So many times when trying to shed those extra pounds, we truly do wish we got a little better number on the scale.  Though getting feel "weightless" is not as easy as holding a few balloons to get a lighter number!  Even if you are sticking to a eating plan religiously, you will have hic cups along the way, and even abandon your good intentions because your mind is not in the right frame of thinking.

Why does your mind need to change it's way of thinking to succeed in a new eating plan?

Here are ten mindset shifts that will help you have success.

In all circumstances regarding changing your thoughts, Essential Oils are going to be your friend.

Try this exercise to change your mood, or thought, in under a minute.

1.  Identify what's the problem, and describe the situation.

2. Choose one feeling word to describe how you feel about the situation.

3.  Where in your body that that feeling live?

4. If a Neutral or Positive situation, go to Step 5. If it's a negative situation, listen for what the negative voice says about that feeling or situation.

What did it say?

5.  Take one drop of Lavender, Stress Away, and Frankincense in the palm of your hand and rub clockwise.  Breathe the oils into the situation you're picturing and into the feeling, and the sensation.  Observe what happens.

6. After a few moments of breathing into the oils, and when you are feeling more relaxed, go within and listen for what your Higher Voice/God/Holy Spirit has to say about this situation now.  What did it say?

Write any new ideas you have received on a post-it note or a journal and place it somewhere you will see it.
