Last Monday, as I was lying in bed trying to sleep, I was overcome by this huge and powerful energy that lit up all of my cells. It was like being connected deeply to a circuit of Universal Energy. I was completely lit up with golden light and energy from four points around my body, with this light streaming directly into my heart. I felt waves of energy travel the entire length of my body and into my Energy Field.
I recognized the energy around me in a tetrahedron shape, a structure that I have drawn and connected to for many years. It seemed to carry such meaning for me, though I was never sure why. I would draw this shape and mark on it the different ways that I share my gifts with the world, one aspect of my work for each of the three sides and my overall purpose at the top. It helped me to keep things in perspective and to stay focused. It’s a structure I kept coming back to.
That night, as the light poured into my body, I saw that each of these four points on the tetrahedron represented one of my Guides. The Angelic Beings that I have felt around me my whole life and who I recognized and call by names they have given me. They were pouring this higher energy into me, strengthening me and affirming that the path I am on is bringing me closer to what I came here to do.
It was such strong confirmation for me of the new path I am on. I am doing something I never (like never in a million years!) thought that I would be doing!
For over 11 years I have worked in my own business as a Holistic Nutritionist, Energy Healer, Teacher, Trainer, and Angel Therapist. I have trained with some amazing health practitioners, worked with well-known supplement companies, and taught hundreds of practitioners in the “mainstream” and not so mainstream realm of health and wellness.
Now, at the STRONG and UNMISTAKEABLE urging of my guides (and the plant spirits in my yard), I have joined an MLM (multilevel marketing company) that sells essential oils.
It’s been several weeks of self-doubt, questioning, highs and lows, and generally learning to get over myself and dig into what the deeper message is here.
What I can tell you is that I am feeling an excitement and energy that I can’t explain. There is a feeling of freedom and empowerment that I didn’t expect. And I feel connected to my guides and the plant spirits in a deeper way than I ever have before (I didn’t think this was possible!). My connection is so much stronger to the plant kingdom than it was even yesterday. Whatever that energy outpouring was last night, I feel different today.
What I am realizing is that there is a big shift happening in the health field as well as in the realm of personal wealth and finance. We are learning to take our power back and break down the structures that have defined us for years.[clickToTweet tweet=”There is a big shift happening field of #health and realm of personal #wealth and finance. ” quote=”There is a big shift happening in the health field as well as in the realm of personal wealth and finance. “]
It’s now possible for people to educate themselves and be able to support others in a safe and effective way using natural medicines. We have access to products and information that we didn’t have before.
And this will trigger a lot of people. It triggered me. As someone with 5 years of university training plus another decade of continuing education as a health practitioner, it really pissed me off that anyone could come in and sell health products with less education and experience than me. How dare they?
For years I criticized the MLM model as sketchy and phony and as a “get-rich-quick-scheme.” I had so many people come into my office trying to peddle their products to me wanting me to “build under them” for this great product – aka they wanted to leverage my client list and skills to do all the work while they thought they could sit back and collect money. NO WAY!
Over the last few weeks I had to break those beliefs. I had to really look at myself and the way the world is changing; at the transitions that we are in energetically and collectively as humans.
doTERRA gets a LOT of criticism. And when I dug deeper, like REALLY dug, I realized why. It’s not because they are a bad company. It’s not because they have a bad product. It’s the opposite. They are a company with a ton of integrity, with an amazing product, with people who care, and Wellness Advocates who really want to support and empower others.
They do a lot of charitable work and want to help empower women (and men) to become debt-free. Their structure is unlike any other MLM… it’s like the Infinity Loop energy of giving and receiving that I teach in my energy classes. “when I succeed, you succeed, when you succeed, I succeed.” The team structures are such that it is to the benefit of all that we help each other out. They have turned the traditional MLM compensation model on it’s head, so that mentorships and teamwork is valued and required for success.
And this is a threat. It threatens the very structures of what our lives are build on. Financial freedom that can come much more easily than from the daily grind? Being able to work joyfully and on our own terms, sharing what we love? EMPOWERING people to take their own health in their hands? NOT ALLOWED.
Even those of us who say we want this (like me) are often triggered by this. We get angry. It breaks the status quo. It’s confusing.
And of course it will be subject to criticisms that come from the OLD MLM model. Where it was sell-sell-sell. Where the bottom line was the almighty dollar. Where there was often no support, little training, and “recruitment” was valued above all. But times have changed, and we must be willing to update our perceptions.[clickToTweet tweet=”Times have changed, and we must be willing to update our perceptions. #newbusinessmodel” quote=”Times have changed, and we must be willing to update our perceptions. “]
Of course, there will be people in doTERRA who are trying to build their business following the “old” model. There will be people making unfounded claims about health benefits (which are NOT supported by head office). But that’s not truly the doTERRA culture. And I ask you to please remember that there are all types of people in every profession. Don’t let one (or two, or three) bad examples taint your view of what is. Look for yourself. Ask questions. Research.
I have had a lot of old beliefs surface that I have had to overcome. I have really dug deep and re-examined my perceptions of the world. And I see a different path, a different way.
And that was NOT expected, NOT my intention. Yet a cosmic brick thrown at my head shook everything up and led me down this path.
Since I joined as a Wellness Advocate, I have received countless signs that I was on the right path. My work with Angels and flower and gemstone essences has amplified. It has ADDED to what I already do, not distracted from it. My feelings of joy and freedom have grown exponentially. I have found leadership and mentorship and mindset training from doTERRA that outweighs what I have experienced from coaches that I paid thousands of dollars to work with.
I felt compelled to share this today. To share my truth, my experience, and my surprising path forward. Scary? Yes. Controversial? To some. Rewarding? For sure.
My path is my own. And I wanted to share truthfully and honestly with you.
The plants are calling. The Angels are calling. And it’s time for me to share with others as well.
