Essential Oils, Health

A Healer in Every Home

When I was first introduced to Essential Oils I laughed and said, “I am not a Hippy. I don’t believe in that kind of stuff.” It was not until I was recovering from a knee surgery that I final agreed to try Deep Blue because the stuff from my doctor was not relieving the symptoms I was experiencing. I was amazing at how quickly I got relief. I started using more and more of the doTerra products and learning the science behind them.

I had been using them in my home for a few years when Ronai Brumett shared her experience with me and asked way I was not a doTerra Wellness Advocate and getting my oils at better then wholesale. That is what brought me to this point.

I wanted to help other discover what I had, which is that with a book and a box of doTerra Essential Oils I could support my families physical and emotional well-being.

Holistic Health Practitioner, Laura Jacobs’ motto is “A Healer in Every Home”. Her motto has resonated with me for years, but I have not known how to share that message. So, I became a Certified Essential Oil Coach, I thought it would become easier for me to support others in understanding how to use Essential Oils to support their well-being.

My goals is share doTerra and the benefits of Essential Oils with as many people as possible through sampling, wellness consultations, and classes. I want to empower families like Ronai did for me. I want there to be a Healer in every home!

I have an amazing team of doTerra Wellness Advocates that also love to teach and support others. We are excited to help others as Ronai says, use doTerra daily. Check out her DO YOU DOTERRA DAILY? posts.

doTerra has an amazing Empowered Life Series to support continuing education. One of my favorites is Empowered Life Series: Mood and Emotional Health, because I truly believe that our emotional health effects our physical health.

I AM - The Wizard of Oz
Self-Discovery

I AM – The Wizard of OZ

When I was growing up I thought I was crazy when I heard the voice in my head. It was not until I started my journey of self discovery by taking personal development courses around 2006 that I learned differently. Each courses seemed to referred to it differently; “the sub-conscience”, “It”, “I AM” or some other name. The one that has resonated with me is I AM.

There are many time in my life I have felt that I AM – The Wizard of OZ, a con or fraud. There is the I AM I perceive, the I AM I hear in my head, the I AM I am currently being, the I AM I want to be, and the I AM others perceive no to be.

So many times I felt a lone in this battle with I AM. Once I learned about it and started recognizing it for what it was, I started practicing I AM Affirmation. Life started shifting to the I AM I want to be, but I still felt like it was a fraud. How could it be that with more understanding there also came more frustration and confusion? It is all about perception. Some of the problem is our perception of self is often is over critical.

Take a look at it this way through the imagery created by Analytic Lessons from Behind the Curtain, The Wizard of Oz — Perception vs Reality

The theme of MGM’s adaptation is persistently evident. From a young girl’s perceptions of a black and white life in rural Kansas, springs a technicolored world of gold and emeralds. Dorothy’s adventures in the Land of Oz are full of symbols and metaphor as she follows the yellow brick road in her quest to return home.

Along the way, the stranded Dorothy meets powerless munchkins, a brainless scarecrow, a heartless woodsman, and a cowardly lion in her quest to find an all-powerful wizard. At least those are the perceptions.

By the end of the tale, the wizard is proven a con, the lion brave, and the scarecrow merely in need of a diploma. The genius of the wizard proves to be his deep understanding that perceptions and realities are often quite different.

In the final scenes, once again perception is questioned. When Dorothy fails to return with the wizard over the rainbow, her initial misery is alleviated when the good witch reveals that Dorothy’s ruby slippers have always given her the power to return whenever she wanted. A few clicks of the heal and our young heroine returns to Kansas to learn it was all just a dream… so fitting.”

What we see is our Reality, is actually our perception of our reality. It is often easier to see where we lack that where we are thriving. We judge our worse against someone else best not knowing their struggles or even seeing the complete picture.

The reality for me is I hit a bump in the road, the I AM I hear in my head often takes back over. I start listen to the voice I had heard growing up. That of not being wanted, not being worthy and on and on and on.  I stopped taking care of myself, I stopped the practices I had learn to create the life I wanted. I became the man behind the curtain. Pretending everything was still okay, while I was abusing myself physically and emotionally.

Each time I would return to the practices that where in love, light, possibility, and creation I was happy and once again making progress toward who I want to become. But each time a trial hit, I would start traditional counseling, which would help for a while, but then the fall seemed to be harder to overcome.

Therefore there is the I AM I perceive, the I AM I hear in my head, the I AM I am currently being, the I AM I want to be, and the I AM others perceive me to be. So therefore, I AM the Wizard of Oz or the man behind the curtain. I am in a constant battle with who I AM. I choose to continue to learn, discover, and become the I AM I desire to be.

I have had many resources that have assisted me in my discovery of the I AM. I know that it is a continual process of learning, discovery, and growth. I also think that understanding our own I AM this may be one of the greatest understanding we can seek in this life.

I have discovered that prayer, mediation, affirmations, and energy work are key to me healing and self-discovery. But I know that each of us needs to find our own path to health, healing, and self-discovery. I am grateful for my journey and the different friends, classes, and books that have taught me along the way.

Today and hopefully everyday moving forward I will choose to do the work, continue to discover, grow and declare, “I AM growth, wisdom, love, light, and joy. I AM the possibility of all that has been, is, and is to come.”

Our mind and bodies are incredibly powerful, and we each have our own journey to self discovery and knowledge. My you find that path that best supports you in discovering your I AM!

Cinnamon Bark

I love Cinnamon Bark! The smell reminds of Baking with my Mom & Grandma, so I love to cook with it. Checkout doTerra’s Mini Cinnamon Rolls a try.

I also like adding to my drinks. I add a drop to my water when I am working out. 1-2 drops in my Choffy or in my Wild Orange Tea.

Cinnamon Cocoa

Due to its high content of cinnamaldehyde, Cinnamon should be diluted with doTERRA Fractionated Coconut Oil when applied to the skin and only one to two drops are needed for internal benefits.* Cinnamon supports healthy metabolic function and helps maintain a healthy immune system, especially when seasonal threats are high.* Cinnamon is frequently used in mouth rinses and gums.* Cinnamon has a long history of culinary uses, adding spice to desserts, entrees, and hot drinks.

Kindness & Beyond

On September 4th doTerra along with Leon Legothetis, the Kindness Guy, invited its Wellness Advocates and customers to join the 15 Day Kindness Challenge. I took on the challenge and I received mixed results.

It was so amazing to be a doTerra Convention where the Kindness was contagious. I witness so many people opening doors, zipping up open backpacks, sharing, and more. My doTerra Team had kindness kits for those in need that had bottled water, food, and hardtack candy. It was awesome to see the reactions as we handed them out as we walked down the street.

During doTerra Together Convention Leon was one of the Keynote Speakers. I was inspired. He said, “Make people feel seen.” So I want you to know:

I See You

He told us to share our pain because we are all human. Knowing that there are others who have or are going through what you are going through is often beneficial. I know I have found strength from other Domestic Violence Warriors. Each of our experiences are different, but I have learned something valuable from each one.

My favorite quote from Leon was, “True Wealth is not in your wallet, it is in your heart.” Kindness is FREE. Kindness is as simple as a smile, a complement, a hug, etc. When you are kind it everyone wins. You don’t know who else it will effect, but it changes lives.

He also talked about being kind and gentle to ourselves. As he was talking recognized areas in my life that I can improve.

I loved when he said we could ask his ex-girls friends and then went on to say, “I may not always be nice, but I can do my best to be kind.” That is profound to me.  It brings to mind forgiveness. Being kind to ourselves and others requires forgiveness when we are not nice.

I look forward to daily finding new ways to be kind. I also look forward to hearing stories from others.
