Fragonia Best New Talent

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]The uniqueness of Fragonia essential oil is its ability to work at a deep level, releasing both physical and emotional blockages. This essential oil possesses the ability to bring harmony, peace and balance.

Botanical Name: Agonis fragrans
Country of origin: Australia Only [/vc_column_text][vc_column_text]

When the power of love is greater than the love of power,
the world will know peace.”
– Jimi Hendrix

Like a candle carrying the light of dignity, Fragonia is fertiliser for the spirit, taking you beyond lingering hurts and emotional enmeshments stemming from any unresolved family issues.

When your life force has wilted and you are feeling fragile, frail, debilitated and separate, Fragonia will move you away from your fragility and lovingly demand that you call on your self-respect and dignity when dealing with memories of the far, far past.

Patterns of repetition in your consciousness can keep you trapped within the limitations of your personal history. What was in the past can uncannily show up again in the present. These patterns take the form of grooves in your emotional grid and denote patterns of energy layered with emotional scarring. Fragonia gently helps to remove those scars from the emotional framework, alleviating toxic residue and mental static.

As we become personally accountable for the accumulative effects of our emotions, thoughts and attitudes, purification practices are required to burn off layers of buried negative impressions, repressions and suppressions that come forth as old blockages are released.

You have the ability to mobilise your healing resources and Fragonia calls you to that place in your higher consciousness where you are connected to something far greater than yourself. As you build resilience, extra-ordinary shifts can occur in the psyche, where you can celebrate life, despite illness, dis-ease and emotional discomfort.

At the top of the spine, at the base of the skull, (see also occipital ridge muscle) there is an emotional release point which acts a filter for the nervous system and spine. By applying Fragonia to this reflex point the nervous system will relax, allowing feelings, emotions and thoughts to be processed differently.

Brisk friction massage alongside the spine with Fragonia is also an important aspect of this release, strengthening the power of the neural pathways.

Fragonia carries a unique energy pattern bringing the gift of the power of love. In each of us love is already in place. Perhaps you can simply, let love, love you.

  • Where do you carry fragility in your body, your psyche?
  • Do you require a re-solution to an old recurring issue?
  • What regular practice can you undertake, to counter negative thoughts and feelings with positive ones?

Blends well with: Kunzea, any Eucalyptus oils (for colds and flu), Lemon Tea Tree, Sandalwood[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]

The Emotional Brain

[vc_single_image image=”36523″ img_size=”large” alignment=”center”][vc_custom_heading text=”General Psychology -The Emotional Nervous System” google_fonts=”font_family:Satisfy%3Aregular|font_style:400%20regular%3A400%3Anormal”]Emotion involves the entire nervous system, of course, but there are two parts of the nervous system that are especially significant:

The limbic system and the autonomic nervous system.

The limbic system is a complex set of structures that lies on both sides of the thalamus, just under the cerebrum.
It includes the hypothalamus, the hippocampus, the amygdala, and several other nearby areas.
It appears to be primarily responsible for our emotional life, and has a lot to do with the formation of memories.
In this drawing, you are looking at the brain cut in half, but with the brain stem intact.
The part of the limbic system shown is that which is along the left side of the thalamus (hippocampus and amygdala) and just under the front of the thalamus (hypothalamus):

The hypothalamus is responsible for regulating your hunger, thirst, response to pain, levels of pleasure, sexual satisfaction, anger and aggressive behavior, and more.  It also regulates the functioning of the autonomic nervous system (see below), which in turn means it regulates things like pulse, blood pressure, breathing, and arousal in response to emotional circumstances.

The Hippocampus appears to be very important in converting things that are “in your mind” at the moment (in short-term memory) into things that you will remember for the long run (long-term memory).  If the hippocampus is damaged, a person cannot build new memories and lives instead in a strange world where everything they experience just fades away, even while older memories from the time before the damage are untouched!

This very unfortunate situation is fairly accurately portrayed in the wonderful movie Memento, as well as in a more light-hearted movie, 50 First Dates.  But there is nothing light-hearted about it:   Most people who suffer from this kind of brain damage end up institutionalized.

Amygdala: When it is stimulated electrically, animals respond with aggression.  And if the amygdala is removed, animals get very tame and no longer respond to things that would have caused rage before.  But there is more to it than just anger:  When removed, animals also become indifferent to stimuli that would have otherwise have caused fear and even sexual responses.

Related areas: Besides the hypothalamus, hippocampus, and amygdala, there are other areas in the structures near to the limbic system that are intimately connected to it:

The cingulate gyrus is the part of the cerebrum that lies closest to the limbic system, just above the corpus collosum.   It provides a pathway from the thalamus to the hippocampus, seems to be responsible for focusing attention on emotionally significant events, and for associating memories of pain and to smells. (The aromatherapy trigger is the Olfactory Bulb in the diagram)

The ventral tegmental area of the brain stem (just below the thalamus) consists of Dopamine pathways that seem to be responsible for pleasure.  People with damage here tend to have difficulty getting pleasure in life, and often turn to alcohol, drugs, sweets, and gambling.

The basal ganglia are responsible for repetitive behaviours, reward experiences, and focusing attention

The prefrontal cortex is also closely linked to the limbic system.  Besides apparently being involved in thinking about the future, making plans, and taking action, it also appears to be involved in the same dopamine pathways as the ventral tegmental area, and plays a part in pleasure and addiction.

The Autonomic Nervous System

The second part of the nervous system to have a particularly powerful part to play in our emotional life is the autonomic nervous system.  The autonomic nervous system is composed of two parts, which function primarily in opposition to each other.  The first is the sympathetic nervous system, which starts in the spinal cord and travels to a variety of areas of the body.  Its function appears to be preparing the body for the kinds of vigorous activities associated with “fight or flight,” that is, with running from danger or with preparing for violence.

Activation of the sympathetic nervous system has the following effects:

dilates the pupils
opens the eyelids
stimulates the sweat glands
dilates the blood vessels in large muscles
constricts the blood vessels in the rest of the body
increases the heart rate
opens up the bronchial tubes of the lungs
inhibits the secretions in the digestive system

One of its most important effects is causing the adrenal glands (which sit on top of the kidneys) to release epinephrine (aka adrenalin) into the blood stream.  Epinephrine is a powerful hormone that causes various parts of the body to respond in much the same way as the sympathetic nervous system.  Being in the blood stream, it takes a bit longer to stop its effects.  This is why, when you get upset, it sometimes takes a while before you can calm yourself down again!

The sympathetic nervous system also takes in information, mostly concerning pain from internal organs.  Because the nerves that carry information about organ pain often travel along the same paths that carry information about pain from more surface areas of the body, the information sometimes get confused.  This is called referred pain, and the best known example is the pain some people feel in the left shoulder and arm when they are having a heart attack.

The other part of the autonomic nervous system is called the parasympathetic nervous system.  It has its roots in the brainstem and in the spinal cord of the lower back.  Its function is to bring the body back from the emergency status that the sympathetic nervous system puts it into.

 

Some of the details of parasympathetic arousal include…

pupil constriction
activation of the salivary glands
stimulating the secretions of the stomach
stimulating the activity of the intestines
stimulating secretions in the lungs
constricting the bronchial tubes
decreasing heart rate

The parasympathetic nervous system also has some sensory abilities:  It receives information about blood pressure, levels of carbon dioxide in the blood, and so on.

There is actually one more part of the autonomic nervous system that we don’t mention too often:  The enteric nervous system.  This is a complex of nerves that regulate the activity of the stomach.  When you get sick to your stomach or feel butterflies when you get nervous, you can blame the enteric nervous system.
