On an economic scale as much as emotionally and professionally.
A year that has shaken our deep-rooted beliefs.
In Traditional Chinese Medicine our deep-rooted beliefs are intimately linked with the Water energy principle. It is water that will flow always downwards. It is water as well which builds the base for organic life.
Putting into action the idea of mind and life mirroring each other, this year has made us aware of what is really useful and necessary.
Returning to our solid base in order to head off strong.
An essential oil that corresponds much to this image of strong roots empowering the flower is the Spikenard (Nardostachys jatamansis):
thick roots, fine stem, small flowers.
For having a good start into 2010, I recommend a 3-day cure:
1 drop of the essential oil of Spikenard onto the solar and cardiac plexus 3 times a day.
Prof. WABNER (www.etherischeoele.de) introduces this marvel as:
"The most precious of all balm oils in antiquity has been Spikenard."According to him it is mainly its strong calming effect are mainly due to the combination of sesquiterpenes.
Massaging it on the solar and cardiac plexus gives us a tripple benefit:
+ application close to the nervous plexus
It's quality as a balm oil are displayed in the fact that it is one of the few essential oils that may be applied directly onto the irritated psoriasis skin (omitting any area close to the eyes as being the general rule for the application of essential oils).
