Living in Harmony
Today is Harmony day in Australia to encourage all Australian’s to remember to be respectful and accepting of the many and varied cultures in our communities.
Everyone wants to feel safe and free from the fear of being judged for how the look or for what they do. Often people feel threatened by differences because we fear what we do not understand.
So how do you find harmony?
To foster more acceptance and peace in our communities we have to first find peace in ourselves and accept who WE are. When you make peace with yourself and accept who and what you are, by deciding who You want to be - then you find harmony!
You are in charge of your own definition. As Eleanor Roosevelt famously said: “No-one can make you feel inferior without your consent.” When we are happy with ourselves we can feel more confident and self-assured so we can less influenced by the opinions of others. Self worth can only come from you. If you are looking for ‘self-worth’ in the approval of others, then it can only be ‘other-worth” and it is of no use to you. But when you are happy with and accept who you are then you can develop our own individuality and personal strength.
The beautiful thing about empowering yourself is that you can then send peace and love out to others and allow them to be who they are. To help you find more self-acceptance I would recommend regular use of the orange oil; creativity. Orange encourages us to connect with ourselves and accept who we are. Yellow is for joy and also for assisting us in enjoying our own individuality and self-empowerment. Or you might use Gold for self-identity and confidence. Do you see how many times I’ve said self - that’s what it’s all about!
Blue is for peace and for the expression of who you are, so that would be great in the perfume on top of your oil of choice.
If you would like any help in choosing the best colour (although you can’t go wrong with any of them) but you are welcome to contact me for more assistance. Create yourself and enjoy being you.
