Citrus Twist

I love doTERRA and all of their promotions. I especially love this blend. It has some of my favorites in it. I hope you enjoy diffusing this essential oil blend as much as I do. 

Citrus Essential Oils are great for uplifting any room.




Meet the new Citrus Bliss®—Citrus Twist. This spicy-sweet diffuser blend is a new twist on citrus. If you’re looking for refreshing remix to your diffusing routine, look no further than Citrus Twist.
This is a limited-time offer item unavailable for purchase except during applicable promotions.


Usage Tips:

  • Diffuse Citrus Twist to bring a bit of warm sunshine into any room.
  • For an uplifting morning atmosphere, diffuse Citrus Twist in your kitchen.
  • Citrus Twist is the perfect blend to diffuse during the change of seasons and other transitions.

What Is Citrus Twist Oil Good For? 

Specifically formulated for diffusion, Citrus Twist actually smells different straight from the bottle than it does from the diffuser. When you open a bottle of Citrus Twist and inhale the aroma, it is distinctly spicy. When diffused, however, Wild Orange takes the stage. The scent of Citrus Twist is bright and sunny with a warm foundation of Ginger. 
The uplifting scent of citrus combined with the lower, grounding notes of Ginger make Citrus Twist the perfect blend to diffuse during periods of transition or the change of seasons to refresh your enviornment. If you love citrus but are looking for a blend that’s a little different than your usual diffuser go-to, Citrus Twist is perfect for you. 

What Is in Citrus Twist Blend? 

Citrus Twist is a blend of Wild Orange, Lemongrass, Litsea, and Ginger essential oils and Ginger CO2 extract. 
One of the most delicious, juicy-smelling citrus oils, Wild Orange is a fan favorite. When this blend is diffused, Wild Orange comes through strong and sweet. 
Because of its aroma, Lemongrass is named after lemon, but it actually isn’t a citrus oil at all. The oil comes the leaves and stem of a tropical grass plant. It has an herbal, lemony scent. 
Like Lemongrass, Litsea smells similar to lemons; however, it is actually a shrub-like evergreen tree. The essential oil comes from the fruit of the plant. 
Ginger brings a soft, spicy tone to Citrus Twist. It adds warmth to the blend without hampering the refreshing, cheery notes of citrus. 
As a CO2 extract, Ginger Extract brings a slightly different quality to the blend than Ginger essential oil. CO2 extract will preserve some different constituents than true, distilled essential oil, which results in unique benefits and variation in the aroma.
Diffusing is one of the best ways to experience essential oils. This blend has a depth and complexity that not every diffuser blend can claim. Rejuvenate your routine with a citrus blend that's less traditional, but no less enticing.

Perserverence - You got this!



We can preserver through these changes, with a positive attitude, ambition, action, love! It is not easy, and everyone has good days and bad days. Focus on the good, be grateful. I tell my kids, if you are not feeling good, focus on three things you are grateful for and fill someone’s bucket (find someone who is feeling worse, a simple act of kindness fills there bucket which will fill yours, it is a win win.) 

During this pandemic, you can write a letter, pick up the phone and call, drop a little gift off, drop off a meal, groceries, a simple act of kindness and there are a lot of people who need it. If you need help, food, shelter. Please reach out and ask for help. I know how hard it is, I have been there, but you are not alone and there is help out there and no reason for you to be suffering. You will feel better I promise. At dinner we go around the table and share every night what we are grateful for and our big win for the day and what we could have done better.

There are people struggling and have it worse, someone always has it worse than you do. Send them love and prayers. I promise, God has your back, he has all our backs. We will make it through this, you will make it through this. 

We will learn the lesson, grow from it and everything will be so much better. Be patient, find peace with all of it and persevere. I learned a formula in one of my personal development seminars, E+R=O. You have an event (Covid-19) plus how you react, will determine your outcome. Think about this and remember it. We all want a good outcome. We all want to be safe, and we need to keep others safe. This is not a time to be impatient or selfish. This is time to be smart, kind and giving to others.

The other day a friend mentioned to me that she knew someone in the Holocaust, they were in hiding for two years, no store, no outside. Her friend said we were lucky. If you are feeling down, angry and frustrated with it all, think of how lucky you are, count your blessing and find the good with all this happening. Focus on love over fear. Find Peace with it all, you deserve that. Spread positivity, kindness and help others.

There are a lot of different perspectives, emotions, loss, anger, aggression, confusion, theft and violence. People are acting different, not knowing how to act or react. Everyone has unknown stress, maybe for the first time or adding to additional stress. So much unknown, how do we trust, how do we have faith, how do we keep positive. I have lived through worse, a lot of us have, and a lot of us have not. Some are scared and some aren’t, knowing we will be okay and others are so scared they can’t think straight.

We are all in this together. I have my bad days, we have been traumatized, we are in a crisis and a lot of people are still in shock, adapting to it all. I was having a rough day the other day and a friend told me to be patient and be kind to myself. Be kind to yourself, remember to take time for yourself, meditate, take a bath, take a walk if you can. Breathe, we are going to preserver and look back at it all and count our blessings, we will have a smile on our faces for all we learned in the process, the world is healing, we are healing, there is only good to come out of this. 

Here are some tools to help support you emotionally.

Please enjoy this week’s Affirmation, Gemstone, Essential Oil, Angel Card Reading, and Motivating  Meditation with the sound of Tibetan Singing Bowls.

Affirmation

“As I surrender to the Universe, 
the steps I need to take to move forward become crystal clear”


Gemstone



Labradorite (Stone of Serendipity and Magic)
Colour: Iridescent blue, greyish to black, yellow
Chakra: 
Third Eye
Origin: 
Russia, Canada, Scandinavia, Italy

Sometimes the biggest challenge when changing your life is other people’s reactions. Change can intimidate or unnerve those close to us, so their advice may be unhelpful. Labradorite encourages you to trust your own judgment and wisdom.
By listening to yourself, you will gain a better understanding of what is right for you. You’ll gain a sense of adventure and self-empowerment, as well as become less fearful of reaching for your dreams.
Labradorite is also known for its protective powers. It provides a shield around you that will prevent unwanted negative energies, such as jealousy, and other people’s opinions from influencing you.
Essential Oil of the Week is

doTERRA Helicrysum
Helichrysum italicum is a small perennial herb with narrow, silver leaves and flowers that form a cluster of golden yellow, ball-shaped blossoms. The name “Helichrysum” is derived from the Greek “helios” meaning sun and “chrysos” meaning gold, referring to the color of the flowers. Helichrysum has been used in herbal health practices since ancient Greece and the oil is highly valued and sought after for its many health benefits.
Helichrysum is best known for its restorative properties to the skin. Also referred to as the Everlasting or Immortal Flower, Helichrysum is used in anti-aging products for its rejuvenating benefits to the skin. Helichrysum can help reduce the appearance of blemishes, and it promotes a glowing, youthful complexion.
Emotions addressed are emotional pain, anguished, traumatized, hopeless, Despairing, Wounded, Healing, Courageous, Hopeful, Transforming.
For emotional pain, Helichrysum is an amazing healer of pain. It aids the walking wounded – those with a history of difficult life circumstances, trauma, self-destruction, loss or abuse. Helichrysum inbuses joy, fervor, and hope for living. Helichrysum takes hurt souls by the hand guiding them through life’s difficulties. Following this spiritual healing and transformation, Helichrysum can teach individuals to have gratitude for their trails.
Diffuse or breath in, apply over heart or wherever pain is experienced.

Angel Card Reading

I love doing Angel Card Readings. This week I used my Energy Oracle cards. I had four cards pop out and what a great card reading.


Well these cards came jumping out. I love this card reading. 
These cards all come with an affirmation at the end. 

Card 1 
Angels of love - Tender Connections
When we feel so alone, we need to remember that we are not alone and that we are loved. We are protected. This card brings us a beautiful angel with roses, she holds a roase quartz heart, radiating tender and loving vibrations, bringing you compassion and affection. If you are looking for new love, this angel brig a message of its upcoming approach. If you are wanting amore intimate connection with someone already in your life, she is here to say that far greater tenderness is available to you. Remember that your first intention for tenderness is for self. This will influence the energetic potential of these eventsin a significant way. The Angel of love is smiling on you and gorging connections in the entergetic tealm. 

Affirmation - I love and value myself withiout limitation or condition. Tender loving treatment comes to me in wonderful and unexpected ways.

Card 2
Envy - Lack, Disatisfaction
The lady in this card has value in her life already. Instead of feeling happy and fullfilled, her desire for more only causes a deep sense of lack and disatsisfaction and that energy shows in her dress. This card is telling you to let go of the jealousy and acknowledge the blessings you already have. When you envy others it attracks more to them, not you. Notice all that you have and thank the Universe for it. Now is the time to move from lack to value. Count your blessings and be grateful for what you have. 

Affirmation - I let go of lack, I look at the blessings in my life with Joy and Satisfaction. 

Card 3 
Journey - Movement, Relocation, Travel
All of life is a journey, and this card is telling you that you have some exciting and inspiring adventures ahead. 

Affirmation - I am attracting wonderful new adventures to me. My life is a blessing, taking me new places, inside and out. 

Card 4
Waling Away - Letting Go, Moving On
This card shows someone walking away from an existing situation, she is closing the gate behind her and walking away into a misty, unknown future. It could be time for you to make a similar decision. You have an important New begininning at hand. It is time to let go of an old habit, emotional pattern or false belief. You have the power to release it. You have the readiness and resources to walk away from the old and move forward now. 

Affirmation - It is safe and comfortable for me to move on. I consider all my options and then take acton on my own behalf. 

What a great reading, be tender with yourself, you are loved. Focus on your blessings, someone always has it worse than you. Remember life is a journey, exciting things ahead, Let go of the past and move on to the New normal, you have the opportunity to create your new normal. Enjoy and manifest what you want. Use the affirmations that resignate with you.

May Scorpio Super Flower Full Moon 2020 & Ritual

May’s full Moon rises on Thursday, May 7! This full Moon will be the last of the three supermoons to occur this year, “The Full Flower Moon.”


Photo taken by Greg Likins
PHoto by Greg Likins
On May 7, the third and final supermoon. It's a Super Flower Moon, occurring in Scorpio. That means it will bring up some strong feelings. A supermoon is a full moon that is especially big and bright, because it occurs when the moon is at its closest point to the Earth. That proximity also means their effects are even more powerful than a regular full moon

This full moon is a sweet full moon  that will remind us to find gratitude and beauty. Your spiritual and intuition senses may be heightened through this time. Emotions will be intense, as the Moon, which represents our feelings in astrology, is hanging out close to the Earth. 
May is a big month, celestially. Early next week, the first of three major retrogrades will kick off. But first, on May 7, the third and final supermoon of the entire year will grace the sky — and it's going to be major.

This supermoon is also called a Flower Moon because it coincides with the blooming of spring flowers. The name sounds pretty — but it's also apt, since this Super Flower Moon occurs in Scorpio, a sign associated with growth and transformation. Scorpio is an evolutionary sign, which makes this a great time to release past hurts and make amends with others.

It may be time to forgive an old friend or you can spend time healing internal wounds. The Super Flower Moon in Scorpio provides the right energy for you to finally let go of the pain.  You will come out of the experience feeling lighter and invigorated.

Bringing old and buried emotional baggage to the surface," says Narayana Montúfar, senior astrologer for Astrology.com and Horoscope.com. "Our feelings will be front and center, and our interactions will show exactly how we feel even if we are not able to express ourselves clearly."

This final supermoon of 2020 teaches us it is that expressing our feelings is important — even if they feel small compared to what is going on in the world. With this lunar event behind us, we can enter the rest of the year feeling lighter, clearer, and ready to start fresh.

It is time to face your feelings, Let Go and Forgive.
Here is a Ritual for the Flower Full Moon. Done between May 7 and May 20th. Enjoy!

Things you will need,
  • Smudging Stick of Choice, Palo Santo, white sage or smudging tool of choice
  • Small Candle 
  • Lighter or matches
  • Bowl or plate
  • Cup of Ice
  • Pen and paper
  • Pinch of salt
  • Gemstone - recommended Rose Quartz or Amethyst
  • Essential Oils - Renewing Blend, Copaiba, Frankincense, Rose, or whatever resonates with you.
  • Tibetan Bowl Meditation (to use whenever you need)


What you are going to do...

1.  Set your gemstone in front of you. Use your smudging tool of choice. Cleanse your aura and area and reciting the following 

"I radiate peace, love, and joy. I cleanse myself with loving energy. I am cleansed and recharged"

2. Take your Essential Oil of choice and place a few drops on your hands, rub together and inhale three times and recite the following.

"I surround this space with light and loving energy. Only love may enter. This space is cleansed."

3. Take a Pen and Paper and write whatever comes to mind. What you want to release, forgive, etc. When you are done fold up the paper and place in the bowl. Recite the following. 

"I ask the Spirit of water to help me release and let go of what no longer serves me, what has never served me and all that is not love."

4. Take your cup of ice and pour over your paper in the bowl and recite
" I charge this ice with the power of love, gratitude and healing. As this ice melts, I ask whatever is no longer needed for my highest good to gently and softly melt away. Thank you, Thank you, Thank you.

5. Now place your candle in the bowl with the ice and light it. Sit in silence for 20-30 breathes. Watching the candle flame and the ice melt away slowly. 
Now take your salt and sprinkle it over the ice and recite the following. 

 " I am lighter and free, I trust myself. I trust all is well. I welcome love and peace. My heart is strong and full. Thank you, Thank you, Thank you.

6. Once the ice has melted, remove the paper, squeeze out the excess water and mush or tear up the paper. Discard in recycling. Make sure you put out your candle.

7. Put a few drops of essential oil on your gemstone and carry with you or place under your pillow until the next full moon. Use when meditating.

8. Meditate daily for at least 10 minutes. Below is a Tibetan Bowl Meditation for you to enjoy.

Peace



The past few weeks I have posted on Adapting, Perspective and Grounding, Selfcare, and Patience. Most of us are still on Stay at Home Orders. Some of us are following the orders and others are not. I just want to share for those of you staying home, THANK YOU! For those of you who are not, well we have different perspectives. This week’s focus is on Peace. We have been adapting, hearing others perspectives, made it through a full moon, taking care of ourselves, having patience with it all and now it time to find some Peace.

We have been home now for 7 weeks, it is tough, but there have been so many blessings. Things will not be the same and I pray that we can all find Peace through these times for all of us. I am a mom, with three teenagers, and a disabled husband. We are doing okay but it still takes a lot out of us in different ways then we are used too.

There are people struggling and have it worse, someone always has it worse than you do. Send them love and prayers. I promise, God has your back, he has all our backs. We will make it through this, you will make it through this. We will learn the lesson, grow from it and everything will be so much better.

The other day a friend mentioned to me that she knew someone in the Holocaust, they were in hiding for two years, no store, no outside. Her friend said we were lucky. If you are feeling down, angry and frustrated with it all, think of how lucky you are, count your blessing and find the good with all this happening. Focus on love over fear. Find Peace with it all, you deserve that. Spread positivity, kindness and help others. I hope you find Peace and spread it with others. 

Please enjoy these tools, this week’s Affirmation, Gemstone, Essential Oil, Angel Card Reading, and Relaxing Meditation with the sound of Tibetan Singing Bowls.

Affirmation

“I radiate peace and love out to others and it comes back to me multiplied. I trust in the process of life.”
