Relax: Just Do It

Today…this week…is AMAZING…ABUNDANT….AND….ABSOLUTELY FULL!

I wanted to share with you all this week about my daughter wanting to know more about our families history and all the crazy and tragic things she has been uncovering and discovering….yet I find myself totally distracted because of all I have put upon my plate!

It’s all good things….they are not bad….but it could easily become an overwhelm…..BUT instead I realized it was part of God’s amazing plan…

File Feb 21, 2 06 56 PM

So much that even as I write this realizing that the BOGO for today of AromaTouch/Marjoram is actually a perfect duo of oils to talk about in reference to my darling daughters question….so here it goes!

I had been on the phone earlier last week sharing with a friend about the history of my aunt (one of my mom’s sisters) and the circumstances surrounding her death  many many years ago…when I was around 10 or 12….I don’t fully recall at the moment…

Anyhoo….

I didn’t think much of it…..until my daughter asked me….while driving to her acting class….  “So is there anything else I should know about our family?”  I paused and asked her what did she mean?

She referenced the phone conversation…..and I realized she HAD actually been paying attention….which I didn’t care…..but I also realized I once again had ASSUMED she knew why her grandma was so passionate about her non-profit: SANCTUARY ZONE.

So I had to explain to her that my aunt, one of grandma’s sisters, had been shot and killed by her ex-husband one New Year’s Eve night many years ago and that one of my cousins had been in the home when it happened.  I had to explain that the reason why they were divorced was due to his drinking and abuse.  And that grandma’s non-profit was to honor her sister by providing a safe haven as well as many other services for women, children, families who are trying to leave, heal, and recover from abusive relationships.

It was a bit for my daughter to process.  So why did she say: is there anything else?!  Well just a few weeks before, due to other conversations and inquiring from her, my husband finally shared with her the events surrounding his own mothers death when he was a very young child.

So needless to say she was curious IF THERE WAS ANYTHING ELSE SHE SHOULD KNOW!!!

This week I’ve been involved with a campaign for health and wellness professionals of really spreading the message of Health and Hope through Facebook lives.  I’ve also been busy with sharing and educating about the BOGO deals doTERRA is promoting this week.  In addition to teaching a protocol class for daughters homeschool group….and well just keeping up with everyday life like house, hubby, cooking, lessons, clients…..you know trying to be ALL I CAN BE…..lol!

So yesterday’s BOGO was Peace and Balance…..today is AromaTouch and Marjoram.  Those of you who are not familiar with doTERRA….well 2 times a year, usually, they do a week where a person (current customers and those wanting to start up) can snag these great deals to buy one oil and get one free.  Now this is an amazing chance for current members to stock up on oils at crazy deals….and the same for newbies.

What I love about the BOGO’s is it never fails that, just like the readings of the day, they end up being exactly what we need at that moment and didn’t even realize it!

So…with yesterday’s PEACE and BALANCE…..the names truly describe what they bring and support within a person’s body and spirit.  For my darling daughter….she can find peace in knowing that, yes, her family history is kind of crazy, it has lots of sorrow, but it also has great blessings that have come from those sorrows.  That when we sit with our amazing Lord, HE WILL provide the peace we need to process events in our lives, in our past, and HE WILL help us find BALANCE with our emotions and even our schedules (aka me this week!)….

As for today’s BOGO oils…AromaTouch and Marjoram…..well these two just build on yesterday’s in that once we have our peace and balance within, we can start to relax (AromaTouch) in the body and the mind.  We can find comfort to open our heart to connect (Marjoram) with our family members, even those of past.  We can find intimacy and connection to their pain and trust that GOD will redeem it!

I can’t wait to see what tomorrow through Saturday’s BOGOs have in store because I know they will continue to enlighten me and grow me into the amazing disciple GOD has created me to be….has created EACH OF US TO BE!  I also love seeing how each of them can support my daughter, my husband, my clients….everyone!!!

Do you have things in your life that you need to surround yourself with some PEACE and BALANCE? 

Do you need to open yourself up to RELAX and CONNECT to the higher power of GOD’S AMAZING LOVE!?

Remember in ALL THINGS…HE DOES MAKE THEM GOOD!

May you all have an amazingly wonderful WEDNESDAY!

Essential drops of love and prayers always,

~Kelly

Hearts of Ashes

Happy Valentines with Ashes!

I’m going to save the story of my daughter asking, “Is there ANYTHING ELSE about our family I should know?” for next week!!! J

Instead I want to visit about how there is never a coincidence with God! J….He knows what He is doing!!!

File Feb 14, 12 18 17 PM

There may be many Catholics who are bummed that Valentines falls on Ash Wednesday….and some who may decide to say the heck with it, I’m going to celebrate Valentine’s day anyways…and by the time you read this you may have already decided that yourselfJ…

But I want us to ponder on something…

What better way to celebrate Valentines but to begin this journey of LOVE for 40 days.  In 40 days we will celebrate just HOW MUCH CHRIST LOVES US!

I thought of all sorts of things to share here today but instead I wanted us to  just pause and think about  how absolutely awesome it is that we receive this gift of an amazing love journey this Lenten season.

What way are you going to bring more love into your life this lent?

  • Give up fear?
  • Give up anger?
  • Give up resentment?

Oils to support you on this journey:

  • Fear: Juniper Berry, OnGuard, TerraShield, Wild Orange
  • Process fear out with any of these oils….opening you up to FAITH!
  • Anger: Cardamom, DDR Prime blend, InTune, Melissa
  • Process anger out with these oils….opening you up for internal stillness and calm.
  • Resentment: DigestZen blend, Lemongrass, AromaTouch blend, Peppermint, Breathe blend.
  • Process resentment out with these oils to open your heart up to understanding.

Today take a moment to reflect if any of these emotions resonate with you?  Are they something you can or should work on this lent?

Sit with this…pray….journal…oil up and tap into LOVE!

Essential drops of love and prayers always,

~Kelly 🙂

Why: Melaleuca?

I look at my beautiful little lady and I ask God:

  • Why does she have to suffer cramps the way I did?
  • Why does she have to experience emotional turmoil?
  • Why is she sensitive to so many of the same foods I am?
  • Why?

File Feb 07, 12 22 47 PM

I sit and ponder: How can I help my daughter be whole and healed.  And instead of beating myself up… I realize I AM helping her!

  • I am teaching her how to take care of herself nutritionally.
  • How to eat what helps her instead of hurts her.
  • I am teaching her to take things to God when she becomes overwhelmed with everyday life.
  • I am teaching her to support herself: emotionally and physically with essential oils.

It has me wonder if God in all His amazing wonder, glory, and wisdom, introduced Melaleuca to me sooo many years ago because He knew I would eventually see the physical and emotional connection of this oil that my daughter would need.

Melaleuca, aka tea tree oil, was our 1st oil to ever try because of a skin ailment my daughter had at the age of five.  Melaleuca boosted and supported her immune system to help her skin repair and eliminated the problem.

In hindsight I think it did more than that.  God knowing my daughters sensitive spiritual nature, knew she would need the emotional support from this oil as well.

This is the oil of “energetic boundaries”!

My daughter is super good about not allowing others to invade her energy space.  She may come across as aloof and even dismissive but I have always respected and admired this quality of hers.  It’s not that she doesn’t care about others, it’s actually that she feels so deeply that this oil supports her gut instinct to protect her boundaries.  She doesn’t get sucked into others toxic thoughts, energy, drama, unhealthy relationships and so much more!

With that I smile and marvel at God…because once again He provided the answers to questions I didn’t fully understand so many years ago.

He provided an oil that would support my daughter not only physically but emotionally.  Thus equipping her to continue the beautiful life work of helping heal the family tree, to break the bondage of sins and wounds.

Do you have a toxic relationship that needs to be purified?  Toxic relationship in your own family?

Sit….pray…..write….oil up and tap away “vampire” energy today!

Essential drops of love and prayers always,

~Kelly 🙂

***This MONTH ONLY….those who are already in my oils family are part of the special oils club who will receive this oil free with certain purchases….BUT I want you to have the same opportunity… so if you want Melaleuca for free too…connect with me!!!  Let’s get your energetic boundaries strong too!

13 Reasons Why: Hope & Deep Blue

13 REASONS WHY

Have you watched this show!?  I never felt compelled when this show came out to watch it….mostly because I have been disappointed by every Netflix original thus far.  They ALWAYS have content too explicit for my taste.  I absolutely DO NOT like watching sexual scenes. It is such an affront to how beautifully wonderfully made we are.  It objectifies us and reduces GODS beautiful gift to us to something that is deemed as entertainment by the film/tv industry.

File Jan 31, 11 15 31 AM

I will try to stay on topic….lol….

I watched this show for 2 reasons:  a friend of my daughters watched it so I thought if I watched it I would have a way to continue to connect with her and have meaningful conversation.  And I knew if anything it would be something to blog about….lol.

Oh my goodness gracious.  I had NO IDEA what I was instore for.

This show rocked my world in a very good way.  Now I am truly not advocating to watch it.  As a matter of fact I think the writers and producers got a lot of things wrong….but I think they did get some things right.

So let’s cover what was wrong first:

Besides the beyond over use of language…..especially F***, it was sexually graphic.  It made me VERY uncomfortable especially the TWO RAPE SCENES!!!

There was NEVER an option or choice of hope portrayed for these kiddos because faith was NEVER mentioned…not even to mock Christianity.

What was right…..and why it rocked my world…

This young girl becomes the target of sexual abuse (touches, pats, leers, groping, comments, and rape) all because of a terrible picture taken in the wrong “light of angling” that portrayed her as “not a good girl”. 

This show was able to eloquently show how continual layers of being treating like a sexual object impacts a person profoundly to finally feel like nothing….to feel unworthy….to feel shame….to freeze in moments when we should fight or flight…..to question our own worth.

It showed how well intended adults sometimes don’t think about their wording and put blame on the victim, which causes even more doubt and shame.

File Jan 31, 11 15 08 AM

My best suggestion to parents if they are curious about this show is watch the extra episode which is 30 minutes it explains the show and why they developed it the way they did.  I think these topics are important to address with our kiddos I just think that this show really missed out on the Christian element!

Now… this is why I loved and hated this show….and why it rocked my world She was me!  And if it weren’t for my faith….I may have felt the same hopelessness she felt.

By the time I was this girls age I had already endured so many pats, leers, and more that I was numb to it all.  After all the 70’s and 80’s were all about sexual expression, freedom, revolution right!?  So it was believed a girl should feel flattered that men and boys “noticing” her right?!

This show not only provide great research for me but it also provided continual healing.  But I am an adult.  My concern for some young girls who watch this show is it could re-traumatize them or even scandalize them.  But that is just my opinion. And that is for their parents to hopefully get involved and decide if it is something they should watch, watch with them, and discuss especially if their teen has already watched it.

HOPE and DEEP BLUE

It seems like I use the HOPE oil a lot….lol…..but I really love how it can truly lift a person out of feelings of overwhelm, loss, and so much more.  I paired it with DEEP BLUE during this time to soothe the wounds (the flash backs) it was provoking.  I was very grateful to have the support of these 2 oils….and many others!

Hurt turns to Hope

The frozen, numb, zombie look on her face stopped me cold with my meal prep.

File Jan 24, 11 31 33 AM

I looked at my darling daughter and I asked her what was wrong.  She looked at me and said, “I didn’t know”.  I asked her what she meant.  “I didn’t know that’s what an abortion was.”  Now I felt sucker punched.

Ugh….you see I just assumed (huge mistake here) since we have always participated in Pro-Life marches, events, presentations, etc…..and I talk openly about the topic that my 14 year old knew and understood what it was all about.

I asked her what she thought an abortion was.  She stated she knew it was taking of a life but she had never really processed or thought about how it was taken or that it was painful (for both involved: the child and the mother).

 

How this even all came about was we were visiting about  my excitement for our family to have the opportunity to participate in the Rally for Life this Saturday in Austin.  And then to hear Abby Johnson speak on Feb 1 about her conversion story.  She once upon a time had worked for Planned Parenthood.  Her testimony is about having had to assist and watch on the sonogram an abortion procedure.  This is what forever changed her world.   What I had read on Abby’s website opened my daughter’s eyes to the reality of it.

File Jan 24, 11 53 53 AM

This broke my heart because I realized it was another layer of innocence she no longer has, yet I am also glad it was me who she had the moment with, so she could process it out.

It has given us some amazing conversations and profound moments.  She sees how ugly it is but is still too young to truly grasp that these beautiful women are just as much a victim as their child that was taken from their womb.  They are victims of the lies the enemy whispered in their ears, their heads, their hearts…convincing them this was their only choice.

File Jan 24, 11 48 04 AM

We have had the chance to really discuss the different types of lies the enemy may say to these precious women of God to convince them to take a life.  It has been tough but it has also been good, because I can see in my daughters eyes how deeply disturbed she is about it, yet also how very concerned and compassionate she feels toward the women.  And that is important.  Too many times we get caught up in the fight to save a life that we forget to love these women who are hurting too!

Highlight Oils: CONSOLE AND HOPE

 I chose console and hope to support my daughter through this.

Console: Comforts and eases burdens; guides a person toward rest within our emotions.

*My daughter really needed to be unburdened by this traumatic awareness of what an abortion is.

Hope: Even though Console also has Ylang Ylang and Frankincense, as well, Hope has Bergamot.

*My daughter really needed to feel the optimism of this oil.  She feels so deeply for others.  Hope oil helps her feel connected to God in knowing that HE DOES REDEEM ALL!!!

That was my week of reality…what about you!?

Sit…pray….journal….tap….and oil up!

Essential Disciple

I’m back!!!

And Oh my goodness gracious God has given me some focus and vision with this blog that I am super excited to share with you all…..so forgive me if this one ends up being a bit longer than usual…lol…

File Jan 17, 3 01 51 PM

It’s so interesting to me all the different ways this simple blog has changed, grown, developed and rippled.  How the theme, the direction, and content has changed over the years.  But one thing remains: It is a personal account of my life journey.  God definitely purposed me so many years ago to start this blog to create hope, to spread good ripples.

Whether it was sharing about my losses, my challenges, my health, my joys, simple topics, or complex topics….it has always been what is currently going on in my life, how it is effecting me and my family and how I can maybe help someone who is wrestling with similar experiences.

With all that being said…..I have always shared with you all what I am thinking…even when it comes to changes with this blog….and why.  It’s funny because I know some bloggers are about content and information; they don’t share the process of their changes, their format, etc….they just do it!  But since I am here about my journey and building relationship with you well I’m going to share what’s going on in my thoughts even about this blog…lol.

File Jan 17, 3 02 18 PM

I am feeling very called to have several sections so to speak… to bridge and connect what’s going on in my life…to scripture, essential oils, etc.  I am wanting to be an intentional disciple for and with you on this amazing life journey.

Because this is the thing…for every personal account I share…

There IS a scripture I find that draws me closer to God.  There IS an essential oil or two or three or more…..that support me and my family.  And for every situation I see more and more more how our physical and emotional and spiritual health are connected.

I am hoping that by my continual sharing of my personal life here with you and connecting it to God’s word and God’s gift of essential oils (as well as other sources and modalities) that you too will desire to be an intentional disciple in your faith walk, your WHOLE life, YOUR WHOLE HEALTH: mind, body, soul, spirit!

Finally, hold on for a ride because the things I have been journaling about, healing about, and life experiences of recent has me really going deep.  Which means I am going to be taking you all on an amazing journey if you’ll join me for 2018!

Let’s just say….TOB (Theology of the Body), our beautiful sexuality, sexual healing, what’s been going on in the media and many tough topics are going to be addressed here.  I am super excited to share!

So hold on tight cause the conversation I just recently had with my darling daughter was deep, sad, and truly amazing.

Today reflect on what do you need healing from?  What are you wanting to really dig deep into for 2018?

Sit…pray….journal….tap….and oil up!
