Power of Element - Earth/Water/Fire/ Air & Metal

The power of elements are dynamic. It is important to be aware of the effect an element has on you.
To experience the element 'Earth' - I get out doors into a park and am aware of the solid feeling under my feet while walk or lie down on the grass. Earth energy gives one the feeling of Stability, Reliability and Confidence.
To carry this solid grounding energy with me all the time - I take a miff of Cedarwood.
To experience element 'Water' - I dangle my feet in a swimming pool or listen to the bubbling sound of a fountain in my Living Room. If you live near the sea watch the movement of an ocean, or a stream.
This arouses the emotions and the ability to go with the flow of life. The essential oil that helps one go with the flow is Palma Rosa.
To learn the power of 'Fire' - I gaze at a fire or a candle flame, or feel the warmth of the 'Sun' on my body. Fire is associated with transformation, action, momentum and the intellect.
Kindle this element within me I use a few drops of Rosemary.
To appreciate the element 'Air' - I watch the smoke of Incense rise (light an incense of my choice). I am attentive to my breath. This element gives me the feeling of growth and creativity.
This element gives me the feeling of growth and creativity.

Experience 'Metal' - by handling a fine Gold or Silver chain. It is associated with abundance, wealth and success.

The oil associated with abundance and wealth is Patchouli

Before you use an essential oil, think Gratitude. This will influence the effect that the aroma has upon you. Many
plants are cut down to extract and distill their essence.
It takes 30 Rose blossoms for instance to make just 1 drop of Rose essence. Zen Gardens treat their plants with great respect. They thank them for their life essence and explain the human need for which they are being harvested.

My hair was very dull so I gave myself a Molasses Hair Wrap.
Try this Molasses Wrap. To add shine and Moisture to your hair:
1/2 cup Molasses, 5 drops Rosemary essential oil, apply the mixture directly to damp hair and massage into scalp. Cover hair with shower cap or plastic wrap and leave in for 20 minutes. Rinse with warm water and shampoo hair as usual.

New Life

Put some new life and happiness in the Rooms with Plants and Flowers and Candles and Deffusers with essential oils of Neroli or Palma Rosa.

Ground Myself

Today I was invited to Run to mark 200 days to the 4th Military World Games, that is to be held at Hydrabad. This run has left me feeling all AIRY and I need to ground myself.

So I am going to give all my attention to each task - one activity at a time and forget about the results.

Imagine just eating slowly and tasting each bite or looking at the stars or just listening fully to someone and not thinking about what you want to say".

The smell of Coffee helps to focus the Mind - So lets smell some Coffee as well as drink a cup of Coffee!!

We have just returned from a three dat stay at Jim Corbett Park - The Tiger country - leaving aside that we went for a Safari to see tigers and saw none!! The stay there was Rejuvenating.

I found that walking in the garden and barefoot on the grass is a type of meditation. It makes the breathing rhythmic and as the breathing expands and lifts so does the mind.

Taking a couple of deep breaths and breathing in the aroma of the grass, the flowers (Mango Blossom) and the trees - Believe you me it is a heady mixture that let my inspiration return to me through my feet

The most beautiful make-up of a woman is Passion. Today look in the miror, bless the face that looks back at you and put on some make-up (some lipstick).
Put a few drops of Ylang Ylang on a tissue - Inhale and fill your days with Passion about everything.

Prayer Just for Today

This is my favourite prayer. Write it on Handmade and Perfumed paper - Use Sandalwood/Frankicense.
Just for today
Oh God, give me grace for this day. Not for a life time, not for next week, nor for tomorrow just for this day.
  • Direct my thoughts and Bless them.
  • Direct my work and Bless up.
  • Direct the things I say and give them Blessings too.
  • Direct and Bless everything that I think, speak and do.

So that for this one day just for day, I have the gift of grace, one that comes from your presence.

Indoor Fountain

An Indoor fountain with a few drops of Basil or Vertiver oil added to it. It has a refreshing and beneficial impact in any home.
Flowing water creates soothing sound and instigates healthy refreshing release of negative ions that provide a sense of well being and makes breathing easier. Flowing water also means flowing money and this factor symbolizes that money not only comes to you but also that your funds are effective and create results.
Make sure the following points to you:
Best place is entrance.
Career, Helpful people, Wealth areas of the Feng Shui, Bagua in a room, House, Office or even on a desk. Or in terms of the Five elements at Water, Metal and Wood areas.

For hundreds of years, the ancient Greeks and Romans used Cinnamon for better digestion. But be careful not to eat Cinnamon oil. It can be toxic if injested even in small amounts. Instead use ground Cinnamon to spice up your meals and vegetables.
You can sprinkle it on Pumpkin pie, cooked Carrots, Squash and Sweet Potatoe's. You could also use the sticks in Wines, Coffee drinks and juices. Apart from pepping up digestion, it stabalises Blood Sugar - a pinch of Cinnamon can make insulin work better.

Literally abundance is "a dance" - The dance of energy flowing in an eternal cycle of life. When we are connected to this flow of energy there is always enough love, joy and financial security and we are empowered to perform the dance of life with ease and fluidity.
The abundance oil of vertiver is a pure aromatherapy oil which has an earthy fragrance can be used for massage, bath therapy or in an aromatic diffuser. The essential oil Vertiver which carries the orange healing ray of creativity and productivity brings to mind the joy and wonder of abundance.

Happy Woman's day

Today is Holi and we have come to Baddi, a small town in Himachal Pradesh. It has become an industrial hub, where most of the cosmetic manufacturing of India has shifted. We have our cosmetic factory here and we also have a little cottage, with a great lawn.
I was feeling really ill when we arrived, but had to get ready to play Holi as the whole family was here. So I came upon an excellent pre-Holi ritual to feel great - I filled the bath tub with hot water, added a few drops of Eucalyptus and Tea Tree. To this scented water I added 2 cups of Epson salts and seven types of flowers. These signify the lovely attributes of the seven planets - The Sun, Moon, Jupiter, Venus, Mars, Saturn and Mercury - This also added beauty and colour.
I had a long soak in this water - then a massage with some aromatic oil Eucalyptus Peace before going off to sleep. Woke up on top of the world - rubbed Mustard oil all over the hair, scalp, body and played Holi. Mustard oil is excellent. I have no trace of colour at all - and I feel great!!!
