Along my journey with essential oils, I have done a good amount of research. One book that has helped me understand the physical and emotional effects of the oils is the "Essential Oils Pocket Reference" by Life Sciences Publishing. It goes deeply into the molecular makeup of the oils and the absorption into the body on the cellular level. Additionally, it explains how inhaling the oils effects the olfactory bulb in the nasal passage, which then sends impulses to the limbic portion of the brain and the hypothalamus (the limbic system deals with emotions, memories, and stimulation, and the hypothalamus coordinates the autonomic nervous system and the activity of the pituitary gland).
This blog is my weight loss journey, yes, but also has turned out to be about life in general. The weight loss started off strong, but my emotional mess has caused me to yo-yo around for the past couple of months. I've made some posts about "a friend", and some other vague references, but the mess is me. My relationship of 3 1/2 years is ending. My plan to be with this man for the rest of my life (including moving from another state to be with him, working on his properties, working at his business, and giving away all my furniture and appliances to blend lives with him) is no longer the plan. The new plan is work, buy furniture, buy appliances, and figure out where I'm going to live. I'm totally relying on God to give me clear signs. Open the doors I am to walk through, close the doors I am not to walk through. That's my current deal.
I'm having the hardest time with this betrayal. I'm really a mellow person, and I have walked on eggshells so much in the past 3 years, trying to make things better for him. Being the housemaid, always trying to be kind and loving. It all fell on "deaf ears", so to speak. Whoever this other gal is...she must be freaking spectacular...but then again...is she really waiting in line to come be the housemaid?
So anyway, with all this going on, I need some help. I've done way to much sitting around being depressed and feeling "not good enough". I have to combat those feelings because I know darn well I'm good enough. Shame on him for not relishing that fact. Shame on him for causing me hurt and tears. Shame on him for letting me believe I would always live in the house I turned into a home.
Enter some new oil blends into my life! On my Essential Rewards order this month, I got "White Angelica" and "Into The Future". White Angelica increases and strengthens the aura around the body to bring a renewed sense of strength and protection, creating a feeling of wholeness in the realm of one's own spirituality. It's frequency neutralizes negative energy and gives a feeling of security. Into The Future helps one leave the past behind in order to progress with vision and excitement. So many times we find ourselves settling for mediocrity and sacrificing our own potential and success because of the fear of the unknown and the future. This blend inspires determination and a pioneering spirit and creates a strong emotional feeling of being able to reach one's potential.

These oils are going to be on me daily for awhile. This transition time is going to last a bit....I have so many things I have to purchase for my next home, and it is going to take time. If you're a praying person, I could use some! If you're not a praying person, send those good vibes my way! Much love to you all!
