According to flower essence therapist Cynthia Athina Kemp Scherer:
"As we use a flower essence, we begin to resonate in harmony with the qualities of the flower, and limitations begin to fade. It is not necessary to believe in them to experience their beneficial effects.
Flower essences do not force something to happen. They do, however, help us become conscious of things that are already happening with ourselves. As a result, we may become uncomfortable with what we see.
The essences affect a shift in consciousness. To recognize how they are working, it is necessary to observe our inner state. The more attuned we are to our inner life, the easier it is to recognize the flower essence's effects.
A combination self-contemplation, feedback from trusted family members and friends and journaling is helpful to show us the changes that happened.
If you are dealing with intense emotional processing, it is recommended that you see a professional flower essence counselor. This can help clarify, processes and provide support for peeling off the layers that usually accompany healing processes."
