Key Qualities: Integration, Unity, Revealing the Divine
This star cluster performs an important role in aligning consciousness within the Galaxy with other neighbouring galaxies. In this way it can be thought of as a medium of exchange, whereby energy patterns that feature in other galaxies are translated into meaningful and appropriate forms to transfer towards the consciousness of those living within this galaxy. Usually this transfer happens through pulsed waveforms, packaged into encapsulated seeds of light, on the principle that the acorn contains the oak and yet, importantly, that fact does not enforce germination. These stars and the beings for whom they are home offer, but do not impose. As we on Earth go through this current evolutionary burst, we can find ourselves beginning to reach into the range of their transmissions. The urge to greater oneness and harmony, both within ourselves and with each other, can be both a ticket of entry to their realms and a result of opening to these transmissions.
The beings of these stars have a role of guardianship, nurturing awareness of the Divine in ways that are concordant with harmonious evolution across the Galaxy. Where there is such a range of evolutionary levels and perspectives on the meaning and direction that life should demonstrate, such a role requires a very great deal of experience and a high level of skill together, above all, with great integrity. Long and careful study of all that a galaxy is, over many millions of years, has enabled these beings to take on such a role, even yet with a continuous monitoring of the most subtle emanations from the soul of the Galaxy itself. These beings consider it a great privilege to be granted permission to assist the evolution of the Galaxy in this way.
About the Essences
What do I receive?
A 10 ml blue glass bottle and dropper cap containing natural mineral water and organic brandy as a preservative together with an information leaflet.
How to take the essences
The essences are designed to be taken by mouth a few drops at a time up to four times a day. You can take them undiluted or mixed with a drink. You can take more than one essence at a time. However you may find that more than three essences used together may feel a little too ‘busy’.
The principle of the essences
Each star is a being whose physical body is the brilliant sphere of light we see in the night sky. Its light communicates the energetic and spiritual qualities of that star. By focusing on a star we imbibe these qualities and strengthen them within us.
How the essences are made
The essences are made from distilled natural mineral water with organic brandy as a preservative. The spiritual light of the star is then channelled into each essence. You can read more here.
Storing your essences
Store in a dark, cool place and use by the date on the label.

Where is it?
In the constellation of Serpens Caput (the Snake’s Head). It lies on the outskirts of our Galaxy about 24,500 light years from Earth.
How big is it?
It is home to more than 100,000 stars, with some estimates saying it has as many as half a million. It is about 165 light years across.
How old is it?
Not much younger than the Universe, it is thought to be about 13 billion years old, more than twice as old as our solar system. However astronomers have observed some much younger stars, perhaps created from collisions between stars or the transfer of mass from binary stars.
Why is it called M5?
In the late 1700s French astronomer Charles Messier started listing strange objects that didn’t seem like ordinary stars. On May 23rd 1764 he found it and labeled it as M5, because it was the fifth on his list.
If it is very clear and you have very good eyesight, you might just see it. Otherwise you will need binoculars or a telescope. Only a big telescope will show it as being made up of many stars.
From the northern hemisphere looking south it is highest at about 10 pm in mid-June. Because the stars return to the same place in the sky some two hours earlier with each passing month, it’s highest in the sky around 8 pm by mid-July.
Serpens Caput is a relatively faint constellation to the left (as you look south) of the much brighter stars Arcturus and Spica. Using a fist at arm’s length for a guide, M5 is a good two fist-widths to the southeast of yellow-orange Arcturus and three fist-widths to the east of blue-white Spica, the brightest star in the constellation of Virgo.
