FEARS are JUSTIFIED! 6 Raging FEARS To Remove with Pure Oils
It’s TIME! Fight your justified fears with the energy of undiluted oils manufactured FOR THE PURPOSE OF HEALING. James Niederland, a fearless leader of my Young Living EO team, explains that essential oils give us restorative, healthy energy, which all humans need right now. This is because:
- Essential oils are natural – These precious oils are a gift from nature. Pure and potent. It’s such a refreshing change from adulterated and highly produced products we see everywhere, every day. (Read some of the history of oils.)
- Essential oils support wellness – Because they’re natural and derived from the essence of plants, essential oils are composed of powerful valuable life-sustaining, health-supporting constituents.
My favorite oils for fighting fear personas are frankincense for spiritual grounding, citrus oils (orange, lemon, lime, bergamot) for boosting physical cleansing and therefore energy, and vetiver, Roman chamomile and lavender for relaxing my mind to actually stop fear-mongering and sleep soundly.
Fight Fears and Powers That Be
There are so many benefits and so many applications for pure oils. The cool thing is that using oils on yourself changes your life, literally. Maybe you’ve heard that changing yourself is the quickest way to change what’s going on around you.
Well, what’s good for the self is good for the collective. My ubuntu requires it (I am because WE are). I facilitate self-change on the regular by renewing my body for specific action, day and night.
Every morning I commune with God, give myself time to read scripture, listen to healing music, and anoint myself with action-inspiring essential oils and attars. I drink my lemon or lime water and then walk, exercise, or dance to jog my energy. I add orange and cinnamon bark to teas and coffee.
Then I work at playing and being creative (writing, video creation).
Every evening, I reverse the process somewhat. I document what I’m grateful for, relax my shoulder muscles using White Angelica or Surrender oil blend,* and consciously belly breathe to bend my action energy. I then bow in peace to my Creator as my body-mind transitions to slumber.
(Did you know women take longer to go to sleep than men? I believe it’s the nature of the womb to work overtime, and this article gives a more scientific basis for the difference.)
Recent Rage IS Justified
Over many years I have literally felt the defeat of the fears of judgment, handling large sums of money, and not measuring up to an imagined ideal. These fears began to shrink and then dissolved into thin air. I am not the same person I was 15 years ago, much less 25. Immersing myself in the oils are at least 75% of the reason why, by the grace of God!
In fact, my habit of using oils and energy daily has always been intentional. I am resisting, 1) the systemic police and state assault on innocent people, and 2) the horrific modern-day lynch-mob mentality condoned by American culture, by commission or omission.
As an African descendant in the U.S., I fight the powers that be by using holistic techniques to maintain my physical body and mental and spiritual health.
The booklet, Removing Post-Traumatic Slave Syndrome Using Essential Oils, co-written with Shakira Abdul Ali, addresses these issues, as Personal and Community Stressors, in more detail. It’s available here.
IF YOU FIND YOURSELF MANAGING FEAR as a heightened, justified sense of outrage, CONVERT IT INTO HEALING ENERGY USING ESSENTIAL OILS.
Support Your Righteous Indignation and Build Immunity and Health
First of all, you’ve got apprecia-love the role of scent in personal transformation. The olfactory or smelling system channels scents to the brain’s limbic system and amygdala gland, where emotional memories are stored.
According to 6th edition of the Essential Oils Desk Reference, “Because the limbic system is directly connected to those parts of the brain that control heart rate, blood pressure, memory, stress levels, and hormones balance, essential oils can have profound physiological and psychological effects.”
I get sideways looks when I open a new bottle of oil and rotate the open bottle in front of my stomach, chest, face and over my head. If you know chakras, you know I’m introducing the oil to these spheres of energy before putting it on my body.
The aura is real, and essential oils interact with the aura as your entire being “smells” the new scent. Please keep this in mind as you try any new oil. Waves of energy are unseen usually, yet we know they surround us and can have strong effects. Their electromagnetic frequencies can be chaotic (fluorescent lighting) or harmonic (oils) and are addressed in this post.
Defeat Fears with These Oils
AGITATION. Caused by a weakened nervous system, lack of sleep, and frustration; agitation often means a congested liver or over-stimulated nervous system. Use single oils of lavender, roman chamomile, vetiver, ocotea, valerian, Idaho balsam fir, myrrh, frankincense, melissa, helichrysum and marjoram. Inhale 1 drop deeply and diffuse a combination of two to four oils for an hour to see if this releases the agitated feeling.
ANGER. The inability to face the most uncomfortable reality in your life will make you lash out to those closest to you in fits of rage. Or, you will appear to be angry for no reason, because you fear how doing so will change who you are or your current circumstances. Inhale 1 drop of the the single oils of Idaho blue spruce, bergamot, cedarwood, frankincense, lavender, myrrh, orange, rose, Roman chamomile, ylang ylang, bay laurel, and pine. These may also be diffused for one hour every two hours until calm replaces the anger.
CONFUSION. The usual level of clarity is absent. Decision-making ability is reduced and feeling disoriented is common. This fear mask offers procrastination as an out. Oils that support clear thinking are peppermint, lemon, rosemary, basil, frankincense and cardamon. Drop 2 drops of oil into your palms, rotate to activate the oil, then smell deeply for several seconds. Keep away from the eyes, especially peppermint. You can also diffuse for a half hour every 4-6 hours or as needed. Always dilute with vegetable oil if unsure. Use the same oil in case an essential oil gets into your eyes.
Stay Angry & Fearful, But YOU Lose
DEPRESSION/GRIEF. James Baldwin said being angry much of the time is typical for Black Americans, and a sign of sanity. But what if you’re in a permanent chasm and cannot come out? Fears of life after a job loss or heartbreak can mimic the feeling of sorrow and grief.
A morning and evening drop of the single oils of lemon, lavender, Roman chamomile, melissa, jasmine, frankincense, peppermint, ylang ylang, rosemary and cedarwood can be helpful in improving mood over time. You can diffuse a combination of these for 20 minutes up to 3x a day. You must use pure oils with no added ingredients.
OBSESSION/PANIC/EMOTIONAL TRAUMA. These are grouped because you cannot DIGEST life and you are in “freeze” or “overdrive” mode. Rebalance can be supported using frankincense, blue spruce, balsam fir, lemon, German chamomile, rose, galbanum, lavender, valerian and vetiver. Inhale 1-2 of these as needed, as deeply and as often as it seems necessary.
TENSION/STRESS. These may express as a severe migraine, and mask the fear of being or trusting yourself. You resist what’s going on in your head or externally, and create a needed time-out to deflect the challenge you’re facing. Instead, inhale 1-2 drops or diffuse the following oils for a half hour every 4-6 hours: valerian, cardamom, tangerine, jasmine, palmarosa, mastrante, geranium, frankincense, peppermint, lavender, Roman chamomile.
Bible Oils Were the First Medicine
If you don’t read the Bible, you may not recognize the consistent appearance of biblical aromatics on these lists. The scripture mentions cedar, cinnamon, fir, galbanum, frankincense, and myrrh and many others. Read about David Stewart’s book on the Bible’s healing oils here.
“Are any of you sick? You should call for the elders of the church to come and pray over you, anointing you with oil in the name of the Lord..” –James 5:14 NLT
