Ginger holds no reservations. This oil has a purpose and will fulfil it! Ginger powerfully persuades individuals to be fully present and participate in life. It teaches that to be successful in life, one must be wholly committed to it.
Ginger addresses deep patterns of victim mentality, which is evidenced by feelings of powerlessness, believing everything is outside one's control, refusing to take responsibility for life, or blaming life circumstances on other people or outside influences. Victims feel stuck as they decentralise or disown responsibility and blame others for their misfortunes.
Ginger empowers individuals in taking complete responsibility for their life circumstances. It infuses a warrior-like mentality based on integrity, personal responsibility, and individual choice. Here, individuals see themselves as the creators of their own lives. No longer waiting for outside circumstances to change, they choose their own destiny. The empowered individuals assume full responsibility and accountability for the consequences of their actions or inactions.
