Did you know that G-d’s name is found hidden in the pages of Esther’s story? Yes it is there and the awesome amazing part we see G-d’s hand in the story. But here is something you may not know about Esther’s story. She understood the power and frequency of Aroma
We chose our soul mates by smell not by sight or even logic such as wisdom we can chose the right mate just by smell alone. Ever wonder why guys and girls put on perfume and cologne to date.? What smell are they covering up? Remember Esther (Hadassah) taking the Myrrh baths to meet the King? Did it hide her beautiful fragrant identity of the fact she was Jewish? Was she hiding the smell of the ancient perfume of the Ketoret that burned in the Holy Temple of Jerusalem?
It was because Esther carried the scent of the Holy Ketoret deep in her skin. Talmud relates that women, as far away from Jerusalem as Jericho, did not wear perfumes because the fragrance emanating from the Ketoret so filled the air. She was a Jewish young woman named Hadas’sah (the myrtle), but when she entered the royal palace she received the name by which she henceforth became known (Esther 2:7). It is a Syro-Arabian modification of the Persian word satarah, which means a hidden star. Esther’s family did not avail themselves of the permission granted by Cyrus to the exiles to return to Jerusalem, but she had visited Jerusalem many times before she was taken to the grand Palace of King and she knew the Ketoret aroma was deep in her skin. So Esther did not want the King to learn the secret formula so she agreed to the long process of the beauty perfume treatments.
Esther could have met the King all her own as she was. She was just as beautiful on the inside as she was on the outside and the smell of the Ketoret would have easily have won the King’s heart or it would have revealed she was Jewish which was very dangerous. Did the Ketoret just enhanced her pheromones when mixed with the myrrh and other spices? Jewish Sages says that it did and yet the King could not figure out the formula of the Ketoret because it was mixed with the other spices, oils and herbs. So she kept the secret of the Ketoret by never allowing the King to smell it’s true scent.
Esther 2:12 Now when every maid’s turn was come to go in to king Ahasuerus, after that she had been twelve months, according to the manner of the women, (for so were the days of their purifications accomplished, to wit, six months with oil of myrrh, and six months with sweet odours, and with other things for the purifying of the women;).
The sense of smell was the only one of the five senses that was not involved in the sin that took place in Gan Aden. It is the sense which saved the Jewish people in the time of Mordechai and Esther, who are called Mor veHadas which is “myrrh and myrtle”, the two primary sources of fragrance used in the beauty treatments of captive herem of the King Ahasuerus .
Hyacinth represents “Crown” and Queen Esther was said to understand this symbol of the Hyacinth and decided to be beautiful through her choice to honor G-d in the situation she had found herself in. This is why she was chosen for her inner beauty.
Flower petals are normally at the top of a plant reaching for the light of the sun and are the glory and crown of that aromatic plant. Each person is known for their face panim which is located at the top of his/her physical body. The smile on our faces light up our face with positive energy and frequency or when we are sad it can take the light out of our face which means our energy and frequency is drained.
A flower can be wilting or in full bloom in all its glory and beauty, depending upon the frequency energy of our emotions. The top of the head is our “crown.” Its energy can be emanating upward, outward and around as our bio-photon field which is our aura light. It is so true your emotion does affect others around you.
