Living Beyond Your Feelings

Wednesday, October 18th, 2017

Living beyond my feelings contributes to my wellbeing, mentally, emotionally, physically and spiritually.  They all are key to a happy and healthy life.

Have you ever had several things to do, and they are all things you enjoy doing but can’t seem to get excited to do them?  Do your emotions play a roll in this?  Do your feelings contribute to it?  Does your personality have something to do with it? My guess would be yes to all three.

This is just one thought regarding how we manage to stay on task, accomplish our goals or stay focused for a certain amount of time to work on one project. To stay connected, and moving forward with peace and joy.

EMOTIONS are driven by many factors, it could be hormonal changes, stress, grief, illness, sadness, injury, loss, many more I’m sure I could come up with, but to name a few.

FEELINGS are those things I believe are driven by our thinking processes. If we think the right thoughts, encouraging, life breathing thoughts, healthy thoughts, I am convinced we can manage our feelings.  We may need help doing this.  Books are a great resource for us.

Personality   Our personality is who we are.  We can love ourselves right where we are.  We can have hope and faith in our future.  We may have areas of our personalities that we would like to change.  Many of our personality traits can be influenced by hormonal changes. Chemicals in the brain, DNA, and they’ve even seen how personality types may have different size parts of the brain.

In my opinion if we decide we want change that is a first step. A desire to change can ignite that excitement that we need to  accomplish it.  Maybe not over night, maybe one step at a time but through a desire to want change and having the correct natural healthy behaviors to feed this decision I believe we can do whatever we desire to do.

Natural ways to accomplish better health, mentally and emotionally I’ve seen personally.  Because I am a woman.  As women we have many hormonal changes all through life.  Puberty, PMS, menstruating, perhaps having one or more miscarriages, I had one, infertility, pregnancy, and after delivering that wonderful new life, many women experience postpartum depression, or postpartum anxiety.  As we age we experience peri-menopause, this could go on for years before menopause. Then there is post-menopause.  With each of these could come a myriad of symptoms.

I have seen emotional aromatherapy work day after day.  The science behind how and why these aromatic compounds work is fascinating.  I am not a chemistry major so I won’t go into detail here.  But the science is available and it is thrilling that through a natural source we can get relief, rejuvenated, refocused, reformed, and renew our lives to feel better and be better acclimated to a new and better life.

This way of living is not a one time deal.  Just as we eat during the day, we need to apply our aromatherapy to ourselves, and diffuse them in our environments.  I believe ingesting these beautiful plant based essential oil compounds are essential to my wellbeing.  Those that are certified to be pure and of a therapeutic grade and have a Supplement Facts on them, these are the only ones I  recommended for ingestion.  These types of essential oils can also further our goal for living healthier and more balanced.  We can move beyond those feelings and can get on to what we really have a passion for.

I keep all of my essential oils handy throughout my day. I put a couple of drops of the Balance Blend on my feet when I arise.  The ingestible ones I use as I would my food supplements.  For instance in the morning, I ingest lemon in 8 oz of water, I also try to do this 3 more times during the day.  I take 2-3 drops of Frankincense on my tongue, later in the morning I ingest 2 drops of Copaiba.  I like the Slim and Sassy Blend as a metabolism booster and to take away sugar cravings.

Depending on how I feel, I use my emotional aromatherapy, I pick which essential oil I want.  If I need a bit more peace, joy and confidence in myself  I use the Jasmine Touch. If I’m having feelings of boredom or disinterest I use the Passion Touch blend.

  • Because Jasmine has such an uplifting scent, using Jasmine Touch on our pulse points is the perfect way to uplift mood. Emotionally, Jasmine promotes feelings of joy, peace, and self-confidence. Applying Jasmine in the morning will help provide a positive outlook on the day and leave you feeling uplifted and confident.
  • When feelings of boredom and disinterest take over, Passion Touch blend will help to rekindle feelings of excitement, passion and joy.

I diffuse essential oils for an immune boost, air freshener or a pick me up or all three in different rooms.  If you are looking for more of a blend for better focus, I suggest the Focus Blend it helps to enhance the senses and sustain focus, this blend is perfect for staying on task when you are trying to study, or concentrate on a project.   I use essential oils in my shower routine.  I have a diffuser by my bed and I diffuse the Grounding Blend, 4-5 drops and it runs for 8 hours. My favorite is the Grounding Blend, this blend of essential oils promotes tranquility while bringing harmony to the mind and body, and balance to the emotions.  I use Lemon or the Protective Blend essential oils in the kitchen for cleaning fruits, veggies and any containers that come in from the store before I open them, and I use some in cooking.  These precious gifts of the earth have added so much to my life for the past 13 years that I wouldn’t want to go a day without them, and I don’t.

I believe it is imperative to strive to have a healthy mind and body.  Even though we go through many emotional imbalances through life we can bring that back in balance with aromatherapy.

Yes! You Can Control What You Think

Tuesday, January 20th, 2009

What You Conceive And Believe Is Up To You

Nature has built human beings so that they have control over the material that
reaches their subconscious mind. However, this does not mean that you
always exercise this control. Through the dominating thoughts that you permit
to remain in your conscious mind (it doesn’t matter whether these thoughts
are negative or positive), the principle of autosuggestion goes to work
impressing those thoughts on the subconscious mind. And, your subconscious
is not judgmental. It can be just as easily influenced by a negative idea or
a bad suggestion as it can by a positive thought or a good suggestion.

When speaking of the subconscious, it is like a fertile garden in which weeds
will grow if the seeds of more desirable crops are not sown. You can feed
your subconscious on creative thoughts or you can, by neglecting it, permit
thoughts of a destructive nature to find their way into this rich garden of the mind.

Habits grow out of doing the same thing or thinking the same thoughts or
repeating the same words over and over again. Habit may be likened to the
groove in a record, while the human mind may be likened to the needle
that fits into that groove. When any habit has been well formed, the
mind has a tendency to flow the course of that habit as closely as the needle
follows the groove on a record.

Habit is created by repeatedly directing one or more of the five senses
of seeing, hearing, smelling, tasting, and touching in a given direction.
After habit has been well established, it will automatically control and
direct your actions and responses.

What is Your Conscious Mind: Your conscious mind receives information
through the five senses of sight, smell, taste, hearing, and touch,
your conscious mind keeps track of what you need for thinking and
operating, and it filters out what you don’t need. Your conscious mind
( and what your memory retains) is the intelligence with which you normally
think, reason, and plan.

What is the Subconscious Mind: Your subconscious has access to
all the same information your conscious receives, but it doesn’t reason
the way your conscious mind does. It takes everything literally. It doesn’t
make value judgments, it doesn’t filter, and it doesn’t forget. It doesn’t draw
a distinction between good and bad, positive and negative.

The only thing it responds to is the intensity with which the idea is planted.
The stronger the emotion attached to an idea when planted in your
subconscious, the more prominent that idea will be.
