Sovereignty Essences - Online Shop for secure ordering10mls £ 7, 30mls £ 14


Sovereignty, The Goddess of the Land, is one of the major archetypes British and Irish tradition. Threads through many other cultures also tell of the Power in the Land that Man must be blessed by, to maintain a balance with Nature.

Today, many images of the Divine Feminine have been idealised out of reality or pushed out of any "official" spirituality. The result has been a fragmenting of that energy into many diverse facets.

Looking at the mythology of the Goddess brings us to an understanding of our own inner journey and integration. Those parts of our being that dare us to go forward with courage and trust, need to be listened to.

Meeting the challenge of Sovereignty is to expose our compassion, our sense of natural justice and our loyalty to the Land and Its People. In this process we reach out for our own Grail. Our progress is reflected into the collective effort to heal our planet.

These essences can be seen as links or stepping stones towards reconnecting with the Goddess of the Land. They can also help us to deal with the challenges of living at this time of rapid inner and outer change.

Earth Goddess Essence
At this time, humanity's relationship with the Earth has become unbalanced. Gone are the times that we could wish the environmental situation better. We are now in times that require action.

Through our desire to care for the Earth some of us can publicly pressurise various areas of business and government. However, the place where we all need to create a better relationship with the Earth is inside ourselves.
This essence can help us to do just that.

This essence is made with the flowers of the white Sweet White Violet (Viola odorata), red Wallflowers (Chieranthus cheiri), Flowering Currant (Ribes sanguineum) with Mandrake over Sodalite.

It is a vibrational catalyst that works on the finer levels of our being to deal with worn out ideas, old karmic patterns and memories we are carrying collectively and for many of us, unconsciously.

By allowing transformation within ourselves we can better meet the needs of our planet. With extra clarity in our thinking, we can see through the illusions around us and onto what we can do to make a difference.

Above all, we need to be HERE, NOW.
Wishing to be on another planet or multi-dimensional level is no Earthly good.
With courage, we each need to embrace the full import and impact of being alive at this time and start to act.

The Merlin Essence
It is a plant essence made from the leaves of the Sweet White Violet and Mandrake .

There has long been a legend of Britain, that at certain times a magical energy emerges, echoing back to the fabled alchemist and magician called Merlin.
We are now entering the time of the energy's return, thought to be every seven hundred years.

This energy is linked to the ancestral knowledge and lineage of those who know the Land well. Within this energy is a powerful, ground-breaking teaching that reaches out to new ideas and paradoxically, also creates stability behind the scenes.

Primarily the energy of communication to all, it imparts a vision in delicate, softly spoken tones. To reach for this vision, though, there has to be a breaking from past patterns to allow a new freedom to arise.
The communicating and teaching therefore becomes a vehicle for transforming our relationship to the Land and allows both it and us to heal the wounds held deep inside.

It brings the hope that we may once again be able to be proud of our home and find worth and treasure when we look inside ourselves.
