Healthy Eating is a Full Time Gig

A commitment to healthy eating takes time and repetition plus it takes practice.  I have been committed to eating healthy for quite some time and every day I get better but I still discover triggers that catapult me into making choices that do not contribute to my health journey.

Recently I have been traveling for work.  Many of my trips are day trips.  I have noticed that even though I pack my lunch and snacks I like to stop at gas stations and fast food restaurants.  So yesterday I got curious about these habits.

Why, if I like the foods I packed and I am prepared do I feel the need to buy myself food at a gas station or fast food restaurant?

Well after thinking about it I discovered that in my past this has been the fun part of traveling that I get to eat out and buy beef jerky or French fries.  I also discovered that when I am traveling I view it as an adventure and I do not want to eat my normal day to day food.

So yesterday in the parking lot of Whataburger I prayed for love, strength, and will.  I ate my packed lunch and I made a promise to myself.  From this moment forward I will plan ahead and when I am scheduled to travel I will buy foods that make me feel good but that differ from what I normally eat so that I can feed my adventurous spirit, literally with fun foods that are good for me.

I invite you to get curious.  If you want to eat healthily, what are your triggers?  Find a way to fulfill your needs in a healthy way.  Get creative!

I am rooting for you!

You Want to Heal Others? Here You Go…

If you are serious about helping someone heal then it is essential to do the following three things!  Before I share the three items I want to define healing because some of us have a very fixed judgement regarding the meaning of healing.
Heal– To make whole.
 
TO assist someone to heal it is important to remember this is NOT ABOUT YOU!
  1. LISTEN.  Listen to the person you are trying to help with an open mind and heart.  Do not think about what you want to say or try to control the conversation.  Take a deep breath and listen.  Even when you think your loved one has said everything they are going to say I encourage you to be still and continue to listen even if it is only to silence.  There is a magic that happens when you are silent,  the person you are listening to will begin to spill words and emotions and this is where the magic happens.  REMEMBER this is NOT ABOUT YOU!  You are hear to listen.  Simply LISTEN.
  2. HOLD the SPACE.  What does this mean?  When you are in the presence of the person you want to help heal be mindful of your state of mind and energy.  Take a deep breath and embody peace.  If we are to assist someone to heal it is imperative to be supportive and peaceful.  This allows the person to be themselves. It also allows the person to feel safe.  You are creating a safe emotional, mental, and spiritual environment where someone can be themselves and begin to process their thoughts and emotions.  It will help them begin to come up with their own solutions.
  3. PRAY.  Pray for the person you want to help heal.  Make the prayer about them not about you.  Pray for the person to find the answers for themselves.  Pray for their wellness.  Your prayers must be genuine and free from expectation.
I fully realize you may have been expecting me to share something concrete that you could do to help someone heal.  True healing is not something we give to someone else.  True healing comes from within.  We can assist someone with their healing by inspiring them to find their own answers and solutions.   I pray that this was helpful.  I pray for your wellness and the wellness of all those you love.
Please share this if it was helpful.  It is may greatest wish that you be well and live your best life ever!

Healing Frequencies??

I am so excited about this recent discovery.  I have been utilizing healing frequencies to help with indigestion, my adrenals, reducing anxiety, and the most impressive was for healing a migraine.

I will be up front I do not know the science behind this.  I just became curious and started to listen to different healing frequencies.  Honestly I was super skeptical and was really just listening out of curiosity.

At first I just liked how I felt but then one day I had a migraine.  I don’t get them frequently.  I thought, “Now is the time to see if it works.”  Migraine pain is tangible to me.  On a scale of 1-10.  10 being the worst pain ever like childbirth I was a 7.  I was not feeling good.

So I was at work and I did not want to go home.  I put the healing frequency for migraines and went on about my business.  Well somewhere between 30-45 minutes my migraine became a dull headache.  My pain was about a 3.  I was so impressed.  Things do not usually work for me.

So I invite you to check these two links out they are my favorite.  Decide for yourself if it is helpful to you.  If these particular ones are not needed you can search within YouTube to find the one you want to try.

and for adrenals

Please, please, please let me know if you try these frequencies or any others.  I am compiling data.  Wishing you nothing but the best!!  – Karla
