In contrast to the dominant paradigm that dictates a mechanical, 'take this for that' literal approach to health (that often separates mind/body, too), Lady of the Lotus recommends using intuition when determining the right match for you. Logic may say you 'should use an oil for digestion', for example, but your intuition says that working with something that expands consciousness is the way to go.
Perhaps your digestion is affected by holding yourself at a standstill in life, preventing your own growth due to certain other factors in your life? If this were the case, then a meditation or consciousness expanding blend would be a great fit. Or maybe you are 'dealing with' a particular body issue. What is the pressing issue? Is it this health issue, or is it the strained emotional relationship you have with someone close to you? Perhaps a blend that simply nurtures you, would give you the most support and healing at this time. rather than continually honing in on a micro problem, you give it a little space and address your whole self, emotional nourishment and loving self-care.
Perhaps you are frustrated in your current job. You know you need something for 'stress relief', but your intuition suggests a sleep support tea, body oil or aromatherapy spray. Deep, restful sleep goes a long way towards establishing resilience of mind and body, and puts you in a frame of mind to notice new possibilities and discover potentials you hadn't previously. And opening yourself up to dreaming insights while sleeping, is a second level of assistance. Or, you may have ample experience with spiritual and etheric realms, and be in need of grounding. In this case, self care massage is grounding, connecting you with senses through aroma, touch and embodiment in the present moment. Herbal tea is a ritual that offers sacred connection to the spirit, while directly supporting the body's health.
In another example, many activists today are constantly outside of themselves, either in the head/rational mind, or through emotional extension towards other, often abstract ideas/ideals or events and circumstances that take on a life of their own. In order to provide effect change and care for others, love and care for the self must be included. A healthy body is essential ; and maintaining sovereignty in mind/emotion, allows one to stay true to their own unique path. This allows creative activists and artists the ability to cultivate innovative and unique contributions, even as they may veer from the group or consensus flow from time to time. Ways of intuiting in this context may include flower essences for creativity, herbal body oils for dreaming and aromatherapy for spirit renewal, grounding and perspective.
Intuition gives you an opening to make this kind of connection between your life and your approach to self-care. Looking at the layers helps you to determine the approach that will give you the most mileage, the most 'bang for your buck', at a given time. We extend Lady of the Lotus Botanicals as a means to serve and assist you in making great changes and choices that are in alignment with you, supporting your success in life.
