What’s Alchemy? 

First of all, you’re beautiful. You are the embodiment of light and love. Thank you for reading this article and seeking to expand your Self. It’s just wonderful!

Let’s get to it!

Over the past 30 years, people have become abundantly dependent on western medicine and less aware of the spiritual, healing, and rejuvenation powers of the natural elements around them. The internet has made things better in some ways, but, overall, we’ve all become a little lazy. 

Not too long ago, brilliant and proactive Moms and Grandmothers ran their kitchens like highly productive, scientific laboratories. They practiced creating tinctures and salves using recipes handed down to them from their ancestors. Every day brought new ideas and in-home exciting explorations. As folklore, family stories, and rituals were added to the mix, a family’s unique practices became their private, homespun alchemy.

When we think of alchemy today, we might conjure images of wild witches howling at the moon to turn an evil lord into a rat or angry wizards demanding that their Sorcerer’s Stones turn their piles of lead into gold. This is known as outward or exoteric alchemy. The idea being that we can change one substance into a complete and wholly different substance through rites and rituals. 

While I personally believe these things are possible, although not anywhere near probable, the idea that divinity arrives from the external is somewhat antiquated. In some circles, this debunked branch of alchemy is called “exoteric.” 

Mystical or esoteric alchemy is the other branch. Its aim is to inspire the awakening of our devotion to eternal consciousness. In this category of alchemy, every aspect is a metaphor. 

But wait, there’s more! 

Esoteric alchemy is based on the fact that we, as conscious, living beings, living within a three-dimensional reality, can affect the world around us through the realization of our connection to and embodiment of the universe. This shift in perspective can affect not only our lives, but the lives of those we love and serve.

Even the famous scientist Sir Isaac Newton, also referred to as the Father of Modern Science, had a high regard for all branches of alchemic sciences. Because of this, Isaac had the foresight to use alchemy during the early stages of his research, laws, theorems, and principles.

 

Thought to have begun up to 12,000 years ago, there is a large collection of notable alchemists who have left their mark on the ideology. This fascinating mix of prayer, invention, and manifestation thrived up until the mid-1800s, when science turned its attention away from the depths of the human condition and leaned toward researching shallow symptoms and capitalistic gain. In short, the industrial revolution brought the demise of alchemy, forcing many akin esoteric ideologies to hide under cover. 

This jarring change stunted alchemy’s potential trajectory and eventually shoved alchemy into the category of fantasy. Because of this, alchemy became known for its secrecy. As such, practitioners often chose multiple methods of protection to keep themselves and their loved ones safe from religious and government persecution. 

Sadly, with all the secrecy, we don’t know the extent to which vital teaching completely disappeared or were left behind. 

Luckily, with the birth of the Aquarian Age, many inventive, spiritual, and open-minded people are becoming liberated. Their collective awakening is giving alchemy a long, overdue, and well-deserved comeback. 

Because all truth is stored within the ancient and eternal Akashik Records, built into every living soul’s multi-dimensional fabric, all lost truths will emerge once again. 

While it would be impossible to highlight every alchemist who’s ever contributed to this transformative science, here is a short list of alchemists who have inspired me throughout the years. Each of these remarkable souls made a substantial impact to the collective consciousness of their times: 

  • Zosimos of Panopolis
  • Wei Boyang (AD 151 – 221)
  • Jabir ibn Hayyan (AD 721 – 815)
  • Rudolph Steiner
  • Paracelsus
  • August Nordenskoid 
  • Diana Di Prima
  • Leonardo Da Vinci
  • Nagarjuna
  • Alain De Lille
  • Carl Jung

I’ve written more in-depth about several of these alchemists, but I’d encourage you to take some time and research them (or others) on your own. You never know what you may learn along the way! 

 

Alchemy in Today’s World 

After alchemy’s downturn in the 19th century and the debunking of some of more bizarre exoteric theories, our beloved alchemy became widely known as a fake science tied to new-age practices and mysticism. It even began to draw criticism as being antithetical to science! 

Thankfully, there’s a growing population of awakened, enlightened individuals who understand alchemy for what it is – an effective pathway to personal growth, transformation, and empowerment

It can be used to heal and transform our bodies, minds, hearts, relationships, and overall lives. It can also help us serve others by expanding our empathic abilities and connections to the electromagnetic grid that is our Universe. When we magnify our connection and embodiment of this grid, we become very powerful. 

Meanwhile, when we shift our realities or help others shift their realities for the better, we improve our vibrations. This adds to power. 

Today, there are thousands of people exploring the secrets, symbolism, and ciphers used by alchemists throughout history. 

The original list of alchemical symbols includes many elements that are referenced within today’s periodic table. However, the ancient list holds far more importance than this. The old symbols have a far deeper meaning, intrinsic to the rituals and ideologies of alchemy’s traditions and history. There is great power to be found within these symbols!

 

Can Alchemy Improve My Life?  

Absolutely, YES! 

Toss out the garbage idea that alchemy is nothing but pseudoscience. Forget the notions related to converting metals to gold and other improbable claims. Let’s focus on real-world, real-life value.

It’s time to openly embrace the fact that as far as its useful, valuable, esoteric principles are concerned, alchemy ticks all the boxes. It provides a practical ideology and solution that can help humanity transform all of its sadness, conflicts, fear, pain, and other restrictions into a stew of energy available to our evolutionary processes. 

To be an alchemist is to enjoy taking right-action that leads to healing ourselves, fulfilling our desires, manifesting wonders, and shifting realities. 

You might be thinking, “That’s too good to be true!”

But it is true. And it’s 100% attainable for every living Being who chooses to nurture and empower their connection to the abundant, eternal light. 

Like all things worth having or doing, these ideals are only achieved through dedication and practice. Instead of feeling discouraged or overwhelmed by it all, focus on making small shifts in your life. While these changes won’t happen overnight, it’s quite remarkable what you can accomplish in one day or one year. 

What matters is that you’ve chosen to improve your Self and reality. You can use these free resources to get encouragement and review pre-written rituals, prayers, and mantras to help you along your journey to enlightenment

According to alchemy, we should engage in love-based, prayerful, and thoughtful intentional action in order to heal, promote, and enhance our lives and the lives of those around us. 

What are the primary tenets of alchemy?

  • Heal Your Mind, Heart, And Body
  • Serve Humanity With Love
  • Release The Past And Pursue Forgiveness Of Everything
  • Set And Achieve A Primary Set Of Goals And Aspirations
  • Attract the Most Illuminated And Loyal People To Your Life (Lovers, Business Partners, Friends, etc.)

By opening yourself and allowing yourself to be vulnerable, you get a step closer to creating miracles. They can only be born when we find ourselves in the most humble and pure state of spirit. Release your expectations, feel gratitude, and open your heart so you can speak to your soul!

While being vulnerable can also attract attacks from knuckleheads, remember that both positive and negative experiences are equal in their abilities to inspire our personal growth and eventual transformation. Whichever path brings to your liberation, embrace it and be grateful for it!

What are some ways that we can get closer to a universal connection to everything around us? Alchemic teachings are one path, but there are other methods of the same vein. This is why I love essential oils and gemstones!

 

What Are Essential Oils?  

Essential Oils are plant and flower extracts collected by a variety of methods. Most are extracted by steam distillation, a process that involves pressurizing plant material with a basic steam operation. Aromatic and bioactive compounds release into the steam which is then condensed, cooled, and bottled as essential oils.

Cold pressing and microwave-accelerated distillation are two other production methods. While it’s likely that there are few differences between the processes, in terms of benefits and application, it is also possible that these two options might lower vibrational frequency related to the oils. 

Ultimately, only you can know what will improve your connection with the universe and natural world around you. Try experimenting with different oils, but don’t fall for the ubiquitous marketing schemes that want to convince you their product is better because it’s all “farm-to-home, organic, blah, blah, blah, bullsh*t.” Don’t get pulled into their misleading slogans. And do not sign-up for those ridiculous MLM programs where you have to purchase a specific amount every 5 minutes. Fuck that. 

Do your due diligence and don’t overpay for something that is part of your birthright. 

There are way too many essential oils on the market to list all of them, but here are some popular ones that you probably recognize: 

purchase-the-personality-cards-oracle-tarot-deck

  • Sage
  • Pine
  • Tangerine
  • Lavender
  • Rose
  • Peppermint
  • Cinnamon
  • Chamomile
  • Myrrh

The raw materials are each associated with a certain attribute. For example, sandalwood helps you feel grounded, lemon cleanses your liver, and tea tree oil relieves skin inflammation, psoriasis, and dandruff issues, to name a few. 

 

How Do I Use Essential Oils?  

The great thing about essential oils is that there are many ways to incorporate them into your life. So much so that it can almost become effortless to enjoy them and reap their benefits. 

To Start:

Mix several drops of your favorite oils into your liquid soaps. This way, you can spell and feel them every time you wash your hands! There’s also incense and oil diffusers. The most common way might be massage oils.

A few drops of oil on your fingertips can be massaged into your temples, wrists, chakras, or tops of your feet.  These places are near veins and areas of thin skin, so you feel the effects more stronger than if you massage elsewhere. 

But that’s not to discourage you from incorporating essential oils into all of your massage sessions!

A controversial method is to ingest it. Most manufacturers will say they aren’t safe to consume, but I believe just a few drops can improve our vibrations and states of mind. Use your best judgement, though! Only you will know what is best for you.  

These lovely medicinal oils can also be used to assist in rituals, ceremonies, and prayers. One of my favorites involving essential oils is a heart-clearing ritual performed to cleanse your chakras.  

Don’t be afraid to create a custom blend to your liking. We might be alone in the universe, but these methods help us further elevate our connections with the divine and the eternal consciousness. 

I made these free rituals and declarations accessible to you with love. Use these to practice incorporating essential oils into your life. 

What other natural substances can help you invite feelings of joy, peace, love and abundance? Gemstones! 

I LOVE GEMSTONES! BRING ME THE GEMS!

 

What’s So Frickin’ Special About Gemstones?  

Gemstones are like little, pretty living Beings who love you and wish to reflect back to you – your nature – in abundance – and with more light! 

Every stone throughout all the universes and galaxies are born with genetic infusions unique to each. Similar to you, these attributes and footprints are exclusive to that individual stone. 

In Hinduism, it is believed that there are nine gemstones (also called Navaratna or The Nine gems) able to help us in this life. They are connected to our specific celestial forces. Wearing these stones can provide remarkable benefits for the specific purposes associated with the stone, such as protection from negative influences or experiencing a higher magnitude and confluence of light and love.  

Because birthstones were with us, upon birth into this world, they are often considered lucky and can expedite our journey to fulfill our desires, missions, and unfoldment toward the light. 

You’re probably familiar with your birthstone, but what you might not know is that those are probably different than the stones found in the original Vedic and zodiac lists. 

In the late 1800s and early 1900s, jewelers in both Great Britain and the United States created their own birthstone lists, associating one stone to each month and promoting certain gemstones for their marketability. 

Each gemstone has its own attributes and healing properties. The more you understand your personal attributes and negative tendencies, the better chance you have of choosing the gemstone that is most supportive to your situation. 

Should you avoid a stone if it isn’t your birthstone? No, not really. There’s no such thing as a wrong gemstone. In fact, if you feel drawn or connected to a particular stone, buy the f*cker! 

Choosing stones that are aligned to you will often return better results and lead to a healthier, happier you. 

Explore the properties behind each gemstone and try touching them when shopping in person. Pearls for example share some similarities with other gemstones: they help us connect to the universe and reconnect with creation, attune us to better frequencies, and even promote healing. But they also have their own attributes: they nurture purity, loyalty, faith, calming, and integrity, etc.

Now that we’ve looked at the connections between alchemy, essential oils, and gemstones, how can we make them make sense together?

 

Conclusion  

Every living Being is connected to every other living Being – and to all of consciousness – and to all of the energy through all of the cosmos, all of the realms, and all of the realities and dimensions, throughout all of spacetime. 

We are all connected to the All-That-Is, which spans across EVERYTHING AND EVERY THOUGHT. 

We’re each an embodiment of the universe which means we inherently have the ability to continuously improve our lives and environments. 

Everything we’ve discussed in this article speaks of opening ourselves up to the Divine and allowing us to become more aware of our connection with everything. 

By taking initial actions and embedding positive habits like prayer and meditation into your routine, you’ll attract and embody the light and power to grow stronger and more magnetic, change your current conditions, and manifest new realities. 

You have unlimited potential in EVERY DIRECTION! 

You are the embodiment of light & love!

If you practice positive intentions and actions, you’ll eventually uplevel your vibrations to the purest frequencies. 

Be careful though. For your own evolution, please avoid psychedelic drugs and dark rituals. Always remain in the light. 

Always. 

In all things, seek to move above and beyond the mind. Mind-altering drugs push us to live within or beneath the mind. If not immediately, over time, these types of drugs will harm, limit, or oppress you. 

While it’s true that a little peyote or mushroom might give you temporary mind-expanding experiences, these substances most often open too many doors and are built to birth distractions that will eventually inflame your inner conflicts, projections, and hang ups. 

Seek to become the light. Focus on love and become love. Focus on the rose and become the rose. 

If you desire to merge with God and embody your highest vibrations, then meditation, prayer, devotion to a guru, and love-in-action are the best modalities. 

YOU GOT THIS! STAY IN THE LIGHT! LOVE THE LIGHT! YOU ARE THE LIGHT!

 

Birthstones: How the Stars, Planets, And Elements Align Upon Our Births

Birthstones
Birthstones

When each of us is born, elements throughout the universe are aligned in uniquely specific formations. Because every aspect of creation is connected, our birth stars and planets are positioned in ways that are meant to impact our lives, both positively and negatively. Similarly, birthstones also have a great impact on us.

Inherent in these constellations and formations is a unique set of influences and energetic attributes. We can choose to move with these constructs; as if being whisked away on mini rollercoasters throughout our lives, or we can challenge them by understanding how they function, then continuously choose to improve our responses to them. 

Therein lie two potential responses to our birth influences and the resulting karmic flows: roll with it or rise above it.

What is a Birthstone?

While the stars and planets are working with the energetic aspects within the heavens to bring you to life and then guide you through to your death, there are other players in the game: gemstones. All the stones throughout all the galaxies and universes are born with energetic infusions. This makes each stone unique in its attributes and footprint. 

Hinduism tells us that the nine gemstones connected to your specific celestial forces can help you in this life. In Sanskrit, they are known as Navaratna or The Nine Gems. By wearing some of them for specific purposes; you can protect yourself from the negative influences that were found in the heavens at the time and place of your birth. This is why birthstones can be extremely valuable to us. They can help us break karmic trends, heal ancient wounds, and escape the harshest aspects built into the fabric of our life trajectories.

What is the Origin of Birthstones?

Our birthstones were with us upon our birth, knowing who we are and who we might become. It’s in this way that our birthstones can be lucky for us. They can expedite our experiences of prior life karmas and the timelines that lead to achieving our desires. This can result in having a “lighter load” during this life.

While there is no specific destiny for the specifics of your life, there are certainly destinies related to the attributes and conditions you will attract in this life. By exploring birthstones and other gems, and with an understanding of your Vedic astrology, you can improve upon the conditions related to each category (house) in your chart. Every person’s chart is unique and every stone has a unique impact on each of those houses. Knowing your chart means knowing the details of each of your categories (houses), which also means knowing which aspects are your most palpable influencers. 

Popular Jewelry Associations

In The United States and Great Britain, jeweler societies formulated their own lists of birthstones, associating one gemstone to each month. While some of these lists seem to reference the original Vedic and zodiac lists, some of the stones they promote are merely for marketing purposes. 

This is why it’s vital to get your Vedic astrology reading from a talented, intuitive professional. Your birthstones may or may not coincide with those promoted by the gemstone industry. 

That said, the original lists for Vedic and zodiac gemstones are strong and can provide a good first step toward welcoming gemstones into your life as healing and empowering tools.

Birthstones – Commonly Asked Questions

Are birthstones lucky?

Birthstones are lucky if they are aligned with your Vedic or zodiac chart. Also, they might be lucky if you feel a momentary connection to a specific stone. While the latter might be fleeting, it’s important to pay attention to the stones that you feel are aligned with you.

What happens if you wear the wrong birthstone?

There are no wrong gemstones. One stone might help you feel more peaceful, while another might help you experience expedited karma or a lightning-fast shift in consciousness. Even if there’s pain involved, your evolution might be worth it. That said, some stones can have negative impacts on us. Therefore, be careful to select the stones that are aligned with your astrological charts. Also, pay attention to how you feel when touching or wearing specific stones. Even though your chart or heart might point to a positive experience with a specific stone, it doesn’t mean you’ll have a positive experience with it.

Why do some months have two birthstones?

Some gemstones are connected to other stones. Also, there are primary birthstones for a given month or house, and there are secondary, third, and fourth stones. So, by being aware of your chart, you can improve the value that gemstones have in your life.

Use Your Birthstones To Help You!

Gemstones are powerful little amplifiers that can assist us in every area of our lives. When a gemstone is our birthstone, we receive even more power and presence from it. You might see your birthstone as your guardian angel. By inviting them into our lives, we can reap helpful benefits that we may have otherwise missed. 

I see all living Beings as a manifestation of the divine. Therefore, I talk to my house plants, vegetables in my garden, and the gemstones on my shelves and body. While they might be tiny, they are connected to the All-That-Is, as are you. Also, say hello to all the elements in your house. There is no “other.” There is only everything.

The Pearl’s Magic: A Mythical, Magical Gemstone

The pearl's magic

Nature is absolutely incredible – just look at the pearl stone! WOW! A Shutterstock Licensed Image.

 

When a pearl is born, it’s the result of irritation to the soft body of its host mollusk. This irritant can be a grain of sand but is most often a parasite. Because of this unique process, pearls are the only jewels created in partnership with living creatures. They never need to be trimmed, cut, cured, or polished. They arrived perfect and ready for enjoyment. Given their illustrious beauty, pearls remain one of Earth’s most treasured gifts. 

Pearls are the birthstone for our Gemini and Cancer friends born in June. They come in several shapes: Classic round, irregular Baroque, flattened Button, and Keishi “freeform” pearls. Their colors range from white to gray, and often have overtones that include green, gold, brown, purple, bright yellow, pink, silver, blue, or black, and are sometimes infused with a mystical iridescence. Pearls are quite remarkable.

The beginnings of these little wonders occur when an oyster, mussel, or clam attempts to soothe the part of its body that was invaded by a bug or granule. It does this by emanating a unique coating layer over the irritated area, known as nacre. The sea animal will add layer after layer of nacre until a beautiful, glistening pearl stone is formed. Natural and cultured pearls have similar dances, but for cultured pearls, the irritant (a bead or Mother of Pearl fragment), is surgically implanted in the mollusk. This profound process can occur in salt or seawater.

This is why pearls are considered to be the only gems born from a conscious, nurturing process, as their origin is a result of a living-Being choosing to self-nurture. It’s no surprise why pearls have a centuries-long reputation for their healing properties, especially in Asia and India. This might also be why pearls have a long list of metaphysical properties akin to crystals.

What is the Spiritual Meaning of Pearls?

Pearls have long been considered beacons of light for those who see the world through spiritual lenses. In Buddhism, Taoism, and Hinduism, the “flaming pearl” celebrates our wisdom and invites awareness of the divine. For healers and shamans, pearls have been known through the ages as conduits for relaxation and helpful for introspection. 

Pearls are known to have alleviated the symptoms related to lung diseases, including asthma, bronchitis, and tuberculosis. For magicians and wizards, pearls are used to negate the effects of poison and attract other-worldly protection. According to ancient and island healers, pearls can stimulate the heart chakra, reduce fevers, eradicate allergies, promote the growth of new cells, and help new mothers relax when giving birth.

The Chinese have long adorned their mythical dragons with pearls, who then invite wisdom, bravery, spiritual energy, and enlightenment into their lives. Native islanders have said that long ago, the wisest oysters would face the moon when adding their final layers of nacre to their creations. This is why the pearl stone is known to be representative of powerful feminine energy, a creator of life and worlds. 

Persians believed that pearls are born when the heavens thrust rainbows into the Earth’s soil. The ancient Greeks and Christians taught their children that pearls are symbols of purity and integrity. In some Hindu lineages, pearls are believed to strengthen relationships, protect lovers, and reduce the effects of karma. Japanese mythology tells us that pearls are the tears from healing spirits and mythical beasts. Many reports that pearls help them with self-acceptance and divine foresight.

As energetic magnets, pearls can deepen our connections to our core natures. When used in rituals, they can induce loving transitions, feelings of positivity, and vast earnestness in all of our relationships. While the Romans saw pearls as representative of high status, the Quran suggests that pearls can be found in paradise.

Do Pearls Have Healing Properties?

As many healers and shamans have reported, we can use pearls as we would crystals. As spiritual tools, pearls can are calming and centering, and can nurture our faith, loyalty, integrity, and purity. They also help women connect with their “inner goddesses” and men with their feminine attributes. No matter our genders, pearls can help us reach equilibrium with a vital, balanced, feminine energy. 

Perhaps most importantly, pearls embody specific frequencies and energy vibrations that can re-balance deficiencies in the human body and spirit. Just like all gemstones, pearls can be used to heal our bodies and create balance in our lives.

Pearls have been used throughout history to treat the digestive tract, muscular systems, and skin. In ancient and Egyptian culture, pearl stone powder is considered a powerful tonic for beauty. In fact, Asian royalty has used pearls for centuries to prevent the development of melanin, which causes dark skin pigmentation due to age and sun exposure. 

Pearl powder helps to fade colored blemishes, reduce wrinkling and scarring, and eliminate the occasional pimple. It’s for these reasons and more that the Chinese have relied on the healing properties of the pearl for centuries. In many Asian cultures, pearls are used to heal everything from simple eye ailments to indigestion, serious heart problems, bleeding, and fever.

Are Pearls Good for Skin?

Even though Cleopatra died from consuming the dust from her crushed pearls, these stunning gems have become the obsession of hardcore health addicts. Chalkboard Magazine raves about it, “Pearl powder will not only put you en route to flawless skin on the outside but will also build precious mineral reserves on the inside.” 

Rich in calcium, magnesium, iron, silica and amino acids, pearl powder can help maintain strong bones and teeth, prevents osteoporosis, and improve the health of our skin. But is it truly safe to consume pearl powder? Yes! Pearl stone powder has been used by the most enduring cultures and for thousands of years. Chinese Empress Wu Zetian lavishly covered her skin with pearl dust with the hope of beautifying her body from head to toe.

To this day, the Chinese use pearl powder as a skin whitener and cosmetics, as do many other cultures. In fact, the pearl is widely considered to be effective in controlling the skin conditions of rosacea and acne. For hundreds of years, pearl stone powder has been helpful as a detoxifier and anti-inflammatory, while Ayurvedic medicine has been promoting pearl dust as an anecdote for a variety of poisons. 

Some say that if you consume a small measure of pearl dust, your wrinkles will begin to fade. To add to this power-punch, the host, sea animal’s nacre is so powerful that it can heal a variety of wounds.

Are Pearls The Next Superfood?

Pearls are packed with superoxide dismutase (SOD) and the virus/bacteria killer known as glutathione. The magnesium in pearls helps our bodies improve our levels of GABA – gamma-aminobutyric acid. Psychologists, psychiatrists, shamans, and healers alike tout magnesium as a friendly assistant in the pursuit of extinguishing depression, anger, unreasonable fears, anxiety, mental obsessions, and insomnia. You can use pearl stone powder in capsules, smoothies, salads, and your favorite beverages. With its healthy stockade of amino acids, this unique gemstone is a powerful addition to any diet. 

While the FDA has been hesitant to comment on the validity of these claims, the latest research has proven that pearl dust assists our bodies in the creation of antioxidants. Why do we love antioxidants? They’re the best line of defense against free radicals, which are the creators of many diseases and pre-disease conditions. Pearl powder is considered safe to consume in small quantities. Are pearls a superfood? You betcha.

Balancing Chakras and Moods

Whether consumed or held, pearls can help us balance our hormones, improve our attitudes and moods, and open pathways to positivity and joy. They can help us meditate, pray, focus, and sleep. What’s more, pearl stone powder can zen you out. Known as a potent Shen (spirit) stabilizer, pearls support mood stability and soothe us in a variety of ways. They relieve our nervousness and help us reduce the stress in our lives. It’s no wonder that the pearl has earned a reputation as an etheric matrix for the benefit of all life. 

When it comes to the major 7 in the Chakra system, pearls can help invigorate and heal your Sacral (1st or root/groin) Chakra, Heart Chakra (or 3rd Chakra), and Crown Chakra (7th Chakra, which is found outside your body, just above your head. These are the most vibrant Chakras in our systems. 

the-perseonality-cards-oracle-tarot-deck

Because the Sacral Chakra is the gatekeeper for energy, lifeforce, and sexual expression, it can also be the most damaged Chakra. Given the pearl’s ability to magnetize healing, peacefulness, and earnestness, it might be the best elixir for healing a variety of social, emotional, and physical damage. 

The Heart Chakra helps us pursue love in the world. When kept clean and energized, this Chakra helps us feel nurtured and supported in our lives. It helps us love more purely and innocently. This is also the Chakra that helps us improve our primary relationships and forgive. With more forgiveness in our lives, we have room for more life-energy. With more energy, we’re often more prosperous and feel more connected to the divine.

When we want to dissolve our temporary self-identities and related illusions, pearls can be our biggest ally. They protect us when we reach out to the heavens and they preserve our innocence in the pursuit of miracles. Pearls help us pray for ourselves and others. In that light, they can advance our evolution and help us awaken.

Different Pearl Types and Benefits

Whenever we hear the word “pearl,” most of us imagine the perfectly round, luminously-white gemstone. But there are many types of pearls, each with unique properties, and attributes. When evaluating one, it’s not about shape or color, rather, it’s all about the pearl’s surface luster, its brilliance, how it reflects light to the beholder. The more brilliant and mirror-like the surface of the pearl, the higher its’ quality. A dull or chalky surface indicates an inferior pearl. 

Here’s a handful of pearls you’ll find in abundance throughout the world:

Mother Of Pearl:

These inviting pearls heighten intuition, psychic sensitivity, and imagination. When holding these pearls, you can attract prosperity, protect yourself from negative influence, and transmute negative energy. They’re also helpful in protecting children, just like their namesake suggests. And akin to a Mother’s love, these gemstones can purify environments and heal our memories and heart. Thanks, Mom!

Cultured Pearls

These human-made pearls are perfectly round and among today’s most coveted possessions. Often grown in a variety of sea and lake beds, these gems are the backbone of the pearl stone industry. Pearls farms use oysters as their mollusk hosts and can be found in China, Japan, Tahiti, Australia, and Indonesia.

There are many brands and creators of pearls, including Akoya, Keshi, Biwa, Mabe, and Chinese freshwater pearls, all born from over 350 species in hundreds of protected streams, rivers, lakes, and other beds of water. Because they produce the most colorful and shapely pearls, the mussel known as Hyriopsis cumingii has become the favored birther in Chinese pearl co-creation.

Tahitian Black Pearls:

Tahitian black pearls are quite unique in the pearl world. They not only invite wisdom, but are powerful magnets that attract wealth, prosperity, and everlasting love into our lives. When we invoke the gods of fertility, they appear to us adorned in black pearls. While black might conjure images of emotional or spiritual death, the heart of this pearl invites our rebirth and transformation. The most exotic pearls can fetch as much as $100,000 for an abundant, necklace strand.

Pink Pearls:

Pink pearls work especially well in support of the Sacral and Heart Chakras. Wear them close to your heart, as part of your Heart Chakra meditation, and in conjunction with other Heart Chakra-centric crystals for the most healing results. Pearls can help restructure and protect our Sacral Chakras, which can open pathways to our emotional and psychological growth. 

Gold Pearls

These shining stars invite successful marriages, profitable ventures, divine guidance, and protection also. They are some of the most beautiful pearls in creation. Moreover, Gold pearls can be used in rituals that invite our ancestors to support our relationships and endeavors.

Abalone Pearls:

Abalone pearls are also known as abalone shells and have beautiful colors that encourage feelings of love, beauty, gentleness, peacefulness, and joy. It feels comforting to hold an Abalone pearl or shell. You might also enjoy rubbing them just like you would a magic- or worry-stone. 

Abalone shells can reduce liver heat and symptoms that include headaches, dizziness, spasms of the limbs, and conditions of the eyes. Abalone can strengthen the heart, protect muscle tissue, and help with digestion. Nicknamed “sea ears,” the Abalone’s flattened, oval shape and iridescent interior are adored and used by Native Northwest American Indians as natural vessels for cleansing, offerings, and prayers.

Earth’s Gifts

As with all gemstones born from the Earth’s abundance, when honored and used correctly, pearls can help reconnect us with creation, inspire our healing, and attune us to beneficial frequencies and strands of energy. Like all living, light-and-sound Beings, your pearls are your friends and can protect you and keep you safe. Love your pearls with gratitude. 

Empathy vs Intuition: What’s the Difference?

empathy vs intuition
One is a skill, the other is a person’s nature. A Shutterstock Licensed Image.

Embodying the pain of others is different than sensing the properties, conditions, and experience of the pain. Let’s have a look at Empathy vs Intuition in this article.

Intuition is an ability or gift whereby one or more of your senses inspires an awareness about a potential trajectory or event. For example, you might have a gut (physical) feeling or an image (spiritual sense) that someone will call you or that an impending decision will work out in your favor.

Empathy is the ability to consider, fully encompass, embody, or sense a person’s or group’s feelings, either in-person, within your soul tribe or family, or remotely. Empathy might emerge as a full-body experience where you can literally feel the sadness or grief of another person. In the case of feeling somebody else’s anger, empathy might appear as a rash or upset stomach. The overriding feeling of empathy is equal to the feelings of the other person.

The challenge for Intuitives and Psychics, who focus primarily on extracting information from a projected timeline or reality, is integrating empathy and compassion when they are helping others and themselves. The challenge for Empaths is to refrain from taking things personally when we feel or absorb energy from others.

Many Empaths, Intuitives, and Psychics have compassion and are kind people, but some highly sensitive people use the victim position/identity to take things too personally and to create self-pity, attention or drama, rather than use their gifts toward self-realization, healing, and light.

Because these types of gifts can be challenging, all sensitives should pray, chant mantras, do healing and light rituals, help the poor, refrain from alcohol, pot, and other drugs – and regularly clear their energies. Doing so helps us be earnest and true servants to our own evolution and the evolution of others.

Sending this with love and light!

How Essential Oils Can Help You Heal And Evolve

Essential Oils can heal you. A Shutterstock Licensed Image.

Our bodies yearn to connect with the earth and the elements. Even the latest research points to the fact that we feel better when we surround ourselves with natural surroundings or allow nature to envelop us. While we came from dust, it’s dirt, trees, rivers, and vast sky that gently nudge us from depression to happiness.

The more we learn about how the natural elements at our fingertips can help us, the more choices we’ll have to improve our attitudes and states-of-mind when we feel disconnected, lost, confused, or negatively impacted by a life-event.

“I believe that for every illness or ailment known to man, that God has a plant out here that will heal it. We just need to keep discovering the properties for natural healing.” ― Vannoy Gentles Fite

What Are Essential Oils?

Essential Oils are some of the loveliest substances found on planet earth, extracted from nature’s most beautiful living-Beings: plants and flowers! The most popular scents include Lavender, Peppermint, Frankincense, Orange, Ylang-ylang, Patchouli, and many others.

Most essential oils are extracted through the process of steam-distillation, also known as hydrodistillation. The process begins when the botanicals are packed into an enclosed compartment within a pressurized still. Water is boiled, and steam pressurizes the plant’s material. This results in the extraction and release of the plants’ aromatic and bioactive compounds into the steam. This vapor is a combination of water and scented oil, which are condensed during the final stages of the process. After the byproduct is cooled, it’s bottled and labeled as our favorite essential oils.

Click to readThe Herb Purslane Is A Nutritional Powerhouse

Other production processes include cold pressing (CP) and microwave-accelerated distillation (MAD). According to several studies, yet currently less widespread, microwave-acceleration and cold-pressing result in faster extraction times, cleaner production, larger yields, and potentially essential oils of higher quality. However, these processes may reduce the vibrational frequency of the oils. It also might be likely, in terms of application, benefits, and improvements, there are very few differences.

Only you know what will improve your connection to your nature and the universe. The most impactful results and research will stem from experimenting and learning by and for yourself.

Essential Oil Companies

There are many producers of essential oils. Most of them tend to market their oils using contrived, incentive-based structures like MLMs (multi-level marketing organizations) and misleading, hype-based lingo like “We produce the only farm-to-home organic oils.” It’s all baloney.

Once you cut through the weeds, you understand that essential oils are part of your birthright. You don’t need a membership card to invite these powerful fragrances into your life. Through mindful intention and research, you can attract quality, affordable essential oil product lines into your life.

“It doesn’t get much greener than essential oils: when used correctly, they are among Mother Nature’s most potent remedies.” ― Amy Leigh Mercree

How To Use Essential Oils

Essential oils can be used in a variety of ways, most notably to improve your feelings about life, others, and yourself. You can add drops of oils to your liquid soap, massage oil, and in some cases, beverages. You can place a few drops on your fingers and massage the oils into your temples, chakras, wrists, and tops of your feet (the places where your skin is thinnest or nearest to a vein).

While most Essential Oil packaging states that these oils should not be consumed, many people ignore this and do it anyway. Use your best judgment. I believe that ingesting a few drops of essential oils (ones that we love dearly) can only improve our states-of-mind and vibrations.

Use essential oils in rituals and prayers. Hold a bottle of your favorite Essential Oil in the palms of our hands and pray for someone to receive its attributes. Use oils to anoint the sick and bless your loved ones. You can also use essential oils to protect specific aspects of our life and health.

Before using an essential oil, I hold it in the palm of my hand, and I pray for it to achieve its highest possible vibration. I ask that the universe extend this vibration to those in need. Sometimes, I’ll use different combinations of oils to improve my energy levels and feelings. I’ll place a few drops in the palms of my hands, rub my hands together, then press my hands against my face. I’ll take five deep breaths through the nose and immediately feel an upward shift.

A Heart-Clearing Ritual With Essential Oils

One of my favorite rituals involving essential oils is to use specific oils to cleanse each chakra. Here’s how to heal your heart chakra:

book-live-intuitive-reading-with-paul-wagner

  1. Use rose oil to unwind (counterclockwise) your heart chakra and then peppermint oil to rewind the chakra (clockwise).
  2. Place a few drops of rose oil on your fingertips.
  3. Reach under my shirt, press your fingers onto your skin, at the location of your heart chakra.
  4. Move your fingers in a counterclockwise direction, making a small circle.
  5. For a few minutes, breathe white light and love into the center of your heart.
  6. When you’re ready, place peppermint oil on your fingertips and do the same in a clockwise direction.
  7. When done, rub your hands together and press them against your face. Breathe deeply for a minute or so.

There is an unlimited number of ways to use essential oils to improve your health, heart, mind, overall wellbeing, and connection to our divine universe.

“Labeled apothecary bottles filled with raw material oils lined the risers: flowers, resins, leaves, woods, mosses, spices, herbs, seeds, grains, roots, bark, and fruit. From the animal kingdom came fixatives: civet, musk, and ambergris. The absolutes, the resinoids, the essential oils.” ― Jan Moran

To create a custom blend, place 100 drops of several favorite oils into a small tincture bottle. You can make it more robust by adding carrier oils, including single uses or combinations of Coconut, Argan, Brahmi, Jojoba, Olive, Avocado, Grapeseed, and Moringa oils.

Use essential oils to improve your relationships, business pursuits, health, intuition, and reality. These oils are your subtle-body friends. You can even talk with them and ask them how they can help you. Chances are, they’ll answer you.

While we are each alone in the universe, we can enhance our connections with eternal consciousness and divine by connecting with nature and inviting nature-born products into our lives. This might include essential oils, Bach Flower Remedies, candles, wood-burning fireplaces, cotton sheets, hemp clothing, bamboo comforters, and anything else of nature that appears to you.

As you seek to improve your mind, heart, and health, consider embracing and exploring essential oils to invite feelings of peace, joy, and abundance.

How Sage And Similar Herbs Help Us Extinguish Toxins And Heal

Extinguish Toxins and heal
Sage can help cleanse your home and body. A Shutterstock Licensed Image.

Nature has given us an abundance of healing plants and minerals, more than we’ll ever need. The Earth, which also sources life from its sister realms, is flush with life. We have yet to discover some of its most unique lifeforms. If we’re conscious and proactive, we can continue to benefit from the ancient plant knowledge that is still accessible to us. In this article, you will know how herbs help us extinguish toxins and heal.

The premise is simple: we can restore ourselves using tinctures, herbs, and supplements born from the Earth’s wildlife. Whether it’s to remove toxins, treat organs, extinguish tumors, or find a more profound peacefulness, the trees, plants, flowers, and shrubs nearest to you might hold the secrets to your recovery and detoxification. At the very least, they might expunge some of the toxins that negatively impact our minds, hearts, and immune systems.

Living on Earth is not easy. Society has developed in such a way that it has become a complex contradiction. It builds infrastructures that support living, but it rarely nurtures or promotes life. To counterbalance this, we can foster a symbiotic connection with nature, not only to extract medicinal value but to create mindful bridges. You might consider caressing your favorite plant, cleaning her leaves with love, and verbally telling her how much you love her. Also, when you see a little creature flying in the sky, pour your heart toward his soul.

“There’s an herb for every system, every organ, every gland, and every tissue of your body. Mother nature has put medicine in our food.” — Bob Marley

While we might be limited in a variety of ways, all lifeforms can find power by uniting, protecting, and feeding each other. It’s in this way that the herbs growing on our planet are reaching out to us. They are the embodiment of life’s desire to expand and connect. They rise toward the sun with one mission: serve all life and give all living-Beings what they need to live, thrive, heal, and survive.

Here are some of the most potent and nutritious herbs, in various forms, that can help you relax, extinguish toxins, and heal what ails you:

Detoxifying Herbs To Burn

By burning specific herbs, we can cleanse our home, clear our chakras, and reach out to the heavens in prayer. We can also use the burning of plants to remove harmful bacteria and other antagonists from our bodies and environments. Here is a list of some of the most potent, burnable herbs for detoxing:

book-live-intuitive-reading-with-paul-wagner

  • Sage, White Sage, and Desert Sage/Rose
  • Cedar, Pine, Aspen, and Blue Spruce
  • Mugwort
  • Rosemary
  • Clove
  • Lilac
  • Frankincense
  • Lemongrass
  • Eucalyptus
  • Bay Leaf
  • Usnea (also known as Old Man’s Beard)
  • You might also consider burning Lavender, Peppermint, Spearmint, Calendula, and Palo Santo.

Many cultures use these herbs to clean their homes, places of work, physical and spiritual bodies, and chakras. They are regularly used during individual and communal prayers, rituals, pujas, and other divinely inspired rites. Native Americans and Pagans use Sage, Cedar, and Pine for spiritual purification, inclusion in medicine bundles and amulets, and to invite divine-Beings to participate in sacred ceremonies.

Scientists have observed that when burned, Sage disinfects the air by killing a significant amount of airborne bacterias. It also releases negative ions, which remove pollen, mold spores, bacteria, viruses, and other allergies from the air. Negative ions have another powerful benefit: they increase our levels of serotonin, which is proven to reduce depression, stress, and feelings of detachment from others. Seratonin also boosts energy levels, improves workflow, and increases creativity.

To safely burn these herbs, consider using an Abalone shell. These former homes of sea snakes and mollusks are the perfect containers for burning small amounts of herbs for any occasion.

A Prayer When Smudging Your Home

When burning sage and using the smoke to heal your home and body, you might recite this prayer:

Gentle and beautiful Sage

Infused with light and healing properties

Born from the original love

We ask that you purify our hearts, bodies, and home

Please dissolve all negativity and extinguish all toxins

Let your smoke and scent rise to the heavens

And be calling to all light-Beings

May they bless our home and the hearts of all who enter

Mitakuye Oyoasin, for all our relations

the-perseonality-cards-oracle-tarot-deck

Detoxifying Herbs As Food

We’re lucky to have access to a variety of spices and foods that can have anti-inflammatory effects and expunge the body of toxins. When consumed properly, the items on this partial list can help you with detoxification and healing in a variety of ways:

  • Turmeric and Curcumin
  • Dandelion root – also potent as a supplement
  • Cilantro
  • Wood ear mushrooms
  • Garlic – also useful as a supplement
  • Blueberries, Apples, and Lemons
  • Spirulina, Chlorella, and Wheatgrass
  • Beets
  • Ginger
  • Green, Rose, Peppermint, Chamomile, Lavender, and Red Clover Teas

You can add these foods and spices to salads, smoothies, and other meals, and combine them for miraculous effects. As with all things that you venture to consume, do the proper research, start with small quantities, and be aware of how each item affects you. Pay attention to potential allergic reactions along the way.

Detoxifying Herbs As Supplements, Tinctures, and Essential Oils

These cleansing herbs open the heart, invite peacefulness, and help us release toxins. This list is specific to supplements, tinctures, and essential oils, which you can also make at home.

  • Rose
  • Clove
  • Lemongrass
  • Cinnamon
  • Ashwagandha
  • Gotu Kola
  • Nettle
  • Red Clover
  • St. John’s Wart
  • Valerian
  • Lemon Balm
  • Lemon Verbena
  • Schisandra (also known as Magnolia Berry and Five-Flavor Berry)
  • You might also consider researching the benefits of Kava, California Poppy, Burdock, Lavender, and Passionflower.
  • Milk Thistle, Marshmallow Root, Parsley, Beetroot, and Ginger are potent herbs that can detox your liver.

Because of their individual and combined potency, be very careful with how and when you take these herbs, knowing their potential side effects. When seeking to do deep cleanses, always consult a doctor, Nurse Practitioner, or certified nutritionist.

To make herbalist supplements in pill and powder forms, copy the ingredients from popular brands. You can buy inexpensive measuring and production tools for home use that won’t break your budget. It’s incredible how simple it is to make capsules. For tinctures, soak your herbs for a few weeks in a jar full of alcohol or vinegar. This process releases the plant’s active compounds and its most beneficial nutrients. You can then pour the results into small tincture bottles and heal yourself a few drops at a time.

While the above are partial lists, they’re a good start in the pursuit of a cleanser for your home, body, and spirit. You’ll notice that Lavender shows up on all the lists – it’s because our bodies respond quickly and peacefully to Lavender.

It’s one of the only herbs whose smell immediately calms our nervous systems into beautiful stillness and well-being. This type of relaxation has immense health benefits that can improve our immune systems, lymphatic system, and digestive system while creating unsuitable environments for toxins, harmful bacteria, free radicals, and viruses.

Keep in mind that evil corporations and government entities seek to block our rights to Earth’s bounty. As such, there is always a chance we could lose at least partial access to what constitutes our divine right. If we educate ourselves along the way, we can learn to grow, cook, and activate herbs to heal ourselves, and our families, friends, society, and Earth.

As you lovingly wander this planet, learning about its magnificence, endeavor to love and defend all of Earth’s creatures, plants, minerals, soils, waters, and other lifeforms. They are you, and you are them. There is no “other.”

Seek Enchantment and Transformation through Prayerful Ritual and Ceremony

When we create the space and time to connect with the deepest parts of ourselves, we honor the ancient’s teachings and most enduring tribal traditions found on every continent on Earth. By committing to this deepening, we awaken our cores and establish trajectories leading to healing and transformation. To begin, we need only glance in the direction of our divine natures. In this article, you will know about the prayerful ritual.

With heart-centered intention and thoughtful action, we can clear the dust that clouds our souls’ perceptions and connectivity. Regardless of how lost or confused, we believe ourselves to be, in every moment there exists the potential for clarity. While it might feel daunting, even impossible, you have the power to reconnect with your deepest Self and the eternal consciousness. In the process of seeking our soul’s illumination, we improve our perceptions, vibrations, and the ability to feel nurtured by our realities.

When we seek divine clarity, we find many gifts:

  • Answers to our deepest questions
  • Changes in our perceptions
  • Changes in dynamics
  • Awakened potentialities
  • The ability to forgive and truly let-go
  • Improved awareness of our talents, attributes and personal magic
  • Lessened projection, fewer expectations, and more acceptance
  • Reduction in our attachments to self-limiting societal and religious constructs
  • Less desire to delude ourselves
  • Deepened humility
  • Increased connectivity and joy
  • Expanded abilities around creating and sustaining empowered lives

How Authenticity Leads to Happiness

authenticity
Authenticity has been on a long, tough road in pursuit of its place in the world. It began as impulses within raw, wild beasts. It wandered through forests and wilderness for many millennia. After merging with consciousness and connecting with the intentions of all living beings in all the realms, authenticity became bold and brazen.

For some, authenticity has involved secret knowledge and clandestine pursuits. For others, it has been used as a tool to manifest power and control. Over time, authenticity matured, nurtured itself, and found its most enduring and profound calling as the homing-beacon for people who have lost their way.

“Only the truth of who you are, if realized, will set you free.”

— Eckhart Tolle

What Is Authenticity?

Authenticity is a pure encounter with our core selves. It occurs in the present moment, without pretense. Its purpose is to serve our expressiveness and self-awareness. It does this by initiating experiences and absorbing the related energetic fascia. While it is continually evolving, our authentic nature is always available to us.

When we are not conscious of the ramifications of our temporary selves, we might deny ourselves authenticity and the complete experience of our natures. While social norms tend to oppress us, we always have the option to commit to returning to authenticity.

During this new era of social over-responsibility and political confusion, authenticity has found itself in a quandary. While its pure expression might confuse, offend, or harm others, it remains a living force that requires continual exploration and pronouncement.

To fulfill its purpose, authenticity must experience itself in some form without oppression. It must be permitted to know itself and give rise to its impulses, without judgment. While not all authentic selves are peaceful or benign, they must be allowed to live.

Authenticity is not only a strategic path toward self-awareness and personal evolution; it’s the key to living a full life. As life gives birth to itself without judgment, so must we.

“The individual has always had to struggle to keep from being overwhelmed by the tribe. If you try it, you will be lonely often, and sometimes frightened. But no price is too high to pay for the privilege of owning yourself.” — Friedrich Nietzsche

The Pathway To Authenticity

Some of us are living powerfully authentic lives. We live from and through the electricity that pours through us. We remain connected to our core nature in all activities and relationships. Those who have lost touch with themselves might only need to be reminded that they are inauthentic. Others might require a process to walk them back home. While no path is perfect or precise enough to meet every mindset and need, here is a step-by-step list of how you might achieve greater authenticity in your life.

Honesty
While it’s become socially acceptable to deny ourselves realistic public identities, there is nothing more important than being honest, especially when in dialogue with our inner spirits. When we experience genuine acknowledgments of our natures, at least within our thoughts, intentions, and prayers, we open doorways to healing, accountability, clarity, and transformation. Honesty also saves us energy and gives us the most stable foundation for enduring success and happiness.

Self-Worth and Self-Approval
We are not all great Mahatmas, but this does not preclude us from beckoning the eternal light and bathing in it. And while we might be able to request a miracle and immediately experience it, we must begin by accepting that we are worthy. In pursuit of our evolution, we do not need to approve of our transgressions. They are in the past and the past is a canceled check. It does not exist. We do not require approval or forgiveness from others. We focus on ourselves and on our desires to become new and drenched in the light of the universe.

Self-Evaluation
Under the umbrella of an approved self, we can joyfully venture into self-evaluation. If we engage humility and other nurturing attitudes, we can source the areas of our personhood that are most in need of change. By acknowledging our shortcomings, we can choose to improve them.

Self-Confrontation
After objectively evaluating ourselves, the next step is to speak clearly within ourselves about each aspect. With a focused, inner dialogue, we can reduce our stubbornness, dissolve some of our more indelible self-identities, and venture toward transformation.

Make Adjustments
While intentions are mighty little angels, without action, they are merely hopes. Making personal adjustments to our thoughts, ideologies, behaviors, commitments, loyalties, and relationships can take some time. It might be helpful to make gradual adjustments so that all of your most endearing aspects can remain in-step with your revised life-trajectory.

Create A Unique Living-Process
Once you’ve established your challenges and potential changes, it’s vital to adjust your operational plans. The processes and procedures you’ll want to change might involve habits, environments, hobbies, jobs, careers, relationships, and schedules. With a clear and executable plan, we can achieve almost anything.

Commit To Yourself
The most difficult thing for most of us is making a commitment to regularly uplift and honor ourselves. It’s not always easy. To ensure that we stay on our path, we might adhere to a strict schedule of self-validating practices like meditation or journal writing. We might also hire a coach, therapist, or engage a few friends in a homespun support group.

Encourage And Celebrate Yourself
We are all creatures of habit. When we make even the smallest adjustments, it’s crucial that we validate ourselves. While we should refrain from self-worship, each of us is unique and in need of specific forms of encouragement. Explore the styles of encouragement and celebration that feel most nurturing to you. Add these modalities to your daily routine and social schedule. It’s in this way that we engage the universe to support our new paths and achievements.

“As I began to love myself. I found that anguish and emotional suffering are only warning signs that I was living my own truth. Today I know this is authenticity.” — Charlie Chaplin

Achieving Happiness

While happiness might be overrated and contentment preferable, we always have a choice to pursue a desired emotion. In this pursuit, everything changes. When we’re intentional about our emotional states, we increase our chances of improving our vibrations.

Being authentic with ourselves invites forces and Beings from every realm to come to our aid. Our authenticity is the most magnetic part of us. By relinquishing temporary and outdated self-identities, and by focusing on the reality of who we are, we give birth to nuances that can protect our pathways to achieve the life-states that we desire most.

To begin, tend toward selfishness and give yourself all the room you need to nurture, awaken, and experience your authentic self. Peek into the nooks and crannies of your desires and personas. Ask for guidance to fully know yourself when you need it. After learning more about who you are and nurturing yourself for a while, the chances are good that you’ll tend toward wanting to help others. It’s through measured and focused selfishness that we can achieve fertile and stable selflessness.

“It takes courage to grow up and become who you really are.”

— E.E. Cummings

Always be yourself. Whether you feel a well of sadness in a grocery store or a burst of joy in a park, find safe and healthy ways to let it all out. If expressing your emerging emotions is dangerous to others, find ways to transmute the toxic aspects within your being so that you can move toward being self-expressed. It might be that meditation can assist you in becoming fully present. It might also be that meditation is your crutch.

To become authentic and whole, you can choose to embody a combination of gentility and ruthlessness. You might be hiding from your biggest disappointments or most enraging life events. You might be using them to create victim-minded or lower-chakra personality traits, thereby reducing your vibration to sub-par frequencies. You might be missing out on 90% of who you are.

Step boldly into the wilderness that resides within you. Consider performing sacred ceremonies and rituals to assist you in your rebirth. Remain hopeful and prayerful. In all things, continually embrace your divinity and all the beautiful aspects inherent in your birthright.

Bach Flowers Remedies, How Herbs Can Transform your Life

In your local Walgreens, CVS, Whole Foods, and other stores (online too!), you can often spot tiny brown vials with droppers and pretty labels resting on shelves above various vitamins and minerals. 

For many sensitive souls, these lovely little tinctures treat problems resulting from stress, sleep, physical chemistry, emotional trauma, and other ailments. 

For those who already know the healing effects of these remarkable concoctions, you can thank the pioneer of this unusual technology and product line, Dr. Edward Bach. Bach Flower Remedies help millions of people find peace, relaxation, and happiness. Bach’s work also spawned competitors through the years, some of whom use different processes to distill the essence of many varieties of plants and herbs. 

What’s your favorite Bach Flower Remedy? I love Star of Bethlehem because it seems to address several issues related to complex lives and challenges. 

We are all complex beings, continually ladened with energy bundles stemming from other people, many events from this life and others, and via portals that connect us to other realms. 

The Journey From Secret To Mainstream

Originally, all of humankind’s medicine came from plants, some of which were specifically grown to heal the physical body. This type of medicine, found in the forms of tinctures, salves and teas, has been relatively obscured over the past hundred years. As a matter of fact, much of today’s herbal medicine was considered witchcraft up until the late 1800s. 

Within the past 20 years, all of the most popular healing herbs seem to have experienced an upgrade, including the energies and essences of a long list of flowers. Many of these herbs and flowers are now included as part of traditional, western medicine’s prescriptions and practices. 

Truth be told, the ancients have been using medicine born from the earth for thousands of years. While Dr. Bach appears to have been the one to have invented flower essences, he was simply the man who perfected the essence distillation process and sponsored its acceptance by the mainstream. 

This took over 50 years, mind you. What a journey these flowers have been on!

Flowers, according to Bach, are just like you and me. They have their own unique energies and personalities, each of which connects them to the same planes as us. 

After realizing this, Bach started studying flowers and wrote his Bach Flower Remedies book. Soonafer, he began creating his lovely tinctures and selling them. He was quite the pioneer!

Who is Edward Bach?

Edward Bach (1886 – 1936) was a British Doctor who received his degree in London, England, in 1913. He was a medical officer and surgeon, devoting his life to the study of those tiny little creatures known as bacteria. Three years before his death, he started research in practical herbalism at Sotwell.  

In his 40s, Bach discovered how deeply connected he was to the world around him. He used his highly attuned senses and years of medical knowledge to match each of the herbs he researched to the human body. He would note how some had a natural calming effect, while others could nudge the subtle bodies one way or another. There were few known people doing this type of work. 

 

Disease is, in essence, the result of conflict between the Soul and Mind, and will never be eradicated except by spiritual and mental effort.

— Edward Bach

 

Bach was magic. He knew that it was just as important to take care of the spiritual body as it was to take care of the physical. He loved the more subtle aspects to being human – the emotions, soul, and energy bodies that envelop all of us. 

Since he was studying how to cure extra-physical ailments, he knew he didn’t need to use the physical body of the flowers. He went out every morning and collected dew from the leaves and petals, bottling it 50/50 with brandy to preserve it. He said it was important for the process to use all four elements:

Water – To collect and carry the plants powerful healing attributes.

Earth – The primary source for plants to sprout.

Air – A source of life and energy for the plants.

Fire – The sun, which activates the plant’s healing abilities.

The dew that was collected from the plant had been heated by the morning sun, letting the condensation take on properties of the plant. By adding the dew to other water and heating it up, Bach learned that he could grow the energy from the plant to fill any vessel, most importantly the tiny tincture bottles we see in stores today.

After a while, Bach started picking flowers and seeping them while they were housed in jars in the sun. He used the new tinctures to freely treat patients. With each new client, he learned about their emotional and physical stressors, share the appropriate flower tinctures with them, then jotted down notes about each flower property as it pertained to the patient’s ailment. 

Even though Dr. Bach passed in 1936, the same practices, ones that he birthed long ago, are used today to harness the healing benefits of all the flowers in his repertoire. 

Western studies have not been able to confirm Bach’s research, but many claim to find relief from his remedies. As with all medicine, sometimes it’s a bit subjective, or even hit or miss.

As a sensitive and intuitive person, I benefit greatly from Bach Flower Remedies and have come to know them quite intimately. I LOVE THEM!

The Subtle Body

In Sanskrit, your subtle body is called Ssūkṣma śarīra; a combination of your mind, heart, and energy. Some view the subtle body as the whole mystical or divine body, including our chakras, those energy centers that connect with all aspects of the Universe. Others believe that our subtle bodies are connected more intrinsically with our physical form, yet include our spiritual bodies. 

book-live-intuitive-reading-with-paul-wagner

Most people believe that the subtle body is everything that isn’t physical. The

 reality is that we have several subtle bodies within the whole of our overall subtle body. These subtle bodies include the energetic shapes around our chakras, our entire physical body’s aura or light-body, and the energies that our soul’s connect with throughout any given moment. 

While most people have never heard that we have a collection of subtle bodies, it’s all very simple since they can all be managed just like our physical bodies – with kind attention and consistent care.

For those who didn’t suffer from broken legs or appendicitis, The research of Edward Bach was groundbreaking. People who were deeply empathic, compassionate, warm, affectionate, and intuitive found that Bach’s work was life-changing. To Bach and his fans, it’s always been about improving the vibrations and healing the subtle bodies. 

Alas, flowers to the rescue!

 

Types of Remedies

Bach Flower Remedies heal the fractures of your subtle bodies and temporary self-identities, and open pathways to the highest of vibrations, including eternal love and light. 

By including these lovely flower essences in our daily routines, we can heal ourselves (or at least reduce the effects of) everything from stress to depression. Flowers are so powerful that many have ingested their essences to trample, transform, and eradicate their addictions.

 

Hatred, Anger, and Resentment

When people hurt or betray us, we might feel vengeful or hateful. We might also become despondent or harshly detached. When we are consumed by rage, we can become blinded to all the goodness that surrounds us. This blindness can diminish our ability to see the positive aspects of our lives. Using herbs like Beech, Cherry Plum, Heather, Holly, Star of Bethlehem, and Willow, we can sooth the most inflamed emotions within us. 

 

Panic Attacks and Anxiety

Anxiety is often caused by a slew of different inputs: stress at work, social pressure, or a lack of empathy and compassion for yourself to name a few. To help relax and soothe your anxious tendencies, consider Agrimony, Beech Cherry Plum, Chestnut Bud, Impatiens, Red Chestnut, and White Chestnut. For some, these essences are absolutely transformational.

 

Confusion, Daydreaming, Inattention, and Lack of Focus

It can be difficult to focus on things for long periods of time, especially for people who are very sensitive or those who have an intimate connection to the eternal muse.  In the modern day, we are forced to split our attention between multiple tasks at one time. 

 

For creatives and artists, this stressful modern culture can have devastating effects. To stay on task, try Impatiens, Elm, Clematis, Gentian, Vervain, Chestnut Bud, Walnut, and Larch. For artists, painters, psychics, and more, these lovely concoctions are considered nectars from the Gods. 

 

Courage, Confidence, and Low Self-Esteem

The hectic flow of life can often make us feel like cogs in a massive, impersonal system. This can leave us utterly powerless over tedious circumstances and the difficult people around us. When we lose respect for ourselves, we may find it difficult to try something new. We might even doubt the various skills we’ve long mastered. 

When you are feeling beat down and small, you might consider trying these flowers: Larch, Willow, Pine, Mimulus, Olive, Gentian, and Agrimony. Warriors, teachers, power-players, and creatives find these elements very helpful to living an empowered and active life.

 

Motivation, Depression, Insomnia, and Loss of Passion

Even the happiest of us can feel down at times. If you feel a little low, deflated, empty, or fatigued, you might need to adjust your subtle bodies to regain your old Self. Try using Aspen, Larch, Olive, Hornbeam, Mustard, Elm, Pine, White Chestnut, Gentian, Cherry Plum, and Holly.

 

Anguish, Sorrow, and Grief

If you can’t seem to shake the feeling of loss due to a major event or traumatic death. Try these herbs to initiate the healing process: Pine, Star of Bethlehem, Sweet Chestnut, Water Violet, Wild Rose, and Red Chestnut.

 

Shock and Trauma

We might find it difficult to compose ourselves after the most challenging events in our lives. Things we used to enjoy doing might now feel scary and, in some cases, create struggle  throughout our days. 

If you are finding it difficult to recover from a devastating experience, you might find these herbs to ease your suffering: Aspen, Cherry Plum, Star of Bethlehem, Rock Rose, Mimulus, Gorse, Sweet Chestnut, Oak, and Pine.

Healing with the clean, pure, beautiful agents of nature is surely the one method of all which appeals to most of us.

— Edward Bach

 

Sensitive people  may find that supplements leave them jittery, sedated, passive, devoid of opinion, or dulled. For those who struggle to use supplements, or those looking for a more natural way to heal their subtle bodies, Bach’s Flower Remedies can provide remarkable and sustainable relief.

Many swear by Bach’s “Rescue” Remedy (Impatiens, Clematis, Cherry Plum, Star of Bethlehem, and Rock Rose). Although it is his most famous creation, he catalogued a total of 38 species of flowers, further explaining how each of them affects the human subtle bodies.

While some find it easy to reject spiritual, mystical, and other fantastical remedies for a host of reasons, the results don’t lie. Most who try Bach’s remedies report positive reactions and report they cannot imagine a time before their existence. I completely concur, doctor!

Next time you don’t quite feel yourself, meditate on the parts of your life that feel compromised or difficult to handle. Explore the aspects that emerge, then consider your feelings and potential blocks. As you evaluate all the evidence that emerges from examining your subtle body, seek relief in Bach’s Flower Remedies.

In all things, remember that you are born from stardust and you are composed of light and sound. Everything you do, feel, express, and achieve are also made of light and sound. Heal yourself with whatever tonics you feel serve you best. When it comes to transforming and upleveling our realities, meditation, rituals, and prayer are among the most effective.

MAY ALL THE BEINGS IN ALL THE WORLDS, THROUGHOUT ALL THE REALMS, BE HAPPY!
