Did you know that out of our five senses, SMELL is the one most closely associated with emotion? Our olfactory system, or what we use to smell with, is linked directly into our limbic system, the center of our brain most associated with memory & emotion. So it stands to reason that one of the quickest ways to feel better, is through our sense of smell.
Smells can be a very individual thing, what one person considers to be a blissful aroma might make another person sick. (I, for instance, have always LOVED the smell of diesel fuel, because both my grandfather & my dad worked on the railroad, and some of happiest childhood memories involve trains.) There are however, some essential oils that tend to be associated for many people with happy, positive feelings.
Have you ever boycotted Christmas? Sick of the commercialism and other people's behavior? Did you find religion and pin pagan meanings to its origins?
A pastor who grew up in a large, traveling singing family had a sister who read The Two Babylons by Alexander Hyssop. He calls that “The Year of No Christmas.” She had read about ancient pagan rituals associated with Christmas and decided the whole family would be committing sacrilege by practicing it. I can relate to this experience – watch out if you ever read that book!
There are many reasons people become disillusioned with holidays. Here are just two: looking at your bank balance of $-19.02 coupled with crushing pressure to buy gifts. But, are there any reasons to unabashedly and joyfully embrace its essence? Is Christmas Spirit its own entity entirely detached from both consumerism and religion?
The late Dr. David Hawkins' work Power vs …
Dickens' A Christmas Carol is the story of all our lives. We all are Scrooge. We are all Tiny Tim. All of us are both selfish and lame in some areas. We are all victims like Bob Cratchit, and we are all as indignantly moralistic as Mrs. Cratchit refusing to toast Scrooge. The Ghost of Christmas Past haunts all of our lives; the Spirit of Christmases to come beckons us all to make the choices that will enhance both our own existence and that of others. (If we calibrate the energy level of Christmas, by the way, it becomes obvious that power resides within the human heart itself.) [emphasis added]
Christmas, or the Spirit of Christmas calibrated at 535, in the realm of unconditional Love. Perhaps it is because people consciously put aside ill will and decide to give and bless during this one time of the year. According to one author, the combined powers of “The Spirit of Christmas, Peace on Earth, Good Will Towards Men is a seriously high frequency coming in at 675 on Dr. David R. hawkins’ Map of Consciousness.” If that's true, that is an incredibly impressive display of the human spirit.
Hawkins also said:
Christmas is another kind of bonding, peace and goodwill towards all. …a high spiritual state. Hold Christmas in your heart all year, …it is a Christ-like attitude.
Interestingly, unlike other Dickens' works which made obvious Christian allegories, The Christmas Carol really was about the Spirit of Christmas. Ebenezer Scrooge had a spiritual awakening, but there weren't any direct references to Biblical accounts. Dickens brought that spirit back during tumultuous times in Victorian England and may be responsible for some of the traditions some people hold dear today every December.
As a former Christmas naysayer who now cherishes Christmas for the little ones and elderly in the family, I say, what would be wrong with more Christmas Spirit throughout the year?
It is wonderful to discover that essential oil frequencies are several times greater than frequencies of herbs and foods. For years, research has been conducted on the use of electrical energy to reverse disease. Scientists in the field of natural healing have believed there has to be a more natural way to increase the body’s electrical frequency. This led to the research and subsequent discovery of electrical frequencies in essential oils. Patients felt better emotionally when oils were diffused in their rooms. It seemed that, within seconds, these patients were more calm and less anxious with little exposure and inhalation. Certain oils acted within 1-3 minutes; others acted within seconds. It is fascinating to think that an oil applied to the bottom of the feet could travel to the head and take effect within one minute. The more results that have been seen, the more research has been initiated.
