LETTING GO OF FEAR

By Ruth Joy

At one time or another, we all have experienced fear -- from low-grade anxiety to terror. Fear can inhibit, paralyze, and profoundly affect the quality of our lives. Though fear can assist in helping us identify our desires and needs, it can prove debilitating unless we are able to release it. Fear prevents us from being fully alive and living our dreams. I wanted to find an essence to address all fears. The Angelic Kingdom responded with the creation of Freedom from Fear.

Freedom from Fear has proven to be one of our most popular essences. Many people have contacted me over the years with their stories and results. In the hopes that their experiences may inspire and assist others, I would like to share some of them with you. I am excited by the potential impact of living without fear. If we are no longer afraid, just imagine what we could create in our lives!

"I’ve never been without fear... Since taking the Freedom from Fear essence, the majority of fear is gone ... What a relief and blessing." D.K.

A few years ago I received a call from a woman who had been given a bottle of Freedom from Fear. She told me she had lived with panic attacks for 18 years. She said she also had agoraphobia. She told me that, after taking Freedom from Fear, she was able to go to Disney World with her family. She was free of fear! She called to express deep and profound gratitude for this essence.

During the time Freedom from Fear came into my life, I was having panic attacks, was under a great deal of stress, and experiencing a lot of fear. Within days of taking this essence, all my fear was gone! It was incredible! I have not had a panic attack since. At that time, the results were so profound that I thought I would never experience fear again. What I have realized since is that new situations may cause anxiousness or concern, such as a move, job change etc; and as we heal and grow, we touch new layers of ourselves that may once again need the support of Freedom from Fear.

Freedom from Fear combines well with other essences. Judy Springer, an essence practitioner, writes, "I’m finding the combination of Freedom from Fear with Shame Free (with flower essences) to be quite powerful for survivors of abuse (all kinds)." Another person concurs, "Freedom from Fear and Shame Free have been a rich source of support, healing, transformation. Many thanks to you and the Spirit and Angel team!" M.M.

In another case, a practitioner writes about giving a colleague Freedom from Fear because he had grown up in an abusive, chaotic home; and fear had been creating problems for him in expanding his practice. She reports that it assisted him in ending an unhealthy relationship. She then combined Shame Free and Freedom from Fear and noted he’s been much calmer. The addition of Shame Free seemed to help with his fears of being judged.

Freedom from Fear with the essence Letting Go can be helpful in getting through a trying situation. By releasing the fear, it becomes easier to "let go" and find greater peace and trust.

Another person states, "I started using Rejuvenation, Freedom from Fear, and Hook-up formulas because I had experienced great amounts of exhaustion, fear and disconnectedness for many years. I’m doing so much better now! I totally trust the Angelic Essences I take are helping me heal levels I’ve previously been unable to reach." D. K.

Sharing stories of essence results with animals is particularly inspiring, because their responses are not influenced by what the bottle or practitioner says it will do. We had a cat that was traumatized as a kitten and was extremely skittish. We would often not see her for days, as she would hide behind the washer and dryer during the day; and when everyone was asleep, she would venture out to eat. Within one week of having a few drops of Freedom from Fear placed in her water dish, she was joining us in the living room and rubbing on us to pet her. It was remarkable! To this day I am so grateful for the transformation this essence brought to her life.

Yolanda LaCombe, an essence practitioner, describes a very challenging case of a Coyote mix that had been "probably abused sexually and ritually" before coming to her. This animal was compromised physically and emotionally. She had a weakened immune system and liver function and suffered from blackened, itchy skin. Yolanda worked with this animal for years, using a variety of methods. She was, with the help of essences, seeing some improvement. As she writes, "I… acquired several of your wonderful Angelic Essences, including the Freedom from Fear. I returned home and gave Lady this essence straight from the stock bottle. That same day, her gait while being let outside changed dramatically. Rather than slinking around and backing away if her companion wanted out at the same time, she pranced around in tight circles in front of us. …Lady and her companion Lovey are cuddling...Lady is more present when we have company or clients, and there have been some very tender exchanges with each of our three cats." Lady exemplifies the challenges and difficulties of those who have experienced abuse and the powerful, positive changes that can come when we eliminate the fear in our lives.

Gary Mason, the founder of The Flower Essence Pharmacy wrote, "Upon opening the box of Angelic Essences, I was bathed with a unique, sweet light. My clients and I have experienced a major shift with the Freedom from Fear. It’s very fast acting; I highly recommend it." Freedom from Fear has been a blessing for many. It is with much gratitude that we have been given and can offer this essence to you.

With thanks to all who have shared their stories.

UNDERSTANDING THE INDIGO CHILDREN AND ENERGIES

By Ruth Joy

Children bring us many blessings, challenges and opportunities to learn. We are gifted with the awesome opportunity to influence these beings and to be influenced by them. I believe all children are precious and offer unique opportunities for us to learn and grow with and from their presence. We are blessed as the children who are coming to us now are filled with new energies and consciousness that are greatly needed for us here on earth.

A few years ago I was exposed to the concept of “Life Colors” and the Indigo children and was informed that two of my three boys are of the Indigo Life Color. This information assisted me greatly as I realized that much of what had been unique about them, and a challenge to their teachers and to me as a parent, were the same gifts that they carried as Indigo children. Like many parents, I sought out the best schooling situations I could find, took parenting classes, did counseling, supported their activities, and explored ways to meet their and my needs, yet much remained a mystery. I think I did pretty well as a parent, but was just feeling my way through their childhood, experimenting until I would find what worked with them in each given situation. Some of my most successful moments were the results of intuitive “dumb luck”. Having the information on Indigo children assisted me greatly and gave me an understanding and perspective that I found helpful as a parent.

Now that my children are grown, I hope to share this information with others so they do not have to raise their children without the awareness of who they are and the support essences can provide. There is so much we can do to support the unique beings our children are and take care of ourselves in the process. I marvel at how well my boys and I did, but do wish I knew then what I know now. I think it would have helped us all. Through working with other Indigo children, who have needed particular energies that were not yet available on our planet, the Indigo/Gateway series of essences were brought through by the Angelic Realm. Additional Angelic Essences were added to these to create a kit to support these children and assist those who live with, work with, or who just wish to attune themselves to these children, their energies and the Indigo consciousness. Some of these essences are mentioned in this article and are applicable to both parents and children. More complete descriptions will be found on the following page.

The Indigo color has been around for many years, but has only been showing up as a Life Color since around the late nineteen seventy’s. Now over ninety percent of the children being born are Indigo. Because of the unique attributes of this color and the number of people who now have this as a Life Color, public awareness is increasing. If an Indigo blesses us by their presence, we may find that using the ways our parents brought us up are not very effective. As these children age and enter our schools and other systems it is becoming evident that our Indigo children do not fit the models and systems we have created here. They operate beyond these systems. Since these old systems do not meet their needs, they can generate frustration and confusion for these children and for those of us who are trying to hold onto what we know. The essence ENTERING THE NEXT DIMENSIONAL SHIFT (Indigo/Gateway #2) can assist us to shift out of old systems and paradigms to support these children and our own awakening. The essence LETTING GO assists us and our children by increasing our ability to turn things over to a Higher Source, bringing freedom, trust and more powerful results that we could have imagined.

What sets these children apart is their vibration, their consciousness and their evolved spirit. The essence DOORWAY TO HIGHER FREQUENCIES (Indigo/Gateway #1) brings these higher frequencies to earth to be embodied and anchored here. By tuning into these newly available frequencies increased awareness, expanded consciousness and a greater connection to these beings is available. They are old and wise souls. They often have a greater understanding of who they are and their place here than many of us. The essence AWARENESS WITH LOVE (Indigo/Gateway # 3) brings to us the experience of higher consciousness and love. In Love we recognize and honor these children. With Awareness we understand and remember who we all are in our totality - our Soul. The Indigo children have come, to assist us and this planet in our next steps of spiritual growth. They have a propensity towards being psychic, and they know existence to be one of harmony, self respect, cooperation, unlimited love and self-expression. They are confused by our lack of respect for ourselves and others. They know better, and know they know better than we do. They do not understand us, the way we do things, and often feeling like “fish out of water”. The essence OPENING TO/EMBRACING EARTH INCARNATION can assist these children in grounding, embracing and enjoying this physical life experience. These children do not like to be placed in boxes. They will challenge us to look at them and treat them as individuals. These children ask for genuine respect from us, their teachers, elders and friends. Because these children come into this life with a very developed intelligence they are often uninspired and bored in our educational system. The essence INSPIRATION can assist by connecting them with a higher source of inspiration, stimulating and challenging their intellect, and engaging their creativity, enthusiasm and aliveness.

With their higher and finer vibrational level they may have physical sensitivities, and differing emotional needs. The essence GATEWAY TO TRUTH, PASSION, PURPOSE, HOPE (Indigo/Gateway #4) can support them by bringing peace, acceptance, greater contentment and hope; healing the emotional body, aligning them to their original soul print, and reconnecting them to their passion and purpose. Physically, they have more refined systems and energies that require a different approach than traditional medicine. They are often misdiagnosed and medicated because they do not fit in the traditional educational structure. Many of these children, due to their energies and different attributes are often mistakenly diagnosed with ADD and ADHD. We are being challenged to expand our awareness and develop alternative methods of raising and caring for these children. Essences have proven to be an effective alternative to medication in assisting these children with their focus and energy among other things. The essence SOLID CENTER/PEACEFUL HEART supports being centered, remaining grounded and calm. It stimulates inner peace and greater ease and acceptance.

As parents, teachers and community members of these children, we have much to learn. It is our task to listen to them as the wise beings that they are, yet as parents to lovingly guide them in this world. They will come across many things and people that will try to invalidate them since they do not fit into our old structures. FREEDOM FROM FEAR will assist us with any anxiety we may have about these children and will support our children to fully become who they are, not holding back from fear of judgment or rejection. It is our job to show support for who they are as we teach them about this world. They will be the ones guiding it through the next major transition. We need to listen to them. Our children are not the only ones needing our understanding and support. As parents, we need these too. Years ago I learned the importance of addressing my need for healing and awakening, for my children's sake as well as my own. I saw as I took responsibility for my own healing and growth my children also learned and grew. There was also less risk of my projecting my unresolved feelings and issues onto them. They realized that what I needed to heal had nothing to do with them. As parents and caregivers, we are human and if we are not getting our needs met, we cannot meet the needs of another. A person who is getting their needs met has more inner resources to share. We are encouraged to use essences for ourselves, to support the parents, teachers and caregivers as well as children. The essence MOTHER MOON/MOTHER MARY stimulates deep compassion within us for our children, ourselves and others. It opens our hearts, helping us to relate to our experiences from a place of love.

Indigos are here to show us tomorrow. To lead us into the coming age. Our children are our gifts. They are the gifts of life to itself. They are living proof of the deep love, support and commitment to us and to the Earth from our Creator. Life can be challenging, parenting can be challenging, and teaching can be challenging. We are exposed to many things that ask us to go beyond ourselves and beyond what we know. These children’s presence in our lives is calling us to become more than we have known. The essence GATEWAY OF COMPLETION (Indigo/Gateway #5) integrates these new energies and awareness in our lives, so we can join our children, leading the way. In our culture it is easier and habitual to look at someone who displays behavior or tendencies that differ from us as challenged or difficult. What we are saying to you is they bring opportunity. JOYFUL EXPANSION essence helps us to remember that our children herald a new beginning and hope for us and our planet. It assists us by bringing joy to all our experiences. As parents we have a responsibility, not only to raise our children, but also to raise ourselves to be the best that we can be. As humans we are challenged to look at ourselves, to what stimulates us that we need to heal. It is not necessary to physically have children in our lives to benefit from these energies and the awareness and change in vibration that they can bring. These essences are for us all.

SHAMANIC ESSENCES; GIFTS FROM OUR ANIMAL FRIENDS

By Ruth Joy

Shamanic Essences are profound gifts from the animal kingdom, much vaster than what we have known before. To try to convey what these are, I know of no better way than to start at the beginning...

...One day I was directed to make an essence of an eagle. As with messages that are that clear and strong, I knew I needed to follow it. As I thought about how to go about filling this directive, I reflected on how to make animal essences, and some of the animal parts I have as possible sources of an energetic imprint. Almost immediately this thought was squelched by the realization that using a portion of an animal, any animal, would limit the essence to the evolutionary development of that animal. For example, in making an essence of a homo-sapien, I could take an energetic imprint of myself or another person and that essence would then be limited by our development. Something greater and more fully encompassing had to be used.

I consulted the Animal Kingdom and realms beyond my own. I was told not only was it possible, but how to go about co-creating these essences with care to include all aspects of the animal and animal family. These essences were made to include the group mind of the animal, all the evolutionary elements including the future potential of this animal, as well as the animal in all dimensions and all time, with all its gifts and attributes. Each animal grouping directed and guided me through the making process. Each one was totally unique.

I learned about each animal families consciousness and know there is much more to learn. I learned that our frog friends originated from another planet and have traveled not only to earth, but to other planets as well. I watched the animals manifest incredible focus and abilities and then return to behavior that would more typify my experiences with them. Some of the energies brought me to tears; all were awe inspiring.

It was made clear at the time that these essences were not to be defined in the traditional sense, for they operate so individually and can provide more than our current awareness can hold. I have found that each of these animal essences bring to the individual that which is most needed. Their vastness manifesting in the range of experiences people are having.

I am deeply grateful for the gifts these animals have brought to us and pray that through their manifestation we will not only gain much from our animal friends, but also will in turn deepen our respect, understanding, and love for them.

Animals give to us and we have not always met them with gratitude and respect. Now they are sharing with us even more. Many of these species are calling out for us to become conscious, to understand and live our inter relatedness. We have abused and exploited many of the animal kingdom and yet it is with compassion that they reach out to us again and offer their energies to assist us to heal, to shift our consciousness and to create a better world. Their gift is awe inspiring. I am touched by their willingness to give and by their compassion.

They give to us unconditionally with the hope that we will listen and use their offering with love and consciousness. I am awed, touched, humbled and inspired by what has and is happening, and for the ability to be a small part of bringing these to you. I pray that you will use them well and that you will use them. Out of deep love and respect for all the animals that have and continue to participate in this process, I say Thank-you.

We offer these for the benefit of all.

CREATE A JOY-FILLED HOLIDAY SEASON

By Ruth Joy and the Angelic Essence™ Team

Fall is here and we begin the approach to the "holiday” season. This time of year can bring an enormous mixture of feelings and experiences. We look to this time of year to reflect on our past and plan our future. We look to it to connect with our friends and family. We look to it to fill ourselves with something; something intangible, something the holidays seem to promise. It can be a time of joy and sadness. As we attempt to connect with the specialness of the season, we may cut ourselves off from our needs, desires and aliveness. How can this time of expectations and stress be one of celebration and fulfillment? Fortunately the Angelic Kingdom has provided many essences to support us through this time of year and all it brings.

Our sojourn begins with Thanksgiving. An event that appears benign yet can present us with untold emotions. Thanksgiving. The time of "Pilgrims and Indians”, of turkey dinners and family gatherings. Time for a trip, a few days off, and the beginning of the Christmas sales. Thanksgiving. What is it? Is it time to feed the poor, to share another huge dinner with family and friends, and to take a deep breath before we head down the stretch to the end of another year? Or is it the time to slow down, reflect on and celebrate what we are grateful for? It can be all of these and more. As we focus on ‘Thanksgiving’, what are we thankful for? "One of life’s greatest gifts is the experience of gratitude.” -RP. It is true that when we experience gratitude, the experience of our lives change. The circumstances that may bother us diminish and our hearts become more full. The Angelic Essence BLESSED BE can assist us in experiencing and acknowledging the blessings we have received. It initiates the experience of Gratitude, and begins the change in consciousness from that of lack, to recognizing the abundance of blessings that exist. It brings to awareness the key steps to increased manifestation and co-creation. With this essence, consciousness can become more focused and therefore intention can become more powerful. There is the potential for greater altruism with this essence, for when one feels abundant, the desire to share increases. Since this essence connects the group mind and focuses intention, it is valuable for use at family and community gatherings.

We come into this world seeking love and joy. We reach for that which satisfies and fulfills us. We literally put all we find into our mouths to taste and explore. Somewhere along the line we stopped reaching. We become complacent in our situations and accept the limitations that we feel. We no longer give ourselves permission to explore by touch, to reach for ALL we want; and to feel fully whether we receive it or not. We become ‘Mature’. We reason. We are appropriate. We have lost some of our aliveness. As we grow, we begin to pull in, to pull back. We limit ourselves by what we have learned, what we have been told, and by the beliefs we have embraced. There is nothing inherently wrong with this, but what are we missing? What are we living without? Are we instead living out of obligations, ideas, concepts? Where are WE in all of this? MOTHER MOON MOTHER MARY essence supports us by stimulating deep love and compassion for all, including ourselves. Compassion for what we perceive as the shadow as well as light. This essence opens our hearts and stimulates acceptance and compassion for the choices we have made and the experiences we have had. We are able to see the big picture and experience it through love without limits. It helps us to reconnect with ourselves, with love for ourselves and love for all. HEALING THE HEART OF THE SOUL essence brings to us deep healing on a soul level. It assists us by bringing compassion, mercy, and deep love, with the knowledge of what the soul needs. It is for healing the wounds of the past in this lifetime and beyond. It brings a return to wholeness. CREATING REALITIES expands previously set boundaries and limitations. It strengthens and develops the imagination to create the life experiences we want.

With the arrival of the holidays we have the potential to lose ourselves further in the obligations, activities and habits of our ideas, desires, and upbringing. We may choose activities and focus that may not feed our souls or provide us with meaning. During these times sadness, emptiness, maybe even resentment may prevail. COMING HOME essence assists us by bringing us "home” to ourselves, our Spirit, our Higher self, our deeper knowing, and our Source. This essence is for those who feel disconnected from themselves and their Spirit, who have gotten distracted in worldly affairs. It brings a deep sense of peace, balance, transformation and Angel love into life's experiences. As many of us gather with physical family and community this time of year, this essence supports us to remain connected to ourselves. With so many obligations, internal and external, we may wonder where is the time for me? What do I want and need during this time? The Angelic Essence LIVING ONE’S TRUTH opens one to knowing their personal Truth, even if we have been disconnected from it due to past life trauma or present life repression. It gives the courage and conviction to live one’s Truth and to step more fully into one’s personal power. This essence assists in finding ways to respect others desires and needs without compromising one’s own. It inspires authenticity in action and deed.

During the busyness of the holidays and New Year, we often don’t take the time to feel, to smell, relax, enjoy. We don’t take the time to go within and reflect, to dream, dream our futures, and to touch and nurture the deepest realms of our being. SWEETNESS is an essence that supports us by bringing ‘sweetness’ into all life experiences. Though many situations related to the holidays can feel challenging, and hard, this essence provides ease and respite in the form of gentleness, tenderness, nurturing. Feelings move through us with ease and acceptance. Resistance is washed away, taking away tension; like an inner massage. It energizes, harmonizes and promotes gratitude. When life feels hard, this is the essence to take.

For increased busyness and stress the essence REJUVENATION can create a state of peace, relaxation, clarity, and integration. We can experience being "the calm in the midst of the storm”. This essence supports one to step fully into who they are with ease, openness, and non-judgement. It can provide the experience of letting go, deep relaxation, and of allowing feelings to present themselves and be released. REJUVENATION melts the armor and tension we wear and carry and rejuvenates us from a deep psychic and cellular level. It gives a person permission to take a break, relax and integrate fully. It works as a first aid remedy for those stressed, who need a break, who need deep nourishment and aren’t able to or don’t know how to get it. TIME PEACE is the essence to use when we feel caught up in the limitations of time. During the holidays we may feel there is ‘so much to do and not near enough time’. This essence creates a deeper understanding and ease with the element of time, which then eases stress.

The situations and experiences we find ourselves in during the holidays are often the results of our minds attempt to fulfill our deeper needs. These may be needs that we are unaware of, that connect us to our core values and beliefs. It may be the desire to heal family relationships, to meet our need for connection, intimacy, and inclusion. It may be that we need to know we are providing for our families, for our children and in doing so we can perceive of ourselves as a "good” parent or person. The holidays are a time when many of these needs come to the forefront. We strive to fulfill these often at our own expense. FREEDOM FROM FEAR essence supports us by eliminating anxiety, fear and anticipation. It helps us to identify the cause of fear and release it. Fear can stop us from doing what we want and being fully who we are by influencing our choices. This essence eliminates fear, thus preventing it from inhibiting, overwhelming and influencing us.

To become aware of our needs and to consciously choose to fulfill our needs and wants in ways that care for ourselves and others is cause for celebration. It is when we do things out of ‘obligation’ or feeling we ‘should’, we ‘need to’, or we ‘have to’, that our life energy is diminished. In these times we have choice. KNOWING assists us by increasing our awareness on all levels. Bringing a broader understanding, increased possibilities, and compassionate understanding. We can see what is before us, reflect on the results of our choices in the past and decide on our focus this time.

Life calls us to live in balance, in harmony. The Navajo call it "The Beauty Way”. Essences can support us to live in balance and harmony, to find our Truth and to experience life in joy and love. Though the seasons continue to turn, and holidays will come and go, we can live our lives as we choose; finding joy, harmony and love in our experience. The essence HARMONY, harmonizes all situations and events, creating harmony within, without and among all things. This state of harmony frees us from internal conflict, generating the experience of freedom, peace and increased gratitude. JOYFUL EXPANSION essence opens our hearts, filling them with joy and unbounded happiness; bringing peace contentment and joy. LOVE opens the heart to Love beyond all prior knowing. It heals the hearts, souls and spirits of all who inhabit the earth now, and brings us into closer harmony with the Higher Source of Love. It is powerful and transformative. This essence is experiential not conceptual. One may feel enveloped by the soft energy of love. LOVE-LIGHT ESSENCE opens the crown and heart to receive higher vibrational frequencies of love. It raises consciousness attuning it to the frequency of higher love. It generates and increases all forms of love. In the state of love, things that we may not normally consider gifts are seen as such. Love opens our hearts and minds. It allows us to experience gratitude at a new level. Love is the greatest healer and the greatest gift. The essence GRACE provides ‘Grace’ in all things. It is the gift for balancing and harmonizing all energies bringing peace inner harmony and greater ease to all situations. It is energizing and transforming. ANGELIC HEALING BALANCING AND INTEGRATION essence assists in all life circumstances. This essence carries energy that is a key component to the healing process. It promotes balance, for in being out of balance we become susceptible to many forms of dis-ease. The integration component in this essence is for assisting in the integration on all levels including, but not limited to the mental, emotional, physical, spiritual and planetary. This can be added to any other essence as a helpful addition by supporting the work and intention of the original essence. It also provides amplification, cooperation and integration of the various energies within a given essence blend. It is a universally applicable essence that compliments all forms of healing work.

As we continue through the holiday season the icons representative of this time surround us. Angels begin to make their presence more known. They become part of the seasonal decorations, and the cards we exchange. Could it be that when we are in the traditional time of stress and needing the most support that they are making their presence known in innocuous ways? Their visible presence may be a reminder to us that we are fully supported. We are not alone in these lives. They provide us with these loving energies/essences. They are here without judgment for they know that it is our life and our choice to experience life the way we choose. They are here to provide support so that we can live with awareness, choose what we want, and enjoy the moments we have been given. We are blessed.

It is with much gratitude and appreciation that the angels come to us and assist us. And it is with much gratitude and appreciation that we can receive their loving assistance. From the Angels: "It is presented to you that these coming holidays will bring to each of you all that your hearts desire. That you can have the experiences you wish without compromising your needs. That life can be full, meaningful and can be a celebration. We support and honor you in this. We have created Angelic Essences to support you and your loved ones in all of life as well as the holiday season. We close with the essence CELEBRATION, the motto of the holidays. This essence increases the potential of this time being a true celebration. It increases fun, joy and laughter. From this place of fullness in Love and expanded awareness come the effervescent energies and feelings of joy, love, exuberance, laughter, hope and optimism -- and beyond. Pure celebration at what is and what is experienced. The celebration after the journey or job well done. Full satisfied, gloriously happy and content.

May these qualities and experiences fill your holidays.
With blessings to you, The Angelic Essence team".

GRATITUDE, FOR THE EXPERIENCE OF LIFE'S ABUNDANCE

By Ruth Joy

"Life is a banquet and most people are starving themselves".
-Auntie Mame

One of the most powerful experiences we can have it the experience of gratitude. When we feel gratitude our hearts open, our vibration raises, and we are closer to our angels and higher selves. Gratitude is a gift we can give ourselves daily. We can do this by focusing our attention to the blessings that exist in each of our lives. We are all gifted with so much. From the life we are given to the glorious sunrises and sunsets that are ours to enjoy each day. We are not, nor have ever been, forgotten or unloved. We have a bountiful universe around us and pleasures great and small that are ours to notice and appreciate. When we are busy in our daily lives, we often do not take the time to notice the small gifts that are in each moment; a smile, the sky, a birds song, a pet, the air as it fills our lungs, the sun against the leaves on the trees. There is so much to notice and appreciate. Truly, it is the "attitude of gratitude" that is the greatest gift that we can receive. For when we look to our lives with appreciation, no matter the hardships that we have endured, we see that there are indeed things to be grateful for. If we can experience gratitude, we are indeed blessed in our lives. When we are grateful, love, acceptance, and peace are ours. Sometimes the experience of gratitude is elusive, sometimes it spills over into every experience.

The following are some Angelic Essences available that can support our experience of gratitude. These essences can assist us in more fully enjoying and acknowledging the blessings in our lives. Blessed Be: This is the abundance formula. It assists with the recognition of the blessings in one's life. It initiates the experience of Gratitude, one of life's greatest gifts, and begins the change in consciousness from that of lack, to recognizing the abundance of blessings that exist. It brings to awareness and supports the key steps to increased manifestation and co-creation. With this essence, consciousness can become more focused and therefore intention will become more powerful. People can become more altruistic with this essence, for when one feels abundant, the desire to share increases. Since this essence connects the group mind and focuses intention, it is valuable for use at family and community gatherings.

Coming Home:This essence is for supporting our "coming home" to ourselves, our Spirit, our Higher self, our deeper knowing, and our source. This essence is for those who feel disconnected from themselves and their Spirit, who have gotten distracted in worldly affairs. It also supports our coming home to a physical family, or community. It brings a deep sense of peace, balance, transformation and angel love into life's experiences.

Harmony: We can all use harmony in our lives. This essence harmonizes all situations and events. A state of harmony frees us from internal conflict, supporting us to have an increased experience of gratitude. It creates harmony within, without and in all things.

Love-Light Essence: This essence opens the crown and heart to receive higher vibrational frequencies of love, giving greater awareness and assistance in experiencing higher love. It raises consciousness to attune it to the frequency of love, generating and increasing all forms of love. In the state of love, things that we may not normally consider gifts are seen as such. Love opens our hearts and minds. It allows us to experience gratitude at a new level. Love is the greatest healer and the greatest gift. The capacity to feel love is worthy of our gratitude.

It is with much gratitude and appreciation that we can offer these and other essences you.

Please contact us with your experiences and feedback. We love to hear them! These essences are offered to you with pure intention and heart, and for the benefit of all sentient beings. Thank you for using Angelic Essences.
