Flower Essence: Mustard

We are well into the season of Spring.  More days of sunshine, more beauty displayed in blooming gardens, more time spent in the outdoors.  Just the thought of Spring can bring a smile and a feeling of happiness.  The season of shorter, gloomier days is behind us and longer days of clear, blue skies are our present reality. 

Then, unexpectantly and unexplainably, out of that beautiful, clear blue sky, comes such deep feelings of gloominess and despair, it is almost shocking.  And certainly perplexing, as these feelings seem to appear for no apparent reason. In this state, one may experience:

  • No ambition to do things you love.
  • Inability to enjoy anything.
  • You suddenly feel weighed down.
  • The feeling of a black cloud seems to be hanging over you.
  • It is difficult to hide this mood from anyone.
  • It is impossible to shake this mood through logical or willful thinking.

Then, just as suddenly as they appear, these intense emotions will disappear.  Making you feel out of control and at the mercy of such feelings. Welcome to the personality of the Flower Essence Mustard. 

Dr. Edward Bach, the doctor that developed the Flower Essence therapy stated that people that most benefit from Mustard are:

“Those who are liable to times of gloom or even despair, as though a cold dark cloud overshadowed them and hid the light and the joy of life.  It may not be possible to give any reason or explanation for such attacks.  Under these conditions, it is almost impossible to appear happy or cheerful.”

He described the Mustard flower essence as The Light Flower that can raise the vibrational frequency that is depressed in this negative state. 

Not surprisingly, many famous artists and musicians experience this type of depressed state.  It is in the positive state that the artist is able to experience rich emotions, sense things deeply and then transmute those feelings into the beautiful art and music we enjoy. 

It is the power of the Mustard Flower Essence that can bring us into that positive state.  When we are balanced, we will experience the “cloudy” days in a more peaceful, serene way, knowing that there are cycles and that there will always be the ebb and flow in life; but, just as the cloudy days relent to the sun once more, the cloud over our lives will relinquish. 

If you think Mustard or any other Flower Essence might be right for you, contact me at The Healthpatch.  We would be delighted to help you find health and balance.
