APPLICATION: This blend can be diffused, diluted to create a massage oil, applied to the navel, chest, or temples.
AROMATIC CONSIDERATIONS: The aroma of Insight calms the nerves and grounds the emotions.
EMOTIONAL/SPIRITUAL/MENTAL ASPECTS: Insight is powerful in working with personalities that have been fragmented by the terror and confusion felt as the result of abuse. A child should be able to put their trust in the adults in their lives. When this trust is betrayed, there is often deep rifts in the psyche. Insight is often used in Inner Child work to reconnect fragmented parts of a personality or soul.
This blend is useful to release negative emotions from the past, whether the memories are conscious or not. The essential oils in this blend combine to clear patterns held in the memory of each cell. When these emotions clear, there is often an increase in intuition, organizational skills, mental faculties, and flexibility of thoughts and reactions.
PHYSICAL ASPECTS: Whenever layers of pain are scarred over in the mind and emotions, physical symptoms will manifest themselves in the body. They are a natural result of anger, fear, and confusion. A blend such as Insight can have a healing and renewing effect anywhere in the body.
It is rarely necessary for a person to relive, or even remember, terrible things that were done to them in the past in order for healing to occur. It is only when our actions have harmed another that we need to face them, figure out where our thinking went wrong, and take steps to change. Unfortunately, this is sometimes true of the actions and reactions we took as a result of abuse or mistreatment. In that situation, our own behavior needs remembrance and understanding in order for us to repent, but we do not need to “repent” of the things that were wrongly done to us. Someone else is willingly carrying that burden for us already.
