The chakras are energy centers for the development and embodiment of different levels of awareness and experience. Together they form an intricate system of energetic mechanisms; each chakra is capable of changing the vibratory rate of the energy that flows through it.

The human aura consists of several layers of interpenetrating energy fields called Subtle Bodies which surround each other and the physical body in a series of concentric circles. There are also seven chakras, or dynamic energy centers, which also interpenetrate the physical body and are located from the base of the spine to the top of the head. Each chakra vibrates at a higher frequency than the one below it and each subtle body vibrates at a higher frequency than the one it surrounds. Chronic problems in the physical body may often be the result of imbalances which originate in one or more of the subtle bodies or chakras.

Clove Bud Essential Oil

The health benefits of clove oil can be attributed to its antimicrobial, antifungal, antiseptic, antiviral, aphrodisiac and stimulating properties. The oil is used for treating a variety of health disorders including toothaches, indigestion, cough, asthma, headache, stress and blood impurities. The most common use of clove oil is in dental care. Several toothpastes, mouth wash and oral care medications contain clove oil as an ingredient.
 
Clove is an evergreen tree, which produces a flower bud that has numerous medicinal properties. It is often referred to as clove bud. Clove was extensively used in ancient Indian and Chinese civilizations and it spread to other parts of the world, including Europe, during the seventh and eight centuries. Even now, clove is used in several Indian and Chinese dishes.
 
Clove is rich in minerals such as calcium, hydrochloric acid, iron, phosphorus, sodium, potassium, and vitamin A and vitamin C.

In honor of this beautiful, Long Awaited spring weather, I’d like to introduce you to the Goddess Lada. 

She is a Slavic Goddess who’s themes are spring, protection, overcoming, kinship, energy, and joy. 
Her symbols are birch and bells.  
Lada has finally burst forth from Her winter hiding place this week and dances with joy, grateful for spring’s arrival. Her skirts sweep away sickness and usher in the earth’s blossoming beauty. She bears a birch tree and flowers to honor the earth’s fertility and to begin planting anew.

Good news, Wonderfans: The new shop is up and running! If you're in the neighbourhood, come by and say hello too - we'd love to show you what we've been working on and the new space. 

Wonderworks' new home has two practitioners spaces, plus we have an additional space which will be the new home of the Fleishman Gallery - that means we have three times as much spaces as when we were on Harbord! 

We have until June 10 to try to raise the funds we need to keep providing all the services and events that we are known and loved for. If you love Wonderworks, we very much would appreciate your support to our IndieGogo Campaign

One of the most iconic images of witches and magic is the infamous Besom (broom). Many cultures around the world associate the broom with goddesses and magic ritual. Here in the west we are most familiar with the image of a witch flying through the night sky on her broomstick.

The besom or broom was a popular tool for witches in the past because it was an everyday item that couldn’t be used as definitive proof of being a witch. For witches though, it had many purposes other than as a simple domestic tool.
