Affirmations for Emotional & Spiritual Independence

Who were you before the world told you who to be?

Untamed, by Glennon Doyle, explores the joy and peace we discover when we stop striving to meet the expectations of the world, and instead dare to listen to and trust in the voice deep inside us.

Intuitively choose a number between 1 and 9, and see which inspirational saying and Young Living essential oil is choosing you today.

1. Here is the world. Beautiful and terrible things will happen. Don’t be afraid.
Oil Blend: Valor

2. Every time you’re given a choice between disappointing someone else and
disappointing yourself, your duty is to disappoint that someone else. Your job,
throughout your life, is to disappoint as many people as it
takes to avoid disappointing yourself.
Oil Blend: Harmony

3. Pain is not tragic. Pain is magic. Suffering is tragic.
Suffering is what happens when we avoid pain and
consequently miss our own becoming.
Oil Blend: SARA

4. You are here to decide if your life, relationships and world are true and beautiful
enough for you. And if they are not and you dare to admit they are not, you
must decide if you have the guts, the right - perhaps even the duty - to
burn to the ground that which is not true and beautiful
enough and get started building what is.
Oil Blend: Transformation


5. If this is our shared human experience, where did we get the idea
that there is some other, better, more perfect, unbroken way to be human?
Where is the human being who is functioning “correctly,” against whom we are

all judging our performances? Who is she? Where is she?
What is her life if it is not these things?
Oil Blend: Acceptance

6. When a woman finally learns that pleasing the world is impossible,
she becomes free to learn how to please herself.

Oil Blend: Sensation

7. This way of life requires living in integrity: ensuring that your inner self and
outer self are integrated. Integrity means having only one self. Dividing into
two selves—the shown self and the hidden self—that is brokenness. So do
whatever it takes to stay whole. Do not adjust yourself to please the
world. Be who you are, and let the world adjust to you.

Oil Blend: Awaken

8. If you are uncomfortable—in deep pain, angry, yearning, confused—you don’t
have a problem, you have a life. Being human is not hard because you’re
doing it wrong, it’s hard because you’re doing it right.
Oil Blend: Common Sense

9. This life is mine alone. So I have stopped asking
people for directions to places they’ve never been.
Oil Blend: Surrender
