What is Aroma Freedom?
Aroma Freedom Technique (AFT) is the fastest, gentlest, and easiest method to uncover and set aside negative thoughts, feelings, and memories with essential oils. Memories can lie in our subconscious sometimes running in the background like a computer virus or malware, sabotaging our current goals without us even realizing why we're stuck or self sabotaging
During a session we connect the mind, body and emotion to a memory and then use your sense of smell to help free your brain and "file away" memories that interfere with your current life
Memory is not just remembering what happened but includes how we perceive future events. Implicit memory is the lesson our brain walks away with from everything we experience. That's exactly how it's supposed to work - we experience life and learn. We don't need to relearn over and over how to walk or drive a car
Sometimes, though, our brain walks away with a "learned lesson" stuck in our mind that doesn't really serve us. These prevent us from reaching our goals and fullest potential without us even realizing what is keeping us stuck. That shows up as negative thoughts, limiting beliefs, feeling not enough or unable to do a thing, or we start things strong and lose momentum
Aroma Freedom frees this connection, helps us see and process the memory. To simply file it away the way memories are normally filed away. It gets them unstuck. It doesn't suppress them, rather the brain processes the memory as an ordinary life event removing the emotional charge currently keeping it stuck and spinning in our brain and body.
Do you struggle with future goals? Let’s Identify and remove obstacles to reaching your full potential and conquer once and for all those negative voices and negative self talk sabotaging your forward momentum using Aroma Freedom Technique!
Scientific Factoids - why it works and how
Aroma Freedom and Aromatherapy are based in neuroscience - the science of how the brain works - and it's fascinating! We are indeed wonderfully made - we have tremendous power in our brain and we can harness that power to use with purpose
Our sense of smell is the first smell to develop in the womb, it's beyond our conscious control
Our sense of smell directly connects to the parts of the brain responsible for memory and emotion
It is the only one of our five senses with a direct / unfiltered connection to the brain. All our other senses send information to the part of the brain responsible for filtering out what is important and what is not. When it comes to sense of smell there is no such filter. That's why when you smell something there's an instant emotion and / or memory association beyond our control
This is what makes aromatherapy so very powerful and why I became aromatherapist in the first place. Aroma Freedom technique is very specific method I use for working with emotional blocks, helping you set them free so you achieve your fullest potential
Aroma Freedom is an entirely unique way of using essential oils, combined with proven psychological principles, to quickly and gently dissolve the negative thoughts, feelings and memories that hold us back from reaching our dreams. It uses the principle of Memory Reconsolidation, which has been studied by neuroscience as the natural way the brain updates learning and prediction
If you don't have essential oils I can get you samples for the session or we can find alternative ways to explore your sense of smell using what you already have on hand
