No ordinary moments

I’ve been on a journey to improve my health and my life for quite some time now. I have learned that nothing ever happens over night, and much of this process requires time and the patience, as well as the dedication and staying power to see it through. Another thing I have learned is to listen to my intuition that gently nudges me when I’m ready to expand and take the next step. So no, I’m not a fan of coincidences or things happening by accident, but I am a fan of reading the signs, of listening to the messages that are always here for us, and I’m a fan of believing that there are no ordinary moments. I can’t tell you how many messages I might have missed already, but I challenge myself to pay attention and keep my perception open so I can recognize these moments. After all nothing is lost as I can’t interpret-ate these moments as missed. How could I not Ebene being aware that it is happening, however it just takes longer to get to where this path is leading me.

Last year one of these moments happened in a life changing way as I came across the powers of energy healing. Most of you have followed my journey and know what a difference it has made in my life and in my health. About two weeks ago, I feel another such moment presented itself to me in the form of making my own natural skincare products and working with, as well as diffusing essential oils. I couldn’t explain the sudden interest until I learned that these oils not only make your house smell amazing, but also pack a bunch of health benefits. I started to do my own research, still not having a clue that I would need to call on what I was learning very quickly. I just followed my intuition, believing there was a reason all this information was falling into my lap.

And then it happened and I had a number of days I just didn’t feel good at all. Some symptoms of which were scary in these current times, but I still remained calm and surrendered my energy, calling upon my guardian angels and guides to help me through this. Further, my left side was hurting a lot which took the attention from corona and indicated an inflamed spleen, courtesy side affect of the rheumatoid arthritis. A day later a migraine headache I couldn’t shake settled in in addition to what was going on already, which kept me woke most of that night. Between the pain in my side, the headache, nausea, and feeling like I was going to pass out, it was simply impossible to drift off to dreamland. Something needed to change and it did the very next morning. This was the perfect time to test my new friends, the essential oils. I made myself a rollerball I call headache away, and low and behold, I noticed a difference as soon as I applied the mixture to my forehead. Within that day in a matter of hours the migraine headache vanished completely, and I haven’t had any problems since. But I went a little further and made myself a immune boosting diffuser mix, placed it in this handy little guy pictured above and allowed it to mist and humidify the air for several hours. The next morning I woke up and for the first time in days I have no ill symptoms, and no pain in my side. I am beyond amazed and already, I am a believer. Coincidence…well, you know my answer.

I can’t wait to explore further remedies and see what this can do for my allergies. Have you had your own experience with essential oils? I would love to hear your take.


We are the co-creators of our life and the time is now. More than ever are we needed to support Mother Earth and each other. Together we discover and explore our unique gifts in times of strengths, in times we lean on each other, and in times when we learn from each other. This blog started as an outlet and what I ultimately called my “Warriors Journey.” It was a way to document the ups and downs of my life, sharing my hardships as well as my successes. It showcased the struggles, but more important the ways of how to overcome them. Although we are warriors each and every day, I realized that having to be a warrior, comes from a place of pain. I decided to rename this blog, and “Phoenix Rising” now stands for the story of overcoming such a painful place. My motivation for this blog hasn’t changed and I hope to share inspiration and hope, to create a sense of belonging, a space of being heard, and connecting with like minded beings who instill a sense of oneness. We are never alone, and we are unstoppable in the pursuit of what sets our soul on fire. Who I am in a nutshell... 
I am an energy healer and Reiki Master. I am surviving a chronic disease that I’ve sent into remission three times since my initial bout, 15 years ago. I continuously challenge the status quo and by doing so I change my stars. I am a believer that anything is possible. I am a hopeless romantic and I believe that true love exists on various levels. I am an optimist that will always see the glass as half full. I am a dreamer, believing in endless possibilities. Not even the sky is the limit. I have jumped off of the hamster wheel, and I am writing a new chapter. I am chasing my Nirvana to support my most authentic self. This is my story, I am that Phoenix and I am rising from the ashes. Namaste 🙏🏼💙🦋

  1. This one is cheating but over here we used to have a company that made a Lemon Myrtle yogurt, and it was to die for. Not many things that I fall in love with but this was ‘the one’.
    Anyway the company stopped making it and I sulked for years over it. But woe and behold I stumbled across a lady who made Essential Oils at a local market and I mentioned my loss. She smiled, walked over to the back of her stall and grabbed a tiny little bottle of, you guessed it, Lemon Myrtle Oil. She said to put only 1 drop (and only one because of its concentration…ok, I’m weak, I put one and a half 😂 ), in a tub of plain yogurt and my wishes will be granted. I raced walked calmly home and applied this miracle and behold, I am alive again.
    Those oils are healthy in more ways than one 😀 ❤️ 🙏🏽 🦋

  4. Stay safe my friend, and take good care of yourself. I’m worried about you, send you love and strength! I’m using essential oils over a candle in my home office, aside from going out in the woods regularly the only way to stay sane these days!


  5. I love essential oils. I don’t think they do more than smell good. Some do help (Myrrh is awesome for mouth sores) and I enjoy them. I’m glad they’ve helped you. The scents are also soothing, which is another benefit. I mix up two. One is my version of Thieves Oil and I added too much of something the last time ad it isn’t as nice. The other is just nice. Not sure what to call it! lol


  6. So glad you have found these oils. I love using them. I love them. I have to be aware of which ones can impact my dogs when I use my infuser especially in winter when the windows are not open as often. The flavours of the edible ones are so strong. Might have to buy some more soon. I do buy from a lavender growing here in Tasmania. I also love the combination of orange and lavender.

    1. Awe that is so wonderful Tazzie and I do love lavender and orange too. I tend to be drawn to citrus smells, but I really love them all and I’m a definite fan. I have made some roller balls for allergies, headaches, stress and pain, and I’m truly blown away.
