As an empath, I have learned that I am sensitive to energy. Which this morning felt so very heavy.
Even before getting ready this morning, I pulled out my travel oil collection and began applying Adaptiv, Beautiful, Past Tense and Tea Tree. Aroma’s are something that I have aligned with, I can smell something and it can instantly bring back memories, calm, uplift, ground… plus the benefits of the oils themselves also way beyond the scent! So I leaned in. I had full intentions of getting up and working out this morning, honestly it probably would have helped me. But I just couldn’t do it.
The announcement yesterday, that we knew was coming… hit me today. Does it directly affect me, with my job no not technically. As we are considered “essential”. Some of my fav stores are now shut down and that is upsetting. Sure I can buy online, but sometimes that’s not the point, sometimes there are things that I walk in and see and want to try or forgot I needed… all of which are personal care items. I am planning to do painting this weekend, yes I should have went sooner to the hardware store to get what I needed and will now have to call it in. I guess its one way to not spend money… but Im just feeling done with all of this. The biggest factor is my kids. One is already home, switched to remote for 3 days of school. Who knows what the public health official will pull days before spring break is over. So much uncertainty and very little respect honestly.
I saw this post yesterday and it completely summed it up…
This morning I was feeling very frustrated, funny my sweater I was wearing got caught twice on my door knob as I walked by. The 2nd time it happened, I literally laughed and said ok, I know I need to ground my brain. Which has helped. When I stopped myself and literally said WHY… Why does my energy feel so heavy, why does this make me feel so frustrated, slightly angry…
Seven years ago I leaned into a gentle pull, I had looked at Oregano Oil at the Pharmacy before (please do not buy it there – as much as I am a HUGE supporter of shopping local – the essential oil industry is not regulated, please do your research before purchasing. This is why I choose doTERRA Oils with very rigorous and respected testing and quality) and took a leap to attend a natural health and wellness class. That night forever changed my life and health. Every single person has the right to choose what is right for their health and their body. However that is the complete opposite of what is being marketed to us… yes marketed. The government of Canada has spent over $240 BILLION dollars in 8 months (Dec 7/20 Source).
I know my frustration I am feeling is related to the fact that I know first hand how shifting your lifestyle CAN have a dramatic effect on your physical and emotional health. Yet, all the government is pushing in their ads is to stay away from anyone you do not live with, cover your face with a mask and use hand sanitizer. Out of that $240 Billion dollars I have yet to see one ad about shifting your health to choose healthier products, to ditch the fast food, junk food and really understand the ingredients in the products that you buy.
Honestly Im pissed off. Does this affect my day to day in a big way. No, thankfully. Does it affect my kids, yes in a big way. There is so much uncertainty. Do I need to better plan ahead, yes. Will I shift out of what I am currently doing and the products I am currently using to simply buy them at the grocery store or pharmacy NOPE.
I truly pray that these next 4 weeks people will really lean in, take a deep dive into themselves, and then go deeper. How can you shift your life and your health. What little step could you take today, maybe reading the ingredients on your dishwasher detergent and dish soap. Or your shampoo and conditioner. Any product that goes IN and ON your body, check out the ingredients. We have already seen recall notices through the government for hand sanitizers… I recently heard about blue masks as well being recalled that potentially could cause early lung toxicity, as it did in animals.
Why is this upsetting? Well honestly, everyone should be pissed. The government mandates that masks must be worn… personally, its should be your personal choice. If you feel a mask protects you, great. It should not be forced on anyone, especially now a year later of covid-19 these warnings come out… Is the government really to be trusted? I know my answer to that!
So I will continue leaning in. I will slow down. Focus more on me, my kids and my husband and our home. I have some projects planned this weekend that I know will instantly give me a boost. The sun is out and shining and the weather warming up. Plus I have full faith in my holistic health options that we have been using the past almost 7 years. Yup same lifestyle that helped me get off all pharmaceutical medications AND loose 60lbs naturally between 2017-2019 and early April 2021, I am stoked to say my health as I approach 40 is only getting better!!!
Before I do anything, I naturally research. Exactly what I did June 2014 after the wellness class I attended. The information was fantastic, opened my eyes wide, but I am the type who needs to see it to believe it. So I came home and researched. Much like I have been doing this past year.
I know what works for MY health… I know what keeps me healthy – ME! I know my responsibility to live a healthy lifestyle is up to ME and no one else. I am so grateful I jumped into the holistic health world and have never looked back, haha even at times people literally made fun of me and my “voodoo”…
There is no holding back now! No shying away or worrying what someone might think. Life is too short for that. I live my best life when I lean into ME and honor ME!
This evening, we all leaned in a little more. I did a Symphony of the Cells Essential Oil Treatment on my husband and kids and my husband applied the oils on me. With this months longer meditation playing in the background for all of us. The theme for March and April has been Manifestation. Which can apply to all areas of our life. Many people, and I was one, think of “manifestation” as money or financial gains. In these past 5 years, the more Ive leaned in, with personal coaching, the doTERRA Team Elite Retreat, EFT, Journaling, Reading again, Listening to podcasts, Energy work with Reiki – I am certified in Reiki 1 and 2! The power of the mind is astounding. Honestly if you are needing a meditation please reach out, I would be happy to connect you with my meditation coach, she is offering a trial period for the meditations! If you choose to reach out to her, please let her know Pam sent you!

I pulled another card at lunch… after shuffling and then doing a spread on my lunch this is the card I picked…
This may look familiar if you have been around the past couple weeks on my blog or on my Instagram Profile! Ive pulled it quite a few times… I think the universe is not being so subtle 😉
Lean in to what you know and if what you know, does not feel familiar or comfortable anymore, lean in to the whispers of your soul for new direction ❤
