Today is May 4th. May the fourth seems like a normal Monday, but far and wide nerds like me know it as "Star Wars Day"; originating from the iconic line "May the force be with you". The Force, is a mysterious energy that binds the galaxy together. The force has a light side and a dark side. The jedi focus on keeping on the light side to bring peace and justice to the galaxy, while the sith work with the dark side craving passion, strength and power. There is always talk of finding balance in the force amidst the chaos of trying to bring down the evil Empire (and later in the saga, the First Order). Like seeking balance in the force, I try to balance between my negative and positive thoughts. I consider it my own jedi battle to find a personal balance in my mind. When I start to have those negative thoughts, I take a moment to grab my DoTerra Balance blend, and do a small grounding meditation my teacher, Elena Swan, taught me. DoTerra's Balance is a beautiful blend of Spruce, Ho Wood, Frankincense, Blue Tansy, and Blue Chamomile with Fractionated Coconut Oil. This oil blend provides a tranquil woody aroma that creates a calm atmosphere. This is the oil that began my journey with DoTerra, and it is one I often recommend for people struggling to find solutions to support stress and anxiety issues.
