Living a Life of Freedom

The cave you fear to enter holds the treasure you seek.

                                                                                Joseph Campbell

This quote by Joseph Campbell echoes the popular saying that “the thing you want is outside your comfort zone”

In short living a life of freedom is outside your comfort zone and can only be attained by facing the fear and moving forward in spite of the fear.

In this blog we would explore what fear is and how to deal with it and what faith is , and grow our faith to live the life we want .

Fear is one of the strongest motivators; it can push us into wrong actions or freeze us into inaction.

Fear can have a powerful effect on our thinking, decisions and actions.

Fear is a natural emotion every one deals with multiple times in their life.

A healthy fear can keep us from harm. But too often fear keeps us from doing what we want –or need –to do.

We have a choice on how we are going to deal with that fear.

Most of us have heard the acronym for fear

 F = false E= evidence A = appearing R=real.

We have to think of this acronym, whenever we are feeling the fear of going forward to accomplish something we desire: because we have the ability to accomplish anything we want in our lives.

Most negative emotions can be converted into something positive to help us get further in life.

We can actually take our feelings of fear and use them to help us go forward.

When fear shows up instead of letting it take over our lives we can convert it to an emotion called faith.

On the opposite end of the emotion of fear is the emotion of faith . . . so we can turn our fear into faith.

Faith is complete trust or confidence in someone or something.

I was once told a story that illustrates the topic of this blog.

A young lady had a lovely voice but had a fear of singing in public, she was asked to sing in the school choir but she repeatedly refused, after a few talks with the choir director she eventually joined and she excelled , just as the choir director knew she would .

Her next challenge was a regional competition for the school choirs in that region to which her school was invited to compete.

Her choir director wanted her to sing two solo songs and one duet, she did not want to let the choir director and the choir down and she liked the idea of singing solo and singing a duet but she was afraid and so she refused.

She could manage to sing in the choir hidden amongst the many choir members but she could not come out in front and sing with the choir backing her.

Her choir director tried to hide her disappointment and told her that her declarations can either build faith or invite fear.

She told her to repeat declarations at least 3 times a day for 21 days saying declarations such as

I will not bow down to fear.

I will not let fear stop me from living a large life.

I daily step out of my comfort zone so that I can live a large life.

The choir director asked her to come back after 21 days and whatever her answer is regarding the regional competition the choir director would accept.

After 21 days the young lady returned and told the choir director she would sing the solo and duet, the choir director smiled and told her to continue with the declarations for the 9 months until the regional choir competition and beyond as fear does not go you have to keep confronting it.

At the competition a well known artist manager was one of the Judges, he was also looking out for new talent and he thought he might find the person at the competition.

He was impressed with the young lady and decided to sign her up.

He first created online social media platforms for her and managed and monitored them so as to increase her online presence and attract new fans.

Her fan base and public exposure was constantly increasing.

As at the time I was told the story he had discovered a band looking for new talent and she had joined the band as the lead singer.

Now her life has taken a new direction and she is living a large life beyond her imagination and enjoying every second and there is more to come.

Unfortunately fear can never be eliminated from our lives but it can be conquered by you confronting it at every step.

Harvest The Good

Every adversity, every failure, every heartbreak, carries with it the seed of an equal or greater benefit.

                                                                      Napoleon Hill

This quote from Napoleon Hill the author of the classic book Think and Grow Rich is firmly based on the Law of Polarity.

The Law of Polarity

This law states that everything has an opposite.

There is an opposition in all things.

We appreciate light in the darkness , joy in the sorrow , and companionship in solitude , solid –liquid , hot-cold , up-down , sad-glad , good-bad , outside-inside .

You can’t have up without down, left without right.

Likewise you can’t have a question without an answer existing somewhere in the universe.

You can’t have a burning desire for something without a way to achieve it.

When we make a decision to live by the law of polarity and to always view all circumstances, conditions and situations with the law of polarity at the fore front of our mind then when adversity, failure, heartbreak or any circumstance, condition or situation that is not our preference appears in our life we immediately start to look for the seed of equal or greater benefit.

Like most habits . . . and that is what it is . . . it is the habit of looking at any event  that takes place in your life that is not your preference with the thought that says “there must be something good in this situation . . .  I am going to calm down and look for the good”

This is a habit that would take time to take root . . . we would start by reacting like we used to do and then after some weeks we would remember that we should look for the good . . .  this would gradually become days then hours and then one day you would realise that what you used to allow to bother you , does not bother you any more . . . immediately a situation you don’t prefer appears in your life you say to yourself “ it is what it is . . . I am going to look for the good “

Let us go back to the word allow . . . we are the ones that allow circumstances to bother us . . . circumstances are neither positive nor negative it is our thinking that makes it positive or negative.

Some time ago I heard a story that illustrates the idea I am trying to convey.

The woman in the story came home and her husband told her he had lost his job.

She immediately went into panic mode, this situation was especially worse because her husband was the sole bread winner she was studying and looking after the children.

Fortunately a week before this happened she had gone to a seminar in which the speaker had said something similar to the idea I am trying to convey . . .  that is . . .  there is good in every situation.

She therefore did not react like she normally would have and instead she and her husband put their thinking cap on.

They then realised that this was an opportunity for her husband to find a job closer to home . . .  the old job was a long commute that he did not like.

 He decided he would like a job close to home so that he can cycle to work . . .  and he also thought that he would like a job close to home and better pay.

Because these positive thoughts were the dominating thoughts on their minds and they did not allow thoughts of panic to rule them . . .  that is exactly what they attracted . . . we attract our dominating thoughts good or bad. . .  I would write about the law of attraction in another blog.

The next day he came back home and told his wife he had found a job that was near home and he could cycle to work and it was more pay.

Wow!  That is a nice success story

Thoughts Become Things

Any Idea that is held in the mind that is either feared or revered will begin at once to clothe itself in the most convenient and appropriate forms available.

                                                                                Andrew Carnegie

This quote from Andrew Carnegie lets us know that our thoughts take physical form and become things. .

This is not referring to random, weird thoughts that float into our minds every now and again; this is referring to thoughts that we constantly think about, that is our dominating thoughts.

Earl Nightingale who is also known as the Dean of personal development said in one of his recordings that one point all philosophers agree on is that we literally become what we think about , they disagree on other points.

Now since our thoughts are very important and the dominating ones become reality and thus have a great impact on the quality of our lives we should take a few minutes to talk about our thoughts.

The first thing we should note is that we should not think about what we don’t want to see in our lives.

We should not let our imagination go there this is difficult because our imagination wants to go to the “What If “ land  , especially if we are surrounded by people who also dwell on the negative or we take in a lot of negative news from the media .

With disciplined thinking we can keep our mind off the negative and on what we want.

When you start employing disciplined thinking it has to be done deliberately and aggressively.

You start by monitoring your thoughts – there are two stages of thoughts affecting your actions.

1. When the thought is in your mind.

2 When the thought is affecting your emotions and feelings.

Negative thoughts produce negative feelings.

Positive thoughts produce positive feelings.

 Initially you might only be able to catch negative thoughts when it is at the second stage that is when it is actually affecting your emotions and feelings, but gradually with practice you would be able to identify a negative thought immediately it comes to your mind and switch to a positive thought.

This is where the deliberate aggressive action is called for , instead of getting involved in negative ideas or suggestions whether conceived by you or accepted from outside (friends , media) you would need to write out a list of things you want to see happen in your life.

Once you notice the negative thought either at the first or second stage immediately go to your list and start reading it, you would soon know your list off heart that you can switch thoughts immediately and insert the opposite positive thought.

A few methods I can suggest for switching thoughts from negative to positive are

  1. Literally say the word switch either out loud if you are alone or in your mind if you are in public.
  2. You can also say stop it either out loud if you are alone or in your mind if you are in public.
  3.  You can snap your fingers, signalling to yourself that you should change to positive thoughts.

You can use any of these methods or any you think about, the most important point is that you change from negative thoughts to positive thoughts as soon as possible.

Soy Wax Candle Aromatherapy

Essential Oils

Aromatherapy use oils from plants & trees

An excellent and enjoyable way benefiting from the healing properties of Essential Oils is through the use of Aromatherapy Candles.

The art of Aromatherapy uses Essential Oils. These are extracted from roots, bark, leaves, stems, flowers, and other parts of plants and trees. It is a holistic therapy which can be used to promote physical, mental and spiritual health, including pain relief and mood enhancement.

Essential oils contain the active ingredients of a plant in a highly concentrated and potent form; normally this needs to be diluted prior to use.

Aromatherapy forms part of a holistic healing regime which involves searching for the root causes of an illness rather than just its symptoms. It works by awakening and stimulating the body’s innate ability to heal itself, leading back to a healthy state of balance.

Hippocrates, the Father of Medicine, claimed that “the way to health is to have an aromatic bath and a scented massage every day

Soy Candles with Essential Oils – clean and long lasting

The perfect carrier for Essential Oils is a candle based on Soy Wax. These do not produce toxins when burnt and leave the air clean whilst delivering the therapeutic effects of the scented Essential Oils.

The best candles use pure Essential Oils, high quality 100% Soy Wax candles and cotton wicks. Soy Wax candles also burn slowly which means the benefits last much longer!

Soy Candles: Healthy Lifestyle Choice

100% Soy Candles

Enjoy clean, fragrant, healthy Soy Wax Candles

Pure Soy Candles are healthy, environmentally friendly and long lasting delivering the ultimate candle burning experience. Let me explain why in more detail.

The Healthy Candle

Soy Wax Candles do not produce toxins when burnt. Whereas traditional Paraffin wax candles produce a whole range of pollutants when burnt including acetaldehyde, formaldehyde, toluene, benzene, acrolein and soot. According to American research by their Environmental Protection Agency, burning several candles exceeded the EPA’s standards and posed an increased risk for cancer.

The Environmentally Friendly Candle

Do you want to only buy natural products which are sustainable, renewable and environmentally friendly? Soy Wax Candles are made from soya beans and so much kinder to the environment than traditional paraffin wax which is a petroleum by-product created from the sludge waste when crude oil is refined into gasoline.

The Long Lasting Candle

Soy Wax Candles burn at a cooler temperature than paraffin wax candles which also means that Soy Wax Candles last longer – in fact between 30 – 50% longer.

Pure Soy Wax versus Wax Blends

To get the full benefits of Soy Wax Candles, you need to buy those made with 100% Soy Wax rather than the cheaper mixed wax versions. You might not know but a candle made with as little as 40% Soy Wax and mixed with other waxes, like toxic Paraffin wax, can still be called a Soy Wax Candle!

So make sure you only buy 100% Soy Wax Candles!

Soy candles by Sentelle are made from 100% high quality soy wax so with Sentelle you can be assured you are getting all the benefits and none of the drawbacks while enjoying the special ambience created by candles.

Disappointed with short-lasting fragrances when burning candles?

Are you constantly disappointed with a candle smelling gorgeous in the shop but then shortly after lighting it at home the fragrance disappears? The solution is again, Soy wax candles!

Soy wax does not have a smell of its own and so forms the ideal “blank base” for fragrances. This means that when a Soy candle is lit the only scent is that from the fragrances and the scent is as strong when burning the end of the candle as it did at the start.

Pure Soy candles, or a mix of waxes?

A candle made with as little as 40% soy wax mixed with other waxes, for example palm wax or polluting paraffin wax, can still be called Soy Wax Candle! Unfortunately, these mixed waxes do not exhibit all the benefits associated with Soy Wax and instead actually including the disadvantages associated with other inferior waxes. If you want the best qualities, you need a 100% Soy wax candle.

This is why all Sentelle Soy candles are made from 100% high quality Soy wax so you can be enjoying excellent soot-free scented candles. Choose your Sentelle Soy candles from our extensive range which includes the fun Butt Naked (with tropical fruits), Aromatherapy Essential Oils and even Unscented candles.

Benefits Galore From A Soy Candle

soy pillars and soy jars

Why would you buy a Soy Wax candle? Well, have you been looking for clean burning candles that do not stain walls and home interiors? What about a healthy candle that do not produce toxins when lit? Then your search can end now! Switch from your usual candles to one which is natural and eco-friendly – a Soy Wax candle!

Soy is the new wonder ingredient for candles – so what’s the secret of soy?

Aromatherapy scents

A Soy Candle makes the best carrier for essential oils, and so are the best Aromatherapy candles to buy. This is because they do not have negative effects such as they do not release toxins or soot thus you are left to enjoy the therapeutic effects of the essential oil.  By comparison, Paraffin wax candles release soot as well as 11 toxins, two of which are carcinogenic.  As a consequence, combining Paraffin wax candles with essential oils is a bit of a contradiction, with the toxic effects of Paraffin wax negating the therapeutic benefits of the Essential Oils.

Safer candles

It is a little known fact that Paraffin wax burns at a higher temperature than Soy Wax.  The fact that Soy Wax burns so much cooler means that if you accidentally spill wax from your Soy Candle on your hands, you won’t suffer from redness or blistering.  A Soy Candle is, therefore, the safest type of candles to burn in homes, especially those with children in them.

Cleaner candles

Unlike the Paraffin wax, Soy Wax is water soluble.  More good news for families with children or pets! If curious little fingers tip wax onto your favourite tablecloth, Soy Wax can easily be washed out using just soap and water.

To view our range of Soy Wax Candles, click here and spoil yourself with high quality 100% Soy Wax candles in a wide variety of scents including Aromatherapy Essential Oils.

Soy Wax Candles: toxin free luxury!

Soy Wax Candles are the healthy & environmentally friendly option

Soy – the new wonder ingredient for candles

Switching your usual candles for natural, Soy Wax Candles will increase your enjoyment of candles immeasurably. Do you love scented candles but hate black soot that stains your walls and interiors? Are you annoyed by expensive candles that burn very fast and lose their scent so quickly? Then Soy Wax Candles are the answer!

So what’s the secret of Soy Wax?

Soy Wax Candles are clean burning, so by choosing them you can say goodbye to the black soot you get on walls and furniture when you burn candles made from Paraffin wax, and say hello to clean air. It is not only soot that Paraffin wax gives off when burnt, but also a number of carcinogens which are hazardous to your health.

Scents don’t last very long?

Unlike Paraffin based wax candles where most scents are lost after an hour, Soy Wax candles have a “wonderful scent throw”. This means the fragrance fills your room with a strong and lasting scent, even after blowing the candle out.

Candles burn too quickly?

Did you know that a scented Soy Wax Candle lasts up to 50% longer than one with a petroleum base, as Paraffin which burns much faster?  So, by opting for Soy based candles, you can enjoy the sensual pleasures of candlelight and fragrance for so much longer.

Want to be eco-friendly?

If you love the environment as well as candles, then Soy Wax Candles can combine two of your passions. Made from hydrogenated soybean oil which is extracted from soya beans, this is a natural, renewable and biodegradable source making them the eco-friendly choice. Once finished, any remaining wax bio-degrades so is a thoroughly ‘green’ substance!
