Nourishment and strength come not only from physical sources of food, water and air. It is also the soul effluvia that flows into us from others—how one is ignited to act, to create, and to fruitfully collaborate with other living beings around us. Without being fully open and receptive for the energetic gift that comes from the social periphery, we miss much of the potential life offers for evolution and transformation. For many individuals, past wounds and disappointments in relationships – whether those in one’s personal, cultural or professional life – have resulted in hardened barriers of cynicism or seclusion. When human warmth and receptive potential for new social connections is stymied, one’s potential future is limited in the workplace, community, and family.
The Connect™ TerrAnoint™ Formula helps us to see beyond the illusion of separation, learning to take risks and build channels of exploration and adventure for social relationships in all aspects of life. The predominant underlying healing theme in this formula involves the ability to listen and to receive, to re-imagine what comes to meet us in the “other.” It cultivates the capacity to be curious, flexible and open to the many social possibilities that present themselves for the further enrichment and evolution of one’s life.
Star Jasmine, Lewisia and Fawn Lily – Nurturing the deepest spiritual aspirations for why we have come to Earth, the ideals and social longings that spark and sustain our connections with others
Mallow, Yellow Star Tulip and Calendula – Facilitating the ability to re-imagine and to receive the intentions and meanings of others, the ability to feel the soul as a chalice, receptive to how the “Other” appears in us, and what truly wants to be expressed
Spreading Phlox, Wisteria and Pussy Paws – The ability to feel the warmth of connection through one’s physical self, beyond the personalization of sexuality, as a real substance that nourishes and builds a greater reality of who one is and can become in the wider social fabric of work, community and greater family
Rosemary, Cinnamon, Juniper, Silver Fir and Cardamom – Building greater emanations of warmth from the physical to the social
Rose Otto - Nourishing the heart as the center point of social connectivity
