Arborvitae assists individuals who believe or act like all progress must be made through struggle and solitary effort. Instead of trusting in the Divine, these individuals unconsciously block divine aid, choosing instead to live by their own efforts. Arborvitae addresses the need to control one’s outcomes in life. It invites individuals to live with peace and joy by trusting in the abundant flow of the divine grace.
Arborvitae is also a grounding oil that teaches Divinity is all around. God’s grace can be felt and experienced here on earth; it is not distant or separate. God can help find balance in life and teach what to hold close and what to release.
Arborvitae’s Latin name means “to sacrifice.” This oil invites individuals to sacrifice their personal will and ambitions for a far more fulfilling way of living. By surrendering to God, the mind relaxes and the soul experiences harmony and peace. Arborvitae teaches that true strength can come through emptiness or a willingness to receive God’s strength. It asks individuals to relax, take a deep breath, and trust in the flow of life. Arborvitae assists the soul to live effortlessly by divine grace.
