Weekly What’s Up?: Imagine™ Essence for  Neptune in Retrograde

Weekly What’s Up?: Imagine™ Essence for Neptune in Retrograde

Neptune starts its annual retrograde on Friday, June 25th in the sign of Pisces, and will remain as such until December 20th. Neptune is known for creating illusions and sometimes confusion, but when it’s in retrograde, the veil lifts and reality as it is can become more readily apparent. When this occurs, it may come as a shock or present things that you don’t want to acknowledge, but the clarity also presents a chance to change your reality so it aligns more closely with your goals and ideals.

We recommend working with the energies of Neptune retrograde along with Shanti Kai™ Imagine™ Essence to foster heightened imagination, creativity, and your ability to visualize things as you want them to be.  Our Neptunian Essence blend is formulated to help foster a healthy imagination whilst keeping your feet planted firmly on the ground, so that you can stay focused on what’s most important in life.   What’s more? Saturn began its backward stroll in the forward moving constellation of Aquarius on May 23rd…. Saturn retrograde tends to be a time of karmic rebalancing – and seen in a positive light a time to recognize underlying issues that must be dealt with in order for you to move forward in life.  For this, we are recommending Shanti Kai™ Removing Obstacles™, our yogic blend inspired by Ganesha, whose large trunk helps to clear obstacles out of your path.  Paired together, these 2 essences can help clear blockages to your creative inspirations, ability to visualize and/or to “Imagine”…. to create your reality as you would envision it to be.  Saturn is the planet of discipline and judgment… it preaches the law of cause-and-effect and reminds you that everything you do has a reaction or response from the Universe.

While Saturn teaches discipline and requires consistent effort and hard work, when Neptune’s in town you don’t know what’s going down. For when Neptune is active in your chart, it requires you be flexible – it urges you to go with the flow and be okay with not having as much structure or routine. This may be harder for some than others, but with both these planets moving backwards, you can expect to find yourself questioning the structures that bind you, as well as the meaning of life itself… Indeed, it may be a time of deep soul-searching, and you may find it difficult to remain in your “ordinary” job or doing the rudimentary tasks of everyday life.  Things that used to have meaning and purpose may suddenly feel void or less appealing – and especially with Jupiter ALSO in retrograde, a philosophical streak might have you questioning ANY KIND of structure and/or discipline at all!

Neptune might implore you to cut ties with anything that would restrict or bind you, whereas Saturn is likely to urge you to stay the course and push through at all cost.  We think you’ll appreciate the added boost our Companion Essence Blends bring to help you navigate these “backward times”- Removing Obstacles™ and Imagine™ for Neptune & Saturn Retrogrades.  No need to choose between floating in the clouds or being stuck in the daily grind… invoke the creative inspiration, freedom, dedication, AND discipline you need to push forward and achieve your dreams.  Our Companion Essences can give you just the boost you need to aid you in balancing the cosmic (and karmic) energies at hand.  Come out on the other side EXACTLY where you want to be – “thriving” instead of merely surviving.

Shanti Kai™ Clarity Essence™: Knowing from the Heart What to do

Clarity Essence

Since Water Lily is the birth flower of July, and our Water Lily Essence is 15% off this month, we thought it would be a great time to feature our Clarity™ Essence Blend, in which this flower is an ingredient!

Clarity™ Essence is the perfect blend for anyone looking for direction in their life, whether it be to navigate indecision, conflict, loss or confusion. If you’re not sure what next step to take in a particular situation, using this Essence may help to lead you from one step to the next. While mental clarity is more closely associated with activities such as test taking, Clarity™ Essence encourages emotional clarity, which stems from the heart, and may ultimately lead to mental clarity as well.

See what our customers are saying about Clarity™ Essence:

“I was struggling a lot with my relationship, because of current problems and also scars from my past getting reignited. I was at a crossroads, deeply confused about what to do and how to move forward. Clarity really helped me see what was truly going on. I took clarity every day and it really helped me shift into a space of being clear and knowing what steps to take and what decisions were right for me.” -Allison

“The past couple of months of my life had been really challenging. I found myself getting lost in all the details, unable to make any decisions with any sense of confidence. I started using clarity throughout the day when a felt troubled by a decision I had to make. It really helped me to feel settled in my ability to make the right choice at the right time.” -Ryan

“In regards to relationships and whether reaching out to certain people is healthy for me or not, this #essence has been helping me to become more clear about which actions and decisions are going to support my highest good and to feel more comfort and conviction in those choices. Really effective when confusion reigns and no choice seems like the right choice.” -Anna

“I was feeling really down and depressed, disappointed with where I was in my career. Certain things just weren’t taking off and I wasn’t sure if it was even worth going forward. Every time I felt this way I would use the Clarity™ and Hope Essence sprays together and somehow without really thinking about it I would lift back up and find the inspiration to keep going. Over time I realized by doing this I was on a much better path and things eventually did start happening.” -Maya[ultimate_spacer height=”6″]

Tips on Working with Essences

Tips on Working with Essences

Essences are tools for us to work through different aspects of life, problems that emerge, issues that come up, situations that arise, etc. They work primarily on the subtle energy bodies and affect the physical body as a downstream event. Those that are not as sensitive or as “tuned in” to their body or energy system may not experience the action of an essence right away. For this reason, we recommend writing down everything you are experiencing at the start of taking an essence and to check in midway through and after with your original list. Even if a problem is not totally resolved you will likely find it has changed and/or improved.

When working with essences, it’s important to work with what comes up, as this is often a sign the essence is working. We can help it along by doing the inner (and sometimes outer) work of addressing issues that surface while using essences. Sometimes this might mean consciously working to improve things like diet and exercise. (In that particular case, Shanti Kai’s Transitions Blend can be a great essence to incorporate, as it is specifically designed to help change habits.) Other times this means not sweeping things that bother us or uncomfortable feelings or emotions under the carpet, but inspecting them, contemplating them, and working with them to see if there is conscious effort that needs to be made. Sometimes “stuff” might come up during essence use that needs help releasing. If you find yourself feeling stuck, it may be that supplementing the essence you are using with Release It™ or Lighten Up™ might help move some of the stuck energy out.

Another way to work with essences is to use them acutely. For example, if you find yourself experiencing high levels of tension and/or stress, you could use for instance the Healer Within Essence™ blend every 15 minutes and then reduce to every half hour, and then reduce to every hour until the tension has shifted. Because essences are vibrational there is no need to fear overdose – if you get too much it will simply “evaporate” off. That being said, sometimes our responses to essences can be quite strong as they can activate a release to occur. If this happens, you may want to work with another essence like White Light™ or Earth Chakra™ to help calm and/or ground the release experience. Other times you may find yourself needing to do something outwardly to shift your experience, and because essences work to align your vibrational field, you may find yourself being innately or spontaneously guided to a resource that can help you, or to take action in a certain way. Often times people find that simply using the essence, being open to change, and being willing to release any resistance is enough to produce a profound shift and lasting result.

You might also find it beneficial to alternate essences every 15 minutes, for instance alternating Clarity™ and Hope™ to ease overwhelm, confusion, feelings of despair, or to aid focus on the highest potential outcome. It may also help to work with affirmations or decrees, or conscious breathing practices while using the essences, especially when using them acutely. Acute essence usage is almost always a good tool when trying to navigate through an experience of overwhelm. You can alternate spraying different areas of the physical body or aura at different time intervals. 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.

Hope™ & Clarity™: Companion Essences for Finding Direction

“As you go, step by step I will open up the way before you” – Proverbs 4:12

Spring is upon us with summer rapidly approaching, and transition is in the air. Almost halfway through the year, it’s a good time to reflect on where you’re at and where you’re headed. This week we are featuring Companion Shanti Kai Essence Products Hope™ and Clarity™ for Finding Direction. These are especially wonderful products if you’ve suffered a loss or a setback, are grieving, needing direction, wrestling with a difficult choice, struggling to find a new life path, or perhaps just looking to improve your life in some way, shape, or form…. Because with Shanti Kai’s Hope and Clarity Companion Essences™, the futures so bright you’re gonna have to wear shades!

Flower essence for hopelessness

Shanti Kai™ Hope Essence™

Hope Essence™ is loaded with over several varieties of tropical Gardenia, including native Hawaiian and tree flowers, along with other Hawaiian flowers and uplifting gemstones, such as Charoite. It’s formulated to uplift the spirit out of such states as grief, sadness, helplessness, and despair. But one need not be despairing to find use for this essence! Hope Essence™ reminds those caught in the mundanity of ordinary life that there is always more, always something greater to keep moving towards. There is a spiral of infinite possibility that always exists, that we can align with, and that can take us to a place of greater fulfillment regardless of one’s age, status, physical condition or situation in life. While Hope Essence™ speaks primarily to one’s Spirit and Higher Soul, it’s a spiritual fact that our outer happiness is a reflection of our inner contentment (and vice versa), and thus many people find greater ease in the physical when their spiritual state is elevated. It’s no wonder that when people tell us at Shanti Kai™ how Hope Essence™ has benefited them, they often speak about changes and improvements in their outer life or worldly existence.

mental clarity essence blends

Shanti Kai™ Clarity™ Essence

Clarity Essence™ is a very sweet blend consisting of key ingredients including White Water Lily and Aquamarine. Much as the Water Lily makes its way above murky waters to blossom, Shanti Kai’s Clarity Essence™ gently acts to guide one through some of life’s murkier moments. The Water Lily intuitively knows to move toward the sun… It doesn’t stop and fret and phone all its friends despairing about the filth surrounding it. It doesn’t wallow in its hopelessness that there can’t possibly be a brighter future (as evidenced by it being all covered in slime and grime). Rather it innately keeps inching upward, moving toward the surface until it finds the sun and can expand and open up and blossom. Similarly, Clarity Essence™ acts as a support, a guide, a walker if you will for one through less certain times. It acts not on the mind like a cup of coffee, and not on the senses like a grove of eucalyptus, but on the innate impulse of one’s heart, the inner spunda, allowing for the individual’s own intuitive intelligence to unfold.

Used together Shanti Kai’s Hope and Clarity Essences™ work synergistically to restore one’s belief in infinite possibility, to revive the spirit, and guide one into a brighter future. As with all essences, these products work best if the user actively works with them, requiring only that one be open to and willing to change.

Customer Testimonial on this Powerful Combination

“I started my own business and spent a year developing a product, but wasn’t getting the leads I needed to make it successful. I was putting in so much time and energy with very little success, and although I had gone about my work very prayerfully, I became discouraged that I couldn’t see any tangible results. I started using Hope and Clarity together, specifically I either put it in my water bottle and took it with me to yoga or kept the sprays on hand and used them when these feelings started to come up. Shortly after, I would start feeling more hopeful and encouraged. Whereas before I had been unable to see anything positive unfolding, after using them I would begin to shift into a more hopeful perspective. Slowly guidance would come to me as to how to proceed and intuitively I just knew to keep going even though the odds seemed against me. I began to see the reasons why things weren’t lining up, things that I had unknowingly been impatient with and wanted to make happen “right away” but that required more time and effort to yield quality that could lead to long term success. I don’t really know where the turning point was with it all but somewhere along the lines of using Hope and Clarity I began to shift, to believe in myself and the potential of my company, and somehow the steps I needed to take at every turn were there. It’s now been 2 years and although I still work with these products at times, I no longer am filled with doubt and discouragement. I see how everything Divinely aligned and is still aligning. Now when I use these products it’s not to pull me out of a deep rut but because I want to go higher, to come into even greater possibility – infinite possibility. These essences have helped me so much at a time I really needed it, and I am so grateful.”

Suggestions on Working with these Essences

Use daily with the intention of being open to whatever is in your highest interest to pursue. Clarity™ and Hope™ can be used at the same time, as Companion Essences (products formulated to enhance one another). It may be ideal to use them twice daily in tandem, morning and night, for those who prefer to be more regimented, or to carry with oneself throughout the day and use as needed. Since both essences are intended to be support products for challenging times, acute usage may be especially helpful in moments of confusion, sadness, frustration, or despair. They can also be helpful in lighter, brighter times to simply help align one with their highest possible outcome. Hope Essence™ sprayed over the temples, forehead, along the spine, sacral chakra (navel area), and backs of knees (and/or over any areas of tension or tightness and throughout the aura), and Clarity Essence™ over the heart and chest, throat, forehead, base of skull, backs of kidneys, and lower lung area (and/or throughout one’s aura) may be particularly effective. When using the essences acutely, it’s preferable to alternate them throughout the day as needed (within 15 minutes or more). For instance, you can use Hope Essence™ and wait 15 minutes, then follow it with Clarity Essence™ and wait 15 minutes, then use Hope again… and so on. Slowly doubling the time intervals until desired result is achieved. It may be helpful to take deep, expansive breaths after spraying each essence and reaffirming your intention to allow Divine guidance and direction, and allow hope and clarity to flow into your life (or whatever your intention with using the products might be).

It’s not necessary to spray all of the suggested areas at once. You can experiment with what areas work best for you, dowse or test yourself, or simply alternate topical locations as desired. Taken as drops, it can be helpful to take morning and night and/or to add 5-7 drops in a water bottle and sip throughout day. Drops can also be taken acutely when needed, alternated in the same way as the sprays. Remember essences are homeopathic in nature, and thus the adage ‘less is more’ applies. As is typical of human behavior, at least in the U.S. and many western cultures, we tend to “think” we need to use more. It’s not uncommon for people to essentially bathe in their new essence sprays (smile) and while this is safe (since our products are vibrational and do not impose overdose risks), your product will last longer when used as directed.
