As a Holistic Practitioner and Energy Healer I found myself at a loss in terms of what to write about for a while, given that the holistic spectrum of health is vast. It felt a bit daunting not knowing where to begin, but today I found some clarity and believe these snippets of ‘wellness offerings’ will be fun and uplifting.
I will be offering a weekly blog-post where I will ask for guidance for the collective, trusting that all those who come across my musings will receive exactly what they need at that given time.
As I was channeling what I experienced in my journey, I came to realize that the ongoing theme is rest and quality sleep. I did some more research into what showed up and I found the correlations to be intriguing.
Let’s delve deeper.
This is what my guide shared with me about February.
As we move towards Spring, even though we are still immersed in the cold grip of Winter, we start edging towards that which stirs and awakens our senses.
This upcoming full moon is considered by some to be the coldest full moon, with nature still deep in hibernation. However, the moon, with its cycle renewing itself every month represents rebirth that is about to transpire. The moon in its fullness is ripe and has accumulated the past month’s heaviness waiting to shed it all together with us, as a new moon is born.
February begins to signal signs and stirrings of renewed life, even while nature is still nestled in its deep lull of rest.
To slowly and mindfully awaken from this Winter slumber without jarring ourselves, I was offered a bouquet of lavender. This wonderful floral scent is typically used to aid in sleep issues, and although it may seem backwards, it’s been offered in order to increase our vitality by raising the quality of our sleep before the vibrancy and energy of Spring is sprung on us.
Typically, seasons of transition, such as Spring and Fall, can drain us energetically, because our bodies may not be able to adjust to the changes as quickly.
Increasing the quality of our sleep now is a wonderful way to help start this transition, so come Spring, we are ready to blossom and sprout along with nature.
Lavender isn’t the only scent that was offered during my journey. Two essential oils were recommended for this season; ylang-ylang and jasmine.
Ylang-ylang is an aphrodisiac that can stir up and increase libido and promote a healthy sex life which will also offer many other health benefits, including deeper and more restful sleep. Jasmine also plays a hand in this with its euphoric effects, which can aid in confidence and relieving stress.
Both oils additionally help with many feminine matters such as PMS and are also great mood enhancers, which can help with anxiety and stress.
I would also recommend using the oils separately, as they are both very strong floral scents, and they may be overwhelming when used together.
As my guide and I were sitting side by side, looking over a beautiful landscape, she handed me a 5 and a 4. Intuitively I added them up. In numerology the number 9 signifies completion, which I felt signaled the completion of another cycle; seasonally and spiritually.
I did question why I was given two numbers that added up to a 9, instead of just the number 9 on its own, and realized that it’s because we still have time for this completion to occur.
We are edging towards the end of a cycle, just as we are edging towards the end of another season. The two numbers signify not being fully here nor there, but in transition towards a rebirth.
Like a snake we shed our old skin as we prepare to shed what we have been working up to letting go of. This is different for everyone, but as we work on the quality of our sleep we need to pay attention to our dreams, and the themes that have been cropping up in our lives since the new year.
We will be called to let go of quite a lot before Spring, so be prepared.
Some of you, who are ripe in terms of letting go of the old might even be ready to release that which no longer serves you this upcoming full moon.
This symbol of the snake is echoed with one of three crystals that I was called to mention.
Serpentine helps to ease fear with its calming effect. Nightmares are also eased through the help of this crystal, once again, aiding in the quality of sleep we attain, as mentioned in Simon and Sue Lilly’s book, “The Essential Guide to Crystals”.
Citrine was also called, and I was told she was the crystal to slowly start awakening our senses, gently with her uplifting energy, even though citrine is also relaxing – so her energy is more in line with the transition. Very soon we will be in our full, vibrant potential with all our confidence!
Lastly, I was offered a Moonstone, which signifies the introspection and inward reflection that awaits us during this upcoming full moon. With her we can tune into our intuition and harness the feminine energy of the moon, which I believe works wonders when used in tandem with the essential oils I mentioned before.
As my time with my guide started coming to a natural end and I was preparing to leave the Upper World, I asked her if there was a final message for those whom this article reaches, and I was told, “Ask and you shall receive.”
This is the time to start getting clear on what it is that we want from life, and knowing the universe is here to support us, as long as we ask for it.
