Newsletter - August 2016
Our July newsletter Helping yourself and others struck a cord with many of you. For August we would like to offer this article written by Sabina Pettitt which reminds us to align with and remain connected to what is great and good within us.
Mother Teresa's Anyway Poem
People are often unreasonable, illogical and self centered;
Forgive them anyway.
If you are kind, people may accuse you of selfish, ulterior motives;
Be kind anyway.
If you are successful, you will win some false friends and some true enemies;
If you are honest and frank, people may cheat you;
Be honest and frank anyway.
What you spend years building, someone could destroy overnight;
If you find serenity and happiness, they may be jealous;
Be happy anyway.
The good you do today, people will often forget tomorrow;
Do good anyway.
Give the world the best you have, and it may never be enough;
Give the world the best you've got anyway.
You see, in the final analysis, it is between you and your God;
It was never between you and them anyway.
A couple of weeks ago my brother shared this poem from Mother Teresa with me. I had never seen it before and found it profoundly moving and also a new description for why we take essences - to find that inner alignment with our highest and best within ourselves.
No doubt each of us has our own inner critic and knows quite clearly when we are doing actions that are harmful to ourselves or others. This poem describes a morality of how to live with ease in our Body/Mind/Spirit. Moreover this morality resides in each of us and is available 24/7. It's like an inner compass. It is also a prescription for living a life of no regret - something to which I have aspired for many years. I don't want to find myself on my deathbed wishing that I had done something different and no longer having the resources to make those changes.
So when you find yourself attracted to an essence - either it's colour, or shape or description or any other aspect of its signature, consider perhaps that this Nature Spirit is calling to your inner light to assist you on your journey and just take it anyway.
It just may be your prescription for being who you can be and finding untold happiness and fulfilment.

During the month of August take advantage of our special 15% reduction on all of the Wild Earth Animal Essences. Good for internet orders only, while stocks last.
These essences are created by Daniel Mapel in the Blue Ridge Mountains in Virginia, USA since 1995. According to Daniel animal essences help us go deeper into ourselves and heal our emotional wounds. They help everyone to find his connection with the Earth and with his deep inner Being. Each essence contains the energetic imprint of the animal but no animal is captured or injured in the process.
The range is comprised of 93 individual essences, 31 combination essences and 4 sprays. Essences and combinations are available in 30ml stock strength dropper bottles. The sprays are 60ml and contain essential oils. They are for external use only.
Take a look at the new inner dog essences which were introduced a few months ago.
Daniel will give a workshop in Paris on 19-20 November.
