I’ve made natural deodorant in two different scents
This is very gentle and amazingly effective.
It’s almost mid winter and we should be taking some time out in front of the fire and slowing down. My Winter post from last year can give you more information on the Water Element and the kidney and bladder meridians. Nurture yourself with warming winter soups and stews. Allow yourself to relax and regenerate, don’t keep pushing on when you are tired. Resting now will enable you to be ready for action in Spring.
ESR – Self help with kinesiology
This very simple technique is also very powerful and it’s something that you can easily learn to do for yourself and others. Quite simply, the points in the picture below are gently held, either with the whole hand (easier than exactly locating the points) or with two fingers on each point.
For your own personal use you can hold these points while focusing of any situation that you are finding stressful. Call the situation to mind, think of how it makes you feel, any colours, smells or sounds associated with the issue. Remember to breathe while you are holding the points. You could also put an essential oil on your fingertips for greater relaxation.
You could now imagine how you would like the situation to be. Continue holding the points until you lose focus on the issue.
Now revisit the original stressful situation and see how it feels. Has it changed? Has the emotional charge reduced?
I once did ESR for my small niece when she fell off a swing. I held the points (whole hand over the forehead) and said to her “what happened”, she gave me a blubbery, incoherent answer. I continued to hold the points saying “what happened” a few times, then she took a deep breath, calmed down and went back to playing. The stress of the incident had been released. It is great to use with stressed children.
The points we are working with here are Gall Bladder 14. This is a neuro vascular point for many muscles in the body, including muscles that relate to the Central, Stomach and Bladder meridians.
I made this essence with a friend who has sent through more information about its application:
This is similar to my description, but gives further understanding.
Over the last year I have been developing a chakra clearing and balancing technique for the major and minor chakras. I work with the chakras that relate to my essences, clearing the front and rear of the chakra and supporting any work with essences, tinctures and colour. This technique allows for greater groundedness, more connection to spirit and better flow of energy around the body. It is nurturing and relaxing.
I am now offering these sessions to clients. Please allow 1 1/2 hours for each session – we may not work for that long but I prefer to have ample time to work deeply and slowly.
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.
On my recent holiday in Queensland some friends and I made a new essence
The Freedom to Travel Alone
Black Eyed Susan supports you on your individual journey. It helps you stand strong against outside influences and stops you being swayed by the opinions of others. The black eye, inside the orange creativity, gives you the ability to express your feminine/inner truth in your own unique way in your own unique time. Stand tall on your path.
As we move into the energy of 2017 and leave behind the heaviness of 2016 I think we could all benefit from the Black Eyed Susan’s gift.
Quince – my new favourite.
The apple trees in my garden are blossoming now.
Apple is my favourite blossom.
My first flower essence workshop was held on the weekend. Each participant made their own soul medicine and did a terrific job of tuning into the energy of the plants. I hope to hold more workshops in the future.
With our rainy Spring my garden has been full of weeds.
I did my best to have it looking nice for the workshop,
but there is still a lot to do.
