Last Christmas I decided to give Love a try. We were going out to my parents house for Christmas and then leaving the next morning to Edmonton for a few days for a mini-getaway. Because relationships in my family can be somewhat strained at times I thought the thing to do was pass a little "Love" around. Well let me tell you - when it came to Love, a little went a long way!
I brought a 7c Gemstone Spray out to my parents - certain members of my family are against taking my products internally but I figured I could get away with a friendly little misting... so that night I sprayed us all down. I have little idea how the others reacted to the spray because at the time I was unfamiliar with what "signs" to look for and after just starting to work with sprays I even had my doubts that a spray would really work.
Within minutes of spraying everyone down, my left foot began to hurt. One thing I have found to be quite accurate in working with Gemstone Essences, is to look up foot pain on a reflexology chart. So far I have always found pain in a certain area to be associated with the organs and systems a remedy is designed to treat. (Note: some areas will show up differently on different reflexology charts so I always compare a few charts). In the instance of Love, my foot was hurting quite severely in the shoulder area.
The next morning I woke up kind of cranky and I couldn't wait to leave my parents house and get on the road. We drove most of the way in silence - which at this point was not so unusual and I slept a good deal too - also not unusual. The thing that I couldn't get over was how irritable I felt. It seemed like everything was just annoying.
Now writing about this event close to a year later, I am missing some of the details - but in a short summary the rest of the trip went like this. I had no interest in giving my husband any love or attention - physically, mentally, emotionally or otherwise because all I wanted to do was look after myself and nothing else. The two months leading up to Christmas had been quite stressful and I had spent most of that time working with my husband on his projects. As Christmas approached I spent my time hosting social functions and looking after everybody else and love helped me to realize that I really had nothing left to give. But what shocked me so much was the intensity I felt towards protecting my space and relaxation time. My husband ate breakfast every morning alone because I said I would rather stay in bed and be by myself (I am typically a breakfast person). I fought with him over going out to eat - an activity that he enjoys but that I found stressful, and I told him I was not getting dressed up or putting on makeup so he could eliminate activities that required me to be so off our list (I also usually enjoy getting dressed up!
After the first night, he went down to the front desk to book 2 extra nights - a surprise he was hoping would put me in a better mood. Well it put me in a mood all right. I totally lost it on him. Why did he think I would want to spend 2 extra nights in Edmonton when I had my own agenda to take care of back home. Why did he think I would want to spend the money on hotel accommodations when I had a new business I wanted to invest in. And finally - how dare he think to extend our holiday without consulting me first! He went back downstairs and cancelled the nights.
The next morning he ate breakfast alone again and then we went to the mall to do some shopping. I was still very grouchy and wondering how I would even enjoy the mall at this point - especially given that I was still suffering from a lot of pain in my left foot and walking was quite uncomfortable. On the way to the mall my mentor and intuitive friend calls our cell.
"WHAT IS GOING ON WITH YOU!!?" She asks, before I can hardly manage a hello. "Wouldn't I like to know" I say. I am in such a bad mood - for the past 3 days - and I have this terrible foot pain, and the only think I can possibly think that it might be is.... "THATS IT" she says. "What's it" I ask. What you are thinking it is, she says. Then she asks me what I was thinking. Well I brought some Love spray out to my parents, and I sprayed everyone down I said.
Here, let me do some (remote) corrections on you she said, and she went to work. Within a few minutes the pain in my foot was gone and my mood had completely changed. We ended up having a lovely day in the mall and last night of our trip - once I made it up to my husband for being "Love Sick" the previous 3 days.
At the time I was unaware that these were pretty typically "Love" symptoms and experiences. In the upcoming months I would talk to many people who had had similar experiences while on this remedy. What was also interesting were the changes that continued to take place in January as a result of the Love episode. I also didn't put 2 and 2 together on this development until after the fact and talking to other individuals.
Love also happens to be my remedy for "Releasing" the things, people and situations which are no longer serving you. As such it can be used to treat Hoarders and people with OCD. After getting home from Edmonton - everything felt so cluttered and stuffed to the brim. I use to teach classes on purging and decluttering, so our house and lifestyle is generally kept under control in these areas, however it sure didn't feel this way at the time.
For the month of January I decided we would not purchase groceries other than a few small items that would help us use up our existing food supply. This decision was made to facilitate cleaning out of our 3 food storage shelves and our fridge freezer. By the end of the month we literally had no food left in our house. (Prior to this friends and family would come over and comment on how little food we always had in our house). We also purged the files in our filing cabinet, the materials and resources from my sewing business, our reusable bag collection, winter clothing collection and lastly our books. As an avid reader I limit myself to 100 books in my collection, and purge an old book whenever I acquire a new one. However - after the 1 dose of Love, I was feeling suffocated by my collection and easily made the decision to get rid of an additional 37 books - bringing me down to 63.
Fast forward to June of this year. I decided my husband needed to be on Love for a couple of months so I made him up and essence in a cascade formula - containing potencies 2c, 4c & 7c. (It was suppose to be taken 4 times a day for 2 months, but he ended up only taking it 1x per day so we kept him on it longer). The biggest change we noticed over this period were:
(I will keep this short as it is now 4:54am and I would like to go back to sleep for a bit).
Previous to love my husband has denied ever getting angry and truthfully I had never heard him yell. However what would happen is that he would pass these feelings off to me, I would get upset, and then he could come to my rescue and be the good guy who saves his ballistic wife.
Now when he gets upset things go like this... He starts to get angry, I push a few little buttons to put him over the edge, he looses it and yells. I smile and tell him I am happy that he has finally acknowledge and expressed his feelings, and that it makes it easier on me that I no longer have to do it for him. He asks if it is possible that I am really not upset that he got mad. I tell him no and ask him how he feels. He says he feels a lot better. End of Story!
More to come at a later date...
