I'm Irish, and being that it is St. Patrick's day week I was looking for some smart Irish proverb about knowledge and educating when I kept coming back to this popular proverb (not specified): ‘Knowledge is power’ which means that knowledge is more powerful than physical strength and no great work can be done without knowledge.
But why am I writing about this today? I believe that I have made my own luck in life by educating myself; in nursing, crafts, lupus, and now essential oils. I have spent time learning about these things and empowering myself by learning more. I don't believe that you can prosper without knowledge. And really, there is no end to knowledge. There is no limit to what a person can learn. Even by living with lupus, I am still learning new things about the disease. But I have made progress by embracing what knowledge I have and doing something with it. I didn't develop myself and make progress by physical strength, it was by knowledge.
So now I turn that to the aromatherapy world. These are the things I dream about:
-I want each of you to to have the knowledge on essential oils that you can teach others.
-I want you to have the resources you need as "students" of aromatherapy to use your oils to their maximum potential.
-I want to be the aromatherapist that has the knowledge to help figure out what oils will best meet the client's specific needs.
-I want to have the research and knowledge to speak and promote essential oils to everyone, including the non believers.
-I want to be that oil lady you trust because she "knows" her stuff.
When I teach my classes, I like to remind each of you the knowledge is key. It is the key because otherwise you will put that pretty bottle on a shelf in a closet and not look back at it. That makes me sad. I want you to use the oils to their potential to maximize your journey to wellness and abundance. You need to know that resources are in apps, books, Facebook groups, by calling or emailing me. If I don't know the answer, I will find out because by doing that I will learn something more too.
For everyone who asks me how I got these amazing results and turn around in my health, I remind them that I looked and looked some more for answers. I didn't stop learning. Thru that learning I have found joy and purpose. I keep asking questions and expanding my web of resources. Don't be shy. By building up your own knowledge you will find yourself immersed in power when you start learning more. When you are ready to learn more, reach out to me and I will do what I can to guide you to what you need.
