Oprah’s speech to the Golden Globe awards powerfully voices the energy entering the planet that will no longer be held back. This is the Shift to the Divine Feminine that we have all been working towards and riding for years, on a wing and a prayer, is NOW manifesting into reality.

At last we see the cosmic intelligence behind Trump becoming President: he represents the worst expression of the toxic Divine Masculine. And through his bumbling narcissism, misogyny, raw greed and sexist outlook he has infected world consciousness with a pathogen that needs to be healed. AND the world recognises the need for healing and change, in plumbing the depths of the effects of his disordered thinking. We can hold in our hearts a prayer of gratitude to him for throwing up to world consciousness that which we do NOT want to see in a world leader, so that we can better see what we do want. And it is certainly not greed, denial, ‘wealth is power’, demeaning and self-serving utterances from a man with a mental and spiritual deficit.

We are, as a collective consciousness, now better able to see what values and dignified bearing we would like to see portrayed by our leaders so they lead us into a future, where human, animal, plant and mineral kingdoms are valued and employed with loving intention to share and conserve this beautiful planet for generations of life to come.

Let’s explore a little. Divine Masculine values, when perfectly balanced, manifest as hierarchical systems based on rationality. They foster exploration, absolute and directive rule the gaining of prestige and continual growth upwards and outwards. Such values were totally appropriate in a world seeking its own self-identity, conquering the unknown and expanding into fullness.

However, thanks to communication, technological and scientific advancements our world now has begun to shrink. We know nearly every square millimetre of the planet and have even mapped the heavens to a phenomenal degree. People in all walks of life and locations are informed and becoming more conscious through the benefit of knowledge. Hierarchical institutions that flourished under the ascendant Divine Masculine, including authoritarian political structures, the Churches and big corporations are being asked to come to account so that they function on a more level playing field where the common good is part of the vision for the future.

The values of the Divine Feminine are polar opposite to the above. The energy is ground-up rather than top-down, and the overarching values are connection, support, peace and the common good. The Divine Feminine is heart-centred rather than head-directed. So what we ‘feel’ is equally as important as what we think. For example, in formulating public health policy according to these values, rather than imposing an unfamiliar and scary health program on indigenous people unfamiliar with Western medical strategies, there may be a consultative process with the locals to find nodal points where traditional medicine can dovetail with western medical processes in an easy, effective and non-confronting way. The WHO has been recommending this approach since the Ottawa Charter way back in 1986, but many countries still have a top-down medial system that feeds on greed and profit for Big Pharma and undervalues grassroots input.

In a political sense, there is a North American Indian tribe that has had it right for a long time now. Under their system of tribal governance, both men and women are invited to sit in Council and contribute ideas and suggestions for the well-being of the tribe, but it is only women who are allowed to vote on the proposals. The justification for this law is that only women have the ability to recognise what impact today’s decision will have on the next seven generations of children. Powerful stuff, eh? A good question to ask today is, how many women do we have in the Legislative Assembly here in Australia, or in Trump’s inner circle? Or represented in top banking or corporate roles?

Now, I am not suggesting a world where women rule, but rather where the underlying energy of the Divine Feminine, that is biologically inscribed in women, but which men can also access through conscious choices, begins to get a look in. The Divine Feminine polarity (one of the two that underpin all of creation – the other is of course the Divine Masculine) has a value set that is inclusive, unlike that of the Divine Masculine that values singularity. Hence, in a balanced world, where the two polarities are being equally expressed, power-sharing is the norm and collective power is the most highly valued.

So our new world values choices from the heart, rather than just the head and we, at last, can allow our emotions to resurface and to be in delicate yet reciprocal harness with our rational self.

Just imagine if Oprah becomes President – she, a champion of the heart, intelligent way-shower and black woman!

We might see peace (real peace) on the table and the shrinking of the influence of big world powers such as Big Pharma, the munitions industry, corporate money-suckers and the automatic ownership of sexual entitlement. What if the world began to conserve resources, rather than expend, use the gifts that the planet offers, such as sustainability, natural intelligence and to value people as souls rather than capital?

If we continue to imagine it then perhaps the whispers for Oprah to be President will become roars, as the infectious energy of the Divine Feminine seeps into every corner of the planet to harmonises the existing imbalance, and we will see our vision manifest.

To learn more about the Divine Feminine and how you can call this softness into your life for healing and balance, I am conducting a workshop on March 24th and 25th In Mt Nebo, Brisbane. It promises to change your life. To find out more, click here

Desire – The Greatest Classical Music for Lovers – cover art

 

I don’t know who originally wrote this fantastic blog post, but I had to pass it on. Please let me know if you identify it as yours – it is brilliant information for a woman. Thank you……..

It echoes exactly what I wrote in my book The Essence of Woman about women taking on their sexual partner(s)’s energy through sexual exchange and subsequently possibly carrying it forever.

Please read on:

‘Scientists have discovered that a sizeable minority of women have Y-chromosome gene sequences in their blood. This is interesting because as you may know, Y-chromosomes are the chromosomes that belong to men, so ladies, what are they doing there, and where did they come from?

An obvious answer would be from pregnancy with a male son, every woman who has been pregnant still carries cells from her fetus within her bloodstream. Cells from the pregnancy will reside within the mother’s bloodstream and organs for the rest of her life. Even if the pregnancy was terminated or if there was a miscarriage these said genes would remain with the Mother. There is a name for this so-called condition, it is called microchimerism (1), which is named after the Greek chimera, a mythical, monstrous fire-breathing animal that is composed of the parts of three animals a lion, a snake and a goat. Okay so that explains it, well at least it does for the women who have given birth to sons. But what about the women without sons that still had male cells in their bloodstream?

The Study

This called for a study (2) that was done by immunologists at the Fred Hutchinson Caner Center in 2004.  In this study they took samples from 120 women who had never had sons. They found that 21% of these women had male DNA. The women were then categorized into 4 groups according to pregnancy history: Group A had only daughters, Group B had had one or more miscarriage(s), Group C had induced abortions and Group D had never been pregnant before. The prevalence of male michrochimerism was considerably greater in Group C although it was still present in each group. Group A 8%, Group B 22%, Group C 57% and Group D 10%.

The conclusions of this study noted that the possible sources of male michrochimerism included, known pregnancies, miscarriages, vanished male twin, or sexual intercourse. This means, that through intercourse alone there is a potential for women to hold onto male genes and DNA within their organs and blood stream for their entire life!

I find this extremely fascinating because a spiritual friend and mentor once told me that every time you sleep with somebody you are taking on a part of them within you. I thought of this as a powerful metaphor, that we were keeping a part of them energetically. Needless to say, it made me reflect on certain things from my past and this whole analogy really made a lot of sense. But, to learn that there is actual scientific proof to back this up and that it is a physical thing, that is more than just energy. The idea that as women we are capable of taking on actual physical DNA from the men that we sleep with, was an extremely eye opening piece of information to stumble across.

This science puts a whole new meaning on sexual intercourse as a whole. It is a very sacred and spiritual act and should be completely regarded as such. A lot of people are misusing sex and have forgotten what it is meant for and how important and consecrated it really is. I know I can speak for many women because as a woman I know what this is like and have had experiences in the past with giving away sex somewhat freely because of insecurity or to please or impress a man without actually even realizing how irresponsible this was. Because at the time, it was just sex, and when you are completely disconnected from yourself, it doesn’t seem like it’s a big deal. Now being older and more connected to my spiritual self I realize that sex is not something that is meant to be thrown around and given out so freely, it is a sacred act that creates a bond between two people that love and care about each other. It is so important for us (humanity) to realize this. There is a lot of power and amazing potential within this act and it has the complete capability of connecting us with our true selves.

Many of us are holding onto a lot of sexual baggage from our past, it is not my intent to make anyone regret past experiences. Rather, to let go and embrace what the past has taught us and move forward with this knowledge and consider it wisely. With this information I’m sure you will think twice about whom you are ending up in bed with, and at the very least, I’m positive that you’ll be sure to use a condom!

Much Love

Reflections on Divine FeminineCyclone Marcia has just been and gone here in South-East Queensland as I write this post…..there has been water, water, water everywhere, accompanied by highly destructive winds in areas closer to the tirade.

This is the vengeful Divine Feminine whose fury knows no bounds and whose response to the wanton recklessness of humankind’s arrogance has bought humanity to the brink, and Gaia, embodiment of the Divine Feminine, to the end of her tether.

From 2012 onwards the scales have tipped and we are heading fast and furiously towards transformational change, that could end anywhere for humanity. Brought about by the catastrophic effects of climate change and humanity’s arrogance and lack of consciousness to conserve, support and husband the planet rather than raping, plundering and intoxicating her, this is evolution on the march and our planetary home will never be the same again.

As human beings, we will be forced to our knees more regularly and more savagely by climatic catastrophes, the toxic and brutal effects of a war-mongering tribal outlook and a plundering of Her resources to harness outdated energy sources, until we learn the lesson of taking her for granted and possessing her rather than consciously co-creating with her.

Scientific discoveries made half way through last century in the 1950’s and ‘60’s revealed a remarkable synchronicity: that the electro-magnetic pulse of the planet, The Schumann wave, brought about by the inter-relationship between the globe itself and the outer reaches of her ionosphere (triggered by lightning strikes), measures 7.8 hz* and is identical to the 7.8 hz alpha rhythm frequencies of the human brain. In other words, in our healthy state the human life pulse is in perfect synchronicity with the life pulse of the planet!

images

What does this tell us about the relationship between humans and the planet? Certainly that we are attuned to one another’s consciousness and vibrating to the same life pulse. And that both the planet and humanity are inter-dependent and engaged in a reciprocal partnership through a process of co-creation, both evolving in and around one another. The fantastic notion of ‘riding Mother Nature’s silver seed to a new home in the sun’ as expressed by Neil Young’s 1960’s song ‘After the Goldrush’ describes humanity sending out an exploratory space craft to seek another home in the wake of devastation and destruction of Planet Earth. In reality, this 'Plan B', to be activated in the event of the total destruction of the planet, is not at all feasible.

Humanity is intrinsically interlinked, indeed one, with the Earth and the Earth is co-created by humanity. Humanity has been formed, structured and physically and consciously evolved within the auric envelope of Mother Earth. And she reciprocally, in the last one hundred and fifty years especially, has transformed her state of being in response to human intervention. This is patently evident with the clear scientific evidence that spells out massive shifts in weather patterns, ocean currents, atmospheric makeup and plant and animal extinction in response to destruction of habitat.

Humanity and its home planet Earth are co-creators in the true sense of the word, morphing and changing in response to one another. How other could humans survive and thrive in an alien landscape, unless by morphing into a completely new species?

Humanity has been heading up the wrong path with the polarized ‘separation’ thinking of the Patriachal paradigm. We know this because Gaia Herself has begun to show signs and symptoms of imbalance. Enveloped within Her energetic envelope we cannot help but be experiencing the same discomfort.

Enter the Divine Feminine, the emergent consciousness flooding the planet right now. This powerfully yin energy calls for a return to nature and natural ways, and fosters connection and conservation principles that seek to work with and align with the planetary consciousness of Gaia rather than to objectify, rape and plunder Her. In reflecting Her wisdom and intelligence through sciences such as Biomimicry, where human design mimics Nature’s intelligent design providing massive financial and environmental advantage, humanity co-creates with Her, in an act of mutually rewarding reciprocity.

The Divine Feminine expresses the yin polarity, manifested in the body through the yin energy centres of the second, fourth and sixth chakras. These chakras  promote the consciousness of expansion of intuition, love and spiritual perception and foster connection, collaboration, conservation and a sense of the unity of all beings. Through this prism we realign with our planetary home, reflecting one another so that together we are One.

In honouring and furthering the Divine Feminine, we stand on equal footing with the Divine Masculine, restoring harmony and balance to both humanity and the planet we call home.

An auspicious event in the astrological calendar, the Venus Transit, is occurring on June 6th 2012. There is much excitement in scientific circles about this event, but it is its spiritual significance that will affect us all globally. Venus eclipsing the Sun represents a strengthening of the Divine Feminine energies to support a return to the lore of love as the driving force on our planet.

The transformation brought about by the showering of these beautiful Venusian energies will lead humanity into a higher spiritual path. What we can expect, as this wisdom settles into our consciousness, is a peaceful way of being that wants no part in war, aggression, killing and mutilating, environmental degradation, chaos, starvation and moral breakdown. These atrocities will be no longer tenable or even thinkable in the light of the new awareness that is being ushered onto the planet right now and magnified with this series of powerful astrological events.

 

Transits of Venus occur in pairs, eight years apart. The previous one was on 8th June 2004 and on June 6th 2012, the second in the current
pair of transits is occurring. There won’t be another transit until 2117, over a hundred years from now. The last pair of transits was in 1874 and 1882. During this time there was a call for women’s rights and Feminism was born.

 

 

Venus transits represent a greater focus on feminine energy and love being downloaded to us from the celestial realms. Venus rules love, values, self-worth, abundance, finances, harmony, beauty, the Arts, relaxation, pleasure, and sex.

The Dalai Lama has spoken about how women will save the earth – he refers to the fact that women have the Venusian qualities of connection, love, nurturing and support inscripted into their biology and how by allowing these qualities to come to the fore, we can help humankind transform to bring about a peaceful and loving society.

Women have been forced to take second place in the patriarchal society that has dominated Western culture over the past three thousand years. However, there are many recorded stories in Ancient Wisdom of women playing important roles as healers, goddesses, shamans, leaders and saviours.

It is this powerful Divine Feminine energy that is now coming into play at a Cosmic level – and bathing humanity in its transformative glow.

Women must come into their strength and take their turn at leading humankind into the New Light.

This does not mean that women will dominate men into subservience.  The energy of the feminine is about power-sharing, inclusion, connection and support, so it is more likely that men will feel empowered and willing to power-share, grateful that the responsibility which has rested so heavily on their shoulders, will be lightened and co-opted.

This re-emergence of the Divine Feminine is not an ending, but rather a necessary step towards ultimate balance, where the Divine Feminine and the Divine Masculine sit easily side-by-side to bring about peaceful co-existence on Earth, with the planet and with all her Kingdoms; human, plant, animal and mineral.

The Spirit of Woman Essence Blends that work towards loving ourselves and valuing who we are are Woman Worth and Body Love. You can read about both of these beautiful supportive essence blends if you click here.

 

 

The Divine Feminine

2012 has been hailed as the year of the ‘end’ of life as we know it – predictions of catastrophic events have served to create fear and trembling on one level of understanding, but  those whose feet are planted firmly in the ‘real’ recognise that the end of one cycle automatically opens to another. The signs of change are all around us as climatic, economic and political instability grab the news headlines, and we are forced, in our personal lives, to reconsider novel ways of navigating our relationships, our work habits and social interactions in order to retain some sense of control. The old order is rapidly changing.

The advent of the internet has been one of the most critical agents of change in our global, national and local community and our social, working and personal lives.

Enabling interconnectedness through networking, its significance in politics, the media, commerce, education, the spread of information to the furthest out reaches of the globe has been transformational for the human community. In the personal arena is has fostered connections between people for the promotion of trade, the  gathering of interest groups, the strengthening and expansion of friendships and the blossoming of intimate relationships.

The global interconnectedness facilitated by the internet  has brought about a deeper global awareness of the need for our human family to work together in relationship with one another, and with the planet, if all seven billion of us are to survive and enjoy an abundant and fulfilled life. The information super highway of the internet has reached and informed even the most geographically isolated people, and has precipitated a desire for all to share in the abundance and quality that life can offer – provided all humans can learn to share.

With these demands arising from the groundswell, humanity is being forced to change the way the world has been structured up to now. The changes demanded of us are so precipitous and challenging, we need to know how to navigate the transition, let alone feel confident that everything is unfolding as it should be.

From the Course of Miracles comes a reminder to focus on what is real in our own lives, rather than on fears:

” Nothing unreal exists.

Nothing unreal can be threatened.

Herein lies the peace of God”

In unpacking the ‘trend’ of the change, it seems that some of the words that might describe what is being asked of us as we transit the inexorable transits all around us are: interconnectedness rather than separation, mindful conservation rather than mindless consumption, helpful co-operation rather than harmful competition, mutual support rather than self-centred independence, considered management rather than speculative risk-taking and planned resourcefulness rather than reckless expenditure.

Each quality listed above is asking us in one way or another to move into relationship – with one another, nation to nation and humanity to the planet.

 The ability to be in relationship is an endowment of the Divine Feminine.

Human beings have been very much under the influence of the Divine Masculine for the past three thousand years or more. We needed to be, because we were in the growth and development stage of human consciousness. But now is the time for us to move into our hearts and to do so we need to embrace the Divine Feminine. Let’s look at how we can do that in our personal relationships…..

St Valentine’s Day is on the horizon. This is a day when we celebrate the Divine Feminine energy of the heart. We come into the heart when we move from a position of being centred solely within the self (ego-centred) to a place where we are centred between ourselves and the other. In so doing, we come into relationship.

From this stance, we can celebrate differences, negotiate outcomes, co-operate for mutual advantage and more readily recognise our own part in disharmony, thereby defusing conflict. Instead of being the judge, critically evaluating the other from a lofty position, we become the empathiser, understanding the human-ness of ourselves and others. Relationships flourish under this perspective.

When was the last time, in the middle of an argument, you stopped in midstream to consider ‘what part am I playing in this disagreement? and what did I contribute to this situation?’ Most of us take the adversarial stance in a dispute, thinking from our own ego-centred self, ‘I am right and he/she is wrong’!

From the Divine Feminine perspective, we soften our position to allow the other to be fully present in our consciousness, even in dispute. By sharing the moment from the heart and celebrating our differences in the here and now, we allow the other to have a point of view while simultaneously upholding and empathising with our own position. In this way we come into the space between ourselves where resolution is easier. Often the outcome is laughter with a mutual sense of renewed ability to negotiate the dispute.

This is Goddess energy. It is the energy of love, peace, allowance and co-operation. And it is awakened on the planet in 2012.

Aspects of Goddess energy have been articulated powerfully in human history through mythology and inscribed in the heavens as the Asteroid Goddesses. Those that pertain to love, romance, innocence and deflecting the wounds of love include:

Aphrodite – the Lover archetype involves Venus and the Air signs especially Libra

Persephone – the Innocent Daughter archetype involving water signs especially Scorpio and Pisces

Hestia – the Spiritual Devotee archetype involving Earth signs and especially Virgo and Capricorn

Artemis Goddess of the Hunt – the feminine warrior archetype involving thMars and the Fire signs especially Aries and Sagittaruis

The Asteroid Goddesses express the many aspects of the Divine Feminine – the energy being ushered in during 2012 and to which all humans will be exposed during the next phase in the evolution of consciousness. As we learn to gracefully engage in relationships in all aspects of life, not just personal, we will experience more peace in the world and an atmosphere of pervading love that will enable us to survive as a species and enjoy communion with other life forms on the planet, for mutual life enhancement.

Great relationships and partnering skills are keys to a happy, fulfilled life. When your relationships at home and at work are harmonious, you can easily and effortlessly enjoy the benefits of collaborative interaction, joy and mutual satisfaction, together creating a better world….

And yet many relationships are plagued with jealousy, resentment, blame, secrecy and lack of appreciation. Ironically each partner invariably starts out with a deep desire to love the other and to never fall into the same trap that saw parents, friends, siblings or work colleagues break up in trauma, conflict and collateral damage.

With such a high divorce rate, workplace strife and social and political clashes worldwide afflicting many hapless and vulnerable people, there is a real need for re-evaluating how we relate to others. As human beings we suffer far too deeply from relationship conflict, across the breadth of our everyday lives. And our children often bear the brunt of our suffering.

One of the most basic human needs is for deep connection with others, especially those in our intimate zone. As many of us recognize, there’s a vast gap between what we want to feel in our close relationships and how we actually feel.

The good news is that you can change how you interact in your relationships and expect a change in your relationship as a result. And, even more amazing, is that the relationship will not just repay you doubly for the change you initiate, but in a myriad of manifold ways that will ripple out into your life and that of everyone you have close contact with.

Isn’t it time you took up the challenge to make a difference in your own life???

 

You need to know that you are never more than 20 seconds away from turning your relationship life around and taking off in a new, positive direction.

Changes made in relationships happen in the choices and commitments you make in tiny moments of time. This means that the past is irrelevant and the only thing that matters is the choice being made right at this moment – awareness of the preciousness of the present is the gift you give to you and your partner….

The secret is that ALL human relationships have the potential to be either heaven or hell and no-one, no matter how socially well-placed, successful in a career, financially secure or politically correct, is immune to the possibility of a relationship in tatters….that is the nature of human vulnerability.

Learning how to avoid the pitfalls or to resuscitate a relationship that is in free-fall is not part of the curriculum at school, but it sure needs to be.

Keeping the flow of love and positive energy going is often a learned skill, and it doesn’t need a lifetime of ruined relationships to acquire it. There are shortcuts that will amaze you with how swiftly and easily they bring results.

It is worth your time and attention to learn these skills – the effect will flow through your life in ways you never could have imagined – in situations I have worked with connections have been healed even for couples on the brink of divorce, family members who haven’t spoken for years have renewed their bonds of affection and business partners have been able to get past their stuckness to go on and do big things together.

Join renowned relationships expert Annie Meredith for a ground-breaking weekend for singles, couples and professionals. Author of acclaimed The Essence of Woman, Annie draws on cutting-edge research into gender differences while adding decades of experience of working with thousands of people to bring you time-tested understandings and strategies for creating amazing and conscious partnering in all areas of your life.

Using Spirit of Woman Australian Wild Flower Essences as valuable tools in your journey to happy and fulfilled relationships in your life, you will come away from this weekend workshop:

  • becoming more present in your relationship
  • understanding how to transform conflict into a celebration of differences
  • becoming fully authentic so that your relationship flourishes on what you each uniquely bring to the partnership.
If you are ready to unmask the real you, connecting with the deep yearning that longs for love and connection, so that you can transform your relationship into a partnership that works, then you will love this life-changing weekend. Click here to book online.

Keeping the flow of love and positive energy going is often a learned skill, and it doesn’t need a lifetime of ruined relationships to acquire it. There are shortcuts that will amaze you with how swiftly and easily they bring results.

It is worth your time and attention to learn these skills – the effect will flow through your life in ways you never could have imagined – in situations I have worked with connections have been healed even for couples on the brink of divorce, family members who haven’t spoken for years have renewed their bonds of affection and business partners have been able to get past their stuckness to go on and do big things together.

Join renowned relationships expert Annie Meredith for a ground-breaking weekend for singles, couples and professionals. Author of acclaimed The Essence of Woman, Annie draws on cutting-edge research into gender differences while adding decades of experience of working with thousands of people to bring you time-tested understandings and strategies for creating amazing and conscious partnering in all areas of your life.

One of the most outstanding faculties biologically inscribed into women is their multi-functionality. Hard-wired into the brain, this natural ability means that they can function at a highly optimal level quite easily, with a high degree of success in each of the levels from which they are operating simultaneously.

However, although multi-functionality is naturally occurring facility, it gobbles up a woman’s day-to-day energy and can deplete her basic resources severely over time, especially if she has not programmed regular relaxation and recreation into her life. As an educator in Natural Medicine and a natural health practitioner working specifically with women for over thirty years I know this to be true. Energy depletion lies at the root of many recurring illnesses and triggers the onset of many chronic diseases by compromising the immune system. It also affects how we feel –  I have personally experienced the depressed spirits, low self-worth and need to withdraw that accompanies consistently low energy levels in my early child-rearing days.

That’s why, here at Spirit of Woman we welcome the notion of women looking after themselves and taking time out of their normally busy, exciting and full but often stressed lives to take in some ease, calmness and relaxation. We offer this invitation to you to attend:

Chakra 6 – the Third Eye

Chakra 6 activates between the ages of 8.5 to 14 years and then every seven years starting at 19. At this age again we have the opportunity to revisit this chakra and the issues involved with it through the lens of progressive maturity.

Chakra Six continues the journey into the realms of the Higher Self and through the faculties imbued into this energy centre we begin the process of the ‘getting of wisdom’.

Located in the forehead just above the mid-point between the physical eyes, the third eye as it is commonly named, can be described as our inner eye which grants us the ability to look within to evaluate the lessons that life is teaching us.

We have moved beyond the realms of physical elements at this centre and move into the higher frequency bands where thought, as a distinct but unmeasureable entity, exists. This is the dominion of mind that has a wider definition that simply the brain – it expresses the first level of the consciousness that is part of the greater manifestation of the vital energy that surrounds and interpenetrates us. Mind has no boundaries – it cannot be confined by physical constraints. Even in prison a person’s soul can be freed through the stretching and expanding of the mind.

It is through the rigorous training of the mind that we hone the tool of intention. Intention coupled with, and driven by desire manifests our reality, so here we recognise the power of thought. The sixth chakra governs the right side of the brain, the function of which is to ‘see the big picture’. Higher intelligence is seeing the interconnections of things and appreciating the pattern and order of the larger view. Ancient wisdom made use of symbolism to understand the world around them. If a crow flew overhead as a baby was being born the baby might have been named Black Crow, have the crow as a totem, and govern and direct his life according to ‘crow’ totemic principles. The highly developed soul recognizes the signs that appear to them in everyday life as indications of the next turn in the path of life.

This chakra is related to ‘seeing’ the soul’s true path so that we can fulfill our soul’s destiny. It is the ‘navigating system’ guiding us through intuition to follow our bliss so that we fulfill our purpose here on earth.

Similarly it is here that we ‘see’ when we have strayed off the path of our true destiny through the process of insight. This allows us to learn the lessons that life has to offer so that we can make ‘corrections’ to our navigation system. By the process of reminiscence we ‘go over’ the events of the past, hopefully to learn from our experiences.

Intuition is our inbuilt guiding system. If you are wanting to access your intuitive side regarding a question about yourself ask, “Does it make my heart sing or sink?” This is the question that reveals the truth of our intuitive knowing. If we can honestly make decisions in our life based on the body-mind experience of answering this simple question, then we are following our intuition.

To get an idea of how balanced your Third Eye Chakra (Chakra Six) is, answer the questions below. There is no right or wrong, just an awareness of how well you express your Third Eye Chakra in your daily life……

CHAKRA SIX: LIGHT, CLAIRVOYANCE

Do you notice visual details in your surroundings?

Do you have vivid dreams?

Do you have psychic experiences (precognition, intuition)?

How would you rate your ability to visualize?

Do you make use of your imagination?

Do you like bright colours?

Are you on track for following your life’s purpose?

Spirit of Woman Australian Wild Flower Essences help to restore balance and clear distortions to the chakras. They do this powerfully but gently by re-attuning you to your best possible expression, assisting you to make decisions in your life that are life-affirming and healing.

For example, the Spirit of Woman Australian Wild Flower Essence Wild Iris activates a positive expression of the Third Eye Chakra by enhancing intuition, balancing between joyous spiritual expression and gracefully embracing the practical aspects of living, tapping into the mysteries of the inner self to understand and inform our earthly experience, easy expression of the feminine intelligence whether a male or female, balances hormones and grants wisdom. It is included in the Body Love blend for living, loving and honouring the feminine through a healthy acceptance and joy in the body, Blessed Birthing for engaging with the deep feminine innate wisdom of birthing, Brain Balance for balancing brain function and assisting with memory loss and brain changes as the brain ages, Clear Skin to re-establish hormonal balance, Pre-Conception, Conception and Pregnancy Support for optimal hormonal support around conception to assist fertility and facilitate pregnancy. It is also a feature essence in the blends Speak Easy Woman Worth and Wise Woman each of which helps to listen to the inner whisperings of the feminine spirit and embody the essence of what being and feeling like a woman truly is.
