Oil of Iron
The Oil of Iron is associated with the planetary energies of Mars as well as the Third Chakra center located in the Solar Plexus. This energy center is considered the seat of personal power. It stores the judgments, opinions, and beliefs gathered throughout one's life. Willpower is also said to be positioned here. Representative of the energy and drive of a person, their courage, determination, and the freedom to follow spontaneous impulses. These energies describe the readiness for action, the way one goes about doing things, and healthy aggression. Traditionally this area was said to radiate vital life-energy (prana) throughout the body.
Self-esteem, raw emotion, and self-discipline are governed by this center. It is where we have a mental understanding of our emotional self. The energies of the solar plexus govern how we “digest” our thoughts, feelings, and emotions towards ourselves and our exterior environment. Physically the Oil of Iron works on all systems associated with digestion (Stomach, Intestines, Liver, Gallbladder, Pancreas, etc.). When the Oil of Iron is incorporated into the body, these systems are balanced to help you effectively break down ingested foods and distribute nutrients more adequately. Problems of over- or under-acidity in the digestive system as well as diabetic issues can be balanced with the use of this oil. It also plays an important role in metabolism and the conversion of food into energy.
Spiritually, the Oil of Iron builds upon the two energy centers below it. The self-esteem associated with the energies of Saturn (Oil of Lead) and the raw emotions associated with the energies of Jupiter (Oil of Tin) are elevated and incorporated into the chakra center of the solar plexus. These energies may then be harnessed by the Will to be transmuted towards higher forms of expression and consciousness. When properly balanced this center allows you to thoroughly “digest” your thoughts, feelings, and emotions that are stimulated by the interactions in your interior and exterior environments. With thorough digestion of both physical and emotional intake, the body and consciousness can use these vital energies accordingly so that the organism may flourish.
With energy effectively distributed throughout the body, personal power increases, providing you a better grasp to utilize your Will. This strengthening of Will is the vital aspect of the Oil of Iron. With proper digestion of the thoughts, feelings, and emotions, and the conversion of these energies into power or will, the stage is set for the higher energies of the heart (Oil of Copper) to use these things as tools to reconnect you with infinite and the pure and unadulterated consciousness which is your true self.
