I met a friend for tea the other day and I heard these words from her. When I am healthy I will do that. It was profound. I heard her fears and I also heard mine.
How many times do we think we have to be something before we can do something? For this woman, it was her waiting for her health in order to volunteer to help young women. I thought to myself. Does she realize that by volunteering and helping other young women it would inspire her to get on that health plan she is waiting to get on?
And then I looked at me. Cuz everything is a mirror, right? What about you Heather? What are you waiting for?
For so long I was waiting for people to trust me before I shared oils with them. I couldn’t possible try to sell them something if they thought I might be pushy or salesy or trying to sell them some new fad? Maybe I wasn’t qualified to share the oils with them? Maybe I need to be trained to be an oil guru before I could share or teach a class?
And there was that Raindrop Therapy training you took so that you could give Raindrop Massages. You are sitting waiting for you to be perfect at it before you charge your friends to have this service. Even when you know that this service will change their lives, improve their immune system, and so many other things, besides the fact that it will bring you closer to them.
Why are we waiting? Waiting for more education? Waiting for better health? Waiting for the right time? When we are enough!
We are enough! We have what it takes, and we are ready! We just have to take those risks. We need to step out. But we need a support system. A group of people who surround us and cheer us on. We need oils too. Why? Because oils can help us with our confidence.
Have you heard me talk about Confidence in a Bottle? Valor oil? Yup, they used this on men before they went to war. It’s a blend of oils that will give you a feeling of confidence. It helps us to overcome fear and opposition so we can stand tall during adversity.
How about Abundance oil? This blend was specifically designed to enhance magnetic energy and to create the law of attraction through the magnetic field around us, to enhance one’s thoughts by electrical stimulation of the cells and to put out a frequency charge of prosperity and abundance.
Raising our frequency by using oils can help us in so many ways. It can help us to attract higher frequencies as well as make us feel better emotionally and spiritually. And don’t forget help us to attract people who will be our cheerleaders.
And then there is our Limbic System
The limbic system is directly connected to those parts of the brain that control memory, stress levels, heart rate, blood pressure, breathing, and hormone balance.
Get stuff done...tips for the Squirrels in my life.
I have been moving through and shifting a lot lately. I know that things have to change for me to get through some things I seem to feel stuck in. So, this week I have been shifting into awareness of what I am doing to sabotage my life. I see that I am falling back into old patterns and I don’t like it. I do love that I am aware of that shifting. That’s huge!
So, I reached out! I talked to my coach, my sisters and started journaling. Gratitude journaling has helped me break through some of the sadness about changing and setting new boundaries. And I know it’s working because I feel more grounded.
Today I started my morning with my gratitude journal and then my to do list. Which used to be a list of things that made me feel important that I never seemed to get through. Today, I set my timer on my laptop for some things on my list.
Oh my gosh. I got 4 things banged off my list in 30 minutes that would have taken me a whole day before.
Any squirrels out there? Oooh my Facebook beeped let’s see who that is. Oooh look at that pretty graphic that inspires me to make my own. Ooh lets send a love message to that woman I haven’t talked to in a while to see how she is doing. Oooh I have 14 tabs open on my laptop. Ooh I better go do my laundry. Ooh look at that dust pile I think I better sweep.
Can you relate? I get my inspiration from the free education and training I get with my company. Very powerful women do videos on what is working for them from things like organizing techniques to conscious language, to Instagram training. In the past I would watch all those videos but then “squirrel out” which means, take notes and then put them at the bottom of my pile.
I hope today I can inspire you to look at your messy desk, your pile of to-do’s, your laundry, your messy kitchen or the self-care you are missing out on. There are so many more hours in the day when you can set boundaries.
My timer just went off so it’s time for me to clean my kitchen and vacuum before my clients come for an oil class. I feel so much more grounded when I set timer, ask for help and set boundaries on where my energy is going.
Things are going to change around here because by setting timers and boundaries I am putting me first and giving myself way more time for me…and that means more time to shine.
Everyone wins. My business flourishes because I am more committed to those who need and want my support and I am much happier, so you know…happy wife happy life. Yup my honey is happier too.
What can you do today to make your life a little more grounded?
Start with writing all the things you are grateful for
Then go to a list of To Do’s.
Prioritize that list.
Then set the alarm on your phone, computer or stove and get to it. I set myself 30 minutes to get 3 computer/work things done. And now setting one for 20 minutes to clean my whole house. And if I stay on task until that timer goes, I will have it done in that 20 minutes. And if I don’t….it will take me all day and probably won’t get done.
Let me know some of your tips for staying non-squirrely.
And of course, I always end my blogs with inspiration oil suggestions. So today I am diffusing Loyalty oil. I tend to use my oils intuitively and this one called me from my oil shelf. I feel like it is speaking to me about being Loyal to my heart. The scents of Ylang Ylang, Lavender, and Geranium essential oils in the Loyalty blend help create a pleasant, relaxing environment, while Idaho Blue Spruce and Vetiver help support a sense of grounding. It is a free oil I got from my company. Everyone who orders natural amazing products for 12 consecutive months gets this oil mailed to them.
Setting boundaries and alarms, one drop at a time.
What I didn’t know I was about to receive when I became a member of Young Living…
Well of course I love my oils and of course they have become a huge part of my life. The pain is gone, the headaches and trips to the pharmacy are gone, my house is full of oils that replaced so many chemicals but there was something I had no idea about that happened when I became a member of this company.
If you take away all the products you are left with a company called Young Living. A company that was founded on helping people heal naturally. A company that was imagined and dreamed of by a man named Gary Young who had big plans and dreams of helping others. He had no plan of making people rich, as a matter of fact he could care less about money. What he wanted was to teach people about the power of plants. He was a farmer, a scientist and most of all a heart-based, hard working man.
My YL experience began 5 years ago when I was lost. I was looking for what I thought at the time was a quick fix to some health issues. I realized that there are no quick fixes. I needed a lot more than what google had told me would fix my adrenals. I needed more than just an oil called Nutmeg. I needed a whole lot more than an oil. I needed to get back on track. I needed to remove all those hazardous chemicals that were harming my body and may have even caused cancer in my daughter’s body, and most of all I needed love and support.
After using the oils for a few years and seeing so may miracles and feeling really great about my health there was something more. I was feeling like there was a lot holding me back from my greatness. I didn’t feel like I could be successful in an oil business or that I could do what I was meant to do. I had big blocks around earning money that had been following me for a very long time. My ex-husband spending all our savings on drugs, coming from a poverty mind set family and who knows what else was in the way of becoming abundant in all ways. I knew something wasn’t right when I just couldn’t seem to grasp the idea of being wealthy for doing what I loved and helping people do what they love.
I am authentic, kind, loving and truly want to help people, so what was blocking me from earning money doing this amazing work of teaching and selling products that would ultimately change people’s lives? I was in my own way.
I reached out to my uplines and asked for guidance and help. I had women from New Zealand, Florida, and Lousiana, North Dakota and Illinois call me and ask me what I needed….and they didn’t mean how to run a business…They wanted to know what I needed to be the best person I could be. They asked me how I was, not how my business was. They supported me over my tears and struggles. They coached me to see my greatness. They were available to me anytime I asked…And I had to learn how to ask for help by the way.
These women were leaders in my life. All they wanted for me was to break through any barriers that were stopping me from being my best Abundant, Awesome self.
I now have friends from all over the world. Yes, we are all Young Living members, some do the business and others just purchase the amazing products each month. We have a sisterhood. The oils brought us together. We talk about what oils to use but most of all we talk about how we can help each other be the best versions of ourselves.
In order to be a great leader, we must ask for help from great leaders. I am so blessed to have oil sisters who hold me up. I honor each and everyone of them for helping me to let go of all that isn’t serving me, and help be the amazing woman I know I am put on this planet to be.
Young Living isn’t just the most incredible (and #1) place to buy the best products on the planet. They are so much more. They are family. They truly want you to succeed in being who you are meant to be. I am so happy I took the plunge 5 years ago and bought a kit from this company. And I am truly honored to coach and help women who join my team. It is my mission to see oils in every home and it is also my mission to help my sisters to be the best versions of themselves…one drop at a time.
When I feel like I am shifting and growing, I like to diffuse and wear Release oil. It is a powerful blend for enhancing the release of memory trauma from the cells of the liver, where anger and hate emotions are stored. The frequency of the oils in Release may aid in letting go of negative emotions so one can progress in a more effective and efficient way. It helps to release frustration. The oils in this blend are: Ylang Ylang, Lavender, Geranium, and Sandalwood.
I also love wearing Abundance oil every day as my perfume. It was specifically designed to enhance magnetic energy and to create the law of attraction through the magnetic flied around us, to enhance one’s thoughts by electrical stimulation of the cells and to put out a frequency charge of prosperity and abundance. It may attract riches to oneself. It’s also great for supporting the immune system. It contains Orange, Frankincense, Patchouli, Clove, Ginger, Myrrh, Cinnamon Bark, and Spruce. It’s divine!
Although it seems like oils are a fad, they really aren’t. As you probably know they have been around for as long as plants have been around…a long, long time.
Now there are probably hundreds if not thousands of oil companies out there, vying for your business. And that’s because everyone is talking about them and everyone wants a piece of the pie.
But guess what? We (women) don’t want just any oils. We want oils that support our bodies. Ya, I get that smelling a wonderful scent brings us to great places and makes us feel great or not great. There is Science behind that, and I love that. But here is the thing…We aren’t going to stay attracted to oils that don’t work and I mean aren’t pure therapeutic oils. What’s the diff?
Most people think oils are about smell and they are. They smell good. But imagine if an oil was grown, picked and distilled to perfection. And then imagine it had nothing added. Now think about sending out for third party testing to make sure that company hasn’t added anything to it…
Who knows about chemistry? I only do cuz I researched after my head injury to look for oils that passed the blood brain barrier and would help support my brain. What I learned is that chemistry has everything to do with oils working and not oils just smelling good. And when I mean working, I mean going into all those cells and supporting all those body systems. From emotions to your immune system, pure oils can do wonders.
So, you get great oils that do great things and you still say why are the women so addicted? Just so you know, the people who buy their oils from the health food store or Walmart or Costco aren’t addicts? Why? Cuz more than likely (way more than likely) those oils are not therapeutic grade, so they smell great and that’s about it. But way more than that, those oils don’t come with support, love and community.
Women who are struggling with health issues, stress, family and relationship issues (and that is most of the population) are needing more than oils that smell good. They need emotional support. They need oils that go into their brains, muscles, bones, skin, immune system and work magic so that our body can do what it’s meant to do.
So, here is what they get when they buy oils from me. They get a woman who is selling something that she believes in. She is selling something she has researched. She is selling something more than a bottle of oil or a chemical free alternative. She is selling love and support. You won’t get that at Walmart or the Health Food Store. Just try to buy something at either of those stores and ask for a free class on how to use them, some make and take classes to learn how to make chemical free products for your home, a shoulder to cry on, a place to share your wins. How about a Rally every 3 months to hear about how these oils and products have completely changed peoples lives like me the person who is selling you these oils?
Ya me! I hear stories all the time from women who are no longer needing medications after using oils, women who can get through a stressful day and get a good night’s sleep because of the support of oils, women who have met new friends who have common interests, women who have left relationships that were toxic because they were finally releasing everything else in their bodies that were toxic.
Go ahead and ask some of those women if they’d rather go to Walmart for oils? Ask those women if their house was on fire and they could only grab a few things would oils be one of them.
If you haven’t experienced Young Living oils, then you are reading this thinking that is ridiculous. All oils are the same and you must be bat shit crazy to grab a bottle of oil when your house is on fire. Do you remember being a small child and freaking out when you lost your favorite blanket or teddy bear? Remember how supported you felt? Well oils are like that…only oils that really work.
So, go ahead and think I am bat shit crazy if you wish. But when you experience what I have in my body and in my life and when you hear the testimonials, I get to hear every day from women who are breaking through their barriers, one drop at a time. You may just want to come along for the ride.
Oils aren’t for everyone. They are for those who want to attract health, prosperity, healthy communities, new friendships, and a whole lot more.
So, oil up Sista’s! Make sure you’ve got oils that rock your world. Don’t be fooled and don’t miss out on the added benefits of oils sold to you from women who understand how they work…. because they have their own miracle stories.
