Reality–Illusion

Our lives are what we have created-reality.  “They” have done this to me-illusion.

We have the power of  thought.   We have the power of action.  We have the power of choice.   What will you choose to think upon and act upon today?

This I know-in war everybody loses.  In peace we can prosper. In acceptance and love we flourish.

Choose carefully, think deeply, “For as he thinketh in his heart, so is he”  [Ancient Proverb], and act with kindness.

I am using the oils of Stress Away, Forgiveness, and Hope.



Great Men

I am studying about a man I have heard about most of my life but I didn’t really understand his place in history.  This man was deeply hated by the great king and queen of his time.  He was the only man who stood up, spoke up, and acted on his beliefs/faith.  This man was alone and yet he accomplished all that was asked of him to do.  This man is the great prophet Elijah.  His story is in the book about the historical events of Israel/Judah during the reign of Ahab & Jezebel; IKings 17 to IIKings 2:1-15 or you can buy the study book like I did and get an even deeper perspective of this ancient prophet.

You won’t find this man on any list of “The World’s Greatest Men” but as I study his life and actions I realize that this is the kind of person I want to be.

The Young Living essential oils remind me of the power we have in us from our creator.  The power to be a force for good with and for our creator. We have so many wonderful tools at our fingertips that help us engage this power.  Magnify Your Purpose, Believe, Highest Potential, Live With Passion, and Light Your Fire are a few examples of essential oils that keep me on the path to excellence.

How do you keep your ‘Love for Life’ flame burning?



The Meet and Greet Party Called Life

Stepping into a new experience, recreating your life, going into new realms where you have never gone before is exhilarating, scary, fun, nerve racking, eye opening, exhausting, and essential.

These emotions are real.  Emotions flood our brains much faster than our conscious thoughts and can run/ruin our lives. There is hope because we can harness their power to drive us where we want to go.  Here are some techniques I use to harness that emotional power and put it to work for me. (Imagine what it is like to turn anger into action for good in your life.  To switch that impatient habit into conscious use of time.) I believe in changing the things you can and letting go of those things you have no power to change.

  1. I use EFT or tapping  to rewire my sub-conscious brain.
  2. The Young Living oils I use for balance are Valor, Joy, Harmony and the protection oil of  White Angelica.
  3.  I affirm I am safe.  It is only change.

As I step into many new experiences these techniques and my oils with prayer/meditation keep my vision clear (Clarity  oil), my resolve constant (Valor oil), and my smile bright (Joy oil).

Share with us how you meet and greet the exhilarating, scary, fun, nerve racking, eye opening, exhausting, and essential changes in your life.



Who Knew…..

You step into a new adventure and you think some things will be OK and others  will take some getting use to, but who knew…

Who knew that after 8 years of restricted access the transition to full access would be so easy?

Who knew that when you start a new part of your life’s journey the old part of the journey becomes almost surreal?

Who knew that the power of suggestion is so strong that living the reality you imagined for so many years is very comfortable?

I’ll share with you some people who know:

Newlyweds that didn’t shack up first.  Married life is such a different mind set from single life.

New parents.  That little bundle is all consuming.

People who have experienced a major life change through no choice of their own.  Sometimes the change is mostly good and sometimes it brings you to your knees.

Life is only about change.  The oils I use to keep balanced are Valor, Joy, and Harmony.  I embrace all of life’s experiences affirming I am safe, it is only change.

 

 



A Time to Review

It’s easy to say we know good things are coming, we know this too shall pass, we know…. it is another thing to live it.

Imagine that it’s 8 o’clock in the morning, there is a sight drizzle, you are  looking for an address on foot, and getting more discouraged by the second. You know that giving up is not an option. You walk back to your vehicle and get out your notebook. What do you discover? You had the address wrong. You drive to find the address and then to find a parking space only to discover you’re parking in the original place you were in at 8 o’clock in the morning.  Where you went and where you wanted to go  were only two blocks apart.

This is when the script says; starts to laugh hysterically and people passing by give her a wide berth.

I have used a lot of my Believe oil today. And yes good things are just around the corner.



Allow Them to Find Their Wings

A metaphor  to see how we can allow others to find their wings. I believe that we can apply these lessons to all relationships.

The Bald Eagle

A bald eagle egg is slightly smaller than a domestic goose egg. The chick will measure 4 to 5 inches at hatching and weigh only a matter of ounces.

Sometimes the adults will force the eaglets to fly. When chicks leave the nest they usually glide to a nearby tree or stump, returning to the nest tree frequently and continuing to be fed by the adults.  Eaglets will stay close to the nest and nest tree during the first few weeks after fledging. Within one month after fledging, eaglets will soar and drift over the water.

Chicks Leaving the Nest

As the chicks develop their flight skills they harass the adults and try to take fish from them. This behavior helps eaglets learn to forage and be independent and will last into September. At 17 to 23 weeks of age, the bond between the adults and their young fades and the adults no longer tolerate harassment from their offspring. This is time when the young eagles leave the territory, following the prevailing winds to more northerly shorelines and water bodies in search of good feeding grounds.

Youth to Adult-Mortality rate is 50%

The young eagle will spend the next 4 years of its life wandering across eastern North America looking for summering and wintering areas where food is accessible.  When it begins to mature at age 4, an eagle seeks a mate and establishes a territory. The territory is usually located within 250 miles of the nest where the eagle was hatched.  (Taken from the Fish & Wildlife.gov site)

When setting boundaries the oil of Clarity helps us see what to do.  We then  stand back and allow the wings to develop. Our Believe oil is a good support for this step.  When they soar the beautiful oil of Joy sweetens the  journey.



This Is Quite the Journey

The day was incredible.  I watched him face each challenge with calm assurance and it was humbling. I observed him interacting with the customer service reps with respect and dignity. The greatest miracle of the day was when he was told to, “..walk over to that truck and say Hi to your brother.”  I’ll never forget that moment.  It only took 27 years for this man to realize how much he is loved and how great he is. I am in awe of this man, my son.

The oils of the day were Valor, Joy, and Harmony.  These oils kept me grounded and didn’t overwhelm him.



Keeping Focus When We Are Wanting to Go Into Chaos

Darren Daily is always demanding us to keep on keeping on.  It is a game changer for the DD community. The message on September 13th was about the changing times in business, in relationships, and in life in general.  He suggested action steps and gave us works sheets. (That’s what makes it easy to implement his ideas. That and the fact the DD team is doing all this stuff too.)

Sign up and see if you are ready for what it takes to play in the biggest game of all-Life.

My essential oil that keeps me going today it is BELIEVE.



Amazing Accomplishment

The Space Shuttle Endeavor was our exploration journey recently.  Some of the engineers who worked on these various space projects are friends. When you see what can be accomplished with cooperation it is inspiring.

What does life hold for us as we cooperate with our neighbors to create all of our dreams? Synergy is the key.  “The interaction or cooperation of two or more organizations, substances, or other agents to produce a combined effect greater than the sum of their separate effects”.
synonyms: cooperative interaction, cooperation, combined effort, give and take

As I watched the videos, read the facts, enjoyed the iMax Space movie I was glad to live in this era of infinite possibilities.

To become the change we want in the world we need to be vulnerable and engage our neighbor.

The essential oils that support me as I reach out are: Valor, Believe, and Gratitude.

Who in your circle will join you on this path?



The Wonder of Trust

I like the story of Jehoshaphat, an ancient king, who had dreadfully powerful enemies  coming after his people. He was afraid. He was a man who feared God.  His fear of God was greater than his fear of his enemy.When God’s prophet told him, ‘You will not need to fight in this battle” Jehoshaphat believed him and did everything he was asked to do.

The enemy was conquered and Jehoshaphat’s people were saved.       2Chronicles 19:15-27.

It is a wonderful thing when we find that power that we can trust.  That power we can rely on to be our guide and comforter.  Where will you find that power?

My oils will be Valor to stand firm, Believe to be steadfast and Joy and Gratitude to sing praises night and day.
