Florals for Beauty, Self Love, and Radiance
| New York Institute of Aromatic Studies


Through the open door
A drowsy smell of flowers – gray heliotrope
And white sweet clover, and shy mignonette
Comes faintly in, and silent chorus leads
To the pervading symphony of Peace.

– Whittier

To me, there is nothing quite like a flower. Their beauty opens the heart, delights the senses, and heals the soul. Flowers reign supreme. Here are some of my favorite floral aromatics.


Rose (Rosa damascena)
The Queen of Flowers. Rose is available as an essential oil, an absolute, and a hydrosol (an aromatic water). Rose hydrosol is an affordable way to experience the preciousness of rose. Misting your face and neck with the healing aroma of rose is the perfect way to begin and end each day. It will beautify your skin with its soothing, humectant properties, while also nourishing your heart with its divine beauty. Rose is a gentle tonic to the heart and promotes tenderness, self love, and self acceptance.


Geranium (Pelargonium graveolens)
I think of gentle geranium as “The Great Balancer.” It’s a highly versatile oil that you can call on during times of emotional distress such as mood swings, anxiety, irritability, and self doubt. I love to add one drop each of geranium and lavender onto my pillow at night when I’m needing harmony and comfort.

Lavender (Lavandula angustifolia) Lavender is a classic for a reason. It works on a wide variety of issues including soothing stress and skin, while also promoting restful sleep. I especially love using lavender in the summer because it cools both the mind and body in an incredibly gentle way.


Neroli (Citrus aurantium var amara)
A precious and beloved aroma also known as bitter orange flower. Neroli eases obsessive thoughts and promotes a lightness of being. Try 1-2 drops of neroli essential oil swirled into a cup of epsom salts. At the end of an overwhelming day, an aromatic bath with neroli will lift heaviness and help worries drift away.


Ylang Ylang (Cananga odorata)
A little goes a long way! Ylang ylang has a super sweet, heady, intoxicating aroma. The essential oil is fractionated, based on distillation time, resulting in five grades that are commercially available. It’s a deeply relaxing, harmonizing oil that is considered to be one of the best aphrodisiacs. It’s a delight to diffuse and works beautifully in skincare, especially for balancing oily skin and hair.


Jasmine (Jasminum grandiflorum and Jasminum sambac)
Jasmine has a lavish aroma that evokes euphoria and divine sensuality. It releases inhibitions and promotes playfulness and ease. Jasminum grandiflorum blooms during the day while Jasminum sambac blooms at night. Jasmine is technically an absolute, not an essential oil. Jasmine is a team player and works well with many aromatics. It’s an opulent addition to body and massage oils. Jasmine wakes you up to a higher self and keeps you there.

Floral aromatics are a true and precious gift from the plant world. They represent love, beauty, manifestation, thoughtfulness, and nurturance. It has been said that “every flower is a soul blossoming in nature.” I hope you’ll be inspired to experience flowers in a deeper way. See what your heart says. Bask in their gentle beauty . . .

Lee Harris: ENERGY UPDATE -The DNA Healing of the Highly Sensitive Inner Child

 


ENERGY UPDATE – The DNA Healing of the Highly Sensitive Inner Child | LEE HARRIS ENERGY

  • This is a time of HIGH SENSITIVITY on the planet. Sensitivity and emotions are heightened within all of us. Be aware of this and tread lightly wherever and whenever needed, in order to maintain balance. (It is a fast and furious time on Earth when it comes to multiple information streams, sensory influences and multiple dimensions of existence playing out all at once.)
  • Ask Yourself Regularly: Am I overstressed or overstimulated? Do I need to step back, change my pace, find a moment of silence?
  • COMPLICATIONS TO PLANS and unexpected developments were a theme for many in April. This energy will continue through the first half of May. How do these changes affect you? Do they capsize you emotionally or cause anxiety?
  • CONTROL AND THE LOSS OF IT (when outer circumstances surprise or challenge you) can cause an energy reaction of shock/fear/grief. Once these emotions have moved through, you can return to an energy direction of acceptance and presence to the new situation.
  • COMMUNICATION WILL BE MORE AWRY. Passionate and fiery communication will be coming out of the mouths of many, but not always in a cohesive or graceful way. If this feels like you, you may want to write your feelings down before sharing them, as a way to see clearly what is truly for others to hear or what you just needed to feel yourself see and express.
  • It is a time of DEEP DNA LEVEL HEALING for the collective. A major re-patterning is taking place, which can feel as uncomfortable as the magical moments can feel wonderful.
  • There is a DESCENSION PROCESS taking place for Lightworkers right now – getting in touch with (and releasing) old human trauma, both yours and the collective energy of it. It is all a part of the current ‘Rise of the Lightworkers’ energy (spoken about in my earlier message HERE).
  • As we are EVOLVING VERY FAST, we will also rise to the surface the old wounds, limits, and past stories for healing and clearing. This is how healing and true evolution can occur. This means you will notice new layers of emotion, ego, and internal reactions. These rise in you so they can be felt and released. Know you are not alone in going through this process.
  • Accompanying this are CORE CHILDHOOD WOUNDS AND ISSUES, now rising to the surface in waking life (and for some in the dream state). Can you lovingly parent yourself when your inner-child is expressing its hurts, limits or fears? Can you let yourself off the hook, and let go of any ideas of “I am not where I am supposed to be!”
  • Try to surrender control of the mind WHEN DIFFICULT FEELINGS ARISE. Allow yourself to not feel ok when you don’t feel good. These muddier feelings want to come through you, so their stories are seen and heard one last time before the energy can be returned to you, free of the old story and ready for new journeys. Allow yourself the time you need to not be as functional, or as clear as you would like to be. Therein will lie the transformation at the DNA level. And you will return to clearer and brighter energy once the process is complete.

The Power of Love

Power of Love

I have been part of small group who have chosen to do 28 Days of Love Alchemy with a friend and teacher Kalee Coombs on a Facebook event.

The intention is really simple and fun…
“For 28 days we will love ourselves and BE love to change our your world. By loving ourselves and ‘being’ the love we ripple it out into our world.”

Here is a wonderful video she created especially for this event…

Honoring Your Feelings – Kalee Coombs – Love Alchemy

Everyday brings up it’s usual distractions and frustrations which really disturb our sense of loving. So I use them as a opportunity to bring myself back to a loving center. Seeing that Love is an extension of who we are rather than an object of attraction.

I can only suggest to find that center of love within you and encourage it to grow and spread outward without fear of rejection. It is very challenging I can assure you but well worth the effort.

Many Blessings to each of you as we move into the Full Moon and Lunar Eclipse

Riverman

DAILY OM ~ March 18, 2016 Finding Time for You: Your Most Vital Commitment


DAILY OM ~ March 18, 2016
Finding Time for You: Your Most Vital Commitment

by Madisyn Taylor

We can excel easier in our lives when our own spiritual, physical, and intellectual needs are fulfilled.

Within each of there is a well of energy that must be regularly replenished. When we act as if this well is bottomless, scheduling a long list of activities that fit like puzzle pieces into every minute of every day, it becomes depleted and we feel exhausted, disconnected, and weak. Refilling this well is a matter of finding time to focus on, nurture, and care for ourselves, or “you time.” Most of us are, at different times throughout the day, a spouse, a friend, a relative, an employee, a parent, or a volunteer, which means that down time, however relaxing in nature, is not necessarily “you time.” Though some people will inevitably look upon “you time” as being selfish, it is actually the polar opposite of selfishness. We can only excel where our outer world affairs are concerned when our own spiritual, physical, and intellectual needs are fulfilled.

Recognizing the importance of “you time” is far easier than finding a place for it in an active, multifaceted lifestyle, however. Even if you find a spot for it in your agenda, you may be dismayed to discover that your thoughts continuously stray into worldly territory. To make the most of “you time,” give yourself enough time on either side of the block of time you plan to spend on yourself to ensure that you do not feel rushed. Consider how you would like to pass the time, forgetting for the moment your obligations and embracing the notion of renewal. You may discover that you are energized by creative pursuits, guided meditation, relaxing activities during which your mind can wander, or modes of expression such as writing.

Even if you have achieved a functioning work-life balance, you may still be neglecting the most important part of that equation: you. “You time” prepares you for the next round of daily life, whether you are poised to immerse yourself in a professional project or chores around the home. It also affords you a unique opportunity to learn about yourself, your needs, and your tolerances in a concrete way. As unimportant as “you time” can sometimes seem, it truly is crucial to your wellbeing because it ensures that you are never left without the energy to give of yourself.
