PART 2: "Testing the Waters"

Being a part of a grief support group is good and useful, but only for a season. If you continue to focus on the traumatic event, your life will never change; you will not be able to move forward. You will continue to feel depressed on most days, longing desperately for things not to have happened, when the reality is that they DID happen and that we can never go back to change the past. 

What we CAN do, though, is that we can refocus our thoughts on a path that leads to JOY and PURPOSE. So, my question to you is… are you ready to at least “test the waters”? 


If doubts that what I am about to say could help would actually help you abound in your mind, but you are at least willing to give it a try, this is what I want you to do:

Purchase the essential oils of Joy and Valor from Young Living and apply them every day, with intention, not as a “magical potion” that will magically get your mind into a better place; optionally, you could also purchase the blend called Peace and Calming. I also recommend that you consider purchasing roller ball fitments from the company, since these are the best ones I have seen on the market, and proceed to apply one on each bottle for an easy, hands-free application each day. 


Your New Morning Routine:

This is what you will do with each of them every morning as you get ready for the day:

1. Grab your Valor bottle. Roll it on the back of your neck and as far down your back bone as you can go. As you do this, remind yourself that it is God who grants you the COURAGE (the valor) to move forward; He will be with you every step of the way. You have the power of the Holy Spirit within you, a power that is far greater that your self-will and self-motivation, which will eventually fail us. As you surrender to Him, you will become more confident each day to let go of the sorrow you have been holding on to so tightly for so long, and go out and help others either online or offline (wherever you are prompted to do so).

 2. Grab your oil of Joy. Roll it on behind your ears as a perfume, and/or over your heart. Remind yourself that it is God’s joy that will give you the strength to move on. As you surrender your grief and your pain, He will trade your sorrow for His joy; He will fill your heart with more joy that you could possibly imagine right now so that you will be then able to share it with those who are suffering. You will be able to comfort others as you focus on the joy He is giving you, instead of on the pain, the traumatic event, that you’ve been holding on to for dear life up until now, but which has not allowed you to truly enjoy life anymore; at least not enjoy it to its fullest extent.


So, how do you purchase the things I mentioned?

 Well, if you are already a Young Living member - awesome! You will be able to simply go online and purchase the oils, roller ball fitments and V6 oil. 

 *** If you are NOT YET A MEMBER, please contact the person who shared this blog post with you and ask them for their “sponsor ID number” so that you can fill out the online application to either become a Young Living member. Put their name and number as the person who referred you to the company (in both the Sponsor and Enroller sections of the application). ** If you purchase $100 in products, you will be able to get a 24% on ever order you place for the next 12 months, including this first one.


Now you are ready to “test the waters”; you are ready to see if the oils, applied as I mentioned before, will help you, and if you would like to then proceed to share about them with others so that they too can refocus their thoughts on joy and on living a life that is filled with purpose - sharing a message of hope with others 


** If you are ready to take the “quantum leap” into the deep waters, ready to go “all in” right away instead of just “testing the waters”, then read through the next blog post - part 3 “Taking the Quantum Leap”

This is very true. That is my one desire and goal as well, to please Him and bring Him glory, way less of me and so much more of Him.
