A Sense of Purpose and Essential Oils

A Sense of Purpose and Essential Oils

There may be times in your life when you feel you have lost your sense of purpose or are unsure what it is. You may feel that you followed a path that no longer seems to fit the person you have become. Or perhaps you have changed careers several times and are no longer sure what you should be doing.

Maybe your children have grown up and moved away from home or married and you feel that all the energy you directed into their welfare has nowhere to go and your life has lost direction.

You may need to talk to someone about the above issues but you can also use essential oils to help you gain some clarity. They can help you understand that you are where you are meant to be at this moment in time.

If you don’t like where you are or if you’re not sure where you are meant to be choose an oil and spend a little time with her and then take a step in the direction you would like to go. If you like the direction in which you’re heading continue that way if not stop and course correct.

You can use the following oils in several different ways. Place 4-5 drops in half a cup of full fat milk and add to a warm bath and allow your mind to wander along the possibilities of your life’s purpose. Place 3 or 4 drops in a vaporizer while you meditate on the possibilities. Place a drop or two on a tissue while you are outside with your feet on the grass or sand, breathe in and out and allow possibilities to fill your thoughts before choosing one. Have a massage with a blend of oils and see what thoughts enter your mind in this relaxed state.

After each oil you will find a Fragrant Change Healing Affirmation that you can use as a guide while considering your sense of purpose.

Oils to help you in your quest to find your purpose are:

Angelica (Angelica archangelica) can help you see and understand your life and purpose from a different perspective. You may come to realize that your sense of purpose has changed perhaps many times over the course of your life and it may be time to change again. This can encourage a sense of optimism allowing you to appreciate your life and all you have learned so far and can continue to learn.

If you are still unsure what your life purpose is, now is the time to ask for angelic support. Be open to all the possibilities as the answer you seek may come from nature, music, another person or a totally unexpected source.
