I am so thankful for this journey. I’ve been doing this now for almost 2 years and what I’ve learned is that people get into oils for many different reasons:
🤧 To avoid days off from work and school 🤒
☠️ To get toxins out of the home 🕯🧼
😌 To help provide support for a specific thing they or a loved one is dealing with.
It is a beautiful thing to watch people go from addressing a couple of things in daily life to finding a deeper level of overall wellness in body and mind: myself included!
I got into oils for sleep. I had a 3 year old and we were struggling. What I quickly found was that I was able to climb out from the dark place I was in and find so much hope and light and freedom from so many things I had been carrying by tuning into my emotional wellness and the capabilities that essential oils have to offer.
The body and mind and soul are inextricably connected and I’ve learned so many things about the link between emotions and wellness.
I wouldn’t be where I am today without YL oils, Jesus, the tenacity in making the changes I needed to make to allow myself to let go of what wasn’t serving me, and this community and all of the resources that come along with it.
As a result of my life-changing experiences I have a passion is about emotional wellness, emotional release the body/mind/soul connection, and the healing power of Christ. I believe we cannot fully be well without balancing all of those things.
I have amassed a ton of knowledge on the subject and I am just leaning into where it will lead me next.
I recorded this video on Facebook to share my heart and gratitude for how far I've come, and rather than typing it all out, I just wanted to share with you here too.
I am so passionate about teaching and sharing and have been a little less confident about bringing up the transactional side of essential oils. And I want to apologize -- all of my indirectness has actually just been a disservice to the people I love.
The Premium Starter Kit is on sale. You've seen the things. I am yelling it from the rooftops because I am not going to play small anymore. I am not going to be shy about this. Every household needs a starter kit. Not just a couple oils. Not the janky ones off Amazon or even that D one. A Young Living Premium Starter Kit. 12 oils, a diffuser, all the things. These oils are different than the junk you've tried. This community is different. There is something special here. I am serious.
You need a YL starter kit because you need to make a shift. A commitment. This is important. The only changes that stick are the ones where we’ve gone “all in.”
You’ll be tempted to say it’s too much. Too overwhelming. Too expensive. Too complicated.
The question is- are you ready to let go of the things keeping you stuck, unwell, unhappy? Or Are you too attached to them to do the work to let go of them? This is a legit question. Are you ready to prioritize yourself and your health over something else that is taking your resources? Are the things you're doing right now working for you?
When you’re ready to put in the work to change, you will change. The starter kit and this community will hold you accountable. You won’t be alone, we are cheering you on.
People ask me how membership works, “why can’t I just get a couple oils?” Listen. When left unaided, brains want to take the easy route and not do the work to change. But that does not produce results. It’s not the product’s fault, it’s your fault. We don’t get healthy by just having one meal of broccoli or going on the treadmill once. Everything that is transformative takes some commitment. This starter kit was designed mindfully to give you opportunities to take on the habits needed for transformation.
“But I’m not looking for transformation, I just want X to feel better.....”
Friend. Have you looked honestly at why X is not working in the first place? Everything in life is connected to something deeper and there is no magic potion to pour on and avoid the process of excavating that deeper source. It will be so good to face it and see yourself change as you find relief. That’s how this works.
So when you’re ready to invest in yourself and have it returned to you, and be supported by friends and amazing science and gifts from God, I’m here to cheer you on. ❤️
Back in Salt Lake City!
In High School I was really involved in DECA — a competitive marketing club. I qualified back to back years for International competitions and one year it was in Salt Lake City. Six of us traveled there together to compete and climb mountains and see the freshly vacated Olympic grounds, the Temple, a baseball game and make memories I’ll never forget.
DECA left such an impression on me, it is some of my fondest memories of that stage of life and something that I excelled in—I earned countless medals, a Letter, I was awarded a scholarship, and was the president of my chapter. I learned lessons about confidence, teamwork, leadership, and grit. I spent hours and hours writing, researching, rehearsing, and presenting projects and role plays. I learned what Flow felt like—I could get lost doing that work late into the evening and I couldn’t get enough. It set the stage for my professional life and in the former years of my career I maintained the spirit by leading and organizing clubs, volunteering as a judge and filling my cup with professional development by being on the board of IIBA.
When I look back on those times it brings clarity that I am truly — as Jen Hatmaker puts it — in my lane, doing the thing meant for me.
As life has a tendency to do, the path takes a few turns every once in a while... Becoming a mom was the best thing but honestly I had missed connection to that spirit of business and entrepreneurship and leadership and although I needed the time away from the corporate world, I always had hope tucked away in my heart that entrepreneurial life would find me somehow. I didn’t know how.
So, here I am full circle, back in Salt Lake attending another International event, reflecting on those formative years (man I am old enough to use that phrase now!) and so thankful for them, and for the broken road that led me back to here to reignite those dormant parts of me that felt so native for me years ago.
Let’s get this party started! This is going to be so good. On my way to the Lavender Farm & Distillery In Mona, UT!!
(pictures to come! I am having technical difficulties!)
A few posts ago I was referring to my word in 2018. It was actually a couple of words - "Calm Confidence"
I was working on my vision board for myself, my family, and my business and while I was making my lists, it hit me what my word should be this year.
Right. I had to laugh. You know you're on the right path when it doesn't seem like you would have chose it if you were really calling the shots. haha. I mean what a dork, I coudn't just settle for "freedom" or "unburdened" or "liberated" or something less nerdy? I even negotiated with myself that it should be "light" instead. And that is definitely the runner up. Or it might be the one that I actually tell people lol so that I don't feel like such a weiner for my dramatic word choice.
Our team is making a necklace with our word. I mean I have to put that on jewelry?
But, the spirit was clear. That is the one.
It's so right. I get in my own way so often. I let other things get in my way. I walk heavy.
So, this year, I am going to travel light. I am going to ditch excuses. I am going to just do the dang thing. I am allowed to enjoy the process. I am allowed to let life flow to me. I am allowed to move forward!
i am light,
i am free
i advance with ease
What's your word for 2019?
Last January I had a bug in my bonnet that I was going to make some changes. I was going to get active, I was going to get control of my anxiety, and I was going to surrender to God and start to tune in to where he was really leading me.
I started Monique McLean's 21 Days of Prayer on January 2 last year. It is so good. Although i have to admit I have to watch it on 1.5x speed because she is a bit wordy and I need to keep things moving. I also have to admit it took me more than 21 days. But it was very very transformative for me. I also did the Feelings Protocol at the same time for the month of January and I have to say that they were perfect compliments to each other.
I am starting it again this January and I want to invite you to join me. We don't have to start on exactly the same day or compare notes if you don't want to (but if you do, I'd be delighted to, that's my passion!) I think it is such a wonderful way to start the new year.
Since last year she's jazzed up the setup and it's really nice, over at youinfuse.com. I get nothing for sending you over there but I highly recommend it for your own growth! There's also a workbook that I purchased to go with it this year, but it is not a requirement to do the study. Go, check it out. I'll wait here.
Drop me a message if you're planning to do it! I'd love to cheer you on in my prayers.
Have a blessed Christmas and I am sending you all the best for your best year yet in 2019.
I'm Lisa Yau, thanks for stopping by!
