UNBECOMING: Your Unorthodox Guide to Radical Wholeness

Chapter Ten: Unbecoming in the world


Essential Oils

Black Pepper

Black Pepper Oil derives from a vine plant which produces small red berries which are dried and distilled to form Black Pepper Oil. In Ancient Rome, Black Pepper Oil was nicknames ‘Black Gold’ as it was a high value commodity and used in trade and as a currency. Besides its very common and distinct spicy aroma, Black Pepper oil has also been used for its warming properties and to soothe digestion, relieve pain and even improve weight loss. Black Pepper Oil has been used in spiritual practices for grounding and to ward off negative energies. It is associated with the third eye and for use in increasing intuition.

From Morgana

Black pepper is a newer addition to my essential oil repertoire, it’s one I’ve only been using for 5-10 years. It’s so easy for us to take the simple peppercorn for granted, but as a quantum archaeologist, I’m conscious at all times of the role played by pepper and other spices in the rise and fall of empires, and the emergence of the world as we know it today. Pepper was once worth more than its weight in gold, and that legacy of abundance is part of its cultural-spiritual essence. It’s grounding, protective, and known for being a potent aid for amplifying the manifestation of your intentions, making it a beautiful accompaniment to Unbecoming.

Practice Reminder

My favourite, super lazy way to use it, is to put 1-4 drops of black pepper essential oil into 1 teaspoon (5ml) of carrier oil (I like fractionated coconut or apricot kernel) and then massage the soles of your feel with it in the morning. It boosts circulation, boosts action taking, and amplifies all manifestation work. Just remember to make sure and wash your hands really well with warm soapy water afterwards, to make sure you don’t get any in your eye. And have socks, and well fitting, non-slip footwear ready beside you, to put on after you’re finished each foot, to make sure you don’t slip. Always make sure to check all safety information for any oil before you try using it. For more information, get the download here.

Why I picked these oils

When I was choosing the oils to accompany Unbecoming the book was already written and had already been read by 100s of people around the world. Adding them wasn’t a planned part of the book, but rather an acknowledgement of what the work actually takes - Unbecoming doesn’t happen in isolation, but in practice, with tools that support you every day, even when you’re not actively “doing the work”.

Over the 2 years since I completed writing on the first edition, I’ve been reflecting on what tools and guides have best accompanied my own Unbecoming throughout life, as it’s a process I’ve essentially always been in. Beyond that, which have best served mentees in my various different roles as a leader and facilitator of spiritual growth, over the past 27 years. The more I looked, the more I realised essential oils were everywhere - they were literally the reason I was thrown out of church in the first place.

The six oils I selected ultimately reflect the needs we have when we’re cut loose from a reality that felt real to us, albeit restrictive and ill-fitting, and begin to create anew. We need to cleanse negative energies with a clear head (eucalyptus), and to reconnect to nature and our own true nature (virginian cedarwood). We need to take back our power (ginger) and to ground into and amplify our own being and intentions (black pepper). We need to heal our wounds, grieve and move forwards positively (marjoram) and to consider what our own Unbecoming means for past, present and future generations, reconciling where we’ve been with where we wish to go as we move forwards, individually and collectively (Siberian fir). 

These oils are all incredibly potent on their own, but also offer many beautiful blending options to meet your changing needs day-by-day as you explore your own Unbecoming and the infinite expansion it offers.

I found so much wholeness in myself, in my relationships and my happiness. And out of it was born a beautiful business. And it hasn’t even been a year yet. And I fivexed my revenue. I have consistent sales. I’m overly fully booked with one to one with the most beautiful clients. And one of the things that I think is so important is I have clarity. after all the healing that we did created this beautiful business that it could not be more perfect for me. It’s everything. It’s using my story, my journey, and, I mean, I attract clients so effortlessly. There are now dream clients that come forward, and it’s everything.
