Spiritual Healing – Learn to Create an Anointing Ritual for the Release of Guilt
In an Old Testament account found in Leviticus, as an anointing ritual, the priest placed a healing essential oil on the right ear lobe, right thumb and right big toe of the one to be cleansed. The ear lobe is a reflex point to release guilt, and the right thumb and great toe are reflex points for the pineal gland in the brain. This ritual according to Leviticus was meant to restore the “leprous” person-that is one who had a skin disease of unknown meaning-back to the community.
The pineal gland synthesizes a hormone called melatonin in periods of darkness. Both the pineal gland and melatonin are being studied for their roles in aging, sleep and reproduction. The pineal gland is also involved in the process of creativity and planning things to do. If the pineal gland is not open, negative emotions will be attracted back to the field (space) that surrounds the physical body. Oils containing “sesquiterpenes,” a particular kind of hydrocarbon are especially effective in oxygenating the pineal and pituitary glands. For this anointing ritual I suggest using Cedarwood which is high in sesquiterpenes since they are compounds that cross the blood-brain barrier.
Cedarwood was probably the first oil to be obtained by distillation. It was used to cleanse lepers and evil spirits. The Egyptians and Sumerians were using it over 5,000 years ago for embalming, as a disinfectant and for other medicinal purposes. For biblical people, this oil symbolized abundance, fertility and spiritual strength.
A Healing Ritual
This healing ritual is based on the story in Leviticus about anointing the right ear lobe, right thumb and right big toe. To prepare for this healing ritual, take off your right shoe and sock. You may want to take your right ear ring out and place it in a safe place.
Bring yourself into a centered place by breathing deeply the breath of God. Allow this divine breath to fill you up, letting go the tension in your shoulders, neck, back, and legs.
Continue to breathe softly as you take a few drops of the cedarwood oil in your left palm. Now, take your right thumb and index finger and dip them into the oil in your left palm. Rub your right ear lobe between your thumb and index finger, cleansing your heart and releasing any guilt you may be carrying.
“Heavenly Creator I release all that holds me in bondage. I release any guilt that I may be carrying for things that I have done or failed to do.”
Now rub your right thumb and index finger together as you connect with the pineal gland in the brain.
“I breathe deeply the fragrance of cedarwood and allow the healing properties of this oil to penetrate to the pineal gland, opening to the process of creativity in my life.”
Now rub some of the oil on your right great toe as you continue to connect with the pineal gland in the brain.
“Again, I breathe deeply the fragrance of cedarwood releasing any negative emotions within my energy field. Fill me with your heavenly light, restore me to wholeness within and return me to the community fully healed.”
