Boost Your Immunity In Winter

 

 

January is said to be the month that hosts many dreaded colds and flu bugs.  Not only that, but it is historically known as one of the most depressing months in North America. 

 

Why is it a dull month to many? I think it is the lack of sunshine, flu’s and colds, and a dull feeling after the excitement of the holidays. 

 

Many people find themselves battling cold after cold, having less energy than they would like and even feeling alittle blue.

 

But, rather than grab for cough syrup and cold remedies, how about boosting your immune system so you are rock solid and don’t get sick at all?

 

Wouldn’t you like to cruise through winter healthy, happy and have boundless amounts of energy?

 

I know I would!

 

Lets Clear Some Things Up First

 

Many people believe that if you go out into the cold weather dressed improperly, you will catch a cold.  Whether that is an old wives tale or a good parental scare tactic, it’s just not true. 

 

Cold weather actually boost your IMMUNE SYSTEM.  Going from cold to hot gets your lymphatic system moving, heart pumping and immune system engaged.  It’s like giving your immune system a workout!

 

What About the Germs?

 

Do you think that there are actually more germs floating around in the winter than in the summer?

 

Not true!

 

The germs are still there.  It’s actually the sun’s UVB & UVA Rays that increase your absorption of Vitamin D keeping your immune system strong in the summer months.   

 

Yes, you still get Vitamin D in the winter just less is absorbed from less UVB & UVA Rays.

 

I should mention that people are generally happier in the summer.  With happiness comes less stress, and since stress is a major immune system inhibitor, it’s no wonder less people get sick in the summer.

 

Could It Be Less Exercise?

 

Like it or not, for the most part, people are not as active in the winter months.  They stay indoors more often than not, and don’t engage in as many sports.  Even getting to the gym can prove to be a big feat for some. 

 

Exercise improves circulation, stimulates the immune system, detoxifies your body and raises energy levels.  Not only is it essential for good immunity, but it gives you a good boost of 'feel good hormones.'

 

So, exercise is essential for warding off flu bugs for sure.

 

7 Tips for Increasing Immunity

 

1. Exercise – Make sure that you are getting at least 30-60 minutes of exercise daily.  This will increase your immunity, help you stay strong and fit and give you the 'joy du vive' you are looking for in the winter.

 

Have you ever noticed that people who exercise in the winter are happier?

 

2. Vitamin D – Supplement with Vitamin D to increase your body’s immunity in the winter months. Vitamin D helps you fight infections of all kinds. 

 

A study in Japan, showed that school aged children taking Vitamin D everyday during the winter, reduced their risk of catching the flu. 

 

The recommended daily intake of Vitamin D is 1000 iu for adults.  But, I have found that most people living in the Northern Hemisphere require more to maintain optimal levels.  Make sure to get tested with your doctor to see where your Vitamin D levels are.

 

You can purchase Vitamin D at health food sotre or online:  Click here for Vitamin D 

 

3. Get Adequate Rest – Let’s face it, even with the dark days upon us, a lot of us have a tendency to stay up way too late.  Lack of rest not only decreases your body’s energy, but also increases your stress levels.  Stress lowers immunity.

 

You should be striving to get to bed by 10pm everyday to keep your body’s energy up and therefore your immunity.

 

4. Probiotics – One of the best immune boosters are good flora or Probiotics.  Did you know that good good flora make up the first line of defense for your immune system.  Good flora also create about 80% of your immunity.  So, it goes without saying that to have great immunity, you definitely need to have a strong gut health.

 

I personally supplement with good flora containing fermented foods like kefir and kombucha on a daily basis. You can also use Probiotics, which can be found in your natural health food store or in my store.

 

Buy Probitoics Here   

 

Make sure you buy a Probiotics that are stored in the fridge to maintain potency.

 

5. Herbal Immune Boosters – There are many Herbal Immune Boosters you can use in the winter for both prevention and treatment.  The key is consistency.  My favorvites include:

  • Echinacea
  • Goji Berries 
  • Maitake Mushrooms
  • Astragalus Root
  • Pine Needles

Echinacea – This is one of the more commonly known immune boosters, but I find that it is not always used correctly.  Echinacea is widely used to fight infections, especially common colds and other upper respiratory infections.  I have also used it at the first signs of mastitis quite effectively. The key is to use it at the first signs of infection: virus or bacteria.

 

So how do you use Echinacea?

 

Firstly, it’s more potent and effective to use a tincture made from fresh Echinacea rather than dried.  Dried Echinacea has normally lost a lot of its potency. 

 

Echinacea tincture can be used on the first signs of a cold or flu.  But, 20-30 drops two to three times a day is usually not that effective.  For the first sign of a cold or infection, Echinacea can be used safely every 1-2 hours 1tsp or 30 drops, until the cold or infection subsides. 

 

As always if you have an infection that does not improve, you should always see a doctor.  Also, if you have an auto-immune disease you should speak with a practitioner before using it.

 

You can purchase Echinacea at health food stores or online.

Goji Berries – For more than 5000 years the Chinese have used Goji Berries as part of their traditional medicine.  It’s known as ‘The Fruit of Longevity;’ having amazing immune enhancing qualities.

 

Goji Berries are loaded with Vitamin C and I love to get it from natural sources. 

 

Most Vitamin C supplements found on store shelves are derived from corn and most likely genetically modified (GMO).  So that’s a big win for Goji Berries.

 

Goji Berries also reduce inflammation, improve resistance to cancer cell growth, nourish blood, reduce allergies & dizziness, improve vision and even help with low back pain. WOW!

 

You can buy Goji Berries in health food stores, grocery stores and online.

Maitake Mushrooms – They contain Beta Glucan, a compound responsible for immune support and macrophages, which are immune cells that eat up viruses.

 

In addition to that, Maitake mushrooms help turn on natural killer cells (NKC), which give viruses the 1-2 punch combo out of your body!

 

Lastly, they are loaded with polysaccharides, reduce inflammation, help with collagen production, energy production and so much more. 

 

I’m sure that in future studies we will see more amazing qualities of this mushroom.

 

You can buy Maitake Mushrooms in health food stores or online.

 

Buy Maittake Mushrooms here

 

Astragalus Root - This is another herb used in Traditional Chinese Medicine as an ENERGY & IMMUNE BOOSTER.  It’s known as an adaptogenic herb, which means it lowers your stress hormone cortisol.  Stress hormones inhibit your immune system, so Astragalus is a powerful herb to keep on hand. 

 

Astragalus also strengthen the lungs, which can lessen your susceptibility to respiratory infections and viruses and contains antioxidants that reduce inflammation. 

 

This is something I like to take everyday in the winter to keep my immune system top notch.

 

You can buy Astragalus at health food stores or online.

 

Buy Astragalus Root here 

 

Pine Needles – Did you know that pine needles are extremely high in Vitamin C & A?  Not only that, but they are also a very powerful antioxidant, antiviral and immune system powerhouse.  Pine Needles have been used for eons by native communities to boost Vitamin C levels, prevent cold and flu. 

 

Pine Needles are great for preventing oxidative stress, beneficial for your skin and hair, and even have been known to improve vision.

 

Pine Needle tea also is antiseptic, helping to prevent bad bacteria and microbes from affecting your body.   They also help treat respiratory cold and infection by expectorating phlegm and neutralizing pathogens found in the sinuses. 

 

All you need are some Pine Needles and a pot of water.  A good handful will do.  Just bring water to a boil, turn off, put Pine Needles in pot, cover and let steep for 15-30mins.  Strain and enjoy. 

 

6. Local Raw Honey – Honey is perhaps one of the best immune system boosters out there.  The world health organization lists honey as a demulcent, which treats coughs.  I have used it for dry cough quite successfully.

 

Raw honey contains bee pollen, which is also known to ward off infections, prevent allergies, and is a natural source of energy.

 

Honey has been extensively studied and has been shown to increase disease fighting polyphenols in the blood.   Polyphenols are part of what makes honey a great choice for both prevention and treatment of colds.

 

7. Laughter - They say laughter is the best medicine.  I think this is more true than we realize. Not only does laughter increase our sense of well being, inner happiness and energy, but it creates a strong immune system.  

 

It is one of the easiest ways to boost immunity.  

 

I think that as adults we tend to laugh less than children.  Perhaps we should take a tip from the kids and be more care-free in life?  

 

So, how can you bring more laughter into your life?  Make a commintment to laugh everyday, even if there is nothing to laugh at.  Some would call this Laughter Yoga.  Simply laugh.  Soon you will be laughing at how silly it is and it will become infectious.  

 

You could also make time to watch a comedy, visit friends (this usually brings about some laughs) and even play with kids.  It doesn't matter how you do it, just make time for laughing each day.

How to Transmute Emotions!

Don’t let negative emotions stop you from healing. 

 

Did you know that negative emotions like anger, fear and hatred work against you if you are trying to heal?

 

They stop you from healing because they inhibit you from feeling love and LOVE HEALS.

 

Dr. Bernie Siegel explains the connection between love and health by saying that when you do not love your life your body suffers.  It’s the ‘good girl’ who gets breast cancer.  She’s the one who takes care of others needs and desires at the expense of her own.

 

The 'good girl' may see love as conforming.  Of course, there are times that conforming is in your best interest. But conforming for love's sake stifles creativity and makes it impossible to live an authentic life. This creates stress and chronic stress leads to illness.

 

People often feel this stress on Monday - the most common day for suicide, heart attacks and illness.

 

Dean Shrock, PhD, author of “Why Love Heals” discovered scientific proof that love heals.  Dr. Shrock was a director of Mind-Body Medicine for 40 cancer centers.  He found that his patients lived much longer than those receiving only conventional medical care.

 

It was not his programs or teachings that made the difference, but the care his patients felt from him.

 

I wonder what would have happened if his patients learned how to love themselves unconditionally.

 

Dr. Shrock defines love as an all pervasive energy that flows through everything.  Connecting emotionally and spiritually is the essence of life and health.

 

He explains that love is oneness.  On a subatomic level, we are all connected. When you experience it, you are resonating with the essence of the universe and who you are. The quantum field flows freely and health is the result. You yourself are source energy.

 

When you love yourself and accept it from others, you naturally attract healthier relationships, healing, and blessings from the universe.

 

Very few people are taught this as children or let alone at all.  So, now is your chance to integrate this knowledge.

 

To make things easier for you I have created a video with an exercise on How to Transmute Emotions that Stop You from Healing.

 

Watch Video.

 


In the video you learned how to transmute negative emotions into healthy emotions.  Doing so allows for more unconditional love to flow through you for better and even optimal health

 

Have questions or comments, write them below.

Digestive Tips for the Holidays

 

 
Do you suffer from fatigue, digestive fullness and gas after a heavy meal?

 

I know I have before.  I wanted to give you some great tips before you set out to visit your friends and loved ones over Christmas Holidays. 

 

We all know that lots of socializing over the holidays, means lots of yummy food and over indulgance.  It can also mean bad food combining, which is a recipe for a gassy bloated couch potato. 

 

Digestive Tips to Reduce and Prevent the Holiday Heaviness in Your Tummy

 

1. Digestive Enzymes with Betain HCL - I love to use 'NOW Super Enzymes.'  I find them to work extremely well for me and most people who use them.  Take 15 mins before eating.  This will help increase your stomach acid so that you can digest a big heavy meal with ease and comfort. They contain Betaine HCL and other plant digestive enzymes to make your digestion work like a well oiled machine. You don't need to feel lethargic after your holiday meal.

 

2. Digestive Bitters - This is another favourite to use before a meal.  Just a teaspoon of digestive bitters 15 mins before eating will get your liver secreting bile, which will increase your stomach acid and other digestive enzymes for better digestion.  

 

3. Apple Cider Vinegar - Just a capful of apple cider vinegar in an ounce or more of water 15 mins before a meal helps to increase your stomach acid.  Some people love Apple Cider Vinegar as much as other enzymes and digestive tricks.  It will help to digest your meal with ease leaving gas and bloating out of the equation. 

 

4.  Peppermint Tea or Peppermint Essential oil - If you don't have any of the above or just forget, you can sip on a cup of peppermint tea after a big meal.  Peppermint tea will help you to move the bloating and digestive heaviness through your digestive tract with ease.  You can also use a high quality essential oil like DoTerra or Young Living peppermint oil.  Just a drop in a warm cup of water will be enough. 

 

So there you have it.  Just some tips to help make your holiday and digestion lighter. 

 

Happy Holidays, Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

How Self-Love Can Help You to be Healthy

 

Your ability to be healthy is greatly dependent on how well you adapt.  This is because when you are adaptable and exposed to different stressors you have an easier time moving through them without being taken out by stress.

 

Let’s face it, STRESS is unavoidable.  You never know when it will show up, the best thing I have found that can be done is have a preventative strategy and adapt to it when it does show up.

 

How Does Stress Effect Your Health?

 

Stress can be the # 1 cause of health problems because it drains your energy and makes you more vulnerable to make poor choices, which can translate to your physical body’s intelligence lowering. 

 

Depending on the amount of energy you invest into the stressors, your body can have trouble coping and regulating autonomic functions like immunity, repairing itself, digesting food, circulating blood, breathing, balancing hormones and even regulating your sleep cycle.

 

There are several health issues linked to stress:

  • High blood pressure
  • Heart problems
  • Asthma
  • Obesity
  • Diabetes type 2
  • Headaches & migraines
  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Gastrointestinal disorders like chronic heartburn & irritable bowel syndrome (IBS)
  • Brain lesions (which are linked to Alzheimer's disease)
  • Premature aging
  • Premature death.

To prevent and heal from health issues you have to change and be adaptable.  I have found that I am much more adaptable when I am in a loving mind set.

 

Be Adaptable to Prevent and Heal from Health Issues

 

Your mental state is essential.  When stress shows up in your life make sure you view and approach it with a solution oriented mindset. 

 

Be aware that there is a stress, but put your attention on how to solve it rather than the problem itself. 

 

To prevent and heal from health issues it is important to focus on unconditional love.  If you don’t know what unconditional love is, let me tell you.  Unconditional love is loving someone, something, even yourself despite who or what they are, their beliefs, actions, feelings, etc. 

 

I know it can be challenging to love yourself and some people because you may feel they don’t deserve it, they are mean, they have done bad things, maybe even killed people.  But how do you expect you or that person to change if they only receive negative feelings, thoughts, or actions towards them. 

 

I have found to BE Unconditional Love, the first step is to develop Self-Love. 

 

Watch the video below, I explain a simple technique called Self-Love Supercharger: 9 Steps to Developing Self-Love.

 

It is a great exercise to do every day in the morning or when you are feeling out of balance to bring you back to a state of balance.

 

 
 
Self-Love Supercharger: 9 Steps to Develop Self-Love

 

  1. Close your eyes and put your awareness on your heart.
  2. While focusing on your heart pay attention to what it tells you.
  3. Any feelings or thoughts that come up, which are not healthy or balanced feeling, let them go.  To let them go, say, “I let this go.”
  4. After your heart feels clear and balanced, say, “I love myself unconditionally.”
  5. Allow in new healthy energy to fill you up.  To help with this say, I am open to allowing new healthy energy into my life.”
  6. Integrate this new healthy energy.  To do this say, I integrate the new healthy energy in my life.
  7. Visualize your heart being bright pink and take 7 deep breaths imagining your heart filling with pink energy and it getting bigger and expanding outward as far as you can imagine.  (You can do more that 7 breaths if you want.)
  8. Place your palms over your heart and take 9 deep breaths with a smile on your face.
  9. Laugh (even if it is fake).   

If you want to work with me one on one to develop your Self-Love, you can do so by signing up for a Distance Healing Session

How to Boost Your Heart's Coherence and De-Stress

 

 

 

"Healing is accomplished the instant the sufferer

no longer sees any value in pain."  

~ A Course In Miracles

 

Have you ever wondered if STRESS is the reason for your HEALTH ISSUES?

 

You try to keep your level of stress, but you still find yourself stressing about what to make for dinner, juggling work and kids, paying your bills on time and even trying to fit in some needed  “me” time. 

 

Have you noticed that you just don’t feel as alive or happy as you once did? 

 

Your body is telling you that it needs rest, you are fatigued, not sleeping well and even find yourself a little irritable, but you keep pushing yourself anyways.  

 

Your body is silently beginning to give you warning signs that you need to unplug and tune in! 

 

I know I have been there before.  In fact, I believe that stress is what brought about my very own health storm.  Learning to unwind the after effects of stress, has been one of my greatest healers.

 

So, if you feel emotional turmoil more than you feel happy, it's time to listen to yourself and do something about it!  

 

The Scoop On Stress

 

Stress really is all about your perception of life and your experiences.  It is often related to your feelings of:

  • Anxiety
  • Irritation
  • Hopelessness
  • Helplessness
  • Despair
  • Self -judgement
  • Resentment
  • Insecurities
  • Self-doubt 

Over time, these negative feelings and emotions become compounded and can trigger chronic stress. 

 

Stress is the number one reason for illness these days, and your body’s symptoms are often just signs and signals that something is wrong.

 

Negative emotions and feelings have been known to drain energy and wreak havoc on the body.

 

These emotions trigger the body's stress response and autonomic nervous system to a cascade of stressful hormones.

 

Stressful hormones not only lower your immune system, but they also weaken your digestion and steal your sex hormones and deplete them.  This leads to a chaotic rhythm of your heart. 

 

What is a Chaotic Rhythm of the Heart?

 

When your heart and brain have poor communicating, physical issues begin to show up in the body. 

 

People often treat these symptoms with medications, nutritional supplements, diet changes and even new exercise programs. 

 

The truth is, nobody wants to feel awful or imbalanced. 

 

The trouble with only treating your body on a physical level is that usually your results are not sustained.  If the original thought patterns and stressors is not dealt with, new symptoms often arise.

 

I know for me, I had to learn to tame my self judgement and learn acceptance so that I could surrender to the things I could not change.  It was a process of letting go, that brought me greater healing.

 

Your approach to healing needs to incorporate all levels for permanent healing.

 

Symptoms Of Stress

 

Stress has a laundry list of symptoms that manifest in the body over time.

 

A chronically stressed person can have any of the following symptoms and sometimes multiple symptoms.

 

They are...

  • Fatigue
  • Brain Fog
  • Memory and Concentration issues
  • Weight Gain
  • Hormonal Imbalances
  • Thinning hair
  • Blood Sugar Regulation issues
  • Inflammation
  • Autoimmunity
  • Digestive Issues (the gut is our second brain and closely linked)
  • Sluggish Detoxification Pathways
  • Multiple Chemical Sensitivities
  • Musculoskeletal imbalances and Misalignments
  • Cardiovascular issues
  • Respiratory issues
  • Anxiety

The list is long and certainly this is not an exclusive list.

 

Stress showed up in my body as chronic pain.  This triggered an even bigger stress response which eventually created a lot of hormonal imbalances for me.  I had burning pain, which created weight gain and sluggish detox pathways.  This was all from stress.

 

As you can see Stress can truly create many issues in the body and not something you want to let take control of your life and body!

 

Remember: illness is just a reminder that you have stepped away from wholeness.  It's finding your way back to that which will bring about TRUE HEALING.

 

"The miracle comes quietly into the mind

that stops an instant and is still"

~ A Course in Miracles

 

5 Steps To Quiet Your Mind and De-Stress For Better Health

 

Breathe  - Take time for yourself each day to slow down and focus on deep breathing.  Deep slow breaths have actually been proven to turn down the sympathetic nervous system or stress response and engage the parasympathetic healing response. 

 

It takes a few minutes each day to achieve a peaceful state through our breath.  

 

I have incorporated deep breathing into my everyday routine.  It brings about a sense of peacefulness and an abiltiy to cope with stress like I have never had before.

 

Visualize Love and Happy Memories  - One of the best ways to improve the communication between your heart and your brain is to sit quietly each day, or whenever you are feeling stressed, and visualize a happy, joyful, loving memory.  It can be something that you hold dear in your heart, or something you make up.  All it has to do is bring you that warm feeling in your heart.  At the same time breathe in deeply and slowly. 

 

I also find it helpful to smile while doing this.  It has been proven that a smile will release your happy hormones, even if it is a fake one! 

 

According to the HeartMath Institute, healthy heart and brain communication is beneficial for improving Heart Rate Variability. As a result, communication between the heart, brain and nervous system are enhanced. 

 

They have proven that positive emotions are associated with a specific physiological state called coherence.  When your heart and brain are in coherence you will have improved physiological functioning, emotional stability and mental performance.  So in a nutshell, better heart brain coherence equals less stress and negativity.

 

I have used the HeartMath clip in my meditations and deep breathing exercises to monitor how relaxed and peaceful my body is.  I have found it a great tool for showing me when I am stressed and how to better relax.

 

Make Time For Yourself – In today’s busy and hectic world, it is even more important to take time out for yourself.  Create time by...

  • Taking an uninterrupted bath
  • Going for a walk in nature
  • Meditation
  • Spend time with your friends

Getting out of your routine and remembering to have fun is what this is all about.  With more joy comes less stress, and a healthier immune system.

 

For me, daily walks on my own are a time to reflect, be one with nature and they bring me a sense of peace.

 

Let Things Go – In the past I used to get caught up in the small things.  Like whether or not the dishes got done, or the mess the kids left behind.  I realized that those things didn't deserve my energy.   I have gotten into the habit of using a great destressing technique called, Will this matter later.

 

The technique is done when stress arises by asking yourself, “Will this Matter Tomorrow?”  If the answer is no, then I do something that will bring me joy instead.

 

Count Your Blessings – I used to get caught up in all the things that were wrong with my life, and all the things I did not have.  Focusing on those things only intensified the amount of stress I had."

 

To change this I made a Gratitude List.  I wrote down all the things I am thankful for.  I focus on that list every day and add things when appropriate.  It reminds me that I have so much to be happy about.

 

Are there things that you do to combat stress and your inner thought demons?  I would love to hear from you!  Leave me a comment below.

An Essential Element For Optimal Health

“Our intention creates our reality.”

~ Dr. Wayne Dyer

 

As a teenager, my intentions and thoughts were often negative and affected my emotions.  I judged myself daily which made me feel angry and fearful.  Through this action of judgment and its associated emotions, my body became very sore and tight which caused mild depression, digestive problems, and relationship issues.

 

I had created quite a mess for myself.

 

As in my case, physical health issues can be the direct result of unhealthy thinking along with an emotional counterpart.  Energetically, it caused a contraction of the energy flow in my body which also affected my blood circulation. Less blood circulation allowed waste materials to build up in my body which led to inflammation, swelling, and pain.  

 

Eventually, I realized what I was doing was wrong and I felt pulled to make a change.

 

I began first by changing my intention about my life; I started with, “there must be more to life than this.” With that intention, I was intuitively guided to better choices and realized how I had created so much stress within myself.  

 

But why had I created so much stress in my life?

 

The stress was a result of how I viewed my life rather than what it actually was.  I now see how my life is a great opportunity to grow, expand, and become the best version of myself.  Sure this is not always easy. But when I have moved through my challenges, I have found that my life has always improved.

 

Where did it all start for me? Intentions.  I turned my intentions into action, which was the fun part.  When you live a life through great intentions, you deepen your love for yourself and others.

 

So how do you and I set great intentions?  

 

  1. Close your eyes and say, “Today I set my intention to live fully with love and optimal health.”
  2. With your eyes closed, ask yourself, “Is there anything I need to do right now to make this happen for me?”

Now that you have set your intention, you will be presented with opportunities to live fully with love and optimal health.  Therefore, you must take action when these moments occur.

 

If you are not able to take action right away, carry around a notebook, or use your smartphone to write down any messages or signs that you receive.

 

If you have trouble taking action, it likely has to do with your relationship with the unknown and the emotional response you will get from it.  In order to become a better version of yourself, it requires you go to a place that may be unfamiliar.

 

To help overcome hesitation, set your intention to have a healthy relationship with the unknown and change.  This is done by closing your eyes and saying to yourself, “I set my intention to have a healthy relationship with the unknown and change.”

 

After setting this intention, check in with yourself to see how you feel about taking a specific action that makes you feel uneasy or scared. If you feel good or neutral now….great.

 

However, if you still feel apprehensive, there is more for you to change and let go. At this point, I can assist you to overcome any challenges, so you may live fully with love and optimal health. To work with me, sign up for a Distance Healing Session.

THE STORM THAT TORE ME DOWN AND GIFTED ME SO MUCH

 

The Storm

 

My Storm came in like a tornado; it thundered in, twisted up my life, and left a lot of damage in its path!  I didn’t even see it coming.

 

In a matter of a day, my body fell apart.  It had forsaken me.

 

How could this happen?

 

One minute I was doing great. The next minute I was riddled with body wide nerve pain.

 

What I didn’t know was that I was stressed out.  I was not completely happy.  I had just given birth to a beautiful baby by emergency C-section, moved across the country to take care of my sister who was very sick, at the time, and opened an acupuncture clinic with my husband while doing Medical Intuitive Readings online.

 

I was tired, stretched myself too thin, and stressed out my body.  Not to mention my sleep was horrible with a nursing baby.  I was burnt-out, and it caught up to me.

 

Finally, my body  got my attention to slow down when I experienced sudden nerve pain from head to toe, tremors in my legs, headaches, and felt like I was walking on a ship. I suffered an overnight shakeup brought on by the Storm.   

 

I Had To Re-Invent Myself!

 

Over the next couple years, I had to reinvent myself.  I had to learn to trust and use my intuition to heal, because there was certainly no one else to do it for me.

 

I had to learn to take control of my mind and my body.  I consciously changed myself, and I listened to my intuition, most of all. I had a little voice guiding me. The same voice that I use everyday to help others with their health.

 

I had to trust that voice for my own health, battle my ego, and the will of what others thought was best for me.  Not an easy task!  But I am so thankful for the experience, as I now know what it truly means to be unstoppable.  To follow my heart, and let nothing keep me from my own truth.  I know what it means to value every moment and have gratitude for small things in life.  I also know my health did not move in a positive direction, until I got quiet within myself and truly listened to my inner voice.

 

I am happy to say that today I am well.

 

Today, my intuition for myself and to help others is on fire!

 

So What is a Storm?

 

Virtually all of us, at some point or another, will go through some kind of Storm in our lives.

 

The Storm can be anything from a healing crisis of acute magnitude to  emotional upheaval such as divorce or separation.   Whatever the Storm, it will rock your world. It will turn your life inside out and make you re-evaluate your entire life.

 

Essentially, I believe that the Storm is there to strengthen your faith, to bring you closer to the Divine, and to deepen your connection to your  spirit. It can also be your greatest teacher, if you surrender to it and let it guide you.

 

The Storm helps you wake up to the joy of life and follow your bliss, because life is short.

 

The Storm will make you go deep and listen to your innermost thoughts and feelings.  It will show you what you need to work on, and it will also strengthen your intuition, if you listen.

 

But make no mistake, you will come through the Storm and you will be changed in ways you could never imagine!

 

THE STORM IS A GIFT

 

How to Move through the Storm Gracefully

 

My advice for moving through your Storm is to first accept that it is happening. When we fight the flow of the Storm, life only feel worse and brings out your deepest fears. But if you accept your situation and make peace with it, it can show you things you may have never noticed in a fight or flight state of mind.

 

The second thing I recommend is to surrender. Surrender to the present moment. It may be a part of acceptance, but surrendering means to me, “To let go to the flow of divine will.”

 

Perhaps, your situation is meant to be.

 

What would peacefully moving with the flow of your situation look like rather than fighting it?

 

The third thing I recommend is to get quiet within yourself and work to strengthen your intuition.

 

Your inner self has all the answers you will ever need. It will guide you to places that need healing, locked up emotions that need to be let go, and it will even tell you why the Storm is happening.

 

Your inner self will always guide you to the right healer, the right place and even the right moment. So instead of feeling alone in the Storm, get to know your inner self and cultivate the love of your soul.

 

Trust me, the Storm will transform your life in the greatest way possible and there is a rainbow waiting for you on the other side.
