Epiphanies! I love them! Do you?

Oh my goodness! I thought it was me. It is not me. It is FB. lol

No, seriously, I thought my business was over. Sales have been down. I got scared.

I also thought I had to do business a certain way. Maybe I do. Maybe I don't. But I am tired of the game of trying to figure it all out.

So, from this day going forward, I am going to do what feels intrinsically right for me.

I create because I have to create. Not because I have to sell. If you love my Soul Candy pieces...great! If you want to join me on an essential oil journey...great! If you want to have me as your life coach...great!

Either way, I will be here doing what I love, because I have to. I want to. It is me.

Have a listen to this impromptu FB LIVE video, from today. I share from a very genuine and honest place. Plus I talk about Elizabeth Gilbert, so there is that.

Things have been changing over on FB, as they always have and always will. But I will still be doing my thing and I hope you find ways to follow along.

Please sign up for my weekly bursts of love! That way we can always stay in touch. Even if you don't open all my emails! that is okay!!! Pick and choose what works for you. I am okay with it all. 

After watching this video, tell me what spoke to you. I really do want to hear your thoughts.

Are you tired of trying to do things perfectly, or just right? Stop that. Be you in all of your glorious imperfectness. Keep doing what you love, just because you love it, without worrying about what other people think.

We are all in this together.

Much love and cheers to living life on your terms.

Essential Oils. My current OBSESSION.

Awww, I love my oils so much! 

Slightly oil obsessed. These are my most favorite essential oils.I live an oil life now. Completely. Everyday. I reach for my oils first when the slightest hint of sickness, aches or pains, emotional flair ups, if I need motivation or comfort. Truly and seriously. Because of this, I do know how much they will bless your life. I would never be sharing my love for them if I didn't truly love them. One of my most important values in life is to be authentic and so I only share from that place.  Message me with any questions you may have. This month there are some beautiful bonuses for you when you get started with your own starter kit. I would be honored to walk this oil life with you. 

So much healing can come from your desire to make a change. We all have areas of our lives that need special tending to.

How is your physical health? Emotional? Spiritual? Mental? Financial? 

Once you dive into the world of essential oils, you will find your life improving.

Tend to your tender self. Take time for you. You are worth the effort it takes to heal and progress through life in a healthy way.

Message me. Let's talk.

Two Resolutions for me in 2017!

Happy New Year Beautiful!

2017....Bring it ON!

How many years have you spent sitting down on New Year's Eve or New Year's Day and written a list of your new year goals??? 

If you are like me...every year, right?!

Well, of course I still want to lose weight, make more money, improve my relationships, go on a nice vacation, read more etc. All those goals are in check and being worked on but...

This year I am making two changes that will give me more time for all of these things (above list) to manifest into my life; I am not keeping my phone by my bed during the night and I am getting up and out of bed at the same time (earlier) everyday (with the exception of a few weekend days here and there.)

I love my phone. It keeps me connected and it keeps me entertained. It makes it so I can escape for hours at a time, if I let myself. Sometimes, that is okay, everyday and night (into the wee hours of the mornings too) is not okay.

I resolve to connect more in real life. Phone calls, emails, date nights (sans phone,) handwritten letters, and just in general, phone free.

Will I still use my phone everyday? Yes, I use it to connect with people I am building professional relationships with, I use it to life coach, I use it to decorate my social media feeds, to stay connected with my teenagers, but I know I have that phone in my hand far too often. So that stops now.

These two things are going to change my life and I am ready for all the crazy beautiful manifesting that will come from just tweaking things a bit.

How about you? Are you really ready to make 2017 different? Share with me how you are going to do it. What are you willing to do to finally achieve the life you want?

Live now! Make changes now. Start now. Life is happening now.

Sending you love,

Amy 

Forgive ~ Part of my Life & Essential Oil Journey

Hey Sweet Buttercup...

Forgiveness. It is a weighty word. You most likely have your own stories involving the need to forgive or to be forgiven. Many emotions and feelings come to the surface for me when I hear this word and what it means to me. I have had something very personal that I have needed to forgive myself for, pain that I cause loved ones in my life. It has been an emotional weight and a physical one too. Our bodies have a way of speaking our pain for us. Several months ago I was introduced to this particular oil, Forgive. I did not like it. The first time I smelt it, it repulsed me. I quickly put the lid back on the bottle and put the oil away. Even as I type this story to share with you I fear judgement. But we all know that fear is a restrictor. I have learned in my life to walk through the discomfort and be vulnerable anyway. I had a break through a little over a month ago. A very personal one. One in which I found the freedom that comes from forgiveness. I forgave myself for something I never thought I could. I felt light and free and at peace. It was quite the experience. I am so thankful for it. I have had moments when I have to remind myself that I forgave myself and in the moment of doubt, I forgive myself again. A few weeks after my profound experience I reopened the bottle of Forgive, I tried again, and you know what? I inhaled this precious oil and I loved it. I was not expecting this. I sat back and stared at my little bottle of oil and gave thanks. It may be just a little miracle in my life, but it was a beautiful reminder that I was able to let go. I am able to forgive myself and the beautiful lightness of being that comes from truly forgiving yourself or someone else is a miracle. Set yourself free. Do the work and forgive. Freedom will follow. I promise.

Let me know if you have any Qs about essential oils. I am converted. I would love to have you join me on this journey. I wonder what miracles would come to you.

Stand Up, Rise and Shine Your Light! We need YOU.

Today, over on Facebook, I share a few of my thoughts about our current estate of affairs.

I believe we well get through this time of uncertainty. Take a deep breath, feel all the feels you need to and then go and do, and give, and serve, and shine YOUR light. We are here to continue to evolve and grow and we are all at different points along life's journey. I do not know the reason for such hard times, but I do believe we are here to learn how to be better people...

How are you doing? How are you feeling? Share with me, if you will.

Sending love and healing light, your way...

Soul Candy Conversations and Gabrielle Bernstein
Part of being an entrepreneur and following my passions has already allowed for experiences I never could have imagined!
This past April I (Soul Candy) had a wonderful opportunity to accompany Gabrielle Bernstein along her Miracles Now four city book tour. While in Los Angeles I was privileged enough to be able to sit down with Gabby at the Golden Bridge Yoga studios and have a little chat. This is part one of my conversation with Gabby....and it involved Soul Candy. ;)
Part two will be along soon. Enjoy! xoxo
Soul Candy Conversations ~ Episode 1
I am so excited to introduce to you Soul Candy Conversations! It is my belief that we desire community. We long to be understood and loved. I would love to create a place where those things happen, so you feel not so alone in this big world. A place where you can come and feel inspired to start something you have been putting off for too long. A place where you can come and hear some comforting words. A place where you can come and feel connected.
I have a feeling that Soul Candy Conversations will take a few twists and turns as we find the perfect and most comfortable way to accomplish this goal. For now, it will be through video format.
Some weeks I will come into your inbox with words of encouragement and stories that I hope will help you along your life path. Some weeks I will be having conversations with some of my favorite people, all with the desire to uplift and fill your soul.
Here is the first episode! A little introduction in the the beginnings of Soul Candy.
Please sign up for my newsletter so these messages end up in your inbox. I would love to hear your thoughts and I hope you stick around as all of our Soul Candy stories unfold.
Much love to you!
Amy
