4 Reasons Why You Should Practice Tantric Therapy

Published

Tantric therapy is a sacred healing practice from the ancient Hindu tradition. It dates back to over 5,000 years ago. It is a spiritual and energetic approach to life, love, and intimacy. You can achieve tantric therapy through practices such as breathing, mindfulness (meditation), moving energy, and sensual touch. As a result, you learn how to connect with yourself and the world at large in a real, beautiful, poetic, and deep manner.

How Does Tantric Therapy Work?

We use the following tantric techniques:

These methods open the energy system in such a way that dormant energy moves up the spine, initiating healing and transformation throughout the body.

You see, as our bodies age through the years, they develop constrictions and contractions. Tantric therapy loosens the body, allowing for transformation in the physical, emotional, and spiritual realms.

Similarly, as children, we were all stress-free, full of potential, and with amazing zeal for life. We had pure love and awareness for others. What changed us are life and its struggles. When we employ tantra as a self-development hack, tantra expands our body and soul back to its original state.

So, this strategy will enhance your strength, compassion, focus, and stress management skills. It will make sure you get that undivided attention to your dreams, aspirations, and goals in life.

Tantric Therapy and Spirituality (Self-Development/Meditation)

In this context, tantra is about directing all energies, capabilities, and intelligence towards you. In addition, it involves connecting all that is within us with spirituality, including our partners.

Through its emphasis on reciting mantras, meditation, and belief in supernatural deities, tantric therapy offers easy communication channels. Ones that allow you to speak your mind out and claim the impossible. Such help you feel well cared for and passionate about life.

In a nutshell, when you employ physical efforts via your sexuality, creativity, and mental energy to reach ambitions you hold dearly in your heart or to develop your life, you have experienced tantric therapy.

And when all your efforts come from deep within, you become affectionate and mindful to other people especially your partner.

Health and Spiritual Effects of Tantric Therapy

Tantric therapy is a remedy for chronic ailments. It replaces them with vigor and enthusiasm by enabling the body to use the healing energy within it effectively. Tantra also clears blockages that hinder personal developments. As a result, you no longer experience stagnation in life.

Tantra works by purifications of the contractions that emanate from our day-to-day life. By also distributing essential energy throughout the body, we realize maximum personal development.

Tantric therapy takes care of confusion, anxiety, and emotional distress. It enhances your confidence, esteem, and high IQ. In return, you become wise, alert, and sharp. The therapy unleashes your potential to unimaginable levels and nothing that can hinder your progress.

A Tool for Sexual Freedom

We all want to live a fulfilling life, right? In the west, people confuse tantra for masturbation. However, while sexual satisfaction and multiple orgasms is a welcome benefit, tantra focuses on a much broader sexual satisfaction. It uses a holistic approach to awaken sexual organs. The therapy is in such a way that even your brain receptors are awakened. As a result, with tantra, you break the chains of your past.

If you have been a victim of sexual abuse, for example, tantra will clear off your mind from the negativity such sexual trauma brings. You also realize the potential you hold within you; both sexually and mentally.

In other words, tantric therapy brings intimate healing to people who’ve been sexually abused before. It gives them a platform for connection and love by freeing them off guilt and shame. They also get to learn new ways of intimacy, which are fun, exciting and sacred.

Henceforth, others no longer define sexuality for you. Instead, you can take full charge and still enjoy more benefits. This is a life with profound joy, excitement, and freedom!

Role of Tantric Therapy in Relationships

What is tantra inage

Tantric therapy combines the energy of the whole body to bring us closer to our partners. In essence, it’s engineered towards intimate healing. Tantric therapy involves massage and sensual touches to stimulate the nerves. This creates a sensation of pleasure to your brain. It has therapeutic functions that bring greater joy and awakening to these senses.

In doing so, you overlook the weakness, shortcomings, and mistakes of your partner to enjoy the “now” moment and give feelings of appreciation.

The main goal of tantra is to do away with any blocks in our relationships. Such blocks include stress, tension, and pressures of everyday life. It releases tension in both partners, even if it’s the woman who physically experiences tantra. As a result, you can connect deeper and be better lovers.

In addition, once you achieve sexual freedom (as discussed above), you get a chance to enjoy intimate relationships and to trust again because you become more receptive of touch. Once you get mental healing, you will also achieve emotional breakthroughs.

Finally, tantra helps couples to connect better despite their busy lives. It is easier to get caught up with raising kids, advancing careers, and living up to societal expectations. But tantric therapy serves as a constant reminder that your sole purpose of getting together as a couple was to share love and happiness as you build a fantastic future together. This is mostly experienced when your partner is the one offering you tantric therapy.

And through tantric therapy, your whole experience in a relationship serves as an avenue for meditation. In return, you and your partner will get closer and get happier and fulfilled.

The Bottom Line

Tantric therapy is an essential practice for the overall wellbeing. You harmonize your spiritual, physical, and mental connections, as you experience satisfaction on a new level.

Distance Reiki Healing: Does It Really Work?

Published

on

Distance Reiki image

Have you ever heard of distance Reiki? Do you have suspicions when you hear about it? Does this type of healing really work? It’s normal to ask these questions and to have doubts about this practice. There is nothing wrong with this! But before jumping into conclusions it’s good to research this topic. And I’m here to help you with this. In this article, I will explain what distance Reiki is and answer the most common questions about distance Reiki healing.

What Is Distance Reiki Healing?

Distance Reiki healing is a type of healing in which the patient and the Reiki healer are distantly remote from each other. In this case, the distance itself can be manifested differently – it can be different rooms inside the same house, different cities or even different countries on opposite sides of the globe. The distance of the patient from the healer does not affect the quality of treatment. In other words, it doesn’t matter if the healer (or patient) is in just another room from you or in another country, the quality of healing will be the same.

What Are the Distance Reiki Healing Benefits?

Reiki Quotes Image
  1. The healer can perform a Reiki session at a convenient time and in a convenient place for him/her. And the patient can receive a Reiki healing session at a convenient time and in a convenient place for him/her.
  2. A distance Reiki healing session is usually a little shorter than a full-time Reiki session. Usually, one healing session lasts for 30-45 minutes, although it can last longer depending on the patient. But it shouldn’t last less than 30 mins.
  3. It is possible to perform Reiki healing session for a large group of patients all at once, and the quality of the healing will still l be as good as if the healing session was performed for them separately.

In What Cases Can Distance Reiki Can Be Performed?

Distance Reiki can be performed in the following cases:

  • you need to continue Reiki healing for your patient if he/she has left the area where you live unexpectedly;
  • help people when they are far away from you, for example, in a hospital or live in another city;
  • heal the parts of your body (or your patient’s body) which for any reason it is impossible to touch with your hands, for example, if you find it difficult to put your hands on your shoulder blades, back, feet, or if any touch causes pain (for example if you or your patient has burns or open wounds);
  • with a lack of time to perform a full hands-on session;
  • animal healing.

Does Distance Reiki Work?

Reiki Master Cosmos Image

Yes, it does! If it’s performed by an experienced Reiki healer. Moreover, I can assure you that distance Reiki healing is as effective as contact Reiki sessions. And sometimes it can even be more effective, because a person, taking a session, is in his/her usual environment and can relax much more, which allows Reiki to work more effectively.

You have to understand that Reiki exists beyond time and space. And in both cases (distance and contact healing), we are dealing with the same energy of the same quality.

The only reason why distance Reiki healing may not work is if your healer is dishonest. I met some people who called themselves “Reiki healers” but in fact, they were not. They claimed that they heal people but in fact, they were just sending their wishes for their patients to be healed. It took them literally a couple of minutes (sometimes even seconds) to send their “healing”. But of course, this is not a distance Reiki healing!

Real Reiki healing session (whether it’s contact or distance) requires a preparation process such as clearing the space, meditation, prayer, and mantra. If your healer doesn’t perform these actions before an actual healing session we can’t call it Reiki healing and all you can do is just to hope that the healing that he/she provides will help you as a placebo.

Do We Need Permission to Perform Distance Reiki Healing?

Yes, we always need to ask for permission to perform distance Reiki healing. Everyone has free will and we must respect other people’s decisions. We have no right to force people to receive Reiki healing as well as we should never try to convince people to do it if they don’t want to.

Of course, we can’t ask permission if a person is unconscious or in a coma for example. In this case, it is possible to send healing with a clear intention that this healing session will be received only if a patient’s Higher self accepts it for his/her Highest good. When you’re setting the intention, also add that if your patient abandons the energy, it may instead be directed at the healing of the Earth or someone else who needs it. The unwanted energy of Reiki can be thus directed to positive use, while not ruining the law of free will.

Remember to Set Up the Exact Time for the Healing Session

time image

It’s very important to set up the exact time for distance Reiki healing session with your patient. As practice shows, it is much more effective when the patient consciously receives distance Reiki healing session, rather than sleeping or doing other things during the healing session. He/she can fall asleep during the session, that’s normal. But even when he/she is falling asleep he/she should be conscious of the healing that is happening at the moment.

What Position Should a Patient Take While Receiving Distance Reiki Healing?

During the distance session, it is desirable for the patient to sit or lie in a relaxed position, with his/her eyes closed. It’s important to never keep arms or legs crossed because this position can create a block in energy flow. Also, never perform or receive Reiki healing with metal jewelry on. Metal also blocks energy and it affects the quality of the healing session.

What Should a Patient Do During the Reiki session?

First of all, if you receive the healing session you need to express your intention to receive distance Reiki healing and then just immerse yourself in your feelings. Also, I always recommend my patients to use affirmations or visualizations for increasing of the healing quality. During the session try to align your thoughts and feelings with the healing process, simply allow yourself to flow with the process and be carried away by the flow of healing energy.

Reiki Distance Healing Guide For Reiki Healers

reiki principle love image

This part of the article is for Reiki healers. I created this simple guide for using it as a reminder and help you to keep this information organized.

Reiki Symbols In Distance Reiki Healing

3rd Reiki Symbol (HSZSN)

The Reiki healing session is provided by the use of the 3rd Reiki symbol (HSZSN). This symbol can be called a symbol of unity and infinity. It can be translated as “no past, no present, no future”. This is the key to going beyond any time and space limits. The 3rd Reiki symbol connects us with the highest level of unity, where we are all one, where space and time do not exist. After visualizing this symbol over a person or situation, an exact contact bridge is established to transmit Reiki to that person or situation.

1st Reiki Symbol (CKR)

In cases where an enhanced energy impact on the physical body is required, the 1st Reiki symbol (CKR) is added to the 3rd Reiki symbol (HSZSN).

2nd Reiki Symbol (SHK)

In situations that require the resolution of some psychological problems, the 2nd Reiki symbol (SHK) is added.

Nowadays, in the Western Reiki system, it has become a tradition to use all the symbols at the same time. Which makes logical sense. To do this, a healer draws a corridor of Reiki symbols in the following order:

  • 3rd Reiki Symbol (HSZSN)
  • 1rd Reiki Symbol (CKR)
  • 2nd Reiki Symbol (SHK)

How to Perform Distance Reiki Healing?

reiki healing guide image

I’ll share with you one of the most common techniques Reiki healers use for distance Reiki healing. But there are many other different variations that you can use.

Remember to cleanse the room before you start your healing session. You can use Reiki for this purpose or/and other methods of energy cleansing. Also, it’s good to cleanse your aura before the session. Light a candle or/and incense to create a healing atmosphere.

Quick Instructions:

  1. You need to find a quiet and calm place where nobody will bother you. Sit down comfortably but keep your spine straight. Put your hands in the Gassho mudra in front of your chest. Take a few deep breaths and invite Reiki.
  2. Draw and activate the 3rd Reiki symbol (HSZSN).
  3. Express your intention to heal or to be healed (if you’re using distance Reiki healing for self-healing).
  4. Send the healing session by focusing on the patient or situation following one of the methods below.
  5. If necessary, you can add the 1st or/and 2nd Reiki symbols.
  6. At the end of the session place your hands in Gassho mudra in front of your chest and thank Reiki.
  7. When you have finished the healing session, return to the present and let go of the thought about the healing session. If you continue to think about it, you are holding the energy intended for the patient.

Ways to Perform Distance Reiki Healing:

#1 Following the positions

Imagine that you are next to the person you are healing and you are performing a traditional hands-on session.

You can place your hands in front of you (one above the other) at a distance of 5 inches and hold the healing session between your palms.

This method requires a lot of time to perform Reiki positions, and, consequently, the healer has to keep the patient’s visualization for a long time, which can be quite difficult in the absence of the acquired skill of holding the visualization.

To make the session take less time, you can imagine that you have additional pairs of hands and put them in different positions during the session. This will significantly reduce the session time. But it still requires a lot of effort to concentrate.

#2 Working with the phantom

Visualize your patient. Imagine that he/she shrinks in size and becomes very small so that he/she fits between your palms. Mentally place your patient on the palm of your left hand. Draw Reiki symbols over the phantom of your patient with your right hand. Hold Reiki healing energy between your palms (where your patient’s phantom is located), holding the palm of your right hand over the left hand.

#3 Working with the picture

Take a photo of the patient. Write down his/her name, date of his/her birth and his/her location on the reverse side of the picture (this is completely optional, you can just keep this information in mind or say it out loud).

Place the photo on the palm of your left hand. Draw Reiki symbols above it. And now you can send Reiki between your palms through the picture to your patient.

You can use this method even if you do not have a photo of the patient. In this case, write down his/her name, date of birth and location on a piece of paper. And then just send Reiki healing session through this piece of paper performing the actions described above.

As you can see, there are different ways to perform a distance Reiki healing session. Choose the one that you like best, or try all the ways and choose the one that suits you, your patient or the situation best.

How to Formulate the Intention for Distance Reiki Healing Session?

When formulating the intention for your distance Reiki healing session you need to answer 3 questions:

  1. Who?
  2. Where?
  3. When

Who?

When formulating the intention you need to say the first and last name of the patient. You can also specify his/her age or date of birth.

Where?

Include into your intention the location of the patient at the moment.

When?

Include into your intention the exact time of the session. If you agree with the patient in advance about the time, then in the intention you have to set this exact time.

Sometimes it is more convenient to agree on an arbitrary time for receiving the session. In this case, use the following wording in your intention: “at any time suitable for him/her.”

Here is an example of intention:

“This distance Reiki session is intended for … (first name, last name), 26 years old, located in … (city, country)”.

Or:

“This distance Reiki session is intended for … (first name, last name), 26 years old, located in … (city, country)”. This session can be received at any suitable time for him/her.”

The Bottom Line

I encounter the fact that people who have never tried Reiki healing are often very skeptical about the possibility of distance sessions. But after they receive a regular hands-on Reiki session, most of them agree to try a distance method. And most of them, actually notice that the feelings of these sessions are brighter and it’s easier for them to relax and go to a deep meditative state which increases the energy healing process.

Crown Chakra Blockage Symptoms And Ways To Heal It

Published

on

Crown Chakra Blockage Image

Crown chakra is the seventh primary chakra. It’s also called “Sahasrara” which means “thousand-petaled”. It is the highest point that determines the spiritual life of a person. Knowledge about this “thousand-petalled Lotus” is very important for those who seek to find their spiritual path. Therefore if you’re involved in any spiritual practice it’s necessary to know what symptoms indicate Crown Chakra blockage and how to heal it.

In this article, I’ll share with you my research on how to recognize Crown Chakra blockage and powerful ways to heal it. But first, let’s talk about the the importance of Crown chakra in our energy system and its structure. You see, without this information, it would be hard to understand the condition of your Sahasrara.

The Importance of Sahasrara

Sahasrara is the point through which a soul comes out of the body after death.

Thanks to the crown chakra, we are able to learn, to realize, to accept, and to connect our consciousness to universal love and infinite knowledge.

With the full disclosure of Sahasrara, people find a state of calm and balance. They change their consciousness and let go of their past and torment. They reach the awareness of the integrity of the individual and the perception of yourself as an important element of the Universe.

The Crown chakra disclosure leads to the rapid development of the other six chakras.

Location of Sahasrara Chakra

Crown chakra is located at the top of the head. If we consider more exactly where the crown chakra, is the area of the Fontanelle.

Crown Chakra Structure

Crown chakra opening symptoms

Each chakra looks like a rotating cone, the diameter of which is from 2 to 4 inches. As it enters the human body, the shape of the chakra narrows, “connecting” further to the spine.

Crown chakra consists of 1000 petals, forming 20 layers, 50 pieces each. This number is very symbolic. After all, it represents a variety of spiritual paths that are open to human achievement.

In the center of Crown chakra is a circle depicting the mandalas of the Moon and the Sun. The circle, which symbolizes the full moon, is the crown of the spiritual development of the soul in the physical body. Its combination with the Sun allows to connect various energy channels, directing them to the Central Nadi – Sushumna.

Sahasrara symbol represents the dual nature of the Earth and the need to return to integrity. There is a miniature dot in the center of the circle which represents emptiness. Approaching this point is possible only with a very long and conscious spiritual development.

Crown Chakra Color

Sahasrara Chakra Test Image

If we look at the scheme of energy centers, the purple dot on the human body will tell us where Crown chakra is.

This color is unusual and very complex. It is a combination of two tones – blue and red. These colors, which are opposite in meaning, combine together to form purple. Purple is considered a magical and mysterious color.

In addition, purple is associated with the divine. It is a symbol of spiritual development and represents the connection with the Cosmos.

In addition to the purple Sahasrara Lotus petals also contain white color and radiate all the rainbow tones that eventually merge together. The harmonious combination of all these colors represents the ability of a person to comprehend the superconsciousness.

What Is Sahasrara Responsible For?

Physically its work affects the pineal gland and the brain. If we consider the spiritual aspect, Sahasrara chakra has the ability to absorb and produce the highest frequency of Kundalini energy.

If a person doesn’t have a Crown chakra blockage, he is an altruist, he has boundless energy and the ability to sympathize. In addition, he/she does even the most routine work with great inspiration and creativity. These people are attractive. They like to wear bright clothes, enjoy life and inspire others with their example.

Signs Of Opened Crown Chakra

People with opened Sahasrara live outside of duality.

If Crown Chakra works to the maximum, it has a direct impact on the brain. At the same time, Sahasrara produces higher vibrations that change the perception of both the person and the people around him/her.

Signs Of Opened Sahasrara are:

  • understanding the possibility of living without conflict;
  • getting answers to your questions from the Universe;
  • a strong connection to God and the Universe;
  • understanding and accepting your own uniqueness;
  • perception of yourself as a formed personality;
  • no feeling of annoyance, anger, and fear;
  • the ability to analyze and manage your own emotions, as well as to understand the causes of their occurrence;
  • a sense of oneness with the world;
  • harmony of body and soul.

To learn more about symptoms and signs of the Crown chakra opening read my article “Crown Chakra Opening Symptoms You Should Be Aware Of“.

Crown Chakra Blockage

Good news is that complete Crown Chakra blockage never occurs!

However, if a person is not engaged in any spiritual practices, his/her Sahasrara is open at its initial stage. This state of the seventh chakra leads to a feeling of own independence (Note: independence and freedom are not the same. While freedom has a positive meaning, independence is based on duality and has destructive power). Such a person doesn’t feel any connection with the Universe. This condition often causes a feeling of uncertainty and fear, blocking all other chakras, which prevents the energy flow from free circulation through the body.

Poorly opened Sahasrara leads to the fact that a person can’t find his/her true life purpose. He/she has a lot of questions, the answers to which he/she can’t find.

Other signs of Crown chakra blockage are:

  • the inability to think clearly in a stressful situation;
  • seeking to “taste” all the “fruits” of spiritual achievements without learning to “plant”, “water” and “cultivate” them;
  • dissatisfaction with life;
  • depression;
  • loneliness;
  • unwillingness to communicate with other people;
  • loss of zest for life;
  • fear of death.

Crown Chakra Balancing

There is a number of ways you can use for your Crown Chakra opening and healing. In this article, I’ll share with you some of them.

1. The Sun And The Moon Exercise

  1. Sit in the Lotus position. Your face should be turned to the North. Put your fingers together and close your eyes.
  2. Visualize the Moon to your left side and imagine that it is cold.
  3. Visualize the Sun to your right and imagine that it’s warming you up.
  4. Now visualize the world as continuous energy of the Universe.
  5. Inhale cold energy with your left nostril, and raise the Moon energy up. After that, mentally, the energy should be lowered down to the coccyx.
  6. Inhale hot energy of the Sun with your right nostril and pass it from top to bottom.
  7. Thus, at the coccyx, there are two energy flows meet. They should mentally envelop your spine.
  8. After that, the energy flows should be raised up and held at a point located at the level of the nape.
  9. Now switch the energy flows. Let the cold flow of energy pass into the right hemisphere, and the warm – to the left. Connect these flows at the level of the seventh chakra.

This exercise should be repeated at least twenty times. The energy should rise on the inhale and fall down on the exhale. If all your lower chakras are opened and balanced then you will see the results already in the 2-3 months since the beginning of this practice.

2. Mantra Therapy

At the very beginning, you need to calm down internally, establish control over your own consciousness and relax your body as much as possible.

You should start with the mantra OM. It is necessary to relax the entire body and evenly distribute vibrations throughout the body – from head to toe.

Then you can start chanting bija mantra for Sahasrara chakra.

Bija mantra for Sahasrara is “AH”.

When chanting this mantra your concentration should be on the top of your head.

3. Affirmations

It’s also good to use special affirmations for activating and balancing your Crown chakra. Here are some effective Sahasrara chakra affirmations that you can use.

  • I’m free from depression and fatigue.
  • I trust the Universe and boldly go forward.
  • I’m free from fear.
  • There is the presence of God everywhere.
  • I feel unity with other people and the world.
  • I realize my own uniqueness and recognize my own Divinity.

4. Ritual Baths

Ritual baths are not only very effective but probably one of the most pleasant ways to heal your Crown chakra. All the details of this magical procedure and all the instructions you can find in my article “Ritual Baths For Chakra Balancing”.

5. Clothing

Sometimes it’s good to wear purple clothes, and the one with the print of Crown chakra. It helps to balance your energy field and activate your Sahasrara.

6. Interior Design

The interior can be replenished with items that harmonize the energy of the house and your own energy. When you look at the paintings of Sahasrara chakra or mandalas your energy potential is greatly enhanced.

7. Crystals

Some of the most powerful Crown chakra crystals are:

  • Ametrine;
  • Amethyst;
  • Quartz Crystal;
  • Moonstone;
  • Selenite.

8. Food

Sahasrara corresponds to the food of purple color. For your Crown chakra activation and healing, you can use any purple fruits and vegetables such as eggplant, plum, etc.

Fasting and detoxifying are beneficial for the development of Crown chakra as it awakens to the highest form of spiritual communication.

9. Aromatherapy

This procedure creates a pleasant atmosphere and improves the functioning of your Crown chakra. Lotus and Lavander are the best essential oils for Crown chakra healing.

10. Yoga For Crown Chakra

Conclusion

If you are ready to accept the will of God, ready to merge with the energies of the Universe your Crown chakra will start opening. Crown chakra is the gate behind which a completely different world begins. This is an entrance to the infinity of consciousness, the unification with the entire Universe.

Our goal on Earth is to build up our energy so that we would be able to break through these gates and free ourselves from the invisible shackles that restrain us from our freedom to live our full potential.

Palo Santo: 7 Amazing Benefits And Powerful Ways To Use It

Published

on

Palo Santo Image

Palo Santo has been used for centuries in various spiritual, religious and medicinal ways. In this article, I will share with you some amazing benefits and different ways to use it for healing and spiritual purposes.

What Is Palo Santo?

Palo Santo is mystical tree that grows mainly in South America (Peru, Argentina, Bolivia, Ecuador, etc.). In Ecuador, for several months from January to June, the air is filled with a sweet and mysterious note of Palo Santo mixed with the sea breeze. For many generations, its wood was used by Indian peoples for the preparation of medicinal decoctions, tinctures and, of course, for purification by smoke.

Palo Santo literally means “Holy Wood”. A distinctive feature of this tree is the ability to accumulate in its wood aromatic resins and essential oils, and accordingly, to allocate them during processing.

The Mystery Of Palo Santo

The quality and quantity of oil that is extracted from Palo Santo wood varies according to the lunar cycle. In particular, the new moon gives less oil and a lighter flavor. The full moon is more oil and a deeper flavor. The special Moon power at the equator affects the gravitational fields that affect distillation. Thus, we can say that the Moon itself supports the extraction of the oil from wood.

Shamanic Wisdom

Shamanic ritual image

For centuries, before Palo Santo was introduced to North America, it was used by shamans to cleanse themselves from negative energy, attract positive energy, restore peace and balance, improve concentration and meditation, and heal people on the physical and spiritual levels.

The ancient practice of shamanism believes that Palo Santo contains a Spirit. This Spirit is the manifestation of Palo Santo’s healing power. The shaman turns to the Spirit of this Holy Wood and allows the spirit to heal. The spirit of the tree carries wisdom that allows the smoke of the Palo Santo stick to heal people physically, emotionally, and spiritually.

Shamans warn that the spirit of Palo Santo must be treated with respect and to never abuse it. By the way, this is one of the reasons why it is forbidden to cut down Palo Santo trees. It has to fall itself in order for us to be allowed to enjoy its gifts.

Male and Female Trees

Interestingly there are male and female Palo Santo trees that grow in groups of one male tree and eight female trees. At the same time, the life expectancy of male trees is 200 years, while female trees tend to live about 40-50 years.

Their wood also has distinctive characteristics. The wood of the female trees is yellow, hard and heavy, while the wood of the male is white, hollow, fragile, and light. Shamans teach that these trees have a special Spirit that lives in the forest long after the tree’s life is over. It is not surprising that shamans believe these trees are living beings!

Palo Santo Benefits

1. Cleansing of negative energy

One of the most amazing qualities of the Palo Santo tree is its ability to cleanse everything it comes into contact with. The smoke coming from the stick produces a deep cleansing effect on the energy.

Shamans say that the attraction to Palo Santo fragrance is a sign of emotional and spiritual purity. However, there are people who feel discomfort from inhaling the aroma of Palo Santo. This phenomenon is part of the cleansing effect. Constant use of Palo Santo helps a person to be cleansed of negative energies.

2. Maintaining an atmosphere of peace and harmony

palo santo cleansing image

It helps to cleanse the room from negative energy. Thus, peace and harmony come to the house.

3. Relaxation

It helps to enter into deep meditation and immersion in a feeling of peace and protection.

4. Expansion of consciousness

It helps to reach the feeling of unity with the Universe.

5. Therapeutic effect

It has a rich set of medicinal properties, including:

  • antibacterial;
  • antiseptic;
  • antiviral;
  • immunostimulating;
  • spasms relief;
  • decongestant;
  • expectorant;
  • sedative;
  • antineoplastic.

6. Attracting positive energy

It is able not only to cleanse negative energy but also to attract positive energy. During the burning of the stick, the Spirit of Palo Santo releases the oils of the Sacred Wood, which purify the space and the people that inhale the smoke. Thus, the Spirit attracts positive energy and even heals people on both the physical and subtle levels.

7. Structuring of thoughts and concentration

When a person is healed on a subtle spiritual level, his ability to concentrate increases and makes meditation deeper and stronger.

Different Ways to Use Palo Santo

palo santo sticks image

1.The use of Palo Santo Wood without burning it

One of the most popular uses of this Holy Wood is as a talisman or amulet.

You can also place small pieces of the wood to aromatize the space – cabinets, car, rooms. However, make sure you treat Palo Santo with respect! For example, do not place it in the toilet or next to the trash can! Remember that the Spirit lives in these pieces of wood. Therefore, you need to treat them appropriately!

You can place sticks on your altar. Thus, you will bless the altar itself and increase the magnetism of all the power objects that are on it.

Another way to use it is to place a piece of the wood in the car. First of all, it will be a great alternative to using air fresheners. And secondly, it will protect you while driving and the car itself.

2. Burning Palo Santo Sticks

You can burn the sticks to purify your aura and to cleanse the energy of your house.

When you burn the sticks, you not only purify the energy from the negativity but also attract positive energy into your space.

How to Burn Palo Santo Sticks?

Holding the stick by one edge, you set fire to its tip on the other side. Wait until a small part of it evenly lights up. Then carefully put it out, blowing or waving it in the air. Let the smoke rise freely in the air.

If you want to cleanse the energy of any objects – bring the stick close enough to them and make a few circular movements around to make smoke gently envelop them. Or just put the smoldering Palo Santo next to you for a few minutes.

The same can be done for cleansing the space. Just walk around the room, bringing a smoking stick to each corner. If the smoke begins to fade gently blow on the stick.

To conduct self-cleansing, move a burning stick in a circular motion from head to toe.

When you have done all the necessary actions, you can put a burning stick on a ceramic saucer, shell or any other refractory stand. The stick will extinguish itself after some time.

3. Essential Oil

Palo Santo is a natural cleanser. Use it in a diffuser to stay healthy. This healing oil has antitumor, anti-infective, antiviral, antiseptic, anti-inflammatory, immune-stimulating, and sciatic effects on the body.

In addition, this oil is an ideal additive to massage oils.

This essential oil will help you ground and release emotions such as anger and fear. Use the oil during your meditation to stay concentrated and connected with the spirit. It calms, relaxes, grounds, gives emotional balance, helps spiritual development, activates inspiration, and helps your concentration.

Conclusion

Do you want to take your spiritual practice to the next level? Then Palo Santo is the tool to use! You can use it in any form you like and see its amazing benefits. Cleansing, protection, healing and so many more positive properties you can get just out of one stick! If you’ve never tried using it, you don’t know what you’ve been missing!
