Happy Valentine’s Day to all my readers.

The first thing that comes to mind when we think of Valentine's Day is relationships - and in particular that special someone, preferably a life partner. If you are not in a relationship, it's about attracting that perfect someone.

Since the most profound aspect of body typing is the knowledge of self at one's core level, the body type profile is a profound way of also knowing someone else. This month's feature article is a "how to" guide toward attracting your ideal relationship.

I hope and trust my newsletters help you to enjoy a healthier, happier life.

Health and Happiness,

You might be a Heart Body Type if …


Getting the Relationship of your Dreams

One of the most common questions I hear is, "What body type is best for me?" The answer is, "What do you want in a relationship?" All too often, our relationships are by default. First relationships (generally first marriages) are to someone who is very similar to the parent we had the greatest difficulty with when we were growing up. For those who were able to work through the challenges, the marriage survives; for those who weren't, the marriage ends in divorce. The problem is that when the challenges have not been met and resolved, the next relationship (marriage) is simply the same person with a different face - and generally the same body type.

So, where do you start to change the pattern? First is with yourself and your own personality profile (found in the Body Type Diet and Profile Book or in the Women’s Edition or the Men’s Edition). Once you understand yourself by knowing what is most important to you, what motivates you, and your characteristic traits - the ones that make up the essence of who you are – then read at the "At Worst" characteristics to see if you identify with any of them and if so, are you willing to change? You cannot attract and maintain that which you do not possess yourself. In other words, if you want a loving, understanding, compassionate person in your life, you have to be that person. Vibrationals and Essential Oils are useful tools (see below).

Now that we have the basics out of the way, who do you want in your life? This can change as you go through different stages of your life. Do you want a playmate, someone who is a good provider for your children, someone who supports you in your career, someone with similar beliefs, someone who forces you to grow, or someone who is nurturing? What are your priorities, what is important to you?

Do you want someone whose dominant characteristic is Mental or Emotional? This means when push comes to shove, and you have an important decision to make, what do you rely on, your head - and it's not the same as your intuition, although that can be another factor - or your gut? When differences arise, can you rationally talk about them, or do you need time to cool off and approach it when you are fresh and rested?

The Quadrants chart (below) will show you the 4 dominant traits and the body types that fall into each group. Locate your bodytype and the Quadrant you are in. Do you want someone like you? If so, pick someone who is in the same Quadrant as you; for example, if you are an Eye body type, you are Mental/Spiritual, so select someone who is also Mental/Spiritual. Do you want someone you connect with on one trait? Then select someone who is Mental/Physical or Spiritual/Emotional, like Heart or Intestinal. Or do you want someone who is opposite of you? This would be a Physical/Emotional type. The value of having people in your life who have opposite strengths than you is that it allows you to learn how these traits are expressed and integrate them into yourself.

Once you have an idea of what you want, read the one paragraph "Essence" of the body types. You can start with a narrowed down list, or simply read them all. Pick the ones that interest you and hopefully have some of the characteristics you are looking for. Next read the "Characteristic Traits" and the "At Worst". If you find any body types you know you cannot live with, and they are friends, don't marry them, just keep them as friends.

Your choices should now be narrowed down to a manageable list. You can now look at the photographs to see the physical identifying characteristics, and read the rest of the profile to know where to find them by looking at their interests and "Motivation". Now you can fill in the gaps by getting to know them and exploring your connections.

What about the relationship you are currently in? Reading each other's "Psychological Profile" will go a long way in understanding each other. It also provides a lot of material for discussion and understanding another's point of view. The common belief is that "everyone thinks like I think, and if I explain it well enough, they will understand it." Unfortunately, it doesn't work that way. Knowing a person's strengths "At Best" allows you to let go of unrealistic expectations and appreciate them for who they are.

Essential Oil of the Month: Abundance

While often associated with money, Abundance really refers to anything in life that brings you joy – including healthy relationships.

The Abundance essential oil blend was created to enhance the frequency of the energy field that surrounds us through the electrical stimulation of the somatides. Somatides transmit the frequency from the cells to the outside of the body when they are stimulated through fragrance and the thought process. This frequency, called the electrical field or the aura, creates what is called the "law of attraction," or that which we attract to ourselves. This might bring about an abundance of health, both physical and emotional. The oils in Abundance also contain tremendous antiviral and antifungal properties.

Abundance is a blend of myrrh, cinnamon bark, frankincense, patchouli, orange, clove, and spruce. It can be used as a perfume or cologne, although those with sensitive skin may wish to dilute it with V-6 mixing oil, massage oil, or satin body lotion. It can be inhaled while visualizing.

For those already familiar with Releasing Emotional Patterns with Essential Oils, Abundance can be used to address several emotions:
  • Not enough
  • Poor
  • Scarcity
  • Struggle
  • Worry

With February being a month often associated with relationships, releasing these emotions can be supportive by removing barriers that often hold us back.

Worry, one of the emotions addressed by Abundance, is one of the core emotional issues of the Heart Body Type (see below).

The process is also detailed in my video (click below).

Are You a Heart Body Type?

You might be a Heart Body Type if:
  • You are very approachable, sweet and lovable, and tend to inspire hugs
  • You are very aware of, and sensitive to, the emotional state of others
  • You find it hard to be objective when immersed in your emotions
  • You have a natural ability to influence the emotions of those around you
  • You feel driven to either change or leave disharmonious situations

If this sounds like you, you may be a Heart Body Type!

Heart Body Type celebrities include Elvis Presley, Elton John, Mae West, Sally Field.

Now that you have a better idea of what you want in a relationship, how do you go about attracting it? The place to start is with yourself. Reading your psychological profile brings things into conscious awareness. Essential oils will help you change a negative pattern into a positive one, as described in more detail in Releasing Emotional Patterns with Essential Oils. Vibrationals clear the frequencies that hold cellular residue in place.

Vibrationals are homeopathic remedies formulated to a specific frequency using plant essences. They are designed to clear the frequencies that hold various emotional patterns and limiting residue. They include genetic lineage, eternal patterns, chakras, and each of the 25 different body types. Take the body type vibrational that matches your body type or the one for someone else in your life.

Using the vibrational for your own body type will help to align you within your own body type in two ways:
  • Clear out the “at worst” personality traits for your body type
  • Integrate the positive qualities of your body type

Then, use the vibrational that matches the body type for the relationship in your life that presents the greatest tension. The relationship will change, either the conflict/irritation dissipates or the relationship dissolves - with both of you peacefully drifting apart and going your separate ways.
