It is a well-known medical fact the impact of shock can be very damaging, and that controlling that impact can be crucial in recovery. As a parent, you often feel helpless when your child is hurt or injured. However, there is a really significant thing you can do to help them, and that is to clear away the trauma and shock using flower remedies. Obviously, you must get them the appropriate medical care first. Once this is done, you can start the healing.
When a child experiences a shock or trauma, the energy signature of the experience will go into their cellular memory. What does this mean? Well, basically, it can lock the body into the experience of that trauma. Experiences which are traumatic are difficult or even impossible for us to process and deal with – this is why people develop post traumatic stress disorder. If the trauma is dealt with and cleared, then the longterm effects are minimal. On the other hand, if you just ignore it, that negative energy signature will sit in your child’s cells undermining their wellbeing.
Fortunately, flower remedies are brilliant at clearing away these energies of shock and trauma. There is a ready-blended flower remedy which is specifically for shock and trauma, and that is Rescue Remedy. If you only have one flower remedy in your cupboard, this is the one to use. Rescue Remedy contains five individual remedies: Star of Bethlehem, Impatiens, Cherry Plum, Rock Rose and Clematis, designed to deal with all the emotional aspects of shock and trauma.
If your child experiences a trauma, accident or operation, it is important to start using the remedies as soon as possible. If you are going to give flower remedies to a baby or young child, make sure that you have removed the alcohol as described in my earlier post. In the case of a accident, or after an operation, you can take the Rescue Remedy directly from the bottle and simply rub a few drops into the pulse points of your child (under the ear or on the inside of the wrist). In the early stages, do this every fifteen minutes, and then ease off over the next few hours.
When I have used this remedy with my children, you can feel them relax and almost step back from the acute feelings of what has happened to them within minutes. Rescue Remedy is available from every pharmacy and health food shop, and is usually available in 10ml drooper bottles, pastilles, and also a spray.
By taking this simple step to deal with the emotional effects of the shock, you can make a significant contribution to your child’s short-term and long-term wellbeing.
I’ll be sharing a story about clearing shock from my baby in a later post.
