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 abound
in your mind that what I am about to say could help would actually help you, 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. I also recommend that you purchase 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.
This is what you would do with each of the oils 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 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 fill your heart with more joy that you could possibly
imagine right now; you will be then able to share that joy 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.
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 and get a 24% discount.
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 retail customer, or, if you want to save 24% on each order later, get yourself a wholesale membership by purchasing a Premium Starter Kit. Put their name and number as the person who referred you to the company (in both the Sponsor
and Enroller sections of the application).
**Mine is 918382 if you don’t have a referral; the name you would put put in each line is
If you want to get a membership,
proceed to purchase the Premium Starter Kit, which will come with 12 essential oils (5-ml each) and a diffuser. One of the oils that comes with it will be the oil of Valor.
Add to your order a 15-ml bottle of Joy, as well as a bag of roller-ball fitments. The kit will come with one fitment, but you will need another one; it’s always nice
to have these fitments around so that you can make any oil bottle a roller-bottle. I also recommend you get the V6 oil so that when your Joy and Valor oils are half way gone you can add V6 oil to the top and they will each last you double the time.
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”, read through the final blog post of this series - part 3.
