Protection & Empowerment

Conifer oils have been traditionally used by the North American Indians symbolically to represent the umbrella they create in protecting the earth and bringing energy in from the universe.  At night, the animals in the wild lie under a tree for the protection, recharging, and rejuvenation the trees bring to them.


For a feeling of protection and empowerment, dilute 2 drops each of Spruce, Idaho Balsam Fir, Cedarwood, & Ylang Ylang essential oils with 32 drops or ½ ounce of V-6 or Jojoba Oil. Apply to Solar Plexus, Brain Stem, or behind the Ears.  Or apply Sacred Mountain to the vitaflex points of foot/feet corresponding to these areas.

Neutralizing Negative Energy
Negative energy is constantly bombarding our world as well as our personal lives.  Sometimes it comes in the form of something as a seemingly insidious comment by an unthoughtful person to something as devastating as financial ruin.  Some days your life is going great and than all of a sudden a series of bad days ensue.  Where is all this negative energy coming from and how do we protect ourselves from it.

Now I'm not one to give in to paranoia, but I do know the feeling of walking into a room and feeling calm and relaxed for some reason.  Then there's other times that I walk into a new place that makes me feel like I just have to get out of there fast...like I'm feeling somewhat weird or out of place.

Sometimes people, things, or events can be so exhausting that we just want to rid ourselves of so much of this negative energy. If you are in that place at the moment or if you are going to be confronting challenging times (meeting with a boss who has it in for you, or a relative that makes you want to scream...) here is a suggestion:

Close your eyes momentarily and ask yourself:  "How have I allowed a person, a thing, or an event to control me emotionally?  In what ways am I permitting these negative forces to agitate me, frustrate me, anger me, disappoint me...?  How am I benefiting by allowing this to continue?  What can I do at this very moment to change this?"

For this exercise, the answer is not as important as the question.  In fact, do not even try to answer the questions.  Or if you do, allow yourself to give as many answers to the questions, but do not attach yourself to any one answer.  In other words, don't finish the assignment today, teach yourself the virtue of patience and allow the answer to come when it comes.

In the meantime, apply 2-4 drops of White Angelica to shoulders, along spine, on crown of head, on wrists, behind ears, base of neck, or foot VitaFlex points.
