September 2016: Calm at School

Calm at School

PeaceSummer is over, and students and teachers are returning to school. It’s a time of new adventure with new subjects to study, new classrooms, new classmates, and sometimes a new school. It can also be a challenging time for the same reasons and for adjusting to a routine schedule again. For some people – kids and adults alike – school poses an even greater challenge as they try to feel safe. Sometimes the feelings of threat are brought on by sensory overwhelm. So many people you can’t help but bump into someone, so much noise sometimes you want to cover your ears so you can hear yourself, so much visual stimulus it’s hard to know what to look at! Sometimes it is from continuous threats of real violence. This can lead to overwhelm, anxiety, and even panic. For some students just thinking of going back to school can lead to panic attacks. Fortunately there are also schools where kids can feel safe and have lots of support for learning. The photo is of the students and staff at the Beach School here on Lummi Island.

Calm Centered Clear was introduced as the September special 8 years ago to help students and teachers adjust as they go back to school. Since then it has been one of our most widely used blends. The Golden Armor Flower Essence and Aromatherapy Mister is also great at school for feeling grounded with appropriate personal boundaries. Both are available in a spray top that is easy to use and fits nicely into a backpack or purse. Golden Celebration Rose is a key essence in both blends. Twinberry is a key essence in Calm Centered Clear and a complement to the Golden Armor Mister. All of these are on special through September.

On the flower essence level, Golden Celebration Rose wakes up both your connection to the sweet song of the Universe and your awareness of your personal integrity shield. This allows you to sense the golden column of light through the center of your body, which creates protection from the inside out. From this deeply relaxed and safe place you can let down your armor and engage life with enthusiasm. Throw open the window of your heart and breathe in the deep joy and peace of the Universe!

As Golden Celebration Rose Flower Essence says of itself:

I AM the openhearted celebration of peace, joy and harmony in the midst of Life.

Twinberry Flower Essence

Twinberry_Crop copyTwinberry, also know as Black Twinberry and Bearberry Honeysuckle, is commonly found from the Alaskan panhandle to southern California and into Chihuahua, Mexico. It ranges eastward to Montana, New Mexico, Michigan and Quebec. Twinberry is found in moist woodlands, edges of ponds, lakes and streamside, swamps and thickets from sea level to high elevations in the mountains. Pairs of yellow trumpet shaped flowers bloom in spring and the purplish to black berries appear in mid-summer. Birds and bears love the berries, but they are generally considered inedible for humans. Some indigenous people used the berries to make black dye. Bark and twigs were used in making medicines to treat aches, pains, digestive issues, and sore eyes.

On the essence level, Twinberry is calming and soothing. It reduces hyperactivity, anxiety and agitation. It also settles strong emotional reactions like instinctive and visceral fear and panic attacks related to perceived survival threats. Twinberry Flower Essence does this by working through the energy fields; sacral, heart, throat and occipital chakras; and kidney meridian which relates to adrenal glands. It also works through the energy circuits that affect the brainstem that controls neurological and biochemical functions necessary for survival such as breathing, digestion, heart rate, blood pressure and the flight/flight/freeze response, and the limbic system that controls basic emotions such as fear and anger.

As Twinberry Flower Essence says of itself:

I AM calm and settled in my body with balanced emotions.
