Spiritual Insight…

I had a realization last month that I needed to change a few things up for the continual healing of my thyroid.  This was going to require me to continue to grow in my faith…grow in my trust of God…

Now this means all the work I have been doing the last 5 months of facing my healing fears.…and acknowledging my trust issues with God…..this means I MUST BE WILLING TO TAKE MY FAITH TO THE NEXT LEVEL!   Faith with my body and spirit and mental health…..all of it to benefit my soul!

Soooo…..when I had a friend ask me about needing an oil for a particular emotion I went to look to see which oil/blend might be to her best benefit.   What I read resonated with me…..not just for her but for me too!!!

So I prayed about it….reflected on it and realized how it all made sense!

In order for me to continue my healing journey (body-spirit) I needed:

  • Hope (in the unforeseen)
  • transformation (spiritual and physical)
  • faith (deeper than what I already had)
  • trust (in God especially)
  • awareness

I still laugh that the oil blend Immortelle…..known as the Anti-Aging blend….is the oil I have been drawn to add to my thyroid routine.   This oil blend is known physically for skin repair…but it supports adrenal health as well.

Well that makes sense to me!  My thyroid health is closely related to my adrenal health.  There has been issues with my adrenals for quite some time.  And then I read the emotional  aspects…..and I was blown away in knowing that this is the oil that God is drawing me towards!

This blend is the oil of Spiritual Insight.  This oil supports us by raising our awareness and prepares us for higher levels of spiritual transformation.

Do you have transformation that needs to take place spiritually!?  Join me in finding HOPE, FAITH, TRUST!  Sit with this….pray about this…..journal about this…..connect with me below by sharing your thoughts!!

Have you used Immortelle?  And how have you used it!?

***I’ve been rolling it across my thyroid every morning…..and I am going to start rolling it also on my adrenals!

Many hugs and blessings dear followers….friends….family….

MY GUT AND THE HOLY SPIRIT!!!

Who was St. Matthew?

What kind of change did he need to embrace in order to become a disciple of Christ’s…to have the privilege..the honor…of becoming of the the 12…an apostle!?

Today is St. Matthew’s feast day.  As I celebrate his works today, I want to embody him, I want to take all I have learned about health and nutrition not only over the course of the last 5 years…but what I have been learning even more so about my health this last 6 months, especially about my thyroid, adrenals, gut, brain.   I want to embracce it in a way I have not truly done yet.

I have loved the challenge of learning…researching…reading and doing all I needed to “do” to help my body become healthy again.  Yet, I think in the middle of it I started to geek out that I forgot what I share with others all the time: FAITH FIRST…which means staying intuned with my soul….staying in communication with the holy spirity of this mind, body, soul journey.

It’s not so much that I wasn’t trusting….and I wasn’t worrying….but I have gotten so caught up in my check off lists of supplements each day, food journals, what made me feel what, what to do what not to do, eat this, dont eat that……that it starte to become sterile.  It wasnt having LIFE.  And Life isnt a petre dish.  LIfe is beaituflly messy like a 6 month old playing in paind for the first time.

The cruise reminded me, when I dont have access to all my resources, exact food, reasearc….I still have my brain….my gut….MY AMAZING FAITH….my TRUST in GOD…..therefore my trust in my gut….my intuition.

I was reminded, when I lean heavily on the holy spirit to guide me I am able to listen/hear that gut…that intuition….because I am inutned with HIM….  Therefore I am able to trust what is right for me today, this meal, this moevent…might not be right for the next meal, next day…etc..

We all understand the concept of a 40 day fast….we are most familiar of it during lent.  Giving up something you desire (chocolate….tv….sleeping in late….alcohol…) and using it as an offering to God to sacrifice to grow in our faith.   I have written many times in the past about fasting (PLUG IN ALL THE DIFFERENT TIMES HERE)….

So what if I did 40 days in a totally new and different way, to continue to learn, grow, and love this journey of life….especially the season it is in!?

What if instead of giving up something we would normally think of…..what if I chose to live with great purpose and intuition like I have never experienced before?

What if rather than saying I am not going to food journal or log my supplements or do such and such work out program……what if from my waking moment I not only say this day is your Lord….but I breath it in and say….I TRUST YOU TO GUIDE ME……thus as I go to take my supplements and I find my self crinkling up my nose I stop and think why?  What is holding me back?  Is it me just feeling frustrated or is it a day I am not to take that particular one?  What if instead of keeping track of everything taken and eaten as I take and eat….I just sit down at the end of the day when I write in my journal and if I feel like recalling everything I took and approx times then that’s great but if I don’t that’s okay too.

What if instead of wondering if I am working out just right for my adrenals…my hormones…my thyroid….what if instead I just got up and moved, stretched, lifted…..did whatever created joy in that moment to get my metabolism wound up.   Who cares if it isn’t goal driven….like getting leaner legs or ripped abs….after all who is that glorifying?  GOD?  No!  I don’t have purpose behind being ripped….my purpose is to maintain health: mind, body, soul!

At the end of the day I have to reflect: do I want to always journal my food?  Do I want to always have to keep track of what I am taking?  Do I really need to be leaner (I am already freakin’ strong!)

It takes 40 days to make a change….this is not only scientifical it is biblical……

I am committed to change my mindset in thinking that I need to “micro manage” everything to heal my body.  When I do that I forget the simple yet most important aspect of this health journey…..stress…..when I have lists swirling in my head….my body is creating stress…..whether I realize it or not….stress means worry or anxiety or frustration or anger……all that means not trusting GOD…..and I want GOD to know I DO TRUST HIM…..I will do my part but I will also do it with calm, loving intuition….

I will remember life is like a butterfly….
we go through many many changes…metomorphesis….
sometimes painful changes…
to become the beautiful creature it was desightne…destined to be.

So what if I wake each morning and truly listen to my gut about if I should or shouldnt stick to my lsit….or if I should have a nutritional shake for a meal or even whether or not I should try a food that I have currently eliminated?

What if I listen so much to my gut…to the Holy spirty….that I am able to uncover what are my emotions, stressers linked to my helath?

what if I becoave so intuend with my body’s needs I won’t need to “have or “not have” lists…

Some of you may say…well thats a great concep but it wont work because hwat if I awant ice cream for breakfast?  But this isn the thing….I ahve learned when we are truly listening to our gut….our intuition about all of our life…and even more so recelty about food….we are able to destinguish the different between our wants, wemotions, and true needs….so if I wake one morning and my body is truly saying lets have a scoop of ice cream….then I might consider it….because I know it will be for the right reasons….and not the norm.

Once we tap into this amazing power of truly listening to the holy spirit and trusting your intuition there are no more “good” and “bad”….ther is what is right or wrong…..and this relates expecially to our soul matters but even to our nutritional amd physical needs.   Because even if I eat something that may be wrong for my body at that moment (whether I realize it or make a conscience decision)  I am able to say “I learned….from this experience…..and this is what I learned……”  There is no judgement on self….only love….understanding….compassion….mercy…..

When we focus our lives this way we are able to evaluate what is right for this moment…this day…this emotion…this experience….

It follows your body’s true inclination to lead you….guide you…to optimal health: MIND, BODY, SOUL…..

NOW THAT’S WHAT I CALL TRUSTING THE HOLY SPIRIT TO….

COME HOLY SPIRIT COME!!!

swimming in Supplements!

I think I had more fun trying to plan my packing for the cruise with my supplements rather than my clothes.  My first challenge was trying to figure out what all I needed to take, how to pack it, and to still keep it as simple and compact as possible for 8 days.  Then I remembered the traveling jewelry container I had given our darling daughter for her birthday.  She willingly allowed me to borrow it. And I remembered a toiletry bag that was the same design with windows in it.  Problem solved.

Now trying to organized what I was going to use for each pouch.  Morning vitamins.  Afternoon vitamins…evening supps….minerals…Essential Oils….powders….concoctions….etc….
All these “jewels” being carefully packed had me thinking about all the different companies, businesses, individuals who provide all sorts of supplements for all sorts of reasons….there is purpose for all of them….for all those who sell….as well as for the product itself.  Each of us are uniquely made therefore there are different formulas for each of us that will be beneficial for each of us.

I have written many times about supplements….the good…the bad….the indifferent…but I think with this journey with my thyroid, adrenals, gut….etc……I have learned WE ALL need to supplement in one form or another.  Whether it is just because of the fact that the crops of today aren’t getting the same amount of nutrients in them and we need to make up for it a bit…..or if it is because our body is needing a little extra support.
I have also learned that even though some of the supplements I am taking are mega doses of different vitamins I am deficient in….it is still supplementing.  I am having to supplement D for example because my body is deplete in it.  I am having to supplement C because my body is burning through it too fast because of my adrenals…..and the list goes on….
Thus I am seeing….becoming more away….becoming enlightened (one of the beauty’s of being a bio-hacker!) that we all need supplementation for one reason or another…..and it is all good!  
I think my past thoughts and frustrations is the biggest industry for supplementation is the push for weight loss….not health….but that is changing too……it is becoming easier to understand that even if a product is being promoted or sold for “weight loss”….once you read many of them…..many have value….and you can see with some research the ingredients in some of the blends have a purpose…..usually because there are deficiencies within a body and these blends are trying to help individuals get that balance back to feel better to then make better choices with their nutrition….with their lifestyle.
After all isn’t that what many of the amazing individuals and doctors I follow are doing?  Many of them approach their audiences health from the weight loss perspective to get them to learn how to make healthier choices.  Why do they take that approach?  because it sells.  It is what the public, the people want.  Is it so wrong?  No.  After all isn’t that what we all do, if we are wise?  You want your kiddo to do something  you know is going to be beneficial to them….don’t you get to their level..approach it in a way that speaks to them….and get them to understand.   
Because of my bio-hacking….I am able to evolve, learn, grow, and see the great value in the word supplement rather than a dirty word….a crutch.  Who knows….maybe it was my own past misuse of supplements that skewed my mindset, my judgement of the word, of the products.
And when I see amazing people changing lives….helping people to understand that their life matters….their health matters….and how it is all so closely related…..how our mind body soul experience is entwined.

I have an amazing, dear friend who discovered a healthier lifestyle because of supplements…..they turned on a switch within her….so much so that she now promotes and sells these same products.   What I admire the most about her, is I don’t think it is so much about the products for her but about changing lives….about getting people to see that when they are taking care of their physical body they are trying to get back in tuned with their spiritual body.   She is an amazing example of how to continually push ourselves to be better versions of ourselves so we can shine and be amazing examples of living a whole life….mind, body, soul……

And if that means a little or a lot of supplements….well bring it on….

Because I know my supplements help me be super powered…..they encourage my body to be where it wants to be….where it needs to be…..they are helping me armor my body and mind each and every day so I can focus on my spiritual armor and be that soldier Christ needs me to be….

Therefore I may be swimming in supplements but I am also super-powered by them!!!

How do your supplements help you!?
