Friends, I write this today in all my humanity. The feelings popping up around goals, achievements, holiday expectations and plans, the wild busy-ness of our western lives. The elation we feel when we have learned an important lesson, achieved a goal, or had a big breakthrough can sometimes be met with a period of low feelings afterward.
Today is a great example…after the huge effort a holiday can be, the letdown can make us feel unsure and not know where to turn.
Often, we feel best when we are working on a project or vigorously pursuing a goal. AND there is nothing at all wrong with spending a day, a week, or even a month simply existing and not having a plan. Just be. It won't be long before we will embark upon the next voyage of growth and discovery. This time can feel like our next step is unclear, and cause us to feel disconnected, even as a mild depression. In simply being, and going through the motions of everyday life, we reconnect with our priorities in a very organic, unforced way.
This mindful, transitional pause can take many forms. For some, it can be a period of reflection that helps us understand how our life has unfolded. Just because we are not headed swiftly to a final destination doesn't mean we should assume that we have lost our drive. The stage between journeys can become a wonderful period of relaxation that prepares us for the path that will soon be revealed!
Finding tools to help us breathe, sit back, and feel contentment during our resting periods can be important in flipping the script and allowing nurturing within. Some simple essential oil recipes that can help with finding contentment include:
Inspiring Blend (Passion) – Diffuse a few drops or apply to pulse points, to transition any agitation or lack of control into knowing that the present moment is all that matters.
Geranium – Rub a drop over your heart to indulge in a few things you appreciate about yourself right here and now.
Roman Chamomile (or Serenity blend) – Diffuse a couple of drops or drip into a cup of Epsom salts and then disperse in the bath to soak up what you love right now.
Enjoy the emotional benefits of these oils! I wish all the healthiest holidays to you. All your celebration of what is Light in the world and your life, all your acknowledgements of where you have traveled through space and time over the last 365 days, all of the growth you and your beautiful heart have made happen.
If you are yearning for some resetting, some gentle restorative detoxing after this wild holiday action, we have some great events coming for you to choose from. As always, know that our schedule is posted on www.midtownessentialoils.com/events if you aren’t on social media, and you can reach out to me directly with any questions.
Much love, and many thanks for all you Are.
Blessings, Lynell, Tom and A-Pax
First of all, Thank YOU! What we give energy to grows, so I am focusing on all the lovely personalities and characters in my life. Yes, that’s YOU!
'Tis is the season of gratitude for a better attitude. Yes, in ME!
I’d like to especially thank those who joined us for the Women’s Spiral last month. It filled me up to overflow so fantastically, I intend to hold gatherings regularly, perhaps in alignment with the corners of the year. There was so much sharing and energy exchange! Intentions, Acknowledgement, Luscious Presence. Please watch for the email notice and join us in January!
Drop me a note if this is of interest to you, to be sure you are on my list.
This last month has been such a great reflection for me. 🔥All the good things to be grateful for.
I love how November brings out the gratitude in us, for the external things around us that are positive and nourishing. And in December, I am feeling more tired and a need for some hibernation coming on. In this season of “busy,” what about those quiet, inner things?
Generosity of Spirit.
These are all fed by retreat. Slowing and breathing more deeply. At this time of year, we get to be intentional. Slowing breaths. Sleeping a little more. Stretching our shadows out to the edge of the horizon.
I want to share this delightful blend of oils with you today, for your diffuser. For all the hats you wear, for inner alignment no matter what you do, who you are, what you dream...
“Attitude of Gratitude”
1 d. Siberian Fir (Gives perspective, comfort with meaningful purpose),
2 d. Frankincense (Oil of Truth, connecting Soul with its Inner Light),
2 d. Wild Orange (This instills the belief that you can accomplish your dreams…Abundance),
1 d. Patchouli (Takes all that Passion and Strength, grounds into spirit).
As we move more fully into this holiday season, please don’t forget to take great care of YOU. If that means more downtime, find a way. If that means more juicy time with those you love, make that happen. If that means an extra hour of quiet, committing to arising an hour earlier before the kids wake up, listen and commit to reconnecting with your Source and candlelight. ✨This is the times of times, and self nurturing is more important now than ever.

In other healing news, I have become Ordained as a Minister through the Universal Life Church! I am excited to announce that I am providing wellness services for our community! Included are the AromaTouch and Symphony of the Cells treatments. If you have not experienced these, You will love how these support our systems on a cellular level. Harkening back to my days of massage training, these are the application of oils to the entire spine in sequence, for desired emotional, mental, physical, "quality of life-boosting" outcomes. These can be foundational for detoxing/destress, boosting immunity, reducing inflammation, and a return to homeostasis. I have a package special happening right now, 5 treatments for 200$.
