The colors are popping and as we move into Scorpio season and darker evenings, maybe your date nights are heating up too...
Wherever you are, I hope you are having the social time and ideas for wellness that you might want and need. There has got to be a tipping point for each of us, and I hope yours tips into healthy living.
...Did you know?
Our human ancestors were exposed naturally to some 300 plant
essences each day, just in day to day foraging?
This was calming and soothing, as humans evolved with plants.
Currently, we receive input from less than 20 plants each day,
and our indoor modern life has
replaced nature with synthetic inputs.
Through neurobiology, we have learned that our bodies
perceive synthetic chemicals as stressors
to the nervous system.
I don't know about you, but this makes me feels like it's
time for an about face!
I am excited to be walking this wellness path with you. I provide 30 minute wellness consultations cost-free. I really enjoy working with my clients to reach their health goals, and look forward to learning what YOUR top health priorities are.
Take great care of yourself, as we
shed our worries and move forward
together, but lighter.
My Dear Friend,
I want to support your Dreams.
What if I told you that I could help make it easier for you to dream up
your ideal life and bring it to fruition?
The better our sleep (and we rebuild our brain cells), and the more settled our mind is with gut ease (finding our inner flow and release stagnancy), it becomes easier to find health for ourselves in this world.
This is my dream for you... and what I'd love to see for humanity!
...for us to each let go of every single thought
or habit that does not serve us any longer.
For us to find our balance and flow, and let our peace
radiate outward to the rest of the world.
Here are a couple of helpful ideas!
May you let go of those leaves in this season... all those things that aren't serving any longer, that actually weigh you down and keep you caught in an old pattern.
May your truth help you find your freedom!
...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.
