At first I was super sceptical; how does this help? Sure it smells pretty but how does it help your family? And isn't it a bit expensive? It took me about 2-3 months to finally warm up to young living and start thinking seriously about purchasing anything young living brand. One day, around the time when I started meditating again, she stopped me before I left and gave me a sample of peppermint, thieves, lavender and peace and calming. I thanked her and didn't think much of it for a while. To be quite honest, I didn't even touch them for a week! I believe I forgot them in my purse and then when that got cleaned out they were somewhere on my office desk for a few days. Then eventually I felt like I was in a rut with my meditation; sure it was helping me calm my mind down but only for a few minutes. So I thought I'd try out some peace and calming. I Google it and one of the sites I found said put it on the outsides of your ears and inhale.
Boom. And so started my love affair for young living.
It took my meditation practice to a whole new level. Sure meditating is all about removing yourself from possessions and just focus on being, but peace and calming helped me find my being. I went from just sitting with my legs crossed listening to guided meditation in the one giant mind app and thinking about the rest of my day and mind wandering, to being centred, quieting my mind and actually relaxing from my meditation. My anxiety decreased, I slept better and I started my path to happiness with meditation and young living.
About a week after I got signed up with the premium starter kit and I haven't looked back since. I freak out just a tiny bit when I'm out of peace and calming because it relaxes me so much and I also rub it on my chest when I have anxiety and panic attacks. It has helped me in ways you wouldn't believe. I've added it to my DIY sleep cream, put it in the diffuser when I got to bed, even wake up to it in the mornings during meditation. I'll put some on my chest when it feels tight, I'll rub some on the back of my neck when I'm getting set for a big day. It doubles as a perfume, and works overtime as an anti-depressant. Who knows how much of a wreck I'd be without peace and calming. And apparently the patchouli in the oil is found in some shampoos and may remind you of a significant other (when showing my oils to a friend she said it reminded her of her long distance boyfriend. So lovely to have made some sort of connection!).
So I ask you: how did you start with young living? Or, how can I help you start your journey with young living?
