Seventeen years ago, during one of my “sneezing fits,” somebody handed me a little bottle and said, “Just sniff this and then put a drop under your nose.”
Little did I know how much that o.n.e. sniff would impact my entire life!
I stopped sneezing! My head cleared and when I walked outside, I smelled fresh dirt for the first time in a long time!
I was gifted that little bottle, so I went home and started searching the internet to find out what it was. I ordered another one and that started my quest to understand what, how, when, and why it worked so well.
I’ve learned so much over the years! I thought I was “born allergic” yet I soon learned that I was causing so much of my sneezing fits with the decisions I was making.
You see, I WAS “born allergic” but not in the way I once believed. My body – like your body – was created in the image of God and I truly doubt He sneezes all day long like I once did! I learned that those sneezing fits were my body’s way of getting my attention because I was surrounding it with fake fragrances and other products (many that I trusted because of their ads and labeling) that contained ingredients that were NOT supporting a healthy lifestyle
I learned that even when labels say, “all natural,” “non-toxic,” “eco-friendly,” “organic,” etc., they still may contain ingredients that make me sneeze.
So, am I telling you that one drop from that little bottle stopped all that sneezing forever? NO! That would be dishonest because I still sneeze when I’m around things that are unhealthy for my body. Rather than view those sneezes as a genetic flaw, I appreciate them as my personal alert system to protect me from things that are unhealthy.
What that one drop did was open my eyes and consequently my world to taking more responsibility for what I allow on, into, and around my body. Knowledge is power and I’d love to share some of this knowledge with you.
Is there something in your life that you didn’t choose yet must find a way to face, deal with, accept?
It may be something permanent that you simply cannot change. Like the loss of a job, or the death of a beloved pet, friend, or family member. It could be something temporary that’s causing you lots of anguish like misplaced keys or thunderstorms raining on your pool party. It could even be a broken strap on your favorite pair of sandals!
We’re all familiar with the Serenity Prayer: “God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference”
There’s a reason the word accept comes first in that familiar prayer and that’s because we need to see something as it truly is before we can determine whether we can or want to change it. Notice that acceptance comes before change and wisdom.
Acceptance is the opposite of avoidance. It helps us ground ourselves in reality so that we can decide to change and move forward.
There’s an essential oil blend that I like to use when dealing with some of the curveballs that life sends my way. This blend helps calm my mind and remind me that acceptance is the first step in viewing my current true position.
I like to compare acceptance to planning a trip to an exciting new place. I need to know where I currently am in order to decide whether and how I can get to that new place.
The blend is called…..are you ready for this….. Acceptance.™ I sometimes wear it as a perfume and often diffuse it when moving on to new and better things.
It has some beautiful single oils like Geranium, Bergamot, Frankincense, Royal Hawaiian Sandalwood, citrus oils, Rose and Jasmine. Even though Acceptance™ blend contains 19 single oils, its aroma is fresh, light and uplifting.
If you’re facing things in your life that are causing you to lose your way or feel mired in a maze of doubt and uncertainty, maybe some Acceptance™ will help you the way it helps me. Who knows, it might even do BETTER things for you!
Now, here’s the best part! You can now order just a bottle of Acceptance™ (or ANY OTHER product regardless of price!) without needing to buy a starter kit!! Yep, that’s right and when you choose “Subscribe” when checking out, you can schedule another bottle or anything else you might like to be shipped to you in 1, 2, of 3 months and that will unlock the 24% discount on your purchase and whatever you subscribe to buy in the coming months. If you’re uncertain, just poke around the website until you find something that appeals to you and add that to your subscription order. For example, you could subscribe to get Acceptance™ this month and add a bottle of Orange essential oil – I call that one “liquid sunshine” - in 3 months.
Now, here’s another best part! You’ll be a Young Living Customer rather than a “wholesale distributor.” That means you can shop for exactly what you want when you want it and never be expected to sell any of the products, sponsor other members, host any parties, etc.
Young Living has always offered the BEST essential oils and oil-infused products on the planet. Now, it’s become the BEST source for creating healthy homes for each of us and a healthy world for all of us.
