Night Terrors banished by frankinscence and myrhh!!

March 2, 2008

It worked Friday night and Saturday night: no night terrors (that I remember anyway!)

What I did: Friday night, about 9pm, I lit a 3 Kings charcoal, placed several nuggets of frankinscence and myrhh on it, and my husband and I sat outside on the deck and talked. I was very stressed out, but as we sat there, and as I inhaled the incense along with the fresh rain cleansed night air, and added more resin as the resins burned out, I began to unwind after about an hour. At about 90 minutes, I felt a wave of relaxation, a wave of release; I felt like I was light, not so weighed down by my troubles, not so overwhelmed by my anxieties, and the requirements of my life. I felt like my head was balanced lightly on my shoulders, and my body balanced lightly on my feet. I felt as relaxed as if I had just had a 90 minute massage, and I was ready to go to bed, ready to sleep, and to sleep peacefully. We sat a little longer, then came into the house and put the burning remains in our shower as we brushed our teeth and got ready for bed so that the scent infused our bedroom.

On Saturday, I burned the resins on and off during the day and the evening. I didn’t ever simply sit with the resins burning, but at the end of the day, I felt relaxed and ready to go to bed.

I wonder if it can be addicting? something to check into… I just realized that a root word in frankincense is incense.
