Fear Your Dreams

Pursuing dreams and goals, they can be scary.

I have moments when I find myself falling into the temptation of fear.  It tries to mask itself with all sorts of tricks but ultimately it is fear.

Fear:

  • I won’t reach my goal.
  • I am going to neglect my family.
  • I’m not going to meet my daughters needs.
  • I’m being selfish.
  • I’m going to mess it all up.

But then I STOP…I reach for several oils.  I first use Forgive while I tap and pray.  I have God remind me He placed these dreams and goals in my heart and head because its HIS mission that He has placed there.

By me reaching these goals, I will be breaking the doubt and bondage of generational junk.

  • God is teaching me this is my path for Him and this path WON’T create division between me and my daughter or husband. 
  • He is showing me I don’t have to fear dreams and goals! 
  • I don’t have to fear my family will be hurt or angry with me.
  • I don’t have to fear I’m not equipped because HE HAS equipped me.

I am blessed to have the two greatest cheerleaders: my daughter and husband.  They don’t doubt what God is calling me to do…..and they DON’T ever feel like I put anything before them!

As a family we pitch in to take care of the house, each other, and we each pursue our individual dreams and goals together!

After I have oiled up, tapped, and prayed through all that I feel: Peace…Serenity.  I am able to relate to the serenity prayer in a deeper more meaningful way.

What do you need to relinquish…to find your Peace and Serenity?!

Sit with this….oil up….tap….pray….connect :)….

Many blessings dear beloved ones….

I Love My Cop

Since I opened the door on Monday to share with you that my hubby is law enforcement.  I want to share with you something that I am most passionate about when it comes to law enforcement.

Their emotional well-being!!!

I remember when my hubby went through the academy one of the trainers suggested to all the “cops” to buy the book:  I LOVE A COP…..and have their spouse read it.

Well we did: buy it and read it!  Being a Sociology major with a concentration in Psychology and Criminology I knew I wanted to know even more how a cops mind works and how I as a spouse could support him.  This was one of the best books we ever read early into his career.

Some of my frustrations I have had over the years with all law-enforcement agencies is the lack of emotional/psychological support.  Oh sure if they get into a shooting they are required, mandated, to see the in house “shrink”.  But to just go see a therapist in house to keep the mind clean, to vent, to stay emotionally stable….well that is taboo.  It is something that could go into their records.  It is something that could effect advancements or opportunities within the job.

This is my interpretation:  We want you to open up and share with us your feelings when you have to take a life on the job, but don’t have feelings and emotions when someone cusses you out because you gave them a ticket.  Don’t have feelings when a drug bust could have gone wrong.  Don’t have feelings when you have to tell a mom that her 2 year old didn’t survive the accident.  Don’t have feelings….stuff…stuff….stuff them down!

We expect our law-enforcement officers to not have feelings….to be SUPER HUMAN…..or better yet not human really.  And the thing is they are.  They are just as much: mind, body, soul, spirit as you and me!

Now I know I am not going to be able to change the system the way it works currently in my life-time.  I totally do hope there will be a day that a police officer is able to go to and is actually required to see a therapist at least quarterly, in order to keep their emotions cleaned out.  But until that day happens, there are some things police officers CAN do to support their emotions.  There are ways they can recognize and acknowledge they MUST get that junk out!

Now prayer is helpful….going to church is extremely helpful…..exercise helps tremendously….but God gives us modalities and tools to help us with that prayer…to help these officers unleash these emotions so they don’t get locked inside and create more harm for them: mind, body, soul, spirit!

There are 3 things I would highly highly highly recommend an officer put into practice:

Essential Oils and Tapping are something an officer can do on their own and avoid the stigma.  But Tapping can also be helpful with a coach to work through some more difficult stuff or to get the hang of putting it into practice.  Splankna is something that is done with a practitioner but provides amazing clearing of emotions.

Just like prayer, exercise, healthy eating and sleep habits……using essential oils and tapping take time and practice to putting them into a daily routine.

But the question is this:  wouldn’t it be healthier for an officer who just encountered a rude person go to their patrol car afterwards and “diffuse” some oils in their hands, place the oils on acupressure points, and tap that negative emotion right then and there, rather than bottle it up and the next person who is a jerk to them maybe gets some of that anger or frustration.  Or worse they become disconnected from their family because they keep feeling and experiencing only the negative of the world.

Do you know a police officer in your life who could benefit from any/all of these powerful modalities?  Pray about it?  Share this information with them.  Encourage them to take their emotional health into their hands.

As always…..many prayers and hugs for all of you dear beloved ones….

Seasons of Change

Change is in the air!

I’ve been reflecting on this fall and how our schedules have been changing!  I’ve been loving the idea of sitting on the couch, reading, writing, and drinking a cup of tea as I plan out all the fun Thanksgiving and Christmas plans, gifts, etc!  Which has me thinking…if I love sitting back in the evening checking up on reading blogs, Facebook, emails, and the newest magazine that came in the mail……well then you all probably do too ;)…..

We all make transitions, changes, and the key and challenge is to honor it.  To not force it but to also not ignore it.

I have realized I want to shift from writing in the mornings to writing in the evenings.  To shift from Wednesday and Saturday morning to Monday and Thursday evening.  Who knows it might be just right for this season in my life….in your life :)…..

I could buckle with fear and say to myself, “But everyone has gotten use to my routine of Wednesday and Saturday morning?  Will they want to read Monday and Thursday evening?”  “Will I lose you all?”  BUT THAT IS FEAR…..and I don’t live in the fear realm.

After all I would propose that the reason why anyone reads what I write is because they see the authenticity behind my words.  They hear my heart.  They feel my passion.  Well if I am transitioning in when I feel passionate about what I write then that is when I should write….correct?!  And if I force a writing schedule that doesn’t work for me anymore and is lacking authenticity, heart, and passion….well then I have lost my voice and I will lose you anyways!

So starting next week my postings will come out Monday and Thursday evenings!  Perfect for beginning our weeks and wrapping up our week to prep for some amazing family time for the weekends!

I think I will also be transitioning my Facebook Live’s….but that’s for another day to ponder….lol….

What have you been wrestling with as this fall season has fully arrived and is shifting our perspectives and schedules?!  Is there something you’ve been putting off to do?  Or something you have been wanting to change but been afraid to because it may upset someone?  It may feel weird?  Or it may be out of character of you?

Instead embrace the change!  Change allows our spirit to shift.  Allows our minds to sharpen.  And allows our bodies to be challenged.   Finally it opens our soul to the possibilities of soaring!

As always remember to always take a moment each day to….

…sit…pray…oil up…..and tap….:)

Many drops of blessings dear beloved ones….

Funky Freedom

I was in a funk the week before last and I wasn’t sure why….

Then it dawned on me….it was coming up on the anniversary of my grandmothers death.

This is what I remember about that day….

I remember my hubby leaving out of town for the week due to work.  I remember my daughter and I having a latte date at Barnes and Nobles when I saw I had missed a call from my dad.  And I remember giving him a call back when I got home……and starting a load of laundry while I packed up knowing I was going to travel 4-5 hours that day to be with my dad and help him with all he needed to do.

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

My grandmother died on my military service anniversary date.  Why is this important: she was Navy as well…..she and I were kindred spirits in sooo many ways.

Over the last few years I often find myself laughing when I do something because I realize how much like her I am!

I didn’t grow up spending hours and hours talking and baking with her but I always felt amazing love and acceptance from her.  I was able to be me.  I never felt like I had to prove anything to her.  I never got a lecture or a disappointed look about anything.  And if I entered her kitchen when she was cooking (which everyone else was always promptly kicked out) I never was chastised for being in the kitchen.

Now if you understand the prongs and complexity of Hashimotos, there is amazing studies, research, and evidence about how complicated Hashimotos is in how it is linked to our emotions and traumatic events.

My grandmothers death was the 3rd traumatic event my body endured in a 16-18 month period.  And I am able to understand it better today why her death was the tipping point of my thyroid storm.

My grandmother was my ONE SAFE person.

SHE LOVED ME AND ACCEPTED ME FOR ME!!!

I was always safe with her.  I never had to worry about harsh words form her or teasing or anything negative.  I truly don’t have a single negative memory with her.

I believe the little girl inside of me that was still needing to figure out how to heal from other traumas that were not revealing themselves yet…..well that little girl within felt panic…felt lost…..felt the rug pulled out from under her.

That little girl’s security blanket was gone…..so her body didn’t feel safe and went into disarray!

Even as I sit here writing this I feel amazing warmth thinking of her and profound loss because I realized everything I  am writing is so true.  This amazing light-bulb of realization and connecting the dots is profound, illuminating, and freeing!

Have you had an enlightened moment about a trauma in your life?  Have you had a moment to add just one more piece to the puzzle of your health?!  And have you found freedom in these realizations….revelations!?

Sit with this….pray about this…journal about it…..oil up and tap about it!

Today I’m oiling up with Console, Peace, and Cheer as I tap my thanks for having had a safe person in my life and still loving myself through others ways they can be hurtful through their words!

What are you going to oil up with and tap about!?

Many blessings, hugs, and prayers dear beloved ones!

Tap away your Triggers

I’ve been tapping with Essential Oils for about 6 months now!

I probably have been doing this even longer than I realize.  You too have been in away probably been tapping without even realizing!  How often do you hold your temples when you feel pressure in your head?  Press your fingers to your upper lip?  put your hand on your collar bone?  Do you ever feel yourself pressing those places and feeling relief or trying to find relief?

There are many ways to practice and experience EFT (tapping for short).  There is a sequence but there is also short cuts when in the moment and not having the time for a full sequence.  Furthermore, tapping doesn’t have to be just about a negative emotion needing to be released.  It can also be about appreciation and thankfulness.  It can be part of prayer.

To learn more about EFT and the science behind it check out the Tapping Solutions site.  It’s a very informative site.  And full of great info, especially for beginners.

There can be so many sources out there that practice and teach others about EFT.  For me making sure I have a Christian perspective was very important.   When we start dealing with energy work and healing it is important that the person I am learning from and getting info from is Christ centered.

How does Essential Oils fit into this picture!?

Essential oils are supportive with physical issues and very effective for emotional problems as well.  Essential Oils are energy….we are energy!   There is plenty of evidence and backing to help us understand that Essential Oils do provide emotional release and support in healing.

So if Essential Oils can help us release emotions locked up inside of us and tapping releases emotions locked up inside of us via the meridian points…..then why wouldn’t we combine the two together!

Here is a basic understanding about how to combine the two together.

Once you have acknowledged the emotion you are struggling with rate your discontent, your angst with this emotion.  Pick the oil that is going to address that emotion.  You can diffuse that oil while you tap or put the oil on the tapping points or at the very least on your finger tips that you will be tapping with.

Now you are going to focus on what this emotion is.  This doesn’t mean you stew on it, it means you are going to bring it to the conscience, acknowledge that it is there rather than stuffing it down.

Then you do your set up statement.  It can be as simple as, “Even though I feel (fill in blank), I completely and totally love and accept myself.”  This is said 3 times while tapping on the karate chop point.  Now you are ready to start doing the sequence through all the points (The Tapping Solution has a fabulous 2 minute video about the points).  By the time you have done 5 rounds you need to assess if your emotion has decreased, if you feel energy having opened up and flowing better.  Some signs that things are shifting is if you find yourself yawning a lot, if you actually feel emotions welling up and crying, your body starts to relax, and so many other ways.  Tapping is a chance for you to really check in with yourself and start noticing all these little ways your body tries to talk to you!

Don’t have any emotions to clear out?  Or don’t think you do?!  Then just began each day with:  Thank you, thank you, thank you Lord for another beautiful day!  Thank you for creating me to be wonderfully beautifully made!

What are your thoughts about EFT?  Do you think it is something you would be open to for your healing and thriving!?  Sit with this….pray about this….tap about it :)….journal about it….share your thoughts with me!

Many blessings and hugs dear beloved ones!

Self-Care {Sensational Surprises}

This last week I had to give myself some AMAZING grace and space of not putting any pressure on myself to blog.  The desire was there…..ideas….thoughts….swirled in my head….in my heart.

File Jul 16, 6 29 00 PM

BUT….I needed to not force it to happen….I had to be present in all that I was doing….all that was essential for the week:

  • Connecting Darling Daughter to her new CC (Classical Conversations) group.
  • Starting our lessons back up.
  • Daughters Lit. Book Club.
  • Daughters fellowship night.
  • My parenting/teaching equipping workshop.
  • Creating a rhythm and norm to our schedule.
  • And the biggest….SLEEP!!!

AND….I have no idea if and when I am going to be able to get back into a routine with blogging.  I loved being able to be consistent with Wednesday and Saturday.  It had a beautiful rhythm for me.  And I am sure it will once again but for now I need to write when I can!  Especially as I develop some amazing projects and programs for my coaching practice with the focus of Essential Oils.

So with that being said….I MUST share with you some AMAZING things going on this week with ESSENTIAL OILS!!!  doTERRA is having a BOGO week.  I absolutely LOVE BOGO weeks……they are crazy…..but exhilarating!

Why?

Because each day is different.  I have NO IDEA what the featured oil is going to be as well as the FREE oil.   It gives me the chance to read more about the two oils….and learn even more about these oils.  Especially how I may be able to use that oil in a different way.  ESPECIALLY since I have been learning how to use and share ways to use our oils in an even more profound way….through acupressure points and tapping points.  I love connecting these beautiful gifts of essential oils with my self-care/transformation/wellness coaching.

I promise I WILL BE writing more about that soon.

But til then you all have an amazing rest of your Sunday!  Don’t forget to check out my FACEBOOK PAGE and FACEBOOK GROUP.  I will be posting about these BOGO oils each day.  I look forward to connecting with you there…..AND HERE!!!

Tonight take a moment to reflect on WHAT are your SELF-CARE and WELLNESS goals?  Are you ready to take your SELF-LOVE to the next level!?

Sit with this…..pray about this….journal about this…..contact and connect with me!  I am ready to HEAR YOUR STORY…..to help you map out your self-care and wellness through the support of Essential Oils!

Many blessings my dear followers…family….friends…

Flashbacks {Memories}

Yesterday movers came in to load up our house.

Today we go through it one more time to clean to get on the road.

It had me thinking how as we transition we are also being transformed into the next stage of our life!  Each adventure we have is like an onion….a layer of living our life.

Which has me reflecting fondly in how much I have grown through this blog.  How much it has helped me heal from so many layers of pain, trauma, and wounds.  I have no idea how many lives I have touched or have helped with their journey of living an amazingly thriving life but I do know by being a voice for all of you it HAS TRANSFORMED ME!

Have you set out to do something for others and it has done something for you?  What layer of your onion has been the most healing!?

Sit with this….pray about it….journal about it…..share/connect with me about it!

Many hugs and prayers dear followers…family…friends…

Family {Focus}

I haven’t seen my parents since Christmas.  I will have the joy of having them come visit with us for the night.  They will join us for Mass tomorrow.  We will enjoy some amazing last memories in this amazing Amarillo home.  This home that has held gatherings, sleep overs, and fellowship of family and friends for over 10 years!

This is what we were made for: CommunityCOMMUNION!

I will take in today with great focus, with great care, with great love!  

Have you ever thought about TIME and FAMILY!?

We can buy so many things….we can earn so many things….we can increase so many things…..BUT TIME IS NOT ONE OF THEM!

We get only 24 hours in a day.  We can’t buy more, earn more, gain more.

Time is the one area in our life we MUST be mindful.

So the question is do we waste our time or use it wisely!?

How much time do you spend on social media versus time face to face with a friend or family?

How much sleep do you give yourself versus getting “one more thing” done?

How much time do you spend in front of the computer or TV versus playing games or going for walks with your kiddos?

Sit with this….pray about it…journal about it….share/connect with me about it!

Many hugs and blessings my dear followers…family…friends…
