I Am Thankful for Essential Oils

I am thankful for following my intuition. When I first signed up with doTerra, I thought, this will be fun, maybe I will learn a few things.

I am not totally sure how to explain how much I am falling in love with my oils! I look for ways to use them every single day. I carry them with me everyday. I read about them everyday. I love them everyday.

Educating myself on the topic of holistic healing is opening a new chapter in my life and I could not be more thankful. I am loving what I am learning. I am making oils a priority in my life.

I just received this new book and this sums up what I am feeling...

"Nature works holistically...and so do we. When nature touches one area of your life, you can feel it in many other areas. Essential oils demonstrate this in a big way. I believe that aromatherapy is a gateway into a broader understanding of traditional healing, and a path toward heathy living." ~ Andrea Butje, The Heart of Aromatherapy

Getting back to more natural ways of healing and taking care of our beautiful bodies is so appealing to me. I am loving this process and way of life.

If you have any questions or would like some information, message me. I'd love to have you on this journey with me. ūüíõ

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.

I am looking forward to exploring all sorts of topics that will help us heal.

Thank you for being here. YOU are not alone.

Emerge ~ Faith Crisis Survivor

Dear Ones, 

I posted this on my social media sites yesterday and I have been blow away by the sweet messages and words of encouragement. A few of you have messaged me privately about your own journey and or doubts. 

I want you to know that you are not alone....

Because it is hard and you may need to reach out privately. This is for you.....

I have been distracted. I have looked away from something that has been calling to me for years. It is time to listen to my intuition, to emerge, so to speak.

Several years ago, 10 to be exact, I experienced a deep, painful, life changing faith crisis. I was raised Mormon and lived a great life as a Mormon. I was on the perfect path. I checked all the Mormon life journey boxes and I was well on my way to the celestial kingdom.

But around 2002/3 I had a nagging, something inside me started to question everything I had been taught. I started to get scared. I pushed those feelings down for years until about 2006. One day, I gave myself permission to follow my intuition and explore my doubts. I started studying. I read and read and cried and cried as I learned what I had been taught all my life was not quite what I thought it was. I remember wanting to die. I wanted the earth to swallow me up. I started to see that my life was going to change drastically.

How could I go on when EVERYONE around me was a member of the church, my husband, mom, siblings, all my friends. I felt alone and I was in huge despair.

For a few years I kept most of my new discoveries inside & quiet. When I tried to talk about my feelings and questions and new discoveries I was given answers like...pray harder, read your scriptures, have more faith it will all work itself out in the next life. I was told I was being deceived by satan. 

I prayed harder. I pleaded with god to let me go back to my old ways of thinking, it would be easier. I couldn't do that. I was having an awakening and there was no going back.

I have lived through it. And now I am here to help others navigate those scary painful days, no matter the faith or religion. You will survive this pain. You will emerge stronger for walking this path of uncertainty.

My Soul Candy stones came from a place of my own personal healing. They are precious to me. I will still be creating my stones and selling them, just no more "sales." (or very few) Just know they come from a deep place of healing. I hope they serve you as healing reminders. You know where to find them and me. Time to emerge and help others navigate this scary path. 

I feel so much clarity about my mission in life, at this time. It is my desire to gather those of us who have felt this pain and share our stories and share our life after a faith crisis triumph. 

You are loved and you are not alone,

Amy xo

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...

Amy xoxo
