The Meaning of Spring + 3 Essential Oils to Harness It.

The Meaning of Spring + 3 Essential Oils to Harness It.

Spring brings with it not only warmer days but also a sense of hope and positivity. It’s a season that celebrates new beginnings. It invites us to see the beauty of new life around us. It inspires us to try new things with new energy and connect to ourselves with joy.
After the inner stillness, reflection and restoration of Winter you can reconnect, open up and integrate your ideas. Out of the calm and clarity that has occurred throughout Winter you can begin to bring your vision and new ideas to life. You are preparing to bloom.
Spring is the the season of new life in nature and this can be reflected within yourself. You can tune into your feelings, your cravings for change and growth and see the beauty in your emerging ideas. As nature blooms, so can you.
As you welcome fresh new energy into your life, give yourself time to tune into your intuition. This is a time to embrace the new and allow yourself to try new things. It’s a time to step outside your comfort zone and celebrate your true spirit. It’s a time to set intentions that align with the change and growth you desire.
If you’re still feeling the inner quiet of Winter, you can step into the season at a slower pace, integrating the awakening elements of Spring in your own time.
As you begin to expand and acknowledge the beauty in and around you, you will be able to connect to your inner light and beauty.
Energy, inspiration and a willingness to embrace new things comes with the season of Spring and your spirit feels the joy and connection to nature.
You are ready to bloom from the inside out.

To support you thoughout Spring I have three essential oils to share with you…

LEMON
(Citrus limonum)
When I think of LEMON essential oil I think sunshine in a bottle! It is refreshing, uplifting, and nurturing. It is great for Spring because it helps bring your energy into the now. An oil for happiness and fun, it is uplifting and energising for mind, body and soul. Lemon is great for clearing a fuzzy mind, increasing motivation, ambition and positive decision making. It is strengthening for the spirit. It helps eliminate negative thoughts, depression, anxiety, apathy and stress, replacing it with optimism, laughter, stability, motivation and joy! A very nurturing oil for promoting self-care and love.
NEROLI
(Citrus aurantium ssp Amara)
Neroli is balancing, soothing and nurturing. It reconnects your mind body and soul to a place of joy – perfect for spring. It enhances relaxation and is stabilising, regenerating and strengthening. It enhances self-confidence and fulfilment. It centres your entire being and is very soothing for the nervous system bringing about a sense of calm and at the same time uplifting to the spirit. It is a great anxiety fighter and helps nervous exhaustion and shock. It is very helpful to support anyone who has been depressed long term or short term. It also helps in times of sorrow especially when accompanied by a feeling of emptiness. Neroli is beautiful as we emerge from Winter and step into Spring.
CEDARWOOD
(Cedrus atlantica)
Cedarwood is harmonising and calming. It grounds your whole being bringing self-empowerment and love. As it grounds and harmonises, it allows you to set intentions and goals that align with you and bring you joy. It helps to improve confidence. It is strengthening, warming, soothing and helps in enhancing self-love. It allows focus and openness which enhances caring, endurance, balance and positivity. It’s sedative action helps to reduce stress, depression and exhaustion, allowing the mind to relax and emotional tension to be released. It is energising without being overly stimulating – the effect is smooth, deep and long lasting, making very supportive to the adrenals and nervous system.
The three oils above combine to create my Spring Bliss blend and will support you in the season of Spring to connect to your inner light and bloom.
There are so many oils you could use in the season of Spring. Let me know in the comments what your favourite is for Spring. And always remember, it’s important to choose what you are attracted to.

Let’s Do Less

Let’s Do Less

The idea for this post came from a very good friend of mine.
In my last blog post I talked about the fact that we’re all busy. It’s true.  It’s a fact of life that we all have a lot going on and when your doctor tells you that you need a break it’s probably time to actually take one. I’m not just talking about a day off here and there, although that’s great! I think it’s about regular time out and not loading too much upon ourselves. We all do it and we need to stop. Now!
You need a long term plan that allows you to thrive. A plan that is tailored to you so it works for you and your lifestyle.
But where do you start? How the hell do you do this when you’re a business owner, entrepreneur, carer, mother, daughter and the list goes on…
  • You get intentional.
  • You prioritise.
  • You practise self love and self care to the max.
  • You say ‘yes’ when it aligns and feels 100% right and you say ‘no’ when it doesn’t.
  • You take your time making a decision – you don’t have to give anyone an answer right away. I have a gotten into the habit, when someone asks me to do something, of saying ‘can I get back to you, I just need to check a few things’.
  • You schedule regular time out in your calendar and you stick to it.
  • You practise tuning into how you feel and what you need and you find ways to give yourself those things.
As I said, it’s a long term plan. One that you continually check in with and tweak as you need to.
It takes planning and practice, but it’s worth it!
Why not start by taking one non essential off your To Do list this week or month and then do the same next week or month.
Remember, small shifts add up to big changes over time.
How will you start doing less? What will you take off your To Do list? Let me know in the comments below.

3 Ways To Overcome Overwhelm + 3 Essential Oils

3 Ways To Overcome Overwhelm + 3 Essential Oils

Life can sometimes seem overwhelming. There’s so much happening in our lives.
We can experience breathtaking, amazing, exciting and mind-blowing situations.
Our reality can feel devastating, paralyzing, sad and astounding to us.
We search for happiness and joy in what we do.
Through it all it can seem like there is so much to do, and quite often that is actually the case! In todays world most of us do have a lot to do! And the feeling of overwhelm is bound to happen from time to time.

So here’s 3 ways to help you overcome overwhelm and come back to a place of calm.

These are things we can all do and while they may not seem new or inventive, they can have a  huge impact on how you feel.

1. Talk about it. Don’t push it aside because it will come back and usually feel ten times worse than what it did originally. And don’t let it fester inside you. The thoughts rolling round and round in your head will just end up increasing your feeling of overwhelm. Sometimes just saying out loud how you’re feeling helps dissipate the enormity of it. And once you do start to talk about it you can focus on solutions and what to do next. You can clear the clutter in your mind and come up with a plan.

2. Write about it. Journalling can really help you get clear on how you’re feeling and why. Get it all out on paper. If you don’t know where to start ask yourself a few questions – How am I feeling? Why am I feeling this way? What do I believe about this situation? Is this belief true? You may be surprised what comes up, sometimes we don’t even realise what is beneath the surface. Read over what you’ve written and ask yourself – How can I reframe this? What is the next thing (one small step) I can do to feel better?

3. Meditation. I wholeheartedly believe in the power of meditation. There are many apps out there to help you. To start I always recommend Relax & Rest – it has 3 simple meditations to get you started. But even just a minute of deep breathing can ground and calm you. Give it a try next time you start to feel overwhelmed.

Along with these 3 tips you can inhale any essential oil you are drawn to that calms and soothes you. Place a drop on a tissue to carry with you throughout the day. Or use in your oil diffuser as directed by the manufacturer to create a calm environment.

3 essential oils I love for this are…

ROMAN CHAMOMILE (Chamaemelum anthemis nobile) is deeply calming making it a great support in times of stress, worry and over-thinking. It also helps when you are feeling dissatisfied and greatly improves mood. It’s sedating properties help calm and settle the mind.

CEDARWOOD (Cedrus atlantica) is warming, calming, soothing and harmonising. It’s sedative action helps to reduce stress, depression and exhaustion, allowing the mind to relax and emotional tension to be released. It has a gentle energising effect allowing a smooth, deep and long lasting feeling of balance and calm.

CYPRESS (Cupressus sempervirens) is cleansing, tonifying and strengthening. It nourishes an over-burdened nervous system, helping to reduce stress and nervous tension and feelings of being overwhelmed. It restores calm and is soothing to the spirit on a deep level.

What do you to overcome feelings of overwhelm? Let me know in the comments below.

4 Ways To A Happy Winter

4 Ways To A Happy Winter

Winter is here! For some us that that doesn’t instantly make us feel good and for others they begin to thrive in the cold weather.  I’m the former but since moving to Canberra I’ve embraced the seasons and found ways to cultivate a nice relationship with Winter.

It’s important to find what works for you. What makes you feel good?

Find the things that are enjoyable for you and find time for them. Embrace them.

These are the 4 main things I focus on to keep me happy in Winter…

1. Movement. I must keep my body moving during the cold months. The less I move the more I feel the cold. The more I move the better I feel emotionally – I don’t tend to get the Winer blues if I’m doing some regular exercise. I go for an {almost} daily walk. Even when it’s freezing outside I layer up with my parker, beanie, gloves and scarf and get outside. I also go snow-shoeing (hiking in the snow) whenever I can. I’m lucky enough to live only a few hours drive to the mountains so I can get out and enjoy the beauty of Winter while getting a great workout. Connecting to nature really helps me at all times of the year to reset and deeply calm my mind, body and soul.

2. Nourishing Food. Warming, nourishing foods help keep me energised during Winter. I love soups and smaller hearty meals that aren’t too heavy. I also love spices like ginger and cinnamon to warm me up and boost my immune system. When I eat well I’m more motivated to move and less likely to hibernate on the couch.

3. Connection. It’s easy to stay at home in the warmth during winter but it’s so important to get out and stay connected with our family and friends. It can seem like a huge effort, but believe me when you get dressed, get out and spend time with those you love you’ll feel a whole lot better.

4. Aromatherapy is a lovely way to support your mind, body and soul through any season. Essential oils can help to harmonise and warm your mind, body and soul during Winter.  I’ve created a beautiful Winter Harmony blend of orange, geranium, patchouli and ginger to use in my Winter Signature Treatment. Here’s a little bit about each of these delightful oils…

Winter Harmony essential oil blend

A delightful blend designed to to infuse joy and creativity, bring blance and strength, warmth and confidence and to integrate the energies of mind body and soul.

ORANGE is for joy and giving vitality and radiance to mind and body. It enhances positive energy, enthusiasm, inspiration and creativity. It allows you to unwind & de-stress, releasing anxiety, frustration and depression and allowing relaxation to wash over you. It also helps the perfectionist to take a more easy going approach! It is very useful if you are feeling sadness, apathy or loss of hope by strengthening the soul and bringing  a light-heartedness to your life. It helps create joy, love, communication and pleasure in your day, bringing with it self-assurance, courage and happiness

GERANIUM is for balance and strength. It assists the nervous system, helping to relieve stress & depression. It is also excellent for feelings of anxiety, overwhelm, indecisiveness and self doubt.  It is fortifying, comforting and calming, enhancing contentment, confidence and the ability to change. It balances hormones and soothes emotional stress while strengthening and balancing the mind.

PATCHOULI grounds and integrates the energy between mind, body and soul. It is very grounding and deeply calming, creating a true sense of inner peace. It is great for soothing anxiety and depression. It enhances your ability to tune into your purpose and feel fulfilment. A very gentle oil great for tuning into your intuition, inner wisdom, allowing laughter and love into your life.

GINGER is for warmth and confidence. It is grounding, soothing and calming. A physical & spiritual cleanse, it is emotionally lifting.  It promotes self-confidence, courage and clarity. It is warming to the body, mind and spirit making it great for vitality and endurance on all levels. 

Use this blend in your aromatherapy diffuser or as an inhalation. For your aromatherapy diffuser use as directed, usually a few drops is plenty! As an inhalation, inhale from the bottle by waving slowly  back and forth under your nose or place a drop on a tissue to inhale throughout the day.

Some other things I love about Winter are…

  • The time to slow down and reflect.
  • The feeling of lying in bed snuggled under warm heavy blankets.
  • Fresh vegetable juices with lots of ginger, turmeric and lemon.
  • A glass of red wine and raw chocolate.
  • The fashions – boots, coats, gloves, beanies and scarves! I love them all.

What do you love about Winter? Let me know in the comments below.

Let’s embrace all that Winter has to offer.

Why You Need Gratitude

Why You Need Gratitude

Gratitude is no doubt something you’ve heard about if you’ve been exploring the personal development world. You may have tried it for a while or maybe not. You may even think it seems too simple to work or you just don’t have time or possibly you just don’t know how practising gratitude could actually improve your life.

So what is gratitude?

The dictionary defines it as ‘the quality or feeling of being grateful or thankful’.
I think of gratitude as the practice of feeling deep appreciation for the good things in your life, big and small.

Your thoughts and your words create your reality. So when you have a regular practice of acknowledging what you’re grateful for you will feel and attract more of that into your life.

Gratitude focuses on, and therefore cultivates, positivity, joy, purpose, success, love and optimism.

Personally I find that tuning in to gratitude and really feeling it helps me let go of feelings of anxiety. The gratitude crowds out the anxiety I feel in my chest and stomach and replaces it with a sense of calm and peace. This allows more space and opportunity to focus on kindness, ease and self care.

It is simple and it does work. But here’s the thing, it’s like most things that are good for us, it requires consistency.

Consistency creates a cumulative effect that can be so powerful.

Start now. Keep doing it every day. When you’re thinking it isn’t really working, keep doing it. Because one day you’ll realise the difference it has made to your life over time. And it will continue to do so.

This in turn allows you to feel more grateful and so the effect and benefits grow.

My gratitude practise is super simple. Every night, as part of my journaling practise, I write down what I’m grateful for that day. Sometimes it’s just one thing – like my comfy warm bed or the glass of red I had with dinner. Other times it’s something bigger – like the unwavering support I have from my Andrew (my hubby) and friends. 

I find it helps me to focus on abundance over lack and to see the positive in people and situations. 

When I’m grateful I feel less anxious. When I’m grateful I feel more peace and contentment. When I’m grateful I attract more of that goodness into my life.

Do you have a gratitude practice? Let me know in the comments below how it has helped you.

4 Ways To Amplify Your Joy

4 Ways To Amplify Your Joy

In the last couple of weeks I’ve had a big shift. After a hike in the mountains, one of my favourite things to do, I felt energised and uplifted. I always find being in nature soul nourishing and deeply healing. I often get clarity and inspiration as my mind clears and ideas flow.

After this particular hike I realised that the joy has gone out of so many things I do – not the actual work I do with clients, thank goodness I always love that, but it’s gone from the ideas and creation and planning of new things, the behind the scenes stuff in my business and my life.

I decided to bring back that joy.

To come back to a space that is filled with a sense of ease and alignment.

No more push and heaviness.

No more hesitation and distress.

I mind mapped my life and business and reconnected to the things I love in a way that feels good for me – not how I think things ‘should’ look but what actually feels good.

As I did this I also came up with 4 things that help bring that feeling of ease and joy into my life.

I hope these 4 Ways To Amplify Joy will help you too.

1. Take a break. Step out of your current environment. That might mean getting outside during the day, taking a mini break or a longer holiday. It might mean being in nature or even a city fix. It might mean curling up with a good book or enjoying your favourite hobby. Do something that your heart is calling you to do.

2. Be around people who get you, who reallly care about you. These are the very same people that you care about too, the ones you want to help and see happy and fulfilled. This life is a two way street. Helping other people can bring you as much joy as knowing that others care about and love you. Call a friend for chat, have a coffee or dinner.

3. Plan. Getting organised can bring a real sense of ease into your daily life. Mind mapping your goals and intentions and planning out your days to work towards those goals and intentions helps you see that it is doable – how joyful and exciting does that feel?!

4. Focus on what is already brining you joy. Gratitude is key. What we focus on we create more of. Start with what is already bringing you joy. Lean into the joy that already exists, embrace it and you will attract more into your life.
What do you do to amplify joy in your life?

My Story. My Beliefs. My Perspective.

My Story. My Beliefs. My Perspective.

I posted on Instagram last week about being more open, raw and honest with you about why I do what I do, what has got me to where I am and how I continue to overcome blocks so I can move forward and have more impact in the world.

I wrote this because people often ask me to share more than I do.

So, here goes…

The last (almost) two years, since my father died, I’ve spent a lot of time thinking about who and what is really important. A lot of time healing and working on how I feel about myself, who I am in this world, my worth and what that really means.

It spiralled me back into the beliefs I had about myself in my teens and early 20’s. Not a great place to be, but it’s forced me to grow and accept my worth and the part I play in the life of my chosen loved ones, which is ultimately great!

Side note: I’m still working on this! Pretty much every day.

A lot of the time it hurts like hell. I’ve cried. A lot. This time last year I was totally exhausted and felt like sleeping for weeks. The everyday life stuff, connecting with people, growing my business, improving my life,  I doubted I could do it. I didn’t think I deserved it. I didn’t think I was worth it. Anyone who knows me knows this isn’t me at all. I don’t give up. I’m positive about life.

So, I took some time to rest and took the pressure off myself to achieve my goals and intentions for 2018.

There’s 3 things that have stood out for me over this time:
– I was getting stuck in my story.
– The negative beliefs I have about myself are holding me back in multiple areas of my life.
– I can change my perspective on anything to see the good.

Part one …

STUCK IN MY STORY

Here’s the truth. I got stuck in my story. The story of “I’m tired” was a big one and as most of the stuff we tell ourselves is, it was true at one point, but I got to the point where I had to ask myself if it was still true.

Last February I can honestly say I was damn tired – physically and emotionally. I was waiting for support from people that were never going to give it me. I wasn’t looking after myself fully (as I continually advise others to do). I wasn’t being authentic. So I took steps in the right direction to come back to my real self and I think I’m almost there! Yay!

Late last year though, I heard myself say for the gazzilionth time “God, I’m tired, I need to sleep” and something clicked in my brain. Am I really?, I asked myself. Turns out, the answer was “no, I’m not!”. I’m just feeling flat, unsure and scared about what to do next. I knew there was so much I needed to do, especially in my business, whose growth I’d neglected. But to do that I needed to do some work on myself and my beliefs.

Refurbish my thoughts if you will.

Part 2

MY BELIEFS

I had lost belief in myself and went back to a version of my younger self where I truly believed I didn’t deserve much, that I wasn’t good enough or smart enough to be happy and successful. And a big one for me, I don’t belong and people just don’t really like me.

Not a great place to be, I’m sure you agree.

From this focus and mindset of lack it’s hard to grow and thrive. I know when I believed these things to be true in my 20’s I married the wrong person*, did unfulfilling work, lacked purpose and didn’t look after myself well at all. I changed things then, so surely I could change them again.

*you’ll be glad to know I divorced said ‘wrong person’ and found my one – we’ve been together 23 years in May!

Now, I know these beliefs from my childhood simply aren’t true. And I want you to know that if you’re feeling like this, it simply isn’t true for you either. For me they come from situations where I felt like I could never do enough, be enough or fit in and be a part of something. 

However, there is a silver lining to this coming up in Part three!

Here’s one simple thing I did that really works…

I started a page in my journal for each negative belief and below it began a list of anything that disproves this belief. It’s amazing how effective this is. I mean, for starters, when I just take a look at the people around me who include me in their lives how can those beliefs be true?! The answer is as simple as it seems. Those negative beliefs just can not be true. The evidence is proof, it’s hard to ignore.

Of course knowing they’re not true and actually believing and living it is another story. I’m not going to lie, it’s an ongoing process. I keep adding to these lists plus journalling and doing lots of things to support my wellbeing on all levels. When negative thoughts come up I question whether they are true, and even if I can’t quite convince myself they’re not, I choose a positive thought to replace it.

Self compassion and perspective is super important.

Which brings me to Part 3

IT’S ALL ABOUT PERSPECTIVE

I really started to change how I looked at things. This doesn’t mean ignoring the unfortunate things that have happened or the beliefs I have had about myself. In fact it meant acknowledging them and then looking for the good that I could take from it. What does it mean for me and who I am as a person today?

This is the silver lining. I may not have felt deserving or worthy but I was always kind to other people. I may not have felt like I belonged but I’ve always truly loved helping others. I may not have felt good enough but I’m married to the best man I could imagine and am surrounded by caring friends. These things are what led me to be doing the work I love and becoming a kind, compassionate and caring person.

ACCEPTANCE is key here.

Accepting yourself, where you’re at.
Accepting help from others. Accepting that I feel uneasy about people reading this but I’m at the point in my life where helping others is more important. Knowing that sharing helps others.

I’m not even sure this was what I wanted to say (and I know there’s more), but if it helps just one person to know they’re not alone then it was worth writing it.

Remember to be patient and compasssionate to yourself. Know you can change your beliefs and your perspective and move towards the life you know you deserve.

In health and happiness, Dee xxx

PS. A huge thank you to the friend that offered to help me write this. Even though I didn’t take you up on the offer, knowing it was there was a huge comfort and support to me.

My Night Time Ritual

My Night Time Ritual

This month I’m resetting my night time routine. I’ve created a night time ritual that clears my mind and calms my soul so I’m ready for a good nights sleep.

I’m definitely a night person so having good wind down habits in the evening has always been a must for me.

I can easily just keep doing stuff right up until bedtime. I know the ‘experts’ say this is not the way to do things but this is when I feel good and I have time. To me it’s all about doing what works for you, working with what you’ve got and making the most of your energy and time. I have far more energy and motivation in the late afternoon and evening – this is when I feel inspired and motivated and work best.

Having said that I want to start to spend some more time winding down before I go to sleep.

So here’s my new night time ritual…

After dinner I may do a little bit of work – like writing a blog post for instance! Then I write in my business journal the 3 things I’ve achieved that day and if I need to I also write down anything that I’ve struggled with and possible solutions to those struggles along with anything I’ve learned that day. I look through my appointments for the next day and slot in anything extra from my weekly to do list. That way I don’t lay in bed thinking about it!

Then Andrew and I go for a walk. This can end up being quite late but it helps to relax my mind and body – I find it calming and clearing. It resets and balances my energy. It marks the end of my work day.

When I get back from our walk I do my basic skincare routine. For my face – a cleanse, tone and facial oil to deeply hydrate my skin. And for my body either my tranquillity body lotion or a body oil with some calming essential oils. About once a week I’ll add a face mask to my skincare routine. And I may also put an overnight conditioning treatment in my hair if I need it. Then I’ll clean my teeth, put on my pyjamas and get into bed.

When I’m comfy, yes, I’m going to admit it, I’ll check my phone (I’m human!) before I do a guided meditation and journalling. I’ll have essential oils diffusing or a few drops on a tissue under my pillow if I’ve forgotten to put the diffuser on! Sometimes it’s just lavender, or my Sweet Dreams blend. I also love Roman chamomile and sandalwood at the moment.

I’ve been trying different guided meditations from apps as well as YouTube. I did a Guided Gratitude Meditation the other night and the anxiety I was feeling just vanished! Having a gratitude practise is something I’ve found to be so powerful over the last few years – but I guess that’s another topic for another post! This month I’ve been a doing 5 – 15 minute guided meditation and it’s certainly making a difference.

My mind feels clearer, my body feels more relaxed. I feel calmer and it’s making a difference to my sleep and general state of mind.

Then I grab my journal and jot down any thoughts that popped up during the meditation or anything I need to get out of my brain from the day that’s still hanging around after my meditation.

If I can’t think of anything to write I’ll draw an oracle or tarot card and see what comes up. It’s always interesting to see where my mind goes from the simple theme of a card.

Most of these things aren’t new to me. Walking, essential oils and skincare are part of my life. For years I’ve been doing a little meditation when I get into bed, where I focus on my breath and relax each part of my body. And I’ve been doing nightly journalling on and off for a while now…I’m finding the daily consistency effectively clears my mind of any remaining clutter and thoughts from the day. The business journal is a new practice that I’m loving.

I know this seems like a lot but it actually doesn’t take long at all.

Each evening is a little bit different. I don’t walk every evening or write in my business journal if I’ve had a day off. For as long as I can remember my skincare routine and essential oils have been a non-negotiable. The meditation and journalling is something I’m aiming to do every night.

I’m finding these things to be a lovely combination that works for me. Calming. I’m enjoying this time to let go of the busyness of the day and finding my anxiety has reduced dramatically.

Do you take time to wind down with a night time ritual?

If not, what’s one thing you can do to calm your body and mind and prepare for a good nights sleep? Give it a go – I think you’ll find the effects will flow into all areas of your life.
