"Stay in the Pink with AURA-SOMA® Pink Pomander" by Caroline Flavin
Aura-Soma Colour Care system have a lovely set of little bottles called pomanders made from the energies of plants, crystals and colour created to keep the subtle energies around our body (our aura), cleansed, strengthened and protected.
We all brush our teeth in the morning for oral hygiene- but what about trying a little auric hygiene for cleansing the aura of stagnant thoughts, emotions and unwanted energies that we may have picked up. You can pop these easy-to-use, beautifully-fragranced vials into your pocket or handbag and apply them throughout the day. And they last for ages!
Try the pink pomander to envelop yourself in unconditional self love and acceptance, and to give and receive warmth and tenderness. Beautifull!
Contact Caroline on 085 222 7557 for Aura-Soma consultations, talks, courses and products. Next 8 week course on Colour, the Chakras and Aura-Soma Colour products begins January 2013.

"Testing the Water" by Nick Beckman
Welcome to the last newsletter article of 2012! These are exciting times and there is a lot of talk going on about the 21th of December 2012. However, let’s take a moment and focus on the Now, let’s focus on the most precious source on the planet - WATER. My initial intention was to write an article about improving drinking water, with different types of filters, water jugs, vortexes and implosion technologies and so on.
But before we get in to that, I think we need to take a step back and ask; ''Why do we need to improve or filter our tap water in the first place?'
Nick Beckman-Alaska Medenhall Glacier
– What’s in our water…?? Water is what gives, shapes and sustains life on Earth and is involved in virtually every process you can think of, and even in more processes you never would have thought about before. “If there is magic on this planet, it is contained in water” – Loren Eiseley. Water is connected to us, the planet and the cosmos and for water to properly do its ‘magic’ for our health and the environment it needs to be pure, clean and un-contaminated. That is where the issue starts, our modern lifestyle has caused our water resources to be so polluted that it is said that we only have about 1% of clean drinking water left on Earth. Then we spend billions on sending spaceships into the cosmos to look for water on other planets like Mars. Instead we should spend billions on how we can better manage the precious water resources we still have here at the moment. Now!

Products of the Month: Pine Essential Oil, The Transformation Board Game, A Gift of Love 2-Oceans of Ecstasy CD, ''The Aquarian Gospel of Jesus Christ''
Each month we will feature an essential oil, book, deck, and CD from the shop...
Products of the Month:
Essential Oil of the Month: Pine Oil (Pinus sylvestrus)
Seeing as it's that time of year! why not pay tribute to that beloved scent of Christmas that lingers even after the last needles have fallen from the Christmas tree... (of course the ideal would be to a plant a tree for every Christmas tree felled, but that's another article...)
Pine essential oil is the oil obtained from the tree commonly known as pine with the Latin name pinus sylvestris. It is believed that this tree originated from Austria and Russia and then spread in different parts of the world--the beloved Christmas tree. Normally pine essential oil is obtained using steam distillation. Fresh twigs and needles are used for extracting the oil. Cones of pine tree are also used by many manufacturers for obtaining the oil. Since pine is abundant in nature, the oil is very cheap and easily available.
The numerous health benefits of pine essential oil have made it one of the most important essential oils used in aromatherapy. Pine essential oil blends well with many other oils including cedarwood, rosemary, sage, juniper, etc., and hence can be widely used in making numerous aromatherapy preparations.
The health benefits of pine essential oil are attributed to its antibacterial, analgesic, diuretic, energizing, antiseptic, and aromatic properties.
Given below are some health benefits of pine essential oil:
Skin Care: The most important health benefit of pine essential oil is in treating various skin problems. Dermatologists often prescribe the oil in treating psoriasis, itching, pimples, eczema, skin diseases, poor skin, scabies, sores, and fleas. It gives you a balanced, smooth, renewed and shiny skin.
Cosmetics: Pine gives a sweet aroma to the cosmetics it is used in. It is also used in making perfumes and scents. It is also used in removing lice from hair. Pine essential oil is widely used as massage oil and bath oil. Hence it is used in soap making.
Metabolism: Pine essential oil also increases metabolism and thus boosts your activity levels. It is also helpful in purifying the body due to its ability to treat intestinal problems. It is diuretic and helps in removing water from your body.
Pain: Pine essential oil is analgesic and hence it is a good remedy for people suffering from joint pain, arthritis, and rheumatism.
Stress Disorder: Pine gives an energizing feeling and hence it is effective in removing mental stress. It is also used as a medicine for removing adrenal fatigue and refreshes your spirits as it is an excellent mood elevator. Regular massage with pine essential oil gives you mental clarity. It removes anxiety and nervous tension, and is useful for people suffering from loss of concentration and loss of memory.
Respiratory Problems: It is used in making cough and cold preparations.
Household products: Room sprays and room fresheners.
Internal consumption of pine essential oil can be dangerous as there is a possibility of kidney damage. It should also not be given to people who are suffering from kidney disorders. Further, pine essential oil can cause irritations on highly sensitive skin. Hence it must be used in diluted form. Children and elderly people should not be given pine essential oil as it may cause hypertension.

Board Game of the Month: The Findhorn Foundation Transformation Game
Well with all that spare time over the Christmas holidays-what better way to have fun with the family or friends than round a board game! Cures being bored with Christmas!
The Transformation Game® was developed originally by Joy Drake and Kathy Tyler at the Findhorn Foundation. Since the first Game workshop was offered there in 1978, thousands of people have played the Game in its various forms.
Sometimes life is filled with blessings, insights, and a heart-felt sense of connection with people around us. Other times we stumble through a series of setbacks, accumulating pain, even falling into depression; and nothing we try seems to help us get out of it. Sometimes someone unexpectedly appreciates us or offers to serve us – or we reach out to help another. Sometimes miracles happen, pain is lifted, new directions open up, and the seemingly impossible occurs.
Just as life is filled with this rich variety of experience, so is the Transformation Game®, a fun and complex board game which offers a playful yet substantial way of understanding and transforming key issues in your life. It can be played at varying levels of intensity, from a light-hearted way of gaining insight into yourself, to a tool to help solve problems, clarify important personal issues, or creatively enhance relationships.
CD of the Month: ''A Gift of Love 2-Oceans of Ecstasy'' by Deepak Chopra and friends
Give the one you love a musical treat for Christmas...Composer and Producer, Adam Plack's sensual grooves are laced with passion-soaked vocals, balearic beats, and intoxicating rhythms that have resulted in a dreamy, jasmine-infused musical soundtrack to Deepak Chopra's luminous translations of Tagore's verse.
Includes performances by Antonio Banderas, Sinead O' Connor, Angelica Huston, Marisa Tomei, Lisa Bonet, Milla Jovivich, Shekhar Kapur, Christy Turlington, Gina Gershon Sonja Sohn, Melanie Griffith, Jared Harris, Claude Challe, Kei Arita, Adriana Castelazo, and Gotham Chopra.
A thumbs-up from an Amazon customer: "A Gift of Love 2" is one of the most pleasurable pieces of meditative music since its counterpart "A Gift of Love vol 1". The music has soul-searching depth and is well complimented by the Nobel prize winning devotional poetry of Tagore. It is suitable as a soothing background music, very effective for meditation but with enough rhythm and interest for listening to in the car. The tunes stayed with me through the day and yet never got to be annoying. As with the first volume which used Rumi poetry, both these albums inspired me to read more of the poetry of Rumi and Tagore. In my view these are by far his best meditative CD's. This album will appeal to almost any age group although most suited to the thirties upwards. My friend and family love it and it has proved to be a popular gift especially with lovers of Deepak Chopra books''.

Book of the Month:''The Aquarian Gospel of Jesus Christ'' by Levi Dowling
As we approach the season which honours Him, this book presents a different story of Jesus Christ.
A fascinating account of Jesus' life and works; originally published in 1907, this unique book is practically a complete record of the words and works of the man of Galilee, including his 18 years of study and travel in the Orient. It covers his life from birth in Bethlehem to his ascension from the Mount Olives. It is a far-reaching work that brings to light the intimate details of Christ's life upon which the New Testament gospels are silent, written from the original "Akashic Records" by a student who devoted 40 years to prepare for the task.
Available in Dervish for €10
