The Essences
The Essences

Subtle Body Essences

These may be used individually or as a sequence

1. Ginger     Etheric Body

The energetic blueprint for our physical body. Imbalances and weaknesses here can eventually manifest on the physical. Helps to repair damage to and realign this body and so promotes balance and stability within the physical.

2. Black Pepper    Emotional Body

Holds our emotional and psychological stability and sensitivity to those around us. Emotions affect the physical body chemistry and quality of life energy available to us. Brings us back to the centre point of balance between  extremes so preventing the emotions from getting stuck at an inappropriate point that can affect the body as a whole.

3. Cayenne Pepper    Mental Body

Records, categorises and files our emotional responses. Helps us to redefine core beliefs which we have held from early life, which may no longer be true for us. Relaxation at many levels helps us to find tolerance, flexibility and positivity.

4. Star Anise    Astral Body

Allows us to recognise ourselves as unique beings located in time and space. Rebalances this body, so that we remain aware of physical reality, but are also able to integrate useful information on other dimensions. Helps when we feel isolated or lacking direction.

5. Cloves   Causal Body

Links us to the collective unconscious, patterning the experiences and lessons we have chosen to learn in life. Rebalances this body by helping us to integrate our experiences and restructure for change.

6. Turmeric   Soul or Celestial Body

Focuses fine levels of universal energy. Related to ‘Higher Self’. Helps us to maintain an awareness of who we are, connecting Physical and Spiritual so that we maintain our ‘wholeness’ and are comfortable in our own skin.

Combination Essences

STRESS can come from many sources and affect us in different ways.
Essences can help but it’s not always easy to find the right one. Often we think we need them all.
Here are 5 combinations that can help.      Which one is right for you?

Snowdrop allays fears; Focus helps discard old habits; Dragons Merge to bring creative ideas into reality; Transformation allows the old to fall away to make room for the new; Gaia grounds and supports integration of all aspects of personality.

Clear the Fog

Testing Times            

exams, house move, new job

Keeper of the Seas clears quickly, reminding the water in our body of it’s perfect state; Black Pepper balances the emotional body so preventing us from getting stuck at emotional extremes.

How Essences Help

I see clients with a wide range of problems. Some seek support during and after conventional treatment for major illness, others at times of emotional challenge such as partnership break-ups and bereavement, or physical change such as puberty and menopause.

They can be of significant help to young people facing stressful situations such as starting a new school or taking exams.
