Becoming More ConsciousWritten by Linda-Ann Stewart
You are creating your life experience every single day. Your life is formed from what you think about all day long. The beliefs and attitudes that are so habitual that you don't even notice them shaping your experiences. Instead of responding to situations from an awareness of All Potentials, you react to stimuli from outdated concepts. By re-acting, acting out an attitude over and over, you remain unconscious of what you're doing, and that you're probably sabotaging whatever it is that you want.
Have you ever opened a bag of potato chips and unconsciously nibbled on them while watching a movie? Maybe you'd like to lose weight, but all of a sudden bag is empty. Oops! You probably weren't even hungry, but you ate them out of habit. Wanting a specific thing to happen in your life, you're actually filling your mental screen with its opposite. The very thing you want to eliminate from your life clutters it up, chattering, "I can't have," "I don't have," "I don't deserve." You believe that what mental chatter says is truth, maybe because someone you trusted told you it was so. Or you believe in them because they're happening in your life. You believe life is difficult. Just look at all problems you have right now. But you don't have problems because life is difficult; you have problems because you "believe" that life is difficult. You have a mental fog of illusion, delusion, confusion, and this fog permeates every idea and concept you have.
Celebrating LoveWritten by Francoise Rapp
While Valentine's Day is a special holiday to celebrate our loved ones, it serves as a reminder that we should honor ones we love throughout year, too. We should celebrate precious value of our relationships and appreciate them with much consciousness everyday.
The day-in, day-out routine of our daily lives tends to wash away excitement that comes with new love. We forget that our eyes used to sparkle when our sweetheart would enter room, that time we spend together is cherished, that we are each a foundation for other.
To keep love and excitement alive, we need to remember how love is magical, unique, deep (yet subtle), mysterious (yet tangible), passionate (yet gentle) and safe. Love is an inherent drive and emotion that can lead us to our greatest accomplishments. Love animates our lives with many colors and much joy. The best way to deeply appreciate its uniqueness is by embracing present and be fully aware of love's presence in every moment; remaining conscious of what we feel for our true love; being here and now to enjoy its gentle warmth as it envelops us.
This week, use following aromatic blends to help you celebrate love you feel for your loved one, to honor feeling, to be in present and fully enjoy its energy. The affirmations included with each blend will help to raise your consciousness and channel right energy you are working on at that moment.
To create these custom aromatic blends, add essential oils in a 10-oz bottle and then add organic vegetable oil to fill.
