Our Readers Write: Dosage vs. Stock

Posted by admin on Dec 27, 2009

Editors’ Note: Vibration Magazine has always received interesting and thought provoking reader response.  This was true when we were an ezine, and it’s ten times more the case now that we’re in blog format!  In fact, of late so much of the real teaching and learning has been transpiring in our comments section, that we thought we’d introduce a new category of blog post: readers’ comments.

The way blogs work, early readers of a newly-posted article have no idea that a juicy discussion had unfolded after they finished the piece. And often readers don’t get around to looking at any comments even when they’re present — which means in Vibration’s case, you’re missing half the content! It’s like seeing just the first act of a two-act play. Yes, that act was fine, but what happened after intermission was even better!

The New Year 2010 Essence

Posted by admin on Dec 21, 2009

By Andrea Matheison, Raven Essences

Every year I make a new essence for the upcoming year, my intention being to connect with Nature and ‘capture’ the energetic impulse of the upcoming year. I’ve been making Annual Essences since 1998. Looking back over previous essences, I realize there were often prophetic elements that I could not have anticipated. These essences assist people to be conscious of what is emerging within the universe. Setting personal goals for the new year, while helping us to focus our intentions, can be short-sighted. The shifts into each new year invite us to be aware of what the universe is calling forth from within us. In a daily ritual of meditation with breath-work, using the essence allows for a deeply personal harmony between ourselves and the universal energies, the forces that intimately shape our personal and collective destiny.

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 (http://www.sparklinglotusink.com/). 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.

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.


Time and Flower Essences

By Andrea Mathieson, maker of Raven Essences

Editors’ Note: So many of our readers are wonderfully wise. This is one of many excellent comments received about “Rescue Remedy: A Faithful Friend in Crisis”. Read the original article and all the comments related to it here: http://www.floweressencemagazine.com/blog/?p=940

Your story touched on a very important and alchemical potentiality relative to flower essences, one that literally takes us into the realm of quantum physics. Lynn McTaggart, author of The Field and The Intention Experiment: Using your thoughts to change your life and the world, talks about a phenomenon called retro-intention where intentions in the future actually influence our present experience.
