One of the biggest items, was overcoming rejection. Wherever you are in the process, today on the blog, it's getting real as we share 5 tools to overcome rejection, find belonging, and love yourself.

Healthy snack inspo: Epic bars and Eden pumpkin seeds. I keep these in my car, at my office, and at home so I'm never stuck somewhere without a good high protein, filling snack option. The bison bars are paleo friendly and a great option for those on an #AIP diet. 💡Pumpkin seeds are high in zinc and magnesium, two of the most common mineral deficiencies today. I can tell when I'm low in zinc because I will start to crave pumpkin seeds, red meat, oysters, and spinach-- some of the most zinc dense foods available.
Low zinc can cause acne as well! Vegetarians and vegans in particular are prone to low zinc and high copper. These two minerals need to be kept in careful balance. High copper and low zinc will often present as irritability, anxiety, restlessness, insomnia, and mood swings. In extreme cases it can look very much like bipolar disorder or severe ADHD. In fact, many people go on mood stabilizing medications when the root cause of their imbalance is nutritional. ••••••💡In Chinese medicine, both bison and pumpkin seeds nourish kidney qi. Signs of kidney qi imbalance are low thyroid function, slow metabolism, fatigue, weakness in the low back or knees, hair loss, frequent urination, dental issues, or waking up early in the morning and being unable to get back to sleep. Kidney qi imbalance often indicates problems with your adrenal glands.
If you're experiencing these symptoms, schedule an appointment and let's find out if your zinc and copper ratios are optimal or if your kidneys need support. It's an easy fix that will make you feel world's better. #themoreyouknow

My hubby and I were talking about our lives before essential oils, and it wasn't pretty, friends. I was sick constantly, and was chasing one pill with another to reduce all the crazy side effects of my meds. I remember saying to him one night, "I can't keep doing this. I feel like I'm just not really living---just existing." We agreed something had to change. So, I reached out to my friend who had shared about Young Living. I knew she had had great success using oils for her family, but I was still skeptical about whether they would work for me. I took a step of faith and ordered them anyway. Friends, purchasing my starter kit from Young Living is the BEST decision I've ever made for my health. Since the day these beautiful oils arrived at my door, we sleep better, we have kicked most traditional meds to the curb, and we are so much healthier and happier. Now that I'm a mama, I've been so grateful to have a safe, effective alternative for my son.
I remember how nervous I was ordering my kit, so for those of you who are thinking about diving into this oily lifestyle, let me make it a little easier. Today, I'm offering $20 back via PayPal to anyone who buys a Premium Starter Kit! 🎉🎉🎉 Plus, Young Living is giving away a FREE bottle of Tangerine oil 🍊to anyone who orders their kit in the month of May! Follow the link in my profile to learn more about the kit and to sign up!! I've never heard anyone say they regretted buying their starter kit, only that they wish they had done it sooner! So go snag yourself a killer deal with one today!! 🌿🌿🌿💕

Today's mantra: I have to keep becoming more myself, regardless of what you think about me. •
I like being me. I like the freedom of not needing followers or likes. I like how it feels not to conform myself. I like how it feels not to share for anyone else but me. I like how it feels when I start to attract the people who are truly aligned with my vibration. I like coming out as me. I like feeling free.
May you feel the same freedom today.

I have one week left at my current job, and I'm going to miss it like crazy. Times of transition call for big time emotional support, so I'm pulling out all these favorites to help with some of the feelings that come along with goodbyes and changes.
I got Agilease for free in my Essential Rewards order this month. I was so excited to try it because I have so many joint and inflammation problems from my autoimmune illnesses. I have been using Agilease for 2 weeks and my joints have never felt better! My doctor even asked me what I was taking bc my joints looked so much better. So for all you autoimmune people, DM me so I can help you get started. 👊🏻
"Your shame is like a heavy black cloud that surrounds you and makes you unable to move - to create a connection, to express yourself, to fulfill your needs, to excel"
This must be how it feels like to have a poor self-image. 💠
We all have a need to feel desireable, competent, successful, attractive and valuable. Good self-esteem is the feeling of being worth something in our personal, social and professional life. It stems from the feeling that we have been loved and respected as children of family, friends and school. A early life characterized by respect, acceptance and success fosters a good self-esteem. Conversely, an upbringing characterized by criticism and rejection will teach us what is not acceptable and further that it is impossible to admire, love and recognize one as a person. 💠
Just as with autonomy, a good self-image gives freedom. A feeling of embarrassment and shame will hold us back in life, and in many contexts we will avoid possibilities, becouse we think that we cant handle them. Or we choose the easiest path or challenge becouse we dont dare a harder and more rewarding one. 💠
The goal should be to choose a life that improves our self-image. How can we feel good with ourselves, accept ourselves without being overly self-punishing or insecure? That is the challenge! 💠
Its true, all the advice and therapy out there helps. Do it! Try it! Explore all the health options that are safe for you to try. Walk regularly, change negative thoughts into positive ones, get medications if that's your choice. BUT to all those that do not live with chronic "whatever", none of those options are cures. At the end of the day, we can walk, laugh, eat right and still go to bed in tears from the pain, the exhaustion, the struggle. Every morning we have to make that choice again - to get up, force ourselves to see the positives in living a life in pain (whether mental/emotional/physical), to be brave enough to grab that cane or to sit in that wheel chair (and yes, it does take bravery) - to get out our front door and face the same life others do with less strength. But perhaps that's what makes us all stronger in the end. 💜
Only a few more days left to get the Premium Starter Kit with 12 oils for $160! I cannot express enough how much every single family needs these oils in their home for yourselves and your family! You can use these oils for EVERYTHING! My only regret was not getting the kit sooner. But if you know anything about our story with oils then you know the only reason it took us so long was because Tim wasn't convinced we needed them until he was in major need of head support one day and I swiped some Peppermint oil on his forehead and within minutes he was better. 😉I also can't get over what a sweet deal this is!! 12 oils, diffuser, 24% discount, community, samples, a welcome package with goodies from me, and to s w e e t e n the deal •even more• through the rest of the month I will give you $20 cash back if you order your kit by May 31st!! That makes all you see in the picture for $140!! Incredibly amazing deal!! 😍😍😍
social media is a drug. a high. I genuinely believe relationships + emotional health are not as authentic as they once were because we live in an era where you could be going through a rough patch internally or with your gf/bf and instead of facing the issues head on immediately, reconciling apologetically with humility...you can log on to Instagram, Snapchat, Facebook, etc, and be ego stroked.
"😍"..."😘"..."🙌🏾"..."👏🏾"... "you're so dope" comments send dopamine endorphins to your body relieving stress, distorting and distracting your mind from acknowledging the real issues you're facing privately. the loneliness you feel away from your phone. the BeautiFULL relationship you have/had that just needs/needed work + humility to save.
Long story short,
STOP letting social media be anesthesia to your reality. innerstand who lusts you for what you show and who genuinely LOVES you.
👉🏼Everyone needs some emotional support now and then. I find on my flare-y days that Motivate and Cheer help me to be a bit more productive and "with it". ✌🏼Peace works well for me when I feel overwhelmed by life - especially when I start feeling like life is insurmountable.
I don't know about you, but even though one part of my brain knows that a flare will unflare, it doesn't feel like that in the midst of it. I feel a little panicky that it won't ever stop. Anyone else know what I mean?
Well, Peace definitely relaxes my spirit and helps me to quit stressing, which in turn helps me feel better much faster. What a crazy cycle.😜
Are you pushing and straining towards your goals and dreams? If you are like me, we so desperately want to be done with our current circumstances and BE THERE! Yet every single day holds it's own opportunities and lessons that slowly accumulate and build the character, the strength, the wisdom and the stamina to enable us to BE THERE. Everyday and every single step is important. You WILL get there, but in the meantime enjoy and be present today. It is a gift. #emotionalhealth#dreamer#freedom#emotionalhealth#entrepreneur#bepresent#oilycoach#journeytowholelife#oolalife
Before you can get that body you want, you have to go on a mental exploration into why you have the body you have now. Stress and weight are directly related. Before you can get that relationship you want or get out of that relationship you want to leave, you have to examine why you're single in the first place or why you're in the toxic situation in the first place. Before you can get a handle on your emotions and feelings you have to understand your THOUGHTS. It all starts with your MIND. Your mental health is the beginning of getting all other facets of your life in order. Without good mental health, EVERYTHING falls apart. Physical health, emotional health, financial health etc. Make sure you're getting enough sleep. Make sure you're meditating daily. Make sure you're talking with professionals or trusted advisors if you feel your mind slipping. Protect your mental health at all cost.

Hello Beauties! 🦋Are you ready to learn about your Crown Chakra?!? ✨🌈✨If you're enjoying this series, I would love for you to pass it forward & share the love with your friends! So please tag them below and let's jump in 🌈Our Crown Chakra, the last Chakra of our 7 main chakras, represented by a violet or pure white light, our Crown 👑is located just above our head. Often referred to as the center of Enlightenment, this Chakra represents; 🌈our connection to the Universe, Divine Love, and Divine Wisdom, 🌈our spirituality, 🌈our relationship with our higher self, God, or whatever we feel connected to spiritually, 🌈universal inspiration from outside sources, 🌈our Life/Soul Purpose,🌈 our Alignment, consciousness and Inner Peace. 👸🏻Balanced - when this center is balanced, we have a strong connection to Spirit and to the Universe. We believe in the love and support of a Source that resonates with us and that we have faith in. We are open to receiving love, guidance and inspiration from the Universe and a larger source of love and wisdom that exists at least partially somewhere outside of ourselves.🤴Imbalanced - When this center is out of balance, there tends to be very little activity within this chakra, but areas where you may notice issues are;✨Limited beliefs, you may find it difficult to understand or respect the beliefs of others, feelings of depression, addictive behaviours, feelings of apathy, nervous system disorders, feelings of being lost and incomplete, chronic worrying, and chronic exhaustion. If the crown chakra becomes unbalanced, we feel disconnected spiritually, and as though we are living without any direction or purpose. Sometimes, when you experience physical ailments and dis-eases that seem to continually surface without a root trigger or cause, it is likely to be an out-of-balance crown chakra, as this chakra affects the six energy centres below, and practically your entire being. 🙏💫If any of these resonate with you, or you wish to learn more, follow along as next we'll learn simple self-healing exercises to bring you more balance & healing to this center.🌈Love & Blessings, Kerry.

STORY | OF | COURAGE: This is Marica, Afghan mother of 8-four girls and four boys & 18 grandchildren. She also loves the DALLAS COWBOYS, and during football season, she does not leave the house on Sundays! My little Texas heart was so happy!
I get SO excited when our Produce Stands and Markets start filling up with tons of fresh color! It's a pure sign warmer weathers finally right around the corner here in the PNW...and we love supporting our local farmers when it happens
It's important even if you eat organic, to wash your fruits and veggies since, well...you have no idea what touched your foods before you
Did you know you can clean your fresh fruits and veggies with any of your citrus oils?! Just a couple drops added to a bowl of water and let them soak. Lemon is my favorite oil to use!
I usually let them sit for about five minutes, rinse and pat dry. You'll LOVE the flavor it adds too!
I just dropped my hubby and two kiddo's off at the airport for a visit with grandma!! 😭 Although I have been away from them before (dōTERRA events and my annual girls trip), never have I been in my own home without them! 😥
Fortunately, I have my emotional oil blends at my side ALWAYS! 🙌 I would be an absolute train wreck 🚂without them! Cheer (the uplifting blend) and Console (the comforting blend) are my entire world and I am so very grateful! 🙏
Life can take a toll on your body and emotions. Too many people don’t understand this connection. Instead of releasing emotions and healing, individuals continue to push their emotions deeper and deeper. Left unchecked, negative feelings like anger, pain, and fear can move into the stomach, kidney, liver, heart, or other vital systems—essentially taking over the body and mind. In turn this drives emotions deeper into the body, creating a negative downward spiral.
Young Living essential oils offer natural solutions to combat and overcome negative emotions. By using these wonderful oils, you are adding to the power within to overcome hurdles that might be standing in your way of achieving greater wellness, purpose, and abundance.
Join me for a one hour class tomorrow night to learn how to support your emotional health naturally! This is part 1 of a 2 part series. If you'd like to attend, comment or message me and I'll add you to the event! 💛
And this is just the physical aspect of it. Massage can help you in so many different levels. Either physical and mental or emotional, it will give you the right guidance to help you awaken your inner healer so you can heal yourself. The massage benefits are endless...💆🏻🌾💕👌🏽✨

How do nasty toxins build up in the first place? External toxins enter the body as a result of consuming processed foods, meat and dairy, refined sugars, alcohol, cigarettes, medicines and even water. Pollution, cleaning products and cosmetics are also sources of external toxins. Internal toxins are created within us, such as yeast overgrowth, bad bacteria, chronic stress and negative thinking.
Detoxifying the body has many benefits including improved immune system functioning and clearing of inflammation and mucus, with detox devotees boasting of their improved digestion, newfound energy stores, and glowing complexions. In addition, I find my clients experience deeper mental clarity, a renewed sense of empowerment and drive, a renewed sense of comfort and confidence in their own skin, elevated mood, empowerment to live a healthier lifestyle and a happier more balanced state of mind. What's going on in the inside, shows on the outside. Detoxing can bring the body back to homeostasis, maximising its ability to heal – physically, emotionally and mentally.
This oil, distilled from a pretty Caribbean flower, is typically used as a go-to for combatting anxious feelings, helping promote a sense of calm and peace, and even being an aphrodisiac, but if you're interested in the emotional benefits of essential oils, and how they can help you work through challenges in your life, including personal blocks, and past trauma or hurts, then this oil becomes even more useful. Personally, I've been working through quite a few things lately, and have been discovering new ways to support my emotional wellbeing with oils. Sometimes, if I feel drawn to a certain oil one day, I'll look up more info on it and what it's used for in the emotional realm, and it all makes sense. I firmly believe my body craves what it needs. If you're interested in learning more about oils and how they can best benefit YOU, please reach out. Website in bio, or you can DM me here. Wishing peace and calm on all of you (especially you moms of the 5 and under crowd 😂) as Hump Day rolls to a close! Anyone know what they're making for dinner? 😳😂 #ylangylang#essentialoils#emotionalhealth#peaceandcalm#personaljourney#selfcare#giveyourbodywhatitneeds#mom#thinkpositive#sanity

✨today's message.... Re-re-confirming that we are indeed on the right path. The path is clear for us to begin speaking our voice through the loudspeaker of our Truth. The swan reminds us to be graceful in our endeavours, yet when she is pushed, she can get aggressive and defensive. All is provided, all is here, and you are ever ready. Such beautiful message for new moon in Gemini today 🌚 a perfect time for new beginnings and reflection.
Because it's the new moon I felt to consult my other deck - The Wild Unknown. I don't yet read from this deck. Head on over to my other page @jamieskitchen__ where I share their reading from the guidance book x
Manifest your most abundant life today. The time is now.
Happy new moon 🌙 ,
