How We Came to Love Wild Oat for The Cardinal T-Square

Posted by admin on Mar 27, 2010

Editors’ Note: Following up on last week’s blogathon, we were discussing this topic amongst ourselves and some of our authors. After emailing one another, we realized that we had developed an interesting and hopefully helpful piece for this blog.

Auntie Moon/CJ Wright:
Wouldn’t it be cool if there was a Cardinal T-Square Blogathon essence and we could all be sipping it right now?   Maybe we could just drink a bunch of “Drank” or “Mary Jane,” anti-energy drinks, until we find the right one: Read the rest of this entry »

Balancing on a Sunbeam: Sunflower Essence and Self-Confidence

Posted by admin on Feb 6, 2010

©2010 by Donna Cunningham, MSW

One of the ways I came to know the essences in my collection in the early days was to meditate on one each night. I would put a dropperful of an essence into a glass of water, stir thoroughly, and sip it slowly while noting the thoughts or impressions that came into my mind. Read the rest of this entry »

Pussytoes Essence: Recover Surrender

Posted by admin on Jan 10, 2010

By Deborah Bier, PhD, maker of the Whole Energy Essences

I received an email recently from an essence customer who purchased a Whole Energy Essences Recovery Essence set and couldn’t find a description for Pussytoes in the book we  sent along with it (an earlier edition of The Encyclopedia of Vibrational Essences).  That was because Pussytoes was a late addition to complete this set, and I never got around to writing an entry!

But suddenly, I felt the urge to write it.  Looking through my research notes, I could see why: it is actually a “fleur du jour” — a term used by my Vibration co-editor, Donna Cunningham. This expression refers to any essence that keeps being indicated again and again across many people because it is a reflection of a larger cosmic, impersonal need of the moment.

Untying Knots About an Essence’s Use

Posted by admin on Dec 13, 2009

Editors’ Note: The below is correspondence between Vibration editor Deborah Bier and Acey from Sparkling Lotus ( This type of back-and-forth is typical when essence makers, practitioners or users are trying to build on one other’s impressions and experiences with an essence in order to understand its action better. The correspondence came from a search Deborah did for information about Thyme, both parties never having met or corresponded before.  We are grateful that there are essence makers like Acey — who turned out to already be a Vibration fan — willing to so generously share their knowledge in this way. And thank goodness for the internet: what would we do without the contact and learning it facilitates!

Hi, Acey — I was looking online for some maker’s description of Thyme essence, and found your resonated the most of those I found.  I’m thinking from the way you described it, that it maybe can be used as a “toner” essence — one that enhances the action of others.  Does that seem to fit from your experience? I only have a not-much-used research Thyme essence I made some years ago.  It was called for in a mixture I was making to help tend to tomato plants that have the late blight, and I was curious about its known action.

August  12:
Hi Deborah – So sorry for the delay in my response.  It’s that drop-in summer guest time of year!   I do very much think of Thyme as a toning agent and also a source of amplification pertaining to a group of essences to be used in combination.  This trait seems especially prominent when thyme serves as a bridge for other essences that feel/seem disparate in their vibrational and healing signatures.   Do you have experience with Lemon Verbena?  I have found that it has similar properties.

Koeh-271In any event, I have worked with thyme most usually on behalf of clients who are very hypersensitive at a vibrational level.  The remedy can be especially useful if they are suspicious of blends or synergies that contain more than three essences.  The thyme signature seems to help them “sort” the various inclusions in a way that leaves them feeling more knowledgeable and confident rather than anxious or preoccupied by the possibility of energetic bombardment.

August 12:
Acey, thanks for the reply.  Peach is also a toner, as are a few others. You might have caught Vibration’s article on the topic.

Good to have the info about the sensitive folks — they certainly do have suspicions for good reasons, though some take it to the level of never taking anything at all.  Yes, this mixture I made that called for it had two separate threads running through it, so sorting might have been called for! Thanks.

An Essence Boosts a Reiki Attunement

Reiki is a strong form of energy work for healing, and, as a Reiki Master, I find that Reiki and flower essences complement each other well.  Reiki provides a deep and gently relaxing experience during which the client’s own healing mechanisms are activated.

If taken for a period of time after a Reiki session, the essences can continue to facilitate the ongoing release of blockages and imbalances. Read the rest of this entry »

Red Clover: Doing New Things with Confidence

The other day I asked my guidance for a flower essence that might help me with my tendency towards mood swings these days. You know, I’m like everybody else. I watch the news on television, look at what I think I might need to do to make it in today’s economy and think “oh, crap!”

I do alright as long as I keep focused on what I’m doing — I feel happy and engaged, in fact. But if I haven’t made enough sales or made enough appointments for our spiritual counseling and healing business at the end of the day… well, like I said, I’m like anyone else. Sometimes it’s hard to keep the fruit bats of doubt and fear at bay. Read the rest of this entry »

A Challenge to Vibration’s Readers

Posted by admin on Aug 26, 2009

By Deborah Bier, PhD, maker of Whole Energy Essences and co-editor of this blog

7675541.thbWe invite our readers to participate in a collaborative project where many of us make and test the same flower essence – Gladiolus in this case, pictured here – and share our impressions of the essence-making process, and use of your essence.

Gretchen Lawlor’s June, 1999 article in Vibration Magazine offered a simple, clear method for making flower essences, so we hope many of you will embark on the adventure of  making a Gladiolus essence this summer. In an earlier edition, I gave some perspective on how essence makers come up with meanings and uses for their remedies. (See “Discovering What an Essence Does“.)

One request: the color of your Glad may make a difference, so do let us know what color flower you used. For an interesting experiment, someone might want to make an essence from of several colors of glads together, or several different essences from flowers of different colors, noting the separate notes (if any) that the color of the flower contributes.

We do not recommend that you research other essence company’s offerings of Gladiolus essences before you make and test your essence because it will bias your results.  Remember, there aren’t any “right” and “wrong” answers here — your experience and understanding is valid in its own right.

Next month, we’ll publish the impressions I had of making such an essence.  If we receive others’ notes, we will write about those, too.

Looking More Deeply into the Shasta Daisy

Editors’ Note: The below was originally written as the final assignment for The Five Healing Dimensions of Plants, an online course taught by Vibration editor, Dr. Deborah Bier. The class is appropriate for students of all levels, from beginners to professionals, as each student works to his or her own abilities.

I have always loved and appreciated daisies of all kinds. Their simple fresh faces are the typical ‘flowers’ that children draw when they depict flowers and happiness in their art!  Perhaps because the daisy looks like an earthly version of the SUN – which brings light – they usually have yellow centers, and the ray petals are just like rays of light!  Happy children will often create a light-filled drawing, a house [usually signifying security of the Self] with windows, a chimney with smoke [people are living there, and a nurturing parent is preparing food] and windows with colored curtains – access to the garden views.  Mom, Dad and siblings may also typically be part of this picture in the garden, and then there are the flowers – most often DAISIES, sprinkled liberally all over the garden, or in a neat straight line!!
