The 12 Ordinary Meridians (abbreviated OMs) are the rivers of our life that we journey upon. As discussed on the page about the 12 + 8 Meridians, the 12 OMs have been described as "rivers of filth" due to the polluting emotions and memories that bind up to illusion and repetitive karmic cycles. This is why we have been given Fragrance Alchemy at this time: to clear the emotional/mental debris that has been blocking the meridians and hindering the evolutionary leap that is open to us at present, and activate the meridian system to higher functioning.
As our Meridians Flow with Ease, so Our Life Flows with Grace
The health of the 12 OMs determines what our life looks like, as not only do they give us the power to manifest our lives but what they hold becomes the content of our life. When the meridians are healthy, the body is receiving all resources to evolve and is utilizing these through optimal flow. When blocked, parts of our body and our lives are impoverished, deprived, and unsupported. Essentially, the ordinary meridians 'downstep' hidden forces and resources that supply our body and our lives with what we need in order to express, manifest and evolve. These hidden forces come as various forms of chi that supply the body with power and give the psyche higher awareness: nutritive chi, immune chi, sexual potency, longevity, stamina, will forces, power to manifest our destiny, visioning ability, power to overcome and meet challenge, ancestral influences, receptiveness, inspiration, and so on. The body's resources flow to various organs and systems, and are transformed at each step, into usable form to support the next body system or organ. When flow is good, we have inner harmony, and every part contributes its power in support of the well-being of the whole. Blocks in one system can compromise the whole as the body is a highly interdependent system.
Ordinary Meridians Impact on how you Interpret, Perceive, and Evolve From Experience
Think of body and life as indivisible--imbalance in life means the body is imbalanced in some way--reestablishing healthy flow in the ordinary meridian system is the most direct way to get our life on a higher track and moving into new territory. And the Fragrance Alchemy is a most elegant tool--simple yet infinitely potent--to stimulate the meridians into clearing and activation.
Major Organs of the Body
Each meridian associates with a major organ as well as a sense organ. The hidden function of our organs is that they 'organize' life experiences. Keeping it simple, whatever life experiences can't be interpreted or transmuted to higher awareness get stored in the various organs depending on the emotional charge they contain. For example, unprocessed anger will lodge in the liver organ, and grief will store in the lungs.
There are 4 main negative emotions that associate with each of the 12 meridians and store in the organs over which they preside--so a total of 48 distortions that get suppressed in the body, causing all manner if discomfort and disease. When enough emotional debris gets stuffed down, the organs operate in density...they are like our 'junk drawers'...and they then malfunction and are unable to do their part in transforming the various chi's. Organs are not meant to store garbage--they are meant to hold and transform resources. Dense organs operate in a reality of 'every man for himself', as they no longer feel supported by a higher indwelling consciousness. (This is the unhealthy state that sets the stage for all manner of cancers.)
Meridians and the 8 Sense Organs of Evolved Consciousness
Sense organs operate similarly. When we have unprocessed trauma or unpleasant experiences, our sense organs will edit out or alter what they receive. Traumatized sense organs hold back what they perceive in order to avoid change, because change is perceived as fearful. Scientific study has demonstrated that the eyes edit out about 80% of what they receive, and this is because the mind disbelieving what it sees simply holds back that information. Sense organs also distort information through their skewed lens--so a person who has past abuse may hear negativity in what others say to them that really is not there. This means sense organs are operating in isolation as interpreters of information, rather than doing their job as receptors and transmitter--passing eveything along to the indwelling consciousness for proper interpretation from higher awareness. The result is that we see, hear, sense, etc, reality based on what we've known...based on the past--this causes life to be stagnant and predictable.
The net result is we live in a sub-creation, which is much like going round and round in fishbowl, rather than swimming in the big wide ocean where the adventures that vitalize and evolve our being are to be had. In a fishbowl, life is repetitive and stagnant, resources dwindle, and depression, meaninglessness, illness, and decay set in.
Using the Fragrance Alchemy oils help you to get out of the fishbowl and into the big ocean, where the currents can lead you along your highest path of destiny. As the oils clear the sense organs, they also start to activate the deeper sense organs of evolved consciousness, resulting in effortless knowing and clarity of the next step from a whole-body felt sense.
Nothing gets manifested in your life that is not supported directly by the meridians--that is how important they are. And the more evolved their capacities, the more extraordinary your life will be from a liberated sense of self. confident self-expression, and endless vitality.
The beauty about Fragrance Alchemy is that you don't have to understand all of this to get the benefits of using the oils with the protocols for the ordinary meridians. You have only to feel emotions and identify what oil you need, apply it, and be open to releasing old patterns.
