In-Depth Review

A valuable inclusion with this deck is the short biography of Edward Bach. After reading it youe can decide to pursue a more lengthy biography or be content with this information. Some things you'll learn include:

In 1919, Bach, an experienced medical man, learned of homeopathy and the ideas of Samuel Haknemann. He was struck by the similarities between homeopathy and the conclusions he had drawn based on his own experiences in his medical practice. He continued research, incorporating the affects of mood and diet, leading him to an extremely holistic approach to not merely medicine or treatment of ills, but of well-being in general.

From the book:

In 1928, Bach came upon an idea that would change the course of his research: while observing the guests at a party, he realized that they could be grouped into precise categories according their attitudes and behaviors. Reflecting on the connection between illnesses and personality types implied that it was not the type of pathology that determined the relationship between patients, but rather their reaction to the illness. He therefore began to prescribe remedies based on the behavioral characteristics and habits of the patient.

When our personality is not in synch with our soul … a conflict is established that becomes the root of all evil and unhappiness. Bach stressed the task that is assigned to us by our Soul and it is our duty to shield this task from external interference, seeking wisdom and true knowledge that derive from our interiority within our selves. The concept of illness is therefore that of a non-material event that manifests itself in the body as the result of forces that have been acting lengthily on other levels; a materialistic treatment would only produce a temporary improvement… He identified true illness in defects like pride, cruelty, hatred, egoism, ignorance, instability, and avidity. According to Bach the therapy consists in not being discouraged by a defect, but by overcoming it with the help of virtues that counteract negative inclinations.

He eventually identified a total of 38 remedies: 12 healers, 7 helpers, 19 assistants, as well as his special blend, the Rescue Remedy.

The deck presented here has 38 cards representing the healers, the helpers, and the assistants. Three ways given for usage. The first is to select three cards through a lengthy process of looking at the images and separating them into piles until you have eliminated all but three. The second method is to draw a card randomly. The third method is to use the cards as flash cards in order to learn the essences and their effects.

The art is undeniably charming and very suitable for the subject and time period. If you like oracles, are interested in or knowledgeable of Bach Flower Essences, and agree that the art is pleasing, then this deck would be a perfect match.

For the person willing to put in a little effort, this oracle could certainly provide wise and gentle guidance for general or specific life questions, leading the user toward healing and growth…and of course over all well-being.

When Lo Scarabeo asked me to create a Pagan-based casting kit, I was excited for a number of reasons. I love crystals. I love challenges. I loved the idea of creating a system that is complete in itself but also open to expansion and personalization. Although I wasn't sure what the kit and packaging would look like (sometimes a lot gets lost... read this article
