Have you ever looked back at your life and wondered “What happened? Where’s the joy and inner freedom that I used to have?”
I think alot of us feel that way. We have to grow up and survive. In the process, our “inner child”, who we really are, often gets shoved aside or buried with the trash that Life throws at us. One of the keys to finding emotional balance, therefore, is reconnecting with our inner child, accepting its pain and listening without judgement, and then integrating that healing part of us into our present lives.
There are several ways to access those wounded parts of us. A couple that I have used personally is EFT (Emotional Freedom Techniques) and the techniques I learned at Journey Intensives that I have attended. I always use essential oils along with whatever emotional release work I am using. They allow me to relax and release on a deeper level than I would be able to otherwise.
Young Living has assembled a collection of oils that are specifically designed to help us deal with our emotions, no matter how deeply they are buried. It is called the Feelings Collection. One of the blends in the Feelings kit is Inner Child. It is a beautiful blend of orange, tangerine, jasmine, ylang ylang, sandalwood, spruce, lemongrass, and neroli. The smell is exquisite and better yet, the oils may stimulate the memory reponse needed to reconnect with our inner self.
