I was very lucky to spend my early childhood with a mum who showered me with love and affection. Who was and still is my biggest hero.She was diagnosed with cancer at the tender age of 38 (the very age I will be next year) and my world fell apart when she lost her battle two years later. I was 14. The day she died was the day I felt abandoned by life. There really wasn’t any tears. I was way too strong for that.
I went from being a very bubbly confident little girl to a young lady who started to self-destruct. Numbing and emotionally withdrawing from life. I spent my early adult years making sure I never got hurt like that again. That kind of anger held inside eats away at your soul. It also manifests as illness in the body and for me, that resulted in heart surgery. Yep, my heart was literally broken.This was the wake-up call that I could not carry on this way.After that begin my journey within. First Crystals, then Kundalini Yoga and Plant Medicine (aka essential oils!)
I began to soften.
Fast forward to a short few weeks ago and I was again brought to my knees. This time, however rather than put on a brave face to the world while the anger, confusion and upset ate me away on the inside, I have shared, quite openly about how I’ve been feeling (If you follow me on Insta no doubt you’ll have noticed - sorry not sorry haha)
I’ve opened up fully to my friends & family, and most importantly - myself. I have cried every tear. I’ve sobbed uncontrollably on the floor. I’ve gotten angry, mad. I have FELT every single part of the whole process. In short - I have grieved.
Whilst this pain has been pretty intolerable. I know the recovery will be swift.
It reminds me of the very different experiences I had when giving birth to my babies. With Leah, I was determined not to feel a thing. I opted for an epidural which resulted in me being completely wiped out after the birth. The recovery was SLOW and painful.
With Louis, it was a completely natural birth and whilst the pain was that intense you can’t even remember it afterward, the recovery was immediate and well like I said you don’t even remember how painful it was, as your too busy enjoying life as it is NOW.
I share all this because I want to show what these practices do for us.
We don’t always see how working with meditation, yoga, vibrational medicine and the such impacts us day to day, but when the big shit hits the fan, well THAT’S when you put it all into play and THAT is what carries you through. These tools can support us in the toughest of times, and also over the long term - they help us to soften and awaken.
So on that note, it would be rude of me not to give you a couple of updates....
Firstly this is a gentle reminder that there are only 2 days left to get your hands on these 3 FREE mood management oils.
Balance - The warm, woody aroma of dōTERRA Balance Grounding Blend creates a sense of calm and well-being. We perfectly blend Spruce, Ho Wood, Frankincense, Blue Tansy, and Blue Chamomile with Fractionated Coconut Oil to offer an enticing fragrance that promotes tranquility and relaxation. Spruce, one of the oils in dōTERRA Balance, was used by Native Americans for health and spiritual reasons and is still used today to bring harmony to the mind and body. Ho Wood, Blue Tansy, and Blue Chamomile can ease anxious feelings, while Frankincense provides a grounding, balancing effect on emotions. I use this every morning & throughout the day when I need to get out of my head and into my body.
Citrus Bliss - Citrus Bliss Invigorating Blend merges the benefits of citrus essential oils. We combine the powerful essences of Wild Orange, Lemon, Grapefruit, Mandarin, Bergamot, Tangerine, and Clementine with a hint of Vanilla Absolute to form this unique and harmonious blend. Citrus Bliss has natural, potent compounds with cleansing properties. Mixed with water, Citrus Bliss is a perfect solution for wiping down countertops and other surfaces while producing a fresh, sweet scent. This is in my diffuser whilst I work. Smells DIVINE!
Serenity - The newly updated doTERRA Serenity Restful Blend has a calming and relaxing aroma that provides a unique user experience. This perfectly balanced, tranquil blend can be felt immediately, transporting the user to a state of blissful repose. doTERRA Serenity combines essential oils renowned for their ability to lessen feelings of tension and calm emotions, and support a restful sleep when used aromatically. Apply one to two drops to the hands and inhale throughout the day to help reduce worry from life’s daily stressors, or diffuse at night to help quiet a restless baby or child. The addition of Cedarwood, Ho Wood, and Vetiver essential oils gives dōTERRA Serenity a grounding aroma that calms the mind and soothes the senses. doTERRA Serenity can be used in conjunction with doTERRA Serenity Restful Complex Softgels. The doTERRA Serenity essential oil blend creates a relaxing environment while the softgels promote a restful night’s sleep. In diffuser, every night, without fail!
All three are daily staples for me and you just need to place a 200pv order to get them.
- For those who already use oils, this is an awesome opportunity to stock up.
- For those who haven't yet started their oily journey - now really is the time! ( I recommend starting with the Home Essentials Kit, because well it has ALL the home essentials...)
- I’m also now happy to be offering private Kundalini Yoga sessions from either my place or yours.
- And Finally all October 'Intimate Women's Gatherings' are now full, but November dates can be found here.
