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.

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!

Getting over the Ickiness

I use to care what people thinkI have a confession to make. There’s something in my work that made me feel icky when I first started doing it. I did not know I was feeling icky about it until someone asked me about it and I struggled to explain it. I knew there was an energy block and when I had a chat with myself about it, I realized that I was letting other people’s opinions (OPOs) control how I felt about what I was doing. For goodness sakes … I’m a Leo and that is never acceptable!! So I decided to venture out to help myself get over the ickiness being caused by OPOs.

So what was making me feel so icky? The concept of network marketing, otherwise known as multi-level marketing (MLM). Let me explain. I am totally addicted to and in love with Young Living essential oils. They have changed my life, the life of my cats, my family and friends. Maybe you’ve heard about Young Living and you love them too, or maybe you’re with another oil company, or maybe you don’t like Young Living or essential oils at all. All of that is beside the point. If you’re in a MLM, or if you’ve been thinking about joining one, you may have felt this ickiness at some point. So I am writing this blog to help you get beyond OPOs so that you can create financial stability.

MLM structure

What is a MLM? It’s a business model that relies on people sharing the product via word of mouth rather than the company spending money on advertising. One person joins, they love the product and rave about it and others start to join and use the products and share, and so on. You earn a monthly check based on the volume of your group’s orders. Some people call it a pyramid scheme and that sends me over the edge because of the complete and utter ignorance in that belief.

A pyramid scheme is illegal and it’s nothing more than someone getting people to pay them money with the promise that if they sign up other people they will get a return on their investment. There are no products whatsoever involved. It’s simply people giving money to someone above them in hopes that they will make more than they invested. That’s a pyramid scheme and it’s illegal in the U.S. MLMs or Network Marketing companies with a product are reputable and NOT pyramid schemes.

Here’s why. Some people think that if a company is built like a pyramid with one person at the top who recruits a level of people who then recruit levels of people below them that it is a pyramid scheme. Think about it … what model is that? CEO, then Vice Presidents, then Management, then Employees? It’s called business. IBM, Apple, Ford and every other business on the planet has a CEO who has a level of executives who have a level of managers who hire workers. It’s shaped like a pyramid, just like a MLM, but it is not a pyramid scheme other than it’s shaped like a pyramid.

So here’s what I know about MLM businesses:

  • you are your own boss
  • you decide when you work
  • you decide who you work with
  • you decide how you want to work
  • you decide if it’s a home-based business (you can be at home with your kids and pets)
  • you decide how much income you will make
  • you get pay raises based on your hard work (not the same percentage that everyone gets whether they work hard or not)
  • you do not need any special education, degrees or expertise
  • you will earn money even if you are sick, on vacation or taking a break
  • you will never have a fixed income and can earn as much as you want
  • you will be rewarded for your hard work with incentive trips, retreats, gifts, free products as a thank you from the company for helping them avoid costly traditional advertising
  • you spend your time sharing passionately about products that have changed your life for the better and you want others to benefit
  • you get unlimited support from your upline (the people who came before you) because you only grow in MLM when you help others grow (name me another industry that does that?)
  • and you can truly achieve financial security based on your passion, dedication and work ethic.

Dir of my lifeNow, who would ever turn down any of those benefits? No one. But when I say the words Multi-Level Marketing or Network Marketing, people cringe. And I was one of those people. Why? Why was I cringing over a business model that I knew nothing about? It was because of OPOs. Once I figured that out, I was mad. Mad at people making judgments about a business model that they also knew nothing about, but most importantly mad at myself for letting OPOs control me. Grrrr……

So what did I do? I launched myself into massive education about MLMs and decided that if I still felt icky after learning all that I could, then I would know it was not right for me. But guess what? I’ve learned a ton about MLM (and still have more to learn) and I now feel AWESOME about the business model. Here’s why:

  • Well-respected business leaders say that MLMs are the most stable and sustainable business model if you want current, long term and permanent financial stability. Who are those people? Tony RobbinsWarren Buffet (who actually owns several MLMs), Sir Richard Branson, Donald Trump, Robert Kiyosaki (Rich Dad, Poor Dad best selling author) just to name a few.
  • The Wall Street Journal calls MLM’s The Ultimate Social Business Model.
  • Forbes magazine proclaimed MLMs as providing financial stability in retirement. Robert Laura, author of the article, stated, “I believe that the entire industry is poised for explosive growth and can be one of the most significant solutions to America’s current retirement savings crisis.” Read it here.
  • Forbes magazine also called MLMs a successful business model in this article. I love how the article ends, “So, the next time you meet someone who runs a “home business” or “MLM” give them a high five for taking their career and life into their own hands and becoming an entrepreneur.”
  • There’s typically a very low investment to get started (usually under $200).
  • And at least for me and Young Living … we don’t sell, we share. (I still have a mini-block when it comes to “selling” … I’m working on it).
  • You attract people who have a need that you can meet. For me, it’s the wellness aspect of essential oils for people and pets in balancing the physical, emotional, mental and spiritual energies!
  • If just a few people sign up under you (become a part of your downline), you may earn a monthly check to pay for your product purchases.
  • If you get a few more people who love the products like you and they begin to sign up people, you may earn a monthly check to give you extra spending money each month (to pay monthly bills, to set aside for vacation or college education or retirement)
  • If you go all in you could replace your current income and potentially earn more than you’ve ever made (no matter what your career has been)
  • And I could go on and on, but I think you get the point. This is legitimate stuff.

So I’ve taken classes, attended conferences and read books on MLMs. I really recommend these 3 books (two of which are very short and easy to read).

The more I learn, the more I realize how shaky the American and world economy is; that people do not have sufficient (or sometimes any) savings; that there is no such thing as job security and you could lose your job at any moment; that if a financial crisis hits (a healthcare crisis that could cost hundreds of thousands of dollars to treat, a weather disaster destroys your home) you could lose everything; that too many people are in constant financial fear about tomorrow.

The Oil Fairy spreads wellness while on travel!

 

Although I am in the beginning stages of the MLM business to compliment Manifested Harmony, I can already tell you that IT’S TOTALLY WORTH IT! I love the people who have joined my Young Living team, I love the people in my upline who help and support me, I love sharing and teaching about the oils, I love interacting with new people and hearing how amazed they are at the results from using the oils, I love changing the lives of people and pets who are struggling with wellness and finances. I go about my day like an Oil Fairy dropping little samples here and there to people who are visibly struggling and need a boost (I do this a lot on airplanes). And after all of that, I love my monthly check … it subsidizes my oil habit and more as it grows.

And I chose Young Living because of its mission.

YL-mission

So whether it’s Young Living or another MLM, I really encourage you to take your financial present and future into your hands and seriously consider why you are spending your days in a job (that maybe you don’t really like) helping someone else achieve their financial goals while you trade your time for dollars for a fixed income. You can start your MLM business while you still have your job and start to create residual income and a sustainable future.

And for me, I no longer feel icky.

As always, if you want to learn more or have an online or phone chat with me about the business potential of Young Living, just drop me an email and I’d be super excited to explain even more.

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.

1888832_912630665422808_8398983688183840928_oSo what can you do?

  • 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.

Tapping + Oils = Powerful combination

The Emotional Freedom Technique, or tapping, is a powerful yet simple method to release emotions and reprogram core beliefs that are blocking you from the life that you desire.

My favorite addition to the tapping method is to add Release essential oil to my finger tips. Doing this allows the therapeutic-grade oils to penetrate my skin and enhance the release of the emotions and core beliefs. Check out the video below, which I recorded on Periscope this week, that shows how I do this.

I always feel lighter after tapping; after adding Release oil the light feeling is significantly amplified. It’s difficult to put it into words, so I encourage you to try it yourself.

The one constant that I do in my business and my own healing practice is that I layer the healing modalities. Tapping with essential oils is a great example of how layering can amplify the benefits.

You can can learn more about tapping at The Tapping Solution.

I give essential oils to my cats (and it’s safe)!

Lucy and CopaibaIf you google “essential oils and cats” you will get about 10 gazillion pages that say, in no uncertain terms DON’T DO IT! And you know what, I agree. Because a vast majority of essential oils do not have the purity to be used with the sensitive bodies of animals. They have been planted with inferior plants, grown in toxic soil, cultivated with pesticides and toxic fertilizers, distilled with chemicals, or bottled with fillers to make the oils cheaper. All of these contribute to why there are so many legitimate warnings cautioning against the use essential oils with pets, especially our precious felines.

However, I’m going to go out on a limb in hopes of educating you that not all essential oils are the same. If you do not know about Young Living oils, this could change your life. If you’ve read anything that I’ve blogged/posted in the past 2-1/2 years, you are probably familiar with my love of Young Living oils for pets. And if you’ve already formed an opinion about Young Living (whether positive or negative), I encourage you to keep reading.

Young Living has a long history of having pet-safe oils. They have a Veterinary Advisory Council of experts who have worked with the oils and provide their expertise to ensure the safety of the oils for animals. Even though I am an attorney who has specialized in animal protection, I take my guidance from the experts.

I love learning about the science of Universal Laws, energy healing, crystals and essential oils (although I wanted to poke my eye out with a pen when I had to take science classes in high school and college … and it’s why I’m a lawyer and not a doctor). I’m not going to get all sciency on you because I’m not a scientist, but I want to share two simple points why I believe that Young Living oils are safe for pets.

Seed to sealFirst, Young Living’s Seed to Seal guarantee is how they do business; it’s not just a slogan. Young Living has its own farms and co-op farms so that they can oversee every part of the process before an essential oil bottle arrives on your doorstep.

  • They select the best seeds (no GMO or chemical-grown seeds).
  • They plant them in the proper soil/temperature and location. Just because I can grow lavender in my yard doesn’t mean it’s the high therapeutic-grade value of lavender that Young Living grows.
  • They cultivate without fertilizers or pesticides and they hand-pull weeds (gee, can you come to my house and pull weeds?).
  • They harvest the plants/trees/flowers/bushes when they can provide the highest therapeutic value in the oil; they don’t harvest when it’s convenient for Young Living.
  • They distill using steam distillation (no alcohol or cutting agents to get the oils to come out faster) and for some they use cold-pressing. When they distill or press, it’s just the oil that comes out.
  • And then they bottle and seal the cap. I tell people to never ever ever purchase Young Living oils from Amazon, Ebay or another generic site because Young Living cannot guarantee those oils. Although I may sell a bottle of oil on occasion, I show people how to buy from YoungLiving.com (and get wholesale prices) so that they know the oil in the bottle is exactly what it says it is.

Second, Young Living therapeutic-grade essential oils are safe to ingest, inhale and/or apply topically because of their purity; and this is what makes them safe for pets. You may know this next part, but for others it could be the first time you’ve heard it. Whatever we ingest ends up in our blood system and cells, right? You eat a bag of cheese popcorn and bam it’s in your blood stream and traveling to your cells and organs. You eat a handful of broccoli and the same thing. This is why we either feel great or crappy after we eat food.

When we put something on our skin (our largest organ and the organ that detoxes junk out of us) it goes directly into our blood stream and cells. I’ve actually heard some people say “it doesn’t matter what I put on my skin because I can just wipe/rinse it off.” Uhhhhh, I don’t think so sweet pea. What you put on your skin goes into your blood stream and your cells like a bullet. Think of all of the patches that are on the market now to control smoking, birth control, or input medicine in your system. When I was in high school I suffered from motion sickness and was given a transdermal patch to wear on the back of my ear to control it. It worked great. How did it work? It went in through my skin and into my blood stream and cells.

Next, whatever we smell goes directly from our nose to our brain and into our blood stream. That usually freaks people out because think of how many noxious and obnoxious odors we smell everyday. Ewwww!!! So when you smell an essential oil (either from the bottle or from diffusing into the air) it travels very quickly to your brain and into your blood stream. Have you ever had a flashback to a memory when you’ve smell something? Maybe Rose reminds you of a hand cream that your grandmother wore? Because we store emotions in the brain (the amygdala to be exact), that’s where the oils travel to and trigger a memory. They go to the brain!

2014-04-20-12-18-18Most oils say that they are not to be ingested, should not be applied topically unless diluted, and should not be used with pets; they are to only be smelled. For those oils, trust what the label says. But if an oil is safe to smell and smelling takes it to our brain and into our bloodstream, why can we not ingest them or use with pets? Do you see the problem? This is why most Young Living oils contain a dietary supplement label (check out the photo).

So we know that what we ingest, what we apply topically and what we smell goes into our blood stream and to our cells. So answer me this, when an essential oil gives a disclaimer that says ….

Screen Shot 2015-07-22 at 8.17.00 AM

… why would you want to use it on yourself or your pet? Any oil that has this disclaimer has a purpose, but it’s not a therapeutic grade oil that you would want entering your bloodstream or your pet’s. This is why the therapeutic grade of the Young Living oils that can be used all ways (ingested, topically and aromatically) are truly safe for all, including pets.

I joined Young Living because I wanted to offer essential oils to my cats, to shelter pets and to abused/neglected animals. I am conservative in how I use the oils with them because cats are missing an enzyme in their liver to help process the oils. But they are still safe to use Young Living oils with cats if you know how. The simplest way is to diffuse the oils (with a cold diffuser). Your cat will take in the therapeutic benefits and can walk into a different room if they need a break. Cats are smart, they will walk away if something doesn’t feel right. My cats love to hang out in rooms that have a diffuser.

After reading this, if you’re still not on board with offering Young Living oils to pets, that’s okay. Just be open to the idea.

I am passionate about getting Young Living oils and diffusers into animal shelters, especially for cats who tend to do poorly in cages and can exhibit scared behavior that can be misinterpreted as aggression. Gary Young’s vision for Young Living is to get oils in every home on the globe. Now imagine a day when every animal shelter diffuses Young Living essential oils to keep the cats happy and balanced? That’s my vision.

Before you begin working with Young Living oils for yourself or your pet, I think it’s important to learn about them. If you want to learn specifics about how to offer essential oils to pets, please log on to one of my webinars. Check upcoming webinars here. And if you’re ready to join Young Living, I’d love to have you as part of my group. We’re a growing group of oiling animal people who have a lot of experience and information to share!

The Concern with Other People’s Money

We live in a society where everyone wants to have financial abundance, right? The phrase financial freedom is now common and is often the most requested wish in prayers, affirmations, vision boards and intention setting. Everyone, no matter where they live, their education, their culture, wants to live without money worries. We live in a money driven world and having money provides security and safety. But most people have money blocks.

What is a money block? It’s a belief system that is stored in your energy field that holds your true un-politically correct belief about money. If you are praying, visualizing and intending for financial freedom/abundance but you have a core belief that is the opposite, the core belief wins out every time.

So why I am talking about this today? It’s because I am seeing more and more social media posts where people are shaming others for making large sums of money. In particular, a post is making the rounds again about large annual salaries of non-profit organization CEOs. And recently I learned that one of my business mentors has been publicly shamed for what she charges for her services; amazing services that have given her financial freedom to do the work that she loves. Don’t you want to be paid to do the work that you love?

Here’s what I think when I see people sharing money shaming posts and expressing outrage about the money that other people make:

  1. Is the information actually accurate? It amazes me how people are quick to forward something without verifying that it’s true. So much online information is not accurate. So by sharing, you are making an assumption on a false belief that it’s true. And when you then attach your negative opinion (your energy) about how much money other people make, it sends out an energy wave of negativity that will come back on you but will also impact those around you. That’s just a bad move, so don’t do it!
  2. Even if the information is true about other people’s money, who are we to judge what another high-level leader makes in a salary? Businesses and non-profits have boards of directors who have approved a CEO’s salary. And we do not know what the CEO has to do for that salary (e.g., the number of hours worked each week, the stress of holding a business on his/her shoulders, etc.) or whether the CEO donates a large portion of the salary back to the company. But the instant assumption is negative (e.g., the CEO is greedy so don’t donate to that non-profit) rather than positive (e.g., the CEO has donated a portion of the salary to building an animal sanctuary or a children’s hospital). When people react negatively about other people’s money, this is a core belief that money is evil and you cannot do good things or be a good person if you have a 7-figure or higher salary.
  3. When you privately, and publicly, criticize another person for achieving financial freedom, that solely speaks to your insecurity, jealousy, and recognition that you do not have the right vibration or energy to draw in financial freedom. Misery loves company, right? So you shame the other person for making good money. The first response is to attack the person rather than celebrate the person for achieving financial abundance.

There is more than enough money and stuff to go around for everyone. There is no shortage of money but there is a shortage of the money mindset. If you have a shortage of money, this is directly related to your money vibe. Your reaction relates to your core belief around money. If you cannot be happy for others who are financially thriving, then you have a money block and you will not thrive. You cannot speak negatively about someone (even someone you don’t know) and expect to have good things happen. Your reaction has nothing to do with the other person’s money and everything to do with your poverty mindset, the “why don’t I have money” mindset. If you were offered a 7-figure income as the CEO of a nonprofit organization that could change the world, would you turn it down? Of course not. That may sound harsh but I feel that it’s a message that everyone needs to hear.

When we are so quick to condemn people for making good money, it is an emotional attack (often from behind the safety of your computer) that was not caused by the other person; it was totally set in motion by you. And when you share a post, it has the same energy as if you initiated the post. As I was writing that sentence, this article on emotional attacks came into my inbox and it’s totally worth reading. Now that’s serendipity.

ThinkingSo what can you do to raise your money vibe and stop worrying about other people’s money?

    • Be grateful that others are making a good living doing the work that they love because they are giving you a road map to show that it can be done! Be grateful for those teachers, figure out what makes them successful, and then model what they do! Of course, make sure that they are a person of integrity. There are so many integrity money makers out there that it will not be difficult to find a mentor.
    • Work with these crystals: Carnelian, Citrine, Green Aventurine, Malachite and Pyrite.

Infused-7-graphic

  • And my personal favorite are these essential oils: Abundance, Gratitude, Oola Faith, Oola Field, Oola Finance all enhanced with Oola Grow! I love to diffuse Abundance and Gratitude (separately) and then I combine the 4 Oola oils in my hand and cup my palm over my nose and inhale the energy while reciting money vibe affirmations (e.g., I am financially free and working/contributing to society in a positive way). I do this 3 times per day until I no longer worry about money. It really works!

When you can be grateful for what you have and spend less time focusing on what other’s have, you will quickly see how things will change for the better. Thoughts create things … so make sure you have good thoughts!

Widen your perspective, receive more

Create a visionI was driving home after a beautiful walk along the river on my favorite campus (Michigan State) when I was scanning my SiriusXM radio and stopped on a channel. It was a talk about widening our containers, our perspective, so that we can receive more.

This message really struck a cord with me because all year (and for the past few years) I’ve been widening my perspective and experiencing the growing pains and joys that come with it. Widening your container or perspective is about looking at where you are in all aspects of your life (personal, spiritual, finance, work, health, etc.) and then reaching further to make it even better. It’s proactive rather than reactive. So if you are sick and tired of being sick and tired, do one thing today to improve your physical wellbeing and keep doing it. If you’re fed up with your boss/job, then take a step towards finding and doing your passion career and do it everyday. If you’re financially or spiritually broke, make a decision to learn what you need to do to become financially or spiritually abundant and keep doing it. Widening the container is not a one time event, it’s a process. The process is called life. Yet I find that most people (and I’ve been there at times) are satisfied with being dissatisfied. And that’s not right.

But here’s the glitch about that container: When we ask for more in our lives but don’t have the space to accommodate more, we end up pushing away the exact thing that we want. What???? We don’t do this intentionally; it’s a subconscious reaction built on a belief system that we’re not entitled to more than what we have. Everyday we push our desires and dreams away because we often go through life thinking small, not believing that we deserve more than what we have, and being taught to be grateful for what we have (and hence, don’t ask for more). Who came up with those crappy rules? Your life and what’s in it is exactly as big as your container and what you can fit in it. Small perspective creates a small container and a small life. A big container is filled with an expansive perspective of all that is possible and creates a big glorious life.

But in order to bring in something new, we may need to make space for it. So that usually means that something has to go. Most people don’t want to give up anything even if it’s something toxic; they just want to keep adding in more stuff in hopes of covering it up. I call this Toxic Hoarding. To make space, we need to eliminate what isn’t working for us anymore so that we can add what we really want.

You don’t have to give up anything huge or life altering. It could simply be that you spend less time on Facebook (which has been such a depressing energy drain for me lately), less time gossiping, less time watching reality TV, less time with energy draining people, friends and activities. It’s about learning to say no, staying focused on what you want in your life and avoiding a life that is on auto pilot with mind-numbing activities! Or maybe you need a life altering change so you start to reduce the number of hours working for a toxic job, you leave the toxic job knowing that when a space is created it must be filled, you walk away from a relationship that no longer serves you, or you start to do something for yourself everyday that promotes well-being, purpose and abundance in your life.

So what does your container look like? Is it big enough to hold all of your dreams and goals. If it is, you’re not dreaming big enough. If it’s not, start to clean out your container and start to stretch your dreams and goals beyond your comfort zone. You know that I’m all about tools to help with changing belief systems and supporting change. So here are my top 5 picks:

What is it like to be your Guardian Angel?

Quick … what is the first thought that came into your mind when you read this title? Be honest and post it in the comment section below before you think about it too much.

Was it My Guardian Angel has it easy peasy because I’m so intuitive, open and willing to be guided. Or was it more like I need to give some battle pay to my Guardian Angel because even though I wish for many things, I subconsciously fear change and I dig my heals in the ground every step of the way.

We all have a guardian angel, and some of us have many. What do you think it is like to be your guardian angel? If you are like most people, did any of these words come to mind: difficult, challenging, stubborn, won’t listen, won’t move? For years, I know that I was a difficult subject for my guardian angels. I have several guardian angels, each have names, and many are animals. They have come to me at various times over the years through dreams or by having their name/message come into my mind. When that happens, I know they were talking loudly to get my attention. Guardian angels generally talk softly to us … in whispers. And if we can tune out the chaos that surrounds us, settle down into some quiet time, and talk to them, you will be amazed at what guidance you receive.

If we listen to our guardian angels:

  • we would have peace
  • we would have perfect guidance at all times
  • we would be in the right place, the right job, the right relationships at the right time (check out this great article from Doreen Virtue on How to Meet your Soulmate’s Guardian Angels)
  • we would have a smoother life and would handle bumps and roadblocks with more faith and grace
  • we would have balanced and vital physical and emotional health
  • we would have courage to take a leap of faith and know that all would be well
  • and we would have faith in knowing that no matter what storm you are in, sunshine is just on the other side

When we don’t listen to our guardian angels:

  • we are stressed
  • we are physically and emotionally ill
  • we are question every decision
  • we hold ourselves back from change
  • we talk ourselves out of that perfect job, home, relationship
  • we question everything
  • and we go through life with fear and uncertainty

Now which life would you rather lead? One with guardian angel guidance or not?

Several years ago, after I became an Integrated Energy Therapy Master- Instructor (which is all about angelic healing), I found myself talking to angels all of the time. When I travel, I talk to Archangel Michael for protection and Archangel Gabriel to get me easily to where I need to be. There are dozens of angels that I frequently converse with, even starting the day by asking What would you like me to do today? And when I give myself even just a minute to close my eyes, breathe deeply, and listen … I always get an answer.

This is one of many angel oracle decks that I work with on a daily basis.

Since doing this, my life has been divinely guided. And while everything is not perfect and rosey 24/7 (because sometimes I fall back into the pattern of not listening), I can say that when I talk to my guardian angels, listen for their guidance and heed it, life is so much better and I have little, if any, fear.

So how to the angels talk to me? It comes to me as:

  • a thought that crosses my mind
  • an idea to do or create something
  • an image of a person, pet or place
  • a definitive yes or no in my mind when I ask a question
  • a strong feeling in my body (usually my stomach) when I meet someone or I’m asked to do something
  • seeing outward messages (like license plates, business signs, formations in the clouds, pennies or feathers on the ground)
  • through working with oracle card decks
  • and through this divine oil blend from Young Living called White Angelica

White AngelicaIf you wonder who your guardian angels are, simply ask and then get quiet to hear the answer. You won’t lose anything by talking to your angels and you can do it privately. What do you have to lose?
