First of all wishing you all Happy Easter Blessings, and lots of Love and Light (and sunlight)! Last week we covered Yin Energy and all about sleep… today we pivot to Yang, and immerse ourselves in the sun.
In continuation with our Naturopathic Newsletter series for Coronavirus Stress, today’s issue is all about the Benefits of Sunlight, and how our Essences can help you harness the healing energies that come from the SUN!
I know the SUN gets a bad rap…but what happens when you apply sunlight to energies in nature?
You get GROWTH! (See where I’m going with this..?)
As humans, we’ve evolved into largely indoor cats (meow?) especially during winter months AND during this Coronavirus quarantine – but not too long ago in our history we lived much of our lives outside, and were in harmony with the sun and in symbioses with the healing vibrations in nature.
So in celebration of the “Rising Son” this Easter week, we are highlighting the benefits of the “Rising Sun” (or at least early morning sun) and the healing vibrations from nature found in our Essences that can help catalyze and amplify it’s energetic healing power.
Mahalo & Much Love and (of course) LIGHT☀?,

We are accustomed to hearing about the dangers of the sun, how it damages our skin…but did you know the right balance of sunlight can have hugely beneficial effects?
Most of you know about the benefits of Vitamin D, but the sun also has a huge effect on all levels of well-being. Many of you have heard of seasonal depression and light deprivation*. This is because when sunlight enters the eye, there is a neuronal reaction in the hypothalamus, the part of the brain that controls your mood. The nerves then signal to the pituitary and serotonin, a mood enhancing chemical, is released.*
Moreover, it’s believed that sunlight may also help decrease your appetite, as studies show it naturally suppresses your desire to eat..so count potential weight loss as a benefit**.
According to Ayurveda, an ancient yogic system of healing, morning sun is the best for cleansing and recharging your subtle energy bodies, your brain, nerve cells, vital energy centers, and for increasing your Prana.
We recommend you checkout our tip on how to work with our sun essences at the end of the product section (scroll down).

We recommend the following Shanti Kai™ Master Essences for pairing with your sun time for energizing your brain chakras, balancing your lower chakras, increasing feelings of everything being OK, and overall well being.
Golden Aura™ – Our premier “sun” blend for increasing your auric light quotient or “Prana”, it contains many of the individual ingredients (listed below) in a synergy that amplifies the blend.
White Light™ – To enhance the purifying element of the sun. Being in sunlight can clear negative energy and give a sense of rebirth, which is exactly the purpose of our White Light™️ blend.
Tip: Wear white natural fiber clothes, bathe, and follow with White Light™️ for maximum purification
Emerald Light™ – Our Essence for working with Archangel Raphael. Raphael brings healing powers to the planet from sources “behind the Sun”. Sunlight is what allows green grass, plants, and trees in nature to grow and rejuvenate and working with this essence may melp you heal and enhance your sense of vitality, bring new growth, and connect to the healing force of sunlight.
Tip: Use Emerald Light™️ before taking in sun. Visualize green light filling your cells as you heal and rejuvenate.
Evolve™ – For activating the lesser known subtle chakras in your brain, helping you “evolve” by tapping into your unaccessed brain power. Using with sunlight may help your crown’s energy field “capture” light (this is due to the synergy of the ingredient base).
Treetop Paradise™ – For indoor birds longing for sunlight and treetops (especially during indoor months); we’ve found many owners also use it on themselves! What can I say, we all want to fly!
Attract™ – For opening to the sun’s power of Attraction; this essence may help you open to communing with the Universe, harnessing sunlight energy, and transforming it into pure Prana, increasing your field of energy to amplify and strengthen your field of attraction.

2020 Gold™ – This essence is enriched with vibrational infusion of gold, which embodies sunlight energy and may also act as a conduit for the healing energies of the sun. Key orchids in this blend may help with opening the crown & upper upper chakras to this increased stream of light.
Lemon Master – For increasing mental and emotional well-being. When you put lemon juice in your hair and go in the sun it will lighten… and so will your energy when you put Lemon Essence in your aura.
Cycnoches Orchid – This essence clears samskaras along the spine and balances all nadis and meridians; morning sun has important beneficial effect on the brain*, nerves, and spine and thus working with Cycnoches Essence and (limited) sun exposure can be a powerful duo.
Crown of Thorns – Aptly named, for this Essence helps open the third eye, and transcend the struggles of worldly life. This Essence energizes your spiritual cells and encourages you to keep your gaze inward It helps expels judgments and critical thoughts toward self and others, thereby making room to harness more light and love.
Tip: When going through a challenge or needing to problem solve, apply this Crown of Thorns Essence before meditating in (early) morning sun. Remain in meditation until you find the answer or perspective that you need.

- Take in morning sun, as in Ayurvedic teachings, this is the time when your subtle energy field can be totally recharged.
- Take a Shower (head bath is not necessary)
- Put on fresh natural fiber clothes (such as cotton, silk, linen); wear white clothes when possible to reflect outside energy
- Apply Shanti Kai™️ Sun Essences (see suggestions above) spraying as directed on label, or as desired. Alternatively, spray over crown, third eye, temples, heart center neck, throat and tops of feet, or areas of tension.
- If you have a sun mantra, such as the Sun Gayatri, morning prayers, or meditation, this is an ideal time to go within to this practice
Note: When sunlight is not an option, try simply getting outside for natural light and if weather is not permitting visualize making your connection to the sun. You might also consider investing in artificial lights available through many doctors and animal hospitals.
* Sunblocks have harmful chemicals that are readily absorbed through skin into your bloodstream, that your liver and organs simply cannot process. Beauty hype and fear around skin cancers have made us sunblock bots, and while your medical doctors may say otherwise (and we always suggest you consult with your doctor), studies show controversial evidence linking the rise of skin cancers to increased use of SPF in sunblocks. In fact, according to studies (referenced below) as the level of spf increased, so too did the statistics of skin cancers. Of course scientists were fast to link it to depleted ozone levels, and we suggest you check out the research yourself.
