Now Is Our Time

There are so many people out there seemingly living such beautiful lives… traveling to exotic places, climbing El Capitan, performing on stage, succeeding wildly at a business venture… doing things that causes the world to take notice and give applause. Good for them!
😯
And then there’s the rest of us. With dishes in the sink, laundry to fold, too many things on the calendar, none of which are more exciting than a dentist appointment… is it just me?
🤔
Life is made up of all the little moments in between the laundry folding and the trips to the dentist. It’s the conversations in the car and tucking my kids in to a freshly made bed. It’s taking the dog for a walk, pouring a cup of coffee, sitting down to a meal together… and of course, doing the dishes.

😬
There are imperfections, hardships, struggles. Something breaks, money is tight, someone’s health is failing. Marriages unravel, children disobey, jobs come to an end… this is life. And it’s not always pretty
🤕
But in between the big moments of chaos are always little moments of peace- something to laugh about, something beautiful to see, a pause, a stillness. And THOSE are the moments that define the times, if we can see them. .🤔
For me, the past three years have been full of the “asphalt and concrete of life”- both literally and figuratively- it hasn’t been very pretty. But always there were cracks in the sidewalk where something small and beautiful has grown.
🌱
If you are going through a less than beautiful patch of life right now, if you feel like there’s nothing but asphalt as far as you can see, remember, It only takes a decade for a forest to reclaim a city.
🌳
So grab your Acceptance, Gathering or Gratitude oil, and let the uplifting aroma wash over you. Breathe deeply and feel your frustration melt away.  There may have been beautiful times behind you, and there will certainly be more beautiful times ahead, but where you are Right Now-

THIS time is yours.

What’s Your Art?

50022706_2314084102156944_5381039381448259778_n(1)

Photography is the art of observation. It has little to do with the things we see and everything to do with the way we see them!
📷
I believe God made every single person to be deeply creative. THAT MEANS YOU!!! If He is the great Creator of the universe, and we are made in His image, then what does that make us?

🤔
You, my friend, are a creator. Perhaps photography isn’t your gig. But maybe you can whip up a gourmet meal, crochet quilts, or tell a story that moves people to tears. Maybe you can sing, or dance, or motivate others to action. Maybe you are a teacher, a scientist, a thinker, a communicator… a business builder… it’s not about the things you see, but HOW you see them

🔭👓
Your perspective IS your gift! You see the world in a way that others don’t! Whether it’s through the microscope, or a telescope, a piano or a typewriter… YOU have something beautiful and unique to share!
💁🏻‍♀️
Stop believing that your perspective isn’t interesting. Stop comparing your form of creativity to others.

Stop 👏putting👏 yourself 👏down!

Grab yourself some Envision essential oil, or Believe, or Awaken… take a deeeeeeeeeeeep inhale from the bottle, close your eyes and let your mind wander to those creative endeavors in your life. Inhale again. Think about yourself as a creator. Inhale again. Picture your art form, your gifts, your talents.

💋I want to hear from every person who reads this post- whether you are an accountant or a trapeze artist- how are you creative??? Tell me in the comments below!

Soooooo, what’s your Art? You can do this! 💕
Ready, set, go!

Bottled Up Inside

img_9213

Ever have waves of emotions as deep as the sea? Do you bottle things up or do you express your feelings and move on? I tend to be more of a bottler. I stuff and stuff until the bottle’s full and then I burst. .
😭
So this year is about learning the art of emotional RELEASE. Letting GO. Staying on top of the waves and not getting dragged under. I’m so blessed to have these aromatic oils to help me navigate my limbic system. .
🌊
There’s SCIENCE behind this stuff, guys, I’m not just making it up. Did you know that when we inhale aromatic oil molecules, the very first part of our brain that illuminates is our EMOTIONAL center??? It’s true!
🧠
Scientists are continually making new discoveries about the chemistry of emotions. Did you catch that? Our emotions are CHEMICALS that cause a physical reaction in our body! Essential oils work in our brain to create “happy” chemicals that produce positive physical reactions
👏
So what are you waiting for? Years of therapy, counseling, meditation, and other self-help methods have not achieved nearly the breakthroughs that have been seen in aromatherapy. PTSD, addictions, abuse survivors… aromatherapy is fast becoming the darling of the counseling professions. Why? BECAUSE IT WORKS
🤓
But don’t take my word for it. Try it for yourself!
