Carnelian, black mustard seed and chant may seem an odd mixture but they can all support your fertility journey! This month my fertility inspiration suggestions combine nutritional therapy with energy healing to raise our vibration.
Black mustard seeds – also known as Brassica Nigra
This healing plant and Spagyric remedy is a joy to introduce you to today. I love Spagyric remedies (as you know my TTC/ womb creams and birthing products are all Spagyric) and this powerful plant can be incorporated into your fertility health programme easily.
It is the most pungent of the mustard seeds
Contains the nutrients selenium, iron, phosphorous, magnesium, zinc, phytonutrient& antioxidants
A fabulous plant for our present global situation because it reduces lung congestion, soothes lung membranes and supports most respiratory disorders including bronchitis too.
According to a study done by the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, including mustard oil in your regular diet could prove to be beneficial to your heart health. Being a rich source of MUFA (Monounsaturated fatty acids), and alpha linolenic acid it helps lower bad cholesterol, helps circulation and reduces the risk of developing IHD risk (Ischemic Heart Disease)
Promotes a clearer complexion; eases symptoms of contact dermatitis, psoriasis and skin fungal infections
Reduces pains and spasms (I am thinking all sorts here from tense muscles to IBS to ovulation pain, endometriosis pain, to birthing)
Stimulates the metabolism and helps burn stored fat
Supports hormone function including thyroid function, urinary tract and dysmenorrhea (painful menstruation)
Stimulates hair growth, supports bone loss during menopause, eases hormonal migraines and believed to support sleep patterns too.
Spagyric therapy also considers the energetic vibration of the plant, in this instance
Energetically this black plant lets the light pass through our shadows but in a protective way. Encourages the release of both physical and emotional toxins that congest us.Encourages self love and an openness to new life (doesn’t this dovetail with sat kar tar well. Helps raise our vibration to new beginnings and encourages positive energy shifts. As we are reaching the winter solstice and the Age of Aquarius this seems so relevant right now.
How to use: As a massage oil or use as a salad dressing, include mustard seeds in your diet or grow your own black mustard seeds on your windowsill and eat daily. Use the spagyric remedy or I can add to any of the remedies I may make up for you. Spagyrics can be used internally or in the bath or vaporise into your aura.
I find crystals fascinating. I love their colours, feel and energy and have been using them within my healing and meditation practice for many years now. I actually worked with a skin company a few years ago helping them develop a range of face serums which imprinted crystal remedies into their products and I have to tell you they are amazing and chemical free!
Put simply crystal healing is a modality used to bring the vibration of the body back into harmony. If you have an interest in Quantum physics you may understand this because every being in the planet is part of a universal energy field that consists of electromagnetic or light energy.
The red-orange colour of the carnelian represents the sacral chakra and is a power stone which has evolved with the cycles of the earth. No wonder this stone is associated with Mother Earth herself a.k.a as Gaia, Pacha Mamma and connects with Shakti energy.
Working with carnelian: wear it or place the stone around the naval (sacral chakra). The red-orange stimulates the sexual chakra and assists in blood purification to cleanse the reproductive organs and release energy blocks stored in this area so wonderful for all women.
Revitalising and raises your vibration – representing the golden-orange dawns of new beginnings and the deep richness of the fertile ground.
Stimulates a deep love and appreciation of nature and the gifts of the earth
Symbolises strength and beauty
Stimulates the metabolism
Influences reproductive health, the sacral chakra, promotes sacred sex and planned reproduction.
Soothes lower back problems
Cleanse reproductive organs and assist blood purification
Release energy blocks
Helps you to find your personal path, confidence and power
Grounds your energy and can be used to help manifest your dreams.
Chant – Sut Kar Tar/Satkar tar
When I developed the creation fertility toolkit I knew that mantra, sound and vibration were important but I find it one of the harder aspects to include within my monthly guidance – simply because I lack confidence in my voice! If you already attend a yoga class you may be used to chanting – such as the primal sound of Aum (also written as Om) to align and open the chakras & heart centre.
Put simply, mantra chants similar to singing are powerful tools for raising kundalini, clearing and restructuring the subconscious mind and releasing known and unconscious blockages including trauma (e.g. relationship breakdowns, grief, miscarriage, termination or post assisted conception procedure) plus they really help “lift the spirits and bring us back to equilibrium”. I consider mantra chant as a form of mindful meditation and a fundamental part of yogic philosophy. Traditional Eastern wisdom believes sound and mantra connects with the soul of your future baby – thus “calling your baby”, easing its passage to your womb.
So this month I have drawn card 11. Sat Kar Tar – a wonderful heart opening chant whose meaning is simply “unconditional love”. You say it like this Sut = sat ; Kar = ker ; Tar = tar. If you chant this mantra I am sure you will feel its vibration and energy and notice how it helps release conscious or unconscious blockages and re-aligns you to peace, love and connection.
Please feel free to listen to this heart meditation or hum along to the mantra from the video.
