I am reminded that in Chinese Traditional Medicine, we are currently moving through the Season of Metal in which the energetics of the Lungs (grief) and Colon (waste/detoxification) predominate. A natural time to turn inward, process and move through the grief and other energies of the year that served us well but are no longer needed for the time of transformation ahead. Just as the garden soil requires the compost to be turned or tilled in preparation towards replanted, so it is as well with our energetic and physical bodies. As we release, much space is created and needed as this is a great time of manifesting the next planting of experience as we continually shift towards a more authentic expression of our natural and beautiful selves.
Dogbane: Dogbane helps us access the courage to follow our instincts, which is vital to growth and change. This is the essence to support self-confidence. The Practitioner's Encyclopedia of Flower Remedies by Clare G. Harvey "For the deep release of trapped traumatic energy from recesses of the unconscious. This essences get to those ‘hard to reach’ places to clear remnants of trauma. "
Nicker Nut:" Discernment about, protection of and support for our new creations. 'When something is being born, be it a project, a new idea, a new way to live or a new understanding of your life purpose, I AM adept at supporting you to know if it is something you want to continue on with. I illuminate the change process so that you can move forward or let go with much greater confidence. I demonstrate how to protect and manifest your endeavor if it is in alignment with your purpose.'"
Adventurine: "Strengthens the central vertical axis which stabilizes us during expansion experiences; helps us move into and through new experiences with grace, stamina and perseverance; good for spiritual trailblazers and pioneers."*
Carnelian: "Increases the etheric body's ability to access pranic energy; energizes and clears the nadirs (the energetic interface between the etheric body and the meridians), allowing a greater flow of energy to the meridians."* https://alaskanessences.com/collections/gem-elixirs/products/carnelian
Elderberry: A powerful & very tasty antiviral immune tonic, Elderberries are high in antioxidants and vitamin rich. Wonderful throughout the winter moons, but especially so during the extreme temperature fluctuations that accompany us and bring about the flu season during this moon.
American Skullcap: A nervine, relaxant, and constitutional tonic, Skullcap nourishes both mind and body. Relaxation is key to the release, recuperation, and revitalization called for during this moon.
Mullein: An anti-inflammatory & demulcent respiratory herb, Mullein gently tones and nourishes the mucous membranes of the entire respiratory tract.
Holy Basil: Also known as Tulsi, Holy Basil helps the body adapt and reduces stress response (physical & emotional), providing balance and allowing us to remain attuned to the healing energies around us.
