Therapeutic Grade Essential Oils ? Why ?

XO~Carol Gay~XO

I was familiar with Essential oils growing up. My older sisters used them. I knew they smelled good, came from plants, and were all natural. While going to a home group for a season a friend ,that came, always smelled like pizza. She would bring her oils to group and pass them around. She was overcoming a muscle disease and was using a healing model called, 'Raindrop'. This was the application of several oils on the feet and along the spine. She received a Raindrop once a week for a year. After that she went through a season of going through emotional issues that were linked to her muscle disease. She has been free of the disease and all symptoms for over three years now. That was my introduction to the oils being use for healing and not just to make you smell or feel good. During this season the Lord was preparing me for more deliverance from fear. While praying during our group the lord was showing us that he wanted to set me free from this once and for all. Two friends and I made a date to get together outside of the group to pray about this. One friend was putting the oils on my feet and the other was counseling me and leading me in some Theophostics and asking me questions. It was during this time of prayer that I was delivered from a spirit of fear that I had all my life. It was attached to my physically heart. I became aware of this spirit during another deliverance session years prior. It was not the timing of the Lord to deal with it that back then. I learned a lot about the anointing of God's love and how to walk in his presence. He brought to my attention because I was raised without the presence of an earthly father that I was not trusting my heavenly father to protect me. This day I was set free from a generational spirit of fear. Then I began another part of the journey to walk this out daily. It was a good eight month battle after this time. I had to stand my ground and walk in Love. After the eight months I walked out even more deliverance from fear. I would get fear and anxiety just out of the blue and I would have to just release it to the Lord. I think that most of this anxiety was emotional baggage that was just coming out of my body, feelings of the past from living under a spirit of fear so long. Most of it was from the years before 18 when I came to the Lord and was filled with the Spirit. However 18 years of bottled up fear is a lot to release still. I also had to learn to walk in Love and the Lord really dealt with thought patterns and external triggers. This is when I started to get more interested in the use of oils. I began to use them as a constant companion.
My husband said, "You are getting addicted to those oils". Well there was a period of a few years when I really needed to have them close in the event I needed to release fear or anxiety. Once I was in Sam's Club and a spirit of fear just hit me and I ran, well left quickly, and went home. It was after this that I started keeping the oils in my pockets and purse. I also found that when I would eat bad that I was more prone to a spirit of fear and anxiety. It was my observation that sugar, white flour, conventional dairy and meats in my diet would set things off. It is not that if I ate any amount of these I would feel fear but if I were eating more of these types of food rather than raw fruits & veggies, wheat grass, salads and my healthy stuff. It has taken me years of pressing on to develop a lifestyle of discipline that keeps me in the spirit of love, power and a sound mind. For me it has been in overcoming my past emotional baggage, or releasing it that I have been able to overcome other things. When you get rid of past negative emotional energy you have more room for Love, Peace and JOY !
I find that I am not as dependent on the oils as I was during those few years of deliverance. I believe the oils helped me to walk out of the patterns of fear into Perfect Love. I find that there are seasons when you will use oils more than others, for emotional, physical or spiritual reasons. Therapeutic grade essential oils have a very tiny molecular structure enabling them to penetrate your skin and get right to your DNA on a cellular level. All those little receptors on your cells (that do all your body/mind communicating) get so distorted from past trauma, cultural conditioning, (which is a form of abuse) pharmaceutical abuse, wrong diet, sedentary lifestyle, generational issues, and so on. Therapeutic Essential Oils work their magic/majesty in a way that God alone has fashioned them to do. I do believe they are the true medicine. The leaves on the trees ARE for the healing of the nations. If you need healing have an elder anoint/rub/Masach (Hebrew word for anoint) with oils that you may be healed, or just order some from my Young Living website and learn to be an elder yourself and take responsibility for your own healing.
My friend invited me to the Young Living meeting here in town. I sat next to a lady who randomly told me that she had been using Essential Oils for over 20 years and have not found an oil on the market more pure. I did not ask her for that information she volunteered it. I tried other oils and to date I will not put any other on my body. When I get a flu or cold I even take these oils internally. I diffuse them next to my bed every night. I have found that at times a drop of oil will satisfy me as much as a meal or a snack. Because our sense of smell is wired right to our lymphatic system the emotional seat of the brain, it satisfies as if we were living in the Garden of Eden once again. Wow ! Especially when I do a fast, if I use the oils they are so exhilarating to the emotions from having more energy to feeling an euphoric peaceful state.
I do think that was part of the curse when we were kicked out of the garden, that our emotional state would suffer for lack of the essential oils and scents wafting around in there. It is very hard these days to have normal emotional releases and stay light as a feather and keep going on with the pressures of life. I have found that using Therapeutic Grade Essential Oils from Young Living I can stay free of emotional baggage and live a CARE FREE life !

Your 'Are' as you Perceive & Receive

I had a dream about ten years ago. I was being chased by leaders in my church and they were wearing Medical scrubs. That dream perplexed me for years, but I just set it on the back shelf in my mind and figured if God wanted me to know what it all meant in due time I would know. . .Well recently I was listening to a tape series called, "The Wisdom of Your Cells', by Bruce Lipton. It is an eight dvd series. During the first tape I remembered my dream and found the interpretation. Bruce was a medical doctor for sometime while continuing personal research on cells. He said that he found test results from test conducted over 100 years ago that prove that 'genes' do not control our lives. He began to do his own testing and found that it is rather our cell receptors that influence our lives and health. There are thousands of cell receptors on each cell. These receptors get 'tweaked' so to speak with all kinds of factors from media influence to diet, childhood trauma, cultural conditioning, and pharmaceutical drugs. Bruce also wrote a book titled, 'The Biology of Belief'. The conclusion is that the only thing that controls your life is your perception on reality. Our perception is distorted by a number of things. Someone will say, "Oh, I have asthma because my mother did. Well that might be the case but it is not because you genes tell you that you have asthma. You will have to get to the spiritual root of it and get rid of it that way. You may have something that is spiritual or emotionally passed down but it is nothing that can't be taken to the cross and dealt with if you will do so. The Bible says that the sins of our forefathers visit those up to the fourth generation of those who hated me.
Back to my dream. I learned in The Wisdom of Your cells about the history of how the practice of Allopathic Medicine along with Modern Science came to 'practice medicine' today. Bruce points out that medical practice along with most belief systems are based on 'Dogma' this meaning a belief that is not scientifically backed up. Let me insert a quote by Candace B. Pert, Ph.D. from her book, 'Molecules of Emotion'.
"If psychological contributions to physical health and disease are viewed with suspicion, the suggestion that the soul~~the literal translation of psyche~might matter, is considered downright absurd. For now we are getting into the mystical realm, where scientists have been officially forbidden to tread ever since the seventeenth century. It was then that Rene Descarte, the philosopher and founding father of Modern Medicine, was forced to make a turf deal with the Pope in order to get the human bodies he needed for dissection. Descartes agreed he wouldn't have anything to do with the soul, the mind, or the emotions~~those aspects of human experience were under the virtually exclusive jurisdiction of the church at the time~~if he could claim the physical realm as his own. Alas, this bargain set the tone and direction for Western science over the next two centuries, dividing human experience into two distinct and separate spheres that could never overlap, creating the unbalanced situation that is mainstream science as we know it today".
So, it has been said that if we consider the unseen part of our being to be relevant in the physical health of our bodies then we are 'witches' humm? Well at least these witches may live a free life. I know a few young girls who live in my neighborhood. They come over and visit with me sometimes. One is very perceptive about other people, at the same time very cautious of others, which is not a bad trait now a days. One day she was not feeling to well emotionally and I asked her what was wrong and spoke something to her that I don't recall, but just trying to encourage here. Later I heard from her friends that she thought I was a 'witch' because I knew so much about her. I took it as a complement that my prophetic gifts were active that day as I spoke into her life not even knowing it. The only grid that most people have for the 'unexplainable' is usually witchcraft, you know like all the Harry Potter's books and movies this generation is into. But what was it "back when", when people would come up with new revelation, ideas, concepts, perceptions, or supernatural power that flowed from their gifting and their relationship with God? Why did the known Church at that time burn so many of these 'witches' at the stake? Humm could it be control for power rooted in fear of losing that power?
Well this has been my story that I experienced a tormenting fear for as long as I could remember. When I was a very young girl I had anxiety and fear of many thing. I would sleep with about 20 stuffed animals all around my body at night to protect me. It has been my reality that as I have moved to Kansas City, the last eight years God has been delivering me into His Perfect Love and driving out ALL FEAR !!! This deliverance has occurred because I just so wanted to be free so I really have pressed into the Lord for this. He has lead me to learn about the use of therapeutic grade Essential oils to help unlock my emotional life and become free of things generational that have plagued my family even still to this day. It is not fun living in fear. But in all reality these fears were not even rational. My family watched a lot of Horror movies and murder mysteries. They would even be on in the house when I came home from school in the afternoon. The mind of a young child is very impressionistic and when your mind is exposed to a lot of stuff on tv through your eyes, which are the window to the soul, then your mind gets warped. Thank God for unwarping my mind and setting me on a straight course in reality. I had a fear of impending death. . just to name one incident. . . and during a time of fasting in my prayer time I was using some oils with my body charts from the book, "Releasing Emotional Patterns through the use of Essential Oils" when I had this incredible release. As soon as I put the oil of Joy on my face near my chin my soul exploded with Joy. I immediately jumped on my Rebounder mini trampoline and started singing, "I've got the Joy JOy JOy JOY down in my heart, down in my heart down in my heart, I've got the joy JOy JOy JOy down in my heart, down in my heart to STAY, and when I got to that line, 'Down in my heart to STAY' well it is like it was amplified a 1000 times and I knew that God had delivered me from something. I also felt a real release down in my lower abdomin area, kind of a shaky feeling. As I calmed down and was reflecting on the situation. He showed me that the fear of 'impending' death had left. I didn't even know that I had it. But I became so aware of it, and yes now that I thought about it at the most odd times I would think, " Wow! I could just die". He also showed me that it came in through watching Horror movies growing up. I NEVER like those movies. . it was a bondage in our family and is today still in the entertainment culture. I didn't even like taking a bath after Orca or sometimes even sitting on the toilet after seeing Jaws so many times. Now it wasn't all the time but when I was young and had just saw the movie I remember these incidents and they were just not rational. Now who would think a shark could come through the toilet? Well maybe a child that has seen more shark movies then been on a boat. Ok! think about it. We need to protect our children's innocent minds. The pure in heart shall see God ! I thank God for his deliverance. I hope to post more experiences I've had as they relate to my emotions, deliverance, healing and the use of Therapuetic Grade Essential Oils.
