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.

Who am I, and why I write. I’m a dreamer, but I’m not the only one. I am the one, holding on to the silver lining when the skies are gray. I’m a believer that nothing is coincidence, but that everything has purpose. I’ve made my mistakes, don’t we all, but I see them as growing pains and they are a part of who I am today. I have lost myself in order to find myself, and I still do from time to time, but in a good way. I’m a big child who laughs until my belly hurts when life wants to be serious. Career wise: I’ve been there, done that, and I took “The jump” off the hamster wheel in an effort to change my future. I didn’t land all that soft, but I can say that I’m still proud to have found the courage to do it. Coming full circle, I had it all, and yet I was lonely and had nothing. Today I choose to be a collector of moments and I chase memories, instead of the material stuff. Less is more, and the motto is quality over quantity. You’d be amazed at how freeing it can be. I see myself as a free spirit that believes in an unconventional lifestyle. Somehow I go against the grain most of the times, not to rebel, but because it feels right to stay true to my unique and authentic self. It takes courage, and you often stand alone, but if you dare, you soon realize that it is the only way if you don’t want to lose who you are. Just like most, my past wasn’t easy and I come from a life that didn’t always give me the opportunity to be heard. Few related and even fewer cared to take the time. But that’s the past and it’s history, the future hasn’t happened and the “NOW” is truly all we ever have. In the end we all have a story to tell, and we all seek to be understood. We all yearn to be heard and accepted and still life is hard and our path is full of stumbling blocks. If we can see the lessons in adversity we may realize that the toughest moments are often our greatest teachers. There is a reason for the saying that the stars can’t shine without darkness, and it might be darkness that will show you the light.
It took a series of (un)fortunate events, to learn to glow through the pain, to learn how to dance in the rain. I believe in Magic and wonder, and the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow. As an empath this old soul often feels a little too much, but I wouldn’t have it any other way.
Today, I am here to tell my story because I believe that it can help others. It is my hope to bring inspiration and strengths to you, while showing you that it can be done. I know you are out there, and I know you are suffering in silence. I am here to tell you that you are not alone, and your voice is being heard loud and clear. Hang on and be strong, transformation is yours. 
In light and love....Rhapsody Bohème 💙🦋

  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 😀 ❤️ 🙏🏽 🦋

  3. 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!

  4. 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
