I love what I do because I'm always learning something and while hosting a great crystal workshop given by Kim Dowdell (www.visionforliving.co.uk) she reminded us of the AURA SOMA products and how they can be used to cleanse crystals.
She mentioned one in particular named SERAPIS BEY and yes, it's wonderful for cleaning the energy field of crystals and of course humans and pets. I thought I'd mention it now, not just for that but also in relation to the recent Lung and Grief class I gave (see link below) as it can help clear deep levels of suffering and inner conflict, freeing accumulated tears, helping to remove those poignant and sometimes painful, guy ropes to the past and be more accepting and content with 'what is'. ... it can really offer support and courage to cope with difficult situations and unexpected events.
So I offer it now in the hope that those who will benefit now will read this and resonate and those that don't, perhaps it will go into your memory banks and be retrieved some time in the future if you need it.
Perhaps it may be of use if you have recently lost a loved one or beloved pet.
I remember decades ago when they were first introduced at the Mind Body Spirit festival in London and we were all enthralled by the vibrancy of the colours. This is what was said about them:
Aura-Soma is an innovative approach to soul therapy that relies on bottles of dual-colored liquids that incorporate plant extracts, essential oils, and the energies and extracts of precious and semiprecious stones.
The energetic properties found in the liquids interact with the individual's aura to help support equilibrium in the body, mind, and spirit.
The practice of Aura-Soma was developed by Vicky Wall, who drew upon the mystical traditions of the Kabbalah and the medicinal and healing qualities of living plants that she learned from her father. Clairvoyant from childhood, she was able to perceive the subtle energies surrounding an individual. As an adult, this clairvoyant ability was amplified as her physical sight diminished and was eventually lost. Having been an apprentice to a pharmacist in an earlier phase of her life, her understanding of the significance of combining substances resurfaced as she created the first dual-coloured Equilibrium bottle. At first she did not know the significance of what she had discovered, but it soon became clear that the oils, extracts, and essences contained in these bottles had remarkable qualities to facilitate perception and self remembering.
