E-Light Newsletter

Welcome to E-Light - the Crystal Herbs Newsletter - May 2020

Dear Friends,

May, one of our favourite months of the year has arrived with nature fully resplendent in all of her glorious beauty. In the northern hemisphere, the Celtic fire festival of Beltane is traditionally celebrated on the eve of May 1st, a time when spring is at its peak and summer is just beginning. This is the month most associated with the feminine goddess and in which the abundant fertility of the Earth is at its most available.

We hope that despite the currently ongoing restrictions on social interaction and travel, you will have opportunities to spend time this month connecting with the energies of nature and allowing them to bring you peace and nourishment during this strange time we are living through.

In E-Light this Month: the Energies of May, Spiritually Uplifting Opportunities, the Influence of Taurus, A Time to Nurture You, Essence Suggestions for May & our latest Special Offers and News.

All of the Essences, articles and special offers mentioned in this newsletter can be found on our web site at - www.crystalherbs.com


Impatiens Flower

The Energies of May

There is a degree of lightness in the cosmic line up for May that will come as a welcome relief from the overwhelming intensity of the energies we have been experiencing since the beginning of the year.

That is not to say that there will be nothing going on, just that by the end of the month you should find yourself feeling a bit lighter and freer than might have been the case recently.

One of the main reasons for this energetic shift is a change in position of the moon’s nodes, which ‘move house’ every eighteen months. On May 5th, the north node of the moon will move from Cancer into Gemini and the south node from Capricorn into Sagittarius.  This will take the pressure off the still overly full Capricorn aspect of the sky and encourage us to approach life with greater curiosity and permission to explore new ideas.

In the energy flow that we have this month there is potential for a greater clarity and consensus of ideas on how to move forward to come to the fore.  There is also a thread in the energetic structure that will be encouraging loving relationships and global goodwill, so it is important that we try our best to foster these qualities in our own lives.

Finding new ways to live in balance, harmony & cooperation with everyone and everything around will be fully supported this month.

May’s Spiritually Uplifting Opportunities

The Wesak Festival

The first three full moon festivals of the astrological year, those in Aries, Taurus and Gemini are particularly important energetic gateways through which potent spiritual energies pour onto the Earth each year. The Wesak Festival held on the full moon when the sun is in Taurus is the high point of this inflow of powerful spiritual illumination.

On this full moon the Buddha, as the expression of the Wisdom of God, joins forces with the Christ who is the expression of the Love of God, to pour forth the blessings of the second Ray of Love and Wisdom in a ceremony that takes place on the etheric planes over the Wesak Valley in Tibet. Each year this potent spiritual offering is made available to all of us according to our capacity to absorb and assimilate what is so lovingly poured forth.

Wesak Full Moon

The Wesak full moon this year is on May 7th. This will be a particularly grand energetic gateway so do take time out to meditate, connect and receive the light and love that is being made available. Open your heart in compassion for yourself and others so that you can gather new insight and inspiration for the next part of your journey.

Connect with Mother Mary

May is also the month in which Mother Mary is particularly available to us on the inner planes for healing, blessings and guidance. Set the intention to visit her Temple on the inner planes before you go to sleep at night to take full advantage of this wonderful opportunity.

Taurus Symbol

The Influence of Taurus

The sun moved into Taurus on April 19th beginning a month-long period during which it will act as a powerful magnifier for the energies flowing into the Earth from the constellation of Taurus.

In western astrology, the earthy feminine energies of Taurus are represented by the sign of the bull. They bring forward the principle of illumination and offer the potential to see beyond the illusions of time and space.

Within the energies of Taurus there is both the power of creativity and an element of potent magnetic attraction which amplifies the desire to create. In its highest form this energy seeks to blend and harmonise all aspects of creation in beauty and love. It is aligned with the forces of enlightenment that remind us of the need to ‘to be in the world but not of the world’, so that we can turn the magnetic power of ‘desire’ into a force that will help to bring positive transformation to the many areas of life that currently require resolution.

A Time to Nurture You

There is a degree of lightness in the cosmic line up for May that will come as a welcome relief from the overwhelming intensity of the energies we have been experiencing since the beginning of the year.

How are you doing in the restrictive limbo land of social distancing and home confinement? Hopefully, you are coping well and taking advantage of the break in routine to re-orientate yourself in greater balance and harmony.

It has to be said that this is possibly the strangest period of time that we have ever experienced altogether as a collective. With the whole world now in various stages of shutdown, there are very few people who have not had their ‘reality’ altered in some way by the situation, albeit some more drastically than others.

Even when things start to open back up again it is unlikely that whatever our version of ‘reality’ was we will get back to it any time soon, if at all. This is not necessarily a bad thing, but it will mean that flexibility and adaptability will be important qualities for us to focus on over the coming weeks and months. It is also important that we do not give up our power to the situation and end up feeling lost and helpless.

Above all, this is a time to nurture and nourish yourself with love and compassion. Whatever is happening for you, just allow, listen deeply to yourself and know that all is well and that you are always loved.

Stay Present with Yourself: take time out everyday to find your centre and to check in with yourself. Notice how you are feeling, what you are thinking and whether these emotions and thoughts are ones that will serve you going forward. Listen deeply in your heart and allow any discomfort to dissolve in the love that you are.

Embrace Your Personal Power: staying centred in your own energetic space is one of the most nurturing things you can do for yourself. Align your energy only with those things that resonate in your heart and that feel nurturing and life enhancing. Cultivate detachment and decline invitations to interact with things that drain your energy or take you into distracting conspiracy theories or unresolvable polarities based on fear and judgement.

Align with your Inner Truth: take time to listen deeply to yourself with compassion and understanding. Align with your own inner truth so that more of your true self can step forward.

Essence Suggestions

Essence Suggestions for May

We find ourselves in a time where we are being called upon to make many adjustments in our lives. While we are taking a break from ‘normality’ there is a grand opportunity to re-evaluate and realign our values and direction in life.

Vibrational essences are valuable tools to help us with this process because they are essentially templates that help us to remember and align with a higher frequency more expanded version of ourselves.

As you spend time with yourself this month notice where you feel in alignment and where there are emotions or beliefs that carry mismatched vibrations that you do not want to carry forward.
Here are some suggestions for essences that might be useful along the way, based on our three themes for helping you to Nurture You.

Stay Present with Yourself

Check out Being Present; becoming grounded, Base Chakra and Earth Star for support with coming back to yourself. There can be a variety of uncomfortable emotions and beliefs that pop up for resolution when we try to stay present with ourselves. Here are a few essences suggestions for some of the most common. Fears: Inner Calm; transforming fear, Feeling Safe; trusting life, Strength & Courage Spray; overcoming fear. Not feeling good enough: Feeling Worthy; transforming unworthiness, Inner Freedom; transforming judgement, Self Acceptance; restoring unconditionality. Guilt; Forgiveness; transforming guilt. Resentment; Self Responsibility; transforming resentment.

Embrace Your Personal Power

Check out Solar Plexus Chakra, Auric Protection Spray; safe boundaries and Letting Go; dissolving dependency to see which essence will best support you.

Align with your Inner Truth

Here we need essences that will help you align with the vibration of your heart centre. Purity of Heart, Unconditional Love, Heart Connection Spray; living in love, Inner Wisdom; connecting heart & mind or Higher Heart Chakra all come in this category. Also check out Truth and Loving Communication; honest self-expression for help to own and express your inner truth.

Lastly, the energies of May take us deep into the feminine aspect of creation so here are a couple of essence suggestions to help you connect more fully with this vibration. Female Essence; strengthening feminine, and Divine Mother.
