Season of Autumn 🍂 Shows us ‘how to embrace change’

As the autumn season sets in, so does some beautiful changes. It’s a time when colours change, moods change, and weather changes.

All the leaves from the trees and plants change into multi-coloured works of art and fall away. It creates bare, and vulnerable branches, revealing the true scenery underneath.

It also represents a beautiful cycle of loss, regeneration and regrowth once the spring season comes around. By doing so shows us how to embrace change.

The dead leaves and branches on the ground disintegrate and turn into part of the soil, which are used as seeds and fertiliser later once the cold welcomes the warmer weather.

Many people love this season because of its romantic aspect.  And I am one of them.

Larch Valley Moraine Lake area Alberta Canada.

Larch Valley, Moraine Lake Alberta Canada.
Valley of the Ten Peaks

I was privileged enough to take a vacation in the Rocky Mountains in Alberta Canada during the fall of 2016. The main reason for visiting during fall, was to be able to witness the changing colours of the trees.

Morants Curve.
Bow Valley Parkway from Castle Mountain chalets to Lake Louise.

Here are 15 reasons why autumn is one of the greatest seasons ever.

  1. The trees change colour and look really pretty – yes with the changes in temperature you will notice the leaves starting to turn a beautiful orange and yellow welcoming the changing season.
  2. The ground along streets and parks, positivity gleam with autumn flare – of a night the city lights gleam against the ground and any fallen leaves making for a spectacular view as you walk along with friends.
  3. It seems like the world becomes more atmospheric – due to the beautiful changes you may feel like the world has a wonderful atmospheric feel and aura about it.
  4. There are plenty of leaves to kick – because of the falling leaves, it gives you more reason to have fun with friends kicking the leaves up in the air.
  5. There are also plenty of leaves to jump into – many people love making leaf piles and falling into them. It is great fun. Even in my 50’s I still love doing this.
  6. There are plenty of conkers to smash – Conkers fall off the trees and there are plenty around, making it the perfect smashing season. Also good to bring into the house, to keep the spiders 🕷 away.
  7. It’s the season for the best rainy weather – during the autumn season, it gives you a chance to dance in the rain. Although I don’t need this excuse. 😂
  8. Mornings are golden and may be misty – the autumn mornings bring a wonderful misty feel that is quiet and alluring for morning walkers.
  9. You can enjoy autumn season flavours with pumpkin spiced lattes and other pumpkin-flavoured food – pumpkin flavours are always a favourite for everyone, and with the changing season, you can really taste new and exciting things that are perfect for everyone to enjoy!
  10. You can enjoy slow-cooked foods, hot pudding and hot coffee than any other season – in your quiet time you can sit back, relax and unwind with your comfort foods – yum!.
  11. You get to wear some fashionable warmer clothes – with the onset of the cooler weather the warmer fashion pieces come out to play with plenty of style.
  12. You can enjoy all the seasonal TV shows – during autumn there are many favourite TV shows that always come around each year that will get you hooked.
  13. Enjoy a candlelit bath and add a romantic feel to your home and relationship – autumn is the time for romance to flare so why not set into motion some extra touches to make your evening extra special.
  14. You know that Christmas is around the corner – winter is never far away when the autumn season comes around and the feeling of excitement starts to flare up within you!
  15. With the changeover in daylight saving you can enjoy a whole new extra hour – with daylight savings coming to an end you can do more things with the extra hour that you will gain.

I hope you like Autumn as much as I do. 🍂

The importance of Living a life that MATTERS.

 

I wanted to share this with you all.

The three lines which resonate with me are ~

»What will matter is not your success, but your SIGNIFICANCE

»What will matter is not what you learned, but what you TAUGHT.

»What will matter is every act of integrity, compassion, courage or sacrifice that ENRICHED, EMPOWERED OR ENCOURAGED others to emulate your example.

»What will matter is not your competence, but your CHARACTER.

Remember that living a life that matters doesn’t happen by accident, it happens by choice.

Meet my adopted Orangutans Rocky and Rickina.

I want to introduce you to, my adopted Orangutans Rocky and Rickina.

Its a week ago since I adopted these rather cute guys, and it’s a decision that I will never regret making. It’s not only about making a difference in this world with human beings, but it’s also about the impact you can have on the entire universe, which includes the animal kingdom.

I’m personally a lover of all animals, and this was the perfect opportunity to adopt Rocky and Rickina.

Check out the project below to see the fantastic work they do, to rehabilitate these orphans back into the wild.

https://www.orangutan.org.au/

Heres a Little Information about my adoptees.

2AA97162-DF83-426A-A077-6B01B88396F1

My donation of £14 a month, goes towards providing care for their needs as well as all the infants at the care centre to ensure they continue to grow as healthy as possible before hopefully being released back into the Wild.

Rocky and Rickinas care includes 24 hour staff care and veterinary care, food, enrichment and of course, forest school where they learn all those orangutan skills which would have be provided by their mummy.

Why DōTERRA as a business opportunity?

I’m not the kind of person to talk about money, but if you’re interested in what dōTERRA Essential Oils can do for you as a business, this is where you can learn more.

I truly, honestly believe that as far as a network marketing company, you will not find a better compensation plan for people that want to pursue this as a business.

Why? Because dōTERRA commissions INCREASE as your team grows deeper. You make 2% on your first level, but you can make 7% on your 7th level. Why is this significant?

-1- Because as your business develops and grows, and your team grows, you will likely have more people on those lower levels meaning more income for you with the SAME number of people as if it was done like most network marketing companies where your highest commission are on your first level.

AND

-2- This encourages you to build your team deep. You add people vertically instead of horizontally. Your teammates also benefit from the downline, they make more money, everyone does better, and retention is stronger! Everyone wins! For an altruistic personality like me, I love that dōTERRA encourages me financially to help my entire team succeed. This is what encourages me to help and support my team to succeed.

doTERRA Wellness Advocates make money 5 ways:

-1- Retail

-2- Unilevel Commissions

-3- Power of 3 Bonuses

-4- Fast Start Bonuses and

-5- Leadership Pool Shares.

While I won’t go over each of those, I am happy to explain it to anyone that would like. Just contact me! In the mean time, here is where you can find the full dōTERRA Compensation Plan:

http://media.doterra.com/us/en/flyers/compensation-plan.pdf

So what are real dōTERRA Wellness Advocates actually making? It’s not that cut and dry. The vast majority of dōTERRA members are just in it, to use and love their oils, so when looking at the number that succeed in creating supplementary or even replacement income, it’s important to keep that in mind. Here’s what dōTERRA has to say:

For the full story on this, please check out the full Income Disclosure Statement here: http://media.doterra.com/us/en/flyers/opportunity-and-earning-disclosure-summary.pdf

For those actually pursuing the business, it is absolutely possible to make money. I personally know several people that have made it to the higher leadership ranks and are making real money. Will you make money? As with any business, it depends a lot on the time and effort you put in. Ideally at least 10 hours a week to begin with.

I always recommend that people get into dōTERRA because they want to use Essential Oils and natural solutions for their families needs. It’s important that you end up living and breathing the oils.

From spiritual to physical, emotional to environmental…these gorgeous oils will cover all your needs.💧🍃

My first goal was to make enough to cover the products I was using. My second has been to build a residual income base.

I have a strong ‘why’ and I’m putting a great deal time and effort into sharing dōTERRA.

So far, I have been able to reach my goals, and I can only see myself going up from here as I share something I LOVE, I believe in, and I’m passionate about sharing! Will you join me?

As soon as you purchase you get access to my private education, resources and our oils Tribe! I will mentor and support you during your time with me.

Why not tell a friend or more who needs support, balance and healing, and who would  also like to have a business in Essential Oils.

How to deal with Negative Emotions.

We, as Human beings are incredibly emotional creatures. While it’s impossible to deny or ignore this basic fact of what it means to be human, you can learn how to confront your emotions with wisdom and maturity.

For personal and professional relationships to flourish, negative emotions should be handled carefully, so that a solid foundation of mutual trust and respect can be built.

So how exactly do you responsibly deal with your negative emotions?

1. Look Honestly at Yourself
Justifying or rationalising negative emotions won’t serve you well. While it may be difficult to do in the heat of the moment, you need to look at how you are reacting to a situation with total honesty.

Typically, people are unable to acknowledge that their behaviour was improper. They would rather justify their anger, fear, hatred, pride, stubbornness, and resentment than acknowledge that it does not serve them or others. Hanging on to these negative emotions only tend to ‘eat you up inside’ and you find you’re stuck in that particular situation and have difficulty moving on from it.

Step back from this stubborn desire to be right, and notice how your emotional responses are affecting those around you.

2. Communicate Constructively
The expression of negative emotions is the hallmark of the inability to communicate maturely. If events occur that trigger your negative emotions, you need to reflect, ponder, and explore what is at the root of that outburst. If another person’s behaviour was inappropriate, you need to find a way to communicate that to them in a constructive manner. Dumping on other people is destructive.

You could say that self-honesty is about communicating with yourself, and the next step is being able to say what needs to be said to others. If you can do that, you gain tremendous respect.

Just to acknowledge, “Hey, I was out of ‘balance’ or ‘out of order’ the other day,” goes a long way. Maybe you could throw a “sorry” in at the end of that, or not. It doesn’t have to be long, drawn out, melodramatic, and emotional. Just a simple acknowledgement is usually quite sufficient and deeply appreciated. Saying sorry means you are the ‘bigger person’ in regards to maturity.  Anyone that has the ability to say sorry to me, has my upmost respect. Sadly, not everyone can do this simple thing. This is something we need to realise.

3. Find a Vent
Stuffing your emotions is no way to deal with them. You need to respect your physiology. If you feel like exploding or crumbling, then you may well need to do that. You just need to find channels to do it properly. This will look different for different people. Some people may need to just take a walk or a shower, perhaps get a good night’s sleep, or exercise to blow off steam. You just need to find what works for you. Think about what you are going to say rationally, I know this is hard in the ‘heat of the moment’ and I can honestly say that I’ve been guilty of venting my emotions and then after the deed is done, totally regret what came out of mouth. You have to remember once those words are said, you can’t take them back. Even if you didn’t mean them at the time, the recipient will always remember those hurtful words. I’ve recently had some experience of this, where someone close to me, said something very hurtful. I’m still trying to deal with this issue even 8 months after the event.

A word of caution, though: don’t overindulge. It’s one thing to let it out. It’s another thing to try to put out the fire by fanning the flame. Excessive venting (catharsis) feeds negative emotions. Talking through an issue with others can be helpful, but it can easily lead to gossip, which is destructive.

A very powerful technique is to just lie down, close your eyes, and allow your awareness to feel into your body. You may feel like thrashing, you may feel a tightness in your chest, or a headache. Just be with it. If it needs to unravel through movement or sound, so be it. But often at times, just allowing yourself to lie there and feel it is quite sufficient. This is, incidentally, a very effective technique to get to sleep at night. You don’t need to necessarily name it, just feel it.

4. Practice Self-Care
Often at times negative emotions are the byproduct of not taking care of your body. It is as if negative energy builds up in your heart, your mind, and physiology over time. When that’s the case, it comes out eventually. With proper self-care, your world view can take on a whole new quality.

I’m very good at ‘brushing stuff under the carpet’, or ‘putting it away in a box inside of me’. The only downside to doing this is, you never deal with that particular issue at the time, and sometime later when you’re least expecting it, all those negative emotions coming flooding back. And they’ll be still as raw and as strong as the day you were first confronted with them.

Self-care can include a regular massage, exercise, proper diet, and proper meditation. It is amazing how little exercise is required to make a big difference. Even 15 or 20 minutes a few times a week in the gym can do the trick.

Studies have shown, that being surrounded by trees is essential to alleviating negative emotions. So go hug the first tree that you come across. I do this, as often as I can. It’s quite liberating.

Also, getting out into the fresh air and out into countryside have a profound affect on our health and well-being. Being surrounded by nature, brings a grounding and calming affect to our mental state. On a personal level, I found this to be true on many an occasion. If I’m ever feeling those negative emotions, the first place I head to is the sea. Here, I find solace watching the waves ebb backwards and forwards, listening to the waves crashing onto the beach,

Implementing these four simple techniques for managing negative emotions will have a huge effect on your personal health and happiness.

Allowing negative emotions to dictate your actions can have disastrous consequences, in how you feel and how you interact with those around you on a daily basis. Investing in your emotional well-being is like having a savings account that accrues over time.

While we may not be able to retire our negative emotions, we can learn to address them with wisdom and maturity by remembering these four points.

Later, I will explore with you how to use essential oils with negative emotions.

If you have any thoughts on this. I would love for you to leave me a comment.

Why you should substitute household chemical products for Essential oils.

How many chemicals have you come into contact with today? 10, 20? A hundred? Maybe even hundreds? There are over 80,000 chemicals used in the U.K. and worldwide  and not even 10% have actually been tested for their safety. Frightening don’t you think?

And let’s not be cheeky here. There’s inevitably someone that will read an article like this and say, “Chemicals aren’t harmful. Don’t you know that water is a chemical formula?” Yes, I do. I took loads of biology and chemistry in school and that kind of chemical is not what I’m referring to.

I’m talking about the synthetic kind- the kind mixed up in a laboratory. The potentially harmful (and especially the proven-to-be-harmful) chemicals that we find ourselves bombarded with on a day to day basis.

These chemicals fuel the fire of chronic issues that are becoming more and more common, such as: hormone disruption, adrenal fatigue, low energy, weight loss resistance, autoimmune conditions, inability to focus, low productivity and performance – even cancer! Yes, there are still carcinogens in products that many people come into contact with daily.

Household chemicals and cleaners are a primary exposure to toxins and chemicals that are completely avoidable.  In fact, this is one of the reasons why indoor air quality can be 10 times more polluted than the air outside.

This is why my family makes it a priority to use natural cleaners as much as possible. For a fresh, invigorating smell without the hormone disruption that comes from synthetic fragrances and chemicals, I recommend cleaning with essential oils.

You could create a gorgeous garden of hydrangeas and beautiful flowers and have fresh cut arrangements on your kitchen table daily- but if you’re like me, you don’t have time for that.

So a great way to get that fresh “signature aroma” in your home is to start cleaning with essential oils.

Besides their intoxicating aroma, essential oils are extremely capable of destroying microbes (viruses, bacteria and fungi). They are obtained from different parts of plants including leaves, flowers, petals, roots, woods, barks, seeds and also the peels of different fruits. All of these plant essences are well recognised for their antimicrobial qualities.

The other reason you should start cleaning with essential oils is because it’s beneficial to your health! If you’re using conventional products with harmful, hormone disrupting chemicals you can totally get rid of them by making your own cleaners with essential oils.

The other thing is that essential oils are potent antioxidants with versatile health benefits. As you’re cleaning your home, you’ll be inhaling the aroma of these powerful drops. You can increase your energy, improve circulation, support respiratory health, bust bacteria, boost your immune system, improve your mood, support your hormones and the list goes on! All by cleaning with essential oils.

I don’t know about you, but if you’ve looked at the prices on natural cleaners in health food stores, they can get pricey. Six or £7 for a bottle is not uncommon. You can get a lot of mileage from just a few bottles of pure essential oil and inexpensive supplies like a glass spray bottle, water and vinegar.

Not only can you make household cleaners (and really you only need a few to cover all the bases), but you can also have those bottles of essential oil for other uses.

Can you say versatility?

The same Lemon Essential Oil that can be used to scrub out the sink is also perfect to add to your water bottle throughout the day to increase hydration and gently stimulate the lymphatic system to flush toxins.

Score! How’s that for killing 2 birds with one stone? And with essential oils it’s like killing a dozen birds with one stone- they just have so many uses!

To be honest, there is no magic formula to choosing the best essential oils for cleaning. Everyone has their own favourites. It all depends on which scent you enjoy the most or what type of cleaning you intend to do.

Even though I will be listing some essential oils that I personally enjoy, feel free to experiment and try what resonates with you. Just make sure that you choose oils that are pure and potent.

I call it “Mr. Clean.” Lemon oil carries all the nutritional and cleansing benefits of the fruit it is extracted from. When diffused it purifies the air, clearing the room of pathogens. It’s also great for getting rid of bad smells and infusing a fresh, invigorating aroma.

Lemon has a bright and beautiful scent which is why it’s always a key ingredient in my bathroom and kitchen cleaners. I also use it when cleaning countertops, dishes (it gets rid of stuck on grease), cutting boards (it gets rid of the smell of onions or garlic), grout, rubbish disposal, laundry, water storage containers and bottles.

It’s also perfect for removing sticky residues and works well as a furniture polish. It blends well with other citrus oils like Wild Orange, Lime and Bergamot and I like to add Melaleuca (aka Tea Tree Oil) for even more powerful antibacterial effects.

The aroma of peppermint essential oil is refreshingly minty. It’s actually known for improving the ability to focus and concentrate. So, as you’re working on cleaning the house you can stay focused and get the job done!

Some good news for people suffering from Arachnophobia (fear of spiders) like me, peppermint oil is also a natural insect repellent and pesticide (I mean, seriously. Who doesn’t suffer from Arachnophobia ?).  It is one of the best essential oils in the business of battling insects.

Wild orange is fantastic for blending with peppermint, too. It’s uplifting and boosts your mood, and insects hate citrus oils so it helps increase the repellant power. So when those pesky fruit flies are making the rounds in your kitchen, put some peppermint and wild orange in a diffuser and turn that bad boy on high!

You can also make a bug busting spray with peppermint and spray into the corners of the room. Anywhere that spiders may be tempted to make a web. This is also a great strategy for a newly constructed home.

Since insects get trapped inside once the walls are built they often start creeping and crawling around once you’ve moved in. No thank you! Spray some peppermint and enjoy your new home without those 6-legged visitors.

Obtained from the Australian Melaleuca bushes, Melaleuca (or Tea Tree Oil) is antiseptic, antifungal and antibacterial in nature. This is my go-to oil for getting rid of mould and mildew and trust me, it does a very good job!

Tea tree oil has a purifying scent and you can apply it to all your cleaning accessories. You can add just a few drops of it to your bucket of water before mopping your floor. You will notice its distinctive aroma in the entire room. It also boosts the immune system. I just love that 1-2 punch that you get from using essential oils!

Spraying Melaleuca in the shower or bathtub to prevent mould and mildew is also a great idea. It has powerful anti-fungal properties. I also like to include this as an ingredient in my all purpose cleaners because it’s so good at fighting bacteria.

I love the smell of freshly washed clothes. Sometimes I like folding them. But I love smelling them more.

I would add fabric softener or dryer sheets to the dryer. This was after I had washed my clothes with some liquid detergent full of synthetic, hormone disrupting fragrances. If you’re still using conventional detergent, it’s okay. I used to as wel! You can make a change.

I now use a completely clean and clear laundry detergent called Eco. And when I dry my clothes, I skip the dryer sheet and use Wool Dryer Balls instead. These help to decrease the drying time for my clothes, reduce static cling and when I add drops of lavender to each ball it infuses the laundry with a divine freshness that you just can’t replicate in any other way.

I open the dryer and it smells like a lavender field. That’s just one way I use essential oils in the laundry.

If I have a particularly funky set of clothes to wash- like one when of the kids had an accident or we’re talking about funky gym clothes- I’ll also add a purifying, freshening oil like this one. It has a fresh, airy aroma and it’s great for getting bad smells out of clothes. A deep water soap with this essential oil can really do wonders!
