Essential Oils can play a powerful role in emotional healing. They lead us by the hand as we courageously face our emotional issues. We all hold unresolved feeling of pain and hurt that long to be brought to the surface for transformation and healing, and essential oils can assist us during each stage of the healing process and prepare us for the next level of healing.
When we can forgive, either ourselves or others, it detaches us from the event that caused our trauma. This, in turn, allows us to move forward without the burden of working around the emotions we held on to.Creating a life that revolves around an emotion keeps us tied to that block in the energy flowing through our bodies. And when we have a block in one area, flow is increased to others, which keeps our bodies natural rhythm out of balance.
When we let go of guilt and blame and detach ourselves from the emotion of what we see, we begin to notice more detail, and that leads to more clarity. Forgiveness is not about releasing from theconsequences of actions, it is about letting go of pain and beginning the process of healing.
From a chemistry standpoint, forgiveness allows nutrients to reorganize how energy is connected to the cytosine molecular structure that regulates how our genes express.
