Lorri Kulberg is a Certified Reflexologist and practitioner of Hands on Healing (energy work), who faithfully harnesses the power of essential oils in her daily practice as she meets with clients. She spoke with me on this topic of how we can go beyond just the basics and truly harness the incredible healing powers in these amazing amber bottles.
The Use of Oils in Professional Healing Practice
“Sometimes I can see the physical signs right away about which oil I should use on a client.”
Lorri may tune into the client’s needs through intuition or by tuning into her source of Higher Power. This will also give her a clue into how she should apply certain oils throughout the healing session.
There are three main methods by which a healer can assess your body’s need for a certain oil.
- Physical Signs or Symptoms & Knowledge of Oils
- Muscle Testing
- Intuition or “Tapping in”
So how does the healer know what you need? Each of the practitioners may explain it uniquely, but Lorri would say that there are direct energetic messages that can be felt between persons if you’re in tune, looking for them, and expecting them to come to you. In our wellness center, many of the practitioners harness the powerful life-giving energies of essential oils. Even the vibrational frequency in the center is heightened immensely by the consistent use of oils and other high vibrational healing techniques, creating a peaceful, positive place for clients to come in and be well.
Lorri believes in the company Young Living as her distributor for pure essential oils but is aware that many brands can produce pure oils, and respects all competitors.
Why do Essential Oils Work?
“Essential Oils have been around since the beginning of time. As long as they are produced in the pure form, then they are coming straight from the earth, and the earth was created by a higher power. The Creator has our best in mind.” – Lorri
How do we know which oils to extract and which are best for each of our physical emotional and spiritual experiences? That comes from research and success stories having been passed down for centuries.
All things contain energy. Some call it life force, some call it Qi (chi), call it what you will, it’s the energy we all pass around from person to thing and from thing to person as long as we live on this earth. If energy is not flowing well it directly affects how we feel and interact. It increases our risk for disease to develop in the body. Heinrich Hertz, a German physicist [1857-1894], who experimentally proved the existence of electromagnetic waves. Everything has a frequency. Rocks, plants, animals, humans, of course, furniture, and essential oils top the list for having some of the highest frequencies.
The list of common frequencies below is from a Young Living Resource:
- Healthy Human Brain 71-90 MHz
- Healthy Human Body (overall) 62-68 MHz
- When you have cold symptoms 58 MHz
- When you have flu symptoms 57 MHz
- When you have Candida infection 55 MHz
- When you have Epstein Barr syndrome 52 MHz
- When you have cancer 42 MHz
- When you begin to die 25 MHz
- Processed or Canned Foods 0 MHz
- Fresh Produce (depending how fresh) 10-15 MHz
- Dry Herbs 12-22 MHz Fresh Herbs 20-27 MHz
- Therapeutic Grade Essential Oils 52-320 MHz
Thinking negative thoughts has been seen to decrease your vibrational frequency significantly, as has the drinking of or even inhaling caffeine. On the flip side, simply holding a bottle of essential oil or speaking positivity or affirmations can re-elevate your vibrational frequency quickly.
Using Essential Oils elevates your healing capacity. In basic terms, the chemistry of the oils really works. It raises your body’s frequency to enable it to more quickly and efficiently heal itself. If you’re at an energy level of 50 MHz and you’re holding an oil over 100 MHz, your body is going to desire to elevate its own energy to meet that higher standard.
So how does the healer know what you need? Each of the practitioners may explain it uniquely, but Lorri would say that there are direct energetic messages that can be felt between persons if you’re in tune, looking for them and expecting them to come to you. In the center, many of the practitioners harness the powerful life-giving energies of essential oils. Even the vibrational frequency in the center is heightened immensely by the consistent use of oils and other high vibrational healing techniques, creating a peaceful, positive place for clients to come in and be well.
Set the Intention to Healing
Lorri encourages us to harness the power of essential oils by tuning into your needs and setting your intention about how that particular oil will help you. She is a firm believer that the intention you set does much of the healing, no matter whether the ailment is physical or mental or emotional, and the science is there to back her up. See below for *further reading.
“If your intention is to get rid of a headache, you’re going to find something that will make that headache go away. Deep down some of us like to have a headache, for the agony or the attention… if we’re honest.”
Lorri believes that the intention of the heart and mindsets the tone for the body’s physical healing abilities. No, it’s not all simply a placebo effect. But healing thoughts will heal!
Studies show that your mental state directly relates to how your body can heal itself.
Positive affirmations and deliberate thinking instill heightened feelings of well-being and the physical body responds directly to that.
So set the intention for your physical health goals. Whatever your goal is.
Essential Oils can help alleviate symptoms, and heighten your overall wellness. Some people have even reported their symptoms or diseases have been eliminated completely. But you have to believe it will happen. Practitioners at Tree of Life and many clinical physicians will agree that if one is not ready to heal and optimistically expecting it, the process will be slowed and perhaps not prove effective long term.
To get the most out of your oils at home and in your practice, keep setting the intention.
And be aware of the safe use of essential oils in every situation, per your distributor or brand’s guidelines. And if you’re just getting started with essential oils, be sure to check out our previous post, 3 Ways to Start Using Essential Oils Today.
“One day may be different than another day. Set each day with your intention or goal. What do you want to happen that day? If a certain oil doesn’t feel right, it may not be right for you at that day or that time. Check on it at a later time. If you still choose to use it at that time, the oil will still do what it is made to do.” But setting the intention maximizes the healing effect it will have on your body and spirit.
