An Ask on Facebook’s Blue Aventurine Page

Keeping up with my shaman practices, I wanted to do a journey today and figured I would ask the people on Facebook if they had a question I could seek an answer to. Nothing personal but a broad ask that everyone could benefit from. Two separate journey’s were done with the responses I received. The messages were important enough to share here too.

The first question was combined from two people, revolved around the state of the earth. More specific, Mother Earth’s rumblings of late. What should the light-workers be doing to better serve the earth? How to go about patching up the great divide and or confusion over how we (human race) can best serve our communities and the earth?

I did a half hour upper and lower world journey to bring back a message. To be honest, I have a hard time tapping into the earth. Not because of the lack of love, compassion, and yearning to do right by her but more so the pain and turmoil endured by mother nature is felt deeply in my core. My connection to the earth is strong and respectful. The answers to the questions were not surprising to me and I’m betcha you already know in your core what the replies will be.

Beginning in the lower world, I met up with my power animal. We went to a place green and lush to rest near a small clear body of water. This was a reflecting pool where we thought about our lives and the impact on others, including nature. In my opinion, focusing on our actions (what we do) will bring help easily to and for the earth. This can be obtained with little effort on our part if we always come from a place of love. Reflection is important within and without to move forward smartly, for everyone and everything concerned.

Animals are very much so being effected and affected regarding the health of nature. Turning to our pets or witnessing activity of outdoor wildlife holds messages from the earth. Take time to sit, watch and listen to surroundings.

Moving from the lower world to the upper with my power animal, several minutes passed to show me a better definition of  balance. This state of flux is always in play. For every good there is a bad. This is necessary and natural to occur in nature. The balance needs to be continual, perpetual. Nature has always lived this way and will keep on shifting to benefit earth’s well being. We cannot and will never fool mother nature, she is way to smart and should not be toyed with.

The second shaman journey from a Facebook suggestion was to ask, how can we end the disparity between the haves and the have-nots in our world? How can we reframe our value system? Example, sports and entertainment celebrities are not exorbitantly over valued verses teachers, social or other public workers?

This time I went straight to the upper world for an answer from my spirit guide. My hand was quickly held and lead over to a table to play chess. This symbolism was to demonstrate how calculating and involved the topic of money can be to the masses. The next vision shown was a controlling dam holding back water. Steadily the water breached the dam and the current found a different route to get to where it wanted to go despite the obstacle. There is power in money, force and pressure too. It  is best to let money go where it needs to go. The path of least resistance is always best!

When I asked again about money, a blackboard appeared in grammar school fashion. Education is the way to level out the financial playing field. Not only for the up and coming adults but for us adults right now. Use what you can to educate yourself and others. Allow money discrepancies to be brought out into the open, thus helping to bring a balance for fairness and justice for all to enjoy a comfortable lifestyle.

The journeys are always filled with symbolism. Perhaps a word or two will strike a cord with you and create a different interpretation than how I understood the visions. Happy to continue the conversation in comments always!

Day Three of Aromatherapy Auditing

Sevilla has orange trees everywhere.

Earth Day was the ending date of the level one aromatherapy class I audited over the weekend. The hour long meditation we participated in that morning had a very strong mother earth involvement, unlike any I have felt before. It is always an honor to respect, send love and gratitude to the being (she is very much alive scientifically and metaphysically) who struggles every moment to take care of all of us, regardless of any belief system humans have. Mother earth does a fantastic job, my wish is for everyone to become more respectful towards nature and one another. If anything, taking an aromatherapy class makes a tree hugger out of you for sure!

The Secret Life of Plants
The Secret Life of Plants                 Christopher Bird

4-22-12 A brief break down of the secret life of plants… Body language is a representation of how we feel inside. The unspoken messages we are communication with one another has a lot to do with how we truly feel about that particular subject or topic being discussed. Let’s look at how a plant (bush, tree) talks to us. What conversation are they having with us after all of our years not fully listening to them? If a particular part of the plant was harvested for distilling to make an essence, what could we expect it to assist us with? An orange tree needs specific things to grow up big and strong, we basically need the same things for a healthy life. Though the leaves, oxygen and nutrition is taken in. If that part of the tree was made into an essence chances are it will help improve our body’s respiratory system along with emotionally problems preventing us to fully inhale life. The inner wood of the tree would assist heart issues because it is the center structure of the tree. The bark would represent our skin (as it is the tree’s). An orange, the fruit of the tree, has vitamins, nourishment for our bodies. The rind, peel is protection for the fruit and the essence will help with the body’s immune system while energetically assisting us with personal defense. Seeds represent a new beginning or is reflective of how to deal with a core problem. Now take a look at how the plant (bush, tree) holds itself. Aromatherapy helps to bring more awareness to becoming more flexible, grounding yourself, reaching up high. The flower’s colors indicate symbolism and additional benefits too, don’t overlook that detail. The characteristics of the flower, how it presents itself is another association important to healing physical and mental issues. This is a quick interpretation of conversations available when we choose to listen to the plant kingdom. A brief overview of the myriad of possibilities aromatherapy can help one defeat to regain a healthier, natural life.

After many hours of learning, sampling, sharing, smelling, applying, talking and holding consultation with other students, it was our turn to go ahead and pick an essence for ourselves. There are over 200 bottles to choose from. Someone had chosen the one I was planning t0 take back with me and mediate on, so I had to use my intuition and approach the task the way I should of. Closing my eyes, I took a deep breath in, held it for a few seconds exhaled and opened up my eyes and reached out without over annualizing the situation.

The key message from the weekend’s adventure is to listen. Be still and listen. Observe and interpret. Abolish, diminish, expel fear and embrace love. There is no need to second guess, trust and you will always do the right thing. Support is abundant, just ask because it can come to you from many angles.
