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.

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…

Only 7 Days left! {Transitions}

Time is ticking.

In one week my family embarks on the next chapter in our life!

We go south to Georgetown, Texas!

Yet my mind is whirling with all that I have done and all I still need to do.  I don’t have enough hours in each day to see friends, pack, follow-up appointments with clients/customers, and sooo much more!

What keeps me from pushing too hard?  From losing focus?  From not living in the moment?

Many things…but the biggest is the gift of having HASHIMOTOS!

Some may find it a daunting autoimmune disease but I do not (most of the time).  I have found it to be a gift especially in times like this.  It reminds me to connect to the situation.

I MUST be mindful of each choice.  I CANNOT try to “muscle” through a day of juggling too many things, and too little sleep, like I once did before Hashimoto’s.  That is where the blessing is.  I don’t have the “luxury” of being abusive to my health.  And I MUST remember each day I AM MIND, BODY, SOUL, SPIRIT……and they all work in harmony for optimal health!

So today my focus is meeting for a follow up appointment with a new oiler.   I will take my daughter to have her braces taken off.  Then I will have my adoration hour with Jesus for the last time at my Amarillo parish, St. Thomas the Apostle.  And nothing else!  In between these three appointments I will stay focused on living and breathing with Cheer, Peace, and Serenity!  How?

I continually bind my will into HIS WILL!

I will spend moments sitting and sipping tea while I read or listen to an audiobook.

I will go for a nice relaxing walk with my hubby at the end of the day.

I will not try to squeeze in extra packing today.

I will not try to make any more oiler coaching appointments.

I will not make promises to others that I know is not possible for this day.

AND…..I WILL NOT DEPRIVE MYSELF OF SLEEP!

I WILL BE LOVING AND KIND TO MYSELF.

I WILL CONNECT TO MY INNER BEAUTY AND TAKE CARE OF ME!

Do you try to push through things so hard to forget to connect to what your mind body soul spirit really need in the moment!?

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

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

Serenity {Find Rest in the Lord}

Serenity….

That is what I’ve been trying to feel for about 2 to almost 3 months now since we decided we were moving to the Austin area.

Well we went to Georgetown last week and found a home!  Bought a home!  Going through all the closing process and now finishing up the packing in our Amarillo home.

It all feels like a whirlwind.  A very blessed whirlwind, with one hiccup:  our Amarillo home hasn’t sold!  It has been very frustrating for my hubby.  There has been homes in our area that have sold within weeks of being on the market.  He has had a hard time not letting go and trusting God’s hand in all of it.

But, yesterday as I was cleaning and getting ready for a showing that was cancelled I thought: what could be the root, the issue, what’s holding this house in limbo?  I have thought is was my hubby and all his type A personality and him having to work through trust issues and control issues with God.  Of course we all have these same issues just in varying ranges and degrees.

What I have realized through prayer and reflection is I could be the cause of our house having an energy or spirit of being held back.  Okay stay with me.  I know so many of us are able to rap our brains around the mind body soul spirit of a being.  But is there really a spirit or an energy of a thing?  I think it is the link to the being, us, that will create or attach energy thus good or bad spirit to an item or a thing or even a place.  So let me explain….

I have been and still am beyond excited about this move.  BUT being the introvert and highly sensitive person I am, this home has provided 10 plus years of security and SERENITY for me.  It has been where all my friends can come and gather and fellowship.  I am person who doesn’t like big crowds or gathers; but at my own home I LOVE IT!

Now my body and spirit are going to have to start over,  process new people and new places all at the same time.  Where as in my home I get to be me.  I will have that at my new home but it will take time just like making new friends will take time.  I also have to give up my security, my SERENITY, of people who know me and love me for all my amazing quirkiness.  I love being quirky, I love being me.  I need to remember that I can still be me even somewhere else.  Those in Georgetown will get to know me too and I will find my familiarity, my peace, my SERENITY there too!

So to my Amarillo home:  If I have held you back in anyway: I am so sorry.  If I have clung to you rather than God: I am sorry.  And if I have said or done anything to not allow good energy or spirit to flow from you when someone looks at you: I am sorry.  I’m going to miss you.  I will lean on my SERENITY OIL to support me in this process of saying goodbye and to thank you for holding so much love and laughter for over 10 years!

What do you need to find some calm, some SERENITY with?  Do you find yourself having emotional overload, agitation, restlessness, anxiety, or disconnected?   How can you find your peace, calm, tranquil and connected spirit in a situation?

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

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

Coaches need coaches too!

This week I attended a fabulous 3 days of learning, growing and supporting with other homeschooling parents.  It gives us like minded parents/educators to continue to grow and nurture our learning to be all we are made to be for our kiddos.

The speaker/presenter was amazing.  She tried to say she was a teacher but she is so much more.  She radiated all the qualities of a transformation speaker.

we weren’t even there for 30 minutes and I felt enveloped with amazing love, acceptance, and joy to be there.

Then the cold water was thrown on my face.  OK not literally, figuratively.  This amazing leader had us move into different group circles.  We got situated. I sat, I scanned the faces, just becoming familiar with my new surrounding.  Then in my view, a view I would not be able to avoid because she was just to the left of the speaker, was the most stunning chiseled woman/mom.  She truly could’ve just come from a photo shoot.  I’m not talking a waif like thin body.  I’m talking about a strong defined muscled body.  A body that could be in a fitness competition.  She was petite, beautiful, and EVERYTHING I struggled with, coveted for so many years because of the dismorphia.

I’m not going to lie.  It was difficult to give my full attention to the speaker.  It was in those first moments I had to first renounce many negative emotions.  But then I experienced amazing light and peace.

I remembered she too is a child of God.  And she too probably has a struggle, maybe even a struggle with something right now so I lifted her in prayer.

I also remembered I must honor and respect the dismorphic brain.  It doesn’t mean to constantly live under the label but to not think it just goes away.  Just because I don’t have a trigger moment for months and months doesn’t mean I shouldn’t be vigilant and caring for myself.

I had to coach my own self in a way that I recently coached someone else.  I visualized: what if I did look like that?  Would I be any happier than I am right now?  Would I have greater peace and love of self?   With amazing clarity the answer was NO.

I was able to remember this physical body is not my identity.  This body is temporary.

I felt IMMORTELLE in the sense that I TRULY LOVE THE SKIN I AM IN!

I coach others to transform their lives with self care and self love.  I advocate whole health wellness of mind body soul through the support of essential oils.  And I too still need coaching.

We ALL need coaching.   Heck every profession needs their own professional help/support .  Doctors need doctors.  Police need policing.  Financial advisers need advising.  Moms need moms.  Coaches need coaches.

Transformation is about continual growth.  Engaging your whole self into learning, inspiring, motivating…..being.

Do you need coaching?  Do you need transforming?

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

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