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….

Lavender Love

Lavender is the oil of communication…..

file-jan-16-11-46-53-am

Lavender has not been my friend recently…

I actually didn’t realize it was lavender that was causing me to have headaches…and not feeling so swell.

I didn’t think of it because I don’t use lavender by itself most times…..I diffuse it at night in a blend called Serenity.….and roller it on my pulse points in another blend called Clary-Calm…

But during a  self-care support gathering I facilitated on Saturday we discussed the emotional components of Lavender…..

It still didn’t really make much of a difference to me at that point….but since it was fresh in my mind….when I went to use Clary-Calm on Sunday….I instantly experienced tightness in my temples……which had me thinking….

I started to track back over the last week every time I had that type of headache….and sure enough it was when I would be getting ready to go to sleep….and when I would reach for Clary-Calm….

So what was going on!?

file-jan-16-11-46-30-am

I pulled out my trusty EMOTIONS AND ESSENTIAL OILS book and started to re-read to see if anything resonated within me….

Sure enough I was experiencing the negative emotions….meaning emotions that haven’t cleared or needed to be cleared from my body….my spirit….

You see essential oils are supportive when you are needing to feel strength in a particular emotion….or needing to connect or heal…..in a particular area….emotion….

BUT…..if that emotion is so strong….it can get locked in your body….your spirit…..and that oil when used is like a thorn…so it’s not a sign to NOT use that oil….INSTEAD it’s an indication to have you stand up and take notice….

Notice your spirit is trying to tell you something through your body…..

So why was I feeling the negative response!?

I need to be more emotionally honest with my extended family.  I need to give voice to how words are my love language and they need to respect that…..I need to make sure my spirit is heard so my body can heal!

When we speak up with our physical voice we nurture our spiritual voice and this brings us to an awareness and a connection to God’s amazing love and grace.

So the question for you my dear readers….

What are you holding back!?  What have you been afraid to speak up about?! What rejection are you fearing!?  How can YOU FIND YOUR VOICE!?

Take a moment to sit with this….pray about it…write about it….and then use your voice!  Live in HIS WILL!

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