Forgiveness, Emotional Release and a Guided Meditation

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.

Herbs vs essential oils – What’s the difference?

what-is-the-difference-between-herbs-and-essential-oils

When Young Living essential oils released their Vitality line of essential oils, a line of essential oils labeled specifically for dietary use, one of the questions a lot of people asked was “Why cook with herbal essential oils?  Why not just use the herbs themselves?”  This is a valid question.  In fact, when I was brand new to essential oils I thought the same thing, and you wouldn’t find essential oils in my cooking.  However, after learning a  thing or two I am now a big fan of using essential oils in my food, drinks etc.

First off, as I mentioned in a previous post, therapeutic grade essential oils are highly concentrated liquids extracted from the leaves, petals, roots, bark or peels of various aromatic plants, usually through gentle steam distillation.  They constitute the plant’s very essence, which is why they have the plant’s characteristic smell, and they also act as a plant’s “blood” so to speak, carrying oxygen and nutrients to the plant’s cells.  They keep the plant healthy and help fight off the stuff it doesn’t want, just as your immune system does for you.  The reason essential oil is so concentrated is because it takes a great deal of plant matter to get just a small amount of essential oil.  It takes dozens, sometimes even hundreds of a plant to get a single bottle of essential oil.  That’s why a single drop of essential oil goes a long way.  This is why you can add just one drop of Lemon Vitality essential oil to flavor a glass of water or a drop of dill essential oil in a veggie dip.  The flavor you get from essential oils packs a punch, and it doesn’t take much.

Secondly, let’s talk about frequency.  Quantum physics tells us that everything is essentially made up of energy at the quantum level, and as a result, everything you see (and even what you can’t see) has a frequency.  Frequency can be defined as a measurable rate of electrical energy that is constant between any two points.  Everything—whether it’s a person, a plant, a piano, or even an emotion—has a frequency.

Bruce Tainio of Tainio Technology in Cheney, Washington developed specialized equipment capable of measuring the biofrequency of humans and foods.  Measuring in Megahertz (MHz) he found that a healthy person has a frequency of around 62-68 MHz.  Unhealthy substances, lifestyles and—believe it or not—negative thoughts can cause dips in our frequency, and when it gets down low enough, our bodies start to show symptoms.  This is when illnesses can sometimes manifest.  It is so important for us to keep ourselves well and to keep our frequency up!

As I mentioned, lifestyle habits are a huge factor here.  Dried herbs have a frequency of 12-23 MHz, and that frequency goes up to 20-27 MHz in fresh herbs.  So the old adage that fresh is best is true!  However, this is where things get even more interesting.  Essential oils have a frequency between 52-320 MHz!  This means that—as far as frequency is concerned—even the lowest frequency oil is still higher and more beneficial to our bodies than their freshly picked counterparts.

Frequency, flavor and concentration aside, essential oils, unlike herbs, don’t have to be digested before they go to work in your body.  When you ingest food or herbs, your body first has to digest those foods, breaking them down before their nutrients can be assimilated.  Essential oils, on the other hand, do not have to be digested; their molecules are so teeny tiny that they are able to penetrate every cell of the human body in mere minutes, and many can even pass the blood-brain barrier.  This is because a single drop of essential contains approximately 400 million trillion molecules!  That is about 40,000 eo molecules for every cell in the human body.  Additionally, when you ingest a therapeutic grade essential oil, you are ingesting a plant’s concentrated life energy, complete with its micronutrients, oxygenating molecules and other therapeutic qualities.  Dried herbs and the like can lose as much as 90% of their nutrients and oxygenating properties.

So let’s recap.  Essential oils (when distilled properly from healthy, organic plants) are far more concentrated than herbs, have a higher biofrequency and do not need to go through the digestive process to work on our cells.  Please note that I am only referring to Young Living’s therapeutic grade essential oils labeled as dietary supplements, and not the essential oils you buy at the store; all oils are not created equal.  Please only ingest oils that 1) come from sources you know and trust 2) are specifically labeled for ingestion on the bottle and 3) are therapeutic grade and considered GRAS (generally regarded as safe) by the FDA.  Because of their Seed to Seal promise, Young Living essential oils meet all of those criteria.  If you would like more info on ingesting oils, you can read my past blog on the Vitality line of essential oils or you can contact me for more information.  To order oils, please use this link.  I hope you learned something new today.  Let’s connect soon!
