The All Hallow's Eve

The wind outside nested in each tree, prowled the sidewalks in invisible treads like unseen cats. Tom Skelton shivered. Anyone could see that the wind was a special wind this night, and the darkness took on a special feel because it was All Hallows' Eve. Everything seemed cut from soft black velvet or gold or orange velvet. Smoke panted up out of a thousand chimneys like the plumes of funeral parades. From kitchen windows drifted two pumpkin smells: gourds being cut, pies being baked. - Ray Bradbury in The Halloween Tree 

Wishing everyone a very spooky Halloween ~ Dominique

You might have heard the word, but what exactly are pheromones? 

The word pheromone derives from the ancient Greek words phero (to bear, carry) and ormé (impetus). This term was coined by two German scientists in the 1950s. It describes the chemical signals that trigger responses in members of the same species. There are few types of pheromones that serve a different purpose. There are alarm pheromones, food trail pheromones, sex pheromones, territory markers, and many others that affect behavior or physiology of a particular species. Since pheromones are widely used by animals for communication and to attract mates, scientists also believe that pheromones may play similar role in humans.

Humans posses a tiny organ situated in the nasal cavity that serves as the body's receptor for pheromones. This organ is called the vomeronasal (VNO) or Jaconson's organ. It sends the signals that it receives from the pheromones to the human brain. The brain dictates the response of the body, which becomes evident in the human behavior.

Many studies were conducted to find out how pheromones work in humans. Interestingly, Swedish experts have used the latest brain imaging technology and discovered that both, homosexual males and heterosexual females, reacted in the same way when they were exposed to male pheromones. This and many other studies are widely documented in medicinal journals. It is no wonder then that the industry took notice of this research. 

Pheromones belong to the sphere of the non-verbal communication. They work in a "mysterious" way to attract one human being to another and are what we call the "chemistry" of love. 

Many people are successfully using pheromone products to enhance their own likability in social settings or to attract sexual partners. Pheromone products help enhance our own chemical "signature" making us more attractive to others independently from our physique. People who normally have difficulty finding a partner report incredible success with the use of supplemental pheromones. 

There are pheromones for men and for women, both heterosexual and gay. They come in unscented versions or as perfumes and colognes, and are to be used externally for that extra something that makes one more attractive in social settings or, if desired,  absolutely irresistible to others.

Give it a try and see what happens.

Healing Properties of Citirine

Citrine cluster

Citrine is a silicon dioxide (quartz) mineral whose color ranges from light yellow, orange-yellow, amber to rusty brown. The name derives from the Latin word "citrinus" which means citron colored.

The distinctive yellow color comes from the inclusions of iron, but yellow citrine rarely occurs in nature. Most commercially sold citrine is a actually heat-treated amethyst or smoky quartz. Sometimes citrine is found together with amethyst. The cluster is then referred as ametrine. Citrine is mined in Brazil, Russia, Myanmar, France, Spain, Great Britain, Madagascar and the USA.

Citrine forms hexagonal crystals that often occur as clusters of small pyramids on a geode base or as short, stubby terminated crystal that exist alone or in drusy aggregates.

Citrine is a purifying and energizing stone that carries the joyful healing energy of the sun. It is believed that citrine has the power to expand and purify the aura and to align the chakras. It is often used to purify and activate the solar plexus chakra, but it also has the ability to clear and amplify the crown chakra and open pathways to increased creativity and intuition.

This wonderful purifying stone has the ability to amplify positive energy and clear negativity without absorbing it. It removes negative vibrations, transforms and dissipates them. This is why, unlike most crystals, it does not need any cleansing.

Citrine is believed to be a stone of wealth and is often called the "merchant's stone." It symbolizes honest profit, wealth and success. It brings luck in business and increases generosity. To improve the money flow in business a citrine gem should be kept in the cash register.

Citrine is a perfect stone for those who want to improve themselves. This stone of positive energy can help to dissipate self-doubt and destructive tendencies. It helps to develop courage, confidence, self-respect and a positive outlook on life. With the help of citrine criticism becomes less hurtful and is rather understood as a motivation to change than a destructive force. Irrational fears and phobias disappear as citrine brings calm and opens the gates to deep, inner wisdom. Those who lost purpose in life may find new direction. 

On physical plane citrin helps recharge depleted energy and heal chronic diseases. It helps activate digestion and detoxification. It helps improve the function of the thyroid gland and pancreas. It helps increase energy and strengthen the immune system. 

Citrine is a very beautiful gem. It brings light an joy to anyone who contemplates it. Placed at home it enhances positive energy of any room, harmonizes and helps dissipate negativity.

Prosperous And Abundant

When people evaluate their life, they compare themselves to a standard of what a successful life is, and it turns out that standard tends to be universal: People in Togo and Denmark have the same idea of what a good life is, and a lot of that has to do with money and material prosperity. - Daniel Kahneman

October is the fallen leaf, 
but it is also a wider horizon more clearly seen. 
It is the distant hills once more in sight, 
and the enduring constellations above them once again.
