I like the taste of a little brandy in my water or in my tea. I would not want it in my coffee (I like mine with cream!) but I could probably live with it.
But I would not want my boyfriend to drink my remedy in a moment of extreme thirst for alcohol.
I don't have a boy friend, if you are now wondering. But I did have one, and that relationship taught me a lot.
We met in 2000 and he was an alcoholic. I told him that it is unacceptable. He did the Landmark Forum and he stopped drinking cold turkey. He was doing well, no drinking, not even talking about drinking, for a whole year. Until a kindly waiter at the Japanese restaurant rewarded us with a glass of plum wine for our patronage.
I was clueless, and didn't say anything. He, my boy friend, poured the wine into his tea, and drank it. And that was the end of his sobriety.
The coming 3 years was a nightmare. A little glass of plum wine, that's all he needed to go back to a full raging alcoholic.
So, I have been looking for alternative ways for you to get your remedy.
The brandy, in the remedy, serves one purpose: to extend the life of the water: bugs don't grow in alcohol. Water stored gets all bad... The other purpose was to retain the similarity to the Bach Flower Remedy that was the energetic parent of the Bach flower energies.
But, here is the good news, the Bach Flower Energies and the Energizer can be infused to anything that has a large water content, which is anything that lives, even chocolate!
I like chocolate, but chocolate doesn't like me. It is addictive, and it makes me fat. No chocolate for me!
There is one problem with the Bach Flower Energies (Heaven on Earth) that I have encountered: Unlike an individual energy, like the Energizer, The Heaven on Earth energy bundle doesn't propagate (spread) with entrainment.
Entrainment is the phenomenon where wave-like, or cyclical "events" synchronize. Heart beat, menstrual cycle, the beats of clocks can be "propagated" with entrainment. 1
Unfortunately and fortunately, from this point of view, the Bach flower Energy Bundle is an energy bundle... and if they could entrain then they would entrain each other, such rendering all but the strongest energy useless... lol. That is not what we want, we want each Bach flower energy to "survive" the bundling in pristine condition, preserving its individuality, like a bunch of flowers: each after its kind.
The Energizer, on the other hand, passed onto the water, so, in spite of my fears, that is solved: I will be able to sell that item now, and be sure that you get what you paid for.
I have also found other items on Amazon that can be used as a pain-eraser once infused... you can energize your whole fridge, your swimming pool, your whole house, it's a matter of size only. And if I could successfully infuse a lake, I am sure I can infuse a puny ice-gel-pak...
So, how are we going to solve this alcohol problem for the Bach Flower Energies? Any suggestions? Glycerin would work, but it is mighty disgusting, to me.
Any suggestions? I mean it. What would you use to preserve water if it were YOUR task?
- As I was looking for images for this post, I was alerted that scam artists use the word entrainment to dupe you into buying their products. The products I am talking about are called "Brain Entrainment" and they are bogus. For one, I would not like to have my brain "entrained" to the noise these recordings contain. On the other hand, the sounds of "Holosync" do work, even on the free CD! no need to buy the whole program. And, I hear, that the custom tapes with your own voice is a big seller, I have an old-old boyfriend, from 40 years ago, who is infusing your voice into water and uses it to "heal" people, both are quite dubious practices. If I needed to choose, I would choose the Bach Flower Energies, hands down. Bach flower remedies from a practitioner? Bach flower remedies after filling out a questionnaire? NO WAY! they are too subjective, and subjective doesn't work in the area of healing or transformation!
