Have you ever had that moment…?

Sometimes I wonder, can there ever be real serenity in our lives? Or do we go about our lives searching for that “sense” of serenity. That ‘state of calmness and tranquility, free from stress’ that seems to only exist when we are lost in a good book or maybe during those five minutes while we drink our coffee in the morning and our mind just drifts.

In all honesty, after the coffee and the day starts do you get the feeling back? Sometimes days can pass between those moments and what are you left with? ..The opposite of serenity; stress, anxiety, even depression, exhaustion, the list could go on: Despair. The danger is that if we don’t stop this cycle it’ll just continue to bring us down. It starts slowly, one day you just don’t feel like getting out of bed….but you do anyway. The next day, you don’t. Things start to overwhelm you, little things…things that normally wouldn’t bother you at all.

The people that used to make you laugh, now just make you think even more of how much you don’t laugh. The things that you used to do to stay active; exercise, sports, games….they’re all gone.

Now, there comes a point where you just have to snap out of it!! Break the cycle, get back to yourself. That’s where the sad part comes in…..because in most cases that ambition only lasts a few days or a week perhaps and the depths of despair draw you back into their grasps.

Do you see the importance of this topic?  Aside from a healthy spiritual routine, it is important to consider the physical and emotional aspects of our lives that contribute to our state of mind.  What things do you do on a daily basis that helps you keep your center?

Feel free to share your thoughts!  We are in a society where sharing perspectives and thoughts has become more commonplace and yearned for. Connection.  However if left unchecked it this itself and become a factor that contributes to either our inner peace or lack thereof.

Until next time…

 

Do you feel in control?

Over the course of time, you will come to see that many of the events of your life are related in some way or another. The most fundamental connection is your spirit. No, I do not refer to your spirit in a spiritual sense but rather your inner spirit or power. The one that you control, direct, empower and impact upon your universe. Did you know that you, and you alone, are the control behind this force ?

I know you are now probably thinking, oh boy, here they go again: “Think your way through it!” …. “You hold your own destiny” …. “blah,blah, blah” Well, all of those schools of thought have a basis in the truth. An example: Studies have found that our bodies respond greatly to our frame of mind. In fact when we are excited about a future event, or anticipating something to happen, the increased adrenaline stimulates the immune system and raises our corporal defenses. It would therefore be reasonable to consider that our mind is more powerful than perhaps we give it credit for.

Here’s a question for you: If you knew you had an invisible ability to influence the lives and feelings of others for their betterment, what would you do? Remarkably with one look, one comment, or even with a single thought you could change the course of someones life. This is the why of this topic. Why should we even spend time on this idea?   Because, this force is very important and it can yield so much power. However, in order to harness this inner strength, you must first learn to control it on yourself.a96192d3214aa421016bf8aebe7ee358

Challenge yourself each day to something better than the day before. This begins the training process that allows you to develop this incredible gift. You will find that, as the days and weeks come to pass, your life and experiences will start to change. You will see how your universe begins to network with new people, and environments. Your spirit will absorb new power, and your power will attain new levels.

Do not let the power be used for the wrong purpose. Keep track of your progress, take note of changes whether they be good or bad. This will allow you to see where you need to strengthen or redirect your thoughts and energy.

Balance in work and play: Is a home business for me?

If you’re reading this page, you and I have something in common.  Working for yourself and out of your own home is a unique and incredible opportunity.  Many search for different ideas for businesses and most for different reasons.  Why does a home based business interest you?    Personally, I have seen the way it simply offers more freedom to choose your path instead of working for someone else’s plan.   I hope you are able to see your dream come true.   Below are the details on how this (and the one I like) home based business works.

When you are finished watching the video feel free to let me know your thoughts.  If you’re ready to get started go here to start working together toward your freedom.

What are essential oils?

Essential oils have also been used for thousands of years for cosmetic purposes, as well as for their spiritually and emotionally uplifting properties. Young Living has always been at the forefront of bringing this ancient tradition to modern users, introducing millions to a total mind/body wellness they may never have dreamed possible.

Primarily extracted through careful steam distillation but also through cold pressing, the purest essential oils are far more powerful than the botanicals from which they were extracted. Any time you hold a bottle of our powerful essential oils, you are holding nature’s pure essence.

How To Use Essential Oils

Any time you hold a bottle of our powerful essential oils, you are holding the pure essence of health-promoting botanicals that can be diffused, inhaled, applied topically, incorporated into massage, or taken internally to:

Inspire a positive emotional state

Love the way the spritz of fragrance from a fresh orange peel can brighten your day? Each essential oil’s complex, pleasant, and unique scent activates the limbic system—the brain’s center of emotion and memory—differently. Essential oils can be your key to a more fulfilling and balanced emotional life.

To help you rediscover peace, balance, and joy, use these essential oils and blends for diffusion, soothing baths, massage, inhalation, or topical application:

Joy™
Lavender
Orange
Peace & Calming™
Peppermint
Jasmine

 

Modern lifestyles don’t always create optimal conditions for physical wellness. Poor diet, lack of exercise, and an overabundance of environmental toxins can leave the body unbalanced and diminish energy levels. From cleansing and weight management to supporting every system of the body, essential oils and essential oil-infused supplements can provide the targeted solutions you need to restore balance and feel your best.

Feel vital every day with the whole food-based nutrients, powerful antioxidants, and pure essential oils found in these products:

NingXia Red™

OmegaGize3™

Life 5™

Slique™ Tea

Longevity™

Purify your home

Harsh chemical formulas aren’t your only home cleansing option. Enjoy peace of mind without compromise when you polish countertops, clean sticky messes, and cleanse dirty surfaces with the gentle but effective power of essential oils and our Thieves® line of products.

Refine your skin

Purge chemicals from your beauty routine and rediscover your natural glow. An ancient skin care secret, essential oils can help promote a clear-looking complexion, soften the appearance of signs of aging, and nurture healthy-looking hair. Using only natural ingredients, these advanced skin and hair care solutions make it easy to enjoy the beautiful benefits of essential oils every day.

Create deep spiritual awareness

Incense and essential oils from plants have always played an important part in religious and spiritual ceremonies, helping participants to transcend the trivial and connect with something larger than themselves. Research shows that the pure constituents in these oils stimulate olfactory receptors and activate regions in the brain’s limbic system associated with memory, emotion, and state of mind. To enhance your spiritual practice, dilute and apply meditative, empowering essential oils directly to wrists, feet, and behind the ears, or diffuse in a quiet space. Popular essential oils and blends for spiritual focus include:

Sacred Frankincense

White Angelica™

Egyptian Gold™

Inspiration™

The Gift™

Hopefully this information helps get to know a little of the history and background of essential oils.  If you’re curious about how to get your oils and start benefiting from them check out this brief video.

Essential Oils: Why I’ve used Young Living?

There are a number of different sources and ways to purchase Essential Oils.  Just like any product or service we can choose where to get them.  However, as you and I know, where you purchase your food and products from can greatly affect their quality.  I personally like Young Living as a source for Essential Oils for a couple of reasons:

I’ve spent more than two years in Guayaquil, Ecuador (which in itself is a reason…not a lot of Oil providers here) – but it’s also one of the many locations where Young Living cultivates, grows, and produces the plants and oils they use around the world.  It’s an incredible operation and I encourage you to come and visit it someday, or a facility near you.

As you explore my site you will see information regarding their high quality standards and meticulous processes to ensure we use the purest quality of oils.  Take a look at this video for a little peek at who Young Living is:

When will it start?

As you read this, try not to think of everyone else who should be reading this series. Rather, try to think: how can I improve myself? How can I harness the power within me?? Much of what we’ve seen and heard influences the way we perceive our future. This is not always an issue unless the things we’ve seen and heard don’t allow us to keep the right frame of mind. You see, everything you surround yourself with will define who you are and who you’ll become.

There is no special formula that you can follow that will “magically” change your life. There is, however, a series of steps you can take to perpetuate these changes in a systematic fashion. We discussed “where it comes from” and found that it comes from with in. But that energy and power, while it comes from within, is affected by everything in comes in contact with.

It reminds a lot of tofu. Have you ever tasted tofu?? By itself it’s pretty bland, no real taste. However, start adding seasoning, other peppers and ingredients what happens. The inert taste coming from within the tofu changes because of everything it comes in contact with. It’s taste transforms based on that which it absorbs. Pretty interesting huh?

That’s exactly how the power from within us works. Now, you’ve probably realized that this power can effectively be great and incredible, a positive force that helps others as much as it helps you. Or it can be a negative force that complicates your life and discourages you and those around you. Since you have the power, which would you choose? You see once you decide, that is when it begins.
