Courage seems to be a common theme lately in many lives and the fear of moving forward can hold many of us back. This is a year of transition and the shedding of old energies, thoughts, or belief systems that no longer serve ones spirit. A new energy is beginning to emerge and new possibilities are calling to our individual spirit. However sometimes with transition we still find that we may have fear to overcome, doubt, maybe even grief of letting something go. Do you experience such feelings? Do you ever wish that just like the lion in the Wizard of OZ that you could find the courage by visiting the “GREAT WIZARD?”
Well, you can!! Here is a little secret, the act of courage is always within you and available to you. Sometimes we just have to dig a little deeper to find it. But it is there and it’s waiting for you, to believe in… YOU! Are you ready?
If so we can make it easier. Essential oils are a wonderful way to work with the emotions in ones body and any long held belief systems from our sub conscious.
For todays topic of COURAGE I would recommend the use of Cedarwood essential oil.
Cedarwood has a lot of wonderful attributes, one of my favorite things to use cedarwood for is courage. Cedarwood has a lovely sweet wood tone to it. When used as an essential oil it helps to ground us and connect us to earthly forces. It also restores a sense of spiritual certainty and strengthens the connection with the divine. Cedarwood encourages strength, focus, balance persistence, and confidence. Cedarwood helps us remove hidden fears. All common themes to finding our courage. Wouldn’t you say?
Try mixing cedarwood with other essential oils. For a well balanced blend try one of the following in combination with the cedarwood. Roman chamomile, clary sage, cypress, geranium, lavender, rosemary, orange, or frankincense.
Be sure to always mix your essential oils with a carrier oil such as grapeseed oil, olive oil, jojoba, or sunflower oil. Always use essential oils for external use only. Not recommended if you are pregnant and can cause skin irritation on some individuals.
Are you ready to tap into your inner lion? Your space of courage? Cedarwood helps us to remove our hidden fears. So what have you been holding yourself back from? Try working with cedarwood and see what happens. Enjoy the process, enjoy LIFE!!
