Essential Oils from the Bible

essential-oils 1Daily applications of essential oils in Biblical times was common and was used as medicine for illness, to balance emotions, and as nutritional supplement.  They were even used to case out ‘unclean’ spirits.

Our Creator has provided these plants and oils for us to heal our bodies, minds and Spirits, through the smallest molecular components of Mother Earth.  Essential oils and aromas are the original source of healing used in combination with Therapeutic Massage, Reflexology, and ‘Hands On’ Healing or ‘the laying on of hands.’

How do essential oils work?

Essential oils immediately penetrate the skin and cellular membranes. They diffuse throughout the blood and tissues instantly in a matter of seconds! Oils cross the brain-blood barrier and reach the amygdala and the limbic system which is the integrative center for emotions, emotional behavior, and motivation, in the brain.

List of Biblical Essential Oils:

Cinnamon Bark – The warm, spicy aroma of cinnamon has been sought throughout the ages both as a valuable commodity and for its ability to improve wellness. Cinnamon is thought to promote healthy cardiovascular and immune function, and acts as an antiseptic. You can also use it to enhance your cooking, or dilute and massage into chakras to create a soothing, relaxing sensation.

Frankincense – Has a sweet, warm, balsamic aroma that is stimulating and elevating to the mind. Useful for visualizing, improving one’s Spiritual connection, and centering, it has comforting properties that help focus the mind and overcome stress and despair. Frankincense is considered the holy anointing oil in the Middle East, where it has been used in religious ceremonies for thousands of years. More recently, it has been used in European and American hospitals and is the subject of substantial research. Frankincense is also a valuable ingredient in skin care products for aging and dry skin. The ancient Egyptians used it in rejuvenation face masks.

Juniper – Has a clean, mildly penetrating, woody scent that has a cleansing effect on the mind, Spirit, and body. It may work as a detoxifier and cleanser, is beneficial to the skin.

Pine – Has a refreshing, invigorating aroma. First investigated by Hippocrates, the father of Western medicine, pine is soothing for stressed muscles and joints when used in massage. It shares many of the same properties as Eucalyptus, and the action of both oils is enhanced when they are blended.

Cypress – Has a woody smell and has been known in supporting the body’s natural response to irritation and injury as well as aiding normal breathing. This oil also has historical use as an additive in perfumes and as an adhesive.

Galbanum – Has an earthy aroma. It was used in ancient temple ritual incense anointing associated with springtime. Galbanum supports the immune, digestive, respiratory, circulatory, and other body systems.

Myrrh – Has a rich, smoky, balsamic aroma that is purifying, restorative, revitalizing, and uplifting. It is a helpful aid to meditation, having one of the highest levels of sesquiterpenes available. Sesquiterpenes are a class of compounds that have a direct effect on the hypothalamus, pituitary, and amygdala, the seat of our emotions. Myrrh is referenced throughout the Old and New Testaments of the Bible. The Arabian people believed it helped wrinkled, chapped, and cracked skin. Today, myrrh is widely used in oral hygiene products.

Spikenard – Was highly regarded in India as a perfume, health-supporting herb, and skin tonic. Prized at the time of Christ, it was used by Mary of Bethany to anoint the feet of Yeshua before the Last Supper. This is a relaxing and soothing oil for the skin.

Cedarwood – Has a warm, balsamic, woody aroma. It is relaxing and soothing when used for massage, and has long been used as a beneficial ingredient in cosmetic preparations for oily skin.

Sandlewood – Has a rich, sweet, warm, and woody aroma that is sensual and romantic. Used traditionally as incense in religious ceremonies and for meditation, it is uplifting and relaxing. It is valued in skin care for its moisturizing and normalizing properties.

Fir – Traditionally used for muscular aches and pains, the warm aroma of balsam fir soothes and rejuvenates body and mind. It is known for supporting respiratory function and also believed to create an uplifting sense of well-being.

Hyssop – A biblical oil that was also sacred to ancient Greeks, has a fresh, woody scent that is slightly sweet. Hyssop is noted for its purifying properties.

Myrtle – Has a clear, fresh, herbaceous scent, similar to eucalyptus. Supportive of the respiratory system, skin, and hair, it has been researched for its effects on glandular imbalances* and its soothing effects when inhaled. It is also helpful for meditation and lifting the Spirit.

Essential Oils are making a remarkable and necessary reemergence. Essential Oils were a commodity during biblical times, and are a commodity and need for Humanity now! They will be ‘essential’ in the future of health and overall well-being of generations to come.  Christ Yeshua, Mary Magdalene, and many other disciples wrote about and used essential oils in their daily routine. Now allow yourself to heal with the nectar of Nature.

If you would like to buy some essential oils.

May you be blessed with happiness, health, wealth, joy, bliss, and longevity!

Prayers for Shielding & Protection from Psychic Energies!

Spiritual Warrior
Ephesians 6:10-18 NIV

The Armor of God

Finally, be strong in Christ and in its Mighty power.  Put on the full armor of God so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes.  For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms.  Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand.  Stand firm then, with the belt of truth buckled around your waist, with the breastplate of righteousness in place, and with your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of Love & Peace.  In addition to all this, take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one.  Take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God.  And pray with pure intent in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests.  With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying to God for Humanity and Gaia, Mother Earth.

AND SO IT IS.

Lord, make me a channel of thy peace,

that where there is hatred, I may bring love;

that where there is wrong, I may bring the spirit of forgiveness;

that where there is discord, I may bring harmony;

that where there is error, I may bring truth;

that where there is doubt, I may bring faith;

that where there is despair, I may bring hope;

that where there are shadows, I may bring light;

that where there is sadness, I may bring joy.

Lord, grant that I may seek rather to comfort than to be comforted;

to understand, than to be understood;

to love, than to be loved.

For it is by self-forgetting that one finds.

It is by forgiving that one is forgiven.

It is by dying that one awakens to Eternal Life.

Reiki Energy and Christ Consciousness

Cradle of light

What is Reiki?

Reiki Symbol 

Rei – Spiritual Wisdom

The word Rei means universal.  The word Rei as it is used in Reiki is more accurately interpreted to mean supernatural knowledge of spiritual consciousness.  This is the wisdom that comes from the sacred feminine balance the energy of the sacred masculine.  Knowledge of the esoteric or supernatural realm allows for connection to God-Consciousness ‘Christ Consciousness,’ if used in the name of Jesus Christ (aka Yeshua.)   Reiki understands each person, down to their molecular, atom, and quantum level.  It knows the cause of all problems and difficulties and knows what to do to heal them.  Reiki is the flow of energy, ‘Qi,’ or energy, descending into the practitioner and healing all participants with special ‘light codes,’ or symbols.

Ki – The Life Force

Ki means the same as Qi in Chinese, Prana in Sanskrit, and Mana in Hawaiian.  It has been given many other names by the various cultures that have been aware of it.

Ki is life force, or the essence of all life.  The essence of all life is electromagnetic in nature.  It is also a vital life force for the survival of all organisms on the planet.  This is the nonphysical energy that animates all living things.  As long as something is alive, it has life force circulating through it and surrounding it; when it dies, the life force departs and the electromagnetic energy returns to the life force, whence it originated.

If your life force or electromagnetic current is bogged down or low, there is a restriction in the energy flow, causing vulnerability to disease and illness.  When the life force is high, the body, mind, Spirit is in homeostasis and ‘Ki’ flows naturally and smoothly through all meridians of the body, causing wellness.  Life force plays an important role in everything we do.  It animates the body and also is the primary energy of our emotions, thoughts, and spiritual life.

The Asian culture place great importance on the life force or what they call Chi ‘Qi.’  They have studied it for thousands of years and have discovered that there are different kinds of Chi.  The (Yellow Emperors’ Classic of Internal Medicine) which is over 4,000 years old, lists thirty-two different kinds of Chi.

Ki is used by martial artists in their physical training and mental development.  It is used in meditative breathing exercises called Pranayama, and by the shamans of all cultures for divination, spiritual awareness, manifestation and healing.  Ki is the nonphysical energy used by all healers.  Ki is present all around us and can be accumulated and guided by the mind.  Christians call it the ‘Holy Spirit,’ because it is inside you and all around you.  When it can flow through the body freely, it can produce ‘healing miracles,’ just as Jesus lay his hands on the sick and heal them.

‘The Kingdom of God is inside you and all around you, not made in buildings of wood and stone.  Split a piece of wood and I am there, lift a stone and you will find me there.’ (The Gospel of Thomas)

‘Spiritually Guided Life Force Energy’

Reiki is the use and manipulation of the electromagnetic energy of the world around us and within us, to heal the electromagnetic field of people, animals, places, things, and even the past.  It is  Christ Consciousness called ‘Rei’ that guides the life force ‘Holy Spirit,’ called Ki in the practice that The Soul Intention calls Reiki.   We use Reiki in the name of Jesus Christ, so that the client can release their electromagnetic fog and be free of the karmic burden that comes from sin.

Therefore, Reiki can be defined as spiritually guided life force energy.  This is a meaningful interpretation of the word Reiki.   Reiki ‘pure energy/Christ’ guides itself with its own wisdom ‘Sophia,’ and works together to heal the clients needs.  Reiki is unresponsive to the direction or ‘Ego’ of the practitioner.  It is not the practitioner who heals, but the Holy Spirit working through the practitioner in the name of Jesus Christ (aka Yeshua).

The Reiki Creed:

Just for today, I will have Faith.
Just for today, I will be Happy.
Just for today, I will do my work Honestly.
Just for today, I will give thanks for my many Blessings.
Just for today, I will be kind to my neighbor and every Living thing.
