"Natural Alchemy supported by Plants"
“I started my exploration into Essences while working as a Saturday boy in a health food shop called 'Foods of The Earth', in 1988.
It was in Dudley town centre, West Midlands, England.
I sold Bach Flower remedies and homeopathy as well as other health foods and supplements.
I liked the alternative world, it felt good.”
NBK Soul Evolution ~ Supported by Vibrational Essences
Choosing Vibrational Essences for Soul Evolution Sessions Elixir & Spray
Soul Evolution sessions include the use of Vibrational Essences. During this part of the session I am looking to find the right blends of essences to quieten your mind and emotions, integrating the parts of your psyche that have been disassociated or pushed away in your past. This is to support you on your return to your true state of wholeness, emotionally, mentally and physically. This is achieved by selecting a blend of essences that resonate the most with your true feelings and thoughts that are troubling you. Often these feelings are uncomfortable but keep resurfacing after perhaps being pushed away.
“When the mind is free of the constrictions of past conditioning, this means the essence has supported your human system to integrate and reach equanimity within the psyche. The aim is to return the energy system back to its true nature of stillness and wholeness. This is true natural alchemy, being supported by plant medicine.”
NBK Soul Evolution
“Neil has an amazing direct approach, his instinct and skilled communication led him straight to the core of my problem. Along with his caring demeanour and knowledge of essences, I certainly felt more positive and able to move forwards from what was holding me back after our consultation and I had taken the remedy. Thank you Neil.”
Leigh Bolland, Mother/Grandmother/Accounts Manager.
Each remedy has two states, I call this a “counter state.” The first state is the “blocked state” where the mind and/or body experiences a repeated thought or physical symptom, like a broken record trying to free itself. The second stage is the potential “freeing" or "surrender” crossroads, which is the effect the essence will have on your psyche and your whole system once the correct remedy is chosen. Your mind and body can then let go of the suffering, leading to quietening and eventually ceasing of the disturbance in the mind, body and emotions.

“I had an Soul Evolution session with Neil at the beginning of September 2018 and was struck by his kind and intuitive approach. By asking a few relevant questions and using cards he was able to get straight to the heart of the issue I am dealing with and prescribed a very supportive combination of essences for me to take. I have been taking them ever since and find them gentle but at the same time powerful in reaching the issue and giving me healing and support. Thank you Neil for your help and understanding.”
