My middle child, Rafe, age 7, is very empathic, meaning he is sensitive to and absorbs the energy within his environment — especially the energy created from the thoughts, words and emotions of other people. He becomes overwhelmed and emotional; angers quickly and cries easily. Trying to rationalize with him does not help, despite a calm voice and my best efforts.
Our best antidote has come from a tiny bottle of blended essential oils. It soothes Rafe’s moods and helps to even his temperament. I apply it to Rafe’s belly and back — dab it on and rub it in — once or twice per day.
I believe the essential oils help to create an energetic barrier around Rafe’s energy field (or aura) — the missing link which helps Rafe to feel more comfortable in his own skin. The essential oils help to protect him from the swirling energies that his young body and sensitive emotions are not yet equipped to manage.
The essential oil application works best if used prior to large amounts of energy exposure; for example, before school, before a friend’s birthday party or before a trip to the mall. Anywhere Rafe will be exposed to crowds of people (in physical form and in spiritual form).
Rafe is sensitive to spirit energy also. He provides vivid and accurate descriptions of archangels and earth spirit. He loves to share these with me because he knows that I, as a medium, see our spirit friends too; and we reassure each other that there’s nothing to be afraid of.
Rafe tends to see the most Spirit when he’s trying to fall asleep. For this reason, at times, we’ll apply the essential oils just before bedtime. While the essential oils will not protect Rafe from spirit communication exclusively, they do help to soothe his fears and reduce the overwhelm he once felt when confronted with spirit messaging (seeing and hearing his own spirit guides and sensing other forms of spirit in general).
Below is the recipe I use for making essential oil applications for my children. For Rafe, I purchased the “Little Angels” blend online from Floracopeia. It’s a blend of lavender, cedar, chamomile and vetiver essential oils.
1 oz. (2 tbsp.) fractionated coconut oil
6 drops of Little Angels
