Five Secrets to Having More Energy and Vitality, Part III

In our culture, expressing anger is a touchy subject. Performing polarity yoga combined with Young Living essential oils may help you unleash anger and help you reconnect to your passion. Remember: According to energy medicine principles, if your energy is not moving, it gets stuck and stagnant—which leads to imbalances and possible illness. The secret to having more energy is to keep the energy you do have moving!

One of my favorite exercises to access the fire chakra is the Ha! Woodchopper.
The essential oils that I recommend for the fire chakra are peppermint, ginger, lemon, Transformation™, Purification®, Live with Passion™, and En-R-Gee™.

Step 1:
Take a moment to source any unresolved feelings of anger, resentment, or bitterness that you may have toward yourself or others; revisit something in your life that you do have passion for that needs rekindling.

Step 2:
Place a few drops of you favorite essential oil from the list above on your left palm and gently rub your right hand clockwise over your left palm three times and inhale the essential oil. Take in a few deep, cleansing breaths to help you focus your intention. You may also place a few drops of that essential oil directly on your solar plexus, which is located just below the base of your sternum, in the center of your diaphragm. Remember to dilute your oils with V-6™ Vegetable Oil Complex if you have sensitive skin.

The “Quick Weight Loss Diet” Trend Disadvantage

If you wear a size 14 and you blow a bundle on designer size 8 dresses as motivation, you will probably end up feeling guilty, frustrated, and angry if you are not slinking around in it a month later.

In reality, you will do much better setting smaller, achievable targets for yourself. If you must try the new-clothes strategy, go down a size at a time, and do not buy anything you have to take out a second mortgage to pay for.

Because, if you continue to remorse on losing weight fast, you will end up incorporating fad diets or those that offer quick weight loss.

For most people who are not aware of this fact, there are no such things as quick weight loss diets and there is no nippy weight loss for people who want to be slimmer than what their body can provide.

Pointers on Losing Weight Safely (Part II)

Engaging in Aerobics
Aerobics are not only good for the heart by increasing cardio-vascular endurance. Aerobics also help in increasing lean muscle mass while simultaneously decreasing excess body fat. Aside from these, aerobics make the metebolic process more efficient and its rate high, even after a long while. Imagine burning fat efficiently while driving along the freeway or even while watching television.

Extra “Push”

Some people believe that smoking and caffeine can actually help in losing weight. This can perhaps be true; however, they do the body more harm than good because of their side-effects. For that extra “push”, one can try out taking food supplements. Afterall, 95% of these products out in the market actually does good.

Five Secrets to Having More Energy and Vitality, part II

Energy Secret No. 2
As we continue from the Energy Secret blog last month, we step down from the ether element and throat chakra and come to the heart chakra, located at the center of the chest. The heart chakra, which is ruled by the air element, is the center for compassion, joy, and forgiveness. The air element thrives with regular movement, laughter, and fun.

This chakra rules our ability to love, accept, and forgive. Incorporating any of the below mentioned essential oils, along with the energy exercise, will transform intolerant, critical, or judgmental tendencies into inspiration, forgiveness, and motivation. It also helps open the heart more fully.
Essential oil recommendations for balancing the heart chakra include jasmine, lavender, rose, Forgiveness™ and Joy™.

Follow these steps while sitting, standing, or walking:
  • Apply your desired essential oil directly to your heart area. Remember: If you have sensitive skin, use a few drops of Young Living’s V-6™ Vegetable Oil Complex to dilute.
  • Deeply inhale the essential oil and state your intention for doing this exercise.

Pointers on Losing Weight Safely (Part I)

People who want to lose weight commonly, and first of all, think about reducing the amount of food they eat. This may be quite a solution but not exactly the best there is. In fact, depending on the amount you reduce in your food intake, it may even be dangerous to one’s health. So how does one lose weight effectively and safely? Here are some points one should consider when trying to lose weight:

Beware of the Crash Diets

Most people think that trimming down the calories can alone shed off their unwanted excess. Probably this is because of the fad there is in advertising about low-calorie food products and beverages. What people don’t know is that this could be dangerous because when they decrease their calorie intake way to below the required levels, the body begins to digest the fats. Sounds good but it doesn’t actually. Burning fat requires a lot of energy. Since there is not much energy in the body to facilitate metabolism of fat, it will run at a very slow pace resulting to fatigue, illness and weak immune system.

The Power of Ecuador: Ocotea and Dorado Azul, part 1

Don’t tell their famous plant relatives, but Ecuador oils ocotea and dorado azul have it where it counts. In fact, broader use of these oils is revealing remarkable and intriguing therapeutic distinction.

Both ocotea (Ocotea quixos) and dorado azul (Hyptis suaveolens) belong to plant families with storied functional and therapeutic reputations. Ocotea comes from the Lauraceae family (cinnamon, bay laurel, etc.); dorado azul comes from the Lamiaceae family (mint, sage, spice oils). These oils from the Amazon basin share many phytochemical properties and functions that have made their relatives some of the most widely used and valued oils throughout the world. However, very little was known about how the specific qualities of these Ecuador species might compare to their famous cousins until Young Living’s founder, Gary Young, took an interest.

One of the products that received buzz from attendees was reformulated AlkaLime™. As I mentioned in a past blog, I had the opportunity to prepare and distribute product samples at the Product Expo. Everyone raved about AlkaLime’s flavor, but many people had questions concerning its improved benefits. Based on these questions I have compiled a list of frequently asked questions and their answers.

Question: Why reformulate AlkaLime?

Answer: We wanted to more precisely balance the sodium, magnesium, potassium, and calcium mineral levels. We were also able to improve the product taste and smell, increase solubility, and enhance the fizz/effervescence activity.
