First of all what is Intuition? In Wikipedia, Intuition is the ability to acquire knowledge without inference and / or the use of reason. The word 'intuition' comes from the Latin word 'intueri' which is usually translated as 'to look inside' or 'to contemplate' Intuition provides us with beliefs that we can not justify in every case. For this reason, it has been the subject of study in psychology, as well as a topic of interest in the supernatural. The “right brain” is often associated with intuitive processes such as aesthetic abilities. Some scientists have contended that intuition is associated with innovation in scientific discovery. Intuition is also a common subject of New Age writings.

When you are looking for tools to enable you to act from a strong insight or hunch point of view, my personal experience after many years in the healing field as an Aromatherapist is that your nose always knows. Working with your right brain by stimulating your limbic system via olfactory channel is so effortless. When you want to connect with your Intuition and receive messages from your higher self, there are three fundamental steps to follow. First, relax yourself. Second, ground yourself and finally third, receive your messages.

  • The relaxation process can be highly supported with your own sanctuary corner created at home. Your favorite altar makes you feel safe, secure and definitely more relaxed. Diffusing lavender and chamomile essential oils during this precious moment will give you a sense of lightness. Repeating a nice mantra that you have created for your own pleasure can also be very powerful, for example: “I am feeling at peace right now”.

  • The grounding process is guaranteed with an earthy-woodier aroma like vetiver. Just massage one drop under each foot to secure a peaceful grounding experience.

  • The receiving process can be activated with a more flowing aroma like ylang ylang. Because of its stimulating effect to blood circulation and your lymphatic system it gives you a euphoric kind of effect. Simply inhale deeply straight from the bottle.

Every time I use this combination of oils in my sanctuary ceremony, I make sure I have the crystal clear intentions of relaxation, grounding and receiving insights regarding a particular question I have for my higher self.

I enjoy adding a visualization of red long roots attaching me into mama earth to stay anchored. To make sure my mind does not wonder like a ” Chihuahua on the edge “, I imagine that my mind is a kite or a helium balloon attached to my head by a fine string. A gentle soothing wind moves my balloon back and forth and my mind is at peace. I also enjoy harp music and sea waves during this experience.

My intuitive personal energy signature keeps me in the now. I find that the best essential oil for attracting prosperity into my life is the oil of cinnamon. I just apply one drop of cinnamon on my credit card, priceless! Try it and receive abundance in the next few days in unexpected forms.

When I feel disconnected this simple three steps ceremony always helps me to come back into the now and receive many messages from my wonderful friend Madame Intuition.

Namaste and smell you later!
