Clarity is generally considered a state of mind. However, the heart, body and intuition (gut feeling) are also involved. Some techniques utilised in this endeavour include Meditation, Yoga, Tai Chi, Spiritual Healing, Reiki, Music, and other Creative pursuits. These activities all work towards quietening the constant chatter we often have going on in our heads, which allows space and time for clarity.
Personally I find for myself and my clients that there are certain Essential Oils that are beneficial in the pursuit of clarity.
According to Gabriel Mojay in her book ‘Aromatherapy for Healing the Spirit’, she notes that Frankincense Essential Oil is an ideal aid for meditation, contemplation, and prayer, ceasing mental chatter and stilling the mind. Facilitating a state of single pointed concentration, it allows the Spirit to soar. Frankincense is also reputed to be helpful to the nervous and respiratory systems, and is used in skin care.
I regularly use Frankincense Essential Oil to help those who wish to let go of those thoughts and behaviours that are of no more use to them. This in itself is very freeing and helps us to reach a state of clarity.
Another brilliant Essential Oil to help with the pursuit of clarity is Clary Sage. If you have ever read ‘The Complete Guide to Aromatherapy’ by Salvatore Battaglia you will have noticed that he referenced Gabriel Mojay’s book ‘Aromatherapy for Healing the Spirit’ noting that Clary Sage is able to uplift one’s spirit without ‘disconnecting’ one from reality. Battaglia continues with “the earthy quality of its herbaceous, musky sweetness reflects its ability to steady and calm the mind, while its gentle pungency enlivens the senses and restores clarity”.
Along with the use of these oils I find it useful to spend time becoming familiar with gut feelings and trusting in your intuition when you are making a decision in the pursuit of clarity.
And yes, along with qualifications as a Spiritual Healer, Hypnotherapist, Reiki Master, I am also a qualified Aromatherapist. I work with these PURE Essential Oils on a daily basis and currently have Clary Sage and Frankincense in stock if you would like to acquire them.
