How has the COVID-19 pandemic affected your life? Has it brought fear and worry, or, tragically, the loss of a loved one? During this stressful time, we’d like to introduce you to a step-by-step process utilizing Young Living essential oils that can help clear and de-charge distressing memories and thoughts.

The Memory Resolution Technique, which takes about 10 minutes, helps repattern stuck emotional energy related to a traumatic memory — one that might have been too painful or overwhelming to process — by tapping into the limbic system of the brain via the olfactory nerve (sense of smell). The limbic system is key, because that’s where the primitive approach/avoidance and safe/unsafe feelings are created.

The technique includes three steps, each with specific oils.

In Step 1, the initial memory is released. The client pictures the upsetting memory, identifies where that feeling is in the body, and assigns a word that describes that feeling. Then, the client identifies where from 0 to 10 (10 being the most intense) that feeling would be. As the client focuses on the sensation of this memory, he or she inhales a blend of three oils (Frankincense, Lavender, and Stress Away), noticing what happens. The client is asked to go through this process until the intensity of the feeling goes down to a 0 or 1.

In Step 2, the client utilizes Inner Child essential oil (Citrus Fresh could also be used), to connect with his or her core self and integrate the processed memory from Step 1. To do this, the client is asked to identify a positive, pleasant childhood experience — or even go back to a time that he or she wished were positive and imagine it the way they would have liked it to be. The essential oil is placed in the client’s palms, which are then placed over his or her nose and navel, and the client is asked to notice what happens. (Many feel comfort and a shift in mood.)

In Step 3, the client creates a future focus, utilizing Believe essential oil (or Valor, or any favorite essential oil), so he or she can anchor a positive and strong image and move forward in a new way. Smelling the oil, the client pictures an image that represents strength to them.

And that’s it! After going through this three-step process, clients usually sense a profound change — a feeling of being able to live more freely and openly.
