My heart is breaking.
I had so many things I wanted to share with all of you this Monday. But I will save them for another day :). Because there WILL be another day…lol.
Yesterday our parish priest shared how our Bishop is moving him to a different parish because he is needed there. My heart breaks because we just got here. I have truly fall in love with this priest in such a short four month period. When he broke the news yesterday, my eyes welled….and I could barely speak about it during the day. It created such a deep loss within me. I went to Console and Bergamot to support me.
It had me pondering WHY!? Why did I feel such loss? And then it hit me….I HAD FULLY, VULNERABLY, WILLINGLY, FINALLY LET SOMEONE INTO MY LIFE WITH NO GUARD, NO HESITATION!!!
The realization that it hurt so deep was because I truly loved this man and all he has to give to his church, his congregation, with no reservation. My wounds of past vulnerabilities had truly been healed. And that gave me great joy.
Then I had to remind myself to have that Godly detachment. And again…I had accomplished that as well. I was able to recognize that we cannot cling to things and people, only God is our true rock…..YET we are to love others with our WHOLE heart, mind, soul….this is not always easy…..right!? Especially when we are wounded!
YET….I did it! And that gave me amazing joy and peace!
So when you find yourself clinging to someone or something, reflect on why? Give it to God. And when you find yourself feeling great loss, give yourself the grace to to heal and move forward yet remember we must only cling to God!
As always….sit…pray…oil up…and tap through your day!!
Drops of blessings and hugs dear ones!
PS…..Last week was abundantly full with my darling daughters theater schedule and this week will be as well due to it being production week, so there will more than likely be only one posting this week, but who knows…lol. I am also going to stop trying to figure out the right “formula” of when and what to write for you all because that’s not being true to me, thus not true to you all! But more about that soon ;)……Til then….
Have an amazingly blessed week!
One final note…..I would love to have you start up and join my team of warrior women changing their lives, their families lives, and the lives around them with the support of Essential Oils. If this is something you are open to and it resonates with you please Facebook Message me or use my contact info in the “Services & Appointments” tab. I would be honored to work with you, support you, and connect with you!
I’ve been tapping with Essential Oils for about 6 months now!
I probably have been doing this even longer than I realize. You too have been in away probably been tapping without even realizing! How often do you hold your temples when you feel pressure in your head? Press your fingers to your upper lip? put your hand on your collar bone? Do you ever feel yourself pressing those places and feeling relief or trying to find relief?
There are many ways to practice and experience EFT (tapping for short). There is a sequence but there is also short cuts when in the moment and not having the time for a full sequence. Furthermore, tapping doesn’t have to be just about a negative emotion needing to be released. It can also be about appreciation and thankfulness. It can be part of prayer.
To learn more about EFT and the science behind it check out the Tapping Solutions site. It’s a very informative site. And full of great info, especially for beginners.
There can be so many sources out there that practice and teach others about EFT. For me making sure I have a Christian perspective was very important. When we start dealing with energy work and healing it is important that the person I am learning from and getting info from is Christ centered.
How does Essential Oils fit into this picture!?
Essential oils are supportive with physical issues and very effective for emotional problems as well. Essential Oils are energy….we are energy! There is plenty of evidence and backing to help us understand that Essential Oils do provide emotional release and support in healing.
So if Essential Oils can help us release emotions locked up inside of us and tapping releases emotions locked up inside of us via the meridian points…..then why wouldn’t we combine the two together!
Here is a basic understanding about how to combine the two together.
Once you have acknowledged the emotion you are struggling with rate your discontent, your angst with this emotion. Pick the oil that is going to address that emotion. You can diffuse that oil while you tap or put the oil on the tapping points or at the very least on your finger tips that you will be tapping with.
Now you are going to focus on what this emotion is. This doesn’t mean you stew on it, it means you are going to bring it to the conscience, acknowledge that it is there rather than stuffing it down.
Then you do your set up statement. It can be as simple as, “Even though I feel (fill in blank), I completely and totally love and accept myself.” This is said 3 times while tapping on the karate chop point. Now you are ready to start doing the sequence through all the points (The Tapping Solution has a fabulous 2 minute video about the points). By the time you have done 5 rounds you need to assess if your emotion has decreased, if you feel energy having opened up and flowing better. Some signs that things are shifting is if you find yourself yawning a lot, if you actually feel emotions welling up and crying, your body starts to relax, and so many other ways. Tapping is a chance for you to really check in with yourself and start noticing all these little ways your body tries to talk to you!
Don’t have any emotions to clear out? Or don’t think you do?! Then just began each day with: Thank you, thank you, thank you Lord for another beautiful day! Thank you for creating me to be wonderfully beautifully made!
What are your thoughts about EFT? Do you think it is something you would be open to for your healing and thriving!? Sit with this….pray about this….tap about it :)….journal about it….share your thoughts with me!
Many blessings and hugs dear beloved ones!
This week has been nothing I had planned or anticipated. I had so many ideas and thoughts for what I wanted to do….and even what I wanted to write and share here.
Yet none of it went as I planned.
AND THAT IS OKAY.
Because I am NOT in charge….GOD IS!
And the beautiful thing is: THANK GOD, HE IS IN CHARGE!
When you feel like things aren’t going the way you wanted them to, what do you do? Do you throw up your hands and say: I GIVE! Or do you dig in your heals and say: I’M GOING TO DO THIS NO MATTER WHAT!
Hopefully it’s a little bit of both. This is why: when we connect to understanding, it is HIS WILL, we should be living in, we can see more quickly the moments we need to say, “Ok Lord I give, I give my will to your will”…..and we can also see when He needs us to dig in, have some grit and not give up!
And that is what the top 10 oils can support you with! I know that may sound silly since I just spent 2 weeks talking about the top 10 oils relating to self-care and self-love. But I can’t help but see how they are helpful in almost everything anymore.
- Lavender – When we need to relax about things not going our way.
- Lemon – When we need to quit toxic thinking and give it to God.
- Peppermint- When we need to have that energy to just DO IT!
- Melalueca- When we need to quit allowing others to fill us with toxic thoughts.
- Frankincence- When we need that extra push to release our will and TRUST His Will Be Done!
- Oregano – Not today Satan!
- DigestZen- When we feel that fight or flight moment that builds up and we just don’t know what to do!
- Breathe- When we need to realize the breath of God is more powerful than our own.
- Deep Blue – When the struggle of wrestling leaves you feeling black and blue.
- On-Guard – When you just need to protect yourself from all outside invaders to focus on only God’s voice.
As you prepare for the weekend….stop and think…..if my day doesn’t go according to MY PLANS….do I need to reflect and think on WHAT IS HIS PLAN for me!?
Sit with this…..pray about this…..journal about it……connect with me and share below about it!
Many hugs and blessings my dear followers…family…friends…..
Fight or flight!?
It may seem like sweeping something under the rug or “moving on” is more important than going through the difficult task of feeling the pain of unearthing wounds of an sort of trauma or forgiveness.
This is the WORST form of non-self-love….a lack of love….dare I say SELF-HATE!
When we face our emotions, our pain….embrace it….we are able to open up ourselves to amazing healing….and that is TRUE SELF LOVE!
I LOVE LOVE LOVE grabbing my DEEP BLUE when I am feeling any sort of physical pain because I KNOW it is going to support me to face and embrace the emotions that are underlying.
Are you avoiding emotions? Do you ever feel on the brink of hysteria? How can you embrace your pain to find fullness in your self love!?
Sit with this…pray about it…journal about it….share and connect with me below about this!!!
Many hugs dear followers…family…friends…
When we don’t love ourselves we are not seeing the TRUTH! We are believing lies that we are not protected….abandoned…disconnected from our Father.
This is why I LOVE Frank! Because Frankincense reconnects us to the truth! The truth of how beautifully wonderfully made we are!
Sometimes our lack of love is so deep it has seeped into our cellular structure….our immune system. We are willing to believe the lie of darkness.
The support of Frank provides:
Your inner light can connect you to the TRUTH. The truth that your HEAVENLY FATHER LOVES YOU…..AND HE ONLY MAKES THINGS GOOD!
How can you connect to your inner light!? Connect to the truth!? Sit with this …pray about this…write about this….share and connect with me below!
Many blessings and hugs dear followers…friends….family….
During the last post (Planting Seeds) I shared about planting seeds with my daughter. I watch my darling daughter and see how amazing she is. Here is a young lady who KNOWS she is wonderfully made. She has NO DOUBT that God created her with ah and wonder. She has NO DOUBT that all women should see how beautiful they are.
Do you want to have the same self-love, self confidence. to confidently walk with the knowledge that God has wonderfully made you!?!?
Join me over the next 10 days as I share with you about the top 10 essential oils found in the 2 most popular Essential Oils start up kits through doTerra.

“dōTERRA Hope Touch is a distinct essential oil blend combining the fresh scent of Bergamot with Ylang Ylang and Frankincense, then sweetened slightly with the warming aroma of Vanilla Bean Absolute. It’s inviting scent is only one thing that makes dōTERRA Hope Touch truly unique. The full purchase price of each dōTERRA Hope Touch bottle is donated to the dōTERRA Healing Hands Foundation™ which supports O.U.R. Rescue. O.U.R. Rescue is an organization that consists of the world’s experts in extraction operations and anti-child trafficking efforts. They have come together to bring an end to child slavery and sex trafficking. With each application of dōTERRA Hope Touch, breathe in its uplifting scent while knowing your purchase is part of a bigger cause—to help rescue precious children throughout the world.” ~Quote straight from doTERRA.com
I pulled the full quote because I know we can all get busy and not click on the links within blogs or articles. I get it trust me…..I skim my fair share of blogs and books.
This is TOO important to skim.
- 100% of the oil purchase goes to the Healing Hands Foundation.
- O.U.R. Rescue is fighting for these women and children.
- The oils that are in the blend.
I want to share with you about the oils that are in this blend…
Bergamot~ The Oil of Self-Acceptance…..relieves despair and feeling hopeless. This oil provides support of hope and feeling good enough.
Ylang Ylang ~The Oil of the Inner Child…..releases emotional trauma. This oil connects you to your inner child to feel free.
Frankincense Oil~the Oil of Truth…creates protection when feeling abandoned. This oil reminds us we are loved.
I only highlighted the key emotions to each oil that I thought pertained to the cause at hand. Think about it: Self-Acceptance, Inner Child, Truth.
These women and children are robbed of their childhood, of their innocence. They are surrounded by an evil that creates despair and hopelessness. And once they are rescued, if they are able to be rescued, they will struggle with feeling abandoned and unloved….heck they already feel that. These feeling will be compounded more than likely with a severely severed connection to our Heavenly Father.
THESE WOMEN AND CHILDREN NEED HOPE!!!
I remember when I first heard, read, and watched about the Hope oil.….it brought tears to my eyes. It still does. I feel so humbled and so proud to be part of a company that cares so much about the care and dignity of truly the lost and forgotten. But doTERRA, as well as many other organizations, have NOT forgotten these women and children. They are fighting for them each and every day.
What inspires you so much to help bring HOPE to others?! Sit with this….pray about this….write about this…..and share below about it!!!
Many Blessings and Hugs dear followers, family, friends……
Lavender is the oil of communication…..
Lavender has not been my friend recently…
I actually didn’t realize it was lavender that was causing me to have headaches…and not feeling so swell.
But during a self-care support gathering I facilitated on Saturday we discussed the emotional components of Lavender…..
It still didn’t really make much of a difference to me at that point….but since it was fresh in my mind….when I went to use Clary-Calm on Sunday….I instantly experienced tightness in my temples……which had me thinking….
I started to track back over the last week every time I had that type of headache….and sure enough it was when I would be getting ready to go to sleep….and when I would reach for Clary-Calm….
So what was going on!?
I pulled out my trusty EMOTIONS AND ESSENTIAL OILS book and started to re-read to see if anything resonated within me….
Sure enough I was experiencing the negative emotions….meaning emotions that haven’t cleared or needed to be cleared from my body….my spirit….
You see essential oils are supportive when you are needing to feel strength in a particular emotion….or needing to connect or heal…..in a particular area….emotion….
BUT…..if that emotion is so strong….it can get locked in your body….your spirit…..and that oil when used is like a thorn…so it’s not a sign to NOT use that oil….INSTEAD it’s an indication to have you stand up and take notice….
Notice your spirit is trying to tell you something through your body…..
So why was I feeling the negative response!?
I need to be more emotionally honest with my extended family. I need to give voice to how words are my love language and they need to respect that…..I need to make sure my spirit is heard so my body can heal!
When we speak up with our physical voice we nurture our spiritual voice and this brings us to an awareness and a connection to God’s amazing love and grace.
So the question for you my dear readers….
What are you holding back!? What have you been afraid to speak up about?! What rejection are you fearing!? How can YOU FIND YOUR VOICE!?
Take a moment to sit with this….pray about it…write about it….and then use your voice! Live in HIS WILL!
Many blessings and hugs always dear readers….family….friends….
