Arc of the Ancients Aromatherapy & Astrology
On Friday the 13th as darkness shrouded the earth, a bright super moon shed light and open wide the doorway of the magical T-Square.
It is however, just that…a TAO Cross and remember that word…’square’.
It can put people in tough situations, make or break them.
I couldn’t bring myself to even write about it, I sat down and started and then…once again my heavy heart brought me to my knees. These are not easy times…not by any stretch of the imagination, unless you are either living under a rock, or so removed from the vicissitudes of life, the very real struggles so many face now, that you really don’t get what is happening.
As often as I have written about these times we now find ourselves in, starting well over a decade ago, prognosticating about these times, I still find myself ‘feeling it all’. I don’t have the ability to not care about people and just be selfish enough to only focus on my own world. It is also in part, how the universe cracks open and divulges her secrets. It is how everything I have ever done in my adult life is born.
Today, it is with heavy heart, that I am forcing myself to release some of this and share my own truth, yet again. I don’t want to…I would rather share great news, be able to lie and tell people what they want to hear, it would make my life so much easier.
But if I didn’t care, I wouldn’t have cashed in my entire retirement plan to help co-found the first, certified school for alternative healing…then called, Cleveland Polarity, so convinced was I of the amazing work that would heal people naturally.
The thing about being able to ‘see’…or ‘read’ the stars, etc., is you can’t do this for yourself. You can do this for others, but not yourself. (Yes, a little, like knowing the stock market was going to crash in October of 2008, in the spring of that year and negotiating out of the last two years of a 5 year lease, to leave in September of that year.)
But could I foresee the landlord of the second center I opened, hitting my then business partner in the face, in front of 3 other customers and myself? After investing in major renovations in that space? Nope. Nor the ensuing 11 day trial with the landlord (who was also an attorney for decades in the city) and all the underhanded tactics he would employ to try and win his case? Did I foresee being called a witch, all day every day for those 11 days? Because he used pictures of my astrology, the aromatherapy blending bar and reiki symbols as his evidence that I am a witch? (This is a true story)
I didn’t foresee going into shock, as they allowed this and even called me a bitch, yes….over and over.
So, no…I didn’t know I would go into shock and another ‘healer’ who was there…would ask me, while I was in shock and fighting for breath: “What do you think your lesson is in this?”…I am sure she didn’t realize how cruel this was…and how opposite of healing that was.
Everyone advised me not to take him to court. My mother: ‘Gloria, don’t risk your business and everything you have worked so hard for.’…another friend: ‘You can’t beat the boys at their own game in his court’…and on and on.
But all I could hear, was ‘HER’ voice…”Gloria, I need you to do this for me, for my girls”….and so…of course, I had to take him to court and prosecute him.
For me, it was an opportunity to truly do something that might have meaning, and difficult situations are exactly when you can make a difference.
We won that case. He was found guilty, even with all his shenanigans, and there were many. He was eventually disbarred. No, not just because of this case, it was just the last straw for someone who had abused his power for too long. I had several women come up to me during the trial and thank me, telling me that they rented from him for example (single mothers) and he would be abusive and sexually intimidating and threatening when they were alone in their apartments and he came to collect the rent.
Or the woman who worked for him for a time, and repeated the same issues.
Or his 3 ex-wives who all filed domestic abuse charges and he got away with all of it…never being found guilty.
So, I took solace that I was doing the right thing, that SHE knew my copious note-taking habits…and used me to do HER work.
I didn’t have it in me to fight to be compensated via civil suit. I was already struggling under the weight of it all, and the people who abandoned me along the way…because I lost my constant sunny disposition. My positive attitude that knew no bounds. I couldn’t believe that the very people, I risked everything for, would betray me, replace me (I would have had to sue in that case too, and again, just didn’t have the fight left in me and wanted to move forward.) in my position with the school that abandoned me too.
Or all the people, that never knew a single thing about Aromatherapy, until I opened the door for them, spent the money and time to learn about it and share that with others, to watch them buy into ‘the pyramid scheme’ companies I could inform them about and how not one real Aromatherapist had a single lick of respect for those same companies.
So my support system, was demolished. (save for the loyal friends/earth angels) Though we borrowed more money to open up the 3rd and final center (which I allowed my then business partner to talk me into, since I didn’t think I had the right to go against what might be very necessary in this world, the truth about these things and the charlatan’s who had invaded the world of healing) eventually the bill collectors calls became too difficult…the money was gone and so was my optimism along with that business partner. But it was my money I invested…so I had a lot more at stake.
My first day sitting in my yard (which I never really got to experience, because we were always working, it comes with the territory) the sun slaked down my being and with it came the Angel Gabriel once more. “Gloria, you made the right decision, you are done with that part of your earthly task, and we have something else for you to do now.”
I began to write, the magic of essential oils keeping my mind, body and heart alive and well through it all. Prayer and meditation a welcome retreat.
Then came the ‘visions’ and ‘feelings’ of the coming storms, I felt the earthquakes in Chile and Haiti and astrologically determined when they would happen…yes I accurately predicted them. I felt the deaths rising in the Middle East, the famines…so when I went to go to sleep one night and my body would not stop spinning inside, making me nauseas, I was fully alert when I heard Her tell me, ‘the core of the earth is spinning faster and this is causing the buckling of the plates’. The next day, I ran the charts and accurately predicted the Fukushima earthquake.
That was it for me, I couldn’t take it anymore and asked, prayed to be released from all of it…I don’t want to know anymore I proclaimed, loudly.
It all but broke me.
In every way.
I lost my passion, any desire to create something new, didn’t want to read anymore for people because I didn’t want to see their own terrible road ahead and what they had to go through. I couldn’t put my hands on people most times to do healing sessions, not wanting to share the angst I felt. I just started to shut down.
I started to lament asking to come back after my near death experience (or actual death…because I swam inside of Gd, and all that love and that light. I can assure you all, Gd is very real) I just felt guiltier, for not being able to be stronger, take better care of finances instead of just saying, it is necessary so I just have to do it and the answers will come. I felt a RESPONSIBILITY.
I managed to make the blends when my spirits had lifted, to continue to help and provide genuine spirit-guided assistance that I knew helped people. It was one more consolation in a world growing darker and darker for me.
I almost lost my home. I had to fight to keep it, when the mortgage company falsely appropriated my payments and put some into a ‘holding account’…not applying it to the mortgage. My home is worth twice what I owe…so getting their hands on this was a nice bargain for them, and I learned along the way that many just give up under the same or worse tactics. I am not even going into the abuse I suffered with charlatans claiming they could help me, if I just paid them…$$$. Threats to take my home and that I would be put out into the street the next day if they wanted. All while people were calling me for help…please help me, I have no money but I am sick…etc.
It is my good fortune to have wonderful loyal friends who did remain with me, who did step in to help me (if I asked, which is a major learning curve for me, an attack on my dignity and ability to provide for myself, translated as failure in my own heart.)
I wrote…I wrote so many secrets learned along the way…so many hard-earned truths even to have those usurped after I shared some of them in classes and writings/blogs as if they were their own discovery…’healers’ lying to people and gaining followers, because they were all to ready to lie and tell people what they wanted to hear, rather than the truth, and simply line their own pockets, without principle.
Even now, I become leery of sharing the contents of my book…why share pearls with people who have not done the hard work to discover Gd? To open the mystery?
Eventually, I was so broken I went to work for a local hardware store. I had to work and didn’t want to take a job that required major commitment, energy invested in any sort of managing anything or anyone. I had next to zero energy.
The problem was, I don’t know how to not work hard. If something has to be done, I cannot stop myself from feeling responsible when someone is paying me to WORK. The cement floor and heavy lifting brought new problems though, physically. I was using WiseWoman and Pain Master like water, just trying to keep the pain down. (I almost died for a reason, that left major scars and also what led me down the path of alternative health, I HAD TO FIND OTHER WAYS TO HELP THE PAIN AND JUST LIVE A NORMAL LIFE.)
I thought I could manage working at the hardware store (make extra money) and still manage to fuel ArcAncient. I was wrong. It was darn near killing me physically and I would have no strength or energy left to do what I actually loved. So, eventually I came to the conclusion that I was becoming poorer, rather than catching up and I don’t have health care, so any little accident would do me in. My knees were screaming as were my feet by the time I got home.
People don’t want an unhappy healer. We have been programmed, yes that’s right, programmed to want the ‘cheerful happy person’ promising riches…people had been seduced by prosperity gospels, given by charlatans, when there is NOTHING SPIRITUAL ABOUT WEALTH OR MONEY OR THINGS YOU BUY. That is not saying that if you are wealthy you are not spiritually evolving, just that teaching any sort of prosperity connected to spiritual consciousness is false teachings, and why you won’t find a single scripture or teaching from previous sages, Confucius (found enlightenment under the tree, contemplating the suffering of others that he was not aware of, living in his palace as royalty), Jesus taught us about temptation in the desert. To deny that temptation for that which turns to dust. And on and on.
Then there is the ‘Stepford Wives’ version of spirituality being taught, as I have nicknamed it, where we must focus only on the positive or we will make the problem bigger. Anyone who knows me, also knows how much this ignorant teaching bothers me. Sounds like the teaching of the 50’s on how to be on your best behaviour at all times, or you won’t be ‘chosen’ as a wife, etc.
Of course it is nicer to hang around someone positive and upbeat, I had that nailed naively for a good portion of my life…and then reality set in.
I certainly did not project into my life, much of the trials and tribulations I have been through, the universe chose me to deal with as it forged reality and integrity into my soul, always giving me the option to look away and selfishly take care of only myself. Reality can be a harsh teacher.
Even back in the 80’s when we all rejoiced with each other at the Harmonic Convergence, all I could naively think was we were creating a new, kinder world for our soul’s evolution, that we had arrived. Well…we had arrived, but a new world comes through the destruction and chaos of the old world. It is the very meaning of the word Arc/k…’a vessel bearing seeds to give birth to a new world/paradigm out of the chaos of the old, thus Noah’s Ark, Joan of Arc, the Ark of the Covenant, The arch of the rainbow, etc.’
I surely didn’t foresee that there would be charlatans’ who would use spiritual goo, to entice people and become wealthy, spreading lies, but that go down as easy as heroin to some addict who first used that too. It feels good.
We are seduced in every way, at every stop, in so much Hollywood fodder, etc., that it is nearly impossible not to get caught in the net. Who doesn’t like nice things?
Now we are living in the underbelly of those lies. All coming onto the world stage to show us all who and what we have become. And it will get worse, before it gets better. I am grimly reminded of my joy, when I heard: ‘you are living in the time of ‘revealations’ and ran home after the visions and signs were etched into my awareness, with the mysteries unfolding and new found insights had me practically giddy! I looked up the word, ‘apocalypse’ to discover the true meaning, was: ‘The lifting or thinning of the veil’. Ahhh! To reveal the mysteries, no wonder I was connecting so many things! This is just great!
I took pictures of the ‘signs’ literally carved into the railing.
That was back around 2008 or 9.
The excitement turned into a darker glass to look through, as so many events unfolded and I watched well-meaning searcher’s turn to the very charlatans that had taken advantage of me and lie to people.
So, it took quite a bit, before I quit the hardware job and went back with passion to my soul’s work. I was doing a fair with many other vendors when a woman came up to the booth and then took a step back.
I happened to be with Robin, she asked the woman why she seemed to have an issue and the woman responded that we were “alternative health practitioners and her daughter in law was on death’s door, because of the healer that told her ‘she was healed and didn’t need to go to the doctor anymore’”…both of our jaws were on the floor. Breaking the CARDINAL RULE.
Robin pried further and asked who this healer was. Sure enough, it was one of the women who we both knew and both had experienced her lies. We continued to talk with and console the woman and then she bought a cream to comfort her daughter n law (Harmony). She called me the next week, to tell me her daughter loved the cream, was feeling better had made a turn for the better and was back with her doctor.
It reminded me of my purpose. The truth is important. Integrity is important.
Robin and I both saw in that instant, how necessary it is for those who walk the harder road, to be out there, visible and sharing the truth, the real tools that work with integrity.
It started to bring me back to life, my purpose born again, my path opened up before me.
I just needed to catch up on bills that grew instead of shrinking and all would be well. Once I did that, the book that was nearly completed, could find its way into the world. I could remind people of our spiritual inheritance, far more important than anything that turns to dust in this world.
So, when I came down with pneumonia again, I decided that I was worthy and had a purpose and needed to find an even better way to deal with the bouts that come every other year or so, all starting from the time I died and laid in a hospital bed for almost a month and caught that first terrible bout of pneumonia that almost took me out too.
I was reminded of the elderly couple that I started working on in 2002, who came to me so sick, shuffling their feet into the healing room and him, coughing and coughing…on yet another bout of anti-biotics that was not clearing up his lungs. I did hot compresses on him, every time he came in and they purchased the Breathing Easy and other blends and creams to help themselves with.
I could get him better, but unless I stayed with them and kept repeating that process for him, I could only make it better for a while. We did manage to keep them alive for another decade and a half. That is a miracle in and of itself. I love you Jean and Tom. RIP T
That grim reminder, made me look into additional healing tools again. I found the camphor crystals, but they were so expensive, it took a while to make the investment. Then the salt and clay investigation began again (I used to make bath kits with some nice salt blends in them, but stopped along the way because of all the hurdles I had to get through.)
So, returning to this method, going beyond Epsom salts and the right essential oil blend, opened my eyes once more. Adding the soaks and the new salt blends did indeed assist my healing at a far more rapid pace. It blew me away. Adding the organic tea, local honey, lemon oil in the tea all came together in the new, ‘Colds and Flu Kit’.
Then, just before the distributor party, I fell about 10 feet down off a ladder. (Yes, I should not have been up that ladder, especially at my age, but when you get used to having to do things yourself and you have little funds, you do what you got to do!) I thought I might have broken my hip. I could not move my right leg, without using my hands and arms to lift it. My head was pounding and bleeding. My arm was banging and bleeding too. I had really done it this time.
So, I had the cold and flu salts sitting on the counter, I added some additional oils and hobbled into the bathroom. Wow, the instant relief was beyond comforting, because I have no health care…and it scared the hell out of me if I am honest. I cried into that tub…both because it felt so good, relieving my fear of how bad it might have been, I realized my piriformis muscle was the true culprit of my pain, and perhaps bruised hip bone and maybe a couple cracked ribs. All of which could heal without surgery.
I got out after a long soak, in which I also was praying and meditating. I used about a whole roll on of pain master on my leg and upper thigh, hip and some on my arm, shoulder and foot, which I had also managed to twist. I applied ArcAncient’s Bone Lover Cream © on my entire body. I could walk and use my leg, but I still had to lift it with my hands to move it up, or for stairs, etc.
I kept doing this soaking process and applying the Pain Master and WiseWoman throughout the day, by the third day I was able to cut the grass.
Now we have, the Colds and Flu Kit, the Detox Kit, the Complete Detox Kit (adding the clays and blends, skin tonics and facial oils.)
In all my years of doing this, even the early years 1994 of the Breathing Easy miracles for myself and others, or the Bone Lover roll on and cream that people did not want to be without, or the Sleep Angel, WiseWoman, etc., and the people who won’t be without those either. Nothing compares to the responses and thank-yous I am getting from people who used them…my own experiences in what they do, beyond healing, beyond taking away pain, beyond healing pneumonia…is the shift I feel as the weight is lifted. As the darkness of the world falls off and I feel as if I can once again…do the work I was called so long ago to do.
So many stories now, of how a ‘shift’ has taken place, ever since someone used the salt soaks and kits.
How it clears the entire house of negative energy.
I am reminded of all that we face in this shifting world now, how the onslaught is daily. How frightened people, will pour their dark energy upon you, in jealousy, fear, or worse.
Of a world we are witnessing the dramatic changes in, especially anyone born before at least 1980, when everything started to change as I look back.
Of storms that completely wipe out islands and coasts, taking lives and livelihoods with them. Of ‘the terrible winds’ that come out of nowhere now and are getting worse.
Of the confusion being spread, news sources being questioned to the point that it is becoming more and more difficult to know what is true or fake.
The one thing that we absolutely MUST HAVE, is integrity. The more you know the truth inside your own heart, not from a book, or some ‘leader’…but deep inside your own being, your witness self, the clearer things will be, and that does not make it easy, but it helps to lead the way and have that anchor.
When I see anyone suffering, it is all I can do not to beg them to let me help them, because I know I can help that cold you can’t get rid of, or the swelling in your legs, or the tingling in your arms and hands, and on and on.
We have to keep detoxing. It is not an option. Even just soaking the feet, will help draw out the toxins and absorb over 84 different minerals, another thing most people are deficient in, like magnesium, calcium, etc. This is just counting one…of the four different salts in the blend, or the essential oil blend that we add to this perfection.
That process is called: Asorption.
This is a power we do have now. This is the control we do have.
I cannot stress the importance of this enough, and like so much of what I do, I went through the hard times, the pain and suffering, including my own death and return, to share this with you so that you in turn can share this with others. It is why we have a distributor plan at all. So more people can experience the amazing gifts of genuine healing tools.
I am also a Libra and the planetary aspects are hitting my particular chart, very hard. All three of my printers broke. My main computer has crashed and I had to deal with trying to transfer files to my laptop, which is straining from age herself. I have been able to fix my main printer in the past, taking it apart and reassembling it, several times now. This time…well…I may have put the nail in the coffin in my attempt to fix.
My car is over 10 years old now, and sometimes takes me a few minutes to manage to get the key to turn…the mechanic says it is the key tumbler or something like that.
So, giving the discounts to help share and make up for the discount (up to 40 or 50% sometimes) also makes me have to sell a lot more, to even try to make a profit. All on my own now, for over a decade. My business partner left as I stated previously, almost 15 years ago. So yes, alone.
I managed to get one of my older printers to work, (it won’t work with the main computer that crashed, something about the age of each, etc., more technical stuff that I am not good at.) But at least I can make black and white prints again of sales.
I would never have thought, with my naïve heart and mind, that people who said they were on a spiritual path of conscious evolution, would steal from me. I don’t get that, at all, because it is so contradictory to spiritual evolution and destroys the integrity necessary for that to take place. My heart wants to help people so much that thought does not enter into my brain. Of course, I have always had a healthy dose of creativity and ability to turn dreams into reality that I don’t know what it would be like, to feel different. To not come up with my own dream? My own aromatherapy blends? My own sources and tools?
I am guided to do these things.
But we live in this world, and people do take from those they feel are just gullible, or perhaps they feel they are more worthy, or that some of us don’t realize what we have so they deserve it anyway, I don’t know.
I know it’s wrong.
I can’t say I have not learned many lessons that are much deeper into the mysteries because of these trials, discernment being on top of that list.
So, to all the people asking me, where is my book?
I am trying to stay alive. While I cradled so many, wiped their tears over the years and gave them a new direction in life…the cold hard truth is we are still on this planet. It is not easy, no matter how many gifts you might have, because the world will offer plenty of challenges to develop you even more, to open you up and pour grace upon the planet. People will take advantage of you, and not give it a second thought.
Hard way to learn this fable: The Wolf and the LambAs a wolf was lapping at the head of a running brook, he spied a stray lamb paddling, at some distance, down the stream. Having made up his mind to seize her, he thought to himself how he might justify his violence.
"Villain!" said he, running up to her; "how dare you muddle the water that I am drinking!"
"Indeed," said the lamb humbly, "I do not see how I can disturb the water, since it runs from you to me, not from me to you."
"Be that as it may," replied the wolf, "it was but a year ago that you called me many ill names."
"Oh, sir!" said the lamb, trembling, "a year ago I was not born."
"Well," replied the wolf, "if it was not you, it was your father, and that is all the same. But it is no use trying to argue me out of my supper." And without another word he fell upon the poor helpless lamb and tore her to pieces.
I am not a poker player, everything I think comes right out on my very expressive face. I did manage to keep a smile and a positive attitude through much of this, and even now…but I am lying if I tell you it is easy or that I am not tired and still trying to rebuild my destroyed finances. It is like trying to climb a muddy hill, speaking of the Bahamas. Or Puerto Rico, or Houston, or New Orleans…and on and on.
Because we are in a major shift on this planet. MAJOR
The world as we once knew it, is quickly disappearing and a new one is on the horizon…but we have to get through this window of time.
All people being aspected in some cases in very exact and hard ways astrologically, are being activated for just this time.
But they are crosses. Being on that cross is what opened my eyes to see the deeper mystery of the three crosses on Golgotha, Jesus falling 3 X’s with His cross, etc., it is a LEGEND TO INFORM US OF THESE ASTROLOGICAL TIMES AND EXPERIENCES. I see it first hand with clients, whose charts I am deciphering (yes I went back to reading to assist people again, as I have been asked to ‘come back to serve’ now).
This winter and the end of this year into January, is going to be as tricky as it gets down here. We will need to detox and keep using genuine tools for healing with authentic people and everything we can to assist each other and ourselves during the coming challenges. We will need to have our integrity intact or be lost in the oncoming deluges that are coming.
…They are coming….I am only the messenger.
Thank you all for helping me to continue to do the work I came back to earth to finish. If you can help lighten my burden, it will make a great difference for me…and I thank you for your continued support.
My heartfelt thanks to all of you have remained loyal and our new friends that the universe has brought here. Thank you for being kind to me, we all need kindness.
I will surely be able to finish the book and continue to make great products, with integrity the more I find a way through these financial lessons. People who are loyal to ArcAncient, always say: “these oils are so much different/better than the others I have tried.”…yes, they are…I literally crossed over and came back, in large part…to do this so you would have access to the real deal.
You cannot buy or imitate that kind of authentic magic.
Want some more good news? At the distributor meeting/clay/salt experience, I told people that by the end of next year, the particle (Saturn) and the wave (Jupiter) would come together and this would happen, via rising above the ‘either/or’ scenario…and moving into the particle wave field, which is the higher option and becomes the dimensional shift…it is on the horizon and look at this article I found!

Jakim means, “The divine poured out over the world is in you.” The other pillar, Boaz, is the entrance into the spiritual world through death.
What is contained in the word Boaz is roughly this, “What I have hitherto sought within myself, namely strength, I shall find poured out over the whole world; in it I shall live.”
Be well my friends…A CHANGE IS HAPPENING.
you know, I have been writing a book now for quite some time, it just is not easy to try and string the words together for these experiences I am trying to share. Many of the stories involve my experiences with angels. I have already shared some of those with you.
Today I found an article, that seems like an explanation for the experience with two angels I will share below and you will see how the article and this particular story with the angels tie together ~ hopefully.
On this particular morning of the experience I am going to share, my heart was heavy-laden for many reasons, but the one that was most disheartening, was the nagging suspicion that a friend and business partner was being dishonest with me.
For some reason, my bathroom seems to be a portal of some sort, perhaps it is that way for many of us, in part due to the water as you will see in both the article and story below which is why I am sharing this with you now.
In the article, the scientists found that when water is put under extreme pressure in small spaces, the life-giving liquid can exhibit a strange fourth state known as tunneling. They go on to help define what this means here: “Basically, quantum tunneling means that a particle, or in this case a molecule, can overcome a barrier and be on both sides of it at once – or anywhere between.”
You can read the full article later, but I begin now with my own.
The Living Word of God
I sat down. The wooden shape of the seat harsh against my bum. I had both hands under my chin, contemplating the dilemma I was in when it happened.
Two large angels appeared before me with a ring in front of them like a ring of water…they pulled me out of my body through this ring and took me somehow to witness a business friend betraying me. When they pulled me up, it was as though I was being pulled through some sort of watery substance, and everything about it seemed like water, but it wasn’t wet.
I was then just as quickly back in my body. But what I witnessed was something that someone was doing behind my back, as if I was right there watching this person at the same time. This turned out to be true as time revealed it to be exactly as I had seen it.
But it was truly as if I was being pulled up through a pool of water to my senses, to my equilibrium, my ears felt as though they went through a flash of adjustment, no different than pulling my head up through a pool.
But it wasn’t wet.
The angels forced me to see something I did not want to see, because it meant realizing that someone important in my life was not only lying, but stealing from me.
When first confronted, the person immediately denied the accusation, but later relented to confirm that indeed, what I saw, had actually happened.
Some months after this happened, I was at a friend’s summer home, and was praying when the experience, floated back to me as I said the words of a prayer I say no less than once a day and have for many years now. That prayer is Psalm 91.
I often say this prayer while I am working on people, so I know the words by heart.
But on this day, the words as they often do, would take on a whole new meaning.
"She who dwells in the shelter of the Most High
Will rest in the shadow of the Almighty
And I will say of the Lord
He is my refuge and my fortress,
My God in whom I trust
Surely He save you from the fowler’s snare
And from the deadly pestilence
He will cover you with His feathers
And under His ‘Wings you will find refuge’ "
Side note: Every time I say these words, I can see the sphenoid process in anatomy, which is also known as ‘The Great Wing’.
I also see a Throne of God here, but I am digressing.
So, I say this prayer and always imagine my own throne, and the wings that God has designed for me in this vessel/body.
The Psalm continues:
"His faithfulness will be your shield and your rampart.
You will not fear the terror of night
Nor the arrow that flies by day
Nor the pestilence that stalks in the darkness
Nor the plague that destroys at midday.
A thousand may fall at your side
Ten thousand at your right hand
But it will not come near you
You will only observe with your eyes
And see the punishment of the wicked.
If you make the most High your refuge
Than no harm shall befall you
No disaster will come near your tent (intent)
For He will command His angels
To watch over you
They will lift you up
So that you will not strike your foot against a stone."
(I will have the rest of the prayer at the end of this article.)
Those words “They will lift you up” now opened up to me - along with the realization that, indeed, those words were real. They are not just words, but LIVING WORDS.
For indeed, two great Angels, had lifted me up through that water-like portal.
Now, I will tell you that when I died, everything I experienced was the same way, now recollecting the two together. We walked, but I didn’t necessarily use my legs, I saw, but not with my two eyes, but with a singular hidden-spiritual eye, which I now know to be the third eye. All of the sensory experiences, were fully experiential in a different way, but without the earth senses as we know them.
In recounting the experiences together with a friend of mine, who is also a spiritual coach, she very quickly said that is the Holy Spirit; it is the Fire that doesn’t burn.
This just blew me away. Maybe it seems obvious to you, but it was not so obvious for me to put this all together until that moment.
I am now trying to recapture and to share to the best of my ability, this amazing truth that was revealed to me, as so much is being revealed during this time of REVEALATIONS.
When the apostle’s wrote; ‘This is the Living Word of God’, it is because they know they were actually LIVING THE WORD OF GOD.
“The bush, burning but unconsumed”.
I believe, it is because, EL, is in charge here on EArth. (In this daemonsion or dimension.)
And, as I have explained, many times now, EL, is God, or Saturn/Lord of the Rings, and also, EL-e ment, is God mind, and the obvious, ELements, earth, air, fire and water.
How we experience them on the planet earth, is all about the sensory experience.
But in the 5th world, the experience is different, and the senses are there, but they do not consume, because the Holy Spirit is inconsumable and eternal.
Here is link and the full article cut and pasted, as I came across it today.
An article about the fourth stage of water.
Bizarre fourth state of water discovered
Michael Franco April 26, 2016
A sample of beryl and an illustration that shows the strange shape water molecules take when found in the mineral's cage-like channels (Credit: ORNL/Jeff Scovil).
You already know that water can have three states of matter: solid, liquid and gas. But scientists at the Oak Ridge National Lab (ORNL) have discovered that when it's put under extreme pressure in small spaces, the life-giving liquid can exhibit a strange fourth state known as tunneling.
The water under question was found in super-small six-sided channels in the mineral beryl, which forms the basis for the *gems aquamarine and emerald. The channels measure only about five atoms across and function basically as cages that can each trap one water molecule. What the researchers found was that in this incredibly tight space, the water molecule exhibited a characteristic usually only seen at the much smaller quantum level, called tunneling.
Basically, quantum tunneling means that a particle, or in this case a molecule, can overcome a barrier and be on both sides of it at once – or anywhere between. Think of rolling a ball down one side of a hill and up another. The second hill is the barrier and the ball would only have enough energy to climb it to the height from which it was originally dropped. If the second hill was taller, the ball wouldn't be able to roll over it. That's classical physics. Quantum physics and the concept of tunneling means the ball could jump to the other side of the hill with ease or even be found inside the hill – or on both sides of the hill at once.
"In classical physics the atom cannot jump over a barrier if it does not have enough energy for this," ORNL instrument scientist Alexander Kolesnikov tells Gizmag – Kolesnikov is lead author on a paper detailing the discovery published in the April 22 issue of the journal Physical. But in the case of the beryl-trapped water his team studied, the water molecules acted according to quantum – not classical – laws of physics.
"This means that the oxygen and hydrogen atoms of the water molecule are 'delocalized' and therefore simultaneously present in all six symmetrically equivalent positions in the channel at the same time," says Kolesnikov. "It's one of those phenomena that only occur in quantum mechanics and has no parallel in our everyday experience."
By using neutron-scattering experiments, the researchers were able to see that the water molecules spread themselves into two corrugated rings, one inside the other. At the center of the ring, the hydrogen atom, which is one third of the water molecule, took on six different orientations at one time. "Tunneling among these orientations means the hydrogen atom is not located at one position, but smeared out in a ring shape," says a report in the online news journal Physics.
"This discovery represents a new fundamental understanding of the behavior of water and the way water utilizes energy," says ORNL co-author Lawrence Anovitz. "It's also interesting to think that those water molecules in your aquamarine or emerald ring – blue and green varieties of beryl – are undergoing the same quantum tunneling we've seen in our experiments."
Because the ORNL team discovered this new property of water but not exactly why and how it works, Anovitz also says that the finding is sure to get scientists working to uncover the mechanism that leads to the phenomenon.
Kolesnikov adds that the discovery could have implications wherever water is found in extremely tight spaces such as in cell membranes or inside carbon nanotubes. The following video from ORNL provides more details on the discovery.
The chessboard is made up of 64 squares on a magic box of 8 x 8 black and white squares. This creates a dimensional field, and it is also known as water. Water is also a hidden reference alchemically to people.
We are indeed made up of over 80% water and so is the surface of the earth.
In chapter I of my book, I detail this in the comparison of the body/temple.
Jesus changing water into wine as the very first miracle.
WE ARE THE LIVING WORD OF GOD…WE WERE SPOKEN INTO EXISTENCE IN GENESIS.
Psalm 91 continued:
"…You will tread upon the lion and the cobra
You will trample the Great Lion and the Serpent
(Leo and Scorpio on the Fixed Cross of the three crosses of the zodiac, your 3rd and 2nd Chakra's)
Because she loves me says the Lord,
I will rescue her
I will protect her for she acknowledges my name
She will call upon me and I will answer her
I will be with her in trouble
I will deliver her and honor her
With long life will I satisfy her and show her my salvation.
We are in the critical time, when we MUST BRING FORTH, that which we came to give birth to, to midwife, to be born through us on this planet. No more waiting.
If something irritates you where you are or in what you do, be the change agent, or find those who will help you give birth to that place. Which character are you in the play? The idea? The generator? The structure/organizer? The motivator? The activator? The person who puts it into play, action?
To answer some of these questions, I recall one of my angel visits, and that life-lesson that changed my own life completely.
It was at my third workshop with Jeannie Rose and Barbara Bobo, and some other wonderful teachers.
We were all sitting around the table, up in Barbara’s barn (about 27 women or so).
Jeannie had just finished teaching about Helichrysum… (helio’s ‘sun’ and chrysum ‘to anoint’) and she was distilling Geranium (Pelargonium Graviolens) and describing the healing properties. Among the many healing property’s, she started to describe the healing powers for female internal female sexual organs.
I was a gasp.
As she described the properties…I couldn’t help myself, I said out loud, ‘but you can’t actually heal the ORGAN, THAT IS INTERNAL?”
(I was thinking to myself, I can understand relieving pain, helping breathing, headaches, sinus…all of that made easy sense to me. But not an internal organ?
I already had a hysterectomy…which meant that I would not be able to heal, it was already too late for me.) I recoiled
As I said that out loud, about half a dozen women turned and looked at me, and said: “Yes, you can!”….
I began to shake as the tears were fighting their way out of me…I got up and went outside...I began heaving and sobbing.
I was so hurt.
How could this be? How could something over 5,000 years old be available to heal me naturally? Yet…NO ONE WAS TALKINGA BOUT THIS?
What? (This was back in 1994)
I had taken other herbal classes, etc., my first being back in the early 80’s, with the Grand Dame of Herbalism, Hannah Kroeger.
But never did I completely realize that I could heal internal organs, for real.
As I sobbed…a light came upon me, just like the sun coming up over the horizon. It was the Angel Gabriel…I was told…in a very gentle voice…”Gloria, it might be too late for you, but it won’t be too late for you to help a lot of other women”…
I was still so hurt…I objected…at first, but in a matter of seconds, all of those emotions swirled through me…and I accepted.
I said, “Okay, if that is what you want me to do God”…
And I put myself back together and went back into the class, slinking around the back and finding my chair
I did, and after a bit, a woman, “Linda Honeycutt-LeGrand” from South Carolina, walked over to me holding a paper to her chest.
She said to me, “Miss Gloria, when you came back in, the angel Gabriel, was holding you, and I drew this picture of him, and wanted to share this with you, if you accept”…
It was a beautiful drawing of the Angel.
She saw him with me. I was witnessed. (This same woman would witness with me several things that are extremely profound and which I discuss in my book)…
Anyway…that was it.
That blend, became ‘WiseWoman’…because of all the wise women who I sat with that day, the healers of the old. We have been carrying this energy for lifetimes.
But, it was time, to bring it back out.
It is time to stop calling our life giving ability ‘the curse’…when it is our POWER.
So, that is a blend of 13 different oils.
WiseWoman was made for endometriosis and menopause, but it has such strong anti-inflammatory and analgesic properties, it is really good (rolling it on the area) to relieve pain and swelling too.
So, thank you.
That is the story of WiseWoman (c), of which you are ONE.
What is Helichrysum oil? Let us look a bit closer:

If we look just at the colour, that beautiful sun spinning on the tops of their green stems, we see it relates to the sun. The colour yellow, is associated with the 'Solar Plexus' chakra, with FIRE, digestion and what we can 'stomach', our ego, and our 'gut instinct'...
It represent the liver, which is our major clean up organ...helping us to heal wounds and to regenerate.
So, in cases of IN-FLAMATION, we want something that relates to FIRE, and this is one of the best
to reduce inflammation and deliver amazing pain relief, IMMEDIATELY USING ESSENTIAL OIL, BUT MOST SPECIFICALLY IN THE WISEWOMAN © BLEND FROM ARCANCIENT, it contains 13 essential oils in the magical blend as it was given by Archangel Gabrielle, to share and help ‘a lot of other women/people’.
Is it only for women? NO, it is for anyone who suffers from pain and inflammation. It has provided almost instant relief for sciatica sufferers, carpal tunnel, and of course, neck and shoulders that are tight and sore, also find that wonderful relief, just from rolling it on and massaging into the skin. It is simply lovely.
Obviously, it also does wonders for Endometriosis sufferers too, which it was initially created for, simply roll on the abdomen and back, massage into the area affected, and without even getting out of bed, you can alleviate that pain and discomfort, and start the day on a much better note.
So, if you have swelling, pain, etc., this is your go to blend.
In the meantime, you are naturally attending to your own essence, your ‘esse’…which of course, means to be or to exist, so where are you? Where do you come alive?
As the stone is rolled out, that Christed being is baptized into the world anew, after ‘dying to this world’…so what are you prepared to leave behind that no longer works for you?
The 3rd Chakra also relates to anger…all that fire trapped inside the body, looking for a way out…and the body feels that distress and sends out the body’s natural chemicals to help heal and protect the body.
I am also a believer, that depression, is ‘trapped information’ that is so depressed back into the body/system, it weighs u down. The same as a gift, that is stored in the vault of your being, bring out that gift. It is life-giving and so as it happens, I can look back and see how amazing a blend is, much more so than its original design, but the Angelic and Devic Livingdoms, desire to help us, to mid-wife our beautiful spirit and that unique signature that is ours alone.
Once, that stone is finally rolled away from the crypt, and we birth into this world, an anointed light-being, and the river of life flows through us again, and we bless the world with the MUSE-IC of our soul. Only you have that blue-print.
Once we give birth, to the dream that birthed us, we move back into the flow with new life and our evolutionary being realizes itself…this brings true awareness. Awe of RA, aw Ra ness.
The other major problem we face on this planet, is the extra-ordinary amounts of pollutants and heavy metals…Helichrysum is ONE OF THE BEST DETOXIFYING OILS, helping to cleanse the system.
So light up your world, anoint that essence within you, and COME ALIVE, WE HAVE BEEN WAITING LIFETIMES FOR YOU!
So, get your WiseWoman Roll on here: https: //www.arcoftheancients.com/store/p9/WiseWoman_Roll_On_.33_oz.html#/

If you need specific blends made up, all you need to do is contact us, we will be happy to help you!
I am giving birth to my dreams, ARE YOU? WHY DID YOU COME HERE? I pray, meditate, walk in nature and don't avoid going through a hard tine that I know will alchemize my being...we have to bring our light, into the darkness, to see the light is already there, waiting for us all along, the Black Madonna...Black Wholes...same thing, the creational matrix.
These blends are made to help you do the same, it is one of the reasons I came here at this time...but now, I am off to sing a little jazz and blues...
Over the years, we have been perfecting the blend that helped digestive issues, heartburn, etc. We started with Re-Member, which originally was for Alzheimer’s and ADD, etc., to calm and focus the mind and it turned out to also be great to help the other heater/fire chakra, the belly.
We have since come up with the blend that has done nothing less than perform miracles on digestive issues, including, the story of someone that had a mass show up on their pancreas in X Ray, and using this new formula, dissolved it…yes, it is gone.
Of course, other things were done by the individual, eating healthy, etc to assist in creating this healing circuit, but the blend definitely went a long way to help. So why?
What is that Blend? HAPPY BELLY ©
The other day, I happened upon a youtube that talked about using ‘Turpentine’ to heal the liver.
What she recommended was the turpentine you have to special order and what is
the major chemical constituent? Terpenes.
So, I thought about that. There are many terpenes of various types (see following info) that make up essential oils.
Over the past 25 years, teaching about Frankincense, I often hear people say: ‘That smells like turpentine!’….well yes, it does have terpenes.
And many other healing chemical constituents, but we are focusing on just one aspect today.
First off, look at that word, ter-pene, or ter-pine.
What other essential oil has lots of terpenes? Pine, major constituent, L-Pinene.
Of course, that comes from pine oil and both produce sap that are used.
So, we have the Pine Cone….which is a fractal.
It is also at the door of Vatican Court. Yes, a great big old pine cone. Why?
A fractal is self-replicating.
In mathematics a fractal is an abstract object used to describe and simulate naturally occurring objects. Artificially created fractals commonly exhibit similar patterns at increasingly small scales. It is also known as expanding symmetry or evolving symmetry. If the replication is exactly the same at every scale, it is called a self-similar pattern. An example of this is the Menger sponge. Fractals can also be nearly the same at different levels. This latter pattern is illustrated in small magnifications of the Mandelbrot set] Fractals also include the idea of a detailed pattern that repeats itself
Now to this, let us add the ‘PINE-AL’ GLAND. Remember, EL or AL, is Gd of the Old Testament and is either the root or suffix to many words, like EL-e-ment or AL-Chem-y. El Shaddai, or Ang-EL. EL-ect, etc.
The pineal gland is a small, pinecone shaped gland of the endocrine system. A structure of the diencephalon of the brain, the pineal gland produces the hormone melatonin. Melatonin influences sexual development and sleep-wake cycles. The pineal gland is composed of cells called pinealocytes and cells of the nervous system called glial cells. The pineal gland connects the endocrine system with the nervous system in that it converts nerve signals from the sympathetic system of
The peripheral nervous system into hormone signals.
Over time, calcium deposits build-up in the pineal and its accumulation can lead to calcification in the elderly.
Terpenes (/ˈtɜːrpiːn/) are a large and diverse class of organic compounds, produced by a variety of plants, particularly conifers, and by some insects such as termites or swallowtail butterflies, which emit terpenes from their osmeteria. They often have a strong odor and may protect the plants that produce them by deterring herbivores and by attracting predators and parasites of herbivores. The difference between terpenes and terpenoids is that terpenes are hydrocarbons, whereas terpenoids contain additional functional groups.
They are the major components of resin, and of turpentine produced from resin. The name "terpene" is derived from the word "turpentine". In addition to their roles as end-products in many organisms, terpenes are major biosynthetic building blocks within nearly every living creature. Steroids, for example, are derivatives of the triterpene squalene.
When terpenes are modified chemically, such as by oxidation or rearrangement of the carbon skeleton, the resulting compounds are generally referred to as terpenoids. Some authors will use the term terpene to include all terpenoids. Terpenoids are also known as isoprenoids.
Terpenes and terpenoids are the primary constituents of the essential oils of many types of medicinal plants and flowers. Essential oils are used widely as fragrances in perfumery, and in medicine and alternative medicines such as aromatherapy. Synthetic variations and derivatives of natural terpenes and terpenoids also greatly expand the variety of aromas used in perfumery and flavors used in food additives. Vitamin A is a terpenoid.
Higher amounts of terpenes are released by trees in warmer weather, acting as a natural form of cloud seeding. The clouds reflect sunlight, allowing the forest to regulate its temperature. The aroma and flavor of hops comes, in part, from sesquiterpenes (mainly alpha-humulene and beta-caryophyllene), which affect beer quality. Terpenes are also major constituents of Cannabis sativa plants, which contain at least 120 identified compounds.
So, you see how complex this becomes? This is just one aspect of over 20 oils, which the Happy Belly, mixed to perfection provides. For all stomach ailments, esophageal, Crohn's, Acid Reflux, heartburn, etc.
There is so much more to add to this, but we will save that for another day, when we go deeper into what chemical constituents are and give further explanations.
Terpene, chemical compound, Alternative Title: terpenoid
camphene, limonene , mycene, phellandrene, pinene
alpha terpenene, azulene, beta bisabolene, beta carpphyll, farmasene, germacene, sabinene, abietic acid , lycopene, Isoprene
Terpenes are derived biosynthetically from units of isoprene, which has the molecular formula C5H8. The basic molecular formula of terpenes are multiples of that, (C5H8)n where n is the number of linked isoprene units. This is called the biogenetic isoprene rule or the C5 rule. In 1953, the Croatian chemist Leopold Ružička discovered that the isoprene units may be linked together "head to tail" to form linear chains or they may be arranged to form rings. One can consider the isoprene unit as one of nature's common building blocks.
Isoprene itself does not undergo the building process, but rather activated forms, isopentenyl pyrophosphate (IPP or also isopentenyl diphosphate) and dimethylallyl pyrophosphate (DMAPP or also dimethylallyl diphosphate), are the components in the biosynthetic pathway. IPP is formed from acetyl-CoA via the intermediacy of mevalonic acid in the HMG-CoA reductase pathway. An alternative, totally unrelated biosynthesis pathway of IPP is known in some bacterial groups and the plastids of plants, the so-called MEP(2-Methyl-D-erythritol-4-phosphate)-pathway, which is initiated from C5-sugars. In both pathways, IPP is isomerized to DMAPP by the enzyme isopentenyl pyrophosphate isomerase.
As chains of isoprene units are built up, the resulting terpenes are classified sequentially by size as hemiterpenes, monoterpenes, sesquiterpenes, diterpenes, sesterterpenes, triterpenes, and tetraterpenes. Essentially, they are all synthesized by terpene synthase.
Second- or third-instar caterpillars of Papilio glaucus emit terpenes from their osmeterium.
Terpenes may be classified by the number of isoprene units in the molecule; a prefix in the name indicates the number of terpene units needed to assemble the molecule.
Hemiterpenes consist of a single isoprene unit. Isoprene itself is considered the only hemiterpene, but oxygen-containing derivatives such as prenol and isovaleric acid are hemiterpenoids.
Monoterpenes consist of two isoprene units and have the molecular formula C10H16. Examples of monoterpenes and monoterpenoids include geraniol, terpineol (present in lilacs), limonene (present in citrus fruits), myrcene (present in hops), linalool (present in lavender) or pinene (present in pine trees). Iridoids derive from monoterpenes.
Sesquiterpenes consist of three isoprene units and have the molecular formula C15H24. Examples of sesquiterpenes and sesquiterpenoids include humulene, farnesenes, farnesol. (The sesqui- prefix means one and a half.)
Diterpenes are composed of four isoprene units and have the molecular formula C20H32. They derive from geranylgeranyl pyrophosphate. Examples of diterpenes and diterpenoids are cafestol, kahweol, cembrene and taxadiene (precursor of taxol). Diterpenes also form the basis for biologically important compounds such as retinol, retinal, and phytol.
Sesterterpenes, terpenes having 25 carbons and five isoprene units, are rare relative to the other sizes. (The sester- prefix means half to three, i.e. two and a half.) An example of a sesterterpenoid is geranylfarnesol.
Triterpenes consist of six isoprene units and have the molecular formula C30H48. The linear triterpene squalene, the major constituent of shark liver oil, is derived from the reductive coupling of two molecules of farnesyl pyrophosphate. Squalene is then processed biosynthetically to generate either lanosterol or cycloartenol, the structural precursors to all the steroids.
Sesquarterpenes are composed of seven isoprene units and have the molecular formula C35H56. Sesquarterpenes are typically microbial in their origin. Examples of sesquarterpenoids are ferrugicadiol and tetraprenylcurcumene.
Tetraterpenes contain eight isoprene units and have the molecular formula C40H64. Biologically important tetraterpenoids include the acyclic lycopene, the monocyclic gamma-carotene, and the bicyclic alpha- and beta-carotenes.
Polyterpenes consist of long chains of many isoprene units. Natural rubber consists of polyisoprene in which the double bonds are cis. Some plants produce a polyisoprene with trans double bonds, known as gutta-percha.
Norisoprenoids, such as the C13-norisoprenoids 3-oxo-α-ionol present in Muscat of Alexandria leaves and 7,8-dihydroionone derivatives, such as megastigmane-3,9-diol and 3-oxo-7,8-dihydro-α-ionol found in Shiraz leaves (both grapes in the species Vitis vinifera) or wine (responsible for some of the spice notes in Chardonnay), can be produced by fungal peroxidases or glycosidases.
Terpenes have properties as chemicals in food, cosmetics, pharmaceutical and biotechnology industries. Chemical synthesis of terpenes can be problematic because of their complex structure, and plants produce small amounts of terpenes, making it difficult, time-consuming and expensive to extract them directly from plants. The genomes of 17 plant species contain genes that encode terpenoid synthase enzymes imparting terpenes with their basic structure, and cytochrome P450s that modify this basic structure.
Research into terpenes has found that many of them possess qualities that make them useful active ingredients as part of natural agricultural pesticides. Terpenes are used by termites of the Nasutitermitinae family to ward off predatory insects, through the use of a specialized mechanism called a fontanellar gun.
Terpene, any of a class of hydrocarbons occurring widely in plants and animals and empirically regarded as built up from isoprene, a hydrocarbon consisting of five carbon atoms attached to eight hydrogen atoms (C5H8). The term is often extended to the terpenoids, which are oxygenated derivatives of these hydrocarbons.
Biological formation of the terpenes occurs by the combination of two molecules of acetic acid to give mevalonic acid (C6H12O4) and conversion of the latter to isopentenyl pyrophosphate, which contains the five-carbon isoprene skeleton. Further transformations of the isopentenyl compound yield the true terpenes and the terpenoids.
The true terpenes are usually grouped according to the number of isoprene (C5H8) units in the molecule: monoterpenes (C10H16) contain two such units; sesquiterpenes (C15H24), three; diterpenes (C20H32), four; triterpenes (C30H48), six; and tetraterpenes (C40H64), eight. Rubber and gutta-percha are polyterpenes in which 1,000–5,000 isoprene units are joined in a long chain. Monoterpenes, sesquiterpenes, and diterpenes are abundant in the essential oils of plants: turpentine contains several monoterpenes, and the rosin acids are diterpenes. Vitamin A is another important diterpene. The triterpene squalene, obtainable from shark-liver oil, may be converted to cholesterol and many other steroids. The carotenoid pigments are the best known tetraterpenes.
Terpenes are a large and diverse class of organic compounds, produced by a variety of plants, particularly conifers, though also by some insects such as termites or swallowtail butterflies, which emit terpenes from their osmeteria. They are often strong-smelling. They may protect the plants that produce them by deterring herbivores and by attracting predators and parasites of herbivores.
Essential oil, highly volatile substance isolated by a physical process from an odoriferous plant of a single botanical species. The oil bears the name of the plant from which it is derived; for example, rose oil or peppermint oil. Such oils were called essential because they were thought to represent the very essence of odour and flavour.
The first records of essential oils come from ancient India, Persia, and Egypt; and both Greece and Rome conducted extensive trade in odoriferous oils and ointments with the countries of the Orient. Most probably these products were extracts prepared by placing flowers, roots, and leaves in fatty oils. In most ancient cultures, odorous plants or their resinous products were used directly. Only with the coming of the golden age of Arab culture was a technique developed for the distillation of essential oils. The Arabs were the first to distill ethyl alcohol from fermented sugar, thus providing a new solvent for the extraction of essential oils in place of the fatty oils that had probably been used for several millennia.
The knowledge of distillation spread to Europe during the Middle Ages, and isolation of essential oils by distillation was described during the 11th to 13th centuries. These distilled products became a specialty of the European medieval pharmacies, and by about 1500 the following products had been introduced: oils of cedarwood, calamus, costus, rose, rosemary, spike, incense, turpentine, sage, cinnamon, benzoin, and myrrh. The alchemical theories of the Swiss physician and alchemist Paracelsus played a role in stimulating physicians and pharmacists to seek essential oils from aromatic leaves, woods, and roots.
In some oils one or only a few components predominate: thus oil of wintergreen contains about 98 percent of methyl salicylate; orange oil, about 90 percent of d-limonene; bois de rose, 90 percent of linalool; and cassia, up to 95 percent of cinnamaldehyde. In most oils there is a mixture of anywhere from a few dozen to several hundred individual compounds. Trace components are very important, since they give the oil a characteristic and natural odour.

The Universe is a Garden of Secret Wonders.
“What I tell you in darkness, that speak ye in light: and what ye hear in the ear, that preach ye upon the housetops.” Mat 10:27
“If thou love to hear, thou shalt receive understanding: And if thou bow thine ear, thou shalt be wise.” ~Sirach 6:33
The Universe is a garden of secret wonders. If you look, at any minute she will part her skirt, pull you into her rich soil and whisper secrets to help you find your way home.
At every turn there stand sentries, guardians of the gates and banshee’s to flood you into the tangled and odiferous bowels of despair and torment; lest you lose sight of the higher and noble calling, the skeleton key that will allow passage.
This is the majestic texture of our world, often in plain sight the grand design arouses the inner visionary in us who knows the way~ if that voice can rise above the din, the decadent and the superfluous sheath that is every bit as real as every layer beneath and below, above and beyond this dimension. To negate one is to negate all, to negate the very self that yearns to be found, rescued but above all, heard and loved. Love is a complicated thing and at the same time, like the universe she created, she is a marvel so simple one has only to sit inside her listening and ever present watchful embrace and let her carry you into bliss.
But here…here is where you may find yourself sleeping….and once again wake on some precipitous and craggy cliff, with only the crisp air as company, while the mind gallops off in search of itself, and the heart of all that matters waits for its consort to catch up and surrender to her embrace once again.
I am a girl born on the seventh day of the seventh month, one of seven children and whose name begins with the seventh letter in the English alphabet. My world has never been one as simple as it appeared to be to others. In youth, I wondered why I must leave the richness of my forested mind, for the more superficial world everyone else wanted to play with. All of it thrust upon you like a strange car wreck, or an obvious game I had to wake up in, but what would it take? What special code or learning must I figure out to unlock the treasure map, and have everyone take off their masks, and congratulate me for unraveling the grand play too?
I tell you this in complete honesty.
For the longest time, I peered into eyes, wondered what part of me was not good enough, to be taken in to the grand illusion that everyone was playing. Why did they act as if no one else knew the secret world that was hidden in the veins of the leaves that danced around us, mesmerizing with brocades of changing colours like swimming chameleons inhabiting the world?
When would everyone else talk about the ‘big people’ who are all lit up but whose appearance only silhouetted the back drop of the canvas my mind fell into? Didn’t everyone entertain them and wasn’t it one of the most fulfilling camaraderie’s to experience those who stood tall as trees pour their genuine love in mutual praise as if every choir song wrote itself from this cause?
I thought surely that since I had such a tendency for mischief and finding my way into odd adventures that something then must be wrong with me. Other people somehow weren’t thinking like me, but maybe I was just bad. I was so bad, that no-one was allowed to share this secret that existed in every page I turned and followed on my adventurous sojourn through life.
Who would discuss the fairy fields I found as surely others did too? Who else knew about the circle around the trees in the woods that shifted and sprinkled star dust? Who else entertained the large beings of light that would appear after I prayed which opened the vaults of heaven? The smiles on their faces and the glint in their eyes infusing me with love and contentment, letting me know that they enjoyed watching me entertain them with my singing and dancing?
Surely once I got one more A, one more gold star, finished first in one more contest, then….then the game would open its doors and the cast members would reveal their true identity.
The sad thing is that one risks losing their freedoms just for mentioning the world that is real and more alive and vibrant than the march of superfluous reality that seems to have seduced the masses into plastic images and celluloid dreams, of contorting the deep forest into packages of exactness whose only hope is to replicate the new and improved image being craftily lighted and cascaded around their thirsty souls.
What a webbing; all sticky and sweetly perfumed again with some replication of the natural bounty
that would adorn the temple of our beings with layers of truth; the kind that marches down the halls and lights up the senses with the purpose of being alive.
Why be here at all if the care isn’t taken to wonder? To take the train on the dark night and wake in the valley of the gods who have been coaxing and guiding us all along?
This is my world; it is as it has always been an adventure of strange beliefs and hidden knowledge. I feel like Moses in the desert, parting the red sea of life; opening the book one living word, one page at a time and learning the meaning I somehow already know.
There is magic afoot, it is under every stone and shimmering on the waters….it is dancing on our rooftops and howling in the wind. It creaks down the halls and breaks down silence until it spills loudly into the room and stands between the moments of disbelief like a lighthouse forming from the mist and gloom.
I am yanked back into the strange reality like a naughty schoolgirl, made to play the game with scolding eyes and sometimes worse; while the mystery drips from my veins and disappears into the
cracks, waiting for me to rescue the life I was born to live and reveal.
This is my attempt to take you in and reveal what sorcerers have been burned alive for sharing, madmen have caught shards of along the way, and stories that hold power have hidden in their pages, if one learns how to listen ~ and has the eyes to see.
They stand all around us, sometime alone and more powerfully together; our guardians are rivers of wisdom who symbiotically breathe into us life and we exhale the breath they need. We need them, they need us. Excitedly I crept into the canopy of autumnal glory; fiery reds and umbers crisply painting the baby blue skies and the lemon sun drizzling down in shafts of warm surrender. My heart beating in rhythm, my breath, dotting the air with invisible ink, as the forest shifted and turned, the secret panels opened. It is then, that Her voice grew louder. The voice of the earth, called by many names, but I know her now, as Mary Magdalene.
Each cracking branch underfoot becomes a lever to the magic code of the great Cathedral.
Can you see? Can you hear? Maybe you forgot how to listen? This book is written in my attempt to help you hear that voice, that voice that will help with your own…

Essential oils are made up of different chemical compositions.
This brief article will touch on one of them~ Esters.
Essential oils such as Lavender, Geranium, Bergamot, Clary Sage and Petitgrain have higher ester contents in their chemical composition.
In chemistry, an ester is a chemical compound derived from an acid in which at least one –OH group is replaced by an –O–alkyl group. Usually, esters are derived from a carboxylic acid and an alcohol.
The German chemist Leopold Gmelin was the first to give the name Ester to molecules with the –COO functional group.
Glycerides, which are fatty acid esters of glycerol, are important esters in biology, being one of the main classes of lipids, and making up the bulk of animal fats and vegetable oils. Esters with low molecular weight are commonly used as fragrances and found in essential oils and pheromones. Phosphoesters form the backbone of DNA molecules. Nitrate esters, such as nitroglycerin, are known for their explosive properties, while polyesters are important plastics, with monomers linked by ester moieties.
Esters are formed from alcohols and acids, and are named after both their original molecules with the alcohols dropping the "ol" and gaining an "yl" and the acids dropping the "ic" and gaining an "ate".
The esters found in essential oils are normally very fragrant and tend to be fruity and their therapeutic effects include being sedative and antispasmodic. Some esters also have anti-fungal and anti-microbial properties - like the anti-fungal properties in geranium oil.
The most well-known ester must be linalyl acetate, which is found in lavender and clary sage.
Even though, a chemist may identify (most) of the chemical components that nature combines to make up the oils, using gas chromatography for instance, the best chemist CANNOT reproduce an identical oil, using the exact same chemical proportions. This replicated oil will not have the same therapeutic effect as the natural and pure essential oil. Science cannot replicate the brilliant mystery of Mother Nature, using the best minds and advanced technology available.
Lavender essential oil, for instance, can be used to successfully treat burns, as was first re-discovered by René-Maurice Gattefossé, a French chemist who used lavender essential oil when he suffered severe burns in his lab in 1910.
Of this he wrote, “In my personal experience, after a laboratory explosion covered me with burning substances which I extinguished by rolling on a grassy lawn, both my hands were covered with a rapidly developing gas gangrene. Just one rinse with lavender essence stopped the ‘gasification of the tissue’. This treatment was followed by profuse sweating and healing began the next day.” Gattefossé’s Aromatherapy, 1937.
But even if the best chemist using all the correct chemical components, such as borneol, terpineol, lavandulol geraniol and linolol, they would NOT have the secret formula that could successfully treat burns.
In fact, you cannot make up lavender essential oil in a laboratory, you will not have an oil that can successfully treat burns, reduce inflammation or calm you down, the way that true lavender oil can. You could even cause harm.
According to Jeannie Rose, it is the Lavendula Angustifolia that is grown in higher altitudes that has the best medicine that is distilled into the lovely and fragrant essential oil that most Aromatherapist suggest for use.
Essential oils are Organic compounds and are all hydrocarbon molecules.
These are further classified as terpenes, alcohols, esters, aldehydes, ketones and phenols, oxides, etc.
Here we can take a closer look at esters, for instance:

That time of the year again, sniffing, sneezing, sore throat, runny nose, watery eyes, and for some that leads to bronchitis and even pneumonia, for the elderly it can mean the end of a long life that had too many antibiotics ingested and they no longer work.
For me, it can and does lead to bronchial pneumonia ever since I laid in the hospital for almost a month when I was given my Last Rites, swam in the Love and Light of Gd and walked with Jesus in the garden. It is almost impossible not to catch Pneumonia.
I don’t have tubes coming out of my nose and mouth, stomach and sides right now. Heavy lungs trying to breathe through narrowing airwaves is enough. So when I woke up with a sore throat last Monday night, it had already found a nice spot to grow.
Luckily for me, I was introduced to REAL AROMATHERAPY decades ago, through Linda Green, who was bringing in the GRAND DAME OF AROMATHERAPY HERSELF, THE WOMAN WHO BROUGHT IT BACK IN THE U.S., JEANNIE ROSE.
She introduced me to, Ravensara. In class, Jeannie told us that lab test results, showed Ravensara Aromatica was FAR SUPERIOR TO TEA TREE, (melaleuca alternifolia) in killing viruses. When I inhaled the scent, it immediately brought me into a Dickensian scene around a fireplace, drinking hot tea and honey and memories of the cotton sock my mother used to pin around my neck when I had strip throat. My mother was always so kind when we were sick, we were even allowed to lay on the couch!
I immediately added Ravensara to my growing library of oils, purchased from Jeannie. I tried other oils, NONE OF THEM EVEN CAME CLOSE. But she is a purist. She is also an incredibly knowledgeable wise woman. As usual, whenever Gd wants me to learn something, He sends me the very best teachers from Her school.
So, when my niece who was working for me in the first healing center I built (literally from the ground up after being told: “if you build it they will come”), even though we were in the middle of nowhere, 1/2 hour to the closest
pharmacy, when...she starts having an asthma attack and she does not have her inhaler!
Luckily I had my growing pharmacy of essential oils out. (Gd prepares me so well, knowing me, lol) I was instantly put to the test and mixed the oils, grabbing Ravensara first. we began inhalation and application and very quickly she calmed down and was able to breathe again. She was shocked it worked too!
So, I began blending my fist aroma blends, using Ravensara Aromatica. There is Ravensara and there is Ravintsara, but that is the tale of two Ravens, I will write about later. It was almost a murder! (a murder of crows, lol).
I used it myself for my own colds and the pneumonia that sometimes would take hold of me again, being susceptible to it after coming down with such a deadly case. I began mixing it and other blends for people and it helped them too. One woman called me for my ‘breathing blend’ again, and I did not have the bottle and dropper available, I was out. So I looked in my dishwasher for something, and there were the roll on vials from perfume I used to by, that were just cleaned.
I told her I did not have the dropper bottle, but the roll on bottles were just cleaned and I could use that if it was okay, she could just roll it on then. At this point, I was selling the blends that I had adjusted and improved upon, while continuing my aromatherapy, herbal education. This woman called me back a couple days later. (I was a little nervous, didn’t it work okay?) She wanted to tell me, how much she liked using it in the roll on, better than the dropper. THE ROLL ON APPLICATION WAS BORN for essential oil applications.
Today, I woke up without any wheezing, no coughing, I can breathe completely clear and my fever is gone. I used one bottle each day for the first three days. Then about 1/2 bottle after that since Monday. Even the little remnants of the virus that crawled deep into the alveoli in my lungs are now gone. One week. I am healed from this natural medicine I found decades ago now. I am eternally grateful to be guided by Queen Magdalene, who is the Patron Saint of Aromatherapy. (If someone does not know this, WELL...an aromatherapist in the wise woman sense, which you need to make elixirs from Her bounty, there are secrets that only come this way.)
All blends are done astrologically, since I have been an astrologer now for 40 years. They are charged with associated crystals and reiki’d.
We were CALLED TO THIS PATH. Literally crossing over....so you don’t have to.
Our blends are DIVINELY INSPIRED AND GUIDED adding to our extensive and eternal education into alternative healing methods. This is also why we cashed in our entire 401K to open up the 2nd and 3rd Healing centers and also co-found, Cleveland Polarity which became: Ohio Institute of Energetic Studies, the first certified school in the State of Ohio for alternative health. Wrote the curriculum that was certified, Total Sensory Healing and Integration, Vibrational Medicine. Taught that now for many years. All of it still as solid, true and relevant as it will always be into the future. I am glad I was able to do this for Gd, and for so many who began their healing career at the school.
We ONLY USE THE VERY BEST AVAILABLE ESSENTIAL OILS, SOURCED FROM ALL OVER THE WORLD AFTER DECADES OF EXPERIENCE.
