Affirmation - Love, Good Fortune & Life Abundant Are My Birthright
This essence was produced and given to Morningstar by Healer Elly van
Ekelenburg of The Netherlands and we are extremely grateful to her,
both for her wonderful gift of this essence as well as the healing and
support it has brought into my own life.
Here is Elly's account of the production of this essence told in her
own word and there will be pictures coming soon:
Ametrine was a mineral that was dear to me for a long time. I worked
with a piece even in my practice and I have a beautiful heart-shape
During this time I was dealing with a severe gastritis and colon
spasm, due to a situation on my job, dealing with a very verbal
abusive, aggressive female colleague. My intuition told me maybe there
was an essence calling to be prepared to help me in this process. And
as Dr. Bach was looking in Nature to find the help he needed I also
did and found my Ametrine as a rough piece. On a sunny Monday morning
(28-06-04) I was called to prepare the essence.
I did prepare myself, the garden and the rocks, doing a cleaning
ceremony with sage, aura-spray and asked the Great Spirit of Essences,
the four Winds, Mother Earth and Grandfather Sky to help me prepare
Some minutes after the crystal bowl with the minerals and spring water
was placed in the sun I saw a Toad walking slowly trough the garden.
It was special seeing this toad as usual they hide during daylight and
want to live hidden.
I looked up the meaning of meeting a Toad and found in Working with
* connection to the altered states of consciousness
* symbol of the Earth
* camouflaging poison
* changing luck
* long life.
Well, these positive energies were most welcome.
The essence was in the garden for some hours and just before it
started to rain I decided to bring the essence inside. I only added a
little bit of alcohol in it because I sensed there would come another
part to be done the next day. And there was. Bringing back the essence
in the bowl into the garden several Yarrow flowers were asking to be
part of the new essence. So I added yarrow flowers to the bowl with
the rocks. One yarrow even was bend down itself to the bowl so this
flower was able to be part of the process without being picked. This
means the qualities of the flower were expanded with the connection
with the roots of the flower and Mother Earth.
A beautiful caterpillar was crawling near, chased by our cat Smiley. I
managed to bring the caterpillar on a safe place. She was injured a
little from Smiley's claws but I asked the Yarrow to help this heal.
* the power of whirlwind
After some hours the essence was ready. I did the usual ceremonies,
thanking all elements for their assistance and made stock bottles.
Meditating with the essences brought the following key-words:
The essence provides a time of needed rest, the space for yourself to
get rest and calmness. This needed condition helps to bring insight in
the problem one is working with. The Yarrow helps building a shield of
protection to make the necessary steps that are needed to heal.
People reported from one week research: rest, an unexpected solution
of a problem, protection, more space in the chest region and the solar
plexus being cleaned and reloaded, power and strength to step right
into a situation to solve a problem. For people around me the essence
brought immediate relief and calmness. For myself it seemed to take a
longer time but now I know that time was needed . It brought much more
insight in the problem/medical condition I was working on. Even
sometimes the situation I was in felt to even grow more difficult then
it was before but this only was a condition to prepare a better
opportunity for me to gain strength.
And after talks with the management of my work I even felt worse
because the offered options to clear the situation with my colleague
made me upset so very much.. The option was to do an official
complaint about her. I felt this was very unfair to her, because after
all those months that my boss knew about the problem and did not do
anything to solve the problem she would be confronted with an official
complaint. The management, knowing about the behavior of the
colleague, even decided not to talk to her to prevent escalation of
the problems. I asked them why in heaven's name they expected from me
to be able to talk to her when even they did not do. This made me feel
angry, disappointed and very unsatisfied towards the management. This
anger and negative feeling suddenly changed in a very firm decision:
Doing a complaint, behind her back was not fair, and was not my way to
solve the problem. So I spoke out loud to myself: If you do not talk
to her I will do it myself.
Then I went for a long walk, to clean my negative energies, ask for
some help from "above" and coming home me decision even was stronger.
I phoned my boss, told him what I liked to do: talking to her myself.
He really was frightened everything would go a wrong way. I was not. I
asked her to come to my house to talk to with me. She said yes.
We had a two hour talk. I started telling her I would be completely
honest about everything. I was, telling her everything that had hurt
me so many times and such a long time. When she asked me why did not
you tell me before I answered: I was not able to, I was not strong
enough, you were verbal to strong, abusive and dominant. Also I told
her that I did not take the option of the management to make an
official complaint because I think this was not fair to her. I asked
to respect my honesty. She said she did and was very glad I chose the
way talking to her straightly. After some time we decided to make some
agreements for the future. She even was willing to have a third person
helping us when needed. It was a very good talk and I was so glad I
followed my intuition and my heart. The essence helped me to choose
the most difficult way, to confront my problem myself. But it feels
the most fair towards myself and others and it brought very much peace
in my Soul. So Ametrine/Yarrow also makes you strong to confront
problems in the most honest way, without hiding behind others or
searching for very complicated ways that seem to be safe in the first
The Amethyst part of the rock is helping to get insight. The Citrine
part of Ametrine helps the Solar Plexus, feeling calm and quiet. And
developing power that is needed for action. Your heart is in the
middle between those two. The Yarrow helps you feel protected and
handle from out your Heart and Soul and by being protected you get in
inner source of strength.
This essence will help to have the courage to pick up the problem and
walk right into the heart of the matter you are dealing with. It helps
you to make you straight and honest towards yourself and others. And
doing this you will be protected by a very Cosmic Source and your
On the spot were the essence bowl was placed now a bunch of Self Heal
flowers is blossoming. Like also this flower shows: the essence helps

My own experience with this essence has been one of profound healing
and support after a serious health crises as well as well as opening
of my mind to new possibilities, new ways of thinking, allowing higher
concepts to filter through much more easily. I feel much more at peace
within my own life, trusting where my guidance is leading me and
knowing that the Universe is always seeking to give me and everyone
else, all the good that we can envision and even more. It has pulled
me back onto my sacred path, the one I know is really right for me!
And through it all, there has been more blessings and good fortune
than I can count, truly this is a most remarkable essence from a
highly gifted teacher and healer and we are so honored to be able to
offer it through our site!
