Archangeloi Essence Sandalphon
This essence relates to Equilibrium Bottle 98, lilac/coral, called Archangel Sandalphon. Three bursts of this delicately fragranced spray above our head and shoulders could - with our cooperation - allow the world of form to meld into the background. As our ears meet stillness, our eyes encounter space, it becomes possible for us to deeply recognise that we are more than any of the things that constitute the content of our life: our identification with form dissolves. In time we become an open receptacle for the influx and outpouring of universal energy and the Whole acts through us.
One of the greatest paradoxes of life is that we need to explore our inner Being so that we may find the road out of ourselves. When we look within rather than only without, we discover we have an inner and an outer purpose. As above so below and - daring to make a leap of faith - we may conclude that the universe too has in inner and an outer purpose inseparable from ours: its outer purpose is to create form, its inner purpose to become aware of its essence. The next step, it seems, is to find ways to bring such consciousness into form and thereby to transform the world. Archangeloi Sandalphon supports us to act for the good of all, for that which sustains life: it helps dissolve feelings of separateness and brings a feeling sense of belonging to a greater whole.
It also deepens our understanding of effortless effort: action, though necessary, is only a secondary stage in creating our reality as it is brought into form; the primary factor in creation is consciousness. Sandalphon brings inner relaxation and transmutes negativity into awakened positivity.
