Carol Shares: Yins and Yangs

 As I watch myself I notice

That I am this “package” of cycles and choices, doings and don’ts

One day I am all out in this direction and then another day is like waking up to a new script

Sometimes I “pop myself off” with just trying to do too much at one time

I have an enthusiastic and curious nature

I want to do so many things: work, love, adventure.

I am now learning to recognize and make peace with my many cycles

So I now call it “yin and yang” cycles, not good or bad … there is time for action as there is time for rest

Re-evaluate/reflective/vacation/ nurturing time vs dramatic, creative, business focus, energy

Health and joy is finding the balance.

Yin Yang definition: “In Chinese philosophy, yin and yang describe how seemingly opposite or contrary forces may actually be complementary, interconnected, and interdependent in the natural world, and how they may give rise to each other as they interrelate to one another.”

I had a friend describe Life as a “braid of hair”

Every section of the braid as a direction and choice, all very different from one other

Yet when braided together they create a very strong rope

Our personal “Life Braid” is so very different and unique to each one of us

The combination of all our goals, hopes, interests etc that make us who we are.

So I encourage you in the new year of 2018

To choose your goals wisely

To go forward with integrity, conviction and honest effort

To know that we will never be able to fulfill ALL our dreams,

Learning to balance our work with healthy doses of love and rest

To notice and appreciate our many accomplishments along the way

Sometimes it may be that we need to say “No” and back away

Sometimes it may be that we need to push ourselves out of our comfort zone

Life is a heartbeat: it opens and it closes

Climbing our bank of snow

Honoring the “Yins and Yangs of our Life

APPRECIATION: to stop and enjoy each moment for all it is worth!

Carol XOXO

Stone of the Month: Fushite

Fushite comes in various shades of green, a green mica and chromium with sparkles of green and gold flecks that resemble what we would call fairy dust. It gives off a sparkling radiance along with pure and blissful magic. This is a great crystal to place in a home to bring in happiness, laughter and joy along with the supportive skills for raising a family. It attracts natural, nature and fairy like energy and even is said to aid herbalists to gain information on natural remedies. Let it’s vibrant energy illuminate your world and give you a fresh perspective on life, it helps us to appreciate all the good things happening rather than focussing on what is not working. It’s a great stone to have when we are busy with a busy schedule: it helps us to stay organized, updated and aware of what is going on without feeling overwhelmed. It reminds us that every moment of our life is an opportunity to choose happiness. It is a great stone for natural healers and caregivers. A “Healers Stone” to guide to the most effective remedy, and to the healer within. It helps us to support but not to become too involved or do too much of the work which can take away from the learning experience of the other. It can help us balance interactions with others: “tough love”, helping people to help themselves, avoid “over mothering”, healthy boundaries, eliminating worry, bringing in confidence that others WILL succeed, being excited for their success as they find their way. This is a great stone for sensitive children, ADHD symptoms, allergies, balances sugars, mood swings, repetitive strain injuries and helps stabilizes spinal column alignment. Known as the Healer’s Stone.

Young Living Essential Oil of the month: Pine

Majestic Scotch pine trees tower above the forest, reaching heights of 65 to 115 feet. Pine has a refreshing, invigorating aroma. It has a revitalizing effect on the entire body and helps fight fatigue, purify thoughts and promote positive attitudes. Medicinally it fights any kind of respiratory infection including: asthma, bronchitis, colds, the flu, laryngitis, sore throats, and promotes healthy breathing. It blends well with Eucalyptus and is also found in Young Living’s RC blend for Respiratory Congestion. It can arm or chill a fever, depending on what the body needs. It soothes muscle pains and stiffness in joints, treats injuries, provides relief for arthritis, backaches, carpel tunnel syndrome, gout, rheumatism, and sciatica. It stimulates circulation, raises blood pressure, and activates the adrenals. It acts as a kidney and liver cleanser and can help with cystitis and prostate problems. It soothes itchy and inflammation disorders of the skin and helps heal cuts and sores. It is often added to baths and saunas. Pine can also increase metabolism, boost energy, and improves eye health. Pine tree energy is believed to be the bridge between mind and body, physical and spirit, earth and heaven. If you decide to not be in a hurry you can grow slowly with the wisdom of this elder in the tree realm that will help you understand a higher state of being. Revitalizing, empowering, strength and grounding. Add some pine to your winter days!
