Getting Motivated

It has been a while since I have written, life happens and I was spending time and taking care of my mother the last stages of her life, My sweet mother passed away in May 2019. The things that happen in life and so many emotions and so much going on. It has been hard for me to get back into writing. I love to write and thought how can I transition back into it. It has been a struggle. 

 Then I remembered to use my essential oils and I got my motivate blend out and diffused it and put the roll on next to my computer and started using it. When I started using the Motivate blend, I laughed at myself. You are being silly, just sit down and write. The Motivate Blend was the push that I needed.

Quality Matters
Something unique to doTERRA essential oil blends is their composition. All essential oils blends from doTERRA are made up of CPTG Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade® essential oils. When oils are classified as CPTG®, they have passed the CPTG protocol, which involves a series of rigorous tests that assess the purity, potency, and quality of each batch of essential oils. When you purchase a blend from doTERRA, you can be confident knowing that the essential oil products you receive are pure and potent, and ready to meet your needs.

The purity and potency of an essential oil is crucial to its effectivity. These qualities are so critical because when essential oils are filled with filler substances and impurities, as many oils on the market are, their quality and effectivity are diminished. However, when oils are pure and potent, they are able to work properly and effectively to enhance well-being. 
I hope you enjoy this blend as much as I do.

Calming and Centering October Full Moon Ritual

Photo Taken By Kent Chambers
This ritual can be done anytime between October 24th and November 4, 2018

Calming and Centering Ritual - October Full Moon Ritual

CALMING and CENTERING FULL MOON Ritual. The Full Moon in October is the the Taurus Full Moon which falls on October 24th, this full moon is going to help us to find our strength. This is the strength that comes when we align with our center and remain calm and open, even in situations that are volatile or difficult.
This Full Moon is not necessarily going to conjure up challenges for you, but it may highlight and expose your triggers and you could find yourself feeling off balance or out of sorts.
As an Earth sign, Taurus energy wants us to be grounded and stable, it wants us to be strong so we can build and create towers as tall and as magnificent as the sky. Essential oils for Strength are Frankincense, Cedarwood and Rose.
Doing this ritual is going to get those energies flowing of the Taurus Full Moon. It is also going to guide you to find your calm and align with your center with yourself. 

Full Moon Ritual for Calming and Centering

This ritual is best done right after a shower or a bath, it can be done morning or night. The energies are strongest for this ritual from October 21- November 4, 2018, however you can do it anytime that feels right for you. 
You will need:
·         Smudging Tool of choice
·         One Candle
·         Handful of Leaves or flowers, dried or live
·         1 Piece of Paper and a Pen
·         Essential Oils

1. Begin by smudging your aura and surroundings using the mantras below. As you smudge your aura recite the following-

“I am cleansing myself light and free. I am cleansing myself so I can be me. I am cleansing away the struggles of my past, I am cleansing and opening my heart. My heart is now open and I am aligned. My heart is now open and I am aligned.”
As you smudge your surroundings recite the following-

“I cleanse this space with light and loving energy. Only positive energy may enter this space. I cleanse this space with light and loving energy. It is safe for me to dwell here, it is safe for me to call this space home. My home is cleansed and I am renewed. My home is cleansed and I am renewed.”

2. Next, start by putting a few drops of essential oil of choice in your diffuser. . I really like earthy oils for this ritual, like Frankincense, Sandalwood, Vetiver, Cedarwood, Arborvitae, Douglas Fir, Siberian Fir, Cypress.  But you can use whatever you have on hand. Light your candle and place it on the floor or on a table in front of you.

3. Take your piece of paper and draw either a triangle, circle or heart on it. Choose whichever symbol speaks to you the most. To help you with this choice, triangles represent the mind, the body, and the spirit. Circles represent wholeness or completion, and hearts represent love. If you wish, you can also draw another symbol that has special meaning for you.

4. Place your candle on top of your symbol. Try to place the candle so it is in the middle of the symbol. Take your leaves or flowers, and place them around the paper so it looks pretty. (Part of ritual work is the beauty of it too!)

5. Take a deep breath to settle yourself. If you are sitting at a table, be sure that your feet are flat on the floor. If you are on the floor, try to sit up cross-legged so you feel rooted and connected to the ground.

6. Place your hands over your heart center. You can also place them over your belly. Again, just use your instincts as to where you are going to place them. Close your eyes and take 10 deep breaths here.
7. Now take one of the flowers/leaves in your left hand with palm facing up. Look at the leaf/flower and repeat the following three times- 

“The energy of mother earth guides me as to what I need to release.”

8. Now take your hands in prayer position so the leaf/flower is wedged between both hands. Close your eyes and breath deeply here. Repeat to yourself the mantra again as best as you can remember.

9. Still holding your leaf/flower, stand up and shake out your body. As you shake imagine you are releasing and letting go of any anxiety, any frustrations, any pains, any hurts. Just stand up and shake it all out. Keep shaking and moving your body until you feel released and cleansed. Trust that mother earth is helping you to release whatever it is that needs to get out of your body.

10. Sit back down. Take your leaf/flower that’s in your hand and exhale into it. Imagine exhaling the last of any anxieties, frustrations or hurts. Just blow it all out into the leaf/flower- it can handle it!

11. Place that leaf/flower off to the side and pick up another one. Hold it in your right hand this time with palm facing up. Look at the leaf/flower and repeat the following three times-

“The energy of mother earth supports and nourishes my soul.”

12. Once again, bring your hands to prayer position. Close your eyes and take 9 deep breaths. 9 is the number of completion. On your 10th inhale open your eyes, look at the leaf/flower in your hand and imagine inhaling beautiful, supportive energy from mother earth. Imagine that breath coming into your body and supporting and nourishing your soul.

13. Place that flower/leaf off to the side with the other one you just used.

14. Now gaze upon your candle, and with hands in prayer position repeat the following or feel free to say whatever you feel in the moment-

“I call on my highest spiritual guides and angels to help me stay in my center and stay in my calm. I know that mother earth is always guiding and protecting me and I thank her for that. I thank you all divine spirits who have joined me in this ritual today and have aided and supported me on my journey so far. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you.”

15. Blow out the candle. You can keep the symbol, candle and the leaves/flowers as decoration on your altar, or you can discard the flowers/leaves in the garden and recycle the paper- whatever you wish.

For the two leaves/flowers that you worked with during this ritual, be sure to bury them in the garden, drop them off the top off a hill/building into the wind, or toss them in the ocean as soon as possible after completing this ritual.

Enjoy the Full Moon!

August 2018 Full Moon Ritual ~ Pisces

This is my favorite time of the month. If you haven’t yet, start paying attention to the moon cycles. I have noticed I am sensitive before the full moon, and my husband is sensitive during the new moon. Pay attention and see how the moon cycles effect you. It is fun and you learn a lot about yourself and others. 

This is one of the best full moons this year! This full moon will help ease any intensities brought by the recent string of Eclipses and retrogrades. No matter what is going on, the energy of this Full Moon is going to ensure that we are safe and protected.

This full moon is here to shine the light on the darkness, it is here to illuminate our fears and insecurities, it is here to guide us and activate our feminine side and to remind us of our oneness.

Enjoy this calm and restorative energy of this full moon. The vibration makes it a perfect time for ritual work. It is time to dive into your spirituality and activate your intuition and creativity.
Enjoy the beautiful, gentle Pisces Full Moon-Here is a Ritual
Pisces Full Moon Bathing Ritual 
This ritual can is best done from August 26-September 2, 2018
This is a bathing ritual, if you don’t have a bath, simply combine the ingredients in a jug to pour on yourself in the shower

You will need:
·         Flower Petals (fresh or dried)
·         Sea Salt or Himalayan Salt 
·         Essential Oils – Lavender, Restful Blend, Invigorating Blend, Bergamot, ylang ylang, cedarwood, geranium, vetiver, rose, frankincense, sandalwood, clary sage, marjoram, grounding blend.
·         Your favorite crystal
·         Smudging tool of choice (eg. sage, palo santo) I love the Palo Santo Sticks
·         Candles (optional)
1.     Begin with smudging yourself and your surroundings. For more detailed information on how to do this read this. As you smudge recite the following mantra or write your own-
“Everything is as it needs to be for I am light and love. I am right where I need to be for I am light and love. As I accept, I cleanse, and as I cleanse, I am free. I am light and love.”

2.     Start running the bath water and take the salt in your hand. As you sprinkle the salt recite the following mantra or feel free to write your own-
“This salt cleanses and purifies me. It heals my wounds. It cleanses and releases anything that is no longer serving me.”

Next add the flower petals while reciting the following mantra-
“These flower petals add sweetness and love. I love myself and I am gentle with myself. I have come so far, and I am proud of myself for all that I have achieved.”

Last, add a few drops of essential oil while reciting the following mantra-
“This oil signifies that I am right where I need to be. I accept my life. I accept where I am and know that I have the strength and confidence to make changes. This oil will open me up to receiving guidance on the next steps I can take to make my life even better.”

Surround your bath with crystals or have them nearby, light some candles to create a calm and relaxed ambiance.
3. Imagine the salt, flowers, and essential oils working their magic and restoring your mind, body, and soul. Take some deep breaths, unwind, relax, let go, and trust.
4. Breathe deeply, place your hands over your heart, and keep repeating “thank you” to yourself. Do it at least 10 times. Thank yourself, your body, your mind, your spirit, your organs, your lungs, thank every inch of your beautiful self.

5. With eyes closed, try to still your mind. Try to release any thoughts. Try not to engage with any thoughts that come through. Keep your mind still and just listen. Focus on listening to the rise and fall of your breath.
If this is too hard to do or you find yourself getting distracted, focus instead on 10 things you feel grateful for in your life. Really feel into them and allow the emotions to course through your body.
6. When you are ready to get out of the bath, give thanks to yourself, to the bath water, to the Moon, and to the Universe.
7. Once out of the bath hold onto your crystal and rub it gently to get the energy flowing. Open the palm of your hand and blow onto the crystal. Imagine you are blowing all the beautiful energies you soaked up from your bath into the crystal.
8. Drain the bath water, discard the flower petals outside, and keep the crystal by your bedside as you sleep. The crystal will remain charged with the beautiful Full Moon energy until the next lunar cycle. Hold onto it and work with its energy whenever you need to feel calm or protected.
Enjoy this Full Moon!
