’s like trying to see your own eyelashes.

These self-limiting beliefs can lead to occasional experiences of fear, self-limitation, attachment, feeling stuck, feeling like it’s impossible to accomplish what we want to, or that we don’t fit in.

There are flower remedies + methods to uproot each of these self-limiting beliefs.

Part of transforming how you feel at any given time is being aware of what state of mind you’re in. For just that reason we developed a section on our free iPhone/iPad app so you can track how you feel from day to day.

You don’t even have to be taking flower essences – just use the tracking system to ask you the questions closest to the area of your life that you want to be more aware of.

For example if you choose the Joy setting, each day at noon, you’ll be asked to move the toggle button from 1-10 where do you feel between worried + free, heavy + fun, complicated + simple, serious + laughter-filled. Then after several days, you can see any changes on the line graph that is tracking it all for you.

There’s also a journal section where you can take notes. Or, if you have an Android, there are eight different pdf journals that you can download here to track joy, peace, love, sleep, creativity + vitality.

In the beginning, when I was doing consultations full-time and I really felt that I was making a profound difference in people’s lives – I could really see clear transformations over time.

The kind of results I was seeing inspired me to develop products so that we could benefit more people around the world.

Then the business grew to a level that I could no longer provide consultations + even though customers write to us everyday with incredible stories of transformation, I still can’t help but wish I could do more.

Oftentimes I see people using flower remedies because they feel stressed. They take them when they feel stressed, but then when they feel better they stop taking them.

‘Feeling better’ is really only the first step in a beautiful self-discovery journey.

When you take flower elixirs consistently over time, even when you feel happy, clear + strong, they start to work on deeper + deeper levels, accelerating personal growth + magnifying strengths + talents you didn’t even know you had!

Remember that flower elixirs don’t require a lot of time, a gym membership or your life’s savings.

And the process of uprooting self-limiting patterns can be effortless + fun.
Everyone who uses flower remedies regularly experiences unique, but always impressive results.
The best way to see how flower elixirs will affect you is to try them out yourself.

That’s why I’ve got a special program in the works.

Hint: it has to do with limited edition flower elixirs specifically for transforming self-liming beliefs so that you can catalyze a huge positive impact in whatever area of your life you choose.

Be sure to look out for emails about it in the next few days, because it will only be available for a limited time.

If any of the above content struck a chord in you, or you have questions, I would be thrilled to see your comments here.

Love + flower petals,
Katie

I can’t believe the transformation in my life, since I started using the flower essences on a daily basis. My favorite development is how the teens that I work with have jumped on board. When I see them, I hear shouts of, “Miss Terri, I need some flower power!” So I will whip out my purse sized atomizer of Infinite Love and spray whomever asks. I feel like it’s a more tactile way of spreading the love to all my girls. Thanks for all you do, Katie! XO Terri
