Supporting your Inner Life with Essential Oils and The Samaritan Archetype
In 1922, Albert Einstein had no money to tip a Tokyo bellboy. So instead he wrote on a piece of paper his theory of happiness, and in 2017 that piece of paper sold for $1.56 million. He scribbled down in German, “A calm and modest life brings more happiness than the pursuit of success combined with constant restlessness.” This can be a soul message for all of us, but could it really be this simple? Aren’t we all looking for peace nowadays? We seek fulfillment in events, things, books, Gurus, people, and being busy, when it’s the opposite that serves us better. How can we cultivate a calm mind and heart now? How can we be good Samaritans to our souls? We have lost the key to our own inner hearts. Our souls have become outcasts in our culture. Soul health and modest living are unheard of and often frowned upon in our loud social media influenced lifestyle.
One way we can be good Samaritans to our souls is by learning our soul’s way of speaking to us. We can learn to be that good kind helper to our own hearts by listening and nurturing our inner lives. This goes against everything our culture tells us. Picking up our hearts, brushing off long-held resentment wounds, and placing the balm of an diluted blend of essential oils on our hearts is an act of kindness, self-nurturing and a symbol of releasing unneeded suffering. This quick, simple, Samaritan archetypal act for ourselves begins to open doors to our inner world. We all can be our own good Samaritan – after all, the answers to our unrest lie inside our own hearts. Try your own blend or connect with us and we can guide you.
Here is a good Samaritan Essential Oil blend recipe just for you!
In 30 ml or one ounce of Sweet Almond Oil make a 2% dilution of
Ylang Ylang complete, Cananga odorata, 2 drops
Cistus (Rock Rose) Cistus ladaniferus, 3 drops
Orange, Sweet Essential Oil Citrus sinensis, 5 drops
Spikenard, Nardostachys jatamansi. Apply a few drops of this blend on your chest first thing in the morning or night. The aroma of this blend is soothing and calming.
Remember, if your anger and resentment need further “Samaritan assistance”, qualified counselors, spiritual directors, and health care providers can be sources of help. But in the meantime, why not seek to understand your soul’s messages to you and tangibly nurture your inner life with your own anointing essential oil blend? We are here to guide you in nurturing yourself as you help others in your life path. You can do this with aromatherapy and knowledge of the archetype patterns in your life. https://www.essentialoiltherapiesllc.com/
