July derives its name from Julius Caesar who was born in July. This month is filled with the energy of summer and festivals, backyard parties, family, friends and lots of social interaction. Of course we also celebrate the Declaration of Independence on July 4th.
It is a beautiful time of the year where the speed of life seems to slow down just a bit. Really consider yourself in this equation of summer. It always goes so fast. Try to find time for self reflection and self-care as well as rest and relaxation this month. So often our society mistakes much needed leisure time for laziness but nothing could be further from the truth. We need rest, relaxation and fun!
Speaking of fun, this past month I was fortunate to attend the Sage Academy of Sound – Intensive Sound Healing Training at the Menla Retreat Center in the Catskills. This training deepened my existing sound healing practice considerably. I look forward to sharing this energy with my clients in both individual sessions and in new group gatherings. I am offering a Sound Healing Bath with Crystal Singing Bowls on Sunday July 30th from 10 AM to 11:30 AM. Advance sign up required as we are limited in our number of participants. $20 offering.
Our Oil of the Month is Joy
Joy Essential Oil is a beautiful blend of oils that brings love or joy to the heart. It is a deeply calming and inspires us to live with passion and joy. There are 10 different oils in the “Joy” oil blend: Ylang Ylang, Bergamot, Geranium, Lemon, Jasmine, Roman Chamomile, Rose, Mandarian Orage, Palmrosa, Coriander
Joy promotes the emotions of love, happiness and confidence. It helps us release emotional blocks of love, self-love and sharing love. It also helps us release grief and sorrow that is stored in the heart and lungs according to Traditional Chinese Medicine.
Joy can be used Use NEAT (undiluted) then,
· Apply several drops (2-4) to wrists, edge of ears, neck and feet

Joy is safe for use on Animals and came be helpful if you are dealing with an animal that is seems shut down emotionally or grieving.
Note about Animals: Certain oils can be very toxic to cats. Citrus products and oils in particular when not of therapeutic grade! Please consult your vet if you are not sure about applying any essential oil to your pet.
Our “Oracle Card of the Month”
I asked for guidance for all the friends and fans of Rose Healing Center for the month of July and was guided to Doreen Virtue’s Archangel Gabriel Deck. The card we received is:
LISTEN ONLY TO LOVE. The message: Focus on Love
There is a place where the news is always good, where there's harmony and peace amongst all people, and unconditional love and compassion toward you. And that place exists right here, right now, during your lifetime.
It's the place of prayerful communion with your Creator, where - instead of focusing upon the news, worries, drama, or grievances - you close your eyes, breathe, and pray from your heart. It's in that moment, that you've given your free-will permission for Heaven to help you. As you pray, you can feel the burdens being lifted. Your mind receives solutions instead of problems.
The lower energy loves to distract us with worries and anger . . . anything to pull us from our path. Lower energy also tries to divide and conquer people, by planting suspicions that create the illusion of separation. We can't afford to fall for these tactics!
Don't worry about anything, but pray about everything. God's infinite wisdom has the answer to every situation.
Here's a helpful prayer: Dear God, please detoxify my mind and heart, and reset me to love, pure love. Guide my actions to be helpful, from a place of love not fear or anger.
