Those who know me super well would know that my Chinese writing skill is horrible. Writing a blog post in English would just take me a few quick minutes, as fast as my typing speed could take me. But writing in Chinese, Oh No!
Recently, I'm doing the Chinese translation of my SimplyBach website, which I had dreaded and delayed for so long. I have to put in extra hours of work after a whole day of consultations with clients, so that I can have time for this translation job. But no matter how much I wish this task can be quickly accomplished, my Chinese vocabulary is really 'private limited'!
I would be sighing and grumbling away as I toggled between Google Translate and Chinese online dictionary. Even my hubby felt I was such a comical sight with all my grouching. I felt so exhausted doing the Chinese translation for days and nights.
Today, I took Willow (to help overcome my resentment), Olive (to help overcome my exhaustion) and Impatiens (to help overcome my impatience and irritability over the slowness of this task). These are the passing moods I encountered while doing the task. And Woo Hoo! After sipping the water added with these remedies for a while, my bad moods were gone! Again, my hubby was amused when he saw me patiently, quietly and faithfully continuing to plod on with this arduous task.
So here I am, taking a small break from all those Chinese words flying around my eyes, and happily typing away in English and sharing this story with everyone.
Popeye counting sheep
After attending a whole day course, I was so so so tired. The first thing I did after reaching home was flopped onto my sofa, and went 'concussed' for two hours before I could managed to charge my 'battery' up to a minimal energy bar level, just enough to force open my eyes and drag myself to bathe. But I was still feeling so drained, both mind and body. I took the Olive remedy, my favourite whenever I'm feeling exhausted. Olive helps us recharge naturally by putting us back in touch with our natural energy reserve or help us to rest and recover.
After a moment, I felt recharged again. Haha...just like Popeye eating his spinach. Then I started having thoughts marathon in my head. A lot of big, great plans of things I want to do to push for the causes that I strongly believe in. So much hype energy in me, and I shared my ideas excitedly for hours to my hubby who had already happily put himself into bed. Until he politely reminded it was super high time for us to sleep. Haha...that brought me back to my sense, and the lights were ordered off. But my mind couldn't calm down, it was still happily running wild with ideas. Hmm...if I don't do anything about this, it would be another insomnia night of counting sheep.
I knew my Vervain personality had got over me again. Defeated, I took the Vervain remedy. Moments later, my whole body relaxed and I could sleep like a baby again. Zzz...
Have you ever encountered feeling out of sorts? As if you are not quite you?
A confident you suddenly feeling the stage fright when your boss asked you to do a presentation to a hall of audiences? A capable you suddenly feeling overwhelmed when you received a huge tons of assignments? An alert you suddenly feeling bemused? A patient you suddenly feeling so irritated and agitated? A loving you suddenly snapping at your kids for making too much noise?
This is common. These moments are called passing moods. Passing moods come and go quickly. However, sometimes, these passing moods may linger longer than expected and you are feeling out of sorts and not sure how to handle them.
Besides able to resolve emotional imbalances, Bach Flower Remedies can also effectively resolve passing moods. All it requires is to add 2 drops of the appropriate remedies into your drink of any type.
