My Top 10 Essential Oils For Magical Travel

Do you find yourself drawn to travel?  Do you have a case of wanderlust? 

The Gold Coast, Peru, Bali, Italy, Hawaii… Australia…. the women of our Feminine Magic® community are of the world, and are called to see the world! 

So here’s a shocker… (not!) … I’m no different.

I’ve been traveling to attend retreats, conferences and ceremonies for years. I’ve hosted retreats up and down the beautiful West Coast.  And just this year we traveled as a family to Maine, I’ve ventured solo to Belfast, Ireland twice, to California 3 times and I’m off to my longtime former home, New York City, in just a couple of weeks. 

(I was also due to go to Necker Island to hang with Richard Branson, but due to the

hurricanes, our trip got postponed. Please hold the people of the British Virgin Islands in your heart; they’re in pretty bad shape down there. xoxoxoxox) 

Travel is a powerful catalyst for transformation for successful, ambitious women.  It gets you out of your home frequency, and stretches your mind. 

It creates an environment like no other to shift who you’re BE-ing and uplevel your desired energetic state in a visceral way.   

And whether you’re traveling for pleasure, a retreat, spiritual growth, a mastermind or training, travel is a natural way to raise your frequency…and essential oils are the perfect magical travel companion.  

Why?  

Because they offer a similar effect— an instant and dramatic change in state that heightens and grounds your travel experiences.   

They also have a whole host of wellness benefits that can’t be beat while traveling.  Fatigue, headaches, dealing with germ-central environments like airports, jet lag, exposure to foreign (to you) bacteria. 

AND… 

Of course you can use them in your manifesting rituals along the way! 

If you’re looking for a few simple rituals to take on the road, I offered up 3 manifesting with essential oil rituals last week.  

Check out: My Manifesting Secret Weapon

There are a few more essential oil based rituals for receiving over here.

Finally (and most exciting to share!!), I’ll be offering up even more travel-friendly manifesting  practices and rituals over in my new private Facebook group, Essential Oil Magic. So join us! 🙂 

 

Here are the 10 essential oils that I always take with me for magical travel and why… 

1. Frankincense is the POWERHOUSE of magical oils. It known as “God in a bottle” and  is regarded as a strong spiritual conduit to God (and Goddess) with an overall masculine energy. It really can be used for anything but it’s my quick go-to for deepening my connection to Essence and embodying the energy of peace and relaxation. I also reach for ‘Frank’ for purification and to enhance the overall energy of my magical work. You can also apply this to the bottom of your feet to balance moods and maintain overall wellness while on the road.

TIP: If you’re looking for a strong feminine counterpart, grab Myrrh! 😉  

2. Lemon is great for detoxing and can be used for both literal and spiritual cleansing. One of the simplest essential oil practices is using lemon in your water like I do daily. When I’m traveling I’m able to skip the sugary, flavored drinks in most restaurants by jazzing up my water with a few drops of lemon instead. It’s like a mini flush for your entire system that also opens and uplifts the spirit.  

 3. Lavender is one of the most popular essential oils for good reason. It possesses calming and intuitive properties and imbues the energy of happiness, peace, comfort, and companionship. Use a few drops of lavender to help you relax and get some shut eye on those long flights and before morning meditation.  

4. OnGuard (a doTERRA® blend) always makes the packing list because its proprietary blend strengthens the immune system (perfect for airports and germ-y airplanes), and it’s also ideal for protection and establishing boundaries which is often needed when venturing to new environments with unfamiliar people. OnGuard contains clove, a strong cleansing oil for your physical body and spirit. I take this one internally while on the road and at home and often add a few drops to  fractionated coconut oil or my hotel hand soap to make an easy hand sanitizer.  

5. Peppermint essential oil creates lightness of spirit – something we all need while on the road.  It also cuts brain fog and stimulates alertness, making it perfect for jet lag. Peppermint can also be used to freshen breath, soothe an upset tummy, and support the respiratory system. I love to pop a drop in my mouth and inhale deeply, letting my heart and mind lift gently before I head out for the adventures of the day. 

6. Breathe (a doTERRA® blend) clears the air. I keep it on hand to keep the sniffles at bay if I do feel a cold or allergies setting it. This blend contains Ravensara leaf, another oil that is known for its  protecting, cleansing, and healing properties. (If you’re noticing a trend here it’s because transformation requires a whole lot of letting go and releasing).  

7. Melaleuca, also known as “tea tree” oil comes with me for clearing, cosmetics and cuts. It’s perfect to dab on blemishes (who else has skin that freaks out when traveling?) or minor cuts and hang nails to keep them clean until I can apply a bandaid. I also use to clear any negative energies in new or unfamiliar spaces. A few drops in a spray bottle with water works… or you can travel with your diffuser like I do sometimes. Melaleuca is also a decongestant, clearing energy blocks or body toxins you want to release. 

8. Wild Orange is the oil of abundance. That pretty much says it all. We travel to expand and to open our eyes to the abundant nature of our world. This is one of my all time favorites at home too. I drink it daily (in water, like lemon) and to use it aromatically to literally breathe in abundance.  I put Wild Orange in everything!  Rub a drop or 2 of wild orange with equal parts peppermint and frankincense in your palms and then inhale deeply for energizing boost of creativity and inspiration. 🙂  

9. Forgive (a doTERRA® blend) helps release the weight of guilt, doubt, anger…basically any low frequency energy that keeps you from moving forward. I have this one in a rollerball for fast application and will anoint my wrists or heart chakra when a something presents to be forgiven. Like the “mom guilt” that sometimes creeps in when you’re on the road missing your loves at home, but know it’s for a greater good.  

10. Purify (a doTERRA® blend) is also a powerful oil for clearing and cleansing. Again, use this oil in a spray bottle or diffuser to clear yourself of any negative energies, old thought patterns or emotions that no longer serve. And to combat odors (stuffy hotel rooms) and germs. Just add a few drops to a cotton ball and stick it in the air vents of cars or small rooms.  

And because I couldn’t actually stop at 10, here are two bonus oils for you. 

11. Motivate (a doTERRA® blend) will cleanse negative emotions like guilt or pessimism and replace them with feelings of confidence, courage, and belief. When traveling, I bring this one, usually in a rollerball, to help me embrace new experiences. Perfect for moving through fears to cross items off your bucket list. You can also anoint your temples for focus and the back of the neck for confidence before speaking.  

12. Passion (a doTERRA® blend) helps you consciously create the highly magnetic energy of passion. I love it for business retreats to help you rekindle feelings of excitement about your work and to reconnect to your vision. Place few drops in your bath water or on hand towel placed (carefully) on the shower floor will set you up powerfully for a day of creative brainstorming or strategy.  

So those are my personal favorites to take on the road.   

But remember, you won’t get the benefits if you just toss them into your luggage or overnight bag and call it a day! 

To use oils effectively for magical travel, you’ll have to be a little more intentional.  

Instead, pack some easy manifesting rituals and a simple protocol that’s hand-selected for your journey.  You don’t have to do a ton research to set yourself up because I’ve got you covered.  

Check out the articles linked earlier in this article, and if you’re ready to up your manifesting game – even while on the road! – check out my latest 14-day manifesting journey, Manifesting With Essential Oils. 

You’ll learn all about how to use essential oils to stabilize your emotions, and a LIVE 14-day guided journeyto become a vibrational match to the success you want, with the help of essential oils.

3 Manifesting Habits You Must Master To Create Money On Command

There’s nothing like the rush of manifesting your first big income breakthrough.

Manifesting cash windfalls of $10K, $30K, $50K or more when YOU choose is an experience like no other!

AND once the dust settles… you’re going to desire more.

Is it wrong or selfish to want this?

No way!!

Money is a physical manifestation of expansion.  It E-X-P-A-N-D-S the options available to you and empowers you to move through life exactly as you Desire.

And speaking of Desire… we are all born with the Desire for more.

So… you Desire more. You claim it as yours. You decide you’re going to go for it…

You’re GOING to manifest a new, bolder money goal…

And sometimes that’s where you find yourself stuck because the way you manifested that first or second or even third money goal, doesn’t always work when you decide to double or triple the amount you’re after.

You see, manifesting your next cash lump sum isn’t likely going to happen the exact same way as it did last time, especially when you set your sights on bigger (more triggering!) numbers.

The good news is, while the “how” might be different each time, there are 3 manifesting habits that pretty well guarantee your ability to create money on command if you take the time to master them:

Habit #1: Strengthen your decision-making muscle

Rapid manifestation – especially when it comes to money – requires decision-making.

You’ve got to be willing to make decisions and move forward.

I’m not talking about deciding what you want. That’s a given.

You’ve actually got to master the art of decision making and to be willing to make decisions based solely on your intuitive guidance. Working from the ether instead of logic and asking to be shown the right next step.

Call this person.  Create this program.  Charge X amount.

Easier said than done right?

I get it.

Most people are so used to researching every single knob-twiddle, hoping to know ahead of time how it’s all going to play out.

But overthinking just gets in the way of making decisions.  Wanting to know “how” just keeps you in the gap of not having it (i.e. anxiety and resistance).

Instead, get comfortable being in the mystery (that space between where you are and where you want to be) and receiving information from outside your rational mind.

The beautiful thing about making decisions is that you really can’t get it wrong!

Even amidst what feels like a “bad” decision you’re sure to receive new information that will allow you to course correct along the way.

Remember… everything you want is already here.  So every decision you makewith the pure intention of receiving your goal has no choice but to be a potential pathway leading you closer to said goal.

Bottom line?  Get comfortable making decisions quickly.

Habit #2: Let go with lightening speed

But what happens if you’ve been making decisions at a pretty rapid pace and the money still isn’t showing up? What then?

The ONLY cause of non-miracles is… (drumroll)… resistance.

In other words, you’re holding on to something that needs letting go of.

If the money (or anything you’re manifesting) hasn’t shown up yet, there is SOMETHING you’re still attached to and that attachment is blocking you from receiving it.

Letting go is pretty black and white.

You’re either resisting or you’re allowing. To allow you’ve got to let go (of whatever needs letting go of) and step in to the BE-ing (thoughts, feelings, energy, emotions and actions) of the one who has it.

So what do you need to let go of?

With money in particular, it’s two things:

  • Old habits and beliefs, some of which are unconscious
  • Resistance to the aligned actions you need to take to call in the money

This is where some of the well meaning, “feel good” manifestation teachings out there can really lead you astray.

They falsely leave you believing that resistance is a red flag and that your best bet is to choose what “feels better” and that isn’t always so.

Or, they have you focus on the “negative beliefs” holding you back.  What does that do?  Keep you stuck in the belief!

Want to know a better way to shift your programming?  Create a new experience.  (In other words, create the result.)

When you see the resistance to aligned action for what it is, space is created for you to let go.  The more you do it, the easier it gets.  Which brings me to habit number 3…

Habit 3: Take action, even if it doesn’t feel good

One of biggest reasons people struggle with manifesting bigger and bigger money goals, even when they’ve done it successfully before, is that they’re not willing to take the NEW action they’re being guided to.

One of the simplest and most common examples for business owners is *drum roll please*… picking up the phone.

If you’ve been in my world for any time at all you’ve probably heard me say: “Money comes from the Divine, through other people.”

Meaning, the money you’re trying to call in isn’t going to fall into your lap while you’re hanging out in meditation.

Money moves by ONE thing only, and that’s SALES.

This is why I often challenge my business coaching clients especially to pull on their big girl panties and start picking up the phone when they want to call in a lot of money fast.

This prescribed course of aligned action is almost always met with mega resistance.

“Holy crap, Elizabeth! Can’t I just send an email instead?”

“Who would I call anyway?”

“But this isn’t how I do things in my business.”

“OMG what will people think of me?”

I totally get it.

Reaching out is triggering for most people.  It was for me at one point too.

BUT receiving large amounts of money almost always involves taking action on the things you don’t want to do.  It’s about BECOMING the version of yourself who is willing to take bold, often uncomfortable, action as you’re guided in order to create space for the Universe to deliver exactly what you want.

Think of it like visiting the gym regularly in pursuit of a more toned body…

Until it becomes a habit, most people don’t want to go to the gym.

It feels like hell when you’re requiring your body to go past the limits of what you *think* you can do.  It would be so much easier to cozy up in your jammies for an extra hour. Eventually, though, the endorphin rush becomes addictive and in a fairly short time you see results that make the discomfort totally worthwhile.

But nothing happens until you get off your couch and head to your spinning class or yoga class or whatever it is.

Whether manifesting a strong body or your boldest money goals, aligned action is what actually brings the result in.

Speaking of action, let me sneak in one more bonus habit for you.  Because I love you like that 😉

Bonus habit: Set your business up so you never have to create money on command 

Mastering the habits I’ve shared here will make manifesting money an easy to repeat process for you.  AND…

.. despite the glamor of it, really isn’t a great long term strategy.

Manifesting money works… but wouldn’t you rather know with certainty that your bold money goal will be flowing to you, month in and month out?

If that’s true (and if you’re reading this I’m pretty dang certain it is), you want to master the habits of creating money on command WHILE setting up your business as a proper money channel. One that generates the money you desire on autopilot without constantly having to focus on your time, energy and resources on manifesting big windfalls.

What does it take to do this?

First, a willingness to stop looking at your business as it is today as the ONLY way for you to create money.

Then you’ve got to learn the structures you need in place so that simple, low effort actions (like sending out an email) will generate a steady flow of money in return.

And you have to do these things while staying committed to strengthening those habits of decision-making, letting go and taking action.

********

There you have it,  3 habits to help you manifest money on command and one juicy bonus to get you started on the path towards having abundant, consistent income as an effortless new normal.

You might be surprised at how “simple” these habits seem but making money (and a lot of it) is not rocket science.

Let me know in the comments… Are you willing to let it be easy?

 

My Top 10 Money Rituals

Over the last few weeks, I’ve shared several of my best practices and teachings for upleveling your money mindset and increasing your income. We covered some powerful coaching questions to help you create a money leap, and then I shared my top money beliefs to reach your goals.

So far, so good. But want to know the real secret to manifestation?

Aligned action.

How you show up with money has everything to do with how much you make and keep. Your habits create your reality. So this week I’m happy to share ten of my favorite money rituals.

Why “money rituals”?

As a priestess, of course I’m big on rituals. I love the intentional action, the connection to Divine and, of course, the magic that results. There is no more powerful way to shift one’s consciousness than through intentional ritual.

I say “intentional” very, well, intentionally, because while we all have rituals (habits is another word for them), most of them are unconscious.   Especially around money.

The bills paid late – or never opened. The purchases made on autopilot.   The unawareness around current balances. For women especially, unconsciousness around money masks feelings of unworthiness, deep shame and more.

And how does all that money neglect show up in the outer world?   As with any relationship, your relationship with money needs attention in order to thrive.   Money not attended to will NOT stick around!

When the money drama starts, most women think that the solution is to just make more money. But until you start giving money loving, conscious attention, any money you make will right out the door again.

The solution? Money Rituals: simple, intentional, habitual actions to bring you out of unconsciousness and into a loving, supportive relationship with your money.

Here are my top Money Rituals that can powerfully impact the flow of money in your life, through consistent, deliberate and loving attention.

These are simple enough for anyone to start right away; however, if you want more advanced money rituals that place you into the realm of thinking and acting like a profitable business owner, I highly recommend the book Profit First by Mike Michalowicz – it’s a game-changer!

  1. Track all of the money that comes in.  (Daily) – The guideline here is that it all counts. Whether it’s your spouse’s income, a gift, a surprise savings on something, it’s ALL money coming into your life and needs to be included.
  2. Track all of your expenses. (Daily) – You need to know what’s going out, and this can also help you spot patterns that you may decide you want to shift.
  3. File your bills (Daily) – Don’t leave them lying around! This creates money clutter, which blocks the flow and space through which money can come in.
  4. Pay yourself first (Weekly) – This is mission critical, even if it’s just a small amount to start. Decide on an amount and frequency, whether it’s weekly or biweekly, that you can meet consistently and just do it!
  5. Review your bills (Weekly) Before you pay, make sure they’re correct.
  6. Review bank balances and credit card balances (Weekly)
  7. Pay your bills (Twice a Month) – Many women feel dread around this.  Instead, I invite you to make a ritual out of it. Bless the money, bless the service/experience/value/items that you received in exchange for your money, and most of all, allow yourself to feel gratitude that it’s in your life.
  8. Balance your checking accounts (Monthly)
  9. Check in with taxes (Monthly) – Keep a current estimate of your income to determine if you need to set money aside.
  10. Check in on your Lifestyle Money Goal, or set a new goal (Monthly) – How much money do you need to be bringing in to support your essential needs and allow you to enjoy the life you desire? Set money goals and hold yourself accountable to them through aligned action.

These actions can feel extremely uncomfortable at first – usually because there is some shame underneath. Be courageous and stick with these practices. They will get easier over time, and you’ll be amazed at what a difference these simple actions make in the amount of money you’ll make, keep and enjoy in your life.

At the end of the day, your relationship with money is really a reflection of your relationship with yourself. And that always deserves loving attention.

 

 

20+ Ways To Make An Extra $10k Before The Year Ends (Or Any Other Time!)

One of the most common questions I hear from our clients this time of year is, “Is December a good month to launch my program, or are people all checked out for the holidays?”

The answer: Contrary to what you might think, the holidays are the perfect time to activate new business.  Here’s why:

  • Money is flowing.   This is the busiest shopping season of the year, which means you’re part of a conversation that isalready happening.  If people are buying presents for others, it’s only a short leap for them to invest in themselves, too.
  • New year, new beginnings.  Your most high-achieving clients will be thinking about lining up coaches, mentors and teachers (like you!) to support their success in the new year.

All this means that you have the opportunity to make December one of your best income months of the year, while being of service in the highest way.

So how will YOU create an income breakthrough in December?  Make a clear decision on the amount of money you wish to make, then decide the “how” using these proven ideas as a starting point:

  1. Make a juicy Breakthrough Session offer to your list (limit the time to apply and number of spots available)
  1. Pre-sell a teleseminar course, homestudy program or group VIP day and include a 30-minute Breakthrough session with you (perfect for making a high-end offer)
  1. Have a holiday sale of any homestudy courses, past teleseminars or recordings you have  (hint: include trainings “hiding on your hard drive” – not currently available on your site – and make them available for that sale only)
  1. Open up just 1-2 spots for high-end private mentoring/coaching with you (6 months or 12 months)
  1. Create and offer a quick 30-60 day program, to start at the beginning of the year (include a special bonus session or ½ 1-Day intensive as a bonus for clients who sign up early)
  1. Make an offer for limited 1-Day intensive spots, focused on a specific topic that solves a pressing problem for your peeps
  1. Offer a 1-Day intensive workshop, either in person or virtual (again, focused on a specific pressing problem)
  1. Reach out to past teleseminar, group or workshop clients and offer a 1-Day intensive or shorter program
  1. Raise your fees!
  1. Go to all of your clients on payment plans and give them a special bonus or savings for bringing their accounts current
  1. Collect all unpaid money still owed to you by past clients
  1. Offer a juicy bonus for clients who pay in full (versus payments)
  1. Partner with a colleague who offers a complimentary service; offer a free Breakthrough Session to all of their current or past clients (a well-known mentor followed this strategy to launch her business with no list and no website; she was booked 2.5 months in advance selling dozens of her $2k program)
  1. Offer a ½ day training for a small group, paid now and delivered in the new year
  1. Let your current clients know you’re opening spots for 1-3 new clients and ask for referrals (you’d love to serve clients just like them)
  1. Invite friends, colleagues and clients to your home or office for an intimate 1-day event and make a private Platinum offer (one of my clients created a 5-figure payday by implementing this strategy)
  1. Call past and current clients to present an additional service, such as a 1-Day intensive or ½ day group workshop
  1. Call past and current clients and make a “first dibs” offer on your latest program or teleseminar course
  1. Call at least 5 of your colleagues or mastermind partners and let them know you’re accepting referrals
  1. Host a teleseminar right after Christmas and before New Year’s (when things have slowed down, peeps are just chilling and getting caught up – they’re paying attention!); offer Breakthrough sessions or a new program
  1. Follow up with all potential client inquiries from the past 90 days and offer your latest program
  1. Follow up with everyone you’ve met at an event or networking meeting in the past 90 days; make them an offer or ask for a referral

Remember, the best time to get new clients is when YOU want. While there are natural ebbs and flows in the calendar year, the perfect time to launch a program, product or service is when YOU decide, not what you think the calendar dictates.

Making the decision to hold off on your launch because you think “it’s slow right now” or “people aren’t buying” is a great way to give up your power or hold yourself back based on misleading or “grapevine” information.

Fact is, when you make a firm decision to create a certain amount of income, the money is always there.

So, as you were reading that list, which one of those jumped out at you as a really cool idea to implement?  My coach’s request is for you to take action on it NOW, instead of waiting.  You can do this!

The Only “Manifestation Superpower” You Really Need (And Already Have)

Had to share one of my new favorite pictures of my two greatest loves…

I love this shot because Brigit is radiating her Essence and her name, which is the name of the Goddess and means bright arrow.

Plus, the look on Leland’s face is priceless.  😉

Speaking of Leland, here’s a story that perfectly captures his Essence, his massive contributions to Goddess Business School® AND a manifestation lesson for you.

My physical space – my environment – is a BIG deal.  I love, love, love beautiful spaces and mine MUST support my frequency.  (Translation: I do a lot of space clearing.  😉 )

The irony here is that… creating that living space is really tough for me.  I’m definitely NOT an interior designer… and I literally CANNOT SEE how to set up a physical space.

(Energetic space, as in ritual?  No problem.  But physical space, as in rooms?  My brain goes all static.)

So this becomes a great way to deny myself one of my greatest pleasures.   When I’m in withholding mode, this is where it shows up.

We have a beautiful room in our house that I’ve wanted to transform into a sanctuary where we can gather together and where I can sink into “temple time” after a long day.

So our good friend & GBS client Linda Bard of YourCreativeVoice.com came over because she does have the design thing going on.  We planned the space.  We even shopped for a new sectional sofa!

Two months later, no sofa.  Because “life gets in the way,” don’t you know.

One night this week after a full day of coaching, I mentioned offhand to Leland (let’s not call it complaining 😉 ) that I wished that space was done already.

Two hours later – in the middle of the night, no less –  it was.

Well, okay, not DONE-done.  But done in a way I never could have imagined that made the whole thing POP.  And will definitely serve as Mama’s sanctuary with the current couch until we get that sofa ordered!

So WHY am I telling you this?

Because I’m sure there are Desires in YOUR life that you’ve been waiting on for two months, two years or more… that you can easily have in two hours… when you ask.

Leland is a professional illustrator.  His whole world is visual creativity.  The man knows how to set up a space.  I could have had my new temple space two months ago… if I’d just ASKED him for help.

What a glorious reminder of magical principles!

To my amazing husband, I say, thank you, my love, for walking this path with me and helping me deepen into all things magical.  (This is just one of a zillion such stories I could share.)

To YOU, my question is… where are you denying or withholding your Desire because you haven’t asked?

Remember, Universal Law teaches that everything we Desire is already here.  What you want comes from the Divine and through other people.

What would it take to ask for help?

What would it take to ask for exactly what you Desire… and know that you can have it?

If you don’t ask, you don’t get.  Also, you get what you ask for.  Every time.

This week, my coach’s challenge to you is to ASK at least 10 times.  At least 10.  Because it’s only in the asking – and always in the asking – that we receive.

Here’s to your asking… 🙂
