|Gracefully traversing these “Interesting Times” that we are living in.
You have probably heard a lot of talk about the “End of the Mayan Calender” that is going to occur in 2012, some of it fear based and much of it conflicting. Some people say that it will be an Armageddon style end-of-the-world, others say it will usher in the so called “thousand years of peace”.
The truth lies somewhere in between, and I want to dedicate this newsletter to this topic because it has a lot to do with the confusion and turmoil that many people and countries are experiencing right now. I want to shed some light on the bigger picture and some ways to move through this time as gracefully as possible.
The Mayans were an ancient civilisation living in Peru, and the ruins of one of their main cities, Machu Pichu, remain today, attracting many thousands of visitors per year on spiritual pilgrimages. They had a very sophisticated calender that was accurate not just on a yearly basis, but also within a larger 26 000 year astronomical cycle, that is commonly referred to by astronomers as the Precession of the Equinoxes. We will complete one of these 26 000 year cycles in December 2012 and then move into a new one.
According to scientist Gregg Braden, some of the temples at Machu Pichu record four such previous cycles that humanity has passed safely through. Many indigenous cultures from across the world speak of various “Ages”, with most indicating that we are currently at the end of the “4th Age” and about to enter the 5th Age. Their Elders are in agreement that we are in this transition at the moment. During each Age, the human race collectively learns certain spiritual lessons.
The next cycle, the so called Age of Aquarius, is all about becoming more heart centred (loving), community orientated (helping each other instead of competing), and sustainable (living in harmony with nature).
It would be impossible not to have noticed the increasing number of natural disasters over the last few years, with this year recording the highest number of major events, all in quick succession, across a wide geographical area.
There have been severe floods, cyclones, earthquakes, volcanoes, heavy snowfall and bush fires, all causing heavy loss of property and life. If you live in the Middle East, there is much political unrest as the people begin to rise up against their leaders. If it is not one of these events tearing your life apart, there is the aftermath of the GFC still working its way through the economy. If you have managed to dodge all that, something has probably sparked a family, health or relationship crisis and your personal life is under pressure. Its hard to find anyone who says life has been cruisy and wonderful during the last year or two.
That’s the bad bit. Now for the good news.
None of this is unexpected and help is available. Not only that, you’ve probably also noticed that the very best of human nature has emerged during these very worst of events. Total strangers have held out the hand of selfless kindness to those in need, sometimes risking their own lives in doing so. Whole countries have rallied behind each other and those from other lands, offering whatever help and support they could.
But why is it all happening? And why now?
According to Ian White, founder of Australian Bush Flower Essences, “We have changes occurring in the magnetic poles and old dormant energies being released. The planet is cleansing and purifying. The floods in Qld, Victoria and Pakistan, the earthquakes in Christchurch and Chile, the volanoes in Iceland and Hawaii are part of this. There is tremendous physical and spiritual change going on. The Light Frequency Essences help to balance that. People need to be shifting their own vibration to a more loving vibration and if they don’t they are going to be challenged. We are getting to the real core of what’s happening around us and within us, and the Light Frequency Essences are very specific for this point in time. They are the strongest Essences I’ve been involved with”. Excerpt from Holistic Bliss Magazine. April 2011 edition.
So what are the Light Frequency Essences? They are seven Essences made up in pristine and sacred sites around the world, and they each have a specific role to play in helping you to adjust to the changes our planet is going through right now – physically, emotionally and spiritually.
Antarctic Essence was the first Essence of the range and personally, I could live on this one.
It is great to help you to “chill out” – to find inner stillness, peace and tranquility’ to become aware of what is really necessary in your life and the situations you encounter. If you tend to get distracted, it will help bring about a sense of harmony.
Made from 20 000 year old ice, this Essence also helps you to dissolve old patterns and belief systems, and to access your own ancient wisdom and wisdom from ancient times in general. It allows you to trust Spirit, and your path and shows you the next steps to take on your journey, especially when dealing with major change.
Arctic Essence was the next Essence made, in 2006, and the predominant message was “Spirit of Freedom”. Ian found the area where he made this Essence energetically very pure and abounding with Nature Spirits, all of which combined to create a feeling of enormous playfulness and joy within him.
The ice at the North Pole is melting very rapidly, too quickly for planetary harmony to be maintained. I see this reflected as many humans having their own personal “meltdown” on an emotional level. In fact some people find that taking the Arctic Essence triggers this sort of catharsis. Rest assured it is part of the process of you coming back into balance and you will regain your equilibrium to be in a better place than you were before.
As part of the ice melting, the Earth will shift slightly on its axis, and subsequently the magnetic poles will shift. This is already happening, as any mariner or plane pilot will tell you, with the adjustments between magnetic and true north on their navigational charts needing to be updated at ever more frequent intervals (previously this was rare).
We are connected to the earth’s magnetic field and changes in it affect us (and all other living creatures). The Arctic Essence allows us to align with the new magnetic poles and the new magnetic field and to cope as these changes are happening.
Amazon Essence followed in September 2008. To quote Ian directly on the healing qualities of this Essence: “One of the main aspects of the Amazon Essence is its ability to help you be aware of, tune into, understand, and prepare for the immensity and the totality of the massive changes that are happening in nature. This Essence is like a road map to help you understand the new changing landscape. Currently vast energy is being released, especially in the Amazon, as part of the awakening of Gaia. This is creating an upsurge of energy across the whole planet, a movement of trying to re-connect with spirit”
The Amazon Essence also activates the built-in will to appreciate and protect all life. It activates the divine feminine within us by bringing in the stillness and calmness; the energy of harmlessness, to live in community for the benefit of all. This Essence can be particularly effective to help people to work constructively and creatively to bring about environmental balance and harmony. It encourages people to be aware, to work together as a community, to respect others, one’s community and the planet.”
It is highly recommended that you take the Amazon essence before the China Essence.
China Essence was made in November 2008 within the grounds of Lingyin Buddhist Temple (Temple of the Soul’s Retreat) at Hangzhou, an ancient Chinese capital city.
Many people are now feeling that they can’t keep up with how rapidly things are changing with the environment, the economy and within their own lives and selves. They are feeling pressured almost to breaking point.
One of the main qualities of the China Essence is to connect back to the feminine spirituality of the Earth. It is another Essence to help you attain peace and calm on all levels of your being, a state where you do not attach to what appears to be. You are in your own rhythm and aligned to a deeper rhythm, the divine feminine, where you to see the true significance of what is occurring, not the appearance.
This Essence also addresses the massive destruction, degradation and pollution that is occurring in China, both of the environment and the culture, the loss of connection with Spirit and the disconnection from the land. Wherever you live, taking China Essence gives you a sense of wanting to draw back from rampant development and consumerism and to instead connect with things of quality, true culture and the Earth.
You may also find a lot of sadness coming up to be released while you are on this Essence – both your own, of the communal feminine energy, and of Mother Earth.
Better out than in…
Lake Baikal Essence was the fifth Essence made, in mid 2009, in Russia. As the magnetic fields of the Earth shift, you may feel disorientated, as if your physical body is misaligned with your energetic bodies, and you can also have very frayed nerve endings leading you to feel quite jittery and stressed.
Meditating, and being at peace within, allow you to breathe through any major changes or shocks that come during these Earth changes. It is very important to start to really nurture yourself spiritually and open your heart centre. The Lake Baikal Essence helps you to do this too.
It also allows for an accelerated opening to, and understanding of, all the new energies around us. These energies are about equality, unity, balancing one’s masculinity and femininity, global oneness and harmony. This Essence is a key remedy for opening into this new potential within yourself and within your world.
Madagascar Essence was made in November 2009 and embodies the aspects of harmony, tolerance and peaceful co-operation. It helps you to be gentle and harmonious in your interactions with others, animals and the land.
The most important healing quality of the Madagascar Essence is that it allows you to detach from and resist the energy of the mass consciousness and its predilections for disease.
This Essence can also remove limiting beliefs around your health and wellbeing, for example that as you get older your mind and body will deteriorate.
As with The Antarctic Essence, I felt incredibly calm on this Essence, during a time that was anything but calm in regards to the circumstances at play in my life. So much so, that I nicknamed it “Zen in a bottle” I was also very tuned in with exactly what I needed to do to nurture my health.
Mt Pinatubo was the 7th and final Essence of the range, made in the Phillipines in 2010 – on the rim of the pyroclastic volcano that exploded in 1991.
This Essence gives you the confidence to stand alone without a mask and to be who you truly are. To express the unique aspect of yourself that you were born to be, freeing you from the need to conform. It allows you to reveal your true “I Am” state and what you are here to share, what your contribution to the world is. It also allows you to be grounded and in the centre of your power within yourself.
Mt. Pinatubo Essence also allows you to tune into the Earth’s inner pulsing as well as future events, so as to know where you should be and what is safe. This is especially important at the moment, with all the earth changes that are going on.
If you feel like you are stuck in concrete, this Essence helps to free you up. To be fluid enough to make the changes necessary to align with the new energies.
For me, I have to admit that on the first day of taking this Essence, synchronicity saw me have a conversation that at the time felt like I’d had a sledge hammer taken to me… Surrounding concrete smashed to pieces (metaphorically). Mask fell off with a crash. Somewhat of a shock to the system I have to say. Not trying to put you off or anything, just sharing.
However the rest of the 4 weeks I was on Mt Pinatubo were very gentle, a slow thawing, followed by an epiphany one morning of exactly what I needed to do, and where I needed to be, and I haven’t looked back since. A wonderful feeling.
