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!!!

FINDING ME!

I have been pondering the last week about my desires for writing…my desires for blogging…my dreams and passions…

I’ve been really reflecting even more about what creates joy for me….what makes me happy….and owning who I AM!!!

I am a woman who loves to read.
I am a woman who loves to learn.
I am a woman who loves to paint.
I am a woman who loves to write.
I am a woman who loves to spend time with my daughter.
I am a woman who loves and adores her husband.
I am a woman who loves to just be.

My health for the last 9 months has had me really reflecting on all the things I love.  It has also had me reflect on all the things that I don’t necessarily love.

I have realized that somehow I have been slowly losing who I am?!  Kind of like Julia Roberts in “Run away Bride”….she didn’t know what kind of eggs she liked.  She always changed with each man, each friend, she was lost with who she was.

As I have been trying to figure out what is going on with my health: fatigue, unexplained weight gain, extreme moods, can’t sleep, can’t move, and sooooo much more….my health issues have actually helped me FIND ME again.

Somehow over the last 5 years of amazing blessings, challenges, discoveries, growths….I started to please too much and not nurture me….this is not good for me and not a good example to my daughter.

I found a fabulous nutrition coach who is going to help me figure out things and be my advocate with doctors and I feel even with family and friends.

Why family and friends? When a person is trying to nurture and care for themselves, family and friends can be the hardest to please or they can be the most critical, especially if you are trying to figure things out in an unconventional way.

Which brings me to…I found an amazing doctor who even after reading over all my stuff that has been going on for the last 9 months or so….he took one look at me and said he strongly believes I have a thyroid issue.  He said sooo much more but the gist is here was a man who believed me…who is willing to fight with and for me to get to the root of my health so I can feel whole and complete again!

I have learned even through all this I AM ENOUGH.   I will not let my frustrations with self or others sway me to not listen to my gut brain, my inner wisdom, my soul!

There are things about aging that are normal…But I love what Dr. Christiane Northrup says….how if you are feeling so icky….if you have aches, pains, etc….it’s not normal…we should feel alive….it is probably our hormones off…and there are many things we CAN do to help it…correct it….and heal it…

Thus as I am learning to heal…grow…and learn through all of this most recent challenge I have discovered I am going to be even truer to myself….

I will blog…write….when I want to…when it feels right….when it brings joy….not because of a sense of obligation….

I will get on facebook…twitter…pinterest….when I want to….when it feels right….when it’s not taking away from me…or family….not because everyone else does it and I feel peer pressured to do it….

I will not feel guilty that I am not doing enough for my daughter…my family….because what we do works for our family….I will not compare…I do believe I AM ENOUGH!!

Some of the wonderful things I have been learning about my health….is that my spiritual fasting has actually been very healthy for me.  I have allowed others around me to influence me in thinking that it wasn’t so good for me….so the last year or so I wasn’t doing any absolutes.  And here I am finding how it has not only been beneficial for me spiritually but also nutritionally.  But again…no more feeling bullied by others opinions and thoughts…I AM AND WILL DO WHAT IS RIGHT FOR ME!

Women….the more you love, nurture, and care for you….the more you are able to love, nurture, and care for others!
