I continue on my Kundalini yoga journey and I love how it keeps challenging me every week in ways I didn’t even realise it could. The physical challenges are definitely there but I never knew how many emotional challenges it would raise. This week, Fear raised its ugly head. Fear makes things so damn complicated in life in general. If we are living fearful we are not completely trusting, we are giving in to, in a sense to EGO! Playing it safe and just surviving so that we don’t have to face what scares the hell out of us. That voice that is full of doubt, raring its ugly head and it definitely has no place here anymore. So my gorgeous yoga teacher suggested making an essential oil blend for TRUST. She knows me so well and knows just how much I love playing with essential oils and creating new rollers. So that is one of the things that I did. I also booked a Reiki session with my Reiki Master, he is such a soft, kind, gentle soul who always tells me exactly what I need to hear.
So this morning began in all the usual ways but i felt a strong pull towards spending some time with my oils. So I read a little about what oils may be good for letting go of Fear and instilling Trust and this is what I came up with.
Lavender heals all, breaks down the negative self talk and also helps with stress and anger. Lemongrass is awesome at promoting the release of negative blocks. Ylang Ylang is wonderful at promoting cellular regeneration and supporting emotional wellbeing. Geranium works well with out heart chakra to support emotions of the heart. Cinnamon Bark helping to bust through fear. Frankincense just because, and Grapefruit to help let go of judgement of oneself and others. By the way if you need any of these oils, go to the shop tab or send me a message.
Then I worked out which oils fit into top, middle and base notes. Ideally you have 5 to 20% in the top note, 50 to 80% in the middle note and 5 to 20% in the base note. Then I calculated the percentage of each oil I was going to add. I am making up a 10 ml roller, I wanted 50% fractionated coconut oil. I am using Doterra Essential oils and I have complete faith in knowing that these oils are perfectly pure for me and I know that this ratio works for me. If you have sensitive skin you may want to dilute it more. (Try googling blending essential oils for sensitive skin). I added the fractionated coconut oil first as I wanted to add crystals and wanted to ensure that there was 50% fractionated coconut oil. hope that makes sense.
I then decided what crystals had properties that I wanted to work with for building trust and releasing fear. I also went with what I was drawn to. I came up with Green Aventurine for healing of the heart, a general harmoniser, releasing old patterns and habits such as negative self talk, brings in optimism. Rose Quartz as it is the stone of unconditional love and brings love, gives love and allows you to receive love. Black Tourmaline is a powerful protective and grounding stone. Protects against negative thoughts and encouraging a positive attitude and outlook on life. Amethyst the stone of intuition and Devine Guidance. To enhance intuition in this situation will naturally bring more trust and help us to release fear. My crystals are all reiki activated.
Rolling this blend over my heart chakra, on my wrists and saying these affirmations
I am open to releasing my fears. I completely love and accept myself. I release any old patterns and completely trust the process of life. I am always Divinely guided and protected.
What are you working on releasing?
