The great day protocol was created by Gary Young, and oh.... if you haven't made it a daily practice for yourself-- you are in for a life changing treat!
Have your Valor, Harmony, Joy, and White Angelica essential oil blends readily available. Keep these in a place where they will easily be seen so that you're able to practice daily.
Apply a few drops in the palm of your left hand, gently rub your palms together, and bring your oiled palms to your nose and inhale. Set your intention for the day, utilizing the grounding properties of this blend.
Next, put some Valor on the back of your neck and then place another drop on the inside of your wrists and hold your wrist together for a moment. As you hold the pulse points of your wrists together, again breathe in the oil blend and take a moment to be still while affirming your intentions for the day. What state of being would you like to cultivate? What do you want to accomplish today?
Place a drop of Harmony on your left palm, rub your palms together, inhaling the oil blend and place some Harmony on your solar plexus, just below your sternum, and above your belly button. As you inhale the aroma, consider speaking words of affirmations such as, "Give me eyes to see harmony in everything I do and see today." You may have a specific intention for harmonizing with your customers, your co-workers, family, friends, etc.
This blend is one of Young Living’s signature essential oils. Originally to be named "Love". Place a drop of Joy into your left palm, rub your hands together, and slowly inhale the scent. Then place your hands on your heart. The Bible reminds us, (Proverbs 4:23) Above all, guard the affections of your heart, for they affect all that you are. (TPT)
Putting this oil on our heart is a deliberate way to focus, connect, and position your heart.
4) WHITE ANGELICA
We often refer to this oil as Psalm 91 in a bottle. This blend is known for its properties for it's properties of protection, like a bouncer for negative energy or disturbing thoughts. Place a drop of White Angelica in your left palm, rub your palms together and deeply inhale. Then gently brush your palms over the crown of your head, down your neck, shoulders, chest, torso, and all the way down your legs to your feet. Imagine this blend encasing your entire body, like a guardian shield. Again, revisit your intention for your day.
Start using the Great Day Protocol daily for just one week. Keep a journal of your feelings and accomplishments each day so that you can look back and see how you have changed throughout each of the days.
Why should you be diffusing in your home?
Diffusing is not just a smell good activity. It is first in line for our motto "real tools with side benefits"
It’s something we can do in our homes to replace toxic fragrance products with scents with healthy giving benefits. There are incredible aromatic benefits you can receive simply from diffusing pure essential oils. Aromatic usage allows you to inhale essential oils.
Young Living diffusers are ultrasonic. The fancy little silver plate in the bottom of your diffuser vibrates the water and oils within the diffuser distributing the oils in the air for you to breathe in. The frequency of the oil is maintained for maximum benefit for you, while there is no heat, which can destroy the therapeutic properties of the essential oils.
So, what exactly are the benefits?
-Aids in your overall wellness by helping keep you above the wellness line. Different oils help boost your body systems keeping you healthy.
-Getting rid of odors without spraying chemicals in the air that can cause health and respiratory issues. Many of the sprays that are odor eliminating contain harsh toxins that can linger in the air for up to two weeks. If you struggle with any respiratory issues, this will continue to build up within your system causing issues. Switch out to diffusing some Purification or Citrus Fresh!
-Lifting your emotions through the benefit of entering the portion of your brain that is only accessed through smell. The limbic region is where memories and emotions are stored. Emotional health is just as important to us as physical, mental, and spiritual health.
Utilizing our essential oils to keep our moods lifted, helps to steer us from negative thought patterns, allowing us to live life with a more vibrant outlook. Try Joy, Orange, Bergamot, Valor, White Angelica, or Harmony.
-Sound sleep. Diffusing while sleeping is a great way to support your entire body system and to help relax and calm your body for a better sleep experience. Try Lavender, Peace & Calming, Sacred Mountain, or Cedarwood.
-Energy & Motivation. On the flip side of relaxing and sleep, sometimes you need a boost to “get things done”. Some oils are great at uplifting the spirit to tackle the things you need to do for the day. Try diffusing Gathering, Peppermint and Lemon, Clarity, or Motivation.
-Creating an atmosphere. This is one side benefit I love! Just a few drops, and the whole room changes. It will affect everyone in the room. Get the diffuser in place with intention before people are coming and going from your home. We frequently have comments made when people enter our home. People can feel the difference.
Whether it is for meditation, peace, or simply a smell good, feel good intention---there are hundreds of options.
A few favorites for gatherings are: Stress Away with Peppermint (aka chocolate mint), Gathering, Abundance, Believe, or Sacred Mountain.
Diffusing is an easy way to be using your essential oils in your home. Keep that amazing machine going 24/7 when you are home and in your bedrooms during the night to continue reaping consistent benefits. Start them up about 30 minutes before bed, and you are set up for results.
Sometimes I think back... how did we do life before Young Living?
