I just finished this new image of the 10 virgins, I am calling it “Be Ye Prepare”. Each of the virgins have an oil lantern, 5 with oil and 5 without oil in the lantern…but I took artistic license and included an essential oil in each of their possessions. These EO’s were used for healing and given as valuable gifts in Bible times. Through my studies I found that there are 12 oils of the bible. Yes we only have 10 virgins so I have each virgin holding a plant of the EO or a container representing it. Then the last 2 oils I have represented as trees in the image.
Can you name the 12 oils used?
Yes of course you know…Frankincense, Myrrh
then there is… Sandalwood, Cassia, Cedarwood, Cypress, Galbanum, Hyssop, Myrtle, Onycha, Rose of Sharon and Spikenard,
Well, on with my story:)…the last 8 months I have been using and teaching classes on essential oils. I am SOOOO impressed with the healing properties that they have, and have been studying out the science behind them. I am so blown away…why don’t we know about these in our society? Why isn’t this common knowledge? So in my already way too busy life, I have made it a focus to share them with others through education (new site coming soon… for now class schedule is on Facebook like page under “events”) and bringing awareness and interest to them through my art. Really, once you know and understand how to use essential oils (EO) and get the results you do from them…and experience that they work faster, better and less cost then so many other things out there….and no side effects. (FYI they need to be 100% pure,(the best I found are here) that means even pregos you can ingest them…which I did… and you are good to go)…it’s way hard not telling others about them.
What amazes me and I love so much is that they heal physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually. Wait a minute!!! I do need take a second and give credit to my hubby, he actually started the wheels turning with this idea of the including the essential oils and with the ten virgins from the bible. Yes, I know it is olive oil in their lamps not essential oils, but it brought the subject to mind about how the Christ child was given Frankincense and Myrrh…WHY WAS THAT??? There had to be some reason they were given? Was there a spiritual reason as well? So it got me thinking, researching, learning and YES there is. Not only does Frankincense have healing properties that are so strong they are used to stop cancer (I can say this cause…one of my besties used it to get rid of her skin cancer on her face! Yes that’s right she did and it worked!!!) BUT emotionally they are amazing at releasing emotions, mentally it is used with alzheimer’s and schizophrenia among others mental issues. The one that I just loved hearing and learning is that they used it during the bible times to create clearer communication with God the Father. WOW!!! I remember thinking “Of course it would be given to the Christ child, even if it was just for that one reason alone…right!!!”
I personally started using Frankincense myself and noticed my hormones leveling out. After just having a baby that was a big one for me. No postpartum anymore. 🙂 yeah!!! BUT the one that I was not expecting, and it took me a week to realize,…I noticed that I was always praying and communicating with God, I was feeling so much closer to him. That praying felt more free flowing and natural then I had ever experienced before. I caught myself and thought, “I’ve been doing this all week”. That is when I realized it all started after I had started taking an oil blend every day that has a ton of Frankincense in it. I feel a spiritual enlightenment constantly and a calm peacefulness all day when I use it. I have noticed this cause I ran out 3 days ago and YES, I and my family are noticing a difference (postpartum). I couldn’t figure it out…why I was feeling different then before and that is when I realized it… Boy I can’t wait for my EO order to get here. 🙂
I do have some big plans for this image “Be Ye Prepared” in enlightening and sharing spiritual insight of this parable and it’s valuable message of being prepared in all sense of the work. I am also excited to enlighten and share with you about the essential oils that are in the image too and how those oils or others that have the same properties can assist you in “Be Ye Prepared”.
So be sure to stay in touch with the site and our Facebook like page to see how we are going to share this with you in other ways, as well as a print you can hang on your wall.
