Extract from The Twelve Healers and Other Remedies, by Dr. Edward Bach
For those who cannot prevent thoughts, ideas, arguments which they do not desire from entering their minds. Usually at such times when the interest of the moment is not strong enough to keep the mind full. Thoughts which worry and will remain, or if for a time thrown out, will return. They seem to circle round and round and cause mental torture. The presence of such unpleasant thoughts drives out peace and interferes with being able to think only of the work or pleasure of the day.
Indication: For those who have unwanted thoughts and mental arguments
People who worry or have unwanted thoughts intrude upon their mind at all hours, or when you find yourself rehearsing the same arguments over and over in their head may benefit from White Chestnut. In White Chestnut state they may go round and round like a loop recording. This remedy can help bring thoughts in control and allow the person to solve the root cause of worry rather than allowing the worry to take over
I can deal calmly and rationally.
My mind is quiet.
