As the season changes to winter, the air becomes filled with unwanted pathogens. Use Eucalyptus essential oil to help with transition into the colder months. Place two drops Eucalyptus oil directly onto the shower floor while you are showering. The steam from the water will create a natural diffuser for the Eucalyptus oil, leaving you with a clear, invigorated feeling. Or try diffusing 2 drops of dōTERRA Eucalyptus with 2 drops of Tangerine and 1 drop of Lime to promote clear airways and to fill your home with a relaxing aroma with the added benefit of uplifting your emotions and clearing your mind.
Do you ever experience anxious feelings during the winter months and holidays? dōTERRA’s new Magnolia Touch oil has a fruity and floral aroma that eases *anxious feelings and promotes relaxation. I personally love doTERRA Magnolia Touch and it’s light and sweet fragrance. Combined with Fractionated Coconut oil in a roll-on bottle, ’'s easily applicable when you are in need of uplifting.
“Apply to your wrists or bottoms of your feet to create feelings of calmness and relaxation during the hectic holidays. dōTERRA Magnolia Touch is nourishing to the skin, add it to your daily routine to help your skin feel moisturized and smooth. Offer this new oil as a gift to a loved one who may feel overwhelmed and needs comfort during a difficult time.”

Everyone always talks about how incredible it is to be in Aviation but nobody everyone will talk about how to get started. Let this be the post of all post that list my opinion about training for Corporate Flight Attendant training in 2018. If you like to see the world and travel in luxury, than keep reading. If you have been working in the service industry like yachting and find that you are at a dead end in your career, taking your career 50,000 feet might be the next step.
How Did I Get Started In Aviation?
My grandfather was a pilot back in WWII. He would tell me all about his war stories as I was growing up in Washington State. I didn't get to know aircraft until I started my career in the USCG at Air Station Opalocka Miami. I was an Airedale, a junior mechanic and the only female on deck among 150 men. Back in those days women didn't get much respect on the flight deck. Thought It was still a mans world back then, being the only female was the least of my worries, I just wanted to fly. I loved working on the Dolphin HHelicopters that went flew search and rescue missions over South Florida’s Beaches. I loved going up as the 'Duck' for swimmer training.
Even thought I went to medical school for Oriental Medicine my love for fly never went away. After my career on yachts and cruise ships I decided to make a big career transition and circle back around to aviation again. Living in Ft Lauderdale is the perfect stomping ground for getting back into aviation. South Florida is a popular destination for high net worth clients and there more private jet operators in Florida than in any other state.
Finding the right training program was a mission that I am going to save you from.
What's The Difference Between Corporate Aviation and Commercial?
There are major differences between flying on a Business jet and flying commercially. Business jet cabin attendants, focuses on five star silver service. They anticipating guest needs, being available at a moments notice while looking your best and being nurturing making every flying experience comfortable, safe and unforgettable. There are a handful of schools that provide training to get your foot in the door. Only one of them has 98% of their graduates flying. I'm going to give you what I know about each of them and my highest recomendation.
Beyond and Above is the oldest school in the industry. They run classes once a month at their location close to Fort Lauderdale Executive Airport. Training takes place in the classroom with a few on location walk through. It's a one week course. yet there is no follow through to help graduates get placed on their first aircraft. This was the first course I took and felt that the information could be updated and improved with industry professionals who are directly affiliated with private jets to teach the course.
This training facility although very accessable for those living on the west coast, placement on aircraft is not guaranteed. I have followed a few of their graduates on IG. After attempting to communicate with them, I gave up when I never got a reply. LA is expensive no matter what kind of training you do. I think that school does well because it's THE training for private jet attendants on the west coast.
Business jet pilots get their in flight safety training to FACTs. Every year crew are required to do a reoccurant training. FACTs has great programs but none that are focused on service which is very imant skill for cabin attendants at entry level. FACTs is the most expensive training around and recommended to take once you are a solid cabin attendant with a charter or private company.
Flight Safety is semisimilar to FACTs training and is also very competitive. It's main focus is safety. It's more ideal to take this course as a reoccurant or to have the company you work for pay for the program. There is no sliver service or five star service training involoved.
If you want to take your service skills to the next level, Davichi is the training you want to have under your belt. This training course is the only Butler training course I have seen in Florida. It's a new school and they are adding courses and qualifications to their curriculum.
VVIPIntl Flight Attendant Training is by far the best training that I have experienced. VVIP is a new school and growing fast. Lauren Piers has been around business aviation all her life and has over 10 years flying on every type of business jet there is. I love VVIP because training take place in the field, VVIP gives you a resume template, resume writing coaching, professional head shots and more. VVIP is an agency that does everything they can to get you flying right away. Training consist of sliver service, crew management resources, on jet training, visits to local fix based operators, water safety, on site catering visit and catering all week. Simulated water ditching experience and special networking events. Lauren is personable, graceful and a strong business woman who has your best interest at heart. I love her and what she is doing for women around the world. Lauren provides top notch training. You will leave training with a team of sisters to help you get in the business from pre flight to post flight. A week after the training I was found myself busy fixing my resume and additional documents to send out to seveal companies I became familiar with through training. Within the first week I landed four flights with one of the worlds billion dollar company.
Are you ready to start your course? For 10% off, mention this blog to Lauren when you call VVIP.

You can book a call with VVIP and qualify for 10% of your training.
Now that you have a brief over view of the best schools in the country. I would love to hear your comments and suggestions.
Over the past few weeks I’ve taken a little hiatus out to Starke Florida. While my purpose is to plant the seed among country folk, I got to sit back and breathe in some fresh air. With every person I met, I learned a new story that reflected a lesson to learn from.
For the first time in never I met a bunch of real hunters who rise before dawn craving the rush to bring fresh deer meat home.
There was something even more special about my visit. It’s the time of year I decided to go that reminded me
of how meaning full Chinese Medicine is.
We experience the same cycles that occur in nature. You see Autumn follows on the tail of the harvest, signaling that it is time to prepare for winter. The sap of trees settles into the interior, sinking down toward the roots.
With Fall comes a sense of gathering in, stocking up, harvest time, mingled with a sense of loss as the light begins to fade and the air chills. It is a time to eliminate what is unnecessary and become aware of what is essential.
Optimal health, a shift in consciousness and how we look at what out most valuable asset is reminds me how special we are to live in this life.
Teaching doctors what health is and how to achieve it.
Reducing the amount of medication and eating more organic, walking among the trees and spending time in community. Gathering, sharing, laughing and enjoying the very essence of life.
Power of Autumn and the Organ that Represents it
The organ system that shares the power of this season is the Lung. Corresponding to the temperament of autumn, the Lung pulls in and refines the Qi, (energy) sending it downward to nourish our roots.
The skin also a reflection of the Lung protects against external invasion and safeguards internal resources. Since Autumn is a dry season, we need to protect ourselves from cold air evaporation of moisture from our skin. Moistening, softening, and nurturing foods for this time include white rice, white beans, pears, radishes, sea vegetables, potatoes, cabbage, turnips and parsnips.
Breathe oil supports and promotes respiratory health giving the lungs something to be happy about.
Breathe is a remarkable blend of essential oils including Laurel Leaf, Peppermint, Eucalyptus, Melaleuca, Lemon, Cardamom, Ravintsara, and Ravensara.
Diffuse, inhale directly from palms, or rub on chest or feet when seasonal and environmental threats are high.
Use when outdoors to minimize the effects of seasonal threats.
Diffuse at bedtime for a restful environment.
Over the past week I grew a little attached to a new fall blend. 3drops of Vetiver, 4 wintergreen and 3 sandalwood in my hand with coconut oil to assist in grounding my emotions and keeping me aware while meeting with so many people.
Essential oils in every home is my life goal. Only now are doctors and nurses paying a little more attention to what is replacing a lot of the toxic medication our country is dealing with. I believe Mother nature will
win the battle that we have all been confused about.
Join me for more lessons on essential oils
Say ‘Bye Falecia’ to seasonal threats and work with me.

Acupuncture is a system that can influence the promotion of health and well-being, prevention of illness, treatment of various medical conditions.
The World Health Organization recognizes the use of acupuncture in the treatment of a wide range of medical problems including:
Digestive disorders: gastritis and hyperacidity, spastic colon, constipation, diarrhea.
Respiratory disorders: Sinusitis, sore throat, bronchitis, asthma and recurrent chest infection
Neurological and muscular disorders: headaches, facial tics, neck pain, rib neuritis, frozen shoulder, tennis elbow, various forms of tendinitis, low back pain, sciatica and osteoarthritis.
Urinary, menstrual and reproductive problems.
Acupuncture is useful resolving physical problems related to tension and stress and emotional conditions.
According to Chinese Medicine Qi flows through the body via 14 primary meridians.
To strengthen the flow of Qi or remove blockages in the meridians, a small strike flexible needle is inserted just under the skin at certain specific points along the channel.
Acupuncture leads to real physiologic changes in the body. Numerous studies have shown that inserting needles unto the skin stimulates nerves in the muscles.
The stimulation sends impulse up the spinal cord to a relatively primitive part of the brain known as the limbic system as well as to the mid brain and the pituitary gland.
signals lead to the release of endorphins and monoamines, chemicals that block pain signals in the spinal cord and brain.
In my experience, Chinese Medicine treats the body as a whole and aims to achieve balance and harmony.
I use essential oils, chinese herbs and nutrition therapy to achieve this.
I invite you to connect with me in the Circle on Facebook to learn more.
One in five women bleed so heavily during their periods that they have to put their normal lives on hold just to deal with the heavy blood flow.
Bleeding is considered heavy if it interferes with normal activities. Blood loss during a normal menstrual period is about 5 tablespoons, but if you have heavy menstrual bleeding, you may bleed as much as 10 to 25 times that amount each month. You may have to change a tampon or pad every hour, for example, instead of three or four times a day.
Heavy menstrual bleeding can be common at various stages of your life—during your teen years when you first begin to menstruate and in your late 40s or early 50s, as you get closer to menopause.
A few oils that help soothe the discomfort are Womens Blend whisper and Montly Blend Clary Calm.
More over, the way we are understanding our menses and cycle is changing the way we feel and think about ourself. Kris LA.c and course creator of Feminine Cycle 101 express how sacred our cycle is.
Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) Looks at our cycles in a different way. The time from the start of your period to the start of the next one. It is a view that is guided by nature, Daoist principles and yin/yang theory. These principles are based on eating and living according to the rhythms of the seasons and your body’s own unique qualities, which leads to greater health and balance. By being mindful of how your cycle’s rhythms mirror the ebb and flow of the natural world, you can achieve a deeper, more intuitive understanding of your body.
According to NY Chi Acupuncture.
Enroll, understand what you body is telling you by learning about your cycle from Kris. It’s no secret and natrually we can evolve through our cycles mor organicly without all the painful mess.
Join the discussion on how Chinese Medicine explains how using essential oils are a great option for a more natural solution during that time of the month.
You know what painful periods are like. Have you ever felt what a reoccuring UTI is like? What about infertility? Well Millennials might not know What I mean but xennial will.
Buttercup let me tell you something that you wish you knew long before that day you thought all this was normal.
Its not ok that we have painful periods. That’s out body telling us we need to pay attention.
Now I’m a Xennial, I’m talking to millennials because, let’s just face it, taking OTC (over the counter) headache medicine is for the baby boomers.
When it comes to our health, we know more now and we are more aware of our body the. we have ever been. The bottom line, we want to be free of high medical bills and long waits at the Doctors office. Right?
So I brought in some reinforcement.
I brought one of my colleagues to talk about some of the most trying issues that can be handled more successfully with Acupuncture.

Today, I write from my chair by the pool, excited to share with you how to travel the world in the most luxurious way.
Traveling is in my blood. My dad was military and we lived all over the world. That’s when I had a taste of wanderlust. You too can live this life of luxury and see the world if you are ready to pick up and do YOU.
In the UK a lot of college graduates take a year out to travel and work. It’s just the norm. We hardly hear about work travel opportunities in the States.
What are your options?
Yacht Life: Live on a yacht like those crazies on Below Deck. 😂 Yachting is tough. It’s a small industry and you do have to prove yourself. I got placed through Bluewater Recruitment Agency
Cruiseships: I had a blast as an Acupuncturist on Holland America Nieuw Amsterdam. Crew work long hrs and sometimes have long contracts. However, everyone makes the best of it.
Join The Military: That’s what I did. Primarly for college money. I wanted to get ahead in life. My military career was a scarifice and rewarding at the same time. It paid for medical school and gave me a chance to regroup and plan out what I really wanted to do with my life.
Corporate Flight Attendant: Fly on a private jet with an owner or for a charter company.
Yep, I’m not talking about the commerical kind of flight attendant. I’m talking about the kind that fly on private jets.
You are probably wondering, “Antonika, how did you come up with this idea?” I was reminded of the opportunity.
You are probably think, wow you do everything. Well actually, I have lived a very experienced life. By no means does this mean that I won’t practice Acupuncture. In fact being an Acupuncturist makes the deal sweeter. Because of this addition to my bag of tricks, I can take Acupuncture to the next level and show you places Chinese Medicine can take you.
I believe, when one expands with experience, we see ourself outside the limiting belief of I can’t to the empowering belief of I CAN!
Being a Corprate Flight Attendant isn’t for everyone that’s for sure. There’s a certain kind of flair for elegance, a way of words and a particular way of being. Not to mention, we are talking about a life saving service to the enth degree.
To make my point of view more clear, I convey my story enroute to becoming a Corporate Flight Attendant in my vblog, Beyond and Above Private Jet Flight Attendant Training.
In any case, traveling for fun or traveling to get paid, the most valuable thing you can do for yourself is supplement yourself with dependable nutrition.
Traveling means, changing time zones, layovers, crowded airports and communal areas. No matter where we go we live in toxic enviorments that weighs on our adrenals and slow us down. During training, Long Life Vitality supplements helped me stay focus, alert and feeling nourished.
Lifelong health and vitality depend on many factors including diet, physical activity, weight management, rest, stress management, exposure to toxins, and inherited genetic predisposition for disease or wellness. While some of these variables are beyond our complete control, breakthrough scientific research is revealing many ways we can influence—and even control—significant factors of aging and wellness. A long life full of vitality and healthy aging begins with providing your cells with essential nutrients and metabolic factors to help them perform optimally.
The primary benifits of taking Long Life Vitality Supplements are:
- General wellness and vitality
- Antioxidant and DNA protection
- Energy metabolism
- Bone health
- Immune function
- Stress management
- Cardiovascular health
- Healthy hair, skin, and nails
- Eye, brain, nervous system
- Liver function and digestive health
- Lung and respiratory health
- Gentle on stomach
- Does not contain genetically modified material, dairy-free
If you are considering any of these options, let me know how it goes in the comments. I have had the pleasure of helping a lot of my friends see this world from a porthole.
I hope to inspire you to see the world from 45,000 feet. You can find more details about the training I did at Beyond and Above Corporate Flight Attendant Training.
If you are making an income while traveling and want to learn more about supplementing yourself, staying healthy and getting all those health benifits I mentioned above, you can join my email list and order the LLV from my website.
Oh and feel free to share your adventures whereever you are in the world too. I love to ready your comments.
You are hot, your cold. First it’s yes now its Hell No!

Let's do some self-evaluation. If you don't think you've come far enough why not have a look at where you stand.
If You Look Back On The Past Year, Did You Get What You Wanted?
In the past year have you achieved the goals that you set yourself up to achieve?
Are you living your passion? Your dream?
If you meet yourself would you like yourself?
Right now you are taking personal inventory. Observing, looking back at what you set yourself up for and checking in with how and where you are at achieving that goal.
Why is this important?
Well, we get to look at what kind of distractions are taking us away from being in the flow. In the past month, I have had the pleasure of working with a coach.
With my coach I have learned how to become more aware of where I am and what's going on in my body.
Why is this important? Well if you ever wondered why we experience pain and discomfort and wonder why or how we acquired this pain and discomfort, we can find that answer by just being more aware of how we are feeling.
Chinese Medicine suggests that when the body is in pain, there is stagnation. With treatment, using specific acupuncture points we can move that pain and feel freer.
What creates that pain, to begin with? Long-term Stress, anxiety, pensiveness.
So many things to do in so little time. My friend all we have is time and time is our most precious currency.
Why stay stuck in a relationship, in a 9-5 that you don't love or just being unhappy?
What if we sacrifice our will and desire for a more fulfilling way of living by surrendering the mind to a more soulful experience?
Hey, true strength comes through letting go.
I've held back not feeling good enough to do what I love to do.
I would keep my self up at night thinking about how to do all these things I've been wanting to do. When, if I would just open my eyes and ears the answer would be right in front of my face.
You see, day after day little Sienna sings Let it go from the Disney Movie Frozen. It goes a little like this.
Let It Go Let It Go,
Can't hold it back anymore
Let it go let it go
Turn away and slam the door
I don't care what they're going to say
Let the storm rage on
The cold never bothered me anyway.
Hell Yeah, let that shit go!
I remember being told work hard and your efforts will reward you. Well I've worked hard all my life. Now, I much rather be in the flow.
Want a little extra help? Sometimes we have to find that motivation our self. I slap on some essential oils, go for a run in the morning and get to blocking out my day, my week and my month.
As I am writing this blog I can't help but feel so passionate about what life has for me next.
In fact, I put on this essential oil that not only makes me feel grounded, but one that invites us to live by trusting the abundant flow.
I bet you didn't think essential oils had this kind of power. Believe me, they support us mentally and physically.
In fact, everyone I've ever used essential oils on is so blissed out and their mindset shifts from feeling shitty to feeling something else.
I'm not trying to sell you on another oil, my friend. I am selling you on your own dream, your passion.
Up-level your game, create a new routine an new habit a new something that will get you wanting more.
We are not failing at life, we just need to keep practicing how to make better decisions in life and learning how to become so aware that we are creating what we want and not getting stuck in the creation of what we don't want.
If you want to know more about essential oils and emotions I suggest getting this book Emotions and Essential Oils. Or just ask me here.
I want you to tell write in the comment section. What motivates you? Fear? Getting things done? Love?
It's not always about what your doing or not doing. Sometime its just about BEING.
How do I do it? It's called Self Discovery Life Mastery.
Do you need a little advice on what kind of essential oils would be good for you to get unstuck? Something that supports mental health so you can get on with your life mission?
Maybe you just want to live a lot healthier? Email me at email@example.com

School is starting your rushing around to get supplies, clothes, preparing after school plans and PTA meetings.
Since schools make lunch for kids, we tend to turn a blind eye to what our kids should be eating
Does preventative care sound like too much work?
A recent study says most people think preventive care is expensive, they don’t know what they need and some people don’t make it a priority.
With a little bit of planing and prior thought we can feel more productive, happier and healthier.
Will you give this a try?
for a whole list of recipes check out Jeff Permacks list. I makes smoothies from this list every day.
Traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) is one of the most common complementary and alternative medicines used in the treatment of patients with cancer worldwide. However, the clinical effect of TCM on patients with pancreatic cancer remains unclear. In my Vblog I explain why I give great smoothie recipes, aromatherapy support that help and promote your existing health care lifestyle.
First, a little background about poor pancreatic health.
Pancreatic cancer occurs when cells in the tissues of the pancreas form a malignant growth, or tumor. These cancerous cells are generally found in the ducts that carry pancreatic juices to the small intestine, however, a rare form of pancreatic cancer develops in the cells that form insulin. In the early stages of pancreatic cancer, an individual might not exhibit signs of illness, however as the cancer progresses, the following symptoms can appear: weight loss, weakness, loss of appetite, yellow discoloration of the skin and/or eyes due to jaundice, nausea, vomiting, and pain in the upper abdomen or back.
Chinese Medicine aims to treat the root cause and not just the symptom. In order to achieve this patterns in the body present themselves and are carefully diagnosied and treated with Acupuncture, Herbs, excercise and massage therapy and nutritional therapy.

Litsea oil has been used for hundreds of years in ancient Chinese and Indian health care to treat digestive-related issues. The acidic quality of the oil helps to stimulate a reaction in your digestive system that allows you to digest food faster and can be used to ease flatulence by preventing the formation of gasses in your intestines.Read More
We can almost bet that just as fall begins to roll around immune system become compromised and one by one kids at school start getting sick by the day.
The cool thing about TCM (Traditional Chinese Medicine) is that we look at external diagnostic factors that tell us what’s going on inside our body.Read More
There are three reasons why I would move to New Zealand in a heartbeat. Can you guess them?
1.) That’s where Keith Urban is from and that’s what I want
2.) Its the home to International Dark Sky Reserve, which is one of the best stargazing sites on earth.
3.) It's where Manuka is indigenous to.
- Manuka blends well with Peppermint and Bergamot as a personal fragrance. Layer them onto your skin one at a time, first by rolling on Manuka, then roll on some Peppermint Touch and a drop of Bergamot to the desired area.
- Change is inevitable. Whether we choose the next path or not, all you need is a few minutes of courage to get to that next step. Roll Manuka into your palms, cup your hands over your nose and inhale to promote courage and inner strength.
(Three other health benefits that are at the top off my list before I step out of the house to go on a date.)
This oil promotes strong immunity of the body.
Smelling good and staying dry is an all-time must right now. The Miami heat has me melting from the house to my car. Staying dry on a date and free from any armpit odor is my pet peve.
How do you make your deodorant?
Who loves Keith Urban?
New Zealand is a country in the southwestern Pacific Ocean consisting of 2 main islands, both marked by volcanoes and glaciation. Capital Wellington, on the North Island, is home to Te Papa Tongarewa, the expansive national museum. Wellington’s dramatic Mt. Victoria, along with the South Island’s Fiordland and Southern Lakes, stood in for mythical Middle Earth in Peter Jackson’s "Lord of the Rings" films.
I love essential oil’s, but I love selling Essential oils even more! They are tools that are so accessible. I never let my friends buy from a grocery store when I can give them a 25% discount, save them up to 55% a month and be confident in connecting with a health care plan that probably works better than insurance.Read More
My love for Health Freedom runs DEEP!
Not everyone knows about essential oil, but most everyone is curious. That's when I come in. I love using them talking about them and sharing them. I'm not the only one, in fact, millions of people around the world are too.
What drives me about using essential oils is where they come from and how they are the same essence that Chinese Medicine doctors use for thousands of years. Not only Chinese but also Ayurvedic doctors too.
Spearmint is the oil of confidence speech. It's great for anyone who would like some extra support expressing themselves verbally. It also aids with occasional indigestion, bad breath, eases respiratory issues, skin care, helps with focus and fatigue, has calming and cooling properties and more!
Tangerine is the oil of cheer and creativity. This one can lift the darkest of moods and helps us create the lightness of heart we see in children. Tangerine reminds us to be curious and filled with wonderment and to release the excessive sense of duty and rigid standards we have for ourselves. For our physical bodies it helps boost our immune systems, antioxidant and cell protection, it;s super uplifting, helps all digestive upset, helps swelling (and cellulite!), skin irritations, respiratory issues, boosts metabolism and weight loss and helps aid circulation. Tangerine has been used for over 3000 years in integrative medicine.
Lime is the oil of zest for life. Who doesn't want more of that right?! Lime is renewing, energizing and purifying. It instills courage and cheer in the heart and helps us stay in a space of gratitude of life. For our physical bodies, it can ease an occasional sore throat, it also helps with respiratory, digestive and urinary issues, memory and clarity, it's uplifting and eases inflammation. Fun fact... lime juice used to be used by British sailors to prevent scurvy. Little gut critters don't like Lime!
Today you can try all three of these oils for ONE! This offer won't last so if you like to know more about essential oils and want to try them out now is the time!

Can thoughts change our life?
Do Thoughts affect the way my body feels?
If I change the way I think how will this change the course of my life?
The answer to those questions above,
Have you ever heard of mantras? Mantras are words that affirm our subconscious to shift negative habits and patterns. We can create our own mantras or practice ancient ones. Mantras historically were recited in Sanskrit. The way the Sanskrit words are pronounced evokes vibration that creates motion towards what you are manifesting.
While I was in medical school I practiced reciting 'Om Gum Ganapatayei Namah' which is the manta for removing obstacles. Then I began to write my own. Writing my own mantras I believe brought me to a deeper understand and gratitude for myself and those around me.
The words we use and speak carry meaning and and have the power to influence the way we feel, the choices we make and the reality we create.
Our minds are like complex computes. The windows you browse (your consciousness), the websites you visit, what you tweet, post on Facebook or Instagram and the kind of content you consume informs your thoughts, opinions and perceptions and guide your understanding of the world. When we shut down the computer the internet doesn't stop. It keeps thinking of those websites and post we were just looking at.
I believe this is why meditation is one of the five branches in Chinese Medicine we can not live without.
Christie Marie Sheldon said,
“If you look at the world the way I see it, you will then be tapped into the causal plane where everything can be changed. Because everything you see in the out-picturing of your life really is the effect of your life. And everything that created it was created by all your thoughts, beliefs, ideologies and every judgment you've ever made. Those points of you make up your reality. That’s why your life is the way it is.”
You are in control of your destiny, your health, the choices you make and the thoughts you create. I set myself on a quest to discover how I could be better at living. I started working with a self-realization coach. Umi taught me how to tap into my present moment awareness by observing without judgment the world around me.
Every day I work on those thoughts, giving thanks to my most close and intimate friends.
I change up my mantras here are a few that transform my feelings:
'I am a conscious creator in a field of unlimited possibilities'
'When I speak from the heart, the vibration of my beingness illuminates life'
'Stillness and solitude erupts creativity and expansion'

Shocking Neurotoxins: Pollutants We Didn't Know That Are Killing Our Home
10 Statistics you want to know.
So there I was riding along in the Van enjoying my vacation away from the cruise ships. Then all of a sudden I get this wiff of that purple cleaner that reminds me of my life living in Spain a lifetime ago.
It was the kind of smell that stops you in your tracks, blinds you and has you holding your breath, dying of suffocation and grasping for air as you run about a block down the road.
You know that feeling right?
Let me tell you something. I'm not a scientist or some know it all but I know this much, when I worked on Yachts I sure the hell didn't use any of those toxic chemicals. We learn in Chief Stewardess school, cleaning with toxins is not cleaning. I'm learning every day how much of these chemicals are killing us in our own home.
Check this out:
kid's these days have chemical exposures from birth that their parents didn't have until they were adults. Now that children are exposed to toxins at an earlier age than adults, there is more of a chance to develop a disease like cancer.
Every heard of Formaldehyde? A total cancer-causing agent that damages the body's neurological connectors.
Every day more chemicals have been introduced into our environment in the last 20 years.
For example, bleach can cause suffocation and most of us have used bleach to 'Clean'. There is more.
Looks at these wild numbers.
