First of all, I take A LOT of precautions to make sure I am using His light. I have had personal revelation about this specifically and several sacred experiences. Pray about it and do what feels best for you. Here is what I do:
- Before beginning, I ask in prayer for protection. You can do this by shielding, asking Heavenly Father to send angels to protect you or by simply asking for protection.
- I only ask questions that are specific.
- I ask if I have Heavenly Father's permission.
- I double check if there is any question at all. I do this by asking, "Am I using the LIGHT of CHRIST?" Another way to ask this, "IS THIS TRUTH?" You can also ask the question, "Am I getting interference?"
I had a special experience this past week where it was revealed to me that it was not only okay, but it was what Heavenly Father wanted me to do.
My family was preparing to go on a Family Trek with many other homeschool families. There were about 125 of us in all. I am in the very early stages of my pregnancy so with morning sickness, I wasn't super ecstatic about going but I did want to be there for my family.
My husband, Casey had a general anesthesia surgery removing two of his wisdom teeth. When he was waking up in the recovery room, my son Kaden that was with us passed out when they were taking out the I.V. He has a weak stomach like his daddy, I guess. We had to wait for an additional hour because he was vomiting and having a rough time once he came to.
With all of this going on, I wasn't quite sure if we were supposed to go or not, but after getting the confirmation from Heavenly Father we knew we were supposed to go.
Like anytime I leave to go out of town now, I went over to my essential oils, herbs and tinctures, and asked with muscle testing what I would need. Some might consider this predicting the future. I do not consider it that. I have a simple prayer in my heart that my needs and the needs of my family will be taken care of while we are away from home. I ask if I have Heavenly Father's permission too. I usually don't take that much with me, but know when I have what I should have.
We had a very spiritual, bonding, uplifting experience as a family. Even though my feet blistered and I struggled, I grew spiritually while there. I could feel the gratitude of my ancestors. Interesting to think that they have gratitude for us, but there it was. I knew that they did. They are grateful they were being remembered for their faith. They are grateful we were honoring their sacrifice. They love us. They know us. They are more a part of us then we will ever understand. My testimony increased greatly.
I took a small case of essential oils and a couple other things with me. It was pretty neat to reflect on the fact that I ended up using the things I took with me and what we used them for.
Lavender: Sunburns, scratches,
Peppermint: Morning sickness/ nausea, cooling body temp down.
Orange Sweet: Uplifting, happy smell
Cinnamon Bark: I put this on my wrists as we walked. I licked my wrists every now and again. It tasted like I had a mouth full of red hots. I know there are some other things that it probably helped with too.
Serenity: We used at night to help us sleep.
On Guard: As an infection prevention for my husband's mouth.
Basil: A 12 year old girl in a camp next to ours ended up with an ear infection. This helped her greatly. She only needed to use it once and it was gone.
Therma Care: A friend of mine that went ended up with dehydration and exhaustion. She walked over to me and told me she was dizzy. I had her sit down and took off her shoes. I rubbed her feet and used the Therma Care with her. I also had a mini bottle of concentrated minerals. I put some of that in her water too. I know it helped her.
Energy: I sure used this one a lot. This is a blend made by Butterfly Express.
Frankinsense: A little girl got slammed into by a hand cart right in her hip. It sure helped her a lot.
BBL: Natural pain reliever, this helped several people.
Arnica: We used this great homeopathy for not just my husband's mouth, but we also used it for our sore and tired muscles. IT WAS A HUGE HELP!!!
Energy Work: WHOA. Love this. Thank you Heavenly Father for this knowledge. It has helped so many around me already.
I am so grateful that I have learned all of the tools and education. It has helped me to serve in a greater capacity, for sure. :)
I love my Heavenly Father so much and am so grateful that we has given us what we need. Muscle testing is not to replace prayer or Priesthood blessings. Please remember that. Here are some links that will help you learn.
If you should have any questions, please let me know. I am not only willing, but happy to share what we have learned.
