March 2010: Walk the Beauty Way

Clustered Wild RoseThe Navajo people have a Beauty Way ceremony to bring health and harmony to a person or community. “Beauty Way means being in harmony with all things and all people, with all objects, all the animals, all the feelings, the plants, the weather and all the events in your life. It means being at peace, serene in the knowledge that all around you is well and that you are well with everything in your life.” (Excerpted from here.)

Walk the Beauty Way

This early spring has created additional gardening work, on top of my long awaited winter project of a major website update. I’ve found myself speeding up, pushing, and squeezing in gardening when my body wants to rest. When I try to force a task, I feel out of balance with my self and my work, get irritable and on the edge of being sick. I’ve found the Beauty Way Essence Spray to be a wonderful ally. It helps me to see the beauty in the gardens and woods while I’m working outside, and to gently accept that the deadline I set for the website update is being extended…sigh. Clustered Wild Rose is one of the primary essences in this blend and the featured essence for this month.

Clustered Wild Rose Flower Essence

Clustered Rose grows wild in wet areas from southwestern British Columbia to California. Its clusters of pink five-petal flowers bloom in early to mid summer. Indigenous peoples ate new shoots in the spring and flavored foods in steaming pots and storage pits with rose branches.

On the flower essence level, Clustered Wild Rose engenders strong, heartfelt, directed, compassionate, purposeful and soft feminine energy in your daily life. Examples would be operating your business so that honoring your employees, customers and the environment improves your financial return; allowing time to gently transition between appointments and tasks instead of rushing; or having a receptive, consistent, gentle focus instead of forcing effort with your meditation practice. This essence works individually and with the larger collective human consciousness. As each of us embodies the strong yet gentle feminine, the collective approach to life shifts.

As Clustered Wild Rose Flower Essence says of itself:

I AM strong, heartfelt, directed, compassionate, purposeful and soft feminine energy.

Beauty Way Essence Spray

The chant “I walk with Beauty before me, behind me, above me, all around me” inspired the Beauty Way Essence Spray. This blend helps you to slow down, feel yourself, see the beauty in your surroundings, and remember that the energy with which you do a task is even more important than the task. It reminds you to be gently grounded in your body, expressing your strength from your internal wisdom.

Beauty Way can be used by people who are sensitive to scents because it is made without essential oils. It is in a base of red shiso herb tea with organic white vinegar. (For more information about the red/shiso vinegar base click here.) Spray around your body, into a glass of drinking water or directly into your mouth.
