Let go. Allow. Trust in the Will of the Whole.
This is one of my absolute favorite quotes in life. I hold nothing, and in doing so – or not doing so 😉 – I allow the things to come into my life that are for the best. What a great lesson.
Recently, I started working with a protocol to open my pineal gland based on the recommendations listed on the Fuller Life Website. The protocol recommends:
- A few drops of Cedarwood essential oil dropped onto the palms. I inhale the scent while meditating on the INTENTION of releasing that which no longer serves me. The site recommends that you not only drop the oil on your hand, but also to hold it about 6 inches above the hand when dropping in order to address any imbalances that are being carried in your aura.
- Inhale Frankincense while rubbing it into your throat chakra, your third eye chakra, and your crown chakra. After rubbing the Frankincense into your higher chakra areas, meditate a little bit on attracting the best things into your life that will serve your highest and greatest good.
- Follow up with Joy oil (from Young Living) on any areas that you feel lacking on in your life. If you are feeling sad or depressed, put Joy on your heart chakra. If you are not so confident, put it on your solar plexus chakra. If you need to feel more grounded and stable, put it onto your root/base chakra area.
This combination of oils should help you release the things that are no longer serving you: relationships, careers, thoughts, habits. It also helps you to bring new, better things into your life – those things that will serve your growth and better your life. Then, you address any areas that need extra loving attention.
Please note that, in my experience, the Joy is absolutely necessary in this combination. When you start releasing negativity and kind of detoxing your thoughts and life, it can stir up some anger, resentment and sadness. Before I added an uplifting scent to the end of the ritual, I had a couple of days of dealing with the emotional detox that this process can stir.
Interestingly enough, this ritual came to me in the knick of time to celebrate tonight’s powerful full moon in Scorpio and partial eclipse of the moon. Scorpio is all about transformation (and is my sun sign) – and the power of this full moon is one of releasing those things in our lives that we no longer need and increasing our personal power and attracting more affirming, positive, and healing situations into your life. Here is some more information I found at New Moon Manifesting.
The tarot cards that hint at this process of upheaval and transformation are The Tower or Life Experiences (in the Angel Tarot deck). I had this card come up in a one-card personal reading for myself the other day.
