How to Use Lime Essential Oil
Posted on February 3rd, 2014 | 2 comments
Young Living’s Lime essential oil has a wide variety of uses. Aromatically, the pleasant citrus scent is invigorating and may help promote mental clarity and encourage creativity.* Topically, Lime provides antioxidants to the skin, which may reduce dark spots due to aging and acts as an insect deterrent.* Taken internally, Lime supports a healthy digestive system and may aid in weight management. One of most versatile uses for Lime essential oil, however, is for cooking.

Before adding Lime or any other Young Living essential oil to a recipe, start by adding half of a drop (put a toothpick inside the oil bottle orifice and stir the toothpick into the recipe) and then add more to taste. Because it’s so highly concentrated, you don’t need to use very much Lime essential oil to get the fresh lime flavor that can make your recipes pop. A great idea is to combine olive oil with Lime essential oil and use it as a marinade for meat or veggies. For an extra kick of flavor, you can also substitute Lime essential oil for lemon in many recipes.
Here are a couple of easy recipe ideas:

Delicious Limeade
2 cups crushed ice
1 cup water
Fresh fruit (strawberries, cherries, etc.)
1-2 drops Lime essential oil
Fill a blender with ice and water. Add fresh fruit and 1-2 drops of Lime essential oil. Blend and enjoy!
Lime Yogurt Sauce
Young Living Stevia Extract, Yacon Syrup, or Blue Agave (sweeten to taste)
1 quart plain unsweetened or soy yogurt
6 drops Lime essential oil
Add all ingredients together and stir. Use the sauce over fruit or dessert.

Science Now Explains How Our Thinking Limits Our Consciousness

by Access Administrator on January 2, 2013

“If you’re thinking, you’re stinking!” is a favorite refrain of Access Consciousness® founder Gary Douglas and many other facilitators.

Now evolutionary psychologists have come up with an explanation of how we can, in effect, think so stupidly. As usual with Access Consciousness®, consciousness creates an awareness and then science catches up.

Psychology believes that what it calls “compartmentalized brain functions acting either in concert or in conflict” are the result of how the brain evolved. The brain evolved as a “Swiss Army knife of practical tools or an app-loaded iPhone,” according to research psychologists quoted in the January, 2013, issue of Scientific American.

According to this view of science, “there is no unified ‘self’ that generates internally consistent and seamlessly coherent beliefs devoid of conflict. Instead, we are a collection of distinct but interacting modules often at odds with one another.”

This is evolutionary psychology explaining why it can be so hard for us to absorb certain concepts in Access Consciousness®, or why, as Gary says, “You get it when you get it if you get it.” When you get it can often be after years of exposure to Access Consciousness®. Compartmentalized brain functions (otherwise known as “logic-tight compartments) are a scientific way of explaining what we have already observed occurs.

Consider using the words “awareness beyond this reality” or “consciousness” instead of “new scientific theories” in the quotes below:

“Compartmentalization is also at work when new scientific theories/awareness beyond this reality conflict with older and more naive beliefs. Several psychologists found that “subjects more quickly verified the validity of scientific statements when those statements agreed with their prior naive beliefs.” Couldn’t “prior naive beliefs” be another way of saying “everything we’ve been taught, believed, or were implanted with?”

The article continues, “Contradictory scientific statements were processed more slowly and less accurately, suggesting that ‘naive theories survive the acquisition of mutually incompatible scientific theory, co-existing with that theory for many years to follow.’”

Have you ever sat in a class where someone in the front row argued forcefully for their own worldview? Check out what else psychologists have to say:
“Northwestern University researchers found that when subjects’ closely held beliefs were shaken, they ‘engaged in more advocacy of their beliefs …than did people who’s confidence was not undermined.’”

Do you remember hearing Gary say “whatever people are trying to prove, they really believe the opposite?” Science is now figuring this out as well. “Enthusiastic evangelists of a belief may in fact be ‘boiling over with doubt,’ and thus their persistent proselytizing may be a signal that the belief warrants skepticism,” continues the article.

Morality, another limitation that Gary speaks about, creates even more distortion, say these psychologists. “Our moral emotions lead us to bend and distort data and evidence through a process called motivated reasoning. The module housing our religious preferences, for example, motivates believers to seek and find facts that support a biblical model of a young earth in which the overwhelming evidence of an old earth must be denied. The module containing our political predilections, if they are of a conservative bent, may motivate pro-capitalists to believe that any attempt to curtail industrial pollution by way of the threat of global warming must be a liberal hoax.”

Interestingly, the article does ask, “What can be done to break down the walls separating our logic-tight compartments?” Scientists from Western Australia had some suggestions, which just could apply to those attending and facilitating Access Consciousness® classes. “Consider what gaps in people’s mental event models are created by debunking, and fill them using an alternative explanation. To avoid making people more familiar with misinformation, emphasize the facts you wish to communicate rather than the myth.”

“Provide an explicit warning before mentioning a myth, to ensure that people are cognitively on guard and less likely to be influenced by the misinformation…” Isn’t this another way of describing what Gary does when he tells people at the beginning of an advanced event, “Welcome to the end of your life as you know it…”

The article continues, “Consider whether your content may be threatening to the world view and values of your audience. If so, you risk a worldview backfire event.” Is there anyone who has facilitated introductory classes who has not witnessed this happening?

Perhaps like all of us, there is one logic-tight compartment that the writer of this article did not penetrate—and that is the dominance of truth and scientific thought as we know it. “How (can) intelligent and educated people, in the face of overwhelming contradictory evidence, believe that evolution is a myth, that global warming is a hoax, that vaccines cause autism and asthma, that 9/11 was orchestrated by the Bush administration?” the article asked at the beginning.

What might happen if these and other unquestionable scientific beliefs were subjected to some questions, Access Consciousness® style? Might some compartment walls break down and some other interesting points of view emerge? Access Consciousness® might just move ahead of science yet again.

All of the quotes above were taken from the article, Logic-Tight Compartments, on p 77 of the January 2013 Scientific American. Many psychologists from all over the world were quoted in the article, written by Michael Shermer, publisher of Skeptic magazine. You could comment on the article at

What the Bleep is Matrix Energetics?
by Jennifer Buergermeister

Newtonian Physics, out…Quantum Physics, in! With mainstream movies like The Matrix, The Butterfly Effect and What the Bleep Do We Know popping up in theatres – no kidding! How can we escape the latest shift in thinking about discoveries in energy, reality, the body and our own existence? After traveling across the United States to meet Dr. Richard Bartlett and Dr. Mark Dunn, “two wild and crazy guys” (I mean that in the best sense), in Seattle, I have to ask myself what in the bleep is going with what they call “Matrix Energetics: A total system of transformation based in the laws of subtle energy physics, consciousness and focused intent”.

“…And everyone can do it.”
With the greatest compassion and love for their work, Dr. Bartlett and Dr.Dunn captivated the room with their insights on transformation through movement, light touch, intent and the power of the imagination. They aretwo truly loving spirits, destined to help others realize their own healing and transformational potential.

“Matrix Energetics is a previously undiscovered, intent driven, universal, expression of energy which is harmonious with the concepts and laws of quantum physics,” said Dr. Bartlett. “All physical structure has an energetic template upon which it is based and is an interface between physical reality and the quantum energetic hologram.”

The “matrix” of the body is comprised of endless pathways at the cellular level. Communication becomes interrupted and impaired when the body experiences trauma, disease, injury or disorder. Matrix Energetics reestablishes a balanced state in the body’s flow of communication.

But I tell you… after spending a weekend with these two spiritual doctors, scientists, and energy transformers, I soon began to also understand that laughter and play are two key elements in quantum healing, and in instant transformation of the body’s matrix. If everything is energy, and if our bodies contain and consist of energy frequencies, then why can’t we change our frequencies instantly into a healthy, balanced state and become illness-free simply through intent, playful imagination and “feeling, with focus”? Dr. Bartlett and Dr. Dunn have joined an ever growing league of doctors such as Deepak Chopra, Dr. Eric Pearl and Dr. Bernie Siegel, who agree that both energy and emotions play a fundamental role in miraculous healings. If I had any ailments before this seminar, they’ve surely been laughed right out of my system! I guess sometimes we just need a good “laughsitive” for “jestive relief.” It’s “FUNdamental” in our “dysFUNsional” society.” (Swami Beyondananda, in “Duck Soup for the Soul”)

Get out of the way and allow yourself to play ~ Dr. Bartlett.

In Seattle, people were transforming physically in front of my eyes! Drs. Bartlett and Dunn say it’s simply playing a game with the universe, using light touch and the power of intent as starting points in getting the body to shift. As a “facilitator of change”, you are free to make up the rules as you go along. They showed it’s sometimes as simple as locating hard spots in the body and then imagining them linked, and balanced. For instance, one “game” for the spine involves imagining railroad workers putting in a new backbone “railway.”

“Imagination is more important than Knowledge.” ~ Albert Einstein

And anyone can do it? Is your head spinning yet? Here’s my first experience with Matrix Energetics:

When I returned from Seattle, I visited a Starbucks next to The Good Space Pilates and Yoga Studio, off Woodway. A “baristas” who took my order was complaining of an old back injury from two years ago. She was in pain, so I asked her to try and remember three years ago when her back felt normal. She laughed at the possibility but, with seriousness, I asked her again to access the memory how her back felt before the accident. By her eye patterns I could tell she was experiencing kinesthetics (an NLP term used to identify and access mental states and feelings), and that cued me to anchor or tap her head to awaken the neurological system of that memory. I then tapped her chest so she’d neurologically store the feeling, while remembering her back’s healthy state. She was very receptive to the “facilitation.”

Moments later, the woman stated that her arm was tingling, and within two minutes her back pain was gone! She began swaying her hips back and forth in a dance, screaming out joyously to the patrons and the universe that her pain had disappeared. I was just as surprised. As she was accessing her memory of a healthy back, I was imagining her body expanding out like a hologram, simultaneously holding the intent that it would reorganize itself into its previous healthy state. We played a game with the holographic universe and it worked! I saw her again several weeks later and there was still no trace of the pain.

At a subatomic level, we’re no different than a mountain, a chair or a river. We are a system of dancing particles, each with our own “matter casserole” recipe. There are group similarities, but no two the exactly same. Every life form has a genetically coded map that it follows, and in it is the blueprint for balance and harmony in the organism’s frequencies. Einstein said, “Everything is emptiness and form is condensed emptiness.” If you were to look through a subatomic lens, the world would look like particles floating in empty space – a timeless reality.

To change our emotions and unhealthy physical states we need to alter our perceptions. For change and transformation to occur we have to blow-out the boundaries of anything negatively stored in the body. Be in the NOW! There’s no place like the present moment. We have to think BIG and understand that there’s so much more going on in the universe than meets the eye; that reality isn’t 2- or even 3-dimensional. And according to quantum physics, time itself is an illusion.

Time is illusory because past and future are connected to the present as possibilities. Our reality (i.e. the universe) is a hologram; and at any instant, consciousness is the totality of the coherent signaling within the living matrix – including wave fronts reflected from specific information-containing structures maintained by our choices on a moment-to-moment basis – shaping our experiences of the world. We each have valuable roles in the big picture…the matrix. Everything is connected to everything else holographically somehow.

Consider that in the making of a holographic image – say, of an apple – no matter how many times we cut out pieces, it always projects the entire apple. The entire tree is in the seed. So… does that mean our bodies are a part of something else “out there” that’s “the whole”? How in the bleep does that happen? And who, or what, is the “projector” of this reality?

Neurophysiologist Karl Pribram said, “The human nervous system is a hologram of the universe. At any moment when you think about it, no matter what you think you are, you are always more than that.”

All this information about quantum physics and The Matrix left me with one question: If the universe and our bodies are holographic, then what, exactly, are we a hologram of? Is this where science and religion finally meet? I’ll leave that for you to decide.

How to Find What You’re Really Looking for In Relationship
How’s your search for love going?  Have you found the right person yet?

“There is one person who makes the whole difference here,” says Dr. Dain Heer, author of Being You, Changing the World and co-author of Sex Is Not A Four Letter Word But Relationships Often Times Is. “If you were willing to be intimate with that one person—it would give you the choice to have it with anyone else in your life, as it worked for you and as you deserved it.”

What if having the relationship you’re longing for did require finding the right person, but that right person was someone you never expected?  What if the person you’ve been searching for in relationship were actually YOU?

Relationship might not actually be what we’re looking for, says Heer.  Relationship by definition means the distance between two objects. In a relationships there always has to be distance.  Very often, that distance is between you and you, as you give up you in order to fit in to this reality by having a relationship.

Heer says that what most of us are looking for instead of relationship is intimacy, where you are in communion or oneness.  In oneness, everything exists and nothing is judged.  Isn’t that more of what you’re really looking for?

-Intimacy does not require copulation—believing that it does is a great mis-identification of what intimacy is. You can have intimacy with everyone, if you’re willing to.  But the person you have find to begin having intimacy is you.

There are five components to intimacy, according to Heer and his co-author, Access Consciousness® co-founder Gary Douglas.  These components are honor, trust, allowance, vulnerability, and gratitude.

Honor means to treat with regard, “in all ways.  Always,” says Heer.

He cites an example that may shock some.  What if you were attracted to someone for the sexualness they had available?  Then once they got into relationship with you, they decided they couldn’t flirt with anyone else anymore?  What if they decided that would be dishonoring of their partner?

“Because you flirt doesn’t mean you’re going home with someone,” Heer points out.  “Because you flirt means you’re flirtatious!  It might even mean you’re a little more alive!  It might mean you’re a little more fun!”  That very flirtatiousness might be what attracted them to you in the first place.

“You might ask your partner how they feel about it before you go about eliminating some part of you that they may adore.”  Eliminating that part of you would be dishonoring your partner and dishonoring you!

The second component of intimacy is trust. “Trust means trusting the person will be exactly as they were when you first met them.”  It does not mean having faith that they will change as you believe they should—even if you know that’s in their best interest.  That’s setting yourself up for “a dismal, abysmal failure in the relationship.  That’s blind faith and it doesn’t work,” says Heer.

Allowance is the third component of intimacy.  Allowance is where anything and everything the other person chooses is just an interesting point of view.  “The minute you go into judgment, you’re out of allowance and out of intimacy.  You can either have intimacy or judgment.  Your choice,” he says.

“What if all of your points of view could be just interesting points of view?  Would you and your partner have more ease?  More freedom?  Less judgment?  This is one of the keys to eliminating judgment in your life and going beyond it.”

The fourth element of intimacy is vulnerability.  Vulnerability is like the open wound which hasn’t scabbed over.  Every breeze that goes by it is excruciatingly intense.

Though many of us have been told or concluded that vulnerability is a bad thing, without it no receiving is possible.  The barriers you put up to vulnerability may appear to protect you, but those same barriers also keep you trapped.

“For every single one of those barriers you erect, you have to judge whether you’re doing it right or not, and whether it’s working or not, and whether it is indeed keeping out the bad evil thing you wanted to keep out.  This keeps you in a constant state of judgment and takes a huge amount of energy.

“If you’re truly willing to be there with no barriers to someone, it creates a totally different possibility.  It creates a softness in you, a receiving of everything, and it invites that possibility for them as well.”

Gratitude, the fifth element of intimacy, has a number of advantages over love.  As he sees it, love requires judgment, whereas gratitude does not.

“You judge to see how much you love someone and how they’re loving you, or not loving you, and how you’re living up to it, or not living up to it.
“If you’ve been with somebody longer than 10 seconds you’re already in judgment of him or her.  That’s why the longer you’re with someone the more separate you feel from them.  You build walls of judgment around you and they build walls of judgment around them and then you can’t get any closer than the walls of judgment will allow.”

“You can either be grateful or have judgment,” he says.  “Which would you like to choose?”

In direct contrast to what you’ve been told, says Heer, “vulnerability is not weakness.  On the contrary, it’s the place of true power and potency.  Why?  Because when you have no barriers and no judgments, you can have total awareness of everything since you have no barriers shutting it off and total power and potency available.”

Using the five elements of intimacy can allow a totally different relationship to be possible.

Beyond the components of intimacy, another reason that the person to start with when looking for relationship or intimacy is YOU is the tendency so many of us have to give ourselves up to make a relationship—sometimes any relationship, no matter how bad—work.

This is actually the opposite of what really works.  When you have someone who won’t divorce themselves for anyone, that person becomes a leader.  By Heer’s definition, a leader is someone who knows where they are going, does not require followers, and is willing to go where they’re going whether anyone else goes or not.

When two people who are leaders are in a relationship, it creates a place where each of them is willing to allow the other person to be who they are.  Both people desire the other person to grow, to be more, and to expand, because they are inspired, rather than threatened, by it.  “The people who have the best relationships actually have their own lives,” observes Heer.

“Relationship is awesome so long as it is a contribution to your life.  If you want to have a relationship, you should have a great and phenomenal one!”

Survey Confirms Men Are Always Wrong
but Access Consciousness® Has a Way to Change That!

(and Other Aspects of Relationships)

One of the consequences of the women’s movement is that it’s destroyed most of the roles men knew they could count on in their lives, Gary Douglas, founder of Access Consciousness® has observed.  The definitions and expectations of men are so unclear that men are left wondering exactly what they should be and do.

This societal-wide change has made relationships between the sexes more difficult. A recent survey of 1000 adults in Britain, published this month in the British newspaper the Daily Mail, has confirmed and even quantified this.

The things that men do poorly, according to the survey, include buying clothes for women, remembering anniversaries and birthdays, dancing, ironing, cooking, domestic shores, buying gifts, multi-tasking, keeping up with fashion, and picking furniture.  Less than 10 per cent of women thought men could iron a shirt and only 4 per cent said they could dance.

Men’s value has not been totally eroded, from the viewpoint of these contemporary women.  Sixty per cent of them rated men at good of getting rid of spiders.  Fifty six per cent rated them better than women at barbecue skills (not the most useful skill considering British weather) and 73 per cent rated them competent at changing tires.

While women still rated men as good at home improvement projects—called DIY or Do It Yourself in Britain—almost half the men reported that they had hurt themselves while doing them.

Is there any hope?  Can this be changed?  Should men be used as sperm donors, tire changers and spider killers and then sent out to pasture?

The way out, as Douglas so often has found, is in taking an entirely different point of view.  The Daily Mail aligns and agrees with the point of view of most women that men are useless.  Is that true, or is it a judgment which limits both women and men from perceiving and receiving what men’s contributions can actually be?

All judgments, as well as decisions and conclusions, limit what we can perceive and receive to only the aspects of reality that agree and reinforce our fixed points of view.  The Daily Mail article, which was titled, “Yes, men are good for nothing!” brilliantly expresses the prevailing point of view of women in this reality.  But does having that point of view, or women having that point of view about men, actually serve either women or men?  Does it contribute anything but discord and discontent to relationships between the sexes? Or does the assumption that if the tree falls in the forest and no one hears it, but the man is still wrong, contribute to the destruction of the possibility of intimacy, caring, and nurturing between the sexes?

The key to getting out of this trap that judgment creates is getting out of judgment.  The way out of judgment is to recognize no point of view is right or wrong, or good or bad, but merely an interesting point of view.  This applies to other’s points of view, but it is most useful to apply to our own.

What if women were to question the very small corner into which they have painted men and into which men have allowed themselves to be painted?  What if we were to use questions in relationships between the sexes instead of assumptions, conclusions and judgments?

Some questions that could be useful could be to ask, “What contribution can I be to this person’s life?” and “What contribution am I willing to receive from him/her?”  If you wished to be really honest with yourself, you could also look at “What contributions am I refusing from this person?”

What if men, far from being as useless as most women assume they are, are really almost dying to be a contribution to the lives of women they love—if only women will receive them?

And men could ask themselves, “What if there were nothing wrong with me?”  That would certainly fly in the face of the assumptions the Daily Mail article so succinctly presents.  We tend to diminish ourselves and the value of the gifts and contributions we are when we attempt to give them to others, only to have them refused or not received.  If men could realize that women’s refusing of their gifts was a reflection of the women’s judgments, not a wrongness in them, what wounds could be healed?

Gary Douglas, best selling author and founder of Access Consciousness®, is the author of two books and numerous recorded classes on the relationships between the sexes and changing the paradigms of this reality.

What are essential oils?
Sometimes called the “life force” of a plant, therapeutic grade essential oils are very complex. They are stored in special cells, ducts or glandular hairs that are distributed among the flowers, leaves, bark, stems and roots of a plant. These oils protect the plant from insects and other herbivores, from bacteria, molds, fungi and other micro-organisms. They also help to heal inflicted wounds. These unique characteristics make essential oils highly beneficial to humans. A single oil may contain hundreds of constituents that are molecularly aligned in exactly the right manner to trigger a number of responses in the human body. Essential oils are used by chiropractors, aromatherapists, reflexologists, massage therapists and others interested in alternatives to prescription drugs.


What is aromatherapy?
It is the use of therapeutic grade essential oils to affect mood and promote natural healing. Some people buy various oils but rarely use them because they don’t know how. This website will help change that by showing the various ways essential oils can be used in natural healing. How many times have you had a situation where you didn’t know what oil to use? In the past, you had to pull out a book or ask friends. Now you can use our basic keyword search to assist you. Chances are good that others have experienced the same types of situations that you have.

A Note from Melissa
Universal Consciousness Knows Itself Through You

We tend to perceive change as being something that is threatening because it feels uncertain, and it feels out of control. Change does not have to be difficult.  Life does not have to be a struggle.  You are never stuck.  Options are always available to you.  All of the information that you have ever needed, could ever need, or will ever need is available to you in this infinite library of resources that is boundaryless, limitless, and constantly expanding.  That is that which is the field of the heart; that is that which is you; that is that which is universal consciousness referencing itself through you in order to know itself more expansively.
