I recently traveled to Croatia to see Young Living’s Helichrysum Farm with my husband Terry. Helichrysum is a special and very expensive oil from such a little herb that grows wild among the rocks. I wanted to discover the story behind this bottle of oil we enjoy so much from the Young Living Essential Oils range. Quite the adventure unfolded in this beautiful country that lies along the Dalmatian Coastline, called such due to the Islands dotted all along the coastline. I am ever grateful for how being a YL distributer has opened up my life to discover far flung places holding nature’s hidden secrets.
Have you ever faced the fear of something and done it anyway? During awakening to our true identity we may face our deepest fear. The fear of death. Ultimately FEAR is linked to our separate ego’s need to be successful. The ego’s fear of failure or death drives much of our reactive behaviour. Both Terry Oldfield and I write about just how we overcame buried false beliefs in these blogs: Terry shares overcoming his fear to speak and be heard and myself overcoming the fear to Sing.
People often tell me I have a divine voice when husband Terry Oldfield and I share our music. Well it has not always been that way. I loved to sing as a child, bold and fearless, singing my heart out, without a care in the world. My sisters and I would play ‘Young Talent Time” with my parents as the audience. Corny I know…but we’d laugh and clap and it was joyous. But my open innocent confidence was crushed at 10 years old when I was rejected for the school choir, and told by the unfeeling teacher that I didn’t have a voice. I can’t sing was the message I received from her, loud and clear and this locked into my body. This negative untrue belief sadly silenced my singing voice for years.
There is no doubt about it, relationships shape our lives. Firstly, with our parents or care givers, our siblings, friends, peers and the environment itself. The experience of these foundational relationships continues to influence our adult choices within relationships. On the mundane level relationships have many different areas of engagement from energetic, mental and spiritual right through to physical touch.
