Daisy Bellis perennis

Daisy-people are extremely reliable. You can rely on them. They are responsibility-conscious, they often take on too much and they literally and figuratively carry the burden of others. They do not let even enormous difficulties get them down.
They are masters of ignoring, on principle, their states of exhaustion.
This often creates extreme physical and psychological states of tension and spasm.
And make no mistake: These muscle tensions can lead to cramping of the heart muscle.
And even with that, they don't want to be confronted. But when I ask: do you feel like there is an ironing board "under" your back or do you feel like your whole back feels like a stiff board...yes, they are willing to admit that.

The cause of all this is a misunderstood sense of duty and often you hear people say: If I don't do it, who will?

Because of their enormous willpower, they just carry on, usually unaware that they are preying on their system because they think they are acting out of duty.
They use coffee, tea or cola to get through their momentary states of weakness to come.

When they are sick, they want to get well again as soon as possible because there is no time to be sick.
After all, being sick means an obstacle to fulfilling duty!

It is also easy to recognise the Daisy state because working is seen as a virtue.

And I have another gimmick:
You will have already understood that it is not easy for Madelief people to see how they are engaging in physical overloading of their system.
I often ask: When you go on holiday, are you going to do nothing at all, be lazy, just do whatever comes into your mind at the time
you go and do all kinds of fun things, mountain hiking, cycling, rafting or whatever as long as you are busy BECAUSE otherwise it is a waste of your holiday. You only have such a short time!
And I don't mean that you can't have a cycling holiday or trek!
The pitfall lies in the "obligation" to fill the holidays well too.

I remember, years ago, we were on holiday in a small mountain village in Italy. Next to us was a family, father, mother, 4 small children. Every morning, very early, the whole family went out with mountain boots (it was the first time I saw such shoes). At the end of the afternoon, the family returned. The children muscle-white, exhausted and the father felt wonderful.
That image only came to mind when I started making the blossom remedy Daisy.

The difference between doing nothing at all in the holidays and make all kinds of plans is in "remedy language":
The blossom remedy Pure (see blog 29-10-2016), where the magic word "HUGE" is important in their vocabulary and once they are on holiday they do MANY things!
the blossom remedy Daisy, where the magic word "MUST" comes first.

You are actually using your necessary own energy.
This often leads to a sharp drop in blood sugar levels, which is again overcome by eating sweets.
This lowers blood sugar even more.
When such a low is coming, you can prevent it by eating something without sugar when you feel it coming.

This condition arises not only from working very hard or overtime but also after prolonged difficulties in private or business life.
Suppose your marriage is bad as years and you continue it only for the sake of the children
That you have been a carer for years and feel you are the "ultimate responsible person" for the sick person you care for,
..........ook then this state of mind arises.

PLIGHTBEWARE serves as an alibi for predatory health.

Physical symptoms may include:
coughing attacks,
heavy night sweats,
watery diarrhoea or constipation,
difficult bowel movements,
futile urge to defecate,
futile urge to urinate,
pain in the penis,
pain from the tailbone radiating into the lower body,
feeling of tension in the abdomen,
stiffness in the back and loins that make bending and turning over difficult,
pulling pain in the back and loins that makes bending over and turning over difficult,
pain in the hips and legs,
feeling of cold and pain in the calves,
The same in the lower legs and feet,
very hard muscles,
all allergies


As soon as I hear that children or adults wake up between 5 and 7 a.m. in winter and between 6 and 8 in summer, I am alert. If on top of that, and this is especially common in children, they perspire so much during the night, it is already an indication to me that they are preying on their bodies.

Somehow, many children need daisies. Many children in the present day have so much on their plates. They also "have to" do all sorts of things. Besides their school days, they have all kinds of often clubs. How often do I hear mothers say that they spend hours and hours just to bring their children to all the clubs. Football, ballet, gymnastics, judo and so on. Many children don't even have time to "just" play outside anymore. You don't belong anymore if you don't have a mobile phone, if you don't "tweet", if you don't post on instagram, if you don't make a snap on snapchat, if you don't broadcast live on Beme, if you're not on Facebook, if you don't etc. etc. etc.
You also often see them being tireless in everything they do and not allowing themselves a break.
They constantly push their physical limits like hunger, thirst or the desire for sleep.
They often suppress bowel movements and the urge to urinate and only go to the toilet when it is almost too late or do it in their trousers a few metres before. Some suffer from constipation as a result.
Compared to children of their age group, these children have little need for sleep.
They are more likely to skip afternoon nap than other children and endlessly postpone going to bed, even if they yawn.
If they are allowed to stay up once, unlike other children, they do not catch up on sleep and get up at the usual time the next day.
The cola drinks so cherished by the young cover up the lack of sleep, so the actual exhaustion is not visible. But what you do notice is a palpable subcutaneous nervousness, a completely tense back and night sweats.

Daisy - Small but powerful. The more it is mowed or walked on, the more the daisy multiplies all the stronger. This shows strength and perseverance, a perseverance that also goes beyond boundaries. People, who benefit from daisies are energetic and dedicated, but often exhausted inside. Daisy gives new energy in the body. Groundedness. Calmness. Relaxation. Cheerfulness. Gives satisfaction and contentment.
Also removes pain from the muscles, which often arises because you keep going on and on. Daisy also restores your resilience.

Use of Blossom Remedies

The most important thing with blossom remedies is the frequency of intake. Blossom remedies are best taken as often as possible in a day with the golden guideline being; 4 to 6 times a day, with 4 drops at a time from the dispensing bottle. To use blossom remedies and a user bottle, here are the simple steps; take a clean and unused 30ml pipette bottle. First, fill the pipette bottle with spring water. After this, add one teaspoon of brandy as a preservative, then add the blossom remedies.

Take the stock bottle or stock bottles of the chosen blossom remedies and put 3 drops of each into the 30ml. pipette bottle. A second golden guideline is; 1 drop from the stock bottle(s) to 10ml of spring water. There is no need to shake the bottle before use as it only contains the vibrations of the plants and has no actual material content.

Then take 4 drops from the user bottle and drip it under the tongue. If you touch the dropper with the tongue, mould may develop in the bottle. Repeat taking the blossom remedies at least 4 to 6 times a day.

Flower remedies are not a substitute for medication and do not replace doctors or medical specialists. Please note that in case of doubt you should always consult a doctor.
