This resin is a fair trade, sustainable and rare Frankincense from Somalia, where it has traditionally been harvested for medicinal use by local tribes, who are gradually expanding the trade to export some as well. It is quite different from the more familiar “gemmy” Frankincense types we see in the form of hard tears. As with our other Frankincense Neglecta, this Frankincense is black, crystallized and opaque, with a honeyed quality in the middle of the large chunks.
It is a fresher Frankincense than the gemmy types, closer in aroma to the living tree, with warm woody notes that speak of the tree’s living Spirit of adaptative intelligence. We find its energy more mobile, electric, and connecting than that of the gemmy resins, and we have been enjoying exploring it.
The vision Micah was given was of being an island, anchored deep in the ocean, with waves of energy from all around lapping at the shore. It sensitizes the whole body to the currents of energy that surround us, especially if the body is stretched out, open, to allow the limbs to receive like antennae.
It also showed how body positions and movements can either enhance or dampen receptivity to subtle energies, and once this energy is received, it is easy to move around through the body in pulsing waves. We think this would be interesting to take before Yoga, Qi Gong, or related practices.
After some time of sitting in the receptive mode, we fond it equally easy to start sending energy out in waves, and we look forward to seeing what magickal and spiritual practices can be enhanced by this effect.
