Frankincense | The Oil of Truth

In kundalini we greet each other with the phrase Sat Nam. This mantra is loosely translated to I am Truth or Truth is My name. It is a reminder that everything is within us, that our value is infinite, that we are divine. Frankincense is a perfect oil for kundalini as it supports us in living our truth and letting go of lower vibration thoughts. It helps us to connect with divine love and enhances meditation. It helps to reveal our truth and supports us in connecting with our Self. In the morning before a yoga practice, to apply a few drops into a diffuser , inhale and the aroma will enhance experience and atmosphere.

Clary Sage | The Oil of Clarity & Vision

Through the practice of yoga we move our bodies, vibrate mantra, open our voices and meditate so as to create a more easeful flow of kundalini energy through the spine. The practice helps us to remove blocks and stagnation, which is where Clary Sage can be a great support. This oil assists with spiritual clarity, intuition and opening creative channels. It can be used to assist in connecting with the spiritual world and to visualise new possibilities. Clary Sage can be applied to the brow point, behind the ears or diffused. The favourite ways to use this oil is in the bath with Himalayan or epsom salts.

Exploring new and different ways to connect with our physical, emotional and energetic bodies can be fun and enjoyable. Thank you to Dharma Temple for this resource.

You are here for a purpose, you are here to make an impact, honour yourself by following your hopes, happiness and fulfilment for just today. You have countless things to be grateful for, hold the intention of gratitude to be kind to yourself and every living thing. What you vibrate out you will receive back. Negative intentions have negative effects, focus upon kindness and positiveness; with kindness will flow a mirroring positivity into your day. “Asanas of Yoga can ease and alleviate anxiety with at best the easy pose being the most meditative and relaxing”   Anxiety can lead to shallow breathing, rapid breath and thus anxiety elevation.
