HEALING + AURAS

Our Auras connect our physical body with Spirit.

The Aura exists in relation to the 7 wheels of energy in and around our body, called the Chakras. The Aura surrounds our physical body like a rainbow of light and colors that extend right out into the universe, connecting us with the divine and every sentient being. The 7 layers of colour change based on our physical well being, emotions and personality. The Aura functions in relation to the Chakras and together with our electromagnetic field they make up what can be called the subtle body.

They exist to help to maintain mind, body, spirit balance in the body.

Our Auras are made of light and sounds, wavelengths and frequencies that vibrate outside of our visible spectrum. Although some people do have the gift of seeing Auras, most of us cannot. Other species, like the Bird, are able to see a much larger range of colours in the spectrum. I believe they can see Auras too.

When we are healthy, truly healthy there will be balance and harmony between mind, body and spirit. In this state of balance, the body will be free of dis-ease, energy and life force will flow freely and the aura will shine a beautiful rainbow in relation with our Chakra wheels. When we are in dis-ease, or dis-harmony, and unbalanced, in short, we become sick. When we are not in alignment with our Spirit we can harbour disease and illness.

When we are ill our Chakras are unbalanced, and energies may be blocked, these unbalances and blockages show within the aura as different colours or hues. The physical body and Aura naturally want to be in a state of balance and as we learn about ourselves, and let our true Spirit be free we can seek to achieve balance and wellness of mind, body and spirit. The Aura itself can be healed by finding out what is out of balance and seeking to bring it back into equilibrium, by using vibration we can change certain frequencies and bring health back into alignment. 

To get a sense of your personal Aura, you need to get in touch with you. The true you. Underneath it all. The Spirit waiting to be set free. Life picks away at many of us, we hide parts of ourselves for work or out of fear or necessity. Sometimes we hide so much of our true Self that our Spirits and hearts suffer, we become riddled with diseases of mind and body but we trudge on because we must. Bills need be paid, or someone needs our attention, etc.. But you and your health are priority. 

Self-care is our personal responsibility, and is the only way to collectively heal and move forward into this new age. Self-healing doesn’t need to be a chore. In fact it’s beautiful. It’s about taking care of you and coming into alignment with your divine purpose. Take the time to get in touch with your Spirit. Ask yourself the important questions. Are you Happy? Are you stressed? Do you take an active role in your own healing? When was the last time you danced or felt free? When was the last time you made yourself a meal with every color of the rainbow? When did you last communicate your emotions? Be honest with yourself. It won’t take long to find out if there are parts out of balance.

Even though most of us cannot physically feel or see our Aura, you can often sense it. The way you can feel someone watching you before you see them, or the way you can feel someone coming up behind you before you hear them. They entered your Auric field.

Every sentient being, from Wild Rose to Seagull has an Aura. Everything vibrating at different frequencies. A great dance, some notes coming together to create a pleasing song, others clashing and creating disharmony. When you understand that everything has a vibration and a frequency, and our Aura radiates out from our physical body extending into the Universe, we begin to see how we are aligned with natural rhythms. When we are in balance with ourselves, we are in balance with the universe and our divine purpose.

Do what makes your spirit soar and feel free.
Do what makes you feel jovial and happy.
Do what makes your inner child feel nourished.
Listen to the little voice inside calling out..

Come into alignment with your true Self.

And your Aura will shine with every colour of the rainbow ~

Dream Talk & The Importance of Listening to the Messages from the Other side…

I believe in the magic of dreams.

dreamy 2

I believe in the messages & inspiration that can come through the spirit realm into our subconscious. I believe we have the power to communicate with, visit and be visited by other spirits, even the dead, all while sleeping.

My dreams have been particularly vivid lately and I am of the belief that when our dreams become more vibrant, and the messages more clear, that is when it is most important for us to pay attention to them, to what is trying to come through them, to us, so that it may come ::through:: us. Our dreams and visions are unique to each of us as individuals, based on our own unique spirit, ancestry, past and experiences. This means that the messages coming through are for us to tell, and to deny them, or quiet them, would be to deny a part of the self. Our true, full self. Denial of the self can lead to manifestations of illness both emotionally and physically. I would like to start using this space to share of my true self, authentically. And for me, that means sharing dreams.

I recently had a dream that I was walking through a beautiful forest, and I came upon a perfect circle of flowering trees.. Apple trees I believe. There seemed to be light shining on and from this circle of blossoming trees and there were petals falling majestically.  I walked up and stood there in the center surrounded by the trees with light pink petals blanketing the ground.. I felt so safe and happy there. But I left.. I left the center of healing light and walked on through the dark forest in search of what? I don’t know.  I walked on and on as an uneasy feeling grew until I was at the edge of the forest, on a cliff overlooking the ocean. I wanted to go down to ‘mother ocean’, I remember calling her by name in my dream, ‘Mother Ocean’.  As I walked down to sea she tried to swallow me up. The water had appeared calm from the cliff but as I got closer the waves grew bigger. I tried to go back up into the forest but then it sealed shut, a large white industrial door came down and sealed off the forest.. and I was cast into the rising sea.

dream

The dream keeps reappearing in my mind, I keep seeing the circle of trees with their glowing light and falling petals. I believe it to be a symbol for my center. My heart center. When I am living in my truth, in my heart center, grounded in source, I am my ::self:: my true self manifested in this physical plane. Within that center, I am most in line with my true spiritual path. The message coming through is that I need not wander from my center, everything I seek is within and when I am in that space ::spiritually:: I will align with my true path, I need not charge on in look of fulfillment, it is here, it is now.

Thanks for reading folks! Please feel free to comment with interpretations or share your dream messages and experiences with the dream realm.

 

Much love flower sniffers! xx

Rose Magic

Collecting wild roses in the warmth of the summer sun ~ so blessed we are here in Newfoundland to have this sacred and medicinal wild rose growing abundantly

These precious ‘Rosa Rugosa’ petals are currently infusing in brandy with New Brunswick honey for a heart opening & healing tincture. 

The rose is my favorite healing flower, anytime spent with her is pure magic. 

Leo Fire

The energy in the sky moves from Water (Cancer) to Fire (Leo) with the New Moon joining the Sun, Mercury & Mars in the realm of Leo on July 23rd. 

Leo calls us to fuel our FIRE. Reminding us of the unique flame inside all of us. Leo says, do what makes you feel charged and fully LIT

Share the creativity that you’ve stored up inside your belly and let it birth forth like a flower in the summer sun.

Enjoy the gifts of this joyous season! Have fun and laugh and express yourself! Start a dream journal, colour, attempt that creative project you’ve been thinking of, nurture your inner child. 

With LOVE from a Leo on an Island. 

Backyard medicine pt. 2 

Summer is here in Newfoundland and medicine is growing all around us. 

The smell of sweet fragrant Wild Rose dances on the wind & nourishing Red Clover grows at our feet and delights our senses with it’s flashes of purple. Sturdy yarrow springs up among the tall grass with its fluffy leaves and distinct white flowers. Not only are these flowers therapeutic to look at and smell, they are very healing to many of the bodies systems. 

These are some of my all time favorite local Newfoundland healers. Seen here in this basket picked in my backyard to be dried for topical skincare oils. 

Also in the basket is some Calendula from my garden which will also be dried for infused oil. 

These herbs and flowers can all be washed and dried and enjoyed in tea, floral steams or prepared in tincture. If you feel called to these herbs I will be working with all 3 preperations this summer and offering them through my business Wild Flower Co. 

Enjoy this beautiful summer and the blessings it brings, take time to sit with and smell the flowers. Talk to yarrow, just don’t be surprised when she answers. ✨

Summer Sun & Mama Cancer

The sun is riding high in Mother Cancer, lighting up everything and bringing warmth to all of us in the North.

Like seeds we waited in the dark of our hard shells for what seemed like so long.

There is no hiding now, as the bright sun shines light on even our shadows, urging us to step into our most true and best self.

The message is: to break free from outdated structures, limiting concepts or ideals. Clear out the clutter of old lives no longer being lived and step into your own divine light. Leave behind our hard shells that we no longer need.

~ To let your own authentic self shine like the summer sun ~

Like the flowers we bloom now.

IMG_1618.JPG

However, with the sun, mars and mercury all in the sensitive realm of Mother Cancer, the shining sun & it’s dominant masculine energy urging us to action, may seem a little too bright right now. Maybe you are a little tender and raw outside the comfort of your shell. That’s natural.

We are soft flowers still, remember this.

Be gentle with yourself, give yourself hugs & sit by the water if you can.

The energy is potent for NURTURING GROWTH, so let yourself be tender, let yourself bloom in the warmth of the sun.

Backyard Medicine Pt. 1 – Oxymel

The warmth of Summer is here and the abundance of Spring and Summer blooms are all around us. Wildflowers and wild herbs rich in nourishment are growing, for many of us, right in our own backyard.

Whether you’re an herbalist or just wanting to benefit from these nutrients and minerals, the sheer abundance of wild edibles and herbs (especially during the warm season) can be overwhelming. 

Many people miss out on these gifts simply because they are unaware or don’t know where to begin as far as preparation goes.

Just for fun, I thought I would share some preparations that I have learned. The first one is Oxymel. Oxymel is an old recipe, derived from the Latin word oxymeli meaning acid + honey.

oxymel3

It’s beauty is in it’s simplicity. It can be made different ways, but what I use is Apple Cider Vinegar and Raw Organic Honey. This base of acid + honey then becomes your vessel that you infuse your chosen herbs, flowers and/or berries in. 

You can choose to make an Oxymel for medicinal or nutritive purposes (or both). The ratio of vinegar to honey is based on your own personal preference and what you would like the end result to be.

For example, you could be aiming to create more of a sipping vinegar filled with specific medicinal herbs for the purpose of clearing out a chest cold, boosting the immune system, stimulating lymphatic flow etc.. Or you could just want nutrient infused vinegar that you can then use in cooking preparations, like yummy immune boosting salad dressings!

Either way, the standard preparation is the same.

You will need:

~ A clean, sterilized Mason Jar

~ Organic Apple Cider Vinegar

~ Raw and/or organic honey

~ Fresh wildflowers, herbs or berries

Place desired plant material (In the pictured Oxymel, I used Viola Tricolors) into the mason jar (1/4 – 1/5 of the way full), cover with the apple cider vinegar and honey.
You can choose to use a lot of honey or a little.

You can stir before sealing the jar, or seal the jar and shake until well mixed. Then let the jar sit somewhere cool and dark and shake a couple of times a week. After two weeks, strain and pour into a glass jar for storage, your Oxymel is now ready to enjoy! You can taste at this time and adjust with more honey, or add olive oil and other ingredients to create a salad dressing.

*A Note on Herbs: If you are picking fresh herbs or wildflowers, always pick in clean pesticide-free location far away from road traffic. Always thank the plant. Never leave an area depleted. You can also use dried herbs for this recipe, but I would like to focus on using the beautiful wild herbs and flowers growing here in Newfoundland. You can look into the flowers and herbs in your local area, just stay safe, have respect and always give back to mama earth to replace what you take, in some form or another. 

Hope you enjoyed this post! Any questions please don’t hesitate to ask! Love to you all.

Lessons with the goddess Red Clover

Today’s lesson was found in the red clover patch, the flowers haven’t bloomed yet but I was so happy to find their leaves in full growth.
 
We always admire our blooming & the blooming of others without acknowledging all the growth it took to get there.
Be happy & content with yourself at all stages of growth, all are important and all have value.
