Flower Essences to Support Surgery
by Ziporah Hildebrandt


Surgery is one of the most common traumas we face in life. Whether it is a minor elective procedure, or a dangerous life-saving operation, surgery is rough on body, mind, self and soul. Flower essences can ease the emotional and mental stresses of surgery. Reduced stress can quicken recovery, shorten hospital stays, and lessen the chance of complications.

Taking flower essences before surgery increases positive feelings such as optimism, acceptance and peace. This helps the body deal with the physical stress of the operation. After surgery, flower essences can ease common stresses such as difficulty sleeping, feelings of fear and doubt, the challenges of helplessness and the inability to function in familiar ways, Flower essences can further aid recovery through increasing motivation and helping with any lifestyle and emotional adjustments.

Anxiety before surgery is common. A recommended combination known as Pre-Trauma consists of Garlic, Chamomile, Red Clover, St. Johnís Wort, Moonshine Yarrow, Borage and Sweet Pepper. If this combination is not available, the individual essences will also work well. This combination is quite effective for pets going to the vet or even before dental visits.

Flower essences work well on both a short and long-term basis. To prepare physically for an operation, begin taking appropriate flower essences at least 36 hours before surgery, and continue afterward until feeling mentally and emotionally somewhat recovered. For emotional preparation, begin up to a month before surgery. For a lot of anxiety, try Chamomile, Gorse, Mimulus, Valerian, Aspen or Lavender. Depressed patients may need Self-heal, Hollyhock, Roses, Borage or Horseradish.

Recommended Flower Essences

Rock Rose and Star-of-Bethlehem soothe terror, stress, shock and trauma to the live force. They bring calm and a sense of spiritual comfort that counteracts feelings of being abandoned, alone, helpless or invaded.

Self-heal encourages responsibility and participation in the healing process. When there is doubt about the ability to recover, it can help connect to an inner-source of healing strength and intuition.

Yarrow strengthens the etheric shield, the protective energy field around each cell, organ and person. It helps with the energetic disruption of radiation, including X-rays, MRIs and CAT Scans.
Garlic assists in dispelling negativity and aids inner-vitality, which can increase resistance to infection.
St. Johnís Wort, Cherry Plum, Angelica and Goldthread can give a sense of protection. Especially useful the week before general anesthesia and helpful for falling asleep.
Morning Glory helps get over the dull feeling of anesthesia and medications, while Rosemary can help people feel warm and alive again.
Peony and Crested Iris help people experience unconditional love. This is highly appropriate for children, birth and anyone facing especially dangerous medical situations.
Borage, Rose Campion and Love-Lies-Bleeding help ease intense suffering. Borage uplifts a heavy heart, while Rose Campion releases pain shut within. Love-Lies-Bleeding can bring relief to those overly immersed in their pain. They are especially appropriate for heart surgery.
Valerian, Lavender and Annual Sweet Pea (Lathyrus odorata) are soothing to those who are anxious, nervous, stressed to the breaking point. They can help with insomnia and bad dreams.
Comfrey, White Bleeding Heart, White Money Plant and White Foxglove are indicated when the present brings up pain from the past, such as grief, loss, feelings of being alone, unloved, worthless, deeply hurt or traumatized.
Ladyís Mantle and Mariposa Lily bestow a warm sense of motherly connection and protection. Especially helpful for children, women during pregnancy or labor, or anyone feeling motherless.
Hollyhock, Gentian and Gorse are helpful for the discouraged. They bring faith and hope, which can increase optimism and inner vitality. These are important to good immune function, and often speed recovery. The truly despairing can take Sweet Chestnut to encourage inner transformation.
Spiderwort, Cayenne, Walnut and Horseradish can help the stuck get out of the rut, whether itís the past, a negative belief or attitude.

Calendula, Impatiens and Snapdragon can shift the irritable, impatient, intolerant patient to a softer attitude.
Penstemon, Olive and Oak are helpful for those who are exhausted from illness or struggle. Elm supports people who feel overwhelmed. (Care-givers may benefit, too!)
Blackberry is a wonderful motivator and useful when recovery involves lifestyle changes or new exercise regimens. Tansy is helpful for those who sabotage their own efforts.
Rose, Iris and Echinacea are applicable to many of the situations described above. They particularly bring a loving soul connection to those who struggle to take the next step in their life process. Rose is especially when someone has let go of something and feels empty. It could be an unhealthy habit, a dysfunctional relationship, a painful memory or negative attitude, or a body part that was removed. Rose flower essences can fill the empty place from within with the divine soul forces.
