- As our world, our jobs and our interrelationships have gotten more complex, there is a pressing need to bring the support of deep balance into all the areas of our lives and work — health, job, projects and goals, and our environment. Essence of Perelandra solution has been created specifically by Machaelle and nature as a tool for making the deep balance of the Perelandra garden available to anyone who desires a greater support from nature for themselves, their family, their home and their projects. The EoP helps in several ways. It fosters better mental focus and understanding of how elements of a project work together. It forms an environment that allows these elements to flow and coordinate with each other more easily. It facilitates right order and timing as the elements mesh and work towards the goal. It can bring greater intuitive insights and a sense of "getting unstuck" when we are faced with thorny or difficult problems. It does all these things by providing a balanced foundation where things just plain work better, because the full support of nature is there.
People who have visited the Perelandra garden over the years have often commented on how they feel more clear and energized in its supportive field. Now, Machaelle and nature have found a way to bottle this up and make it more widely available. Essence of Perelandra won’t create a miniature Perelandra for you but will give you an important tool for helping make you and whatever you are doing more efficient and better give you the results you're seeking.
How would I describe Essence of Perelandra? Balance in a bottle. But not that "magic-bullet, you-don't-have-to-do-any-work-because-Machaelle-and-nature-have-been-doing-it-for-you-in-the-Perelandra-garden-for-over-30-years" kind of way. You can be handed everything in the world to function well, but you still have to choose to make use of it.
Think of a task that you do on a regular basis — a process with nature like balancing your checkbook, your commute to work, preparing dinner, cleaning the house, organizing volunteers, writing an email, an Energy Cleansing of your home … anything. You know how that task normally feels. You know what parts you have difficulty with or find challenging. You know the quality of the task and the quality of your participation.
Now imagine support. Support from the balance of the Perelandra garden given to you, your home, your family, your work, your life. Imagine the kind of quality that comes from a foundation like that. And imagine what kind of impact that can have on the world around you. That’s what Essence of Perelandra gives.
Essence of Perelandra offers "a walk in the garden," so to speak and specifically, the Perelandra Garden. As Machaelle originally explained it, it would give you what spending an afternoon in the Perelandra Garden would give you.
For me, it seems to be a shift that affects my mind and emotions in a positive way that flower essences and ETS do not. When testing it for preparing for a busy work day at Perelandra, I find that the work day seems to flow without my getting overly upset or stressed about any one thing that may happen throughout the day. I seem to move through it without the emotional stress that is typical for me, and just keep going on to the next thing that needs to be addressed. The effect after taking EoP does not suddenly change me in any way. It seems to have an invisible, gradual effect that goes unnoticed until one looks back and reflects on the day. For instance, one day I had prepared the evening before and that morning for a busy day with a demanding schedule. Late in the day I was told that all the work I had done on a specific project the night before and up to that point of the day was put on hold, that the project would be delayed, at best, indefinitely. Usually this would drive me crazy, but I was able to just laugh it off and move on without dwelling on it. Remarkable.
So much of my time and energy goes into worrying and trying to control everything I am responsible for during any given day and getting frustrated with what doesn't go according to my plan. Perhaps the EoP brings in a more co-creative nature-like approach that helps alleviate all the personal junk and worry that gets in the way of letting things flow.
I find that the effect is always gradual for me and just seems to happen without noticing that anything has changed until I go back and reflect to write down the results.
I've been using Essence of Perelandra for 20 days. Some of the effects were obvious and immediate. And then there was the gradual quiet shift (if you can call three weeks gradual) that when I sit down and think about it, is actually quite profound.
The first time I used it, I was about to go into a meeting on a subject three of us had been avoiding for months, and it was a foggy-brain afternoon. I took Essence of Perelandra orally and then shifted it [see directions for steps] specifically for the meeting. There was an immediate change in my ability to focus and the meeting was surprisingly productive — we finally moved forward.
I took Essence of Perelandra orally each day. I also used it for work projects, for volunteer activities, for general balance, for specific goals, for health issues. The resulting effects were sometimes unusual. What would at first appear to be a lack of success in achieving expectations, suddenly turned into an unexpected opportunity and very positive experience in an area of a project that I had not given my attention to.
In the past week, I have found myself feeling a calm and a quiet that is so unfamiliar. I have had many moments of fearing I was not getting done what needed to be done, that I needed to be DOING SOMETHING more. Because I shouldn't feel like this, I must be avoiding or ignoring something. Where is the battle, the noise in my brain from all that needs to be done? Where was the overwhelm? I was unusually focused on each task at hand, not doing my usual bouncing from project to project and interruption to interruption. And I was feeling guilty about it!!! As if I was going to be caught not doing enough. Amazingly large or daunting tasks were being completed — one by one. And small tasks I would have put off to a pile were being completed with ease.
I can't fully explain it. I feel like I'm in the midst of changing a way of being that has been with me my entire life. And though I have been very aware of it for years, aware of the obstacles it creates for me, I never found a way out. I only found ways around — and worked really hard to get around my own blocks. Now, something is melting away, without any effort on my part.
Out of the blue, this thought popped into my mind yesterday: "It doesn't change who I am, it takes away the struggle to be who I am."
And perhaps that's what it's doing with the projects, taking away the struggle in the movement. It doesn't change the project itself. It allows it to be what it can be.
