Why I Promote Energy Healing

Energy Healing has literally changed the game for me. Working with energy raises my vibration and expands my consciousness as well. It pushed me to make changes in my life, eating healthier, moving more, meditating more. It allowed me to find my own strength, self-worth, confidence and leave my past behind me. It has really empowered me – because it taught me to empower myself!

So how does energy healing actually do this? We ARE energetic beings and everything IS energy, this simple truth has been scientifically proven. To keep this simple, we have an invisible energy body surrounding our physical body. In this energy body are layers. Each layer has different functions and the layers are associated with different chakras, these chakras affect different areas of the physical body. The chakras are openings for energy to flow into and out of the aura (energy body). This energy is associated with a form of consciousness, thus we experience the exchange of energy in the forms of seeing, hearing, feeling, sensing, intuiting or direct knowing. It is important to open the chakras and increase our energy flow, because the more energy we let flow, the healthier we are. Illness in the system is caused by an imbalance of energy or a blocking of the flow of energy. In other words, a lack of flow in the human energy system eventually leads to disease. It also distorts our perceptions and dampens our feelings, making it hard for us to lead healthy, happy lives.

So what causes an imbalance and blocks in the flow of energy? Majority of people today have been conditioned to react to unpleasant experiences by blocking our feelings and emotions which stops a great deal of our natural energy flow. An example of this, a person is rejected many times when she tries to show her love to another, she eventually stops showing her love by trying to stop the inner feelings of love. In order to do this, she will have to stop the energy flow through the heart chakra. When the energy flow is stopped or slowed down, the development of the heart chakra is affected which eventually a physical problem will very likely result if the energy does not start to flow smoothly again. This same process works for all the chakras. Whenever a person blocks an experience, he, in turn, blocks his chakras, which blocks the flow of universal life force energy. Disrupted, weakened, blocked or imbalances in the chakras can all be caused from many situations occurring in our lives, such as: emotional or physical trauma, injury, negative self-talk, toxicity, nutritional depletion, destructive lifestyle and relationships, neglect of self and lack of love for oneself or others, from emotions that are not expressed in a healthy way, childhood traumas, cultural conditioning, limited belief system, bad habits or even just a lack of attention all contribute to blockage. Difficulties abound in life, for each one of us, we develop a coping strategy. If these difficulties persist, these coping strategies become chronic patterns, anchored in the body and psyche as defense structures. It is important to recognize the blocks we carry, find and understand their source then heal them.

Energy healing is excellent for healing any physical, mental, emotional and spiritual issues. I recommend starting off with the Clearing Program. This program is very in-depth and intense and goes back in time. I also suggest regular energy healing therapy like Reiki Energies. Long-term practice of whole-body energy healing will restore the general condition of the body. It will open the energy channels and this will allow the body to deal properly and naturally with stress and the build-up of toxins along with coping with anxiety and depression.

Some of the health benefits from receiving energy healing:

 

– Creates deep relaxation and aids the body to release stress and tension
– It accelerates the body’s self-healing abilities
– Aids better sleep
– Reduces blood pressure
– Can help with acute injuries and chronic problems (asthma, eczema, headaches, etc.) and aides the breaking of addictions
– Helps relieve pain
– Removes energy blockages, adjusts the energy flow of the endocrine system bringing the body into balance and harmony
– Assists the body in cleaning itself from toxins
– Reduces some of the side effects of drugs and helps the body to recover from drug therapy after surgery and chemotherapy
– Supports the immune system
– Increases vitality and postpones the aging process
– Raises the vibrational frequency of the body
– Helps spiritual growth and emotional clearing
– And more!

 

Energy Healing works. It changes you from the inside out. The main thing to remember is that body, mind, and soul together with the energy body, are one invisible whole. This simple, non-invasive healing system works with the Higher Self of the receiver (person) to promote health and well being of the entire physical, emotional, mental and spiritual body. Therefore it is truly a system of attaining and promoting wholeness. It is an extremely powerful, yet a gentle energy that can be easily channeled to yourself and others, just by intention. When it is combined with the sincere desire of the healer, who is willing to effect a cleansing within their consciousness, a total healing can occur. A total NEW you can Emerge!

3 Steps to Managing Skin Allergies

How do you manage skin allergies? There are three components to this answer. First is that you must understand the condition, then you have to discover what, if anything is triggering your skin reaction, and third you must take care of your skin.

Think that allergies only affect the respiratory or digestive systems, think again. They can also affect your largest organ- your skin. As with other allergies the immune system will overreact to the presence of certain substances and set off an inflammatory response. You can check with Dr. Google or talk with your own doctor, either way, skin condition are better treated when you understand what is causing the outbreak.

The next step is for you to identify and eliminate the allergens or irritants that begin the itchy/scratchy cycle. There are thousands of known triggers for skin allergies, some are natural and many are man-made. My suggestion (and how I approached this when I was trying to figure out what was causing my daughter’s eczema) is to eliminate everything that could be a possible irritant. Step back to the basics. Use glycerin soap and wash your hair with baking soda until your skin clears up and then begin to introduce items back into your routine and watch your skin and how it reacts to everything.

A common man-made trigger is latex, which comes from the sap of the Brazilian rubber tree. The natural proteins and those added in the manufacturing process can trigger an allergic reaction. Most people are aware that this can lead to reactions if you wear latex gloves. However, latex is also present in baby pacifiers, balloons, pencil erasers and elastic bands in undergarments. There can also be problems when latex particles become airborne and are inhaled. If you have a latex allergy try to avoid the material and use vinyl or plastic where possible.

Nickel is another common trigger. In addition to the obvious nickel-containing metallic objects like coins and jewelry, nickel is also present in everyday objects like scissors, bathroom and kitchen cabinet handles, and zippers. Mascara, eye shadow and eye pencils also contain nickel. Experts estimate that the number of people suffering from a nickel allergy has risen about 40% in the last decade. Much of this is believed to be due to the popularity of body piercing. Some foods also have natural nickel content and people who suffer severe symptoms may need to restrict their diet under medical supervision. At present, there is no way to desensitize a person with a nickel allergy. Avoidance is the best strategy.

Then we move onto effective management and is looking after your skin. Find products that your skin loves. Natural moisturizers and scrubs, fragrance free laundry detergents and essential oils replace the fragrance scents you think you might miss.

Managing your skin’s condition means firstly moisturizing and softening the skin to ensure it does not dry out. Your doctor may recommend you use topical corticosteroid preparations to control the inflammation. I use coconut oil for daily moisturizing, and then I have special balms that I create using natural oils for when my skin flares up.

When you take a bath soak in lukewarm water for 20 to 30 minutes. Do not have hot baths or showers, as the heat will increase skin dryness and itching. You can add oatmeal or baking soda to the bath for a soothing effect, and relax some of that stress away.

Buying handmade soap or glycerin soap from a reputable crafter can make a huge difference in your skin. Some handmade artisans also make bath oils that you can use after your shower to seal in the moisture and make your skin feel supple.

After the bath dry yourself by patting your skin with a soft towel. This helps retain moisture. Immediately after drying your skin apply your lotion or oil to help your skin retain the moisture.

To look after your skin you will also need to avoid situations where you will experience extreme physical contact, heavy perspiration, or heavy clothing. This may mean avoiding some sports. Swimming is permissible if you rinse the chlorine from your skin as soon as you leave the pool, and use a moisturizer after drying yourself.

I hope this helps!

3 Simple Steps to a More Restful Night

Let’s think about this: It’s 5:27 PM. You’re leaving work and your hanger is taking over and then you get stuck in traffic. Frustration sets in. But you’re used to it since this is an everyday occurrence.

You finally get home around 6:04 PM, your 2 young kiddos are vying for your attention, and they’re hungry too. You walk to the freezer and even though you know full well they’re not healthy, you pop some frozen dinners in the microwave. At the same time, you know that you can barely think in your current state, much less cook. You slop down your plate of Salisbury Steak and then realize your day still isn’t even close to being over.

Time to do the dishes, the laundry, bath the kids and read them a story before bed… When the children finally go down, you remember that you have to finish up the work that you brought home from the office and you really wanted to get that blog post written too. When do you have time to rest? At night you keep telling yourself.

But every night it’s the same old story. You flop into your bed at 1 AM and close your eyes, your mind is still racing from the day that just passed and the busy day you know you are heading into tomorrow. You toss and turn, hoping that you’ll be able to get at least a little shut-eye before your 6 AM wake up call (your phone annoyingly ringing on the side table).

Wake up and welcome to groundhog day, you get to do it all over again. You’re tired at work, you don’t have time to eat, you’re stressed, and you can’t get out of the vicious cycle.

So what do you do?

First thing’s first: take a deep breath. You’re probably stressed out just reading this far.

Let’s try a few of these ideas and see what happens, shall we?

1) Get a notebook and take 5 minutes right before laying down to free write. What you want to do is get every thought from the past, present, and future out of your head and on paper where it’s safe and secure. This will free the clutter from your head and allow you to rest easier.

2) Get a new alarm clock or an app that wakes you up gradually with classical music or another sound you enjoy. This will do absolute wonders for your morning routine. What you want to do is set the alarm to go off 15-20 minutes earlier than you usually wake up. It will turn on very quietly and slowly bring you out of your slumber.

3) Add a few very healthy snacks to your daily routine. Baby carrots are a great options, smoothies, apple slices or celery and peanut butter can be great as well. When you’re hungry at work or on the way home, munch on these. Another great snack is raw almonds. Eating healthier does amazing things for your body and your sleep.

Let me know if any of these ideas help you out or if you have any others that I could try as well!

 

3 tips to get more water in

After a little research it is apparent that nobody really knows where the saying that you need to drink 8 cups of water per day comes from. Some people trace it back to a study in the 1980’s, and other people claim that doctors starting telling people that amount because it was a good goal, but didn’t have any scientific research to back it up with.

Either way, the point is clear, water does wonders for your body, and your brain. Your body is composed of about 60% water and it is well known to cleanse your body of harmful chemicals through your intestines and also throughout your urine tract. Without proper water intake, our bodies break down very quickly, in a matter of days. Without food, however, some people can live for a week or two. That just shows how important water is to our bodies.

Here are 3 quick tips for taking in more water.

1. Always have water available.

I like to take 12 ounce bottles of water and keep them in the fridge. Whenever I go to the gym I grab a bottle. On my way out the door to work, I grab a bottle. Before a trip that will be 30 minutes or longer, I grab a bottle. Whenever I am sitting watching TV or a movie, I will have a bottle. I take a lot of little sips until the bottle is gone. I almost always have a bottle of water with me. A great way of making sure you drink more water is to make sure it is easily accessible.

2. Keep it cold.

Or don’t. Add frozen fruit to it, or don’t. The choice is yours, the preference is personal. Keep your water the way you like it and you will drink more of it.

3. Chose water in restaurants.

Whenever I go out to eat, I always drink water with some lemon. The lemon adds a little spunk to the taste and the water is always nice, cold and refreshing. After a short time you will stop craving your old drink of choice and will begin to appreciate the taste, or lack of taste, that water provides.

Stay hydrated my friends…

Heart health talk

Almost 14 million Americans have a history of heart attack or angina. It is now one of the leading causes of death in the United States. More than 1 million Americans have heart attacks each year. A heart attack, or myocardial infarction (MI), is permanent damage to the heart muscle. “Myo” means muscle, “cardial” refers to the heart and “infarction” means death of tissue due to lack of blood supply.

Nutrition and energy are delivered to the entire body by blood from the pumping heart. The heart itself requires constant energy in the form of oxygen and nutrients, which all come from the blood that delivered through the coronary arteries.  A blockage in the coronary arteries prevents blood flow and causes the heart muscle to starve. The medical term for such starvation is ischemia, a condition that  is accompanied by a chest discomfort called angina.  If the blockage is severe, some of the heart muscle actually dies. When heart muscle dies, this is called a heart attack or myocardial infarction.

Fortunately, modern medicine already offers medical treatment for acute heart attack.  Preventive measures have been identified and are now being taught to prevent such an attack from occurring or recurring. Beta blockers are medications used to decrease heart rate and blood pressure. These can be given through an intravenous (IV) line or by mouth. Oxygen is used via nose plugs or a face mask if a person is having a heart attack. This is useful if breathing is difficult or the amount of oxygen in the blood is low.

Aspirin is used to decrease blood clotting. It works by preventing platelets from sticking together. Plavix (clopidogrel) is an additional platelet blocker given to those having a heart attack. Both aspirin and plavix are pills given by mouth. Clotting inhibitors called heparin, lovenox, and 2B3A are given via the IV and can help prevent the blockage from getting worse. A statin, or cholesterol pill, is often given to those having a heart attack. This too can stabilize a blockage and prevent it from getting worse. Chest pain can be decreased with nitroglycerine. This is given in a variety of ways, a dissolving pill under the tongue, a paste on the chest, or via the IV. Nitroglycerine helps dilate the coronary arteries allowing more blood to flow through. Morphine is another medication to control chest discomfort and ease anxiety.  These medications mentioned work to stabilize a blockage, however, they are not very effective in removing one that has already formed. This job is done by “clot buster” medications or thrombolytics. T-PA (tissue plasminogen activator) and similar medicines can break apart a blockage and restore blood flow. Alternatively, this can be done with a balloon and stent procedure by a cardiologist.

Scary, huh? There are practical ways that can lessen the chances of having a heart attack. Consuming at least five fruits and vegetables daily, exercising at least 2.5 hours per week, maintaining a healthy weight and not smoking can decrease your chances of heart trouble by 35 percent, and the risk of dying by 40 percent, compared to people with less healthy lifestyles.  Research have shown that people who eat a balanced diet and exercise more can substantially reduce their risk for cardiovascular disease and death even if they’re in their 50s or 60s. A plant based diet is even better.  Most experts agree that a health-promoting lifestyle such as eating well, being active, and not smoking can cut overall risk of heart disease by 80 percent. Indeed, adopting a heart-healthy lifestyle makes a difference.

5 ways to lift your spirits

I tried things the conventional way for many years and found that nothing ever really changed for me. I still got sick, still got sad, and was still unhappy for long periods, rarely experiencing joy and peacefulness. What is a girl to do?

Luckily for me there has always been this curiosity of what could out there in the alternative world including the alternative therapies.  I’ve tried many of them over the years and will continue to do so, all in the hope I can make things better for my body, mind and spirit.   And it has.

I’m aware that what may work for me may not work for someone else, so the message is to keep trying until you find something that will suit your needs.

Many times I’ve been told they’ve tried everything.  What is everything?  What it actually boiled down to you could count on one hand.  It’s worthwhile to keep searching, you may find that your world expands in a most amazing way by the making of new friendships (I have) and picking up useful skills for your ‘self-healing’ tool-kit.

So what do I do when I’ve reached a cross-road and need some direction or could do with some healing?

Below I’ve listed 5 basic points that have helped to lift my spirit and with practice will also help yours:

1. Meditation!  Meditation is one of the greatest self healing tools available and costs nothing except a little of your time!  There are many meditation techniques out there, find one that suits you and begin.

By putting some meditation music on and spending time in quiet contemplation it can soothe your soul and reconnect you with the highest aspect of yourself. Or you could even follow a guided meditation.

2. Aromatherapy and Essential Oils.

Rebalance and rejuvenate your spirit through blending a selection of essential oils together in an aromatherapy oil diffuser.  I’ve found the following blend works extremely well when there’s a need for nurturing, support and healing:

Approximately an hour before retiring to bed place a few drops of the following:

4 drops Jasmine

4 drops Rose

4 drops Neroli

3 drops Lavender

3 drops Bergamot

This smells divine!  I use this one every now and again and not only sleep like a baby but anxiety and stress disappears, and feels like the weight of the world has lifted from my shoulders by the following morning!  (If you have a small bedroom you might like to half the amount of drops) If you need to know where to buy essential oils, look no further. doTerra is the brand I trust and recommend.

3. Breathe!  Stand with feet a shoulder-length apart.  Take 3 slow and deep breaths using the diaphragm muscles.  Breathe in through the nose, and breathe out through slightly parted lips.  As you do these imagine you’re inhaling your personal power, filling every cell in your body, from your diaphragm up to the top of your head.

Step into your personal power and notice how much taller, straighter and stronger you become.  Repeat the steps above.

4. Be in the Present Moment.  Take a few deep breaths and focus totally on this moment, right now.

If you’re reading a book or magazine, or even this article, totally focus on the words and take in their meaning.  There is only you and this article now in the present moment.

If you’re in the workplace, focus totally on the task at hand, and only this task, and what you must do in order to complete it.  Nothing else matters except you and the task at hand.

5. Set an intention.  When I’m on the lookout for something new and useful for me, I set my intention on what it is I’m after.

For example, I may want to find a book that will give me answers in regards to directing me to another healing modality or skill.  I then meditate on this intention, give it a time frame then open my heart to it.  Lo and behold I will have a book in my hand in no time at all!  I love the power of intention – I also use intention for getting a parking space when I go shopping!

These days I rarely get sick and when I do and have a medical checkup, doctors tell me I’m actually very healthy (surely they can find something so I can get some sympathy around here!) which also includes blood test results.

I still do sadness and unhappiness well (I am human after all) though neither lasts long whereas in the past it would last many days sometimes weeks.  What lasts much longer is a peaceful state.

Blessings!

 

3 steps to a happier, healthier day

To me, there is a difference between a diet and making long term changes which will be crucial in achieving and maintaining your goals, such as weight loss.

Here are 3 steps to a healthier day that can help you slim down and feel better.

Exercise Daily

Daily exercise can make a difference in your body shape and in the way your body processes calories. When you exercise, you work your heart, mind and body. You are building your muscle mass, which in turn will increase the effectiveness of your metabolism.

Additionally, you encourage your heart to pump blood throughout your body more effectively, which means that you will have healthier blood and a reduced risk of heart disease. You reduce fatty deposits, which in turn helps reduce your risk of many health problems, such as diabetes. You also increase the number of endorphin levels that flow through your body, which means that you will note an increase in your positive attitude.

It does not require a large amount of time exercising to receive all of the above benefit. You simply need to workout regularly for a minimum of half an hour. Working out means taking a two-mile walk at a fast pace, throwing a Frisbee or riding a bicycle. Whatever the workout is, keep in mind that it should elevate your heart above it standing heart rate and it should make you breathe slightly heavier than normal. It is also good if you can break a sweat or feel your muscles challenged.

Eat All Things in Moderation

When you are trying to lose weight or just get healthier, it is vital that you allow yourself to eat all foods, but eat the unhealthy ones in moderation. The primary reason that many diets fail is that people reduce the foods that they allow themselves to eat so drastically that they feel anxious after awhile eating the same things time and time again. When you allow yourself to give into simple cravings, you are rewarding your body and making it less tempted to crave larger portions of the bad foods.

You should also eat small portions of every food, regardless of its nutritional content. Eating smaller portions will help your stomach adjust to consuming less food. You can also drink water to help you feel full. American’s especially have a habit of eating more than one portion of food per meal – so be aware of your food portions!

Phone a friend

Studies prove that having a Buddy help you work out increases your chances of maintaining a diet, exercise routine, or long-term weight loss. Friends are fabulous motivators. They will keep you attuned to your habits and help you feel accountable throughout the day. If you must, enlist the help of a partner to be an appointed weight loss guardian. He or she will be tasked with ensuring that you stick to your weight loss goals by encouraging you to report your progress several times a week. If you cannot find one and would like support in this area, feel free to contact me.

4 easy health and fitness tips

The US has seen an enormous increase in the number of people considered obese by the medical community. In fact many of my colleagues call it an obesity epidemic. To combat this we find all sorts of pharmaceutical companies selling the “quick fix” pills, powders, and lotions that do nothing to actually help people take the fat off and keep it off.

Of course the same could be said of the diet industry as well. There are so many different diets going around now you could pick one a month and in a years time still have more to choose from.

What is truly needed are some sensible proven weight loss tips that people can implement no matter what their present physical condition is. That being said, let’s dive in…

#1  Drink more water. Hydrate, hydrate, hydrate. All too often people are borderline dehydrated and so their bodies are working on the water starvation reflex and not flushing the toxins and junk out.

#2  Eat more often. Did you think I would say eat less? While it is true that to lose weight you need to eat less calories than you expend…you need to eat more often to get the metabolic furnace revved up and burning right. Get it out of starvation mode. So start the day off with breakfast. This can be as simple as a protein shake or green smoothie as you head out the door in the morning.

#3  Move more. Depending on your physical condition you need to be moving more. Use the stairs rather than the elevator, park farther out from the office or the store, go for a walk around the block, go dancing, play with your kids. Make it fun. Running is not the only way to burn more calories.

#4  Finally, determine  your “Why”. Decide why you want to discard fat. Make your reason big enough to motivate you through the slumps that invariably happen. If you can’t figure out your “Why” and need a little extra support, contact me.

My  reason started out as being able to live to see my great grand kids graduate college. My children are now 14 & 18. So I have changed this goal to “great” grand kids!

4 steps to better health

 

Is it possible to completely change your health in 4 steps, maybe no – but every step you take in the right direction is one step closer to achieving your goals. As long as you take these nuggets of info and put them into action.

Let’s get started…

Step 1: Nutritional Supplements

Now I not a doctor or a nutritionist. I am a holistic health coach and these are my opinions based on my own research. I believe that nutritional supplements are very beneficial. They can be a boost when you are lacking in an area and they can also heal when taken individual.

Everyone should be taking a multi vitamin w/ mineral, extra vitamin D3 and an omega 3 supplement as well.

Step 2: Nutrition

Good nutrition is SO important. You are what you eat…remember that! Make a conscious effort to gradually improve your eating habits, eating more of the good foods (nuts, berries, peanut butter, olive oil, greens, organic/free range chicken, whole grains, etc.) and less of the bad foods (fried food, saturated fat, fructose corn syrup, hydrogenated oils, SUGAR, etc.). Reading the label of what you’re eating will tell you a lot.

You may think you lack the needed will power, but you’ll be amazed at what happens when you just start adding in better foods. Need support in this area, feel free to contact me!

Step 3: Exercise

Exercise is the missing piece of the puzzle when it comes to better health. There are so many benefits of exercising, including stronger bones and improved libido- it’s a no brainer to start doing it. Reducing stress is the TOP reason that I exercise every day (see #4 for some other ideas as well). Your goal should be to exercise 3-5 times a week with a combination of cardio exercises and strength training.

It’s been measured that if you add 3 pounds of muscle to your body, this added muscle will burn as many calories as if you ran 1 mile. Muscle burns calories!

Step 4: Stress Management and Sleep

Stress management and getting good sleep each night round out your path to better health. Until you find a way to manage your stress, it will continue to do damage to your body. Two tips you might want to implement include prioritizing your day each morning and practicing deep breathing exercises (yes, you probably already knew this, but have you tried it?).

Getting enough sleep each night is equally important when you consider your body uses this time to repair itself. You should aim for 7-9 hours each night. Two tips you might want to implement include exercising and avoiding late night eating.

Now that you have the basics, expand on this information.
Step 1 research more about Nutritional Supplements,
Step 2 research more about Nutrition and so on.
I can almost guarantee if you make a commitment and follow these 4 steps, you quickly be on the road to better health.

10 powerful steps to healing

1. Be Present

The past is behind you, you can never go back. So draining anyways, all the energy it takes to dwell on things that can’t be changed. All you have is right now and from now on. Focus there. Your future. Which is healed if you so choose it. No matter what is occurring in your present, live it with positivity. It is all right and perfect in this very moment. Our minds create a lot of stories to protect us, but you don’t have to let it. Just tell yourself “I am safe, I am here, I am present”.

2. Nature

This is one of the best things you can do to begin to heal. Get outside. Check out the book Earthing. Sit down in the grass outside, lean up against a tree and feel the pulse of the earth. Take in the grandeur of the sky, feel the breeze blow through your hair, and the warmth of the sun on your face. Smile and absorb it all.

3. Exercise

Move! Everyone should do it. Daily. Exercise helps you destress, clear your mind of its clutter, strengthens your heart, clears toxins from your body and gives your energy. Experiment and find an exercise that really feels good for you. Maybe it is running, maybe you were bitten by the Yoga bug or Zumba might be your thing. Go find it.

4. Spirituality

You should know that you are unique and important, why would you be here if you were not. Recognize this, accept it. Meditate, or sit quietly, and be in the moment. Read books, magazine and articles that are uplifting and have positive messages. Be grateful for all that you have in your life – family, friends, health…

5. Forgiveness

Refresh on step #1. Let go of the past, it is done and cannot be changed. Forgive yourself for anything in your past, shortcomings, mistakes, fear… you are whole and perfect! Forgive others that have hurt you or have done you wrong. They only affect you if you let them. Let go of these grudges and make peace with yourself.

6. Self Care

Bath time anyone? I love my self care time. Whether it is a face mask or a bath with fizzing bath bombs, I am all about loving “Me”. Give yourself time to explore what nourishes you and then permission to relax just be. A few ideas might be to go for a massage, read a book, get a facial, buy some red high heels, do brunch with the girls.

7. Nutrition

Nutrition is essential for healing. The body WILL heal, given what it needs to do so. Listen to your body. Feed it what is wants, what it needs to have energy and repair. Eliminate foods that do not serve you. Contact me to discuss food allergies or detoxing!

8. Let Go of Judgment

Judgement and blame only hurt you. Accept those for who they are and they will allow you to embrace your own authenticity as well. Speak encouraging words to yourself and others. Be the light that leads the way.

9. Service To Others

I am always working in service of others. Every morning before I get out of bed I ask Spirit how I may serve. Be the listener your friend needs today, offer the hug your son can’t ask for, volunteer at the local food bank, clean out the closet and donate the things you no longer need. Finding ways to help others lifts you spirit as well as that of others.

10. Love

Love unconditionally. Without compromise. It is something that you can give to anyone, everyone, especially yourself that doesn’t take any effort or energy. Smile at strangers and bless them. Speak openly and from your heart to everyone. Be joyous and shine!

Blessings!
