Tools for Memory: Retention, Recall, and Reminiscence

As we move deeper into the energy of autumn, I find myself reminiscing about childhood, Halloween, and the whirlwind of past holiday seasons. Scents bring up memories. Odors and scents conjure up emotions. In fact, the sense of smell is the most powerful trigger of childhood memories. For instance, have you ever opened a box stored in the attic—maybe containing an old toy, Christmas decorations, or a holiday tablecloth—and the scent of whatever it is wafts from the box, flooding your consciousness with memories of a specific day or experience? The olfactory sense (our ability to process a smell) is the primary trigger of that memory.

There are many gifts of the earth that are perfect for memory and mental clarity. In past GemSpots and AromaSpots I shared how clear quartz, golden calcite, lime, lemon, and others gems and essential oils can be allies for the intention of retention and recall for work and study as well as spiritual growth. Now, let’s connect with the fossil, orthoceras, and the essential oil, rosemary. (Regarding the orthoceras, fossils are the preserved remains of animals, animal parts, plants, and other living organisms from the past. Generally, fossils are composed of rocks that contain limestone. Orthoceras fossils are elongated shells generally fossilizing in limestone.)

On a spiritual level, rosemary, a hardy evergreen shrub, helps you awaken spiritual memory and focus. The ancient energy of rosemary provides a deeper understanding of yourself through enhanced memory retrieval of previous incarnations. Inhale this essential oil to rid yourself of negative self-talk and clear your mind when preparing for meditation, prayer, and other spiritual practices. Use this essential oil as a reminder to stay mindful and use self-observation practices for personal development.

Rosemary Essential Oil

Inner work is good, and a fossil nearby can serve as a reminder to take time for self-examination—without judgment, of course!

On a spiritual level, the ancient energy of orthoceras provides a deeper understanding of oneself through enhanced memory retrieval of previous incarnations, which is a matching vibration while you employ rosemary essential oil for the same purpose. This fossil is ideal to use prior to, during, and after regression therapy to make the most of memories of past experiences and the lessons. Hold the orthoceras in one hand or keep it nearby as you pause for contemplation and journaling to deepen the realizations derived from the regression experience.

On a physical level—whether you are an accountant, a doctor, a hair stylist, or a student—rosemary can be your ally to help with memory, mental clarity, and recall while also acting as an insect repellent or a disinfectant. The orthoceras will help you dig into your memory banks to call up any knowledge you have in store.

In addition to the rosemary and the orthoceras, you can also connect with Archangel Uriel to be your heavenly assistant to tune into wisdom and higher knowledge. Archangel Uriel is a perfect companion to call on to increase your awareness during spiritual practices. The wisdom and peace that flows on the vibration of Uriel’s wings offers mental clarity to retain and use the higher guidance. Imagine the golden ray of Archangel Uriel streaming through your consciousness to not only remember but to integrate the wisdom.

Use this affirmation through this month as Archangel Uriel lights your path. Inhale the rosemary and gaze at the othoceras and repeat:

I am clear, energized, and connected. I am grateful for all my creative and business skills. I earn unlimited income doing what I love. I have great mental and emotional clarity. It is easy for me to awaken my consciousness and be fully present in my daily activities. I am grounded and focused.
