Be Empowered By Aroma Therapy

Aromatherapy: The use of fragrant botanical oils for physical, psychological and spiritual well-being.

From as early as 4,500 before the common era, essential oils (powerful, concentrated organic compounds extracted steam-distilled or cold-pressed from plant flowers, fruit, resins, roots and bark) have been recognized for their natural healing powers that promote health and well-being. Powers over physical ailments and powers over emotional issues. Their fragrances soothe, heal, and invigorate the mind and body. Aromas act on the deepest parts of the brain and the central nervous system to enhance mood and emotions to relieve depression and anxiety and restore emotional wellness.

Their chemical constituents include antioxidants which encourage radiant health when used correctly. They have antiseptic, anti-inflammatory, antibacterial, anti-fungal and anti-parasitic properties. With hundreds of vitamins and other compounds, essential oils act as adaptogens which promote homeostasis. Essential oils are non-greasy and require only a few drops to have tremendous effects on emotional well-being, physical health or spiritual mindfulness. They easily penetrate deeply into the skin such that simple topical use with a carrier oil stimulates healing throughout the body as the compounds journey within. Using focused medicinal massage techniques, they stimulate the nervous system to release congestion and re-balance areas of the body affected by stress. With absorption into the bloodstream, these oils ease aches, pains, injuries while enhancing cellular renewal, blood circulation and effective detoxification for deep healing.

It is said that the sense of smell reaches the soul faster than any other sense. After all, scripture tells us that “Life” was breathed into Man. So it stands to reason that inhalation of “prana” leads to an enlivening of the “soul” … even enlightenment! Add to that an exquisite aroma and you gain a recipe for triggering emotional and even physical responses to help transform moods and move through different states of mind.

In the following video, Dr. Josh Axe and Jordan Rubin discuss essential oils nicely:

As you may have learned, many of these essential oils have powerful antibacterial and antiviral properties that surpass pharmaceutical variants in that they do not leave behind nor generate dangerous toxins for the body to deal with eventually. Essential oils are truly gifts to us through Nature.

Check out what Vanderbilt Hospital found when they began incorporating aromatherapy in their emergency room space:

But remember, it is important to use them correctly! There is a lot of unfounded as safe information floating around due to the success of two referral marketing companies whose associated distributors have been leading the way to knowledge about these Gd-given miracles. Unfortunately, their sole interest is to convince as many others as possible to peddle as many oils as possible … even while making claims as to their use that may be false. Always seek the help of a competent, certified authority when you need answers to important questions. As a general rule, though you will find some authorities knowledgeable in the use of essential plant oils internally, it is not the method of use recommended by aromatherapists. Not to say that one should never take an botanical oil internally. Just be sure to be in direct consultation with a responsible, competent authority.

It should be known that there is an effort at this very moment to help raise finishing funds to complete an independent aromatherapy documentary that seeks to deepen dialogues, dispel myths, empower engagement and encourage informed relationships with essential oils and their use in aromatherapy. Watch this preview:

Commonly Used Essential Oils

There are many options to consider, but here are some popular ones:

  • Bergamot is a citrus-scented oil that helps lower stress and anxiety levels.

  • Lemon not only increases energy and focus, but boosts your immune system and promotes healthy digestion.
  • Peppermint is energizing and refreshing, and it can improve concentration and help relieve headaches and nausea.

The Quest for Super Foods

The word superfood is a marketing term for food with supposed health benefits. The term is not commonly used by experts, dietitians and nutrition scientists, many of whom dispute that particular foods have the health benefits often claimed by their advocates. But whatever, their stance, there are certain foods which are jam-packed with nutrients and dense with quality. No doubt, incorporating such foods into your meal plans can trememndously impact your health for good! Of course, the key to a healthy diet is to consume a variety of nutritious foods in the right quantities.

“What You Eat Matters” is a new, life-changing documentary uncovering and revealing the effects of our typical Western diet on our health, the environment and animals. Watch it:

SunFood3

Sergei Boutenko discusses the health benefits that come from introducing more greens into your diet. His extensive Study of plants along with the latest in scientific research makes it fun, easy, and safe to introduce mineral rich wild edibles into your diet.

If by chance you are interested in a dynamic whole-food formula that contains 19 vegan, organic and wild-crafted green superfoods – in addition to grasses, dark leafy vegetables, herbs, algae and sea vegetables – plus an amazing blend of enzymes in a specialized probiotic complex to aid normal digestive health and immune function, Sun is Shining™ works to provide your body with incredible nutrition, while simultaneously alkalizing and energizing your inner ecosystem. There is no other green superfood blend as robust and advanced as Sun is Shining™! It is suggested you give it a place along with your other nutritional provisions.

SiS

In any case, it should be more clear now that greens and other raw plant food edibles can transform the way you feel. That’s where the above nutritional supplement can come in handy. Not many of us have the time nor the resources to go outdoors, even to a vegetable garden, to collect nutrient rich leafy green edibles. So a shortcut is a good thing.

The view on life, as an elderly citizen with a lot of experience, is truly an inspiration and motivation. Listen to what the following elders have to say about what is important:

Even beyond nutrition, there are other considerations that need to be addressed. Always in all ways respect the gifts that life offers you.

Animated Living Enlivens

4923BE53-EDAB-4023-BBCF-C1E8A62B2FBD-1200x897[1]

No one I know is satisfied with a boring life. I can’t imagine anyone who would be! So what is it that holds some people from creating the life of their good dream? Perhaps they need to learn “the secret for acing life”? (i.e.: Always DO the thing you find the most emotionally difficult to do in whatever situation you find yourself in). Listen to Leo from Actualized.org

The emotionally challenged life sustains the actualization of intimacy with your being and leads to a richer, more rewarding life, with fulfillment and peace of mind. One way or another, you lead the way to where you’ll end up. Take charge of your life and be distinguished as yourself from all others. Animate your life! Write its story and play the part in your own “Emmy” “award winning” performance. Sometimes, even a little exaggeration will make you and others believe your seriousness about the situation. Take an example from The Maori:

I’m not saying you have to express yourself exactly that way, but you do have to instill within yourself the determination and will to succeed. After all, who decides what a meaningful life is to you? YOU Do! Your imagination can unlimitingly unlock amazing future unfoldings for you within your world.

life-animated-poster[1]

Of course, the animation of life that I am speaking about goes beyond the scenario viewed in the video and suggests that you “bring to life” your act of living and not go about it hazily, in a fog, but rather clear-headed with bearing. Meet your emotional challenges head on and be the one who activates and actualizes your being. From the most sensitive issue to the least, you’ll strengthen your conviction to reveal the real you. Whatever works for you, that you should be focused to do.

This is deliciously cool way to play … in an animated way!

Time waits for no one . . . Life goes on and passes like a shadow. Should ye not be doing the things that will cause you to live happy? Like I said before, write your story with a happy ending and play the role of the successful achiever . . . Whatever your goal, do the thing the most emotionally difficult for you to do and you’ll open the door to your well-deserved success. Become animated with love of your gifts in life. Those you bring as well as those given to you from others. Enliven your living through understanding its preciousness and your importance as part of the whole . . . You as a universe, your spirit in your body, your family, your community, our society . . . A small part yet a great asset.

96d660b2ac8087f1c4f9aae8f846ea83[1]

The road to an “enlivened” life is full of the unknown. But you can conquer the fear of it by having a good reason “why you must travel it”. How important is it for you to become . . .? Think well, generate the right feelings . . . and you will bring the results you desire.

It’s how you think that determines the happiness in your life. Use your power to control your estimate of things or occurrences and animate your thoughts to serve you well!

Personal Responsibility and The Power of Intention

Yep! Personal responsibility is what needs to be taken before any attempt at anything. Your response ability is what enables you to perform whatever it is you are to perform. Being able to respond to stimuli is an important part of action and re-action. How you act is a matter of practice. You define your habits.

When “who is in charge here” comes to question as you take on a project, YOU are the only one who will make sure that you are on track to getting what you want … And if you don’t get it, it’s no one else’s fault nor their problem. It’s your “baby” … You help it grow.

The-Moment-You-Take-Responsibility

Having the courage to accept that you are 100% responsible for everything gains you a power that very few people can actually take advantage of. The power of creation … A spring board for intent … A hand on the future. Where do you want to bring yourself?

future-vision-kid-and-field

Taking personal responsibility is the first step to self-actualization. By committing yourself to pursuing a better you, you will be constantly inspiring yourself to greatness. Leo at Actualized.org has got lots more to tell you regarding the foundations of this topic.

Dr. Wayne Dyer also talks about this as well with the foundations for inner development:

The second step in the process of self-actualization is to use the power of intention.

IntentAction

When you are inspired to act with clarity in alignment with truth and your conviction to uphold that truth, you will more quickly manifest your desires simply because of the alignment you have with what you want to attract into your life. Just as you intended! Listen to this clip of Dr. Wayne Dyer:

quote-intent-is-a-force-that-exists-in-the-universe-when-sorcerers-those-who-live-of-the-source-carlos-castaneda-85-53-59[1]

Take charge of life and let the power of intention pulse through you for a purposeful life. Align yourself with your passions and activate your future achievements starting now.

The Power of Unconditional Appreciation

It’s going to seem a lot like Abraham Hicks Day with this blog post so hang on. I get a “kick” out of their video excerpts. Esther Hick’s “channeling” of what sounds like valid information is worth spreadinging I think. I’m imagining that you can agree after already hearing some of the teachings and won’t mind the seeming repetition. Of course your comments after reading this post and any of the others are appreciated!

A lot of people question the efficacy of prayer. Can one be sure it’s worth the effort to pray if the prayer isn’t fit for the ears of “The Listener”. For eample, one’s heart is not as “in the moment” as it should be? What is “It” listening for? What is expected of you when standing before “The Almighty Creator” and how well do you feel about how you are doing that … The total “You” … in that position? Who are “You” anyway? Why would it matter to “It” to answer you? What would come out of granting your desire, need or want? That which sees the end at the beginning already foresaw the geneology of the matter whole! Where does this prayer of yours fit in?

Perhaps simply being a matter of your being an extension of “It’s” energy lends you the power to connect directly with “It” … your “Soul” within, and have a real “heart to heart”? A major point of this life experience is to expand upon that which was created before us and unknowingly develop it forward … continually. At least that what they bring down:

So I’ve learned that prayer at it’s best is an acknowledgement of who we are in relation to the scheme of “The Creation” with an appreciation of the knowledge that no matter what, “Source” has our “back” … “It” is with us in all manners of our being and simultaneously encouraging The Universe to favor our advancement at all times. We get back what we put in and have the benefit of internal guidance that leads toward expanded enlightenment! We just have to be open to it … allowing our minds to focus with greater and greater clarity on the things in our lives that we feel happy about … and there are or should be many. Once you set your point of attraction to daily experiences of appreciation … to recognition of the abundance which is yours in this life … giving thanks for the “gift” of this experience “Source” provides us with … first thing each morning in your wake up “ceremony”… feel the return of the energy you have come to know of as “YOU” in the world … And begin to unfold into newness:

“Thank you for this new opportunity to experience again the wonders of Your Universe and how it seems to me as if You relate to me as the center of it all … taking care to provide all of Your Creation with sustenance and “light” …  and I benefit by being able to use my environment as “the building blocks” from which to “build” a new reality for myself each step of my way … I recognize that thoughts help stir the creation of reality and lead up to what manifests.  I especially appreciate that what will unfold for me in my experience this day will also one way or another help me onto the path most suitable for me to get to where I need to be going … to help me get to where I want to be … in the most efficient way possible … Because it is You who is guiding me and things cannot possibly go wrong … at least in the sense that they’d be the wrong things to happen … even if I might have thought so when they happened … You know what I mean 😉 “.

So “Source” is the “expanded version” of us … Supreme alignment with well-being and the vibrationally improved version of us that we sifted out from our life experiences? Our only “work” is to tune in alignment with the new and improved version that we “carved out”? By going forward with the flow of our expansion and who we are becoming, that’s what is meant by following the call of “Source”?

Every single one of us is unique and a valuable part of the Universe. Every one of us! With the “birthing” of improved preferences, the larger part of  ‘Source Energy” turns its undivided attention to that improvement and the expanded Universe moves on! “Source” flows with improvement and the expansion of “It”‘s Creation. Worry is absolutely unnecessary. Allowance of the process is necessary … So is appreciation of the broader perspective with asking for improvements along the way … As well as feeling the power of the life experience and moving in the direction of the energy which creates worlds! We must focus our point of attraction on the “the call” of “Source” and flow with “It’s” Universal current of pure well-being. Acknowledge that within you is a guidance system … your feelings about things. Care about the way you feel and constantly train yourself into better and better feeling thoughts. This is the way you establish alignment with who you are constantly becoming … You are thus immersed in living a joyous life. You can say then that the power of unconditional appreciation has its perks, ehh?

The following exerpt is an example of an appreciative “rampage” in “The Vortex”:

And now for something completely different … Enjoy!

That is a fine example of a spiritual human “being” … in expression of a personally crafted physical experience … Fun, artful expression of talent beyond convention … Done skillfully with love … Rich, famous and loved by her fans. A heroine! It’s amazing how many successfully concluded transformations she made over time … each one expanding beyond the former while maintaining the dignity of her greatness all throughout … She put her soul fully in her “prayer” and incessant good, happy feeling into her actions.

We are all capable of so many myriad feats and forms of greatness it is beyond imagination. But we have to use courage to express it … like the folk hero that succssfully defeated the force of evil and gained victory for the good … It doesn’t happen without effort on our part … As we sift through the contrasts in our experience, we define more clearly what we are preferring in life … and “Source” boosts your “Inner Being” … your “soul” if you prefer, to be the better you. Much of the real beauty of this lies in the varied uniqueness each individual one of us brings through our “selves” to the mix of humanity.

It’s important to emphasize that life is an exploration into the unknown … Ideally guided by a sense of direction chosen by passionate discovery … To each his/her own driving, motivating force … combined with the expanding growth of the inner “being” … the “soul” … seeking to fulfill itself with joyous experience in this physical world. Prayer in its many forms joins our “souls” with their Source” to become “charged” with encouragement … I think.

We could examine the lives of many individuals to find that the reality of spirituality is strongly a part of our lives. But it seems to me to be unnecessary. After all, we are all basic, yet nonetheless powerful, creative, spiritual “Source” energy contained within a physical human vessel. The reason being a desire to expand the content of consciousness and to use it in defining better being … selfishly altruistic simultaneously.

I’ve heard that the feeling of love is your experience of Gd. When you move into the “absolute”, you move into love. The realm of the “relative” was created in order that we can experience our “selves” … Devised as “real” so that we can get to know our selves experientially with Gd contrived in such a way that it appears “Source” has created something other than “Itself”. “It’s” all that is, yet contracted and seeming as separate. Deep!

So there you have it! Unconditional love with a portal to personal greatness … You can choose to “be Gd” … You are The Master of You. Go forth mighty one and be … Be the better being you are. Ask for what you need along the way and it is given in the most appropriate manner for your benefit … with love. Remember, thoughts rooted in fear produce one kind of manifestation on the physical plane whereas thoughts rooted in love produce another kind of manifestation on the physical plane … Your thoughts decide which will happen. The “secret” of the relative world is to ignore the propensity to think with roots in fear and choose only thoughts rooted in love! In every instant, moment or circumstance.

As an aside, I think it’s funny how we’ve been lead to believe that Jewish Jeshu actually looked like the picture in the above video. 😀 … He was a Middle Eastern Jew! Darker skinned than a European to say the least. Anyway, just had to share that. Not that it matters really, but I bet he didn’t look like that. Anybody draw back then?  What if Vincent Barzoni was correct? Would that be so terribly wrong?

150383

LOL!

But that brings me to another thought. A deep one …

As far as Gd is imagined, we have no real idea what “That” looks like … “It” has no body, yet It is everything … and ONE. There is no separation and It can be recognized in everything yet sensually ephemeral and almost non-existent. It Is As It Is and will Be as It will Be. We have no say in the matter … We’re just extensions … But we have a manner in which we say … Thanks for this opportunity to emulate You! There’s power in every moment and blessings in disguise. Nothing happens by “accident”. We too are GREAT!

Go for it … All the best!

 

 

Oh Sweet Jane Where Hath Though Been?

Feeliing in the mood for an artful transformation?

There’s a lot of discussion of the use of Cannabis sativa for medicinal purposes as a nutritional supplement … Well, I’m totally in favor! You see, perhaps better, imagine you see … It is the plant that propelled me on to fields of study related to the uses of herbs, roots and spices in nutritional healing. Alas, those were good days! 😀 … Wouldn’t mind a “bush for buds” in my garden … just for the fun of it … and it’s health benefits on sanity! 😀 … Just joking wit ya … I’m sane without it for sure. I like more that there is growing evidence of it’s benefits against cancerous developments and that CBD dramatically reduces the frequency and severity of seizures in children and adults that suffer with intractable epilepsy. There’s a lot going on in the medical marijuana “field”:

Ralph Smart, Infinite Waters, has listed what he says are the “secrets” marijuana smokers won’t tell you … The videos are very entertaining:

Despite the evidence against alcohol, cigarettes, addictive substances, caffeine, sugar even and some pharmaceutical medicines, not one death in thousands of years has been attributed to sweet “Jane”! There is a more sinister plot at hand that “Mary” threatens:

The following is a forum discussion revealing what’s said to be the latest scientific findings, legilization and enforcement issues … how to weave marijuana and hemp back into American lives:

More research is necessary. We need to know the truth … The whole truth and nothing but the truth! Let’s not let the world go crazy! We have to be careful who has the right to set our policy, which ideally should be with the will of the people, not against it! Demonizing a Gd-given plant that offers such “good” vibrations for no good reason? What the heck!

This last video touched upon something quite scary that in case you missed it, you can get a deeper sense of what’s “up at stake” here:

Is this for real? The following report is of someone who says that she is “a targeted individual”. It’s unbelievable for lack of wanting to believe what she says … It’s scary. Could this be real?

Imagine that? NO! On second thought, rather not! Too intense a reality to experience.

Oh No! CIA Mind Control?

What’s the world come to? Is there any way to escape? As intense as all this is, those of us who want to “live”, in the fullest sense of the word, must find ways to access the benefits of what’s available without supporting the evil aspects of “the trade.” Did you also catch the statement, that cannabis has the ability to deter mind control? That’s good to know!

All this talk about manipulation is a bit unnerving. It is wise though to recognize the signs that identify it and “nip it in the bud” ASAP! So …

In truth it’s an inherent part of life in the way people do business. The art of persuasion is a large part of the sales industry and even has handy use in presenting oneself before employers and the like. But should never be used with evil intent. That is simply wrong … in any of our doings.

So, is hemp the most powerful plant on Earth? It sure serves a purpose … In fact, many!

For sure, I am not advocating mis-use of the herb nor in support of deteriorating minds, Gd forbid! But I do recognize the need to allow the gifts given to us to be used in their fullness … For what other reason are they here among us?

The following documentary explores the long-standing relationship of human beings and cannabis, from its use in ancient Asia to its ban in 20th century America … Believe it or not, enjoy!

The History Channel put together this compilation if you are interested in learning more about the history of man’s experience with psycho-active “foods” and “drugs”:

While we’re on the subject of mind-altering plant substances, you might be interested in this next documentary which traces the use of DMT containing plants throughout the ancient world, the major world religions, and beyond! FYI 🙂 … Just to know more!

Whatever you find yourself to be doing in your world, do BE SAFE!

Guard the valuable gift the world has … that is YOU. All the best!!

 

 

Parallel Realities

In an article in The International Business Times, Neil Dagnall and Ken Drinkwater ask the question, “Could parallel realities be giving you memories of things that never happened?

Is it possible that parallel realities are real or is it that we just imagine that they exist … and come to believe that they do? Crazy stuff going on here. What do you think?

Here’s another video by Aaron Doughty … I like his presentation manner, succinct delivery and clear explaination of this interesting concept. I’m curious what you have to say about all this. Is it all just a “crock of turds” 😀 ?

Is it “Aaron Doughty Day”? My “parallel”ing … I’m fascinated with his delivery. From his mouth, you’ll gain a greater grasp of this information than if I were to write about it. Whatever, what we have here is “food for thought” and for better “minding” of your busy-ness! Here he reminds me of Abraham Hicks discussions. You might want to compare the two teachings:

😉 For comparison sake the following is the Abraham version of this stuff. Abraham explains through Esther Hicks (link connects another discussion about parallel realities from their viewpoint) about the power present to us in our “now” mpoments and that the primary work for us to do is to establish a positively set” point of attraction” that serves us our preferred outcome:

As you learn to focus your attention on your becoming, with clarity and purpose, the manifestations that occur are the reflections of your thoughts and beliefs.

Hey, are you familiar with The Twilight Zone? Happened to be one of my favorite TV shows to watch growing up. May have influenced my development beneath the “radar” of my consciousness. Is there a way to find out? In any case, check out this episode:

Suddenly I’m reminded again of The Talking HeadsHow did I get here?

Ralph Smart, aka Infinite Waters, speaks about synchronizing reality with the “path” you’ve inwardly chosen. Here he reveals the effect thought and determination has had in his life and how our dominant thoughts align with our life to become our experiences:

10 Signs Everything You Want To Attract Is On Its Way To You

Wayne Dyer has a recording where he speaks of the 101 Ways to Transform Your Life … Become A New Human Being. Those of us who really want to “soar” above and beyond our “limitations” should hear his method for shifting into the transformed reality we desire. Inspiring spirits, this in”spiritation” occurs now!

Lots here to think about! However, no doubt, it is now more clear from all this information that we have the power to control our destiny. In fact it is we who determine it! Which parallel reality will you choose?

Become a Better Human Being … Master the Art!

And now, for your listening pleasure, I bring you to the following parallel broadcast … Enjoy!
