Sandalwood Oil for the clearing and activation of the Stomach Meridian
Sandalwood is used in the Fragrance Alchemy (FA) protocol to clear the 12 ordinary meridians–it associates with the Stomach meridian (earth element), helping to clear emotions of disgust, greed, shame, and blame.
Esoterically, a healthy digestive system brings the ability of clear self-expression and clarity in mind to discern what is self-truth. It is also the place where well-being in the body begins.
Benefits of the Alchemical Sandalwood:
- Uplifts the spirit and elevates the mood toward hope and optimism
- Releases the hold of the past, supporting greater presence and potency in the moment
- Helps to balance and clear the Stomach meridian, and activate it to its higher function. (Sandalwood is traditionally used to treat stomach disorders.)
- Supports self-determination and clarity in self-expression, which brings contentment and peace in oneself
- Clears the negative emotions of the stomach, and enhances our ability to emancipate from the tribe and discover our true self beyond programmed conditioning.
Stomach Meridian Clearing has many effects:
- ‘Sea of Nourishment‘ that has bioenergetic function of extracting pure energy from foods and fluids, and transporting (with spleen) this food energy (gu qi) through the meridian system to the lungs, where it combines with air energy from breathing.
- Affects mental state–imparts clear thinking when digestion is good; otherwise thought is muddled.
- Meridian of self-determination, peace and contentment. When we recognize the fullness of life, life becomes still and the stomach can digest illusion and impart clear thinking.
- Enables true individuation, beyond the programs we may have taken on in early life. Supports fearless self-exploration and eventual self-acceptance and reclaming of one’s innocence.
- General meridian clearing optimizes sleep, so that we are in creative states rather than tied up processing unresolved emotions. Time where the body’s energies focus on this meridian is 7-9am.
- May be applied along the Stomach meridian, ideally on St-2 and St-36.
- May be rubbed on the stomach in the traditional use of clearing stomach disorders.
