Even though these essences are completely safe, they are extremely powerful. Use with common sense, starting with 4 to 8 drops a day at dosage solution ( 4 drops stock to 1oz. spring water ), noticing carefully any reactions you are having with the essences and then increasing the dose as you feel guided to do so. These essences can bring about profound shifts in your levels of consciousness and perceptions of reality, truly the hallmark of the Shamanic path.

Bear's Golden Salve

Affirmation - Powerful Healing Is Now Happening For Me In My Life On All Levels

This essence was given to me during a spontaneous OBE while in the grip of a physically painful, traumatic experience. My Grizzly Bear totem (Rumi), handed me a bottle containing this essence and instructed me to apply it all over my body. As soon as I came back into my physical body I noticed an immediate change for the better. Rumi then walked me through the process of creating the energy he had given me in essence form. This for me was a huge turning point in my life and since then the feedback on this essence has been that it can be used to support the healing process of anything that troubles a person, from the Spiritual to the mundane. Children especially seem to find this essence very appealing and of strong resonance. It brings great comfort when one is feeling low or in need of rest and rejuvenation, and I currently am testing it as part of a cold/flu energy release essence blend. This essence is also a powerful booster for other essences. It can also be used to restore essences to full strength and purity when they have been x-rayed as when a parcel goes through customs or airport security. For those who have concerns on this topic (I have been asked about this numerous times in regards to a wide range of essence lines) this essence can be simply set near the exposed essences and need not be added to any of the stock bottles. Or if preferred, 4 drops of this essence can be added to the dosage bottle along with any other essences.

Bumble Bee

Affirmation - I Know My True Career Path & As I Pursue It, Every Other Aspect Of My Life Also Blossoms

I have long found it interesting that many people when asked what Spirituality means to them they say things along the lines of " having to give something up, make sacrifices, ignore what I really want because damn if I can see how that could possibly be spiritual! What if through bee we could see the whole realm of spirituality in a whole new way? Bees as are all of Spirit's creatures highly spiritual. They form cooperative networks with one another and certainly they are experts at communal living. When one discovers a food source, it returns to dance to tell the others where this source is. The following I feel is most important to keep in mind: In serving themselves through the collection of pollen, they also provide a service to the plants and flowers they are pollinating! Because they are doing what is right and good for them, what is natural to them by instinct, they insure that life continues on for all other species.

I once tuned into to the consciousness of a Bumble Bee and what I felt was this sense of pure joy in collecting the pollen, feeding off the nectar and not one whit of worry as to whether what it was doing was spiritual or not in the grander scheme of things! The bee's consciousness was focused on one thing only, that which gave it pleasure. In doing what came naturally to it, it was buzzing at a very high vibration and the intensity of it's energy left me feeling most uplifted. Now what if we could simply tune in to that which gives us the most pleasure for our own lives, what comes naturally to each one of us? What gives us the most joy as we go through our days, that is what Bee is trying to remind us of here.

Bees are also for doing the impossible. According to physics they should not be able to fly at all and yet they do so quite well! Could it be then that Bee is here to teach us that not all we have been told about the world is correct? That we are only as limited as our beliefs say we are and we too can manifest the seeming impossible if we are willing to step aside from all we think we know and just allow the Universe to teach us some thing new? Try this exercise for one month and see what happens: Choose one thing that you would love to create in your life that you feel right now is impossible. I don't care what it is or how far out it may seem! Write it down on paper. Now for the next thirty days you are going to ask each morning upon rising for the Universe to send you signs that your desire is possible to manifest as well as giving you any tools and information you may need to make it so. Hold the paper in your hands and feel the energy of the Universe flowing through you a nd into the paper. Then set it aside and go on about your day but keep your eyes and ears open! Every evening write down everything you can think of that pertains to your desire that happened to you during the day. Within a week you should be noticing things happening that help make the desire more believable for you. And of course if you choose to create a symbol for this and share it with a group, expect a miracle hands down for surely you shall receive what you desire as LONG AS YOU CONTINUE TO BELIEVE IN IT AND FEED IT! And that is how the milk got in the coconut!

This Bumble bee Essence is available for those of you who would like a little extra help in manifesting or believing that going for pure joy in every moment of your life is truly what you came here to do for in fact I know with all of my heart that is truly what we came here for! So pickthe most outrageous, delicious and exciting thing you can think of and go for it!

Burrowing Owl

Affirmation - I Know I Am Completely Safe As I Express The Truth Of Who I Am. I Am Loved & Accepted

Burrowing Owls are one of the most observable of all Owls because of their great tolerance for the presence of humans. Because of this, this is a very helpful essence for those who are fearful of letting their true selves be seen by others because they feel they will not be accepted or those who are simply quite shy. Instead of hifing themselves away, the person can come out into the light and feel safe enough to express their true beauty and potential in the world.

Fossilized Bison Bone

Affirmation - I Believe In And Affirm To Myself Frequently The Truth Of Plenty Plenty Plenty!

This bone came from the North Sea. It is a leg bone that helps us to support and do more for ourselves and to also feel more support from the world and the Universe. It also helps to get down deep into the very roots of lack and belief in scarcity, especially if those beliefs are very stubborn and crystallized and other tools or essences seem to be ineffective in releasing them. This can be a very powerful kick up the bum essence so I would suggest anyone working with it to go slowly with it, no more than 4 drops twice a day until you see how you react to it.

Fruit Bat

Affirmation - I Always Express Myself In The Most Appropriate Of Ways & In The Right Moments

Also known as "Flying Foxes", Fruit Bats can be extremely noisy creatures who tend to scream loudly at one another. Thus we too can learn through working with this essence how we may best communicate with others in order to get our messages across loudly and clearly. Yet because of their knickname of Flying Foxes, these bats can also teach us when we need to remain quite and "hide away" until we know it truly is safe to go ahead and express ourselves. These Bats live almost exclusively on fruit and have a tendency to scatter seeds over a wide area. Here too this essence can teach us how to scatter the positive seeds of our dreams and goals over a wide area in the knowing that this will give them the best chance for "germination" and development.

Ghost Bat

Affirmation - Good Luck Now Comes Flying Into My Life, Bringing me An Abundance Of All Good In All Things

Affirmation - All The Energy That Comes My Way Is Beautiful, Uplifiting & Supportive Of Me

I actually had a dream about Giraffe shortly before producing this essence. Or rather, Giraffe appeared in the form of a dear friend who was quite tall in the dream, much taller than in real life. I realised it was Giraffe sharing with me that its medicine in part is the ability to stand above all of life and detach to see what is really happening. Giraffe also represents the bridge between "that which is above and below", connecting us with Higher Wisdom and Knowledge that we may live more joyful lives. When Giraffe appears in a person's life it is important for them to begin looking ahead to the future.
