Using essential oils when meditating is awesome. The scent alone can help you get in that sacred space by relaxing the body and mind, and opening the third eye, heightening your spiritual senses. I love to apply a drop or two of essential oils on my third eye and over my heart. Here is a meditation I created, along with a blend called Celebration, to celebrate the Mama Ellie’s 19th reunion and the reuniting of the Petals of the Golden Rose. Feel free to use the meditation for your personal use and look for the Celebration blend in the Shop section of the website.

Love & Gratitude Meditation

chakra energyThe Heart Chakra is the place of Divine Love, the Divine Essence of life and the most powerful force in creation. The heart chakra is also known as the “heart of the mystic” and is the place where the journey to the Divine begins.

Jelaluddin Rumi, the 13th century mystic poet, wrote ~ “I am your lover, come to my side, I will open the gate to your love. Come settle with me, let us be neighbors to the stars. You have been hiding so long, endlessly drifting in the sea of my love. Even so, you have always been connected to me. Concealed, revealed, in the unknown, in the un-manifest. I am life itself. You have been a prisoner of a little pond, I am the ocean and its turbulent flood. Come merge with me, leave this world of ignorance. Be with me, I will open the gate to your love.”

Find a quite place to meditate. If you are meditating with essential oils, place a drop over your heart chakra, third eye and where ever you are guide to. To begin, focus on your breath and breath slowly in the life force of the Mother with each breath you take. Bring your awareness to your Heart Chakra, in the middle of your chest, between your breasts. Focus on the heart and the feeling of love until all emotions are still. When you feel calm and centered, imagine a glowing, radiant, emerald green energy, slowly spinning and rotating clockwise. Feel the heart area expanding, and filled with overwhelming, unconditional love and gratitude for life, for all life. In your mind’s eye, imagine a great circle of family, friends and all the people of earth, holding hands and sending love and gratitude to each other. Allow the love and gratitude to flow around the circle, through the hands and then radiating outwards to incorporate all of nature, all life forms, and our beautiful Mother Earth. Feel the Divine energy that resides within you become energized and stronger with each breath. Allow yourself to merge with the Divine Essence and let Spirit to take you where it will. Dwell in the place of Divine Love and Gratitude for as long as you want or need to. When you are ready to return, open your eyes slowly, and sit and reflection your experience. There is no need to close the Heart Chakra at this time. You may want to take time to journal your experience.
