Hi there! I felt a lot of shifts in the very first week.
I was most surprised by the Grief Relief flourish formula. I was taking one spritz in my mouth before bed every other night. Whoa. Those nights were VERY intense, dream-wise. (I usually dream anyway and often have quite vivid, intense dreams. These were several notches more intense.) Each morning after, I felt a deep, damp heaviness in my chest. I meditate and do conscious breathing before getting out of bed each morning, then I shower, dress, and walk my DD to school. Once home, I eat breakfast and start my day. I was taking one spritz of Grounding Green and one spritz of Magenta Self-Healer in my mouth before my shower on those mornings. By breakfast, I was feeling back in my body. I felt great after my second spritz of Magenta Self-Healer mid-day. On those nights, I was taking one spritz of Flora-Sleep and I would sleep deeper and calmer. It was a nice rhythm.
I'm using the past tense because life has gotten a little crazy around here and I have forgotten to take the flourish formulas for 3-4 days now. I was just thinking about them this morning and I may have taken one spritz of something, but it is already a blur.
Anyway, I could feel the deep, damp heaviness easing a tiny bit every other day. I am still enthralled and fascinated! I didn't even realize grief was an issue for me. I'm still not sure what correlates to it. I was just getting into the depths of it when other things became a top priority (short-term volunteer job that has become very demanding of my time) and I let it take over completely. Learning to balance all my interests is one of the things I am working on, so this is a good reminder.
The YES and Magenta Self-Healer feel so incredibly lovely. Even just holding them makes me feel good. (I usually have one or the other with me.) I live less than a dozen miles from the beach and I adore the beach!!! Walking barefoot in the sand right at the surf's edge is probably my favorite activity ever. I wish I could do it every day. The YES gives me a similar feeling as the beach experience. It could be the similar smells (both have salty water), but it feels deeper than that. The self-healer feels different than YES...really, really GOOD, also.
The other surprise flourish formula is Grace. I don't particularly care for lilies. They are just okay to look at and I don't like their strong scent. The Grace flourish formula is pretty much a bunch of different lilies, so I was very pleasantly surprised with my first spritz. It tastes good and it makes me smile. The mornings I was starting my day with this I had an extra bounce in my step.
I found the extremes of the effects of these FE formulas a bit draining. Every other morning I was barely in my body (effects of Grief Relief) and the following morning I had an extra bounce in my step. Both took a lot of energy out of me first thing in the morning. Then, the YES and MSH created a lovely calm for most of the day. There is probably a lesson in here somewhere. I haven't figured it out, yet...
