There are a few theories on how August got its name. The most popular one is that August is named to honor the Roman emperor Augustus, a man renowned for his leadership skills. August continues the energy of summer (at least at its start) with lots of art & music festivals, county fairs and high energy. But it also begins to show signs of autumn’s harvest theme. We become more aware that the sun light is slowly waning.
August accentuates community and connection through its gatherings. It is a time to enjoy the remaining warmth of the earth, celebrate the cycles and generally make yourself more aware of how you use your time. Fall is just around the corner and we can really feel the energy ramp up as parents, teachers and students of all ages begin to turn their focus to September. So use this time wisely. As I said in July’s blog, summer always seems to fly by so quickly. Remember to put yourself on the list and get in some time in nature and maybe some bodywork too like a massage or a reflexology/energy session at Rose Healing!
On Sunday July 30th I am offering a Sound Healing Meditation Circle with Crystal Singing Bowls. This event is SOLD OUT. But please mark your calendars for Sunday September 10th from 10 AM to 11:30 AM. $20 offering. Advance signup required by contacting firstname.lastname@example.org. I am planning to continue these on a regular basis.
The Oil of the Month is Purification
Purification Essential Oil blend has a fresh and clean aroma that is very uplifting. It is extensively used in my home in my diffusers in the kitchen, bathrooms, and basement to keep the air smelling clean and fresh. We love to add it to our laundry to keep our clothes smelling fresh without artificial chemicals. It is a perfect blend for neutralizing odors such as cigarette smoke, pet odors, mildew and mold. If you plan to have a party, this is a perfect blend to diffuse before, during and after! Purification energetically cleanses the room!
Purification essential oil is definitely one of top ten favorite essential oil blends and I will not leave home without it! Whenever I travel I make sure I have Thieves and Purification to cleanse any area I will be in – cars, trains, airplanes, hotel rooms etc.
Purification Essential Oil Blend™ Energetic Impacts:
On an energetic level diffusing Purification in a room will purify and cleanse negative emotions and vibrations. Spray some in an emotionally charged room or in your work space, especially if there is anger, violence or chaotic energy. This is fantastic oil for when we need support in seeing our patterning as it relates to abandonment, rejection, or the fear of being alone. It also can calm anger and conflict and bring back purity of thought and restore order. It opens the sacral chakra.
How to use: Purification Essential Oil Blend™
Use diluted - 50:50 dilution (one part essential oil: one part of vegetable oil). Then,
• Apply several drops (2-4) on feet, ears and temples
• Apply to chakras or on feet
• Directly inhale, or
• Diffuse or place on cotton balls and stash in closets, shoes, gym bags.
Our “Oracle Card of the Month”
I asked for guidance for all the friends and fans of Rose Healing Center for the month of August and was guided to Doreen Virtue’s Healing with the Angels Oracle Cards. This deck was the first Doreen Virtue deck I owned and still one of my favorites. The card we received is:
When you think about living a "balanced life," what thoughts and feelings come to you? What areas of your life need more time devoted to them, so that your personal needs are balanced with your other responsibilities?
Gaining balance is an ongoing process, born of each choice we make about how to spend our time. God gives us the strength and discernment so we need to make wise choices.
What is helpful: Pausing to pray and contemplate before saying yes to an activity.
What isn't helpful: Blaming others or feeling guilty, if your life is unbalanced.
Today and each day: Make the commitment to balance your daily schedule, to include time for what's important. This is a part of spiritual growth and self-care. It can help to set aside even 10 minutes in your morning to meditate and consider what is important.
Here's a helpful prayer: Dear God, Please clearly and strongly guide my choices and decisions, so that I spend my time and other resources on true priorities. Please give me the strength and self-control to say No to distractions.
