        Thisreport is designed for those who are interested in tools which can supporttheir own efforts toward growth and well-being on all levels. Using astrology,flower essences, gemstones and gem elixirs, color, music, aroma therapy,visualization, and other methods, one can transform difficult patterns in one'slife and manifest more of one's positive potentials.

        Our emphasis is not so much oneliminating undesirable traits or experiences as on bringing one into balanceso that the positive expression of one's astrological signature can manifest. Aperson who is essentially inward and shy and who has trouble making his way inthe world will not become a dynamic, flamboyant world-conqueror, but he canbuild confidence in reaching out to others. Rather than attempt to get rid ofhis shyness, the focus would be on discovering the positive gifts hisgentleness may offer him and alleviating the more extreme, isolating aspects ofhis shy nature. Using these "vibrational" tools, issues that one mayhave struggled with for years can be eased, and long-buried talents and lovescan be awakened.

        Many of the tools suggestedherein, including astrology, work on what esotericists refer to as the energybodies, the chakras, or the aura. This subtle energy field, which emanates fromevery living thing, is where our energetic and emotional habits, thoughtpatterns, belief systems, and so on reside. Introducing the energy pattern of aflower, plant, gem, or mineral into one's aura directly affects one's emotionaland mental energies, and over a period of time this promotes long-lastingchanges.

        The key factor in using any ofthese remedies or tools is one's positive intentions, willingness, and desirefor harmony and health. They are not "magic". Used consistently andwith conscious intention, they reinforce and accelerate desired changes. In theback of this report is a listing of resources where you can obtain the floweressences and other products suggested for you. There are also other tips andinstructions.

        As you read over your reportyou may see a number of areas that you would like to work with. There is a lotof information here and the possibilities can be very exciting! However, it isusually best to attend to one issue or cluster of related issues (a theme) atone time. Choose whichever one is most meaningful or troublesome to you atpresent. Keep in mind that you will NOT manifest all of the potentialimbalances mentioned. Some issues may have already been resolved, and some willsimply not be relevant. In deciding which issue to focus on, follow yourintuition. Remember, too, that gentle, persistent effort is usually necessaryin re-patterning and creating any real change. Best Wishes to You!

Sun and Ascendant: General Characteristics


        The position of the Sun in yourbirth chart represents the person you are at heart and the path you must followto fulfill yourself as a unique individual. It also indicates your personalstrength and vitality, as well as what activities or life experiences yourequire to feel alive and to replenish your life force. The Sun represents yourpersonal identity.

Sun in Leo:

Key issues: Developing a healthy sense of individuality, the need for personalrecognition, use of creative power, desire for greatness.

Key qualities: Personal pride, self-centeredness, warmth, confidence, a senseof drama and grandness.

        Possessing tremendous vitalityand creative potential, you are at your best when you are leading, directing,or actively shaping the world around you. You need to feel that you are makinga personal impact on other people and the world, and you want very much to berecognized for your unique gifts, for being who you are. In your mind the worstfate would be to be common, ordinary, just like everyone else, nothing special.Though generous, you wouldn't dream of giving anonymously. You want to beappreciated, applauded, and recognized for your generosity. At your best, youhave great personal integrity and you live in such a way that you can genuinelybe proud of yourself. You are able to affirm and enjoy other people'suniqueness and creativity, as well as your own. And you do things in a grand,dramatic, and extravagant fashion to celebrate life, not simply to impressothers or inflate your own ego. You love to shine and to be alive, but not tooutshine others. By developing true self-esteem and self-worth, you are able toshare the glory with others and let them be stars, too.

Patterns of Imbalance:

        For distortions in the ego fromeither vanity or low self esteem, and for a balanced expression ofindividuality: the flower essence SUNFLOWER.

        For valuing your own gifts,appreciating your own worth; if you believe you have a special contribution tomake but are shy about it: the flower essence BUTTERCUP.

        For self-centeredness andneeding to be the focus of attention: the flower essences HEATHER and CHICORY.

        For over-identification withfalse self-images, and for being true to the essential self: the flower essenceSAGEBRUSH.

        For self-aggrandizement anddistorted leadership qualities: the flower essence LARKSPUR.

Gemstones and minerals that may be of benefit to wear, carry, or take as anelixir:

        GOLD, which (as an elixir)brings strength and energy to the solar plexus and helps access the highestaspects of personal identity. Helps one tap into inner truth, joy and wisdom asa source of creative power.

        RHODOCHROSITE, which bringsstrength to the heart chakra, clarifies intent and promotes courageous, heartcentered action.

        Your Ascendant (or Rising Sign)describes your physique, as well as indicating how you relate to and areaffected by your environment. It has a direct bearing on your physical health.

Ascendant in Virgo:

        Your physique could bedescribed as delicate, sensitive or highly responsive to subtleties. (As such,all of the vibrational remedies mentioned herein and others such as homeopathy,are especially effective for you.) What others may see as your finickinessabout food, or the effects of environmental toxins, or your need for aparticular type of environment is due to the fact that you register and feelthe effects of such things very directly and immediately in your body in waysthat others may not. You need to honor and respect what you instinctively knowto be good for yourself; otherwise you are apt to be plagued by allergies orsimply be much less vital than you could be. Irritability is one signal thatyou may be ignoring your body-mind-spirit's requirements.

        You have a particular affinitywith herbs, and learning basic herbal remedies can be invaluable.

        One of the psychologicalfactors that can effect your health most directly is your propensity tocriticize, dissect, or worry about yourself and your health. When out ofbalance, you can become hypochondriacal and magnify your symptoms because ofyour worry. At such times it is essential for you to avoid anything whichincreases your fear, and seek out reassuring or inspiring company, information,etc. The flower essences FILAREE, MIMULUS, and CRABAPPLE can be most helpful atsuch times.

Asc. Conjunct Moon:

        Your feelings, vulnerabilities,and personal reactions are right there on the surface for all see, and peoplelike you for that. You are also moody, and your emotions profoundly affect yourphysical health. When feeling hypersensitive or mood-dominated, consider takingthe flower essences QUEEN OF THE NIGHT or RED CLOVER.

Asc. Conjunct Mercury:

        Your ability and need tovocalize, communicate, and interact with people is pronounced. You have anactive mind and a rather restless body, quick reflexes and responses, andexcellent manual dexterity. When out of balance you may be overly talkative, ormonopolize conversations. Consider taking the flower essence HEATHER.


Moon and Venus: Emotions and Feelings


        The position of the Moon in yourbirth chart reflects your emotional nature, what you need to feel nurtured,what feels familiar and comfortable to you. It is also your deeply-held beliefsand mostly unconscious or instinctive responses, which play themselves out inyour closest personal relationships. Your moods, memories, dream life, andfeeling-self are depicted by the moon in your birth chart.

Moon in Virgo:

Key issues: The need to help and be useful; attunements to the Divine Femininein nature, oneself, and others.

Key qualities: emotional self-sufficiency, practicality, and sensitivity;refined sensitivities.

        Emotionally you are ratherunassuming, modest, perhaps timid or shy. Your simplicity and humility may,indeed, be among your most endearing qualities. You notice and appreciate smallthings, and feel such things are important. You can get caught up in theminutia of life at times. You are meticulous, fastidious (at least in some areaof your life), and acutely aware of things other people do not even see. You maybe hypersensitive, easily irritated. Your keen analytical eye may also bedirected toward yourself, your feelings and inner workings, which you dissectunmercilessly.

        Nursing, caring for, or servingother people in very practical ways is emotionally satisfying for you; beinghelpful gives you a sense of well-being. You give more easily than you receive.Asking for yourself may be difficult for you. You may be uncomfortable when youare not doing something, making productive use of your time. You dislike wasteand inefficiency. The puritan work ethic (with its attendant guilt overpleasure) is quite strong in you, subconsciously. You find hobbies such asneedlepoint, knitting, even housework rather soothing. You need routine, order.

        You are apt to have a stronginterest in health, nutrition, natural healing methods that involve food,herbs, or the mind-body connection.

Patterns of Imbalance:

        When you are out of balance,you tend to be tight: uptight, or tight tipped, or tight with money... ingeneral, contracted or held in. You may have problems with digestion (nervousstomach, ulcers), absorption of nutrients, or with elimination. Should theseoccur they can be remedied to a large extent by supporting whatever physicalmeasures you use with work on your emotional attitudes.

Flower essences that may be useful and appropriate:

        For perfectionism, guilt,feeling you can not measure up to your own high standards: the flower essencePINE is excellent. If, in addition to this, you feel unclear, impure,self-loathing, and unworthy, CRABAPPLE is indicated.

        Emotional inhibitions anddifficulties relating warmly and closely to others may result from being tooself-critical. For fostering self-acceptance, self-appreciation, and kindnesstowards oneself: the flower essences COLUMBINE, ALPINE AZALEA, BUTTERCUP, andBEECH.

        If you are intolerant or overlycritical of others, BEECH is also good for this.

        For obsessive worry,preoccupation with details, inability to see the big picture: the floweressences FILAREE, and WHITE CHESTNUT.

        If you are fearful or worriedover others, RED CHESTNUT is indicated.

        For lack of confidence inoneself, timidity, shyness: the flower essences LARCH, MIMULUS, and GARLIC.

        For repression of sexualfeelings and/or warm emotions and feelings in general: the flower essencesSTICKY MONKEY FLOWER, NASTURTIUM, and FUSCHIA.

        You may dislike perfumes andtoo much scent in general (incense or even highly-scented flowers) but if youdo not have this aversion, certain essential oils can benefit you when you feelout of balance. For use in bathes, massage oil, or in an aroma therapy mister:LAVENDER, HYSSOP, JUNIPER, and JASMINE oils are good for you.

Gemstones that may be beneficial for you to wear, carry, or take as an elixirinclude:

        JADE, especially the lavender,pink, or white shades, which foster emotional peace and tranquility.

        GREEN TOURMALINE, which is saidto help ease worry, judgmental qualities, and rigid expectations; and gold oryellow stones such as YELLOW TOPAZ, AMBER, or CITRINE.

        The position of Venus in yourbirth chart reveals your capacity for love, intimacy, pleasure, giving andreceiving, and relationships. Representing, also, your taste in beauty and yourvalues, it is a key to how you can create harmony within yourself.

Venus in Leo:

        Proud, warm-hearted, andperhaps somewhat showy or vain, you get pleasure from displaying youraffections in grand gestures of generosity or dramatic demonstrations of love.You give and receive graciously and proudly. Your tastes tend to beextravagant. You like things that are dazzling, gorgeous, vibrant, colorful,"the most" (stunning wedding dress, magnificent feast, beautifulChristmas tree), and you love celebrations.

        You are also instinctivelyloyal, and require respect and admiration for love to flourish (i.e.. if youlose respect for someone, your love is diminished tremendously). Whenexpressing the negative side of this pattern, you may dominate loved ones orinsist on being the center of their emotional lives, or unwilling to share theglory. You can create harmony within yourself through using your creativetalents and love of performing or making beauty.

Venus Square Neptune:

        You yearn for perfect love, arein love with love, are a fool for love. You may have more love for God orimages of divinity, or perhaps more taken with romantic or erotic ideals,dreams, fantasies than you are with actual human beings. For you love isoceanic, without boundaries, something you want to completely immerse, merge,and lose yourself in... you resonate with Tolsty's injunction to "loveeverything!". However this can cause confusion in your intimate personallife, for instance not understanding or respecting boundaries in your own orothers' relationships, or believing that your love can do (fix, heal, makeright) anything. You could become a martyr for love, think you have to besaint, or avoid actual flesh and blood relationships because no imperfectperson can fulfill your longings. Friends or lovers disappoint you when youproject your yearnings and dreams upon them. You are easily seduced, enchantedby beauty.

        Art is a healing medium thatyou respond powerfully to. Using healing visualization and imagery, creatingartwork, making mandalas or "medicine shields", or even visitingplaces where inspiring paintings or architecture can be viewed and absorbedengenders profound, positive changes in both your body and your soul.

        Some books that may be helpfulto you include: "Journey of the Heart" by John Welwood (to helpintegrate the spiritual with the intimate human relationship), and "ThePicture of Health" by Lucia Cappachione (about healing your life withart).

        The flower essences thataddress possible imbalances in this pattern include: BASIL (to heal the spiritbetween spiritually and sexuality, which can lead to clandestine behavior orstress in marriage), PINK YARROW and BLEEDING HEART (for inappropriate mergingwith others, lack of emotional clarity about boundaries), and CALLA LILY (forambivalence or confusion about gender or sexual identity).


Mercury: Thinking and Ideas


        The position of Mercury in yourbirth chart describes your intellectual qualities, how you communicate orexpress yourself verbally, and in general how your thinking patterns operate.

Mercury in Virgo:

        You think and speak precisely,with meticulous attention to facts, details, and correctness. (You may alsoannoy others by picking apart their grammar or logic). You are apt to havespecialized knowledge and skills, but unless other factors in you chartindicate otherwise, little ability to comprehend the whole. Consider taking theflower essences SHASTA DAISY, to increase holistic understanding, or FILAREE,to gain a wider perspective which can dissipate excessive or disproportionateworry.

Mercury Conjunct Pluto:

        Your mind is keen andpenetrating, and you are capable of considerable intellectual passion.Unsatisfied with superficial analysis or pat answers, you probe into the verycore of an issue or subject. You perceive the deeper, unspoken motive, what ishidden, obscure, buried, or taboo. Often you voice what others are trying toskirt, and you are a convincing, persuasive, even charismatic speaker. Yourwords can be potent and healing, going directly to the heart, transformingother's entire understanding. When not positively directed, however, you mayuse your mental powers to overwhelm or coerce others into accepting yourviewpoint, become intellectually or philosophically extreme, paranoid,intolerant and fanatical, use deadly sarcasm, connive, or secretly obsess oversome convoluted scheme or negative intent.

        You may have blockages ineither the throat or brow chakras due to early experiences in which you weretold NOT to see what you did indeed see (brow), or not to speak about yourperceptions (throat). You may have decided to close down your intuitiveperceptiveness, or not to trust others enough to speak openly and truthfullyabout your experiences and what you know. To clear and open these centershealing energy work (such as Reiki or other laying on of hands techniques) canbe very useful.

        If you feel creatively stifled,have difficulty speaking, or feel you must tightly control every word thatescapes your lips for fear of revealing too much about yourself, and/or if youhave physical problems and/or constrictions in the throat area, the followingpractices may be useful: 1) Do color breathing (as described in Appendix I)with the color SKY BLUE. Wear a necklace of some blue stone; LAPIS LAZULI isparticularly recommended. 2) Use your voice. Create a simple affirmation andspeak it aloud several times a day (for example: I use my words to praise,empower, and heal myself and others.).

        Take a singing or toning class.Let yourself make any sounds you wish. Strange, wild, or unexpected sounds maycome through you as you open and release the blocks in this center. The sound"HREEM", repeated during meditation or quiet time, tones and expendsthe throat chakra.

        If your brow chakra is damagedor blocked, you may have some difficulty visualizing. Use the color indigo orviolet blue. Gemstones that can be worn to clear or open this center include:DIAMOND, AZURITE, and SAPPHIRE, as do the flower essences EYEBRIGHT and QUEENANNE'S LACE.

        Other flower essences that maybe appropriate and helpful: OREGON GRAPE (for inability to trust, paranoidthoughts or expectation of ill-will from others), CALENDULA (for moregentleness and receptivity in communicating with others), and VERVAIN (forextremist views and forcing convictions upon others.).


Mars: Ambition and Drive


        The position of Mars in your birthchart indicates your will power, physical vitality and sexual drives, and yourcapacity for decisive action and self-assertion, as well as the musculature andadrenals in the physical body.

Mars in Taurus:

        Your physical drives and energylevel are steady, constant, and fairly strong. You are capable of greatendurance, of sustaining your efforts. What you may lack in speed or agilityyou make up for in persistence and staying power. You have to push through yourconsiderable bodily inertia or laziness to get going, but once you do you are asubstantial force. No one can move you if you do not want to go. You have anobstinate will. When out of balance, you are prone to conditions of physicalrigidity, heaviness, lethargy and congestion. The flower essences of CAYENNEcan help alleviate a tendency toward stagnation or an inability to move forwardtoward change. Stimulating spices in your diet (such as cayenne, ginger,cinnamon, and so on) would also be helpful.

Mars Square Uranus:

        Impatient, impulsive, original,and irrepressibly independent, you assert yourself in ways that may seemaudacious to other people. You have a self-willed, rebellious streak thatresists authority, conventions, rules. Somewhat of a daredevil, you have strongneed for action, excitement, physical thrills, change, experimentation,stimulation, or high energy situations. If it has not been tried before, youwill want to do it (NOW!). You are an innovator. Though essentially strong andenergetic, you run the risk of burning out your creative, sexual, or vitalenergies through extremes, lack of moderation, or misuse.

        When out of balance and notconstructively oriented, you are prone to accidents caused by recklessness,speed, or taking dangerous risks, unpredictable temper tantrums, or evenviolent episodes.

        In addition to having healthyphysical outlets to release your energies from time to time (anything fromvigorous dancing to athletics), there are a number of flower essences which canhelp you: ALOE VERA (for the type of burn out described above), IMPATIENS (forirritation, intolerance, impatience), TIGER LILY (for unbalanced, overlyaggressive "yang" energy), SHOOTING STAR (for feeling that you areahead of your time), WILD OAT (for restless dissatisfaction; trying manyactivities but chronically restless and unable to commit to any of them),CHERRY PLUM (for feeling out of control and afraid you will do somethingdestructive). MULLEIN (if what you are seeking to do is unconventional and notsocially validated) and CLIFF ROSE (for the follow through required to actuallymanifest your intent.). Also useful for you is DOGWOOD, for more grace, tact,and ease in relating to others.

        Gemstones that calm, ground,and harmonize your energies include: BLUE LACE AGATE (which calmsimpulsiveness, encourages tact and discernment), GREEN or BLUE CALCITE (whichrelax, calm and soothe the solar plexus and nerves), CHRYSOPRASE (whichrelieves apprehension as you move into the unknown, and encourages emotionalpeace and stability), and GALENA (a lead mineral that is very grounding). Thesecan be used when you are out of balance. LARIMAR is a very excellent influencealso, helping to build confidence when you are involved in unique or innovativeprojects.


Jupiter and Saturn: Opportunities and Challenges


        The position of Jupiter in yourbirth chart represents the principle of growth, improvement, expansion, faith,and the quest for ultimate meaning or broader understanding of life.

Jupiter in Libra:

        You seek to grow and expandyour understanding of life through relationships to other people. You have welldeveloped gifts of diplomacy, discretion, a sense of fairness and balance.Through cooperative efforts with other people, you feel connected to the largerorder of life.

        The position of Saturn in yourbirth chart represents the bones, the skeleton, and the principles of hardness,heaviness, structure, stability, form, and boundaries. It shows what is hardfor you, what you struggle with, where patterns of rigidity or fear hinder you,what is heavy for you, where you develop character, maturity, and depth throughbeing tested.

Saturn in Sagittarius:

        You struggle with philosophicalquestions, religious or spiritual beliefs, and the search for an over archingview of what life is all about. Superficial or simplistic answers may seemnaive to you, and you also tend to distrust any approach to spirituality thatis too "easy". You could become overly serious, heavy, ponderous, or rigidand dogmatic about your convictions. However you also run the risk of becomingcynical. Unable to see or sense any larger pattern, you may believe in nothing,and be plagued by a sense of meaninglessness or spiritual pessimism. Congestionor blockages in the brow and crown chakras are indicated. Energy work on thesecenters to open and clear them, and flower essences such as GENTIAN (to easeskepticism, doubt, lack of faith and discouragement) or STAR TULIP (for feelingspiritually cut-off) can be very helpful. Consciously cultivating aspirituality optimistic attitude would be beneficial also. To begin with, youmay need "proof" of the reality of the inner spiritual realms. Bookssuch as Dr. Larry Dossey's "Recovering The Soul: A scientific and SpiritualSearch" and "Healing Words" might be useful.


APPENDIX I

FLOWERESSENCES, COLOR THERAPY, AND AROMATHERAPY


FLOWER ESSENCES:

       The following information will enableyou to make up your own flower essence remedies. However if you wish to trythem but are not interested in doing it all yourself, you can contact a floweressence practitioner. Many astrological counselors and other holisticpractitioners use the flower essences and gem essences in their work.

       1. Choosing your essences: Generallyyou can use up to five essences at a time. Some people believe five essences isideal, as the number five is associated in myth and folklore with the healingprocess. Others find using a single remedy at a time most effective. Followyour own intuition and impulses on this, but please do not try to address toomany issues at once. Gem essences can be used with flower essences.

       2. Making the remedy: Once you havechosen the essence or essences you wish to take, purchase them from thesupplier in the concentrated form ("stock" bottles). You will need aglass dropper bottle such as pharmacists use for eye drops, which are sold atsome pharmacies as well as through the flower essences companies. The one ouncesize is standard. It should be sterilized by boiling it for a few minutes, thenletting it cool. Then, put four drops of each concentrated essence into thebottle, close it, and shake it vigorously for about a minute so that theessences are well blended. Fill the bottle about 3/4 full with distilled orspring water. (For a more potent remedy you may wish to use color-solarizedwater instead, as described in the color therapy section). Then, close thebottle and, again, shake vigorously for about a minute. To preserve themixture, add a teaspoon or so of either brandy or apple cider vinegar. (Theywork equally well; it is a matter of personal taste and preference).

        3. Using essences: The standarddosage is four drops four times a day, taken under the tongue. Taking more thanfour drops will not increase the remedy's effectiveness, and taking it morethan four times a day is usually not necessary except in crisis situations.However, if you feel inclined to use it more frequently than four times a day,these remedies cannot be harmful in anyway. They are self-adjusting, meaningthat you will simply not absorb more than you can use.

        To further activate theremedy's effect, you may wish to use a simple affirmation that corresponds withyour intent and the nature of the remedy. For instance, if you are taking aremedy to increase your receptivity to love, you can say "I now let loveand appreciation into my life", each time you take the remedy. Keep thewords simple, positive, and framed in the present tense. Or, you may wish toput a self-adhesive label on your bottle, with a list of the essences itcontains and a short phrase such as "receptivity to love" or"opening the heart" which you will see each time you take the remedy.

        Other very effective ways touse your remedy are to add 7 drops to a bath and/or several drops to anatomizer or spray bottle filled with water and spray it around the rooms ofyour house or workspace.

        4. What to expect: Pleaseunderstand the flower essences do not "take away" troublesomefeelings or attitudes. Some people actually experience a temporaryintensification of the issues the remedy is designed to address, what isreferred to as a "healing crisis", as strong emotions or otherreactions begin to surface. Naturally you can temporarily stop taking theremedy if you get too uncomfortable. You can also get some support while thisprocess is occurring, since a willingness to experience and feel what isactually there is an intrinsic part of the healing. Most people, however, findthe remedies quite gentle. Insights into the nature of the problem and how youare contributing to or maintaining it may emerge. Or, you may simply notice agradual attitudinal, emotional, or energetic shift, and more harmony in thatarea of your life. Some very sensitive people feel the effects of the remedieson their chakras (particularly the heart and solar plexus) immediately upontaking them.

        If the pattern you are workingwith is longstanding, as the ones which are related to your birth chart are aptto be, you may need more than one bottle of given remedy. Or, after one bottle,you may want to give it a rest, and then go back to that remedy later. If youfrequently "forget" to take the remedy or simply lose interest in it,this may be a signal that now is not the time for that particular one.


COLOR THERAPY:

        Color can be used to calm orenergize, to cleanse, to stimulate a given energy center in the body, or topromote balance and an overall sense of well-being. In addition to payingattention to how color affects you and using that awareness in your choice ofclothing and home or office decor, here are two methods to utilize color:

        1. Color-solarized water: Thisis a very easy method. The supplies needed are a clear glass jar or bottle, coloredcellophane (which can be purchased at an art supply store), drinking water,sunshine, and a clear quartz crystal (optional). Sterilize the jar or bottle,fill it with water, and if you wish add a clear quartz crystal (this magnifiesthe effects of the color). Then, close the bottle, wrap it in the coloredcellophane, and secure the cellophane with a rubber band at the top. Place thebottle in a sunny spot for 2-6 hours, preferably outdoors. After removing thecrystal, you can drink it freely and/or use it to make your flower remedies.

        2. Color Breathing: Thisexercise can be used to clear your energy system of psychic debris, stimulate asluggish or blocked chakra, and promote healing. Choose a place that iswell-ventilated. You may stand or sit as you prefer, keeping your spine erect.Begin by taking 2 or 3 deep, gentle breaths, inhaling slowly through your noseand exhaling through your mouth. Then as you breathe in, see and feel the colorfilling your entire body. As you continue to breathe, imagine the colorsurrounding your body as well, extending out about two feet all round you, tocreate a beautiful egg-shaped bubble of colored light. Simply breathe in thiscolor for 5-10 minutes.

        To work on a particular chakra,you may start by breathing clear, white, or golden light (as described above).Then focus your attention on the center that needs clearing or balancing. Forthe base or root chakra, imagine a glowing sphere of bright, apple red at thevery base of your spine. As you breathe, imagine the light becoming strongerand brighter. For the sacral center (located about 2 inches above the pubicbone) the color is orange. For the solar plexus (halfway between the navel andsternum), the color is bright yellow. For the heart, green or pink. For thethroat, sky blue. For the brow center (located between the eyebrows and upabout one inch), indigo blue. For the crown center (at the top of the head),purple, violet, or white. (You may use which ever one you feel most attractedto).

        If you cannot "see"the color with your mind's eye, just imagine that it is there. An inability tovisualize a certain color often indicates a particular need for that verycolor.

        To derive healing benefits fromvisualization and color breathing, it is not necessary to spend a great deal oftime. Five to ten minutes once or twice a day is quite adequate. And, onceagain you decide when you have "had enough" of a given color orexercise. A change in your feelings about a given color (less attraction to or"craving" for it, or less repulsion towards it, for instance) can bea clue.


AROMATHERAPY:

        Aromatherapy involves the useof essential oils from plants and flowers. It is much different from floweressence therapy in that it is primarily the "healing fragrance" whichinfluences body and emotions through the scents. (Flower essences areodorless). Aromatherapy can be utilized either as a perfume (especially appliedto the chakras), in bath water, in massage oil, or diffused in the air viasteam or incense. Read labels carefully and take precautions using these potentoils.
