By Mark D'Aquila | Comments Off on Surviving Agitation and Overwhelm

Are you feeling tense, overwhelmed, or agitated? You are not alone. With the news of each new terror attack, toxic political move, archaic policy shift and the like our psyche and soul react. We are easily impacted by violence and dramatic changes both at home and abroad.  It is not uncommon for our energy system to contract in response to the abnormal times we live in. You may feel immune to all this but still operate with a general sense of unease regardless.

It is important for the nervous system to feel safe. As it helps us to feel calm, at peace and provides for a gentle sense of  okay-ness. In general there are some common reactions to this type of life stress.

Horned Bladderwort Flower Essence

By Mark D'Aquila | Comments Off on Horned Bladderwort Flower Essence

images-1Horned bladderwort is a carnivorous plant that grows in bogs, swamps and moist places. The Essence Alchemy Bladderwort flower essence was made in the Pine Barrens in Southern New Jersey. The Pine Barrens is a fascinating eco- system and the largest area of undeveloped land between NYC and Washington DC. It is also home to one of the largest aquifers in the world, holding trillions of gallons of pure water.

 

Horned Bladderwort Flower Essence – Seeing Through Deception

Horned bladderwort flower essence opens pathways to clear seeing. It helps to clarify perception. Perception deals with how we understand and interpret something. It is an important function of the ‘seeing process’. There are many things that can alter our perception and one of them is trauma, particularly trauma where the person has been lied to and been deceived. This essence helps clients who have been lied to and deceived in the past and end up attracting people who lie to them now. It is good for people who are deceived often and have a hard time perceiving the truth.

The trauma of distortion, deception and lies is pervasive. We seem to live in a world where the distortion of facts has become the norm. This creates a field of illusion and many people feel unable to perceive and trust the motives of others.

Horned bladderwort flower essence strengthens the conscious mind’s ability to pierce through lies and illusion. Horned bladderwort flower essence supports deep clarity, and helps us shed limiting beliefs, false beliefs, and old ways of being. It gives us the support we need to make clear decisions based on inner truth.

Horned Bladderwort flower essence helps us let go of fear and release suppressed emotions. It supports confidence and discernment. This essence will help expose any falsehood in a situation or relationship we are in. This is an appropriate essence for our time, when lies, ‘alternative facts’, and manipulation are rampant. Horned bladderwort will aid in healing trauma and preventing re-traumatization.

The Power of Intuition

By Mark D'Aquila | Comments Off on The Power of Intuition

“The quieter you become, the more you can hear.” Ram Dass

Over the Christmas/New Year’s holiday I spent 5 days in silent retreat. It is something I like to do each year. I find it helps me get clear, release the past and connect deeper with my inner wisdom. I find silence to be a priceless gift that offers a clear space to be able to hear my own quite voice within.

For the first 24 hours the silence can feel uncomfortable and awkward. Then as the mind settles a natural peace and inner knowing arises. In the silence I began to sense the world from a deeper place within. A strong feeling of interconnection, serendipity, and precognition became a natural part of my days. This ordinary yet seemingly esoteric experience I was having is called intuition.

Transitioning from the sanctuary of retreat to the ‘outside’ world I became aware of the noise. It is loud when humans come together. No judgement just an observation. On top of that we have billboards (visual noise), cell phones, texting, tweeting and so on (psychic noise) to contend with.

In a noisy world, the Intuition formula can enhance your life in a deep and authentic way. Being connected to your inner wisdom is enriching and empowering. I designed the Intuition formula to strengthen your connection with your inner wisdom. This potent blend of 6 flower essences supports inner certainty, clarity and a strong connection to your Higher Self.

The Intuition blend contains the following flower essences.

Beargrass: strengthens your ability to access inner wisdom

Bellflower: supports certainty and trust in your intuition

Blue Columbine: strengthens your connection with your higher self

Horned Bladderwort: helps you to see through lies and deception

Monkshood: supports clairvoyance and prognostication and spiritual trust

Queen Anne’s Lace: prevents distortion of your intuitive and psychic perceptions

The Soul of Home – Space Clearing to Honor the Home

By Mark D'Aquila | Comments Off on The Soul of Home – Space Clearing to Honor the Home

IMG_1028

Last week I was interviewed by Rebeka Muir of Every Day Seeker about the space clearing work I do. Listen to  Podcast on Space Clearing. Click Here

Space Clearing work allows us to shift the energy of our space. Large amounts of our time are spent indoors. And the quality of our indoor atmosphere impacts our energy, state of mind, and emotions. Our spaces are designed to keep us contained, safe and held. And, when our homes feel good inside we feel good. The Space Clearing work I teach is to honor the home and its inhabitants.

Visit the Registration Page.

Moods, emotions, illness, our patterns and other peoples leave a residue in our space. Energy patterns attract similar energy patterns. Heaviness attracts more heaviness as well as entities, dark energies and so on. Conversely light energy attracts its compliments, health, angelic presences, relaxation and so on. We live in a dynamic universe with much happening in the unseen worlds. There are energies to support us, guides, angels, devas and so on. And, there are energies of entropy, inertia, and disease which don’t support us.

Over the years as my personal space clearing work was developing I could sense it impacting my life in ways I did not expect. I noticed my work would flow better, relationships improve, sleep improve and business would pick up. Slowly I became clued into something deeper happening. As I began to honor the soul and soil of the place I spend the most time life flowed more smoothly.

Honoring the home is a way to consciously engage with the Soul of your home. On March 20th 2016, the Spring Equinox you are invited to learn how to conduct on space clearing for your home. When you sign up for this webinar you will receive the tools you need to begin Space Clearing immediately.

Tuition includes three 4 ounce Space Clearing Sprays, one 2 ounce Spray, a beeswax candle and a personal clearing formula. The webinar will be 90 minutes and includes  time for questions. You are encouraged to register early so the supplies can be mailed to you before the class begins.

Space Clearing Webinar

By Mark D'Aquila | Comments Off on Space Clearing Webinar

On March 20th 2016, the Spring Equinox Essence Alchemy is offering the first in many online classes. The first webinar is focused on Space Clearing with Flower Essences and Essential Oils.  Spring is the time of renewal. The time to shake the old off and conduct a deep cleaning of your personal space. The perfect time for a deep energetic cleanse.

For years I have been using flower essences and essential oils to shift the energetics of my personal space. For thousands of years humans have been using plant materials to create sacred and hygienic environments. During the March 20th webinar you will learn how to conduct your own cleansing ceremony to support your personal goals. We will go beyond the process of purification known as smudging and include a wide variety of flower essences and oils.

By Space Clearing we honor the soul of our home.  The Soul of our home or place of work is often forgotten for the sake of efficiency and orderliness. But, we can feel when we enter a neglected space. It can feel heavy, dull, or inert. This can happen in our own home as well. And, there are times we enter a space that is honored and cared for. That space feels lifted, sacred and healthy this to can happen in our homes as well.

Space clearing is part of an ancient tradition one we seem to have forgotten. Over the centuries Space Clearing has taken many forms with each form drawing on the healing energy of nature. The Space Clearing work I was taught and teach draws upon the life giving vibrations of the plant spirits. The process involves establishing a partnership with Nature and combining that with our active engaged participation.  has a profound healing on our homes and lives.

Please join me March 20th at 11am pst and learn to be a steward to the Spirit of you home. Tuition includes all the materials you need plus a few extra support tools.
