Frequently Asked Questions
What is a chakra?
Literally speaking, the word “chakra” from Sanskrit translates to “wheel” or “disk,” but references a spiritual energy center within the human body, of which there are seven main centres along the spine, and through the neck and the crown of your head.
There are thousands of chakras however Senses of the Soul products focus on the earthly chakras (1-7) and the upper chakras (8-12) that affect our soul’s purpose.
The concept of these energy centres has been explored by cultures and civilizations for thousands of years: Hindu, Tibetan, African, Egyptian, Andean, Incan, Cherokee, and the Mayan civilizations. They each correspond to specific organs as well as physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual states of being and influence all areas of your life.
Senses of the Soul products work on one or more specific chakras. See each product description for more details.
What is an archetype?
Archetypes are universal projections or mirrors of all emotional qualities which come from the core of human experience – strength and weakness; love and hate; courage and fear; darkness and light. They are invisible patterns of behaviour ingrained in the human psyche, manifesting in both the individual and collective experience.
Senses of the Soul Herbal Elixirs, and the Senses of the Soul flower Flower and Gem Essence products correspond to different archetypes that are universal to each of us.
What is soul purpose?
The unique way that each individual feels compelled to impact his or her own life, the lives of others, via acts of earthly service.
What are the Senses of the Soul?
The access point to our authentic selves: our darkness (or negative archetypes), our inner sparkle or light (positive archetypes), our passion, and our sense of purpose.
What is the collective unconscious?
The part of the unconscious mind that is shared by humans. It is the product of ancestral experience and contains collective memories, instincts, and common experiences. Archetypes are part of this as universal symbols that transcend separateness in human thinking.
We are each connected with All That Is, cosmic consciousness, Akashic records, and ancient wisdom. Senses of the Soul products, along with the current Ascension Process (see below), help support you to re-remember these connections and activate higher consciousness.
What is the vibrational field?
Everything is energy, and the vibrational field is the dynamic and interconnected frequency system that contains and directs energy in all forms. It exists on an individual level and at a universal level; it is a system (or many systems) within a system.
What is the Ascension Process?
Ascension is the process of spiritual awakening that moves you into a higher level of consciousness. When this happens, you may experience some ascension symptoms that are psycho-spiritual and physical. Through the process of ascension, your vibrational field is clearing, expanding, re-attuning and your frequency is becoming lighter. Your soul’s purpose, your truth and your authenticity are engaged and manifest more easily in your earthly life.
What are flower essences and gem elixirs?
Flower essences and gem elixirs are aqueous infusions of fresh flowers and gemstones, and sunshine (some are made with moon energy). They consist of water that contains the bioenergetic imprint of the flowers. This energetic imprint travels through the body’s acupuncture meridians, like an acupuncture treatment without needles.
When taken internally or applied externally, flower essences and gem elixirs work through the chakra energy channels to shift our state of mind and emotional being.
What is the difference between a flower essence, gem elixir and herbal elixir?
Traditionally flower essences and gem elixirs are made or water, alcohol and the flower or gem’s bioenergetic imprint. They do not have any herbal products in them, whereas the herbal elixirs do contain liquid herbal medicine. Herbal products tend to work more on symptoms held in the physical body, versus flower essences and gem elixirs tend to balance the mental and emotional states which are held in the body/mind and vibrational field.
What should I expect when using the flower essence and gem elixir, and the herbal elixirs?
In the short term, you start to experience less irritation. Everything’s smoother. The stress and fear dissolves and anchors you in more authentic emotions. You sleep more deeply so that you can process shadow. Any strong emotions get softer and lessen over time.
Long term: your inner landscape changes, and your outer landscape starts to reflect that new reality back to you. You may get out of relationships that don’t work, form new ones that do, start new career paths or even do things you used to be afraid of. Everyone’s experience is slightly different, but all experience more alignment with one’s purpose, truth and authenticity.
