Balance and Grow your Life: Is it really possible?

If you ask the Oola Guru and Oola Seeker, they will say YES!

The Oola Guru (Troy Amdahl @oolaguru) and Oola Seeker (Dave Braun @oolaseeker) are two moving’ and shakin’ guys who created the Oola movement. They are helping people balance and grow in all areas of their life. When I first met them in 2014 I thought Is that even possible?

So Dave and Troy ask whether this statement fits your life right now: “Ooh la la … that’s what life feels like when you’re happy, growing, and looking forward to what the world has store for you.” (From the new Oola for Women book) If you’re laughing or crying hysterically because your first thought was oh heck no, keep reading because Oola will change your life for the better.

The Oola Life for me started with the first book Oola: Find Balance in an Unbalanced World which raised my awareness and provided practical steps on how to balance and grow 7 areas of life. I was anything but balanced at that point. The book is a roadmap to rediscovering you! It’s still a book that I go back to and look through all of my highlights and notes.

Then came the free online Oola test where you can see where you rate in these 7 areas of life: Faith, Family, Field, Finances, Fitness, Friends and Fun. It’s eye opening because you will see where you’re life is lacking, lopsided and loopy.

Check out my first test and how lopsided I was. And then the second photo with my results from today.  Much better, right?

My Oola chart on 4-6-15 (just after moving from Virginia to Michigan)
My Oola chart today (4-28-17)

Imagine these 7 areas of life are shaped like a tire. If the tire is lopsided it would be a bumpy ride. If it is deflated in all areas, you wouldn’t go anywhere. But when it’s equal on all 7 sides (balanced) and inflated (growing), you glide easily to your destination.

If you’re doing awesome in your Field (career) but lacking in friends or fun, you’re lopsided. If you’re rocking it on faith and family but financially broke, you’re lopsided. All 7 areas connect. When one struggles, others feel it and it’s a bumpy ride.

Next came the Oola collaboration with Young Living Essential Oils where you can use essentials oils specifically labeled to help you balance and grow those 7 areas of life. And you can enhance them with Oola Balance and Oola Grow oils. So do you need to balance field/work and grow fun? I can personally attest to the power and effectiveness of these oils. When I took my leap of faith in early 2015 and moved from Virginia back home to Michigan, it was Oola Faith, Oola Field, Oola Finance and Oola Grow that kept me steady and believing all would be well. And it was!

Me and the Oola bus in 2016!

Then came the Oola Tour where these 2 guys have been traveling the country in a VW Surf bus covered in stickers! These stickers are from people they have met along the way where each person writes down what they most to achieve and then stick it on the bus!

But now this movement just got even sweeter. Because on May 2nd, the Oola Seeker and Oola Guru have a new book being released. Ladies …. Get ready for Oola For Women!

So I want you to think about these 7 areas of your life: faith, family, field, finance, fitness, friends and fun. Are you balanced and growing all of them? Struggling to survive? Lopsided? If you’re not any of those, I want to meet up with you because you’re a Super  Hero!

So let’s get back to this new Oola for Women book being launched on May 2, 2017. I was selected to be one of the lucky ladies to read an advance copy of Oola for Women and I get the pure joy to share it with you and why you must get this book. I don’t want to give too much away but let me give you a small look into this book.

You need to get this book if any of these apply to you:

• If you feel like you’re spinning too many plates in the air and the plates are starting to wobble and even drop.

• If you feel that you are living your life for others (spouse, children (2-legged and 4-legged), parents, community) and that you have lost yourself in your own life.

• If you wake up in the morning exhausted, drag yourself through the day and then collapse at night just to do it all over again the next day.

• If you feel like you’re in survival mode and being asked what do you want to do with your life results in a blank stare because you lost the skill of how to dream.

• If you find yourself saying I have to (fill in the blank with a task) rather than I get to (fill in the blank with something that brings you joy).

• If you have a glimmer of a dream but those around you talk you out of it and don’t support you.

The Oola for Women book is packed with empowering and emotional stories from women just like you and me. Women who are doing too much and knew they were losing control of their life and identity until they decided to stop the rollercoaster.

Oola for Women addresses these 7 areas of life from the perspective of a woman. Because our fitness issues are not men’s fitness issues. Our friend issues are not men’s friend issues. Women are master multitaskers (which is not a good thing) and masters at putting others before ourselves. You get the gist?

But the book goes even further to help you identify and tackle 7 Oola Blockers that every woman, at one point, has directly faced. And to hop on 7 Oola Accelerators that will help your glimmer of a dream become a reality.

Sounds impossible, right? Get this book, read it from cover to cover, and you will end up knowing what you need to do to live your best life. Because if you’re not at your best, those around you will not get the best you. Helping yourself live the Oola Life is the best thing that you can do for yourself, your family, friends, co-workers and community.

Click here to get the book and after you read it, send me an email or post a comment here about your thoughts and next steps!

And if you want those luscious Oola oils, message me and I’ll show you how to get them.

I’m an Oola Woman and love it. I’d love it if you joined me in this Oola Life!

What’s going on with the Earth’s heartbeat?

The Schumann Resonance (vibration of the earth) historically has held at 7.83 Hz. And when our bodies are at that frequency, we feel our best.

Since 2014, there have been notable spikes and increases. In January 2017 for the first time in recorded history, it rose to 36 Hz and it held there for days. Click here to track it. Is this a natural process for the earth, or are humans creating the increase?

All life forms on Earth resonate with Schumann’s Resonance. When life forms are in sync with Schumann’s Resonance, they are the most balanced and well. Researchers have studied how human consciousness and intention can impact the earth’s magnetic field. Some researchers have found that the magnetic field is in tune with human beta and theta frequencies and be influenced by such. Spikes in the Schumann Resonance have been seen during times of extreme stress and anxiety. For example, the Schumann Resonance dropped right before the attacks on 9-11 and then rose immediately after. So we see this connection between humans and the earth being documented.

Throughout years of what I call “my energy education,” one of my teachers spoke of how beings on earth go through “DNA upgrades”. These upgrades happen in cycles (62 million year cycles). We are in the process of a cycle now. Scientists are watching for the Earth’s poles to slip, tracking solar flares and coronal mass ejections from the sun, all of which are impacting the inhabitants of Earth. This DNA upgrade happens during changes in the Earth resulting in extinctions and new species appearing. In essence, changes in the earth cause changes in us. And we can either go with the changes or feel the effects of resisting.

So what could be the cause of this? I could easily give you a bunch of scientific theories, but you can Google all of this. Instead, I find the energy and spiritual aspect of it all far more fascinating. Is the magnetic field of the earth weakening and causing this? Are we awakening to where our human blinders are coming off? Is the veil lifting and our intuition is opening? Are humans raising their vibration and the Earth is following suit? Or is the Earth rising and (some) life forms are following?

What do we typically feel with a spike in Schumann Resonance? We may feel that time is speeding up (or is the speeding up of time causing the spikes?). We feel more tired, rollercoaster emotions, depression, ungrounded, more aches and pains, sudden onset of diseases, sudden passing of beings. Some people are downright going crazy and others are following down the crazy path. These upgrades make us feel icky.

What do I personally believe about this? I believe that we are in a significant energy shift where it’s possibly the final battle between old and new energies. We left the Age of Pieces (age of war) and entered the Age of Aquarius (matriarchal peaceful energy) … the exact timing is unknown but it happened in recent years. The old is grasping to maintain control and the new is awakening and becoming more active. The more that new energy emerges, the more that old energy is bubbling up for one last hurrah. It’s like buried bodies reaching up through the ground for one last grasp at power (sorry to be so graphic). Isn’t that what we’re seeing not just in the U.S. as a result of our 2016 election and continuing exposure of corruption and wrongdoing, but also around the world? The new energy is a bright light shining on things that were previously underground and secret. Times are changing.

Humans are waking up. It seems clear that people are fed up with lies, corruption, wrongdoing, war, harm and negativity. People are speaking up, contacting their elected officials, protesting, getting active … and this is happening on both sides of the fence with each feeling equally correct. When I step back and look at current events from an energetic lens, it’s fascinating to watch it unfold. From a reality lens, it downright terrifying. But if you get sucked into the terror, the old energy becomes empowered.

So what can you do? I think the most important thing is to ride this along with the earth and don’t fight it. So it’s time to up your frequency, listen to and go with your intuition (even if it seems to push against mainstream, status quo, normal ways of life), and stay very true to yourself free from influence from anyone or anything that does not ring true with your higher self.

Here are my survive and thrive steps!

  • Anyone who believes that they can effectively survive and thrive on 6 hours or less of sleep is so tired that they can’t think straight. Get a straight 8 hours or so of sleep each night and let your mind and body rejuvenate. Take electronics (especially Wi-fi, phones, and anything with that blue flickering light) out of your bedroom because it messes with your brain waves and doesn’t allow you to sleep properly. Make your bedroom a sanctuary. Diffuse Lavender oil, put Frankincense on the bottom of your feet and Cedarwood on your forehead (my magic combination). If you’re wired and tired at bedtime, add some Idaho Balsam Fir over your adrenals (above your kidneys on your back). When you’re tired, stop working and rest (this is huge advice coming from a workaholic). If you’re constantly sick, rest! Be like my cats and rest.
  • For me that means significantly less time on social media and little or no national news. Social media is a window into those people who are losing their ever-loving mind. Unfollow or unfriend them to keep your feed clean. There seems to be far more negativity on Facebook and Twitter, whereas Instagram is full of happy photos! So if you need to choose, go with Instagram. When I am on social media I keep it positive, uplifting, solution driven with healing tools for people and animals, snapshots into my life, and loads of photos of cute animals and essential oils. Follow me on Instagram and let’s join the positivity revolution there!
  • Walk away from toxic people. Many people will not be able to handle the rising in Schumann Resonance. So if anyone brings you down, makes you angry, or gives you a negative feeling, walk away. Some people you don’t need to maintain a relationship with, but others you do (like family, bosses, coworkers). Until you can raise yourself up enough to handle the negative energy, limit your time around them.
  • Lots of pure water. Make sure your water is from a pure source and really check where it comes from. There are too many shenanigans going on right now when it comes to food/product/water/air/everything safety. So do your own research and empower yourself with knowledge!
  • Eat whole foods. Buy organic (which is more affordable than ever), eat fresh and raw foods, stop processed foods and chemical-filled drinks. Look at ingredients because there are toxins in almost everything and it’s legal. Also really think about the energy of where your food came from. I respect everyone’s dietary choices, but I see those who are making poor choices have poor energy and poor health. You are what you eat. So if you are eating meat from a factory farm, the terror and fright that the farm animals encounter energetically embeds into them and you are ingesting it. If the veggies and fruit are coming from countries where laborers are treated poorly, or where chemicals are used, that toxic energy is going into you. Start being very very picky about what goes into your body and know WHERE your food comes from because 90-95% of all cancers are environmental and lifestyle (not genetic).

  • Put your bare feet on the ground to sync with the rising Schumann Resonance. This is called Earthing and I blogged about it previously.
  • Get the toxins out of your body and home because they mess with your thinking and create havoc with your health. Click here to learn more. And here’s a webinar that I did on a non-toxic lifestyle that will change your life!
  • Purify the energy in your home:
    • Essential oils = make sure they are good ones, pure therapeutic grade oils that are safe for people, babies, pets and that can be used aromatically, topically and internally. Here’s what I use that the kitties and I swear by! Put oils in a cold diffuser and run it throughout the day. Aim for high frequency essential oils. Don’t know what the frequencies are? Join my oil group and let me teach you!
    • Crystals = the bigger the better. Get the crystals that you’re drawn to because that’s what you need. Go get the biggest one that you can afford and plop it in the middle of your house. If you can, do the same for your bedroom. Let it clean the energy of the air and up the vibe in your home.
  • Himalayan Salt Lamps = I have 2 of these on all the time. They are known for cleaning the air. Think of a time when you went swimming in the salty ocean, or when you soaked your body/feet in Epsom salt, or when you drank a salt-rimmed Margarita! You felt awesome, right? Salt is healing. If you have a Home Goods in your area, I have found that they often have salt lamps on sale at amazing prices.

  • Do something fun every day! In the final days of February, a friend gave me a daily Fun Challenge. Even though I love every aspect of my multi-careered work, I tend to work ALL THE TIME! Doing something completely non-work related every day for 8 days and solely for frivolous fun changed my energy very quickly. For the first time in 35+ years, I put on my Junior High School roller skates (yes, they still fit) and went rollerskating!!! I saw tangible results and got greater insight into my work and life. One tangible result was that I achieved the rank of Young Living Silver after 18 months of very slow progress (that is a leadership rank within Young Living). And while there were a variety of factors that contributed to this achievement, I know that the Fun Challenge was the only thing I did differently compared to previous months. Be fun, be happy!

Take these steps slowly but start integrating these into your life. I would love to hear other ideas that you are doing to keep well, sane and rise above the current energies. So please post a comment below!

Allie’s Favorite Things for 2017

This is my 5th year of sharing my Favorite Things! I love trying out  new products, programs, tools and techniques all year long to help us all live better  and well lives. And going through what I most loved is such a fun thing to do at the end of each year.

This year, I shortened my list from 31 to 12 items and posted them on my Facebook page for the Twelve Days of Christmas. All of my Favorite Things for 2017 are listed below! Please post a comment if you have tried one of these products and let me know how you like it!

Enjoy!

(P.S. Some of the links are affiliate links but rest assured that I would never ever recommend something without trying it personally, loving it and using it consistently)!


Allie’s Favorite Things #1: Young Living Gratitude essential oil

Gratitude has a frequency to it. When you get into that frequency, you see the best in everything and may find that the best comes back you. This is a beautiful blend of Frankincense, Myrrh, Ylang Ylang, Bergamot and many other oils. This is one oil that I topically apply every morning. Because when you go through your day with Gratitude, you find even more to be grateful for.


Allie’s Favorite Things #2: The Miracle Morning by Hal Elrod

What does the first hour of your day look like? Do you hit the snooze button, wake up exhausted, watch negative news, check to see who’s complaining about what on social media, eat a processed “food” breakfast … then you’re setting your day up to be unproductive. If you struggle with having good habits to set your day on the right track, this is the book for you. Six simple steps that you can do for 1 minute, 5 minutes or 10 minutes each. Do this consistently every day for a month and you will work smarter not harder, have energy, and know how you should spend your days. It will set up a habit that will last you a life time!


Allie’s Favorite Things #3: Self Journal

We’re on a theme here. Have gratitude, have good daily morning habits, and now make sure that you write down clear goals and track your time. If you’re like most people (and I was like this), I wasted a lot of time on stuff that was not laser focused on my goals. The Self Journal has you set one monster goal and then get really clear on tasks you need to do everyday to achieve that goal. It has you track your day (every hour). I use colored pens (red = time waster) and you will be AMAZED at how much time you really have to go for that one goal that has been put off for far too long. Because do you really need to spend 2 hours a day catching up on Game of Thrones? This book is only for 90 days but it will get you in the habit of working smarter, not harder so that you finally reach those goals.


Allie’s Favorite Things #4: Young Living Slique Shake

Let’s keep with the theme and get you a good morning habit! If you’re too busy for a wholesome breakfast, this is easy peasy! It’s a complete meal replacement, high protein, packed with essential oils and it tastes like strawberries! It contains pea protein, quinoa, wolfberry, pumpkin seed protein, and alfalfa grass juice. I like to toss in a handful of frozen blueberries and mix it in my NutriBullet. Oh, and it supports healthy weight management!


Allie’s Favorite Things #5: Butterfly Oracle Cards

Who’s going through life changes? If you know how oracle cards work, you will love working with this deck. The photos of the butterflies are beautiful and the messages are spot on. I love this deck!


Allie’s Favorite Things #6: The Energy Bus by Jon Gordon

I devour books like a bag of organic cheese popcorn, and this was no exception. I love the message of this book …. 10 simple steps to make sure that you are surrounded by the right people and that you are the right person to lead into success. No matter what work you do, it would be rare that you do it alone. This heart-warming book details why the 10 Energy Rules are crucial to a successful and fulfilled work and life.


Allie’s Favorite Things #7: Doreen Virtue’s Fairyologist Certification Course

Are you intrigued about fairies? Have you studied them, feel a connection to them, yet know that there’s more to learn? This is an awesome class where you receive indepth information on fairies worldwide, how to identify them, work with them and give fairy readings. It’s a fun self-paced online course with videos from Doreen Virtue. When you become certified you can even be listed on her website as a Certified Fairyologist!


Allie’s Favorite Things #8: Young Living Agilease

Who’s got some joint health issues? Feeling stiff or creaky after exercise, yoga, shoveling snow, or when you first wake up? This is one of my favorite daily supplements. It’s great for anyone who may experience a natural, acute inflammation. What’s the special secret? Frankincense powder (that’s super unique), UC-II undenatured collagen (most supplements have denatured collagen), specially formulated proprietary essential oil blend of Wintergreen, Copaiba, Clove, and Northern Lights Black Spruce—oils that are known for their joint health benefits and much more.


Allie’s Favorite Things #9: DNA in the Sands of Time by J. Justice

All I can say is WOW about this book. If you are curious about the Akashic Records, read this! It’s a huge book packed with information. It was written 10 years ago but the information is very relevant to our world today. I had so many a-ha moments in this book and many freaked out moments as well. This is knowledge we must have.


Allie’s Favorite Things #10: Young Living Abundance essential oil

Abundance is not just about money (although that’s nice). It’s a mindset. So you can either have an abundant mindset or a poverty mindset. An abundant mindset means that you have a lot of something … relationships, health, ideas, projects, work, finances, you name it. If your mindset is negative, you’ll have a lot of negative things in all areas of life. But if it’s positive, you’ll have a lot of positive things in those areas. This oil has a frequency to it that can put you in that positive abundant mindset. I apply this to the bottom of my feet everyday so that I’m stepping through my day with an abundant mindset. Sara wears it in a diffuser around her neck (and I secretly think she pours it over her head). Now seriously … would you rather have a poverty mindset or an abundant mindset? Get this oil and you’ll see what I mean.


Allie’s Favorite Things #11: Everyone Communicates, Few Connect by John Maxwell

With the surge in social media, we may think that we’re more connected, but are we? No matter work you do, connecting with people is crucial. And while most people communicate, they don’t connect. When you connect, everything changes for the better. Another favorite book!


Allie’s Favorite Things #12: Keepers of the Light Oracle Cards

If you love oracle cards, this deck combines so many favorite angels, masters, goddesses, etc. The messages are powerful and are perfect as we prepare for 2017. Definitely a must have for the oracle card connoisseur!

I wish all of you a very Merry Holiday Season and an Amazing 2017 New Year!

Annual Ritual 2016

Sand DreamsEach birthday, many people reflect back on the prior year and assess the achievement of their goals or what has been left undone. Some people do this consciously as an annual ritual, while others try to ward off thoughts of their birthday.

My birthday arrives in a few days, so I’m in the process of my annual ritual. Because this is also a milestone birthday, I’m in a lifetime review ritual as well. And I realized that the last time I blogged about my annual ritual was 5 years ago in 2011. My how time flies!

Here’s what I know: It can be easy to focus on what has been left undone and continue to add the same goals to your list to be achieved by your next birthday. It can be frustrating to keep putting the same goals on your list and not achieve them (I know … I have 2 big ones that still make my annual list).

Maybe you write out your list of intentions and goals and put it in an envelope not to be opened until your next birthday, or you post your intentions like a banner in a place you will see it everyday.

Having your list of intentions written out is a good practice for staying focused everyday so that you take actionable steps to manifest what you desire. Because intentions and desires without action just end up being unfulfilled wishes, right?

So if you feel like you have the same goals year after year and have not achieved what you want, you may simply need to shift your energy to identify what is blocking you, or take a hard look look as to why you are not reaching your goal and reconfigure those goals into something that is more aligned with why you are on this planet.

One good practice for shifting your energy is to focus on what you accomplished during the past year rather than focusing on what you did not achieve. If your energy is focused on lack and what you have still to achieve, then that sends a message to the Universe that you have lack and you will only manifest “the desire to achieve” rather than actually achieving your goal.

Mental health dyayHow do you do this? On your birthday, give yourself the gift of a day off and take the day for yourself. Spend the day focused on gratitude for all that you accomplished in the last year and that will increase your vibration to allow you to reach more of your goals.

So while there are so many goals and milestones left on my list,  when I think back to what I’ve done over my lifetime it is mind blowing. When I look just over the past year, these are just a few things that I am grateful for achieving (all of which were intentional and on my intentions board):

  • My health is thriving (and the same for kitties) to which I credit moving back home to Michigan in 2015 for a more balanced lifestyle and infusing myself and the kitties with Young Living oil-infused products;
  • I have grown my Young Living team because I share how awesome the oils and products are with everyone and anyone who is struggling, and I started working with team members who are interested in doing the same which has given me such joy to help them achieve their wellness and financial goals;
  • I made the courageous decision to walk way from an unsupportive legal work environment and decided to be my own boss which has resulted in delicious freedom and the opportunity to work with two universities on human-animal interaction programs and numerous invitations to teach at conferences;
  • For the first time I was invited to teach at a conference overseas, in Prague, this past May on my Therapy Animals Supporting Kids program which is helping to place volunteer therapy animal teams with abused children going through the court system and I have just confirmed another invitation to teach overseas later in the year;
  • I authored two book chapters:
  • I have made some awesome new friends, reconnected with friends from the past and met some really amazing people this past year;
  • And last but not least, this past year I have found a beautiful balance where I have more fun time and time to reflect.

Be happyLife is an adventure to be cherished. Do your best to live the life you were meant to live, stay focused on what you want to achieve, take action towards those goals, and focus on small and big successes. But above all else, be happy!

P.S. My cat Lucy (pictured below) turned 18 this month and I am so incredibly grateful to have her in my life.

Why essential oils?

YL farm store 2

For the past 3 years, my learning and use of essential oils has increased dramatically. I had used essential oils since the late 1990’s but I never talked about them or shared them. If social media existed back then, I would not have been posting about the oils. Why? Because they didn’t work! Sorry unnamed essential oils, all you did was smell pretty but you did nothing to support my physical, emotional, mental or spiritual health. And you had way too many precautions on how to use them and wouldn’t let me use them on my cats.

So why am I now talking about the oils and sharing them on social media? I found a brand that works! I no longer throw good money away on something that smells good; I invest my money in oils that actually support me from the inside out. And oils that I can use with my cats and other animals that I work with. It’s Young Living Essential Oils.

When I mention Young Living, a few people have immediately pushed back because (1) it’s a network/relationship marketing company so it’s a pyramid scheme, (2) they’ve read something unflattering about the company, or (3) they think the oils are too expensive.

Pinterest-MindfulnessHere’s what I know:

(1) Young Living is a network/relationship marketing company because they are brilliant about not spending money on TV/print/mass marketing and instead rely on the word of mouth of people who are using the oils. They are not a pyramid scheme. A pyramid scheme is an illegal scam where people invest money, the money flows up the hierarchy, and it does not involve the sale of products. Young Living is a $1+ billion company. Do you think that would have happened if it was a pyramid scheme? You are already sharing things that you love, right? Restaurants, movies, food, books, but you don’t get paid for doing it. Network marketing a brilliant business model to compensate people if they share your product, right? So what’s wrong with that? Absolutely nothing. There are hundreds (maybe thousands) of network marketing companies in the world and chances are you’ve purchased from one. If you have anything Tupperware in your house, you bought from a network marketing company. Avon, Mary Kay, Arbonne? Network marketing. So are we good that network/relationship marketing is not a scam?

(2) If you Google anyone or anything, you will find something negative. We all know people who love to complain from behind the safety of their computer. What I’ve learned over the years is that when you are an innovator, when you don’t play by the status quo rules, and you push boundaries to create something that no one else is or can, you will make some enemies along the way. It’s jealousy. Period. Some people love to knock down the movers and shakers. Innovative companies like Apple, Facebook, and so on have negative things about them on the Internet. But that doesn’t stop you from using Facebook or buying an Apple product, right? Do your own research and instead of looking for negative reviews, intentionally go looking for positive reviews and I can guarantee that you will find amazing stories about how Young Living essential oils are changing the lives of millions of people (and animals) across the planet. I don’t know about you, but I want to be associated with a mover-and-shaker like Young Living.

And (3) you can absolutely buy cheap oils at the health food store. But you’ll get cheap results like I did. Instead of wasting $14 on an adulterated synthetic bottle of Lavender oil, why not pay $23 for pure therapeutic grade Lavender oil from Young Living? When you align with a company that has its own farms, partner farms, and a process like Seed to Seal (which no one else has, but they try to replicate), you are guaranteed to have the best seed, best soil, best planting location, best time of harvest, best distillation process, and therefore the best purest oil in the bottle that you buy directly from the company. When I first started, I did not know to look for those factors in an essential oil. Once you know, you’ll never go back.

Think about this:

  • before Palo Santo (a tree) can be distilled, the tree has to lay on the ground for 2 years so that all of the oil’s constituents (those are the parts and pieces that actually do something) are available.
  • It takes 75 lemons to create one 15-ml bottle of pure therapeutic grade Lemon essential oil.
  • Young Living treks by boat into the Amazon to get the bark from a tree that gives us Copaiba oil (the most amazing overall wellness oil that you will find). I saw a video last year that showed the week-long round-trip adventure. That’s not a cheap trip. So when you see a $43 bottle of Copaiba from Young Living, ask yourself would I go into the Amazon on boat to get the bark to distill, or would I rather have someone experienced in that do it for me? The answer is simple, right?

PainReliefCream_Silo_USBut here’s something more that goes deeper than the effectiveness of the essential oils. The vision of Young Living is to bring essential oils to every home on the planet. The mission is to “honor our stewardship to champion nature’s living energy, essential oils, by fostering a community of healing and discovery while inspiring individuals to wellness, purpose, and abundance.”

  • Wellness: when you experience therapeutic-grade essential oils like Young Living, you will notice and feel the wellness benefits. It’s why Young Living has taken the oils and created dietary supplements, natural cleaners, food products, beauty products and more! Young Living has essential oils that are approved for dietary use. And they are the first essential oil company leading the way to having over-the-counter products that are based in essential oils like Cool Azul Pain Relief Cream and Agilease to work with acute inflammatory response in the body.
  • 2015 Earned ER and Free PromosPurpose: when you experience the benefits of the oils, you find a purpose in wanting to share the oils with other people. I tell my team that we should never keep the power of the Young Living oils to ourselves. People (and pets) are struggling and you may never know how sharing will impact a life. Most people want to help others and contribute to society. This is one way … this can give you a purpose.
  • Abundance: and when you share, you can experience abundance in all areas of life: health, relationships, spiritually, and financially. Young Living makes it easy to enjoy abundance through their Essential Rewards member loyalty club where you earn back a percentage of your monthly purchases in points to redeem for free products, to receiving free products each month based on how much you order. I love free stuff!

Rudy with Aria diffuserSo if you’ve wondered why I have been so chatty about the oils for the past 3 years, now you know. Because of my work with animals, I needed essential oils that were safe for them. And Young Living is the only essential oil company with a Veterinary Advisory Group and an Animal Essential Oil Conference. Because if I cannot use an essential oil on or around my pets, why would I use them on myself?

If you are using any essential oils, please make sure that they are pure therapeutic-grade and do not contain any synthetics or adulteration (especially if you are using them around pets, even the simple process of diffusing). And if you really want to make sure that the oil is pure from beginning to end, check this out.

And if you want to experience the benefits of Young Living, join my team …. the Purrmaste Oil Team! I have an awesome group of people (most of who have pets), we have our own Facebook page, you will receive all of my training workshops at no cost, and I’ll make sure that you know how to use these oils for your highest benefit. Win win, right?

P.S. And please enjoy my webinar on an Introduction of Young Living Essential Oils!

The 2016 Word of the Year is …

Each year I select a word that resonates with the upcoming year. Often it is a word of what I feel will unfold: a word of what I want or feel will manifest, and often it is a word for everyone!

I’ve gone back and forth between a couple of words that seem to resonate with 2016 … like reinvent and receive. I know that those two words are my power words for 2016. But the one word that keeps showing up all over the place is visible and I feel that is the 2016 Word of the Year for all of us!

2016 year of visibility

So what do I mean by Visibility? It’s about being able to see your life path in front of you clearly and knowing the steps to take. It’s about being in your car called life and instead of driving aimlessly with no destination planned, it’s about knowing where you want to go and believing that you will get there.

But it’s also about being visible in who you really are, the gifts that you have to offer to the world, and being open in sharing your passions. I know many people in the wellness and healing arts who are afraid or nervous to share their gifts so they are keeping their amazing knowledge bundled up and out of sight. It’s time to let those gifts out to shine!

Visibility came to me as I was creating my Healing-preneur class because that class is about helping anyone move their hobby to a business so that they can share more of their gifts and passions with others and earn a living doing it.

I’d love to hear from you about your 2016 Word of the Year and how Visibility resonates with you! With 2015 now behind us and the road to 2016 laying ahead, I want to wish you clear vision, abundance, joy and love! I’m excited and blessed that we are on this journey together.

Allie’s Favorite Things for 2016

Favorite Things 2016

Each December on my Facebook page, I post a daily item of one of my favorite things. It could be a book, training program, crystal, essential oil. It’s something that I have worked with that has risen to the top of my Favorite Things! Enjoy this list of my Favorite Things for 2016!

Thieves detergentAllie’s Favorite Thing #1: Thieves laundry soap and dish soap! Young Living launched these two products at the Grand Convention in August. I was struggling to find an all-natural non-toxic dish soap and laundry detergent that did not contain sodium lauryl sulfate. These two products work great and have the power of the Thieves blend to truly clean your clothes and dishes (and everything smells great)! As we approach 2016, it’s time to ditch the toxins and do all that we can to have non-toxic homes and these two products are a great start! (P.S. Be sure to enter #1414338 when checking out in the sponsor/enroller category. You can order retail or become a wholesale member.)

Allie’s Favorite Thing #2: Start with Why is a book for anyone who is struggling with their work, a project, or how they are living their life. It helps you to reverse the traditional way of thinking that is “start with what, then how, then why” and instead start with the why. Once you know why you are doing something, you have the energy and stamina, even through difficult times, to keep going. This book changed the way I work!

Allie’s Favorite Thing #3: The Lucky Bitch Money Bootcamp is for anyone who wants to earn more income doing what they love. This is a self-guided e-course that is chock full of practical, simple tactics to take your career and finances from owe to wow. If you have any energy money blocks (and we all do), you’ll learn how to identify and remove them. It’s really awesome and this program works …. I know because I went through it earlier this year.

AromaDomeAllie’s Favorite Thing #4: The Aroma Dome. When I layed in the Aroma Dome at the Young Living Grand Convention this year, I was transformed. I immediately purchased it and even offer Aroma Dome healing sessions! Everyone who climbs in it begs to stay just a bit longer because it is so relaxing. The Aroma Dome is a tent that you zip yourself in (don’t worry, the top of the tent is high up so that you don’t feel claustrophobic) while you diffuse your favorite oil into the tent. This is a great way to use oil blends to transform belief systems, infuse yourself with physical wellness (especially during winter), or to relax. (P.S. Be sure to enter #1414338 when checking out in the sponsor/enroller category. You can order retail or become a wholesale member.)

41mEEr0uXvL._SX333_BO1,204,203,200_Allie’s Favorite Thing #5: The Big Leap is another favorite book if you are contemplating a change in your career, relationship, where you live, or anything that is causing a bit of fear. Life is meant to be full of leaps and some are bigger than others. This books gives guidance and reassurance that when you listen to your inner voice, IT IS NEVER WRONG! This is a must read for 2016!

Allie’s Favorite Thing #6: The Fairy Tarot cards were by my favorite cards for 2015 and will be going into 2016. I love the fairy realm and the gentle guidance we can receive. These cards are so incredibly beautiful to look at and this is known as the “self esteem” deck. Whether you read the booklet or simply let the beauty of the cards and fairies speak to you, you will receive clear guidance for fulfilling your life purpose.

Fairy houseAllie’s Favorite Thing #7: Fairy gardens are a fun and beautiful way to frolic and connect with nature and the fairies that protect nature. Fairy gardens bring out your inner child and imagination and so fun to create. Whether you build little fairy houses, buy trinkets, string fairy lights, or plant botanicals and crystals, you will love to sit with your fairy garden. It is my favorite place to meditate.

Allie’s Favorite Thing #8: Christmas Spirit is a blend of Cinnamon, Orange and Spruce. It is what I diffuse, pretty much non-stop, from Halloween through the end of January. It is a beautiful and uplifting blend that makes your home (or office or car) smell like the holidays. I am never without this oil blend. (P.S. Be sure to enter #1414338 when checking out in the sponsor/enroller category. You can order retail or become a wholesale member.)

Allie’s Favorite Thing #9: If you haven’t worked with Leonie Dawson’s workbooks, then this will be a real treat! I’ve worked with these for 4 years and they get better each year. There is a calendar/workbook for business and one for your life! You debrief the previous year and get really specific about achieving your goals in 2016. This is a must have if you’re serious about 2016 being your best year yet!

Peppermint Cocoa lip balmAllie’s Favorite Thing #10: Make your own lip balm! I’m having a blast making my own organic lip balm. Once you purchase the base ingredients, they are so inexpensive to make … and fun! I’ve included a recipe card and you can purchase lip balm tubes or tins from Amazon. If you’re using the tubes, take old egg cartons, cut out small holes in the bottom, and the tubes will fit in and stand up when you pour in the balm mixture!

Allie’s Favorite Thing #11: While taking the Lucky Bitch Money Bootcamp (which was Favorite Thing #3), I found the Get Rich Lucky Bitch book by Denise Duffield-Thomas and I love love love it! Everyone has money blocks and this book has practical fun tips that you can take to start moving those blocks away so that you can manifest the financial abundance you desire. I read a lot of books each year and this one is at the top of my favorite list.

Allie’s Favorite Thing #12: Mini travel diffuser! I spend a lot of time traveling for work and this is a must-have to keep yourself well. I plug it in when I get to a hotel room and let it infuse the room with good smelling wellness. But it’s also excellent to take to your office or any other location where you want to enjoy the benefits of essential oils!

51KKbpnWOKL._SY344_BO1,204,203,200_Allie’s Favorite Thing #13: Magical Mermaids and Dolphins Oracle Cards are designed to help you manifest your goals, life purpose and dreams. I love the imagery on these cards and they are so much fun to work with. But most importantly, they are freakishly accurate! If you’ve never worked with oracle cards, just shuffle the cards as you think of your question. Then draw 1, 2, 3 or more cards.

Allie’s Favorite Thing #14: Angel Tuners! I discovered these when I was visiting Sedona (most magical place) in October. I love healing sound, but these are truly out of this world. The 3 tuning forks have the vibrational frequency of 4096 Hz, 4160 Hz and 4225 Hz!!! They were created to help raise our vibration so that we can better hear angelic guidance. Just clang the tuning fork and wave it through your energy field and you will feel lighter and more connected. It’s awesome!

Allie’s Favorite Thing #15: Marie Forleo’s B-School is for anyone who will do the work to launch their passion business. This is an intensive online school for anyone who is serious about growing their business and truly being their own boss. It is practical, eye-opening and Marie’s personality is funny at times. I invested in my business and myself earlier in the year and went through B-School. It was one of the best investments I’ve made. B-School only comes around once a year, so get on Marie’s email list for the launch in March 2016! Message me if you have questions.

Allie’s Favorite Thing #16: Nail polish rack for your essential oils! When you become an oil hoarder like I have, you want them at your fingertips and displayed beautifully. This nail polish rack does it!

Allie’s Favorite Thing #17: Don’t Let Anything Dull Your Sparkle! This is Doreen Virtue’s latest book and it’s unlike any of her other books. It addresses how people are addicted to drama, how stress and even certain types of foods create a histamine-response in our body that draws us to drama and creates a vicious cycle. Very eye-opening!

Peppermint Vanilla Sugar ScrubAllie’s Favorite Thing #18: Make your own sugar scrub! This year I have really gone towards non-toxic all-natural products and that includes all bath and body products! We are surrounded by toxins all day long so it’s no wonder that so many people are getting sick. You can totally do something about that and start making your own products! It’s really easy, you know exactly what the ingredients are and you will save a lot of money. Here is my favorite recipes for sugar scrubs!

Allie’s Favorite Thing #19: Passion planner. This is a 2nd calendar planner that I have been working with the past few months and I really love it. It’s contained in one small book, you can list out your hourly/daily tasks, your goals, wishes, and set milestones you want to reach. I have been testing out different planners because I spend a lot of time with goal setting and my days are always packed with meetings, etc. This is a great planner that brings everything together in one planner!

Copaiba1Allie’s Favorite Thing #20: Favorite oils for cats! Young Living Frankincense and Copaiba! These two oils will be your cat’s best friends. I like to combine them together in a bottle (I clean out and use my empty essential oil bottles), add in a carrier oil (a 8-10 drop ratio of carrier oil to 1 drop of essential oil) and then I apply a small amount down the back of my cats. These are two powerful wellness oils that work at the cellular level! (P.S. Most oils are not safe for pets, so be sure to use Young Living!)

Screen Shot 2016-01-05 at 7.59.27 AMAllie’s Favorite Thing #21: Ionic Foot bath. I’ll admit, it’s gross but it’s amazing at the same time. You put your feet in warm water, the ionic instrument is placed in the water, and through the exchange of positive and negative ions, you detox especially heavy metals, yeast and other yuckies! But biggest benefit is that you also alkalize your body. Read the article below on why that’s important. My motto … better out than in! I have an ionic foot bath about every 3 weeks. If you’re in the Lansing, MI area and want to join me one day, just message me! We can be grossed out and in awe together!

Allie’s Favorite Thing #22: Archangel Gabriel oracle cards! This deck just came out this month! Gabriel is the messenger angel and supports those who bring messages to the world (such as writers, teachers, artists, etc.). So if you’re looking for guidance going into 2016, this is an awesome deck!

Stellar BeamsAllie’s Favorite Thing #23: Need a last minute gift that is really unique? I have unusual crystals for sale!!! Lemurians, Moldavite, Vesuvianite, Stellar Beam Calcite and more! I love to select unusual, rate and high vibrational crystals for other people. Check out the collection that I have for purchase!

Allie’s Favorite Thing #24: Infused 7. Young Living and the Oola guys have created one of my favorite oil collections that combines the power of Young Living essential oils with the simple and life-changing principles of Oola. Oola is a state of awesomeness. It’s living a life that is balanced and growing in the seven key areas of health and well-being: Faith, Family, Field (work), Finance, Fitness, Friends and Fun. It’s unlocking the potential for greatness that lies within each of us. It’s finding true purpose and meaning for your life. I love love love this kit and have worked with it extensively as I took my leap of faith in moving back home to Michigan earlier in the year and transforming my career. It is powerful! (P.S. Be sure to enter #1414338 when checking out in the sponsor/enroller category. You can order retail or become a wholesale member.)

Allie’s Favorite Thing #25: Living where you want, doing what you want! This has been an amazing year of change for me … and all for the better. I am back home in Michigan living where I want and doing the work that I love (which is still an interesting combo of animal protection legal work and healing work). This Christmas Day I hope that you surrounded by those who you love and can find joy as we wind down 2015. If you’re not where you want to be or doing what you want to do, you can make it happen in 2016. Check out my new online course Be a Healing-Preneur (recorded version will be ready by mid-January) that will help you turn your hobby into your passion biz!

Screen Shot 2015-11-29 at 3.41.32 PMAllie’s Favorite Thing #26: Make your own body butter. Can I be blunt? It’s time that we stop bringing toxins into our home and putting them on and in our body. Look at the ingredients in your bath and body products. If you cannot pronounce an ingredient, then you shouldn’t be using it. Why not make your own luscious body butter using just a few natural ingredients! Check out this awesome body butter recipe that will make your dry winter skin say Aaaaahhhh!!

Allie’s Favorite Thing #27: Wellness pendants. These pendants will make you feel great! The Grounding pendant gives you more energy and alertness (it really does) and the Flow pendant you wear at night and you will have better dream recall!

Allie’s Favorite Thing #28: Pure Protein Complete. I am not a protein powder kinda girl, but I love love love this protein powder! Pure Protein Complete is a comprehensive protein supplement that combines a proprietary 5-Protein Blend, amino acids, and ancient peat and apple extract to deliver 25 grams of protein per serving. It supports ATP production and energizes the body. The chocolate version is so yummy and it is excellent in the morning or when you need an energy boost. (P.S. Be sure to enter #1414338 when checking out in the sponsor/enroller category. You can order retail or become a wholesale member.)

Allie’s Favorite Thing #29: Peel n Stick Chalk sheets! This is one organizational tool that I cannot live without! I have these posted on the wall in my home office and every Sunday I use my chalk markers and write out my week! Sometimes I forget to look at my computer calendar, my phone calendar, my Passion Planner/Leonie planner (as you can tell, I have a lot of calendars and planners). This is the one way that I know I won’t miss an appointment! It’s right in my face, it’s fun and crafty. And when the day is done, I just take a wet paper towel and it erases right off! I love it!!

Allie’s Favorite Thing #30: The 15 Invaluable Laws of Growth. I listed to this audio book when I was on a long drive from Michigan to Virginia and back. It is packed full of practical and awesome guidance on how we can continue to grow in our lives and businesses. I’m always engaging in personal development and this is one book that is worth getting as we get ready to welcome in 2016!

Allie’s Favorite Thing #31: Angel Answers oracle cards. Sometimes we just need a blunt answer, right? I love these cards because they are blunt and give you quick answers. You don’t have to be trained in how to work with oracle cards. Just get a deck, shuffle it while thinking of your question and then you will instinctively pick the right card. I love this deck!!!

I wish you a year ahead filled with abundance, joy and love!

What happens when you are doing your passion work?

AdLast night someone said to me that they could not wait for today because they would be taking 2 weeks away from the office. This time of year I would also be looking forward to taking 2 weeks off over the Christmas holidays. I would bank my vacation days and eagerly look forward to 2 weeks of turning off my legal brain and having no work travel. I would usually “work” on Manifested Harmony business (like creating new classes), but I enjoyed that so it did not feel like work. What I was doing was taking a vacation from office drama and stressful work that was draining. I love my work to protect animals, but the peripheral office stress was what I needed a vacation from.

So what’s different this year? Well … I moved back home to Michigan for a less-stressed lifestyle; I walked away from office drama and that peripheral stress and now work from home; I don’t have to bank vacation days or have a year-long craving for 2 weeks away from the office because I can take a vacation and days off whenever I want.

Infused-7-graphicHow did I do it? I made the bold-big-leap-you-can-fly-and-be-your-own-boss decision earlier in the year. I uprooted everything, shook that proverbial snow globe and love where everything has settled. What I did was take control of my days, my work and my life. What I did was consciously work the Law of Attraction and act as if what I desired was actually happening (like telling people I was going to move about a year before I actually did). I truly believed it was happening, I talked about it, and then I started taking the steps and it all felt divinely guided. I also worked extensively with my essential oils to maintain faith and strength during the change (the Oola Infused7 oil kit was amazing).

Every day I decide when I want to work, who I want to work with, what I want to work on, and for how long. Mondays are no longer a dread day, there’s no TGIF because every day is TGIF, and I don’t hold my breath until I can take an extended vacation from “the office”.

So today, in particular, is very different than the past 20+ years because normally it would be “THE LAST FRIDAY BEFORE MY 2 WEEK VACATION!!!” Instead, today is yet another awesome day where I’m not living for a vacation or working for the weekend, but living each day fully.

My home and the world is my office, my work and who I hang out with are my choosing. It’s liberating, it’s awesome, it’s life changing. When you make the decision to pursue your passion work, your world changes.

Of course, you have to get comfortable with potentially making less money to start with (although it’s really smart to launch your passion biz while you still have another income), getting comfortable with change and relying on yourself for your financial stability. Too many people are frozen in fear in taking that step, but I can tell you from experience that there is nothing to fear. It’s invigorating and when you can block the nay-sayers you will learn so much about yourself and what you are capable of doing.

Dir of my lifeMost people have a hobby that they dream about turning into a business. They dream about being the Director of a business called My Life. They visualize what it would be like to take back their days and make a positive impact by sharing their gift(s) with the world. But most people either don’t know how to get started or they are too busy and too stressed to take the first step.

This is why I just created a new online class to help you launch your passion business. It was created for energy healers, essential oil distributors, new network marketing distributors, and wellness coaches; but the information can be translated to any small business venture.

So if this rings a bell in your head, the angels start singing, or your dog pushes your hand to click on the image below, do me a favor and check out the class. It’s coming up live on January 3rd …. Just in time to kick of 2016 and fulfill a New Year’s Intention! The class will also be recorded if you cannot make the live class or if you want to watch it later. I kept the information simple and used my experiences in incorporating Manifested Harmony in both Virginia and Michigan, working with social media, websites, newsletters, trademarks, and so much more. So I hope you will join me for this new class and make 2016 the year that you FINALLY turn your hobby into your passion biz!

Rest then act

Have you felt like the past few years have been all about identifying what is no longer working for you and releasing? Have you noticed that people, situations, and things fell away during this time? Some may have been welcomed releases and others sad releases. I had some friends and work situations fall away and it was sad but necessary because they were weighing me down. What has become clear is that the past few years gave us an opportunity to reflect on our lives, face fear (to stop us from living in fear), and make much-needed changes.

But now the energy of change and release is not as intense. Have you felt relief in the past few weeks? I certainly have. We are in a time to rest, reflect, rejuvenate, and re-evaluate because very soon it will be time to start moving forward and taking action without the weight of what we released. Part of this rest is due to being in Mercury Retrograde (which ends on October 9th). But if you’re like me, you’re having trouble fully resting because we’ve spent 2-3 years doing, going, releasing, changing and consciously (or subconsciously) reworking our lives. Do you still feel like you need to be going and moving but the energies are making you tired to force some rest?

Here’s the thing about the time of rest that we’re in … it’s really important that you take advantage of this energetic down time. Take some time right now to reflect on these questions and write down your answers:

  • What did your life look like 3 years ago and where are you now that is different? What was your fear level 3 years ago on a scale of 1 to 10?
  • What has fallen away (disappeared/released) from your life in the past 3 years and how do you now feel about that? Look at career, relationships, health, finances, where you live, people who surround you, etc.
  • When you look back 3 years, how do you feel about your life right now?
  • Knowing where you are now, how do you now feel about change?
  • And on a scale of 1 to 10, where is your fear level today?

Taking the time right now to reflect on these questions and where you are now will help you get prepared to take action and start moving forward to embrace and grab the life that you are meant to have (without the weight of old energies from the past). Are you ready to do that? It’s okay if you feel nervous about it or don’t see the path clearly in front of you. First you need to give yourself some time, even just a day or two, to rest and reflect. Then you can get moving again and you will know the first step to take.

For the past 3 years, you may not have consciously made changes, but found yourself walking the path of change. That’s how the new energies are working. So these changes will continue to take place whether you recognize it or not because change begins at the subconscious and energy level.

  • Embrace change, don’t fight it, and go with the flow. When you fight change it’s like paddling back up stream and you’re only going to get exhausted. Drop the oars of resistance and see where it takes you.
  • Be aware of how your days unfold. Too many people are going through the motions because they are so stressed or so busy. That’s not living. I know, because I was there. When you become consciously aware of how you spend your days, you will more easily accept when a new path appears.
  • Get yourself a stock of therapeutic-grade essential oils that will support you during change and promote a positive attitude. When you work with these oils, you change your vibration. And when you have a vibrational level that you can sustain without it being a rollercoaster, you will feel better physically and emotionally. My favorites are Abundance, Believe, Clarity, Envision, Forgiveness, Highest Potential, Hope, Joy, Sacred Mountain, Transformation, White Angelica, and the Infused7 kit.  Go here to learn more!
  • Tap tap tap. When you use the Emotional Freedom Technique everyday and tap on concerns, worries, and energy blocks, you can release those and let other deep-down issues bubble up so that those can be released too. Tapping will help you feel better as change happens.
  • And be very discerning about what you think, what you say, and what you do. The energies are such that manifesting is happening rapidly for many people. What you think, say and do will appear in your world. So if you are thinking about money worries, you will have money worries. If you tell people how sick/tired/upset you are, you will be sick/tired/upset. If you are engaging in activities/work that do not bring you joy and fulfillment, then you are sending a conflicting message to the Universe that you give your precious time to these unfulfilling tasks and you will get more of the same.

Mercury Retrograde ends on Friday. So give yourself the space until then to rest, reflect, rejuvenate and re-evaluate. When you do that, you will have the energy to take action and soar in the right direction. Without it, you may continue to feel weighted down.

What is a sensitive person to do with social media nastiness?

I have been labeled a highly sensitive person every since I was a toddler. Ballet lessons at the age of 4 were unbearable for me because I would sob to the classical music (even though I loved ballet and all forms of dancing); and it was unbearable for everyone else, too. I am still this way: sad music, sad movies, movies where animals are harmed (even cartoons), and people with harsh words send me into my introverted turtle shell to hide.

If you listen to what other people say, watch the news, or interact on social media, you are bound to be overwhelmed by negativity if you are highly sensitive. It’s easy for people to behave badly on social media because they can do so from behind the safety of their computer. Recent public events have brought out the worst judgment in people; not based on the issue at the core of the situation, but based on people going way off topic and attacking people for things that have nothing to do with the issue. Think of it this way, everyone messes up (some more than others). Now think of the last mistake that you made and imagine it going viral on social media and being on national news? Now imagine that people start to comment negatively on your looks, your family, or things that have nothing to do with your mistake? It makes the rhyme about sticks and stones ring in my ears. Get the gist of my angst?

Let goAs a trial attorney, I learned quickly which battles to fight and to often take the high road. When it comes to the (c)rudeness on social media, I most often just move on and don’t say anything because the last thing I want is the negativity directed at me. I sacredly safe guard my energy. But I have reached the ceiling on all of this nastiness to where I am now unfollowing certain friends and taking myself out of group pages that I joined to help me on my business.

One particular post on a group business page (that I paid to be a part of) pushed it too far last night. One person was expressing her frustration about a particular business style. When I saw people jumping on the negativity band wagon and back handing other un-related businesses in the process, that had nothing to do with the original post, I had to comment. One thing that I wrote in my comment was “I’m seeing more and more how social media groups are influencing core beliefs in us that may not be healthy.”

People around youI have found it to be true that we are only as successful, happy, healthy as the people we associate with the most. Whether we acknowledge it or accept it, when we hang out on certain social media pages the information on that page penetrates our subconscious and can become a core belief.

I have no problem speaking up for myself and others (I’m an animal advocate after all). But whenever I speak up against nastiness on social media, I don’t feel better because it’s people that I don’t know personally and if I met them I likely would not friend them in real life. And then I wonder if the lynch mob will turn on me. I just don’t want to see those negative posts because I don’t want that negative energy in my life. Can you relate? Have you felt this way too?

So what’s a sensitive person to do with social media nastiness? Here are my tricks that are helping me to stay kind but strong and not hide in my blanket fort all day long.

  • Tapping (Emotional Freedom Technique) is a quick and effective method for moving out harmful energy that you have experienced. Click here to learn how to tap. I have tapped for years but in the past 2 weeks I have been tapping daily (and sometimes multiple times a day). I find that it’s helpful to immediately tap when something bothers you. No need to imprint that situation in your body. Tap tap tap and get it out!
  • Add essential oils to your fingertips when you’re tapping. I have been using Release oilClick here to watch a video that I recently created on how I tap with oils. You can also diffuse essential oils or place a drop in your hands to inhale (make sure they are safe for that use) … any oil will do because oils help to balance your energy field. But Roman Chamomile, Neroli and Rose are good choices.
  • I love the emotional releasing combination of Malachite with Rhodochrosite. Place them all over your solar plexus and heart chakra for 15-20 minutes.
  • Go for a massage or energy healing session. Get the energy moved out of your body.
  • Journal and write out what is upsetting you. Writing it out helps to get it out.
  • Do something to bring your attention to being present (so that your thoughts stop replaying the situation): dancing, yoga, walking/running/exercise, a walk on the beach, get together or talk with a positive uplifting friend, listen to uplifting music.
  • Forgive yourself for getting upset. Check out my blog on forgiveness and more helpful tips.
  • And hug your pets … they are pure unconditional love and compassion.

You’re not alone if the nastiness on social media is overwhelming. I know that the energies are really challenging all of us and pushing us to the next level, but the next level of energy is all about compassion.

So here’s my wish: Let’s flood social media with positivity!!!! Inspiring posts, posts about having better body/heart/mind/spirit, posts about helping others, and sharing lots and lots of photos/videos of cute animals! And use #positivepost.
