ALLES over Bachbloesems
All that I could find, written by Bach about Cherry Plum has been collected here. Bach regarded the text from "The Twelve Healers & Other Remedies" (1936) as the final and simple version.
Bach gooide de oudere versies van de twaalf genezers weg en verving ze steeds door de nieuwere, naarmate hij meer remedies ontdekte. De oudere versies zijn hier opgenomen met de bedoeling de ontwikkeling te kunnen bestuderen.
Gebruik voor het selecteren van een remedie a.u.b. "De Twaalf Genezers & Andere Remedies" uit 1936, zoals Bach bedoeld heeft.

Cherry Plum   -   Prunus cerasifera

September 1936: Wallingford Lecture (Collected Writings, pg 8/23; Original Writings, pg 161)

There are five types of fear, and therefore there are five remedies, one for each type.
The fourth kind of fear is that when there is a dread of the mind being over-worked, and the fear that it cannot stand the strain.
When impulses come upon us to do things we should not in the ordinary way think about or for one moment consider.
The remedy for this comes from the Cherry Plum which grows in the hedge-rows of the country-side around this district. This drives away all the wrong ideas and gives the sufferer mental strength and confidence.

CHERRY PLUMPrunus Cerasifera

Fear of the mind being over-strained, of reason giving way, of doing fearful and dreaded things, not wished and known wrong, yet there comes the thought and impulse to do them.
