Good day Lovelies!
Having some fun shifts and experiences-lets see what I can get out during this unpredictable slice of quiet time "nap time!"
First off I was wondering if you ladies currently playing have been reciting affirmations to go along with your essences everytime? I have and was wondering if anyone thought it would be fun to share? too personal? I understand if thats the case...I'm an open book so heres a couple of mine...won't bombard you. A couple were inspired my James Green's Herbal Medicine Makers Handbook-he has a chapter on essences and making them-which I can't wait to do this spring/summer!
I have a couple affirmations for each written down on a post-it that I choose after I have done an intuitive selection of my essences for that time of day. I choose by putting my hand over the top of all of them and grabbing whichever essence my hand is pulled/vibrates to.
Today I chose in order-
walnut, wild oat, iris, sticky monkeyflower, and star tulip
then I got out my affirmations and in order, the post-its were- walnut, wild oat, iris, sticky monkeyflower, and star tulip...too weird! I took that as confirmation that I was supposed to take those today.
so here are some exs. of my affirmations
wild oat- the one I do the most- "My heart is open to joy, freedom, growth, and love" or "I do what I want to do and let nothing interfere with my purpose"
iris- "I am a luminous and creative spiritual being" or "I am soulfully and radiantly creative, and in touch with higher realms"
I recite these a few times while taking the essence the take a deep breath and wallow in the essence awhile. I feel that this ritual is quite rejuvenating and find myself an energy notch higher after doing that. Yesterday I did not do this in the morning-and felt off, like I couldn't handle things in the same way, and a little low energy, also my child barely slept, was uneasy and wakeful everytime I tried to put him down...not sure if thats related, most likely...
Curious about others new shifts and findings, affirmations, rituals etc. Also wondering how you ladies feel about FEs in herbal tea, oils, and salves? Do you think it would ruin the integrity of the essences? Too much of a good thing? curious to hear your opinions!---have a lot more to share but feel as if I already have written a short novel!
Many green blessings, and much love
