About Lesson

Seven FIGURES SLIMMING

On the seventh day of Christmas, dōTERRA gave to me:
Seven figures slimming

The holidays tend to be an uncomfortable – and maybe even frustrating – time for people who are trying to release the weight that they’ve accumulated over the year. For many people, weight loss is such a challenging and demoralizing process, and it is easy to become disheartened and discouraged.

But today, on DAY 07, let’s continue yesterday’s hopeful tone by learning more about how we can release weight naturally – without any miserable diet – by strengthening our metabolic health, balancing our blood sugar levels, and curbing unhelpful cravings. And four (4) lucky winners will get a hopeful – and helpful – headstart on their weight loss goals by getting the gift of MetaPWR!

The Prize

Three (3) people will win:
1x 15mL dōTERRA MetaPWR oil
1x dōTERRA MetaPWR Beadlets

One (1) person will win:
1x 15mL dōTERRA MetaPWR oil

How To Enter

Step 01 – Read the Education content below and watch the video clip. Today, it is powerful content, but you will not be quizzed on it. I’d rather you just meditate on the simple principle I share here.
Step 02 – Complete the Seventh Day of Christmas Task.
Step 03 – If you have any questions about the lesson, ask in the Comment Section below.

BONUS ENTRY
1) Read my blog post about the MetaPWR System and share one new thing that you learned in the Comment Section below!

Education

Many people don’t realize that their metabolic health has a meaningful impact on all other areas of their health. Nutrition is the ultimate foundation of health. Unfortunately, 95% of us are nutritionally deficient in some way, which is why dōTERRA created the Lifelong Vitality Pack (LLV), which is designed to supplement all the nutrients that the average North American diet is desperately lacking in.

However, apart from nutrition and digestion, your metabolism is the foundation of health on which all other areas of health rely. And yet, according to the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey, in 2017-2018, only 6.8% of Americans had optimal metabolic health. While we’d all like to imagine that we’re in that 6.8%, the vast majority of us are clearly struggling with our metabolic health.

The dōTERRA MetaPWR System is specifically designed to help you get your metabolism functioning optimally! It includes three core components: the MetaPWR Metabolic Oil Blend, the MetaPWR Assist capsules, and the MetaPWR Advantage products. The MetaPWR Metabolic Oil Blend is focused on helping get your metabolic health back to a stable and sustainable point. It is designed to inhibit fat cell maturation, curb cravings, and support your overall metabolic health.* You can learn more about the other products by reading my blog post about the MetaPWR System.

I would encourage everyone to get on both the LLV and the MetaPWR System, if you aren’t on them already. They have absolutely revolutionized my world! For those who are interested, here’s how the MetaPWR System is best incorporated into your daily routine:

 

Remind yourself of this spiritual truth over and over until it becomes second nature. Only when you truly apply it will you be able to have a fresh start (rather than repeat old patterns). In today’s task, you’ll be asked to recommend someone to come to my New Beginnings Workshop (with their permission). I encourage you to recommend yourself first if you need it.

Seventh Day of Christmas Task

Let’s listen to the stories of those who have experienced firsthand the blessing and benefits of dōTERRA’s MetaPWR System! To complete today’s entry, do the following:
1) Join the MetaPWR Testimonials Facebook Group;*
2) Pick your favourite testimonial; and
3) Share in the Comment Section below why that testimonial speaks to you.

  1. Thanks Kimberley for reminding me again that forgiveness is so important. I get busy with life, work, etc. and things happen with people that sometimes I hang on to. I know it’s wrong and I always have to forgive, but sometimes it takes longer than it should. When I don’t forgive someone, there is always something that seems to wear me down until I take the time and figure out what’s wrong, or if I can’t, I ask God and He always comes through at some point, sometimes later than earlier, but He does do it. When I forgive, God starts working with the person(s) that I was hurt by and at times, He even restores the relationship. I also must remember that sometimes I unconsciously can hurt someone as well. I try to remember to pray like David did – Psalm 139:23-24 KJV
    Search me, O God, and know my heart: Try me, and know my thoughts: And see if there be any wicked way in me, And lead me in the way everlasting.

    Forgiveness stills the heart and renews my fellowship with the Lord. It is very freeing.

  2. I had the unfortunate experience of being undervalued for my contributions and had to resign from a group that i had a contributed many years to, although i was very hurt by many people it was the best thing i ever did the immediate stress relief when i submitted that letter was amazing. It was time to move on and only good things came to me after i left

    1. That happens so often through groups like that. It was the same for my husband that coached our son’s hockey team for more than 10years. It was such a release for him when he left the position.

  3. Charlene Saaiman

    I need to do some “self forgiveness” I think…..
    Once I am healed from what I believe I need forgivving from then one can start to forgive others and move one.,…

  4. Jenny Aitchison

    I love today’s prize!! Oils are great but having an opportunity to learn in a group with Kimberley is way more valuable than any oil that doTERRA could give you.

    This message on forgiveness is a good reminder, we can’t hold onto offense towards other people and expect God to forgive us of our sins.

  5. Why and how did you peak into my life?

    1. I have absolutely no contact with my brother for 9 months now.
    2. I was a victim of molestation by a family member.
    3. My mother’s “killer” is still just – ignored.

    How can I ever make peace?
    How can I just forgive what they did?

    I’m sorry – this is really not a happy topic for me.

    BTW, I became an aunt yesterday. My mom sent me the photo because my bro and his wife are just spiteful. Family feuds… I know.

    1. I mean – aren’t they the cutest feet??? Yes. I would oil them. Now I’m not allowed.

      OVERALL:
      I need PEACE.
      I need to understand.
      Yes. I need help.

      1. I admire your boldness to share your situation. I believe when you are able to share you are already on the emotional journey of making things right for yourself. The journey can be long but you are on it and can create light in the darkness.

      2. I so hear you Karina and I admire your boldness in being willing to express how you feel. I can’t imagine the grief you bear and the hurt caused by the ones involved.
        I know for myself – I was a victim of sexual abuse for 5 years from my mother’s boyfriend. Even after he was found guilty by the courts, my mother called me a liar.
        My journey was a slow one but, once I chose to forgive, it was my path to freedom and healing. Forgiving isn’t saying that what they did was ok, it is saying “You owe me…big time! But, I’m choosing to let go of the debt you owe me – for MY sake – and I’m trusting God will repay everything that was stolen.”
        Sending love to you across the miles. ❤️

  6. Nicole Gaudioso

    My life in details, has a dark past. I can relate so much. i cant go into details but there’s so much hurt and healing that happened. Beautiful video

  7. I am blessed to have a Mom who demonstrates forgiveness with the kindest heart imaginable. I wish I could have inherited some of her abilities as I find it very hard to forgive. I instead try to forget.
    I was the victim of an MVA over 10 years ago. The other driver didn’t ever apologize for the pain he caused. Whenever I see him, I am brought back to that unfortunate day. I wish I had the strength to forgive him.

    1. I bless you Joanne. I can only imagine what damage came into your world as a result of his actions. I pray you find your way into forgiving. You can read my testimony under Karina’s comment – maybe my struggle can help encourage you.

  8. You made a statement which I found thought provoking in your video which I do not recall hearing before from the reading I have done on forgiveness. The statement was ”When you are forgiving you are releasing someone from a debt.” I am pondering on this and appreciate some of the other comments made in this short clip. Some things are easy to forgive, but there are other situations where we likely won’t be able to forgive without a relationship with God and his help with the restoration process. I often think of the betrayal and cruelty Jesus experienced while he was living on earth and ask myself ”what would Jesus do”? Remembering what Jesus went through and how he responded to our cruelty helps me to have empathy for the wrong doer and can lead to forgiving.

    1. We live in a hurting world and “hurting people hurt people”. I think of the debt I owe because of my careless words or actions done in anger and I am grateful God doesn’t hold me to the debt I owe. Releasing someone else’s debt toward me seems like the only proper response I can give – even if I feel tempted to diminish the value of what I owed in comparison to what I believe they owe me.
      We leave it to God to sort out the details and we just choose freedom through forgiveness in the meantime.

  9. I have done this on more than one occasion. But it is truly hard to continue to forgive someone when they keep doing the same thing over and over again even after you have forgiven them. So for me it was best to leave that relationship behind so that I could live at peace. No more drama.

  10. Roberta Adderley

    “Let it go! Let it go!!!”… I find myself singing this frequently. Allowing myself to “turn off” the wifi connections has lightened my emotional and mental load greatly ?

  11. Forgiveness has been a journey for me. Not just the destination. I had to forgive my father for being a narcissist. My M.I.L for treating me the way she did, and a friend that suddenly became a bully towards me. I have forgiven them but also find it does not end there. It’s a journey. Also a journey to trust again.

    1. I bless you on the journey. There is so much betrayal you’ve had to sort through. I had a similar path. Betrayal doesn’t hurt me any less these days – in fact, the more I’m healed, the more the betrayal hurts. But I’ve always seen my Heavenly Father comes through and vindicate/restore in one way or another. Trusting Him always pays off.

  12. What a needed reminder, forgiveness frees our spirit up to heal, to move on to be and do better. I am the one that needs to do some forgiving and praying about it. too. I am not interested in the workshop at this time but will keep in mind for another time. Forgiveness allows me to let go.

    A time when I was able to forgive was when a co-worker terribly wronged me. I was hanging onto bitterness and anger and it was consuming me. They would not change so I needed to be the one to let go and forgive and daily give it to God. When I really started to do that It was such a relief to not carry that heavy burden of hurt and anger. I was able to do my job with more joy and was able to get past the issue.

  13. Manuela Aspeling

    Forgiveness is getting easier and easier as more as my focus is on Jesus and and as more as I read the Bible. It just completely changes your life. A decision needed to be made once it was made a big burden was taken of my shoulder. Forgiveness was given to others and very importantly to self. The preparations for a new beginning are almost finish and the day when I can say it is finish a new beginning or as I call it a new season will beginn. I think the most important part in all of this is to get to the understanding that you can’t change others but you can change yourself through God’s love and guidance.

  14. Thank you so much for reminding me what forgiveness is, and how it can help us move forward in a more positive and abundant way. I have done some forgiving in my life, but also have some deep rooted issues that I have yet to forgive for. My younger sister was killed in a completely preventable house fire; which was caused by a fire cracker being thrown into a room of a sleeping roommate. Unfortunately both she and her boyfriend as well as their dog perished in the fire. I have come a long way since this happened, but I have not yet forgiven those involved. We are coming up on 7 years, and our court proceedings are almost complete. I think once this happens, it may be time to find closure and look to forgive. I will never forget, but I believe that somewhere deep down I can forgive.

  15. I need to forgive myself for actions of my past that cannot be changed therefore there is really no reason to dwell in the past, but to learn and move forward.

  16. Here is a Bible verse that I found appropriate for today.
    Matthew 5:9
    “Blessed are the peacemakers, for they shall be called the sons of God.”

    It’s easy to lose faith when you are in pain, but it’s never too late to start bettering yourself. To forgive is go show love and love is the most important thing we can give our family, friends, neighbours and even strangers.

    I remember a time when a very close friend interrupted our Thanksgiving dinner. She accused my son of giving her son drugs. (She had found them in her son’s backpack and when she questioned him about them, he said that they belonged to a “friend”.) She assumed my son was the “friend”. We were all taken aback by this, but I politely told her that they weren’t my son’s. Although she was not convinced, she left our house. I was very upset when this happened, but I tried to think of it from her perspective. If I were in the same position, what would I have done? I know she was only trying to protect her son and so forgiving her was relatively easy and happened quickly. Today, we are very close friends and I support her in any way that I can.

  17. Thank you for this video. I needed this today. Watching this video I see myself as someone who is in need of discovering a more abundent life in 2022. Forgiveness is great, and sometimes it is very difficult for me. I love the way it is described as a debt, something to get rid of.
    My partner and I have been having some difficulties recently, and I’m sure the course would offer me as well as him some positive strategies.

    1. Aveline - EL Admin 2

      Forgiveness is truly the way to freedom. You will find that your heart will be softened towards them as well. I hope you are able to continue that journey and find that peace one day soon!

  18. I think we always try to make the best decisions we can, at the moment we are taking them. Giving ourselves the right to change our mind and take different decisions when we need to makes us grow.

    It’s a great thing to surround ourselves well, but we’re alone inside our mind. It’s always easier when our mind is at peace and no one else than ourself can make it happen. People around us are there to help us, not to do it for us. That’s why I think it’s so important to keep positive vibes and bonds between people.

    1. Aveline - EL Admin 2

      It definitely is true that we are responsible for our own mind and our own actions. This is why it’s so important to not build up resentment in our own hearts, and recognize the freedom that comes with forgiveness. It’s so true Janick, this process makes us grow and understand those around us better, too!

  19. I forgive everyone who I felt has wronged me in some way intentionally or not, they are forgiven now in Jesus Name, I hold no debt against them anymore. Amen

  20. This video has reminded me how important forgiveness is. I can relate to this, I have had so much hurt in my life, and I have started to heal and forgive. It is taking sometime for me to get through this.

  21. Took a session on forgiveness and went through the process of forgiving my x husband. After physical, emotional and mental abuse for 20+ years…there was a lot to forgive. One of the hardest…but most rewarding exercises I have ever done. Talk about a fresh start!!!

    1. Aveline - EL Admin 2

      Thank you for sharing Wendy – that is no small feat. I am sure its encouraging to others to hear you call it ‘rewarding’ after all is said and done!

  22. Thank you for this, as it has definitely helped me in my current situation that I have been fighting with for over a year now.
    This all now makes so much sense and I will be trying to bring this into my life as well as my family’s life going forward.

  23. Irina Artemenko

    1. Matthew 6:14-15
    “My command is this: Forgive other people when they sin against you, your heavenly Father will also forgive you. But if you do not forgive others their sins, your Father will not forgive your sins.”

    1. Aveline - EL Admin 2

      That verse encapsulates it all, doesn’t it!? What freedom those who know Christ have in His forgiveness of our sins! We ought to show the same grace to others as well.
