Surprises on Saturday!

I absolutely love it when I am getting ready to plan out my Christmas shopping list and I receive amazing emails with great deals!!

Some years I am in a shop shop shop sort of mood….other years I am in a DIY mood….and there are some years I am just about gift cards!!!  LOL….

This year I have been looking at some of my oils and goodies and thinking I really want to create some specialized goody bags and home made things with the oils.

img_3937

I’m thinking bath salts, seasoned salts, lip balms, teas, baked goods, and so much more!

Well this morning I opened my email and saw that doTERRA has brought us their amazing BOGO deals again!!

This kicks off on MONDAY :)!!!

What’s super exciting is these deals are open to everyone but each day it is for 24-hours only and then a new special is released.

So this upcoming week with each BOGO…..I will share with you how I use that oil in my home and for my family’s whole health!  I will even share some great gift giving ideas for that day’s BOGO!

img_3936

If you don’t already have a doTERRA account now is truly the time to maximize on some great deals!

When you start your oils journey you want to really think about who you start with!  Are they going to support you, educate you, provide you with wellness overviews and coaching!!

I will serve you and care for you!

Okay enough about BOGO’S now lets remember Thanksgiving is just 5 days away!!!

img_3935

What are you feeling most thankful about today!? 

I am feeling super grateful for family.  My mom texted me last night.  It said “keep dad in prayers, at hospital, water on heart.”

Now I am not a worrier….but it wasn’t a text I could just say “okay”…..and go to bed!  Nope I asked if I could call….she said yes.

We visited…..I even got to visit with my dad……and all was good.  I was able to go to sleep knowing all was truly okay.   But it did have me reflect…..time is too fragile and too precious to take for granted.

I don’t take time and life for granted, but I know I can get caught up in the passion of living my life with my family and friends locally that I can be a “out of sight out of mind” sort of person.

This text and phone call also had me reflect on how some of my healing, health journey means I need to not avoid conversations or questions that truly need to be said or asked.

So I am Thankful for prompts like last night to remind me time is precious; don’t waste or avoid saying and doing the things that are super important!

What are you thankful for?!

Sit…..pray……journal…..tap and oil up!!

Blessings,

Kelly 😉

 

Fertile Friday

At the age of 15 I started to experience severe pains in my lower abdomen for 1 -2 days about every 40-50 days.

By the time I was 20 my cycles never were consistent.  They could be 20 days but usually 38-45 days.  There were many times that they were 60-70 days.

I had/have PCOS and didn’t know it.

Over 20 years ago there wasn’t much out there on PCOS.

img_3925

The answers to women were to mask the pain by being put on the pill.  But all this did was create an unnatural environment within our body.  It wasn’t working with the nature, the beauty of how we were made.  How God designed us.

I knew my body was try to tell me something but I didn’t know what.  I knew the pill was not the answer but being in the military and the severity of my cramps getting worse and worse and my need to be in bed during the first 2-4 days of my cycles, sometimes more…..well the military wasn’t going to have it.  So the pressure was put on me to be on the pill.

So with great counsel, reflection, and prayer……I gave into the pressure.

This led me on a 5 year journey of my fertility being suppressed…..ignored……disrespected……and neglected.

You see the PCOS was actually my body telling me how to heal it…..how to help it……but the pill muzzled it.

When my husband decided to convert to Catholicism the priest who was his adviser was an amazing teacher and mentor.  In the course of my husband’s learning the beauty of Catholicism this priest and I had amazing conversations about the beauty of our sexuality.

It came up about my health issues and how/why I was on the pill.  I also expressed how things were actually getting worse even with being on the pill.  Hindsight my body was try to speak out over the muzzle of the pill.

This wise amazing priest asked me if he could help me learn a way to elevate the pain without the pill would I be open to try?

I was absolutely in favor of this!

He introduced me to several different natural family planning methods.  They each tracked and monitored my fertility and hormonal health in different ways.

I had no idea that NFP was about more than just knowing when you should or shouldn’t have intercourse as a married couple.  I learned during that time how I was able to monitor my hormones to see exactly what was going on.  To understand that there is a true beautiful dance with the two main hormones of estrogen and progesterone and when they are not in harmony the whole body gets out of whack.

I also learned how certain foods trigger things like PCOS.

I learned through this process just how beautiful our fertility is…..how God designed our cycles to actually be protective and restorative for us.  As well as life giving…..not only physically but spiritually as well.

I learned that monitoring our fertility isn’t just for couples to communicate if they want to achieve or avoid a pregnancy it is also for truly monitoring our physical health……therefore it is something that all young girls should chart as soon as they start their menses.  It teaches us an appreciation for our body and how to protect it and honor it.

So the pain did become less and in the process of this my husband and I started to actively try to conceive.  When it didn’t just happen month after month…..we then knew there was more to this….

Again this is where the method we were using became the most amazing blessing……since we were using a method that was me monitoring my cervical mucus…..we were able to discover I was estrogen dominant……which allowed us to understand that I probably was also insulin resistant…..which meant my diet as well as my DNA was a factor……we were able to start connecting the dots…..there were more dots to connect that we didn’t know to connect until years later.

In the process of me falling in love with this fertility charting method system I decided to become a practitioner for a short period of time.  I was able to teach and guide other couples to learn about monitoring their cycles.  To empower them to make that conscious decision of when they are ovulating to either engage or abstain from sex depending on the place they were at in their life journey.

Fertility tracking created communication in a way that was deeper and more rewarding not only for me and my husband but for all the couples I taught.  And for all the couples who continue to learn about it.

What I learned with my PCOS is that grains, diary, and sugar are truly triggers.  Stress is a huge trigger.

With PCOS we tend to be deficient in certain essential minerals and vitamins so supplementing is a must.

I’m at a different stage now with my fertility……I had to have a hysterectomy several years back due to the discovery after another miscarriage that my PCOS wasn’t the only thing that had been causing my infertility but that I had a severely bicornate uterus.  There was also a lot of scar tissue inside and outside of my uterus due to the ruptured cysts of PCOS and scar tissue because of an emergency appendix removal when I was 15!

The doctor I had after my miscarriage was truly surprised I had even been able to carry my only daughter to full term.  Hindsight again is always so beautiful because it explained so much of why that pregnancy had so many complications.

The problem with my uterus now was that it was becoming diseased, it was doing things, and experiencing things that were not natural and causing much more havoc than my PCOS ever did.

So now I was at a dilemma of how do I monitor my hormones without a period?

So whether a woman naturally goes into menopause or has had to enter into it prematurely there are ways we can monitor.

We still do have some cervical mucus….we can monitor it……charting even how we are “feeling” can help give indicators, what we are craving……and taking our temp is super helpful…..

Ironically 20 years ago taking my temp wasn’t helpful…..but I now know why (another amazing hindsight moment)……our thyroid is also responsible for our temp……so if our thyroid is off then our temp is going to be off…..

So monitoring your fertility also helps you monitor your thyroid!!!

I saw the beauty and power in this knowledge so many years ago…..so much so that I knew when my daughter entered into menses several years back I started her charting……

I love watching her be empowered with the beauty and knowledge of understanding her body’s physical and spiritual needs.  I love how she is able to anticipate when her cycle is going to start and know how to honor it with self care and love.

I love how she recognizes the spiritual component to her fertility which deepens her love and respect for her body and the theology that it is telling us!

She has recently been showing signs that PCOS could be in her present or future……but since she is very aware of what can contribute to it and turn those genes on……she is very consciences of avoiding grains, dairy, and sugar.  She uses lots of ClaryCalm…..one of her favorite oils for her cycle time……she even combines certain oils to create a heating pad type of effect on her gut area when we can’t be at the house with a heat pad.  There are certain supplements she uses that she knows help keep her body balanced.

Do you have challenges with your fertility?

Would you like to learn more about the beauty of charting your cycles?

There are so many great resources, apps, books, and educators to help with all of this.

I have included some great links throughout this post.  They are amazing resources for you to learn more!!!

Lots have love, hugs, and prayers,

Kelly 🙂

“I Told You So!”

How many of you LOVE this statement!?!?!

I don’t know about you but it just makes me feel all sorts of warm and fuzzy inside when a person says this to me!  It really encourages me to want to open up to them and feel vulnerable.  It causes me to stop and think oh yes this person REALLY LOVES ME because “they told me so!”…..

NOT…..

Okay so I know that was all a bit passive aggressive…lol….but there is a point…

We live in a world where we are bombarded with EVERYONE’s opinion and EVERYONE is willing to speak (with their one mouth)….but NOT LISTEN (with their TWO ears!)…..

Recently a situation took place in my life that really rocked my world for about 20 minutes….but once it was all said and done….I realized the reason I was so shook up was….

  • Not because I was going to have to deal with the work the situation caused…
  • Not because of all the tapping and oiling up I was going to have to do to eleviate the negative experience….
  • Not because it happened at all….

No what rocked my world that truly brought me to tears was the FEAR of HEARING:

I TOLD YOU SO!!!

img_3911

I DID NOT want to hear those words come from people who claim to love me, in a time where I felt most emotional and vulnerable, when I NEEDED LOVE AND COMPASSION MOST!

What many of us don’t realize and don’t think about when those words are said is….

  • The person receiving that negative statement already is internally beating themselves up about whatever it is.
  • They already are reassessing how something could have been done differently.
  •  They are trying to process and heal possibly from an experience.
  • And they need love and support more than ever. 
  • They need to feel safe not scrutinized.

Now since we can’t prevent others, especially “loved” ones from using hurtful verbiage toward us we can do the next best things:

  • We can pray.
  • We can journal.
  • We can tap.
  • We can use specific oils.
  • And we can forgive: them and ourselves!

All of these release the negative emotions surrounded from the experience as well as the hurtful words.  It allows us to not hold those negative emotions, negative currents of energy to get locked into our physical body to cause any physical harm.

So what DID I DO!?

When the incident occurred the first emotion that popped into my head I started tapping on it right there at the location.  I didn’t care what people thought as they observed me.  What’s awesome about tapping is in a public situation you don’t have to do the full formula you can tap on specific spots.

After I tapped a round with my prayer, I selected an oil to help facilitate the tapping as well as bring my system back into balance and focus on the task at hand.

Through the next round of tapping… that is when I discovered my true fears from the situation….I was then able to concentrate my next round of tapping with that intention.

img_2812

As we enter into the Holiday’s, Thanksgiving being next week, there may be situations like this that come up.  And we may feel like our boundaries are being infringed on.

Because honestly I think….”I TOLD YOU SO”….is a lack of respect of boundaries….as well as unloving.

So since some people don’t know how to NOT VOMIT their junk on us…..WE MUST SET HEALTHY BOUNDARIES….to protect ourselves….to protect our health and well being….OUR SPIRIT!

I recently posted on Facebook and on my YouTube about boundaries…..to learn more and to even do a round of tapping with me check them out here/below!!!

Empower yourself today, this week, next week, always…..to set healthy boundaries so you don’t have to fearing hearing the dreaded: I TOLD YOU SO!

As always….pray….journal….tap….and oil up!

Blessings, prayers and hugs…

Victorious Veteran’s

Every year our church celebrates Veteran’s day by asking those who have served to stand and be recognized and prayed over.

img_3890

August 1992 I stepped on to a plane to enter a season of life that I had no idea would bring me to my hubby.

For 2 months I completed more push-ups, sit ups, running, marching, and bunk drills than I can possibly count….or even keep track of.

I will admit there were times in the past that I never really thought about what it meant to have served in the military.  To me it was a means to the end.  I had grown up in a very small town.  There were so many factors but the point being is I saw the military as truly the best option for me to be the best version of myself.

While I was in the Navy there were days I really hated it.  I wondered what was I thinking.  It was also a time in my life when I continued to received more sexual harassment than I care to count.  BUT…..there truly were amazing blessings that took place.

First, I met my husband.   Because of him I was able to vocalize my wounds, my rape, my abuses, and so much more.

When I met my husband I felt safe.  I finally felt like I could truly be 100% myself.

img_3888

Boot camp alone was healing.  It had been that summer that the penetration rape had taken place.  For me boot camp was about “beating” the emotions out of me.  Or better yet stuffing it all in and becoming as tough as I could possibly be, therefore “I could never be hurt again!”

What I really learned from my service in the military was another way to be an intentional disciple!

When you serve in the military it is NOT about you……IT’S ABOUT THE GREATER GOOD!  You make sacrifices, you put your desires aside to do for others, you have days you really want to throw in the towel but you know others are depending on you so you stand up taller and dig deep to show up and be all you were made to be aka hopefully be the best version of yourself!

And most of all you truly learn what it means to do team work and to be a leader!!!

So today I am able to reflect on my military service with humbling pride.  I don’t reflect on it anymore as “ugh” or “oh yeah I did that….”  No today I reflect and am so very grateful for my years of service.  Years that formed my early adult years.  Years that taught me I was much stronger than I ever would have thought.  And years that introduced me to my amazing husband.

Today I am also reflecting on all the men and women who have made amazing sacrifices for their country.  Who have said yes to provide us the freedoms we sometimes don’t even thing about…..and no to so many of their own desires.

This week reflect on your own dreams….your own sacrifices…..your own ways you serve: your family, your community, your Lord!

Remember to pray, journal, tap, and oil up!!!

Many blessings….prayers….hugs…

Kelly 🙂

Balance: Retreat & Restore

“The soul loves moderation in all things. Whenever the human body lacks measure, and eat and drinks or something like that unbalances it, the powers of the soul are wounded… So in all things let people maintain a proper balance”

– Hildegard of Bingen

I fell in love with St. Hildegard years ago. I knew she, along with a few other amazing females Saints would be the patron saints of my business and ministry.

I am reflecting tonight on all I am going to grow and learn about as I prepare for an adventure that will take me out of pocket for almost 3 weeks. I can’t wait to share more here.

What I’m especially excited about this adventure is how it is going to allow me to reflect, meditate, pray, and in sort of way retreat to focus on some of my personal and professional goals.

I’m going to take the opportunity to detox my mind, body, and soul. To detox from the clutter and chatter and unnecessary. To get back to simplicity of reflecting on what is truly my why and next steps of being that intentional disciple of life for me, my family, friends, everyone….

What is my why?

How can I make a difference?

One connection at a time.

One life at a time.

One drop at a time!

So I will be silent here for almost 3 weeks and will be back to share all I reflect on by November 3rd!

What is your why?

Do you need to unplug to rebalance your mind, body, soul health?

Blessings,

Kelly 😘

October: It takes guts!

I feel like I’ve been so remiss with coming here and sharing….but I realize I have to give myself grace because when we don’t give ourselves grace well it can mess with our physical health: especially our GUT! But more on that at the bottom of this post…spoiler alert…it has to do with some great freebies and deals this month 🙌🙌🙌!

The last time I shared here it was during doTERRAs Dream convention.

It was so powerful, inspiring, and confirming!

It reminded me the seed God had planted in my heart years ago about empowering women.

It inspired me to continue to be ME as I show up in helping others. And it filled me up as if I had gone to a spiritual retreat!

It was truly amazing! And it was life changing for me!!!! Some may think this is too strong of a thought or statement but that’s ok…lol…because for me I knew it was.

How?!

I came back determined even more to be that voice for women who don’t use their voice. To reach out and ask these women if they are open to find their voice?!

I came back fired up to remind not only myself but those who are seeking natural solutions and game plans for their wellness/health journey that I’m here for them!

I came back knowing we need to love each other at whatever walk of life we are each at and that means if someone isn’t ready to address their emotions of trauma that’s ok….but let’s address their other health needs…..let’s equip you with where you are at right now on your health journey!!!

These amazing gifts from the earth aren’t just hippy-dippy…..

They empower us to take our own health into our hands….to partner with other practitioners and healers and docs and coaches who are willing to help us incorporate natural solutions and practices to empower our health and wellness!!!

And it gave me the confidence to want to reach out to specifically say and ask if a person would like to partner with me in helping change people’s lives!

I have an amazing vision of raising up young women to not only take charge of their health….use their voice…heal….but to see they can do the same for others! They can be financially free! They can learn even more about themselves and do some amazing internal growth as they grow a business of empowering others!

And if that wasn’t enough…..my last two Thursdays Empowerment workshops for survivors of sex trafficking….well it drove home all I experienced at convention of: I AM a mission within a mission just as doTERRA is….and that is why I’m so proud to be involved with such an amazing company!

So my bold question for you this day is:

Are you open to start your HOPE, HEALING, HEALTH JOURNEY!?

Are you ready to finally say YOU ARE WORTH IT and YOU ARE ENOUGH?!

Amazing Aha’s…

I was up late last night because my mind was whirling with all the amazing beauty I’m surrounded by.

It was also whirling in the amazing freedom I feel in my health journey.

Last week was full of women empowerment: a workshop for women who were once trapped in sex trafficking and a Facebook live about thriving with dysmorphia.

Anyone in a healing journey knows we never fully arrive….but it’s the journey that gives us amazing growth in thriving.

An amazing thing with thriving and growth is things in the past that could potentially be triggers can take place and all of a sudden you will realize you’re absolutely fine!

That happens for me this last weekend. As I was getting ready to come and attend dōTERRAs convention I was concerned there could be some triggers with the Dysmorphia.

After all I was going to meet people for the first time I have respected and admired.

I was going to catch up with old friends I haven’t seen in over a year.

And I realized I wasn’t doing all the yucky mind stuff. Instead I was excited. And I felt light in my step. And I felt free of my own self judgment and comparing.

And today I had the opportunity to feel the fullness of that freedom when my daughter and I were walking around taking in down town Salt Lake City before all the chaos was about to break loose!

As my daughter and we’re deciding on the direction we were to go in we ran right into my darling friend, mentor, soul sister and into one of the amazing women I have been blessed to learn from and to know from afar for almost 2 years now.

And what did I feel? Love, excitement, joy, peace….and no self judgment or comparison…only freedom!

I saw these two amazing warrior women who I admire and saw all their gifts and talents for theirs and saw all mine for mine.

I saw how we were each so different yet facets that overlap just enough for each of us to draw strength from each other, encourage each other, yet stay true to our inner selves….to be uniquely authentic to ourselves and our own personal missions and goals.

I’m so grateful I had that amazing moment on the street corner because it was confirmation for me that I have come so far and it’s okay to be super vulnerable with others because that vulnerability gives us strength in our healing journey.

It allows us to see each other as God sees each of us: beautifully wonderfully made!

Cause these two women are!! They are beautifully wonderfully made….and so am I! And I am truly enough!

I have entered into a new level, new layer, a new path of this healing journey. And it’s super exciting!

Where are you at on your healing journey?!

What “aha’s” have you had recently that deserves celebrating?

Take a moment to sit with it….journal about it…smile about it and as always oil up and tap about it!

Find the freedom of knowing: you are enough!

My hugs, love, and prayers always!

Kelly

Dysmophia: The Circus Mirror

Today I had an amazing opportunity to share, coach, and start supporting some amazing survivors of sex trafficking with my “You are more than your body!” workshop series.

Yes, you read that correct! These women were used and abused in ways that many of us can’t possibly imagine.

One of the many challenges they face and are needing to heal from is how they see themselves. How they see their body.

These women…more than anyone is at risk of dysmorphia…their bodies were treated as objects of use and abuse that they are at greater of this mental disorder.

But they are not the only ones at risk!

anyone is…

Did you know 1 in 50 women AND men have Dysmorphia?!

Tomorrow join me in Facebook at noon central to learn more about how Dysmorphia effects a person and what it looks like. Plus my personal journey with it!

Hope to see you tomorrow on Facebook!

Have an amazing evening and many blessings dear one!

Hugs and prayers always,

Kelly
