Cycles within Cycles


February seems to have zipped by in an even shorter time than usual this year and it came as somewhat of a surprise to find ourselves greeting the arrival of March last weekend in the welcome, if rather short-lived spring sunshine that it brought with it. Despite the rather inhospitable weather over recent weeks the spring flowers are magically coming into bloom, heralding the annual miracle of rebirth in the northern hemisphere, as the returning light of spring calls all of nature to reawaken and regenerate.

Welcoming the promise of spring and looking forward to the warmth of summer made us reflect on just how many cycles affect our life here on Earth. We are so accustomed to some of these cycles that we tend to take their existence for granted. The continuing cycle of night and day for instance or the cycle of birth and death with all the stages in between that we each go through as part of our earth walk. This cycle of life is mirrored for us each year in the annual cycle of our earthly seasons. 

We are also subject to the influence of the many cosmic cycles that take place within our universe and these we are generally much less familiar with since many of them take thousands of years to complete, however they still have a very profound affect on all life on Earth. One of the most influential of these cycles is the 26,000 year cycle known as the Greater Year. As the Earth spins on its axis it wobbles rather like a giant spinning top, taking just short of 26,000 years to complete one wobble. For approximately half of this 26,000 year cycle we on Earth experience a fall in consciousness, rather like falling asleep, as the wobble takes us away from the great Central Sun at the centre of the galaxy, then for the remaining 13,000 years we experience a rise in consciousness as we move back towards the centre again.

Currently we are at the exciting phase in this cycle where all of life on our planet is beginning to awaken and remember as we start once again to go back up the spiral of consciousness. Rather like the bulbs in our gardens in the March sunshine we are all stirring and awakening as we feel the incoming light that this part of the cycle brings. It would all be very simple if we were able to respond to this natural cycle unconsciously as nature does each year, however as we are discovering it is not so easy. Much as we might desire to awaken there are parts of ourselves that are afraid and wish to stay safely within the comfort zones of our dark world. However the light is relentlessly flooding into the planet seeking out those dark places that need illumination to be able to realign with Source.

The energy this month will be supporting us to heal disharmony in our outer relationships by honouring the reflections mirrored to us by our families, work colleagues or others in our social community.

Healing Relationships

March this year will bring us more opportunity to seek out those parts of ourselves that need to come more into the light and love of awareness for us to move upward in consciousness. The energy this month will be supporting us to heal disharmony in our outer relationships by honouring the reflections mirrored to us by our families, work colleagues or others in our social community. Recently we have found ourselves challenged over and over again to remember that what we see in another, whether we perceive it as ‘good’ or ‘bad’, is simply a reflection of something within ourselves. We know how difficult it can be to remember this simple truth when conflict of some kind appears in your outer world so we felt we would like to remind you all, so that you can make the most of the opportunities this month will bring. As we each create peace and harmony within the relationship we have with ourselves so we will see that same peace and harmony reflected in our outer world. We will be doing our best to honour our reflections in the mirror of life this month and send our blessings to all those who might help us to do so.

Flower Essences


So which essences might be a helpful support for us all as we look into that mirror this month?

When a person or situation ‘pushes our buttons’ we can often find ourselves experiencing strong emotions. When this is the case, a well-chosen combination of Bach Flower Remedies can often be helpful first aid to bring about enough balance for us to start to gain a higher perspective on the situation. Also very helpful here is Fuchsia from the Karmic Essences which will very quickly help to release emotions such as anger and fear from the heart leaving you in a much more balanced state.

Many of the patterns that are currently being triggered within us are very deep-rooted patterns that we have carried from lifetime to lifetime. When this is the case it can take some time to see the truth of what is being reflected to us by another person or situation. Here are a few suggestions for essences that many people, including ourselves, have found helpful.

Acceptance (Inner Child Essences) to help you with acceptance of yourself and your situation.

Family or Healing Family (Divine Harmony Essences) to help with those ever present family issues.

Healing Relationships (Divine Harmony Essences) or Humility, (Inner Child Essences) will both help us to see a new perspective where there is difficulty in close relationships.

Self worth is often an underlying issue in many situations of conflict so if this is the case try either Feeling Worthy (Divine Harmony Essences) or Self Worth (Inner Child Essences) to help with this. Other commonly triggered emotions are fear, anger, resentment and intolerance and the following Divine Harmony Essences can help you with these emotions – Inner Calm (fear), Inner Peace (anger), Self Responsibility (resentment), Inner Freedom (intolerance/judgement).

Wild Orchid

Last but by no means least a Heart Chakra (Chakra Essences) or Forgiveness (Divine Harmony Essences) can be very supportive essences to help us to open our hearts and enable us to see the higher perspective of a situation.
