I love to write and am always filled with ideas, but if you noticed you haven’t heard from me, the words just died. I’ve sat down numerous times at me computer hit the “Word” button and nothing….
And then it hit me! I have been so immersed in all the wrong things happening in my life (just normal life, but oh so many), that no wonder I couldn’t write—who wants to hear a sad song? I will tell you what changed—the doTERRA Emotional Oils!
I’ve been diffusing them and applying them for the last week or so and I feel so much better! I ended up relying on four of the six emotional oils—Motivate, Cheer, Forgive and Console! (The other two are Passion, which is the Inspiring Blend and Peace the Reassuring Blend)
Briefly, Motivate is the Encouraging Blend, Cheer is the Uplifting Blend, Forgive is the Renewing Blend, and Console is the Comforting Blend. Using these four oils had a tremendous effect on my emotional balance and gave me a sense of uplift, joy and understanding.
Let’s be honest, we all go through emotional times and sometimes get lost in what we feel is raining hardship and can’t figure a way out or up! That was me! Then I thought-why don’t I give the Emotional Oils a try and I was blown away!
Often we hear of all the oils and products of doTERRA but many people are unaware that doTERRA addresses our emotional balance. When we’re not balanced emotionally, we can often experience body pain, stress, lack of sleep and a feeling of just wanting to be alone. Get your emotions balanced and it changes not only your emotions, but also your entire body. My result has been the ability to write again and serve you with helpful information!

Thank you and warm wishes,
I’ve been sitting here reviewing the past year as 2016 draws to a close and thinking ‘what a roller coaster’ this has been! The first thoughts that came to me were those of pain-losing my brother, a dear friend having a stroke, another dear friend’s struggle with her sister’s health and even financial worries. Why is it that the pain invades us first and often we forget about the joys and beautiful lessons learned throughout the past year?
I decided to change my thoughts, live in the present and celebrate new ideas and birth! Yes, I know everyone tells you that, but do we practice it? I am about to have a grandson—my daughter is having her second child tomorrow! Is there anything more joyful than a new life? A little soul that actually does live in the present—he only needs love, food, rest and a new diaper- oh, if life were that simple once we age? There is so much beauty and love all around us and, often, we don’t take the moment to notice something as simple as a smile! Sure there’s a lot going on in this world that causes us stress and pain, but in some way that’s all part of life—nobody gets through life unscathed.
So, for the rest of 2016 and for 2017, let’s put our focus on the beautiful little things that we often over look. Yes, be present, be present now! The past is gone and the future is just the past projected forward into worry and concern. You have absolutely no control over the future—too many of us have realized that! The only thing you control is how you react in this moment—why not make it happy?
My wish for you during this beautiful holiday season, no mater what your religion or beliefs, is to enjoy each little moment-it’s a muscle we don’t use very often! If you exercise it, just like other muscles, it will grow in strength and you won’t have to remind yourself to stay present because it will be a part of you.
Enjoy your family, your friends, your lover, and even the meeting of a new stranger. Stay open and warm and wait until you see what happens—it feels like a miracle, but it’s really just the best part of life!
Take care and be well. Wishing you peace throughout the coming year!
Recently there has been a lot of turmoil in my life and it’s the reason I haven’t been writing lately. During this time, I really have learned a lot about myself, my family and my life in general and, although it’s been difficult as we walk through life, it’s the bumps that make us grow.
I’ve recently moved to Leesburg, VA from Bethesda, MD and I had forgotten just how difficult moving could be. I have had a number of surgeries on my back, knees and feet and I felt every one of those places every day. The packing and then unpacking took its toll—I moved from a home all on one floor to a townhouse with 5 landings and boxes that weren’t marked correctly. Ah, but the freedom of de-cluttering and making room for more to enter my life has been wonderful– a lesson well learned from a difficult move!
I hadn’t been in my new townhouse a month, when my brother unexpectedly died in his sleep. His heart just stopped and there’s no other explanation. He was 70, and I was totally shell-shocked and became somewhat depressed. Many lessons learned here—live each day to the fullest, treasure your family and know we only have the present moment so use it all up!
I know, because I did, we live each day thinking we’re safe and in control—look at Orlando! And, we can’t live in fear of what’s going to happen because that takes the joy out of life. I don’t want to live in a world of fear and stress and I’m sure many of you feel exactly the same way.
So… how can you change those feelings and live your life in joy?
I can only say how I did it and maybe some of you will relate or learn a new way. First, I relied on family and friends. My daughter lives near, but my son, who lives in Oregon, flew home and they both supported me during my time of grief. Friends called to chat and kept checking up on me. They even made me laugh-humor is so important in my lifeand should have a place in everyone’s existence.
I used my HeartMath® to relieve stress by using the simple, yet effective techniques to help me become coherent and at ease. They have a game, where by breathing and by visualizing something wonderful, you can float the balloon—I played everyday and didn’t crash once. Their stress-relieving techniques are wonderful.
I used my doTERRA Essential oils for sleep (Lavender, Frankincense, Vetiver and Ylang-Ylang). Balance to maintain my equilibrium. InTune to keep me more focused because grief does a number on your brain. Cheer and Motivate to lift my mood and a number of other oils to support me. I felt like I had an entire army of little bottles taking care of me and making sure my body was functioning at it’s very best.
And, yes, even the unpacking helped—I set a goal of May 31st to be completely unpacked and I did it! Physical work and exercise helped my endorphins and allowed my not to dwell on my grief 24/7.
So, I say to you, there is always a way when the unexpected happens and you do have control to make your way through. If you can’t do it yourself, turn to someone who can help you and don’t be afraid to ask—it’s not a sign of weakness.
I’m always willing to help you relieve your stress with HeartMath® and keep you healthy with doTERRA Essential Oils. I’m only an email away to set up a conversation to guide you- just email me firstname.lastname@example.org and I’m there!
Expect the unexpected, but don’t spend your time being fearful!
