Breathing Easy Into Spring

 Spring is upon us, we will meet the spring equinox on March 20, 2016 12:30 EDT when the moon is at 23* of Leo and the sun is ingressing into PIsces.
As lovely as that is, we are now under an arctic blast up in Northeast Ohio, after having been pretty much spared our normally harsh winter with plenty of snow and shoveling.
What else is upon us, are the nasty colds, bronchitis and flu’s that don’t want to leave and in some cases, seem to have set up their own personal camp.
But you have what you need, if you have ArcAncient’s Breathing Easy © and Sinus relief © and so does anyone lucky enough to be in your circle!
Most of you know, that when I died, laying in that hospital bed unmoving save for being moved, I was a prime candidate for pneumonia and got a terrible case during that hospital stay.
It was God awful let me tell you, having to use the breathing apparatus, making my hurting lungs try to expand, it feels as though they are in a lead vise.
My stomach being completely cut open, seriously…open the entire length of my stomach, stem to sternum, and being forced to cough, to move that leaden blanket around my chest, which also made my stomach heave, so I had to try to hold both at the same time without spilling my guts out…through the bandaging.
So, when I say that I know what it is like to be very sick,  perhaps you might understand a bit more, why it is that I do what I do.
Why it is important that everything is of the most exquisite ingredients (pure organic essential oils and jojoba as carrier, that is also organic) possible ingredients, because I use them myself and have now for over 20 years.
So have many other people, yourselves included, and can you imagine being without this crucial helper when you feel something coming on, let alone when you actually come down with something?
I cannot.  I don’t want to think what it would be like, not to be able to reach for my Breathing Easy, simply remove the cap, roll it around my throat and chest, on a tissue to continue to inhale deeply, and yes, I am many others I have learned, roll it right inside of my nose.
I have since, used Breathing Easy (c) successfully to safely and naturally heal through bouts of pneumonia, bronchitis and other more minor ailments, such as any of the common colds that have trafficked through the area and so have many, many others by now.  There are so many success stories, stories of people with COPD, using this roll on from ArcAncient; like Pat, who planned on retiring within the month because of COPD, and who ended up working another year and a half, and who could only sleep, because of Breathing Easy.  There are so many stories...
In fact, another true story I tell, is of a friend of mine, Linda Green’s experience, sharing a Breathing Easy with one of the Shaman’s in Machu Pichu.  She explains that he wanted to see the Breathing Easy and he shoved the whole bottle up his nose and snorted it so she said he could just ‘keep it for himself now’…lol.  ~ Yes, even a genuine shaman wanted the Breathing Easy that bad.
With over 11 different pure essential oils, this blend is a must have, and if you feel that way, share your own story, your own comfort in knowing that you have that to rely on to help you through a rough patch.
Not only will this help you through a sickness, should you come down with something, it will help boost the immune system, and rolled on the throat and chest, will help keep you from getting sick too.
The leader in this blend, is of course, RAVENSARA.
I spoke with Dr. James Duke about his favorite oils and herbs to use, and he confirmed to me the importance of Ravensara.
(He also has a list that I have included below)

To this, we add a couple drops of ArcAncient’s pure, organic lemon essential oil and some local honey.  (The stuff in supermarkets is often not even honey).

Though there is plenty to substantiate the miracles of honey, here is some additional info: BULGARIA: Noting that honey is effective against colds, flu, and other respiratory infections, as well as immunodepression, Buhner recalls a Bulgarian study of 17, 862 patients showing that honey helped allergic and chronic rhinitis, asthmatic bronchitis, bronchitis, and sinusitis (Buhner, 1999)
LATIN AMERICAN: Among Latinos, Amazonians use Motelo sanango stems and roots decocted with wild bee honey for female sterility. Maidenhair infusion is mixed with honey as expectorant, for rheumatism, and colds, heartburn, and sour stomach. Andeans use agave leaf tea with honey as a collyrium for conjunctivitis. Bolivians use century plant with honey for bruises, gonorrhea, internal tumors, nephritis, rheumatism, and tuberculosis. Bolivians gargle pineapple decoction with honey for angina, sore throat, and tonsilitis. Choco Indians mix papaya latex with honey as a vermifuge. Haitians use the Haiti Catalpa leaf tea with honey to relieve angina. Panama natives put copaiba mixed with honey in newborne mouths to impart knowledge and ward off hexes; also used for VD. Amazons mix bitter cane (Costus) stem juice with honey for cough, colds, and whooping cough.

Bolivians use calabash decoction with honey to bring on the menstrual period. Peruvians take calabash jelly (hot fruit juice with honey and lemon) for bronchosis and cough. Chileans steep Winter’s Bark leaf in boiling water with honey as a stomachic tonic. Peruvians macerate ripe genipaps in rum with honey, for rheumatism. Haitians mix sweet potato root, honey and sulfur for cough. Peruvians use lantana leaf decoction with honey, garlic, and onion for bronchosis and cold (DAV). Hondurans cook Peruvian basil root with anise and honey cardiac pain and cough. A shot of chuchuhuasi with aguardiente and honey was given many ecotourists on departure from the Iquitos airport in 1991. All survived withdrawal from the Amazonian rain forest. And many came back, habituated. Latinos gargle leaf decoction with lemon and honey for sore throat. Peruvians apply matico leaves in honey to leishmanial sores. There is the strange mix of stinging hairs (Mucuna) in honey ingested to dislodge worms. Amazonians take honey with andiroba, black pepper, copaiba, and sugar, for bronchitis, coughs, laryngitis and pharyngitis. Bolivians use paud’arco leaf tea with honey as a tonic. Peruvians take Tecoma floral tea with honey as diuretic, pectoral, and sudorific (Source: Duke, JA; Vasquez Martinez, R. 1994. Amazonian Ethnobotanical Dictionary (Peru). CRC Press, Inc., Boca Raton, FL. 215 pp., and Duke, JA, Bogenschutz-Godwin, MJ, and Ottesen, A. 2008. Duke’s Handbook of Medicinal Plants of Latin America. CRC Press, Boca Raton, FL. 901pp).
NORTH AMERICAN: Dan Moerman was kind enough to print out from his database the entries that involved honey among, e.g., the Cahuila, Cherokee, Diegueno, Navajo (floral honey), and Rappahannock Native Americans. Most often it seems to be added to medicinal herbs as a tonic or for asthma, coughs, colds pertussis, and sorethroat. Moerman’s printout includes no mention of topical use for burns, infections, or sores. (Moerman, Daniel E. 1998. Native American Ethnobotany. Timber Press, Portland, OR. 927 pp.) ~ Excerpts from Dr. James Duke, Green Pharmacy

HERBS Additionally recommended by Dr. James Duke, formerly a scientist working with the USDA, living with indigenous people all over the world and studying what they use to heal naturally.  They took back the plant material and de-constituated it to find the medicinal properties that they would then try to replicate as best as they can in many instances, the root source for so much of our drugs today.

Turmeric or its major active ingredient curcumin are active against CVB3, FHI, FIPV, Flu, HBV, HCV, Herpes, HIV, Japanese encephalitis, papilloma, parainfluenza; Respiratory Syncytial Virus, Vescicular Stomatitis Virus.
That is directly from James Duke’s website.  Dr. Duke also recommends Milk thistle, which is also a good tonic for the liver, and we want that working in top order.
We also use: Echinacea, and another great herbalist, Rosemary Gladstar designed, Traditional Medicinal’s, so for a half-way decent herbal tea from your local grocery store, try her Echinacea tea.
Increase Garlic and onion intake.
Take a good Vitamin C (not just ascorbic acid) at least 1,000 mg.
Ginger will also add some heat to the system/digestion keeping you running smother than sluggish.
Dr. Duke also recommends the following: Bilberry, Celery seed (think chicken soup), Evening primrose, Ginkgo, Hawthorn, Horse chestnut, Kava kava, Saw palmetto, and St. John's wort

Prescription From An Angel

We are in the critical time, when we MUST BRING FORTH, that which we came to give birth to, to midwife, to be born through us on this planet.  No more waiting.
If something irritates you where you are or in what you do, be the change agent, or find those who will help you give birth to that place.  Which character are you in the play?  The idea?  The generator?  The structure/organizer?  The motivator?  The activator?  The person who puts it into play, action?
To answer some of these questions, I recall one of my angel visits, and that life-lesson that changed my own life completely.
It was at my third workshop with Jeannie Rose and Barbara Bobo, and some other wonderful teachers.
We were all sitting around the table, up in Barbara’s barn (about 27 women or so).
Jeannie had just finished teaching about Helichrysum… (helio’s ‘sun’ and chrysum ‘to anoint’) and she was distilling Geranium (Pelargonium Graviolens) and describing the healing properties.  Among the many healing properties, she started to describe the healing powers for internal sexual organs.
I was a gasp.
As she described the properties…I couldn’t help myself, I said out loud,
"But you can’t actually heal the ORGAN, THAT IS INTERNAL?”
(I was thinking to myself, I can understand relieving pain, helping breathing, headaches, sinus…all of that made easy sense to me.  But not an internal organ?  I already had a hysterectomy…which meant that I would not be able to heal, it was already too late for me.)

As I said that out loud, about half a dozen women turned and looked at me, and said: “Yes, you can!”….

I recoiled
I began to shake as the tears were fighting their way out of me…I got up and went outside...I began heaving and sobbing.
I was so hurt.

How could this be?  How could something over 5,000 years old be available to heal me naturally?  Yet…NO ONE WAS TALKING ABOUT THIS?
What? (This was back in 1994)

I had taken other herbal classes, etc., my first being back in the early 80’s, with the Grand Dame of Herbalism, Hannah Kroeger.

But never did I completely realize that I could heal internal organs, for real, the thought was always more to keep healthy and heal lesser ailments I guess the block was in the name Aroma-therapy?
As I sobbed…a light came upon me, just like the sun coming up over the horizon.  It was the Angel Gabriel.
I was still so hurt…I objected his urging…at first, but in a matter of seconds, all of those emotions swirled through me…I know it sounds horrid that I would reject an angel at first, but this is just being honest with you, the ache inside of me was too great, but I eventually acquiesced and I accepted the request to share. Gabriel…continued…in a very gentle voice…”Gloria, it might be too late for you, but it won’t be too late for you to help a lot of other women”…
I said, “Okay, if that is what you want me to do God”…(As I have reluctantly done so many times before, often trying to invoke the concept that; "Look at me God, I am sooo not the candidate for you"...and yet....oh well.

I put myself back together and went back into the class, slinking around the back and finding my chair.  After a few moments had gone by, a woman, “Linda Honeycutt-LeGrand” from South Carolina, walked over to me holding a paper to her chest.
She said to me, “Miss Gloria, when you came back in, the angel Gabriel, was holding you, and I drew this picture of him, and wanted to share this with you, if you accept”…

It was a beautiful drawing of the Angel.
She saw him with me.  I was witnessed.  (This same woman would witness with me several things that are extremely profound and which I discuss in my book)…
Anyway…that was it.

It is time to stop calling our life giving ability ‘the curse’…when it is our POWER. 

The blend that came, is a blend of 13 different oils.
WiseWoman was made for endometriosis and menopause, but it has such strong anti-inflammatory and analgesic properties, it is really good (rolling it on the area) to relieve pain and swelling for almost anything.
So, thank you.
This is the story of WiseWoman, of which you are ONE or you may be the Wise Man, who is strong and protects that Wise Woman in your life, so she feels safe to create, to create and feather your nest, your castle.  We need men strong enough to empower women, who are not threatened by the creative power and juices of a woman, because we NEED YOU STRONG MEN!
That blend, became ‘WiseWoman’…because of all the wise women who I sat with that day, the healers of the old.  We have been carrying this energy for lifetimes.
What is Helichrysum oil?  Let us look a bit closer:
HELICHRYSUM (Helichrysum Angustifolium)
DESCRIPTION: A highly aromatic herb, grows up to 24in. high with a many-branched stem, the base is very woody.
Brightly yellowish coloured flowers reminiscent of daisies.
EXTRACTION: Essential Oil by steam distillation from the fresh flowers and flowering tops.

RESPIRATORY SYSTEM: Asthma, bronchitis, chronic or whooping cough.
IMMUNE SYSTEM: Bacterial infections, colds, flu's, fever.
NERVOUS SYSTEM: Anger, depression, debility, lethargy, nervous exhaustion, neuralgia, stress related conditions and disorders.
DIGESTIVE SYSTEM: Liver congestion, spleen congestion.
CIRCULATION, MUSCLES & JOINTS: Muscular aches and pains, rheumatism, sciatica, sprains, strained or pulled muscles.

PROPERTIES: Anti-allergenic, anti-catarrhal, anti-coagulant, anti-inflammatory, anti-microbial, antioxidant, antiseptic, antispasmodic, antitussive, astringent, diuretic, expectorant, fungicidal, hepatic, nervine.
PRINCIPAL CHEMICAL CONSTITUENTS: Carophyllene (Sesquiterpenes), Neryl Acetate (Terpene Esters), Nerol (Monoterpenes), Geraniol, Pinene, Linalol.

If we look just at the colour, that beautiful sun spinning on the tops of their green stems, we see it

relates to the sun.  The colour yellow, is associated with the 'Solar Plexus' chakra, with FIRE, digestion and what we can 'stomach', our ego, and our 'gut instinct'...
It represent the liver, which is our major clean up organ...helping us to heal wounds and to regenerate. 
So, in cases of IN-FLAMMATION, we want something that relates to FIRE, and this is one of the best to reduce inflammation and deliver amazing pain relief, IMMEDIATELY USING ESSENTIAL OIL, BUT MOST SPECIFICALLY IN THE WISEWOMAN © BLEND FROM ARCANCIENT, it contains 13 essential oils in the magical blend as it was given by Archangel Gabrielle, to share and help ‘a lot of other women/people’.
Is it only for women?  NO, it is for anyone who suffers from pain and inflammation.  It has provided almost instant relief for sciatica sufferers, carpal tunnel, and of course, neck and shoulders that are tight and sore, also find that wonderful relief, just from rolling it on and massaging into the skin.  It is simply lovely.
Obviously, it also does wonders for Endometriosis sufferers too, which it was initially created for, simply roll on the abdomen and back, massage into the area affected, and without even getting out of bed, you can alleviate that pain and discomfort, and start the day on a much better note.
So, if you have swelling, pain, etc., this is your go to blend.
In the meantime, you are naturally attending to your own essence, your ‘esse’…which of course, means to be or to exist, so where are you?  Where do you come alive?
As the stone is rolled out, that Christed being is baptized into the world anew, after ‘dying to this world’…so what are you prepared to leave behind that no longer works for you?
The 3rd Chakra also relates to anger…all that fire trapped inside the body, looking for a way out…and the body feels that distress and sends out the body’s natural chemicals to help heal and protect the body.
I am also a believer, that depression, is ‘trapped information’ that is so depressed back into the body/system, it weighs u down.  The same as a gift, that is stored in the vault of your being, bring out that gift.  It is life-giving and so as it happens, I can look back and see how amazing a blend is, much more so than its original design, but the Angelic and Devic Livingdoms, desire to help us, to mid-wife our beautiful spirit and that unique signature that is ours alone.
Once, that stone is finally rolled away from the crypt, and we birth into this world, an anointed light-being, and the river of life flows through us again, and we bless the world with the MUSE-IC of our soul.  Only you have that blue-print.
Once we give birth, to the dream that birthed us, we move back into the flow with new life and our evolutionary being realizes itself…this brings true awareness.  Awe of RA, aw Ra ness.
The other major problem we face on this planet, is the extra-ordinary amounts of pollutants and heavy metals…Helichrysum is THE BEST DETOXIFYING OIL, helping to cleanse the system.
So light up your world, anoint that essence within you, and COME ALIVE, WE HAVE BEEN WAITING LIFETIMES FOR YOU!

points of pain, and using the Arthritis & Fibromyalgia Cream © on the entire body.  In addition, the use of Sleep Angel © will help you finally get that good deep sleep, to rejuvenate and heal.  We have so many testimonials over the past 20 years, but each one brings tears of joy to my eyes.
