The power and majesty of sandalwood goes far beyond its beautiful aroma. For over 25 years I have used sandalwood for a variety of metaphysical reasons. My guides told me long ago that sandalwood carries an extremely high vibrational frequency. When used as an incense or essential oil it provides a remarkable layer of psychic and spiritual protection. When we think of psychic and spiritual protection, burned as an incense, some of us may immediately think of frankincense and myrrh. We know that these were gifts given to the baby Jesus and for centuries frankincense and myrrh has carried a powerful reputation to expel negative energies. And of course, they do. For many years both frankincense and myrrh were used for exorcisms. That is all well and good, but in my research, I discovered that frankincense and myrrh seem to only effect low level paranormal events, demons and lower vibrational entities. With a new age of spiritual revelations and consciousness manifesting on this planet right now, we are dealing with more than just an “Amityville Horror.”
Currently I am finding that sandalwood, with its immensely high vibrational frequency, is a much better tool in expelling higher level negative energies and demonic beings. The Dark Side detests Sandalwood. I have burned it while saying the Spiritual Lilting, to help clear hauntings and perform exorcisms. I have even used it to encircle protection around those dealing with alien abductions. Sandalwood works every time! Another thing to notice is that some individuals who are irritated by sandalwood have a reason beyond just being “allergic.” I have found that 90% of those that are irritated by sandalwood are suffering from spirit or entity attachments. Its not unlike holy water on the possessed. If you find that you are indeed one of those folks that are bothered by sandalwood incense, or oil, perform the Spiritual Lifting first (linked in this post) and see if that clears up the irritation.
On the flipside, sandalwood is also a wonderful incense to burn while calling for the help and guidance of Angels, Archangels, and our Spirit Guides (The Holy Spirits). Sandalwood can uplift one’s own energy field and put them in a higher sense of awareness. If you feel like you are unable to connect with angelics and guides with clarity, light some sandalwood to enhance a pure channel of communication. Also, if you or someone else in your home is having a bad day, and a bad attitude, light up some sandalwood and watch the energy shift. You can see that adding sandalwood into your daily spiritual practice will not only help you maintain a higher vibrational frequency, but it will keep your heart, mind, and soul in sync with Divine Love.
Please note: Synthetic sandalwood fragrance will not have a psychic or spiritual effect. Choose pure sandalwood, sometimes called chandan when using as an oil, resin or incense.
