STAGE 1 PROVING made by Eileen Nauman 4-16-95:

This is Bellis Perennis which grows at La Casa de Madre Tierra (the house of Mother Earth) and the plant with which Eileen worked and made the original flower essence from in 1995. This plant may have white daisy-like flowers, or a moderate pink color to them. This particular plant is pink. The homeopathic version utilizes the white daisy type only. Photo: Eileen Nauman

The Bellis Perennis that grows at La Casa de Madre Tierra is a pinkish-white, and not the standard white that is used for homeopathic purposes. A color photo at the beginning is the plant that was used to make the original flower essence that I used for the Stage 1 proving.

DOCTRINE OF SIGNATURE: The shape of the flower is radial or round. There are many tiny, oval-shaped, slender petals. It appears to be hundreds of them. They are TIGHTLY packed against one another. The enter of the daisy is a bright, large, sunny yellow color. It dominates the plant. Bellis Perennis is an annual. It cannot take a hot, direct sun for long periods of time, and will wither and waste away if it doesn’t have some shade and cooler temperatures (below 80 degrees).

PRIMARY CHAKRA: the color is pink, and this infers the RED of the root chakra is involved, along with the WHITE of the crown. Red + white equals PINK.

FLOWER ATTUNEMENT MESSAGE: Mental field; our thoughts and perceptions are tied to our ability to survive a shock or trauma–especially having to do with heart shocks. It would be good for swelling of tissue of any kind. It’s able to keep a person together in an emergency or crisis (tightly packed petals on flower, the huge sepal which encloses 2/3rds of the petals!). Good for head trauma or shocks (physical, mental, emotional or spiritual). Blood circulation in general would e helped. The sepal is like a “cup”–it holds energy ands tops it from being depleted. Staying grounded and keeping our head during a crisis f any kind.

PATTERNS OF IMBALANCE: Hysteria due to bad news or a traumatic experience. Leaving the body during or after traumatic experience. PTSD symptoms/person can be helped with this flower essence. War victims and survivors–family “war” too (violent, abusive households, spousal abuse, child abuse) Any violent attack or event (in or out of a family) against the person and resulting in their wounding, can be helped.

SYMBOL: This is a protective equality about it. The tightly packed petals to over-sized sepal–a “cup” that holds “things” such as energy to prevent tiredness.

OTHER: This flower was very SLOW and subtle to connect with me to reveal its attributes. I kept getting this sense of protection form it over and over again–feminine energy—quiet, subtle and very low-key and non-disturbing to a person.

Story line: Perfume sour taste– very slow acting –noticed nothing happening. Like the opposite of a headache –Brain front nothing happening, slight notice of stomach (like a swelling) Mental still working in brain, mostly physical nothing, back of neck sensation. Felt as though I was in a large dark place –not on Earth or planet, like I’m suspended somewhere –No emotion, no fear, kind of calm like contained calm ok.

2nd dose — Like I can listen to my mental without interference — centering myself in myself without ANY outside interference. Very slow acting took a long time to reach this stage. After two minute warning?

Breathing became very steady and rhythmic –started to feel whole body COOL DOWN, Brain seems physically more relaxed and the opposite of a headache.

Comments taken by E. NAUMAN, Chief prover:

“MJ” says the essence is SLOW acting. He could feel it receding. There was awareness in “MJ”, he was calm and non-function. His stomach felt like it was swelling and growing–a pregnant feeling.

He said he had the “reverse headache” which means that pressure was REMOVED from inside his brain–this would be good for headaches of this symptom pattern. This sensation began in the front of the brow/forehead.

The rear (posterior) of his neck began hurting. He said it straightened out, then and would be good for neck adjustments or perhaps people with neck injury, tight/tension in their necks or people who had suffered from whiplash in an auto accident (how long ago wouldn’t matter–it could be 20 years ago, or yesterday).

He felt as if he were in a large, dark place where there was no light–the sense of deprivation of his senses was acute (just as people in SHOCK experience the same thing–EN). Lack of emotions and his mental activity felt contained.

Taking a second set of drops, there was a centering of himself without interference from outside influences. He had a suspended kind of feeling–not pleasant, but not unpleasant, either.

His breathing became steady and rhythmic (like in a meditation state or a very calm state of being). He felt his body cool down and shut down. Brain felt relaxed.

Comments taken by E. NAUMAN, Chief prover

It was definitely root chakra and vaginal. Sexual feeling to this essence. Receptivity in physical and spiritual sense–awareness of my skin. This is a female and/or androgynous essence. My emotions were receptive. Receptive emotionally. Cleverness through passivity. Passive. Would be good for aggressive, assaultive, abusive people. This essence could help those who are always giving too much of themselves and they deplete themselves on every level, for others. Giving Vs. receiving.
