Aromatherapy + Essential Oil Healing: Myrrh

Aromatherapy and Essential Oils Complimentary Medicines

Aromatherapy and essential oils have numerous potent healing benefits documented in the ancient healing texts of the Ebers Papyrus from the medicinal healing priests of Imhotep (Father of Medicine, Khemet, Egypt) and Bast, goddess of Perfume (aromatherapy). Also throughout Greece, China, ancient India, and the Middle East. Today these healing modalities are packed with healing the senses (smell) and (touch) skin, the largest organ of the body, the integumentary organ. Essential Oils are concentrated hydrophobic liquid containing volatile aroma compounds from plants (Wikipedia). Whereas, Aromatherapy uses aromatic volatile oils like essential oils to vaporize a room or environment to engage the senses (smell) to induce healing effects on the body, mind, and spirit.

Origins

This ancient Near East African resin from the Commiphora myrrha or (Commiphora molmol) thorny-bush tree has been used as aromatherapy, incense, perfume, essential oil and healing medicine since Antiquity. Myrrh is found throughout Africa, the Indian Ocean Islands (Australia, Thailand, Indonesia, Sri Lanka, Somalia, Soma, et. al), Vietnam, India, and Arabia.

Wine and Waistbeads

Did you know Myrrh can be mixed with wine? This resin from the wound of the tree “bleeds” sap in the form of a gum. Myrrh gum is sold as incense in hues of amber, deep orange, musky topaz browns, and are worn in West Africa (Mali) by women as waistbeads.

Uses and Legend

The essential oil of myrrh is extracted from the resin. Both the crystal resin and essential oil can be burned to purify and is a smell of mysterious enlightenment drawing out negative spirits and cleansing auras much like sage in Native American saging ceremonies.  Legend says Myrrh is sacred to the goddess Ast (Isis) deriving from the dark mysteries of the Moon and mastery of the  Underworld.  Myrrh is used to purify, consecrate, and bless as a guardian against lower-level negative entities (energy). It helps to uplift, clear, redirect, enhance, anoint, break black magick, and bring peace and clarity of the body, mind, and spirit.

Words of Power – Adding mantras to your physical routine

Adding mantras to your physical routine

Mind over matter, thoughts create things, if you think you can or you cant you’re right, all these philosophical phrases are true. They can make the difference between winning or failure, attaining your goal or watching it drift up with the wind of your dreams. Truth is you create your reality, everything you have or don’t have is a result of your deepest perception and belief in your self.  What you say to your self (the internal dialogue) shapes your existence, what you attract, and your progress.

Adding mantras to your physical practice are key to helping you shape the life you desire and body you envision. They can help keep you focused, on track, and committed to your vision (goals, targets, and dreams).

Mantras in History

Mantras have long been used to reshape reality and create change. Known as “sacred sound or utterances” these syllable word groups are believed to bring forth spiritual and mental powers. Some of the oldest mantras were used by yogis and priests in the holy temples of ancient India (Indus Kush) predating Aryan invasion, however, the oldest known mantras are in Vedic Sanskrit.  Today these mantras aid meditation, increase abundance, and empower change to create the life you desire.

Healing Benefits of Mantras

Mantras can induce altered states of consciousness, trance, and reprogram the subconscious mind. The use of  “power words” in your spiritual practice and meditations empowers your heart and chakra centers, aligns and attunes higher frequencies to your sense of self, grounds and uplifts your spirit, and sets forth positive affirmations of change and dynamic transformation on a soul-level in the universe. Your words are vibrations that create change and take form into solid matter, experience, and outcomes.

Power words are like seeds that take root and form abundant trees full of healing fruit, seeds, nuts, berries, flowers, and medicinal bark. Your words can flourish, create, destroy, preserve, and activate. Mantras are perfect creative tools to mindfully place intention as a vehicle for your transformation.
