I would like to know how long I should take the formula I ordered...
...Should I go in and adjust the questionnaire according to how I am doing/what I am experiencing - let's say 6 months from now. Love the product, though and will definitely want to keep using it.
There is no hard-and-fast answer to your question, and there is no formula that is right for everyone.
Usually, there are two reasons for taking a Bach flower essence:
1. To alleviate symptoms in specific situations that we find difficult
2. When we are not happy with how we have been handling ourselves in a certain area(s), and we wish to change our approach Since I don’t know the reason for your taking your essence, I can only give general information and the choice of what care plan to follow will be yours.
Essences for specific situations are always good for that same certain period of time.
For example, I had to part from someone dear to me, and I found it difficult to return to normal functioning; all of my thoughts and feelings centered around my loss.
For the relevant time period, I should use the essence that helps me get my life back on track, and I will continue taking it until I feel that balance has been restored.
In contrast, the period of time required to create a change in my habits or to eliminate an ongoing symptom is long and varies from individual to individual.
Some highly motivated people are capable of progressing at a steady clip, while others need more time.
By the same token, there are those who need to “rest” between accomplishments, while others, as soon as they have reached one milestone, are already looking at the next one.
The best advice I can give you is to be gentle on yourself and act consistently with your inner voice.
Battling ourselves never helps; if there is resistance to change for whatever reason, that same resistance will just grow stronger with any essence taken.
In any case, it’s a good idea to take breaks from the essence in order to “wake up” the body’s and the mind’s systems so that their responses will be more effective.
Therefore, don’t take the same essence for more than three months straight.
