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….

Humbling Wow…

I am scheduled to be interviewed tomorrow by an amazing woman: Shonda Holt.  She has a goal of interviewing 1000 passionate people about Holistic health!  She has many YouTube videos already up and posted.

I was introduced to this opportunity by another amazing woman….a dear friend…Laura Ricci.   Her interview is already up and ready to be view!

The interview is about:

  • Why am I passionate about what I do.
  • Why do I do what I do.
  • What do I love most about what I do.
  • What is my niche.
  • Powerful transformations.
  • And so many more amazing questions!

I could fret and worry and get all sorts of nervous….but I’m not.  Why?  Because I have learned when we start fretting on what we look like, what we will say, how we will come across…..we are making something about us!  And this is about so much more than me!  This is about spreading HOPE.  Here is another chance to reflect on the HOPE oil!

Of course I could say I it’s a chance to think of PEACE as well….especially for me….lol…

But instead I am going to focus on how I will use my voice to inspire others to find transformation within their own lives!

I look forward to sharing with you on Friday all about the interview!

Until then…..what or who inspires you to have HOPE within your life?  To be transformed so you can transform others?!

Wondering Wanderings

I have been delayed with writing today because my family and I are enjoying looking at neighborhoods.   We are exploring and fine tuning where we would want to live once we move toward the Austin area.   So I am going to keep it short but I had to share….

As we wander around neighborhood to neighborhood; from little outskirt town to outskirt town; I can’t help but wonder what is life going to be like living here?

As we wander I wonder:

  • Where are we going to live?
  • What church will we attend?
  • Where will we shop?
  • Who will we meet?
  • What connections will we make?

So many wondering questions that I could easily forget to live in the moment of the wander!

But I don’t!  Instead I roll on my Peace, Cheer, Hope, and Deep Blue.


I find myself:

  • Feeling a wonderful calm  in the wandering. 
  • Feeling a wonderful joy in the wandering.  
  • Feeling a wonderful anticipation in the wandering. 
  • And feeling a wonderful lack of pain in the wandering.  

So today I’m not following up on the Zendocrine post from Monday but that’s okay because I know I will.  Today I’m not going to focus on all the links I would love to add or pictures to my post instead I’m sharing in the quick moment of how beautiful it is to connect to the wonderful wandering of life experiences!

Have you ever wandered?  How do you connect to a wander?

Sit with this…pray about things….write about it…connect below with me in the comments about this!

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

Connecting with Jesus

Adoration is an amazing gift, privilege, and honestly it is oxygen for me.  I think of when Jesus said to his apostles “could you not stay awake one hour?”  That’s adoration.  There is a chapel set aside for Jesus to be exposed for us to come sit with him.  Pour out our hearts, souls, joys, fears, sorrows.

I cherish my weekly date with Jesus.   It’s interesting because the parish I attend is the only one left in Amarillo that has 24/7 adoration chapel.  but we too are starting to have gaps of needing people to cover these hours.

I grew up with adoration so its something I am very familiar with, but I know there are generations before and after me who didn’t grow up with this type of prayer and worship time.   I am so grateful St. Thomas has adoration.  yet I am concerned if more parishioners don’t realize what a gift we have then we will lose it.  Some people feel they can’t dedicate an hour a week.  Some feel they can’t do the late hours that might be open.

But why not?

How many hours a week do we twaddle away with TV, entertainment busy work, or even feeling frazzled because we don’t have enough hours in our day.

Every week I bring my schedule to Jesus in adoration and I tell him to show me what needs to be weeded out.  I ask him to show me where I’m not focusing on Him, my family, the essentials of life.

He never lets me down. I love my hour with him.  I have cried, laughed, closed my eyes, and rested my head.  I have sat on the floor, knelt in the pew, and have been 100% me with him.  I can’t count all the different oils I have used during my adoration hours to enlighten and connect my experience in such an amazing way.  But probably my 2 favorite oils to use during adoration is Peace and Frankincense.  Because that is why I go….to gather peace.  I need that hour to sit still and feel peace and comfort in his love, his embrace, his wisdom.

It would be so sad if because of a lack of understanding about adoration and/or busyness that our chapel too would have to close.  So my most recent prayers is that fellow parishioners “open their eyes Lord….help them to see your face….

Have you ever experienced a holy hour with the Lord in front of the blessed sacrament?  If so what was it like?  If not, do you want to change that?  Sit with that…..pray about it….write about it….share below about it!

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

Change is in the Air!

Our life is about to become extremely interesting. Our family recently had some interesting events that occurred.  I was reflecting on my daughters curriculum and schooling options for next year.  We are part of a wonderful homeschooling program called Classical Conversations (CC).

Well our local campus wasn’t going to have the next level she would be in next year.  We started discussing all our options and prayed.

As my hubby and I were going for a walk he reminded me there was a CC community in Austin and there was a position for open for his work.  Now I have ALWAYS wanted to move to Austin, but he has always resisted it.

God started showing me the connection of why he was resisting it.  How there has been a disconnect with his mind and spirit about Austin.  Then to add to all of it our daughter really liked the idea of moving.

This amazing 13 year old expressed she felt like she wasn’t living up to her potential staying in Amarillo.

She asked if we could go to daily mass that week to pray more about it.  As we were going to Mass she asked if I had my Hope oil.  I always have this beautiful oil with me.

After Mass she said “Do you know why I wanted the Hope oil?…..Because I wanted to believe….to hope this really will happen!”

What changes are going on in your life that need HOPE!?

Body Peace…

I was generously blessed last week.  A friend was getting rid of many bags of clothes.  I was able to go through them and find a few things that sparked amazing joy for me.  I always love getting clothes versus shopping.  I don’t know why but there is something more intimate about community and helping others versus just going out and trying to “fend for yourself.”

Anyways….it’s situations like this that I have to be careful because clothes can trigger my dysmorphia.  In the past I would have had toxic thoughts like, ” Nothing in that bag will fit me….she’s smaller than me…”  It’s moments like that when I try on something from someone and it does fit I am reminded how my dysmorphia can play tricks on me.   So there were clothes that didn’t fit.  BUT… there were clothes THAT DID FIT.  it was a reminder to me that we are all uniquely and beautifully different.  we have different body types and so of course some clothes will fit and some won’t.  But more important it was  a reminder that a mental distortion disorder needs daily prayer and care to keep ORDER in the mind and the heart and soul.

I knew there would be a chance I would have a trigger so before I even tried on any clothes I did some self care.  I took a relaxing bath with Serenity and Breathe essential oil blends.  I then used my body oil that has lots of self love oils like: Grapefruit, Frankincense, Patchouli, Peace blend…..all with the intention to support my BODY SPIRIT CONNECTION so that my mind wouldn’t take me to dark places.

I had more fun trying on clothes than I think I ever have….even more fun than when I was 97 pounds right before my thyroid storm, when I was experiencing hyperthyroidism and losing ALL my muscle, strength, and flexibility.

I felt free and amazing and I felt like the beautiful warrior woman I know that I am.

Do you have a mental distortion of how you should look, feel, act?

How do you nurture that body-spirit connection?

do you take it to God?

And what essential oils do you think could help support your journey?
