Living the Life with Essential Oils
How It Changed My Life After My Heart Attack!
If you read my story yesterday, about “The Six Things I Wish I Knew Before My Heart Attack!”, then this is going to be the icing on the cake!
Not only did I transform my mind, I feel I have now transformed my spirit and my life. While I was recovering from my heart attack, I received a gift of Young Living Essential Oils and a diffuser. I began to use the diffuser and oils every day as I was relaxing in my recliner trying to digest the nightmare I had just lived through suffering from a cardiac arrest, 8 nights in the hospital, and as a result severe anxiety. These oils and the relaxing music I listened to were the only thing that could calm my spirits, stress, and anxiety levels.
Stress is a key contributor that effects our bodies in ways that we can’t even imagine. We think to ourselves, ‘oh, I got this. I can’t handle this, no problem.’ as you are taking on the burdens of your family trying to support everyone through difficult times and deal with your own worries. You are such a loving person, you put all of your priorities on the back burner because after all, you want to help. That’s just who we are, right? Most women would agree whole-heartedly; it’s just in our DNA to nurture and protect.
The thing to remember though, is that we have to protect ourselves first, or we won’t be there to protect anyone else. Much like when you’re in an airplane and the oxygen masks fall down because you hit turbulence and start to descending quickly. You are supposed to reach for your mask first and then help someone else. Trust me when I say, you don’t want to go through the experience I did. I suffered from a heart attack called “Broken Heart Syndrome”. I thought that was something someone died of when they lost a loved one. Turns out that it is all brought on by stress. I didn’t lose a loved one, I was only dealing with work stress. That’s all, yeah right!
Thank God, I’m here to tell you…Don’t sweat the small stuff! That’s all it is; work or not, it’s small when it’s compared to your life!
Stress can affect a number of things you probably don’t even realize:
~ Stress releases adrenaline, causing heart rate and blood pressure to rise.
~ Chronic stress may damage the walls of your arteries.
~ Chronic stress can also weaken the immune systems, uncomfortable physical symptoms, like headaches and stomach problems.
So, now you’re thinking, ‘how can I avoid stress when I have so much going on?’ The answer for me was a combination of the “The Six Things I Wish I Knew Before My Heart Attack!” (check out yesterday’s article in the link at the bottom of this article) and living with essential oils!
The next step I took, was turning to God and focusing on Him and His plan for me in my life. Living through a heart attack truly increased my own spiritual awareness so much more than I ever would have imagined. I guess living and surviving that nightmare really wakes you up from the inside out. I then turned my focused on my soul and who I was as a person and what I could change. Realizing that change comes from within and how you react to situations was the key for me. Understanding and coming to terms with the fact that no matter how hard we try to change someone else, we simply can’t. The only thing we change is our reaction. This started a chain reaction for me and a lot of soul searching. I’m pleased to say though that with support and the right attitude I was able to make those changes for myself and I’m so much more relaxed and feel like I am ready to take on the world.
What keeps me feeling this way as I go through my day-to-day trials, worries, and frustrations…..is Young Living Essential Oils. As soon as I started using these oils I was bought in immediately, and now that I am fully recovered, and a much better version of myself, I made the decision to become a distributor for Young Living to share the changes that these oils had on me personally and how they have helped me to deal with the everyday stresses of life in general!
