The type remedy indicates the main fault we are here to work on. This is shown by the number of times problems in our lives turn out to be something to do with our type remedy. And it is shown too by the way we will often react in out type way of what-ever provocation life throws at us. Faced with a boring party, a job to do or troublesome child the Agrimony person will smile and make a joke, the Impatiens person will try and speed things up and cut corners, the Oak person will plod through without losing their temper or getting too excited. Those watching will look at each other and say, ‘Typical’. Bach Centre Newsletter, September 1970 ~ Bach’s writings and Nora Weeks
Should any difficulty be found in selecting your own remedy, it will help to ask yourself which of the virtues you most admire in other people; or which of the failings is, in others, your pet aversions, for any fault of which we may still have a trace and are essentially attempting to eradicate, that is the one we most hate to see in other people. It is the way we are encouraged to wipe it out in ourselves. Free Thyself, Dr. Bach 1932
Things to consider
Our natural personality is our type remedy. Type remedies define who we are. The different personality types do things differently from each other. It is often hard to figure out our remedy type when we are in balance. Remedy types can change over time.
How would you react to the following situations and do they resonate to any particular remedies?
- When ill
- Feeling guilty
- In a crisis
- Under stress
- When criticized
- To an argument
- When in a hurry
- When things go wrong
- When you are tired
- With decision making
- With being the center of attention
- When you find life boring
- When you want to say ‘no’
- When you want to be alone
- When you are around a lot of people
Think about something that happened to you recently.
- How did your react?
- How did you feel?
- What did you say?
- How did others respond to you?
All we have to do is to preserve our personality, to live our own life, to be captain of our own ship, and all will be well… Free Thyself, Dr. Bach 1932
