Back-to-School Wellness Blends
blends.jpg

Going back to school in the fall is usually the time when the kids start bringing home different viruses. Besides hand washing, eating balance meals and getting enough sleep, I also incorporate essential oils into promoting wellness with the girls. Below are a few of my favorite wellness essential oil blends used for immune support and help with a cold or flu.

You can mix any of the blends in a 10 ml roller bottle with a carrier oil, I prefer fractionated coconut oil. My favorite coconut oil is found here and roller bottles here on Amazon. I am more conservative than others with dilution amounts for essential oils. They are more powerful than herbs and a little goes a long way. 

If you have children under the age of 6, please do your research on dilution rates. Use caution when using oils such as eucalyptus and peppermint in children under the age of 6.

25 Ways to Raise Your Vibration
IMG_1495.JPG

Everything is made up of energy and the rate at which the atoms and sub-particles of an object vibrate is the vibration frequency. A healthy human body vibrates between 62 and 68 MHz (megahertz). The higher the vibration, the better we feel and the healthier we are. The lower the vibration, the heavier the energy and the more down we feel. Self-defeating thoughts, fear, poor diet, environment, etc. all lead to lowering our vibration.

Here are some ways to start raising your vibration. It may seem like a lot to work on, but even taking on one thing will often create a snowball effect to continue making positive changes.

1. Positive self-affirmations are huge to start feeling better. A book I recommend reading is Mirror Work by Louise Hay. It is a little awkward at first, looking at the person in the mirror and going through the exercises. But, I began to feel compassion and love toward myself.

2. Watch your thoughts. Our thoughts create our entire world! The more positive thoughts you have, you will manifest more of the same into your life. Work on becoming aware of your thoughts. When you start thinking negatively, choose again and focus on the positive.

3.  Meditation helps raise our vibrations. Try to do it daily, even if it is only for a few minutes at a time.

4. Do something you love every day! Make a list of everything that brings you joy and choose one to do each day.

5.  Writing in a journal works to release stuck emotions.

6. Open your heart and feel grateful for everything around you. It is truly life-changing. A gratitude journal is a great place to start.

7. Eat foods closest to the source. They have the highest vibration frequency.

8. Drink lots of water.

9. Breathe! Practice working on breathing through your diaphragm (belly breathing) and not your chest.

10. Smoking, caffeine and alcohol can all lower your vibration.

11. Use essential oils. Some of the highest vibrating oils are rose, helichrysum, lavender, frankincense and melissa. Rose oil vibrates at 320 MHz! Wearing them and diffusing oils are ways to benefit from them.

12. Epsom salt baths help detox the body and the energetic field.

13. Get enough sleep. Sleep helps to renew us physically and spiritually.

14. Cleanse your house energetically. I use sage or palo santo wood. I recommend doing this monthly. If you have a space where you can't burn these, such as an office, I recommend diffusing sage/palo santo oil or even creating a room spray.

15. Keep your house clean and remove clutter.

16. Have energy work done to help clear energetic blockages.

17. Have a massage. Massages help release toxins in the body and get our energy moving.

18. Exercise. This helps get our energy moving and helps us feel better physically and emotionally.

19. Get in the sun! Open your windows or get outdoors. The sun can help break up blocked  energy.

20. Become aware of the toxins in your home including cleaning products and beauty products. We slather hundreds of chemicals on our bodies daily. Our skin is our biggest organ and absorbs everything we put on it.

21. Forgive: Work on forgiving yourself and others. I try to remember that everything that happens to me is a lesson and an opportunity for growth.

22. Keep crystals and stones in your home, in your pocket or on jewelry.

23. Notice who you are spending your time with. Do they uplift you or bring you down?

24. Be kind to others and give back.

25. Be cautious of the shows, books, internet, etc. that influence your life.

I hope some of these suggestions can help or maybe add to some of what you are already doing.

Love + Light,
Megan

Finding Your Joy

Hello! I thought Mother's Day weekend is a perfect time to talk about a common thread I see in a lot of women who come see me, and that is how much they are running on empty. Many times, as women, we give and give and often do little to take care of ourselves or do things that bring us joy. As a result, we feel tired and unhappy. A lot of times these women feel guilty about putting themselves first and often forget what what it is that even makes them happy. But, how can we give to others with an empty cup. We must first give to ourselves. It is time to start taking care of yourself and loving yourself. 

Awhile back, I made a list of everything that I enjoy doing or could do for myself that made me happy. After the list was completed, I made it a goal to do at least one thing on the list per day for myself. Now, many of them have become part of my daily or weekly schedule. I know life can be stressful with kids, family, after school activities, work, etc.. But, it is so important to do these to help raise your energy and find inner joy.

Get comfy in a quiet space, light a candle and take a few deep breaths. Start to think about all the things you like to do that make you happy and feel alive. Include even the little things that make you smile. 

Here is my list that I keep in my journal:

Since creating this list, there are so many other things I can think of to include. It shows me that the more I do for myself, the more happiness I see around me.

Sometimes You Just Don't Feel Good

Since getting the flu a couple weeks ago, I have been feeling a little tired, down and disconnected with people, my business and myself. I think we all go through periods in our lives of feeling on top of the world and periods of feeling just not right, it's called life.

I believe even little things can disrupt our energy and throw us off a bit. It could be an illness, fight with a loved one, car or home repairs, finances, work, etc. All these life events that come along can bring us off track and we wonder how we can get back on.

It is important to acknowledge the feelings and be present with them. Allow the frustration, blues or whatever emotion you are experiencing to come up. Let it surface and then allow it to move through you without resistance. Don't beat yourself up for thinking you should be feeling a certain way.

Remember to rest and take care of yourself. Say no to doing things that don't feel good to you. Try to meditate for relaxation or have energy work done to help relax and remove blockages. Nourish your body with natural foods and water.

Do something daily that feeds your soul and brings you joy. Take a bath, read a book, go for a walk, draw, garden, drink tea or anything else that makes you feel connected and happy.

Try to journal as a way to get your thoughts out. I am surprised sometimes at what some of the underlying thoughts and beliefs are that arise during writing. I also do a nightly gratitude journal by writing down 10 things that I am truly grateful for and why.

Surround yourself with loving and upbeat people. And, try to stay off social media as much as you can during this time. Sometimes other people's drama can feed into our own.

Most important, remember you are never alone. Ask for guidance from God, your guides or whoever else you feel connected to. Trust you will be guided and watch for signs. Remember, this too shall pass.
