Accepting that a spiritual path can be easy and joyful, that the Universe is always seeking to bestow blessings and gifts upon us, all we need do is to be open to receive. While first working with this essence I was given a technique to use that is very simple and a lot of fun. I think of something I desire and open my heart to flood it with love and then feel it moving out into the Universe. A more complex technique is to visualize a tunnel or cord of light going from your crown chakra up to Divine Mind while opening the heart and sending love to your wish/desire.

For many people, owning or being around numerous healing tools on a daily basis can bring up a variety of issues that the healing tools are attempting to clear and yet the person feeling subconsciously overwhelmed, may resist the healing and allow the issues to fester within where they send out toxic energy. I have seen and heard about many instances where healers or owners of new age type shops for example can be very difficult to work for and have a never ending stream of complaints and issues that drive both staff and customers/clients away. In most cases the person is unaware of the type of energy they are sending out and wonder why they never seem to move ahead in their life's work. This essence can be used to help streamline the healing process so instead of having many issues surface at once, each issue is given a space in the queue so to speak which makes the issues much easier to deal as each issue arises, it is dealt with more positive energy so it can be channeled constructively. For those who work with large numbers of essences this essence can also help shield them from feelings of overwhelm and clears the feeling that they must tackle all their problems at the same time.

Golden Red Papaya
Helps a person to differentiate between what aspects of their psyche is most supportive and life enhancing for them to utilize and which are support players. For example, a person may feel that their greatest joy lies in teaching and yet they also have a talent for counseling others. The person may have taken on the role of counselor feeling they could do the greatest good for others in that profession and yet feel drained and exhausted as a result. Teaching as their primary means of financial support while integrating the counseling aspect as a secondary and as needed role, would be far more empowering and energizing for the person. This essence also links the three lower chakras and helps a person to feel that they are good, worthwhile and have much to contribute to life and others. It can help with relief of existential guilt, knowing that one deserves to be in the world and is lovable simply because one IS. Golden Red Papaya may increase and enhance sexual arousal and this energy can be used to stimulate sexual intimacy between couples or channeled into creative projects as one see fit.

Many people have reported feelings of bliss, being connected with the Universal flow, feeling such a strong connection and bond with Spirit that their faith has increased substantially and they expect the best to manifest in their lives which of course is precisely what occur, for what we focus on is what we receive.

This essence is also very helpful for those who tend to set aside their own important projects and goals in an effort to serve all those who come to them for help.
