Special Rose Healing Blog: Hurricane Harvey

Hurricane Harvey Disaster Response Options

Some of you who read my monthly blog asked about Hurricane Harvey and the Energy around this event.  First I want to make sure that everyone knows how to HELP.  So here are a few suggestions on what you can do to help those affected by Hurricane Harvey:

1.  DONATE Money – even $10 helps.

HarveyShelter.jpg

The Red Cross is actually on the ground in Texas doing the work now in over capacity shelters. In addition, a list of reputable organization to donate to is available through this New York Times article: https://www.nytimes.com/2017/08/28/us/donate-harvey-charities-scams.html

2.  DONATE Blood – Locally. 

http://www.redcrossblood.org/donating-blood

3. Send Prayers and Heart Waves

If you cannot afford to donate money or give blood or in addition to doing those things, please PRAY.  Please see my friend and fellow Energy Medicine practitioner Dina Kennedy’s blog piece on “Sending Heart Waves to Texas” for a unique approach. 


Here is what is NOT HELPFUL from a Donation perspective:   

Over the next few days, weeks and months there will be thoughts of sending supplies, food, clothing or God forbid – stuffed animals.   Unless this effort is closely coordinated with a major organization like the Red Cross it just makes matters worse.  See link below for proof: https://www.cbsnews.com/news/when-disaster-relief-brings-anything-but-relief/


Thoughts on the Energy Surrounding Hurricane Harvey.

HarveyREscue.jpg

As a heart-centered practitioner of energy medicine it is extremely difficult to continue to watch the devastation that has unfolded and will continue to unfold in Texas from Hurricane Harvey.  We see great stories of triumph, heroism and resiliency.  Exhausted first responders and volunteers, many of whom lost their own homes to flooding, out there helping their neighbors whether they know them or not.  A Houston police officer gave his life trying to save others.  This is an example the best of America. 

But there are also judgments and negative energy spewing about mostly on Social Media. The poster child on this might be the University of Tampa Professor of Sociology (now fired) who claimed Harvey is karmic payback to Texas. This is an example of the worst of America.   But thankfully there are many less of these stories than positive ones.  Maybe this is a lesson about how we put our own energy out into the world. WORDS MATTER. THOUGHTS MATTER. It is all Energy. Be a responsible citizen. Be aware of this especially on Facebook, Twitter etc. It is incredibly ironic and disturbing that this person was a professor of Sociology.  

Other examples of spewing include people both on TV and in social media who question the survivors. Why didn’t they evacuate?  Who’s to Blame?  Etc .etc. Perhaps Brene Brown – a famous author and a resident of Houston said it best on her post “Thank you for not judging. We were advised to stay here - we weren't reckless. Judgment and scolding about not evacuating are the opposite of empathy and helpful. It's painful.  It's also how people make themselves feel better when terrible things happen. They tell themselves: "I would have done something different. That will never be me."  I pray to God you're right - I hope you never watch your elderly neighbor stand waist-high in water and sob as their house gets destroyed. I hope this never happens to you. But if it does, I hope people don't lead with judgment. And a huge thank for not diminishing the request for prayer and thoughts. I'm a very involved citizen and I don't believe prayer and civil action are mutually exclusive. You don't have to denigrate one to support the other.”

PrayersTexas.jpg

Brene’s post reminded me that we all are responsible for our thoughts as we sit on our couches and watch the horror on TV.  Remember to try and stay positive within your own energy – even if it is incredibly difficult to do so. Send LOVE.

There is an opinion piece in the NY Times today on how “Houston was Warned” from an environmental perspective about the possibility of a devastating Hurricane coming someday.  In my other life, I spend a good amount of my time focusing on issues of land use planning, zoning, environmental protection, community organization  and emergency response.  So these are issues near and dear to my heart. The appropriate time for discussing the issues of over-development, zoning and inadequate storm surge planning will certainly come – as it did for all us in the Northeast who dealt with Hurricane Sandy.  But for now we have an actual disaster of EPIC proportions unfolding before our eyes and we need to find ways to HELP and NOT JUDGE.

FloodedRivers.png

Hurricane Harvey is the most devastating storm the U.S. has ever experienced.  In weather/flooding terms it is called a 500 year storm. As you already know there are parts of Houston (the 4th largest city in the U.S.) that have received over 52 inches of rain! Perhaps no amount of informed environment planning could prevent 52 inches of rain in one area from flooding a good portion of that place.

To give you some perspective, the area which is now submerged has reached 15 times the size of Manhattan. There are some incredibly detailed and impressive maps available through the NY Times and being continuously updated.  NYT Interactive Map Hurricane Harvey

It is clear that the breadth and scope of the impact of Hurricane Harvey will eclipse every other storm – including Katrina.  The disaster and the relief needed will be ongoing for weeks, months and even years.  Maybe we can find a way as a Nation to heal our perceived divisions (race, religion, political party, sexual identification/orientation) by instead actually focusing on the immediate issue of helping our fellow humans in a time of need.  Sending prayers and heart waves of love and strength together from every corner of our country is a good place to start.

GOD BLESS TEXAS and GOD BLESS AMERICA.

September 2017 Rose Healing News and Oil/Card of the Month

Dreams, Intuition and the Inner life. 

September gets its name from the Latin word septum meaning seven because it was originally the 7th month in the old calendar system.  While the early portion of the month continues to have a summery feeling, we already can sense (at least here in the Northeast) an early Fall coming.  As we give up the last energy of summer and move towards the return the school, harvest celebrations and really move into the autumn energy, take time to check in on where you are at.  What were the gifts of summer this year? What did you wish you had done?  Or what do you wish you had done more of?  Now is the time to write in your calendar for next spring some reminders.  

CedarwoodTree.jpeg

September is a pivotal month during which the outward-directed energy of summer begins to shift inward in preparation for the 6 months to be spent in the darkness of Mother Earth’s womb. This is a month to open our eyes to synchronicities,dreams and our intuition.  It is a time for listening for our inner spiritual guidance.

SingingBowls.jpg

To that end, I am offering another Sound Healing Meditation Circle with Crystal Singing Bowls on Sunday September 10th from 10 AM to 11:30 AM.  Advance sign up required as we are limited in our number of participants. $20.  Contact me ASAP if you are interested.  Of course, I am also available for individual healings which include a customized blend of Reflexology, Craniosacral and Sound Healing. 

As we come out of the major celestial energies of Mercury Retrograde and the Eclipse, September offers us a month filled with possibility for that which we want to manifest in our lives. It is a highly creative time for new ideas.  We are still integrating new energies and new alignments from August. The best thing you can do is to honor anything NEW. A good practice is to do or experience something new every day consciously. Whether it is a change in your routine or a new food or a new route to work. Be brave. Choose something new every day as a way to acknowledge change. 
 

Our Oil of the Month is  Cedarwood

Cedarwood Essential Oil has an earthy aroma that is soothing and grounding. It is a well documented oil that is mentioned over 40 times in the Bible. It can help stimulate the limbic system of the brain which assists in elevatingour mood and helps us relax (overcome stress). This explains why Cedarwood can give you a feeling of being connected, comforted, grounded and focused. It calms the spirit, eases nervous tension and stress. The oil gets is name from “Cedrus” which is an Arabic word meaning “power”

Cedarwood Essential Oil Energetic Impacts:

On an energetic level Cedarwood oil helps you embrace the feeling of being totally safe and secure with yourself as well as in your environment. As fears are released, the heart is open to spiritual love and protection which also brings self acceptance and love. It is excellent oil for the heart chakra.

How to use: Cedarwood Essential Oil:

CedarwoodOil.jpg

Use Neat/Straight Un-diluted. Then,

• Apply several drops (2-4) on feet, ears and temples

• Apply to chakras or on feet

• Directly inhale, or

• Diffuse 


Our  “Oracle Card of the Month”

I asked for guidance for all the friends and fans of Rose Healing Center for the month of September and was guided to Doreen Virtue’s Archangel Raphael cards.  The card we received is:

Ask Your Body for a Message

AskBodyforMessageRaphaelSept2017.jpg

Today you are being asked to tune into and access your inner body wisdom. Instead of taking cues from outside sources, Archangel Raphael asks you to seek and follow guidance from your own body, which holds within it all that you need to know. Throughout your day, check in with your body to see how it feels, and notice what it needs and what it is asking you for.

Here are a few methods you might consider:

During meditation, scan your body from the bottoms of your feet to the top of the head, noting where there is tension or discomfort. Breathe into those areas. Ask your body what it would like you to know and allow time to listen for the response.

Taking an Epson salt bath is a wonderful way to quiet the mind which makes your body wisdom more accessible. While you are in the bath ask yourself, “Body, what would you have me know,” or “Where do I need to devote attention to you,” and be open to notice the response that you get.

Yoga is another great way to connect into your body wisdom to access the things that your body would like you to know. You can communicate with your body throughout the duration of your practice, ask your body what it wants you to know during your Shavasana, or check in with your body after your practice is complete.

Your body speaks to you through thoughts, emotions, feelings, aches/pains, tingles and sensations like warmth, heat, or coolness. Your body always knows exactly what it needs and is counting on you to come through for it when it asks for something. Your body may be telling you something simple such as a need to drink more water, or a request to be fueled with more nutritious foods. Or you may find your body has more profound guidance for you. Whatever the case, you can always call upon Archangel Raphael to help you better connect into the needs of your body, or to better understand the guidance you receive. Archangel Raphael is a powerful healer who will lovingly guide you towards healing your body and improving your health.

Special Blog: Eclipse August 2017 Energy

The information I share here is at the request of several of my clients who have asked me to provide insight around the energy of the Eclipse. This information below comes from a variety of sources including those referenced at the end of this post and others, as well as my own interpretation from an intuitive perspective.  I hope it is helpful.

So when is the Eclipse exactly?

The Solar Eclipse arrives on Monday August 21, 2017 between 1:23 PM and 4:00 PM.  The peak (70% effaced for New York State - Hudson Valley region) will be between 2:42 and 2:45 PM.  Please make sure you wear proper eye protection. See NASA link below for more info.

What is the energy around this Eclipse?

The main theme around this Eclipse is RE-EVALUATION/RESET.  This is a major time for re-evaluating what in your life is not working for you and CHANGE it.  It is a time for dealing with hard truths.  The recent events in Virginia and in Barcelona show that it is a time for hard truths on a national and global scale as well.  

The entire month of August has the energy of letting go – of old outdated stuff - things, furniture, clothes, relationships, thoughts, ideas.  Really whatever no longer serves us is coming up to be released now.   This will be a challenging process.  Sometimes old outdated thoughts and ideas do not leave quietly.  On a more personal level you most likely know the experience of standing in your closet holding that blouse or pair of pants with the “someday I might wear it” thought.  No you won’t.  If you haven’t worn it in a year – let it go. If you choose to let it go – it  allows space for something new (and better) to enter. This is a metaphor for much larger “letting go” which allows us to move forward and experience life in a new way.

A RESET is a time of allowing that which has gone before is gone. Done. Finito.  We must move on and look to the future with INTENTION and THOUGHTFULNESS. This will require setting aside time (by unplugging from the TV, computer, social media, cell phone, children, day to day responsibilities etc) to dialogue with yourself exactly what it is you want to change in your life.  We can only do this through quiet interaction with ourselves and our divinity. Please use the time between now and Monday 8/21 at 2:45 PM to create this space for your sacred voice to speak to you.  It doesn’t have to be elaborate or for that matter even all that long. But it does have to be done.

You will not hear your inner voice speak to you through a cacophony of negative news streams, social media, Facebook, etc. Create sacred space in whatever way that means for you – a walk in the woods, being near water, sitting quietly in meditation. Anything that allows you to deeply listen.

Next in the theme is TRUST.  We must learn to trust that as this Eclipse transitions us to the next phase of being.  That the change we seek is for the highest good of ourselves, our Country and the planet. Trust your inner knowing more than your ego.  Trust that change will bring good things and that all will be well in the end.

Finally an Eclipse is an event that reminds us of the passage of time, of seasonal changes and that cycles are a part of life here on Planet Earth.  The bottom line is it is a unique time to re-create who you are and what you want to manifest.  It will take work, commitment and a willingness to change but the Eclipse energy can help.  Use it.

Working with the Eclipse on 8/21/17:

Take a moment on or about the time of the Eclipse 8/21/17 at 2:45 PM and be reminded that the absence of the Sun as it is eclipsed from the Earth is a true “dropping into the void”.  It  symbolizes the absence of what has been feeding old patterns and beliefs these past years and maybe your whole lifetime. This is true on a personal level but also on a much larger scale. 

As the eclipse recedes and the sun comes back, imagine that it is feeding, nourishing and energizing a new you, one that has been reset to a new vibration, a new consciousness, a new frequency.  Visualize that it is also resetting our Country and our Planet to a new vibration, a new consciousness, a new frequency.

Now that is some powerful stuff!

In Love and Light. Rosemary

August 2017 Rose Healing News

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 rosehealing@optonline.net. 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:

BALANCE

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.

July 2017 Rose Healing News

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  “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.

June 2017 Rose Healing News

your essential Oil and Oracle Card of the Month

June derives its name for the Roman word “Juno” and it has long been the traditional month for weddings.  So June’s theme is relationship - with one’s self, with others and with nature.  June is the month when most flowers really shine.  So get outdoors and enjoy them!  It is a time of year that is filled with celebrations – graduations, weddings, Father’s Day, etc. 

But in all that celebration we need to remember self care too.   So how can we celebrate ourselves?  Think about allowing more self care during this beautiful time of the year.  Here are some brief ideas on how to incorporate “self-care” in the next month.

Ø     Practice a mindfulness exercise, even if it’s just deep breathing.

Ø     Find a place in nature to enjoy.

Ø     Go to bed early and make sure you get at least a full 8 hours of sleep.

Ø     Write down ten things in your life that inspire gratitude.

Ø     Schedule an appointment for intuitive body work  – like Reflexology, Craniosacral Balancing or Reiki. Hmmm… Maybe at Rose Healing Center. ;-)

June always reminds me of my grandmother’s back yard planters filled with big red geraniums. That memory inspired my choice for our oil of the month.

June Oil of the Month Geranium

Geranium oil has a floral rose-like aroma and is steam distilled from the plants fragrant flowers and leaves and this and has been used for centuries to support beautiful healthy skin. Geranium oil calms and relaxing the body and mind and is used traditionally to support the circulatory and nervous systems, a great deal of its strength lies in its ability to revitalize body tissues. In my practice at Rose Healing Center, I find geranium particularly helpful with the release of negative emotions and memories.  It assists those who are grieving a loss and helps to diminish fears of abandonment.  Blends of Young Living Essential Oils that contain geranium including “Envision” and “White Angelica”.   Geranium Oil Uses:

Diffuse it to give a relaxing floral scent to the air.

Add a few drops to a warm bath

Dab on your wrists and back of neck.

Directly inhale.


Several of you have asked me to bring back the “Oracle Card of the Month” to my newsletter so here we go. I asked for guidance for all the friends and fans of Rose Healing Center for the month of June and was guided to Doreen Virtue’s Archangel Raphael Desk and the card we received is:  “HOME HELP”

Spring is a very busy time of year inside and out.  Many of us can become overwhelmed with all that needs to be done in the garden, in the yard, in the house.  So, do you ask for help? Do you accept it when it is offered to you? 

Doreen Virtue (the creator of the Oracle Cards) says that asking for help, and allowing yourself to be helped, is essential to our health and happiness. Whether it's asking your family to help with yardwork or housework; asking a friend for their sympathetic ear; or delegating an assignment at work, we all need to reach out to others. 

Perhaps you feel guilty asking others for help, yet think of it this way: you are giving them an opportunity to feel needed. Your children develop a good work ethic as they learn to complete chores. And if you hire someone to help you, you're providing a livelihood. 

Perhaps you assume that people will say no to your requests for help. Having this assumption can be self-fulfilling. And in the case of children, they need to learn how to work and how to handle authority. Part of parenting is being a teacher of life skills to our children.    Certainly children learn from watching you – do they see someone who exhausts themselves every day or has a balanced approach to work and rest?  


This June at Rose Healing we are welcoming back Betty Sue Hanson to teach Reiki Level 1.     Please Save the Date – Sunday August 20, 2017 Align With Your Higher Self- A Channeled Guidance Session with Mary Ellen O'Brien. 

Please feel free to leave a comment.  Wishing you all a wonderful June.

April 2017 Rose Healing News

April Showers Bring May Flowers. That seems to be the perfect sentence for the energy surrounding April.  Ups and Downs. Erratic. Cold one day, warm the next.  The best thing to do with with erratic energy is to commit to slow and steady progress in our goals and be patient and understanding.  

April is also a time when we are being guided to speak our truth in relationship with others. "Others" could be spouse, friend, boss, sibling.   If we do not, the Universe will continue to highlight where we have failed to stay out of negative thinking and behaviors.  

The full moon is April 10th. The new moon in April 26th. 

This month's Oil is Frankincense

Frankincense is one of the oldest essential oils and is known as the “holy anointing oil”.  In the Middle East, frankincense has been used in religious ceremonies for thousands of years. It was was one of the gifts given to Christ at his birth. 

Today, frankincense is still used worldwide for both its ceremonial and dietary uses. Frankincense can be used topically or diffused to enhance spirituality and meditation, or for uplifting attitude and mood-enhancement. As a supplement, Frankincense Vitality delivers support for overall wellness and normal cellular health, and has a complex, sweet flavor.

PRIMARY BENEFITS

·  Promotes spiritual awareness and enhances meditation, tonic for the body and mind.

·   Comforting, support mental balance

·         Excellent support for skin health

·         Stimulating and elevating aroma

If you are interested in purchasing Young Living pure essential oils, please contact me. (914) 365-8788 or rosehealing@optonline.net

Wishing you all a very Happy Spring, Happy Easter, Happy Passover.  Thank you for allowing me to accompany you on this adventure called life.

March 2017 News from Rose Healing

March arrives with the energy of action and change and the promise of spring even if the weather is still winter-like at times.  We can see the evidence in the flowers pushing up through the snow.  

Change always brings about the potential for a new experience, a reset, something different and wonderful.  But we have to do our part too. There is the action part.  So think about how you can work with this theme. Choose something in your life that needs to change and work on changing it.  Just pick one thing. Don't try to change everything. Perhaps the age old "Spring Cleaning" is what is needed.  Consider spending some time cleaning the clutter from your home and your head. When we let go of the old, we invite the new to arrive. This is not just on a physical level but on all levels.  

To assist you with this, we have several offerings this month with our advanced practitioners including Reiki Level II training with Betty Sue Hanson, Highest Self Soul Guidance with Mary Ellen O'Brien and Reflexology, Aromatherapy and Vibrational healing offerings. If you are on our direct email list, you will receive notice of this. Self-care is highly recommended at this time and we are here to help. 

So it is with that background that I set intention and asked the Angels to help me be guided to choose the Young Living oil and Doreen Virtue oracle card for the highest good of my friends and clients of Rose Healing. 

OUR CARD FOR MARCH is "Law of Attraction" 

From the Angel Therapy Oracle Card Deck, by Doreen Virtue, Ph.D:

“This card signals that you are experiencing shifts because of your spiritual path. The universal Law of Attraction says that like attracts like. So you are attracted to people and situations that have similar intentions to your own. For example, if your intentions are to be loving and to see the Divine within everyone, you will attract loving people and situations. You will also repel people who have unloving focuses.

This is why you may find your relationships and tastes changing. You may avoid old friends who no longer fascinate you, or perhaps you now dread going to a job or club that you previously enjoyed. Know that these experiences and feelings are a normal part of the spiritual path; you are attracting wonderful, new relationships, situations, and jobs that mirror your spiritual focus. Give any cares, questions, concerns, guilt, and so forth to the angels for healing and transmutation.

Our Young Living Oil for March is Lavender

Lavender can be considered another "master oil" in my mind.  Like Thieves from a few months ago, it can do so very many things. If I could choose only two oils it would be Thieves and Lavender. But I have to admit with all the incredible oils that Young Living offers it is hard to just choose two! So we will be covering many other oils in the months ahead. Lavender oil links to our theme of change and action in that it brings a calming influence so necessary when dealing with these times.  

The following is just a few of the list of approved uses for Lavender

  • Calming
  • Sleep Aid
  • Bee Stings, insect bites
  • Burns & Cuts
  • Eczema/Dermatitis
  • Motion Sickness
  • Nosebleed
  • Dry/Chapped Skin
  • Chapped sunburned lips
  • Scar Tissue
  • Deodorant
  • Dandruff
  • Moths and insects

February 2017 News from Rose Healing

Hello Friends of Rose Healing.

February is the shortest month of the year but somehow, especially in the Northeast  - it can feel long. During this time we must remember that there are seeds below the ground just waiting to sprout in Spring.  Think about the seeds we are planting for the Spring in our lives. Of course February is also St. Valentine's day and all that is connected with that.  I cannot believe a year has passed since I wrote my first ever blog piece for our book 365 Days of Angel Prayers which happened to be about Valentine's day. For those who may wish to read it, it is available here:  

The intention I set before choosing the oil and oracle card for all of us was what concepts, ideas, dreams do we wish to manifest in 2017? As we are doing each month, I have asked the Angels to please bring me a clear and concise message for my clients and friends using both the Oracle Cards and the Young Living Oils. I asked for a card for the highest intention of all and was guided to choose from the Magical Mermaid and Dolphin deck of Doreen Virtue. 

OUR CARD FOR FEBRUARY IS "Watch Your Thoughts" 

This cards certainly seems timely to me.  We all need to be reminded that thoughts manifest into form.  Realizing that the past few weeks and months have been incredibly difficult on so many levels.  Become aware of when fear is really invading your life.  Question your thoughts "is that really true?"    Catch yourself when you slip into negativity and say "cancel that".   Switch your thoughts to the positive because thoughts become things.  During this month when many may feel they have no control over certain situations, be reminded that you always have control over your thoughts - if you have awareness around it.  And remember our card from January - Meditate.  Always a good choice when we are feeling overwhelmed. 

Our Young Living Oil for February is Rosemary 

Ha! I laughed when I saw the oil that came through for February. First of all it is my name. But more importantly when you read on you will see why it is so incredibly timely and connected to our oracle card and the general energy of the month. 

Rosemary is the oil of transition and knowledge - two things we are certainly grappling with right now as a Nation, and as individuals. Rosemary oil helps with difficulty adjusting or transitioning. It supports one feeling confident through times of great change and helps us gain understanding and perspective.  Well, that certainly resonates for me and I hope it does for you too. 

The following is just a few of the list of approved uses (by the FDA) for Rosemary Essential Oil. 

  • Supports healthy respiratory function
  • Supports healthy digestion
  • Reduces nervous tension
  • Memory booster - excellent while studying.

Use by diffusing, inhaling or adding to bath.

January News from Rose Healing

Happy New Year!  We are excited to welcome 2017 at Rose Healing Center with new and ongoing offerings from our amazing practitioners including Betty Sue Hanson, Rocio LaRosa, Mary Ellen O'Brien and myself - Rosemary Boyle Lasher.

I have asked the Angels to please bring me a clear and concise message for my clients and friends using both the Oracle Cards and the Young Living Oils. I asked for a card for the highest intention of all for the month of January and was guided to choose from the Ascended Masters deck of Doreen Virtue. 

Our card for January is "Meditate" 

Meditate ~ Siddhartha Gautama Buddha, Card Meaning: “This card is a call for you to meditate regularly. Your path, body and soul are asking for quiet time to reflect, think and receive insights. Even a small amount of time devoted to daily meditation will bring you great gifts. You do not necessarily need any formal training in meditation. It is simply a matter of sitting quietly, closing your eyes, breathing, and listening.

Additional Meanings For This Card: Be still and listen. You need some alone time. Be honest with yourself. Join a meditation group or take a meditation class or listen to a meditation CD.

Siddharta Guatama devoted his life to finding an end to suffering. He renounced his family’s wealth and tried several spiritual paths, including asceticism, in his quest for spiritual growth. He finally had insight that moderation (or the “middle way”) was the path to enlightenment. He also demonstrated the benefits and importance of meditation, and many of his insights occurred as he meditated beneath the Bodhi tree. Call upon Siddhartha Guatama for help in developing your meditation practice, to practice moderation, and to overcome any form of suffering.


Our Essential Oil for January is "Thieves" 

Distributor ID 1249637

Distributor ID 1249637

Thieves® essential oil is a combination of Clove, Lemon, Cinnamon, Eucalyptus and Rosemary for an aromatic blend that fills any space with a rich, spicy aroma that is uplifting and energizing.  Inspired by the legend of four 15th-century French thieves who formulated a special aromatic combination used while robbing the dead and dying.

Thieves is probably my #1 favorite oil.  If you told me I could only choose one (which in Young Living's offerings of oils, it would be hard to choose just one), I would have to choose Thieves.  

Thieves Essential Oil promotes a healthy immune system; balances solar plexus, purifies air and laundry,and makes a great household cleaner.   When Thieves is diffused in a room it purifies and cleanses negative emotions and vibrations very quickly.  It is a great oil to carry with you when travelling. Make sure you keep it handy when you are going on a plane or train or if you are going on a road trip with a pack of kids in the car!

I look forward to 2017 and supporting you in your journey to wellness. Thank you for allowing me to accompany you on this adventure called life.

December News from Rose Healing

As we move into the Winter of 2016-2017 I am reminded that it is a time to go within, to get curious about what is going on in our body and mind, and spirit.  As the days shorten and darkness continues to increase many of us face challenges with sadness and depression.  However, we are also reminded that December is a month when we celebrate the return of the light (12/21 - Winter Solstice), (12/24 Hanukkah), and (12/25 Christmas) to name just a few celebrations. 


Each month we will release a blog highlighting a different Young Living Essential Oil and a different card from one of the many Oracle cards out there. I will be asking the Angels to bring me a message for my clients and friends of Rose Healing. Today, I was guided to choose from the Archangel Michael Oracle Cards by Doreen Virtue. The card we received was "Pay Attention to Your Dreams".  This message can come up frequently but it is especially timely in the winter months.  

So are you listening to what your inner consciousness has to tell you? Often times we are being spoken to in our dreams. Keep a dream journal (a simple pen/pencil and paper will do) by your bed to jot down the images/words that come to you in your dream state.  You maybe amazed by what you can learn. 


At Rose Healing we use only Young Living Pure Essential Oils.  Each month we will highlight a different essential oil.  

Our oil of the month for December is Idaho Blue Spruce

Idaho Blue Spruce is an oil which is timely for December. It is physically grounding and relaxing, has a woody/evergreen scent that is refreshing yet calming.  This oil can be used to provide a feeling of deep peace and security. The Native Americans used Blue Spruce for spiritual and practical reasons. It was placed in baths to ease muscle discomfort after exercise. You can diffuse, inhale, or add to your bath. If you are interested in learning more about purchasing therapeutic grade essential oils, please contact us or click on the links above. Be sure to enter distributor ID#1249637 if you purchase directly.

For those who may not know an "essential oil" is oil that is extraced through careful steam distillation, resin tapping and cold pressing. The purest essential oils are far more powerful than the botanicals from which they come.   


Finally, I want to thank all of the clients of Rose Healing, whether we worked individually together, in a group setting or with one of our amazing practitioners like Betty Sue Hanson, Rocio LaRosa or Mary Ellen O'Brien, thank you!  We look forward to 2017 and supporting you in your to wellness.
