40 Days to Freedom

If you have hung out with me here for any amount of time you know I am a huge advocate of all types of fasts: Spiritual, Nutritional, Absolute, Intermitent….etc.

File Feb 14, 12 18 17 PM

For me it does not matter what type of fast I go into it is always taken into prayer…..and sometimes it is actually given to me through prayer and then me re-taking it into prayer so I can hear clearly what I am supposed to be doing.

But one of the biggies I usually do with a fast is I usually do not share with many people;  usually only 1 or 2 are brought into it.  And that is because it was spoken into me shortly after my huge transformation with fasting in the beginning.  God pressed it into my heart that all fasts forward were to remain private unless told otherwise.

Well here I am years later Him telling me loud and clear…..this one is too big for you….you need to be united with others….lots of others.

Why?

Because there is a HUGE DISCONNECT with who we are as people and in our healing.

There are sooo many hurting people turning to sooo many different types of addictions (drugs, alcohol, pornography, food, shopping, apathy, body…etc).   And why?  To avoid the work of healing.  And why?  Because healing is hard work!

Healing means you have to be willing to go THROUGH the pain….not around it.

Healing means you have to open your eyes to and bring to the front what you have been avoiding.

So on September 2-October 12, I will be entering into a fast that is intentional in praying for people who are struggling with addictions.

I think we probably ALL know someone who is burdened by addiction.  Who has been enslaved by the lies of its soothing denial of the truth.

I can’t do this alone.

So regardless if you enter into a fast or just add extra prayers during those 40 days….are you open to add the intentional prayers for those struggling with addictions?

When we CONNECT our prayers and spirits together we truly CAN move mountains!

Have an amazingly blessed day and labor day weekend!

My hugs and prayers are always with each and every one of you!

blessings,

Kelly 😉

September: Love equals Self-Care

I’ve been reflecting this weekend on what September has in store for me! There are sooo many amazing things I’m planning and have scheduled.

For starters, next week I will be providing a 4 part workshop series for women who have been rescued from sex trafficking. I have modified my “I am Enough” presentations to address their specific needs.

I am beyond thrilled to have been asked to come in and present and love on these ladies with empowerment tools like journaling, eft, and oils.

But we are also going to be digging into the deep stuff of healthy relationships with our body and food and even our mind. We will address topics like eating disorders, dysmorphia, orthorexia, and more. We will talk about how when our sexuality has been used and abuse how that effects us emotionally and why we are more susceptible to these mental disorders.

This has been interesting for me because it means I have to put myself back into the thick of when I felt my weakest and how I felt. It has me having to really dig into the dark parts of my mental disconnects and realize even some areas that well…..weren’t as healed as I thought.

But that’s also the amazing thing about this… it has me continually working on my healing so I can be that light and guide of hope and healing.

As I have been preparing…I realized even though I’ve done various workshops and presentations in the past on these topics I’ve never done an on-line event with it. And I need to….not just for me but for those who want to do private healing through some of this.

Sometimes we aren’t ready to be that open and vulnerable in a group of others….it needs to happen eventually…but it’s ok to give yourself grace to heal in your way….in your time….and with God loving you the entire time.

I will announce the date of the on-line mini-retreat soon.

But to give you a sneak peak of what to expect it’s a 4 part series/event:

1. The story of our body: how and why we are made.

  • Our stories
  • Healing, hope, health

2. The gift of self care through:

  • Baths, walks, massage
  • Podcasts, books, journaling
  • High vibration food and sleep

3. The Mirror: Saying I Love You!

  • Mental disconnects like eating disorders, dysmorphia, addictions
  • Emotions, hormones, what does this all mean? What are the roots?

4. Emotions: acknowledge, embrace, release, rewrite…

  • Understanding how all of the above are important.
  • How eft and essential oils support this healing journey.

I can’t wait to release the date and further details!!!

Inner Beauty: Getting Past Porn

Last week I took a break from writing my book. Why? Because the next chapter is hard…it needed more reflection…it needed me digging deep into how to express the shame that surrounds the topic.

So many of us fall victim of being exposed to pornography at a very young age and then finding ourselves going to it even when we know it’s wrong. Each person who has fallen to it have a different story of why…..but there is a root of hurt, pain, trauma, insecurity…..and so much more!

What so many of us don’t realize is this is not just a mans problem……women who fall victim to it whether full out addiction of months or years, or those who are victims of continual exposure….well these women are hurting, comparing, and trying to figure out why?!

But the enemy gets to win and has us live in shame when we stay quiet and keep our sin in the dark.  So here I share with you the next chapter of the book, addressing how I was first exposed to it and why I continued to go to it from time to time in my life.

Chapter 3

BROTHERS FRIEND: PERFECT PORN

I was about 8 or 9 years old hanging out with my about 6 or 7 year old brother and his best friend at the time.  We were at this friend’s house. I heard the boys laugh and have a strange look on their face as they came out of the bathroom.  I needed to go the restroom anyways so I went in.  There was the typical things you find in every bathroom including a magazine basket/rack.  Well I quickly realized what had them looking all weird.  There were several magazines in there with women wearing, well nothing.  It was my first time of being introduced to porn.  Of even knowing that there was even such a thing.

I found myself feeling drawn and compelled to continue to flip through the magazine even though I was done going pee.   I knew I shouldn’t be looking at it but I was morbidly curious of trying to figure out why these women were naked for all to see.  And then it started to feed the distorted lie in my mind from my previous experience of being touched and looked at by my friend’s brother as if I wasn’t a person.  And here there was confirmation that I wasn’t a person to be respected but a person to be looked at and used.  And thus began my belief that I had to look like these women to be truly loved.

This wasn’t my only exposer.  As I got older most of my brother’s friends fathers had these magazines.  There were some more intense and graphic than others.  I always found myself feeling morbidly and shamefully drawn to them.  I didn’t, but I did want to look at them.  Why, you might ask?  Why on earth would a girl want to look at other women?   Well: to compare and to judge!

All the while destroying my self-esteem even more.  It started to form in my mind that I must look a certain way to have any respect.  When I looked in the mirror I started to look at myself and compare what I saw from the pictures.  I also had other women in my life that didn’t have great body image health and that fed into me developing the body dysmorphia.

I struggled for years with going on and off to porn.  Why?  Again to judge and compare and feel even less about myself.

I had many boyfriends who even wanted to look at these magazines with me.  They rationalized it was art.  I allowed myself to be put into this situation of being used and abused and objectified.

When the internet became accessible in my late teens, early twenties, I would find myself doing searches when I felt my lowest about myself.  I was able to recognize quickly that when my dysmorphia was at its worst is when I was most vulnerable to be willing to look at porn in order to make myself feel even less about myself.

How did I break this cycle?  I met the man I was to marry.  He cherished me in the right way.  He respected me.  He never made me feel unloved or like I was an object.  Then I discovered when he was with the guys, he would do what guys would do, look at these things.  And I didn’t like it.  I didn’t like the idea that I was going to have to try to live up to what he saw in a magazine.  I let him know it didn’t make me feel cherished.  That was all it took for him.

Then it dawned on me….I wasn’t making my own self feel cherished by looking at these same magazines and comparing myself.  I was not honoring my own self.

This brings us to the oils that can support you during this journey of healing and hope.  What has been your experience and exposure to porn!?  Have you experienced a similar situation, whether at a young age, older, once, twice, over the course of years, you too need healing and hope in this area?  Because this is trauma.  It is trauma to your entire senses.  It is trauma to be exposed to the distortion of the beauty of our bodies.

Oil Blend:  Forgive, Slim & Sassy, Cypress:

Forgive is the renewing blend.  Do you find yourself being critical of yourself?  With Forgive we are able to realize we deserve to be compassionate not only to others but to ourselves.  For the longest time I couldn’t forgive myself for falling into the lie that porn delivers to us: body freedom.  I needed to realize that judging and comparing myself was keeping me locked into anger and cynicism.

Slim & Sassy is about inner beauty.  I had to find self-acceptance.  I needed to learn how to truly embrace my body’s individual beauty.  I needed to quit criticizing and comparing myself.  I needed to find my worth and know that I was truly beautifully and wonderfully made.

Cypress is about Motion and Flow.  So many of us view the women in magazines (porn or other magazines) and expect ourselves to be “perfect”.  We judge ourselves that is the way we are supposed to look.  We fear we are not good enough, pretty enough.  We get stuck in believing these lies.  We must become open to trust that we are loved for us, not our body.  When we flex our limiting beliefs we are able to adapt and flow into the growth of how beautiful we are without the airbrush.

Slim & Sassy is the only one that is great for internal use, but in this situation it is even better with topical and aromatic use.  Cypress and Forgive are topical and aromatic oils.

TOPICAL USE:

Layer these oils on the creases of your elbow and the back of your neck.  Put Cypress first to start the flow of renewal of inner beauty.  Layer forgive next and then Slim & Sassy.

AROMATIC USE:

In a diffuser use 5 drops of each.

One final thought before we end in prayer.  You can also use tapping (EFT) as a way to help release the emotions of the traumas.  Use tapping in mediation, in prayer, or even on the go.  It is a powerful tool God has given to us to support us on this healing journey of hope!

Let’s end this chapter with prayer:

Heavenly Father…every time I look at billboards, magazines, and movies help me to guard my eyes and not compare.  Help me to not feel drawn to seek out looking at the distortions of our beauty through porn found in movies, magazines, websites, or even books (romance books especially!).

I continue to thank you Lord for being there always for me, for sending me your Son to remind me how beautifully wonderfully made I am.  I ask you to shield my eyes and my heart to not seek out these distortions to compare and judge myself.

Dear guardian angel, I beg you to be by my side, for Saint Michael to continue to protect me from the snares of the enemy, and for our most precious blessed Mother to wrap me in her mantle to make me invisible to the enemy.  In Jesus’ most precious body and blood I am strengthened and set free each and every day…..AMEN!

Seductive Sugar

Sugar is such a mixed baggage of yuck!  And at this time of the year it makes it especially difficult to try and avoid for everyone.

So I am going to confess.  I was trying to figure out what to write tonight.  I don’t normally have a brain block.  Well life has been full (probably too full) and I was struggling with a thought.  I posted on FB idea suggestions.  And I received lots of great ideas.  And the one that really stuck out for me to write about tonight was SUGAR!

It is that time of the year that everyone is going to start really struggling with it.  It is going to be EVERYWHERE!

Now for me…

Growing up sugar was almost equated to “sin”, “evil”, “bad”.  My parents knew it wasn’t good for us but they just didn’t know how to really express it and reinforce it in a healthy way.  So for me unfortunately it was another thing that added to my baggage of dysmorphia and shame….especially if I chose to eat it away from them.

I fortunately don’t really crave sweet things.  My cravings are salty, creamy, cheesy….lol.  But I do love ice cream and chocolate.  And even though I will find some really great vegan and sugar free options just the sweetness can trigger me into feeling like I am doing something I am not suppose to be doing.

The problem with sugar period…set aside any of us who have an emotional tie to it….it physically IS addicting!  It messes with our hormones.  It messes with our insulin.  Which in return messes with our emotions.

How can we overcome any shame and “ick” with it!?  Keep it simple….especially this time of the year!  So many of us try to replace the candy and pies with alternatives that are “healthier” versions but they can still create emotional baggage.

Instead enjoy LOTS AND LOTS of fresh fruit and veggies!  I am totally serious.  The more we reach for these the better we will feel.  Don’t be afraid to enjoy all of these.  And truly keep it simple.   Just cut them up.  Crunch is wonderful and satisfying.  And its actually quite healing!  I also use lots of different essential oils to either soak my fruits and veggies in or just in my water to help me with cravings and add some fun flavors.

We can get stressed during this time of the year with family.  When our hormones and emotions are out of whack it can make things even worse.  It can cause us to feel even more shame, hurt, frustration….you name it!

Some tricks I use especially during the holidays but year round when it comes to sugar:

  • A note in my frig that says “what do I really want?!”
  • Lemon and orange essential oil at eye level in the pantry. 
  • Pausing to ask myself “what am I FEELING right now?”
  • Will I feel shame?
  • Drink 2 glasses of lemon/peppermint water instead.
  • Remind myself I love myself too much to go through the roller coaster ride.
  • Remind myself I love my family too much to put them through emotions.
  • Remind myself: I AM A TEMPLE OF THE HOLY SPIRIT….to be honored and respected!

But the biggest and best thing to overcome sugars seduction….keep it out of the house!  We don’t have it in the house.  And anything we have that is made with natural sweeteners I ask the above questions to myself.

What is your relationship with sugar?

Sit with this….pray about it…write….oil…and tap….I am truly serious :)!  This seductive “drug” needs all the tools in our tool bag to resist.

Oh but finally…..if you do give into it…..don’t shame yourself….love yourself….give yourself grace and know that you can start all over that very moment!!!!

Because GOD LOVES US NO MATTER WHAT!!!

Many drops of blessings and prayers dear one!

Sabotaging Self-Love

When was a time in my past I truly felt comfortable in my own skin? Didn’t feel shame from traumas and choices?

Have I ever NOT compared myself?

What are the causes/roots?

These are all questions I really dug into about a year ago on my healing journey.  As I was connecting the pieces to the beautiful puzzle of me, I have had to realize…..this journey is ALWAYS….it will ALWAYS BE WORK…..and that’s ok!

Because I am willing to work on connecting my body-spirit health I am able to recognize all the times in the past when I was sabotaging my healing.  When I was sabotaging self-love.  When I was believing the lies of shame and ugliness.

So here is something to reflect on when you have said you were going to do something…make a change (lose weight, stop drinking, spend less, avoid sugar, be patient….the list goes on)…..and you find yourself “failing”….I want you to think about who doesn’t want you to succeed?

Who wants you to continue to sabotage your healing…..your connected health?

Then take it to God….tap with HIM about it!  Renounce the lies of the enemy and find GODS AMAZING HEALING LOVE!

Sit…pray….write…oil up…tap….share….

Hugs and blessings dear beloved ones…

Breaking Free…

Today is not only the first of March but it is ASH WEDNESDAY!

What better day to start really assessing which essential oils can support us to break free from our addictions!  The next 40 days you can experience lent like you have never experienced before!

First assess why you might have an addiction?  What is the root?  Besides FEAR!  What emotions are branching off of fear?

  1. Fear of letting go?
  2. Lack of loving yourself?
  3. Trying to escape from deeper emotions?
  4. Deep anger?
  5. Lacking trust with God?

Whatever the branch or cause of your fear there are many essential oils that can support these emotions and help you reach a greater sense of peace to break through your addiction.

File Feb 20, 7 24 53 PM.png

There are many oils and blends that assist with addictions but my favorites are:

  1. Bergamot: This oil supports all addictions, regulates appetite, relieves tension, helps break relapses.
  2. Black Pepper:  Reduces craves, calms withdrawal anxiety, increases serotonin levels.
  3. Grapefruit:  Reminds me I am beautiful NO MATTER WHAT!
  4.  Lemon: Detoxifies the liver and the mind.
  5. Metabolic Blend (Slim & Sassy):  This only only uplifts the mind and spirit it reduces toxic build up in the body and the mind.
  6. Rosemary: Helps me concentrate on my overcoming my struggles with God’s Will not mine.
  7. Soothing Blend:  This blend reminds me this too WILL pass!

What addiction do you need to break from from!?  Which essential oil resonates with you!?  Sit with this…pray about it….write about it…

Let’s connect….comment below your thoughts…

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