Excellent work, you!

“An affirmation opens the door. It’s a beginning point on a path to change”

Louise L. Hay

 

Ah yes the most important thing about repeating affirmations is that your energy and spirit must be aligned with what your brain is saying. If not, the universe gets confused and finds it hard to surround and support you in your endeavours. As Louise says, affirmations are simply gates to a world of energetic change, and by using essential oils you can amplify your desires and link them to a world of scented beauty.

“By using essential oils with your affirmations you can transcend your logical mind and align your desires with your soul. When you are inviting essential oils into your world, attach some loving good feelings to those oils and your affirmation, and you will have a powerhouse of positivity”.

Suzanne R Banks

 

Affirmations are a great tool to open your awareness to wonderful possibilities, but at the same time being kind to yourself is just as important. We often have many (false) beliefs running in the background of our minds that negatively influence the way we speak to ourselves. If you drop and smash something in the kitchen do you hear yourself saying “I’m an idiot” or “I always smash things” or something similar? Sometimes these little sayings have been with us since childhood and it’s time to CHANGE!

Changing old patterns is easier with essential oils, and here are a couple I recommend –

cinnamon

Cinnamon is a great spice that lends happiness and positivity to your world

Cinnamon

be sweet with yourself

Aw go on you can do it! Cinnamon is so fun and lovely and is a great oil to use in your formulations for scenting your space. This essential oil will help you lighten up and enjoy the person you are now and the one you want to become. Add sweetness to your day!

Beware of cinnamon’s bite and do not use it on your skin – it will burn!

Lavender

solid foundations acceptance

“When it comes to self-esteem and positive self-talk use essential oil of lavender for coherence and solidarity. This is an oil I would use for any kind of imbalance, to provide a sense of strong roots – a solid foundation.”

Suzanne R Banks

 

This oil comes from an ancient healing plant and must not be overlooked. It is abundant, easy to find in nature, and can be used for so many issues. You can just take a sniff straight from the bottle during your day to bring in a burst of calm and comfort.

What we do every day has far reaching energetic waves

What we do every day has far-reaching energetic waves

Have you ever heard the word dharma before? It is a Sanskrit word and it denotes, not only our jobs and work, but where we fit in the world and how we achieve our spirit’s desires.

“It can include religion, social justice, jobs, awareness, thoughts and deeds, and relates to our true place in the cosmic process. It means more than what we do for work, it speaks to the more profound meaning of our souls”

Suzanne

 

To find your true place in the world start using essential oils. The practice of aromatherapy will help you open your upper chakras to divine intelligence, and allow you to fulfill your destiny (by giving you the confidence to move beyond your perceived limits).

If you are actually looking for a new job, add a few drops of essential oils to your job hunting exercises and allow your ego to step back. Add your intention and trust the perfect job is already there for you – just catch up to it!

Black pepper

Black pepper

This wonderful spice makes a beautiful essential oil, and although you may need to take care with the amounts you use (too much can harm the skin), don’t be afraid to take a whiff from the bottle, add it to your vapouriser, or put a couple of drops into an oil blend for your body.

Black pepper is all about taking action. it will help you gain courage to pursue your dreams!


“How we spend our days is, of course, how we spend our lives”

Annie Dillard, Author


 

So how do you spend your days? In a job you hate, desperate for each holiday, but you’re hanging in there because the money is good?

Or are you throwing away the demands and expectations of western society and pursuing your dreams, so in turn you may inspire others to do the same? This may sound selfish but in doing this you are adding another extra surge of energy to our evolution.

Petitgrain is also an oil of happiness as it helps relieve anxiety and tension. To me it is the promise of good things to come.

“When you can be a bit more relaxed about the search for your purpose in this world, more opportunities will present themselves to you. Find new opportunities, new projects, new thoughts and feelings, new rituals and a new outlook with petitgrain”

Suzanne

Please spend your days, or at least some time each day, with your true desires to be revealed to you through your work. Sometimes it may just be the case of renewed passion for the job you currently have – and then its easy! By using essential oils daily, the scent will transform your soul and you will have no choice but to follow your dreams.

Love

Another look in between the covers of my book

 

Heart is the symbol for all love

Heart is the symbol for all love

Essential oils for love could be any oil you like really. In my book I have listed some oils in the section for love that inspire and move me to feel more open and compassionate. Love is a small word for a big concept ….

“Any of the oils I relate to love, can be used on any level of intention – personal to universal, micro to macro. And you must remember to use your intention to invoke feelings through the essential oils. This also gives you more of  choice when creating a potion. if you really love, love, love lemongrass oil, why not use it to inspire romance (even if its traditional use is quite different?). ”

 

That’s me quoting myself. Hehehehe

 

So here’s a couple of oils I associate with love.

Jasmine

sensuality

Ah the sweet scent of jasmine rides on the promise of spring. The world opens up to us again after winter with this little white blossom that contains powerful data.

“One sniff, one drop, will bring to the surface your desires for love and intimate connection with another.”

 

Yep I’m quoting myself again …….

Jasmine is a very basey smelling oil, and this deep syrupy scent can stir your 2nd chakra – the energy centre for sexual desire. You will most likely find this oil in a 3% blend so it’s perfect to use straight from the bottle as a perfume. See my article for more info on 3% blends in jojoba.

 

Palmarosa is a grass similar to lemongrass

new ideas about love

“If you desire a new romantic partner, but your methods to date are not really working, give palmarosa a go in a mist or moisturiser. Maybe you need some new ideas about love and romance? Perhaps you need to look at how you love yourself, so someone else can too?”

 

Another quote from my book

 

Palmarosa belongs to the Poaceae family that includes lemongrass and citronella. It is very interesting to note that the scents of lemon and rose are quite closely linked. So when you smell citronella you can detect the geraniol in it as well as the limonene. Palmarosa is more rosey scented, but still has a tart undercurrent of grass. When I think of palmarosa I think “flexibilty”.

Mmmmmm sweet love hearts

Mmmmmm sweet love hearts

Love, love, love. It’s a big topic and includes so many aspects and angles. Maybe you are trying to express more love to those around you.

Maybe you need to love yourself more.

Maybe you just want a lover.

Wherever you stand in your life, essential oils will help you open to become a channel for the oneness of the universe.

Spirituality

“You have to grow from the inside out. None can teach you, none can make you spiritual. There is no other teacher than your own soul”

Swami Vivekananda

 

In this chapter in my book I look at the importance of meditation and intuition within the subject of essential oils and spirituality. Which ever way you see it, both meditation and intuition are practices in looking within to find the answers to the questions we seek.

Meditation creates positive ripples in your environment

Meditation creates positive ripples in your environment

Essential oils will definitely enhance your meditation experience and one of those oils is…..

Frankincencse

This ancient oil is THE oil for relaxation as it has an effect on the lungs by opening the bronchi and encouraging deeper slower breathing. Used in some religions and churches for thousands of years, this oil is distilled from the resin that is tapped straight from the tree. If you find it difficult to sit quietly and meditate, vapourise essential oil of frankincense and have another go. You will be calmed by its magic.

 

Use your intuition (borrowed from eventexperts.com.au)

Use your intuition (pic from eventexperts.com.au)

Developing and/or acknowledging your intuition can be fortified using essential oils – by the way in which you choose them to treat yourself. As a novice essential oil user its fun to play the game of “which essential oils should I use/buy?”. Allowing yourself to be guided by your feelings is a perfect way to open yourself to your own genius that lies within.

When I first started practising Aromatherapy I would choose the oils for my client, and while they were getting on the massage table, I’d quickly flick through a book to work out why I had chosen those particular oils, so I would have something to tell them. After a while I slipped more easily to an intuitive state, and combined with my intention, the oils would be the perfect combination (of course!).

Basil

Basil is a clearing and opening oil for the upper chakras, and while it’s stimulating to the mind it can also help you go beyond your thoughts to connect straight to universal intelligence. Even tearing up a basil leaf and crushing it between your fingers then inhaling, can do wonders for your soul.

There are so many more oils I attribute to bringing a more vital knowledge of spirit, and you probably have your own too! To find out what other oils I have on my spirituality list check my book out using these links:

REVELATION! My New Book

 

Revelation! Reveal Your Destiny with Essential Oils

Revelation! Reveal Your Destiny with Essential Oils

 

I’m excited to announce my first book has been published and is now available on Amazon, and Barnes and Noble, in a Kindle edition and paperback. Here’s the general vibe of what’s in between the covers. In the following weeks I’ll unveil a little more, and let you know some of the essential oils I use for all different parts of life.

This book really is all about the vibe of essential oils and their powerful energetic presence. When you use essential oils you are inviting scented information into your life. Not only is the scent of essential oils beautiful, but the information they carry can be life changing.

Rub oil into your body - it's good!

Rub oil into your body – it’s good!

Using oils on your physical body will no doubt bring about change. We know that essential oils are wonderful for releasing tension in the muscles, soothing dry skin, and generally making you feel soft and lovely. The body will absorb the oils into the blood stream and tissues and create gentle but subtle change. The body is matter and can be slow to respond but why not use essential oils rather than common skincare creams? Many creams and lotions contain toxic ingredients and are made in huge vats, packaged in plastic and have little life force energy.

We know essential oils work on the mind as when we smell the molecules, they travel straight into the brain to directly affect brain tissue and secondarily effect the production of hormones and moods. Why not be smelling a distilled plant that has medicinal and therapeutic qualities, rather than a synthetic fragrance? Be more mindful of your decisions and try to minimise the toxicity in your life. This also relates to toxic thoughts and practices too.

colour and movement

Essential oils can create colour and movement in your life

The most exciting way essential oils can work through us, is the way scent can travel through the spaces of the body and mind and into our souls. In this space of no time and no place, is where we access the divine knowledge of the universe. Using essential oils can change your focus away from matter into potentiality as they carry the secrets of the universe in their molecular structure. This is the key to revealing your true life purpose – using essential oils as a tool to open to your divinity, and to allow creativity to flow through you!

inspire someone today

Inspire someone today, an in turn become inspired

You too can help the evolution of humanity by living your true purpose. If you aren’t sure what that is then read my book and start using essential oils!

Remember to treat yourself first, then everyone will benefit.
