Change Your Thoughts, Change Your Life.

 Change Your Thoughts, Change Your Life.
         


 Our bodies were magnificently designed to have an extraordinary ability to determine, achieve and maintain optimal levels of intelligence, mental health, peace, and happiness as well as the prevention of disease of the body and mind.

         For as he thinketh in his heart, so is he. Proverbs 23:7

 Through conscious efforts, you can gain control of your thoughts and feelings and actually change the programming and chemistry of your brain.

                  Our Life is What Our Thoughts Make It-- Marcus Aurelius



Science is finally catching up with the Bible, showing us that indeed," God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power, love, and sound mind 2 Timothy 1:7

 
"Neuroscientific research is confirming daily what we instinctively knew all along. What you think every moment every day becomes a physical reality in your brain and body which affects your mental and physical health. These thoughts then form your attitude or state of mind. It's your attitude and not your DNA that determines much of your quality of life"---Dr. Caroline Leaf, ( Dr. Leaf is a communication pathologist and cognitive neuroscientist with a Masters and PhD in Communication Pathology and a BSc Logopaedics, specializing in cognitive and metacognitive neuropsychology.)


Our brain is neuroplastic--it can change and regrow. This is great news!! In addition, God has built-in an operating principle of neurogenesis--new nerve cells are birthed daily for our mental benefit. Sounds like Lamentations 3:22-23, " The Lord's mercies are new every morning.



This sounds great and it is!! The thought that WE can change our brain to improve our health is fascinating and biblical.

Ditch Sugar Cravings With Cinnamon Bark Essential Oil

Ditch Sugar Cravings With Cinnamon Bark Essential Oil
"Sugar does induce the same responses in the region of the brain known as the “reward center”—technically, the nucleus accumbens—as do nicotine, cocaine, heroin, and alcohol."
- Gary Taubes, The Case Against Sugar
Hello friend!
When do you crave sugar?  During an afternoon slump?  Dessert after a great meal?  Late-night binging? If you answer yes to any (or all!) of these, you're not alone.

Sugar has become ingrained in our diet. The sweet stuff is a ubiquitous source of calories in the Western diet, even though experts agree that sugar is a major contributor to many major diseases.

In fact, it's the daily consumption of sugar that is literally destroying our health. Dr. Alan Greene, a pediatrician who sits on the board of the Institute for Responsible Nutrition, says sugar-sweetened beverages, along with cakes, cookies, and ice cream, are some of the major offenders, but hidden sources of added sugars are also a concern. He states, “What happens is that Americans are having dessert several times a day and don’t know it."

Reducing sugar can be tricky, as they're more than fifty ingredient names that are code for "sugar".


As you work to reduce or eliminate sugar from your diet, be sure to check for these hidden sugars!

KICK THE SUGAR WITH ESSENTIAL OILS: CINNAMON BARK
Cinnamon was used throughout history to help balance blood sugar levels. In recent times it's been found to help alleviate sugar cravings as well.

When your blood sugar levels are unstable, you may find yourself overeating and gaining weight. Combine this with the fact that when your energy levels are low it's difficult to exercise and burn calories, and you wind up with some extra stubborn weight.

Using cinnamon oil can help you overcome these issues that are standing in your way! Check out this study on the effects of cinnamon on glucose levels!

Essential Oils and Emotions

Essential Oils and Emotions


Emotions can be difficult and even scary. It is so much easier to suppress emotions than to recognize, feel, and process them. However, the ability to recognize, feel, process, and release emotions will enable you to function in a more positive and successful state so you can live free to create the life you desire.


We learn about and develop emotions from birth, through early childhood development and onward. This means that helping children recognize emotions and learn to process emotions is one of the most powerful gifts you can give as a parent or caregiver.


It also means that if you didn’t develop and utilize effective techniques to process your emotions early on, you may have some catching up to do. Don’t worry. I will give you easy tools to use so you can learn how to process your emotions in a healthy way.


Today, I will share popular essential oils that can be used with various emotions. I will also share different techniques to make using your oils more effective for those of all ages.



When talking about emotions, we must mention the limbic system. The limbic system is a system of nerves and networks in the brain that controls basic emotions and drives. It is the emotional brain.

 It supports five major functions: emotions, behavior, motivation, long-term memory, and sense of smell. Have you ever spontaneously cried or laughed depending on whether the memory was happy, sad or traumatic? This reaction is your limbic system at work. When we inhale the aroma of something like baked goods, fried food, grass or essential oil, the odor molecules travel through the nose where they register with nerves in the olfactory membranes in the nose lining. 

The odor molecules stimulate this lining of nerve cells and trigger electrical impulses to the olfactory bulb in the brain. The olfactory bulb then transmits the impulses to the amygdala - where emotional memories are stored - and to other parts of the limbic system of the brain. The unique structure of the molecules of essential oils can directly stimulate the hypothalamus and limbic lobe of the brain. Inhaling essential oils may alleviate stress and emotional trauma as well as increase the production of thyroid and growth hormones.

The amygdala (where emotional memories are stored) plays a major role in the storage and release of emotional trauma. Our sense of smell is directly linked to emotional states and behaviors, even if they have been stored since childhood. Our sense of smell, one of the five senses, is the ONLY way to stimulate the amygdala. The amygdala does not respond to words said or words heard. This is why the use of essential oils is so therapeutic to the release of stored emotions. 

Essential oils enable us to access stored or forgotten memories and/or suppressed emotions. This allows us to acknowledge, integrate or release them. If we don't, these memories and suppressed emotions can cause disease in our bodies such as feeling blue or feeling afraid. Essential oils, when combined with prayer and seeking the Holy Spirit (and other modalities such as massage) can have a healing effect on our mind, emotions, and body, especially when we incorporate them into our daily practice.


This is great news! That means you can use essential oils to recall memories, both good and bad. If they are bad, you can use the oils to help you release cellular memories stored in the body, allowing you to process and move past them.



Now that we have covered a little science, let’s dive into these powerful blends and talk about how they can be used.

I only use Young Living essential oils. Young Living is a known leader in essential oils. They set the standards and have been around for 25 years. They are the only ones with The Seed to Seal Promise. You can read more about that HERE

Forgiveness
“Forgiveness is not always easy. At times, it feels more painful than the wound we suffered, to forgive the one that inflicted it. And yet, there is no peace without forgiveness.”
Marianne Williamson

In a life full of relationships, there will be many times we need to forgive. When we are bothered by the actions of others in our past, we are filled with anger, hate, resentment, and emotional pain. Forgiveness is a way to release all of those negative emotions from your inner body and begin the healing process. One useful technique is to combine deep breathing while inhaling Forgiveness essential oil.
Deep breathing can be as easy as stopping what you are doing and taking a slow deep inhale, feeling your lungs expand and fill up. Then release your breath just as slowly as you took it in. Repeat this two more times.


The blend Forgiveness™ contains:
 Sesame,
 Melissa, 
Geranium, 
Frankincense,

BIBLE VERSE
Be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving each other, just as in Christ God forgave you. -Ephesians 4:32
Repeat this affirmation as you practice your deep breathing exercise.




 Inner Child

Have you ever asked yourself, “Who am I?”
You may have asked yourself and felt this many different times throughout your life, in the transition from a child to a teenager or teenager to an adult; when graduating from college and search for a career; when entering a relationship and needing to figure out who you are as you intertwine your life with someone else's life.

It gives a relaxing aroma that facilitates the ability to let go of anger and frustration. It also promotes harmony and balance when diffused.

Let’s talk teens. 
--> It’s no secret that teens are emotional. Lots of changes are going on in their bodies. They are transitioning from childhood into adulthood and often struggle with being dependent on their parents while having a strong desire to be independent. They may also feel overwhelmed by the emotional and physical changes they are experiencing.
Communicating your love for your child is an effective way to help your teen during difficult life changes.

TOOLS
Giving teenagers tools to release unwanted emotions can be very helpful in creating an emotionally healthy teen, allowing them to feel and process in a healthy manner.
Movement can be used in various forms of intensity to work through or release different emotions. Many people find high-intensity fitness, such as running or sports like boxing, successful in releasing stressors and frustration, while others may find slow intentional movement, like yoga, great for releasing anxious feelings and cultivating a sense of peace.
Diffusing Release is a simple tool anyone can use and is very effective to help feel and process emotions such as anger, resentment, or guilt.

Aroma Freedom Technique (AFT)



AFT is a technique that uses the power of scent to gently shift awareness away from negative thoughts, feelings, and memories, and to initiate a positive outlook and attitude. 
--> This results in greater confidence and inner freedom. When we are no longer stuck in negative mindsets, we are free to create the life we desire.
_____________________
This twelve-step process is yet another tool you can use to help you release emotions and memories that are holding you back and allow you to move forward.
 It is a simple process that starts with setting an intention or goal you would like to achieve, one you don't believe is very attainable. You rate your intention on a scale of 1 to 10 and move through a series of steps incorporating your essential oils, which will allow you to move through different emotions that are limiting you.

You can use very common oils such as:
  • Stress Away
  • Frankincense
  • Lavender 
  • Lemon 
  • Peppermint 
  • Thieves 
...to help tap into these deep memories and emotions and release them to foster growth.
You can also use favorites like Inner Child, Release, Transformation and Believe.
You can purchase Dr. Benjamin Perkus' books through his website and walk yourself through the process or you can find a practitioner on his website to guide you through this process. https://aroma-freedom.myshopify.com/

12 Ingredients To Avoid In Your Personal Care Products.

12 Ingredients To Avoid In Your Personal Care Products.

You don't know what you don't know, right?

But once you know, what next? Ignore it or make a few changes?

The ingredient list on our personal care products can be downright scary. With so many listed and many of them, you can't pronounce much less know what they are.  Try this--take a few of the ingredients listed and search on Google with the words "dangers of" in front of it and see what happens. It's shocking and to be honest, makes me a little mad. 

We use these on our children! Their little bodies are still growing which makes some of these ingredients even more dangerous.


Many of these ingredients are known as endocrine disruptors, which means they jack up your hormones. I don't know about y'all but my hormones don't need any more jacking up than they can be already!!

What exactly are endocrine disruptors?

They are naturally occurring compounds or man-made substances that can mimic or interfere with hormones in the body. They may turn on, turn off or modify signals that hormones carry. In other words, wreak havoc on our bodies.

Slide12


     Slide13

You can read more about endocrine disruptors at https://www.niehs.nih.gov/health/materials/endocrine_disruptors_508.pdf 

 You never have to worry about Young Living products because they don't use questionable ingredients EVER. You can read more about ingredients you will NEVER find in Young Living products. https://www.youngliving.com/blog/australia/ingredients-youll-never-find-in-yl-products/

Here is the list of 12 ingredients to watch out for.


Propylene Glycol and Butylene Glycol--The EPA consider this so toxic it requires gown, gloves, and goggles when burying. They also warn against skin contact to prevent brain, kidney and liver abnormalities.

Parabens- Methyl, Butyl Propyl and Ethyl.Used as preservatives. Not always labeled. Used in deodorants and other skincare products and have been found in breast cancer tumors. May contribute to male sterility, hormone imbalance in females and early puberty.

Phthalates-Usually not listed on the label but in many products. Health effects include damage to the liver and kidneys, birth defects and decrease sperm counts.

Sunscreen chemicals: These are common ingredients in sunscreens. They are known to be free radical generators and are believed to damage DNA and cause cancer.

        Avobenzone

        Benzophenone

         Methoxycinnamate

         PABA

Another really big ingredient to look out for is fragrance. It can mean hundreds of different chemicals that they do not have to list. If you see fragrance listed, it's not good!

Ingredients matter Y'all!!



You can learn more about the ingredients used in some of the products you use  at https://www.ewg.org/

With just a few changes you can greatly reduce these potentially harmful ingredients. Even if only half of these warnings are true, why take a chance?

What steps can we take to make sure we are not using these ingredients in our homes?

Be more careful about what we buy by reading the ingredient label.

Make Your own products using essential oils. ( Don't worry it's easy and usually has just a few products)

Buy from a trusted source. Young Living has more than just essential oils. There are over 600+products to choose from and you don't have to worry about questionable practices or ingredients.
