Today I could tell I wasn’t going to get the uninterrupted writing time I needed to work on some freelance work. We had to do some family errands, and I decided to put on my “om” necklace that carries a place for a little cotton disc on which you drop a little bit of an essential oil (okay, I don’t know where the disc are, so I used the paper towel that was still in the necklace from last time). I chose Young Living’s Joy oil. It’s a blend that is supposed to create “magnetic energy and bring joy to the heart.”

Work with a practitioner who does a meridian tapping technique like Emotional Freedom Technique or Be Set Free Fast, or Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR). Or consider hypnotherapy. Mainstream talk therapy is great, too, but adding in these modalities can energetically re-set you in some powerful ways. So can flower essences and essential oils. […]
