Are you Upper-Limiting Yourself?

Have you ever heard the term “Upper Limiting”? In his book, The Big Leap, Gay Hendricks talks about how we self-sabotage by “upper-limiting” ourselves. He defines it like this:

“Each of us has an inner thermostat setting that determines how much love, success, and creativity we allow ourselves to enjoy. When we exceed our inner thermostat setting, we will often do something to sabotage ourselves, causing us to drop back into the old, familiar zone where we feel secure.”

Some of the ways we do this are worrying unnecessarily, playing the criticism and blame game, deflecting positivity and compliments, squabbling, and getting sick or injured. The premise is basically that we stop things from getting really great in our lives because, unconsciously, we don’t believe we deserve it. No one does it on purpose, so don’t beat yourself up. In my case with the newsletter, it was perfectionism (which might be a combination of criticism and worry).Getting It Done

Now I’ve learned that a balance needs to be struck between “getting it done” and “getting it right”, and in this case, I’ve been leaning all into the “getting it right” category, and therefore NOT getting it done at all.

Does this resonate with you? I can see how I’ve done this in so many ways throughout my life, but now that I recognize it so clearly, I’m changing how I do things. It won’t happen overnight, but it will happen. Starting with this post (which will also serve as a newsletter to those on my Email List)!

Owning up to behaviors/habits that don’t serve us is the first step in changing them. Now I’m wise to how seeking to get it right sabotages me from getting it done, so when I catch myself procrastinating on something because I want it to be “just so”, I will recalibrate and shift my trajectory towards Getting It Done.

Fall Into Ease: Free Talk in Lander, WY

October 21. 2017Fall Into Ease

Why do we often seem to make life harder than it needs to be?
We push ourselves too hard to produce. We try to fit too much into each day, live up to the expectations that we “think” others have for us, and then there’s FOMO (Fear Of Missing Out).

After all of THAT, there’s absolutely NO TIME left for YOU. Sound familiar? We all do it. That’s why I’m giving this talk. I want to share with you SIMPLE, EASY ways that the wisdom of Ayurveda can help bring more Ease & Energy into your life!

In this Free Talk, I’ll be giving tips on How to Nourish Yourself for More Energy & Mind/Body Ease. If you suffer from Auto-Immune issues, Chronic Fatigue, or if Stress and Overwhelm are part of your daily life, THIS IS FOR YOU!

In addition to Ayurvedic wisdom, there will be healthy seasonal snacks and beverages, awesome freebies, and a giveaway to look forward to! I hope to see you there!

TOO MUCH!

“The two 
main causes 
of illness are 
Too Much Food and 
Too Many Thoughts.”More isn’t better.

You probably know that intuitively, even though our culture doesn’t currently support this truth (or your intuition for that matter). What can you do when all of the messaging around you is the OPPOSITE of what is Healthy and Whole? I have TWO answers. Both require a little effort on your part, but are easy peasy! Ready?
……………………………………………….
1) Make a commitment to yourself to find moments throughout your day to sit in silence. Sit well. Close your eyes. Tune into your breath. Listen for what arises within you. First you might sift through lots of thoughts, but let them pass through your mind without grabbing hold of them or examining them. Like the way clouds pass in the sky. Soft. Quiet. Spacious. Slowly allow more space between thoughts and more space within your mind and body. Deepen your breath. Settle into your Being. Let your jaw relax. Face soften…….
FEEL GOOD? (More of this will begin to help you align to your intuition and deeper truth.)
2) Take my Habit course to hone your awareness of what YOU need to live a life of THRIVE! (Read more about that HERE.)

Holiday Gifts that GIVE BACK!

Are you like me?  When I’m thinking of gift-giving for the holidays, I look for something of real quality that will last. My gift-giving requirements are pretty steep.  Specifically, these are some of the things I look for —

  1. Something that LASTS.  A one-time amusement doesn’t meet my standards. Because it will spend much more time in a landfill then in my friend’s life.
  2. Something of VALUE.  I prefer my gifts to have some true purpose, or meaning — again, not just a cheap thrill.
  3. Something that has a positive effect on the HUMANITY and/or the PLANET.  Cheap toys from China don’t make it under my tree. I don’t want to support sweat shops, child labor, or any other practices that are doing way more harm to people and the environment than good. Extra points for buying from small businesses with conscious and sustainable practices!!
  4. Something that ENHANCES the life of the recipient.  If a gift I give can somehow bring more ease, enjoyment, or educational value to the life of my friend, or family member, then I feel good knowing that I really made a difference.
  5. Something HANDMADE is always extra awesome in my book, whether I make it, or I purchase it from someone else.  When you buy from small, local businesses, the money goes directly back into the community where you live, so you’re doing a service to your town!

One thing I feel good about giving is dōTERRA essential oils, and homemade products using these oils.  Last year I made homemade candles using dōTERRA essential oils, and they were a big hit! I think I hit every single one of my gift requirements with that one. My family got to enjoy the therapeutic benefits of essential oils every time they burned their candles and thought of me!

This year I wanted to share the  dōTERRA Holiday Gift Guide 2016 with you! One of the things that caught my eye in their holiday collection this year is the Peace Basket.

Gift of Peace
The story of the Rwandan peace basket is one of triumph over tragedy. One hundred days in 1994 became known as the Rwandan genocide. Officially known as the genocide against the Tutsi, an estimated 70 percent of the Tutsi population in
Rwanda was killed during a few short months. While the stories of loss and tragedy are innumerable, the real story is told through the people, the landscape, the
children, and mostly, the future. Communities of people joining together in
traditional basket weaving cultivated healing and harmony. Gifting the baskets
to others continued the united pledge to establish peace. Love and nurturing pulsed through the streets of Rwanda.  As women gathered together building pieces of art, they left behind healing, hope, strength, and honor.

In the same beautiful countryside that once rang the sound of destruction, the sound of laughter and love echoes off the beautiful, joy-filled faces of the Rwandan people choosing each day to build peace.

Through the Rwandan Peace Basket project, over 2,000 women were provided work and paid a fair wage for each basket made exclusively for dōTERRA. To further community impact, an adult literacy program was established to provide an
opportunity for those who were unable to attend school. Through this program, dreams become reality as men and women are finally able to write their names, read employment applications, open and use bank accounts, and teach generations to
come how to do the same.

This set includes a uniquely colored, randomly selected ornament basket. Each basket is handmade with sisal fibers from agave plants and features a tag signed by the specific artisan who made it. A 5mL bottle of dōTERRA Peace® Blend is included.
Thank you for choosing the Gift of Peace this holiday season. We hope you may feel your continuous role in supporting the 2,000 artisans as you share the Gift of Peace with those you love.
