New Year, new resolutions right…well we think not; or more aptly we feel not.
You only have to look at the synonyms attached to the word ‘resolve’ or ‘resolutions’ and you will see that it centres on a qualities of strength, of unwavering mindset. Just thinking about it makes it feel hard, particularly after a nice break over Christmas—and only having just digested (Christmas lunch included) all that 2016 meant to you. Whereas, the word ‘intend’ is centred on being able to make intentions that make you behave in a way that makes you feel positive. Anything grounded in having intent conjures emotion.
What’s the difference you might ask?
Setting or living by the regime of ‘New Year’s Resolutions’ is inherently about what you want to HAVE or ACHIEVE in 2017. Contrast this to living by intentions—New Year events or otherwise—is a powerful way to feel your dreams and goals into fruition. People naturally move towards things or people that make them feel good, and naturally move away from things that feel bad. If a goal is centred on the premise of having, or not having (aka: failure—ugh) can disappear quicker than a bottle of wine on your birthday.
Changing the mindset—or the new word we’ve coined at Bubbles HQ a ‘heart-set’—can be mentally and emotionally liberating, but supporting the physical aspect is important too. They say that it takes 21 days to form a new habit, which makes sense, we are creatures of habit after all. Our senses have a massive impact too; none greater than the sense of smell, which crosses our blood brain barrier to deliver information or evoke memory. Essential oils are the greatest carrier of these messages and intrinsically alter our mind and emotions on a physical level. You see, it’s no coinkidink that all our products are based on essential oil magic, or that we sell a range of organic essential oils and our custom blends (lovingly named Motivated, Connected, Peace, Serenity, and Happiness) individually.
Let’s get to know the Connected Blend a bit better as it’s the perfect companion for Intention Setting. Brene Brown says:
“I define connection as the energy that exists between people when they feel seen, heard, and valued; when they can give and receive without judgment.”
Connected was formulated with this is mind—to help you focus on what’s really important. To encourage you to speak from a heart space and to send love and light to all of those around you. When you need a bit of help really ‘connecting’ with your loved ones and with what’s most important to you—use Connected as the perfect support companion. Blended using Rose, Lavender, Cinnamon, Geranium, Ylang Ylang, Marjoram and of course like all of our products—it’s infused with Positive Energy.
Support your intentions for a happy 2017 with our range of natural organic skin care and body products.
And please, share with us, what you’d like to change emotionally, mentally, and physically and we will help you on your journey.
Yours, dreaming and feeling, BIG
