Malva aids in stopping the cycles of rejection. For many of us life is always about what we perceive things to be and not what they necessarily are in reality.
An initial trauma of rejection can sensitize a person to further perceived "slights" any time another falls short of what is expected in the relationship. This can cause distancing, "I'll leave so you can't hurt me." or hostility which prompts those they are in relationship with to also become defensive and withdraw. The cycle completes with the person feeling justified in their initial perception.
Malva helps to desensitize, soothe and unravel the reinforced patterning. Stopping the rejection cycle is the only way to obtain what's needed through relationships. Malva prompts the bravery needed to stay and experience the reality that's beyond the initial perception, and melt away the feelings of paranoia and not being loved.
When we're children we have dreams, lots of dreams and feel powerful and limitless to achieve anything we want. Then as we grow up, life happens. Perhaps bad things happen that creates limiting beliefs that get in the way?! Next, worry creeps in, sucking the wonderful energy out, lack of creativity causes us to feel bored, a bit grey, heavy, and uninspired. We sit with good intentions but with no idea how to get back that spark. How to ignite it? How to get it back ON? We want fireworks and #magic . We want long summer nights and belly laughs. We seek #wonder and #passion .
For some, maybe your not even asking for amazing, all you want is to feel a bit better and find some kind of #purpose in life, having some kind of desire bring back the #mojo .
This Passion Blend has rocked my world, I wear it daily on my diffuser necklace to self inspire, bringing out my #creative side and rekindle the passion for my purpose. I recommend this to all as the Full Moon of Aquarius begins making its way. Ignite new beginnings and bring your dreams to life every day!!
EMOTIONS & ESSENTIAL OILS
Did you know that essential oils can impact your emotions for the better?
What we smell impacts our Limbic System, which is in charge of our emotions and behavior.
So using natural essential oils that can influence our emotions for the better, is definitely one way to start managing and uplifting your emotions!
Over the next 6 weeks, I'll be sharing about the 6 Emotional Blends doTERRA has, in preparation for the 2 Emotions & Essential Oil Classes I'm teaching in August!
This week, we start with CHEER (the Uplifting Blend).
This blend is a mixture of Wild Orange, Clove, Star Anise, Lemon Murtle and Nutmeg.
I love using this oil when I'm feeling a bit gloomy emotionally. I diffuse it or even apply the roller bottle (It comes in a 5ML bottle or 10ML roller bottle which contains coconut oil as well).
Some of its top uses include:
1. DEPRESSION & PMS: Inhale aromatically or apply topically with a carrier oil to abdomen or pressure points on inside and outside below ankle bones.
2. HYSTERIA & ANXIETY: Diffuse aromatically or inhale.
3. DISCONNECTION: Inhale aromatically in palms of hands or diffuse.
4. CELLULAR HEALTH: Apply topically to bottoms of feet.
5. INFLAMMATION & STIFFNESS: Apply topically to affected areas with a carrier oil.
6. INDIGESTION AND IRRITABLE BOWELS: Apply topically to abdomen with carrier oil and bottoms of feet
7. BLOOD SUGAR AND CHOLESTEROL: Apply topically to bottoms of feet and over liver and pancreas areas with a carrier oil (An oil like coconut, olive, almond, etc.)
Emotionally, this oil can help individuals who are overcome by feelings of hopelessness and helplessness and restore hope again.
SHARE BELOW - What could you use this oil for?
Feel free to also share any other oils you are using and loving lately :)
P.S. There are 2 emotion classes coming up --> August 8th (webinar) and August 24th (in person). Check them out and RSVP here --> http://bit.ly/upcoming-classes-madewell345
Remember my friend Andie? These are her thoughts on some of her other favorite oils. “My mom has been putting some Past Tense on me too and I just love it. It just melts my brain a little bit. (settles it down a bit)” “I like Peace and Cheer. Peace helps me a lot especially when I’m around annoying people too. Like ….. and …..” “I have my Mom put some oils in my diffuser. I like serenity. And she puts vetiver to help me settle down at night.” Andie’s Mom loves them too! She shared this “She can choose which ones she wants and she can put it on and it gives her control. I can’t let her have access to medications and stuff but this is totally okay and if she uses too much I might feel frustrated that some was wasted but it isn’t going to hurt her. I like that a lot. I think it just makes her feel like she has a fall back. She knows “Oh I can cope with this if I do this.” Some tools. She has found that the coloring and the smells help. Sometimes she is rubbing and smelling and rubbing and smelling but she finds relief.
What a gift that Andie has found tools she can utilize to help herself feel better! Giving her some additional independence and emotional support is a blessing.
I've had a full day with clients and had one of them complete their therapy, I've talked myself out of a job; and I'm delighted 🙏
This job is a true honour, I get to accompany people as they explore their darkness and come out of the other side. It helps me do the same for myself and I'm truly grateful for every session with every beautiful client.
These words by Alanis Morisette perfectly describe the work: "There are so many parts that I have hidden and that I yet lost
There are so many ways that I have cut off my nose despite my face
There are so many colors that I still try to hide while I paint
And there are so many tunes that I secretly sing away .... Thank you for seeing me
I feel so less lonely
Thank you for guiding me
I hear your bide, your empathy" 😍🙏🕉
Can we find gratitude for even those moments that feel painful, dark, or bad? These moments are some of our greatest teachers if we choose to see them as such. Maybe we see a pattern of conflict arising among several of our relationships... is there an invitation there to look at your part? Perhaps your reactions to your own anger or fears causes you to be immediately defensive. Maybe you find yourself constantly losing love. What is your part here? Do you push love interests away out of your own fears of getting hurt? There are an infinite number of ways in which we can create and contribute to our own unpleasant experiences. How will you choose to address these patterns? Thank you #yogitea#therapy#therapist#emotionalhealth#thecolorfulmind#happiness#patterns#behavioralhealth#mentalillness#selfcare#losangeles
I am sitting here listening to podcasts on emotional health and thinking about my own. He mentioned how real growth and freedom in life is breaking down the limiting belief systems we have grown accustomed to. It is funny to think that a year or two ago I wouldn't have even known what that meant, but that this is now a mantra of mine. In everything I do, big and small, to question why I do it and to change it if it is not something that is serving me for the better. I truly believe there isn't a better way to love yourself, than to question yourself of each and every thought and belief you have and then free yourself from the limiting and self sabotaging patterns you live by.

Have patience ✨
I have always had a habit of looking forward to the future rather than living in the moment. That's led me to struggle with anxiety issues. I needed to remind myself during my workout this morning that PATIENCE is key ~ as long as I continue to work hard to achieve my goals, things will be fine & I should aim to be more present. I wasn't sure if I wanted to get this personal on here, but I think it could be a nice reminder for others as well as myself 💖
I'll admit I was skeptical about drinking Ningxia Red and its impact on my energy level. My friend with Lupus swears by it, and she's my mentor with YL products. I decided to try it one month. 3 days in, and I've cleaned out all my pantry items, organized my spices, organized my medications and dog's supplies, cleaned out my fridge, cleaned out my bathroom cabinets and organized the kitchen sink cabinet, and that was all in ONE DAY! Those things have been on my list since we remodeled 3 years ago when my autoimmune illness hit. They were things I just didn't have the energy for. Now, either I'm nesting and having at baby at 46 (no I'm not), or this healthy drink (2 ounces per day) is helping this body function the way it's supposed to work! 😊😊💕💕 Ningxia Red is going on my list every month!
These are a few of my favourite things. In my practice I bring out ALL the tools in my tool chest. These bottles you see here are called Aura Soma. They were created by Vicky Wall from the UK. She was Clairvoyant at birth and a Pharmacist. I have to say they are so powerful to work with! The #1 bottle ( the blue over magenta) is called the Physical rescue . It's my Advil... Rescue remedy... I carry this bottle wherever I go as it's for acute pain, sciatica, burns, bruises, high blood pressure, bronchitis, diarrhea and cystitis!! It literally cured my cystitis! But not only are they working on the physical, they work on all subtle bodies. So your attitude or perspective starts to change for the better. I so LOVE this product. I've been working with Aura Soma since the mid 90's. I feel it's played a big part in my Spiritual growth. In fact, I know it has.. So when working with a client and one of these bottle calls to them, I know, time for a shift. So exciting. Thank you@AuraSoma. Thank you Vicky Wall🙏If you're feeling stuck somewhere or someway in your life,
this product may be just what you need in order to move forward🙏
Grief isn't something you get over, it's something you get through."
Grief is the natural response to loss. It's the emotional suffering you feel when someone or something is taken away.
5 stages: Denial, Anger, Bargaining, Depression, Acceptance
Not everyone who grieves will go through these stages nor do you need to to heal. There is no typical response to loss as there is no typical loss.
There is also no " normal" timetable for grieving. Healing happens gradually, it can't be forced or hurried.
When grieving the most impt thing to do is to care of yourself. Face your feelings,look after your physical health, don't tell yourself how to feel and prepare for grief triggers. Ie anniversaries, milestones
Please practice self compassion, pay attention to moments of joy and continue to laugh. Laughter heals.
It's summer and shouldn't we just be having fun?! It's tough to get my three girls to decide on one activity. Two have fun ideas, but not the same idea. And the third well she's just saying no to all the ideas. I have her trying to identify her feelings using the emotions wheel. And up next is the @itoviscanner to see how her feelings show up on it. But first I'm working on helping her to identify a feeling or two so we can select oils to support her. And so I can connect with her using touch to apply the oils. No one ever said being a mom is easy did they? But I'm very very thankful to have these oils to help us. My oil of today is forgive. I have some feelings that I need to release and let go of because my heart ❤️ isn't complying yet.
Переедание на эмоциях – очень женская проблема!
С самого детства девочек учат: будь вежливой, будь доброй, улыбайся. Иначе с тобой никто не будет дружить и принц на тебе не женится.
👸 В сказках падчерицы, которые превращаются в принцесс, всегда послушны, скромны и не выказывают недовольство. В то время, как злая мачеха ведет себя агрессивно и в итоге проигрывает
Дружба с телом – это не только принятие своей текущей формы и работа с исходником. Это глубокий разбор и понимание всех процессов, влияющих на его состояние.
Мы должны научиться принимать свои эмоции, не отрицать их наличие, не уходить от эмоций при помощи переключения на еду или другие привычки.
Еда не решает никакой проблемы, кроме голода!!!
Важно понять, если я поругалась с мамой и съела торт, я все равно поругалась с мамой!
Где же черпать радость? Как отвлекаться от негатива?
Делюсь своим личным списком ☺️
Рекомендую вам создать аналогичный, сохранить в заметках телефона, чтобы возвращаться и перечитывать в стрессовые периоды:
🌸 Прогулки на велосипеде по вечернему городу, или пешие прогулки 🌸 Полежать в тишине в кровати с любимым журналом,
🌸 Устроить телефонный детокс на сутки: дать айфону уйти в глубокую разрядку и не включать его сутки, посвятив это время семье, близким друзьям, спорту, прогулкам
🌸 Горячая ванна с солью, а на стиральную машину поставить ноутбук с классным фильмом😍
🌸 Устроить девичник с подругами, говорить обо всем до утра
🌸 Пробежать с максимальной скоростью, а потом сделать стрейчинг в парке
🌸 Купить себе новую косметику
🌸 Сделать дыхательную гимнастику
Вы можете составить свой список налаживания эмоционального состояния, альтернативный бездумному поеданию конфет!
Независимо от того,сколько у вас времени и какой образ жизни вы ведете, найти время на себя всегда можно! Главное, хотеть!😊👍🏽😘.
Девочки, а как вы справляетесь с эмоциями? Поделитесь своими советами ☺️☺️ ----------------------------------------------------------#sport#motivation#goals#emotion#emotionalhealth #
"In order to live a healthy, happy and prosperous life, and fulfill the reason we are each here – our mission and purpose – we must return to our natural state of being, centered in and identified with spirit." ✋🏽👁 💞#heididupree
Self love is a rare gift, especially in its purest state. It’s not something that comes off as “Oh, look at me! Look at how loveable I am!” No. Just no. Self love when you make a mistake and instead of bashing yourself and lowering your own self-worth, you hold your chin up and say, “Hey, it’s okay. I made a mistake and proved I was human again. No biggy. Let’s learn from this and move on.” Self love isn’t narcissistic. It’s something we’re entitled to. I start this journey today❤️
The biggest lies are the ones we tell ourselves. If you want to transform ANY area of your life, you have to get completely honest with yourself.
It's ok that you make mistakes or are a little scared, face your fears, own your mistakes, and create strategies to get you where you want to be. Be honest with yourself as to why you haven't reached your goal and no more excuses. You have to do hard things to get amazing results.
“You Are Not Special” - The Subtle Art of Not Giving A F*CK (Chapter 3), Mark Manson.
This is probably my favorite chapter and this book is probably in my Top 2. At first this may sound harsh or even negative but when we start to believe we are “special” we start to believe we DESERVE things without having to put in the work to EARN it. One of the principles I’m working to teach in my house to myself and especially to my kids is “NOBODY OWES YOU ANYTHING. GO OUT AND GET IT.” #WANITLIKEYOUSAYYOUDO
I am happy for the rain this morning. A day of gently planning our school year is needed. I say gently because every year I've made such grand plans...perfect plans...life stealing plans. Not this year. I have simple goals for my children - to learn more about their Creator; to be creative in the still moments; and to learn the art of others. So much in life gets in the way of these things. The beauty of homeschooling is that you can focus where you're called while learning the required things. My prayer is I don't loose sight of this in 2017/2018.
Coming soon! If you are in or near San Antonio we will have several class/workshop dates soon for whole life wellness and how to incorporate essential oils and natural alternatives into your everyday life. If you are not near no worries...putting together some virtual classes also 🙋🏼What are some of the things you want to learn more about? Who's in?! Comment or message me to be sure I get you on the invite list! #wholelifewellness#essentialoils101
The body stores emotions and #chestopeners are particularly good for releasing sadness, grief, anger and frustration. The more you expand your sternum, rib cage and the rest of your upper body with chest openers, the more blood, oxygen and nerve circulation will be freed up to invigorate you mentally and physically🙏🏼✨✨✨ El cuerpo guarda emociones y las poses que abren el pecho son particularmente útiles para liberar tristeza, rabia y frustración. Mientras más expandas el esternón, caja torácica y el resto de la parte de arriba de tu cuerpo, más sangre, oxígeno y circulación eléctrica fluirá para darte vitalidad mental y física. #yogaposes
It's really sad how true this is. Aren't we all in this together? Aren't we all on the same side? Aren't we are all trying to progress? Why is it so hard to support each other's unique vision of progress? Let's try to keep things simple and compassionate. Be kind. Be supportive. Be respectful. Be happy. Be progressing. Be positive. •••Pic from Kaelin Tuell Poulin•••
Mindfulness is a practice of knowing oneself:
"FEELINGS are understood as they arise, understood as they remain present, understood as they pass away. THOUGHTS are understood as they arise, understood as they remain present, understood as they pass away. PERCEPTIONS are understood as they arise, understood as they remain present, understood as they pass away." (Samyutta Nikays 47:35)
From a new book I'm reading, 'The Art and Science of Mindfulness', Shauna L. Shapiro & Linda E. Carlson
"Mindful awareness is fundamentally a way of being - a way of inhabiting one's body, one's mind, one's moment by moment experience. It is a natural human capacity. It is a deep awareness; a knowing and experiencing of life ad it arises and passes away each moment. Mindful awareness is a way of relating to all experience - positive, negative and neutral - in an open and receptive way. This awareness involves freedom from grasping an wanting anything to be different. It simply knows and accepts what is here now. Mindfulness is about seeing clearly without one's conditioned patterns of perceiving clouding awareness, and without trying to frame things in a particular way. It is important to learn to see in this way because how a person perceives and frames the moment generates ones reality."
