October 2023 Ascension Energies Update

October 2023’s theme: Transmuting Our Trauma

October’s Keywords: wisdom, intuition, personal transmutation

Hello Beautiful Soul!

If last month left you emotionally raw, bewildered, ungrounded, and off centre, then October’s Ascension energies offer you the chance to reclaim more balance and inner harmony.

During September we were cracked open to another level of emotional vulnerability, reactivity, trauma and emotional pain, and this caused many to bristle and bang up against each other

Now we move on from the fourth, Heart chakra that we worked with in September to the sixth chakra: the Mind, or Brow Chakra during October. So repressed emotions, wounding, trauma, and inner pain that arose can give way to the opportunity for us to use our minds for personal transmutation and deeper spiritual wisdom.   

Personal transmutation is the process of being with uncomfortable/undesirable feelings and experiences while loving yourself. It's about sitting in our discomfort versus reacting to one’s environment or those around us.

In healing anger, grief and sorrow in this way, we are not easily triggered; we are less reactive and can be more fully present with ourselves and others. We are able to clear the subconscious mind and make space for non-judgement and self-love.

This in turn allows us to not lose ourselves in the past or future, and therefore move in a new, intuitively guided direction. A direction that embraces karmic freedom and a stronger container for deepening connection with our souls.

Transmutation on this level is intense, often has subtle but profound shifts, and requires resilience, commitment and processing time. It is like turning lead into gold. October gives us this opportunity, as we shift into darker, introspective days and the Veil thins, to transmute our trauma. As we do this our wisdom grows and our intuition grows stronger.

The six chakra archetypes of the Sage and Alchemist anchor in this process of metamorphosis, so that we embrace a deeper sense of Oneness, Wholeness and  inner divinity.   

These two archetypes remind us that we have other ways of knowing. Divine guidance and the voice of the heart are speaking to us if we choose to listen. The Sage restores clear vision by giving us the opportunity to take our discernment and our intuition to a higher level. The Sage assures us that we already know the answer.

The Alchemist gives us the confidence to carry our inner transformation out into the world to create positive change. The Alchemist is showing us that each moment is an opportunity to grow, to show up differently, and to transform and be transformed.

Self-Mastery is ours to own, but first requires us to have right relationship with ourselves. As we do, we repair our outer relationships, and shift into co-creation with each other.

For more about the Sixth chakra, and how to work with the Sage and Alchemist please see my video! Also see my book and Oracle deck to dive deeper into the sixth chakra.

In service and divine liberation,

Cold and Flu Products to support your body during the Ascension Process

It’s that time of year again - the body is more prone to illness as the days grow darker, the Veil thins and the weather turns cooler in the northern hemisphere. And with continuous upgrades our bodies are going through tremendous cellular changes so many are going into October feeling fatigued and run down. The intensity and pace of life also increases, as the “fun” days of summer wane.

Covid is making its appearance this fall, albeit with less severity and symptoms for most. Covid carries a vibrational frequency of fear and control, which we are being challenged to release within ourselves. 

This month’s Ascension energy will continue to affect our adrenals, our digestion, and the endocrine and immune systems, so I have monthly specials on certain immune products to support you through this upgrade process!

Profound Immune tincture - A rich blend of herbs and mushrooms that has actions that support the immune system at the deepest level. The properties of the blend are especially effective at preventing infections and rebuilding the immune system to recover after a long, tough or recurring illness due to low immunity that cannot recover, or especially in rebuilding the body following pregnancy and delivery. Dosage 2 to 4 dropperfuls daily. For children 5 years to Adult. 

Thrive Immune tincture - This tasty liquid blend of intentionally-formulated herbs and spices is designed to support the body against illness and the effects of stress. Chock full of vitamin C and antioxidants, it also contains antiviral, antibacterial, and other immune-boosting ingredients. Safe to take all winter long as a preventative. Great for the whole family! Dosage: 1 dropperful twice daily, reduce in half for children under 12 years. For children 5 years to Adult. Also available in a tea version. 

Vira Blend tincture - Vira Blend helps to support your immune system throughout cold and flu season whenever you begin to feel it wane. Take if you begin to feel achy, flu-like and exhausted, it also expels the vibration of fear and low self-worth which is linked to viruses. A perfect staple for any herbal medicine cabinet. Ingredients: Echinacea Angustifolia, Echinacea Purpurea, Boneset, Bee Balm, Ginger, Hyssop, Olive Leaf, Usnea, Wild Indigo. Adult Dosage: 2 to 4 dropperfuls daily for at least a week. For children 6 and up use 1 to 2 dropperfuls daily.

Great for stomach flu and flu and cold respiratory issues. Ingredients: Cedar, Thyme, Licorice, Echinacea Augustafolia and Purpurea, Boneset, Goldenseal, Clove, Yarrow, American Ginseng, Rosemary. Adult Dosage: 2-3 tbsp per day when acutely ill, for up to 10 days.

Herbal Protection Throat Spray - this spray is my go to throughout the cold/flu season. I also take it travelling and frequently spray my throat while in airports and on planes. Great protection barrier against any respiratory or airborne illnesses.

All products are 20% off! (Except Thrive Immune which is BUY 1 GET ONE FREE)
