Flower and Energy Essences are a very special type of holistic healing that work with the nature spirits and elementals that give form to all living things. Our nervous system receives and transmits knowledge, accessing the bio-energy/life force that is unique to each flower or natural material. Essences work in subtle, gentle and safe ways on the fields of energy within and around our body, allowing healing to take place at all levels.

The Hawaiian language is beautiful and complex. The word, Akua, has many meanings. I use it here to mean the invisible, creative essence of nature, including the nature spirits that surround us. Please use these Essences with deep love and gratitude for the guidance, love, friendship and total commitment to our healing from the Flower and Nature Spirits.

Allow me to be your guide in choosing and working with the vibrational healing qualities of Flower & Energy Essences. Working co-creatively with the Akua, nature spirits, devas and elementals, each drop of the healing waters of Flower & Energy Essences vibrates with its own positive healing quality.

Molly from Green Hope Farm reminds us to follow our hearts when being guided to take Flower Essences.

It is my greatest pleasure to offer my combined training and experience in holistic hypnosis, vibrational healing, meridian tapping, educational kinesiology, breath awareness and Hawaiian healing to begin the process of change, activate healing and inspire a beautiful life with intuition, expertise, elegance, compassion, grace, truth, love and gratitude.

I hope you benefit from the information shared here. If this is different from what you have been taught, I am sorry. Please enjoy what is of interest to you and leave the rest.

Take care, Sally

Sacred Truths of the Chakra Centers in our body.

I use this concept of “sacred truths” connected to each chakra.
Caroline Myss' Chakra System of Sacred Truths
Understanding Your Sacred Truths

Caroline Myss teaches that the strengths and fears associated with each of the seven chakras follow from either honoring, or not honoring, the sacred truth associated with each of the body's chakras, or energy centers. If the sacred truth is not honored, the likelihood of energy weakness, and possibly physical dysfunctions may increase.

Chakra One - All is One
Essential energy of this Chakra is Tribal Power [Note from Sally: I edit this to add “Safety and Security, Feeling fully Supported and Connected ”]

We are connected to all of life, and every choice we make and every belief we hold exerts influence upon the whole of life.

Fears: Physical survival, abandonment by the group, loss of physical order. [Sally adds: “insecurity about money, work and relationships; feeling alone, unworthy, unconnected, unwanted, afraid”]

Strengths: Tribal, [community, social] and family identity,
bonding, support, loyalty.
