How do the remedies work?

If you don’t see the negative feelings how can the Bach Flower Remedies help us?

Working with the remedies is not a mechanical process. It is not just a question of ‘feel the fear, take Mimulus and get over it’. There are always degrees and stages in self-awareness. Life is showing us the true situation all the time but we often fail to see it. The remedy helps us to recognise what is real.  Suppose that it is raining and you show me a picture of sunshine. Perhaps I will remember it. This doesn’t stop the rain but I can decide either to enjoy the rain or to be patient and wait for the sun to come out again. In such a way the rain helps me to recognise the sun and the sun helps me to recognise the rain.
