Jealousy is an emotion that typically results from negative thoughts or feelings of insecurity, fear, anxiety... over the possible loss of relationship, friendship, or love. It may also be a resentment or painful desire for someone else's advantages.
The thing about jealousy is that oftentimes this emotion surfaces over imagined scenarios that have little to do with reality. Yet once this ugly monster rears its head, trying to control it is like trying to control a car without breaks going downhill.
But even if there is justification for jealousy, the resulting anger does little to alleviate the situation for all concerned, including ourselves. There are certainly more effective ways to deal with others who have wronged us. And in the case of imagined wrong-doings, there are gentler and kinder ways to deal with our soul.
The first step to overcoming jealousy is to be vigilant. Learn what triggers this emotion and prepare yourself to attack it before it gets out of hand. If your problem is with imagined scenarios in your mind, then use your imagination as an invaluable weapon. If you are imagining that your partner is meeting with another to cheat on you, imagine instead that they are plotting to throw you the biggest surprise party ever. Or if you are jealous because your friend got the promotion you wanted, imagine that something even greater is going to happen to you this month. Go wild with ideas of how something that you perceive happening may just as likely be something so diametrically opposed in reality.
The following essential oil blends are very beneficial in overcoming jealousy and combating the resulting emotional upheaval:
Harmony, Humilty, Surrender, Release, Gratitude
Put 2-3 drops of one of the blends over the area where you feel the negative results of the emotion the worst, i.e. your gut, your heart, the temples (if the mind chatter is driving you crazy). Or if you are feeling it all over, put 1 drop on each of the chakras.
