Rose Otto (Rosa Damascena)
I love essential oils with an ultimate passion.
I found aromatherapy way back in the mid 80’s when I was living in London.
I found it by mistake really I was not looking for it or that particularly interested at first. I was much more interested in Astrology and was taking an evening class in Hackney with Wanda Sellar who is a fine astrologer and I was also about to find out a wonderful aromatherapist too.
So I joined Wanda’s class in astrology, I got to know Wanda quite well as I did quite a few classes with her. She asked me along to her aromatherapy class. So I went along not really knowing what to expect.
Well after a few classes she pulls me to one side and tells me I’m a complete natural and asks me to be her assistant. She helped me to see what I couldn’t which was an affinity for essential oils and a natural talent at massage.
I’ve been busy over the last week blogging and also thinking about all the good stuff to go on my website
I’m about to start uploading it then I’ll have a chat with my friend Nick who’s a web/graphic designer (Delazo is his company) to get everything moving so it’s all nice and pretty to look at
I’m getting quite excited as I’ve always wanted to do this and It will look fab once I’ve got the pictures up and text written
My Therapy Room
I sanded and varnished the floors myself!
I painted it with the help of my trusty assistant Ross (my son)
My room is nearly finished I just need to purchase a lampshade and some lovely voile for the window
Happiness is utterly crucial here, I just know what doesn’t serve me …
Life is about living; being who you are and staying true to yourself..always
Even when it means you have to put “your hoof” down… (Taurus)
Feeling good is paramount, moping doesn’t solve anything; it just takes longer to get out of the shit!
I’ve learnt that much and I know what works for me and what doesn’t
It’s not been easy sometimes as I’m stubborn and can’t see stuff that needs to changed right in front of me
I’m also good-hearted and loving so maybe I’m just too bloody nice sometimes; the inner bitch (babe in total control of herself) doesn’t come out enough and say maybe more often … “hey sod off”
I’d like to think I’m hardly ever like that as I see the essence of people and most people are essentially lovely
I do have one thing in my favour: I trust my instincts and my intuition
I have been working with energy and have done since I was about 15, though I don’t see myself as a tree-hugging hippy type (maybe I’m too cynical)
I can be gentle but I’m also a punk rocker Reiki Master, hahaha… now that sounds much more fun
I use the Sedona Method and I love a wonderful forum called Hootless
Love without fear…
Go on trust yourself a bit more … give it a whirl: you might surprise yourself
Life and loving someone is like getting a secret present: the more you unwrap the layers, the better it gets
