Essential oils do not do our emotional work for us.
Essential oils help individuals take an honest look within themselves. They provide an environment conducive to healing, but they cannot do the work for us. It is a typical gardening error to pull weeds without removing their roots. This is especially true for rocky and rough soils. To guarantee that the entire plant is uprooted, we can add water to the soil, which enables the complete removal of the weed. Similarly, essential oils prepare our emotional soil to make it easier to eradicate weeds. However, they do not do weeding services for us. If we fail to pull our weeds, we have only exacerbated the situation by watering it. In contrast, when we combine essential oils with emotional work, we are rewarded for our efforts.
3. Releasing Limiting Beliefs
In contrast to emotions, which are transitory by nature, beliefs are permanent and firmly embedded in our mind. Beliefs are the framework we construct from the inferences we draw from our experiences. This worldview is the lens through which we view life. Our identity is defined by our opinions about ourselves, for better or worse. This has far-reaching implications for all of our behavior, mental processes, and emotional patterns. Everyone possesses both good and bad beliefs. However, negative or restricting ideas might cause us to experience the same problems repeatedly throughout our life. Repeated encounters enhance the emotional pathways connected with them. Essential oils aid in highlighting the emotional patterns of deeply held beliefs, allowing us to discover the limiting ideas, releasing the imprisoned energy and associated emotions, and replacing them with positive beliefs that serve our highest good.
4. Spiritual Awareness & Connection
All beings were created for a divine purpose. Healing requires the recognition of our spiritual essence and connection to our source. In this stage, understanding of the unique aim for us and the infinity of available love is of greatest importance. Our healing can be completed through the power of this love. This is the fourth of the 5 stages of healing and often one of the most difficult to complete.
5. Life’s Purpose
When we have experienced the four prerequisites for truly holistic healing, we are ready to realize our entire purpose and potential. This is the stage where we gain the clarity and confidence to follow our intended path.
Holistic natural medicine is gaining more and more popularity. And this is happening for two reasons. First of all, allopathic medicine, although it is developing more and more every year, proves its shortcomings in many situations. Secondly, the basic holistic approach, addressed to the roots of the problems, addressed to the individual as a whole body – mind – spirit, amazes every day with effective results.
Understanding these 5 stages of healing and the role of essential oils for each of them is necessary to understand the principles of holistic health.
