Refresh with room sprays containing flower essences

Written by Linda James.

Refresh with room sprays containing flower essences


Room sprays freshen up the workplace, leaving a clean and energised feeling. There is a variety of sprays available, or you can make your own with flower essences, as well as essential oils. You can choose one or a variety of the flower essences; add 2–3 drops of the essence to a spray bottle of spring or filtered water to make a refreshing spray. Flower essences are made from the blossoms, sun-infused in a bowl of spring water, capturing the energy of the plant. This becomes the mother tincture (or concentrate), which can then be diluted and preserved with brandy in a small bottle. Only 2–3 drops of the diluted essence may be required. Use your intuition for the exact number of drops needed for your particular requirements. Flower essences are used for healing our physical and subtle energy bodies, so include them when using the spray. Some of the well-known flower essences are Bach Flowers, Australian Bush Flowers and Pure Therapies Vibrational Remedies.


An alternative to a flower essences or essential oil room spray is the gem essences. Again, use a fine mist spray bottle containing spring or filtered water; this time adding one or more gems to the water whose essence and energy you desire. Leave the gems in the water until the bottle is empty. Powerful gems (stones) for cleansing heavy negative energy are black obsidian, black tourmaline and pyrite. Make a spray with the individual stones or, for a more powerful cleanse, use all three. This spray will work in the same manner as smudging.

Book Reviews

5 stars



By susan dalby on December 22, 2014 Format: Kindle Edition

This is a fantastic book that introduces the idea of balancing energy in the workplace by facing the dynamics of a group situation. For me the "unsaids" and the energy or atmosphere that is a result of bystander apathy (another word for denial) in the workplace has always been the elephant in the room. No different to the family group only more complex.
In organizational coaching most approaches are cognitively based and poorly confront the larger part of the iceberg floating below the conscious mind of the group namely how our attitudes and moods impact upon the environment.. Linda takes us to places that need to be explored for business to grow and to create harmonious and interactive workplaces that bravely address evolving differences carried in the void. I am using this book in my workplace and the reflective approach in collaboration with introducing awareness of the body is very fruitful. The staff are having to confront aspects of themselves in a more honest and collaborative way. Since starting to use this book the level of positivity in the workplace which is incidentally a Dental Surgery has changed so much that patients are being affected by the new feel of the place. Wonderful book for those brave enough to embrace change and see it as it evolves which it does very rapidly.

Highly recommend!,


By Lifelong Reader Jody Haywood, November 26, 2014


What I loved most about this book is how practical it is. So many books have interesting philosophies and ideas but they don't easily translate into practical exercises you apply immediately to your life. Highly recommend this book for anyone who is interested in improving the quality of their work day experience.

Bring unconditional love into the mainstream


By Julia Adams True Nature Traditional Hawaiian Lomi Lomi and Wellness Therapies 5 October 2014

A powerful and helpful read. I've worked alongside Linda as a teacher at the Awareness Institute, seen her in action as a facilitator and had profound healings from her to support my inner work and life quest. Support those working to bring unconditional love into the mainstream world in unconventional and unconditional ways - her book is also on Amazon. Many of you will understand how important it is to reshape our workplaces for the 21st century. x

I loved it!

By Anne Freccero, Novelist, 15 September 2014.

Just finished to read your book Linda. I loved it! I was captivated in reading the chapters... to knowledge how much I and my surrounding friends and family build stress in the work place and life. And what to do to change this habit. I loved particularly chapter 2. I found easy to understand through the tables and drawings the functions of the chakras... I found very interesting the little window in the table where you mention for each chakra... 'You lose energy when you...' ... After reading it, I could apply it to few moments in my life where I lost control of my energy in some situations... and now understand in which chakra the energy was blocked. Colours of the Day, The Energy of Passion and Purpose, were very helpful to put in order the purposes muddled up in my head. In 3 words again. I love your book !... Now, I wait with anticipation for the next one...  I have few friends having a lot of stress at work at the moment and I think your book is the perfect Christmas gift.

Congratulations Linda on an absolutely fantastic book!


By Karin Lonnon, 15 September 2014

Not only does it help us in our everyday life but especially for all us workers, who so often get overwhelmed with our daily, busy work life that there is no time to check in with our own health & well being.  You give us wonderful short exercises to pick ourselves up as well as great tips on how to make our lives smoother and more pleasant.

I can recommend it to all my friends. Keep it coming!

A great read for those who are looking for more energy in their day.


Reviewed by Samson September 2014

Format Paperback

 A great read for those who are looking for more energy in their business and in their working day. What I really like about this book is that it shows us that we can ‘see change at work’.
Chapter 3 ‘The Energy of the Business’ gave me new ways of looking at my business by connecting it to the chakra system. A refreshing and interesting concept.

 There's something for everyone in this book


 By Ann E. Moore on September 16, 2014 Format: Paperback


 No longer part of the corporate world and wish this book had been available many years ago! Am now a mature age undergraduate student and Linda's techniques to help deal with the various daily stresses of the working environment translate perfectly into my new life at university with its own stresses of assignment deadlines, constant intellectual challenges, a considerable generation gap and a long commute. There is something for everyone in this book which is easy to read, understand ... and then implement the changes!

Easy to read and interesting ideas and concepts



By Stevebbb on September 24, 2014  Format: Kindle Edition


 This book gives the reader the ‘how’ as well as the ‘what’. Easy to read and interesting ideas and concepts. Written for the working day, however this book is also valuable for increasing energy in all areas of our lives. After reading the book I am much more conscious of my working environment and workplace relationships and how I can make simple changes or adjustments that really make a difference to the energy in my day.

A Gem of a Book

By Anne Brand September 29, 2014

A gem of a book that is jam-packed with specific, practical, easy to follow tools and exercises from start to finish! Your working life will never be the same again if you follow the advice in this book. It touches all your senses with the use of oils, essences, colour, crystals, and sound – a veritable mini energy course for everyday life. The complexity of energy systems is simply and clearly explained; so that you understand why, what and how you come to feel drained and lacking in energy at work. This provides you with the incentive to apply the tools provided to make you feel energised and ready to take on any new challenges in the workplace.

Some great insights on how your perceptions of people impact your energy levels. I especially loved the useful information on how to clear the negative energy that builds up in your surroundings and how to protect yourself from the energy vampires you find in every workplace – something that can be used outside of the workplace as well. It is obviously written by someone who has experienced first hand those same issues in the workplace.

A definite gift for friends and family that are stuck in soul destroying, energy sapping jobs. It is clear, simple, and one hundred percent practical. Do yourself a favour and read it!






Who Am I?

Written by Linda James.


I sit beside you, I do not hide my face

But you do not see me.

I have been sitting here for years.

I have laughed at your jokes

And shared your tears

But you still do not see me.


The years have come and gone.

Many changes, many new faces,

But you still do not see me.

Paint changes from blue to pink to green

Desks move, equipment updates,

But you still do not see me.


I sang Happy Birthday at a hundred morning teas.

Remember the fortieth anniversary party?

I wore a red dress with a big bow,

But you did not see me.

I have a title and a number

And collect a regular pay cheque.

But you do not see me.


I am not angry and blame you

For not seeing me,

For all of these years I’ve worn a mask.

I did not let you see the real me.

Mysterious Image on the Pillow

Written by Linda James with Karen Van Ryneveld.

The Face in the Pillow

Experienced and written by Linda James www.lindajames.com and Karen Van Ryneveld www.tigersiconsulting.com

On 28th November 2012 Karen Van Ryneveld, fellow counsellor and coach, called to see me for an Energy Balance.

Before the Energy Balance we discussed, amongst other things, that Karen had been researching the Mayan Calendar and the possible significance of the 2012 dates.

Karen had an Energy Balance (lasting about 40 minutes) laid on the therapy table with one pillow under her head and one under her feet. Immediately after Karen left the healing room I changed the pillow cases as normal. I picked up the pillow that had been under Karen’s feet and as I turned it over I immediately saw the image of a face on the blue satin pillow slip. Shocked at what I saw I called Karen back into the room. We took photos on our mobile phones. Karen did some searching and found an image of a Mayan/Aztec warrior which may resemble the image on the pillow slip but what this represents remains a mystery.

The blue satin pillow had been in my possession for a couple of years and was washed each time it was used. The pillow had been put on the therapy table by me immediately before Karen arrived and there was not a mark on it. There was no way anyone else could have touch the pillow case as it had not left my possession.

Six months later the image on the pillow is exactly the same and has not faded. Recently Karen sent me a copy of the image as shown above. A friend of Karen’s had changed the contrast and solarized the photo and also did a bump grating for further enhancement.

Karen wondered if this could resemble the features of an Aztec or Mayan warrior or perhaps something else.

It is hard to think that it was a random occurrence. If any of you have had similar experiences we'd love to hear about them and would like to invite you to share them with us on the Seachange Within Facebook Page.


Sometimes the answers are in the past

Written by Linda James.

Past Life Regressions

Clare came to see me because she was considering dropping out of a Naturopathy course that she had enrolled in six months before. Clare love growing and working with herbs and had finally made the decision to follow her passion. She had reduced her working hours to three days a week and was easily fitting in work and study. However, of recent times she had started to feel uneasy when at college and had a growing sense of loss and abandonment.

We discussed the possible causes of these feelings. Clare had a loving and stable family life as a child and was currently in a very happy relationship. Perhaps we needed to look further back, as Clare felt that the feelings may not have originated in this life time. During a past life regression Clare saw herself as a woman in her fifties, wearing a long white dress and sandals. She lived in a small village, which she felt was in France, in about 1700. People in the village and surrounding areas came to her for help and healing. She would listen to their problems and provide wise counselling. She made up potions, to heal the sick, from plants and herbs she grew in the small garden at the rear of her cottage. She lived a happy and peaceful life, earning a living from her healing work, for over 30 years.

Then the scene changed and Clare saw the same people she had helped, shouting at her to 'Go, get out'. They were pushing her along the road; dozens of people pushing and shouting at her. She tried to calm them, and reason with them, but they started to throw things at her. 'Go away, go away' they continued to shout at her. As she walked along the road, leaving behind her home and the people she had known all her life, she felt alone and abandoned. Why did they believe the religious representatives that came from the next town, instead of her? She was just trying to help people, she wasn't a witch.

When Clare brought more focus to growing and working with herbs in this lifetime, she had started to connect to unresolved emotions from that past life. Clare said that it all made sense to her. With awareness Clare was able to recognise the feelings as they arose and allow the healing to take place. Clare was happy again as she attended her Naturopathy course and on her way to achieving her dreams.
