Aura

Aura:

What is an Aura?

By definition Aura is an invisible emanation or field of energy believed to radiate from a person or object.

Each person’s Aura color tells the story behind their life situations and their personalities. The Aura color can also change depending on changes in a person’s life but can also be seen in the Aura.

 

Aura colors around the energy field tell what the situation is:

Left Side (Female – Yin)

The color on the left side is normally the vibration coming into your being. It is what you feel inside, but might not have expressed.

Above Head (Thoughts – Beliefs)

The color over your head is what you experience for yourself now. It reflects what you think or believe at that moment and shows your current state of mind.

Right Side (Male – Yang)

The color on the right side is traditionally energy being expressed, the qualities most likely seen or felt by others around you. It is this that you are putting out to the world.

Center (Base Aura Color)

Your most dominate Aura Color is seen in the center of your body. This Base Aura Color helps determine your Personality Type and does not change as fast as the outside colors.

 

Dark, muddy or multiple Aura Colors:

You might be stressed, tired or experiencing emotional problems. You may be in a period or tremendous growth and change reflected by several aura colors.

 

Chakras:

The shape, size and intensity of the color of each chakra reflects various physical, emotional, mental and spiritual states within your aura.

Round, circular chakras show a balanced energy system:

Non-circular, blurred chakras show an imbalance in your energy centers. Also look at the color and brightness of each chakra for a more detailed analysis.

So what color is your Aura and how balanced is your energy center?

Agrimony is most used in modern herbal practice as a mild astringent and a tonic. Agrimony’s astringency is effective against diarrhea, especially in small children, and because of its low toxicity, the herb is particularly suitable for children’s illnesses. Agrimony stops irritation of the urinary tract that may increase a child’s urge to urinate and, therefore, may be useful in the treatment of bladder leakage (cannot hold urine), bed-wetting and may help to control incontinence in adults as well.

Agrimony is perhaps best known as a wound herb used on medieval battlefields to staunch bleeding. This same property helps to slow heavy menstrual bleeding as well. Agrimony is also considered a very useful agent in skin eruptions and diseases of the blood, pimples, blotches, etc.

Parts Used: dried leaves, stems, unopened flowers, sprouts

Constituents: beta-carotene and vitamins c, e, and k

Alfalfa leaf contains a broad spectrum of nutrients, including considerable quantities of protein, trace mineral and vitamins, dietary fiber and chlorophyll, which serves as an antioxidant in the bloodstream. The deep root system absorbs minerals from the soil resulting in a plant rich in vitamins and minerals and a great source of fiber and protein. Alfalfa leaf is rich in protein and vitamins A, D, E, and K. Alfalfa extract is a good source of chlorophyll and carotene. It is important to insist on certified organic alfalfa, since the plant concentrates cadmium, copper, lead, nickel, and zinc when it is grown in contaminated soils. The leaves contain eight essential amino acids. Alfalfa sprouts are a staple of salads and contain nutrients, but the leaves hold the best healing potential.

Alfalfa is not recommended as primary treatment for any condition, alfalfa is a tonic herb, one that supports health by nourishing the body. Alfalfa is of special interest to women because of its estrogenic activity. Chemicals in alfalfa called saponins can help lower blood cholesterol (by impeding intestinal absorption) without affecting heart-healthy HDL cholesterol.

Magical Properties of Alfalfa:

Alfalfa is a feminine herb of the earth element. It is ruled by Venus. Alfalfa is a bringer of prosperity. Carry it with you when you go to the bank to ask for a loan. To protect your home and all who dwell within from hunger, poverty and unhappiness, keep a small jar of alfalfa in your kitchen cabinet or pantry.

Anise has been a popular remedy here in North America for hundreds of years as carminative, a herb that relieves gas pains and bloating. Other traditional uses include colic, rheumatism, and the familiar licorice-flavor in cough drops.

The therapeutic powers of anise’s phytochemicals, including creosol and alpapinene, are commonly used in herbal remedies to break up congestion, and ease coughing. Anise is an expectorant that is also antiseptic to the mucous membranes. This means that anise does double duty: it kill germs while clearing the lungs of congestion.1

Anise and the closely related fennel both contain anethol which has estrogenic properties. Both of these herbs have a folklore reputation as tonics for women who are nursing and want to increase milk production , or have menstrual problems like delayed or skimpy periods.

 

Preparation Methods & Dosage :Sweet and very aromatic, anise can be used in tea, or in baking and cooking, the taste compliments cookies, cakes, and pasta dishes. Aniseed gives the Greek liqueur ouzo it’s distinctive licorice taste.

7 Chakra Points and the herbs & crystals to help balance and recharge them. Chakra 7 Crown

crown-chakra

7 Chakra Points and the herbs & crystals to help balance and recharge them.

Week 7 Chakra 7 (Crown Chakra)

Crown Chakra:  (I Understand)

Herbs: Lavender, Lotus. Teas, smudges, and bath soaks with these herbs will help balance and recharge the Crown Chakra

Crystal: Amethyst

 

The crown chakra is the seventh chakra and it is at the top of the “chakra ladder” which starts from the root chakra that grounds us on the Earth and progresses upward to the Sahasrara which connects us with the universe and the Divine source of creation.

Sahasrara is located at the crown of the head. The gift of this chakra is experiencing unity and the selfless realization that everything is connected at a fundamental level.

The energy of this chakra allows us to experience mystical oneness with everyone and everything in nature.

There is no intellectual knowing at the level of seventh chakra, but there is serenity, joy, and deep peace about life.

You have a sense of knowing that there is a deeper meaning of life and that there is an order that underlies all of existence.

The “way of the crown chakra” is the way of going beyond the limits of your own ego. It is the way of transcending the ego and knowing that all of creation is interconnected at a fundamental level.

A level that some call the “Akasha” or “Zero Point Field”, or just “the Field”. This is the fundamental level of connection.

According to Tantric philosophy, the seventh chakra is both a receiver and giver of energy and consciousness. It receives energy to sustain life and it gives back the personal energy to unite with the collective pool of consciousness.

It is the meeting point between finite (the body and the ego) and infinite (the universe and soul).

It is the place where time and timelessness intersect and where death and eternal life meet.

The thousand petal chakra embraces an attitude of gratitude for one’s life.

When we realize that everything is interconnected and that we are part of the larger scheme of life, we begin to live with gratitude, faith and trust, rather than filled with fear and anxiety.

We are guided by the higher power and we feel divinity from within and from without.

The challenge of this chakra is to liberate the spirit – open to the divine – and at the same time stay firmly rooted deep in the ground.

7 Chakra Points and the herbs & crystals to help balance and recharge them.  Week 6, Chakra 6 (Third Eye)

 

 

 

third-eye-chakra

 

7 Chakra Points and the herbs & crystals to help balance and recharge them.

Week 6, Chakra 6 (Third Eye)

Third Eye Chakra:  (I See)

Herbs: Mint, Jasmine, Lemon Peel, & Eyebright. Teas, smudges, and bath soaks with these herbs will help balance and recharge the Third Eye Chakra

Crystal: Clear Quartz

The Third Eye Chakra transcends time. It is located in the brain, at the brow, above the base of the nose.

The gift of this chakra is seeing – both inner and outer worlds.

The energy of this chakra allows us to experience clear thought as well as gifts of spiritual contemplation and self reflection.

Through the gift of seeing we can internalize the outer world and with symbolic language we can externalize the inner world.

The energy of Ajna allows us to access our inner guidance that comes from the depths of our being. It allows us to cut through illusion and to access deeper truths – to see beyond the mind, beyond the words.

The “way of the third eye” is seeing everything as it is from a point of “witness” or “observer”, or from simply being mindful – moment by moment.

It means examining self-limiting ideas and developing wisdom that comes from a perspective that transcends the duality of good or bad, black or white. It means seeing and helping others to see the deeper meanings of the situations in their lives.

Sixth chakra is holistic in nature. When this chakra is fully activated, both hemispheres of the brain function in synchrony. The right hemisphere’s creativity and synthetic thinking is integrated and balanced with left hemisphere’s logical and analytical thinking.

The Third Eye is not only the seat of wisdom, but also a seat of conscience. This is where you not only see what is going on, but you also know what it means. This is where your sense of justice and your ethics originate.

When your third eye is open, you not only see but you also understand.

 

Just some information: (Bearberry Moon)

LLWELLYN’S Witches’ Datebook 2018

“What herb could be more appropriate for a winter Moon than bearberry? High overhead, the Great Bear constellation, Ursa Major, stalks the night sky, even as her kin lie sleeping in their dens. Those that do stir, if only briefly, might be seen enjoying the last of the bright red berries of Arctostaphylos uva-uris that come on in late fall, though to humans they really don’t have much flavor”.

“Like many plants that have fibrous, spreading root systems that crawl just below the ground level before erupting in leaves, bearberry is useful for kidney ailments and urinary tract disorders. Because it helps as a diuretic to remove excess uric acid, bearberry may be used to treat gout. In Native American traditions, dried bearberry leaves were burned to carry prayers to the heavens”.

“The plant itself is evergreen and is said to be circumpolar, meaning it tends to prefer colder climates. Its rich green leaves are another reminder that, though winter storms may howl, all is not lost. There is hope for the future in the grey, barren landscape”.
