Recently, I stumbled on the quote, “In order for good things to come your way, you must believe that you deserve them.” Wow. There’s one to ponder. I’ve struggled lately with goals and with feeling good, so I had to ask myself, Do you really believe that you can achieve these things? You’ve probably heard me talk about the power of vision boards, but vision boards are only effective if you can feel, taste, touch, hear, smell that tropical island as if you are already sitting there, Pina Colada in hand lounging by the blue-green expanse. Get my drift? You’ve got to believe it into existence and the universe will answer.
The picture you see here, that’s me on a recent trip that still makes my heart burst with love and excitement. Over my left arm is Guayaquil, Ecuador. Looking back, I realize that I believed my way there. I had it on my vision board, knew in my heart I’d be going and couldn’t wait to meet new friends and our sponsor child. There was never a question, and this picture is my reminder that I am worthy of gifts like this sweet hat and fun travels around the world. I haven’t much felt that way lately. Could be just the long winter, but more likely it’s because I need to be better at believing.
Can you relate?
Through my own journey, I’ve been able to help others choose a healthier path, but sometimes it’s frustrating to see someone crying tears over chronic physical or mental pain, not being able to get out of their own way to wellness. “Oils are too expensive”, “I can’t do yoga”, “Replacing the toxins takes too much time”, “I have no family support.” I hear these words, and they are red flags that there’s something more going on.
Prioritize Your Health
Have you heard the phrase, “Instead of saying you don’t have time, try saying ‘it’s not a priority’ and see how that feels”? Our time is a choice and so is our spending. When I was teaching high school, there were times I was sad that low income students had better cell phones or tech gadgets than I did. It often meant that someone at home was forfeiting basic wellness for luxuries. I would share food, clothes, money and extra time teaching them about what it meant to really take care of themsel
While it’s easy to become frustrated with lack of awareness, that quote has helped me gain a new perspective. We all have blocks. It’s not that we can’t afford wellness. It’s that deep down we don’t BELIEVE we deserve it, so we remain sick and tired and spend money on things that aren’t helping us be healthy. I’m thankful that my journey has helped me get over that hump in many ways, and I want to help you, too!
Is there something standing in your way of feeling good each day or having the life of your dreams? Do you have excuses as to why you can’t have all that and a bag of chips? Okay, let’s pass on the chips. I’m doing a whole food cleanse this week! Food is where many of my blocks lie, by the way.
Trust the Journey
Trust the journey, but know that the law of attraction is powerful, and you may be vibrating at a frequency that isn’t ready for that island Pina Colada or that new house you’ve had your eye on for years. You must BELIEVE it first. Close your eyes, take a deep breath, see it, hear it, taste it, smell it. Feel it in your core.
Today, take a deep breath or a few and find your way back to your authentic self. The self that knows YOU deserve health and happiness and will do what it takes to get there. Whether it's health you're after, a vacation, or that new house - truly believe it’s yours and it will be. Breathe YOU and add some BELIEVE oil to send that frequency through the roof. It doesn’t hurt to put on a fabulous hat and let your hair down with a view over your shoulder!
Here is a wellness practice that I use when I need to refocus, release, and BELIEVE in myself.
Breathe and Believe Detox Bath:
1 cup of Epsom Salts 1/4 cup baking soda (optional but best for the detox) 3-5 drops of BELIEVE oil
Mix together and add to a warm tub. Soak for 20 minutes, taking some deep inhales and exhales through your nose and Breathe your way back to YOU. Believe good things are coming your way. See it, feel it, taste it, hear it, smell it. You deserve the best out of life! *Believe is a blend of Idaho Blue Spruce, Balsam Fir, Frankincense, Bergamot, Ylang Ylang, Geranium & Coriander. All fantastic oils for raising frequency, releasing negative energy & freeing up your mind and body to BELIEVE. #youngliving #essentialoils
