How far can your Stretch? April 25 2017

Happy Spring!

How do we energize the WOOD energy with Spring and how do essential oils help with that?

As the energy of spring takes hold, a lot is happening here.

The last month has been a whirlwind of activity, going from the highest of highs to the lowest of lows. Life challenges us that way to see how far we can stretch and bend before we break. It also pushes us to see our potential and creates confidence when we realize what we are capable of doing. That is the energy of WOOD right in time for the season of Spring! How we meet our challenges is up to us.

At the end of March I was stretched to give a friend a heartwarming ceremony for her wedding, a task I never took on before. But since I have been ordained a minister through the Universal Life Church, I thought I would do my best for her. After 2 weeks of preparation, the ceremony went beautifully, set on the beach in St. Pete, FL, and I added one more service listing to my 'bag of tricks.' Check out this video to see a snippet of the ceremony. https://youtu.be/ra-EYmP6vVo

She also had asked me to sing an original song for her which I had begun writing at least 6 months before and so, after many years of concealing my talent, I performed my song live for her and her family. It was a huge success and rewarded me with the sense of pride and accomplishment that also comes when the WOOD energy is in balance. Check out the video of the song here. https://youtu.be/K39jEM_q9_I

And then, after riding this high, I came home to a very sad situation. My dog Buddy had taken a turn for the worse. He was diagnosed with bone cancer in October, but due to pain meds and daily Reiki he was able to live happily since. It became obvious that his time had come to an end. So 1 day after coming home I laid him to rest. His presence in my life had taught me so much and he was like a child to me for 12 years so letting him go has been one of the hardest things I've had to do.

You may have had the opportunity to meet Buddy in our travels and he would want you to know that he loved you and wants you to find joy above all in all things you do.

He was the picture of the WOOD element- stubborn, persistent, patient, pushed through challenges, asked for what he wanted, and loved his walks. In his passing, I have come to use the LOVE oil to help with grief, the HAPPY to remind me what else I love about life and the SPLENDOR to support me in my purpose of helping others get closer to Heaven on Earth. You may like to check out the video on the WOOD element on the Wood Element webpage. It goes approx 15 min. Buddy is in it too!

It's Springtime again! May 03 2016

'Tis the season for dusting off those work boots and getting into your garden or taking a stroll through the park to see the cherry blossoms. So many things to like about Spring! 

With this renewed energy comes the spirit of growth and activity. It is important to listen to your body during these times to make sure you don't overdue and injure yourself. It is also important to realize that this is the time when the WOOD energy will be utilized so you can carry out whatever plans you make.

WOOD energy is associated with the Liver and Gall Bladder. WOOD is the energy of independence, responsibility, growth, activity, pushing through challenges, branching out, reaching higher, being decisive, making plans and carrying them out and juggling tasks. It is the energy of being in charge. 

What does this mean? It means that now is the time to start those projects you have been putting off, to set a goal and work on achieving it, to aim higher. It is also a good time to do a cleanse to clean out the toxins and take multi-vitamins and enzymes to help your liver work more efficiently. It is important to limit your intake of fats so as not to overtax your gall bladder. It is also a good time to stretch more and get massage because the liver governs the tendons and stretching the muscles takes pressure off the tendons to give you more freedom in your joints.    

It is also important to be mindful of your emotions. Anger can aggravate the liver and is also a sign of liver imbalance. Irritability, frustration, indecision are all blocks to physical health, particularly of the liver and gall bladder. You may even experience apathy, lack of motivation, or self-pity if your wood energy is imbalanced. Let's get to the source of why they are coming up and fix that! 

You need to work on your Wood energy if you :
  • are feeling stuck
  • having a hard time getting off the ground and moving forward
  • are depressed
  • are bitter or resentful
  • tend to believe you are right and everyone else is wrong
  • blame yourself or others for everything
  • tend to be easily angered or  frustrated 
  • tend to take on too much responsibility 

If you would like to keep your WOOD energy balanced, I can help with that.

  • I offer Spiritual Life Coaching via the phone or in person to give you solutions on handling the source of your stress, including empathic readings to get specific guidance for you and guided meditations for you to  find your center. 
  • My book Follow the Signs can help you find direction and I offer a free 30 minute session with each purchase.
  • I offer Jin Shin Do BodyMind Acupressure to release unconscious blocks to your happiness and relax your body in addition to therapeutic massage. (must be done in person)
  • I have created the following products for you to use on a daily basis to relieve your stress.
  • My new song, Keep Movin On, can keep you going when your steam has run out and has gotten me through some really tough times.

Remember, stress is the #1 risk factor for disease. Let me help you get a handle on it by working on the causes

SPLENDOR SCENT


It's a Winter Waterland! January 23 2016

Water...the element associated with the winter season

Life giving...reflective...forward moving...courageous...flexible

  • This Winter has brought us an abundance of water from the very first day. Here in the North East, we had rain for nearly a week at its onset, and now as we approach the big storm Jonas, we are given more time to appreciate the creativity, purity and power of water.    

    It's no doubt that the presence of rain or snow pushes us to be more reclusive- stay indoors more, hibernate and so when we do this, we are connecting with the energy of the winter season as well. While you are resting indoors, take this time to do more reflecting on your life and build your reserves by getting plenty of sleep, proper nourishment, bath soaks, stretching and of course, drink plenty of water.

     See our full blog post on the water element here 

    WATER is life-giving, as nothing can live without it, and thus its presence is related to our energy levels and level of Kidney "Jing" (life force energy). Accessing our vital energy happens by drinking water, deep breathing, resting, bathing or swimming, looking within to reflect on our deepest desires and being actively receptive to our innermost will. This means listening to and learning to trust that quiet inner voice. When water is sufficient, there is courage to move forward, flexibility, motivation, trust and flow.
    There is much to say about the qualities of water that are congruent with human life:  

    • WATER is life-giving. All of us need WATER to survive.
    • WATER is FLEXIBLE. To thrive, we need to learn how to FLOW around obstacles and be SELF-MOTIVATED (EMPOWERED)
    • We need to learn how to MOVE FORWARD and when to RECEDE when necessary. This requires TRUST and willingness to "SURRENDER". Intimate relationships are formed through trust and surrender
    • WATER COURAGEOUSLY goes where it needs to and is STRONG WILLED
    • WATER is reflective. We move through life more effortlessly when we can see clearly what our truth is.
    • WATER is aligned with the SACRAL CHAKRA in Ayurvedic Medicine. This area is associated with CREATIVITY, FERTILITY, INTIMACY, & SEXUALITY

     

    When our WATER (reserve energy) is deficient, we feel less able to navigate the rocky parts of life and can become stagnant. Stagnation can bring sludge into your life - a lot of what you don't want. It can also make us timid, fearful, untrusting, feel inadequate or inferior or make us suspicious of other people or things. Fear in turn then depletes our life force energy creating a constant cycle of stagnation.

    The WATER ELEMENT is linked to the 2nd chakra- the SACRAL CHAKRA- the seat of the Will, creativity, motivation, personal power and intimate relationships with self and others. The organs associated with WATER are the kidneys and the bladder, the two organs that process fluids to remove toxic material from our bodies.  The Kidneys filter the toxins and send them to the bladder for removal. Working in tandem like these two organs is representative of the power of intimate relationships that the SACRAL CHAKRA and the WATER ELEMENT represent. The ability to trust and surrender to another allows for flow and increased energy stores.

    If you want to know if your WATER is balanced, answer these questions:
     

    • In what areas of my life am I exercising strength of conviction?
    • In what areas of my life am I trusting or untrusting?
    • Do I rest when necessary to build up my reserve energy?
    • In what areas of my life do I exercise will power?
    • What motivates me?
    • Am I exercising my creativity?
    • Do I easily share with others or am I reserved?
    • Am I carrying unnecessary guilt or shame around my sexuality?

    Water imbalance can also reflect in the skin: too dry or excess water weight. It's important to know what you can do to control this as well.

    • Are you drinking enough water?
    • Are you taking in too much salt and putting unnecessary pressure on your kidneys to work harder?
    • Are you moving around to move the fluids or are you too sedentary?

    Fortunately we have essential oils that can help with all of these conditions as well as nourishing lotions and body butters, pH balanced soap that won't dry your skin more and bath salts to reduce impurities and water retention.

    Here are more Imbalances of Water and the blends that balance them:

    Yin Excess

    • Timidity
    • Low will power/ drive
    • Decreased sexual desires
    • Poor intimacy with self and others

    Dig your heels into the Earth Element September 30 2015

    Earth Element

    Late Summer is the time when Earth Element is at its peak

    Late summer is the time when the yang energies of spring and summer wind down to the yin energies of autumn and winter. The earth element lies at that pivot point, restoring harmony. As the mid-point, earth energy holds both the past and the future in the present moment and reminds us to hold onto what we enjoyed and look forward to more fulfilling times.

    In Chinese medicine, the earth element is all about nourishment. Associated with the stomach and spleen meridians, earth energy can express itself through dietary habits,  thought processes, self-worth, ability to support oneself, being overly nurturing to others, lacking ability to nurture oneself and more. Earth imbalance tends to produce a craving for sweets and its sound is that of singing.

    In the Ayurvedic tradition, the earth element is associated with the ROOT CHAKRA which is about laying a strong foundation, creating safety and security within oneself and ones family and being involved in the community. Earth energy in the root chakra creates a firm base of support from which to spring, is calm, centered, rooted in tradition, sympathetic and loyal. An imbalance here would mean disturbance in all the chakras above because there is no firm foundation.

    Conditions related to excess earth energy (excess yang):
    - When the need to solve other's problems leaves little time or energy to care for yourself and you become off-center, over-protective and lose boundary defense.
    - When you fear deprivation and losing connections with others
    - When you crave sweets and eat in an attempt to fill a void or emptiness
    - When you crave love and affection and being needed
    - Obsessive worrying and over-thinking
    - Self-pity, fluctuating self-esteem
    - Obesity
    - Water Retention
    - Intestinal Disturbances
    - Difficulty with change
    - Sluggishness
    - Tendency to overwork
    - Over attention to detail, obsessiveness
    - Sinus issues

    Conditions associated with Deficient Earth (Yin Excess):
    - Needing continued support to have a sense of self-worth
    - Not being cared for enough as a child
    - Lacking aggressiveness
    - Wanting to be left alone
    - Cold body temp
    - Constant yawning
    - Scattered, unfocused thoughts, forgetfulness
    - Anxiety, nervousness, fears, phobias
    - Weight issues
    - Insomnia
    - Overwhelm
    - Sitting all day

    ALL EARTH formulas were created with the purpose of grounding energy, relieving stress and relaxing the body. The color is red to correspond to the root chakra.

    STRENGTH
    (woodsy)
    with lavender, pine, spruce, patchouli, geranium and myrrh
    Promotes relaxed surety, settles a restless mind and uplifts anxiety and depression. The tree oils enable one to feel supported and in charge. Strength is also good for acne and insomnia. Infused with snowflake obsidian for inner centering and support.

    STABILITY (sweet and spicy)
    with cinnamon, vanilla, amber, sandalwood and frankincense

    Warm and nurturing making one feel at home, STABILITY is comforting yet energizing for sluggishness and speeds metabolism. A good grounding oil that doesn't induce sleep. It is also good for wrinkles and arthritis pain. Charged with a jasper stone for nurturing and balance.

    CHILL (earthy and heady)
    with lavender, mandarin, sandalwood, vetiver & frankincense

    Suited for worry and over-thinking, insomnia, RLS, IBS anxiety and stress. With sedating mandarin and lavender oils combined with grounding oils such as vetiver and sandalwood, this blend can provide restful sleep. It is also useful for burns, wounds & wrinkles. Charged with snowflake obsidian for grounding and support.

    http://dc-aroma.com/collections/wood-element

    WATER ELEMENT OILS: for YANG EXCESS
    Since excess earth can hold back water (as in using sandbags in a tidal storm) , it may be necessary to raise your WATER energy as well. EMPOWER, SURRENDER, and LET IT FLOW can be helpful. See more at
    http://dc-aroma.com/collections/water-element

    DECONGEST OIL for YANG EXCESS

    Save on WOOD ELEMENT products for Spring April 14 2015

    Spring has sprung!

    The time for shedding the layers of winter weather and motivating to the outdoors has come

    The birds are chirping, the weather is warming up and the daffodils are beginning to pop out of the ground. Thus begins the cycle of new life!
    It is only fitting to highlight the WOOD ELEMENT at this time.

    The WOOD ELEMENT

    The WOOD ELEMENT is representative of new life, growth, self starting, responsibility, independence, and reaching your potential. It is the element that breaks up the earth to move forward just as plants spring up from dormancy.

     Healthy WOOD energy motivates through frustration, is resilient, patient, steadfast, understanding and energetic. It breaks through the feelings of laziness, being stuck, lethargic, unmotivated or being too "down to earth".

    It is the energy responsible for helping you reach your goals, to "touch the sky." It also provides an escape from carrying the burden of caring for others, gently releasing stress and uplifting.

    The WOOD ELEMENT is also aligned with the Heart Chakra in the Ayurvedic Tradition, which is the center of love, compassion, understanding, forgiveness, and tolerance.   

    The WOOD ELEMENT is connected to the Liver and Gall Bladder Meridians which are responsible for planning and carrying out the plans. Together they take the responsibility of "getting the job done." The Liver carries out over 200 functions, including filtering out all that is impure and metabolizing fats and sugars. When the Liver is compromised, irritability or anger may present and when the gall bladder is compromised, we may have the feeling of being stuck. It is important to note that the emotions play a role in the health of the organ as well. A happy, chipper nature will result from and contribute to a healthy Liver and Gall Bladder.

    As such, the WOOD ELEMENT scents were designed to assist with this emotional balance.

    The HAPPY blend gives the added benefit of detoxifying, cleansing oils that help with water retention and cellulite to assist the liver with its depurative functions. The LOVE blend contains calming, sedating oils that assist with anxiety and hormone balance. And the SPLENDOR blend works primarily on the emotional body, relaxing but giving a feeling of grounding and support while uplifting.

    TREAT yourself to an at home RETREAT and explore the WATER ELEMENT January 27 2015

    WINTER is a time to retreat and "treat" ourselves

    With icy cold blasts of air, snow filled skies and puddles forming icy ponds, it makes me think of the purpose of the season. Winter is a time to reflect and rest. It is important to slow down during this time so we can replenish energy we expend throughout the year to increase our energy stores for spring growth.

    WATER is the element associated with Winter. WATER is life-giving, as nothing can live without it, and thus its presence is related to our energy levels and level of Kidney "Jing" (life force energy). Accessing our vital energy happens by drinking water, deep breathing, resting, bathing or swimming, looking within to reflect on our deepest desires and being actively receptive to our innermost will. This means listening to and learning to trust that quiet inner voice. When water is sufficient, there is courage to move forward, flexibility, motivation, trust and flow.

    When our WATER (reserve energy) is deficient, we feel less able to navigate the rocky parts of life and can become stagnant. Stagnation can bring sludge into your life - a lot of what you don't want. It can also make us timid, fearful, untrusting, feel inadequate or inferior or make us suspicious of other people or things. Fear in turn then depletes our life force energy creating a constant cycle of stagnation.

    The WATER ELEMENT is linked to the 2nd chakra- the SACRAL CHAKRA- the seat of the Will, creativity, motivation, personal power and intimate relationships with self and others. The organs associated with WATER are the kidneys and the bladder, the two organs that process fluids to remove toxic material from our bodies.  The Kidneys filter the toxins and send them to the bladder for removal. Working in tandem like these two organs is representative of the power of intimate relationships that the SACRAL CHAKRA and the WATER ELEMENT represent. The ability to trust and surrender to another allows for flow and increased energy stores.

    For the winter months, our focus is on all products that involve WATER and learning how to re-treat, replenish and restore energy. Each week a different product will be featured that inspires the accumulation or release of more WATER in our lives.

    Heal colds naturally with these blends and simple homegrown remedies October 23 2014

    Spotlight on: Med-Essence Blends (Autumn Special)

    Heal colds naturally with these blends and simple homegrown remedies

    I haven't been to a primary care doctor for an ailment in years. That doesn't mean I haven't been sick. I've gotten a cold at least once/year. But, the last time I went to the Dr. was when my husband and I came down with sinus infections together at least 5 years ago. I had never experienced so much pain in my sinuses ever before. He diagnosed us both with sinus infections and wrote a prescription. He took the meds, I did not. I treated mine with just my essential oils and actually recovered quicker. (Obviously, these results will vary for everyone.)

    Simple, yet effective treatment, essential oils were designed to be inhaled. They carry natural anti-bacterial properties so the plants themselves can ward off disease. Some have anti-fungal properties, others are anti-viral.  When they are used for sinus infections and upper respiratory ailments, they work quickly because they go right to the site of inflammation and fight the infection.

     

    So why aren't they recognized by doctors or more widely used?

    Medications are doctors preferred choice because they can be made in a lab and standardized. This ensures quality and potency for all batches. But this means they are synthetic and can cause side effects. With Pure Natural Essential Oils, your body recognizes their organic nature and works with them easily. They are absorbed into the bloodstream but don't typically last as long as a medication in your system. For this reason, repeated use is necessary to get a similar result. In addition, essential oils' potency varies depending on the weather and farming practices where the plants are growing. 
    You have seen some essential oils being used throughout the years in various ways:

    • Vick's Vapor Rub is made with Menthol from a type of Eucalyptus tree
    • Tea Tree oil is a main ingredient in Nail Fungus Remover
    • Clove oil is the main ingredient in Ambesol for toothaches
    • Birch oil contains the main ingredient in the popular pain relieving creams

    ALL of Divine Creations oils are selected for their quality, potency and fragrance. Each batch of oil is monitored for its quality before it is used in the blends. Then each blend is infused with Reiki energy, charged on a grid of sacred geometry and some are charged with crystals. This ensures the highest quality and potency the oils can deliver.

     

    Check out my prescription for fighting the common cold the natural way. (When prevention is no longer an option)

    1. I always supplement my essential oil healing with Hot water with Cinnamon and Honey for a cough or Hot water and Lemon for extra mucous.
    2. Take mega doses of Vitamin C  (I like Emergen-C)
    3.  Take B vitamins, Zinc, Selenium and Calcium/Magnesium with Vitamin D
    4. Eat almonds, walnuts, berries, green leafies, whole grains, broth and lots of Garlic!
    5. Get lots of SLEEP! The body needs sleep to rejuvenate. Resting in front of the TV is not enough. Sleep shuts your brain down from the Sympathetic Nervous System to the Parasympathetic to restore and rejuvenate damaged cells.


    *** These recommendations are intended to be a supplement to traditional medical care. This is not considered to be a substitute.  Use essential oils at your own risk.***

    Common Cold, Bronchitis and Flu Symptoms:
    - Rub 25-50 drops of Cold & Flu essential oil on your back 1-2x day ( is great for the muscle aches that come from being sick)
    - Rub 2-5 drops of Cold & Flu essential on the bottom of the feet up to 5x/day
    - Take a bath in Cold & Flu Bath Salts once/day until well (detoxifies the pathogens from the body, relieves muscle soreness and can induce a mild fever to fight the infection)
    - Place a drop of Decongest Formula on a tissue, insert in nostril and inhale for up to 15 min
    - Rub Decongest on the chest to open breathing passages
    - Diffuse and Inhale Cold & Flu oil deeply for 5-10 min to loosen and expel mucous.
    - Rub Cough Suppressant Blend on feet, back and chest to soothe bronchial tubes


    Sinusitis
    - Place a drop of Sinusitis Formula on a tissue, insert in nostril and inhale for up to 15 min
    - Rub 2-5 drops of Sinusitis Formula on the bottom of the feet up to 5x/day
    - Diffuse in a cup of hot water or diffuser and inhale deeply for 10-15 min
    - Inhale this blend as often as possible throughout the day

    Fall is the season aligned with the Metal Element September 17 2014

    This season's special is centered around the Metal Element. Autumn is the season when the Metal Element is at its peak. Metal is all about attachments: knowing what to hold onto and what to let go of. Learning what is beneficial and what does not serve us. This is a time of change as the trees go dormant and conserve their energy by allowing the leaves to drop. It is a time of taking in nutrients and letting go of that which does not serve. Just as nature has its cycles, so do we. Our bodies naturally begin to build up reserve energy by gaining weight in the fall/winter and our need to rest more becomes apparent. We also begin to let go of activities that may require too much assertion and very often get rid of things around the house that we don't need anymore, aka having a yard sale in the fall.   

    When we look at the Metal Element in regard to the body, it is easy to see how the Lung and Large Intestine Meridians are aligned with it. The Lungs' job is to take in and process air, absorbing the oxygen and releasing the carbon dioxide, while the Large Intestine's job is to take in and releases the waste of the body. We are constantly in the process of taking in and letting go. In this case, the oils that affect the Metal Element are those that help with respiration and stimulating the release of toxins from the body.

    Any of the Med-essence oils can help the process of breathing, but the most effective on the lungs are Decongest, Breathe-Ez, Cough Suppressant or Cold n Flu.

    Metal Blends to balance include

    Intuition: with Jasmine and Lemon to open up to intuitive guidance and release the thinking mind

    Unwind: with Rosemary, Cypress and Lavender to release toxins, negativity and calm the mind

    Focus: with Rosemary, Spearmint and Basil to release toxins, stimulate the uptake of oxygen to the brain and improve the ability to concentrate

    For the season of Autumn, all Metal and Med-essence products are 15% off. Enter coupon code AUTUMN2014MED or AUTUMN2014METAL at checkout.
