Emotional health is a journey – not a destination.
Whether you’ve just begun healing, you’re continually growing, our you’re living your best life & empowering others… I’m willing to bet:
- You face new challenges.
- You have a difficult relationship to navigate.
- You’ve got a finite amount of money to manage.
- You get up every morning and face uncharted fears, stresses, and problems.
- You have emotional triggers that shake you up.
- You want to feel more peaceful & confident.
- You have tough decisions to make.
Those things don’t stop happening – no matter how much you’ve already been through or how much you’ve grown personally.
But how we’re able to handle life’s ups and downs depends on one hugely important factor:
What we’ve done with our unresolved trauma.
Everyone carries some kind of trauma – some kind of emotional & mental distress caused by a past experience.
Our trauma histories are different – but the way trauma affects our brains is very much the same.
But no matter where we’re at in our emotional health journey, we learn these two things quickly –
1) Emotional triggers and patterns do not magically go away after we survive or understand our trauma.
2) Trauma lives on in our brains and in our bodies – until we resolve the unresolved emotions associated with it.
Like an endless night sky,
like a blanket,
stretches itself out,
every area of our lives.
as the moon.
After we have made it
through the night,
we find ourselves
we run to familiar shadows
under which we can hide,
and somehow believe
we are safe.
Each new day presents hundreds of choices –
to either trust our true selves,
or trust our trauma-selves.
To show up
Like the moon, we either become more whole and bright, or we dim… hiding under our “trauma blanket” and slowly disappearing again.
Many of these choices are made subconsciously, so we unintentionally revert to the trauma self, abandoning our true selves by finding familiar, false security in the negative beliefs that came out of our trauma experience.
I want to share with you about the amazing technique that finally helped me and many other women around the world get connected with our intuition so we could make choices from our truest selves, live healed, and pursue our dreams.
That’s why I’ve poured my heart and soul into creating an incredible, dynamic way for you to experience this technique through our group membership program: Rise & Shine Aroma Freedom for Empowered Women.
The technique we use is AFT (the Aroma Freedom Technique), and you can join our group sessions by getting your essential oils here and choosing your path.
Even for the strongest survivors, mightiest sensitives, & most determined dream-builders, trauma recovery is often multi-layered and can take years to unravel. Repeat-trauma is unfortunately very common – even for those who understand how it works. There are several reasons for this:
- Trauma often begins in early childhood, so coping patterns are deeply-rooted in the subconscious mind.
- We have no healthy pattern to follow. Something in our life has changed for the better, so we assume we have recovered… only to later realize that we are still hiding and coping – just in new ways. Like putting on the same pair of pants in a different color.
- Culture often rationalizes, normalizes, and reinforces trauma.
- We’ve forgotten how to listen to ourselves. After betraying ourselves enough times, it feels too risky to trust our own intuition. We continue to seek out external sources of safety, wisdom, reassurance, love, and acceptance.
The fact is, for survivors, sensitives, & sages alike:
It’s all too common to end up in re-trauma, or resigning to a mindset of allowing our trauma to define us & dictate how we feel and respond to life.
We need BETTER TOOLS to navigate new life.
Here’s the good news for people like us, who have been through hard things:
GOD HAS ALREADY EQUIPPED US WITH TOOLS THAT WORK REALLY, REALLY WELL FOR RECALIBRATING TRAUMA-BRAIN.
God created these tools on the third day in preparation for us.
They are easy to use, and happen to work perfectly with the emotional brain.
They are essential oils.
As we continue to heal, parts of us remain in hiding under a false security blanket of trauma responses. We are like a lunar eclipse… quietly longing for an uncovering… longing to shine… longing to guide ourselves home.
You’ll discover that some of your “emotional blocks” are directly linked to your worst trauma memories.
You’ll find other emotional blocks you buried long ago, totally forgot about, and had no idea were related or holding you back now.
Still other blocks come from recent stressors.
We can use AFT to clear out any residual stronghold – resulting in our freedom to rise and shine!
Most women feel completely different at the end of a session.
- They begin living differently, and with more confidence.
- Their lives feel more aligned with who they really are.
- They feel free again.
- They breathe easier.
- They’re able to think more clearly about their situation and goals.
I’m not saying that all your circumstances will suddenly change… but for most people, a HUGE weight is lifted in each AFT session. They’re able to handle life in a new way and do things they just couldn’t do before.
We need our new beliefs about ourselves to stick, and we need an easy way to clear our unresolved emotions when they come up.
THIS IS WHY GOD CREATED THE PLANTS THAT GIVE US THE OILS.
Imagine yourself standing next to a lake.
You need to get across, but you’re not sure how.
Being the intelligent, spiritual person you are, you say, “If I just think hard enough about this, and understand my problem well enough, God will surely get me across this lake!”
And God says, “Awareness & knowledge are great, but they alone can’t bring you across. So here’s a boat. It’s sitting right there next to you. All you have to do is get in!”
God knows all about the effects of trauma on the body and mind.
God knows we can’t just will ourselves to think and feel in certain ways.
God doesn’t ask us to come to a certain point of great knowledge about trauma before we can be free from it.
Instead, God provides boats – or tools – for us to get a permanent shift, to literally renew our minds, and to take thoughts captive.
AFT is just a boat. But it’s no coincidence that this “boat” is specially designed to transport us to a place of genuine empowerment, freedom, and peace.
As you allow yourself to drift along in this boat, you’ll discover how to love and value yourself in new ways. Trauma runs deep. And overcoming the effects of such deep pain involves more than just head knowledge. It takes finding your inner child, learning how to stay with yourself, learning how to prioritize your own needs, learning how to take care of yourself, and taking your voice back. These are some areas we paddle through in our collective group of customized boats.
No matter which “part of the lake” you’re in – AFT is equally effective.
Maybe you’re in a place where you desire to step into new, healthy beliefs about yourself and your place in the world.
Maybe you’ve been empowered and are helping others.
Maybe you just keep disappointing yourself, spinning your wheels, stumbling over triggers, or struggling with new layers of negative beliefs… new kinds of challenges.
AFT works the same way no matter where you are in the lake –
It finds the faulty wiring and gently, efficiently rewires us.
Whatever your next steps may be, are you ready to tap into your intuition and be empowered with – not just new knowledge – but actual “felt” emotional strength?
We come to a point in our healing & growth where –
if we are going to leave old patterns behind and create new ones that reinforce self-love and self-acceptance… if we are going to sustainably live and respond to life in unfamiliar (but healthy) ways… we are going to need something that can help us pinpoint the memory-emotion link…
and break it.
Maybe, like me, you look back at all you’ve come through and are finally able to feel proud of your brave decisions, gained skills, and a growing confidence. You’re moving forward into your new life – with healthy boundaries, self-approval, courage, and freedom. Maybe you’re even helping others or building something new! This is a wonderful place to be.
But you also know that living empowered ISN’T a destination. You know better by now than to think “I have arrived.” Just like the moon enters into new phases, we enter into new phases of transformation – continually. We inevitably discover even more shadows – more opportunities for growth and healing. Those who have been healing & growing the longest know it the best: There is always more transformation on the horizon.
***That’s why our three paths are not “levels.” They are not a progression. The paths are simply a focus point for whatever season you find yourself in right now, and your AFT sessions will bring you as an individual to whatever blocks YOU need to clear.
Example – when you join Dream Builders, you’ll have the benefit of a community of like-minded business builders who are building their dreams just like you are. Your Dream Builder Path Sessions will be geared toward your dream-building goals.
But your emotional clearings may look completely different from another Dream Builder’s. When we all gather for our full Empowered Women AFT sessions, your AFT experience will uncover and resolve your unique memory complexes – some of which you may never have realized were connected to or affecting your dream-building endeavors.
You can find yourself in a much stronger, safer place… AND continue to uncover areas of wounding, self-abandonment, and negative beliefs. Don’t be surprised when this happens after you feel like you’ve traveled around the world and back in your own healing – even the moon experiences a new revolution every 27 days!
Remember – the “trauma shadows” that seemingly pop up out of nowhere are actually buried, unresolved emotions. They may be tied to memories from long ago, or recent moments, but this buried emotional energy once played an important part in keeping us safe. However, because it has not been resolved on a subconscious level, buried emotions often continue to trigger us, over and over – even after we are safe. This can develop unhealthy patterns that may involve:
- toxic relationship attachments
- financial problems
- parenting struggles
- stuffing emotions
- feeling “stuck” or blocked
- brain fog
- new and old friendships
- family of origin issues
- unexplainable stress
Why I Created A Special Aroma Freedom Group for Christian Women Healing from Emotional Abuse, Highly Sensitive Women, & Women Building Their Dreams
In short: because I know what it’s like to be an empowered woman who still lives in a dark world.
+ I created this AFT group for my mighty sensitive friends.
+ I created this AFT group for my survivor sisters.
+ I created this AFT group for advocates, for coaches, for creators.
1) These are the women I work with individually, and I consistently see them experience wonderful results with AFT.
And 2) I wanted a way for my individual clients to have an easy, affordable way to clear away their shadows & connect with their inner wisdom on a regular basis.
I see what happens in our sessions, and the breakthroughs are often… dare I say it? Miraculous. (I don’t usually use that word, because I know it’s really just biology! But breaking strongholds is powerful stuff, no matter how you look at it.)
I created this membership group because I’ve been in your shoes and I want ALL of us to have the MOST EFFECTIVE transformative brain tool that has been a LIFELINE for me personally and for many, many others.
And when the shadows come… I want us equipped – not just with knowledge – but with a truly transformed mind and heart.
Rise & Shine Aroma Freedom for Empowered Women exists so that we can practice AFT together, in a safe and supported circle of friends, at an affordable cost.
What Rise & Shine Aroma Freedom clients are saying…
Some Important Features of AFT
My dream is that
and all HSPs
and all DREAM-BUILDERS
could have access
to real transformation & empowerment
through our women’s AFT groups,
so that when challenges arise,
we rise higher.
In particular, I’m looking for:
—> Women who have climbed mountains… but still have some mountains in front of them.
—> Women who are coming out of hiding… and long to shine, like the moon, even when it gets dark.
—> Women who are choosing their own healing and growth everyday + influencing others… and don’t want to get distracted or stuck.
You know how the moon is sometimes hidden behind shadows and clouds? When those clouds clear away, and the full beauty of the moon is revealed… it takes your breath away. With AFT, clouds of buried emotions and shadows of unresolved memories are cleared away. The end result is something incredible to behold. Rise & Shine Aroma Freedom for Empowered Women is a safe, supportive place to get reacquainted with your intuition, to freely rise up out of the shadows, and to feel assured by your true self again.
Ready for your next steps?
THERE’S AN EASIER WAY to clear out the dirty basement of your brain that has been programmed for defeat and destruction… because the oils do the dirty work!
Many people say that AFT is gentler and quicker for them than EMDR.
This is due to a more streamlined process, the efficacy of the oils, and their effect on the nervous system.
Others say they made more progress in one session than several years of therapy.
Please know that you don’t have to keep trying so hard to “not think about the pink elephant,” so to speak, or drill verses or mantras into your head to force yourself to think in a new way. (This actually makes things worse.)
God is much gentler with us than that.
God has given us really great TOOLS to take thoughts captive… to literally reset our mind and emotions.
As we go through the process, you’ll effortlessly realize — and release — negative thoughts, feelings, and memories that interfere with reaching your intentions and goals.
You’ll set your emotional energy flowing in a positive direction, toward growth and expansion.
You’ll inhale specific essential oil blends to activate a permanent shift in how you view yourself and the world.

RISE & SHINE AROMA FREEDOM FOR EMPOWERED WOMEN is a membership group for Christian women healing from emotional abuse, highly sensitive women, & women building their dreams.
We desire to courageously advance into our next steps of freedom, growth, and purpose – equipped with two of the most powerfully transformative tools ever designed by God: essential oils, and our own intuition.
Rising into freedom is a journey – not a destination – with new challenges popping up along the way. We recognize that our need for direction, emotional clearing, and breakthrough emerges in each new stage of growth. As new life challenges present themselves, we use the beautifully effective Aroma Freedom Technique to identify strongholds buried within our subconscious mind. We resolve these emotions, and inform our subconscious mind of our new, empowered paradigm.
We are bravely choosing:
…to compassionately love and re-parent our inner child.
…to get to know and accept our authentic, higher self.
…to discover and take steps toward our true design.
…to trust our own intuition.
…to throw off every negative belief that has kept us “stuck” in old patterns so we can keep shining like the moon – even when it gets dark.
…to pursue emotionally-safe, mutually-edifying relationships.
…to uplift, encourage, and support each other in our various healing experiences.
…to validate one another as we grow more fully into our identity.
…to support & encourage each other toward building our dreams.
We begin AFT sessions with an intention, such as “I love and accept every part of myself” or “I am focused and productive in my work.” You can use the group intention or something more personal and specific to your situation. We use the Aroma Freedom Technique (AFT) to identify, reprocess, and release each negative thought, feeling, and memory that interferes with reaching our desired intention. This gentle yet powerful practice sets our emotional energy flowing in a positive direction, toward growth and expansion.
AFT is an effective step-by-step process that brings profound, personal breakthrough. We use specific essential oils and blends that work directly with the limbic brain to eliminate the emotional charge associated with distressing triggers held within the subconscious mind. This activates a permanent shift in how we view ourselves and the world.
I am a Certified AFT Practitioner and lead this group through two full AFT sessions each month. Replays are available.

So, what are you doing in the near future to “Rise and Shine”? Right now… what goal is on your mind… but seems unreachable? Let’s set your intention and get started!
You have a choice to make. You can carry on as usual. Afraid. Alone. Misunderstood. Burdened with pain. Consumed by guilt or anxious thoughts. Stuck of frozen, unable to accomplish your goals.
Or, you can choose to bravely invest in yourself, conquer your emotional obstacles once and for all — and give yourself the freedom to REACH. THAT. GOAL.
You are on purpose, Brave One. Rise and shine!

Do I have to share what I'm going through?
No. During AFT sessions, we briefly share feelings & thoughts that come up throughout the session, which is helpful and supportive in a group setting because we realize we are not alone in our challenges. But we stay in our own process throughout AFT.
You only share as much as you feel comfortable. You can do what feels best for you, and you’re never required to share anything. What is shared in the group stays in the group.
Are sessions recorded so I can watch later if I miss one?
Path Sessions are NOT recorded at this time.
Empowered Women AFT Group Sessions ARE recorded, so if you miss, you can always go through the fully guided AFT session with the recording later.
