with eyes closed
to a moment in time
a snapshot slowly moving
through flickers of time
into a reel
of sepia tempered memories
I see your smile ruby
in perfect cream skin
eyes a twinkle with hope
brimming with inspiration
before blemishes of history
marked our souls.
The crisp air billows warm smoke
from our eager
breaths of virgin laughter
navigating our innocence
through life’s’ woven doors
to our futures.
Green felt laid laden
against our stockinged legs
with promise of eventual sultries
when we may blossom ~
These flashes of beguiling laughter
and distant closeness
in a carefully begotten forest
of mossy trees
and rolling pitches
serve our souls as
treasured cameo lockets
on a chain of spiraled time
cradled in our palm
as an offering of remembrance
to each other at twilight
~ sacred whispers
to each others’ hearts

Aurora’sAngelsShamanic Dream Song
angels’ song pours upon the oceans –
starlight sunlight moonlight glow
whales & dolphins hear this song
kindly singing it to us – slow
…. that’s the way it was
some ears fell deaf with clanging metal
and turned their hearts from home
birds of the sea were first to hear
as they graced the waves’ foam
…..angels & animals sang louder
and louder and ….
far wild the birds cried to all earth’s sacred
the angels guiding love song
understood love rhythm song for so long
…..they knew it was our life
desperate delivery of Grace
our b’loved creatures spread
the way of love’s eternal face
…and some of us put down our fury and listened
and the Angels’ song grew stronger and so did all of our light
bravely we face home with ourbleeding
hearts in hand – outreaching
forgive us join our hearts in love heavens
& light – we are yours to teach
and Love spread everywhere
Angels whisper-sing in our ears all day
to help our creature brethren, ocean & soil
we do this with love in so many ways
+those still deaf from clanging metal will hear
and it will be
Angels’ song pours upon the oceans –
starlight sunlight moonlight glow
Whales & Dolphins hear this song
kindly singing it to us slow
that’s the way it is
please listen to a whalesong today and also a dolphins too: they are more important than many people know

Talk about Miracles.. here’s one from Mother Nature that is so wonderful we can only be thankful and also make sure we help preserve this Sacred Tree. Palo Santo is a natural earth medicine also called Holy Wood. It is available in rough wood for burning, aromatic incense & fragrant essential oil. Related to frankincense on same botanical family (Burseraceae), but found in South America instead of Middle East, it is known as a HIGH SPIRIT essential oil. Palo Santo’s translation “sacred wood” from spanish was used by the Incas to purify auras and sacred spaces cleansing all negative energies and spirits ~ known for easing panic attacks & anxiety.
The oil, smoke & incense all have an amazing effect during meditation use with many reports of deeper layers reached and a definite presence of Angels including blue light Halos.
The tree Palo Santo is government protected to the extent that no living trees or branches may be cut. Considered so sacred that harvesting the oil requires a permit ~ even though only dead branches and trees laying on the ground for a minimum of 2 years are allowed for use!!! In a sense they are self protecting of their Holy Oil where the miraculous resin only develops when the wood dies and ripens to a unique chemistry.
Both North & South Ecuador Palo Santo trees are used. There are different types. The North trees have heavy trunks and lighter white bark ~ The South trees produce 2x as much oil with the salty air and red bark!! Some says it ‘bleeds’ when cut ~ The limonene content is higher in South also. Limonene is a monoterpene compound that has been found to have chemo- preventive and chemo-therapeutic effects against several types of cancer!!! Palo Santo is also rich in sesquiterpenes, monoterpenes and alpha-pinene.
A recent study from Tokyo shows that it has a 70% success in reducing cancer. Limonenes increase levels of carcinogen eating liver enzymes there by stopping cancer from growing ~
Palo Santo is a super antiseptic that also heals wounds~ Also used in massage for inflammatory pain in muscles, sprains & joints. People notice a shortened recuperation time when used for broken bones ~ also heals acne & skin infections….
A Great & Miraculous Treatment for Depression ~ used through massage, aromatherapy & internally.
Caution: Possible skin sensitivity. Keep out of reach of children. If pregnant or under a doctor’s care, consult your physician.
Helichrysum is an evergreen aromatic herb growing up to 60 cm (24 in) and ranks as one of most ancient & valuable healing substances along with Frankincense, Myrrh, Spikenard and Rose capable of healing physical and emotional scarring. Angelic uses are to open the heart, connect body to spirit and opening human beings to spiritual life. The oil is often added to blends for diseases where there is an emotional cause especially addictions and heart disease with its use during counseling to bring to the conscious surface repressed or subconscious feelings that propagate denial.
Co-incidentally or I prefer ‘Heavenly Orchestrated Synchronicity’ the oil assists detoxification from alcohol, drugs and nicotine, while releasing the body and mind from addictive patterns. Helichrysum opens the flow of subtle heart energies while its anti-inflammatory and tissue regenerating properties also help repair swollen or weak veins. Blends diffused or rubbed on the heart area help emotional release and physical clarity. Helichrysum essential oil may evoke powerful emotions in some individuals – please start with small amounts while observing reaction and always use in moderation.
Also known as Immortelle & Corsica Flowers with hundreds of varieties.This amazing flower medicine has a higher anti-inflammatory efficiency than German Chamomile, higher tissue regenerating efficiency than Lavender & higher cicatrisant rate (helping the formation of scar tissue) than Frankincense!!!!! Wow!!!
Helichrysum restores and supports skin, liver, and nervous system.* ORAC scale >17,000 provides a formidable defense against free radicals and is used in many aromatherapy & essential oil treatment blends. Another name is ‘Everlasting’ and we can see why.
Helichrysum is the oil of choice for healing scar tissue recent or old – it stops bleeding by coagulation to scab & helps tissue repair itself either neat or added to a carrier oil and applied to stretch marks, acne scars, surgical scars, and wounds of all kinds. So amazing are its properties as an anti-inflammatory with pain reducing and analgesic effects it can greatly ease Rheumatoid Arthritus symptoms especially combined with other pain relieving oils like Lavender and Yarrow which are also anti-inflammatory in a massage oil. Also used as antispasmodic and expectorant to relievecongestions, loosen cattarh and soothe coughsby blending three drops each of Helichrysum,Frankincense & Eucalyptus oils in twotablespoons of sweet-almond oil & massagedonto the entire chest area.
Active ingredients in Helichrysum
Why is this flower power so efficient?
SESQUITERPENES ARE NATURAL ANTI- INFLAMMATORY and Helichrysum is 50% sesquiterpenes!!!!!! ESTER has a huge relaxation effect on tissues, relieves tension and allows natural ‘perfusion’ – (nutritive delivery of arterial blood to a capillary bed in the biological tissue) to take place – Helichrysum is 40% esters. 3rd major component is DIKETONE which signals tissues to regenerate. Di-ketonesare reasonably rare & guess what has highest known percentage of di-ketones? Helichrysum.
Other names for constituents are flavonoids, tannins, resin, phytosterin, neryl acetate, nerol, geraniol, pinene, and linalool. The plant also contains isosalipurposide, naringenin, naringenin-5-O-diglucoside, glucosides of apigenin, luteolin, kaempferol and quercetin & an unidentified antibacterial mixture called arenarin.
Present research on its main component – alkyl carbonic acids is ongoing.
Helichrysum in Skincare & Injuries
It has wonderful regenerating qualities healing scars, acne, dermatitis, stretch marks,boils and abscesses. while the toning qualities are phenomenal & used to perk up and bindloose hanging skin. A strong straw mixed with honey & fruit tea scent with colours rangingfrom red to palest of yellow. Best results arewhen used like arnica right away after an acuteinjury but always with a medical doctor’s guidance.
Helichrysm is added to skin care products for its skin-rejuvenating properties & soothing effects on sensitive and inflamed skin. Also clears Candida and with boost to the immune system helps avoid allergies and infections. An ancient beauty formula that helps fade under eye circles very little diluted well in a carrier oil used with caution around the eyes. As a body oil with 2 oz sweet-almond oil, ten drops of helichrysum oil and five drops of rose- geranium oil leaves the skin softer, smoother &protects skin from drying while relieving psoriasis. Massaging oil into the skin immediately after showering or bathing enhances absorption. A combination of Helichrysum and Sage helps old scars and slow healing wounds. Apply 3-6 months for old scars or 2x/day for 10 days on recent wounds.
Like Arnica gel Helichrysum applied to contusion sites usually prevents bruising, swelling and discoloration – always dilute for use on skin – Anti-allergy, anti-inflammation, astringent, cytophylactic (stimulation of cell regeneration) – Used also as a GUM REPAIRATIVE by mixing one drop of Helichrysum oil in one half teaspoon of witch- hazel extract, dipping toothbrush into mixture and gently rubbing over inflamed areas.
Classification of Helichrysum
Helichrysum Arenarium extract is an extract of Everlasting – Helichrysum arenarium (can also be extracted from Helichrysum angustifolium -also known as Helichrysum italicum) and is listed as a biological product. Although H. Arenarium has not been allocated a functioning group in the 2004 INCI dictionary, H. angustifolium is used as a miscellaneous skin- conditioning agent and is also known as everlasting, immortelle and John’s herb extract (NOT to be confused with St. John’s wort).
Helichrysum in Nerve Damage Repair
For regeneration of nerves there are several natural substances that Heaven has given us – Mother Nature is expert at nerve repair ~ In one instance curing quadroplegia!!!!! A natural substance called DMSO (Dimethyl sulfoxide) was used in one case of curing quadroplegia.
There are in fact several purely natural substances that have been shown to regenerate and grow nerves.
DMSO is a natural substance. Every tree and bush on Earth has DMSO in it. It is extracted by the ton every year by the paper industry! It can penetrate skin, into the bloodstream, bind to other molecules & carry those molecules without an IV or Injection.
It can cure many diseases, DMSO cured many diseases by itself, without the need of any prescription drugs.
SEE: DMSO Article],
How does DMSO relate to Helichrysum? In several cases of deafness from birth the use of Helichrysum was seen to regenerate nerves in the ears!!! Deafness caused by nerves not connecting has been cured with helichrysum.
This means Helichrysum is a candidate to cure spinal cord injuries and other conditions involving nerve damage.
If the nerve damage is degenerative, rather than caused by accident or trauma, heavy metals may be involved in the degeneration. This is an entirely different matter which would involve chelation or oral chelation.
Helichrysum in HEP C TREATMENT
“A 2003 study conducted by Roger Lewis MD at the Young Life Research Clinic in Provo, Utah evaluated the efficacy of helichrysum, ledum, and celery seed in treating cases of advanced Hepatitis C. In one case of a male age 20 diagnosed with a Hepatitis C viral count of 13,200. After taking two capsules (approx. 750 mg each) of a blend of helichrysum, ledum, and celery seed (JuvaCleanse) per day for a month with no other intervention, patients showed that viral counts dropped to 2,580, an over 80 percent reduction.”
Some oils can cause sensitization or allergic reactions in some individuals. When using a new oil for the first time, do a skin patch on a small area of skin. Place a small amount of the diluted essential oil on the inside of your elbow and apply a bandage. Wait 24 hours to see if there is a reaction. Discontinue use if there is any form of reaction.Proceed carefully and with guidance if the following conditions exist : USE DURING Pregnancy, you may want to avoid all essential oils during your pregnancy.High blood pressure, epilepsy, open wounds, diabetes, rashes, neurological disorders, doctor prescribed medications or homeopathic remedies. Do not apply undiluted to the skin, dilute in a pure vegetable carrier oil.For treatments of health ailments, please seek diagnosis and recommendations from a licensed medical practitioner.These safety guidelines are not a complete safety reference for the proper use of essential oils. When in doubt, consult your physician and/or a qualified and trained aromatherapy practitioner.
♥ Vetiver is a simple grass that grows prolifically & has some incredible special qualities and uses ~ it is being used worldwide to anchor soil in eroding flood washed lands ~ the 2- 4 meter deep vertical roots plunge deep into the ground in a pattern of high density and act as a weaver of soil and giver of nourishment back to earth, Originally a perennial grass native to India it is now grown and used in many tropical countries as a soil and water quality management crop. Vetiver grass is grown for many different purposes. It protects fields against pests and weed but also great for animal feed.In Israel, by Dr. Nativ Dudai found out that Vetiver is capable of growing in a fuel-contaminated ground! and found that the plant is also able to clean the ground so thoroughly that the soil is almost fuel-free.Vetiver Oil is extracted from the root and traditionally used as perfume base often used to warm citrus notes and sweet flower. 90% of world perfumes use vetiver in their mix as it also fixative in its deep amber resin.The oil of Vetiver is also great for helping stimulate collagen repair in the skin. The fibrous plant is also used for making thatch roof, mud bricks, basket weave and ropes.The most amazing studies I have found are the studies in Vetiver’s use and treatment of children and adults with the ADD /ADHD gene type ~ The oil is a mild sedative and when rubbed on the soles of feet induces gorgeous calm soothing for hyperactivity and anxiety. Its deep amber scent is similar to patchouli without its headiness, ♥Thank you Mother Nature.
