Guiding message:

Totemic Puma

I am Puma.  I awaken within you the vigorous energy, fierce power and ability to act without hesitation when the moment is right.  My patience and strategy, my preparation and precision, my fearlessness and decisiveness are now your own.  Allow my sacred medicine to fill your soul and bring courage to your heart.  You have come into your power.

Message:

You’ve got this.  Don’t let fear or hesitation hold you back.  Apply yourself fully to the task.  Let go of old ways of viewing yourself as incapable, scattered or wasteful of energy.  You have the ability to focus intently, to generate clear intention, and to achieve your ambitions through methodical steps and in applied will.  You have the internal resources you need for successful completion.  Even if no one else recognizes your potential and believes in your future success, in due course they will understand differently. By then, you will already be moving on to your next task.  Trust your sense of timing.  Have patience.  When you know it is the time to leap, do it without hesitation.

Insights:

Pig – Abundance

Element – Earth

Kin Essence – Shift focus to se what it is you already have

Pigs are highly adaptable; are able to learn new skills; and acclimatize to new environments and situations with ease.  With the few natural predators (thanks to their ability to reproduce quickly, and the fact that they can eat just about anything), pigs manage to align with abundance and positive outcomes, no matter what their surroundings are.  The invite us to find the abundance that is already bountiful into our life. 

One of the most intelligent animals known to humans, the pig is able to solve problems with ease.  They also have more physical abilities that we give them credit for including swimming, running at speed, and regulating their body temperature by using water and mud.

Mother pigs form social groups with other females and their young, whilst the males are mostly solitary creatures, (except when mating).  Within their communities, pigs play together, cooperate towards achieving common goals, and communicate using actions and noises.

Infamous for being “dirty”, pigs are actually quite clean and tidy animals.  They keep clean nests and allocate specific areas in which to go to the toilet.  Pigs are also unable to sweat; therefore, it is in their nature to cool off in water or mud.

The pig teaches us that when we take away the feeling of being threatened, we can automatically see and embrace the abundance of all things we cherish in life.

Moth – Awareness

Element – Spirit

Kin Essence – Lessen the distractions to lead you to a higher state of consciousness

Closely related to the butterfly, the moth starts its life as larvae; then becomes a caterpillar; before undergoing the epic transformation into a moth as their final stage of life.  If the butterfly is a toddler, then the moth is a great-grandmother; wise, worldly, gently and peaceful.  They lovingly guide us through our transitions with steadfast confidence and “eyes-wide-open” awareness.

As a master of disguise, the moth uses colors and patterns on it wings to confuse, distract, and warn off predators.  Interestingly enough, adult moths don’t eat, which makes them the perfect role models for choosing not to consume, and instead to simply absorb and enjoy the things in life that are free to all.  This allows is to reach a truly heightened state of being.

Moths also use a technique of celestial navigation to help position themselves in a straight path during flight.  In this higher state of awareness, they show us the art of trusting and knowing that theirs is a force at play much bigger and stronger than ourselves, and to see that no matter which path we take, it will be the one that the Universe has assigned us.

Moths are naturally drawn to the light, showing us that in choosing the path towards the light, we are saying “yes” to taking the high road.  In turn, we can shed our energy blocks so that we may let more light into our lives.

Lady Beetle – Luck

Element – Fire

Kin Essence – Never lose the child-like sense of wonder that cultivates your natural, lucky disposition

Lady beetles (also referred to as lady bugs/lady birds) have long been associated with innocence, luck, and child-like wonder.  These fascinating little darlings of the insect world come in many colorations, with the most commonly known being a bright red/orange outer casing with black spots.  The coloration is actually a warning to predators (such as reptiles and birds) to proceed with caution, as they are protected by noxious fluids in their bodies that are based on cyanide – meaning they are pretty poisonous to other animals!

When under threat, the lady beetle excretes a bad tasting toxin throughout its exoskeleton, acting as a deterrent to most clued-in animals.  They have been widely associated with being a messenger of luck or good fortune, perhaps due to their desired preference for feeding on crop destroying insects like aphids.  Farmers treat them with the utmost respect as they help to keep these insects at bay, allow plants to flourish, and humans to reap the rewards.

Lady beetles have always been one of the first insects a child will learn to love.  They are very small, cute and have such a beautiful and attractive look that it makes for a perfect companion and teacher to children about nature and its kin.

We can see that their gift to us is to remember that we can all create our own luck just by doing the things we were born to do.  Our original state of being – love – is all we need to create and have whatever we want in life if we simply remember this state we are born into.  The lady beetle reminds us to approach everything with a sense of innocence, wonder, and fascination without focus on or conscious knowledge of any underlying threat.

My Wisdom Story

“I worried a lot as a kid.  My mind spun with speculations about the bad things that could happen, and how I could avoid them.  My more sturdy brothers teased me for being such an emotional wimp.  At school I was called “the brain.”  I felt different and weird, and wanted so badly to fit in, to feel secure and be successful.

Ironically, my ability to anticipate problems made me a great programmer.  No one could find and fix bugs like I could.  Suddenly it was cool to be a nerd.  As a young man, I had wealth and independence.  Thrilled I could finally compete with my brothers, I dominated the conversation during family visits, talking endlessly about my successes at work.  Deaf to their contributions, I showed off my latest gadgets, gave unasked for technological advice, and blurted out inappropriate comments about how big my abs were after hiring a personal trainer.  I was too busy winning their approval to notice what a pain I was or how deeply I envied their relationships.

Then I’d go home and pull out my feel-good technology.  I’d play video games, watch TV and surf multiple dating sites at the same time.  Obsessed with “freeing up my time” to be more productive, I learned to operate my stereo, TV, Computer, car, solar panels and sauna, all from my phone.  But instead of freeing up my time, technology swallowed it whole.  The harder I worked to streamline my life, the more complicated it became.  I couldn’t stop the noise.

That’s when I had a breakthrough Insight.  Nothing I did, used or accumulated would ever make me feel more comfortable in my own skin, or like I truly belonged in this world.  In one fell swoop, I cancelled all of my subscriptions and threw my TV and gadgets in the closet.  And I got quiet.  Really quiet.

All I did was listen – at first to the noise in my own head, then to the sounds of my home, then to the birds in my backyard.  Slowly, I brought back technology.  First the music, then the podcasts – touching ones with stories about real people who suffered and prevailed.  That’s when I received the Insight that would change the course of my life.  I’d create a radio show for and in honor of the people who felt like me.  I’d call it “The Outcast.”  That was just the beginning.”

My Gift to You

I am here to invite out the rebel in you – the poet, the lover, the mad scientist, the revolutionary.  There is something only you can do.  Something your entire life has prepared you for.  It is time to take a risk, to shake up a system.  You may make waves.  That’s okay.  Whatever you do, stop listening to the status quo.  This is not about venting or blaming; this is about being creative and being open to love.  You don’t have to know where exactly you’re headed, or why, in order to trust your inner voice.  As you courageously forge a new pathway, don’t be surprised if your timing gets better and breakthrough Insights come your way.  Dare to be who you are, and you will ignite the creative rebel in others, wherever you go.

Questions for Contemplation

  • What are you worried most about these days?
  • Do you obsess over your worries, or drown them out with busyness, outer noise, or your own talking?
  • Do you ever feel misunderstood or like a misfit?
  • How might your need to self-protect be deafening you to others?
  • What might you do differently if you weren’t afraid of being different?
  • Have you ever had a deep Insight or Epiphany? What was it?
  • Track your worry throughout the day. Watch it shape-shift.

My Wisdom Story

“My parents were servants of the upper class.  To survive, they learned to be invisible and quiet.  But not me.  My mother said I was born with the urge to speak my mind.  And nothing made me more uncomfortable than silence.  So I made it my business to fill up my mind so I could full up the holes in the conversation.

As a young woman, my mind raced with knowledge, facts, quotes and theories, and my mouth spouted out complicated explanations for just about everything.  I offered the Truth wherever I went.  And I assumed that everyone knew what I meant, like they were inside my head.  I had no idea that I often said the wrong thing at the wrong time, or that no one felt they could get a straight answer out of me.

Until once, a cousin on mine got honest.  She said she was tired of being talked at, that what I said was so scattered and fragmented she could barely understand me.  She said that my words were actually hurting people.  I felt shocked, and ashamed.

But I also woke up.  And I started listening.  For the first time in my life, I slowed down enough to hear my parents’ story, and just how painfully silenced they’d been their whole lives.  I also realized that deep down their pain and anger lived in me.  All that time, I’d been carrying around a fear of being silenced, and of being seen as dumb and ignorant.

Now there are few things I love more than silence and Simplicity.  My home is a uncluttered as my mind.  Problems naturally dissolve when I’m around.  Things that seem difficult become easy.  When I listen, I listen deeply, and to all of life.  I prefer to go days without talking.  But when I do use my voice, I wait for the right moment, get to the point and speak from the heart.”

My Gift to You

Do you want to be happy?  I’m here to encourage you to keep it simple and to slow it all down.  You don’t have to solve every problem.  Find the clutter in your mind and environment, and then let it all go.  Notice how much more relaxed your body becomes when you release yourself from having to figure it all out.  I invite you to trust that life has its own way of dissolving knots.  Imagine yourself up above your life, looking down.  How many of the things you fret about truly need fretting?  Drop into a deeper stillness.  Go for a walk.  Smell the flowers.  Listen to the breeze.  And while you listen, breathe deep into your belly, and remind yourself that you don’t have to have it all sorted out in your head.  Try accepting the moment exactly as it is…and see what happens.  Beneath what you think…is what you truly know.  Let your knowing, gentle heart lead the way towards luscious Simplicity.

Questions for Contemplation

  • Do you tend to get tongue-tied out of fear, talk too much, or say the wrong thing?
  • Have you learned to remain silent, even though you have something to say? Do you rarely share what you’re truly feeling and thinking?
  • Where are you making your life more complicated than it needs to be? Where is  your life calling out for greater Simplicity?
  • Pick an area of your life in need of decluttering. Commit to releasing something (a thought, feeling, object, relationship) this week.

I hope that these offering have reached you in some way!

Much love and many blessings,

Kathy

Overall energy: “Worthy” – You are one of the loving spirits who has come to be in service to humanity this life time. This strong desire and need to give to your fellow man is embedded deep with your soul’s blueprint. You play an important role in the cosmic plan. This card has come to you today as Spirit’s way of giving you a much needed reminder – that you hold a great worth and value.
You can no longer question whether you are worthy or if you have value in this world. We all look to our physical world for confirmation. We question whether we are good enough, wanted, and needed. We want the world to tell us that we are doing well and that it wants what we have to offer. But your value and worth cannot come from anyone or anything outside of you.
Just as you are, right now in this moment – you are enough. It is time for you to begin to understand your own worth and value. Spirit is asking that you start now, to understand just how important you are. Your worth does not come from what you do or how you behave. Your worth comes from the fact that you are part of the One-Source. Once you fully realize this, you will play an invaluable role in helping others to discover their own worth too.

Messages: Frequency Shift ~ Surfacing ~ Intuition
You are about to experience a shift in your frequency and this card comes to help prepare you for the upcoming event. Being ready and knowing what to expect, can help you to get through the transitional period. A frequency shift occurs when the soul is ready for the next part of Its journey. Every time we allow ourselves to step out beyond our boundaries or find a way to get past our fears, the entire Universe celebrates. It isn’t easy to let the world see us, and Spirit knows this. But we are here to allow the deepest parts of ourselves to rise to the surface – to be seen and shared. The Surfacing card comes when we are about to face the challenge of stepping up and stepping out into the world. Whatever it is that is going to be asked of you will involve shining your soul’s light in some way, for others to see. There is also a strong focus right now on your intuitive and clairvoyant abilities. The Intuition card usually signifies an amplification of this functioning. Stay open to this flow. It is happening for a reason. You are being attuned to higher ascension energies which are affecting the planet at this time. And yes, this will be a permanent enhancement. The main thing is to trust the process of what is happening for you. It will become clear soon, how to use your gifts in Service.


Much love and many blessings,
Kathy

Twin Flame Energy Forecast

Twin Flame Energy Forecast for May 27th – May 30th 2016

Twins May 27th

The energy between Twins this weekend looks to be full of heart centered compassion and playfulness.  The overlying energies for the reading is the King of Wands so the Masculine aspect of the Twin Flame Union is overseeing and guiding the connection.  Passion, warmth, determination and courage will be ever present.

The Masculine aspect of the Union is embodying the energies of the Knight of Cups, The Moon, the Two of Cups and the Three of Wands.  The Masculine aspect continues to search deep within, knowing inside of himself that the connection he experiences with the Feminine is true love and yet is still confused about his ability to trust his feelings.  He experiences deep inner vulnerability when faced with knowing that the Feminine is hurting from his lack of acknowledgement of the connection between them.  He often feels lost at just how to communicate to his divine counterpart what he’s feeling and experiencing.  There is no doubt that this connection is real for him, it’s just that his current ability to express himself, his willingness to be authentic with the Feminine is still developing.  As a result of this he finds childlike playfulness and friendship as the outlet that he uses to connect with the Feminine.

The Feminine aspect of the Union is embodying the energies of the Five of Cups, the King of Cups, the Ace of Pentacles and the Page of Swords.  The Feminine aspect of the Union is struggling with her own emotional maturity in the face of not seeming to get what she wants from her Masculine  counterpart.  There’s very much the feeling of the traditional meaning of the Five of Cups as “crying over spilled milk” and a refusal to recognize the gift that is sitting right in front of her.  Her communication skills have a tendency to suffer when she’s in this state and instead of standing in her energy of emotional maturity she slides backwards in tactless, blunt even childish communicating.

The energies present in the Union itself are the Six of Cups, Judgment (masculine contribution), Three of Pentacles (feminine contribution), and the Queen of Pentacles.  Spirit is encouraging both Twins to take a joyful, playful approach to their connection this weekend.  Know that the Masculine aspect is being Guided towards awareness, wakefulness and truth.  The Feminine is being encouraged to be the emotional Master and build the foundation that the Twins both need even if it means currently working on that foundation by herself…she won’t be alone in her building efforts for much longer.  Twin Unions are being held in a place of deep spiritual knowing and emotional prosperity and abundance.  Sing, dance, laugh, move your bodies, listen to your Guides and enjoy a playful timeout this weekend…go have some fun!!

Twin Flame Pathfinders

Twin Flames ~ Pathfinder’s Healing Arts ~ An Introduction

Hi!

I’m Kathy Lytle and I’m a Twin Flame.  I’m reaching out to connect with others that are on this unique healing path.  As most of us have figured out by now Twins are here to help clear out old templates that are no longer serving purpose and help anchor in the healing energies that are of a higher dimensional vibration.  In order for us to do that most of us have had to go through crazy, painful, confusing life experiences on our own first and then of course be triggered on even deeper levels for healing and clearing once we’ve connected with our Twins.

As they say, hindsight is 20/20 and while you can’t always see or understand something in the moment, at least until you’ve gotten used to that particular practice, looking back offers the perspective of seeing patterns that have been in play in this lifetime, for multiple generations and even for multiple lifetimes.

For myself, so far my life path has included recognizing, healing and clearing the energies surrounding addiction, co-dependency, inter-racial marriages, poverty consciousness, the prejudices of wealth, religious prejudice, physical, mental and emotional abusiveness, sexual abuse, bi-polar and schizophrenia issues, depression, and narcissism.  Every single one of these topics is applicable to the males and females in my family – these are not gender specific in their expression.  Every topic is multi-generational as well as multiple lifetimes spent in the experiencing of these energies.  And there will be more work for me to do…it’s often said that spiritual work is like peeling an onion…your strip away layer after layer after layer.  I like to say that healing is a process not a one-time event.  It’s also an act of devotion that you revisit often.

In addition to living a life that has included learning and seeing these patterns in me and around me, in numerology I’m an 11 Life Path.  Which means that I’m not just an Empath…I, quite frankly, was born a master intuitive…my intuition never closed off during childhood to be re-awakened at a later date as is often the case in others.  Psychically I have been wide open my entire life.  I’m clairaudient (hearing), clairsentient (sensing), clairvoyant (seeing), claircognizant (knowing), pre-cognizant (knowing before), and telepathic (and trust me, I’m not just telepathic because I’ve met my Twin…it’s been with me since I was born).  I’m also a Dreamwalker.  From the time I was a little girl I’ve had family members and even animals come to me in the Dreamtime.  My spirit Guides, angels, and obviously my Higher Self and my Twin’s Higher Self have walked with me every night while this human form has been “sleeping.”

So not only have I found life to be challenging as a third dimension human but I also had no choice from very early on but to try and understand and work with the other multi-dimensional “gifts” that come with being me in this lifetime.  And I’m not going to lie…there have been major moments in the last 44 years when I was done…I swore up and down…I swore at God, Creator, the Universe and any Angel that could hear me that it was time for me to come Home…begging….please, don’t make me stay here.  The pain and confusion at certain moments are truly unbearable…and yet here we are…still breathing!

I’m reactivating my YouTube channel because I’m seeing and hearing that so many, many Twins are actively seeking the tools that are necessary to shift the energies to come into alignment and Union with their Twins.  I have been blessed with an amazing toolbox of tools that I have been actively developing and using with others over the last 22 years and it’s time now for me to reach out to my brothers and sisters here in TwinFlameLandia  lol ! I have two active Facebook pages and a website.  The links are included in the information section below.  I’m inviting you all to visit the Facebook pages especially and take a look around to see if anything resonates with you.  Feel free to reach out with your questions…I will respond as I can and please know that the YouTube videos are only getting started.  I will be posting here quite regularly with tips, meditations, healing energy sessions, and readings.  Most of these will be free…but some will also be pay-to-view.  And, as always, take what you will and leave the rest.  Some of the teachings that I offer will light you up and some won’t…they don’t have to…and still, it’s all good!!  I’m really, really excited to begin this Journey with you and I’m looking forward to connecting with you as our Journey’s call us to each other.  One Love and many blessings to each of you!  See you soon! Kathy

Distance Energy Healing Sessions

A ReUnion Process facilitation is an elegant and powerful spiritual technology to free ourselves from the cage of family, cultural, ancestral and past life programming.

The ReUnion Process gives us the power to rebirth ourselves into living and loving beyond all false illusions.

In so doing, the ReUnion process restores our mental clarity, emotional freedom and physical vitality, and opens us to a happy and successful life.

If, despite your best efforts, you find yourself having unwanted feelings or states, or having negative events repeatedly happening in your life, there may be underlying forces in you that are undetected or not resolving.

We have found that the source of these deeper and often undetected forces in our lives is much of the time ancestral. Some forces can also have been passed onto you from your past lives, or projected into you by the people around you.

Although there are many methods out there that will momentarily help alleviate your unwanted symptoms, your permanent freedom requires that these forces be found, understood and cleared. This is what a ReUnion session does.

A ReUnion session helps you discover, clearly understand and then lift away the forces behind your unwanted conditions and circumstances, once and for all.

If you are having material problems, difficulties in relationships, unwanted feelings rising up in you, or if you feel blocked, exhausted or unable to succeed, then there’s a good possibility that the ReUnion Process can finally free you from these problems.

Please feel free to contact me to begin YOUR ReUnion Process!!

https://www.facebook.com/LytleLifeCoaching/

“The ReUnion Process has a real genius for uncovering the root causes for what’s showing up in your life at any given point in time. Some things shift almost instantaneously, and other times it is much more subtle, over a longer period of time. This is such a rich process with impact on many levels – spiritual, mental, physical and emotional.” – M.K

Living, Breathing, Being: SMOKE FREE

Detoxing for Body, Mind, & Spirit

By: Kathy Lytle

 Congratulations – You’ve made the commitment to quit smoking!!  One of the most exciting aspects of quitting smoking is reaching the realization that you are an active participant in your recovery process and that there are many, many tools available to you to help you heal your body, mind, and spirit from the harmful addiction to tobacco.  One of the most important and loving things you can do for yourself now that you’ve committed yourself to quitting smoking is to follow a gentle detoxification program that will allow your body, thoughts and feelings to naturally and safely rebalance themselves.  When you assist your body with healing and releasing the effects of smoking you shorten the amount of time that you may experience feelings of irritability, hunger, mood swings, sinus/bronchial inflammation, headaches, and fatigue!  So let’s get started with:

WATER

Water, water, water!!  Quite simply, the only thing we need more than water is air.  Water is vital to our existence.   We can only survive approximately 7 days without it before our brains and bodies shut down and die.  Most smokers have a tendency to live in a perpetual state of dehydration.  The chemicals in tobacco cause blood vessels to temporarily constrict, a reaction similar to dehydration. When dehydration and smoking are combined, the body’s need for water is intensified. Smoking also accelerates how quickly the body metabolizes caffeine and, as a result, it aggravates caffeine’s dehydrating effect on the body.

  • “Every day, we can lose four or more pints of water (about two liters) through our breath, saliva, tears, urine, stools and sweat. The fluid that is lost must be replaced. If you exercise, especially if you exercise vigorously, you will need to increase your water intake by up to 50 percent. On average, you should drink at least six to eight 8-ounce glasses of water each day. But if you have exercised, cried, sweated or urinated more than usual, you may need to drink more, even up to 16 glasses per day.”
  • “Think in terms of “preventing thirst,” rather than drinking water “in response to thirst.” Thirst can be an unreliable signal in the early stages of dehydration. If you are thirsty, you are already dehydrated. Common signs of dehydration are fatigue, headaches, dryness of the eyes or nasal passages, inability to concentrate, dryness of the mouth, and dizziness. These symptoms, which many people experience daily and may believe are from other causes, may really be the result of lack of water.”
  • “Water not only cleanses inside the body, it cleanses the outside of the body and it can be a soothing therapy for the cravings and irritability that often accompanies changes in your tobacco habit. Soaking in warm or hot showers and baths, swimming in cool natural springs or hot spas, splashing your face with cool water, and soaking your feet in warm water are all recognized as effective tools for reducing stress and cravings. Water simply has the magical ability to make us feel better, inside and out.”

HERBS

Tea time!  Unfortunately the first thing that happens as you start to detox is that you feel even worse than you did before you started!! There is no getting away from this but it’s important to remember two things:  1) “This too shall pass!!” and 2) your body has been protecting you by hiding poisons around your body and when it gets the signal that it can start to let them go the priority becomes eliminating them as quickly as possible. The headaches, tiredness, grumpiness are what you would feel all the time if your body allowed these toxins free access to your systems.  The liver, kidney, and intestines have a hard time during detoxification and it’s important to support them and their natural functions!  Fortunately there are herbs and herbals teas that are specifically designed to not only cleanse and clear these organs but also to help the liver regenerate itself.

Herbal Supplement or Tea

The “What” and The “Why”

DANDELION

Dandelion is a traditional treatment for toning the liver and boosting the body’s filtration system. The leaves are full of antioxidants and nutrients including B vitamins, vitamins A, C and D, plus boron, silicon, potassium, magnesium and zinc.

**  Yogi Tea has a line of “De Tox” teas that are excellent!

MILK THISTLE (aka Silymarin)

The compounds in milk thistle that help zap toxins protect the liver by binding with substances that would otherwise interact with the liver and slow its function. They also help the liver repair itself and regenerate new liver cells.

ELDERBERRY

Elderberry is commonly referred to as “Natures Medicine Chest”.  It’s a “blood cleanser”, a purgative and a diuretic.  It is especially supportive in cleansing/clearing sinuses, lungs, kidneys and small intestines.

** Alvita brand has an excellent Elderberry Tea

BURDOCK

Burdock is a common ingredient in dietary supplements and teas that aim to detoxify and cleanse the body of pollution and toxic build-up. Burdock triggers perspiration and increased fecal elimination, promoting the fast removal of toxins from the body, and supporting overall liver, kidney and bowel health.

 ESSENTIAL OILS (AROMATHERAPY)

On an energetic level smoking is a suppression of the breath and therefore suppression of the basic life force in us. Many times we smoke to stop ourselves from feeling certain emotions, usually we associate smoking with stress reduction. On the physical level when we refrain from a toxic substance the body can finally start to process all the poison it has been locking away for years.  At the same time on the emotional level all the emotions that we were blocking and suppressing with the smoke can now start to be processed by the body too.  Essential oils and the practice of Aromatherapy are gentle and healing ways of reintroducing and reconnecting us with our breath.  They allow us to detox our emotions as gently as we detox our bodies.  It’s a way to heal the spirit by restoring mental and emotional balance.

 

The Essential Oil

The “What” and The “Why”

CYPRESS

Very healing blood/circulatory tonic.  Assists with liver/kidney detox.   Also considered a “lung oil” as it opens up the bronchi.  It balances the blood “chi” and assists with confusion and anxiety.

GRAPEFRUIT

Is a stimulant – VERY uplifting!  Good for depression and a renewed “zest for life”.  It’s also a good tonic and stimulates the liver and gall bladder to help produce bile.

JUNIPER

Juniper has an affinity with the Urinary system, it’s a diuretic and detoxifies.  Good for fear and apathy.  It helps clear heavy emotional energy out of the 3rd (solar plexus) Chakra.

LEMON

Is a stimulant and is emotionally uplifting.  Along with LIME, it’s considered a “happy oil” and both are often referred to as an “inner child oil”.  Even though lemon is acidic it has neutralizing qualities when it reaches the stomach and is good for reducing acid.

ROSEMARY

Stimulates ALL body systems:  Central Nervous, Circulatory, Digestive and Muscular.  It’s sometimes referred to as “The Herb of Remembrance” as it stimulates memory and awareness.  It’s helpful to those that are lacking courage, motivation and self-esteem.

THYME

Stimulates both the physical and the emotional body.  Good for respiratory conditions, lungs, coughs, and colds.  It’s also helpful to the Urinary system, kidneys and bladder.  It can help with feelings of exhaustion and in combating depression.

Essential Oils can be used and blended in a variety of ways including “Aura” sprays, massage oils, body lotions and bath salts for soaking in.

THE BACH FLOWER ESSENCES – support for Spiritual Healing

Dr. Edward Bach (1886 – 1935) was a medical pioneer who discovered the link between stress, emotions and illness decades before contemporary physicians began to acknowledge the fact.  Dr. Bach believed that “disease is in essence the result of conflict between Soul and Mind, and will never be eradicated except by spiritual and mental effort.  Such efforts, if properly made with understanding…can cure and prevent disease by removing those factors which are its primary cause.  No effort directed to the body alone can do more than superficially repair damage, and in this there is no cure, since the cause is still operative and may at any moment again demonstrate its presence in another form”…true healing attacks the very base of the cause of suffering.  Bach suggested that the natural state of the human body was to be well.  Only if the defenses were weakened by an imbalance in the personality and the emotions would the agents ever gain a foothold.  This is why he called the imbalances the true cause of disease.  It follows then that there are two supportive ways to approaching quitting smoking:  1) as an addiction and 2) as symptoms of withdrawal.

The Flower Remedy

The “What” and The “Why”

WALNUT

Helps with the adjustment during withdrawal.  It gives protection against the adverse effects of oversensitivity to certain ideas, atmosphere and outside influences.  It allows you to make or adapt to major life changes and to fulfill your ambitions free from the influence of others.

CHESTNUT BUD
