GOAL SETTING WITH ESSENTIAL OILS
This post is contributed by One Drop business manager – Kaye Ng
There is something abt the YL community, or perhaps its age – I never used to care so much about goals, planning, milestones and what I wanted to achieve.
But since starting with YL, building a my own business and being with like minded friends, Ive come to realize how important it is to set the tone right for the year.
Im really excited to start the year, and I have a few goals I have set for myself in the areas of business, finance, relationship and health.
Just as I was setting my goals and starting to track my progress, I saw this post from YL and I thought it was a really good one. So here I am sharing it with some other inputs from myself. heh 😛
Essential oils can be a great tool to help you envision, create, and achieve your goals.
Whether it’s losing weight, saving more money, or growing your business, only eight percent of people achieve their New Year’s goals!
The primary reason people do not accomplish their resolutions is that they do not know HOW to set the right goals and create a plan to achieve them.
As you set your goals, use essential oils to help foster a creative environment and bring you to place of positivity, abundance, and openness to receiving prosperity.
Aromas have a profound impact in your mind. The sense of smell is the only one of your senses that has a direct connection to the limbic lobe of your brain. The limbic system is made of structures that play a major role in mood, memory, behavior, and emotion. Knowing this helps us understand why smell plays such an important role in memory, thought processes, mood, perception, and emotions.
The sense of smell is closely linked with memory. A fragrance can evoke memories and emotions before we are consciously aware of it. You may even be able to think of smells that trigger particular memories such as homemade bread or fresh-cut grass.
A number of studies have shown that smells trigger more intense and vivid emotional memories and are better at triggering that feeling of “being brought back in time” than images.
How can this help when setting and sticking to your New Year’s resolutions? Specific scents can help you bring back your intentions, remember why you started, and stay motivated. Aromas can also help you overcome false beliefs and negative or defeating thoughts about yourself.
Using essential oils as you set your goals:
Step 1: Create a smart goal.
Use Envision EO as you are thinking about what goals you want to achieve.
Envision stimulates creativity and resourcefulness and helps encourage renewed faith in the future, as well as maintaining the fortitude necessary to achieve goals. It is a blend of Spruce, Geranium, Orange, Lavender, Sage, and Rose essential oils. Envision helps awaken and renew that drive to overcome fear and begin experiencing new, more rewarding dimensions.
Place a drop or two in the palms of your hands, rub together, then cup over your nose and inhale. As you read my goals, slowly inhale the refreshing aroma and feel a sense of empowerment to achieve them.
Step 2: Review your goals each morning while mediating, pondering, or saying affirmations.
Use Abundance as you state your affirmations or review your goals each morning. The wonderful aroma of Abundance can help you create a positive environment!
Abundance combines oils such as Orange and Ginger, which were used by ancient cultures to attract prosperity and magnify joy and peace. This blend contains Orange, Frankincense, Patchouli, Clove, Ginger, Myrrh, Cinnamon, and Black Spruce.
Step 3: Remind yourself why started when you experience setbacks.
Use Joy essential oil if you start to feel discouraged or when you need an extra boost of confidence in yourself! Joy creates a joyful and happy aromatic experience when applied to the wrists or heart. It also produces an aroma that brings feelings of joy to the heart, mind, and soul. Setbacks will happen to everyone, and it is important to keep yourself in a positive frame of mind.
Joy is a combination of floral and citrus essential oils, including Ylang Ylang, Geranium, Jasmine, Palmarosa, Rose, Bergamot, Lemon, and Tangerine. It has the ability to uplift and inspire a positive outlook.
Step 4: Take action!
Apply En-R-Gee or Motivation to your wrists and the bottoms of your feet, determine the single most important action to take today in order to achieve your aim, and then go for it! Once the planning, visualizing, and goal setting has been done, the make-it-or-break-it moment of truth comes in using that preparation and motivation to propel you into action. Even the smallest action can begin the momentum, and small actions consistently over time will yield success.
Is a blend that offers an invigorating aromatic boost when you need it most. Enjoy the stimulating, spicy-pine fragrance of Rosemary, Juniper, Lemongrass, Nutmeg, Balsam Fir, Clove, and Black Pepper essential oils.
This powerful blend combines Roman Chamomile, Black Spruce, Ylang Ylang and Lavender. The powerful scent of Motivation may promote feelings of action and accomplishment when diffused.
Another great way to keep yourself accountable is sharing your goals with a supportive friend or community.
Here are some other oils that I have found which you can use for motivation and the new year:
- Frankincense Essential Oil
This is the oil to use to erase your fear of failing your New Year’s resolutions! Frankincense is also said to encourage creativity, concentration and inspiration. It’s the ultimate essential oil to help you to conquer your New Year’s resolutions!
- Lemon Essential Oil
Lemon helps to rejuvenate the mind and to promote clear thinking. It is also a great scent to increase alertness! You can use lemon to help stick with your New Year’s resolutions!
- Peppermint Essential Oil
Peppermint is a very invigorating oil – use it to help you think more clearly and to focus on what you want to accomplish! Diffuse it or apply to the back of your neck to feel revitalized.
Peppermint is also said to help you to have an open mind to receive new ideas – perfect for the new year!
- Sandalwood Essential Oil
Sandalwood is a very grounding oil, in that it is said to help you to stay focused. That would probably make it a great oil to diffuse while making your New Year’s resolutions list! It is also said to help reduce indecision so that you can stay firm in your resolutions!
