Just how much do our emotions play on our health? We all hold unresolved feelings of pain and hurt which need to be brought to the surface for transformation and healing. Whether it be a death, loss of a job, divorce or anything negative in your life; emotions play a HUGE part of our health. When we are stressed or depressed our emotions fluctuate and wreak havoc on our adrenals, which produce all of our hormones.
Essential oils play a powerful role in emotional healing. They support healing in five stages. They strengthen us during each stage and prepare us for the next level of healing.
The Five Stages are:
– Assist in healing the physical body
– Assist in healing the heart
– Assist in releasing limiting beliefs
– Increase spiritual awareness and connection
– Inspire the fulfillment of our life’s purpose
Essential oils can be used aromatically, topically and internally. Many popular oils are Basil, Oregano, Cinnamon, and Ginger.
Essential oils are the vital fluids of plants that are their life blood. They are called “essential” because they are necessary for the life of the plant and contain the “essence” of the plant. Essential oils contain life force, intelligence, and vibrational energy that imbues them with healing power that works for people.
The story of oils begins in the Bible with Adam and Eve, when God placed them in a garden. In Genesis, when God provided for all of their needs in that first paradise, there is no mention of a shelter of any kind. Instead, God placed them out-of-doors in a natural setting among the flowers, shrubs, grasses and trees as their furniture and dwelling place. (Genesis 2:8)
There are 1,031 references to essential oils in the Bible, including at least 33 species. So, if there are so much mentioning of oils in biblical times, where and why did we ever get away from them?
I’m going to find out as I read these two books that just came in the mail today. So excited to read these and share with you what I will be learning. After all, if it’s in the Bible, then we should be doing it, right?
