Affirmations to Soothe the Soul

Rumi, more formally called Mawlana Jala ad-Din Muhammad Rumi, is one of the
most influential Persian poets of the 13th century. For close to 800 years, his words have inspired, comforted and consoled people of all ages, origins and walks of life.
Beautiful, sonorous poetry has always been a balm for Rumi, who is amongst only a handful of poets throughout history who defy the passage of time and linguistic barriers, and speak to the soul of mankind.

Intuitively pick a number between 1 and 9, and see which affirmation and single oil or blend is choosing you today:

1. This being human is a guest house.
Every morning is a new arrival.
A joy, a depression, a meanness,
some momentary awareness comes as an unexpected visitor...
Welcome and entertain them all. Treat each guest honorably.
The dark thought, the shame, the malice,
meet them at the door laughing, and invite them in.
Be grateful for whoever comes,
because each has been sent as a guide from beyond.
Oil Blend: Gratitude & Present Time

2. Sorrow prepares you for joy.
It shakes the yellow leaves from the bough of your heart,
so that fresh, green leaves can grow in their place.
It pulls up the rotten roots, so that new roots hidden beneath have room to grow.
Whatever sorrow shakes from your heart,
far better things will take their place.
Oil Blend: Joy 

3. Let yourself be silently drawn by the strange pull of what you really love.
It will not lead you astray.
Oil Blend: Live your Passion

4. Do you know what you are? You are a manuscript of a divine letter.
You are a mirror reflecting a noble face. This universe is not outside of you.
Look inside yourself; everything that you want, you already are.
Oil Blend: Believe

5. Give in to grace.
The ocean takes care of each wave 'til it gets to shore.
You need more help than you know.
Oil Blend: Acceptance

6. Maybe you are searching among the branches,
for what only appears in the roots.
Essential Oil: Vetiver

7. Try not to resist the changes that come your way.
Instead let life live through you.
And do not worry that your life is turning upside down.
How do you know that the side you are used to is better than the one to come?
Oil Blend: Transformation

8. Although the road is never ending, take a step and keep walking,
do not look fearfully into the distance...
On this path let the heart be your guide,
for the body is hesitant and full of fear.
Oil Blend: One Heart

9. I am so small I can barely be seen.
How can this great love be inside me?
Look at your eyes. They are small, but they see enormous things.
Oil Blend: Awaken
