I am a homeopath, tutor, reiki, and a gong practitioner. During my sessions, especially gong and reiki, I use essential oils. Best quality oils. You can contact me if you wish to find out more. I will be delivering a few workshops on homeopathy, gong – sound healing, and essential oils soon.
These are my tools to bring balance to your life. They help me and the women I work with to reclaim our power.
This time I will concentrate on essential oils.
I love essential oils. The purest ones, harvested in natural habitat, produce the highest vibrations and have medicinal purposes. Pachamama, meaning sacred Mother Earth is a living being with physical, astral, and spiritual bodies which interconnect. Pachamama is a nurturer and a spiritual mother who holds the secret of the Universe within her.
Vibrational healing like a gong is about the notion that all living organisms are infused with a life force or energy that is influenced by other energetic vibrations. This can be traced back to civilizations around the world. Over the centuries physicians and healers have discovered many ways of using light, sound, and other vibrational waveforms in ways they can bring about healing. It is possible that the flower remedies - essences encapsulating the energy of flowers - were first used therapeutically in Lemuria. They may have been taken as an aid to spiritual development and attaining enlightenment.
There hasn’t been much research done on essential oil frequencies, but for me, it is obvious that pure oils have a frequency. Medicinal properties and frequencies can elevate our health to another level. I have a very good experience with using essential oils during gong baths.
It always brings that extra dimension to it, and aromatic steam coming out of the diffuser in the light of the candles creates something magical. If I don’t use it in a diffuser, I put a drop or two in my palms.
I only work with the best, purest essential oils available. I call them the Spirits of the Earth.
How they can be used:
The remarkable thing about essential oils is that they can be used in many diverse ways.
When choosing which method, it is best to follow the safety guidelines (I listen to my inner guidance). As the chemistry and essential oil can dance with your own, healing will occur. Healing happens because your body is highly intelligent. Mother Earth and plant medicine give you gentle nudges and reminders to return to your optimal potential.
Breath connection. Aromatic.
Essential oils affect the body quickly and powerfully. When used aromatically, aromatic compounds interact with the olfactory system and limbic system to effectively instigate therapeutic chemical changes in the body.
When you delve deeper into the simple act of breathing, inhaling, and exhaling, it is more than just bringing oxygen into your body. Each time we inhale, we breathe in the oxygen and life force gifted to us from the surrounding plants and trees. As we exhale, we gift and return carbon dioxide, which the plants and trees need for their survival. It becomes a symbiotic relationship between you and the plant kingdom. As you inhale and exhale with mindfulness, your awareness expands. You recall and deepen your connection with nature. You can place a drop of your favourite essential oil in your hands and inhale by cupping your hands around your nose. I like using diffusers.
Inhaling essential oils can have an amazing and rapid impact on the body. The essential oil molecules absorb into your lungs entering the bloodstream. They also communicate through your olfactory system, influencing parts of your brain and altering the psychological function throughout your body.
In essence, the oil chemistry dances with the physical makeup and energy of your body. Although it may seem like you are just smelling an essential oil from a bottle, a diffuser, a spritzer, or pure –fume (are words for perfume used on the body), it is a highly potent and powerful way of using the essential oils.
Nothing takes you down memory lane faster than your sense of smell. As you inhale the essential oil, it will impact your mind and emotions. These beautiful aromatic compounds drift up your olfactory bulbs, enter the brain, and go straight to the limbic system. This is the brain’s emotional control centre, as well as where emotions are created. Here, you can create powerful aromatic anchors, (anchoring is a powerful technique for controlling thoughts and emotions. As you anchor, you can choose your state of mind. By being able to instantaneously create a mind state, you can draw upon your strengths at will, allowing you to be at your best in the moments that matter) so that every time you inhale an essential oil, it takes you back to a particular moment in time. For instance, when you breathe a wild orange, you can feel joy and uplift, every time you need a dose of this feeling, turn to this oil to create that response. In another example, when you breathe lavender, you connect with her as a comforter, the duvet of an aromatherapy kingdom. You can look to her when seeking stillness, calm, and security.
Using the essential oils in this way is transformational. It will help you to transmute whatever you feel, you need to move beyond. The oils work quickly and help to engage my courage and brave spirit, elevating my emotions within moments and transforming my mood, breathe by sacred breath. Inhalation and aromatic use of essential oils are extremely beneficial, powerful, and effective modes of using these gifts of the Earth. (“Gifts of essential oils”)
The bioactive energy of scent and the nose’s ability to absorb if for therapeutic benefits are proven by the efficacy of aromatherapy, which has been used for millennia throughout the Orient to cure disease. Medieval Arab physicians noted the potent medicinal properties of scents when they observed that perfumes and incense makers rarely suffered the ravages of cholera and other plagues which regularly swept by the middle East. Aromatherapy uses essential oils of certain fragrant plants to cure specific ailments by exposing aromas in the volatile form to the olfactory nerves in the nose, which are directly linked to the brain and the energy meridians. These essential oils are secreted in plants by special glands in the roots, stems, leaves, and flowers. Botanists compare these secretions to the hormones secreted in animals.
The Yellow Emperor’s classic states, essence transforms into energy. In other words, when the essential oils of aromatic plants are permitted to evaporate the air, they release their energy as fragrance, and this energy is absorbed by the olfactory nerves when a waft of fragrance enters the nose. Aromatherapy works only with scents derived from natural living sources, such as flowers, seeds, and roots. Synthetic scents have a smell but no energy and any sensitive nose can really tell the difference. In 1960, the French, medical journal L’Hopital published an article on aromatherapy by Dr J Valent, in which he explains this mechanism as follows:
“Carried by bloodstream, the ionized plant aroma, impregnates every corner of the body, powerfully revitalizes the polarized and discharged cells, replenishes electronics shortages by recharging the bio-electromagnetic batteries, and disperses cellular residue by dissolving the viscous and diseased substances of body fluids. It oxidizes poisonous metabolic waste products, increases energy balance, frees the mechanism of organic oxidation and of self-regulation, and reaches the lungs and kidneys, whence it is excreted or exhaled without trace.” (The Tao of Health, Sex and Longevity by Daniel Reid.)
Everything is energy. Albert Einstein said: “Everything in life has a vibration”. Vibration can be defined as an easy-to-measure rate of electrical energy that is constant between any two points.
Bruce Tainio did not only measure the bio frequency of human beings, he also did his experiments on foods, herbs, and other plants. Using megahertz (MHz) as the unit of measurement, Tainio found out that:
Essential oils started from a frequency of 52 MHz and the highest was 320 MHz (which is the frequency of pure Rose essential oil).
The clinical research by Bruce Tainio proved that essential oils have highest recognized, measurable frequency of any other form of plant extract known to man. Essential oils seem to build an environment in which fungus, bacteria, disease, microbes and other disease causing pathogens cannot endure.
Bruce Tainio developed a highly sensitive sensor to measure different frequencies, and different researchers found this:
I like combining the best quality essential oils with gong baths. Depending on the different frequencies of the essential oils, there are those that give you spiritual benefits, emotional benefits and others will give you physical benefits. The highest frequency of essential oils result in spiritual benefits. The middle frequency essential oil cause emotional benefits. They help to let go of traumas. When the essential oil is in your system, it helps you to dislodge past traumas by dealing with them on your consciousness where you can easily let them go. For example, applying Frankincense essential oil (147 MHz ) on your crown will leave you experiencing an uplifted state of moods.
I often use Wild Orange, Rose and Serenity during going baths. I absolutely love Helychrysum and I use it in blends which I create; for example:
I use them in a diffuser.
Using essential oils to boost frequency enables the body to rejuvenate worn-out cells while improving the immune defense. Frequencies of potent essential oils are almost 12 times higher than herbs and more than 21 times higher than foods. According to research (Bruce Tainio), a component with a higher frequency can raise the frequency of another component with a lower frequency. In this case, the substance with a higher frequency is the oil while the component with a low frequency is your body. This happens due to the principle of resonance, which explains, the tendency for two oscillating bodies at different frequencies to lock into phase so that their vibrations oscillate at a harmonized frequency. The principle of resonance, therefore, is the key to understanding the kind of effect that essential oils can leave on our own electromagnetic frequencies. Like gongs.
It is also important to remember that essential oils do not heal. What they do is to enhance the body’s ability to heal itself (Gongs and Homeopathy).
I believe that the elegance of the oils resonates gently with our body’s electrical fields, helping us restore harmonic health and general wellbeing on all echelons. Best quality essential oils create a wonderful scenography during gong healing sessions.
