Heart Center Meditation


The Heart Center Meditation is a wonderful way of releasing the heaviness of the heart. It is considered a Zen Mediation for clearing the heart chakra. Begin by lying down with your hands crossed over your heart center with non-dominant hand over your dominant hand. Next, cross you ankles, in the same manner. Call in two angels to assist you. Image one angel standing at your left side, while the other stands on your right side.

Follow your breath slow and steady, with each cleansing breath notice your dominant hand becoming heavy, weight down from all the negative emotions that your heart has held and is now releasing.

When you are ready, raise your non-dominant hand to the side, palm facing up. This is to receive grace and healing energy from the angel on that side. When your Dominant hand feels full, hold it out to your dominant side and bring the non-dominant hand to your heart, delivering grace and healing energy to your heart chakra. The angel on your dominant side will cleanse and release the negative emotions from your dominant hand.

Repeat this process several times until your heart feels light and joyful.
Blessings to all!

New Moon Gathering

 New Moon Gathering

Picture
A New Moon marks the beginning of a new cycle, a fresh start in it’s cycle of waxing and waning. During this time the Moon is empty and receptive and full of potential. This is an optimum time to plant seeds of intentions for what you wish to manifest in your life.

We will create a sacred space and invite in the feminine energy, creator, Guides, Angels and Love ones as well as the four elements.  For this New Moon Ceremony we will have a small fire source to propel our words into manifestation.  The intention of this ceremony is to bring new energy which we desire into our lives with respect to our soul's contract. 

This is going to be an empowering ceremony.  As we set our intention and prayer for that which we desire to attract... Love, good health, a new job etc.; we will be making offering of herbs, salts and essential oils.  At the closing our creation will be distributed among the participants.  You will then have an empowering bath blend to nurture you when you need it most.

Raindrop Technique testimonial

This is a wonderful testimonial on the benefits of Raindrop Technique

"Having Central Nervous System damage and spinal surgeries decades ago, I had continual pain and spasms throughout my body. In 1991, I was completely paralyzed for a few weeks from the damage. Two wonderful friends and healers used the Raindrop Technique on me, and for the first time since I was 25, I was able to get up pain free. That night I had no leg or back spasms. Three weeks later, I had the great fortune to learn this remarkable technique from Gary Young. This remarkable technique has kept my immune system strong, my body pain free and far stronger than I've been in years. At age 62, I can easily say it has reversed most of the damage to my body and my ability to help others has expanded tremendously." Nancy Orlen Weber

Acne Scars and Dark Spots

Lemon Essential Oils
Lemon is one of the simplest and safest bleaching agents you will find. It can work wonders for darkened skin spots. The ascorbic acid or vitamin C present in lime juice acts as an antioxidant and this action helps to lighten the color of the skin. All you need to do is squeeze the juice from half a lemon and apply this with a cotton ball onto the area where the skin has darkened. Or you could even directly rub a cut lemon over the affected area to allow the juice to stick to the skin.

Leave on for at least an hour and then wash with water. But make sure you avoid exposure to sunlight when you have applied the lemon juice onto your skin or your skin will only get darker than before.

Personally. I would apply Lemon essential oil at night then wear sunscreen in the morning. keep in mind the essential oil is very concentrated. One drop may be all you need for a full application.

Goddess Fortuna

At a Shamanic Priestess Circle I was asked to pick a Goddess.  
The Card I picked was the Goddess Fortuna.

Fortuna
The Roman goddess Fortuna was the same as an earlier Italian goddess who presided over the earth's abundance and controlled the destiny of all human beings. Her name, derived from Vortumna, "she who turns the year about," came to symbolize the capriciousness of life and luck, the vagaries of fate as the wheel of life turns around. Her festival was celebrated in October.

Fortuna gives us a way to approach the ups and downs of life, a perspective that can offer us some equanimity as we proceed on our journey.

Cedarwood essential oil

Cedarwood (Cedrus atlantica) Essential Oil

Inhaling the oils of Cedarwood helps increase the ability to think clearly while enhancing the awareness needed for effective prayer and meditation. This is due to Cedarwood containing some of the highest concentrations of sesquiterpenes, which have the ability to pass through the blood-brain barrier and oxygenate the brain directly upon inhalation by way of the nasal passages and the olfactory nerves. It has also been suggested that Cedarwood oil might prevent senility and Alzheimer’s disease.

Cedarwood (Cedrus atlantica) has a warm, balsamic, woody aroma. It is relaxing and soothing when used for massage.

Key Chemistry: Cedarwood contains 98% sesquiterpenes which deprogram misinformation written in the DNA due to trauma, abuse, loss and limiting beliefs. Sesquiterpenes are considered the antidepressant in this valuable aspect.

A Quick Tip for Cuticles!




A Tip from one of my customers and daughter
Tanya an artist and sculpturist has trouble keeping her hands and #cuticles moist and hydrated. Clay is very drying on the hands and her cuticles are often rough and splitting.

One day while in ...the studio Tanya was search her bag for some hand lotion but the only thing she had was my #AncientOils Coconut Lip Balm. I never would have thought to apply lip balm to my cuticle but why not? It's design to hydrate and protect dry rough lips with Shea and Cocoa butter, and a combination of rich oils. According to Tanya it works great and smelled so good.

So next time your cuticles are in need of a quick fix, pull out your lip balm and massage a little on. You will love the results.

Quick tip for Frostbites!

Today is an exceptionally cold day with weather in Ohio of -5f. This morning, Monkey (my pug) and I had to take a short trip to the vet. Out of the car and just 30 feet to the door of the Vet's office and we were both frozen!

For those of you that absolutely need to go out in extremely cold weather here is a #Quicktip for handling #frostbite

What is Frostbite? Frostbite causes the skin to become pale, cold and numb from poor circulation after being exposed to cold weather. Frostbite typically affects smaller, more exposed areas of your body, such as your fingers, toes, nose, ears, cheeks and chin.

The key focus in this situation is to gradually warm frostbitten areas to restore circulation to this area.

As state by the Mayo Clinic website, "You can treat mild forms of frostbite with first-aid measures, including slowly warming your skin with warm water. Severe frostbite, however, requires medical attention, as it can damage skin, tissues, muscle and bones and lead to complications, such as infection and nerve damage."

Below is a short list of Essential oils that may help increase circulation. Just add 10 drops of oil to the warming water.

Ginger
Helichrysum
Geranium
Marjoram
