This is something really fun and curious to do!
We ALL have an inner knowing, an inner wisdom – whether you feel particularly in touch with yours right now or not. And as I have learned through experience, it’s like a muscle… the more you exercise it, the sharper & stronger & clearer it becomes.
This super simple activity is designed to exercise your intuition making using of your essential oils. So keep your heart and mind open and just see what occurs…
Things you will need:
> A selection of highest quality essential oils and/or essential oil blends - at least half a dozen would be good, but you can layout as many as you like. (Note that if you're using oils that aren't the real McCoy, i.e. are synthetically or lower grade produced, then you will likely not get the same results.)
> A piece of paper & a pen or pencil
Here are the very special essential oils I use, trust, represent & support amazing women (& blokes) around the world in using:
How to go about it:
1 Set your oils in front of you in a random array - so that when you have your eyes closed you won't know which oil is which.
2 Close your eyes & pick up one oil bottle at random. DON'T OPEN YOUR EYES OR TAKE THE LID OF THE BOTTLE JUST YET.
3 With peeking, simply hold the bottle of oil and open and invite your senses to tell/show you about the particular oil you have chosen.
4 Write down whatever comes to you. This could happen in any manner of ways - e.g. a sense of a certain emotion or energy, visual pictures, smells, words inside your head, colours, etc. There is no "right" or "wrong" here. And no matter how clear or silly it might seem, write down everything that comes to you. Take your time.
5 WITHOUT OPENING YOUR EYES when you are ready, remove the lid and inhale the oil that you're holding in your hand. At this point, you may or may not recognise which oil it is from its aroma, but either way just spend a few more minutes writing down anything new that any of your sense bring to you.
6 Finally, open your eyes to see which essential oil or blend you are holding. You may then like to look up the emotional and physical properties for that particular oil. Take some time to reflect on what you wrote down about the oil or blend from your sensory perception.
