Issue No. 30


Dear Readers,

Mark your calendar for Saturday January 2, 2016 when I will be presenting a workshop on Releasing Emotional Patterns with Essential Oils. The workshop will be held at a scenic venue in Temecula CA. Click here for tickets and more information.

My 25 Body Type System is sometimes mis-characterized as simply another diet program. So I find that people are invariably surprised when they read the personality profile for their body type for the first time. This month I look at what motivates a Eye body type, and what their core emotional issues and life lessons are.

Overwhelm and Fear of Emotions are two core emotional issues for the Eye body type. Envision and PanAway are the essential oils to release these emotions, as discussed below.

The holidays often bring emotional stress. In my newsletter archives, you can find tips for managing holiday stress.

Looking for healthful and easy holiday gift ideas? I have a few – see the very bottom of this newsletter for those.

As always, I hope and trust that these newsletters help you enjoy a happier, healthier life.

Health and Happiness,
Dr. Carolyn Mein

The Eye Body Type

Do you tend to notice things that people around you miss? Would you describe your humor as a dry, subtle style? Are you good at “looking” at something to determine what is wrong and what needs to be done to fix it? When you look at your baby pictures, are you all eyes? If this describes you, you could be an Eye body type.

Core Emotional Issues

The Eye body type is, by nature, a visionary. They see things other people don’t notice, including emotional dysfunction. Being highly intuitive, sensitive and compassionate, they will often take things on telling themselves, “I’m strong, I can handle it.” As children, when emotional dysfunction is perceived and they feel there is nothing they can do about it, they will unconsciously refuse to see it and need glasses at a young age, often age 7 or 8, or even younger. The core emotional issue for the Eye body type is the fear of SEEING which will often manifest as the fear of EMOTIONS. It is easier to stuff emotions than feel and express them since rarely do the people around them have the skills to assist in transmuting painful emotions into positive experiences.

The job of the ego is to protect, and it will protect in one of two ways – either by standing and fighting, or by rolling over and being passive, otherwise expressed as a victim. The fighting response is to give someone the finger – “F—YOU” and the passive is to feel OVERWHELMED. Obviously, neither one is love based and will not solve the problem. Continue reading to discover a solution.

Life Lesson and Passion

The life lesson for the Eye is “to make a difference in the world.” What gives the Eye body type the greatest sense of joy and fulfillment – their PASSION – is TO MAKE A DIFFERENCE. Making a difference can be in any area of life; it can be personal and/or public. It includes small daily acts of kindness, up to contributions the world would notice, and everything in between.


The life experience of the Eye is EXPERIENCE. Eyes frequently find themselves going through a wide range of personal experiences versus learning from someone else’s experiences. The dominant traits of the Eye body type are Mental and Spiritual which means they are often idealistic and will generally use their hands to manifest ideas and concepts into the physical world. Their sensitive Spiritual aspect allows them to observe without judgment and makes them aware of the effect that releasing and transmuting negative emotions has on people.

Envision Essential Oil

Envision Essential Oil helps reawaken internal drive and independence. It helps overcome the fear of experiencing new dimensions by opening and elevating the mind. The essential oil helps renew faith in the future and stimulates creative and intuitive abilities.

The emotions associated with the essential oil ENVISION are the fear of being Confined and Overwhelmed. The other side of Confined is Freedom and the way to get to freedom is, “I allow myself to see.” Confined is often a state of mind where we hold ourselves in bondage. Breaking free requires letting go of our self-imposed limitations.

Overwhelmed occurs when there are too many things in front of us and we don’t know what to do first. Vision requires getting above the mess and looking at it from a higher perspective. “I focus my energy” directs you into the action of cleaning up the mess.

Envision contains six powerful essential oils that help you amplify emotional fortitude to achieve your goals and dreams: Sage, Geranium, Orange, Rose (Creates magnetic energy that attracts love and brings joy to the heart), Lavender, and Spruce. Application points: 1 to 2 drops on forehead, edge of ears, wrists, neck, temples and feet.

Envision may also be diffused, directly inhaled, or you may add 2-4 drops to bath water. Put 2 drops on a wet cloth and put in clothes dryer. Put 4-8 drops on cotton ball and locate on vents.

PanAway Essential Oil

PanAway was created by Gary Young following a severe injury to the ligaments in his leg. It integrates the soothing properties of Helichrysum, Wintergreen Clove, and Peppermint. PanAway reduces pain and inflammation, increases circulation, and accelerates healing. It relieves sore muscles, counters stressed nerves, and may enhance overall well-being. If you have localized soreness after gardening, shopping, working out, or any other physical activity, reach for PanAway.

PanAway is associated with the fear of emotions, exhaustion and pain. Emotions in general are held in the body in the Fascia which is the connective tissue that covers the muscles and allows the individual muscles to move over each other. The other side of the fear of Emotions is Feeling – allowing yourself to feel. Getting there requires letting go, “I let go and allow.”

Exhaustion is found in Muscle. The other side is Energy and the way to have energy is to take care of yourself, “I nurture myself.”

Pain is associated with Injury. The other side is Vibrant. The way to be vibrant is by being full of life, “I am alive.”

How to use: Diffuse/humidify, directly inhale, or add 2-4 drops to bath water. Apply to the bottoms of feet and follow with localized topical applications. Rub on temples, back of neck or forehead. Dilute 1 part PanAway and 1 part vegetable oil. Use as a compress along the spine.

Chakra Harmony DVD

Dr. Carolyn Mein and toning instructor Alana Bogaarde present this Chakra Harmony DVD which combines toning and the use of essential oils to balance the chakras. Each chakra has a corresponding musical note. When combined with specific essential oils applied to alarm points, and affirmation statements, toning is a powerful and effective way to achieve harmony.

For a quick pickup, test each chakra and treat only the one or ones that are out of balance. The most powerful is the eighth chakra which ties all the chakras and the energies they carry together. Tone three times to correct, running your hand from the top of your head down your sides, back, and front of your body, clearing your field and sealing your aura with your intention. Retest to confirm correction and determine if anything else needs to be enhanced. Enhancing the 8th chakra with Idaho Balsam Fir essential oil will balance your energy for the day, allowing you to approach the world with a clear field and attract your hearts desire.

The DVD references the use of several essential oils, so for a more complete gift these assortments are also available:

Chakra Harmony DVD with carrying case containing 8 essential oils - Joy, SARA, Sacred Mountain, White Angelica, Ylang Ylang, Cedarwood, Release, Idaho Balsam Fir
