This July, I had the opportunity to listen to D. Gary Young speak at the Young Living Convention. He spoke about using the oils for emotional support. As I am on my journey of personal development, I have found myself going back to my notes again and again. I thought I would share some of the highlights with you in hopes it will help you as much as it helps me.
One of the key messages when dealing with a difficult situation was to accept it, embrace it with gratitude, and then release it. What better words to live by then this. Too often we do the exact opposite . We fight, we refuse to acknowledge the issue, or we hold on until the anger or guilt destroy us. One of the great ideas he had was to use the bath as a place to meditate on any difficult thoughts. He suggested to use Release oil in the bath water while diffusing Surrender. The combination of these two is extremely powerful and a great way to end a stressful day or week. Some other great end of the day suggestions was to use Clarity at night to help your subconscious determine the behaviors you want to change as well as Motivation on your pillow so that you get out of bed and get moving in the morning.
Another great take-away was Gary’s thought on change. Again he had some great suggestions on using oils to support the emotional changes associated with great change. These have been extremely helpful for me in the last weeks. The first is to use Common Sense to empower you to make the right decision along with Forgiveness to prevent the guilt of change. I often diffuse Common Sense at work, especially when working on especially difficult projects.
Lastly, he spoke about giving yourself permission to expand your world and go for your dreams. The first step was to get past the feeling of past burdens by using Present Time. From there, to find the balance of heart and mind, he suggested Aromalife and Clarity, Then follow this with Highest Potential to make a difference in your world before you can make a difference in the life of others. I have been applying this during my time of reading personal development books and during meditation. Finally, to move to the next level, applying Galbanum and Gathering on your forehead and temples.
There were so many more words of wisdom that I likely did not capture. However, I hope that these bring you some ideas on using essential oils in conjunction with other personal development to live your best life. I hope you find balance and learn to live your YingYang LIfe.
