Boundaries Aura Spray

img_1012I recently created a special blend for the students in the last workshop I ran, on Boundaries, and I promised them I’d write something for them about the ingredients, so here it is!

Blessings!

Boundaries Blue

boundaries-blueBoundaries Blue is the colour I find in people’s auras when their boundaries are strong and healthy. This colour provides a smooth edge to the aura that doesn’t allow things, people or situations in the world around us to ‘hook in’ to our aura.

Using the Boundaries Blue aura colour essence helps us to keep our personal space clear and effectively assert (communicate) our boundaries to others so they know where they stand with us.

This colour gives us a ‘water off a ducks back’ approach to what might normally ruffle our feathers!


Fringed Violetcapture2

I can’t work out where my fringed violet photos are, so I’m showing you some images from a fantastic local resource I often use to help me identify flowers. Please click here to access.

If you brush up against a fringed violet accidentally and then look away for a few second, when you bring your attention back to the flower you may be hard-pressed to find it again. A disturbed fringe violet, with its sensitive fringe feeling into the world around it, will close itself up quite quickly, and pretend to be one of the surrounding grasses. This remedy is excellent for helping your boundaries learn discernment and flexibility, so we know when (and how much) to be open or closed, in each unique situation. I do think there is an element of tie-cutting this flower provides as well: while three petals are fringed, the other three are compact and long, like the swords we might use to cut the ties that bind us.


Desert Rose

2012-06-07 13.42.42.jpgDesert Rose is a centralian flower essence. She says:

I’m a lot tougher than I look, and I can protect you from the demands that other place on you and the demands you place on yourself. Let go of these silly ideas that you are only here to serve others. Reconnect with yourself. Think of yourself as a sacred site and declare your territory sacrosanct. Have self respect and self love. Care for yourself. Care for your body.


Phaleria

phalaria image_0001Phaleria is an amazing Arnhem land flower. I’ve adding this to the blend because having healthy boundaries is also about knowing when to shed your old skin because you’ve outgrown it. Comfort zones can lead to stagnation after all!

Phaleria reminds us we have choices, and we aren’t trapped. It also helps us emerge from our comfort zones. Like a caterpillar coming out of a cocoon, we often discover we have hidden wings that give us freedom when we overcome old limiting thoughts, beliefs and identities.


Black Kyanite

kyaniteBlack Kyanite is protective for the aura and helps to repair rips, holes and tears in the fabric of our aura boundaries. It also helps us to be assertive and to speak our truth. Within the aura itself, it reconnects areas that may have become disconnected by unhealthy defensive responses that armour and harden the aura and it helps dissolve hard walls inside our hearts that occur when we stop listening to our inner voice and our feelings. Black kyanite erects protective shields over the ear chakras that filter out negative energy and dampen the effects of auditory over-stimulation.


Kunzite

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAKunzite is a protective crystal. It provides protection by raising our frequency, dispelling negativity and shielding our aura from unwanted energies. It reminds us to align ourselves with what nourishes us, and to let go of the rest.

 

 

Aura Remedy – Releasing grief

IMG_5120Sometimes when we are sad, we express it in strange ways! We might get angry, for example. We might have a tantrum, shut people out, run away, or give up. We might not even really be aware of the grief…. we just feel “off” and we’re acting out, but we don’t know why. Releasing the grief behind this behaviour makes the behaviour go away.

Today I made a special Aura Remedy blend for helping people (and their children and/or inner child) through these troubling moments in life. This blend uses Apache tear to release the underlying grief, especially when this grief has to do with feeling helpless or powerless, unloved or misunderstood, rejected or abandoned.  Continue reading “Aura Remedy – Releasing grief”

Honey Grevillea

IMG_2475 (The following is from my book ‘Wildflower Spirit Journey through Central Australia’):

The next community that enchanted me was Warumpi (Papunya), where I was excited to see street signs that bore the names of some of my favourite artists, such as Tim Leura, who I knew as a child. When my great uncle Peter was working as a teacher in Warumpi, fellow art teacher Geoff Barden, with the help of an amazing man named Kaapa, was helping the local Aboriginal men transfer their traditional sand paintings on to board and canvas. This was the beginning of the Western Desert Aboriginal art movement.

Central Australian ‘Heart Fuchsia’

I found this flower in Central Australia.

Heart Fuchsia heals the wounds of the heart. She helps you travel through your history so you can understand who you are and why your heart has become who it is. The healing she gave me was a soul-retrieval. When wounded, a part of us can split off from our wholeness and become trapped in the memory of the wound, and we let it go, abandon it almost, in an attempt to wall off the pain. To heal the wound, we need to reintegrate the memory and be present with our pain, with compassion, gentleness, acceptance and love.

Desert Heath Myrtle on the Sandy Blight Rd

Desert Myrtle MedicineImage

Desert Health Myrtle made my neck feel longer, almost as though it were helping me stretch out the kinks and compressions in my spine. Then I found myself rotating my head around in each direction, slowly, as though scanning the environment around me. It reminded me of what our blind owl Zing does- it’s almost as though she can turn her head all the way around and ‘look’ over her own shoulder at you. Really, she’s listening to the entire room to get a sense for what is where and who is doing what.

Daisy Bush at Areyonga

DAISY BUSH MEDICINE (essence)

Areyonga was a power place for me; the mountains reached out and connected with me, spoke with me. I haven’t seen a more beautiful place and it was delicious to be nestled so closely between two mountains. The echo was incredible. What I thought were two dogs barking at each other turned out to be one dog barking at himself.

I found two special flowers here, both within metres of one another, a fuchsia and a daisy. This was the first daisy I’d found on the trip and I’d really been looking forwards to connecting with daisy, so it was a magical moment for me. I’d headed in off the road, letting spirit guide my steps, drawn towards some mistletoe. As I stepped up to the tree I realised it wasn’t in flower, but when I looked down, right in front of me was this magnificent daisy bush.

Daisy spoke to me mostly in images and feelings, with the odd word thrown in.  I had to work with this medicine three times before I really grasped its purpose.
