I’m not a fan of trends. Usually if everyone is into something, I run fast in the other direction. Owning a crystal shop, lately we have been being asked for Moldavite at least 6 times a day- thanks to TicTok. And while it is kind of refreshing that people are actually craving deep transformation & change, it is a little worrisome that Moldavite is the stone they are looking to work with, before ever picking up a piece of Rose Quartz or Amethyst. I’ll admit, I had some judgements about that.

In working with Moldavite recently, it certainly made its presence heard loud and clear. It is time for people on this planet to start working with the energy it brings.


Unlike other crystals that grow within the earth, there is a finite amount of Moldavite on the planet (it arrived via meteor crash in the Czech Republic some 14 million years ago, and currently there is no mining happening, which is why it is so expensive and hard to find)

BiolumenEssence Moldavite Gem EssenceThis is what inspired the idea to create a Moldavite Gem Essence…essences are a powerful and sustainable alternative if you can’t get your hands on a piece of this somewhat translucent green meteorite. Essences are a great way to ease into the energy & control your dosage. You can apply a drop topically (on your third eye), or put it directly under your tongue or in a glass of water, drop some in your bath or diffuser to immerse & surround yourself in its ancient vibration that feels like it’s from the future. You can increase the dosage as you desire, but I’ll tell you, I put one drop under my tongue and it was as if all my cells were dancing, instantly.

People are starving for the starlight element. Many people are at home watching TV at night, and not staring into the night sky, contemplating the cosmos and our place in it. We’ve lost our connection to the interconnectedness of all life – on earth & beyond.

When you first start working with Moldavite, it can be a bit ungrounding & you may become a bit light headed. However, once you acclimate to its increased vibration, is quite fun-it is very activating, expansive, elevating & illuminating. It aligns you with your destiny & what brings you joy.

My sense is that it is calling to everyone so powerfully lately, to shake off the stagnation, move through what is blocking you from stepping powerfully into your own light & purpose. Sometimes this isn’t easy, and it can get ugly and challenging…which is why we tend to be cautious with the teens coming into the shop looking for it, we want to be sure people have the tools to process all the “stuff” that may arise. (Other flower essences, gems, energy work & meditation are supportive of this process)

The Power of Your Voice


Every time I sit down to write, I wonder what I am going to say... just before it comes spilling out of me. “I have nothing to say”, “no one wants to hear what I have to say” & “no one is listening/reading anyway” were some of the familiar stories I heard myself telling myself this week, and while that may or may not be true, silencing our expression only serves to stifle our ability to create the life we desire. I am sure these stories are not unique to me. 
A huge part of our focus at BiolumenEssence & Hidden Gem on Main is on wellness – the integration & balance of Mind, Body & Spirit.  As the world continues to be swirly and destabilizing for many, we are seeing the rise of anxiety, sleeplessness, loneliness & grief. 

Our voice is powerful, and we haven’t seen a time in recent history that is so blatantly trying to stifle our voice, suppress our speech, burn our books, and instill fear in us for speaking our truth as we are seeing & experiencing today.  The throat chakra governs the nervous system, so it is no wonder we are seeing these issues on the rise. Deep breaths of fresh air are essential for maintaining a healthy throat chakra & nervous system. When was the last time you really allowed yourself to breathe deeply & freely?
Our words have power. They create and weave webs of connection. Words create intimacy through vulnerability, foster trust & help build relationships. Words can be weapons as well, so choose them wisely. 


Our voice (aka our throat chakra) is the gateway – the portal – through which a lot of trapped energy, intention & emotion can be released into the world. Our words are the birthplace of conscious manifestation & creation.  Holding back what we want to say but are too afraid to speak for fear of being judged, rejected, or offending someone, only serves to trap energy that wants to move. Many dis-eases are created from trapped emotions. (Emotion = energy in motion). 
My hope is that this encourages you to speak what is on your mind & heart…free up some of that trapped energy & stop trying to squash what is naturally arising. If you need some support in this area, there are lots of things that can help open & balance your throat chakra. 

  • Working with flower essences is a great way to help move stuck & stagnant energies  
  • Visit the blending bar and create a custom aromatherapy blend to address the specifics of your situation & help support you on your healing journey
  • Check out Authenticity in the chakra line of essences & aromatic synergies 
  • Schedule an energy healing session to balance & clear your chakras. It’ll help to release what needs to be cleared & make space for what you are calling in & creating in your life.
  • Experiment working with crystals & gems that support communication: Amazonite, Aquamarine, Blue Calcite, Celestite, Kyanite & Lapis lazuli. 
  • Building community & connecting with others...check out all of our upcoming events at Hidden Gem on Main & Divinely Rooted 

 In support of radical self-expression & authenticity,


Reflections on 2020


It has been hard to find words to encapsulate the essence & energy of life on earth this past year...

2020 has certainly been challenging for many of us. At the same time it was undoubtedly a year of growth and expansion, as it shook many of us to our core, and had us asking lots of questions.

Whether your growth has shown up as a result of taking on homeschooling, adjusting to working from home, managing a lack of social connecting, caring for sick loved ones, amplifying your wellness practice to keep your immune system in peak condition, shifting or getting more vocal about your political perspective (and losing some friends over it), surrendering to state lock downs & having to close your business, or being silenced/censored & shut down by social media  (it happened to me, thanks Facebook!)…2020 has brought us a world that only “conspiracy theorists” dreamed could happen in the US, and, well…here we are. It has been fascinating to witness it all unfold.

We are all doing the best we can to navigate what is before us.  I’m seeing more and more people turn to energetic medicine to support them in these crazy times, and the benefits and results have been profound. Getting back to our roots, getting connected with nature and her medicine, reminds us of who we are, and puts us in resonance with the natural world around us. It is easy to get caught up in the external happenings of life these days. It is easy to take things personally, to get offended, or to let our fear run the show. But ultimately, that is NOT the highest expression of Who We Are. 

As lightworkers, we are here to foster the evolution of consciousness through compassion & presence, and to shine our light in the dark cavernous places of our society to illuminate what is toxic and out of balance.  Not running from or hating on others who think differently, but embracing the reflection we see in those that trigger us. Not denying the existence of things that make us uncomfortable, but taking a hard look at them & noticing what arises if we allow ourselves to feel into the possibility of that which we don’t want to be true, very well might be, and allowing yourself to feel the pain & confusion when this reality sinks into your heart~space.

Flower essences are amazing tools to work with, when trying to address the unseen, dark, nebulous & hard to reach places within ourselves. They are Nature’s Liquid Lightworkers helping us to navigate our ascension process. They are masters at helping us to shift the energetic, spiritual and emotional “stuff” we carry that we may not have words for. The work starts within us, and trickles out into the world. Flower Essences are the perfect ally for this journey, offering their support, wisdom and subtle magic to sometimes tough situations.

One of my favorite essences to be using these days, is LightStar.  LightStar assists in activating your core of light, and spins out any discordant energies that aren’t in your highest alignment. In a way, it’s like an energetic colonic for your energy body. It creates space within you to let your own light shine.

So, instead of repeatedly declaring that 2020 was a “shit~show” let us instead be grateful for all the awareness and growth it has brought us, even if it was painful, uncomfortable and maddening. I don’t know who said it (and if you know, please tell me!), but this has stuck with me since I heard it about 20 years ago: “Obstacles are the polishing stones on the facets of our brilliance”.

I think we are going to come out quite shiny on the other side of 2020.

Wishing you joy, health & happiness this holiday season,


Insight into the Personality of Flower Essences








Insight into the Personality of Flower Essences

Recently I was having a conversation with a friend of mine, who is well versed in the energetics, therapeutics and chemistry of essential oils. We were talking about flower essences, and she was feeling a bit frustrated because there seems to be no hard & fast rule that this flower is for that purpose, like you would find if you studied aromatherapy or herbalism –different sources seem to have different information on the same plant when it comes to the energetics & esoteric uses of flower essences.


As humans, we are all same Genus & Species – Homo sapiens. Just because we share the same genus & species, does not mean that we share all of the same characteristics, qualities, talents, personality quirks, gifts, fears, aspirations, inspiration, belief system, lifestyle, taste, style, creative process, emotional intelligence, spiritual connection, etc.


 With flowers & flower essences, I believe there is so much that goes into developing a single flower (or group of flowers, in the case of a flower essence) that determine the specific personality of that essence.


The land where it was grown, the soil, the climate, the energy of the people that live nearby, the person’s intention who was creating the essence, the astrology of the day, what was happening in the world at the time of its flowering, what did the bee whisper to the flower as it nuzzled & rolled around inside and gathered pollen, what was the story that blew in on the breeze, or the information contained in the raindrops that landed on the petals the day before harvest? Was it sung to by crickets at night, or peepers? Did it grow through cracks in the sidewalk in the city? Did it grow under overhead powerlines, near an airport? Where and under what conditions was the water sourced that is being used?


There are hundreds of opportunities for the world around us to shape and change us. We are changed by stories & music that we hear, by encounters that we have, by dancing in the rain, staring at the stars or spending a morning sun-gazing. I believe that flowers are no different. They each have their own individual story to tell, and the nuances of their energy as it meets your energy, co creates something that has not existed before…its geometric perfection meets yours, cellular energy is transformed, spiritual understanding is birthed, trauma shifts, awareness awakens, pain arises, letting go happens, unbounded joy courses through your veins, alignment with your soul purpose starts to happen, a deeper level of perfection and connection start to take place.


We are frequency made visible. When we ingest the perfection of nature, we allow ourselves to get into resonance with the natural world, and all that is not us, falls away. Flower essences simply remind us of who we are, beings that are an integral part of Nature.

Gratitude for the gifts of 2019


2019 has brought with it incredible connections, collaborations, creativity & growth for many of us. And along with that still comes a lot of "stuff" that is a lot less fun to talk about, not to mention feel & integrate. But this is where our work is. Transformation, expansion, inner peace and self love sometimes don't come so easily. They require us to look at the shadows lingering within us, the beliefs that have a hold on us, even though intellectually we know better. And most importantly, *feel* all the feels that show up, no matter how desperately we want to bury our head in the sand or run away. 

This is the place where flower essences shine & offer unrivaled support. They illuminate all those dark sticky places within, and the energy starts moving again. Sometimes this looks like creating new habits, or asking tougher questions of ourselves, adopting a new perspective or having a new insight pop in at the perfect moment...or sitting in meditation/creating the space to allow whatever wants to show up, to show up. They help us to peel away the layers, so that we can begin to feel our luminous nature awakening.

I invite you to explore how flower essences can support you in 2020 & beyond!

Awaken your Luminous Nature

awaken your luminous nature


Flowers Essences Illuminate our Light Body



It is my sense that flowers carry codes of light. Flower essences capture this light, and make it assimilable in the body. They help to energize & illuminate our light-body by shining a light on what is dark & stuck within us, helping us to shift and transmute those energies/beliefs/patterns.

We are multidimensional, cosmically connected beings. Flower essences support our ability to SHINE in the world and to feel lighter & brighter while they assist us on our path of ascension,  helping us to integrate cosmic & earthly energies.

The word LUMEN is defined as a unit of luminosity...related to the Latin "lucere" meaning "to shine"...I don't think it is a coincidence that in botany, a "lumen" is a cavity within a plant cell, surrounded by a cell wall. I'm guessing that in a bunch of years, when science catches up with energy, intuition and WOO, that they'll discover that plants hold light in these cavities.

Maybe this research has been done, I don't know, I haven't gone looking for specific scientific evidence of it... I often like to sit in wonder and awe, pondering the magic of the universe for a while, before I go searching for some distilled down, reductive analysis that eliminates magic & wonder and only takes into account some indoctrinated mindset that often only believes that something has validity if  one can perceive it using the 5 senses. That being said, science is making headway...tapping into the unseen, magical workings of the universe and proving what indigenous and intuitive folks have known for years.  I am in no way discounting the validity of science...I'm just saying that I don't always go looking for the approval of science in order to back up what I know to be true. 

 What is your experience? Have you noticed an inner luminosity awakening within, when you use flower essences? Are you ever awe-struck just gazing at the geometric perfection of the natural world around you?



Alchemy for Ascension


I created BiolumenEssence after several years of making flower essences. Upon connecting with the essences, and asking each of them what they were for and why someone would choose to use them, I received some surprising answers. Clearly these essences came into being at a time when we are struggling – straddling a world that is simultaneously on the brink of the Golden Age as much as it is teetering on the edge of immense darkness, control, disaster & fear. Flower essences are alchemical in their creation - bringing in different elements & energies ~ earth, air, water & fire (sunshine). They offer us Alchemy for Ascension.


ˈalkəmē/   noun ~  a seemingly magical process of transformation, creation, or combination


əˈsen(t)SH(ə)n/   noun ~ the act of rising to an important position or a higher level.


Alchemy for AscensionWorking with flower essences initiates a type of internal alchemy ~ one of transformation, growth and luminosity, that enhances and illuminates our path & process of ascension. 


There are some of us here on this planet anchoring in higher energies, some of us are clearing out & transmuting obsolete patterns from ourselves & humanity at large, while some of us weave energetic grids for foundations of what is yet to come. I believe that a lot of this work happens subconsciously…it is not always easy to remember Who We Are, and embody that 24-7 in a world that doesn’t exactly embrace this power & magic as desirable qualities...or even possible, for that matter.


Some of us are embodying the Warrior, others, the Goddess. And some of us are struggling with just being in a body, loving ourselves, creating strong boundaries, tapping into our creativity and becoming aware of our patterns and beliefs that have kept us stuck for years. We long to feel luminous, expansive and connected. I have found flower essences to be a supportive ally while navigating my journey ~ helping to create internal movement, peace, joy and connection. 


There is magic all around us, and I believe whole heartedly in a fantastical~magical universe.  We are powerful beings and we can wield that power in subtle ways, to influence the situations around us and within us.  I lovingly refer to the tapping-in-to this energy as doing “WooWoo”...you will hear me say it often.

It is time for us to Remember Who We Are & re-engage with our own innate magic. I invite you to join me…

In joy & wonder,


The Wild Benevolence of Nature

The Wild Benevolence of Nature

 The Wild Benevolence is that Over~Lighting Intelligence that guides all things...that  gives birth on a moment to moment basis, that is synonymous with endless, relentless creation, and never bows down and allows itself  to be squashed, defeated or controlled.... This Force~this Spirit~ is Wise...it is an omniscient teacher, an Elder; eager to share the Wisdom it has gained from being witness to and closely encapsulated & shaped by every event ever to cross the face of this Earth. It is clear that it is time for us to put our ears & hearts close to the Earth and start listening.
