If you feel sick and nauseous upon smelling incense, there are some things for you to clarify. First, check if the incense you bought contains chemicals. Since artificial incense consists of poisonous chemicals, including benzene, formaldehyde, butadiene, dimethyl benzene, those who are sensitive to energy tend to feel uncomfortable while smelling it. Or, if you burn incense in close surroundings where the ventilation is not good enough, then you may also feel sick, dizzy, or even stuffy.
However, in case you smell natural synthetic incense but still feel uncomfortable, it is likely that you reject the scent of the very product. (In such a case, please refer to another article, titled “Why do some people reject incense and those who burn it?”) Additionally, such a reaction may signal that your body is becoming healthier, because you are getting rid of the negative or filthy energy accumulated in your body by breathing or vomiting. On a deeper level, your emotions can turn more positive, for the fragrance of the incense can trigger some suppressed or unhandled emotions that lie in your sub-consciousness. As a result, you may also feel like crying to let go of those emotions. Such an act actually reminds you to cope with some things in order to improve your life.
When we quiet down and appreciate the incense, the serene atmosphere creates a subtle distance, which separates us from our daily routines or emotions and such a sensation makes us feel more profoundly about beauty, lucidity, and inspection. Under such circumstances, we may feel that we coexist with all the beings and can thus start to ponder over the value and meaning of life. As soon as we pull back all our attention, we build up a very strong bond with our heart and love. Meanwhile, we may also shed tears to clarify and heal ourselves. This makes us more relaxed and peaceful physically and emotionally.
Incense can stabilize our mind and help us eliminate the negative energy in our body and mind. Incense activates the power of love. As our sense of smell awakes, so does our consciousness.
