Antiquated sanctuary services and inceptions endeavored to adjust tactile contribution to influence higher cognizance. Light, fire, pictures, and mandalas adjusted cognizance through sight. Chosen food sources and flavors worked through taste. Oils, moisturizers, and certain creature skins and textures influenced cognizance through touch (e.g., panther in Egypt, and puma in Maya). What is more, incense was and keeps on being utilized to change cognizance through the olfactory nerves, the feeling of smell.
It is essential to recall that the goal is not to invigorate the faculties into increased actual mindfulness but instead to enhance attention to the ethereal, the limitless, the profound by modifying the information getting through the five detects.
Edgar Cayce’s experiences on the beginning, force, risks, and value of incense are useful. Here’s a decent perusing to consider (I’ve altered it for clearness and spotlight on the place of our examination):
From what did the plant acquire its capacity to create in the one that of lemon, in another orange, in another lavender, in another violet? From its parent stock which was given, not by man but rather by the Creative Forces. However, man can take and make what becomes as a quintessence that reacts to or sets in vibration the olfactory impacts in the mucous films of the body of an individual. There is the capacity to make smells that will react to specific people and gatherings; and a large number are reacting to scents that produce the impact inside their frameworks for exercises wherein the Creative Forces or God may show in the person! For smell is gas, and not of the denser matter that makes the corrupting things.
Cautious thought of the impact will assist us with deciding the fragrances that are best for us. At the point when asked what incense was ideal, Cayce frequently alluded to the individual’s previous existences incense cones. For instance, however he regularly suggested sandalwood incense, in one soul’s perusing he firmly cautioned against it, since that spirit had utilized the incense in a previous existence for increased sexual joy. One individual’s profound fragrance might be another’s actual arouser. This implies that every one of us needs to study, test, and intuit the fragrances that lift us into higher vibrations, higher conditions of cognizance.
Allow the brain to become, in a manner of speaking, sensitive to such by the murmuring, delivering those hints of o-o-o-ah-ah-umm-o-o-o; not as to get repetitive, yet feel the quintessence of the incense through the body-powers. This will open the kundalini powers of the body. At that point direct same to be a gift to other people. These emerge from the innovative focus of the actual body, and as they go through the different focuses direct same; else they may get more noteworthy upsetting than accommodating. Encircle self ever with that reason, ‘Not my will, O God, but rather Thine be done, ever,’ and the element will acquire vision, discernment and, in particular, judgment.
