I ♥ gem essences

Gem & Crystal Essences, or vibrational essences. Interest in the use of vibrational essences is currently growing enormously as more and more people reach a level of awareness that leads them to look for natural ways to create greater unity and wholeness in their lives.

Each essence contains the life force or energy imprint of a particular gem, crystal or mineral. These beautiful energies provide a positive balancing force, which in a natural gentle way help to release the energetic patterning of old thoughts, attitudes and emotional issues that no longer serve us. This simple system of re-patterning effects change at a causal level offering us the powerful opportunity to bring harmony and balance to emotions, mind, & spirit

How can Essences Help Us
Using vibrational essences will help us to gently feel and release the old layers of buried emotions and thought patterns that unconsciously create who we are and how we react to situations and people in our lives.

Gem essences follow a very ancient tradition. Ancient cultures used gems and sound vibration to direct the subtle forces of nature. Gems came to be used in astrology as well, to counteract the negative influence of the planets. In ancient eastern medicine, gemstones and gem elixirs played an important role in the healing process.

Crystals and gems were highly respected for their remarkable, even magical powers and vibrational healing properties. Scientific evidence that acknowledges the special vibrational frequencies of gems is only coming to light as science develops the knowledge and tools to analyze the structure and properties of gems, and quantum physics gives us some of the answers as to why gems, crystals and minerals are able to do what they do. Somehow they understood the vibrational power of gems and their potential influence on the subtle energies of the human being that science is only just beginning to explain today.

Dating back as far as 3000 BC, a number of Vedic texts mention the use of gems, both in terms of astrology and healing. Gems were used whole, placed or worn on the body, or crushed and ingested as a powder or drunk as an elixir.

Gem essences capture the vibrational frequencies of gems and are encoded with wisdom achieved at a planetary level. This wisdom is transferred from the gem to the essences in the process of making the essence. A gem is placed in a bowl of water and then in the sun for several hours, where the vibrational pattern of the gem is transferred to the water. The gem is then removed from the water and alcohol/brandy is added to preserve the memory of the vibrational frequency of the gem. This creates the ‘mother tincture’. The essence is then diluted to create a ‘stock essence’. A further dilution takes place to create a ‘dosage essence’.

As Masaru Emoto has shown in his work with water (www.hado.net), intent, words, thought and music all have an impact upon the structure of water.

I ♥  FRENCH PASTRIES

Do you? Not big fat pastries, like canolis or Danish. I mean petit fours. The pretty, dainty pastries that are usually from France. This includes macarons.

I’m partial to éclairs and Napoleans. Canelé and Jesuite

Buttercream. Pink Fondant. Flaky bits of millefeuille. Raspberries.

Mmm.

How I love thee.

Not that I eat a lot of pastries in my city, but here’s what I do like:

I HEART FOREIGN FILMS

Do you? I have to admit they can be infuriating because often they end open-ended, unlike Hollywood movies. They can be slow and monotonous almost. I get it, I get it. Sometimes they can be a bore. But sometimes they can be surprisingly good. You can even hone your foreign language skills, and get your wanderlust on because they cinematography makes you want to go to whatever country you’re watching.

Here are some of the ones I have really liked (not in any order):

POLISSE

SCENT OF THE GREEN PAPAYA

AMELIE

I AM LOVE

THE GREAT BEAUTY

LADY VENGEANCE

OLDBOY

A ROYAL AFFAIR

HAUTE CUISINE

GIRL WITH THE DRAGON TATTOO

RUST AND BONE

LIKE FATHER LIKE SON

CROUCHING TIGER, HIDDEN DRAGON

INFERNAL AFFAIRS

IN THE MOOD FOR LOVE

BATTLE ROYALE

IMPOSSIBLES

I ♥ JADE PLANTS

I was craving green plants in my abode. You know, feng shui good energy and all that? Well, I ended up – dare say – killing them all. My greenthumb is non-existent so it seems. You see, I’m more of a fresh flower kinda gal, and simply adore bouquets of seasonal flowers – peonies and tulips in the spring; roses, irises, dahlias in the summer; and sunflowers and gerber daisies in the fall.

But, alas, my home needed a boost of nature energy so off I went to get some easy-to-care-for plants. The choice? Succulents, in particular the jade plant. They are less difficult to….well…less difficult to kill. Wish me luck! 

THE JADE PLANT

The jade plant is a succulent with smooth, rounded flat leaves, with some varieties flowering small pink or white blossoms. As the name suggests, the leaves are a rich green with tinges of red on the ends when exposed to constant sunlight. It’s also known as the Money Plant, Friendship Tree or Lucky Plant.

JADE PLANT & FENG SHUI

In Feng Shui, the jade plant is considered a good luck charm that activates wealth energy to attract the flow of money. Its green colour symbolizes growth and renewal. It’s considered to have a vibrant, rooted energy that produces fresh oxygen and positive expanding energy into a space – creating a lovely breeding ground for prosperity. Not only that, the smooth rounded leaves are said to resemble jade coins.

To know where to place your jade plant to activate good juju from Feng Shui, use the bagua map to help you.

* For family harmony, financial luck, good health, the success of projects and scholarly studies, place the jade plant in the SOUTHEAST are of your home. Here, the jade plant will bring balance, prosperity and success. And, with each new leaf, your fortunes are said to increase.

*For creativity or children luck, place the jade plant in the WEST corner.

*For business success and personal financial success, place in the SOUTHWEST area.

*For activating the help of mentors, teachers and other people, place in the NORTHWEST.
