It was not that long ago when I was preparing a creative event for women,that I came to a sudden stop! I was so overwhelmed with all the work for that – plus my ordinary work which was teaching art classes and babysitting my granddaughters.
I was doing a business course and implementing goals to increase my business presence both locally and on the net, learning about google, website building, advertising on Facebook, making business connections, learning how to do webinars…argggg the list goes on!
Life was hectic and I was clearly not coping. Then one morning getting ready for Art Class in walks a lady called Penny with one of my regular clients. She said to me straight away ‘You look stressed’. I said ‘I AM!’ with a caved-in voice……. She said ‘I have an oil for that!’ I said ‘What?’ She proceeded to take a little amber coloured bottle out of her bag, opened the lid, gave me the bottle and said,’ Take one drop of oil on your finger and rub it on the back of your neck like this’. She was miming the procedure. I followed her direction. Now, Penny said, ‘put a drop of oil inside your feet like this’. I felt an immediate calm, my whole life force went aaaahhhhhhh! The pain in my chest went away……and I felt very calm. While I was fully present to the calmness, I asked Penny what oil it was, and she said, ‘it is the oil of Balance’. She then pulled out a book, and said ‘I wonder what oil you really need? Here, close your eyes, flick through the book, stop on a page and read it.’
Again following her directions, I stopped on the page ‘Oil of Frankincense’. Mmm, I thought so she said, and reaching into her bag pulled out the oil of Frankincense and said here, ‘place a drop on the roof of your mouth’. Again she demonstrated, and I followed. WOW! That was it! I felt all my blood vessels in my head become tingly…….I immediately felt very present, and confident. To this day I do not know how. I loved the aroma of both oils. I was in heaven.
Penny said, ‘Keep the oils Wanda you need them now.’ I said thank you.
