Dr Bach’s Philosophy
The Vision & Message Behind the Remedies
Dr Bach’s philosophy is as simple as it is profound. He carried an innate understanding that life on the physical plane of existence is intended to be a conscious partnership between the physical (personality) and non-physical (soul) aspects of ourselves.
All Dr Bach’s work is based on this truth and we hear it echoed over and over again throughout his writings as he constantly reminds us of the need to remember our spiritual origins and the inter-connectedness of mind, body & soul.
With simple clarity he explains his understanding that symptoms of disharmony in the physical body are nothing more than a reminder that the personality self is in some way out of alignment with the greater truth of the soul and will ultimately disappear as greater harmony is brought to an individuals mental and emotional approach to life.
The Bach Remedies are a toolkit for change
Dr Bach saw his 38 Remedies as tools that would help us to rise above the limited vision that we carry at a personality level and connect us with the our true Essence.
Dr Bach was a way-shower, someone with a vision and a message that is as relevant today as it was during his lifetime.
In his own words;
"The action of these remedies is to raise our vibrations and open up our channels for the reception of our Spiritual Self, to flood our natures with the particular virtue we need, and wash out from us the fault which is causing harm. They are able, like beautiful music, or any gloriously uplifting thing which gives us inspiration, to raise our very natures, and bring us nearer to our Souls: and by that very act bring us peace and relieve our sufferings. They cure, not by attacking disease, but by flooding our bodies with the beautiful vibrations of our Higher Nature, in the presence of which disease melts as snow in the sunshine".
Dr. Bach - a wayshower
- Life is a conscious partnership between the physical (personality) and non-physical (soul).
- The inter-connectedness of mind, body & soul.
- Disharmony in the physical body is a soul reminder that the personality self is in some way out of alignment.
Dr Edward Bach was indeed a way-shower, someone with a vision and a message that is as relevant today as it was during his lifetime. In the nearly eighty years or so since his death many have used his 38 remedies, although until comparatively recently only a minority have really been willing to accept the powerful truth of the message that accompanied them. However, we are now in a period of rapidly rising consciousness and ideas that seemed beyond our comprehension only a few short years ago are now easily understood.
The seeds of truth that Dr Bach came to sow are indeed beginning to bring forth fruit and now form part of the foundations that will allow a greater understanding of human wellbeing to unfold over the coming years.
