Curious about essential oils for protection, anointing, and reprogramming your beliefs? Listen to world renowned Aromatic Alchemist, Allison Stillman in this episode of the Breathe Love & Magic podcast.
I am a huge fan of essential oils and when I use them, I work with the emotional benefits that come from the plants, in the same way Bach Flower remedies work. My favorite right now is Green Mandarin which is all about pure potential – yeah baby!
The Sacred Art of Anointing
Let’s talk about Allison’s new book, The Sacred Art of Anointing.
I asked Allison to explain what anointing means. She said when you anoint something or someone, you take a consecrated oil or water and rub it on specific spots, making them sacred and divine.
For example, you might take a drop or two of lavender and anoint your heart or the crown of your head. Doing this, you are declaring that you are sacred and divine and putting that out to the universe. As you go out into the world, you carry that with you.
We’ve seen this in ancient cultures and Allison’s own recollection is of ancient Egypt where the priests and priestesses conducted elaborate anointing ceremonies. Many of our modern-day sacraments from religious traditions are based on these ancient rights.
As individuals, we lost the right to do this for ourselves because it became taboo during the inquisition with a deep fear of going against the church. This is true for anointing or using essential oils for protection.
Woman with the Alabaster Jar
It wasn’t into the 1920s that aromatherapy came back to the world. Allison was one of the first people to bring anointing back through a serendipitous and magical experience. She recalled her life as an Egyptian priestess doing these rights. I got chills!
This lead me to bring up the book Woman With the Alabaster Jar which traces the belief that Mary Magdalene and Jesus were married by looking at art through the ages.
The author talks about the Bible story where Mary anointed Jesus by rubbing expensive oils (spikenard) on his feet. This book claims this was an ancient marriage rite of the time, while others say Mary was preparing him for burial. That’s a good example of using essential oils for protection.
Raising Your Frequency with Essential Oils
Allison listed the holy oils including spikenard, frankincense and myrrh, sandalwood and Palo Santo. They have psychoactive properties inducing a visionary state which is why the Catholic and Greek churches burn the resin as people come in, encouraging a meditative state.
Placing the oils on the reflex points of your feet has an incredible effect on the body. There’s been research on a raising the frequency of the body’s organs by applying essential oils to the feet. So, that part of the story remains true.
In addition, the palms of your hands, the soles of your feet and the length of your spine all play a role of reading the energy and adding to your intuition. Allison pointed out the aura or electromagnetic field, is a vibratory field three feet out around our bodies.
Essential Oils and the Energy Field
In fact, the Hearthmath Institute measured the energy from the heart to eight feet outside the body! With this in mind, Allison Stillman has a friend who is skilled at seeing auras, so they did an experiment.
Allison smelled frankincense and her friend said she had never seen this happen before but she saw the color gold come into her energy field. The only other time she had seen this was when looking at pictures of Jesus and Buddha that also had gold in their auras (which still remains for those who have this gift of sight.)
Smelling essential oils and putting them on your body helps to close up any holes in your field. This is another example of using essential oils for protection.
Essential oils impact not only kill bacteria and viruses, but also work on an emotional and spiritual level. Using essential oils to consecrate your body every day is the fastest way Allison has ever encountered to awaken divinity.
She has plenty of experience as a healer including a sound therapist, massage, energy work, and a Reiki Master. Nothing is as powerful at bringing in divinity and knowing the truth of who you are as essential oils.
Oils Help You Stand in Your Power
Allison says absolutely! We are spiritual beings in a human body having a human experience purely to know ourselves in this way. In Neal Donald Walsh’s book Conversations with God, he talked about why we have suffering fear and pain in the world.
The reason for these negative experiences is that they provide contrast so you can value love, joy, unity, and harmony even more. Without the opposite expression, its hard appreciate the incredible state of love, unity, and oneness. Essential oils for protection keep you safe so you can lift your vibe.
Releasing Old Patterns with Essential Oils
Allison studied for years with Bob Proctor and Joe Dispenza. Bob’s work is about getting to the bottom of old belief systems. He suggests choosing a goal that is beyond what you think is possible and focus on it.
Doing this helps you come up with new ways to manifest that you wouldn’t be able to see otherwise. Oils are the fastest way to access the emotional and behavioral centers of the brain.
Also, the amygdala which stores long-term memory, is accessible quickly through the sense of smell. So, it came to her that if you could combine Proctor’s work with essential oils, you could clear programs so fast in people!
The Subconscious Mind
Humans are run by programs buried in the subconscious mind that go back to age five. That’s when you came up with beliefs to survive this world of suffering. Essential oils get into the brain and awaken that subconscious awareness.
Next, use an affirmation said in a very specific manner, plus aromatherapy to establish new memory in that amygdala. What a powerful combination to clear those programs very quickly and create new emotional and behavioral patterns. Sometimes essential oils are for protection, other times they help you release old patterns.
Essential Oils Produce Amazing Shifts
Allison had a good friend who wanted to buy her first house, but this seemed entirely out of reach for her. They did a session and she wanted to buy a home within one year. Together, they did deep work, created the affirmation and the oil for her. Just four months later, her friend sent an email saying she bought her home!
