Simplify one Toss at a Time

You have decided you want to clean up a few things, toss a few things, and continue the process until you know you have simplified your life in a major way.


What oils (click & explore) will assist me?

Releaseto let go again and again and again.

Put a drop on your hands, rub together, inhale, and rub over face. Start the journey.

En-R-Gee-to keep on track.

Carry the bottle with you and smell periodically to keep the momentum going.






Knowing Your Life

You have created a life that you 1)love,  2)tolerate  or  3)hate. Good news you can change that.

Grab your oils to assist you on your journey.

Valor for courage to choose to do one thing differently.

Put on the inside of the wrist, rub together, raise overhead & set your intent.

Joy-to keep you on the journey of change.

Put over your heart with the intent to rejoice in the life of your dreams.

Harmony-to keep balance with those who grow with you.

Put on your solar plexus area.

Enjoy your journey



As you think so you will manifest.  The oil of Believe has kept me on my path.  I also use Clarity, Live Your Passion,  and Highest Potential to support me on my journey. Our beliefs are proven by the lives we live and not by the words that we speak on  “what we believe”.

As you look at your life what one thought do you want to think that you have never “believed”?   ‘I am ……..’    Throughout today consciously think on this thought and notice the change within you.

Enjoy your new journey. Share with us what you notice.

Home Stretch

For those who celebrate this time of year with friends, family, and cheer many of you will be in the home stretch.  Some breathing thoughts I use:  KINDNESS always works to defuse, de-escalate, and de-bother.  WAIT What is the results you want? What results will you get by this action?  YOU can be right or you can be HAPPY.

My oils Joy, Christmas Spirit,(it has orange, cinnamon, and lemon in it and reminds me of the smells of the holidays) Believe, (that others are doing the best that they can) and Idaho Blue Spruce, (the smell of the forest).

What choices are you making to create the day that you want?

Warning Labels We can Really Use:

Google: “Warning! You may find more than what you’re looking for.”

Apple computers: “Warning! High Smug Advisory.”

Wikipedia: “Warning label does ?not exist. Would you like to create warning label?” “Contents may just be settling.”    From

And The Breath Restores…..

It is easy to get caught up in the “lists of what I Must do” and to forget to focus on three of our basic needs; breath, water, and love.  Stop..inhale deeply through your nose and say Thank You.  Take a long drink of water and honor your bodies needs.  Look into the mirror and really see you and say, “I appreciate you”.   Do this at least 3x a day and build up to 5x and see what happens in your life.  It is magical when we recenter ourselves to be authentic.

Our wonderful balancing oils of Valor, Joy, and Harmony automatically keep us on an even keel.  Stress Away, Tranquil, Christmas Spirit, and Sacred Mountain are some others that I use for redirecting my soul energy.

How are you keeping things in focus for you?

What Is Love

Dallas, Age 7

Love is when your mom makes a cup of coffee for your dad and she takes a sip of it before she gives it to him, to make sure it is okay.

Sue, Age 6

If you want to learn how to love better, you should start with someone you hate.

Donna, Age 6

My mommy loves me more than any one else. You don’t see anybody else kissing me good night when I go to bed.

Sandi, Age 8

When my grandma got arthritis, she couldn’t bend over to paint her toenails anymore. So my granddad does it for her, even after he got arthritis, too. That’s love.

Jake, Age 6

Love is when a little old man and a little old woman are still friends, even after they know each other so well.

Children tell us what they think love is.

Dennis, Age 5

Love is when a girl puts on perfume and a boy puts on after shave and then they go out together and smell each other.

Georgia, Age 7

Love is when you tell a boy you like his shirt and then he wears it everyday.

Annie, Age 5

Love is when mommy gives daddy the best piece of chicken.

Jackie, Age 4

Love is when your puppy licks your face even when you left him alone all day.

Joe, Age 7

Love is when daddy comes in all sweaty and smelly and mommy still tells him that he is handsomer than Robert Redford.

Jenny, Age 8

When I had my piano recital, I was on the stage and I was scared. I looked out at all the people looking at me. Then I saw my daddy waving and smiling. He was the only one doing that and I wasn’t sacred anymore.

Bruce, Age 8

Love is when you go out to dinner with someone and you give them most of your French fries without making them give you any of theirs.

Vanessa, Age 8

Children tell us what they think love is.

You really shouldn’t tell somebody that you love them unless you mean it. But if you do mean it, you should tell them a lot. People forget.

Marissa, Age 4

Love is when your older sister gives you all her old clothes because, then she has to go out and buy new ones.

Amy, Age 8

Love is when you kiss all the time. Then after you are tired of kissing, you still want to be with each other and you talk more. My daddy and mommy are like that. When they kiss, they look gross.

Andrea, Age 7

You know you love someone because your eyelashes go up and down and little stars come out of you.

Best for Last

Leo Buscaglia, author and lecturer, once judged a contest where they wanted to find the most caring child. He told this story:

A four year old lived next door to an elderly man who had recently lost his wife. One day, the boy saw his neighbor crying. He went over, climbed into the neighbor’s lap and just sat there. When he came home, his mother asked him what he had said to the man.

“Nothing,” he said. “I just helped him cry.”

What A Gift

Small miracles create a large smile.  Traffic that flows, customers that are polite, finding all your stuff where it should be as you prepare to leave for work, time with your beloved child, and a comfy place to lay your head at the end of a busy day.

We have a new president in the USA.   If your candidate did/didn’t win vote for a better you.  You can take those steps you know you want to take to build a better you.

Do you want to be more productive, more tuned into your family’s needs, take better care of yourself, or just show more kindness?

My daily oils include Valor, Joy, Harmony, and White Angelica. As I continue my life changes/growth spurts  Believe, Live With Passion, and Frankincense will be added to my ‘Just Do It’ kit.


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.

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.
