Serenity Inside Job Magical Blessings

Serenity is an Inside Job Part 3

Serenity is a way for you to make courageous and wise decisions that will change your life. This was my word for 2017. I have not ever chosen a word to be my word of the year. So, I was not sure how this would show up in my life.

Wise Courage 

Serenity Inside Job Change Chance Transition Transformation Magical Blessings Courage WisdomSo many changes showed up for me. There have been days where my head spins and I wonder where I get off the out of control roller coaster, and then suddenly things calm down. The best attribute for my personal growth was the disallowance of being a peace keeper. Early on in my life, I learned to be given love was through peaceful negations with family members. In truth, this is not the greatest affect for anyone. Therefore, being courageous to walk away from things that did not serve me was one of the bravest and wisest experiences for serenity.

You, too, be courageous to walk way from anything that no longer severs you. If this sounds wonky, think of this as a mission and if the mission went away or feels like it is over; move on. You will be glad that you did.

Clarifying Self-Confidence 

Intuitive and serenity go hand and hand for you. I found a much deeper intuitive connection that lead me to more  self- confidence. We are all here to grow and learn. Even the bravest and most fearless have things that can stop them in their tracks. You need to keep moving, learning and growing. Let go of complacency. Move onward and discover that through clarity your self-confidence arises in a whole new way.

This may require change. It may be an big adjustment. Step back and be gentle with yourself during a time of transition. There is no race. You will not win nor lose; it is all about the wonderful discoveries along the way. Let go of expectations and let yourself grow, learn and courageously shift.

Bringing it to my Soul

Serenity brought me much closer to my soul. Each step and shift adjust my sails and brought me to other destinations unknown. A destination does not have to be a location. This can also be a moment in time. A way for your to traverse the new by letting go of the old.

Let it Go, Let it Flow meditations and resurgence of painting @ my Heart Loft brought so much serene moments  for me. Yes, this brought forth much change; in fact I was in transition all of 2017. Yet, this also brought for one of my greatest dreams to build my dream home. 2018 will bring forth this dream and it all began with calm, courageous change.

I can do it! 

You can do it! 

Let’s do this together!

Serenity Inside Job Magical Blessings

How Serenity is an Inside Job Part 2

Serenity comes from a deep inner connection of peace, courage and wisdom. You are able to make the changes that you need. What if you are unable to make a decision or change, then what?

Change 

Serenity Inside Job Change Chance Transition Transformation Magical Blessings Courage WisdomChange is something that we discovery early on. How this is presented to your developing self is also how you will handle change.

Ultimately, change is the ability to make something different. This could be a simple as making a dot over the letter i or a heart. Or this could be as complex as a seed that continues to shift into different stages of growth to become that blooming flower.

Either way, change is different. Some people love differences and some fall into a complacent category. They find something that they like a certain way and continue this over and over. A toddler that likes only one meal and insists this to be the only food they will enjoy. Some parents will allow this and others will not.

How this change was presented to you is why you have anxiety.

Stop & reflect back to your childhood. Did you like change?

How was this presented to you with gentle kindness and nudges or full on I am the adult and you will do as I say assault?

If you were given the latter of the two suggestions is why you may dislike change. Yet, staying complacent is not for your greatest benefit.

Rolling with the Punches

Sure we have all heard of roll with the punches or if it ain’t broken don’t fix it. Let’s look at this in a different manner. Life will have its challenges; its ups & downs. Serenity provides the courage to be wise, and how to offer this wisdom so that others will respect you. If they choose not to respect you; then that is on them; you’ve done nothing wrong. You will  show your power in another way; you decided to take the bull by the horns and just go for it.

Don’t let others get you down. You are amazing. So, someone didn’t like a pitch. Okay, there are others who may. Someone disliked your style of dressing; so be it, and why would you care what they think. Seriously, are they in charge of you. Nope! Therefore, do not be afraid to be the voice of reason or change.

In fact, I have found that one of my gifts in life is to be the pot stirrer.  I do not think inside the box, and bring a fresh new perspective. If I stood back, nothing would change; in many situations I was the influencer, the innovator. Imagine if I did not find my voice to speak up and anxiously sat there. Nothing would have changed; and just like that I swoop in, create Divine Spirit’s changes and fly away to other assignments. On more than one occasion, I have been called a bitch or an angel depending on who responded.  Many of the changes that I brought were life altering and even life saving.

Go ahead and be the serene change!

Self-Confidence 

Believe in You Natasha Botkin Magical Blessings Now this brings up a touchy subject, but depending on how change was presented to you also affected your self-confidence. If you feel like a spawning salmon always swimming upstream to spawn, mate and die; yeah, this can have a negative impact. This breaks ya down; big time.

If you were given a gentle nudge and allowed to express your ideas and concerns you were also taught how to offer ideas and suggestions with confidence. This positively builds you up; big time.

Part of your personal growth is to discover what works and does not work for you. This should not hinder your progression. You deserve to have confidence and bring forth serenity.

Do it! Be the courageous wise one!

Many Uses Lavender Essential Oil Aromatherapy calm relax restore transform

The Many Uses of Lavender

Let’s explore the many uses of lavender. Some may call this folktale remedies, the yesteryear of a traveling medicine man, a witch brewing her concoction or a Native Medicine Man/Woman. Lavender has many essences to help you with emotional and mental health.

Why Lavender is Useful

Lavender is a very versatile herb and flower.  Most of us use the flower buds.

  • Relaxing
  • Restorative
  • Eases anxieties
  • Soothes anger
  • Calms over activity (ADD/ADHD) or helps slow down an overactive mind
  • Meditation
  • Decorative
  • Edible
  • Essential Oil

Herb 

lavender book serene tranquil calm restore relax rest transformLavender is an herb that has so many wonderful uses. Not only is this gorgeous to grow in your yard, but is also a great houseplant.

Imagine for a moment a meditation room with ivory walls, a light silk fabric flowing with the air movement and the aroma of a lavender plant naturally calming this space. To me, this sounds like a serene meditation space to relax and restore you in a sea of serenity.

Dry the lavender blooms and voila more uses.

  • Add a 1/4 tsp lavender buds, 1/4 tsp chamomile blooms, and 1 tsp marshmallow root to brew a nice relaxing tea. You may sweeten this with 1 tsp cane sugar, honey or whatever you enjoy. This will soothe your mind, body and spirit.
  • Make a lavender satchel with dried lavender buds. This wonderful aroma can be use for you, your linen or lingerie draws, or as a gift.
  • Use lavender buds for a floral pick me up in any room.
  • Place lavender buds on a gift or gift tag.
  • Sprinkle lavender buds in your pillowcase for a restful slumber.
  • Tie lavender buds together and create a decorative sweetly scented wreath.

 

Essential Oil

  • Place a drop or two of lavender essential oil with 1-2 drops of coconut oil on a cotton ball and tuck this in your bra for an all day and natural stress reliever.
  • Use 2-3 drop of l.e.o in your bath with Epsom salt and this soothes your tired, sore muscles.
  • Add 1-2 drops of l.e.o. to sugar. Step in shower, use the sugar scrub  on your body; next,  turn on the shower water to wash off and reveal sparkly soft skin
  • Place 1-2 drops of l.e.o and c.o on the bottom of a child’s foot who refuses to sleep and poof, voila slumber.
  • Add 3-4 drop of l.e.o into a diffuser and fill your space with this serene aroma.

 Animal Friends

I am not a fan of the harsh anti-flea remedies. So,  I located at my health food store a natural option with lavender and other herbs collar.  Fortunately, I have also found soothing anti-anxiety lavender collars for my dog who was terrified of fireworks; and I would even spray l.e.o on her bed during high firework seasons.  This helped calm her down.

Edible

Yep, you can eat and ingest lavender buds. Edible lavender helps soothe your mind body and spirit in a gentle way.

  • A favorite treat of mine in the hot summer is lavender mint ice tea.
  • Another sweet treat is lavender sugar.
  • Once upon a time local bakery baked the most incredible lemon & lavender muffins.

The possibilities are endless with lavender.  

Oodles of Love,
