I AM A GIRL WITH A OLD FASHIONED HEART
PASSIONATE, YES I’M A LOVER.. WITH A DASH OF VINTAGE FLAIR
I SPREAD MY WINGS AND CHALLENGE MYSELF TO LIVE THE LIFE THAT MAKES ME HAPPY
I HAVE A PASSION TO SHARE MY LIGHT WITH YOU..
I am a mum of three amazing children and have lived and breathed the past 14 years as a hairdresser with a passion for flare and making people feel amazing as soon as they sit in the chair .. RIGHT UP to when they walk out uplift and feeling like a million dollars. Makes me feel so happy I can do that for people and have made a career out of it in the process.
I will always have a love for hair and helping people .. but moving forward and working with my spiritual coach and intuitive healer …Free Spirit Woman! I have found another aspect of me that i am ready to step forward into. I WANT TO SHARE WITH YOU my words of expression, life moments & inspiration through blogging my story.
I too have grown up beyond my years, some would say alot faster than others. But reality is, I had too!
I have felt pain and loss.
I have been that muddy brown lotus on the bottom of the river bed.
I have been the teenager that did go from day to day with the unknown of what will be at the end of the day.
I was that young adult that needed direction in her future self.
I was that person that longed to find that someone that would be the very source that she needed to be the very person she was meant to be.
SO HERE WE ARE ….
MY LITTLE SPACE OF EXPRESSION, LOVE, GUIDANCE & SELF WORTH – INSPIRING LOVE
Your probably thinking what has my story got to do with essential oils ?
The answer is quite alot! I have been a carpet blanker. The person who would through things under the carpet because she didn’t want to deal with emotions, hurt, or even areas life she could not understand or even start to change.
Essential Oils were a total godsend! They have allowed me to deal with my emotions, cut through all the bullshit that lied inside of me. Move the hurt, pain and mixed emotions that lay under the carpet & started working ON ME!! I realised how important it actually was. That my feelings and emotions were actually stopping me from growing. I lived in past hurt, resentment and grief of what I had lost but also what i didn’t have.
I was stuck in a rut.
It was like the universe was trying to tell me something or my dear mother, expressing to me that everything was going to be ok. I had been strong for so long that it was all I really knew how to do day in and day out.
Teenage years were hard. I struggled, fought and processed what i could back then for me to move from day to day! My struggle came from the unknown of my mothers safety and where or not she was tucked up in bed or out on the street some where. I am not proud of being a daughter who’s parent struggled through daily life due to a addiction. But i am not a ashamed of it either. I have known what it is like to grown without motherly guidance and support. I have been in the unknown of no man’s land and struggled to fit in many different spaces & surroundings. Why? because of judgement. Addiction isn’t something you wake up in the morning and want! Its is an occurance that happens when they are trying not to come to terms with life blows… losses… abuse… low self confidence… depression. At the end of the day we will never understand it unless you walk the same path! I’m a firm believer of this and I have a very wide understanding when I too become a mum. My mum tried …. god i know she did! But the demon was to strong!
I lost mum in October of 1999… From here everything changed.
My understanding, my need, my assurance, my youth, my life !!
I had to grow up and become what I thought i needed to be and everyday still work on what it is back in the earlier years that I learned to bury and place under my so called carpet… for my survival mode. With starting the use of essential oils i have found who it is that I love to be, I work on my carpet demons when they arise and I use my essential oils to guide me, ground me, encourage me, nourish me & uplift me up.
So I now i work on living in harmony with past hurt, living in my present moments right now and have future love and guidance for my intentions & myself.
FUN FACT – I’m a Taurus … Stubborn as all hell, love the outdoors especially potting away in the garden beds and beautifying my home, my sanctuary. I am very grounded and live with balance and sense of order. Yep totally OCD lol
I have always loved essential oils going way back to my teenage years. Yes going way back in the day when the body shop use to sell the little bottles of essential oils on a tiered stand in the middle of the store.. I would frequently go into the store, lift up the blown glass tester and use the patchouli oil at every moment i could. My love for patchouli has never changed.
So from the glass testers during my teenage years to becoming mum and still loving the earthy, grounding nature the oils bring. I decided to look into… “what i love to call it” – gypsy living (lol) a little further and found the amazing company that is doterra.
It became exactly what I was after, it made me happy, gave me vision and direction to fight the inner demons of; not good enough, can I really do it?….. and even the odd quote of “Elissa just stick to what you know”…
To setting my intentions, and follow my heart to a whole new dimension that burned ever so brightly.
I FOLLOWED MY HEART
PAVING THE PATH TO A UNKNOWN FIELD
LET ME GIVE YOU A LITTLE RUN DOWN … HOW I HAVE STARTED MY JOURNEY WITH DOTERRA
Being a mum you do everything and anything possible for your children but with this also stops you from feeling deep and creating what you love and enjoy. Yes it’s time, time is a killer in some ways as there isn’t enough hours to make things happen plus do all of your normal duties …. I have learnt this isn’t the case !!
I love and enjoy the knowledge of spiritual practises and natural ways to help me with my daily needs to support my health and emotional well being.
I now invest in me and with this makes me a happy and fuller person working on the inside, reflects on our outside xx
YOUR PAST HURTS, WRONGS, & LOSSES ARE NOT A HINDRANCE THEY BUILD YOU INTO A MORE KNOWABLE AND UNDERSTANDING WHOLE
In the prior years … I would constantly have head aches, be constantly presented with my blanket demons and be overwhelmed by my daily struggles from being a Hairdresser to being a full time mum. My home and life felt like it was a constant world wind and not actually getting anywhere. dōTERRA was introduced to me by a soul sister of mine … To actually help me and provide me, day to day guidance. Just what i need to move forward and live in my truth.
They honestly were like a gift of understanding. My moods changed, my stress levels went down, I started working on me … I found who I was all a long!
ESSENTIAL OILS HAVE GUIDED ME THROUGH MY PERILS OF LIFE
‘SO WHAT DOES INSPIRING LOVE GIVE TO YOU’
I am putting my two feet forward and opening my knowledge and space for you too also share your light, be the person that you too are wanting to be, stepping out and finding that special something that screams and says ” Where the hell have you been?”
ESSENTIAL OIL LIVING IS A GAME CHANGER …… ONE THAT I WILL BE FOREVER GRATEFUL TO HAVE COME ACROSS
