While we tend to associate prosperity primarily with money, fortune is another concept entirely. How do we define fortune, not by what the dictionary says, but by how we personally interpret it? Generally, there's an element of luck, of destiny, for some people fate, and a general idea that good things can really "just happen." Along with knowledge of this element, comes an acceptance and surrender to the idea that some things are a mystery, that mystery can provide goodness, and even deliver it to right our doorstep! Implicit in this acceptance is the belief that there is fortune available for you. Hope, optimism and eternal renewal are all contained within the consciousness of the word fortune.
While the word fortune is usually considered to be something external that happens outside of you and to you, we posit that it also holds a vibration within you, as a state of consciousness, characterized as opportunity, potential and creativity. Working with the concept of fortune is a skill, a craft that must be learned, in order to apply it successfully to your life. It involves timing and that which we call luck; it is internally initiated because it involves wisdom, knowing your true desires and resonance. Working with fortune from this state of being, gives you the prowess to uncover new avenues of action, new possibilities for success and a knowledge of personal timing and implementation.
We've created a Prosperity blend with Fortune in mind. Made with a sublime Patchouli oil, this is not your 1960's overly musky, sticky Patchouli. Those were usually made with synthetic chemicals and low grade oils. Ours, a dark Organic Patchouli from Indonesia, falls more within the category of Sandalwood, Ylang Ylang and Vetiver: Slightly smoky and musky, with a hint of sweetness and floral undertones. It's gorgeous; even those who believe they hate Patchouli may have their 'aroma memory' reprogrammed with this one!
Enjoy as an after shower all over moisturizer, or use on location, with intention, as a perfume or cologne. A scent for both men and women, this blend of Organic Olive and Sunflower Oils will create supple, smooth skin, promote muscle tone and relaxation, while grounding into the body. Patchouli is also a great tantric and aphrodisiac oil, spiritually nourishing, may ease depression and promotes optimism.
Patchouli, native to Southeast Asia, has many historical uses, including as a moth repellent; its main use is for skin care: Eczema, dermatitis, acne, oily or dry, chapped skin and vein health all benefit from Patchouli essential oil, especially when blending with Organic Olive and Sunflower Oil, as found in these Blessing Oils. It is also used as a base note in many fine perfumes; and as aromatherapy, Patchouli is said to bring forth creativity from the heart, mind and spiritual center, working together in an integrated way. It is revitalizing, calming and balancing for body and mind. Energetically, it quickly and effortlessly dispels negative energy, and cleanses the energy body after a long day.
Traditionally, Patchouli plant is used in rituals for prosperity. Perhaps this is due to its ability to cleanse the energy body and the mind, helping you to resonate with the vibration of that which you wish to create. Patchouli may also help to open your mind to more possibilities, keeping you focused on the vibration of potential, also a factor in prosperity.
Patchouli Prosperity includes Basil Flower Essence, known for its ability to mend the rift between our earthly and spiritual selves, as well as the split of sexuality and spirituality. Certainly, this healing helps you to prosper, bringing your full life force, creative powers and emotional strengths into alignment with your will and your thoughts. Basil is also known to promote courage in endeavors, and to protect spiritual seekers from fears encountered on their path. It encourages experiencing sacred wholeness; this includes money and the material realm: The body, physical health and longevity. Activating inherent latent potential in human beings, is a component of prosperity; flourishing or prospering implies full bloom, full capacity, complete realization from within.
Since this blend is also a Blessing Oil, it carries with it the vibration of Blessing. A blessing can be characterized as a way of organizing and bringing forth that which has 'goodness'. A blessing is not about taking away, getting rid of, climbing or struggling. A blessing inherently holds good fortune, by definition. There is no negative blessing, the way there is negative karma, negative vibes or other concepts that hold duality within them. A blessing is, in and of itself, about expanding its own good nature. Blessing + Prosperity=Well, you do the math; let us know what you find out! (:
Look for the following, when working with Patchouli Prosperity Blessing Oil:
- Notice new ideas and things in your environment that you never 'seen' before, or seeing them differently
- Finding great deals or sales; making changes in your outlook about what you want
- Meeting new people or finding yourself drawn to different venues and activities
- A changing definition of prosperity, to one that is deeper, more personal; feeling the richness of life at a cellular level
- Expanding definition of prosperity, to include health, relationships and spiritual bounty
- Connection of prosperity and the material world/money, to the idea of fortune as an internal force, not only an external whim that you are waiting for. That it is a force with both elements: Internal and external.
- Being willing to change your beliefs about whether something is possible, including changing tactics in how you go about getting or having something you want. Seeing other roads demands you let go of an outdated idea first.
