...From fear to inspiration, you are invited!
My Dear Friend,
I think FEAR is something we’ve come closer to than ever before lately. For our own selves. For our families. For our planet. That there isn’t enough for all. That maybe we are too late. That we don’t have the solutions -or will- necessary to turn this ship around.
I know, it’s been tough on me and us, also.
Many of us have felt cutoff, alone, maybe even desperate. There has been an unseen enemy, working on a cellular level, and for so many, this aspect of the last 18 months has been the hardest of all. Virus. Seeming endless wildfires. Climate change. And the stressful nature of fear has made it worse.
I hear you.
I am with you.
I feel you.
I see you.
And I want to take a quick moment to Share, Inspire, and Invite.
We need to share good stories with each other now more than ever, don’t you think?
The move towards our need for sustainability has been something at the front of my mind. Others like me, have been asking doTERRA to turn more surely towards stewardship of the planet, and they have! I am excited. We know their products are amazing, but we must tend to the waste stream.
Foaming hand soap and cleaner concentrate, formulated with antibacterial oils, are now packaged in readily recyclable aluminum cans. The company turned away from shipping water, and the concentrate is now truly concentrated (it’s a small bottle now!).
The laundry detergent, is now coming in biodegradable pods and newly released dishwasher pods also are intended to help us reduce waste as much as possible.
Hand and body lotion is now coming in a soft-sided refill bag, rather than hard plastic.
I continue to be inspired by innovation, and a commitment to health and science.
doTERRA has just released OnGuard Tablets that contain Vitamins C and D, plus zinc and Beta glucan, giving us ImmunoModulation in these times. A daily boost has been found to be so powerful for growing resiliency in our bodies and protection in our families.
Ever smell lemon myrtle?
It is truly one of my favorites, activating our pineal gland and energizing the mind. This, coupled with litsea and clove, have been found to fight various bacteria in petri dish studies. These three oils are the backbone of the new home-cleansing oil, Abode. This new formulation is the flavor of the new home care products, which effectively allows us to create an uplifted, elevated, sense of a Clean Ecosystem where we feed ourselves, sleep, and for many, work. The Abode oil is too strong for the skin, but is wonderful for diffusers, or counters, surfaces, dishes, and laundry.
Our own bodies are a part of the home ecosystem, so OnGuard remains our strong boost for our bodies, while Abode steps in as the top pick for all the home care approaches.
I would love to reconnect sometime soon, some ideas:
doTERRA zoom classes covering sections of the Evolve convention: based on crowdsourcing interest... Pick which areas you'd like to learn more about here. Please weigh in to see cool science & hopeful stories!
Wellness Wednesday walks (any day according to my schedule): reach out!
New moon circle, in person event, October 3 5-7pm. Save your seat by replying here.
Hop in and subscribe to my YOUTube channel, where I have saved a pretty large variety of education and inspiration. Check it out, be sure to click the bell!
Grateful for your presence in this world.
I can’t tell you all the amazing things we are learning at the global Evolve connection, but the focus on mind-body, personal wellness- home wellness ecosystem, and our work in fair sourcing and supply around the planet... really got my wheels turning. In a good way!
When we believe in health with the mind and we are mind-full, the body can follow suit. We cannot work on our inner health and ignore our home environment wellness, and the chemicals we bring in to our inner abode. Sometimes we need a little prompt to get into that state. Many of the new products are much about improving our mindset and supporting our limbic system, but really getting into ALIGNMENT and transforming our home into an abode of Sanctuary. Safety. Health. ✨
And don't forget, about my YouTube channel. We have so many tools that are being submerged right now as we attempt to educate and connect. My YouTube channel is simply @lynellgarfield; please subscribe! I'll shortly be adding to the collection on managing September ups and downs with our weather shifting and school immersion!
I have a blend for September that I want to share. This blend is incredible and supports this feeling that we have just gone through a portal into a whole new start, a new year! Have you felt this way too? It's like that Lion's Gate portal of August just shifted everything into gear... and this blend is fresh, focused, activating, supported. I Love It!
Add these oils into a 5 mL roller ball with coconut oil to the top.
Let this blend carry you forward into your highest dreams! Think new year activation... this will help to bring you into a state of excited activating and solid alignment through this coming month!
You might watch for our scheduled classes coming up soon, as well as an update on Moon Circle gatherings. We will explore the fruition of silence and getting back together in sanctuary again.
Consider this September to be about aligning your most resilient personal health and wellness, as a full alignment for your highest self. If you do not yet have your wholesale account set up with doTERRA, please reach out and I'll help you get all set; this is a potent time to align with the benevolent, ethical, science-based company that doTERRA is. Let's take the next step together. It'll be fun. Promise. I'll take the scary out of it and we will craft a plan based on YOU. Your dreams. Let's manifest together!
I am here, rooting you on!
The Lion's Gate portal opened two days ago, on 8/8, as it does every year. This was quite a bestowment of beauty, rising energies, and clarity.
Boundaries are a prominent theme for me, as we get clear, and this arose big time for me through this time of Cosmic excitement.
Here in the Truckee Meadows, most kids are back in classrooms all of a sudden, some for the first time since June 2020. This reminds us all of the need to honor and respect seen, and unseen, boundaries. I wanted to share the Back to School Essentials collection that doTERRA has brought back to equip our families with tools for the unseen boundaries.
Be sure to order this as a Loyalty order so you get the % and shipping points back due you! Here's a great Back to School videoshared by Dr. Jessica Herzog: she's awesome at sharing the science of how to best protect our families. How to support gut, brain, and behavioral health naturally.
I challenge you to implement strategies for choice making at home. As we reflect on our own desires, we can dispel that which we are NOT welcoming in.
These heavy western states fires that have been distressing and displacing so many, and they are also bringing in more toxins. We can help purify our homes using oils and supplements.
Did you know?
Diffusing Purify blend can purge heavy metals from our indoor air quality. When I pair this with either Citrus Bliss blend or the Serenity blend, the whole family loves it... all the while it runs, this helps remove the impacts of wildfire smoke... on our indoor air quality and respiratory system.
So what will you say YES to today? ...Call in, invite, invoke?
I am not quite ready for the Fall season yet, with all the pumpkin spice stuffs... but this diffuser blend is giving a happy brightening to our morning! Especially how we have come to understand the connection between gut-brain health and the immune system.
Here is my diffuser blend to Welcome your Day!
Lemon -2d (the oil of focus)
Peppermint -1d (the oil of buoyancy, cognitive support)
Vetiver -1d (helpful for concentration)
Petitgrain -1d (calming, like a "masculine" lavender)
Wild Orange -2d (uplifting and the oil of abundance)
May your day be bright and your heart remain open to fresh new ideas today!
From Venus, we are celebrating Friday. Viernes, the Spanish word for Friday, originates from Venus; this is her day. She reminds us, How about spending some of our hard earned funds and efforts on ourselves? On beauty? On self-care, so we are whole and full and can share from overflow with those we love? Venus is sensuous. She represents Love, appeal, beauty, passion, and ambition.
How many times do you give of yourself each day? Each week?
Do you receive, when you give?
I want to reach out and appeal to beautiful energetic exchanges on this day. This almost new moon and almost Lion's gate opening day. Many energies are swirling, and by reflecting within, we celebrate and empower our highest self to share with the world. 🌏
Your desire to be the Venus in the seashell, to receive love from energies around you, to realize YOU can serve YOU, also.
Our circle brings it back.
Beauty. Your adding to a community of Sensuous Love. Passionate reflections with the self, and ambitious dreams of supporting others with like mind-hearts. I will hold the image of sacred foot baths today. Of the ancient women bathing together. Of beautiful song and story shared. Of grounding and uplifting each other.
Think of Aphrodite. Goddess of Love. A true Venusian image.
Think of Innana. Ancient Goddess of beauty, political power and justice.
Think of Athena. Goddess of wisdom. Of mental clarity and prowess.
🌙This weekend's new moon circle was to be in support of the Sacred. Bringing it back into our everyday. However, now our region has received such impact by wildfires, it is no longer possible to gather in our oasis. If you are interested in a virtual offering instead, please reply YES to this note. I would love to facilitate this, if there is interest... please be sure to let me know.
Regardless, I invite you to bring the Sacred back to your life by blessing your body & soul with nourishment. For You, of You, through You.
Or make this blend for your diffuser, filling with water to the mark, then add:
Clary Calm (1d)
OR drip these oils into Epsom salts before adding to a swirling warm tub.
I Celebrate YOU, and the Sacred in each of us, Goddess.
What else can help you feel cherished and supported right now? If I can help with ideas, drop me a note... as we know, it takes a Village!
Feel that craving for energy and well-being?
Here are two recipes to help enhance your life with clean beauty.
1. Hello Energy!
Two drops each of Wild Orange, oil of abundance and Peppermint, oil of buoyancy. Apply to the wrists, rub onto the back of the neck and then take three deep breaths to let in the positive, uplifting aroma.
2. Calm Wellness.
Two drops each of Wild Orange and Eucalyptus, the oil of well-being. Apply these to the diffuser to fill your working or morning space with energy and a sense of well-being, or drip these drops onto the tiles while you are steaming up a shower for a true spa experience.
Our Conscious New Moon Community continues to grow and bless us with safe harbor for weathering some of life's storms with grace and beauty. The best way to grow resilient to the ups and downs of human life in the time of a global pandemic, is to grow a strong support circle. One of the best things in life is sharing my beautiful friends with each other, so we can hold space for each other and lean into our highest form. I'd love to have you drop in for our live in person New Moon Circle, or live online Full Moon Meditation.
These are all listed out at www.lynellgarfield.com/events.html.
If you are reading this, you already know my name is Lynell Garfield and I Love to help grow all things Wellness. Using my scientific and spiritual background, I work with clients on their personal health, others on team wellness with retreats and uplifting education.
My programmatic offerings include Ritual Resets and Conscious Community building to provide a buddy system for improving our wellness with positive support. I also help provide whole BE-ing wellness with Applied Aromatherapy treatments, Sacred Circles for our Conscious Community, and Super-natural approaches to a wellness lifestyle. There is no one size fits all... and so to that end, you are now engaged with the resources, members, and educational that is this group. Let's chat and see what's best for You.
Yes, I am multi-passionate, maybe like yourself! Meaning, I work on different levels, helping others. Healing. Running energy on all levels. I AM many things. I DO love to find solutions in natural ways, digging to find the roots of the issue and offering novel solutions that work gently, wherever possible. I provide cellular neurological solutions with aromatherapy alongside Reiki energy healing. I see BE-ing EnLivened as our highest task here, and function as a wellness coach, bringing all the bodies together. Emotional. Mental Wellness. Physical Vitality. Spiritual Balance. As a problem solver, I love inspiring healthy shifts and am a purveyor of hope. I am a children's author and water scientist and love multi-faceted solutions. I am a mama Bear, and gather women so we can raise the energy and support each other in healing circles. The rich basket of community is so intricate, made up of all our own fabric and cultures.
Some common themes I see in my work are trapped feelings festering and becoming cellular inflammation as a source of dis-ease. When we feel not heard or supported, this can manifest as stuck energy. If we can provide natural solutions to move this through again, we peel back the onion layers and sometimes, our secondary issues (the symptoms) can resolve themselves.
For many of my clients, having personal support for their new wellness journey gives the consistency needed to jump start the life they've dreamt of... be it finding hormone balance, getting past stress and migraines naturally, having more solid and deep sleep, or helping reduce gut inflammation and tending that microbiome for improved digestion and mental balance.
The quarantine sure brought feelings of isolation for so many, and our conscious community became a safe haven and springboard of support! Pairing a spiritual practice and reflection up with personal coaching, we move the needle for those desiring this group-and-personal connection. Insights become tangible goals, and quietude with prompts becomes fertile ground for the Soul's seeds to fall - nourished and growing with lunar cycle energy.
Check out the inspired events coming up through the summer!
So many resources abound for you to choose from. My YouTube channel has educational health and wellness videos you might like. Remember to click on the bell to hear about my new videos before anyone else!
Are you on social media? There are two groups on Facebook you might like. The Wellness Inspiration group, where we dive into complex issues like functional medicine, including integrated nutrition and pure therapeutic essential oils, or the 2021 New Moons Community group.
We are spirit beings in human bodies, so a focus on whole BEing health is a strong tactic I employ. Please pick the group that feels right for you!
I welcome you to reach out for a complimentary wellness chat, let's put our heart-minds together and uncover the solution that's right for you.
So many thanks for stepping onto your wellness path.
Loud noises can be really hard on certain two legged and four leggeds.
This Fourth of July can be a little gentler with the use of some powerful calming agents and emotional support!
I'd love to share some solid ideas on using your natural toolkit to help out your beloved four legged, baby, veteran, older person, or anyone sensitive to loud noises:
Clean out your diffuser with a paper towel and 30-60 mins before you plan to leave or before firework noise begins, begin diffusing calming oils in the area where your sensitive family member or pet will be spending time.
Maximize benefits by pairing Lavender oil up with one of these:
-restful blend (serenity),
-comforting blend (console),
-grounding blend (balance),
-reassuring blend (peace).
Apply serenity and balance oils both sequentially or blended, to your own pulse points and stay with the pet to calm and soothe, or apply directly on your family member. Remember, this combination is very effective at giving solace, reducing feelings of anxiousness and panic, and can normalize irregularities they may be feeling by applying directly over the heart and breathing in deeply.
With pets, if you hold them and have oils on your body or clothing, you act as a natural diffuser for them.
Place a few drops of any of these oils (above) onto your pet's favorite bed, blanket or toy to comfort during stressful times.
An oral supplement of copaiba can offer powerful neurological support, deliver antioxidants, and help relieve anxious feelings for pets or humans.
If your dog's diet does not yet have probiotics, you may consider bringing this in with omega-3... the use of probiotics has been found to lessen anxiety in dogs and reduce levels of cortisol.
You might get add a calming essential oil to your car's litter box, whether at home or traveling.
And we cannot emphasize this enough: Keep pets indoors and be sure they have plenty of fresh clean water.
(Pet oils and nutrition wisdom gleaned from SpOil Your Pet, by Frezzo DVM and Jeremias MSc)
Be safe, and have a wonderful Fourth of July, my friends!
May I be happy.
May I be healthy.
May I be free of suffering.
May I be free of mental anxiety.
May I live in peace.
May my life be blessed with ease.
May you be happy.
May you be healthy.
May you be free of suffering.
May you be free of mental anxiety.
May you live in peace.
May your life be blessed with ease.
May WE be happy.
May WE be healthy.
May WE be free of suffering.
May WE be free of mental anxiety.
May WE live in peace.
May OUR lives be blessed with ease.
✨ My friends, please choose a person you wish to bring love to and repeat.
Now please think of a group of people somewhere in the planet. Repeat.
This prayer was originally transcribed from Danielle LaPorte's videos. Not sure of its origin but want to pass it along freely to help end suffering.
To open the heart and feel loving, oils for support of this Loving prayer include Rose. Geranium. Align. Marjoram. Forgive. Pink Pepper. Bergamot Mint. Be well and loving, my friends.
Gratitude needs us just every bit as much as we need her?
Like the moon shines the light of the sun - what if... "Thank You," unspoken, feels the tear of being left out, for too many days, parched and without water?
What if gratitude, along with her beautiful sister, "Generosity of Spirit," needs our own voices to expand them into existence?
They say... we are made of stardust.
They say, we are in an expanding Universe.
I take that to mean,
that anything is possible.
but only, when we are working with eye contact, intention, and presence that meets the gaze of another levelly.
In presence. with open heart.
When we step into that place in response to another,
the energy passing between could spark a match or, just maybe, set a nebula in motion.
You just never know, my friend, unless we take a breath and open our heart, risk using that very breath to make eye contact and allow two universes to meet up in the simple presence of "Thank You."
My beautiful friends, the soul is calling me to share with you some creations I've been cooking up.
We can't be the only ones with severe allergies right now!
In our home, gluten has been wreaking havoc and creating massive inflammation... to the point that one yellow pollen curtain dropping out of a massive pine tree over our back lawn caused my kiddo two full days of not feeling well, and not able to breathe.
BIG wake up call for this mama.
Realizing the attention we have been giving to inflammation since C V D hit, our approaches for this type of inflammation can be the same as what we had to use in our home this week.
When this stuff gets so scary, you want to have the tools on hand to get it into the bloodstream and take the peak off immediately!
Also for any breathing issues, we must try Aromatically, to open the airways. We always talk about Lemon, Lavender, and Peppermint to mimick the effects of an allergy medicine - well, we got creative also! Frankincense helps greatly, as does lemongrass, for inflammation. I figure, our breathing tissues get fired up and crabby just like any overabused tissues.
So we went for it.
And we had to commit to repeating and maximizing the effects, but it worked! He was 70% back on Saturday, and 100% yesterday.
**I want to ask you to please reach out if there's anything I can do to help you and your family on YOUR wellness journey. Even just in offering emotional support! This time can be so tough, when our loved ones are suffering and we are holding it all together.
Also, I've got my table set up if you ever need to call in a treatment. The cellular support we have available through these therapeutic oils is unparalleled.
I'll invite you to check out our upcoming events on my website, http://www.lynellgarfield.com/upcoming-workshops.html, reach out if you see something that appeals... let's be sure to get you in!
-Please note that our gatherings will be taking in a backyard hue again shortly! I am SO excited for this!
Take great care of YOU, and I am sending all the best rainy day blessings to You and Yours.
