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 Legends

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.

Finding Nature! Road Trip Amicalola Falls

In  June, I took an impromptu road trip through the state of Georgia. Unlike Virginia, I knew very little of the back roads, paths, rivers, creeks, state parks and landscapes Georgia has to offer. And i was in “need” of some form of Nature relief so I packed my trunk with what was initially a ‘day trip’ turned into a 3 day adventure from Augusta to the mountains of Amicalola Falls to the coastal marshes of Tybee Beach Savannah Georgia. I wanted to search the waters of Georgia and to feel out this land and its historical past. The past of my father’s ancestors and find more connection.

I was in my last week of my fitness program and surging full steam ahead.  Emotionally I was feeling drained from the mundane and needed a “Soul+filled” experience centered around Nature.  As a child, nature had always shared with me a glimpse into a kind of symbiosis – a deep healing thankful breath and whisper at the trunk of trees,  a hug or thankful smile I might offer for simply being in its presence,  extreme gratitude and love for each variety of species my eyes would discover.  Nature had taught me to meditate when I was just eight years old turning inward from a very highly emotional dysfunctional family environment I learned that inward breathing not only slowed my nervous system but awakened me to the wondrous world around me. Nature was my ally, teacher and church. And throughout my adult years, I would always find my way back to her /him when the modern world whirled in confusion and left me feeling anything but centered in peace.  So I put on my workout gear, packed my car, filled my gas tank and set out for the unknown.  A mini road trip into the mountains of Georgia was calling me and off I went.  GPS set for Amicalola Falls through Dawsonville, through Etowah country,  through Dahlonega country, in the Chattahoochee National Forest, through Cherokee Native American land. And with all the markers and talk of the Appalachian Trail I instinctively knew without having to google or search an internet keyword that some historical atrocities had taken place where I now stood.

I was later reminded I was in Cherokee and Yamasee indigenous land. Ive always been a ‘special’ child with ‘special’ vision you can call it bit psychic with much empath intuitive gifts.  As  a child I could tell you insights into the future, see events of past, present and future but as an adult these gifts became more like a burden and I closed them off to mere feelings and visions rather than visits or direct talk with the dead or other shamanic abilities. Perhaps this was in my own folly at not truly recognizing my own unique gifts and empowerment. Or that such “gifts” could in fact be used  to serve humanity and help others but as I was drawn into the norms of working society ideas of shamanism closed to day to day survival for my family.  And an age old tradition was closed off (for a time) by smaller bursts of these mystical ‘insights’ and flashes of ‘truth’ and visions and dreams that connected me to Indigenous tribes, communities and healers who in the Dream World showed me miraculous secrets of the world we choose to be blind to in our day to day mundane tasks.  But here I was being called by “spirit” once again to a place unknown to me in this lifetime to AmicalolaTumbling Waters” as the Cherokee called it. Where I later learned was also part of the Trail of Tears.  Dahlonega  the “Gold Rush” town in North Georgia was in fact a starting point for this push off, out and onward toward Oklahoma  where over 20,000 Chicksaw, Creek, Cherokee, Seminole, Choctaw, Muskogee and other tribes and Black and Brown people of color walked and perished between 1830 and 1850.

What I felt and saw were brown and black people (ancestors) traveling the most rugged terrain and extremes during very difficult oppressive times in America. These Native Americans and Free Blacks and escaped Slaves who were forced to leave their homelands for the unknown—those who made it and those who died along the way! In some ways, I  could feel their agony and others their resilience.  The deep lines of Americas historical extremes were strong in that national park once marked as  indigenous sacred land in a very different time. When I looked over the man made railing it was so steep that anything that would mistakenly trip would surely fall feets to its death. Only in movies like Indiana Jones or Romancing the Stone had I ever seen any type of terrain like this almost an amazonian type of depth with less dense forestry. Even in my native Guadeloupe rain forests and Soufrière mountains, I hadn’t (to date) come across land as steep in these Amicalola mountains 729-foot falls of the 829 – acre lands.   I was both enchanted and horrified simultaneously.

I kept saying silently ‘this land is sacred’ looking up at the healing waters and wanting (naturally) to enter these waters to cleanse or even baptize my over burdened spirit. The duality of hatred of skin, race and culture carried upon the backs of these Colored Trail of Tears were embraced with a kind of unconditional ever-flowing love of Mother Earth and all her children flourishing upon the very deaths of those warriors, victims and survivors. As I witnessed both tragedy of the past and beauty of the present butterflies came to play and dance while Bees extracted nectar from blossomed flowers — each partaking in the rhythmic exchange of life! Such immense beauty exuding beyond the historical darkness.  And what struck me most were these seemingly opposing forces melded together in the harmonic essence within the forest. What was once tragedy was blissfully flourishing. And in this pristine well groomed well guarded space I realized and saw this for myself with my own eyes, heart and soul.

It was a hot day when I arrived in the Falls and miles leading up to the park were confederate flags hanging from homes and shops that not only caught my attention but spooked me into an uneasy “i better get out of here” type of vibe.  Although the park had lodging, I felt vulnerable and almost like prey in territory  I was unfamiliar.  It saddened me and I inwardly smirked that this kind of energy was so prevalent in such a  once sacred site. Within my being I knew that Native and Indigenous peoples came to this Falls for healing and sacred ceremony where steep mountains celebrated with the mysteries of the waters and birthed a kind of life and rejuvenation- this was Healing waters that I needed to taste, to immerse my spirit, my body to heal my mind, my body and soul and yet there were signs and gates everywhere telling us we could not enter that in a way we were not truly welcome.  And  it seemed more like these  “nature” energies were being held hostage then being preserved or even free.  It saddened me that man was not able to self-govern himself or his behavior from destroying this land and being at peace or one with it and had to have such drastic measures to ensure its ecological survival. But surely if he could not value human life how could this kind of mind and spirit value plant life or water life or air life? When truly they and we were (are) all one web of life. It saddened me that I didnt feel welcome on land that was once maintained and guarded by other brown and dark people who looked like me and members of my family.  This is the legacy that is kept alive in America for which it is paying for today. Instead of true healing and holding shame and resolve for its brutal past, the entitlement of such savagery is upheld as a tradition of pride and place in society among the diverse people of this land and country. In a way this is a perfect July 4 article raising questions to past present and the future of where our country is heading. There are the young and so many others  who wish for this country to move forward and beyond the mental, political, physical, socio-economic, racial hatred of the past and yet the underlying legacy of this indebted slavery upon which this country was founded pops up all over the place all the time reminding you sometimes subliminally but too often in your face front and center to the very core and heart of your being. It is like the dark satan we were brainwashed into believing to be flaming his pit of fire in the depths of hellish moments of time when the real demonic force is truly everything and anything that opposes life, love, liberty and the pursuit of  happiness, growth of  responsible technology, trees and the equilibrium of bees!

Forbidden. (Although park signs stated no one was allowed off the trail. I had the urge to sit near the base of the waterfall, find a spot and just put my feet in the water and chill. Much like I had done for years in parks like Rock Creek Park (Washington, DC) and Oak Canyon (Shenandoah, Virginia). Do what I came there to do which was ‘meditate’ and ‘heal thy self’ . I was approached by many people of many races and all I could do was smile in thanks and deep gratitude.) June 2016. Photo. Daria Takharu.

In my love of Nature and love of Man, I truly pray (affirm) that we one day come together in respect for our survival, equality and equilibrium in this very delicate web of balance of our ecological systems, monetary systems, health and mental body systems, technology and spiritual systems. It may not be in my life time but I am hopeful that these cycles the ancients spoke and wrote of will come to pass and this new age will lift the debts and burdens of our ignorant past into an true age of enlightenment in which the all thrives in more harmonic states of being.

In Love, In Light, In Courage, In Freedom! (happy 4th of July) 😉

Uplift, Purify, Tone! Ancient Cedarwood Aromatherapy

IMG_7652-1.JPGCleanse, Empower and Relieve Muscles Aches from a Gruesome Workout!

Not only do Essential Oils feel good on the skin, they can be used potently in Aromatherapy and inhaled through the nasal passages. Aromatherapy is an ancient healing modality practiced in Antiquity such as Egypt, Africa, India, Tibet, the Mediterranean and throughout the Tribal Regions of North America. Cedar was considered by the Sumerians to be the symbol of “Power,” “Greatness,” and “Immortality.”

Cedar Wood Essential Oil

Cedar Wood Essential Oil

Goddesses like Bast, Isis (Ast), Sekhmet, Hetheru and Aphrodite  were known for their magical and healing use of aromatic scents to heal the body, mind and spirit. These Goddesses were the Queens of Nurture and  in tune with the essence and elements of Nature. They healed the sick, heard flowers bloom,  and brought about births and the wailing back to life and memory. Using their divine feminine intuition, and shaman like powers they were revered, celebrated, honored and respected as the embodiment of womanhood and deity. There is much we can learn from these world culture stories and myth. Their energies and boons (spiritual gifts) remain in our DNA and in the very fabric of this Earth and cosmos.

The use of oils and perfumes directly absorbed through the blood stream is a powerfully conscious way to heal, rejuvenate, maintain and strengthen the body’s immunity, mental clarity and sensuality and overall natural organic balance. By using a simple diffuser the essential oil can burn into a vapor by tea light candle in a ceramic sculpture. This method fills the room beautifully with any scent or combination you choose.

For the past few days, late nights especially I have blended Cedarwood EO with Tea Tree EO (my senses LOVE this Astringent) and a dash of Cinnamon EO!! ❤️
Note: Cinnamon Essential oil is powerful and can burn the skin! So add just a drop if mixing with other oils and carrier oils. I use Cinnamon mostly for household cleaning and spiritual clearing in prayer and rituals. I may also add Jasmine or Ylang Ylang to bring a lightness or floral air to my body and environment.

Cedarwood has been my favorite essential oil for over 20 years! It’s  safe and great for the skin, hair, in a spray bottle, or diffuser. It was known for its spiritual uses by Tibetan Monks in the Himalayas. It has a woodsy aroma that I add Jasmine oil floral scent. It can be used as an incense, perfume and massage oil.

MY COMING OUT, FINDING BALANCE, LISTENING TO YOUR BODY

WHERE HAS RIA BEEN?

You probably think I jumped off the face of the earth but I was  recovering from  a serious bout of Anemia and had to take a break from weight training lifting and exercise. It was awful! I had extreme guilt, shame and was in denial. For years I bragged about my almost perfect health and going Vegan was something I aspired to become to prove to myself and the world that it was ‘better’ more spiritual and optimal for health even in extreme fitness. What I was shown was something quite the contrary. I turned the shame and isolation into a time of deeper spiritual innerstanding of peer acceptance, self acceptance, food and nutrition and personal dietary needs to obtain balance, wellness and fitness.

whereisria_fitness_riasweetraw

BEAST MODE THEN WHAT?

whereisria_fitness_riasweetraw2It’s true when I’m into my fitness I go hard and had no idea that according to TCM (Traditional Chinese Medicine) some Spleen meridian issues (pathologies) causing Anemia and other heavy blood flow can be aggravated by intense and excessive exercise! My almost 2 hour workouts with heavy weights and cardio didnt seem to help my situation at all.
I was absolutely floored when my medical doctor insisted I have a blood transfusion (?) huh, is this that serious I thought and no I would not place some random persons blood into my system. I’ve suffered from Anemia for many years, especially as a vegetarian. This time being Vegan proved to be stressful on my body producing allergies I’ve never had like cashew and other fickle bouts of allergic reactions. This time my usual period of ‘cleansing’ felt more like a nightmare. I was literally sick and could not understand why.

FOODPICS_RIASWEETRAWFor over 20 years, being Vegetarian and Pescatarian  was my way of life, this time going back to Vegan proved too much for my body and my emotions.  It was as if I was being initiated at yet another level of what reality is, should be or can be. That ‘it’ (in my case ‘diet/nutrition’) was absolutely ‘factual’ on an individual intimate level that can not be judged or validated by anyone other than my self. And that true ‘enlightment’ would prove that all things are both light and dark having their sun and moon, good and bad, what was seen as medicine could in deed be poison if taken in excess and without a balanced approach.  Although, this all seemed very logical AND spiritual simultaneously I suffered with this resolution  and my actions emotionally and spiritually.

In my personal evolution, I no longer over emphasize or stress about my weight (well not that much) in fact I’ve pretty much given up the dogma I had about every little thing I eat or don’t eat.  I eat what I want (within reason) with no guilt or stress and ironically I weigh less than I did when I was on a strict diet! I have turned away from replacing ‘religious’ attitude and behavior with the “Raw Food Movement” or “Vegan” ideology. haha I can even laugh about it now. I was so obsessed!

But two months ago, I was really quite devastated when I was diagnosed with severe anemia I felt great guilt and bewilderment. I thought me being Vegan as the socially accepted eco-friendly super-conscious movement stamped me as spiritually acceptable and within the social guidelines of my peers and the gurus I worshiped.

Anything but VEGAN for me was unacceptable and yet my body was rejecting this way of eating and seeing it as an imbalance rather than balance! WTF! I was embarrassed and felt like a fraud for having this dis-ease, symptom, imbalance. The whole ordeal became  quite personal and intimate. In secret, I was in a kind of spiritual-emotional anguish and had a hard time admitting that I was somehow different from the pack. I had to find out that there is no cookie cutter way or answer for the “All” and that “Some” are just plain different requiring whatever the body, mind and spirit sought as balancing chemistry to properly function in her immediate environment. That environment has everything to do with food choices, that these variables and  adjustments should be carefully taken into consideration. There is no ‘right’ or ‘wrong’ stamp on my nutrition simply what works best for my constitution in the environment which I reside, the work I do,  my emotional space, home life, etc., is my ‘right’ way and path.

If I was residing in a warm tropical climate, my food choices would better be suited and reflect that temperate climate, amount of Sun, melanin chemistry and molecular food choices, just as certain American climates and geography warrant a varied array of food choices, herbs, seeds, roots, etc.  These variables seemed to propose very real and factual  variables in my health and in my final choices.

What I had preached and followed for so many years was leaving me exhausted, lifeless, debilitated, and imbalanced. What once felt rejuvenating, refreshing, and whole had none of the effects they once had on my constitution. I was a very different person at a very different time, place and space and needed very different variables to balance my life and produce the wellness I deserved.

PERSONAL JOURNEY TO BALANCE, COMING OUT! 

I am not ashamed that I eat small amounts of organic, free-range meat and poultry on occasion. My body seems to have adjusted to the chemistry and my anemic symptoms (Spleen meridian pathologies, according to TCM Traditional Chinese Medicine) have vanished. Of course other areas of my life have also healed in the process of me moving forward both on a psychological and emotional level as all things are connected fundamentally.

46BD_PICS_RIASWEETRAW

I embrace the many changes in my personal life and have left my past to it’s past forging ahead in a very newly rebirthed Body, Mind and Spirit! People are still amazed when I say I am 46 and I no longer hide the fact that my age is just a number that has produced wisdom and strength in this incarnation.

I am so ready to get back into the gym, train, finish my new certifications in Personal Training,  Fitness Nutrition (NASM) and Wellness Coaching (ACE) courses and get back into the best shape of my life! I really do love athletic BEAST MODE along with some dance, yoga and meditation!

Yoga for Beginners! Inspired by Janelle Monae’s “Yoga” & the Era of Madam CJ Walker

MADAMCJWALKER_THEFIRSTI am doing my best to introduce my daughter to the wonderful healing gifts of yoga! It’s a sacred movement that becomes a spiritual practice and heals the body, mind and spirit in the process.  She showed me Janelle Monae’s Yoga video last night and I could only chuckle. It was only two weeks ago I was showing her Villa Lewaro, the shack to mansion hair-care business legacy of  Madam CJ Walker (b.December 23, 1867) aka Sarah Breedlove from the cottonfields and washrooms aka The First Female American Millionaire”; the Mother of “I got my start by giving myself a start!”  All during the most terrorized decades of Jim Crow she and others like her prospered to achieve and give back to their community, providing employment, education, homes, beauty, culture and way to make it out of slavery consciousness. 

Kudos, fist pumps, Ase’s and more Love to Ms. Janelle Monae! Artists like these are needed for the consciousness of our children, to help shape their lies and perceptions of Self and their World. Let the rebirth begin…

 

Black Women, Yoga and Healing!

Motivation Mondays! Balancing Self in this Real World! Stay Focused and Manifest Your Goals!!! 

I have a ‘ton’ of articles I’ve written for this blog, was working a few last night before my Sun interrupted me with Tumblr and CNN live footage from Ferguson! I was overwhelmed feeling Ive been purposefully in my own little bubble, ignoring the realities of the very real problems we face in this country today. So many of us are finally awakening, and still more are coming to the realization that we are not separated but rather connected (kinnected) on this planet on so many public and global issues and crisis. The truth is we have all the solutions we need to resolve all of our current ‘problems’.  What seems frightening for me is to see that the social problems in our country just may be set off by incidents like this Ferguson. We never know how and when real change transpires, we are all witnessing it today and making choices from within our selves. Stay your course, know yourself, be sensitive to the truth and have courage to stand for what is right for the betterment of all.

My Training Weekend

Saturday, I had the Pleasure of Doing an Insane Abs Workout at Champion Fitness! There after, I had an impromptu Training Session with an elder who trained the “Guru Abs Trainer” and whom everyone calls “The Trainer’s Trainer”. I was assessed, challenged, evaluated to some degree, and trained to my outer limits! By 2pm I literally ate, showered and crawled into bed! The Guys and Gals over at Champion are true SuperHero Champions indeed! Much Love and Respect!
