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.
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.
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!
PS…want to learn all about the types of fasts? Just do a search here on my blog with the keyword ‘fasting” and you’ll come up with ALL the times I have written about fasting and the ways we can approach this powerful spiritual and physical tool!

When I look at my beautiful daughter I hate that I passed on to her my hormonal imbalances!
But what she has that I didn’t have at her age is so much more understanding of it…and how to overcome and transform her health!
One way our hormones can be imbalanced is being estrogen dominant.
Estrogen dominance can be very common, and despite knowing the signs and symptoms of this condition, you should also know what to do if you are suffering from it.
💧The 10 most common symptoms of estrogen dominance:
Abnormal menstrual periods
Bad PMS (breast tenderness/swelling, mood swings, and headaches)
Weight gain (especially hips and abs)
Here are the steps you should follow in order to restore the healthy hormonal balance in the body:
💜Step 1: Eliminate Xenoestrogens
We are constantly being exposed to various chemicals, and one of them is “xenoestrogen,” which can mimic estrogen in the body.
Therefore, in order to avoid these adverse effects, you should avoid the use of the following top offenders:
Plastic water bottles
Cosmetics, makeup, and toiletries
Non-organic dairy, produce
Soy protein isolate
Birth control pill
💜Step 2: Elimination (ie: poo 💩)
This step is essential as it will ensure the removal of estrogen, and prevent its re-entrance into the bloodstream in the case of chronic constipation.
Make sure you are having daily bowel movements, and in case you are not:
Drink 2-3L of water daily
Increase the intake of fiber-rich foods
Increase the intake of vegetables with every meal.
💧Add the TerraGreens to ensure extra fruits and veggies!
💧PB Assist Jr
💪🏻best taken before bedtime to restore gut.
To promote bowel movements, supplement with magnesium citrate or Triphala
Moreover, in order to help the removal of waste and toxins from the body, you should also:
Exercise or go to a sauna to stimulate sweating
Breathe deeply to support the lungs
Massage your body to support the lymph
Use a dry skin brush to eliminate dead skin cell.
Use your oils with dry brushing!
Oils for lymph drainage support:
💜Step 3: Improve Liver Health and Estrogen Detoxification
Estrogen is effectively removed by a well-functioning liver. In the first stage, the liver turns harmful estrogen intro milder, weaker forms of estrogen, and in the second stage, it converts it into a water-soluble form, so you can eliminate it through the stool or urine.
Yet, the liver won’t be able to fulfill its function if the body lacks important nutrients, or it is overburdened with other chemicals, accumulated due to the use of processed foods, drugs, and alcohol.
To support the function of the liver, you should:
Drink lots of filtrated water
Do not drink alcohol
Each a real, whole-foods based diet
Eat foods that support liver health, such as kale, dandelion greens, beets, garlic, eggs, dark leafy greens, artichoke, onions, leeks, shallots, broccoli, cabbage, Brussels sprouts, etc.)
Taking supplements that are rich in detoxifying vitamins and minerals is super helpful.
In order to kick start your metabolism and improve your overall healthy by detoxifying and energizing the body try:
💧cleanse and restore kit/system
Finally center yourself each day!!!
Find 5-10 minutes at least once if not twice a day to truly reflect on your whole health!
Sometimes when our estrogen is out of whack and we’ve done all the physical and nutritional needs then that means we have some mental, emotional, spiritual stuff we need to address.
But we aren’t going to know unless we stop to center ourselves and find some alignment within ourselves!
How are your hormones?!
As always I hope you take a moment to sit….pray….journal….tap….and oil up today!
Hugs and prayers always,
I have been wrestling with some internal work…..which is good but man it’s exhausting sometimes…..lol….
So reminding myself of my pillars of health have been super helpful!
I have always found it interesting that when I am teaching and/or coaching with others……or putting together workshops…..well what ever the topic is seems to be exactly what I am needing at that time as well….I just didn’t realize it…lol….
As I have been diving deeper into prepping for a workshop I am having on the 6th….it’s been bringing up some of the old junk and yuck of my journey with dysmorphia!
Which has me realizing that I MUST continue to do the mental and emotional work…..which means….I MUST be working on my sleep, stress levels, and toxin load…..because those all contribute to my mental chatter: negative or positive.
I also realized that by not coming on here….and sharing with you all I wasn’t helping myself……and I DEFINITELY wasn’t serving, supporting, and loving you the best I could. Because we all need each other…..we are connected through this great big world….and even if I can’t sit down and physically have a cup of tea with you….doesn’t mean I can’t show up here and have tea with you!
I think sometimes in the big world of blogging, FB, Instagram, and all other sorts of social media we forget to truly show up and connect….the same way we would at tea or a dinner party.
We get caught up in thinking we must have pictures just perfect…..so many hashtags….and all the other chatter…..and we forget just showing up is what is important. Staying connected is what is important.
So this is me staying connected…..let you know that I have so much to share with you and I promise to quit thinking it all has to be “perfect”…..quit thinking you won’t want to hear this or that…..and to quit comparing what I am doing to what others are doing!
Because I am ME….and no one else can be ME! And you need ME…..just as I am…..just like I need each of you to be just as you are!
Because WE ARE ENOUGH!
Have an amazingly blessed day.
Hugs and prayers always,
Can you believe it….Easter is tomorrow 🙌!

Until then…you’ll have an amazingly blessed Easter tomorrow and remember to always….
Sit….pray….journal…tap….and oil up each day for the transformation you seek!!
Hugs and blessings always,
I started out this year with purposing myself to hop on to Facebook EVERY TUESDAY to provide support and service with a facebook live. I do this on my public page Kelly Frick: Connect as well as in two other groups: my private clients and my team of leaders.
What started out as me wanting to be super intentional and consistent in showing up for something…..has turned into an amazing transformation in my own health….we are talking my mental health…..and how it effects my physical health.
You see because of the traumas I experienced in my past….my fight, flight, freeze was always on hyper-alert. And dysmorphia definitely distorts that and makes it even more intense.
So my excuse factor for why I couldn’t do something, show up somewhere, and keep a schedule was always…well full of excuses.
Over the years with ministry and business I have worked more and more on this. But 3 years ago I made a commitment to myself that I had to truly think before I committed to something so I wouldn’t back out at the last minute. So that once I set a date, put something on the schedule or told someone I would be there…..I HAD TO DO IT!!!
It was hard at first…..because it is not that I didn’t want to be true to my word….but you have to understand…..trauma….particularly sexual abuses…..creates this distortion in the brain that EVERYTHING is a potential danger.
I wanted to once and for all be braver and start rewiring my brain to believe and KNOW it was okay to have an amazing ministry and business, to support women, to be the best version of myself.
And that is what I have done.
I have consistently been showing up EVERY TUESDAY for a Facebook Live…..and every week I schedule wellness calls with clients…..every month I provide a wellness workshop…..AND I DO NOT CANCEL ON MYSELF OR ON THEM!!!
What have you cancelled on that was due to your fight, flight, or freeze being in hyper alert?!
Sit with this….pray about it…..journal….tap….and oil up!
Many blessings always,
Here is today’s Transformation Tuesday about preventative care…..
Get started today with this kit (click here).
Want a different kit? (click here to create your own)
Once I receive a notification of your enrollment….I will reach out to you to get your first of many wellness calls set up to help you set up a 90 day coaching plan that will address YOUR WELLNESS GOALS, how to use your essential oils, plugged into private coaching and group…..and a welcome package will be mailed out to you!
What are you waiting for!?
I remember the first time I ever experienced an AromaTouch technique…I was becoming certified to do the work on others.
It was an amazing feeling. And I realized I needed to experience this more often. It was a way I could easily incorporate self care and love of self.
So I’m excited that this May’s Wellness Workshop is all about this amazing detox system I provide!
I will be covering what it’s all about….the 8 oils that are used and why…..
The AromaTouch Technique is an amazing experience to connect with our health.
It allows us to address and strengthen our physical and emotional health.
During May’s workshop we are going to dive deep into it how we can nurture our self care, detox, and support our whole health with the AromaTouch technique.
With Mother’s Day in May let’s honor our femininity, our self care needs, and see how we can start incorporating things like an AromaTouch technique on a consistent basis.
This months class will also have some simple “sample” options to experience.
There will also be purchase options available to take home that day.
Have you ever thought about how self care can help you with detoxing this spring?!
Save your seat 👇👇👇….
Don’t forget to take a moment on this amazing Monday to sit, pray, reflect, Journal, tap…..and oil up!
Prayers and hugs always,
Words cannot describe the pain…the sorrow….the utmost intense emotions I felt last night…
Yet the excitement….the joy…..the peace and healing….
Actually there is another time I felt the same exhaustion from a movie…..the Passion by Mel Gibson.
Last night my family and I attended a “red carpet” event of Unplanned. Our parish church organized a viewing of the movie before it was to be released today.
Actually it was a woman from our church, who organized this event, who is truly passionate about serving others and bringing about light to the world.
This was not an easy movie to watch, for many reasons.
One…I know Abby Johnson! I’m not close intimate friends with her….but one of my dear friends is! She attends our parish, she is on the parish counsel with my husband, and I have had the blessing to visit with her on a few occasions at different gathers.
She IS a warrior woman!
She is a beautiful example of what I share here all the time….and at workshops……and presentations……which is:
TELL YOUR STORY!
Get it out of you….don’t allow it to hold you in shame…..in bondage!
None of us have a pretty bow wrapped story. They are all varying shades of messy. But when we hide them deep within us we are allowing the enemy to separate us from our most amazing, loving FATHER!
Abby Johnson was brave and bold to share her story to THE WORLD! And that alone will continue to be her true healing path.
Being open and honest about your story is a powerful instrument….tool…..of healing.
It is a way to forgiveness……GOD ALREADY FORGIVES US AND LOVES US…..but sometimes we stay in bondage of pain and shame and hurt…..because we haven’t forgiven others…..or most likely we haven’t FORGIVEN OURSELVES.
That un-forgiveness can lead us to so much pain but most of all it can and will effect our health…..first our emotional health…..then our mental…..and finally our physical!
Because the body is an amazing creation! Our body knows it’s connected to our mind, our heart, our spirit, our emotions. It doesn’t try to separate all that we are made up of, as so many doctors or even us, try to do too often.
For me this movie was moving beyond words…..and also very healing. Knowing that the anniversary of the loss of my sweet precious Sam is this weekend, and the D&C that took place on the 1st…..well let’s just say lent is already a difficult time for me most years…..yet also healing and renewing…..but this movie definitely had me doing some ugly crying!
It had me reflect on my own path of life…..my own wounds……my own pain and choices.
I have always been a huge pro-lifer……but I use to not always be as loving and compassionate in how I approached the subject.
And after one of my rapes….even being a pro-lifer…..there was a brief moment of panic when I thought…..”what if I get pregnant?”…..
And finally my saddest thought that took me quite a bit to heal from was when I did loose my precious baby several years back……the shame I had of relief!
My husband and I had struggled for so many years to conceive our daughter and had fought super hard to try to have another. We had finally given into the peace of: it was not meant to be.
Yet when our daughter was nearly 8 we discover we are pregnant, I was less than thrilled. All of a sudden I was having to figure out how I was going to adjust to all the changes it was going to bring. We had BIG plans that year….we had a routine. WE WERE COMFORTABLE.
I should’ve been thrilled but I wasn’t. I had just gotten my health back on track and here this precious baby growing inside of me was going to create havoc with all that. I was selfish in my thoughts. That’s not too harsh….it’s the truth.
My dearest of friends consoled me and comforted me. She was with me through the whole journey. She would ask me the nitty gritty questions….the hard questions. And would remind me deep down what I really felt. Which was that I REALLY DID WANT THIS BABY BUT I WAS AFRAID TO WANT IT! Because what if…..!?
And then WHAT IF DID HAPPEN……and I felt the immense amount of guilt and shame. I blamed myself for waaay too long. But luckily by that point in my journey I had my safe people that I could be vulnerable and honest with….like this friend…..and know I wouldn’t be judged for having human thoughts and feelings.
Many people will go to this movie because they support the cause…the message….the truth.
Many will NOT go to it because they don’t want to hear it.
Some will even waiver because it was given the rating of R…..which is hogwash….our daughters under 18 can go to have a legal abortion but not old enough to go to this movie!?
But I think EVERYONE SHOULD GO FOR THE REDEMPTION MESSAGE they will receive from it.
This movie is about so much more than exposing PLANNED PARENTHOOD……its truly about LOVE, FORGIVENESS, JOY, PEACE…..HEALING!
Have you had an ugly kind of cry recently? I honestly think everyone should about 2-3 times a year….it’s cleansing for the soul….cleansing for the emotions…..and yes cleansing for the body!
Go to this movie….have an ugly cry…..sit with it…..pray about it…..tap and oil up……and see how it moves your emotions, mind, heart, soul, energy in a different direction!
Many blessings and hugs always dear ones,
