I Haven’t Been Entirely Honest with You.

 

By now you are already familiar with my aromatherapy blends and I’m so thankful for all of the support you have given me and Soulful Essence. When I started this company I wanted to find a way to help people tune into their true self by connecting to nature. I truly believe that’s the key to finding compassion and creating joy.

I’ve been using my blends to do just that for many years now and they have had an amazing impact on my personal and professional life. In fact, each blend that I have created has been a result of a specific need in my life. At first it was a huge challenge to open myself up to you and expose my creativity and my art. Over time, once I got to know you better, it became easier and easier. Your support has been more amazing than I could have ever hoped for and I’m so grateful that you have been so encouraging and interested in what I have to offer. I’m even more grateful for the opportunity Soulful Essence has given me to make a difference in so many peoples lives. I’m continually overjoyed to hear stories from people, I don’t even know, telling me what an impact my blends have made in their life.

The funny thing is that the more people share with you, the more you want to share with them. Over the past several months I’ve been on a journey to become a better version on myself. It started with the 30 Days of Mindful Living in September and has been ongoing ever since. I even outlined my very own Mindful Living plan based on the amazing advice we received from our mindful living experts. What I’m starting to realize is that we are already the perfect version of ourselves, we just have so much junk churning in our heads it distracts us from who we really are. Sounds simple, right? But sometimes it’s not as easy as it sounds. That’s one of the main reasons I created my blends!

So now I’m on a mission to start clearing away all that junk and mindful living is a big part of that. Since then, I’ve realized that I’m not being completely honest with you about my products and how I feel they can best be used. Affirmations and intentions have become a big part of my life. Something sacred and precious to me and I don’t really feel comfortable about sharing that part of me with anyone. Once I realized just how uncomfortable that I became when talking about affirmations, I decided to look into it a bit further and of course I discovered that it basically boils down to a fear of failure, rejection and just not being liked! (Thanks Denise Padilla of River Water Healing for helping me work through this!) 

What I realized is that exposing yourself, and making yourself vulnerable is ALWAYS going to be uncomfortable, but that’s the only way we can really grow. So that’s why I’ve decided to “come out of the closet” with my affirmations and how I feel my sacred creations should really be used. No, it’s not easy for me and yes I am freakin’ terrified to do this, but I know I owe it to you, not to keep this to myself. Yes, some people may not like it and some people may think it’s weird and that’s ok. I’m not doing this for them. I’m doing it for you and for me.

So I invite you to take a look at the new concept for my blends. I hope you enjoy the affirmations and that, when you use them with the blends, they help you as much as they have helped me. I’d love to hear what you think and if you have any suggestions. Please let me know your thoughts in the comments below. 

Thanks!!
