When I look back on the past year I say to myself, 'Hell yeah girl you smashed it!' 'What's next?'. And you should too.

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? 

Alaska 2019. Happiness isn't about getting what you want all the time. It's about loving what you have and being grateful for it.

Alaska 2019. Happiness isn't about getting what you want all the time. It's about loving what you have and being grateful for it.

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. 

My colleague on the ship left me this note one day. Highly illegal. But it made my day and worth the risk. Motivation can come in the form of a little note like this.

My colleague on the ship left me this note one day. Highly illegal. But it made my day and worth the risk. Motivation can come in the form of a little note like this.

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

What If The Body is a Mirror of How You are Living Your Life

What if the body is a Mirror of how you are living your life? What would your reflection look like?

What if the body is a Mirror of how you are living your life? What would your reflection look like?

What if I told you that caring for your body is the least important thing about your health? 

What if I told you that Western medicine has it all backwards?

If the body doesn't shape how we live our lives, what if it were the mirror of how we live our life?

The body speaks to us in small voices. Many people are ignoring those voices. People who are suffering are fatigued and not sleeping at night.

I want to tell you a story about a Dr. who's life changed when she stopped being a western doctor and started practicing like a eastern medicine doctor.  

Dr. Lisa Rankin, she had everything. The home, the boat, the retirement account. She was also twice divorced, taking three medications to control her high blood pressure, diagnosed with precancerous cells in her cervix and need surgery. She felt so disconnected, spiritually tapped out that she didn't even know who she was.

Suddenly the perfect storm hit. Her brother suffered liver failure, her dog died, her father died and her husband cut two fingers off with a table saw all within two weeks of each other.

"When life grows apart you either grow or your grow a tumor"

'When life grows apart you either grow or you grow a tumor' Lisa Rankin

For Dr. Lisa she decided to grow. 

People lose their libido, suffering from aches and pains.

Doctors are running test and find nothing but something is clearly wrong but nobody can figure out what it is. 

It's time to stop the madness and stop doing what you should and start doing what you feel. 

What really makes the body sick?

What is real medicine?

It matters that we eat well, that you see the doctor but what really matters is healthy relationships.

Being spiritually connected, expressing your self creatively, having a healthy sex life, living in a health environment. Being mentally healthy and all the things that nurture the body. 

This is data coming out of Harvard University, Yale and John Hopkins.  

Tap into your inner pilot lite, Dr. Rakin says. That's the divine spark that always knows about the truth of your body. Your biggest fan, its the biggest healer better than any doctor.

The new wellness model is taking all the things that make you whole. It's what Chinese medicine has been doing all a long. Everything that makes you whole is love and gratitude and pleasure. They are the glue that holds everything together.

If you have a challenging system ask yourself what is out of balance.

What's the real diagnosis?

What can you do about it?

how can you open your self to more possibility?

When we let our true self be seen we generate love, increase oxytocin. In return this generates love and intimacy. We heal from the inside out. 

What does your body need to get healthy? 

What needs to be tweaked in your life?

We need to treat the root cause. What really makes the body sick are unhealthy relationships, unhealthy environments, poor mental health.  

If you are suffering from what plagues your world you can write the perception for your self. Its a recipe that comes from one of the five branches of Chinese Medicine. That prescription is in the application of essential oils daily. 

Essential oils assist us in taking an honest look within ourself.  The create the environment for healing.  They prepare our emotional soul so the yuck an muck can be removed with ease.  When we combine the oils with emotional work we reap the fruits of our labor. 

For example, Birch is a tree that is tall, therefore it is the oil of support.

It helps us feel supported when we feel unsupported by friends and family.  

It helps us feel rooted, helps individuals face trials so they can stand strong like a tall tree.

Birch teaches us that there is more to life than pain and with the right support, one can be held up and sustained. 

Though out my time on ships, I saw past the physical pain that often landed on my table. In addition to the healing practice of Acupuncture. Essential oils facilitated that emotional support that resulted in chronic pain. 

Your body needs the essence of nature to strip off that mask that that is keeping you from living your authentic self. 

If you are just discovering essential oils, just curious or really wanting to take control of your health in a way that western medicine is only beginning to understand book a complementary 1 on 1 session with me. I will teach you exactly what you need to know according to your health goals.

If you don't believe me, I've attached Dr. Lisa's TED talk to give you an even more deeper understanding of how important our emotional health truly is. 

I have what you need to help you find lasting peace of mind about the pain people are living with. 

Take care of your body, its the only place you have to live
