Dear Readers,

I am continually asked about classes or courses on Releasing Emotional Patterns with Essential Oils. I am pleased to announce that I have just launched video courses on my website. One course is currently available, with more on the way. At the end of each course I provide an attractive 8.5x11" Certificate that is suitable for framing.

The depth and accuracy of the Personality Profile continues to be the biggest surprise when people first discover their body type. This month I explain the four aspects, or quadrants, of the Personality Profiles.

Valor Essential Oil can be used to release the emotion of Conflict, which is one of the Core Emotional Issues for the Adrenal Body Type.

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

Health and Happiness,
Dr. Carolyn Mein

Decoding Your Personality Type

Are You an Adrenal Body Type?

Valor Essential Oil for Releasing Conflict

Decoding Your Personality Type

When I look at the basic nature of a person, I consider four traits: mental, emotional, physical and spiritual. We are born with two of these traits dominant, which defines how we perceive the world and interact with others. The other two traits are recessive, and we develop them as we grow. Together, the four combinations of these traits describe the 4 quadrants of the personality spectrum.

Understanding the Quadrants

Being more “mental” than “emotional” doesn’t mean we don’t feel or experience our emotions – it means that we trust what we think about a situation more than our feelings about it. A “mental” will typically make an informed, logical decision before a “gut” decision. The more information that supports the decision, the more confidant the decision becomes. An emotional type will trust a decision that “feels” right regardless of information that’s available.

Likewise, being more “physical” than “spiritual” isn’t about a belief system – it means we are comfortable in our bodies and interpret situations literally or at face value, rather than trusting based on a concept or an ideal. A spiritual nature embodies the ability to trust in a concept or an idea, even if it’s unproven in a physical way. A physical type is often characterized by a wide, grounded stance, while a spiritual type will stand with their feet together. A physical will walk directly into a room full of people and establish themselves, while a spiritual is more likely to quietly observe before making their presence known. Spiritual types tend to be more sensitive to the feelings of others, while physicals use action as a reaction.

Quadrants and Body Type

Each of the 25 body types is born with a specific pair of these basic personality traits dominant. The combinations are physical/mental, spiritual/mental, physical/emotional and physical/mental. Here the 25 body types are shown positioned based upon their dominant innate personality traits:

Human civilization is highly suited to those with a physical/mental disposition; the polar opposite, the spiritual/emotional type, is more prone to feeling they don’t fit in as well, and of the 25 body types only two have this disposition.

The Heart body type is one of these two spiritual/emotional types. True to their name, as well as their emotional nature, Hearts exude an approachability and a sensitivity to others that is truly heartfelt. Their amplified feelings often take them on an emotional roller coaster ride, when it appears to others they are blowing things out of proportion. When they attain inner emotional peace with self, their spiritual nature allows them to be happy regardless of physical circumstances.

Like the Heart body type, Gonadal body types (physical/emotional) are prone to being controlled by their emotions, and are also very sensitive to the feelings of others. Being more people-oriented (emotional) than task-oriented (mental), they understand when emotional support is needed and they provide it. They often pursue careers such as hairdresser or interior designer, working with others and creating physical beauty, with less of a mental focus. Gonadals are happiest when everything is light and playful, with high sexual energy which increases their physical attractiveness.

While Gonadals embody the physical aspects of their nature in a playful or sexual way, Adrenal body types (physical/mental) present more of a brute force appearance with their strong, commanding physical presence and energy. They like to mentally examine problems from multiple angles to arrive at a practical solution. They may appear to have a short attention span because once they’ve figured out a solution their alert mind wants to move on to something else and leave the details to others.

The Thyroid body type embodies the spiritual/mental type. Like the spiritual Heart body type, Thyroids are very sensitive to the feelings and emotions of others, and exhibit a strong compassion or empathy for them. Having the mental instead of the emotional characteristic allows them to be more self-sufficient emotionally, and when confrontation is needed, they can wait until they feel the time is right and will go to lengths to prepare so that the other person is not offended. Their mental nature affords the ability to study and understand complex concepts in depth.

Understanding our own nature, and the nature of those around us, helps us relate better to each other. Emotional and mental types express very differently. Physical and spiritual types approach the same problem or task differently. Learning to understand each other not only improves communication, but also helps us to expand our own recessive traits, and grow.

Are You an Adrenal Body Type?

Adrenal body types have a strong and charismatic presence that makes them immediately noticed when they enter a room. They are competitive and motivated by physical signs of success, and frequently excel in sales and sports. They have strong, muscular bodies with high stamina and endurance, and can gain and lose large amounts of weight more easily than most other body types. They have a need to "clear the air" and do so bluntly when they need to get something off their chest - then they are done with the matter.

Does this sound like you, or someone you know?

Women with Adrenal body type have a "boyish" figure, with a straight, poorly defined waist, and medium-to-large bone structure. They have a wide, grounded stance, and solid musculature throughout their torso, arms, thighs, and calves. Weight gains easily and often fluctuates according to their emotional state. Weight gain begins in the abdomen, waist, entire back, upper hips, upper arms, upper thighs, breasts and face. Secondary weight gain is all over.
Men with Adrenal body type have a strong, stocky appearance with solid musculature. Muscular definition is easy for them to attain with exercise. Their shoulders are moderately to markedly broader than hips, and height is average to tall. They can easily gain gain, which accumulates as a "beer belly" or a solid thickening of the waist.

Valor Essential Oil for Releasing Conflict

One of the core emotional issues for the Adrenal body type is Fear of Conflict. Conflict may be inner, or may be a conflict with others. Inner conflict is often manifested as an internal struggle between beliefs, which can lead to indecision about how to act or react to a situation. We often have outdated beliefs that conflict with more evolved thinking and new experiences. A state of peace is reached when we synchronize our beliefs with current experience and thinking, and the affirmation statement to release Conflict is “I am at peace”.

This emotional pattern can be released using the Valor Essential Oil blend. The other side (or way out) of Conflict is Peace, and the affirmation is "I am at peace." The fear of Conflict is stored in the Adrenal Cortex.

Valor is a blend of rosewood, blue tansy, frankincense and spruce and in ancient times was used to prepare soldiers for battle. Valor Essential Oil balances energies to instill courage, confidence, and self-esteem. It helps the body self-correct its balance and alignment. Valor may be applied to the bottoms of the feet, wrists, chest, base of neck or along the spine in raindrop technique. It may be directly inhaled, or 2-4 drops added to bath water.

Other emotions that the essential oil Valor is used to clear are: Aggression, Defensiveness, Inability to Cope, Losing a Battle, Feeling or Being Persecuted, Resignation and Withdrawn.
