What does it mean to awaken? It is an expression to make active, to become conscious or to become aware of something. To awaken is to connect to the spiritual embryo, and spark the passion of desire in the pursuit of the development of talents as well as cultivate our potential. Awakening Mist carries the intention to connect with Amaterasu, the Japanese goddess of the sun. In one version of the Japanese mythology, Amaterasu retreated into a cave following a dispute with her brother. The world was cast in darkness and evil spirits ran riot over the earth. The gods all tried to persuade Amaterasu to leave the cave but to no avail. It was only when the gods set roosters outside the cave and made much music that she peaked out with curiosity. The gods had also decorated the surrounding trees with jewels and a mirror. Upon opening the blocked cave just enough to see what all the celebrations were about, she was blinded by her own radiance and beauty in the mirror. That is when she had an awakening, the realization that the greatest gift that she could give humanity in order to relieve suffering and darkness would be to bestow a light within the heart. A light which has the ability to radiate its brilliance and to flow with life. Empowering all to be like the one who makes the heavens shine! So how does one nurture their inner light and live full potential? How does one awaken consciousness? Creative exercise is an excellent tool to deepen one’s connection to the soul. It is not about being an artist, it is about empowerment. It is not about creating a work of art, it is about expressing oneself. It is about carving a space in which you give yourself time to work through an emotion, or a suffering in order to shift your perspective and see the opportunity in which to learn and expand awareness. Using Amaterasu - Awakening mist serves as a bridge from the emotional body to the creativity centre (or the second chakra), as well as creating the link from the creativity centre to the mental body via the passage of the heart.
The energies of full moon in January 2017 will bring forward qualities of the Cancer sign. While this is most beneficial for those who are born in this zodiacal sign, it can feel like an emotional roller coaster for those who are not. The Cancer sign at its best is ultimate feminine energy. Feminine energy as represented by the goddess Isis. An energy that is receptive, sensitive, imaginative, kind and highly intuitive. Feminine energy can be seen as the seed of unlimited potential just waiting for the masculine energy to spark the seed into full manifestation. It is the source of creativity. The potential of all that will rebirth. The language of a Cancer moon is expressed with “I Feel”. In this full moon, there will be a large push to “Feel”. The energy of this moon in Cancer can be intense and as such can greatly influence the uncovering of hard to look at emotions and truths. One can feel more vulnerable and exposed. Emotions and truths which have been deeply and darkly hidden, will seem to rise to the surface and be poked by those around you. Have courage, for the once emotions are honestly dealt with, the power of this full moon gives you tools to embrace truth which will allow you to accept, heal and rebirth. So how does one stay in balance when there is such powerful energy swirling about? Here are a few suggestions: Using essential oils such as those found in our vibrational healing products such as Courage (Horus) and Rebirth (Isis). Receiving body work such as Soundtouch therapy. Listening to some beautiful music while drawing, colouring or painting. Writing out a gratitude list and adding to it daily. Journaling. If you do not know how or where to start with a journal, start with “how do I feel today?” Explore the emotion. Then explore some of the roots to that emotion. Some prompting questions can be: have I had enough time with myself, with others, with family? What are my insecurities? What qualities do I have that make me like-able? What are the things that I like the least about myself that I can change? Have I been honest in my relationships? Am I being authentic? Do I need to forgive myself or others in order to move on? Comment below as how you work with your vulnerable side. Blessings from the Centred Being
January - a great month to start things that are new and inspiring. Whether it is goal setting for a healthier lifestyle, relationship with self and/or with others, career or creativity projects, remember that the driving force behind the success of these goals are your individual passion, motivation, enthusiasm and inspiration. Ask yourself questions that address the concerns that you have and the changes that you think that you can make. Do your goals truly reflect what you want for yourself, or are they reflections of what others expect or want? Once that your goals are identified the next step is to ensure that you keep things in balance. So through the process, how does one stay balanced and in centre? Being centred means having a reference point, a place to come back to when life and emotions and stress push you off balance. Being ‘centred’ is about finding the perfect point of balance. It is from this perfect point of balance that allows us to observe the action around us and stay detached from the chaos of it all. The blend of essential oils in our vibrational healing mists work synergistically with the whole body system to create a space for balance, enhancing the small changes that you are already trying to incorporate in your life. What is it that you do to stay in balance? Regardless of what it is that we observe in our own behaviours and lifestyles, it is usually the little changes that can make the most impact. The little changes become the goal and as we realize our success in being consistent, our resolutions are strengthened from within and much easier to maintain throughout the year. So thought for the day....how do you get in centre? How do you stay in balance? How does this practice help you commit to your goals? The winter months are a time for inner reflection and building the fires of potential that will burst into busy activity of springtime. Now is the time of building inner stores of vital life energy. Explore what brings you joy and connect to your individual vision. It is this vision which will fuel your desire and passion. Then the steps on the path fall more easily. With consistency you can nurture your dreams and you will see that the goals are achieved with seemingly little effort. Vision unfolds exactly as it supposed to in the time that it takes to connect with purpose. The Centred Being
The Three Treasures are the metaphysical points within our body that serve to remind us of our sacredness. Cultivating the Three Treasures is seen as an act of refinement such as refining vitality into energy, refining energy into spirit and refining spirit into space. The Three Treasures also represent the three steps in recognizing your path. 1st step in recognizing your path is allowing mystery to present and being able to respond to it. Opening up to the I AM. (what was just done with the beautiful SO HUM meditation) You are always you, nothing less and nothing more. Allowing mystery means to give up control. It means knowing you simply can be responsive to all the things that seem to come up randomly and that these in itself are the deeper revelations of knowing. It is TRUST. 2nd step is to see the signposts, your world, your experiences the people in you life and how you choose to respond within the co-creation of your reality become the signposts, the markers of your path. Your path is always unfolding before you. 3rd step is to have confidence and pure motivation. Confidence is the result of your capacity to trust. You cannot hold back, in the hopes of building more confidence. You cannot hold back from stepping onto your path once it is revealed in some way to you. Holding back is an indication that you are attempting to examine and rate your abilities. It is usually based upon fear. Instead, let your confidence be driven by pure intention, pure motivation, compassion, heart centred purity. Then your steps benefit you and others. Know that your motivations are sincere. Stay connected with your heart and trust. The use of the essential oils found in our harmonic blend of Three Treasures Soap, lotion and oil, the more you strengthen your ability to recognize the divinity within and recognize your path. The oils strengthen your vibration of gratitude and appreciation of what is, making it easier to see where you are going and this is never ending. _The Centred Being
