Gathering Essential Oil Blend

Gathering Essential Oil Blend helps overcome the chaotic energy that bombards our everyday life and clouds our focus, thus diverting us from the path leading to higher achievement. Gathering™ combines galbanum and frankincense oils from resins used by Moses for incense with sandalwood to help gather our emotional and spiritual forces so we can achieve greater unity of purpose. 

Wellness: This blend was created to help us overcome the bombardment of chaotic energy that alters our focus and takes us off our path toward higher achievements. Galbanum, a favorite oil of Moses, has a strong effect when blended with Frankincense and Sandalwood in gathering our emotional and spiritual thoughts, helping us to achieve our potential. These oils help increase the oxygen around the pineal and pituitary gland, bringing greater harmonic frequency to receive the communication we desire. This blend helps bring people together on a physical, emotional and spiritual level for greater focus and clarity. It helps one stay focused, grounded and clear in gathering one's potential for self-improvement.

A Singular Experience

Gathering™. Galbanum again. I had a most remark-able experience many years ago while I was studying at the Hebrew University in Jerusalem. Some of you have heard me share this and I will go over it very quickly again. In 1993 I received a fax and to this day I don't know who sent it. It was a typed fax and it said, "Dr. Young. You may find this of interest, that which has been discovered and removed from the twin caves west of Jericho. In the excavation we found three large vases full of scrolls and a little container that had oils in it. They are at the Hebrew University if you have an interest in them." That’s all it was, just a fax, and to this day I know not where it came from.

One week later I was in Jerusalem. I had the opportunity to go there and I won't take the time to share all of it with you today because of the shortness of time, but during that time period they were having all the Palestinians and the Israelites and the fighting and the warring, and the borders were closed and there were Army tankers in the streets and there were bombs going off. It was a horrible time. I had a guard at one of the gates at a government facility who pulled a machine gun on me when I went to get the permit to get into the Hebrew University. It was a strange feeling, but I was there and all I knew was I had received this fax and I had to go.

Amazing Find in Hebrew University

I went to the Embassy there and was given a permit and a pass to go into the Hebrew University, and was allowed to go into the Archeology Department and the archives on the third floor down in the Research Center and I was allowed to see these large vases the scrolls were in. I was allowed to see a scroll that they had started translating and I just kept going back and asking myself, "What is happening here, why am I here? Why am I seeing this, why am I the one who's being allowed to see this?"

I got to see the little terra cotta container that I could hold in my hand and it had a little terra cotta stopper in it and it had a leather thong around the neck of it. To this day the people who worked on the translation committee believe that was the little container that Christ carried on himself that he used during his administering work. I can't refute that and I'm not going to. I'm just telling you what was shared with me. The translating committee had a lot of reasons, and they shared some of that with me.

Spared by Spiritual Prompting

When those caves were opened they found five alabaster jars. Why was that fascinating to me? Because I was in Egypt the year before during the war when they did all the bombing of the buses. I was there at Ramses Square when they blew up the buses and 116 people were killed and I should have been, and wasn't, because I was standing there where the buses were and was going to go into the museum when the Spirit spoke to me, "Gary, go across the street and go to into the University Library and do some studying."

Empower Your Health and Your Life with Young LivingI turned and walked across the street when the bombs blew those buses up. I had a foot and a shoe land three feet from me in the street, and then the military came in behind that bombing and the machine guns were going and glass was shattering and bullets were bouncing off the walls and I dove down behind a little out-cropping of the wall there on the one building where it was like an adjunct for a stairwell going down into the basement and hid down behind that to keep from being mowed down with a machine gun. I was there three days before anyone knew whether I was alive or dead.

I went from there after that was over and I was given the opportunity by a pass from the Antiquities Minister in Egypt to go to upper Egypt. I was in the Temple at Edfu and an old-timer was there who was working as a guard. He came up to me and said, "You speak English?" I said, "Yes."

"Why you here?" "I'm here to study about essential oils." "No, that's not why you're here."

The story of exchange went on and he said, "I tell you why you're here. You are here to learn about the man who came here many years ago that you call Christ." The hair stood up on the back of my neck. He went on and told me a great story that I will have to share sometime later.

In order to cut this short so you will understand where I am going here; he said, "Christ was here five times. He took his training here to become a priest. When he left here he went through a graduate ceremony (and he had other words he used to describe it). When he left here he was given five alabaster jars as his parting gift to take these oils back to his country and use them in his ministry." Those things are not written in the Bible. We can ask why, but I can't answer.

Evidence of Christ in Egypt

The first time I went abroad my Mother wrote and told all my family that, "Gary had been to Europe," but I went 100 times after that and she never wrote another letter about it. The first time you go it's a big thing, but if you go back and second and third time it’s not a big deal. I don't know if that's what happened with Christ. I can't tell you. All I know that these people's history (their records) show that Christ was in Egypt five times. He studied at the Edfu Temple, which was the temple of the priests, and that's where they went to learn priestcraft, and when he went away he left with five alabaster jars that were described to me in detail and the oils that were in those jars.

I was standing in the Archeology Department looking at those five containers! There was something there that is so big we don’t understand, and in those scrolls was this statement translated into English, and it was under glass: "He shall know his children by their scent."

"By His Scent..."

When I took Mary back to Israel I wanted so much for her to see that and it was gone from the exhibit they had there. I called the Archeology Department and asked them where it was, and they said, "We had to take it and put it back in the archives because it was deteriorating." I said, "Can you tell my wife that it truly did exist?" They told her, "Yes, it existed" And it does to this day.

"He shall know his children by their scent." I don't know what that means, I can only tell you what it feels like to me; there is going to be a time somewhere, some place, and I believe his people who are wearing his oils who have lived the way they should may be the ones that will be chosen to stand and come forth as the army to battle the adversary. That is just a personal feeling.

Replicating the Scent

I wanted to create a blend of oils that would be that scent. I wanted to create a blend of oils that would bring a body of people together in purpose and in vision, and I worked on it for years and it just didn’t come together.

It was somewhere around the third or fourth trip to Israel and we were at 38,000 feet. I was working again on the formula and feeling like it just wasn’t coming together when this little voice said, "Galbanum shall be your oil." And I made this blend with Galbanum, Frankincense, Sandalwood, Lavender, Cinnamon, Rose, Spruce, Geranium, and Ylang Ylang. I called it Gathering, gathering your conscious and your spiritual thoughts and bringing them into a single focus. 

Feel the Empowerment

This blend is so powerful to help you emotionally gather yourself, physically gather yourself, spiritually gather yourself and be there to become "one" in the presence of our Father and Creator. If you feel fractured, if you feel scattered, if you feel fragmented, if you feel like you just can't deal with life anymore, you grab Gathering and you put it on and it is going to feel like someone just put a big hand around you and brought you altogether like a piece of clay and molded you into one molecule.

You are going to feel such an empowerment of the spirit that if you don’t shed tears, I will eat the wrapper on the bottle! It will be something for you to behold if you are in that space to behold it. This is one of my chosen blends because of what it has, can, and will do. Anytime that you have been in a space of great compromise with other people this blend of Gathering is one to keep you centered and focused on what you chose to do in life. You want to step up out of the ashes, you want to get up out of the rut that you've been in, you want to become the person you desire and feel you'd like to be? Then you take Gathering and put it with Inspiration™ and Highest Potential™ and you are going to have an experience that will be life-changing!

There are so many things I have learned from the Gathering™ oil. I wear it a lot just as an aftershave. I love it so much and the feeling that it creates. When you are into your meditation it is so easy to get the mind fractured (and I did this with you yesterday if you remember), put it on your right temple and come across to the left temple.

Using Galbanum to Integrate

You've heard this saying, "Right-minded people, left-minded people; you've got to be in your right mind to be creative. Scientists, etc. have to be in their left mind..." whatever that all means. I don't really know, but I know that we are all individuals and we all spend different parts of time in different parts of our brain and sometimes some of us are more analytical than others, and some are more realistic than others.

If you feel that you are not in a creative mode, then start with Galbanum, rubbing it on the left temple clockwise three times and then come across to the right side of the temple and rub it three times. What this does energetic-wise is to help in integrating the left brain with the right brain. If you are in your right brain and you are feeling so creative that you can’t balance your checkbook, then put it on the right temple and go three times and then bring it across to the left side because you are bringing the energy of the right brain and integrating it with the left brain and creating that balance, and then go three times on the left temple. You can repeat that as many times as you desire.

Become One with the Universe

Part of what I have discovered with Gathering™ wasn't so much about what I saw and learned at the University that created this feeling, this awakening inside of me and this desire to create the Gathering™, but it was more about gathering our own thoughts to help us focus and to help us become one with the universe and God, our Creator. So that is really where it wound up taking me personally and what it can do for us as a personal individual.

It's so easy to get fractured. Your thoughts are going in all directions and you are having trouble focusing, and anytime you feel that way, then Gathering™ is there to help you focus. Gathering™ is a very great companion to Envision™, so work with those two together. Highest Potential™ with Envision™ and Gathering™ and Motivation™ comes in there and fits at the back just as the Clarity™ is coming in and the Envision™ is coming in.

If you feel yourself tripping up and you are into meditation and you are trying to create the image of what you want to see as your future, and these little voices keep coming, just put a little Clarity™ on to filter the information that is trying to get in.
