After I left TF I was forbidden to see my own kids and I couldn't even find out where they were. This together with the trauma of leaving kept me in deep agonizing depression.
I was teaching English at the time and one of my private students I had when she knew what I was going through, she offered to make up a flower essence potion for me. Since she was a distributer of it she had all of the types.
I told her I didn't believe in that kind of thing, but she said "go ahead and try it, it couldn't hurt you and if it doesn't help any you've lost nothing". She went on to say that after I took it, it would make a believer of me.
It's a long story how she went through the process of selecting the essences that were right for my need, so I'll skip that part.
But to make a long story short, I was in emotional and spiritual AGONY. I was willing to try anything. Unbelieving, I put some drops on my tongue. Would you believe it? The depression was relieved the instant that the first drop touched my tongue. It was like a true miracle.
I asked her what was in those drops and she said chemically speaking all there it was was purified water and a few drops of brandy to preserve the water.
It was a real God-send to me. I told this to some friends of ours who were associate members of the Family and the sister said, "You really have to be careful of those things, you might get possessed". Well, that just goes to show you how superstitious people in the Family are.
But let me tell you, flower essences really work!
