The “Secret” Is To Just Keep BREATHING!
by Dr. Monica Bickerstaff, DHM
In a world where everything has been so chaotic of late, it's important to take a time out...
EXHALE and give thanks for the resiliency of YOUr spirit!
During times of stress, we can restore our spirits and rejuvenate our faith, and energies with the healing practice of aromatherapy, and by BREATHING!
As a doctor of holistic medicine with expertise as a certified clinical aromatherapist; I recommend all things “essential” (essential oils that is) to calm your nerves, ease your tension and re-balance your body temple.
Aromatherapy is both an art and a science. It is rooted in the healing practices of ancient
civilizations. Essential oils were used more than 5,000 years ago in Egypt, India and the Middle East. Inspired by the traditional medicines of these cultures, the healing science of aromatherapy employs fragrant plant/flower extracts for treatments. Essential oils work their physical, emotional and psychological wonders by interacting with the olfactory nerves, or entering through the skin; thus, affecting the limbic system in the brain. In these ways, they reach the bloodstream directly. Once they are absorbed, the oils enter the lymphatic and blood capillary systems, benefiting circulation as well as the sinuses and lungs.
So, when you feel that you've lost hope, when you're overwhelmed with anxiety or extreme emotion and when you can't remember what's on your "to do" list, or even where you left it last, be sure to remember...BREATHE!
In my practice, I practice Ujjayi Breath (breath of victory), using my custom blend Peace Of Mind; with clients. The ritual of Ujjayi Breathing will settle your nerves and focus your mind. This breath is restorative to both the sympathetic and parasympathetic nerves.
Ahhhh, rub your palms together and as you inhale the scent-suality of sandalwood, tangerine and vanilla; Peace Of Mind-- you should focus on the breath. Ujjayi breathing releases your Chakra meridians (energy centers) and when done properly, Ujjayi breathing should be both energizing and relaxing. The sound of Ujjayi is created by gently constricting the opening of the throat to create some resistance to the passage of air. Gently pulling the breath in on inhalation and gently pushing the breath out on exhalation against this resistance creates a well-modulated and soothing sound—something like the sound of ocean waves rolling in and out.
Don't be alarmed if you sound a little like Darth Vader when breathing Ujjayi. This means you are doing it right!
Aromatherapy can help you restore your inner peace, by combining Mindful Breathing with faith. When life totally spins out of control, you can remember to stop, INHALE and EXHALE...
literally smell the roses...your senses will thank you!
