Hope

As the lockdowns and other restrictions here in Victoria continue it’s sometimes difficult to stay positive. I’ve started taking this essence again Coppins Creek – Hope. It’s message is as follows:

My heavy step now treads more lightly

Green fronds of new growth weave tendrils of light

Threads of hope move through my being

Like gentle rays of sunlight warming the earth

As a new day dawns

I’m trying to create the world I would like to see rather than focusing on my anger about the world as it is at the moment. But then again, anger can be a great instigator of transformation…

Zeolite

Over the last month or two I’ve been experimenting with zeolite to detox the body. I’ve taken a physical liquid form, a homeopathic form in different strengths, and this week I’ve made a gem essence.

Zeolite

I’ve found all the different forms of zeolite to be powerful in the removal of heavy metals and other toxins from the body. I have suffered from sensitivity to electro magnetic radiation for some years, and while I’ve experienced some improvement in my ability to cope with this through trying many different types of devices, supplements and other remedies, it is the zeolite that seems to have helped the most.

The gem essence is proving to be a very gentle way to detox. It’s message of one is peace and it has a soften action in the physical as well as in our expression of self. You can read more about it here…

Hope

I travelled to Cobargo in Yuin Country after the devastating bushfires. A lovely local took me into the bush near the sacred mountain Gulaga, the mother. Here we made an essence using Wattle and Gulaga water. I am still developing an understanding of this essence, but you can read the information I have so far if you click on the link – Coppins Creek.

Although this has been a terrible time for locals and the recovery will be long and slow, I saw so much positivity in people – the best of human nature was in evidence. It was a time of transformation for me and I think for everyone as we move into a future that is so unknown at this stage. Thank you Cobargo, I hope to be back soon.

Life Key – Mother of Pearl

I’ve made a new essence bringing the whole of the Life Key Essences series into a cohesive whole. This essence is a combination of 8 essences – The Elixir of Life, Peace, The Initiate, Shine and Yin, Yang, Redemption and Memory. This essence sits with Mother of Pearl – all colour.

And now we begin…

All has united and connected with source.  Balance between the realms is yours.  This key of connection and sustenance will allow for your new beginning, releasing the old world and embracing the new.  Much time, learning and healing has brought you to this place, and now, with flow connected to source and to mother earth through the bridge of the heartspace, you can step into your unified being with a relaxed confidence in your hard won direction. 

I’ve been taking the essence for a number of days now and I am now getting new insight to issues that I’ve been unable to shift for some time. I now see that I’ve been holding onto old ways of being, of doing work that I see as being “valued” by society instead of doing my own work in depth. Some part of me has always held back from fully embracing my work due to extreme fear. I feel that I’m now stepping out of this pattern into a new future.

Spirit Essence and a Sore Throat

Last week I started to get a cold and I nurtured myself with vitamins and homeopathics and herbal teas, but my throat was still sore.  Eventually it dawned on me to look to my own remedies for a solution.  So I took the Spirit essence for the throat chakra. My sore throat disappeared very quickly and the heaviness in my head dissipated – I felt quite different.

The throat chakra is where much of our creativity sits and here we find our voice to share our own creations with the world.  For a lot of us the idea of sharing our creativity, our inner world, can be a terrifying prospect.  We can bring ourselves down with a variety of negative mantras – “who am I to be doing this”, “I’m just crazy” or “everyone will think I’m crazy” – an endless list of internal abuse that keeps us in our stuck place.

On reflection I realised that my cold had started after I had begun to write a course about my essences. To present my work in this way had clearly awakened the old fears and doubts about sharing my creativity with the world and these fears had moved to the physical very quickly.  Doing my work is fine, but communicating, expressing my internal world, my creation in a new way pushed buttons.

Anodea Judith in her book Wheels of Life says that “survival and health in the twenty-first century will require innovation and flexibility.  Creativity is the key to unlocking these qualities.  We must honor it in ourselves and in each other.  We must honour the means which make it possible and protect ourselves from those phenomena which threaten to shut down this basic life force.”

We would all benefit from changing our negative mantras to positive ones and this simple change can help to break the patterns of the past and open us to a brighter, more creatively expressive future.

 

Knee Chakras and The Peach Colour Ray

Recently I completed a step in my work which was mapping my essences to the Peace Space Colour Rays.  While the initial job of mapping the essences was completed very quickly, I have been procrastinating ever since about putting the colours onto the website and doing all the other tasks that this shift in my work requires.

And then my right knee became sore.  The knee chakras are about moving forward on your path with joy and the Calm essence helps with this momentum by helping us to move into our still centre, so that we can move forward calmly, with a lightness of spirit and an open heart.  The Peach Colour Ray adds another dimension to this understanding as the Ray of Psychic Bliss and the Beauty of Blossoming the Future.  Peach helps us to embrace life no matter what, to take only the positive with us into the future and to let go and let God.  With Peach we can go with the flow because we have stepped into our still centre.

Today I have added the colour rays to my essence descriptions – just a note at the bottom of the page that states the colour and it’s broad purpose.  But what strikes me as I write this is how the essence and the colour work together so well and I wonder why I have delayed so long in this simple task.  And Peach also answers this – “Peach is … the giver of palliative care – to all that are dying to the forms and ways of the redundant past”.  And we struggle to let go of our tired old ways of being, of the restrictions we place on ourselves that hold us in the past.  But if we can let go, we can move into a future that is more than we could have imagined.

Calm essence and Peach, great partners in maintaining our momentum in the world, by taking us to the still point of total surrender.

Bush Essences Update

All of my Bush Essences are now available in the online shop 

 

 

 

 

The complete set now includes essences made at Mt Alexander, Mt Franklin, Mt Tarrengower and Charlton.  Please click here for a full description of each essence.

I hope these essences bring a taste of the magic of Jaara Country into your life.  The dry, dusty and damaged bushland in Central Victoria has so much beauty,   it’s harsh surface hides a gentleness and deep and ancient wisdom.  These essences have taken me on a journey of transformation, they have given me an expanded awareness of myself and a deeper respect for country.  I hope that they will take you on your own journey of transformation.     

 

Bush Essences

Over the last couple of years I’ve been venturing into the bush around Bendigo making a series of bush essences.  These essences are as much about place as about person, made in damaged landscapes that in some way reflect our inner terrain. The project is now finished (or so I believe for the moment)!

In total there are 11 essences.  The first 7 will go into the online shop today, the next 4 will be there soon.  You can read about all of these new essences here.

This has been quite a journey for me and my four legged essence assistant as we moved out of the backyard essence laboratory and into the open spaces.  We’ve both covered a lot of country and I feel quite transformed by the process.  I hope that these essences resonate with you.

Further information on Black Eyed Susan

I made this essence with a friend who has sent through more information about its application:

  • Understanding the Root Cause / Heart of a problem and what is needed to attain a desired outcome. Going beyond using positive affirmations to manifest change from within.
  • Seeing clearly what is within ourselves and others – either negative or positive. (For example – seeing beyond an apparent positive or friendly facade).
  • Creativity – the ability to create from deep within

This is similar to my description, but gives further understanding.

Nectarine Leaf Essence

I made this essence last September and was reminded of it when I noticed that my nectarine tree was losing it’s leaves.

If anyone has been finding the energy of the last week or so difficult, then I think this essence might be relevant.  I found it very relevant for me.

My message is one of strength – the strength of a unified auric field.  I act as a container for your mind, body and spirit as great change occurs.  I hold you safely within an auric egg that shields and protects you as the world evolves and you prepare to meet it.  Your personal inner transformation needs this strong shield in order to foster your own transition to the new.  It will allow you to grow at your own pace, while the chaos of the outer world is kept at a small distance.  It will enable you to remain true to yourself through turbulence and attack as you give birth to the new you for the new era.
