WHY GOLD, FRANKINCENSE AND MYRRH?
Six months ago, my husband had really bad back pain months ago. It had been going on for over a week and he was miserable. I went to my yoga instructor, Sheri Cherokee (alphaomyoga.com), for some advice. She showed me one pose he could do and then told me to get him ESSENTIAL OILS. Before that moment, I thought essential oils were just a silly fad.
I googled and it recommended FRANKINCENSE and MYRRH. “Hmmm..” I thought, transported by those words to childhood NATIVITY PAGEANTS. I immediately went home and put those very oils along with Arnica cream on his back. After a 15 minute nap, HE WAS PERFECTLY FINE. Said he felt great! Hadn’t had pain since! I was amazed!!
It’s been 6 months and I’m still blown away by it. Now, I don’t sell these oils (although I do now have the starter kit from Young Living) but it made me wonder WHAT THE WISEMEN KNEW!
Why gold, frankincense and myrrh?? Those words used to be so curious to me as a child after hearing them every Christmas we tend to think nothing of them. BUT THERE’S SOMETHING TO THEM!! Why did the “WISE” 2,000 years ago, bring those particular gifts to the baby Jesus and His parents?
GOLD- We’ve known for years now (see our blog on the Crystal Goddess for more https://plus.google.com/107287050579003737566/posts/8ajwcaskunk?sfc=true) that EVERY ELEMENT ON THE PERIODIC TABLE has a specific vibration, as do emotions. Feeling high, feeling low etc. Gold is a VERY HIGH VIBRATING METAL. Just being around gold or thinking about gold brings more abundance, more “sunshine” into our lives. This is the REAL REASON behind the GOLD STANDARD! Why else would GOLD be so precious? Why does it back all the monetary systems in the world? According to https://www.purestcolloids.com/history-gold.php “In Renaissance Venice, guests were served gold-covered, sugared almonds after meals to strengthen the heart, protect against rheumatism, and show off the hosts’ riches! Colloidal Gold has a balancing and harmonizing effect on all levels of body, mind, and spirit. It is used to improve mental attitude and emotional states..increased energy, will power, mental focus and libido. . increases mental acuity and the ability to concentrate..increasing blood circulation..look at it as heart-friendly. Pregnant women wore a gold chain to influence the fetal heart and the body fluids of the mother. Gold [is] a component of certain drugs that treat rheumatoid arthritis..reduce swelling and bring down the pain associated with joint disease.”
“Colloidal gold has anti-inflammatory powers to alleviate pain and swelling [from] arthritis and bursitis..provide anti-aging, higher IQ, and pineal gland enhancing possibilities..easing the pains and swellings of arthritis, rheumatism, bursitis, and tendonitis. Gold has been used to treat digestive disorders, circulatory problems, depression, obesity, and burns. Nano-particle gold has even demonstrated anti-tumor/cancer activity.” Says http://naturalsociety.com/health-benefits-of-colloidal-gold/
This is why crown for royalty and wedding rings are made out of gold. You can make your own infinite supply colloidal gold out of an old gold chain and some water. Whomever the “Wisemen from the East” were, they knew of the benefits that gold would have on Jesus and His family.
FRANKINCENSE- the incense. Both it and myrrh are resins collected from their tree’s saps. Both are used in holy spiritual rituals. Both have been used traditionally for healing. Did the “Wisemen”/astrologers/magi/magicians know that the new mother Mary could use post-delivery aid or were they a prophecy of Jesus’ future as a spiritual leader?) All three- gold, frankincense and myrrh are anti-inflammatory and anti-arthritic. All good to have in the medicine box of a healer. Frankincense also helps relieve chronic stress and anxiety. It reduces pain, boosts immunity, and even has cancer fighting properties as well. “Frankincense oil uses include stress-relieving bath soak; natural household cleaner; natural hygiene product; anti-aging and wrinkle fighter; relieving the symptoms of indigestion; scar, wound, stretch mark or acne remedy; natural cold or flu medicine; and relieving inflammation and pain.” https://draxe.com/what-is-frankincense/
“The ancient Greeks and Romans also imported massive amounts of the resins, which they burned as incense, used during cremations and took for a wide variety of ailments. By this time, medical practitioners had recognized and documented the substances’ antiseptic, anti-inflammatory and analgesic properties, prescribing them for everything from indigestion and chronic coughs to hemorrhoids and halitosis.” “The Roman historian and botanist Pliny the Elder, who recommended frankincense as an antidote to hemlock poisoning, wrote in the first century A.D. that the pricey dried sap had made the southern Arabians the richest people on earth.” –http://www.history.com/news/a-wise-mans-cure-frankincense-and-myrrh And lastly, MYRRH “According to Touwaide, myrrh appears with more frequency than any other plant substance in the writings of the Greek physician Hippocrates, who revolutionized the field of medicine in the fourth and third centuries B.C.” http://www.history.com/news/a-wise-mans-cure-frankincense-and-myrrh “Myrrh was very popular among ancient cultures. The Chinese valued it as a medicine, while Egyptians used it for embalming their pharaohs4 as well as for their sun-worshipping rituals. In fact, myrrh was mentioned in Ebers Papyrus, one of the oldest Egyptian medical texts, dating back to 1550 BC.5Even the Greek soldiers made use of this resin, bringing it with them to battle to stop their wounds from bleeding.6” –http://articles.mercola.com/herbal-oils/myrrh-oil.aspx Myrrh aids coughs, colds, sore throats, upset stomachs, diarrhea, indigestion, relieves toothaches, gingivitis, mouth ulcers, halitosis, can be used as toothpaste, strengthens immune system, helps with anti-aging and chapped or cracked skin. Myrrh is found in perfumes, embalming fluids, and it’s also used to flavor food. It helps to relieve sores and wounds and helps relieve skin infections, such as athlete’s foot, ringworm, weeping eczema, bedsores, boils, carbuncles, and acne! If I had all three of these items, my little boys would always be healthy and thriving. So, these WISEMEN, or wiser people knew the perfect care package to set this new family up for success. It seems they were very well thought out, precious gifts for what they knew to be a special family that they found on a special night by following a star. ✨
