Journey to Wholeness (XI)–I KNOW Crown Chakra

He IS in everything

He IS in everything

The Crown Chakra represents our spiritual connection to a higher power, understanding and comprehending our ability to commune with the Divine, to God. Its location is at the top of the head, slightly to the back.

When mastering the lower chakras and their vibrational aspects, we become aware that we’re spiritual beings living a human existence. With no spiritual base, imbalances can range from joining cultic groups for guidance to ego-mania.

God created us in His image, from His Divine nature. Like a magnet, we’re (super) naturally drawn to higher electromagnetic fields OR to the spiritual deficit: uninspired atheism!

This chakra corresponds to the pineal and pituitary gland, located directly beneath it.

Keep a journal

Keep a journal

You can open your Crown Chakra by dreaming. Focus on your life dreams. Write them down, and make a plan to achieve them.

The note “B” and the toning of “ē,” as in bee, balance the crown chakra.

The color amethyst is associated with The Crown Chakra. Amethyst, alexandrite, and diamonds are wonderful. (Diamonds remind us of our spiritual focus, enhance clarity of thought, and draw toxins from the physical body.)

The pineal gland is MAJOR in your life purpose. According to the Steadman’s Medical dictionary, the pineal gland is known as the “Epiphysis” gland. (Remind you of something?)

The American diet is full of pineal gland “calcifiers,” like carbonated beverages and fluoridated water. Avoid fluoridated water! Fluoride filters, distillers, and reverse-osmosis filters are available for removing fluoride from drinking water.

White and herbal teas may be better for you because black and green teas are “incredibly efficient at absorbing fluoride from the environment and then releasing it into your body, preventing proper iodine absorption.” Drink responsibly…organic teas, please.

Idaho Blue Spruce #3093 (5-ml at $37.83 retail or $28.75 member price) is another amazing Young Living Essential Oil! Not only does its potent oxygenating quality open the pineal gland that becomes calcified/blocked because of chemical and other toxins, it helps release emotional trauma.

Sacred Frankincense #3550 (5 ml at $55.59 retail, $42.29 member price) is the holy oil of the Middle East, with over 52 references in the Bible. It increases spiritual awareness and enhances communication with The Creator, as does Frankincense. Dan Keskey calls Frankincense “our divine nature activator.” https://www.myyl.com/4wholeness

Suggested application for both of these oils is at the top of the foot (between the first and 2nd toe) and/or at the middle of the forehead at the hair line.  These are body and brain pressure points.

I know this series has been a lot to take in for many of you. My desire is to shine a light on common misconceptions about spirituality and on what I believe is God’s original “medicine”–essential oils, specifically those formulated by Dr. Gary Young of Young Living.

I wish you ALL health, happiness, and harmony within your body and with each other. Please remember and appreciate the wonders of the earth that sustain us.

God bless your journey to wholeness!

In basic summary: “The Law of Pure Potentiality governs the seventh chakra. When your roots are receiving nourishment from the earth in the first chakra, your creative juices are flowing in the second, your intentions are empowered in the third, your heart is open and exchanging love with those around you in the fourth, you are spontaneously expressing your highest self in the fifth, you are in touch with your inner voice in the sixth, only then, does energy move into the crown chakra and you remember your essential nature as infinite and unbounded…you know yourself as a spiritual being temporarily localized to a body and mind.” ~Depok Chopra

Journey to Wholeness (X) I SEE–Third Eye/Forehead Chakra

Intuition is Wisdom’s child.

Remember the 1998 movie, “City of Angels?” Angel Seth took his new friend/past angel to the angel’s gathering place on the beach to watch the sunrise. With closed eyes, facing east, Seth asked him, “Do you hear it?” meaning the sun’s vibration or song. (I had read everything living has its own vibration, but that’s when I got it! I saw with my intuition. The eyes of my understanding were opened. An INsight.)

This week is the Medullar, Brow or, don’t close your mind (get it?), Third Eye Chakra. Frontally, it’s located just above and between the physical eyes. This chakra corresponds to the eyes and pituitary gland. In Christian teaching, it refers to the “eye” of meditation and reflection.

When open, you’re intuitive, imaginative, and decisive. You see your true self and actualize your life direction and life purpose.

If closed, there can be self-doubt, indecision, and distrust. Depression, sleep disorders, learning disabilities, thyroid imbalances, hormonal disorders, headaches, sinus and eye problems may develop.

The note “A” and the toning of “eh,” as in face, balance the Medullar Chakra.

For EXTRA vibrations and overtones, the same goes for sound healing using tuning forks. After striking the fork on your knee, hold it over the chakra for several seconds. Just because you don’t hear its sound after a few seconds doesn’t mean it’s not vibrating. For its full benefit, wait before striking it again.

The law of Cause and Effect govern this chakra. Listen to that still inner voice inside, guiding you to your full potential. Quiet the internal voices of other’s judgments, expectations, and “you should.” Identify the sound and desire of your own soul. Remember you’re a spark of the Divine!

To stoke the fire of your destiny, develop the practice of meditation. In our Western civilization, we forget that Jesus didn’t wear a clergy collar and He wasn’t Protestant or Catholic. He was a holy man from the Middle East, comfortable with its traditions. I believe His “prayers” were not petitioning God. He knew God was IN Him. I believe he spent quiet times listening and looking within.

Meditation isn’t a prayer meeting or worship session; nor is it petitioning for needs and wants. From our youth, we’re encouraged to explore, pursue, and conquer the outside world. As we mature, we realize the undiscovered country of our soul. The noise of the world can drown out the gentle whispers of your soul Identity.

“Meditate day and night….for then you will make your way prosperous, and then you will have good success.” (Joshua 1:8) Tune in to calm, and His direction.

tranquility

Tranquility

Star gaze, drink in a full moon, and camp under the heavens. Unite yourself with creation, that you may create.

Indigo and purple are associated with The Medullar Chakra. Wear indigo clothing and the gemstones Lapis Lazuli, deep Tanzanite, and Amethyst. (Amethyst calms the mind, enhances mental activity, and amplifies thought, increasing intuition.)

Eat organic blueberries, blackberries, and purple grapes. Drink R.W.KNUDSEN “Just Concord.” Grapes benefit the eyes, intestinal track, blood, and brain. They cleanse the liver and kidneys, and grapes can lift your spirits–an emotional and spiritual benefit.

Inspiration #3366 (5-ml at $79.28, retail) was used by the native people of North America, Arabia, and India to enhance meditation and spirituality. Diffuse for inspiration and to create a spiritual environment. Topically apply to the forehead and crown.

Diffused during the day, Dream Catcher #3330 (15-ml at $94.74 or $77.00 member price) can help meditation and help you visualize your dreams. It has also been used to keep bad dreams away. Topically, it can be applied to your forehead, ears, throat, eyebrows or neck. Let those positive dreams shine through! Diffused at night, Z-z-z-z…) https://www.myyl.com/4wholeness

Journey to Wholeness (VIII)–I LOVE-Heart Chakra

King David lived and ruled from his heart. “…a man after God’s own heart.” (I Samuel 13:14) I interpret this to say: David’s full-hearted, awareness of God’s heart led him. He listened to his heart’s intuition: its instruction. He kept the “eyes of his heart” (Eph. 1:18) open for understanding.

Howard Martin, co-author of The Heart Math Solution, a clinical research and educational program on emotional physiology and self-regulation, says their research has shown that the heart sends more signals to the brain than the brain sends to the heart. He says, “The longest journey we take is from our head to our heart.” (18 inches).

The Dorsal, Thoracic or Heart Chakra powers the soul/heart connection of relationships—the unifying energy of love and compassion to overcome alienation and division. This chakra is located between the breasts, in the center of the breastbone. Its location along the spinal column is the first thoracic vertebra between and below the shoulder blades. It relates to the thymus, heart, and circulation.

When the heart center is open, there is self-control and the ability to accept oneself. Love, compassion, and empathy are felt for others, as well as feelings of joy, inner peace, forgiveness, and trust. When blocked or closed, there can be a sense of separation from others; intimacy and commitment issues, misunderstandings, anger, distrust, and passivity may ensue.

Physical imbalances manifested can be heart, lung, and breathing disorders, breast cancer, high blood pressure, and immune system problems.

Kiss me

Kiss me

This will surprise many of you: the color green stimulates the heart. (Remember, red is associated with will-power, self-confidence, and courage.) So, go GREEN, as Kermit would say! It makes the earth happy, too.

An encouraging touch, pat, or hug is heart-centered. Do you know that a twenty-second hug releases the neurotransmitter Oxytocin, nature’s antidepressant? And, holding someone’s hand is, you know, special.

Volunteer at a nursery. Holding and feeding babies is healing for you both!!

If you’ve ever watched “Fantasia,” midway through is an introduction to the sound track. Each instrument note is illustrated with a vibration and a color. I can’t verify that the colors or vibrations illustrated are correct, though there ARE therapeutic benefits from each note for specific organs! Hmmm.

Vibration=Color=Chakra=Organ=Function

Does your body groan or sing?

We’re all familiar with the calming benefits of music therapy. More specifically, the note “F” and the intonation (toning) of “ah,” as in la, balance the heart chakra. Humming is similar. You begin with this vowel sound and finish with your mouth closed. Naturally, the “m-m-m” sound is produced. (Does “Amen” ring a bell?)

In the book, Proof of Heaven, documenting his out-of-body experience from brain death, Dr. Eben Alexander testifies of hearing melodies and an “OM” sound filling, penetrating, and permeating the Universe. This sound is believed to be universal for healing. And, you can hum-m-m-m anywhere!

The Law of Giving and Taking governs the heart chakra. Love takes many forms as we progress through life: parent to child, grown child to lover and/or spouse, and grown child/parent to child again. We give love to another, and they receive the love that’s given. Just as your physical heart receives blood, then oxygenates it and pumps it back out to your body, your emotional heart stays healthy by receiving and giving love.

Do your desire remembering your heart songs, your joy? My joy is walking with you into your transformation! Email, text, or message me for your life upgrade. Until, Affirm: “I love Me. I am love. I forgive. I am forgiveness.”

When shut down to receive or give love, diffusing Young Living’s Essential Oil Joy #3372 (15 ml at $54.93 OR $41.75 member price) promotes self-love and feelings of being loved. It can also be rubbed on the heart and on the heart chakra.

Diffused, applied over the heart or on the wrists, YL’s Acceptance #3303 (5 ml at $52.30 or $39.75 member price) promotes feelings of acceptance for self and others, helping to relieve the urge to push people away.

And, when applied over the heart, Aroma Life #3306 (15 ml at $62.83 or $47.75 member price) has been found to help the cardiovascular, lymphatic, and circulatory systems stay well.  https://www.myyl.com/4wholeness

Journey to Wholeness-VII “Solar Plexus Chakra (Personal Power-I WILL)”

During WWII, Eleanor Roosevelt suggested, “Do one scary thing a day.” By “scary,” she didn’t mean playing chicken with an oncoming car. She was suggesting learning something new—a language, a sport, a musical instrument, or practice something you’ve learned and haven’t utilized. It doesn’t have to be difficult or dangerous, just different. Challenging yourself to overcome fears increases your self-confidence, self-worth, and personal power. I mentioned 3 of my fears in the chapter, “Facing Fears,” of my first book Views From My Chariot…. http://booklocker.com/books/6235.html

The Lumbar or Solar Plexus Chakra represents personal power and will. When open, self-confidence, self-esteem, and self-control are actualized. Located in the upper abdomen in the stomach area, when it’s closed, digestive problems may occur (constipation, ulcers, parasites, colitis). Nervousness, feelings of powerlessness, and a victim mentality may distort feelings of worthiness.

The Law of Intention and Desire governs this chakra. Be conscious and aware of your goals.

The Road Not Taken

The Road…Taken

“If you do not change direction, you may end up where you are going.” ~Lao Tzu

Can you give your full attention and map out your direction to an unspecified goal or desire? Make clear your intention (or you may be surprised by their fruit), then nourish its seeds for them to manifest.

Mental exercises and positive affirmations can reverse negative momentum.  Florence Scovel SHINN’s book, Your Word Is Your Wand, is resplendent with affirmations for success.

Read self-help and informative books to stimulate this energy, like my Views From My Chariot  http://booklocker.com/books/6235.html and HOW TO BE THE BEST YOU  http://booklocker.com/books/6811.htm .

Enroll in a class you desire to take. Dance or take out the ol’ hula hoop!

It’s time for a “You say w-h-a-t?!” Remember Superman’s hands-on-hips stance and Wonder Woman’s twirl with extended arms, then hands-on-hips? They’re power positions. They portray strength and tell the body to produce testosterone. Girl Scout’s honor!

With shoulders back, position your feet about shoulder width apart (just sitting up straight with fists on hips works if you’re in a wheelchair), place closed fists on your hips, and say: “I AM STRONG. I AM CONFIDENT. I AM VICTORIOUS.” These are empowering affirmations.

The musical note “E” can open this energy center. Wind chimes tuned to E are delightful do-it-yourselfers.

Since yellow is associated with this chakra, stroll in the sunshine, invest in a yellow sweater, socks, or citrine ring. Add bananas, yellow peppers, yellow lentils, yellow squash, corn, and chamomile tea to your diet.

Use yellow essential oils, such as revitalizing and uplifting Lemon, #3578 ($14.80 for 15-ml). Lemon is researched to quell nerves, digestive problems, and gives a lift to emotions. Honk if you love happy! I start each morning with a cleansing couple of drops in my glass of water. https://www.myyl.com/4wholeness

Journey to Wholeness VI: Sacral Chakra (I Feel)

Oprah talks about life as a class. I’ve recognized its share of tests. Whatever your assignment in life, don’t sweep anger, disappointment, and depression under the rug of denial. The energy it takes to fuel anger and unforgiveness wreaks havoc on our bodies, is emotionally destructive, and opens us up to spiritual confusion. (Did you know that anger affects your liver? http://www.greekmedicine.net/hygiene/Emotions_and_Organs.html )

The Creative or Sacral Chakra connects us to our sensing abilities, issues accepting others and new experiences, our sexuality, vitality, and creativity. ALL about our right to feel!

Artist from memory (Tom Hale)

When this chakra is open: we’re social, compatible, have the ability for intimacy, enjoy a sense of well-being, abundance, and creativity. It’s energy fuels the creative force that enables you as an artist, builder, chef, crafter, organizer, speaker, writer, etc. It empowers you to create a life of love and abundance. Each day, you co-create your life anew. When closed: imbalances may be impotency, frigidity, urinary tract problems, allergies, lower back issues, depression, alcohol and drug abuse, and eating disorders.

Jumper cables to help energy flow from the Sacral Chakra are water aerobics, aromatic baths, massage, or a “Raindrop Technique” by a Certified Raindrop Technique Specialist (CRTS). After one of these, I feel relaxed, yet energized.

The musical note “D” and decrees of “I listen to my gut feelings. I feel my feelings. I love my feelings. I am faith, hope, and love expressed.” help stimulate sacral energy.

Orange represents the Sacral Chakra. I LOVE orange! I wear it, use it in accent colors, and eat lots of carrots, pumpkins, sweet potatoes, spaghetti squash, oranges, and salmon.

Using Young Living’s Orange Essential oil #3602 ($14.14 for 15ml) for aromatic hot baths provides emotional support, as well as support to the digestive and immune systems. Orange EO can be added as a food enhancement, to water for natural flavoring, as for hot “tea.” Yum!

Young Living’s Essential Oil Trauma Life #6350 ($64.47, or $49 member price, for 5ml retail) is an oil blend that D. Gary Young, the founder of Young Living, created at Steven Seagal’s request for his work in hospital trauma centers. It can cleanse and release emotional trauma from accidents, assault, abuse, loved one’s death, etc. It may relieve anger, fatigue, and stresses that compromise the immune system. https://www.myyl.com/4wholeness

(Due to the fact that one essential oil contains hundreds of biochemicals, and that each person’s body chemistry is different, one essential oil can be used in many situations. And, because of their “strong bioactive constituents,” some oils should not be used on babies, children, or pets.)

How are you progressing on your journey? I’d love to hear your experiences.

Journey to Wholeness (V) I WILL–Root Chakra

“There are two ways to be fooled. One is to believe what isn’t true; the other is to refuse to believe what is true.” –Soren Kierkegaard

This week is the Root or Coccygeal Chakra, located at the base of the spine or coccyx. It is connected to our physical self with survival (self-preservation and instincts) and security issues of relationships, finances, and food.

When the Root Chakra is open, we possess confidence, a sense of belonging, and the ability to stand up for ourselves. We demonstrate “backbone.” If closed or imbalanced, body issues—colds, fatigue, anemia, lower back pains, etc., isolation, depression, and constipation (physically and financially)–may manifest.

Activities relating to the physical world prime this Chakra. Jogging, gardening, exercise (and restful sleep), Yoga and Pilates, involvements with sports, and dancing help.

music and mindThe note “C,” and the utterance (toning) of “uh” as in bug, help balance and bring healing to this chakra, as does humming. Sound healing can also be achieved using tuning forks. After striking the fork on your knee, hold it over the chakra for several seconds. Just because you don’t hear its sound after a couple of seconds doesn’t mean it’s not vibrating. Wait before striking it again.

The color associated to the Root Chakra is red: red clothing, red room color, red gemstones (ruby, garnet, red jasper, etc.), red food and drink: red apples, cherries, pomegranates, beets, and their juices (KNUDSEN is an organic brand that doesn’t add sugars). And, you can eat red meat. Ar-r-r!  Season with Saffron. The hot spices of cayenne and Tabasco sauce will certainly plug you in to N-ER-G!

The “Golden Rule” or Karma governs this energy center. (Just in case you missed it…  http://conversationswithcynthia.com/2013/03/15/be-aware-of-karma-bang-bang-duck/ )

Use your body as a “choice determining instrument.” (Depok Chopra) Its energy will inform you of the likelihood of your choice’s ability to meet your safety need or increase the threat. Listen to your body talk.

The single oil, Sandalwood #3509 (15ml $14.80), has the umbrella effect of safety and security under it branches. To help move forward confidently, diffuse Into The Future #3369 ($34.54 for 5ml retail or $26.25 member https://www.myyl.com/4wholeness), or “put in bathwater, apply over the heart, on wrists, neck, as a compress, and dilute with V-6 Oil for full- body massage.” (Reference Guide for Essential Oils-Connie and Alan Higley)

Though oils work differently on different people, by dropping one drop on each chakra (starting on the Root Chakra and working upward), diffusing into the air, or inhaling directly, Harmony #3351 ($91.78 retail, $69.75 member price https://www.myyl.com/4wholeness) opens the energy flow and balances ALL the electrical fields, and promotes physical and emotional wellness, among other benefits. It’s the best bang-for-your-buck.

Each week, I will progress up to the next chakra, one by one, to the Sacral, Solar Plexus, etc.

Journey to Wholeness-“Are Chakras ‘New Age?'”

I’ve received some questions about Chakras, so before jumping in this week, I’m quoting from David Stewart’s article, “Are Chakras ‘New Age?’” (He’s a PhD who authored Healing Oils of The Bible.):

“Chakras are not ‘New Age.’ They are Old Age being rediscovered. They are mentioned in both the Old and New Testaments of the Bible. The Jews even have a symbolic representation for the seven Chakras in their Menorah of seven candles, the center one representing the heart chakra.

The first thing to understand is that we all possess an electromagnetic field in which our physical bodies are immersed. Even the medical and biological professions acknowledge that human beings have, not only a physical body of flesh and fluids, but also a subtle electromagnetic field upon which their physical body is superimposed.

Physicians measure your electromagnetic (EM) field to detect problems with your heart and brain by means of EKGs (Electrocardiograms) and EEGs (Electroencephalograms), but they don’t understand, nor utilize, the connections of our EM bodies to our physical bodies in a way to provide pathways to healing. They don’t understand that physical maladies, conditions, and sicknesses usually show up as irregularities in our EM field before they manifest physically. They are unaware of the connection between our minds and feelings to our electromagnetic field and how the condition of the EM Field affects our physical well-being.

Chakras are electromagnetic centers along the spine of our EM fields. They are the dynamic, functional organs of our EM body, which is a template that causes our physical bodies to materialize and manifest as it does. It is also through the EM Field that our physical bodies are energized and are enabled to maintain a healthy state directly from God’s consciousness.

The Bible says, in both Old and New Testaments, “Man shall not live by bread, alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God.” (Deut. 8:3 and Matt. 4:4) The phrase, “By every word…” is in reference to God’s constant and continuous vibrational energy that emanates from Him constantly, which permeates the universe omnipresently, and which maintains us as living, conscious beings. If God’s constant attention on his created worlds flickered, even for one second, the universe and everything in it, including us, would vanish. (Psalm 121:3-4) It is that subtle EM field, a living spark of Gods consciousness, that ignites the life of a new human being at conception, that provides the pattern for the union of a sperm and an egg from a man and a woman to assemble into a complete body, molecule by molecule, cell by cell, into a completely ordered physical form. Without the electromagnetic blueprint enshrouding the developing fetus in the womb, the dividing cells would not know into which organs to differentiate and arrange themselves to form a complete, functional living body. Without the electromagnetic body, we would have no physical body.

When we die from this physical form, we become aware of our EM body, which is a body of light and energy.

Our bodies of light are usually not seen by us when we are living in the physical plane encased in flesh, but our etheric body becomes quite visible to us when we discard our material frame at death. The principal functional organs of your etheric body are the seven “chakras,” as they are called in Sanskrit in India. But the word, “chakra” in Sanskrit simply means “wheel.” This is appropriate since the chakras are all circular in appearance and contain geometric shapes and colors in their detail that could be likened to petals of a flower, spokes of a wheel, or points of a star. I prefer to call them “electromagnetic centers,” which are to our heavenly body what the various ganglionic centers are to our physical body. They are intelligent switching, coordinating, and routing centers for our electromagnetic (EM) bodies and perform functions that keep our physical bodies functioning in contact with God’s vital life force. Chakras are simply a part of our electromagnetic physiology.

We all have chakras or we wouldn’t be alive. To be fearful of the word chakra, or to be afraid to explore what they are and how they are a part of every human being, is like being afraid of your navel or your toe nails. They are essential features of your energetic anatomy.

Everyone has a set of seven chakras, be they Christian, Muslim, Jew, Buddhist, Hindu, Atheist, or whatever. Some religious systems recognize them and understand their spiritual implications and some don’t. But they are still there for everyone. The more you know and understand what they really are, the closer you can draw to God, whose essence is spirit. For example, in countries where the Eastern Orthodox Christian Church is prevalent, the chairs in the alter area of the church are narrow and have armrests that are high. When visiting one of these churches in Romania a few years ago, I was told that the high arm rests are for the priests to rest their elbows so they can close off their ears with their thumbs, shutting off physical outside sounds, in order to more easily hear the sounds of the chakras and commune with the Holy Spirit. They call it ‘sound meditation.’ Your electromagnetic field is simply a part of your human physiology.

Many people can see the energy bodies around others. Perhaps you have seen them yourself and weren’t sure what you were witnessing. Many can also hear the sounds made by the chakras from their own bodies (which I do).

Just as you can hear the sounds of your physical organs like your heart beating, your lungs breathing, or your digestive tract pushing through its contents, so sensitive people can hear the sounds of their astral bodies working.” ~David Stewart, PhD

Journey to Wholeness: Background

If this is your first visit to “Conversations With Cynthia,” please check out last week’s introductory article for this series.

http://conversationswithcynthia.com/2014/01/03/journey-to-wholeness-introduction/

 Concerning the Chakras: The Chakras are the body’s energy centers located along the spine. These electromagnetic centers provide functions keeping our physical bodies alive.

Because they are Divinely sourced, some call our electromagnetic body our “spiritual body,” or “astral body.” The way I see it, they are whirling electromagnetic vapors from God’s life-giving breath resident within. In Truth, You are God’s address. HE IS resident within You.

Frequency

Envision the movement of a small firenado. In comparison, when our chakras are open, their flowing funnel of electromagnetic energy moves in a vortex, sparking physical, mental, and emotional health. Although there are more, seven are generally illustrated and discussed.

The first—Root Chakra—is located at the base of the spine and represents our foundation and feeling grounded; the second—Sacral Chakra—is in the lower abdomen, representing connection, with others and life experiences; the third—Solar Plexus Chakra—is in the upper abdomen, representative of confidence and feeling in-control of our life; the fourth—Heart Chakra, in the center of the chest above the heart, represents our ability to give and receive love; the fifth—Throat Chakra, at the throat, represents our ability to communicate; the sixth—Brow Chakra, on the forehead between the eyes, represents our ability to focus on the bigger picture; and the seventh—Crown Chakra, on the top center of the head, represents our ability to be connected spiritually.

Please understand, that when I use the word “health,” it’s not only physical. I quote from Mary Kurus’ article, “Physical, Emotional, Mental, and Spiritual Health.”

“It is only by dealing with each part of the whole within the whole, that we can have vital and energetic health. All organs, systems, thoughts, emotions, have their own specific energy or vibration.  Each organ vibrates at an energy specific to it alone.  Each piece of food or drink that we consume has its own vibration.  Each emotion has its own vibration.  Therefore what we feel, what we think, what we speak, eat and drink, have direct effect on our health.” (I discuss this in Part Two: As A Man Thinketh of my book, HOW TO BE THE BEST YOU, http://booklocker.com/books/6811.html )

You’ve read that canned food has no vibration. That’s because there’s no life left in it. This is why I bring into the light the importance of understanding our whole, in order to BE whole!

Regarding essential oils: Any time I talk about using essential oils, I will only recommend Young Living’s (YL)! Why do I only use their oils? It is the only company with a “Seed to Seal” guarantee.

First, YL owns their own farms, globally. They monitor every aspect of how the oils are produced, from what goes into the soil to how it is bottled! They use organic seeds, the soil is nurtured with enzymes and organic fertilizers, watered with spring water, and weeded by hand. They harvest (flower, stem, leaves, root, bark, and/or resin) at the optimal time of day/season, and distill at low temperatures for the correct amount of time to get the primary benefits.

I know what I am using is 100% pure essential oil. I know what I use can be ingested, inhaled, or applied topically without harm to my body or others around me.

If you’re new to natural living, you may be wondering why I use essential oils? I’ve been into alternative medicine and ‘organic’ since my early twenties. The miraculous aspect of essential oils is their molecules are so tiny they penetrate past your skin, into your blood stream, through the walls of your cells, and are in every organ of your body in twenty minutes. When you inhale an essential oil, those same ultra-tiny molecules enter your lungs and brain and do the same thing! And, essential oils are 50-80% more powerful than herbs!

For other companies, any toxin in the oil from the farming and distillation process will also be inside that little bottle. Even if it says “Organic” on the label, the FDA “guidelines” for organic is only 3 drops of an essential oil per bottle! The mixture can be chemicals, preservatives, and perfumes. You have no idea if it was distilled at the right temperature or for the correct amount of time to be used for its healthful benefits. If the bottle says “DO NOT EAT. DO NOT INGEST” on it, do not put in on your body either! Read your labels! https://www.youngliving.org/4Wholeness

Next week, full throttle!!

Journey to Wholeness-Introduction

I’ve reigned from my chariot for 37 years (40 at this edit). It’s not a record, but it’s up there. In my Memoir, Views From My Chariot http://booklocker.com/books/6235.html , I use what I’ve learned to encourage, educate, and inspire others in their walk with lots of humor, hope, and a section of howtos.

My follow-up book, HOW TO BE THE BEST YOU http://booklocker.com/books/6811.html, is a creative, doable, howto be the best you, strewn with leads to discover, or recapture, your life’s purpose with passion and power to coddiwomple to your Bestdom. I finish with some tongue-in-cheek farcical facts, food fun, and playful puns.

In my “Color Me Red, Orange, and Yellow” chapter, I merely skimmed the surface of color’s influence on and importance to our emotional, mental, physical, and spiritual wholeness. In my “Journey to Wholeness” series, I will expound on these color’s influence of and importance to our true power system– our body’s energy centers or Chakras. I include how sound is therapeutic and offer alternative healing tips with Young Living EOs. http://conversationswithcynthia.com/the-essentials-2/ I will also add a few of my life-upgrade coaching self-help tools for more self-empowerment..

If you’re thinking chakras sound “New Age,” in TRUTH, our energy center’s colors originated from “The Old Man” – Sam Eddy. God liked them so much, He displayed their ordered colors in His kiss of promise: the rainbow!

For clarity, I reiterate how I live my life and what I profess: I’m a conservative Christian with unconventional experiences with God; God with a capital “G.” I believe in the eternal existence of I Am (before anything was), Who IMAGINEERED and SPOKE into creation the expanse of the universes and us–“who live and move and have our BEing” (Acts 17:28). We are His Inspir-a-tion (“inspire” breathe into; “-tion” action or process of doing something), housed in a physical body–His pulsing well-spring of Life.

For awhile now, I’ve been involved with Young Living’s Essential oils and their benefits to my emotional, physical, and spiritual wellness, even for my cats. Thus said, I’m an investigative novice in body energy. I do know, ALL our life experiences are imprinted in our physical body systems and shout to us with attention-getting signs and dis-ease. Dis-ease, and those “buttons” we believe others push, are emotional memories knocking on the door of our consciousness. Awaiting our love and gratitude, they faithfully signal until we realize (see with real eyes) their message to transform our life. When all is well, awareness, health, wholeness, and vitality flow.

If your life purpose, direction, and vitality have waned or wearied, this series on empowerment is for you! It’s an invigorating B12 shot of health, hope, and wholeness!

(Normally, I keep my articles around 500-words, an easy-read. My second and third, the basis for my “Journey to Wholeness” series, will be longer.)

Until next week..
