It starts with a little disappointment followed by self doubt. Then something else goes wrong and once again I feel the sadness overwhelm me and the darkness creep in. As I finish the work tasks for the day I am exhausted. I forget to do my nightly self care which for me includes doTerra essential oils to assist me in relaxing. I know how important self care is. I also know that but with self care there are always bumps along the way.
Earlier this week the darkness set in and it carried over to the next morning. I struggled to get out of bed. As I laid there spiraling I recognized the feelings. I had to make a choice. I could stay there in bed or I could get up and start taking care of myself and my family. I applied Motivate Emotional Aromatherapy Blend on my wrists and Frankincense on the top of my head (crown charka). I told my children I needed a few minutes to myself. I laid down on my bed, took deep, and mediated.
I believe the key of coming our for the darkness quicker is recognizing the feelings and then taking care of those feelings with self care. After taking care of myself I was able to continue with my daily tasks. I am grateful for the skills I have learned as well as the different essential oils I have to support myself.
Please remember everyone has his or her own journey. No one experience abuse exactly the same. We each have our own triggers and my intent is to aid in the healing process and it is to add awareness to a growing problem not cause anxiety or pain. . Our experience may be similar but they are each unique. Even though many people could have been at the same event each person experiences and remembers those events through our own eyes and will recall the event differently. My blogs will be from my perspective of my life I am a daughter, sister, wife, mother and friend. I am not a Doctor, Counselor or Therapist. I believe it is important to work with Doctors, Counselors, and Therapist along with Energy Healing, Essential Oils and spirituality to find health, healing and balance.
