This Alaskan Essence was produced at the time of the full moon so incorporates the effect of it and also provides an insight into the full moon.

In the deep darkness of my inner being I find

Background Information—This essence was made on a cold clear winter night, in a canyon overlooking Kachemak Bay in southcentral Alaska. A bowl of water was positioned on the snow so that it would receive the direct light of the full moon, and also the moonlight reflecting off the water of the bay and from the white, snow-filled canyon.
Healing Qualities—The full moon is a time of cosmic alignment when the light of the sun is reflected off the fully revealed face of the moon onto the Earth. This light shining in the darkness affects us all, and not always in subtle ways.
The light contained within this essence penetrates deep into our shadow selves to illuminate that which lies unresolved beneath the surface of our consciousness. As we open ourselves to this light, we have the opportunity to let go of many of the subconscious patterns that are affecting us and others in ways beyond our current understanding.
It is a common tendency to project these subconscious patterns onto others rather than claiming them as our own. A typical example is when we feel a certain uncomfortable emotion and then blame another person for making us feel that way. We then expect that individual to change their behaviour so we can feel more comfortable. In relationships, this inclination can take on a much higher level of complexity.
Relationships create an ongoing series of opportunities for uncovering old issues and habits of behaviour that need to be brought to the surface, acknowledged, and released. We are often unable to see the impact of these patterns on ourselves, but when they are unconsciously projected into the shared dynamic of a relationship, their impact becomes obvious. How we deal with this impact will determine, to a large degree, the health of the relationship. If a closer and more harmonious partnership is to be achieved, we must be willing to shine the light of truth on these projections so that we can take responsibility for them and deal with the issues they represent in an honest manner.
The Full Moon Reflection essence is very supportive of this process but it will be most effective when both people take it at the same time. When used in this context, it can help increase the degree of honesty and disclosure in the relationship by bringing awareness to unresolved issues which are being mutually suppressed and projected, so they can be resolved with reciprocal acceptance, understanding, and compassion
