Meditation and Aromatherapy
Meditation is not sitting eyes closed in a lotus position, chanting OM or focusing to our breath. Nor it is running, exercising or being busy with an activity as many people say.
Rather, you are meditating whenever you deliberately change your state of consciousness, using only your mind, body or breath.
Deliberate: Meditation is deliberate because it is not happening by chance nor is it happening without a purpose. When we practice meditation, we are learning to invoke a change in our state of consciousness at will whenever we desire it to happen. We also train our brains to be able to absorb the experience without being overwhelmed. That's why meditation is a deliberate practice.
Change your state of consciousness: Everyone is aware of or has experienced at least 3 consciousness states: Waking, dreaming and sleeping. There is, of course, much more to explore in the realms of consciousness but these three states form the fundamentals of everyday experiences. When you change your state of consciousness, you may be doing something as simple as going from the waking state to the sleeping state. In addition to these spontaneous changes in consciousness, we can also use techniques that are known to create common types of changes in states of consciousness. It could be as simple as directing your attention to inwards or maybe as profound as a perception of communion with the cosmos. When you change your state of consciousness, you may become aware of things that were previously unseen or unheard. Your intuition and perception may become clearer and sharper. You may gain insight, wisdom or empathy. You may attain a state of inner bliss, outward calm or the capacity to heal from past hurts or traumas. All of our experiences in life are processed according to the specific qualities of our state of consciousness. So it is easy to see, how even a slight shift in our state can profoundly change our lives.
Using only your mind, body or breath: Meditation doesn't require any accessories, like sound, music, smells, drugs and anything else. All you need are the things you were born with, your mind, your body and your breath. You can only use your mind such as using a mantra or directing your attention towards loving kindness. You can also use your body to meditate such as doing yoga poses or you can use your breath to meditate such as paranayama. If you change your state of consciousness when you rely on a stimuli from outside yourself in order to do so, you are not really meditating because you haven't actually learnt to independently meditate. When we rely on these external stimuli, we never truly become independent meditators.
The methods that I cover in my retreats and sessions will give you the capacity to meditate anytime and any place which will enhance your experience when you are on your own.
Throughout my meditation journey, I also became a Reiki practitioner in 2003 and a Reiki master in 2008 and guided many others since then. While I was practicing meditation and Reiki, I have also become EFT practitioner, I-Ching practitioner, Feng Shui practitioner, breathing practitioner, meditation teacher and completed ACIM - A Course in Miracles, all of which enhanced my meditation practices.
Aromatherapy is a holistic healing treatment that uses natural plant extracts to promote health and well-being. It is also called essential oil therapy. Aromatherapy uses aromatic essential oils medicinally to improve the health of the body, mind, and spirit. It enhances both physical and emotional health. Aromatherapy works through the sense of smell and skin absorption.Each essential oil has an array of unique healing properties, uses, and effects. Combining essential oils to create a synergistic blend creates even more benefits. The essential benefits of aromatherapy are to manage pain, improve sleep quality, reduce stress, agitation, and anxiety, soothe sore joints, treat headaches and migraines, fight bacteria, virus, or fungus, improve digestion and boost immunity. Aromatherapy has the potential to treat many conditions, including asthma, insomnia,
fatigue, depression, inflammation, cancer, arthritis and many others.
I am a NAHA certified aromatherapist. I make use of aromatherapy not only in healing stress, anxieties, depression and health issues, but also in cosmetics and house cleaning.
Living - Healing - Wellbeing
In order to achieve wellbeing through meditation and aromatherapy in the lives of people I guide, my approach consists of four phases as inspiration, identification, execution and repetition. Through this cycle of phases, living and healing becomes a habit in the life of individuals.
First, the individual explores herself and her daily life experiences inspire her.
Then, the individual faces her healing needs and explores how to heal each exploration.
In the third phase, the individual executes her explorations and healing solutions in her daily life.
Finally, the individual gains the habit to heal herself whatever she experiences, whether it is an emotional, health, financial or career problem.
I use meditations, Reiki, aromatherapy, EFT and breathing techniques so that individuals can face and explore anything that lie beneath their fears, addictions, stress, anxiety, demotivation, despair, unhappiness, depression, intolerance and social impairment and so that they can discover and use their own healing technique.
