As this podcast goes to air we are in the energy of the new season of Autumn and a New Moon in Libra.
As we move through these comic transitions, now is the time to clean up your energy with an energy-clearing session. Schedule one in person or online. When you work with the energy body, it helps to release the old patterns and all that old stuff you’ve been crying around.
When you start going within and connecting to your soul and your spirit, you will find your answers.
Schedule a Spiritual Upgrade Breakthrough call with me and let’s talk about how my programs can help you.
In today’s episode, I wanted to offer another perspective on working with the elements and how ancient teachings are coming forward in our present lifetime. My guest is Lindsay Fauntleroy. She’s a medicine maker, educator, and author of, ” In our Elements: Soul Medicine to Unleash your Personal Power.”
In this episode, we talk about the five elements of the Chinese system, the element of Metal for the Fall, prayer boards, shared consciousness, money & honey, flower essences, and ways to support your own healing as well as the collective healing.
Lindsay Fauntleroy was drawn to the healing arts after her own journey to fertility introduced her to the interconnectedness of body, mind, and spirit. Her extensive training includes a Master of Arts from New York University, a Master of Science from Tri-State College of Acupuncture, and clinical training in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), Kiiko Matsumoto style Japanese acupuncture, and myofascial Trigger Point release.
Lindsay firmly believes that the power to heal should rest in the hands and hearts of all communities.
Her approach to soul medicine emerges from over 15 years of clinical practice, her Ph.D studies of Indigenous and African Diasporic psychology, and her commitment to community wellness. She provides practitioner certification in the sacred art and science of flower essence therapy, which she offers in loving partnership with the Flower Essence Society and the MINKA Mystery School. Lindsay’s line of alchemical Five Element flower essence remedies, the Elementals, are available nationally and internationally.
What kind of body and what kind of soul am I?
We can do everything on the surface and think we have everything. But if there’s something within us that is out of alignment, even if you reach the goal, the fertility, the job, the, whatever it is, that if you’re not in alignment, it really doesn’t matter.
These two things work together. Sometimes the material world is just an inspiration to do the inner work. Get into that soul energy and really check in and find out what is it.
Definitely sit still.
Sometimes it’s enduring the heartache or the pain or the discomfort while we’re waiting for something to show itself.
Four Sacred Elements – Air, Fire, Earth, Water.
Whereas the Chinese acupuncture system works in the five elements.
The Autumn Equinox brings us into the Metal element, which is essentially the fifth element of the five-element system that begins with Water… to Wood, to Fire, to Earth to Metal.
Late summer is considered the earth element.
The earth element is also the transition between each season.
Every season goes back to the earth to replenish before becoming the next season.
The prayer board is leaving space for the unknown… this or something better.
Flower essences we use to help us access the consciousness or the intentions of each of these elements of nature.
One of the soul lessons for the Metal element is being present, being in the present moment, and being in the now.
Essential oils are more for the etheric or the emotional body, because they are so effective at moving Chi.
Flower essences are taken internally as supplements. So you either put them in your water or put them in drops under your tongue and you ingest them. Instead of working more on the emotional body, they work more on our thoughts and perceptions.
Flower essences shift us to a perspective that is more in alignment with our highest good and our highest intention. They’re super subtle.
Lindsay’s hope is that people will use this book as a springboard. That they’ll be introduced to some things that work, and discover other things that work just as well, if not better.
We are all on this collective path of transformation together.
This book is for a tribe of folks that she calls Neo-Ancients. There are a lot of us who are out there that are calling on older ancient technologies, spiritual traditions, healing, traditions, complementary and alternative medicine.
What can we learn from our ancestors?
What can we learn from the people who were most connected with the earth?
Looking backward to look forward.
As Lindsay reminds us, “Soul Medicine helps us to make space for Spirit that is always trying to communicate with us. It allows us to make space for that to come in and drive and direct us.”
Yes…Make space for what is unknown to bring it in, into a spirit-driven community.
Check out Lindsay’s work, and her flower essences and get her book.
