Essential Oils & Crystals for a Positive Mindset

Recently my essential oil group spent a month focusing on how to shift from a negative to a positive mindset. Our inner feelings and beliefs dominate our mindset. When we can identify the underlying feeling or belief, we can then start the shift from a negative to positive mindset.

These are some of our favorite essential oils and crystals to help us shift.

Shifting from overwhelm to motivated

We live in a world with a lot of noise and information overload. It can be so much that we feel smothered and weighed down which can create apathy and numbness. These are our favorites:

  • Magnify Your Purpose blend = Overwhelm can set in when you have lost your purpose. Smell this oil and let it get you back on track with your purpose.
  • Motivation blend = This was a team favorite and the name says it all! When you smell it or diffuse it, you will be amazed at what you get done.
  • Sacred Mountain blend = When you can calm and ground yourself, you can begin to re-energize and move out of the mindset of overwhelm.
  • Crystals I love for motivation are Celestite (helps calm when overwhelmed), Clear Quartz (amplifies your energy field simply by holding it) and Stellar Beam (Dog Tooth) Calcite (very high vibrational energy to get moving).

Shifting from worry & fear to strength & courage

Worry and fear are feelings of scarcity, lack, disempowerment, panic, and despair. All you are doing is traumatizing yourself about something in the future that has not and likely will not happen. Worry stores in the stomach as powerlessness and fear stores in the kidneys. These emotions will lower you in to a frequency where dis-ease can take root. So don’t go there! These are our favorites:

  • Valor blend = When we worry and are consumed with fear, we simply need to find our confidence and courage. Valor helps to shift your energy to get back on track.
  • Abundance blend = Abundance is an energy and mindset. It is about shifting to see all that you have in your life and that your glass is overflowing! When you see that, fear and worry melt away.
  • Present Time blend = When you are present, everything is perfect in that moment. Do not let your mindset get stuck in the past or worried and afraid of the future. This is a very calming blend that really helps to focus on being present.
  • Crystals I love for courage are Black Tourmaline (grounding and strength), Celestite (releases negative patterns of fear and worry) and Dumortierite (calming strength and courage).

Shifting from anger to forgiveness

Have you felt a lot of anger floating around in the air? Sometimes the anger that gets into our energy is actually not our own. But it still can still cause havoc in our body. Anger stores itself in our liver, and resentment in the spleen. When anger is not processed it can result in bitterness, intolerance, and settle into resentment … more toxic emotions for our poor body to deal with. These are our favorites:

  • Release blend = When you are ready to let go of toxic feelings and mindset. Topically apply over your liver and then deeply inhale it while saying “I release all negativity from body, mind and spirit”.
  • Forgiveness blend = As Mark Twain said, “”Forgiveness is the fragrance that the violet sheds on the heel that has crushed it.” Forgiveness is beautiful once you find it. When you smell this blend it can bring you into a higher awareness and vibrational frequency to the point where you can let go and move on. Topically apply over your heart and then deeply inhale while saying “I am thankful for life’s experiences and the lessons they teach.”
  • Humility blend = Humility is the step after forgiveness so that we can learn and transform. It keeps you sweet and strong no matter what is happening around you.
  • Crystals I love for forgiveness are Blue Lace Agate (calming), Rose Quartz (forgiving) and Rutilated Quartz (let go of the past hurts).

Shifting from loneliness to self-love

Did you know that the remedy to loneliness is self-love? Lack of self-love can come from unresolved grief and when grief is not processed and released it can lead to depression. When you are comfortable hanging out with yourself, your thoughts, and engaging in self-care and personal development during isolation, you are less likely to feel lonely. These are our favorites:

  • Frankincense = Simply smelling this oil can get your energy moving. It is my favorite when missing a person, pet or lifestyle, to restore faith, to ground and uplift. It is also soothing for moments of unworthiness and loneliness.
  • White Angelica blend = You will want to slather all over yourself (your pets). I call it the Wrapped-In-A-Warm-Blanket Oil and the All-Is-Well oil. It is like being wrapped in love. It feels protective so that you do not feel the need to isolate. I love to use it with abused and shelter pets.
  • Hope blend = Hope is a good start with when it comes to deep emotional healing. Because other than love, we all need hope. When you combine the energy of Melissa for those who are highly sensitive with the deep grounding and empowerment of Juniper, Myrrh and Black Spruce, you find Hope! It is my go-to for deep emotions that need to be released. It will help you keep moving forward one day at a time.
  • Crystals I love for self-love are Citrine (happy vibe crystal), Lepidolite (contains lithium to pull out of grief and sadness) and Rose Quartz (self-love).

And always remember … Change the way you look at things, and the things you look at change.

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.

My Sammy is now one of my guardian angels.
My Sammy is now one of my guardian angels.

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?

Five easy steps to juicy joy

Raise your hand if you are outrageously happy, jump out of bed each morning and shout “Hello World!”, perform work that you love, have healthy relationships, abundant health, feel good about money, and live your life from love and not fear? (Is that crickets I hear?). So do you want that joyful life, or do you want to stay as you are? (Cue the standing ovation!)

Do these 5 über easy steps everyday and you will easily shift to a juicy joyful path.

1.  Large order of gratitude with orange juice, please.

If you start each day with a glass of orange juice (which infuses your energy field with the sacral chakra color of orange to give you energy, vitality and creativity), then be sure to add a large side order of gratitude. Start each day writing down or mentally reciting 5-10 things that you are grateful for and it will absolutely change your vibration to one that is eager, expectant, and positive. Even better, create a Gratitude Journal so that months and years later you can look back and see your progress! When you go through your day, an attitude of gratitude will give you an eager/expectant/positive vibration that will begin to draw in things to make you feel even more eager/expectant/positive. That vibration will then overshadow what you typically look for (and receive) that are annoying throughout the day (i.e., gridlock traffic, energy vampires at work, unexpected deadlines, no money in the bank account until payday, etc.). Start your day off on the right foot … gratitude + juicy oranges to supercharge a juicy day!

2.  End your relationship with fear.

Humans operate from two primary and primal emotions: fear and love. Which controls you throughout the day? For most people, it is fear. We don’t do this intentionally. Our subconscious controls more of our thoughts, beliefs, and actions than we give it credit for. It also soaks up our surroundings like a sponge. When we look around us, things are frankly going bonkers these days. We’re in a massive energy shift, solar flares abound that can cause unexpected outbursts of anger, there’s endless violence, and we’re all feeling a bit off kilter. If you watch the news (CNN = Constantly Negative News), all you hear about are wars, mass shootings, abductions, financial worries, political collapses. Is nothing good anymore? No wonder most people operate from a place of fear. Here’s the trick to living a juicy joyful life … you need to start operating from a place of love and kick fear in patootie. Easier said than done? Not really. It’s time for you to breakup with fear.

Decide3.  Juice up your heart chakra.

Okay, so you’re concerned about how dial down the fear and dial up the love? So let me whisper this really deep secret on how to juice up your heart chakra and shine the love. You simply have to decide to do this. Our conscious mind is very powerful (despite that pesky micro-managing subconscious) and science is proving everyday that our intentions shape our world. So everyday, you must must must set an intention that you will go forth into the world with love. When you do this you will start to notice only those things that resonate with love, you will start to see more people/things/situation that resonate with love, you will respond to stressors with love, and that you will ooze love even to those people who you judgmentally believe don’t deserve it.

So turn off the news, go onto your social media pages and look for those heartwarming stories of people helping people, people helping animals, animals helping animals, and those pay-it-forward stories. What you focus on is what will present itself to you. You need to choose what you focus on, and only focus on good.

If you love crystals, grab those pink and green crystals and pile them onto your heart chakra in the middle of your chest. Even just 10 minutes a day lying with these crystals will open your heart chakra.

Recite affirmations that ooze love. Try these on for size:

  • I love and approve of myself just the way that I am.
  • I only see the good and love in everything.
  • I am surrounded by love and generosity everyday.

i only see the good and loveYou may feel uncomfortable at first, but just do it! Dial up the healing on your heart chakra and you will notice more things to love than fear in no time.

4.  One daily act of kindness to self, por favor.

When you do something kind for another, you feel good about it right? But when is the last time that you were kind to yourself? Everyday, without fail, you must be kind to yourself. So many people berate themselves (verbally or through their inner voice) and it wears down your energy and makes you vulnerable to negativity. Just image yourself as a three-year-child. Would you berate him/her the way that you berate yourself? Of course, not. There are so many ways simple ways for you to be kind to yourself everyday:

  • Start your day with that luxurious shower gel that you think you can’t afford (go for it, you’re worth it!) or pull out the cushy soft bath towels. Pamper yourself!
  • Give yourself a breakfast treat (maybe a special coffee, tea or green smoothie).
  • If you can have personal items in your workspace, have something that makes you smile. A photo of your loved ones, pets, a favorite crystal, a piece of art, fresh flowers, or a beautiful computer screen saver. I like to keep one of my aromatherapy crystal elixir sprays (like Air Smudge) in my desk and I spritz it whenever I need a boost.
  • Take 10 minutes everyday and go outside. Even if you work in a concrete jungle, go outside and breathe the air (hopefully not car fumes), let the sun shine on your face, and instantly distress.
  • At the end of the day, spend 10 minutes or more doing something just for YOU! Maybe this is quiet meditation, going for a walk, dancing like Jennifer Beals in Flashdance to some uplifting music, reading a book.

Air SmudgeEven if you have a demanding family or endless to-do list, it’s okay for you to take a few minutes every day to take care of yourself. Remember to live your life, not the life of other’s demands. If you don’t take care of yourself, who will?

5.  Ooze juiciness to others

And once you’ve consistently performed 1-4 every day faithfully (just like brushing your teeth), you will start to ooze your juicy joy to others naturally. And the one thing that we know about energy (and we are energy bodies) is that what we send out energetically goes to other people and comes back to us. So what do you want coming back to you? Juicy joy or vicious vampires? You will naturally resonate a joyful vibe that people will flock to you to bask in your joy. And when those around you are joyful, doesn’t that make for a better world?

So now I need you to pinky promise that you will do this, faithfully and joyfully, ever day; especially in these challenging energetic times. I promise that you will notice a shift and that all aspects of your life will begin to flow easier. So are you with me?
