Sometimes we can hold on to unresolved feels of pain and trauma. In order to access and release emotional trauma, we must stimulate the amygdala. One way to do this is through the sense of smell. Smell is the only one of our five senses that is directly linked to the lobe of the brain that houses our emotions and is shown to have a direct effect on the limbic system. Along with all positive emotions, negative emotions such as fear, anger, depression, and anxiety originate from this area.
Essential Oils address symptoms at a cellular level by deleting misinformation and reprogramming correct information so that cells function properly and in harmony with one another. Suppressed emotions and memories can lead to anxiety, panic attacks, and depression. Essential oils can help us surface and release these negative emotions from wherever they are stored in our cells or energy field.
Essential oils support healing in five stages. They strengthen us during each stage and prepare us for the next level of healing. For example, as we regain our physical health, we are invited to enter the emotional realm.
Five stages of healing:
1: Essential oils assist in healing the physical body:
Essential oils are powerful healers. Some essential oils are considered to be 40-60 times more potent than herbs. Essential oils assist the body in fighting unfriendly microorganisms, purifying organs, glands, and body systems; balancing body functions; and raising the body’s energetic vibration.
2: Essential oils assist in healing the heart:
As the oils secure our physical health, they provide us with the energy needed to penetrate the heart and enter the emotional realm. Essential oils raise the vibration of the physical body. As the body lives in higher energetic vibrations, lower energies (such as suppressed emotions) become unbearable. The body wants to release these feelings. Stagnant anger, sadness, grief, judgment, and low self-worth cannot exist in the environment of balance and peace which essential oils help to create.
We must release trapped negative emotions before we can receive positive feelings. The old must go to make space for the new.
Essential oils assist individual in taking an honest look within. They foster the right environment for healing, but they will not do the work for us. Essential oils prepare our emotional soul so that we can remove the weeds with greater ease.
3: Essential oils assist in releasing limiting beliefs:
Unlike emotions, which are temporary in nature, beliefs are long term and deeply rooted in our subconscious. Beliefs are our deeply held framework that is forged from the conclusions we make about our experiences. This belief framework forms the lens through which we see life. For better or worse, our beliefs about ourselves are what we use to define our identity. This has far-reaching effects on all our behavior, thoughts, and emotional patterns. All of us have positive and negative beliefs. However, our negative or limited beliefs can cause the same issues to reoccur over and over throughout our lives. Repeated experiences reinforce the associated emotional pathways. Essential oils assist in illuminating the emotional patterns of deeply held beliefs, encouraging us to identify what the limited beliefs are, releasing the trapped energy and associated emotions, and, finally replacing them with positive beliefs that will serve our highest good.
4: Essential oils increase spiritual awareness and connection:
All beings were created with divine intention. Acknowledgement of our spiritual nature and connection to our source is an essential part of healing. Most important in this stage is awareness of that intention and the infinite love available to us. It is from this love that our healing can become more complete.
5: Essential oils inspire the fulfillment of our life’s purpose:
When we experience the previous four aspects- essential to heal holistically- we are now ready to fully actualize our purpose and potential. This stage is where we achieve the clarity and courage to follow the path meant for us.
