What’s the first thing that comes to mind when you hear the words – Essential Oil?
What exactly is an essential oil?
Essential oils are mama natures defence mechanism for plants and cells. These powerful gifts of the earth have been used anciently throughout history for both physical and emotional support.
One of my most favourite resources ‘Emotions and Essential Oils; A Reference Guide for Emotional Healing’ states that essential oils support healing in five stages:
- Healing the physical body.
- Healing the heart.
- Releasing limiting beliefs.
- Increasing spiritual awareness and connection.
- Inspiring the fulfilment of our life’s purpose.
Throughout our life-time we are exposed to many emotional challenges and if left unattended we may tend to carry those feelings with us everywhere we go, either consciously or unconsciously. It is extremely important that we come face to face with what it is that we may be feeling, to allow our heart and soul to thrive.
As we grow and make our way through our precious life, we may lose sight of the most important person in our life, OUR SELF.
It is from this space of self-love and soul connection that we can truly allow our self to expand and flourish. It is from this space that we can release trapped emotions and invite positivity, heart and soul back in.
Devoting time each day for a personal self-love ceremony will nourish your heart and soul and bring balance and harmony within.
How to Create Your Self-Love Ceremony:
Grab your calender/diary/planner girlfriend and block out a time that suits you each day, even if it is just 2 minutes. Make this time a non-negotiable commitment, don’t let anything get between you and your time of self-love.
Dedicate a journal that you can write, draw, create anything that flows from your heart, don’t censor anything just allow everything and anything to pour onto the pages. Allow freedom, creativity and soul empower you.
Meditation is also a perfect way to connect with your inner goddess to release that which is not serving you. I recommend the gorgeous meditations by Tahlee from Sonescence, her meditones are pure delight. Bringing meditation or any mindfulness-based practice into your ceremony will enhance the benefits of your healing and allow you to connect with your heart and soul on a much deeper level.
