Scents and Soul

Scents and soul...As energy permeates through the universe the planets, stars, moon, rocks, animals, and even insects follow this ebb and flow of energy…. as well as your body.

Mysterious energy forces are mentioned in ancient Chinese beliefs – a life-force called chi.

Chi was thought to be a life energy that permeates throughout the universe, containing both yin (positive or male energy) and yang (negative or female energy).

An imbalance of chi can lead to ill health or discomfort in an environment. Healers, yogis, and acupuncturists are in agreement that the human body is a network of energy channels. EFT uses these channels.

The upper three chakras are called our spiritual centers. These three chakras help us to connect to the Universal Energy. The energy flow’s function is blessing, embracing and becoming.

In order to get energy flowing back to the upper chakras visualization and rhythmic breathing are used to draw the vital force toward the top of the head.

There are ways to increase and amplify this force. Earth energies can be tapped into by using crystal energy that spirals in quartz crystal or by using the vibratory qualities of particular scents.

Scents and soul...Archeological research has proven that man has long used scented plants. They have been used in medicines, balms for the body and mind, and in religious rituals.

Fragrances create deep yet evading feelings. We “feel” scents rather than rationally think about them.

In Exodus 30:34-37 the Lord tells Moses how to make incense. Then the Lord said to Moses, “Take fragrant spices – gum resin, onycha and galbanum – and pure frankincense, all in equal amounts, and make a fragrant blend of incense, the work of a perfumer. It is to be salted and pure and sacred. Grind some of it to powder and place it in front of the Testimony in the Tent of Meeting, where I will meet with you. It shall be most holy to you. Do not make any incense with this formula for yourselves; consider it holy to the Lord. Whoever makes any like it to enjoy its fragrance must be cut off from his people.”

As a symbol of prayer, incense is mentioned more than once in the New Testament of the Bible.

The Catholic Church has used incense in its rituals up to this day. Christian liturgy has used incense as a sign of purification since earliest times. The oldest surviving Ordo Romanus lists the prayers to be said at Mass. A deacon is required to carry a golden censer preceding the bishop as he enters the sanctuary, as a sign of purification of the church, before the liturgy begins.

Again as a sign of purification it is required when an altar is dedicated.

One other ancient use of incense in a religious setting is a suitable preparation for prayer.

Frankincense is an important scent used for incense. It’s called “holy smoke”. In ancient times it was regarded as a treasure. It’s been said to be the highest of the mind-elevating scents. It’s valued the same as gold. It was one of the gifts given to baby Jesus by the three Wise Men, as recorded in the Bible.

The burning of frankincense resins has a deep history throughout the world's many religions and has continued to be used for ceremonial purposes to this day.

Scent for Therapy

Aromatherapy is the use of aromatic oils extracted from many parts of plants and trees. They contain volatile oils that give the plants their characteristic odors, flavors, etc. Therapy is accomplished by adding the oil by drops to a carrier oil to dilute it. It’s then massaged into the skin or added to a bath, or inhaled using a diffuser.

In 1928, the French chemist, Rene-Maurice Gattefosse, did extensive research into essential oils and their healing qualities. This was the start of modern aromatherapy.
