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….

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!?

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!
