Its not often I find myself in a state of comparison, feeling my self worth gurgle down the drain with the kids bathwater. Most of the time I blissfully float along in my own bubble of contentment and peace.
But today, amongst the feelings of peace and new beginnings with this Taurus New Moon energy I am finding myself fleeting in and out of states of comparison.
'Everyone is doing amazing things, all the things I procrastinated about, and now Im just behind the times'
Bla Bla Bla.... Comparing myself, criticising the ounce of self worth I have left. What the hell Monkey Mind - STOP.
I could seriously scroll for days though all forms of 'social' media, in a state of low vibration procrastination. So as soon as the awareness creeps in that I am in this state of mind I am so grateful I have the tools and strategies at my fingertips to get out of this state of pure negativity.
Here they are in a simple 3 step approach:
1. Gather Up Your Energy
Sit for a moment in silence. No distractions, no devices, just you and the connection of oxygen, earth and gravity around you.
Take a mindful moment to breathe in, deeply into your being. And ask yourself -
2. Get Out Your Oils
With the amazing ability to carry a pure essential oil right to the centre of emotions - the Limbic Brain, the nasal system can be the key to getting you back on track.
Usually run by the 'Thinky" part of our brain the Limbic 'Emotion Brain' is responsible for our feelings, reactions and memories.
Our nasal system carries scent directly to the emotion brain and within a few short moments our 'feelings, reactions and memories' are all having an emotion response to that smell.
So when our feelings are telling us we are worthless, not up to scratch, not good enough, and our memories are recalling evidence of times we may have believed this to be true, our reactions are to go into survival mode - fight, flight, freeze, flee, faun, FAAARRRKKKK.......
Enter Oregano Oil. One of the Top Ten oils in the Family Essentials and Home Essentials kits.
Oregano is known as the Oil of Humility & Nonattachment. In the 'Emotions & Oils' guide, 2017 Edition, Oregano Oil is said to cut through the fluff of life and teach individuals to do the same. It removes blocks, clears negativity and cuts away negative attachments. Oregano Oil is Powerful.
'On the deepest level, Oregano dispels materialism and attachment that hinders growth and progress. While using Oregano, a person may feel encouraged to end a toxic relationship, quit an oppressive job, or end a destructive habit. These toxic attachments limit ones capacity to feel a healthy connection to the divine. Oregano encourages true spirituality by inviting the soul to live in non attachment and teaches that devotion to a higher power includes letting go of rigidity, wilfulness, negative attachments and materialism.'
Diffuse with companion oils of Thyme, Basil and /or clove. Always dilute for topical application in Fractionated coconut oil. Caution during pregnancy.
3. Consider The Gifts You Posses
If you are already playing the comparison game, whey not let positive, helpful competitors enter the ring.
You are an incredible and unique soul that has chosen to be born in this time, this place and this body to share your authentic self. No one is you. No one has your amazing spark. Your most innate skills and abilities may come so naturally to you that you fail to see them through the simplicity that they come to you, but to the rest of the world it could be just what they have been waiting and wishing for.
Take time out to ponder or journal the simple things that bring you joy and light. Especially in the company of a New Moon. There is no better time to cleanse and clear and realign your focus then within the energy of a new moon.
