What smells instantly take you back to a happy place?!?!

What smells instantly take you back to a happy place?!?!
Our minds are so powerful.  Be honest now, did you smell the snickerdoodles when you saw the above picture?

Can you smell the Cinnamon? Can you smell the Nutmeg? Can you smell the Stress Away? Yikes! Probably not but you can probably feel the "stress away" with the happy memories! 

I can smell it and have happy emotions released instantly because it triggers happy memories of family celebrations and special times with my mom.  

Snickerdoodles were a favorite of my parents and one of my grandpa's. But I must be honest ... I only like the SMELL of snickerdoodles, I really do NOT like the TASTE.  

Which makes me smile with memories of trying to eat them and like them when I was little out my love and desire to be like the ones I love so much.  

Who knows, maybe that's where all my elaborate facial expressions that my family gets a kick out of watching started!  (Can you relate with a smell you like but don't like the taste or texture?)

Our minds are so powerful that we don't have to have the cookies baking in our home or even have the actual cookie in our home to taste or smell it.

A powerful exercise I do in one of my sessions is to have you close your eyes and visualize a lemon, then I walk you through the process of feeling the texture of the skin, smelling the lemon when its cut open and squeezed and then actually tasting the lemon. 

 I always have so much fun watching your faces as I can tell who likes the smell and taste of lemon and who does not from the uniquely different expressions.

The science studies done on our olfactory senses or sense of smell extensively document the impact smell has in and on our lives.  

It helps to explain why my client sessions where we are breaking blocks from the past to move forward in freedom are effective and long lasting.  

This is why essential oils are an important tool in my Healthy Toolbox for myself, my family and my clients.

I keep a diffuser in my main living area (we each have one in our individual rooms too!) with a beautiful display rack of essential oils to be able to create unique blends or blends that transport me to Happy Memories or get me energized and motivated (or my loved ones when its chore day! LOL)  

Some people have a recipe box filled with favorite cooking recipes ... me, I have recipe BOXES of my family's favorite diffuser blends with memories noted to go with them.  Quirky? Yes.  

However, on those days where I need an extra boost or I just want to have some sweet memories of my mom or a walk in the forest ... well, diffusing can take me to higher levels and fill my heart and being.  

Bonus effect is, at least when you are using the brand I use, there are no toxic chemicals to cause adverse side effects or harm to our bodies AND they actually have a synergy effect in our body thus supporting and improving our health physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually.

This simple act of diffusing is very effective and supportive to my clients who are walking through intense health challenges, or those who are breaking free from addictions and the benefits and list goes on. 

The main core of my practice uses essences to break through the barriers and assist in resetting cellular DNA and memory patterns to aid in creating a healthy fight or flight for your life by releasing the things of the past that no longer suit who you are in such a time as this.  

I adore getting to be the facilitator and watching the transformations.  It blesses me to my core to help you break free from things that have held you in bondage and kept you from living life freely as you desire and yearn to.  

And that is why I adore sharing some of my different diffuser recipes that trigger happy memories or that get me motivated to Be my Greatest Me! 

So what is your favorite smell that takes you back to a happy place or time in your life? 

Share below, I adore trying new recipes!  

I am passionate about Standing The Gap from where you are to where you can and want to be!

Testimonial: From Insecurities to Confidence

I totally adore getting Testimonial shares like this ... you know my passion and years of ongoing research to support homeostasis especially using the mental and emotional to support the physical. 😁

Thanks Alana D for sharing!

Having extremely overwhelming emotions can be hard, so it's really nice when I have tools that make coping easy.⁣

Before this photo was taken I could feel my insecurities and fears creeping up. I could feel the muscles in my chest tightening. I felt like I was fighting my emotions, and they were winning. ⁣

Five minutes after this photo (and a lot of deep breaths), I felt confident, brave, and I was reminded of my inner strength. That tight feeling went away, replaced with empowerment and hope. ⁣

The truth is, I have way more control over my emotions than I let myself believe I do. We all do. Sometimes we just need to figure out how to remind ourselves of that.⁣

Anguish? Limbo? Obliterated? Sorcery?

Anguish? Limbo? Obliterated? Sorcery?
Our current social challenge is stirring up so many different feelings and emotions.  

For some, this is a time of Ecstacy. A time of being open and willing to accept the truth.
A time of trust. A time of being Divinely guided.
A time of Euphoria. A time of your head and heart being connected.
A time of growth and expansion of knowing and being a better you. 

For others, this is a time of Anguish.  A time of suffering. 
A time of Limbo. A time of waste. A time of no direction.  
A time of Obliteration. A time of loss of identity. A time of nothingness.
A time of sorcery.

As I have shared in the past, our body has an intricate alarm system that alerts us so we can come against the areas that are breached and take control. 

We are our own best advocates because we know and hear our body like no one else can.
Even better!  
Are you ready for this?

We 
get
 to
CHOOSE!!!

We get to choose life or choose death.  

We even have tools that we can use and master to help us succeed in everything thing we do.  

Today's video gives some tips on how to use one of the Tools in our Life Toolbox to help overcome the negative and firmly stand in the positive mental and emotional stance. 

This just makes me want to dance! 
(Which my dancing tends to bring laughter ... and in my books laughter is good especially when I'm laughing with you.)

I'm choosing to thrive during this time of fear hype and rights tampering decisions made by our leaders.
I'm choosing to live freely.
For me, this is a nesting time.  
A time to clean out the clutter. Time clutter, physical clutter, emotional clutter.  
It's a time of Freedom gain.  
It's a time of relationship restoration and restoring.
It's a time of honing and mastering current skills and new skills.
It's a time of nurtured growth.
And
I'm TOTALLY THRIVING and adoring helping others break free from the past and thriving themselves. 

How are you choosing to use and walk out this gift of "time out" that has been given to you? 
Post your comments, I adore hearing where you are at and how I can encourage and support you.

Great thing is … 

          Feelings are not TRUTH.     

                    Feelings are not LEADERS.  

                              Feelings are not to guide you.  


The Word is TRUTH.  

          The Word Leads.  

                    The Word will not fail you.  


Ever  grateful to have The Word as my life preserver while I am doing as The Word says and “Arise”ing, "Being Courageous" and most importantly "Doing" as the matter is mine and I get to exercise my authority and empower whichever troop of angels I choose.   


Today …

May He be glorified.  So Be It.

Don’t you just adore how when you seek where to go, that it takes you to a place in scripture that was written well before your time … but is just like it is written for exactly where you are at right now, today?  

Well, today is one of those days.  I’ve read this verse many times but today I had such an intense desire to dig in and dive deeper to see what was mine to get FOR SUCH A TIME AS THIS.   Sometimes, it just feels like a two-by-four right between the eyes.  Looking up the meaning of the words and the synonyms pulled it straight into and out of my gut.  Can you say “sucker punch”?  Before today I would have said that I have rarely if ever had anger, wrath or malice … BUT GOD …  It’s so easy to take a word at the meaning that you define it as in your head that fits with your life and keeps things comfortable and honorable.  However, progress does not come without refinement.   Refinement without the fire of truth.   I am ever grateful for the refiner’s fire.  I’m thankful to be refined and deal with this now rather than later.  To receive and live with my blessings now rather than never.
