Flower Essence Healing of the Month of October

 

October is a time of realignment. A readjustment period for our relationships.  New beginnings are on the cards. You may’ve felt like your operating in a completely different way and life sits on a new foundation, an up levelling so to speak. We now have the time and space to keep building on that.

However, we have another transformational process to walk through.

Love planet Venus is in her backward spin until mid November. This starts on the 6th October. The shadow of this transit has been in effect since early September. The effects of which are in full swing for the entire month.

October Energy report

full-mooon-october-2016

 

Full Moon 16th 12.23pm Perth time

Well well well wasn’t September bloody intense. So much happened. So much to navigate.

It’s been a very deep year and so far some us have been turned inside out and upside down. September saw eclipse energy in play. It was not necessarily the time to make big life decisions – at time to sit back and observe. Still, if you made big plans – make allowances for change or changes to occur. It’ll be a while for anyone to feel settled at present with so much activity happening globally and in our own little worlds.  Life is busy.

Some of us are in transition mode. In between worlds. Steps forward, steps back. Even though the intensity of this year has waned. We’ve gone through some deep inner changes, some of which still need to be integrated.

yellowcowslip-orchidThe flower essence that resonates with energies of this month is the Yellow Cowslip orchid.

This flower symbolizes intellect and vitality. It concerns its self with harmony amongst the social order of things.  When we are out of balance there is a propensity to criticize and judge. – This essence allows for the energy of vitality to be restored. Especially when so much change is amongst the mix.

By looking after the self. We become aligned with humanitarian concern. We are impartial and constructive towards creating peace for the greater good. We move towards creating a sense of balance within ourselves and the collective. It’s this move towards creating a sense of balance, individually and universally that resonates so beautifully with this month’s energy.

It must start within to manifest outwardly. If people can’t meet you where you are at – don’t force it – they will either come around or they won’t. This is something that we have no control over. And that’s ok. We’re enough just as we are.  This is the theme for this month. It’s all about quality and not quantity from now on.

New Moon

The New Moon on the 1st October forced us to stop, feel and connect.

During this New Moon, I was away on holiday, celebrating my mothers 70th in Bali – It was an awesome time of connection. Although as some stage I came down with a nasty fever – deeply burning and cleansing through something.–. There’s something about being around family that can still trigger old wounds. The autopilot kicks in and you automatically respond in ways that you thought were long gone. What is that?! This was deep and unyielding and stirred me emotionally in ways I didn’t realize I was still carrying.

In the midst of getting a horrible fever, I also succumbed to the “Bali Belly” or in my case the “Bali Bottom”. If you know what I mean.  Where I so desperately wanted to connect and spend time with my in-laws and my siblings. I was literally shitting myself.

Cia la vie.  Happy New Moon to me.

I sat in my hotel room in a hot sweat, body aches, and no energy. Something wanted acknowledgment – It certainly got my attention. Out came the journal and I connected with myself in ways I hadn’t experienced before.  It was an honest stripping away of past old thinking and believing and owning my crap – literally. The intention for this new moon, naturally set. Connection within. There’s something in that. Where I thought I needed to create a new connection with my family, I actually needed to reconnect with myself, healing old beliefs and behaviors that were well past their use by date.

Despite this bout of sickness, it was an amazingly healing and enlightening holiday.

“Lose what needs to be lost. To find what needs to be found”

I feel I’m abe to settle into the love I am as a person and the woman I’m becoming, warts and all. Whilst I could sense and feel my family’s projections. And my own. I became so acutely aware of how I would react to these and create dynamics that were not supportive of myself or of them. It was very confronting and intense – It made me sad. By accepting these old shadow parts of myself, paved the way for me to accept them fully. I’ve been a harsh judge. I’ve been even harder on myself. Vital energy still took a while to restore.

When families come together, they all carry the same bloodline, karma needs to be worked through and resolved. Ultimately we’re still all individuals in our own right. Some of us fit into this dynamic, some of us don’t. We all see life and love differently and we’re all on different levels of this earth journey and that’s what makes us all so unique. I accept them with no blame, nor shame and that in itself is a feeling beyond words and measure.

I ‘ve been so open and experienced so much healing within my ancestral line ( Flower Essences Boab, Joshua Tree and Paw Paw are awesome for clearing this as very deep energy work – another blog for another time) with the knowing that a lot of the crap that I carried was not my own.

It was a timely completion, a closure, so deeply needed. I was given freedom and insight through this new moon and I will cherish and honor its release.  I think I will treasure it more as I didn’t see it coming – the insights so profound and the inner freedom that came with it so liberating. It wasn’t easy. The good stuff never is. These types of miracles are there for the taking if we can tune in and feel what’s really going on. So much gold to be discovered inwardly at this time.

This has been the lesson, all year. Healing and releasing old crap, connecting deeply, so we can create a new sense of who and what we are.

The intensity will subside especially after the Full Moon. It’s time to move towards whatever makes the heart sing. Even deeper than that what happiness can you find within the simple things. Life needn’t be complicated. What needs revitalizing, a point of view, lifestyle or a coat of paint on a wall. Do whatever will bring a sense of balance or happiness to the fore. Nothing need hold us back and that’s the point.

Humility does and will go a long way.

I remind myself to see the beauty around me and I remind myself of this whenever I feel overwhelmed. There is power in the present moment. Intuition will be strong around this time.

Moving forward is on the horizon, some of us may need to be that little bit more patient. It might not be until late November for the fog to lift. Be mindful of this. Keeping the esteem in check is the key when you are doing very deep inner work. I’ve made the mistake in the past leaning on a friendship when I probably should’ve called my therapist.  Make sure you have a trusted like-minded support network around you. If you feel the cork is about to burst or you just need to get clearer on something deeper that’s surfacing.

The Full Moon on the 16th can push us to face things we’ve been denying. Don’t be afraid to simply acknowledge it. The wisdom will come and you will know no doubt and have the answers to fears and issues that you’ve probably never thought of. The solution to pain or conflict is usually in the facing of it.

Full Moon 16th October

Change is definitely in the air and for some of us, it will be blatantly obvious. It’s about getting real, and also getting into the heart of the matter. Watch what you’re projecting and see if it’s something a little deeper.  It’s the time not to look at life from a superficial standpoint – dive deep to see what’s not only going on for you, yet for others as well. Some of us are being pushed to make strong changes and this type of stuff can be really confronting AND scary, especially if we are being asked to dive into the unknown.

This full moon has the propensity to be a volatile one so try and find a way to react or act in a completely different way. Focus on being effective.

There is something to be said about the power of an individual. Being and standing for what we want and need. However are we able to express this individuality so there is a win-win for all? Own you own authority. Own your own voice. Know that we are ultimately all connected.

There could be a sense of conflict or a push-pull energy – assertion vs peace and balance. Watch how you express yourself through this full moon. Tribal discord is usually due to man enforcing his will on the tribe rather than listening to the will of  his spirit. Spirit is the wise inner warrior. Awaken this. Listen to it. I can’t stress this enough.

Exercise, read, garden meditate whatever helps you channel excess or nervous energy.  Do whatever keeps you grounded. Remember the full moon illuminates what we need to see and shift in our lives., especially emotionally. This one is a dynamic one so take heed and look after yourself.

The rest of the month we can expect the dust to settle. Stop and smell roses if you can and get ready for a head down bum up kinda time. You could get clear glimpses of where your heading.

Whatever this month brings for you – the most important point have, patience. See the beauty in your life.  Be original in your thinking and in your actions. Take your power back if you need. This can be a time of breakthroughs, magic, and alignment. It‘s all and has always been, within you.

Much flowery love

The Myth of Sleep

sleeper-blogss

The Myth of Sleep

Here’s some food for thought around sleep and how quality over quantity is better.

If you stress about not getting your recommended 8 hours beauty sleep. DON’T.  Latest research suggests that this is, in fact a myth.

In days when there was:

no electricity 

no facebook,

no blue light that switches on mysteriously during the night

no television

no email

no technology

sleeper44We slept from dusk to dawn.  People read or wrote by candle light and this didn’t over stimulate the brain as seen with computers and television.

Our ancestors slept in what is known as segmented sleep. Where the natural rhythm of sleep was: sleep for four hours, wake for two, sleep for four.  In the waking hours, it was custom to talk, read, have sex, meditate and pray.

The invention of the 8-hour sleeping recommendation was created out of necessity and convenience.  Some people can get so stressed as they lay awake at night about not getting their “8 hours”.  As the clock ticks away the more agitated they get.

It’s natural sometimes to wake during the night – it’s part of our natural sleep cycle.

If this happens for you, give yourself a break. Understand that it may simply mean that your physiology doesn’t fit the modern day mold. Use this time to meditate, my write and change the way we simply think about sleep. By changing our mindset it will help reduce our anxiety around it.

If you can recognise that:

  • Waking during the night is part of our sleep cycle
  • There are other ways to rest the mind and body
  • Shut off technological stimulation at least 2 hours before bed
  • Exercise before bed or even take a bath
  • Find your own natural rhythm and be ok with that. Some of us can structure our day around rest period. Young Mums, simply sleep when bub sleeps. Mums with young toddlers can implement quiet time.
  • If you’re drained and tired, treat yourself to consecutive early nights. It will change your life.  Seriously very healing and sooo good.
  • Regular bodywork can also help. Of course, Bowen, Tissue Salts and Flower Essences are the bomb for this.

Remember, getting sleep is simply the best, feeling rested is the penultimate. It’s not about how much sleep you get but the quality of it. Gaining quality sleep is better than the amount we get – the deeper it is the more rested we feel.

September Monthly Energy and Moon Report

September Energy Report 2016

1st September 2016 New Moon ( Solar Eclipse) 5.03pm Perth time

17th September Full moon (Lunar Eclipse) 3.05 am Perth time

septemnernewmoon

September is going to be a cracker of a month, with themes of truth and closure.

Closure on the past, and on habits that you are so ooovvveeerr, including people, places and things are moving onward this month. It’s the last of the purging energies.

If your tired or dragging your feet, even agitated, Mercury, the planet of communications, travel and information intergration) just went retrograde (backwards) on 30th August. Thinking and communication may be skewed. We’re all operating subconsciously and our attention is internal.

Don’t be afraid to slow down. There’s something really important that you either need to hear, see, say or do.  If your vulnerable or low in energy or if you have the propensity for any autoimmune stuff, be the tortoise, not the hare. Trust me, You’ll be thankful by mid-Oct. This month it’s really really important to restore and replenish our energy. I can’t stress this enough.

Drink water and eat good food – grab some early nights. Getting optimum sleep is the order of the month.  (I rave on about sleep in this month’s newsletter – Check in here to get it)

Let go of perfection, concentrate on the details, don’t be obsessive.

One needs energy to create change, some things will have to go, so you can create the freedom that we crave. This is how eclipse energy works.

September sees two eclipses – one on the new moon and one on the full moon. Eclipse energy, corrects us if we have wandered too far off our path.

Reflect, redo things. Declutter if you need.

pink trumpetThe Essence that resonates for this month is the Pink Fountain Trigger Plant

Pink Fountain Trigger essence activates vital life force. It’s the one I felt has best resonated with September as it’s symbolic of the new change that’s ready to erupt.

It’s a new vital force that’s making itself present after months of internal and external struggle.  Some of us are really tired, complacency may have set in. Pink Trigger re-ignites that vital flame in order to take on the essential responsibilities and not fall into a sense of overwhelm.

This is the essence for those that suffer from fatigue, autoimmune and can feel “dead” on their feet at times. This essence elevates energy levels and reinvigorates self-belief.

This is the essence for overwhelm. I use this essence in my pain and stress treatments. It can also be taken singularly to replenish and restore the soul. It’s a deep essence and is amazingly effective.

New moon 1st September

It’s been an intense year thus far and we’ve had to really dig deep on more than one occasion

This new moon sees the beginning of new energy. Not defined. It’s symbolic as it comes with eclipse energy. It’s important to be specific with any intention you want to create and manifest and watch what occurs over the next 6 months. Be really specific.  Set these a few hours after the new moon

With Mercury on the low down, this is quite lovely as we can really reconnect with ourselves. There is something really magical about this new moon.  It has a strong feminine quality to it. Be receptive to what comes up and adjust accordingly. The universal matrix will respond to the call and give you more of what you want and some, especially under this energy. Be responsive (not reactive).

Be individual and independent in all dealings and do and be what’s right for you. For some, this new energy may not reveal itself until the Full Moon eclipse on the 22nd.

Mid-Month 

By mid-September be on the lookout for what’s real and what’s fake. It could all be full of shit. Only you know. Discern. Be positive. Think big and don’t hold back.

Trust your heart, gut and mind through this time. Logic needn’t be discounted it has a place here so make sure you embrace everything. If you’ve felt like you’re in transition phase this will come to an end this month. Harmony is what is needed to aspire to and create an inner flow. This will reflect throughout your life. In fact, we can expect a sense of expansion AND harmony in relationships from this time forward and for at least next 12 months.

In reality, we have no idea how the future will turn out. What we are certain of is what is happening in this moment and set out what we want with the very best of who we are now.

My heart is bursting as I write this. It feels like meeting the love of your life all over again after being with them for 40 years. We begin to see with new eyes. If this doesn’t feel like your reality, don’t despair as any angsty energy will settle by the end of the month. Just know that there is a lot of good stuff that’s waiting for you to tap into. It’s always been there. We have the knowing, that we can choose how we feel and what we think, we create. We’ve always had the power.

Insights and realisations come in a flash.

Full moon

The Full Moon eclipse is on 17th Sept – this is powerful and brings emotional healing for some.  I love the feeling of this moon.  Whatever arises be compassionate and real. Soften. Don’t hesitate to take time for yourself. Make sure who and what’s at the centre of your life. Take note where and who your energy is going to. Be patient. This will be the making not the breaking of you. Be creative in finding solutions to problems.

This moon also sees the Spring equinox in the southern hemisphere and Autumn equinox in the northern – this is the symbolic time of year in order to create balance in our lives. Night and day, physical and spiritual, masculine and feminine. Be strong in your energetic and emotional boundaries, this is something to constantly readjust this month.

We are entering into an era now. We need to be able to receive, as much as we give and in order to do this we need to slow down and be in a receptive state and not go go go all the time. Balance is the keyword. Control is not necessary now.

September is a big month. It’s like a circuit breaker to what has gone down over the past 4 – 6 years. So what’s ever transpired for you over this time – it’s done. This the time to run over the cracks of the pavement and not be afraid of the boogy man, the unknown.

The energy of 2017, the year of beginnings will be felt at the tail end of September.

Commitment, focus, and strength are themes. What and who are you committed to? What are your strengths? and how and where are you focusing this? Are you living your life in such a way that it lights you up? What does this look like for you? Through September this will become clear.

Simply watch what transpires and go with it. Be individual, independent and receptive, and listen to the core of who you are. It has much to say. It has much to reveal to you.

Much flowery love

Tracy

Just a footnote – the healing affirmations are written by Vasudeva and Kadambii Barnao and I must make a credit of this here. The monthly energy report is written by me for others to be aware and tune into the cosmic and natural environment that surrounds us – Lunar energy is usually felt three days before and prior to each moon phase.

 

 

 

Magnesium: The Miracle Mineral and How You Can Benefit

magphos

From the moment I opened my clinic, I noticed a pattern occurring with some of my clients.

Many would cramp up as soon as they hopped on my table. I decided to do some research, and I found that this was  a sign of magnesium deficiency. Further research led me to the best type of a magnesium which came in the form of a tissue salt.

The human body needs only 500 milligrams (mg) Magnesium for healthy body function. We receive only a small proportion of it through our food by juicing leafy greens, eating nuts. chocolate, and beans which all contain magnesium.

The tissue salts are best because they are tiny tiny tiny. Our blood cells will absorb it immediately. This happens, because blood cells will only absorb minerals that are small than it. This is why they are so effective and they are so ah-mazing.

Other than preventing cramps here are 4 simple benefits of taking magnesium.

1. Balanced hormones

Magnesium helps in the production of creating hormones such as progesterone, estrogen, and testosterone. It can reduce hot flushes by 50% for women who are transitioning through menopause.

It can settle and improve mood swings. Prior, during and after menstruation and even lesson cramping. Magnesium’s a natural muscle relaxant.

Asian-Power-Couple-Sleeping-e14236117854922. Deeper, lovelier rocking SLEEP

It gets the sleep receptors in your brain to chillax. It regulates Cortisol, the stress hormone. If you suffer from insomnia. Magnesium is the go to. Melatonin is the big sleep hormone and we can enhance its production by taking magnesium. Reduce the exposure to mobile phones, tablets and screens at least an hour before bed will also help.

3. Magnesium lowers blood sugar

Magnesium with control insulin production which results in less sugar cravings. This is fab for kids who insist on sugary treats. This also makes it wonderful for weight loss. Great for diabetics or type 2 diabetes. Those that suffer from constipation or gut issues be rest assured this stuff keeps that at bay.

4. More Energy

Magnesium fuels cellular energy. In the tinee, tiny cell called the mitochondria. The little energizer cell within our cells, magnesium is creating energy here. If your cells are getting the nutrients they need, then you’re able to feel so fitness_729-420x0much more alive and active.

Feeling energized will give you the time back to live and do what you want

Magnesium is such a simple natural mineral that does so much and is easily assimilated by the body. A serious no brainer.

TellTale Signs That Are Seen All Over Your Face

Telltale signs of mineral deficiency can be seen all over the face.

If you have rosy cheeks, chin and forehead then this is one of the signs of Magnesium deficiency.

Cramping, constipation, lethargy, hormonal imbalance, stress, chronic pain, and thyroid issues are other indicators.

Tissue consultations are thorough. Using facial diagnosis, and personal information, I can determine which minerals you need.

If you wish to book a tissue salt consultation, you can contact me here. Consultations are delivered either via skype or in my clinic. All details are on my website www.silverdale.com.au

August Energy and Full Moon Report

August Energy and Full Moon Report 2016

Full Moon August 18th 5.26pm Perth Time.

2016 thus far has been a hard road for some so if this is true for you take a breather if you can.

fullmoonaugust18There’s also talk that this August Full Moon being an eclipse.

This kinda game changer energy happens during an eclipse, as it’s a natural course correct for when we may have strayed too far from our original path.

This is kinda thing is definitely awakening in September. I think we can see this moon as a possible prelude of what’s to come.

There is a very expansive feel to this Full Moon. Anything that aligns with an element of the greater good will bring people together. You can build or even rebuild stronger bonds with people. There’s even a strong humanitarian energy awakening at the latter part of this month. Have fun and bring out the rebellious part of your nature.

There is a strong drive to break old patterns and on a deep level. Be individual and don’t take on another’s dogma nor teaching. Be more discriminative in where you place your power and who you’re giving your power to. Experiment and don’t be afraid to try new things.

The Flower Essence that resonates with this Full Moon of August is Parakeelya. This essence restores the sense of self-dignity and inner strength, resisting the urge to withdraw, but to be actively part of society and able to assert one’s right as an individual. It’s an essence for the hypersensitive.

parakeelyaeeeeeeThis is also for those that feel completely unappreciated and/or taken for granted. It will ignite and improve energy levels and awakens a confidence in self-determination. One learns to say No on this essence. This essence can be used to increase physical and emotional energy levels. If you’re interested, you can order some here.

The energy of for the rest of the month is about finding that deep and unwavering appreciation for your own individual essence and what makes that shine. If you have to make a choice on anything – Choose you.

Just this past weekend, I participated in a day retreat. It was within this meditation retreat that I began to detach from what I believed and became retrospective.

For a short time this created a strong inner conflict and I found myself at a loss as old belief patterns were being challenged. It brought up questions on what was my truth? my fears? and where I wasn’t being honest within myself. What was I really aligned to?

So I let go.

What revealed itself was a very strong sense of my own beliefs and what was true for me. I found an inner harmony, something I’ve been searching for, for a very long time. This inner shift allowed me more freedom to be creative and to listen and embrace my own inner voice, my own teachings. This has been an amazingly liberating and self-empowering experience.

A lot’s changing for many people on this level. It’s a time where very old baggage, and ego beliefs, are being expelled from our inner system and forced out of us like that last little bit of toothpaste from the toothpaste tube.

The first two weeks of August (or even this whole year) may have felt like this for you. One Step forward, Five steps back.

“These days our inner world needs to be involved in all that we do and demands equality with the external reality so we can create a balance on how we manage our lives.” Sonja Francis

Explore these areas and find the balance to integrate any new Aha moments.

What does it look like to view and hear your body? Hear your heart? There’s so much intelligence here and a knowing of what and where we’re going next. Slow down. Everyone on this planet is learning some form of this. Being adaptable will prove to be an asset.

Our thoughts radiate like a beacon and can create a vibration that is and/or isn’t in line with what we truly want. When there’s an imbalance, for example – obsessive thinking, this can happen. Negative mind loops can prevent us from creating an inner space that is conducive with what’s supportive to our inner peace and wellbeing. This can make us feel drained and exhausted.

Ask, where does my focus go? Do I just focus more on what’s in my external reality? What are my boundaries with people? The world? Work? The internet? and The media? What do you do to manage your mental wellbeing? What do you do to manage stress?

If you’re unhappy in your relationship, friendships or even in your job and the mind chatter is less than supportive, explore what happens when you just let the resentment, the anger and the crap go. Emotionally, mentally and physically. What is actually there? Can you see the other as they truly are? Don’t let negative emotions blind your reality or what’s in front of you. You might be missing the point entirely. This month we’re gearing up for some new energy to enter. Let go of expectations. Clear the decks and get ready to fly.

Taking care and putting yourself first are themes. By doing this you’re less likely to project or create a negative mindset or act out from the shadow/negative part of our nature. Self-care is paramount at this time.

If you always put yourself last or martyr yourself, ask why? and to what benefit?

There’s no honour in creating dynamics where you feel last in line. A few years ago, I had to play executioner with a lot of things. It was possibly the hardest and saddest time of my life. Certain events had played themselves out. Life was never the same. I realised I was so tired of attracting and being constantly triggered around not feeling seen, heard, and misunderstood. I had to let go and be in my own space for a time and detach totally to everyone and everything in order to reset my inner compass and inner dynamic. Some things did return – A lot didn’t.

When I reflect, for some, the timing was really crap, I’d let a lot of people down. I was empty and had nothing left. In these moments though I had a choice on who and what to choose – so I chose myself.

Change can happen if we give ourselves the time and space to do it. This pivot point is necessary for all of us. By respecting ourselves and the process we’re able to embrace a lot of our imperfections and just let go. Let go of the past and all that shite that is seriously no longer needed and weighing you down.

“Different aspects of the past do come around as we become aware of new options. That’s why we need to review the past to renew the present if we want different outcomes and we need to use our intuition to access new potentials and possibilities.” Jennifer Hoffman

We’re just about to head into an eclipse season in September, combined with a Mercury Retrograde (planet of communication energy shifts backwards) and we’ll see a lot shift and move so it’s a great time to go within, and invest in rest. Your inner liberator will thank you for it.

Communicate in a simple and direct way over the next six or so weeks. Double-check travel plans. Slow down if you’re feeling blocked. If you need to make major decisions make sure you’re open to having things change, starting Aug 30th – Sept 22, things do and will be in a state of flux.

Where ever you are on your journey make sure it has your unique tattoo on it. Question what’s not working nor feeling quite right. Express your wisdom and don’t be afraid if it doesn’t resonate with anyone. It only takes one person to recognise and value what you have to offer. This can lift anyone into a new state of appreciation not only for themselves but possibly for the entire cosmos!

Much Flowery Love

Starting with the New Moon on the 4th July (7pm Perth, Aust time). Something could come to an end and a whole new beginning awaits us. The energy is centred around the home, family, the mother, creative projects, lifestyle, nutrition and how we nurture ourselves and others.

At the last full moon in June – the energy was around awakening and healing within our masculine nature – that’s the doing, assertive nature. This moon’s theme is about the feminine and feminine wounds – The receptive side of our nature. It can be about how our needs as children, may or may not have been met.

Flower Essence of the Month

The Flower Essence for this month is the Purple Eremophila

This essence helps us to be objective when dealing with relation, relating or relationship issues as these dynamics go through big changes. It helps in stabilising emotions as these changes take place.

This essence brings in a sense of calm and lifts the pain from the heart through having to make adjustments. It awakens a sense of awareness into something bigger,  reducing any feelings of panic and fear through any sense of loss and change.

purpleemphA great essence if you’ve been forced to change careers or your job security is under threat.

It helps one to see the implications of any actions or reactions and takes into account the details that create certain situations.

July can prove to be a really deep, and rich time, forcing us to connect to what is and accepting where we’re at in our lives. Reality time.

If there are issues, journal and sit with these, eventually you’ll be able to figure out if anything significant is blocking or expanding your way.

What I’ve found to be liberating, is when I’m going through a deep transformative time I’ve created a small support group for when “stuff” comes to the surface – I’ve struggled with this a lot through the years as I’m a very deep, introverted, empathic and private person. It’s helped me to integrate and understand what’s within my emotional mix.

It’s a healthy strategy, as I’m able to honour who I am and still be open to what is. If I don’t do this then my mind and well-being suffer and that’s not good for anyone. How do you nurture the deepest parts of yourself? Do you allow them to see the light of day?

Trust and create ways that are right for you to be in the world. The world needs more people who are able to truly nurture themselves.

Nurturing is more than just finding balance if there is such a thing,  it’s about creating behaviours that actively support us through our thoughts, actions and beliefs. Are you nurturing yourself in this way?

The Full Moon

The Full Moon on the 20th July (6.58am Perth Time) carries the energy around communication, how we communicate, and how we relate to others. It can also expose how we structure our lives. It would be a great time to review goals or change things if any plans need tweaking. We can receive strong insights and experience some unforeseen developments.

This this is the time to recognize self-care patterns and how these balance out with the practical realities of life. What’s the current priority? Are you putting yourself before others?

I’ve had a lot going on of late and have felt a lot of decisions have had to be made.  At one point I didn’t feel like I was making any headway so just offered everything up to the universe and let go of control and through the force of surrender,  answers appeared organically and easily.  I think we forget that surrender can be an option and a choice that’s on offer when a lot of things need closure or in need of single focus and attention.

This is the time to be really gentle with ourselves, especially if deep realizations of your life are in play. Surrender to what is and notice how this can create more space and peace in your life – sometimes we don’t have all the answers and sometimes that’s the way it’s meant to be.

This Full Moon will help us to get into a receptive flow. Relational dynamics are shifting and have been for a while and this happens as our own awareness expands and we begin to become aware and awaken and even align to other potentials and possibilities.

Get the creative juices flowing to create solutions and make adjustments where necessary. Make them unique to you and be aware that unexpected challenges could arise. It might a good time to buy a lotto ticket. A win could be on the cards.

Since April, if you’ve felt tired, unmotivated, been bingeing on Netflix, hibernating to restore energy levels, dealt with unexpected illness, struggled to find a mental and emotional clarity, angry, frustrated, blocked in getting projects off the ground, life’s felt like you’ve been walking through mud, relationship dynamics have changed or even ended.

Please have heart, things are about to lighten up and begin moving forward in a more rewarding, realistic and focused way. We get our mojo back.

Find a happy place, nurture it, love it and communicate this to your nearest and dearest. The people in your world and the world in general really need to hear it.

Much flowery love

Silverlining | June Monthly Energy Report

“We can complain because rose bushes have thorns, or rejoice because thorn bushes have roses.” – Abraham Lincoln

New Moon 5th June 10.59am

Full Moon 20th June 7.02pm

This month brings in a huge amount of change and movement.

Around the New Moon 5th June, stay focused and create a plan.  Change could be forced upon us. It’s really important to stay grounded and anchored through this moon and throughout entire the month. When we feel anchored we’re less likely to dart from one thing to another. This could happen if we feel overwhelmed or just have a lot going on.  Breathe, reconnect.

A personal life reset could also occur. After the New Moon you could find yourself in a new space with the past well and truly behind you.

The Flower Essence for this Month

scentedsundew1The Flower Essence resonating with the energies of June is the Scented Sundew.

This flower essence stimulates grounded focused attention and helps us to find our way. The small details matter and we are able to connect to the present. If you vague out and daydream or get carried away with external environments then this is the essence for you.

From personal experience, this essence is one of the best. It’ll help you find the clarity you need and order a scattered mind, especially if you have a lot of project work and a lot of tasks to get through.

Be gentle and sensitive to others. Some may feel raw and edgy.

Make sure you have several tools at your disposal to channel negative emotion, mind states or scattered energy. If you have a propensity for this you may find yourself tired and drained, with not a lot being accomplished. Sometimes, though it’s ok to have a crap day – surrender, go within and find your own answers.

When focused a lot can be achieved.

Themes of the month

1. Communication and Our Inner narrative

Communication is a theme for June and looking at our  inner communication, the words, and concepts that go on around and around in our heads all day every day. Is your mind constantly on the go? Does it duck and weave and chat just about “stuff” all day? Are you easily distracted?

If so, STOP. Just stop.

This mental behavior can keep us in a negative or even toxic relationship with our self and others. By doing this we’re not available to the moment. It’s like keeping an argument you’ve had with your partner, friend or colleague continuously playing out in your mind. You’re still in it, but the argument is well and truly over. This is a mental concept and not even a real one. Funny huh? The majority of us live in this space.

The energies of this month have the propensity to keep us here if we are not grounded or anchored.

Questions to ask would be: Are you expecting people to live by your truth and your expectations? Can I be versatile? Are you self accepting? Can you accept others warts and all?

If you’re craving change the best place to start is your own inner narrative and personal story. What are you not happy with? Or what are you happy with and want more of? What’s your story?

Last week I attended a fantastic talk by Globalactive. I saw futurist Sohail Inayatullah give a talk on Holistic Psychology and about the state of our planet and our future.

Sohail mentioned that within this time in history, man has the propensity to, through science and genetics, change the nature of our planet. I know for one I’m not sure that messing with Mother Nature is in our best interests nor if this is a world I want to live in. Do you? We can change this if we change our story and create a society that respects and aligns with the planet rather than changing and manipulating it. That’s gonna be my story anyway.

2. Time and Energy

Vassu Banaro – “Our time is not renewable. It’s vital that we understand this.”

Our time on this planet is limited so it’s also imperative we use it in such a way that we can create the life and legacies that we want and not what we don’t want. Time is the new currency

By moving towards a new story will lend to the old falling away. Time is of the essence. If you’re not spending your time wisely then ask yourself why?

Where’s your energy is going? Check it out and if it’s less than supportive, give it the flick.

Full Moon 20th June 

The Full moon on June 20th will be expansive in nature. Be careful if you’re prone to speaking first and thinking later.

Strong changes around belief structures, philosophy, travel, spirituality, and freedom could be themes.

This is a very strong Full Moon which is very close to the Winter solstice  – which is normally a symbolic time to honor the feminine side of our nature.  This is very interesting as the energies of this moon lean towards healing masculine energies which is the doing nature, how we act on what we want, feel and see and how we go about getting what we want. Internal balance of both sides of our nature and energy are needed during this time. Follow and act on your intuition. This could be a time of extremes.

This monthly theme played out just the other day. Awareness and releasing always come at times when we least expect it.  There is always an opportunity to deepen and surrender – letting go of what no longer serves.

My daughter and I have been working on a school project together and lately, things have been somewhat combative – Kid school projects  can either be the making or the breaking of us as parents.   Especially if you have a child with cognitive and auditory sensory issues, who struggle to retain information.  Certain sequential steps are needed so that  learning outcomes can be taught in a specific way that is conducive to the way the child learns and understands.

If you’re a parent who has a child with these issues you’ll understand how grueling and intense this can be. To constantly repeat yourself.  To have to explain in minor detail. EVERY little single fact.  If you’ve seen the character the Sloth in the movie, Zootopia, then it’s that x 2.

It’s a trying process and one that has forced me recently to take stock and look at my behavior and beliefs.  I was forced to detach and take a huge step back.

Daughter no 1 and I are logger heads about her project about James Stirling and what the Hardy family (the first settlers) had in their pantry. After a brief period of time, we decide to take a 5 min break as ordered by hubby.  My daughter left the room.

I held my head in my hands and said ” This is doing my frigging head in” Hubby immediately responded,  “But it’s you who’s being so combative – what’s wrong?” It was then I just blurted it out.  ” I think a part of me resents her – Why can’t she be like some normal kid so I don’t have to deal with all this bloody learning delay shit – I’m sick and tired of constantly carrying this worry and fear for her”.  There I said it,  and as shameful as it sounds it felt bloody great – I felt the burning sensation lifted from my chest and my heart felt free.

I got up from my chair and stormed out of the room and went into my bathroom and looked into the mirror and all I could see was my father staring back at me.  I was a ghast –  As a teenager and even up until a few years ago,  I never felt my Father could accept me for who I was,  flaws and all (there were many), and my hippy beliefs (which I now call holistic).

I couldn’t help being who I was and I always felt his judgment and disappointment of never living up to his ideal or his standards.  Yet, here I was, feeling a similar way about my daughter.

In that moment.  In that raw epiphany type moment – I owned it all. The resentment. The shame. The disappointment and as I embraced this shadow part of myself – I understood my father and all that came with – including his fears. I carried those same fears. I embraced me – I embraced my daughter, warts and all.  With this acceptance came relief and with the relief came a depth of gratitude.   No doubt this lesson may come up again and again. The awareness and depth of understanding will arise when it does.  This is the key.

When my daughter reentered the room I looked into her eyes and I saw a bright, kind, independent and amazingly aware soul. How could I resent her for being who she was?  How can I expect anything more from her?  Why would I even want to?  I opened my arms and as she fell into them, we hugged and as the tears fell from my cheeks I knew in that moment I had released something quite significant.  It was a very precious and profound moment.  We had both been seen.

It’s this type of realization, resolution, and insight that can come to us if we let it. Healing around father, and masculine wounds. Strong intuitive flashes could be prevalent bringing in some much need relief especially if you’ve felt like your life is going nowhere or you if you’ve been feeling rather flat.

On the other hand, it can be a great time to be social and reflect on the activity of the month. Deep inner stirrings can be ignited.  A time to walk your talk. Some of us may be stretched out of our comfort zone.  Sit with this and allow the feelings to flow through you.

Know that your time and energy are precious.  Where’s your time and energy heading? Hopefully, it’s towards a better future for you, me and the generations to come.

Much Flowery love

Silverlining | May Monthly Energy Report 2016

May Energy Blog 2016

“I am at one. My mind holds my body in a loving embrace, my Soul wraps the Light around. There is radiance in my being so vitally complete”

Integration is the word for the month of May.

New Moon 7th May 3.29am

Full Moon 22nd May 5.14am

After the wake up call some of us received in April, May’s going to feel like a holiday. This is the month to figure out what truly matters.

May is a month that can work in one of two ways hence there’re two flowers that resonate with the energies of this month.

wasmoke bush1. WA Smokebush. If you’re struggling to connect, stop and slow down. This is THE mind and body connection essence.

The WA Smokebush aids in facilitating reconnection.  It’s the essence needed to regain control of all aspects of one’s being. To re-integrate, the subtle and more physical levels. So if you are struggling to slow down and resisting connection, this the one.

2. Pin Cushion Hakea is the essence in opening up to new concepts and ideas. It takes the fear out of the unknown and untried. It helps in activating exploration of new thought patterns.

It’s our mind that keeps us from achieving what we need. If it’s time for you to stretch and you’re resisting, this is the essence that can help with moving past and integrating new forms of beliefs and thinking.

Both are integrative essences.

Hakea-laurina-Pincushion-HakeaFlower Essence therapy is one of the many self integrative therapies to embrace right now. It’s all about awareness of subconscious fears and patterning. Flower Essence Therapy clears these blocks. It’s deep, accurate and effective inner work.

Integrating new consciousness ideals and beliefs are necessary in completing this process. By doing this you’ll create a strong and solid foundation in all that you do.

If the same old issues keep raising their head or the same relationship dynamic have come around, go deeper and see the part you play in it.

If you’re being forward focused with a continual eye on the end game and forcing your way through, you could risk missing a vital  piece to your puzzle. This piece could be the key for everything. Be aware and chillax if it all gets too much – there’s more to come.

The most frustrating part at this is time is that the forward moving energy is there – you can feel it and that’s what’s making things so frustrating, the bigger picture is staring you in the face. If you are running a business and it’s quiet or you’re pushing and working really hard and getting nowhere? Welcome to May.

This will be temporary so breathe easy. Five planets in our cosmos are working their magic in a way that’s forcing us inward. No need to pull your hair out. By connecting inwardly and recognising this and creating steps or rethinking strategies is the formula for success.

Get grounded and earthy.  Dig in the garden, dance and come back to yourself and operate on a more practical level.

The New Moon on the 7th is has a strong healing vibe to it – With all this retrograde action having us look at our past this will be gentle and a new restart on what you love and value.  Set your intentions with what you value the most.  Keep these close – discard the rest. How can you bring more beauty, love, peace and appreciation into your life? Are you grateful for what you already have?

Redo, readjust, reconnect, rewrite, reconsider and rethink plans and ideas for the future. Most importantly trust your gut if you have to make important or strong decisions. What you value will come forward and what you need to be spending your most precious time on will most definitely become clear.

If your not feeling particularly appreciated, then look at how you appreciate yourself. By changing within you can change the out comes of your life.  Some things will become more valuable than others. Intuition will guide you here. Momentum will build if you stay the course.

It’s also imperative this month that we hold our own individual beliefs and ideals. It’s not a time to follow the crowd or get amongst any group mentality. Individuality is king. Connect to what’s true for you and not what’s expected from others.

For some May, may feel that their year is just beginning.

If you are already taking time to reflect, breakthroughs and deeper connection to the self is more than possible. Moving through old karma is easier and the sense that we are supported by something so much bigger than ourselves becomes more and more obvious. Leaps in consciousness are more prevalent now. Take the leap and feel the difference this kind of connection can make.

Volatility could be in the air around the time of the Full Moon on 22nd May. Keep boundaries strong through this time. If you’re up against passive aggressive behaviour – ignore it – at least for now.   Don’t buy into anything that’s less than positive. People could be really opinionated, narrow-minded and assume and presume without finding out the true facts.  So much is in a state of flux right now so find you’re own truth at this time.

Frustrated just stop, feel, and acknowledge.  Tune with your inner world. The direction you seek can be found here. Some things are coming to fruition and others are coming to a sense of closure.  Take time out to see what this could be for you.

May is a special month. This is the time we can make some amazing inward roads that’s fulfiling and healing for the psyche AND for the soul. Insights will be huge. Go for it.

Much Flowery Love
