Hi, friends. This blog post isn’t strictly about essential oils, but they do come into play. The reason for this post is that I have been noticing an increasing amount of people living in darkness, feeling lost and hurting, and if that’s you, I want to help you. You will need to keep an open mind as this stuff may be completely outside of your paradigm. If it doesn’t resonate with you, that’s ok. It took me a while to come around, too.
My teacher, Brahman Kyrie of The Brahman Project and Shanti Mission San Diego, runs a Satsang every Sunday morning at EVE Encinitas. You will hear many different definitions, but Satsang is simply a gathering of people seeking truth and light.
This Sunday’s theme was forgiveness. The exercise of forgiveness is one of the fastest ways to raise your vibration, maybe because it opens up the heart chakra (which is closely linked to the crown shakra) and lets God in (or love or light or source energy or whatever you want to call it.)
Forgiveness is not so much about “losing” or “giving in” or “letting people off the hook” as it is about freeing yourself from pain and suffering. Tony Robbins says “Forgiveness is a gift you give yourself.”
Whether we’re consciously aware of it or not, many of us carry past hurt around. It literally lives as programming in our cells. (Science is finally waking up to this truth that spiritualists have known for thousands of years.) This anger, hurt and pain can close up our hearts and feel a lot like brick walls going up around to protect us. When we let go, we can start to chip away at this brick wall, and once it collapses we can let in the light and connect to who we really are. We can be truly free to give and receive love.
On the drive to Satsang two mornings ago, I had no idea what the theme would be, but I did know intuitively that it would require surrender on my part. While my husband drove us to Encinitas I dug through my oil bag and pulled out 4 essential oils: Release, Believe, Humility and frankincense. I rubbed Release over my solar plexus and navel chakras (front and back), Believe on my crown, heart and solar plexus, Humility behind my ears, on my crown and on my heart, and I used frankincense along the entire length of my spine from base to the top back of my neck, on my 3rd eye, on my entire face and on my crown. (If I had them with me, I would have also used Surrender and Forgiveness.)
I had an extremely profound experience at this Satsang, and a HUGE emotional release. (At one point in the video you will see Brahman Kyrie attend to someone sobbing in the front row. That was me.) I had a really good cry and let go of a whole lot of stuff I didn’t know I was still carrying around. When I left, the heaviness in my lungs was gone and I felt so much lighter! I hope this guided meditation can help you in the same way. If you have essential oils, I encourage you to use them before pressing play, though in the meantime the meditation is great all on its own. In case you’re wondering what Brahman Kyrie is doing with her hands (because I wondered the same when I was brand new) she is sweeping our energy bodies and removing the gunk. It’s energy work, much like reiki.
Here is the recorded Satsang. For the best results, please watch/listen to this in a quiet place where you won’t have any interruptions, and sit comfortably on the floor or in a chair with your legs uncrossed (unless you’re in lotus position.) If you have essential oils for grounding and/or emotional release, use them beforehand, but again, it will still be powerful without. The oils are just a very effective tool to help the process along.
If you try this guided meditation and it helps you, please consider donating to Brahman Kyrie’s organization here: http://www.thebrahmanproject.com/donations-1/
If you are local to northern San Diego county, feel free to join us at Satsang every Sunday morning from 8-10 a.m. at EVE Encinitas on Coast Highway. It is open to all people regardless of faith or anything else. If you see me say hello. I always have essential oils with me if you need some help connecting.
Thank you for keeping an open mind and reading/watching/listening. Sending healing love and light to everyone, everywhere! May all beings be happy and free.
