ALLES over Bachbloesems
All that I could find, written by Bach about Mimulus 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.

Mimulus   -   Mimulus guttatus


September 1936: Wallingford Lecture (Collected Writings, pg 8/22; Original Writings, pg 160)

There are five types of fear, and therefore there are five remedies, one for each type.
...
The second kind of fear is more common: and is the one which applies to everyday life.
The ordinary fears so many of us get: fear of accidents, fear of illness, fear of a complaint getting worse, fear of the dark, of being alone, of burglars, or fire; of poverty, of animals, of other people and so on. Fears of definite things, whether there be any reason or not.
The remedy for this is a beautiful plant called Mimulus; rather like Musk. It grows in the clear running streams and along the banks. Some summers it grows at the stream at Ewelme, which runs alongside the road.

To combat all fear. Fear of disease, of accidents, of unknown things. Fear of people, of relatives, of strangers, of crowds, of noise, of talking or of being questioned, of being alone. Fear of damp, of cold, of heat, of the dark. Fear of complications in illness, or of being incurable.

MIMULUS is full of fear. These people try feebly to escape their persecutors, but they seem hypnotised, and silently and without resistence suffer their fear. They generally make excuses for themselves.
