Valentine's Day is upon us….
… and it is a "holiday" that creates mixed emotions and expectations for many of us. Personally, Valentine's Day is one of my favorite days because it is a reminder to love everything and everyone, and to honor our connection to love and be loved.
I guess you could call me a a kind of love gangster!
One of my "get real with life" mentors is Danielle Laporte.
She inspired this "love gangster" practice based on her Desire Map work.
Here's a practice to do at the end of each day:
As you lay in your bed wandering off to sacred dream land, ask yourself,
"How do I wish to Ultimately feel?"
You will want to choose an aspect of your day to focus on : body, work, relationship, home, spirit, etc.
And go there….wherever that place takes you. Do you wish to feel held, acknowledged, nourished, passionate, sexy, playful, radiant. You name it. Go there!
And then create experiences in your day that allow those feelings you desire to take shape.

Some of the feelings that most often radiate through my spirit are qualities of warmth, grace, passion, soft, sweet and sexy.
I take small moments in my day to make sure that those qualities are nurtured. And, one of the ways I conjure experiences for myself daily is through essential oils.
The scent and quality of certified pure therapeutic grade essential oils are amazing and incredibly healing.
One of my favorites is doTERRA's Whisper. Whisper is a delicious blend of my favorite oils : ylang yang flower, vetiver root, cinnamon bark, jasmine flower absolute, rose flower, Hawaiian sandalwood, bergamot peel, patchouli leaf, cocoa bean absolute and vanilla bean absolute all based in fractionated coconut oil. Pure Yum!!!
Whisper works harmoniously with each person's unique chemistry and I personally love it as an everyday oil. It's intoxicating and also incredibly calming and nourishing.
Another one of my favorite perfume lines that uses essential oils is The Goddess Line.
The oils are named after deities and they are all so gorgeous. Simply divine.
Lastly, another amazing blend that is absolutely exquisite is Young Living's Lady Sclareol™.
This blend was designed as a fragrance and is made of essential oils : clary sage, jasmine, vetiver, ylang ylang, Idaho blue spruce, spearmint, hinoki, geranium, Royal Hawaiian sandalwood, orange, Spanish sage, coriander and bergamot.
A beguiling and alluring blend of most of my favorite essential oils!
Whatever your pleasure takes you, whether it be scent or taste or touch or sound, may your Valentine's day be filled with beauty, bounty and bliss!
Wishing you a day of sacred love … today and everyday. You are loved!!!!
Note: I am a distributor of doTERRA essential oils and I use (AND LOVE) oils from all of these brands.
There is never any pressure to sell or be a part of a team when you buy from me.
I simply wish to share the joys and pleasure of these oils and I hope you will find benefit in using them.
