Changing Times Essence
Inhabit these changing times, release unproductive thoughts, and live with fluidity, openness, joy and enthusiasm.
Changing Times Essence contains three Essences: Forsythia (grown in NYS), White Chestnut (classic Bach remedy), and Tidal Forces to help us swim with the tides of life.
Forsythia helps to open up and encourages growth on all levels (physical, spiritual, emotional), and forsythia bolsters one to keep moving forward with joy.
Fun TCM Factoid: Summer is the Fire time of year, and the emotion of Fire is Joy. We want to be cultivating joy this time of year, as the seeds of joy that are nurtured now will sustain us through the dark days of winter into early spring.
A lot of folks are feeling like they cannot be joyful with all that’s going on, but we all need to nurture and cultivate joy. Joy is imperative for our mental health, in the long and short term, and it is a most radical act in a society that tells many of us that we have to “earn” our joy or that joy can only be found in particular circumstances. Get out there, nurture your joy, and see what energy, light and beauty it brings to your life!
White Chestnut, a classic Bach Flower Remedy, encourages a peaceful and calm mind when thoughts and worries go round-and-round in one’s head. I don’t know about you, but it’s hard not to have the same scripts playing in my head on a day to day basis. This remedy allows us to “dump” those unproductive thoughts into the compost pile! (I had an image of dumping a wheelbarrow full of thoughts that were not helping me into a compost heap when I first took this remedy!)
Tidal Forces (an Alaskan Environmental Essence) embodies rhythm and balance, loss and gain, and allows us to adapt to the swiftly changing currents of life. This essence helps release the old and receive the new with constant and unyielding fluidity. Tidal Forces soothes and balances overly emotional, fiery states of being, washes away mental resistance to change, and helps us accept and receive what is in the present moment. This is one of my favorite essences, it’s really wonderful to move with the tides of life!
How to use: take two drops in a glass of water two to four times per day. That’s it!
