We regularly and frequently get lovely feedback regarding the various LTOE. But when an essence maker whom we hold in high regard takes the trouble to write and let us know something good that was experienced with one or the other of our essences, I stand and take a bit more notice than usual, I have to admit. Just the other day Ann Callaghan of the wonderful Indigo Essences in Ireland wrote to me as follows.
I've been meaning to send over a few words about the Defenders but hadn't gotten around to it - then had cause to use Defend & Protect last night with speedy results. Here is the story.
My husband couldn't get to sleep last night. He felt there were 'things' in the room bothering him, poking at him and annoying him. I went to get Defend & Protect, put a few drops on his crown and within seconds he relaxed, fell asleep and stayed asleep all night.
The first time I used Defend & Protect myself I was aware that there were a lot of interfering energies around me and I was just too tired to do anything about them myself and felt I needed some help. I put a drop of Defend & Protect on my crown and had the sensation of these energies just falling off me and a big clear space opening up around me. Truly wonderful, Thank you Don.
Our good friend and colleague Dr. Adrian Brito-Babapulle uses the orchid essences in his kinesiological therapeutic work, and over the years various orchids have called out to him to be added to his 'energetic toolkit'. Sometimes this has happened when he has visited us on Gigha; upon walking into the greenhouse, he would encounter an orchid that was powerfully attracting his attention. And the essences which have been produced when Adrian would hear the song or story of that orchid have always been very potent.
So in the past 2 or 3 years I have been in the practise of sending photos to Adrian of what was in bloom, as he lives 11 hours drive away in the south of England.
A month ago I sent Adrian a couple of photos of typical blooms of an orchid that was only in early stages of bud development. This is an orchid which I have needed some years of experience to learn to grow successfully. Famous in the world of orchid growing, Paphiopedilum sanderianum
is a majestic orchid, about as extraordinary as they come. (I have posted a 180 degree view of it - video - on our Facebook page
. Click on the photo above to be taken to that FB page.)
In any case, the orchid called out to Adrian, and he was excited, as he had known for the past 8 months or so that there was another important essence yet to be made. And it was clear to him that this was the one.
The essence is being called Celebration
; it was made last Friday-Saturday (the 24th and 25th February), and we are still developing our understanding and description of it. Next week I will send out another newsletter which will have our fuller first assessment. What I can say at this stage is that the essence is powerful, and with a very high inner alignment, as those long petals suggest. Adrian adds that it has a clear connection with the new essences that have been made in the past 6 or 7 months, and that this essence will bear considerable reflection and research.
With my best wishes,
