Take Care, Take Pear – and Take It First

Don’t know which flower essence to take first? You’re not alone. Take Pear, for peacefulness.

Here’s why:

  • In most cases, Pear Essence is the best essence to begin with, for it will increase your sensitivity to the others.
  • It will pre-Pear you, much like settling the sediment in a pond, to see what’s needed next.
  • Pear Flower Essence, like the simple pear tree and its blossoms, gives us the message that everything will be okay.

Pear is the remedy to use when you need rescuing. The conflicts and tensions that arise, for us all at times, are caused by one attitude alone: resistance. Resistance leads to stress. Stress, as we well know, is the precursor to numerous emotional and physical issues. Hence the unwanted mindset of refusing to accept what is, practically begs to be quelled by Pear Flower Essence.

“We all could use a good spray of Pear these days, as far as I’m concerned.” So spoke an advocate for this flower essence. Pear is the natural choice in times of emergency, when our peace of mind tends to fly out the window. Being the first flower essence of the twenty that I’ve prepared, it holds a special place in my heart. Every room in my home, as well as my purse, is graced with a bottle.

One woman wrote to us, “My basement flooded because of a valve I’d opened and couldn’t get to shut off. I noticed that, even though circumstances were traumatic, I found myself laughing in the midst of it all. On Pear, I had this sense that everything was going to be okay. Nothing seemed to be such a big deal that it couldn’t be handled.”

Why not try standing in a pear orchard sometime? It’s a delightful experience! Inner peace abounds in the trees’ white five-petaled blossoms. Their pacifying message touches on a basic human predicament: resistance, as mentioned above. The hard wood of the pear also tree expresses its tolerant nature. This wood won’t break or splinter. It can be carved into many varied designs. The wood’s resilience, manifested in its absence of brittle resistance, suggests the stillness of inner peace.

War and peace are opposite states. Don’t we all resist our tests to some extent, perhaps on a daily basis? And don’t many of us live with warlike attitudes of subtle crosscurrents of tension? Throughout these recent years of pandemia, we could say that the entire world can benefit from this flower essence! As we move forward with one uncertain step after another, it seems we’re cycling through a mixture of challenges.

Accept, adjust, and adapt: these verbs describe the Pear Flower Essence—one that harbors “a portable bomb shelter of tranquility.” Pear helps transport us, to quote one of my favorite songs, “above the storms, above the pain, (to) a land where peace and laughter reign.”

Hence our motto: “Take care, take Pear.” And take it first.
