the Abundance Blend
First, a reminder of what constitutes this treasure: Orange, Cinnamon, Ginger, Clove, Frankincense, Myrrh, Black Spruce, and Patchouli.
As many begin to swing into a mode of holiday frenzy, forces will begin to pull us down: busyness, finances, family drama...
But as in all circumstances, we have a choice.
Ready to level up your lifestyle?
A choice. Yes, just that simple. You have the ability to accept, or reject the noise around you.
A choice. Instead of telling ourselves these "things," what if we elevated the conversation? (The most important conversation...the one we have with ourselves.)
What if you infused your lifestyle with ABUNDANCE, PEACE, CALM, and GRATITUDE?
A lifestyle that includes ABUNDANCE is truly a level above the rest. ABUNDANCE in all things, by the way, is absolutely the standard we all were designed for. Our Creator is a lavish and abundant God, goodness, why would He want less for His creation? And so we ask ourselves, "what choice will I be choosing today?"
ABUNDANCE, that's my choice. How about you, dear friend?
So, we have ABUNDANCE essential oil blend as a gift from Young Living this month. What do we do with this gorgeous treasure? I'm giddy with excitement to tell you!
Did you know that oranges have symbolized abundance for centuries? (Think back on all the great master works featuring oranges, Gauguin, Cezanne, and of course, Van Gogh...) Of course, there was no greater gift than the holy oils of Frankincense and Myrrh. Abundance is a manifesting blend which helps attracts wealth and health in our lives. How, you ask? The frequency of the oil is the same as the brain. Somatides transmit frequencies from the cells to outside of the body. This happens when you smell Abundance essential oil and express thoughts of prosperity. Many call this the Law of Attraction. It's a law like the others, gravity, entropy, motion, and my favorite, sowing and reaping. It's simply a law that is, whether you acknowledge it or not.
I know you’re running to grab the bottle now, but before opening this precious gift, I want you to reflect on your standards for your lifestyle surrounding abundance, remembering that STANDARDS get met.
What are your standards?
What are your absolutes about abundance?
Jot that down so you can see it with fresh eyes.
With your answer in sharp focus, put a drop in your palm and breathe deeply. Diffuse it. Put a drop on your heart. And let in the flow worthy of your life. Let the lifestyle you deserve flow like water...
BREATHE. ELEVATE. LEVEL UP your lifestyle.
You will find that those around you will rise up to your standards and enjoy the blessing of this ABUNDANCE.
the GRATITUDE blend
G R A T I T U D E perhaps,the last emotion on our mind during times of emotional pain...
but we must remember to have gratitude always. In all that you are getting, gain understanding. That is worth repeating: In all that you are getting, gain understanding. Once you know what a thing is, and what it is not, you gain awareness. Tucked inside that awareness is the ability to explore the lessons and growth from any particular situation and, be grateful for that experience in your life.
Scholars, spiritual leaders, and scientists throughout history have deliberated on gratitude. More recently, the scientifically-validated benefits of gratitude are better understood.
There are an incredible amount of benefits surrounding gratitude.
For the individual:
increased happiness and positive mood
more satisfaction with life
less likely to experience burnout
better physical health
lower levels of cellular inflammation
encourages the development of patience, humility, and wisdom
increases prosocial behaviors
may help employees’ effectiveness
may increase job satisfaction
Expressing I AM grateful in every situation I experience has made a huge impact on my life- even in the extreme seemingly difficult circumstances.
i.e.- when handed a letter from the county sheriff with false accusations, I expressed gratitude for his kindness in doing so. I thanked him profusely so he left feeling gratitude, rather than frustration.
i.e.- when we moved back to TX, without a home to live in, I expressed daily gratitude for the generosity of my mom and the beauty that it was to live in the country for a week or so. (by the way, because of the need to live in the country, we desired a home in the country as well!)
i.e.- when I spend money anywhere, I give thanks for the money in my bank account to be able to purchase what I need. You'll be astounded when you give thanks for little amounts, much larger amounts appear.
i.e.- when my children interrupt my work day, I express gratitude for the many children I am blessed with, the many reasons I am interrupted in my day, and all of a sudden, my focus shifts from irritation to- you guessed it- GRATITUDE
These are just a few examples of how gratitude has shifted my mind and frequency. Use them as a beautiful launching pad for expressing gratitude in your own life.
In all your getting- gain understanding, in all things- express gratitude.
Speaking of expressing gratitude, nothing creates a feeling of thanks more than GIVING.
The Young Living Foundation is working with several women-led businesses across the globe, and one of them is a female artisan group called Mabira Collective located in Lugazi, Uganda. One of the most effective ways to break cycles of poverty is to provide women and mothers with sustainable jobs and fair pay so they can provide for the health and educational needs of their children. This partnership gave 752 women fair pay work. In addition to fair pay, women in the Mabira
Collective program receive benefits like school-fee sponsorship for their children and medical benefits as well as training in small business development, literacy, and health. They can also receive paid maternity leave, on-sight childcare, work from home options, and opportunities to advance into management positions.
the Peace and Calming Blend
peaceful, orderly, carefree and light,
that's what you are dear one...
As with most oils that contain orange and tangerine, Peace and Calming is an oil that attracts children of all ages creating a feeling of security and joy with every inhale. The name implies it all, however, as with many essential oils, we may forget the powerhouse this truly is- particularly with those who are overly active, have a struggle sitting peacefully or those who are easily agitated.
Depending on the person/situation, Peace and Calming is best when diffused and applied simultaneously. Apply of the nape of neck and forehead to create an immediate feeling of peace. Diffuse at bedtime to invoke feelings of a carefree heart and mind, in order to quell racing thoughts that disrupt perfect sleep.
Drip a few drops on a favorite stuffed animal to calm an anxious child, this has long been a practice for our family.
A deeper look into what makes up this lovely blend:
A first breath of citrus falls quickly into a deep base of Ylang Ylang with the perfect hint of patchouli.
