Hey, Pretty Blossom!
I am here today to encourage you to BE A SKEPTIC! 🙂
There are so many people and companies out there trying to tell you want you want to hear. Many of them do this very well, but few go the distance when it comes to explaining WHY things work, from a science and fact based position.
The fact is that when it comes to scientific proof of the effectiveness of crystal healing, essential oils, herbs, energy work, chakras, psychic phenomena, aura reading, etc, there is NOT solid science out there that FULLY explains HOW and WHY these things work, and/or how they improve our health. I don’t tell you about Essential Oils so that you buy from Doterra, and because I know all of the science behind the chemical composition of different essential oils and how they work with the different systems in your body on a cellular and molecular level. I leave that to the Scientists and Medical Drs. I talk about essential oils because I have my own personal experience with them while working to constantly improve my own personal, emotional and mental health. I study about and know about the power of the mind, intention, how to balance our lives based on the philosophy of the chakras, and I know the power of using holistic tools for stress relief. Less Stress = A healthier and more balance mind body and spirit!
Have you noticed that I don’t get into how the Balance Essential Oil changes the composition of your blood cells? I see people talking about it, but I personally have not found enough scientific evidence to relay that theory to you. Simple pictures and someone saying that is does, just doesn’t cut it for me. This is not to say that I don’t believe it. Essential Oils do amazing things, but before I am going to tell that to someone else and present it as fact, I need more information. I hear about how carrying blood stones around with you can improve your blood pressure, but again, this is something should be left to modern medicine. There are MANY Essential Oil companies out there that offer a high quality product. It is up to you to look into each of them and decide which one feels right to you. For me, it is Doterra (I switched from using Young Living). For you, it may be Young Living, or Native American Naturals. Read about each and make sure that you feel good about the choice you make. 🙂
Back to the science, which is the theme for “Thinkie Thursday”….
It is IMPORTANT to look for the facts with things that are holistic, and that effect your health. Now, most things holistic fall into the realm of “Metaphysical Science“, which is what I have a degree in, and am working to obtain my PhD in… Metaphysical Science is the study of things BEYOND what science can currently (or fully) explain. The alternative therapies that I teach are BOTH scientific and spiritual in nature. They are NOT one or the other. There are things about healing crystals and the human energetic system that can be measured by very new and sensitive machinery, but there are NO clinical studies as of yet that back up those theories with scientific fact explaining how and why crystal healing works. This is a practice. An art form that has been EXPERIENCED and SHARED by ancient cultures, that we mix with rest, , mindful meditation, and for whatever reason, it helps us connect with our bodies, become present, relax, release stress, which naturally helps to improve our health, and so one. Holistic Healing is not an exact science. It is a personal journey. To be able to benefit from alternative therapies, you have to be willing to experience things for yourself and to come to your own conclusions of how they work for you and why, and honestly, I much prefer it that way. I will throw in some fascinating science geeky stuff here and there also, but if we only expand our mind as far as the science, we are missing out on what we don’t know but could discover. The exploration of Metaphysical Science is empowering and limitless. It is a journey that is spiritual just as much as it understanding the physical sciences.
Through our time together we are going to talk a lot about metaphysical things, but I will always encourage you to stay grounded. Look for the facts when and where you can. Do not be taken advantage of by marketing strategies and empty promises. Learn and ask questions! Do your homework. 🙂 If you go to an energy worker or tarot reader, or an aroma therapist, ask them about their philosophies and make sure that you are not sitting across the table from a crazy person… There are PLENTY of them out there! Haha!
Metaphysical Science and Holistic Healing is an AMAZING and MAGICAL realm of beauty, balance and health, but always ask questions so that you know can tell when what someone is saying to you is in line with your own philosophies, or not. Be picky! Become your own healer and seek out like minded people who also do their homework, respect your own goals and beliefs, who are 110% honest, and who care about your well being (not just about making a quick buck)!
I have a question!
What is something that you wish you had more information on? I am ALWAYS hunting for facts and reading books, taking information that resonates with me and leaving alone what doesn’t. Let’s explore some things that interest you! That is when the real journey begins! <3
