SOME QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS
Q: Can I use my Animal Wellness Essences for me as well as for my animals?
A: YES! The very same Flower Essences that we use in the Animal Wellness Collection are the ones we share with people. Please! I do not know how to say this strongly enough! We named this collection to honor the animals, but we never saw it as something people would not benefit from as well. Sometimes it is so much easier to grab a mix to help with anxiety, grief, or muscle aches and pains than stop and figure out a mix from scratch. Over the years, I have taken every Animal Wellness remedy many times, even Spraying. Yup! Even Spraying!
Q: How do I know how much of the Flower Essence to take, and how often?
A: Because Flower Essences are electrical roadmaps and informational remedies, rather than chemical substances, there is no specific dosage amount or frequency. They are natural remedies and it is impossible to take too much or too little -- as long as the information is getting into your system in any amount, it will benefit you. Follow your intuition when determining how much and how often to give Flower Essences to yourself or your child or pet.
Q: Will Flower Essences interact in a negative way with each other or with medications I'm taking?
A: No - Flower Essences are natural informational roadmaps that provide us with the problem-solving tools we need. They do not contain any chemical substance that would interact with medications or anything else you use on or in your body.
If you are taking more than one Flower Essence at a time, they also will not adversly interact with each other or dilute each other's strength. No matter how many Essences you choose to take, the information that you need from each one will be picked up by your system.
Q: Can Flower Essences make me sick?
A: No. Flower Essences are problem solving information. When you take a Flower Essence, your electrical system decides what to do with the information in the Essence. Your electrical system is wired to move you towards greater health and well-being. If the Essence offers useful information to your electrical system, usually your system will copy this information to improve your overall health and well-being. If your electrical system already has a solution for the problem that the Flower addresses, then it will not copy the information. The only exchange is one of information. A Flower Essence is not like a chemical remedy that might have side effects or make you sick. A Flower Essence has no volition to do anything. It is a roadmap for your electrical system to read and benefit from.
Q: How do I figure out which Flower Essences to work with?
A: Sometimes you may know intellectually which problems you need to address and can go by the names or descriptions of the Essences. Sometimes you may feel called to an Essence by your heart or your body without necessarily having an intellectual understanding of why you know you need to work with a certain Essence. Trust yourself. Worst-case scenario, you get electrical information for a problem you have already solved. If you want moral support for your choices, give us a call.

Q: What about with the animals in my care? My dog has started to bite his paws until they are very raw. What Essences do you suggest?
A: Animals are brilliant at utilizing the information in Flower Essences. They will make the most of any Essence you give them. If you chose an Essence that they do not need, it will not hurt them. So again, trust yourself and if you want moral support, call us!
That said, I do have some thoughts on this particular situation. Because we talk with animal caretakers all day long, we do have the additional advantage of seeing patterns of behavior with the animals, with our guiding Angels giving us the same suggestions over and over again for these situations.
As with so many skin issues or nervous habits, this chewing could be a sign your dog is feeling the vibrations of the modern world too intensely. Our world is full of sound waves created by our modern technology. The electrical systems of animals, ours included, were designed for much less electrical stimulation. The modern technology of our world moves through our electrical systems all the time. It is dissonant for all of us, but the animals, particularly dogs with their sensitivity to sound vibrations, feel this modern technology more acutely.
Modern technology affects their entire nervous systems, however the animals often show signs of this stress by chewing their skin or their paw pads or with nervous or aggressive behaviors. Because fur and skin is where the dissonance first penetrates their physical bodies, this chewing reflects their feeling of having their boundaries violated.
Some aggressive behaviors also reflect this feeling of having their electrical system violated. Just as we might say about an overwrought person that he or she is thin skinned or feeling raw, the dogs feel as if their skin is not up to the job of keeping all this noise out of their electrical systems. And it isn’t!
When someone calls to describe their beloved dog as licking his paws, biting his skin or involved in an anxiety based behavior, we consider whether this dog is trying to buffer out dissonance or shed a technology overcharge in his system in an attempt to feel more normal. All of us exist in an environment where there is too much electrical stimulation. Unfortunately, the nervous habits are not going to release the overcharge.
The dissonance of these vibrations can be handled by offering the dog electrical information about creating additional sound buffering. All of us, dogs included, have the capacity to create additional buffering from this modern dissonance, but most of us do not know how to do this. Certain Flowers hold information about how to do this. Our remedy Golden Armor is a mix of these Flowers. It offers the electrical information that dogs, other animals, and people need right now to create more of a sound buffer around their energy field so all of us can exist in a world that is electrically dissonant.
Dogs are one of the biological indicator species signaling that our environment is out of balance. While dogs may be exhibiting the most pronounced signs of stress from our modern technologies, all living creatures are feeling this stress. For example, worldwide studies of bird populations have indicated large exoduses from cities particularly among starling populations. Studies link this starling exodus to the increase in cell phones and cell towers. If we are going to continue with these technologies, we are going to have to accept the ways they affect all of us and give our electrical systems the support needed to handle this technology.
If this dog were in my care, I would give him our combination remedies Golden Armor, Healthy Coat to help the raw pads, and Anxiety. I might also give him Animal Emergency Care to address his heightened state of tension. This is really a good remedy if our fight or flight instincts are going full tilt as it helps during these kinds of draining circumstances.
Q: We took in a stray cat last summer. He’s just a wonderful fellow except for one problem...Homer scratches so badly that he bleeds...so far he has lesions on his neck, chest, abdomen and even his tail...at first we assumed it was fleas causing his discomfort. NOT SO and then we felt that if only he had a decent diet, it would stop, NOT SO... What do you recommend?
A: This might sound like the same situation as with the dog described above but one thing is different. Homer is a rescue animal. This means if Homer were in my care, I would give him Golden Armor, Healthy Coat, Immune Support, and Abandonment & Abuse.
I chose Immune Support rather than Animal Emergency Care because the situation sounds more chronic than part of a dramatic flare up. I suggested Golden Armor again because if the issue is, in any way a reflection of electrical stress, Golden Armor will give him more information on buffering his electrical system. Even if it is not the primary factor in his itching, the Golden Armor may still give him enough of a reprieve from modern world stress so that his electrical system can more successfully handle whatever is causing his distress.
The Healthy Coat has many Flower Essences that hold information about inflamed situations be they caused by nerves, allergens, or anything else. Just as with the dog, this Essence could be a support to his inflamed skin.
My last suggestion was Abandonment & Abuse, a remedy about which I feel as passionate as Golden Armor. Rescue animals have emotional and mental scars that do not necessarily go away when they begin their new life or heal their physical wounds. This remedy was created to help unwind these scars from rescue animals so that they can let go of this baggage from their old lives and truly know themselves to be free, clear, and safely in a new life.
Homer’s post traumatic stress mean that even mild present day stress can trigger Homer into thinking he is back in his old life. His old response to stress was to take it out on himself. Hopefully this remedy, over time, will help Homer to feel less stress and to find a kinder way to discharge the stress he still feels.
Q: Why do you say “over time”? Why would an animal or a person need to look at the road map of an Essence more than once?
A: If we are in a peaceful state of mind in a peaceful place in our lives, it is possible to read a Flower Essence and integrate its data into our energy systems with one encounter. Once integrated, the vibration of the Flower Essence becomes our own body wisdom that we can access without taking the Flower Essence again.
However, often we can benefit from taking an Essence repeatedly. Partly this is because we might have only been using it to search for one particular road map solution yet later, when new challenges enter our lives, we need its data for new challenges. Another factor is that when we are stressed we often need to read the map of the Flower Essence many times to copy the pattern.
Just as when we drive to a new place, we need to refer to the road map of highways and byways many times before getting to our destination, so too with the road maps of Flower Essences. We may need to look at their maps many times as we take our electrical systems to new levels of harmony and well-being.
With Homer, I said “over time” because it usually takes longer for rescue animals or anyone else who has been abused to learn all they can learn from the Abandonment & Abuse remedy. Rescue animals and other abused creatures have scars tangled throughout their electrical system creating layers and layers of knots. All this can be healed, but it takes repeated exposures to the remedy for all these layers to be untangled and released. This is because each time one layer of emotional or mental scars is released; another layer comes forward that needs the information of the remedy for its own release. These deeper layers can only be healed when the other outer layers are removed but they can be healed. It just takes time and repeated exposures to this combination Essences’ road map.
Q: How many remedies are too many remedies?
A: I am comfortable offering Homer or any other person or animal any number of Essences or in this case combination Essences at the same time. Our electrical systems are very adept at reading a lot of information at once. We do this all day long, reading everyone and everything we come in contact with. Getting information from a number of Essences that offer helpful problem solving information is not going to be a burden. It is our days reading too much electrical data of a more dissonant vibration that are actually the stressful thing!
Q: What about number of drops?
A: Any quantity of an Essence has the complete electrical information of the Essence in it. A couple of drops of Essence hold the same electrical information as a gallon of Essence. This means a small amount of Essence is almost always sufficient.
