THE WHEELS ON THE BUS

Come Holy Spirit fill the hearts of your faithful!

This last Sunday was Pentecost !  The disciples had locked themselves in the upper room for 10 days in prayer and anticipation for the Holy Spirit….their ADVOCATE….to come and be with them as they went out to bring Jesus’s teachings to ALL THE WORLD!

I’ve been really reflecting even more so recently on the word ADVOCATE.  I love how the Holy Spirit IS described as our advocate: ONE WHO SUPPORTS!  As a doTERRA ADVOCATE that is EXACTLY WHAT WE ARE CALLED TO BE: A SUPPORT!  We are to walk side by side and guide, coach, and teach others how to support their health the way God intended us to in a whole body way, with HIS gifts.  It’s truly why I LOVE doing what I do…..because at no time do I, as a coach, (or doTERRA for that matter) say that these oils are the end all be all…..but they are in cooperation with God’s design, plan.  They SUPPORT us in life’s physical and emotional struggles.

As I processed and completed through many chapters of my book recently, I yes could have done it with God alone, but I am grateful He has gifted me with the oils to support my humanness so I don’t have to try to lean on my will….so I can remember His WILL BE DONE!  These oils ALWAYS lead me back to HIM.  JUST LIKE THE HOLY SPIRIT ALWAYS LEADS US BACK TO JESUS AND THE FATHER!

Today’s chapter was a memory that I recall always being in the background of my mind but never clear, it had been suppressed for many years but through one of my Splankna sessions last year I discovered how much it had effected some of my lack of self love and self care.

May my journey bring peace and awareness on your own journey of healing and hope!

Many blessings and prayers always!

chapter 4

 

Chapter 4:

THE WHEELS ON THE BUS

I grew up in a very small down of around 1000 people at the time.  To make it even more interesting that was the town I went to school and my parents had their business but we actually lived out in the country, the foothills of the mountains.  This was about a 15-20 minute drive from home to town, but by bus it was about an hour.  The school bus picked me and my brother up every morning at 6:30 or 6:45.

It was a given fact that the older you were the farther in the bus you were allowed to sit.  So when you’re 10 you didn’t have to sit way in the front and you were able to sit closer to the middle.  This meant you were able to sit closer to the “cool kids” aka: high schoolers.  At least that’s what I thought because they had all the interesting conversations.  They had the cool clothes.  They were just fun to listen to and watch.

There was one girl who had an older brother, so he sat in the back and she always was privy to the inside conversation.  I wanted to get to know them because I thought their house was cool and different whenever I saw it on the school route.

This girl was my age and we started to sit together to make the time go by faster.  We talked about school, friends, her brother and much more.  She was different, they (her and her brother) were different.  The more time I spent with her the more I realized there was something off about them.  But I didn’t really know how to put my finger on it, or what it was, after all I was only 10 when I met her and started to really get to know her that particular school year.

What I do remember is something weird happened one time on the bus that I don’t know how to fully explain how it even came about.  It makes me think of a frog in a boiling pot.  You know the saying that a frog if plunged into a pot of boiling water it would jump, but if you have it in water and gradually increase the water temperature it will adjust and eventually be boiled to death…..well parts of me have over the years wonder if that’s what was happening.  If my sense of curiosity with this girl and her brother and wanting to always know the scoop of what the “big kids” were doing and saying that I don’t even know how it came about where I remember one day sitting in the school bus seat and the next thing I know she was touching me in ways that I was NOT comfortable with.  I remember thinking how did we get here?  Was it because we always caught glimpses of the older kids making out and doing things very much in the public and scandalizing all of us.  Was this girl’s brother doing things with her that he shouldn’t be and this was her acting out?

All I know was I truly didn’t understand why she was touching me in places and in ways that was not natural or normal for our age, let alone being the same sex.  I once again froze.  I couldn’t get home fast enough.  I wanted to wash this experience out of my brain for forever.

I never sat with her again on the school bus.  I remember the next day her waving me to the seat to sit with her and me purposely sitting up in the very front seat with the 6 year olds right behind the bus driver.  I didn’t want to be near the cool kids anymore.

Have you ever had an experience where you felt powerless, dishonored, and muddled?  That’s how I felt!

GINGER, GRAPEFRUIT, and PEPPERMINT:  Let’s take a look at how these three oils can bring back a person’s power, honor, and relief.

Ginger: This oil helps us take responsibility of knowing we are not powerless.  We may not have control over other people’s actions toward us but we don’t have to sit with a victim mentality.  We can gain power but taking actions to prevent it from happening again.

Grapefruit:  When a person has been violated, scandalized, shamed….there is a tendency to want to dishonor our body….to starve it, abuse it, or even hide behind food.  Grapefruit encourages us to have integrity and to truly love our body, no matter what.

Peppermint:  Our mind and our heart sometimes need a break from the pain of memories.  We are to not live in fear.  But we need to remember to not hide or escape the work of clearing out the emotional baggage of trauma.  Using peppermint can help us clear out the muddled pain and confusion, give us temporary relief to breath as we process the pain of a trauma or experience that isn’t so comfortable for us.

Create a blend with these three to put into water to enjoy sipping or diffuse 3 drops of each or place a drop of each with fractionated coconut oil to rub on your belly (your solar plexus) and the insides of your elbow, allowing your heart and body to embrace the powerful healing of honoring your body with taking back your power and moving past pain.

Tap as you Pray:

Heavenly father as I experience these oils, help me to bring to surface any experience that is from my past that I have ignored for too long.  An experience I may have tried to hide from, numb the pain, and grant me the strength now to be fully present in this healing, to appreciate my body and not hide it in shame.  Through your healing power I can do this.  I trust in you.  Amen

Fertility Freedom

I struggled with infertility for many years before I was blessed with my wonderful daughter! And even afterwards.

Then I became empowered with understanding so many of the whys and how to thrive.

Even though I’m now past my fertility years I am able to still find amazing power in managing my hormones and understanding the how and why!

Join me today on Facebook as I dig into ways we can truly thrive and appreciate our fertility and hormones!

Black Pepper: The Cross

When we abandon all our vices…our control…our additions to sin, hurt, pain,and shame…we are left with…

His amazing power, love , grace, and mercy!

How can black pepper help you put your heart in His hands today?!

Sit…pray…write…tap…and oil up!

Many blessings always…

***Traveling this weekend has me stepping back and reflecting on the beauty of life even more so than usual! Not taking for granted the little things, as well as humbling myself to His plans and His will always…especially with traveling!

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…

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….

Self Love with Deep Blue

Wounds….healing….pain…

Fight or flight!?

It may seem like sweeping something under the rug or “moving on” is more important than going through the difficult task of feeling the pain of unearthing wounds of an sort of trauma or forgiveness.

BUT…

This is the WORST form of non-self-love….a lack of love….dare I say SELF-HATE!

When we face our emotions, our pain….embrace it….we are able to open up ourselves to amazing healing….and that is TRUE SELF LOVE!

I LOVE LOVE LOVE grabbing my DEEP BLUE when I am feeling any sort of physical pain because I KNOW it is going to support me to face and embrace the emotions that are underlying.

Are you avoiding emotions? Do you ever feel on the brink of hysteria?  How can you embrace your pain to find fullness in your self love!?

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

Many hugs dear followers…family…friends…

Warrior Women {Unite}

Today I am going to keep things actually super short….shock I know….LOL….

But it is because I want to introduce you to Shonda Holt of Nourishing Everyday. She has a goal of doing 1000 interviews this year. I shared last week how I had the honor and opportunity of being interviewed by her for her View of Hope Interviews.

In her own words: “I started this project to showcase amazing people in our world that have a vision/mission or passion to improve people’s physical, emotional, mental &/or spiritual health. Or, they have a mission/vision to improve the state of those things I believe we were given to care for such as the environment &/or animals.

My goal is to show you that there is hope. If you are struggling or find that some days the world feels dark and negative know that there are at least 1000 people who are spending their lives to make it a better place.”

So today instead of weaving words on paper in print….I hope you will instead check out my video here:  VIEW OF HOPE INTERVIEW WITH ME :)….KELLY FRICK!

And check out the rest of interviews here: ALL VIEW OF HOPE INTERVIEWS!

Then sit and reflect on what gives you hope?  How do you bring hope to others?

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

Hugs and blessings always…..
