There is a lot of hype going on about the Novel CoronaVirus known as Covid-19. I wanted to discuss how to protect from viruses like Covid-19 and also the flu which is also going around. I find I always feel better when I am prepared. Aromatherapy can be quite effective in treating and preventing illness along with being supportive and healing while sick. I did have the flu a month ago. It was brought home by my daughter who caught it at a school fair and she proceeded to sneeze directly into my face uncontrollably. I knew in that moment regardless of what I used or did I would catch it so I used aromatherapy to support us and prevent us from getting any secondary infection.
1) Wash hands thoroughly and often with good old soap and water
2) Make your own hand sanitizer with Vodka, Colloidal Silver, Aloe Vera, and essential oils that are antiviral
3) Make a cleaning and disinfecting spray using vinegar and water with essential oils and cleanse surfaces, etc multiple times a day in your home, work space etc
4)Diffusers are our best weapon for killing airborne viruses and treating respiratory illnesses. I have many diffusers and I recommend using them at this time in your home to kill virus bugs and support the immune system.
**please be mindful of your pets and children when using essential oils. They should always be diluted and diffusers should not be located directly near your pets especially with the super bug killing essential oils as they are harsher. If someone is ill and you are using a diffuser with the super bug killer it is best to keep your pets out of this room. Pets will also walk away from a diffuser if it is to strong for them. Just be mindful.**
A diffuser works best if it turns on every 15mins with a timer and diffuses for a minute. You would need to get a timer for most diffusers.
Here is my list of essential oils and you can order therapeutic practitioner grade oils from www.planttherapy.com and www.dreamingearth.com
I like Sovereign Silver Colloidal Silver
Super Bug Killer oils a little goes a long way and never use undiluted:
Expectorant and Antiviral Oils:
Tea Tree (multipurpose bug killer)
Oils that soothe an inflamed respiratory tract:
Oils that support secondary bacterial infections and kill bacteria:
**Eucalyptus, Lavender, Cedarwood, Tea Tree, Lemon , Benzoin are safer less harsh oils to use around small children and Elderly.
If I am going to be dealing with a super bug I will have the harsh oils on hand and will use them safely and responsibly. When used safely
and responsibly they actually work most effectively and typically with no contraindications or negative impact.
Do not ingest essential oils they are 75-100x stronger than the plant, fruit, herb they are derived from. If you take anything internally keep it to herbs and supplements.

Read this recent article as it appeared in The Herald News about our exciting expansion:
SWANSEA — Blending her business and spiritual sides, Jessica Kozak has been expanding Soul Purpose, a haven for the soul, for years in the Swansea area.
Yoga, starting on Jan. 6, is her newest offering to compliment a wide spanning spiritual menu that dabbles in everything from meditation to psychic development.
“It’s a holistic educational center, and a wellness center,” Kozak said. “We’re really excited.”
Her physical location at LaPointe Plaza, 1225 GAR Highway, will also change. But Soul Purpose won’t go far. It will be in a bigger space in the same plaza.
“It’s been exciting and scary,” said Kozak, who started her business in 2005 in an in-law apartment in Dighton. “We’ve grown so much. It challenges you to take a chance on your vision and yourself.”
From Dighton, she moved to a site in Somerset, which she “outgrew in a year,” and then to a 750-foot location in her current plaza. She moved to a 1,400-foot unit about six years ago, and when construction is finished, she’ll take up a new storefront with 2,200 square feet inside.
“I helped design the new space,” Kozak said.
A larger room for regular yoga classes will be part of the addition.
“I’ve always wanted to have yoga,” Kozak said. “There was a need for it. I’m excited to offer it.”
She said classes will mainly focus on traditional Hatha and Vinyassa yoga disciplines and will include stretching, exercise and meditation for all levels.
“We’re all shapes and sizes here,” Kozak said.
With a background in banking and a degree in both business and psychology, Kozak brings her two worlds together for her clients’ benefit.
Offerings at Soul Purpose include energy medicine, massage, reiki, meditation, aromatherapy, acupuncture, generational healing, psychic development, mystical oracle readings, reflexology, sound therapy, quantum healing, plus classes and trainings in some of these disciplines, and more.
There will also be an interfaith chapel at the new site.
While Kozak, an ordained minister, has a “devotion to Mother Mary,” she said the chapel is non-denominational and available to people of all, or no, faiths.
“I’m more expansive,” Kozak said. “I work with people whatever their belief system.”
She’s also a spiritual medium and said she’s been intuitive her whole life, seeing angels and helping to interpret their meaning for others.
“They’ve been a consistent presence in my life,” Kozak said. “They really try to help us get back on track. They can come as the voice of intuition.”
Bridging the holistic world to the mental health and medical communities, Kozak, a clinical aromatherapist, works with physicians, nurses, dentists and others.
“I bring professionalism to the spiritual world,” Kozak said.
Kozak said she’s excited to be growing Soul Purpose once again and expanding spiritual services.
“Sometimes, it’s surreal to see your vision manifest into reality,” she said. “I hope it inspires others to further their dreams. Nothing is impossible.”
A free introductory yoga class will be offered on Friday, Jan. 3, from 6:30 to 8 p.m. A regular yoga schedule starts Monday, Jan. 6.
An open house will be planned when the new site is open in roughly February or March. For now, Soul Purpose will continue at its present location, 1225 GAR Highway.

VLOG - Energy Medicine Program For Reiki Masters Module 1 And 2 At The Soul Purpose In October - November 2019
A line in the book Body Centered Psychotherapy that still moves me is:
“It is most useful when we commit to moving beyond our personal limits – beyond the insane sources of useless suffering – to the full expression of who we are and what is possible.”
After this sentence Kurtz goes on to talk about how our core material goes deep, that “organizing beliefs are held firmly and defended strongly”. He writes about how trying to force change to these beliefs would surely fail. This really resonated with me personally. I have studied different healing modalities over the past eighteen years. On some level I was searching for my own way of rewriting some of my limiting beliefs. Through the years I learned there really wasn’t just one “miracle modality”. I resonated with some more than others, but found that the miracle is truly within oneself.
The biggest road block can be looking at your own feelings, beliefs, the events and memories that have shaped and organized your life and how you respond to it. The key for me was evaluating this in a heart centered space. Being able to move from a cerebral dissection of my life to truly feeling it without criticism and judgment towards myself and others.
I graduated from a Healer Training Program and Energy Medicine School in 2011. It is founded by Rhys Thomas. One of the big aspects of this training was learning about Energetic Profiles. He termed it the Life Purpose Profiling System and it is based on the work of Dr. Alexander Lowen and Wilhelm Reich. Rhys threw his own expanded vision and study of it into it and coined it The Rhys Method/Life Purpose Profiling System. It combines the psychological profile of personality with the energetic and physical characteristics of a person to create a comprehensive system. We were taught this model to help ourselves by using the profiles as a map to help navigate our lives, to use as a tool to deal with problems and the stresses that are in all our lives. Each of the energetic profiles has a shadow side (defense) and light side. We are thrown into the shadow side as part of our training as we need to experience and accept this aspect of ourselves before we can embrace our light side fully. This method was so freeing and healing for me. These profiles are not seen as judgements but more of a way to discern the defenses that we are experiencing in our lives, and organizing our life by. Once I had a deeper understanding of my own profile, I was able to really dive in deeper and journey into the abyss within myself of what I like to call “Loyalties to Dysfunction”. Some term this as Vows, Limiting Beliefs or Patterns. I see it as a Loyalty to Dysfunction as when looking at where the belief or behavior originated, I would often find it originated as a way of keeping me safe. I created a loyalty to a behavior that kept me safe, or got me praise, or love even if the behavior in the long run caused self-harm. Some were passed down from generations before me and I was expected to keep it going because that was how it always was.
Working with my personal devotion to self-healing, I have found it is the whole process that needs to move along. The experiences that created your beliefs need to go from being talked about, to being felt, to being studied, to being expressed, to being understood. From my own experience in life in psychotherapy, holistic healing, personal relationships, my traditional psychology degree, I can see a pattern of how “just” talking sometimes doesn’t get you far. A lot of times talking can keep someone in their wounds, or you may even meet the person in their wounds and that is where the relationship will stay, or that is where the person will stay. .
A few years ago, I sought out my counselor again as I still had issues and resentments that kept creeping up on me that was really interfering with my self-esteem and self-worth. I had done a ton of energy work, body work, and self-study. I had made a lot of progress, but couldn’t seem to shake these deep seated feelings. This counselor was not a holistic counselor. I do feel he is deeply intuitive, and he is also very spiritual. He asked about my spiritual beliefs and incorporated this into my work. Going to see this counselor shifted me. I am forever grateful. He did use hypnosis on me to do inner child work. He hypnotized me and brought me into the future to see the Jessica who is free of any issues and full of joy and peace. He had me embrace her and take in those qualities. He then brought me back to meet my inner child. I was greeted by an angry child, who was deeply hurt and wounded. It was here I had a deep realization to the origin of some of my loyalties to dysfunction. My Inner Child’s self-esteem was low and she was angry. She was tired and felt like she couldn’t let her guard down. I went over and picked her up onto my lap. I told her it was okay and that all was well now. I embraced her and she melted into me. She knew that the adult “Jessie” would handle life now and she could at long last rest. This work was so incredible to my healing and being able to let go.
“The Child and it's experiences built the world view and the self-image. The child was the map maker. So, in contacting and working with the child, you have the possibility of changing those maps and the person who is now using them.”
I realize that all of our defenses, and the way we organize our experience is rooted in our inner child. We must all be one big group of children interacting in the world.
The purpose of this blog is to encourage each of you to be fearless in your pursuit to your own healing. It isn’t an easy journey. You get afraid, you avoid, you procrastinate. Sometimes you need a break, sometimes you get aggravated and negative and whine about why you don’t need to do it. What matters is that you don’t quit and you keep your focus. It is a lifetime's journey but one that is so worth it. You have more peace in life. You have an awareness and an appreciation of how you became the person are today. You also will understand that you have a unique purpose in your life. All of us including those that are psychotherapists, healers, spiritual teachers, etc. all have loyalties to dysfunction. Not one of us is singled out. It really is just choosing to look at it with an open heart and loving all of yourself even the parts that have limited you.
I recommend these book links if you are interested in working with your inner child to heal and also if you are interested in understanding the Profiles:

We are all intuitive Beings. As a result of living in a Patriarchal Society, we have forgotten how to trust our intuition. In the past people were looked down upon, scorned, or even killed for using their intuitive abilities. It is no wonder that it is something that each of us has within but have ignored.
Within each of us is our own Divine Intuitive language. Not one of us is the same which means we receive our information slightly differently. Some of us may be more Clairvoyant or Clear Seeing, Clairsentient or Clear Feeling, or Clairaudient or Clear Hearing. Some of us are more primary in one area and through working and practicing you can develop abilities in other areas.
Intuition is something that we all have. Some of us seem to have been born more wired to be psychic or Intuitive, but that doesn’t mean that people who aren’t are lacking this ability. It just means it is out of practice. I have been Intuitive since a small child. I am primarily Clairsentient and Clairvoyant. It was perceived by my loved ones that I was Hyper-Sensitive. It was looked upon as a handicap or something unfortunate. I owned this belief and worked very hard to shut down my intuition. It re-surfaced again in my late teens and I was forced to look at it, and it has been in the past 20 years that I truly stepped out fully into my Intuitive abilities.
I am now offering a course called Tapping Into Your Divine Intuition which is based on my own experiences. in the course, I share what I have learned about how I receive information and work with my Intuition. While this may be completely different from person to person, you can use this class as a tool to tap into your own intuitive power, as it touches upon the similar gifts we all share, and how to use them.
Intuition speaks to us in a symbolic language at times. In order to develop your intuition you need to TRUST, and PRACTICE. It is like going to the gym and lifting weights. Your muscles start to get more defined and bigger! It is important to feel safe when you practice so participating with family members, friends, or Intuitive Circles is very helpful. For me, I started out by practicing my intuitive abilities while doing Reiki. It helped me learn to trust what I was receiving and not thinking it over too much. After a while I noticed more and more people were coming for a reading during their treatment rather than a treatment! So that is when I felt nudged to put out Angelic Guidance Readings and I haven’t looked back since.
You can use your own Intuitive language to receive guidance and wisdom in how to recreate your life, make decisions in alignment with your soul purpose, how to avoid sabotaging situations, and to recognize when you are in the right place. This is how your Intuition works for you! You can offer it to others to help them see their own divine guidance, but primarily it should be used firstly for yourself.
Here is an outline of topics and techniques addressed in the course:
Guidelines for Tapping into your Intuition:
1) Shielding techniques for protection.
2) Grounding and centering yourself through meditation.
3) Communicating – Ways to receive information from your intuition.
4) Ways to Communicate –Writing, Oracle cards, holding personal effects or human touch.
5) Closing the Session – How to cleanse your energy, bring your awareness back to your body and give thanks to the higher powers who guided you.

The word Nurture means the process of caring for and encouraging the growth or development of someone or something. This word has come up consistently for me the past 15 years. Questions from healers, therapists....”Jessica do you Nurture yourself?” “How do you Nurture yourself?” You are a nurturer and must nurture yourself!” The one thing I knew to my core was that I did indeed nurture others. It comes natural to me. I nurture people, pets, plants, crystals, and the earth. Nurturing myself did not always come second nature to me. It felt foreign, and uncomfortable, and wrong. I also lied to myself and said, "Why of course I nurture myself. I get my nails done, I do things for myself, blah blah blah blah blahhhhhhhhhhh." If you asked me a year ago if I understood what nurturing myself was I would have said I did. I understood the concept. I even believed I nurtured myself. I now realize that I never really understood it within the core of my being until this past year.
I have personally been on an active spiritual journey for the past 23 years. I have made a career in working as a psychic medium and energy healer. I nurture people for a living and it gives me immense joy and a sense of fulfilled purpose in my life. Working in the realm of healing has also called to me to always search within and always work to better myself, learn and awaken, become more aware, then to go forth and share what I learned. I now take ownership of my limiting belief around nurturing and loving myself. It isn't that I never loved or nurtured myself at all....No.... what happened was throughout my life when I acknowledged that I needed to prioritize my self-care, I would somehow sabotage myself. Sometimes the sabotage would happen right away, sometimes it would happen 6 months or a year later in the form of old patterns creeping to the forefront and slowly taking over my newly loving patterns. Sneaking up on me like a slow poison so I didn't quite notice. The triggers usually were stressful events in my life that awakened fear in me. It stirred up my inner children who somehow freaked out and unconsciously I would start to sabotage myself as a way to protect me resulting in my creating of self-defeating behaviors. These behaviors were ways I would not nurture myself. It would be something as simple as starting to forget to take my vitamins and supplements that assist my body. It would be forgetting to pack my lunch for work and not eating then eating too much when I got home. It would be not making time for myself to go to the gym even though I actually enjoyed it and felt better when I did go. It would be eating foods that had soy, msg, or corn in it which my body has told me repeatedly it is sensitive to and doesn't like it. Other ways I would self-sabotage is by not honoring healthy boundaries in my life. I would often attract people or situations where I would be called to set boundaries for myself or confront unhealthy situations. Then when I would attempt to confront the dysfunction, a great fear would rise up that I wouldn't understand. The fear felt like it would kill me There is no other way to describe its crippling effect. It would knock out of me all my awareness and spiritual teachings and lead me to learned self-defeating behaviors such as avoidance, denial, anxiety, depression, people-pleasing disguised as peace-making, and shoving down my feelings and shutting my mouth. These behaviors were an insult to my core-self. A complete lie of who I really am which is why if felt so terrible. It made me sick and inside the real me was screaming to be fully unleashed. As a result of it making me feel terrible I tried to nurture the pain away with food and self-sabotage.
It was a year ago this came to a head in my life. Without getting deeply into personal life matters, I reached my breaking point and it was the best thing that ever happened to me. Forty years of ignoring myself, sabotaging myself, having times where the real me surfaced and knowing how the true me felt then going back into hiding was just to much for me and thank goodness it was! I was brought to a point where I had to stop and look at myself and why I have allowed certain relationships in my life to have so much power over me. Why I never spoke up and allowed it, Why I couldn't let it continue. I had to pull back and take a huge time out! I didn't realize at the time but this was an act of love and self-nurturance at the time. I made the choice to disengage as a way to stop a pattern and pay attention to what was happening. I also knew I needed to work on myself, and my own strength before I could address this situation. It was, of course, not received well. In this process I have been supported by some, ignored by some, spoken about and whispered about and defriended by some who haven't spoken to me directly nor taken the time to want to see why I made the choice I did. They heard what they heard and made a judgment and that was that. I have been indirectly approached by some in a roundabout judgmental and manipulative way intended to guilt me and play into those old self-deprecating and self-defeating thoughts and behaviors. A few approached me directly trying to understand but showing more concern for how it was impacting the situation than how I was really feeling or what was going on with me. I had to process all this as well. I thank God for the people who stayed by me unconditionally, supporting me, holding me up, pushing me forward, taking the time to let me be heard and feel like what I was going through was important to them. Setting their own agendas aside and helping me process. These are my true soul friends here on this earth and I am so eternally grateful. I had to process through it all even my feelings surrounding the people I felt betrayed or hurt by, or who I had to retreat from, I now understand things better and don't blame them or dwell on them. I just realize that is what happens when Energy shifts....SHIFT HAPPENS!
In the past year I have prioritized myself and my health physically, emotionally, spiritually, and mentally. Some may have perceived that I've done this it at the expense of others, I feel the real expense was the price I paid in the past by losing touch and ignoring my inner self at this expense. If there is no me then I can't be the Mother I need and want to be, the Healer I want to be, I can't be what I need for myself, my boyfriend, etc. After a whole year my patterns have changed, I feel a load lighter and my body is changing, I make time for myself, I am no longer afraid to look at my feelings and stand up for myself. I also can forgive myself for the part I have played and for losing myself in the process. Finding myself again was the best part and knowing I can keep the real me too! As I keep moving forward one day at a time it is still a process, a healing process, a spiritual process, a mental process, an emotional process. I feel stronger and feel I can move forward. As for my relationships I need to always honor my boundaries and myself, keep my spine strong so to speak; exuding out good will, forgiveness, and grace. Allowing my reactions and triggers to be transformed and accepting it all. Not having an agenda or attachment to how things should be or need to be or that others need to understand. We are all entitled to our perceptions and our perceptions are real to us. If they torture us then we need to take a warrior's path, taking the machete and cutting through the jungle of weeds and find, or create a new path. When the new path is created, it makes it easier for those needing guidance to find their path and maybe even go further.
