What do you see when you look up into the sky?
- Varying hues of blue
- The bright light of the sun
Depending upon the time of the season the sky can take on different textures, colors and intensity. Also time of day can give various color hues and shades. However, besides the obvious things we see in the sky, there is also another view to ponder; possibilities. Think about all the possibilities the sky represents. Even though at times it can have the sense of being bound if a storm is on the horizon, it can also be an infinite space of possibilities.

Essences are also made from flowers, herbs or leaves. The difference between these and essential oils is that they are made from the vibrational energy of a plant or flower, captured in water, and preserved with alcohol (brandy or vodka) and have no smell. They are ingested via the mouth directly or drops within water and/or beverages, similar to a tincture. They can also be applied on the skin if one is unable to ingest alcohol or in case of pets or children.
Many times, we tend to take on others mental fatigue, hurt, and frustration even though our original state of mind was in a good place. For example: You’ve just received news that you got employee of the month and received a $100 check. You come home absolutely elated and ready to share the good news. As you hum away while winding down from your exciting day, your significant other walks in with a foul mood. Their day has not gone as well as yours and they want someone to sympathize with their strife. So, your good news gets met with a stale, “Great. I just had the worst day ever……” and the spewing begins. Doesn’t seem fair, does it? So, what to do?
