I Feel Better Balm - Soothe More and more people are coming forward and speaking of the trauma in their lives. I think that it is safe to say that each of us has personally experienced trauma or knows of someone who has experienced trauma. I had a "for a season" friend whose husband had been tortured somewhere in the middle east. I met her while I was healing of PTSD that I developed in 2006 when I lost so many people dear to me in such a short period of time. One of these people was my father who was killed in an auto accident. He died before I even knew that he had been in an accident. No one called me even though my business card (with the same last name) was right next to his drivers license in his wallet.
So many of us have stories like this.
When a person first experiences a traumatic event, they tend to keep talking about the event running the scenario through their minds. They keep trying to make sense of the shocking experience that they have just been through. Their mind whirls. We chose oils in this formula to calm and soothe excessive thinking and talking, to quiet the shock of the event, and to ease the pressure in the heart. With time, Soothe will assist in restoring emotional balance and help to release the grief, anger and rage. Finally, this blend will help to ground us, to ease us through this life transition in a grounded and peaceful way.
Shock and grief heal in their own time, but our intention with this formulation is that the process is something we move through with grace and assistance from this blend making the journey into wholeness a stepping stone to a more compassionate and loving person. Isn't it interesting that some of the most peaceful and loving people we know have had such difficult and challenging lives.
I Feel Better Balm - Release Many of us may have been in long term abusive relationships that we didn't at the time have the personal power to get out of, or maybe we were children and couldn't. For those of us who have led lives filled with trauma, the impact can come upon us in various ways. A single event can be the final straw that open us up to all the past trauma in our lives. We may not realize what is happening and why all of a sudden our mental and or physical ability to handle stress is greatly impacted. We may develop illnesses of self punishment with no conscious awareness of why we got them.
Suppressed trauma is so damaging to our health, the way we view our world, and almost without fail, our intimate relationships. We may end up in relationships in which we are unable to open our hearts due to this past trauma. The relationships often fail and we are robbed of the joy of truly surrendering our hearts to our spouses, partners, or family members. This is usually most readily apparent in marriages that fail.
We developed Release to help you have the freedom to seeing the world through new, clearer eyes. This formula assists us in releasing deep emotional pain, but never through re-experiencing it consciously. As those who have lived a life filled with trauma continue to experience more trauma, little by little their confidence and self worth gets chipped away sometimes to a point that the one being treated poorly thinks it's their fault that the other person goes into a rage. It is for this reason that Release also contains oils that help us re-build our confidence. It assists us to release the unknown anxiety that traumatized people often experience. And finally, Release safely grounds us and reconnects us with our true self protecting us as we are re-born.
