Oils Well That Ends Well

The essential nature of oil

Oil is a topic of nearly universal application. Oil is used in transportation, marinating, lubrication, and elimination, etc., depending on the type and viscosity of the oil! Can you imagine your car, your skin, or even your salad without some form of oil?

I am reminded of a scene from the film, The Wizard of Oz. Exposure to the elements has left the Tin Woodsman unable to move, rusted and frozen in a forest. But Dorothy revives him with a few drops of oil.

We can surmise that all oil is essential! But in this article, we will focus on the therapeutic, or healing, nature of oils.

The Value of Oil

“There is treasure to be desired and oil in the dwelling place of the wise.” Proverbs 21:20

Since ancient times, the wise have known about the healing and therapeutic value of essential oils. Believe it or not, the Bible contains a wealth of information on our topic. It mentions no less than 33 essential oils and oil-producing plants within its pages.

When you visit the Holy Land (Israel) you can easily understand why oils are so important. Even with all of its beauty, Israel has an arid, desert climate, which causes your skin to lose moisture quickly. That’s why the Israeli diet contains a lot of olive oil. The nomadic shepherds of Israel, to this day, anoint or rub olive oil on the skin of their animals to keep their skin supple and safeguard them from insects, inflammation and infections.

Olive oil has a vast array of health benefits including:

Here is a list of just a few of the principle oils mentioned in the Bible:

Myrrh Frankincense Calamus Cedarwood Cinnamon
Cassia Galbanum Onycha Spikenard Hyssop
Sandalwood Myrtle Cypress Rose Of Sharon Spikenard

Each oil mentioned in the Bible possesses a special application and medicinal quality, as well as a spiritual metaphor. Click to Tweet.

Interestingly, oil is widely understood as a symbol of the Holy Spirit in The Bible. Here are a couple of examples: in Luke 4:8, Jesus said, “The Spirit of the Lord is on Me, because He has anointed Me to proclaim good news to the poor. He has sent Me to proclaim freedom for the prisoners and recovery of sight for the blind, to set the oppressed free.”

The Spirit of the Lord and the anointing oil are directly linked here. The oil of anointing appears as a physical representation of Jesus being given the Holy Spirit to perform these functions for God in His love for mankind.

Here is another aspect of this symbolism. In Acts 10: 38, we read,“How God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Spirit and with power, who went about doing good and healing all who were oppressed by the devil, for God was with Him.”

This is another reference to anointing, an act typically done with oil. But here, the anointing is done by the Holy Spirit!

In one of King David’s psalms we see the anointing oil compared with God’s people living in harmony, “For harmony is as precious as the anointing oil that was pored over Aaron’s head, that ran down his beard and onto the border of his robe.” Psalm 133:1-2

And when it came to offerings or sacrifices in the Old Testament, they often required oil as an integral part of the offering or sacrifice. “Now when anyone presents a grain offering to the LORD, his offering shall be of fine flour, and he shall pour oil on it and put frankincense on it.” Leviticus 2:1

I am sharing these passages to emphasize the absolute importance, or essential nature, of oils throughout the Bible, as well as history.

  • The apostle Paul considered the triad of basic needs to be food, clothing, and oil!
  • Hosea described Israel’s basic needs in his day as, 1) bread and water, 2) wool and flax and 3) oil and drink.
  • Oil filled the menorah, giving light to the temple, offerings and sacrifices.
  • A cleansed leper would be anointed with oil before returning to family.
  • Scented or perfumed oils were prized as much as gold and silver.
  • Altars were anointed with oil.
  • Kings were anointed with oil.
  • Oil was sent as a symbol of treaty between warring nations.
  • The list goes on and on!

In fact, before our modern electric conveniences were invented, oil was the primary source of light. Essential oil to ancient man was a necessity!

Now here’s the fun part…What makes each plant (or essential) oil effective to a different part of the body?

It’s inherent frequency!

photosynthesis into energy into essential oilsThat’s right! If you have read my book, Wholetones: The Sound Of Healing you are already tracking with me.

You see, everything is frequency and everything possesses a resonant frequency. Our bodies are electrical. So is everything around us.

The Sun activates photosynthesis in plants, which converts sunlight into electrical, chemical energy available to us through essential oils. Click to Tweet.

When essential oils are extracted from plants, they possess unique chemical components, as well as their own specific frequencies. And each frequency will affect the body in a different way. One may resonate with the lungs, while another may rid the body of infection.

Essential oils have the capacity to change the electrical frequency of the body. The electrical frequency of essential oils ranges between 52 and 320 Hz. Because they are living substances, their frequency is harmonic with the human frequency. When essential oils come into contact with our bodies, the frequency of our bodies becomes raised to a degree so that we become inhospitable hosts to pathogenic organisms.

Rose essential oil vibrates at a rate of 320MHz. The highest measured frequency of any essential oil, rose emanates love, purity, and wholeness, connecting mind, body, and spirit. It is not surprising then that there is no greater human emotion than love: the feeling of love is the highest frequency any person is able to emit. So remember, when you use essential oils, regardless of their vibrational frequencies use them with an open heart filled with love.

In God’s genius, He gave us every seed bearing plant and tree as both sustenance and a veritable medicine chest – for what ails us. Click to Tweet.

This is the essence of nature from its organic origin, and it all depends on the Sun to make it work!

Essential Joy

plants for medicineSo here is a question…What is more essentialoil from plants, or the Sun that makes plants grow?

And here is yet another question…What is more essential…mankind, or God who gave us life? Now, stay with me…

I have used the word “essential” throughout this article without giving you its definition, which I will do now.

Essential: Absolutely necessary, vital, critical, all-important, nonnegotiable, must-have.

In my time on this “big blue marble” there is only one thing I have discovered that by definition is essential for life. This passage will describe it in detail:

“Your throne, O God, will last forever and ever; a scepter of justice will be the scepter of Your of Kingdom. You love righteousness and hate wickedness; therefore God, Your God, has set YOU above your companions by anointing You with the oil of joy.” Psalm 45:6-7

The true essential oil, the oil of joy, can only be obtained through a healing relationship with the Son of God, Jesus. There are many things in this life that are beneficial, but only one that is essential. I have received the oil of joy through the love of Jesus Christ. It is my prayer that He alone will become the one essential, must-have in your life today.

Get Good Vibrations from Food

What if I told you that your food was vibrating? Would you see it as a positive thing? You’d likely think I was off my rocker!

The reality is you want your food to vibrate. Food has vibrational frequency – a measurement of the electrical energy that is present in all natural living things.

I gotta say… the Beach Boys had it right all along! But in this case, “I’m pickin’ up good vibrations,” comes from my food. You can’t see these vibrations or hear them. But I assure you they are there. In fact vibrations, otherwise referred to as frequencies or energy, are everywhere. They’re in the rocks, the trees, the music you listen to, the colors you see, even in your own body….and the food you eat.

Healthy diets typically focus on antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals contained in foods. The nutrients are very important aspects of what we eat and contribute to the positive vibrations in our food. However, food frequencies or vibrations are not typically mentioned as a component of a healthy diet. Many people believe that frequencies and vibrations are a bunch of New Age crazy talk. The truth is that food containing positive vibrations can be the key to a healthy, disease free, and vibrant life. A healthy diet includes eating foods that help heal our bodies not just with vitamins and minerals, but also with positive vibrations.

Keeping up Good Vibrations

A healthy human body has frequency between 62 and 72 Hz. Maintaining this healthy vibration is very important in that it keeps us free from disease. A slight drop to just 60 Hz leaves our body susceptible to the common cold. Most diseases begin at 58 Hz and cancer grows at 42 Hz.[1]

The choices we make daily affect the frequency of our body. To be honest, it is becoming more and more difficult to avoid frequency-lowering mechanisms. Technology and the stressful lifestyle of our culture are constantly bombarding us with things that assault our body’s God-given vibration. Precise frequencies could destroy specific organisms such as cancer cells and viruses, while others could be used to prevent the development of disease.

The most common culprits that lower body frequency are:

  • Stress
  • EMF radiation from cell phones, Wi-Fi, etc.
  • Negative thoughts
  • Chemicals in the air, food, water, and skincare products
  • Lack of exercise

As certain patterns of vibration are associated with good health, you can increase their frequency and optimize their health by applying some easy methods to your daily life:

Healthy Food Vibrations

What we eat has the most dramatic impact on the vibrational frequency of our body. Food is broken down and its components circulated throughout our system, touching and influencing everything inside of us. What we eat, good or bad, becomes a part of us. In essence, the energy or vibration of the food we eat is transferred to us inside our bodies.

Higher food vibrations aid in fending off disease, clearing thinking, increased energy and a positive mood. Click to Tweet.

Eating healthy food releases positive vibrations in our body, enhancing our body’s frequency and keeping us in a healthy state. Unhealthy food is dead, void of life-giving vibrations and robs us of the life and energy that keeps our body in a healthy state.

It’s pretty easy to identify foods that increase our vibration and keep us healthy. Healthy vibrational foods visually have the vibrancy that they release inside our bodies. They are colorful, full of flavor, and have a unique character that is far from bland and boring.

Below is the chart of food frequencies:

The Miracle of Music on Your Health

Music is a miracle….

It speaks to us, causes our heart to swell, and jolts us down to our bones.

Like a time machine, it transports us to places and times decades before.

It pulls from us emotions down so deep, we can’t seem to reach them by our own will, inducing feelings of love, loss, hope, and triumph.

Music inadvertently demands our body to move, our feet to tap, our head to shake, and our body to sway.

I remember the first time I saw the clip from the documentary entitled, Alive Inside. Tears streamed down my face as I watched a man named Henry, who could barely speak, transform before my eyes. Henry’s dementia had progressed to the point where he didn’t recognize his own daughter. His words were barely understandable and he sat most days with his body slumped over, looking down at his own legs.

I watched as they loaded an iPod with some of Henry’s favorite old gospel tunes and headphones were placed over his ears. Within seconds, he looked up, his eyes wide and his face aglow. He began to move his body and then sing along to the music. After a few minutes, they took the headphones off his head and began to ask him questions. He was alert and answered their questions quickly and with a clearness that he lacked before. The music awakened him, activating neural pathways in his brain that connected him to his identity and past memories. Music brought Henry to life and it can do the same…and so much more for you.

Sound Waves in Medicine

The foundation of music is composed of sound waves and frequencies. Modern medicine has used these sound waves to see inside patient’s bodies. Chances are, someone you know has undergone an ultrasound exam.

Ultrasound is a science built upon the simple sound wave. They use these frequencies to diagnose abnormalities in the body or evaluate babies in utero. High frequency sounds waves are sent into the body, acting similar to SONAR used by submarines or echolocation used by bats and dolphins.

When these waves hit your organs and tissues they bounce back. The machine calculates the speed of return of the sound and creates an image on the screen. More recent ultrasound machines have upgraded from a 2D image to a 3D image, which is absolutely amazing. Women can actually see their baby’s face while they are still in the womb!

Ultrasounds are also useful for many forms of diagnosis like tumors, heart defects, and kidney stones. In fact, they are the most utilized form of diagnostic imaging available today – after X-ray exams.

But now, science is discovering that sound waves are not only useful for the images they can produce, but for the healing of tissue! The University of Cincinnati recently published results from using sound waves to heal wounds that would otherwise be very difficult to repair.

Diabetic and pressure ulcers can take months to heal, if they heal at all, do to lack of circulation. However, with the use of high frequencies sound waves, capillary networks are stimulated and circulation is enhanced. The research showed an improvement of up to 50% in the growth of blood vessel networks. This is a huge discovery and could save potentially millions of people from unnecessary infections, loss of limbs, and prolonged pain.

Another type of sound wave therapy called MIST uses saline solution and ultrasound waves to heal difficult wounds. MIST therapy has shown significant results over an 8 month study. This method of healing “from the inside out” can potentially save lives… and even save limbs from amputation. It is also saving thousands of dollars per patient in treatments and pain relief measures. This is because sound wave and frequency therapies are not only painless and effective at healing, but cost effective, as well.

Sounds vibrations ability to heal is not a new discovery. In the early 1900s, a handful of doctors began using certain frequencies to heal the body of diseases by killing bacteria and viruses with vibrations. Although their results were positive and many people were healed, they were shut down by threats from large drug corporations after they refused to sell their information.

Dr. Royal Rife, the pioneer of these vibration treatments, believed that every disease had it’s own unique frequency. He discovered that exposing a virus to certain frequencies of radio waves killed it quickly. He claimed that certain sound frequencies could destroy particular diseases. Higher frequencies could destroy diseases of lower frequencies.

Living in a world of frequencies and vibration, we are part of the whole system. Every cell of our body vibrates – everything has its optimal frequency. The human body has a frequency between 62-78. As the frequencies decrease, sickness and disease can result.

To get an idea of the frequencies of the human body, read the chart below.

Hertz That Heal

Music is unquestionably a potent modality of healing and has been around since the beginning of time. Initially, man created a crude drum to mimic the sound of thunder. They believed that God was thunder and were trying to communicate with Him. Later, man mused that God was the wind and made flutes out of hollow bird bones to mimic the sound of wind in another attempt to contact God.

Music is a universal language that removes language barriers. It is also a powerful communication tool that brings people together.

From our first social bonding as infants to the funeral rites that mark our passing, music plays an important role in our lives, bringing us closer to one another. It has the uncanny ability to provoke the sense of a shared human experience despite its myriad forms across continents and throughout centuries.

Have you ever noticed that hearing a familiar song on the radio can instantly transport you back to a particular event in your life?

The truth is your life is a musical with so much of your personal history entwined within the measures! Click to Tweet.

Is it any wonder that one of fastest growing fields of study and vocation today is that of music therapy? Music therapists are finding new effective inroads with Alzheimer patients, stroke survivors and people suffering with insomnia. In fact, music appears to have a profound effect on several types of disease.

music can helpClinical studies have also shown that music can help:

  • Manage pain
  • Improve mood and mobility of Parkinson’s sufferers
  • Reduce the need for sedatives and pain relievers after surgery
  • Shorten hospital stays
  • Relieve anxiety
  • Lower blood pressure
  • Ease depression
  • Enhance focus and creativity

And music can do all of this without prescription medication. Music is a source of security and—perhaps most importantly—joy. Music therapists agree that spending at least 15 minutes a day listening to music without any distractions can change your life!

Music as Therapy

While I am excited about the current renaissance of music therapy, I must also temper my excitement with one concern. I don’t believe that one must be a certified therapist in order to administer music therapeutically.

I have nothing but respect for ANYONE who chooses to make a career of music therapy. However, if we are not careful, we will find ourselves stuck in the same quagmire as with the government regulating our healthcare. The government should not interfere with our ability to treat ourselves with music.

All that is needed for effective music therapy is a peaceful environment and the right music! And as you will find out in a moment, there is another factor that can empower music to literally affect matter and thus…stimulate spontaneous healing in your body.

Frequency as Therapy

Are you familiar with the word, “frequency?” A frequency is a measure of vibration or energy. Every object possesses a resonant frequency. Resonance is the phenomenon that occurs when a sound frequency matches the resonant frequency of a physical object.

Think of it as transmitting and receiving. When you listen to a song on the radio, the radio station transmits a signal and your radio receives it. That signal you are receiving is a frequency. Every radio station broadcasts on a different frequency, which allows them to be differentiated on the FM or AM bandwidth.

When matching frequencies occur, it is called, “sympathetic resonance.” Here is my working definition:

“Sympathetic resonance, or sympathetic vibration, is a harmonic phenomenon, wherein a formerly passive string or vibratory body responds to external vibrations to which it has a harmonic likeness.”

Here’s an example.
