Back pain and Raindrop relief


Hi Folks! 

Last long weekend hubby did some vacuuming at home and kinda sprained/hurt his back. So, I did raindrop massage for him and he felt much better now.

One of the benefit of raindrop is realignment of the spine which is why we also could see some increase in height(see the picture where I mark the before and after raindrop height...an increased of almost 1cm). 

Our body is like a car or machine too which needs realignment from time to time so that the circulation flows smoothly and we feel at our optimum condition to proceed with our daily task. 

My raindrop instructor has been doing raindrop for her children since they were as young as 7(we can change the oils used to suit the age of the person having the raindrop massage) and her 5 children all grown pretty tall(we wonder if this could be the reason 😊). Anyhow, likewise when we do frequent heavy lifting and have bad sitting and walking posture, our alignment runs off easily too! So it's good to have raindrop session once a month for maintenance and overall wellness.

Also, raindrop is also good for the following:
* Balance and Re-align the Energy Centers of the Body –  The oils help support the body to come back into balance by opening energy flow throughout the body. The essential oil blend of Valor helps the body align and is often referred to as "chiropractor in a bottle"

* Reduce Stress and Minor Anxiety – The oils enhance positive emotions and release negative emotions that are subconsciously stored on a cellular level. 

* Aid the Body's Natural Response to Irritation and Injury – Thyme and Oregano support the immune, respiratory, nervous, and other body systems.

* Ease Occasional Muscle, Bone, and Joint Discomfort – Muscles that are sore, spastic or stressed will also benefit. Basil, Wintergreen, Marjoram, Cypress and Peppermint essential oils reduce tension in muscles. 

* Improve Immune System Functions – Thyme and Oregano essential oils support the immune system; and aid in the release of toxins in the body. 

* Emotional Well Being and Release – Essential oils cross the blood-brain barrier and effect the limbic system where emotions are stored in the "brain's emotional computer". 

* Help Detox the Body Systems – The oils being high in phenols cleanse cellular receptor sites and enhance cleansing of the body.

My hubby who mostly a late sleeper, knocked out on the fourth oils I used for foot vitaflex(there are altogether 9 oils used in this raindrop technique). It's a great way to let our mind and body relax and detox in a way. I would get him to abstain from coffee for a week to aid in the entire detox process. 

I am very glad that I have learnt this raindrop massage technique so that I could do it for my family and loved ones. Would you like learn to do it too? We could probably gather in a group and learn it together. Even if you don't get to master the entire technique at first go(it took us few rounds to get the technique right)....the raindrop oils itself applied in the sequence indicated has such properties that helps the body to do its job! And to what the founder of this raindrop technique, Gary Young said, everyone can learn raindrop!

Wish to find out more how about the oils used in raindrop technique? Just give me a buzz and I am happy to share more with you.

Alternatively, you can also easily sign up as member here and get the oils yourself at wholesale price. Just so simple!

Cheers to a healthy weekend folks!

Trip to Taman Tasik Titiwangsa

Hi folks!

What have you done during the Raya break? We have make a trip back to visit my in-laws and during the first day while the adults are busy catching up, the kids were glued to their gadgets.

So, on the second day, we decided to bring the kids out for a "gadget detox"and some fun outdoor time. We went to the Titiwangsa Lake Gardens or Taman Tasik Titiwangsa after my mil's friend strongly recommended this place which has been reopened after some renovation work was done.

As it was raining that morning, we waited awhile before setting out to Taman Tasik Titiwangsa. When we reached i was wow-ed by the varieties of bicycles you can find there! There are two-seaters, three-seaters and even four, and six-seaters! Yes...it makes family fun time even more wonderful. Imagine the whole family of 6 cycling together in this riding "machine" i called it..awesome time!


Each bicycles are up for rent at MYR10 per hour. And for the four or six-seaters, it cost around MYR40-50 per hour. They also has some battery-powered toy car ride for younger children at higher rate at MYR25 per half-an-hour.

The kids have awesome time cycling around and requested to make another trip the next day!

Now, we have found a lovely place and lovely way to spend our time together as a family the next time we make a trip back to our in-law's house. Hopefully this can create more togetherness and memories besides glueing on gadgets! 

How is your Raya break folks? Hope it has been awesome for you and family too.

Cheers!

AFT session with Claudia Hofmaier

Hi folks!

Ever since I started exploring, using and sharing about essential oils, i have made a lot of friends a.k.a the "oilers" who are very passionate about health, healing and taking care of our body naturally. Some of these friends are certified aromatherapist, certified massage therapist and some have taken some certification courses in the field of aromatherapy due to their strong interest and keen passion to help others to participate in the journey towards health and abundance. 

During my recent cruise trip, I got to know Claudia Hofmaier, who is a certified Aroma Freedom Practitioner and Instructor and managed to have a one-to-one AFT online session with her.




I have spoke about Aroma Freedom Technique (AFT) before in my previous post, but i must say i have not been very consistent in practicing it. However, each time i felt some emotional blockages, or feeling my body is not feeling quite right or have some blockages or discomfort, i would make time after shower to practice AFT alone in the room(my much treasured ME time).

Long story cut short, i always have a sense of release and also a clearer mind after the AFT session and i sleep better too.

During this one-to-one session with my friend, Claudia, i was led(or facilitated) by her during the entire AFT process to set my intention, understand how i feel about my intention and also to clear the blockages or the negative emotions i have attached with my intention.

My intention:
1. To MANIFEST the BEST of me (to achieve my goal set for Dec 2017)

Negative voices:
1. How would others look at me?
2. Are you sure you've got what it takes to do this?

Physical:
1. Feeling my shoulder and back very heavy (burden) - all sorts of negatives voices inside my mind
2. Feeling my heart shrinking - confidence level
3. Feeling a pressure in the middle of my back - how others look at me

Intention scale started at 3 and ended with 8.5 (after 3 rounds of going through the negative emotions i had, each time feeling how my body react to the negative voices within me).

I feel really good(no more backache, heavy chest and feeling caged and my heart felt expanded) after the session although i know i still have to put some plans into action to achieve what I intend to do. I have to remember all the positive messages that i received during the AFT session to remind myself to charge forward:

Messages:
1. Do not be concerned with how others look at you, whatever things we wish to do there're always pros and cons, there're always different views from people around us.
2. Just DO it, keep it going, U can do it!
3. Just DO it the RIGHT way!

Oils used during AFT:
Frankinsence, StressAway, Lavender

You can also add on essential oils blends like Transformation, Inner Child and Clarity.
Interested to get these essential oils for your own emotional release? Leave me a comment or sign up here to get these oils at wholesale price to start your journey to abundance of health and wellness!

This session just proves to me once more on how emotional blockage can hinder us to act accordingly to our Best and Truest self and also causes physical discomfort at the same time.

So, from now on, i have to take some time off in the morning and evening to do AFT daily for the next 21 days or daily till i reach the goal i have set for myself! Yes, I can do it! You can too! Just take some time off to think of what you intend to do/improve in your life today and take the action....JUST DO IT!

We are the only one who can make the change on what we intend to improve in our lives! 

Hope everyone can join me on this journey of releasing that emotional blockage and charge forward with much joy and energy!



Cheers and Selamat Hari Raya to all Muslims friends and also to those who are celebrating! Have a lovely reunion time with yourself and with your closed ones....
