I have been having some rough days… last night and today was full of anxiety and strange feelings. I should have gone outside after all my morning meetings to be in nature. Being around plants and fresh air always help me. But I didn’t and I pretty much suffered through my day, until I pulled myself together and used some oils and chilled out!
Something to learn is to not let other people’s opinions ruin your day. I am slowly learning how to take care of myself, especially when someone’s opinion or the way they handled a situation doesn’t settle well. Everyone has a right to their own opinion, no doubt. But.. I personally believe we would live on a much better planet if everyone learned how to approach a subject from their heart, not in an obscure way that could hurt another’s feelings.
With all that said..here is a nature mandala I created last weekend in a park near my home. Autumn colors are brilliant in Japan and I feel so blissed out after creating with all these colors.
I have really opened up to Cypress essential oil. It truly shows how to trust and go with the flow in our daily lives. It is so easy to say just “let go” but to actually “let go” is not that easy. I believe that Cypress is a go-to oil for when you feel stuck, restless and unsure of what is to come and it can assist you in letting go of what ever you are holding onto that does not serve for a higher purpose. It’s fresh earthy aroma is said to help create feelings of security and grounding. This oil takes me into the woods on a hike, it truly reminds me that we are here on Earth, to live life in the present moment. Now, let’s get on to all the wonderful properties of this amazing oil.
It’s time for Tuesday sharing! I am all about wellness and when I started 2016 I had decided it would be my year of creativity and wellness. In January 2016 I signed up for a program called Body Bliss. Step by step or should I say Key by Key I have made some very important changes in my style of living.
“It’s a 12 part online membership program that offers you a feminine approach to Yoga, Fitness, Nutrition, Self Development and Lifestyle.” -Shivani
I am a true believer that making life changes takes a lot of patience and self love. Shivani takes you on a 12 part program (12 Keys) that opens your heart and helps you move into small transformations that you use daily. Her style is juicy, passionate and playful. It’s also helpful that she keeps in mind that we are all busy these days, the “Bliss Breaks” are only 9-15 minutes long. Easy to fit into your daily schedule and well worth every minute.
“I am flowing into loving my body, letting go of the monkey mind and being here&now with the Body Bliss rituals. There is an art to being a woman and Shivani will awaken your feminine bliss.” – Heather Minowa
