“Here I came to the very edge
where nothing at all needs saying,
everything is absorbed through weather and the sea,
and the moon swam back,
its rays all silvered,
and time and again the darkness would be broken
by the crash of a wave,
and every day on the balcony of the sea,
wings open, fire is born,
and everything is blue again like morning. ”
~ Pablo Neruda
Have you been feeling it? Right now the earth is being bombarded by gazillions ( a technical term, I know…) of highly positively charged particles emitted from the sun during an unusual burst of solar flare activity. It affects the negative ionic charge of our planet’s crust, causing it to hold a positive charge and making it impossible for us to earth ourselves. Animals (including humans) can feel restless, unwell for no good reason, depressed or anxious, listless, confused or have trouble sleeping.
The effects of this recent solar flare activity will last about two weeks.
Here are some suggestions for grounding yourselves and bringing your body back into electromagnetic balance.
Tired, flat battery, unwell? Use this remedy:
Your symptoms may include physical fatigue, nausea, aches and pains, mental exhaustion, despair, brain fog, depression, anxiety, worry, confusion etc. Find a clear quartz, carnelian and hematite crystal. Cleanse and charge them by holding them in your hand and visualising white light pouring into them. Place them in your pocket or under your pillow while you sleep.
Wired, hyperactive, and ungrounded? Use this remedy:
Your symptoms may include hyperactivity, brittleness, tired but wired, over-enthusiasm, mania, that feeling of going too fast, not being able to sit still or to settle down and concentrate, being ungrounded and not quite yourself, too many ideas but can’t commit to anything etc. Find a black tourmaline and a nice earthy jasper (go with what you are drawn to – there are so many lovely jaspers to choose from!) Once again, cleanse and charge them by holding them in your hand and visualising white light pouring into them. Place them in your pocket or under your pillow while you sleep.
Note: Don’t place your crystals on the ground, in the sun, or in water right now. Wait for the solar flare to pass. Charge and energise them with sound or white light instead.
There are certain foods that will help to ground and energetically reorient your body. Iodine (from seaweed or as a supplement), a mineralised natural salt (like Himalayan or celtic), lots of water, root vegetables, cooked greens, butter and other good fats such as eggs and avocados, soups and stews made with bones, well soaked and cooked legumes and rice, heavy breads and sourdoughs. Tea is also good, and you may well need extra magnesium as a supplement to soothe those frazzled nerves..
Avoid coffee, sugar and stimulants, refined and processed foods, cold and raw foods and fruits unless the fruit is stewed or served with something heavy such as cream.
Be gentle with yourself. This is not all in your head, and energetically sensitive people are particularly susceptible to the more uncomfortable aspects of solar flares.
Useful Essential Oils:
Vetiver Oil on soles of feet for grounding.
Cedarwood Oil on soles of feet and back of neck to ground and to ease emotional distress. Will also help with insomnia.
Lavender Oil on temples, throat, wrists and soles of feet to soothe and calm you, and for emotional support.
Frankincense on Crown Chakra, Third Eye Chakra and back of neck for strong psychic connection and insights during this time of energetic flux.

Ways to make the most of the positive aspects of these energies:
Meditation, writing and art, journalling and inner journey work are all things that can be very productive during solar flares. In this time of energetic upheaval we can often find great clarity and self-illumination.
