It's been a wild first half of the year.
A totally unexpected, unforeseeable view of 2020 which, in my mind, started off as a grand plan to adjust our lenses and create 20/20 vision and clarity by harnessing the gifts within us. As I consider all that's happened, how amazing that it actually HAS been a half year of eye-opening, soul-wrenching events to adjust our lenses! Certainly not how I or anyone could have imagined.
The urgency and exclamation point underneath the Universe's "vision plan" thus far has been like a rapidly burning fire continually growing underneath our feet, in the pits of our stomachs creating much discomfort, or like a huge, swift kick in the tush. "GET CLEAR NOW!" it seems to be screaming. Some of us are feeling the burns and bruises....and some of us are healing or learning how to heal by first feeling the pain deeply. Others may be hiding or fighting for status quo, nonetheless feeling something.
I won't get into the details of 2020 events but to name some of the highlights: Yogi Bhajan (for the kundalini yoga community), Covid-19/Coronavirus, Amy Cooper/Christian Cooper, George Floyd, Black Lives Matter and, subsequently coming from all this, a glaring spotlight on the dark underbelly of America's history (of white superiority and greed) which has created the conditions for a people filled with trauma, conflict, and disconnect.
This isn't a statement piece; it is about essential oils.....and the stage is set to deeply focus on Vision. Let's get clear. This is about personal Vision and a deep understanding of who we are and what we stand for.
It is called The Oil of Clarity & Vision. And frankly, I was never a big fan of this oil because it is floral-y. It is interesting though how our tastes change and I'm finding this oil to be so soothing nowadays. Perhaps I really needed it, as the oil "....can assist during a healing crisis when a drastic change of perspective is required".
As I question where I am on the issues of today and how I would like to be active in the healing process of our humanity, Clary Sage will support me on this journey. Well-known for its hormonal balance support and relieving menstrual cramps, it is one of the most health-supportive oils. Here are some of its properties:
It's great for increasing blood circulation and soothing the nerves!! Spiritually, it engages my creative, sacral energy and stimulates intuition.
How to use: I like to dab a drop behind my ears and massage a drop on my feet along with Frankincense (to enhance the penetration/absorption into the skin) and a couple drops of carrier oil.
There are other ways to use this oil as well. How do you use it?
