Characteristics of the Heart Centered Entrepreneur

By Susie Beiler

Many business owners wonder if it is possible to run a successful business from the heart. Not only is it possible, it is the best way to build your reputation and your business. In my view a successful entrepreneur embodies the following characteristics.

1. HCE’s (heart centered entrepreneurs) are in tune with their own heart and what they want. What they offer in their business is an outflow of what is already in their hearts. They could be a plumber, a dog-walker, or a massage therapist. The key is that they are doing what they love.
2. HCE’s value themselves first. They value their time, energy, and resources and set up healthy boundaries to communicate this to customers. They teach their customers how they would like to be treated by how they treat themselves and their customers. Instead of doing things to put up an appearance of being nice, they are nice to themselves first and can then do business in true integrity. In this way being nice to others is easy because they are 100% in alignment with themselves and their actions are a reflection of this fact.
3. HCE’s know what they are worth. Truly, there is a time when compassion guides an entrepreneur to give the person on a limited income a break in the fee. As a rule, however, they charge a fair price for the value of what they provide. Just as important, their heart is open to receive the payments in the amount of the price they are charging.
4. HCE’s know when to “let it go”. Sometimes clients ask too much or want to get more than what they are paying for. An HCE listens to the request with compassion and healthy nonattachment and determines whether they are the right person to provide the requested service. Even if there are no new customers in the pipeline, the savvy HCE trusts that in letting go of the difficult client, new and better ones arrive on time.
5. HCE’s reward committed clients. A devoted client deserves the best. HCE’s give everything they have to give and trust in the ripple effect… they are impacting more than just one person when they have a satisfied client. HCE’s know that word of mouth is the most effective form of attracting clients that are a good match for them.
6. HCE’s know they are here to serve. Again, regardless of the profession, an HCE is in business to provide a service that is a demonstration of their life purpose. In this vein, HCE’s care more about the customer than making money from that customer. HCE’s know how to balance the need to make money with the desire to meet the customer’s needs and their own needs.

It has been my experience that there is a universal support system that is created around the Heart Centered Entrepreneur. When the HCE is truly in business for the right reasons, they always have what they need. An open heart is in the graceful flow of giving and receiving with trust and gratitude.

Thieves Essential Oil Blend

Thieves is not just for winter use, Thieves is the perfect product to keep you protected whether you're traveling, shopping, at school, or at home.

Young Living's Thieves essential oil blend was created based on the legendary account of four thieves in France who protected themselves from the Black Plague with cloves, cinnamon, rosemary, and other aromatics while robbing victims of the killer disease. When captured, they were offered a lighter sentence in exchange for their secret recipe.

Thieves contains Young Living Therapeutic Grade™ clove, cinnamon bark, rosemary, lemon, and Eucalyptus radiata essential oils specifically blended to offer the same natural defense experienced by those four thieves. This oil blend harnesses the immune-enhancing properties of clove and germ-fighting elements of Eucalyptus radiata, and has been university tested and found to be effective against airborne bacteria. You can diffuse it, apply it topically, or ingest Thieves as a dietary supplement to experience the health-enhancing benefits.

Information from the Young Living website

Personally I love the Thieves cleaner to clean my kitchen sink and my bathroom. I don't have to worry about chemicals AND it smells great all while killing the "nasties" that lurk in dark moist places! I even use it to clean out my turtle tank.

Essential Oils~ More than Aromatherapy

Often when people hear that I work with essential oils they think of something that just smells nice. True essential oils are a lot more than a pretty smell. If you use 100% pure, therapeutic grade essential oils that were grown, harvested, and distilled in the optimum conditions, you benefit from the plant’s medicinal properties. Because essential oils are the lifeblood of a plant, they carry a healing frequency that benefits mind, body, and spirit.

Peppermint, in my opinion, is an all purpose oil that you should have whether you are at home, in your car, traveling across country, or at the spa. Peppermint can be used in your everyday life in so many ways.
1. Put a few drops of peppermint oil into a spray bottle with a few ounces of water. Spray it into the air to kill airborne bacteria or just to refresh the air. Use this same bottle to spray your houseplants to deter bugs.
2. Take a drop internally to provide relief from congestion and enhance your digestion. Peppermint is well known for aiding in the relief of heartburn, flatulence, constipation, diarrhea, stomach ulcers, stomach cramps, nausea, hiccups, and generalized indigestion. *Note: Peppermint is safe to take internally with the brand I use, Young LivingTM Essential Oils. Some brands are not.
3. Peppermint is an excellent oil to use when you need pain relief. It aids your body in decreasing inflammation and soothing sore, tired, or stiff muscles and joints.
4. Rub a drop on your abdomen if you suffer from menstrual cramps. Use a hot water bottle or warm compress to enhance the effects of peppermint.
5. Regain your energy and enhance mental clarity by breathing deeply from the bottle or rub a drop in between your hands and place your hands in front of your nose while you breathe in.
6. Stir a drop into chocolate or vanilla ice cream. Better yet, make a green smoothie and blend in a drop of peppermint. Add a drop to your water for an afternoon pick-me-up!

A few words of caution: If you are pregnant, please consult your doctor. While 100% pure therapeutic grade essential oils are extremely safe and will not interact with medications in a negative way as some herbs can, they are highly powerful. If this is your first experience with the oils, please start out slowly. Essential oils oxygenate your cells and cause your body to release toxic material. It is rare, but people that are full of toxins sometimes experience symptoms of detoxification such as vomiting, diarrhea, sweating, and/or feeling like they have a cold or flu. If you are obese, a heavy drinker of alcohol, taking a lot of medication, or eating a lot of processed sugar and refined foods, essential oils can be a powerful tool in your healing process. However, you may be more susceptible to experiencing a sudden cleanse when you first begin to use the oils.

Using essential oils in the Kitchen

When I tell people that I use essential oils in recipes, I get a somewhat confused yet curious look. If you want to enhance your digestion AND impart deep flavor to your food, I suggest the following:

~Add a drop of essential oil to your salad dressing. Lemon, dill, tangerine, tarragon, ginger and orange are all good choices.
~Stir a drop of peppermint in your vanilla or chocolate ice cream.
~Oregano, Marjoram, Thyme, Rosemary, and/or Basil are wonderful additions to a bowl of soup.
~All the citrus oils (orange, grapefruit, lemon, tangerine, and a blend called Citrus Fresh) perk up your water AND aid in weight loss as they provide a gentle yet very effective detox for your cells!
~Flavor up your brownies with peppermint, cinnamon, or nutmeg.
~Make a fruit smoothie or sorbet with the citrus oils. www.greenfeet.com has some great recipes.

I hope this gives you some inspirational ideas. If you have some of your own, please feel free to add them in the comment section!

Remember that these medicinal quality oils will lose some of their healing properties when heated. Whenever possible, add the oils after you have heated up your meal.

I use only 100% pure therapeutic grade essential oils from Young Living. Other oils may contain perfumes, fillers, or may have been processed with solvents. Order your oils from http://susie.younglivingworld.com

What is Ghee?

Ghee is prepared by melting and simmering butter until all the water evaporates and the milk solids settle at the bottom. The clarified butter is then carefully removed from the top and strained to get pure ghee. Ghee has been used in Indian cooking for thousands of years. Ghee is very healing for your digestive and nervous systems. It is clarified butter which means that it does not contain the difficult to digest dairy protein (casein) and sugar (lactose).

What is Grass-fed and why is it important to only consume animals or animal products that have been grass fed?

Grass-fed cows are pasture-raised and eat what nature intended them to eat; Grass. Most of the conventional cows are fed large amounts of grains (primarily corn), soy and other supplements to increase milk production and decrease cost. They are kept in crowded feedlots and don’t get the opportunity to roam freely and peacefully in the sun and eat high-fiber green grass. This makes them vulnerable to various diseases, which are then treated with antibiotics. Cows are also given growth hormones to increase milk production. However, scientific studies show that grass-fed, pasture-raised cows are healthier and they produce better quality and safer milk.
Dairy products from grass fed animals have higher levels of Vitamin C, Vitamin E, Beta Carotene, Omega-3 fatty acids and Conjugated Linoleic Acid (CLA). CLA is a newly discovered good fat which may inhibit the proliferation of several types of cancers, lower total and LDL cholesterol, lower triglyceride levels, reverse the symptoms of diabetes, improve immunity, help reduce body fat and improve bone formation.

More Conjugated Linoleic Acid (CLA)

CLA level in fat from grass fed animals is three to five times more than in the fat from animals which are fed conventional diets. So if you are serious about fighting these deadly diseases then be sure to pick-up a grass-fed product.
The ratio of Omega-6 and Omega-3 Fats is around 3:1 for grass-fed animals and over 20:1 for grain-fed animals, since grass is rich in Omega-3 and grains have higher Omega-6. So eating more grass-fed products helps you maintain the right balance of Omega-6 and Omega-3 fatty acids.

Go Green
Grass-fed dairies are generally small. They promote harmony between the land and the animals. They support biodiversity and reduce waste. They work in a sustainable manner and are good for our environment .

Ghee Benefits

Best for cooking
Ghee is one of the best oils for cooking. It stimulates digestive fire (or Agni) according to Ayurveda. It has a very high smoke point and its chemical structure does not change at high heat. It produces sweet aroma when heated. You use less than half of other oils and it enhances the flavor of food.

Sattvic Food
Cow Ghee is considered a sattvic food in Ayurveda. Cow milk has the essense of the grass and plants, and cow ghee possesses the essence of cow milk.

Brain Food
Ghee is a nutrient dense food and contains CLA, Omega-3, fat soluble vitamins A, D, E and K2 (Activator X). Fat soluble vitamins which help in production of proteins and lipids essential for mental health. Synthetic vitamins don't contain co-factors, activators and enzymes which are required for the full absorption of the vitamins. So getting your vitamins from natural food is the best and safest option.

Healthy Skin
Ghee keeps skin soft, smooth and lubricated. It also has anti-aging properties.

Dr. Weston A Price's X Factor
A nutrition pioneer Dr. Weston A Price documented the tremendous health benefits of taking deep-yellow butter oil (high in X Factor).

No Trans Fats
Ghee does not contain harmful trans fats which can cause heart disease and many other serious health problems.

Information from Pure Indian Foods

I now sell Ghee made from organic, grass fed, free-ranging cows from Lancaster county.

7.5 oz jars = $10
13.5 oz jars = $15
28 oz jars = $26 {Your BEST buy!}

Beautiful Wisdom

The following poem was written by my 10 year old niece. She is indeed a wise soul. May you find inspiration in her words and motivation to continue on your journey.

Rebuild Yourself

Life is a building you make.
Sometimes you feel it is all crashing down.

But it isn’t because there is still a foundation.
A hard slab of memories packed in tight.

When your foundation is there your life is there.
All you have to do is find more bricks.

Rediscover Peppermint!

The following information is from Young Living's newsletter...

Young Living's peppermint is a must-have for every home and is the ideal essential oil for pampering! One of our most versatile oils, we've dedicated February to rediscovering its many uses.

Whether you want to experience the cooling sensation of menthol on overworked muscles, enjoy an invigorating foot scrub, or soothe an upset stomach, peppermint essential oil can help! Here are a few quick and easy ways to incorporate peppermint into your daily routine:

* Add a drop to herbal tea to help aid in digestion.
* Massage several drops on the abdomen, place a drop on the tip of the tongue or wrists, or inhale to soothe minor stomach discomfort associated with travel.
* Combine with lavender essential oil for a soothing and invigorating body, neck, or foot massage.

Our peppermint essential oil comes from the most potent plants around the globe—some is even grown on Young Living farms—and is tested to ensure proper levels of menthol and menthone are in every bottle.

But there's more to Young Living Therapeutic Grade™ peppermint than just finding the best plants. The secret is in expert harvesting practices. Peppermint is harvested when the field's overall appearance goes from light to dark green. The growers make sure the plant has just started to bloom before the peppermint is cut, and then water is carefully measured prior to distillation to ensure the most potent constituents are steam-extracted.

What is Raindrop Technique?

The Raindrop Technique is a method of using Vita Flex, reflexology, massage techniques, and essential oils applied on various locations of the body to bring it structural and electrical alignment. It is designed to bring balance to the body with its relaxing and mild application. It will help align the energy centers of the body and release them if blocked, without using hard pressure or trying to force the body to change. Raindrop is extremely cleansing for the body and offers a tremendous boost to your immune system.
What can a Raindrop session do for you? Your session will cleanse your body, mind, and spirit and profoundly inspire you on your journey. Raindrop is helpful in alleviating back pain, boosting your immune system, correcting scoliosis, easing stress, healing from cancer and more!

A typical raindrop session facilitated by me includes:

* Time in the beginning to let me know of your intention for the session and what has happened in your life since your last session.

* You start out on the massage table face up with your feet at the very edge of the table. I apply a blend called Valor to your feet then your shoulders.

* I begin applying each oil to each foot using a reflexology technique called Vita Flex. I use Valor, Oregano, Thyme, Basil, Wintergreen, Cypress, and Peppermint in that order.

* You turn over on the table and I drop oils along your spine from your sacrum (hips) to your occiput (head). I apply the same oils as your feet with the addition of Marjoram after Wintergreen.

* You then receive a warm towel on your back and I support your body in releasing and regenerating with gentle energy.

* After you are dressed, we talk about your experience and I send you on your way with a recommendation or two.

* You feel relaxed and energized to take on your life!

Experience the sacred healing power of Young Living Essential Oils. Raindrop Technique Sessions are 90 minutes and $100 until the end of February. Starting in March the fee is $125.

When I went to my Raindrop session with Susie, I had been fighting off a cold of some sort, and the symptoms were completely gone as of that afternoon. It seemed to be what my body needed to completely kick whatever it was. I also struggle with a tightness and hunching in my upper back due to physical work, and I was quite aware that i had much better posture for days after my session! I've also enjoyed utilizing healthful ideas I learned from reading her literature about the session and blog :) ~Krystal
