Can you imagine the human journey without some kind of stress?
In addition to the mere fact of being born, there are plenty of internal and external stimuli to compel us into our own work around those things which we receive as “stress.”
Fear of success, fear of failure, fear of loss, losing control, being controlled… not good enough, not enough of money.. love or heating oil…
What’s more frustrating, our average level of stress literally becomes imprinted as our "familiar frequency" meaning if someone magically took it away, we would immediately and instinctively create the same level because in some way, we would feel naked without it. For true change to occur, a new familiar frequency, such as peace, must be imprinted as "normal" and this is a process that warrants patience, humor and humility… and some sensible tools along the way.
Essential oils are excellent amplifiers and potent messengers, absorbed easily into the emotional centers of the brain where stress programming resides and replays. Following is a simple practice utilizing a therapeutic grade blend called Clarity, available only from Young Living Essential Oils (ordering information below). Even the most skeptical individuals have reported great success with this practice, seeing deeply rooted, life long emotional patterns ease out in a short period of time.
And now the process:
First, tune in on the feeling of STRESS, or a stressful event, bring it strongly to mind.
(This brings it to the frontal lobe of the brain.)
Envision the opposite of STRESS, which is HARMONY.
Apply a drop of CLARITY (blend) to the BRAIN INTEGRATION point (1” above top of ear)
as well as the forehead, top of head and base of skull.
Affirm repeatedly “I UNDERSTAND.” The spoken word amplifies the effect by 80 %... and the body mind centers literally hear it, so even better if you do this aloud. If at first the words may sound hollow… keep doing it… something will suddenly shift. Repeat this practice numerous times a day … I’m betting in your favor that Stress will shift. Revisit your list. How does it feel now?
If you are into EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique, www.emofree.com ), feel free to tap on the karate point (side of hand) while envisioning and affirming the above. Breathwork… Reiki… Polarity… Acupuncture… all wonder amplifiers as desired.
This is the time of your healing and discovery…

ADDITIONAL STRESS TOOLS:
Make a list of your 10 top stressors.
What do they have in common? At the core is usually one key emotion operating under everything else, however, if one issue seems to be causing the most discomfort (ie, getting your attention/causing pain), go with it. (See book reference below to address other emotions.)
When we diffuse the top emotion,
underlying emotions become more accessible to work with or release, thus the healing journey begins. And though it may appear we cannot do much about those external conditions, in fact, when we heal the war inside, we contribute to the greater healing of the war outside. The peace that we exude ripples outward and affects others, more than we can ever know. Hold that thought too…
For emotional stress in general,
the following easy practice might be useful. Drawn directly from Carolyn Mein, DC’s excellent book, “Releasing Emotional Patterns with Essential Oils,” it incorporates bringing the intended emotion to the forefront of the brain where it can be accessed, plugging in your ability to envision and affirm, and then enhancing the process with the application of a potent essential oil blend which is absorbed directly into the emotional center of the brain and throughout the body cells and DNA.
