Hey Sweet Buttercup...
Forgiveness. It is a weighty word. You most likely have your own stories involving the need to forgive or to be forgiven. Many emotions and feelings come to the surface for me when I hear this word and what it means to me. I have had something very personal that I have needed to forgive myself for, pain that I cause loved ones in my life. It has been an emotional weight and a physical one too. Our bodies have a way of speaking our pain for us. Several months ago I was introduced to this particular oil, Forgive. I did not like it. The first time I smelt it, it repulsed me. I quickly put the lid back on the bottle and put the oil away. Even as I type this story to share with you I fear judgement. But we all know that fear is a restrictor. I have learned in my life to walk through the discomfort and be vulnerable anyway. I had a break through a little over a month ago. A very personal one. One in which I found the freedom that comes from forgiveness. I forgave myself for something I never thought I could. I felt light and free and at peace. It was quite the experience. I am so thankful for it. I have had moments when I have to remind myself that I forgave myself and in the moment of doubt, I forgive myself again. A few weeks after my profound experience I reopened the bottle of Forgive, I tried again, and you know what? I inhaled this precious oil and I loved it. I was not expecting this. I sat back and stared at my little bottle of oil and gave thanks. It may be just a little miracle in my life, but it was a beautiful reminder that I was able to let go. I am able to forgive myself and the beautiful lightness of being that comes from truly forgiving yourself or someone else is a miracle. Set yourself free. Do the work and forgive. Freedom will follow. I promise.
Let me know if you have any Qs about essential oils. I am converted. I would love to have you join me on this journey. I wonder what miracles would come to you.
