Calming Animals Afraid of Fireworks

Posted by admin on Jun 26, 2010

My friend’s dog goes crazy during the July 4th US holiday with all of the fireworks.  I would guess everyone has a few shaking and howling friends in the neighborhood,  or kitty’s hiding under the bed or in the closet during this time.  Pets are such sensitive creatures and as much as we love them, most folks do not realize that they resonate with our fears as well as the fireworks noises on July 4th.

20436847.thbThere are several calming flower essence formulas that can help pets at this time.  I have found that they work best if you start them two or three weeks in advance of July 4th.  Just a few drops of tincture in their water dish or on their paws daily – will work wonders to reduce the fear factor.  One friend, after using a flower essence tincture in the weeks preceding  July 4th, said her dog went outside and acted like nothing was going on. Other clients say they find that their animals are still aware of the noises but are not shaking, howling or crying.

Healing the Earth’s Hot Spots–Putting Essences on a Map

Posted by admin on Jun 12, 2010

Editors’ Note: Foremost in many of our minds right now is the devastating oil spill on the Gulf of Mexico that shows no signs of slowing down. It brought to mind an article in Vibration by Robina Hearle first published in 2004.  We reprint it here in the hopes that our readers will join forces with the many who are praying for healing of the oceans in the wake of this event.  Here’s Robina’s idea:

In this world of greater understanding that all things are connected, the idea of sending healing, love and blessings is not so impossible. We have science backing up metaphysics, such as String Theory. Mathematics has always known that many energies exist, and Professor Stephen Hawking has proven interdimensionality.

My idea and ongoing project is to get as many people as possible putting bottles of flower essences on a map. In this way we can send healing vibrations to earthquakes, war zones, civil unrest, famines and disasters. This will facilitate healing of the planet and its peoples, flora and fauna. I have in my spare room three maps, upon which I have placed some of my own Rose Cottage Flower Essences. However, you can use any suitable bottle of essences you already own.

Making Yourself a Birthday Essence At the Solar Return

As Vibration Magazine celebrates its 12th birthday this month, and as we in the northern hemisphere head into primetime as far as flower essence making is concerned, I wanted to tell you about a very special and personal vibrational essence you can make yourself each year around your birthday.

21600366.thbThe moment of your astrological birthday, called the Solar Return, results in a special chart each year. This chart shows what special opportunities and challenges you will face between this birthday and next. Many people consult astrologers for an annual update around their birthday for precisely that reason.

Your astrological birthday is not always the same as your chronological birthday but may be a day before or after. This is true for the same reason we need a leap year every four years–the true year is 365.25 days, so there is a four-year cycle in Solar Returns as well. To be technical, this moment–which we rely on astrological software to find–occurs when the Sun returns to the same zodiacal degree, minute, and second it was at your birth.
