Healing Emotions with Essential Oils
Essential oils play a powerful role in emotional healing. They support us as we courageously look at our emotional issues. We all have unresolved feelings that need to be addressed. Feelings that come up again and again are indicators of unmet needs and past trauma that want our attention.
According to the reference guide called Emotions and Essential Oils, essential oils support healing in 5 stages. They strengthen us in each stage and prepare us for the next level of healing.
The Five Stages are:
1. Essential oils assist in healing the physical body
2. Essential oils assist in healing the heart
3. Essential oils assist in releasing limiting beliefs
4. Essential oils increase spiritual awareness and connection
5. Essential oils inspire the fulfillment of our life’s purpose
“Essential oils raise the vibration of the physical body. As the body lives in higher vibrations, lower energies (such as suppressed emotions) become unbearable. These feelings want to release. 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 do not do our emotional work for us. Essential oils assist individuals in taking an honest look within. They foster the right environment for healing, but they do not do the work for us.”
“You may be wondering, “How do I begin my emotional work?” We propose that individuals begin the emotional work with a few introductory practices. We suggest meditation, journaling and personal inventory to facilitate the healing process.”
