Natural Solutions with Essential Oils for Healthy, Empowered Living

Paula Stout Spiritual/Energy Practitioner, doTERRA Wellness Consultant

What are essential oils? Essential oils are natural, aromatic compounds found in the seeds, bark, stems, roots, flowers, and other parts of plants. They can be both beautifully and powerfully fragrant. If you ever have enjoyed the gift of a rose, a walk by a field of lavender or the smell of freshly cut mint, you have experienced the aromatic qualities of essential oils. They can lift the mood, calm the senses, and elicit powerful emotional responses. Yet the use of essential oils goes well beyond the fragrant appeal.

Essential oils have been used throughout history in many cultures for their medicinal and therapeutic benefits. Modern trends toward more holistic approaches to self-care and growing scientific validation of alternative health practices are driving a rediscovery of the profound health benefits of essential oils. Many have powerful cleansing properties. Their unique chemical structure allows them to pass directly through the skin for immediate systemic response to topical application. Certain oils may be used as dietary aids to promote vitality and wellbeing.

Today, scientists, physicians, researchers, and many individuals concerned with managing their own personal health are beginning to explore and discover some of the amazing benefits pure, therapeutic grade essential oils have to offer. If you would like to learn about how Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade essential oils help support the immune system, alleviate muscle tension and discomfort, support a healthy digestive system, and MUCH MUCH more, please contact me for a free personal essential oil wellness consult.


Angels & Crystals

I thought this month I would write about angels and one of the many ways to communicate with them.

Because once you learn how to connect with your angels, you will use this wonderful connection to allow beauty and gratitude to enter your life. Working with angels, spiritual realm and guides can change our lives in the blink of an eye to an amazing journey, feeling a greater level of gratitude for all that you have been given. All you need to do is ask for it.

Many of the crystals that aid you with connecting with angels are also powerful stones to move your spiritual growth to a higher level. Certain stones and crystals can be of great assistance in establishing angelic contact. Working with these ‘angel stones’, highly spiritual stones, which possess metaphysical properties that can aid one in connecting with angels, spirit guides, and the Higher Self raises one’s conscious awareness by raising the frequency of one’s physical self to come in tune with one’s non-physical Higher Self. The higher one’s consciousness is raised, the easier it becomes to establish communication with those residing at higher planes of consciousness, such as angels, guardians, and spirit guides.

Remember when seeking contact with an angel, one should do so with a feeling of gratitude. Because gratitude has a powerful vibration, and expressing gratitude before even having received anything, it may help us facilitate establishing angelic contact, and open communication that will encourage a faster and stronger response to your questions and requests.

So here are three to start you off and I will add more in the coming months. Enjoy !

Celebration of Life for a Beloved Grief Counselor Jan Arsenault

Jan Arsenault

On March 21st 2016 our beloved friend, counselor, teacher, colleague and mentor was taken from us too soon in a tragic single vehicle car accident.

A Celebration of Life gathering is scheduled for Sunday, May 22nd from 1-3pm at Nippo Lake Golf Club, 88 Stage Road in Barrington, NH where Jan had been married many years before. For those who would like to, there will be an opportunity to share thoughts, memories and stories of Jan. Our dear one’s favorite colors were Purple and Blue so guests are encouraged to dress casually and sport these colors in honor of Jan’s kind and loving spirit. Refreshments will be provided and bar service will be available. All are welcome to attend.


Spring Cleaning

Paula Stout Spiritual/Energy Practitioner, doTERRA Wellness Consultant

Spring is in the air bringing with it inspiration to freshen up our homes, office spaces, etc. Doesn’t it feel good when everything is clean and fresh, and you have space for something new? Well, the same concept applies to our energy. Energy needs to move and requires space to move into.

To create space for new energy we have to let some things go.

– Self-judgment and self-criticism take up a lot of our energetic space. Releasing ourselves from the burden of our judgments creates space for new energy.

– Judgment and criticism of others fills our energetic space with our expectations, judgments and criticisms leaving no room for new energy.

– Anger and resentment create an enormous energetic space blocking the flow of new energy.

– When we are not in the present moment and are living in the past or the future, we have filled our energetic space with what we believe is possible or will happen, and left no room for miracles or other potentials.

What energy can you move out of your life during this time of spring cleaning? When old energy is allowed to move, our energetic space is able to be filled by something more fulfilling, like joy and peace.

We don’t let go of things we have failed at or not done properly. We let go of things when we decide that we are ready for, want and deserve something else! What do you think you deserve right now?


Loss of a Beloved Journey to Wellness Practitioner

Jan Arsenault

Janice J. Arsenault

June 20, 1959 – March 21, 2016

Certified Counselor
NH Namaste Center for Loss, Hope and Healing


The following are some heartfelt thoughts and words from the Journey to Wellness Practitioners as we reflect on the loss of our good friend and colleague, Jan Arsenault.

We lost a beautiful lady this week who even in her passing left us an abundance of lessons if we choose to look beyond our tears.

Her gift was always be open to learning, explore every avenue but above all give hugs and smiles to all of those special people and know everyone has a story to tell if we choose to listen. Live life to the fullest.

This lady left a legacy of how life should be lived by all of us and a knowing in our hearts that we will see her again.

Carol J Hutchins

I’m still reeling from Jan’s untimely death….Often, we would be the only practitioners in on Fridays, we always shared a hug, a recap of the week and what was going on with us, the world, etc. She was a ray of light always and she will be greatly missed…my Friday friend.   Knowing she is overseeing us now, please keep us in your light.

Be well and cherish every moment,

I always looked forward to seeing Jan’s door opened knowing that a smile, hug and pleasant conversation were waiting inside her peaceful office. She was a treasured friend and colleague whom I will miss dearly. Rest in peace Jan.

      Angel Messenger

In this most amazing time of being able to bring our dreams to fruition if we are willing to do the work and stay strong I would like to introduce you to Archangel Barakiel the Angel of Good Fortune, Prosperity and Abundance.

When people are able to shift their attitudes from expecting the worst to expecting the best, Archangel Barachiel may be in the background helping shift things around for the best in our lives.

Archangel Barachiel (who is also often called Barakiel) is also known as the angel of blessings. He works to announce and deliver God’s blessings to all people when it is needed.

Archangel Barachiel also leads the guardian angels, who work more closely with human beings than any other angels. So if you are seeking a solution to a problem you may want to call on him to bring things to a good conclusion.
Finding yourself having a fit of giggles is another sign he may be about. Laughter is a great way to break the tension when nothing seems to go right.

Need a more tangible sign? Archangel Barachiel will sometimes shower us with rose petals to signal his presence in your life, since rose petals symbolize God’s blessings showering down from heaven into people’s lives. Lightning is an ancient symbol of the power and speed of thought and inspiration, and just like a bolt of cosmic electricity, Archangel Barachiel can take your needs, desires, and prayers out into the Universe to manifest into reality very quickly.

Looking for that special teacher? His influence extends beyond the immaterial, so if you’re struggling to find a teacher, guru, or guide in the material world, Archangel Barachiel can help steer you to the one that is best suited to you.
Last but not least, if you are having trouble in a relationship with some one this angel can help everyone resolve the issues and bring in love and light to the situation.

To call on this the Angel you can use the crystals Angelite, Unakite, Sunstone, and Seraphinite with a dash of the color green.

Enjoy !

New Year’s Resolutions

Paula Stout Spiritual/Energy Practitioner

Paula Stout Spiritual/Energy Practitioner

It’s that time of year when we are invited to change our lives by making “New Year’s Resolutions”. Sometimes they work out, and unfortunately sometimes they don’t.  I invite you, this year, to consider changing your “goals” for the New Year into “intentions”.  An “intention” is not about something you have to do, rather it is a feeling you generate within. Here are some examples of what I mean.  If you want more money, first decide what you would do with it (i.e., new car, house, travel, etc.) and then set an intention of experiencing the feeling of having that.  If you want to have a mate in your life, set the intention of being loved, appreciated and accepted, and experience that feeling.  If you want to lose weight, set the intention of falling in love with your body as it is (this is one of the most powerful ways for the body to let go of extra weight), and experience the feeling of truly loving yourself.  Etc., etc.

Also, to empower your intentions, include being grateful for what you do have. Holding the intention for gratitude, always attracts more. (It’s a Universal Law – The Law of Attraction)

Happy and Blessed New Year.
