The New Year 2024 Essence: Transforming Negativity
$18.00 – $32.00
Devastated I wept for my world
As tears flowed through the night
Till my shell broke, revealing a pearl
Glistening in the bright light. — Naux Ner
In 2024, Transforming Negativity gently draws us into a deep interiority, where our connection with the River of Life serves as a counter-balance to the many dramas in our over-heated world. While we cannot single-handedly fix the world’s woes, perhaps the oyster’s ability to transform grit or parasites into beautiful pearls can offer timely inspiration.
The pearl-making process begins by attending the specific ‘grating elements’ closest to home—right under our skin. It takes courage and loving resourcefulness to face, and eventually embrace, the raw pain lodged deep within our psyches.
Rooted in the Great River, we find ways to nourish these tender, exposed parts of ourselves by listening carefully for exactly what is needed, then kindly providing it, moment by moment. Oysters do this by drawing forth nacre, a biochemical substance from their bodies to cloak the foreign object, layer after layer until a luminescent pearl emerges. Within the peaceful darkness of our inner sanctuary, our body-souls can also remember their elegantly simple, and utterly ingenious ways to transform negativity.
Breathing in—Wisdom gently rises, attracting and filtering for the truly life-affirming elements. Breathing out—we consciously release any weary habits associated with power-over dynamics, within ourselves and towards others. Finally, resting in quiet stillness, we let the ‘pearl of great price’—our Love and Wisdom—generously flow through us into the world.
The New Year 2024 combination includes: Hosta, Nasturtium, Red Lily, Aconitum (the key essence!), Delphinium, Preparing to Receive the Holy Fire, Crossing the Bridge, Balanced Power, Facing our Shadows, Free to Be, and Night Essence.
This year’s essence comes in an organza bag with a small booklet including the definition, Gaia’s message and three questions to ponder. A separate handout with all the individual essence definitions is also included in the package. Highlighting the phrases that resonate with your journey will help you appreciate and integrate the varied energies.
Gaia’s Message to Humanity for 2024:
(Intuitively selected from Gaia’s Invitation, Poems from the Sacred Earth)
Bring your distress to any of my temples —
forest, beach or garden.
Through your painful whispering
I hear the yearning of your heart.
In the holy silence you are safe.
let my beauty feed you
as you heart begins its emptying.
