My most sought after elixir was created over two days, from Lupercalia to Valentines. Since ancient times, folks have been honouring; love, attraction and sexuality near the Ides of February and these qualities lay at the roots of those two festivals. While often thought of as a celebration of couplehood, either in the polyamorous or monogamous sense, this is a perfect time to check in on a deeply personal, singleton level ~ How in love with Yourself are you? What healing around your sexuality does your inner self need? How have you wooed and pampered your soul lately?
Perhaps now is the time to fall in love with the wonderful being that is You. Take yourself out to dinner. Soak in a candlelit bath. Laugh at your witty jokes. Relish in your sensuality. Tantalize your tactile senses. And most of all, look inside the deep quiet parts of yourself, accept, forgive, love and bring into the light what is there. Embark on soul work. Honour your shadow aspects. Allow yourself to flourish as you were meant to and toss away any ‘old tapes’ that play. Love Thy Self. This elixir was intended to facilitate your process.
Take as needed when feeling low on self appreciation, when you need to renew the pledge to self care, feeling a loss or overdrive of sexual desire, when body image is an issue, when mourning a break up, feeling lonely or during concentrated inner working.
This elixir was lovingly prepared with:
Red Garnet: a commitment to yourself, with love, devotion, trust, courage and honesty. Facilitates release from anger, particularly toward oneself and brings emotional harmony. Balances sexual energy and libido, clears inhibitions and feelings of taboo.
Shiva Lingham: a highly symbolic egg shaped balance of the union between the feminine and masculine energy. It awakens kundalini and balances energy centers. Collected from the sacred healing banks of the Narmata river in India, Shiva Lingham facilitates being deeper in love with oneself and at peace within the core of your Being.
Rose Quartz: Pure support for our Heart with unconditional love, a very soothing and happy stone. It comforts and heals any wounds the heart has accumulated & dissolves stored energy from trauma. The Soul sighs with relief when it senses Rose Quartz energy as it intuitively knows healing has come with gentleness, forgiveness, compassion, kindness and tolerance.
Citrine: Citrine brings happiness, joy and optimism. It offers courage & self discipline, supports getting tasks done & matters settled. Great for uplifting mood and brings abundance, good fortune & feelings of generosity. Helpful with healing emotional trauma, sleep disturbances, and addictions.
