Revitalize your Life
“Forests, lakes, and rivers, clouds and winds, stars and flowers, stupendous glaciers and crystal snowflakes — every form of animate or inanimate existence, leaves its impress upon the soul of man." ― Orison Swett Marden
Most of us have experienced how revitalizing it feels to be out in Nature. Whether walking down a sun-dappled forest path, watching waves lap upon a shore, witnessing a meadow in its glorious bloom, or breathing in the cold mist of a waterfall, each place provides us with nourishing gifts. Some places help us feel refreshed and energized, while others help us to breathe deep and sink into stillness. Spending time in Nature enhances our well-being and resilience.
Each time we co-create an environmental essence, our awareness of the enormous healing energy in Nature’s elemental forces of air, earth, fire, and water expands. Preparing our environmental essences is often a response to a spontaneous event, such as Northern Lights and Full Moon Reflection. We make some environmental essences in locations with unique energetic expressions, such as Portage Glacier and Liard Hot Springs. The particular blend of the elemental and spiritual energy of different environments or natural events provides us with unique healing energy.
Environmental essences are a powerful addition to our work with flower essences and gem elixirs. While flower essences facilitate growth in spiritual consciousness, and gem elixirs help us anchor and embody these changes, the gift of environmental essences is energy for change. Environmental essences bring the earth's life force into our healing process, supporting the change and transformation initiated by flower essences. Use them whenever you feel resistance or lack of energy in your healing or spiritual journey and want to feel embraced by Nature.
Northern Lights: healing the heart
Prepared under a green aurora, the focus of Northern Lights is to support deep levels of re-patterning in the heart. When our heart forces feel scattered and disoriented, this essence can help us create an energetic matrix of connection based on Universal Love. This essence is supportive, cleansing, and rejuvenating. It is beneficial after an experience of deep transformation, especially when the experience has changed how we relate to others and the world.
Greenland Icecap: support for deep inner change
This essence embodies energy created by the natural, subterranean movement of the Earth’s crust. We prepared it in an area where two of the Earth’s continental plates slowly pull away from each other. This ongoing movement provides a profound example of surrendering to the inevitability of change. We need resistance in our lives to maintain stability, but we also need a balance between holding on and letting go. Greenland Icecap helps us find this balance so we can move forward in our lives.
Stone Circle: strength and definition for the energy field
This essence introduces protective energy into the aura, inviting us to relax, rest, and replenish our vital forces. It helps us replace necessary resources we lost through stress, misuse, or through trials and tribulations of life. Stone Circle is especially helpful for those doing healing work, as it helps us maintain openness and sensitivity without absorbing or taking on any outside energy. This essence is part of our Guardian ‘Healthy Boundaries’ formula and spray.
Liard Hot Springs: reclaiming our original innocence
This essence helps us cleanse the layers and layers of energetic grit and grime we have collected during our lifetimes on this planet. This cleansing brings us back in touch with the innocent truth of who we are—spiritual beings who have come to this Earth to experience being human. This essence is capable of clearing ancient patterns of self-blame and condemnation from our energy field, mind, and emotions—helping us begin again from a place of innocence.
Polar Ice: staying present with no anticipation of what is to come
This essence provides support when we are impatient and want to be in a different time of our lives. Such as when we are concerned with aging or are waiting for surgery, or if we are uncomfortable with being in-between relationships or jobs. Our challenge is to remain present with ourselves and to accept where we are in each moment. This essence empowers us to stay in a place seemingly suspended in time, where we can wait with no ties to the past and no anticipation of what is to come.
Rock Spring: restoring optimism for life
Rock Spring is the essence of hope and miracles. It embodies the constant proof that everything is possible. It is an essence that can help us find our way through seemingly insurmountable obstacles with infinite patience and never-ending trust. It opens us to the abundant generosity of Nature while encouraging us to open to unexpected gestures of flow: pleasant surprises, windfalls, and altruism from others. This essence is part of our Go-Create ‘Abundance’ formula and spray.
Chalice Well: awareness of spiritual support and guidance
This essence connects us to the profoundly personal and eternal support of the angelic, elemental, plant, and mineral kingdoms. Its message is that we are not alone; we are a part of the entire web of life and all-that-is, and we can draw upon this matrix of support whenever we need support to take the next step in life. This essence is part of our Calling All Angels ‘Divine Nurturing’ and Soul Support ‘Emergency' formula and spray.
Full Moon Reflection: bringing suppressed issues into the light
This essence is helpful for relationships, especially when we hold the other person responsible for our discomfort. It provides clarity and recognition of subconsciously projecting our needs and fears onto others. The full moon's light affects us all, and not always in subtle ways. This essence penetrates deep into our shadow selves to illuminate what lies unresolved in our consciousness. It allows us to release subconscious patterns that negatively affect ourselves and others.
Solstice Sun: opening to receive more light nourishment
Solstice Sun is a transformational essence and can have a powerful effect on our ability to access and move energy through our physical bodies. It is often indicated for those who suffer from light deprivation. It works by opening the energy pathways in our bodies so that we can receive more light and efficiently use the energy contained within it. This essence is part of our Lighten Up ‘Energy Flow’ formula and spray.
Portage Glacier: rejuvenation on all levels
All glaciers are massive generators of negative ions. They release negative ions into the atmosphere, where they cleanse, renew, and revitalize the air we breathe. This essence facilitates the cleansing and release of outdated thoughts, beliefs, and emotional patterns that are not useful, necessary, or contributing to our health and well-being. This essence is part of our Purification ‘Space Clearing’ formula and spray.
Tidal Forces: resiliency for living
Alaska has a quality of drama and extremes. The Cook Inlet and Kachemak Bay are particularly dramatic because of their extreme tidal fluctuations. Tides are a force of the sea. They are constantly changing, giving and taking, persisting in all seasons and weather, both wild and calm. Tidal Forces is an essence of rhythm and balance, loss and gain, of adapting oneself to the swiftly changing currents of life. It helps one release the old and receives the new with constant and unyielding fluidity.
Glacier River: embracing change
This essence helps those attached to the current form of life, even though every indication suggests that change is needed. Humans dance around this truth, thinking about and planning to change, but often favor the status quo. This essence is for those who don’t feel supported enough to make a change. It provides the strength to trust and let go of control, encouraging us to ride the current of the river of life.
