In this week of the full moon, the Strawberry moon and our dynamic start to summer, I have energy on my mind…. What we allow, what we accept. How we find Inspiration in a full circle as giving and receiving. And when that sacred balance is not upheld, how that can feel. Slighted. Anxious. Angry. Taken advantage of.
We had a moth infestation this Spring. Moth sightings had been getting more frequent, and I dedicated a Saturday to investigating. I took the bed apart, moved it off the large Asian rug in our bedroom, and broke out the vacuum. It was worse than I thought, at least 25% of the rug had been destroyed by these parasites. They were under the large rug, in the closet, and in wool pieces we had from travels. I put all sweaters into the freezer, made a magic blend of powerful essential oils, and started the vacuum.
How it is that I allowed moths to take hold, in my bedroom, under our bed… yikes! Is it time to fly towards the light? It feels like this is a good season for vigilance. For paying attention to energetic balance, for listening to those asking for more of something.
My magic potion that went into the glass spray bottle:
Cedarwood- Is fantastic for helping us to focus or sleep, and is fresh and grounding.
Arborvitae- This tree called the Tree of Immortality. So many aromatic compounds in the wood, fallen logs will not rot for 100 years.
Peppermint- Peppermint is great as a repellent, for fleas, ticks, mice, and spiders. And oxygenating our human brains.
Melaleuca- This oil, or Tea Tree oil, helps prevent fungus from growing. It is fantastic for ending any stink, helps freshen a space and repels some pests.
Outdoor blend – This oil repels all forms of pests and can be used for ticks and fleas without exposing pets and kids to nasty chemicals.
Then… a brief trip to the Bay Area and our car was broken into and wallet taken. All cards, ID, receipts, gift certs… again. What all WAS in there? I am using this analogy for all of life, clearly it’s time! NO more taking and not giving for entities around us. I am taking back my power from disparate chaos like this, with clearing, setting boundaries, resetting ideations… so we can say YES to our dreams. Boundaries are supported with immune-enhancing oils, including OnGuard, Melaleuca, Manuka, Rosemary, Frankincense, to create energetic boundaries.
Friends, this week and full moon is a whole new beginning for new intentions as we move quickly this Friday into Summer. As we step into the busy season that summer can be, I invite you to cast your eyes to the stars for the best summer yet! Find your balance with energies around you and in your home, your campsite, your train compartment or airplane seats. Don’t let the pests in life get you down, be vigilant and once those boundaries are set, enjoy relaxing into your time. Truly, it is through using our frustrations, anger, or other powerful feelings – transformed as vigilance and discipline, that our dreams can be made manifest.
Excited to see what we grow together, from these intentionally planted seeds. Wishing a blessed summer to you!
