This is a set of 8 environmental essences made in Iceland during December 2011.

The energies of this island and the attitudes of its people have much to offer in these challenging times.

The people have shown their independence and willingness to stand up for what they feel is right by distancing themselves from damaging global economic issues and seeking justice from those they believe to be the cause of their nation's financial problems.

The power of the Land to create and destroy brings an acceptance of change outside of any personal control.

It shows how to find the best in situations that are not of our own choosing and how to deal with constant movement from one state to another.

Lying on the junction of two tectonic plates, the Land also represents a bridge between two places, two extremes and how to find security in any situation when there is no obvious source or guidance.


Key I


Eyjafjallajokull


Eyjafjallajokull was (as of December 2011) the most recent volcano to erupt on Iceland (from April 2010 through to May 2010). The resulting ash cloud caused havoc for aviation in many parts of the northern hemisphere and deposited tons of ash onto surrounding land.

The energy this essence represents is one of semi-dormant power; awareness of one's action; far-reaching effects; primal force of creation.

Useful for observing the effects of actions of oneself and others; knowing when to act and when to stay still; needing enthisiasm or impetus to 'pull one's finger out', to get moving...


Key II


Seljalandsfoss Waterfall

You can walk behind this famous waterfall at Seljalandsfoss. Although only a drop of 60 metres, it is one of the best-loved and most visited. Before cascading down the cliff the water flows through Trollagil (Troll Gorge) and Trollagilsmyri (Troll Gorge Marsh].

The energy represented by this essence is linked to flow; result of change; letting go; beauty in the process.

Useful when there are feelings of stagnation; being at a loss as a result of change; finding enjoyment in life's journey, not in the final accomplishments.


Key III


Seljalandsfoss Rainbow Icicle

Seljalandsfoss Waterfall is probably one of the most famous in Iceland. To the left of the main fall is a beautiful Rainbow Icicle, the colours formed by impurities from the rock.

Vik is a village beside the sea, situated at the foot of the Myrdalsjokull glacier, underneath which is Mount Katla. This coastline is famous for its black basalt sands and off-shore stacks.

Mount Hekla is historically one the most active volcanoes on Iceland, erupting roughly every 10 years.
