Mid-Winter Mystical Dance

 

Mid-Winter Mystical Dance 

 

Saturday 21st December, The Bridge Family Centre, St Saviours  7-9.15pm

Gather together with like minded hearts and souls with powerful presence, intent and celebration for this special time of year.
 
In Latin, solstice (mid winter) means ‘sun set still’ and Winter Solstice is the great stillness before the Sun’s strength builds, and days grow longer.
 
We will begin with an optional shared feast at 5pm and then at 7pm we will dance consciously into the fruitful dark out of which new life can eventually emerge. Everything lies dormant in the silent night, a sacred time of rest before the awakening, and the slow build toward longer days. We will also move in celebration for the sun that starts a new cycle at winter solstice and acknowledge the suns rays shining into the dark and nurturing the new life there to be cultivated.
 
This is an offering for life, and also an acknowledgment of the work of Extinction Rebellion Jersey, to gather and celebrate this potent dreaming time and the nourishing movement we have growing in strength here in Jersey.

 

Wild Earth Dance “Conscious Dance”

This is a dance that cleanses your mind with sweat and breath, laughter and prayer. We let go of conversation, dissolve into movement, drop deep into the body and discover the anatomy of the soul. We will move through personal exploration into a loving, intimate relationship body, mind, heart, and source energy and awaken our imaginations together in a field of connected dreaming. We are powerful creative beings and the dance facilitates in us a liberation of that beautiful power and intent.

 

This dance will be facilitated by Maria Barnicoat, who first began hosting conscious dance back in 2008 (read my journey here).

 

Everyone is welcome!

COST: BY DONATION on the NIGHT

The dance will be preceded by a shared vegetarian meal from 5-7pm.

Please bring a dish to contribute and huddle amongst like hearted souls for a tasty feast before we move in celebration.

 

 

Self-Love Gathering

SELF LOVE GATHERING WITH BEAUTIFUL TOOLS TO CREATE EMOTIONAL VIBRANCY and GOOD SELF ESTEEM.

Join us on this powerful Autumn Equinox to immerse into peace and wellbeing. We will be sharing meditation, breathing techniques and essential oil ‘tools’ for you to reconnect with and nurture yourself.
When it comes to our emotions and thoughts, by cultivating care and love for ourselves we can transform the way we think, feel and respond to life pressures and extremes. By cultivating care and love, we build our courage and resilience to life. Our world around us does not actively support this and so we have this opportunity to build these self-love practices into our culture and lives.

In our peaceful and nurturing gathering we will:
* Experience deity meditation, using breathing techniques and essential oils to produce ‘calm’ and ‘grounded’ hormones (brain chemistry).
* Feel almost an immediate DE-STRESSing of our body’s chemistry, and lowering our cortisol level (cortisol being a premature aging stress hormone).
* Understand together how the power of NO is a wonderful self-love tool and how our YES’s have become worthless in our society because of our cultural lack of boundaries.
* Learn about the powerful oils to use when RE-CREATING healthier ways to think with affirmations (creating a healthier ‘brain road map’).
* Learn what we need to generate a good nights SLEEP.
* HOW TO apply and blend the highest quality essential oils in our daily rhythms to support our hormonal fluctuations and emotional extremes.
Date: Saturday 21st September
Time: 7.00-9.30pm

Natural Migraine Relief

MIGRAINE RELIEF 

After many many years of suffering the dreaded M word, I have managed to not only massively reduce the frequency and duration of these migraines I get, but also remedy them when they are in action (the hardest part – once they start they have a life force of their own which is adamant to play its full term out!).

My story:

I think I was around 9 or 10 when I started getting frequent migraines. I had suffered the odd terrible headache and possibly migraine before that, but this was the age I remember they really put their hooks into my life. I relied heavily on painkillers and off course darkened rooms with no noise.

Back then I actually had a diet massively lacking in fresh fruit and vegetables and instead heavily processed foods. I literally never drank water. My main drink supply during childhood was squash, or later on it was sweet soda drinks like coke and irn bru.

My digestion wasn’t so good but I don’t remember much about that and didn’t have chronic symptoms that I remember until my teens when I started to become bloated and have bad acne and hormonal issues.

It has taken this long to find my triggers and do something long term about them (I’m now 42). Medication stopped working for me many years ago, it was hit and miss and I officially binned the painkillers about 3-4 years ago.

What works for me to prevent them:

Lots of water

A diet FULL of fresh fruit and vegetables.

Back neck and should massages

Good sleep

Foods I have reduced massively and are my triggers:

Strawberries

Smoked Salmon (this was the only processed food I was eating)

Fatty Foods/Rich foods/Too many different combination foods

Cooked tomatoes

Red Wine

(These are all foods which are high histamine – research high histamine foods to see which others you might need to avoid or reduce).

What I do when I have a migraine starting:

I use doTERRA CPTG Essential Oils – the purest on the planet: Peppermint and Lavender almost neat around my entire hairline, forehead and back of the neck every hour. Some people also swear by Copaiba and also Frankincense. Also a blend that doTERRA do called Past Tense is also very effective and worth a try. One size does not fit all so its good to experiment and see. Click here to enter my shop, or send me an email to mariaearthbeauty@gmail.com to arrange a 1-2-1 consultation in person or on skype.

Very Cold Coconut Water (2 litres to be drunk within a couple of hours of each other) – you can watch the video below and see why this works.  I came across this accidentally as I found I was CRAVING coconut water and it seems there’s scientific evidence as to why this helps!

Water with 2 drops of CPTG Peppermint Oil

A strong black coffee

ALSO:

There is a link with people that get migraines and not having enough GABA in the diet. Research this and see if this could be you.

Structural issues and more serious issues can also cause migraines (especially new ones out of the blue), so its good to check this out too. I know regular migraines are also a nice preventative for me.

Also, see Dr Michelle Stanton’s Research and finding into Migraines on YouTUBE.

This talks a lot of the importance of electrolyte balance and the hyper excitability of a migraine brain. Interesting.

Winter Solstice Sweat Lodge with Melanie Wartho

During solstice we are in transition, moving from the darkest time into the time of more light.

Entering the sweat lodge at this time will help us to make this transition with more ease, as in the lodge we are shedding what is no longer needed in our lives and gaining insight into the best that we can do in the future. We are leaving behind the old and creating a space for the new to come flooding in. Join us in celebration of this time and welcome all the best in with love!

During this ceremony, we separate for a time from the physical world and go within ourselves to be able to see with clarity what needs to be healed or resolved and pray for guidance from the ancient grandmothers and grandfathers who have walked the Earth before us. We allow ourselves to connect directly with their wisdom and the original memory that resides within us all.

Everyone is welcome. 

 

Date: Sunday 23rd December 2018

Time: 13.15 til 16.30

Bring: women – a loose fitting dress, men – shorts for inside the lodge, water or hot tea for drinking before and after, warm clothes for after the lodge and willingness to let go and receive our mothers blessings

Where: Behind the Steam Museum in Trinity. Full directions will be sent after booking.

Cost: £25

Concessions Available. Please contact translatemontanita@gmail.com

About Melanie Wartho:
Mel has been living and working in South America for 23 years, during this time she has travelled extensively in Argentina, lived in Bolivia, travelled through Central America and lived in Ecuador and ultimately Peru. It is during her time in Ecuador that she first chose to work closely with local Shamen and healers for her own personal healing, as she progressed she began to facilitate the healing of others and learn more about the old traditions and the wisdom of the indigenous peoples of the Americas. She has been working with native healers and shamen now for 13 years. She embarked upon a Vision Quest following the tradition of the Lakota people and has also completed 4 years of Sundance, she has studied with a Shuar healer in the jungle of Ecuador, and ultimately has spent 2 years working with and learning from Shamen in the jungle of Peru. She brings with her a lot of the knowledge and wisdom of the people who are still very connected to nature, working with plant medicines and listening to what nature has to tell us.

Let Your Wild Woman Rise

wildwomanToday is Beltaine! Day of fertility, new life, adorning the feminine, attracting new lovers and renewing our current loves, celebrations of warm long days.  I spent much of the day reflecting. It didn’t occur to me earlier, whilst reflecting that it was actually Beltaine but my thoughts were very much with fertility today.

Why?

Perhaps because I see many women with fertility issues.

Why do they have fertility issues?

In truth, almost 100% of the women I see are in some way blocking their feminine expression in exchange of being high fliers in their workplace.  Women in Jersey, are being carried along by the need to succeed, the need to achieve, the need to be active and to make their mark in the world with their careers.  All women I see with fertility issues are big list writers, they like to be in control, they like to have things organised, compartmentalised, so that they can keep doing more more more, to keep their lives as they are, with their flats, houses, mortgages to pay  ….

Hang on – didn’t women used to be frivolous, creative, wild, connected to nature, the moon, mothers of new life?

YES!!! We’ve lost our essence and we’re suffering physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually! And so is our island.  We’re dishonouring the sacred temples of our bodies in exchange for more ticks on our lists.  Our bodies are stagnant and craving to be shaken up, stirred, pushed to our edges and filled up with life.  We’ve become half woman, half men … and we wonder why our passion is low, why we don’t feel excited … why we secretly crave to live the adorning life of Cleopatra for a day.  We long to be frivolous, we’ve forgotten how to play, how to let ourselves go and be carried away by our creative natures.

Divine feminine energy represents these aspects within the universe:
Restoration, life, renewal, creation, birth, healing, receptivity, openness, motherhood, nurturing, love, understanding, compassion, insight, intuition, wisdom, forgiveness, the moon, connection, harmony and sensuality. To allow the divine feminine within ourselves to surface, we need to search for these aspects within ourselves. You will find that you are more in touch with some aspects of your divine feminine nature and less in touch with others. For example, you may be fully in touch with your own sensuality but not in touch with motherhood. If this is the case, expressing the divine feminine within you, means connecting with and expressing the latent motherhood within you in your own unique way.

Reflect and Enquire.  What can I do to embrace my feminine?

Find ways to cultivate the above qualities.  Ask yourself “what makes me feel alive?”

Ask yourself “what would make my body a more fertile place for new life?”

Ask yourself “How can I be more sensual?”

Ask yourself “am I ashamed or afraid of shining in my feminine essence?” “Am I afraid I’ll be judged?”

Why would I be afraid of being judged?

Maybe because modern day Jersey society generally places your value and worth on how much you are achieving – not on WHO you are.

Ohhhhh!

Indeed.

Ladies, pamper yourselves, get in touch with yourselves, dance, make yourselves feel feminine, get together with other ladies, commit to healing the feminine in you and give yourself all the compassion to yourself that you can when you finally feel the pain of the separation from your sacred feminine.

And then RISE and celebrate your new birth!

Infrared Addition to Earth Beauty

I’m excited to announce that I am now using infrared technology alongside bodywork treatments and organic facials!

What is this all about??

Infrared Heat

  • Thermal infrared heat rays are the same type of heat the sun emits. Infrared light, which is invisible, can be felt as warmth entering your body. The rays increase the surface temperature of the body and activate positive cellular changes. The light energy changes to thermal heat energy and promotes healing and a feeling of well-being.

Research and Development

  • Infrared light developed from LED technology made for the NASA space shuttle. The invention was originally designed for researching plant growth in space. In research studies, doctors at Milwaukee’s Medical College in Wisconsin discovered the light has the power to heal wounds and is beneficial in cancer treatment.

Therapeutic Benefits

  • Thermal heat dilates, or expands, blood vessels and increases blood circulation. This, in turn, helps facilitate the healing process. Infrared heat therapy aids in promoting greater tissue flexibility, reduces inflammation and decreases joint pain.  This type of therapy is beneficial for many ailments including, arthritis, back pain, Fibromyalgia and tendinitis. Light therapy has also been shown to generate vitamin D in the body.
