Blue Dicks - Broaden Perspective/Spiritual Insight/Strengthen Vision
Blue Dicks, also called Wild Hyacinth or Grass Nuts Brodiaea, grows 2 to 3 feet high on leafless stems, in the Coastal sage and Grasslands. Because of their tasty edible
corms or bulbs when roasted, settlers and Native Americans alike gathered them for
food, hence the name grass nuts. As an essence, it spiritualizes the intellect and
perspective. Its signature lies in the bulb from which the plant sprouts, shaped like
an eye, and too the purple color of the flower ball, that stimulates the higher centers
in the head. It alleviates bitter, cynical or paranoia thoughts and viewpoints that can
lead to feeling isolated, self-centered or intellectually hostile. Eccentric geniuses
exemplify this. The mind becomes broader and more open to the influx and influence
of higher thoughts from the spiritual aspects of self, increasing clarity of thought,
self-esteem and less condemnation. It can strengthen and relax the eyes through
releasing toxins and narrowed perspectives. Dream states and spiritual insight
improve. It's useful with Eyebright, Carrot, Clematis, California Buckeye or White
Chestnut to support the eyes.
California Buckeye - Peace of Mind/Higher Inspiration/Beyond Thought
California Buckeye is a horse chestnut in the same genus Aesculus as Dr Edward
Bach's flower remedies White Chestnut and Red Chestnut. As such, California
Buckeye is very similar to White Chestnut. It clears excessive worry, negative
circular obsessive thoughts, and unwanted internal mental arguments or
conversations that go round and round in the mind. These states can interfere with
one's mental clarity and inner peace. This flower essence calms and brings peace to
the mind and mental processes so one can pay heed to one's intuition, hear the still
inner voice, and attune to the higher self to receive answers to one's problems or
issues. It quiets constant mental activity, sometimes called the monkey mind, and
the associated beta brain waves, to access the higher mind to receive inspiration,
new ideas and solutions. It is outstanding for problem-solving, meditation, prayer,
contemplation, and to aid sleep if thoughts keep one awake. It can also be of help
for improving the vision, where one is not looking at or paying attention to one's
surroundings because of over-thinking.

Daffodil distinguishes itself from other similar remedies that increase attunement to the higher self and inner guidance.

Lucid Perception Formula
The definition of perception is a bit different from perspective. Perspective is a point of view. Perception is an interpretation that comes through awareness. We can explore
diverse perspectives to generate a new perception, like when Aldous Huxley imbibed
mescaline. It gave him a radically different perspective, leading him to write the Doors of
Perception. He took the title from a quote by English poet William Blake. "If the doors
of perception were cleansed, everything would appear to man as it is, Infinite. For man
has closed himself up, till he sees all things through narrow chinks of his cavern."*
Lucid Perception helps to release rigid, limited, and confused points of view. It thins the
veil, offering a more elevated vision - finer, kinder, more objective and expanded; a
perception more in line with the Infinite. Dreams become more luminous and meditation
more profound. Insight into daily affairs becomes increasingly crystal clear. Use it
liberally to cleanse narrow and negative outlooks to see with greater lucidity the light,
love and goodness all around. This formula is for everyone!
*From William Blake's book The Marriage of Heaven and Hell, 1793.

Quartz Tourmaline Seventh Chakra - Spiritual Alchemy, Clear Energy Field, Great Self

Queen Anne's Lace - Spiritualizing the Intellect/Improving Vision
Queen Anne's Lace eases over-mental activity, over-intellectualizing, and uncertainty about one's spiritual philosophy. When one over-thinks and over-focuses on small details, one loses the ability to access one's spiritual aspects and to see the bigger picture. This essence calms the mental body and stimulates the pituitary, pineal, and the spiritual aspects of oneself to increase clarity of thought, attune to the higher self and higher information, and make decisions from a spiritual perspective. The eyes become weakened through being over-mental as one is distracted from looking at or paying attention to the environment. By quieting the mind, one can use the eyes properly and then vision can improve. Works well with Baby Blue Eyes, California Buckeye, Clematis, or Eyebright to support eyesight.

Red Chestnut lets people care compassionately about others without anxiety, so that they can send thoughts of love, safety and healing to those in trouble while remaining calm and serene.
Rock Water - For self-deni al and being too hard on oneself
Rock Water helps people who are hard masters to themselves. Such individuals have high ideals and standards and adhere to them rigidly to the point of hurting themselves. They deny themselves many joys in life with their strict rules and disciplines, whether in pursuit of work, diet, politics, exercise, or spirituality. They seek self-perfection and are often disappointed in and unforgiving of themselves. They don't actively interfere with others, but rather may take pride in being an example for them. This is the only Bach remedy made from mineral water rather than a flower. It is underground spring water that runs through rock, softening and dissolving its hardness.
Rock Water fosters flexibility of mind and body, allowing those with high ideals to become gentler with themselves, more receptive to other ideas, and more able to move more spontaneously, peacefully and joyfully with the flow of life.
