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?)
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.
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.
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.
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.
Today my Gratitude and Dump session became an I AM session. For those that know me, you know that was a stretch for me. The joy of feeling and seeing my faith and belief growth just from my I AM statements that were written with confidence. Years of the enemy’s bondages have been broken in my life and I get to use my experience, knowledge and understanding of blessing of Freedom to help other others be delivered into their Freedom too. My heart is full and overflowing with joy, love, and hope.
Anointing oils for today include Peace & Calming, Pine, Citronella, Peppermint, Eucalyptus Globulus, Trauma Life and Patchouli. I smelled them individually as I put them in the diffuser and applied to my body where I was led. Some of them, well, I didn’t take such a deep breath of. Others, oh my yum. However, as is always the case … with all of these in my ionic diffuser, the essence touches me from the top of my head all the way down to the bottoms of my feet and tips of my toes. I can feel the renewal and rejuvenation of my cells and inner being. I want to sit and savor the feeling while also being energized and excited to do what I am to do today. What a great, positive feeling. I am so grateful and highly favored and blessed with the life calling I was created for. In walking and living it, every day is a glorious day, even those growth spurts that sometimes bring the groans and moans of praise.
So, here’s the negative that the World is trying to burden and hold me down with:
Addiction, Argumentiveness, Being a Victim, Depression, Indecisiveness, Control, Moodiness, Scared, Wishy washy, Failure, Fear of Dependence, Restriction, Rigidity, Bondage, Panic, Shut down.
Glory to Glory, here’s the positive that I am being grown and expanded to new levels in:
Freedom, Wanted, Loveable, Peace, Fair, Inner strength, Alive, Focus, Clarity, Balance, Content, Blessed, Stable, Safe, Still, Direction, Unfoldment, Identity, Growth, Mobility, Open to New, Amusement, See big picture, Like self, Tranquility, Creative, Vibrantly Alive.
I am ever grateful for the tools I have learned and am continually learning to build up and edify my ability to walk in my greatest good for me at this time. As always, my special Garden of Eden that these essential oil tools form For my Such A Time As This uplift, encourage and motivate me to stand boldly and courageously doing what my day holds. Having the awareness of the enemy’s plans of bondage empower me to see it when its coming and immediately bind the negative and walk in the positive to grow and expand to new levels each moment of my day.
Here's a few of my Dump Session I AM's:
I am capable.
I am worthy.
I am loved.
I am redeemed.
I am blessed.
I am highly favored.
For me … It is an amazing I AM day today!!!
So, what tool or tools are you pulling out to do maintenance and fortify you For your Such A Time As This day today?
I adore it when you share. It allows me to celebrate with you, encourage you and cover with thanksgiving and praise as you do you to a new level.
I am ever passionate about Standing The Gap from where you are to where you can and want to be. (Trust me, it is the sweetest place to be.)
Today's inspiration comes from Psalm 30 (NCV)
Thanksgiving for Escaping Death
A psalm of David. A song for giving the Temple to the Lord.
I will praise you, Lord,
because you rescued me.
You did not let my enemies laugh at me.
Lord, my God, I prayed to you,
and you healed me.
You lifted me out of the grave;
you spared me from going down to the place of the dead.
Sing praises to the Lord, you who belong to him;
praise his holy name.
His anger lasts only a moment,
but his kindness lasts for a lifetime.
Crying may last for a night,
but joy comes in the morning.
When I felt safe, I said,
“I will never fear.”
Lord, in your kindness you made my mountain safe.
But when you turned away, I was frightened.
I called to you, Lord,
and asked you to have mercy on me.
I said, “What good will it do if I die
or if I go down to the grave?
Dust cannot praise you;
it cannot speak about your truth.
Lord, hear me and have mercy on me.
Lord, help me.”
You changed my sorrow into dancing.
You took away my clothes of sadness,
and clothed me in happiness.
I will sing to you and not be silent.
Lord, my God, I will praise you forever.
I don’t know about you but I know in my past, I have reverted to the toddler phase, the “do it myself” phase, and ended in places and situations I was never intended to be in.
Other times, I have come into agreement or allowed others to force their expectations and identities on me. I have been miserable working hard to succeed at always failing them and never measuring up no matter how hard I try because once I come near to meeting expectations the requirements are raised.
No matter what or how I got into the situation … it is written in the Word that God rescued David from death … thus God can and will rescue me from my current situation and from my past.
David prayed for healing and got it. That means any healing I want and need – mental, physical, emotional, and/or spiritual – is mine. I just must believe, repent, and receive.
That makes me want to shout and sing praises, to dance. It makes me walk with pep in my step.
My God loves me despite what I have done. When I ask forgiveness and forgive myself, my past choices are gone forever! Forgotten as though they never existed to Him. I must confess the same forgiveness over myself when I turn from my past.
Oh the freedom and joy that overflows when I break the bondage of my past and choose to walk in my Light, my calling, my freedom to be who I was created to be before the beginning of time.
When I am aligned and centered with God, I am in my safe place with no worry or fear. When I stray outside of God’s calling on my life … fear, doubt, worry, and so much more heaviness and misery enter that were never a part of my greater good.
This is an alert to break the bondages that I have come in agreement with. To ask forgiveness and forgive myself for “doing it my way” and realign.
With great freedom and joy, I proclaim this affirmation over me. I say it is so. I believe it and receive it.
