When people talk, listen completely.
Don’t be thinking about what you’re going to say.
Most people never listen nor do they observe.
You should be able to go into a room and
when you come out know everything that
you saw there and not only that.
If that room gave you any feeling you should know exactly what it was that gave you that feeling.
I love this quote. As an intuitive, energy practitioner, and educator it is one of my greatest honors to listen, observe and feel. It is important for the gathering of information that I receive that will assist me to be able to offer guidance and presence.
Being fully present in the now goes for all parts of our lives so we can really experience our day-to-day world and the people around us.
I have found in my own life that being present, mindful and connected to my feelings has helped me to discern truth from illusion, as well as beliefs, perceptions, and patterns that I may have not noticed when not fully engaged and present.
One of the ways I prepare myself to help me stay present and in the moment when I am working with clients– is by using essential oil alchemy to help me.
The two aromatic synergies that I work with are the Aroma*Calm and the Aroma*Clarity from our Aroma*Essentials Synergy line. I use them to help me get clear, focused and calm so I can open up my ability to listen, feel, observe and be present.
I may place a few drops of Aroma*Clarity in the diffuser and put Aroma*Calm on my heart chakra, or dab a bit of Aroma*Clarity on my 3rd eye point (in a carrier oil of course) and diffuse Aroma*Calm in the diffuser. It depends on what I am guided to do in each situation.
I have been given the honor to work with others. I know it is a gift, and that each situation or person I come in contact with is a holy encounter. I want to show up in the best way possible: to be my finest self and a clear channel for holding sacred space.
Having aromatic tools to support me and the work I do is part of Living an Aromatic Lifestyle for me.
I invite you to explore the power of working with essential oil alchemy to help you stay calm, clear and present. To assist you to be more aware of your feelings, and to trust the observations and information that you are receiving.
As we know, it takes discipline to stay present and to be conscious of all the beautiful things this life wants to offer us. Essential oils alchemy may just be the answer in achieving this.
Be present, be clear, be calm.
