The goal of the Shanti Kai™ Planetary Line is to help people become aware that some of what they experience in life is not always about or because of the microcosm that surrounds us. Some of it has more to do with the bigger picture in the cosmos. It’s generally accepted, for instance even in the medical profession, that the full moon has an affect on the mind, body and especially, the emotions. Likewise, other planets and star systems we are in orbit with have gravitational pulls, but moreso than just gravity is the electromagnetic fields of outside planets. Astrologically most people have heard of and at least somewhat understand Mercury Retrograde for instance, but most still find it a stretch to consider how the human mind and energy system is constantly being affected by the proximity of other cosmic entities – like planets, moons, stars, etc.
So I was having major ear issues out of nowhere – abnormal inner ear like I had water blocking the inside. I tried the Throat Chakra and Third Eye Sprays which helped – but it wasn’t until an acupuncturist friend sent me the video below that I understood what I have been feeling the past few days. Whether or not there is an earthquake almost is beside the point, because what does appear to be indisputable is that the planets are aligning in such a way to cause distortions in our normal electromagnetic field.
Those that are very sensitive to energy may have found themselves on edge this past week, feeling up and down and high anxiety and overall overwhelm and confusion – or any number of head or nervous system issues.
After watching this video, I started working with our Earth Chakra™ Essence and this immediately started to balance my ear and head area. Shanti Kai™ Earth Chakra™ Essence is all about balancing one’s energy with regards to planetary shifts – and it can also be paired with other essences in our planetary line to help balance these more complex relationships in our energy field. Specifically Earth Chakra™ is loaded with many (like 27 plus) evolutionary gemstones – crystals that are showing up at this point in time on the planet to help us balance, align, and cope with what is happening on a larger scale.
Anyway, I just thought I would share in case it helped any of you out. I’m sorry if it was too much for some – we try to keep our work grounded and free of anything too extreme – but understanding our place in the cosmos and how energy field can be affected is a big deal to us here at Shanti Kai™ – and we thought you all might enjoy working with our planetary line at this time.
Neptune in Retrograde is a great time to take advantage of Shanti Kai™ Imagine Essence – which was designed to help harmonize with the positive aspects of Neptune while mitigating the negative.
Shanti Kai™ Imagine is designed with a synergy of flowers (including water plants & orchids) and gemstones. Water Lily, Larimar, Blue Diamond, and other ingredients are combined to help balancing both ends of the extremes – from being overly disciplined or too grounded to the point of being “heavy”, to not taking responsibility, being hyper idealistic, or daydreaming to the point of not being present.
Neptune is named after the Roman god of the sea and in astronomy it’s symbolized with a trident ♆. Neptune orbits the Sun once every 165 years spending at least 14 years in each sign of the Zodiac. In Roman mythology, Neptune – being god of the sea – is a deep blue color and is associated with water which represents emotions.
In Astrology, Neptune is associated with dreams (including daydreaming) – as well as extravagance, spirituality, artistry, and empathy. But it’s also tied to illusion, lack of focus or discipline, laziness and vagueness.
When Neptune is direct, it will navigate us on our subtle levels, influencing our sleeping and day dreams. It also encourages us to go within to our creative and spiritual centers and let loose our inner artistic sides – but also may cause us to feel a little less grounded and in some cases to not have a plan for where we are going. A great astrologer once told me, when Neptune is in town you don’t know what you’re doing the next day – let alone the next year – the lesson is to be flexible.
Neptune in Retrograde
And if you didn’t know, Neptune is in Retrograde as well as having recently moved into native sign of Pisces – marking the completion of the 165 year cycle. This may cause some to feel more sensitive, intuitive, and even artistic. It may also cause some to have the darker side of the subconscious emerge and a hypersensitivity to criticism; dreams may turn to nightmares and creativity may succumb to laziness. What’s more, hidden truths may start to emerge creating discomfort, and distortions between reality and fantasy may become clearer. (To read more on Neptune or how it affects you specifically, we recommend a personal reading – check out astrostyle.com).
Working with Shanti Kai™ Imagine Essence
We recommend our Imagine Essence for those who are heavily influenced by this planet for some extra grounding and focus…and maybe even some answers to your questions about your life purpose. This is a great Essence to work with for creative visualization, meditation, and self-expression – especially when coupled with other Essences in our Planetary or Astro Line (read more below), such as Prosperity, Removing Obstacles, and MercurEase™ respectively.
Is there anything else I need to do while using this Essence?
Technically no – an essence works simply if you’re open and willing to change. However, many people find that consciously working with an essence and using your intention can be highly beneficial. In general, we feel the better you treat your body and the more in tune you are to it, the more you will be aware of and be able to maximize the shifts taking place.
Essences and Lifestyle Choices
In Ayurveda when one is ungrounded they recommend eating grounding foods, such as whole foods and foods grown in the earth (i.e. roots and potatoes) and less sugars and sweets. On the other hand, if one is overly fixed and grounded they recommend a lighter diet with more natural sweets, such as fruits and milder spices. (For more info you can schedule a naturopathic consultation with Dr. Jensen – also see Anand Gupta, Ayurvedic Diet: Discover your “dosha” by testing yourself: find which dosha is important for you). Adequate intake of water and the right type of exercise are also important. Yoga, Pilates, long walks and swimming are all excellent choices. We especially recommend long walks if you tend to be ungrounded – and swimming if you’re too inflexible and overly subject to discipline.
How do I use this spray?
Specifically for Imagine Essence spray we recommend 4-6 sprays 2 times a day focusing on the head, neck & throat and/or the heart & chest areas.
Where do I spray it?
We find the most sensitive and helpful areas to spray on the physical body are often the forehead/third-eye area, temples, base of skull, throat, front and back of heart center, abdomen and root area, along the spine (especially the base), backs of knees, ankles, and bottoms of the feet… but these are just suggestions. If you have a way of dowsing or checking yourself for where you should spray an essence, we always recommend listening to your own higher guidance first, and using our suggestions as general guidelines if you are unclear.
What if I have something stressful come up can I use it more?
Another way to work with essences is to use them acutely. For example, if you feel you need more than our recommended dose, you could use Imagine blend every 15 minutes and then reduce to every half hour, and then reduce to every hour until you feel your needs have shifted. And don’t worry, essences are vibrational so there is no need to fear overdose – if you get too much it will simply “evaporate” off.
You might also find it beneficial to alternate different essences every 15 minutes – for instance alternating Imagine and Attract may help with creating creative visualization.
Yes there is 1 drop of an essential oil combination including lime, vanilla and sandalwood – therapeutic grade gives it a semi tropical but calming aroma. However all of our essences can be made without added essential oil.
Can I use this with other sprays?
Yes. Imagine is part of the Astro Line and pairs best with other products in this line. The Astro Line is within itself a complete system having:
Venus ~ Invoking your Inner Diva, Feminine energy, Inspiring love, creativity, romance and art.
Mars ~ Balancing the Ego, Beneficial for men, Invoking motivation, passion, and harnessing raw energy for new projects and other life endeavors.
Prosperity ~ Invoking Positive Aspects of Jupiter: Luck, Opportunity, Expansion, Higher Learning. May help draw needed resources your way.
Removing Obstacles ~ Invoking Ganesha and protection from negative Saturn Energies, Invoking Protection and Energy Clearing, Sacred/blessed Essence with ingredients from healing ceremonies in India, Clearing blocks to meditation.
Earth Chakra ~ Grounding, Balancing, Adapting to Planetary Shifts. Has ingredients from all continents including over 20 newly discovered gemstones and crystals for evolution at this time on earth.
Mercurease™ ~ Communication, Working with Technology, Mercury Retrograde. May help with problem solving, memory, focusing skills, and writer’s block.
Transformation ~ Working with Pluto, Helps raise vibration of lower energies and emotions – hate to love/ fear to trust/ shame to worthiness/ frustration to patience and so forth. Helps clear energies in a room by transmuting them to higher energy. Brings hope and assists with process of regeneration / of rebirth after death or loss.
Intuition ~ Yin Energy, Balancing Emotions, developing sixth sense and intuition, Harmonizing with nature’s cycles (especially the Moon), water energies, and feminine cycles.
However you can always dowse or muscle test yourself to tailor your essences to your specific needs. If you do not know how to dowse we recommend the following pairings:
Imagine + Transformation: (Neptune + Pluto) creating transformation – first we must visualize that which we want and then take the steps necessary to move toward the goal leaving it up to the universe to decide how we get there.
Imagine + Intuition: (Neptune + Moon) – tapping deep emotional reserves for creative work / inspired art / spiritual work for those that are too rigid or out of sync with their environment, for those that are not in touch or are out of sync with their emotions, those that are overly dutiful and rely too heavily on schedules and the clock. Creating synchronicity.
Imagine + Earth: (Neptune + Earth) – staying grounded while opening up the imagination
Imagine + MercurEase™: (Neptune + Mercury) – remembering dreams, speaking on spiritual matters, communicating on spiritual plane, telepathy
Shanti Kai™ Class: Manifesting with the Cosmos in 2017 and Beyond with the Shanti Kai™ Planetary Line
Friday July 21, 2017 6-8:30pm at Sedona Hawaii Sign up online here or call Sedona at 808-591-8010.
People often come to Readings at Sedona and ask me if it’s gonna be a good year for them and what to watch out for… I usually say – “that’s up to you”. No matter what’s happening in the cosmos, we have some creative power over the outcome. While it’s true that there are some universal climates that are more acclimated to success than others, how we respond and react to events around us and the energies effecting us, the thousands of thoughts that will clamor for our attention in any given moment, which influences we align with and which voice we choose to listen to, how we align with our goals and highest purpose – this will create our destiny.
In the tradition of Ayurveda and Vedic Astrology – it’s said that this is a very difficult year astrologically for Mother Earth and the people of the planet, as 25 out of 27 planets are currently being negatively afflicted. As such, it can be extremely helpful to have the right tools available to navigate these times.
This class will focus on the major cosmic events – and a few of the lesser ones – for the remaining 2017 and into part of 2018 (and beyond in a few cases). We’ll learn how to align with and work with the energy contained in them to maximize the potential for each according to your needs and goals. The Shanti Kai™ Planetary Line – which has an Ayurvedic influence – will be used during class for different exercises to show ways of working with these influences, and you will learn which product or products you personally would most benefit from at this time.
Some of the things we’ll cover are working with moon cycles for emotional balance and developing intuition, retrogrades for balancing energies contained, and for removing obstacles and manifesting goals during times of challenge. We’ll also hit on using essences for enhancing relationships – business and personal – and balancing male/female energies and yin/yang, creative visualization and grounding.
