In the Still of the Night

by Dreama Vance

A ritual, as opposed to a habit or routine, is something done with intention and for me it holds a sense of reverence. Therein lies the power of ritual.

This is one of my favorite ways to use Young Living essential oils. They are such beautiful gifts from the essence of Creation itself. To be conscious of this every time you open one of these tiny bottles of pure essential oils brings you into the present moment. If you are conscious of what you are holding in your hand, it will center you and bring you fully present into the here and now.

By holding an intention, the oils will magnify this vibrationally. This is why you want to be conscious and aware of what you are thinking and your emotional intent when you use these oils.

I use Young Living essential oils throughout my day. I always start and end my day with them. They are such a pleasure to use and bring me such joy. If you don’t yet have a set of these spiritually empowering oils, you can use the link at the bottom of this article to order yours.

It took me a couple of years of using a select group of these oils everyday before I began to understand how these oils work from a spiritual point of view. They carry the blueprint of the Infinite within them. They carry the energy of the Sun, the Earth, and the stars within them. It is this Universal energy that calls to me. And it is this energy that attracts this same energy to me. In other words, these oils draw to me what will support me in my spiritual growth. This is what I have found.

Do you see this? Can you understand how much bigger these oils are than just their chemical composition? I have only found this with Young Living oils and it is entirely due to the Seed to Seal process that is Young Living’s guarantee. It is this promise of caring, of stewardship, of purity, and the knowledge and wisdom of decades of research that allow these oils to come to us with this energy intact.

On our spiritual journey, there are many things that come our way that seem ridiculous to our unawakened mind. It is a step of faith to move forward in spite of the mind’s arguments. Yet, we all have this calling within us to move forward on our path. It is only as we do so that we are able to see from a different perspective. What seemed ridiculous now becomes a path to greater truth.

Night time, when we sleep, is an opportunity to accomplish so much! Healing happens when we sleep. Our day gets processed through our dreams. We may be doing much work from a spiritual point of view when we are sleeping. Before we go to sleep is a great time to set your intention for those next few hours.

Do you have a beautiful ritual before bed?

There are two Young Living essential oils I like to use just before bed: Sacred Frankincense and Peace and Calming.

Just the name, Sacred Frankincense, says it all. Frankincense is a life-enhancing oil. Sacred life. What better place to go during sleep than to that sacred place within your own being? Set your intention to be in that beautiful place and apply the oil where ever you choose… the crown of the head, over the heart center…let your intuition guide you.

Peace and Calming is one of those gorgeous oils. The fragrance is rich and romantic. It reminds me of hearts and flowers and it has a beautiful blue color.

Each night as you prepare for bed, put a drop of Peace and Calming on the sole of each foot. Then, put a couple of drops in your hand and circle three times clockwise, to activate and harmonize the oil with your intention, then smooth the oil over your neck and top of your shoulders.

Breathe from your hands once you are in bed. Just breathe naturally nine times. Feel how your breathing deepens as you go along. Feel how the tension begins to ease. Feel how the mind starts to quiet. Place yourself in the presence of the Infinite.

In the still of the night, Peace and Calming, Sacred Frankincense… a blissful night.
