Psychology of smell

Have you ever taken yourself back in time with a specific scent?

Can you remember how it made you feel?

When we smell something it bypasses different parts of the brain and goes directly to the part that is responsible for memory and emotions – the olfactory bulb.

This phenomenon triggers memories and is called, “the Proust effect”. A complex system of nerves and pathways in our brain involving different parts which affect our moods and basic emotions that is called the Limbic system.

Close your eyes and take 3 deep breaths in and out slowly.

Allow yourself to start using your imagination without letting any fears get in the way.

Light your candle and begin the ritual with gratitude.

Write down 3 things you are grateful for today.

Mediate on what was written and take another 3 deep breaths. Avoid any distractions at this time. Take this time to look at the candle and watch the flame flickering.

I invite the energy inside of me. I welcome the light into my soul, it provides me protection and guidance so that I may know my way. Thank you for the warmth and patience you provide.

At this time, tell yourself what you pray for, what you are asking God, the Source, the Universe for. Allow yourself to feel as if it is already here.

Open your eyes and take another 3 breaths in and out, slowly releasing them and giving thanks.
