I was laughing inside when I read my email on Sunday that the free oil this month was BREATHE! How absolutely fitting because here I go with Chapter 1!
SINS OF THE FATHERS
Before I get into my own trauma I want to share with you: I do NOT blame my parents. They did the best they could with what they did have. They didn’t have resources and amazing things like Christopher West teaching Theology of the Body. Because well honestly Saint Pope John Paul II’s Wednesday teachings were barely taking place. And they were being sucked into the lie of the sexual revolution. And as many good wonderful Catholics, they were taught to suppress, ignore, and hide your sexual desires. After all good Catholics, good Christians, didn’t think about our sexual health. Thus, HOW could sexual health, non-the-less true sexual understanding of how beautifully wonderfully made we are, even be understood!
Then you compound it with their own traumas, wounds, distortions, and missing the mark of what Eros and our sexuality is really all about, it was a recipe for disaster. But I am not here to tell their story. It is not mine to tell. Yet their story did have an impact on my life. Therefore sharing this part is important to understand because their story does matter. Stories they hadn’t even shared with me until I was much older. Now I do believe there is a time and a place in sharing our stories with our children. I also believe there is a matter of the extent of the information. But there is a problem when we don’t share our journey with our children. We think if we don’t talk about it, well it won’t affect or impact another person, but it does.
A baby in the womb hears, feels, senses EVERYTHING! Our spirits are connected. So my mind may not have known what my father was struggling with but my spirit knew. It impacted me. My mom may have thought she was shielding me from the ugliness of how evil had touched her in a profound way by not sharing it. But my spirit new and it impacted me.
Again I say, because my parents didn’t have the equipment of TOB (Theology of the Body) to help them remember how beautifully wonderfully made they were, they chose to believe the lies from the enemy that they were ugly, they should hide in shame, they should NEVER speak about their sins, their wounds, their experiences to their children because that will cause sin within them. And that is exactly how the enemy likes it. He likes our hurts, pains, and sin to be in the dark. Therefore when we don’t communicate (communion), we divide. Think of Adam and Eve.
Now let’s take a journey with an oil blend to help you on your own healing and hope journey of sexual abuse, trauma, and/or past choices of sin.
BLEND: Patchouli, Eucalyptus, Lemon
Patchouli is the oil of physicality. It reminds us to become fully present in our physical body. It aims to connect our spirit with our body, to appreciate our body. We can’t get more disconnected with our spirit and our body than through sexual trauma and sin. If anything we have a raging battle within us to not connect because when we connect we will hurt, we will sin.
Eucalyptus is the oil of wellness. This oil encourages us to be responsible for our health. This means our spiritual health as well. Do you ever find yourself feeling a shortness of breath or a tightening in your chest when you have a flashback of a trauma? Do you find the same sensation when you think of all the missed mark choices you made concerning your sexual health? Those are promptings of your spirit to stop hiding from your sexual health and start healing. To seek out the hope and promise Christ gave us.
Lemon is the oil of Focus. The only way we can truly heal is to be mentally present. Lemon strengthens us to calm our fears of not feeling good enough. It will cleanse your negative talk of feeling tainted and dirty.
Two great ways to use this blend is topically or aromatically. You can just use the diffuser alone for inhalation, but when you use them topically as I am going to share, you will experience them in both ways: topically and aromatically.
Place one drop of each in your palm with some fractionated coconut oil. Rub together cup your hands together, bring to your nose and inhale a deep breath. Experience the scents together. Feel them enter into your cells, your mind, and your spirit. Do this 3 times. I always like putting the remainder of the oils on the bottom of my feet and on any body part I feel is holding onto negative emotions that day. Usually I know this by what body part I feel drawn to rub the oils on. Examples would be my adrenals, my heart, my thyroid and even my breasts.
Let’s end this chapter with prayer:
Heavenly Father…what trauma or past sexual choice have I made that I need to bring to the light, that I need to become fully present into my body and spirit to bring about true healing. Help me to be responsible with my health and cleanse me of all my negative talk. Help me to have the courage to visit with my parents and ask them about their sexual past if I don’t know anything about it. The more I bring my stuff to the light and encourage them to bring their stuff to the light, the more I will defeat the enemy.
Thank you Lord for being there always for me, for sending me your Son to remind me how beautifully wonderfully made I am. Thank you for the Holy Spirit’s constant prompting and guiding me on this journey.
I end with asking my guardian angel to continue to be by my side, for Saint Michael to continue to protect me from the snares of the enemy, and for our most precious blessed Mother to wrap me in her mantle to make me invisible to the enemy. In Jesus’ most precious body and blood I am strengthened and set free each and every day…..AMEN!
