ZEN SUBSCRIPTION BOX
The truth is, we are all desperately trying to fill an inner emptiness we feel inside. We may have different ways of dealing with this inner feeling— sometimes even distracting ourselves with things outside of us. But the goal is always to achieve absolute peace of mind.
The first step toward untethering ourselves from unhealthy habits is awareness. Therefore, we must focus on what we can control ourselves.
Through self-awareness, we become less judgemental and more empathetic. To achieve inner peace, we must create the peace we want to experience, as Ghandi once said, “Be the change that you wish to see in the world.”
This month, we’re relinquishing anything that steals our joy and sense of inner peace in pursuit of serenity, or ZEN.
In order to expand our consciousness and achieve a state of oneness between the body and mind we must be willing to let go of bad habits and negative thinking. Sound hard? We’ve got you covered. This month we want to help you stay ZEN. Our ZEN blend was specially formulated to help you tap into your inner calm to achieve balance and peace. Made with Lemongrass, Cedarwood, Bergamot and Lavender, the uplifting Zen Blend promotes creativity, peace and healing throughout the body.
Merkaela believes that everyone has a natural capability to rewire the brain by thought alone. Affirmations change the way we approach a situation instead of reacting to a situation. To change an outcome we have to overcome old habits and incorporate new thought patterns. The affirmation is a form on empowerment which allows you to do just that.
The affirmation that coincides with the ZEN SUBSCRIPTION BOX is meant to gently affirm a state of calmness, tranquility and balance.
We recommend saying the affirmation at the start of each day or as needed, for a gentle reminder of your ability to rise above. Once the month is complete we ask that you pass a long your mantra to a family member, friend or person in need of encouragement.
I can easily access profound
inner peace, awareness and balance!
