Have you ever come up with an ‘elevator speech’ where you succinctly tell people what you do for a living? I struggle with mine, I really do. You see officially I’m a vibrational medicine practitioner but it’s a peculiar phrase that seems to conjure up strange visions for people. I’ve variously been asked if I make music, conduct laser eye surgery or work with sex toys. Just for the record no, No and NO ….although I find the notion of these as alternative career choices very very funny!
I’d like you to imagine we’re standing beside each other in an elevator, zooming up from the basement when you catch my eye and ask me what I do.
“I’m a vibrational medicine practitioner” I say and you raise an eyebrow, inviting me to elaborate. It’s good we’re standing so close because my voice is quiet and you can tell I prefer one-to-one conversations to group discussions.
I start to talk, drawing pictures in the air as I describe how vibrational medicine works and how I use it with people.
Scientific research has shown that different parts of our bodies have their own vibration and a healthy organ has a different vibration from an unhealthy one.
Similarly a loving thought has a different vibration from a hateful thought, and angry feelings have a different vibration from vulnerable feelings.
Take a moment to call to mind a time when you felt absolutely furious. Remember your feelings of rage and notice how your body responds. You might feel heat and notice your heart pumping or your body shaking. There may be a sense that you’re solid and immovable. You might frown or set your jaw solidly as your entire energy field responds to the emotion of anger.
Now let that feeling go as you take a few deep breaths to release it.
Now think of a time when you felt really vulnerable and insecure. Remember the feelings of uncertainty and notice how your body responds to that. You might feel small or cold or wobbly. There may be a sense that you’re not even really here and you could fall over or stumble easily. You might go pale, look down or even huddle up to protect yourself. Notice how different that feels to when you felt anger.
Now let that feeling go as you take a few deep breaths to release it.
Emotions are energy in motion and they’re meant to come and go easily, but often unhealthy emotions get stuck in our energy fields and we need help to release their vibrations.
That’s where I come in.
As a vibrational medicine practitioner I’m tuning into the vibration or energy of the patterns and issues that someone brings to me so I can match them to the most appropriate vibrational medicine to bring balance.
Our personal vibration is made up of the frequencies of our physical, mental, emotional and spiritual bodies interlinked together. Every thought, feeling, belief and action contributes to our unique vibrations as individuals. That vibration or energy is constantly changing depending on what we’re eating, how we’re moving our bodies, what we’re doing, how we’re feeling, what we’re thinking and how we’re responding to life.
If you’re feeling really apathetic, haven’t left the house all day and you’ve been eating takeaway pizza and watching TV, your vibration will be much lower than if you’re feeling in love with life, you’ve been on a big walk in gorgeous countryside and you’ve had a green smoothie for breakfast.
Different flower and and crystal essences have different vibrations that correspond with the energy of particular emotions or beliefs or parts of the physical body. Essences that balance anger are different from essences that release feelings of vulnerability. Essences that energetically support the functioning of the heart are different from essences that support the reproductive system.
Each essence contains the life force or vibration of a particular flower or gem or crystal. Think about an oak tree and the qualities it embodies. If you were to describe an oak tree what sorts of words would you use? Words like strong, resilient and steady? These are the very qualities that oak flower essence restores when you take it.
If you were to describe a rose you might describe it as soft, romantic and beautiful. Roses have long been regarded as symbols of love and all rose essences work on the heart; in one way or another opening it up more and more so we can experience divine love.
When you match the most resonant essence to an emotion or belief or physical issue, the vibration changes and deep transformation takes place.
Vibrational essences (flower and crystal essences) changes your vibration, so that you’ll feel better from the inside out. This makes them incredibly potent tools for personal growth and transformation. I’d like to share this quote from Abraham Hicks with you:
“The amount of time it takes you to get from where you are to where you want to be, is only the amount of time it takes you to change the vibration within you. Instant manifestation could be yours if you could instantly change the vibration.”
I wonder where you want to be? What’s the vibration that needs to change so you can get there?
As you take essences, your vibration changes because you’re releasing the energy of old beliefs and emotions and disharmony. Most people say they feel lighter and closer to their true nature while they’re taking essences.
When we use vibrational essences, we bring balance to our personalities and expand our consciousness.
We move deeper into our hearts and discover the nature of our own souls, experiencing more love and peace.
We realign with our truth, joy and purpose and and we feel it in every single cell. Life flows, we feel creative, inspired, fulfilled, joyful and truly alive.
From this place of greater alignment with our true essence, we manifest what we’re really here for.
We feel loving, expansive and connected and our inner light shines for all to see.”
Edward Bach, the pioneering medical doctor who discovered the Bach Flower Remedies in the 1930s would have been good at writing an elevator speech. In around a hundred words he expresses what it took me over a thousand to say:
“The action of these remedies is to raise our vibrations and open up our channels for the reception of our Spiritual Self, to flood our natures with the particular virtue we need, and wash out from us the fault which is causing harm. They are able, like beautiful music, or any gloriously uplifting thing which gives us inspiration, to raise our very natures, and bring us nearer to our Souls: and by that very act bring us peace and relieve our sufferings. They cure, not by attacking disease, but by flooding our bodies with the beautiful vibrations of our Higher Nature, in the presence of which disease melts as snow in the sunshine.”
So when people ask what I do, maybe all I need to say is “I help people to find peace and relieve suffering”. Join me for Soul Alchemy and I’ll choose transformational essences for you.
