There is something to be said for “looking at the world through rose coloured glasses”.
Infusing love, grace and gratitude with compassion and forgiveness for self and others, allows you to release or move through challenging emotions and see things from a more expanded viewpoint.
Without critical self-talk, blaming and shaming ourselves and others we can cultivate stillness and calm. From this heart centred space all the various expressions of love such as courage, being true to yourself, restraint instead of re-activeness, generosity, tolerance and forgiveness are all more available to us.
Essential oils are perfect companions for these practices because they have a gentle affinity with the heart and the emotional brain. Bypassing the rational mind, they help soothe challenging emotions and gently soften the heart, creating space for a shift in your perceptions and feelings towards the most challenging situations.
Use my Beloved blend to go beneath any hurts, sense how you are feeling, attend to those feelings with mindful compassion and identify what you need to be soothed. A simple act of self-love; a sacred pause to reconnect to the beautiful essence of your spirit coupled with a forgiveness practice can bring a little bit of peace and a more empowered state of being.
You can use this blend in a diffuser, a personalised perfume, massage or bath.
