Sometimes our HEF (Human Energy Field) needs a little help from nature…These aura sprays are excellent

Aura spraysIn this article, I will focus on 3 plants: Helichrysum splendidum (Everlasting), Boswelia carteri (Frankincense), and Lavandula angustifolia (Lavender).

A hydrosol is the water that is left from the steam distillation of plants or resins, to gather the essential oil. This water contains traces of the properties which are found in the essential oils. Because of this they prove to be excellent room sprays, skin toners, and waters which are added to medicinal and cosmetic creams.

How is this information relevant to us as Reiki practitioners or subtle energy healers?

Often, as light workers, if we are in a vulnerable state, we forget to protect ourselves from the negativity of those around us. We may find that suddenly we are feeling exhausted and negative, as though a dark cloud has descended on our bodies. At times like these we have a variety of options: Deep meditative breathing, self-Reiki, using the cutting-the-chords technique, using smudge sticks or incense sticks to clear our personal spaces, and so on. Aura cleansing using hydrosols is a powerful, and helpful tool.

Lavender Hydrosol is gentle, balancing for all skin types, cooling in summer’s heat, soothing sunburns, healing irritation, gently tones oily, dry, and mature skin, cleanses gently and safely. Lavender has always been recommended for fragile or damaged skin. The hydrosol makes a wonderful ingredient for face masks for all skin types, a gentle toner or cleanser; and a great mister to ease sunburn or windburn.
• A linen spray, just a tiny spritz on the pillow on a sleepless night. Children can use it as a “monster spray”. When afraid of monsters under the bed or in the cupboard, it is safe and gentle enough to let the child banish the monsters all by him/herself.

ChakraDiagramHello friends

I came across this article at Fractal Enlightenment. It intrigued me because it put two of my favourite subjects together. Click on the following link to go their page.

Have a wonderful week

“Give thanks for every living thing…Including ourselves!…

gratitudeOne of the five precepts that we learn in Reiki is: “Give thanks for every living thing.” Here is a video which Pedram Shojai and his team have made available for free for a limited time. It is called Origin.

While watching it, some thoughts that came to mind are:

* Am I living in gratitude with all that lives on this planet?
* Am I living in gratitude and treating my body as the intricate part of this ecosystem that it is?

I encourage you to take the time and watch this movie. It is just over and hour and a half long, so watch when you know you will not be interrupted.
