Now just because I write about all these healthy things, doesn’t always mean I do everything right. I too like many of you have ups and downs. My emotional roller coster often times affects my desire to eat. I have noticed that after treating a guest that presents with these similar feelings within a few treatment, appetite returns.Read More
If you have never tried Acupuncture you might love❤️ making your green drinks like one.
The main question I ask my patients when learning about their eating habits is,
Do you drink greens drinks?🤷🏻♂️ And What do you put in them?🤷🏽♀️
Nutrition and The study of Chinese Herbs are very important parts of the five branches within Chinese Medicine. 🎎
In fact the food we eat have theraputic properties and can benefit the patterns of deficiency that present themselves when the body is out of balance. That’s what this movie Eating You Alive is about.
It blows me away that one Dr. 🧬 in this movie pulls out his perscription pad and instead of writing out a drug he writes out a smoothie formula! That’s exactly what I do and I see even my own families health change rapidly.
Have a look at my vblog about micronizing your fruits 🍎 and 🌽 for a morning drink.
Not sure how to make a smoothie?

Let me know what you think 🤯. I love to see your questions about what Chinese Medicine is all about.🧧

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.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org

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.
There will be detours and experiences that keep you from observing yourself. Observing gives birth to understanding. Order is born from understanding disorder. Be still and become more self aware. Return to your meditative state, even for a moment to create what you want to feel and what that feeling really feels like.
Experience each thought and and feeling and then feel what its like to let it go. Live in that moment, in that moment you are creating. Your thoughts are vibration. They are alive and the universe is responding to your every thought.
This is like taking 100% responsibility of the decisions we made and what we subconsciously created. Nobody owes you anything. Be present to the disorder, it brings the knowledge of different possibilities and a different order of things.
You are a conscious being living among unconscious and selfish humans. Something happened to them and then you came along with all this bright light and unconditional love.
oday I write from my amazing cabin en route to Alaska. After four days at sea we learned that Nicaragua is in civil unrest. Our schedule port day has turned into another day at sea.
After a spin class I felt the desire to offer my thoughts and reflection on this deliberate life I’m learning how to create while listing to Tony Robins 2018 UPW playlist. Thinking back on a conversation I had with a guest earlier this week, I’m often asked how have I done so many things in my life yet be so young?
I smile and reply by saying, ‘My passion to transform other human being’s lives transcend through my curiosity to have many life’s experiences’.
I continued to share, you know I’m forty years old this year. I sometimes feel like I’m behind. So many younger humans are growing much faster than I. Then I asked,
‘what is being forty years old like?’ To my one guest full of wisdom and curiosity at the same time.
He’s reply surprised me and set me off in a gaze into the view from my life size panoramic treatment room window.
Most times my guest have this curiosity about Chinese Medicine. This guest in particular appeared to be a messenger and shared these incredible words of wisdom.
This week has been an incredible day at sea. We are on an Irish charter but most of my guest are American. Except for this one special lady.
She came into my wonderful office at sea with bright eyes and curiosity about how to treat her leg pain. I see leg pain daily, nothing unusual. Infact its the most common condition I see in my field. Within about three days the issue is resolved.
Our first treatment together was successful, however something strange happened in the moment of her second treatment with me. She was in tears on the table, sobbing. She wasn’t crying because she was in pain. It was a different kind of cry. Something deeper, more emotional.
I quicky checked my schedule for my next guest and ran back to attend to my guest needs.
I asked, what else is going on. She replied,
“My husband passed seven months ago. Its strange that I am having a breakdown because I’ve been holding everything together.”
The body has a funny way of dealing with pain. Infact emotional pain pierces through our physical body and affects The musculoskeletal system. It was clear that moving the physical pain triggered emotional pain. This is the best thing that could happen in a treatment and my guest agreed.
I love how eastern medicine approaches the body mind and spirit and one entity. They are not seprate but one in the same.
Healing begins with healing the heart. After I had quickly removed the needles I addresses a new protocol, guided my guest through a breathing meditation.
Acupuncture pierces the heart, the soul and heals the body in such an elloquent way. With love kindness and hope, when western medicine over medicates us with pills to cover up the pain.
No matter where we come from, how long the journey or how hard we fall, our soul our spirit needs love just as much as the human living in it.
When I first started working on a cruise ship the most challenging thing for me was having available vegetarian and vegan options. I would have to sneak items from the salad bar in the Lido to my room so I can make a green smoothie in the morning. (Highly illegal for any crew member BTW)Read More
While I visited Sarasota for the first time, my mind had been shifting through thoughts and emotions.
I have been in between several thoughts of how to move forward in life. I'm am preparing for an adventure, that will take me back on a journey into far away places.
Yet, I struggle letting go of things that don't serve me. Have you ever been there before?
There is growth in letting go. Letting go of a relationship, stagnate feelings, negative thoughts about money.
The gift is in the freedom of knowing that what serves you is your ability to not let your emotions rule you and releasing what's holding you back from what you are meant to be.
Honestly, negative beliefs has shut me down.
Using the "Decoding Your Beliefs" make a list of your personal negative beliefs. You can carry on adding any negative beliefs to your list as they come to you at a later stage. To see how those limiting beliefs have unnecessarily hampered your success, you could choose to write an example of when any such belief has prevented you from doing or achieving something you wanted. For example a belief like "I am bad with money" or "I am a spendthrift" is likely to have left you with a rather unhealthy bank balance.
Take this statement, turn it around and make it a possitive.
"I have an abundance of financial wealth". "Money is energy that flows freely" . 'My bank account is healthy, and 'The service I provide is valuable'. 'Others need me and need my services.'
